Christmas #handmade tags by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Pines & Holly Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I noticed that I made so many colored projects lately and that’s why I decided to change and switch to another favorite technique. In fact, today I came out with two holiday tags completely die cut from a few lovely NND sets. To start, I prepared the tag bases, die cutting the shapes from Simon Says Stamp Lipstick Red Cardstock using NND Fancy Edges Tag Die Set along with two patterned tag tops. In case you’re interested, I’m using Big Short Die Cutting Machine for many years and very satisfied with it!!!

Then I switched to the Christmas Wreaths. The holy leaves and pine branches come from NND Pines and Holy Die Set. I used two different shades of green to built the wreaths alternating Simon Says Stamp Green Apple and Bazzill Gumdrop cardstock.

The die cut sentiments are from Snow Globe Shaker Die (“Joy”) and Main Street Christmas Die (“Noel”) Sets. Both were die cut from a plan white cardstock first and then embellished with a sparkling layer from DCWV Glitter Metallic Cardstock pad. Assembling the wreath together I used Multi Medium Matte liquid adhesive since it dries clear and matte. As a final touch I added a few tiny gold droplets of Heidi Swapp Color Shin Gold spray that tied the golden sentiments together with the rest of the tags.

That’s all for today! Hope these holiday tags will inspire you!!! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day!

Holiday Ornament #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Christmas Roundabout stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The last day of the holiday release has reserved us a super cute Holiday Post stamp set that comes with the coordinating Holiday Post Die Set. No need to tell you that I’m totally in love with the adorable critters! Plus there’s an amazing Christmas Roundabout stamp set that enriches the NND Roundabout collection and as all other stamps coordinates perfectly with Circle Frames Die and Banner Trio Die sets.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away both new Holiday post and Christmas Roundabout stamp sets to lucky winners so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

The super adorable critters from Holiday Post stamp set are a way too cute and don’t need much thinking on the card layout! In fact, I tried to highlight the beautiful design of this set with coloring and kept the background very simple. To start I die cut from Copic X-Press paper the critters, using the coordinating Holiday Post Die Set and my Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. As always, I saved and used the negative parts of the dies to help me with the alignment while I was stamping the open images from Holiday Post stamp set using MISTI tool and Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Finally I spent some happy time coloring the image with copic markers.

And, as always, here’s the complete list of all the COPIC MARKERS used on this project: cat YR30-YR31-Y21-YR24; dog E0000-E30-E31-E33-E35; T0-T1-T3; R00-R20-R22-R24-R46; YG00-YG01-YG07; G20-G24-G46; BG10-BG11-BG23.

Sending Joyful Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Holiday Post stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

An extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) was trimmed and scored from Neenah Solar White paper. I masked two sides of the card front with a sticky tape and inked at an angle the light blue background with Simon Says Stamp Sea Glass dye ink and the blending brush, trying to give an ombré effect that fades into white. Next I stamped the sentiment from Holiday Post set and added a few snowflakes to the background by stamping some with Simon Says Stamp Surf Blue ink, heat embossing the others with a white embossing powder or simply drawing a few with a white gel pen. Finally I popped the colored critters on a foam tape for a fun dimensional look and finished with a few clear sequins.

My second card that features Christmas Roundabout stamp set, turned out as a holiday ornament. This card can also be used as a Christmas home decor or as a gift tag. This time I started directly with stamping on Copic X-Press paper using Christmas Roundabout stamp set. I framed the stamped image with a faux stitched die from Circle Frames Die Set and colored everything with copic markers.

These are all the colors used by me on this card: COPIC MARKERS R20-R22-R24-R26; BG10-BG11-BG23; YG00-YG01-YG07; T0-T1.

A slightly larger scalloped die from the same Circle Frames Die Set was used to create the card base. I die cut the die twice from a light gray cardstock and then glued together the top parts of both layers. An ornamental silver sparkling top was also die cut twice from Ornamental Shaker Die Set and adhered from both sides on the card base. Finally I assembled all the layers and finished with a matching grayish silver bow and a few clear sparkling sequins.

Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release and Giveaway – Day 3 – A Kitten Christmas and Christmas Puppies


Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the Newton’s Nook Holiday release! Thanks so much for joining me again during this week!

All the new Holiday products will be available for purchase on Friday, October 23th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Meowy Christmas #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - A Kitten Christmas stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

There's Always Next Year To Be Good #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Christmas Puppies stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Cuteness overloads on the third day of the holiday release with A Kitten Christmas and Christmas Puppies stamp sets! Do you notice a new and absolutely adorable design of kitties from NND? Love so much those big eyes and the funny mischievous expressions on the kitty’s faces! Both new stamp sets come with the coordinating A Kitten Christmas Die and Christmas Puppies Die sets.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away both new A Kitten Christmas and Christmas Puppies stamp sets to lucky winners so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

 

My first card that features A Kitten Christmas stamp and die sets, has a clean and simple design.

Meowy Christmas #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - A Kitten Christmas stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

To start I die cut from Copic X-Press paper the kitty shape and lots of Christmas lights, using the coordinating A Kitten Christmas Die Set and my Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. As always, I saved and used the negative parts of the dies to help me with the alignment while I was stamping the open images from A Kitten Christmas stamp set using MISTI tool and Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Finally I proceeded with copic coloring, making the kitty look like my sweet boy Tommy (Sacred Birman Cat).

For those who are wondering about the exact colors used on this project, I’m leaving all the numbers of COPIC MARKERS: cat E40-E41-E42-E43-E44-E47-E49; RV00-RV02-RV11-RV04-RV19; YG00-YG05-YR09; Y11-Y17-Y18; FV02-B63; YR02-YR04-YR07; BG10-BG13; B000-B04; T0-T1.

Meowy Christmas #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - A Kitten Christmas stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The background was inked directly on an extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) made from Neenah Solar White paper. I used new just released on Monday Tiny Trees stencil, Tumbled Glass Distress ink and the blending brush. Once tapped well the stencil on the card base to prevent any movement, I inked the pattern keeping my hand lighter towards the center of the card front. Then I lifted and shifted the stencil in order to add more inked trees between the rows as you see on the pictures. I added a few super tiny drops of a pearlescent solution just for something little extra along with a simply stamped sentiment that comes from the same A Kitten Christmas stamp set. I hand draw the light string and finally arranged the Christmas lights and the kitty.

There's Always Next Year To Be Good #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Christmas Puppies stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Working on my second card that features Christmas Puppies stamp and die sets, I decided to mix and match it with A Kitten Christmas since both stamps has the same size and style! I did exactly the same steps as on a previous card die cutting and stamping the fun puppy and the kitty, but using Strathmore Bristol paper and VersaFine Onyx Black ink this time since my intention was to color the stamps with water based markers. An extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) was trimmed and scored from a kraft cardstock. I added on top the cute holiday pattern by inking another newbie – Reindeer stencils with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink for a tone on tone look. I partially covered the card front with a vellum rectangle die cut with Frames & Flags Die Set where I heat embossed the funniest pun from A Kitten Christmas stamp set. Assembling all the elements together, I popped the cute critters on foam tape and finished with a few clear sparkling sequins.

As always, I’m sharing with you all colors used by me on the second project: TOMBOW MARKERS N55, N79, 126, 133, 847, 856, 899, 905, 946, 947, 977, 991, 992, 993.

Today I’m so excited to share with you two new absolutely adorable stamp sets: Dear Santa and Nutcrackers. Both of them are just perfect for every holiday project! In case you’re interested, there’re two coordinating Dear Santa Die and Nutcrackers Die sets too!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away both new Dear Santa and Nutcrackers stamp sets to lucky winners so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

My first card featuring Dear Santa stamp and die sets turned out as a CAS project. To start, I die cut from Copic X-Press paper the Santa and gift shapes using the coordinating Dear Santa Die Set and my Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. I saved and used the negative parts of the dies inside the MISTI tool to help me with the alignment while I was stamping the open images from Dear Santa stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Next I colored all the elements with copic markers.

In case you’re interested, I’m leaving you all the exact colors used for coloring: COPIC MARKERS skin E50-E53-E55; R000-R20-R22-R24-R27-R46; YG0000-YG00-YG01-YG03-YG25-YG67; Y11-Y13-Y15-Y17; YR04-YR07; T0-T1-T3-T5-T7-T9.

Here Comes Santa Claus #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Dear Santa stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

An extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) was trimmed and scored from Neenah Solar White paper. I repeatedly stamped with a very light gray ink (Simon Says Stamp Fog dye ink) the small accessories from Dear Santa and Christmas Campers stamp sets all across the background and then added a bold black sentiment on top. I popped the colored Santa and gifts on a foam tape and finished with a few clear sparkling sequins, a coat of a shimmer glitter pen and some white accents made with a gel pen.

My second card features Nutcrackers stamp and die sets plus new just released yesterday Tiny Trees stencil. This time I started with Strathmore Bristol paper and VersaFine Onyx Black ink since my intention was to color the images with water based markers. I made the same steps as describe above, first die cutting two nutcracker shapes with the coordinating Nutcrackers Die Set and then stamping the open images from Nutcrackers stamp set. Finally I proceeded with  coloring using my Tombow markers.

As always, I’m sharing with you all colors used on this project as well: TOMBOW MARKERS N25, N79, 025, 055, 835, 847, 905.

An extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) that was trimmed and scored from my favorite Neenah Solar White paper. I added a slightly smaller light gray rectangle on top with the holiday tree pattern achieved by inking Tiny Trees stencil with the matching light gray ink (used Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock and dye ink). Next I trimmed and glued directly on the background some narrow strips of the colorful cardstock and finally popped the Nutcrackers on a foam tape. The final step was a die cut sentiment that comes inside the coordinating Nutcrackers Die Set.
