Light Up The Holiday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Holiday Lights stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today just to stay on topic I decided to put up some happy holidays lights on my card and play more with small, but super cute Holiday Lights stamp set. To start, I die cut a bunch of small lights using the coordinating Holiday Lights Die Set on Neenah Solar White paper. When you have to make multiple images the coordinating dies comes so handy and saves a lot of time! Since the light bulbs are such a simple shape, I decided to make no-line coloring with copic markers because it’s fun and allows you also to practice and try different color combos.

I stamped the light bulbs from Holiday Lights set with a light dye ink using my MISTI tool and the negative part of the die and finally colored all the lights with copic markers. Working on the background, I inked Gingham pattern with a very light gray ink and stamped in the center the matching sentiment from the same Holiday Lights stamp set. I traced two curved lines with a black marker to use as the light strings. Assembling the card, I popped all the colored elements on a foam tape for a fun dimensional look and added a generous coat of a clear shimmer pen.
As always I’m leaving you the complete list of all the colors used on this project: COPIC T1- T3; V0000-V01-V04; RV00-RV10-RV02; RV21-RV23-RV25; R02-R05; Y00-Y11-Y15; G00-G02-G03; B0000-B00-B01-B02; YG00-YG01-YG13; YR00-YR02-YR04; BG10-BG11-BG13; BG0000-BG000-BG10-BG23; B21-B24-BG70.

Happy Holidays Card (ft. Purple Onion Designs’ New Collection Designed By Julian Charlton)

Happy Holidays #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

Hello and welcome!!!

I’ve popped in again to showcase another cute example made with new fabulous collection from Purple Onion Designs designed By Julian Charlton.

Sale allert! Purple Onion Designs has a great sale these days! You can get all the new and old stamps at a discounted price until December, 13. So don’t forget to grab your favorites.

Although most of the stamps from the new release are silhouettes, there’s an adorable Happy Winter Forest Friends set with open images too filled with the cutest critters and a few amazing sentiments.

Happy Holidays #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

Since my intention was to color with watercolor markers, I made the stamping on Strathmore Bristol paper with VersaFine Onyx Black ink because it’s waterproof. I colored all the stamps with watercolor markers and then fussy cut right against the stamp lines. Just to finish with colors, I quickly inked an additional rectangle with Mermaid Lagoon Distress ink creating a sky portion to put behind the bear and the tree. For the background I used new Let It Snow Background stamp. I stamped it twice: first on a white card base with a light gray ink and then heat embossed with a white embossing powder on an inked sky. The matching heat embossed sentiment from the same Happy Winter Forest Friends set was added on a strip of a bright pink cardstock and popped on a foam tape along with other colored images.

As always, I’m leaving the complete list of all the colors used on this project: TOMBOW MARKERS N79, N95, 090, 133, 126, 452, 723, 725, 755, 977; ZIG CLEAN COLOUR MARKERS n.61 Light Brown, n.62 Dark Brown.

Purple Onion Designs’ New Silhouettes Collection Designed By Julian Charlton

Season's Greetings #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

Hello and welcome!!!

Today I’m continuing sharing some samples with amazing new Purple Onion Designs’ Silhouettes Collection Designed By Julian Charlton.

Sale allert! Purple Onion Designs has a great sale these days! You can get all the new and old stamps at a discounted price until December, 13. So don’t forget to grab your favorites.

In this post I’m featuring new Santa’s On The Way stamp set. The images from this set are quite big and can easily fill the whole A2 size card front.

Season's Greetings #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

On my card I started with a piece of Watercolor Cardstock from Tim Holtz and a masking paper die cut in a circle shape. I masked the central part of the rectangle and blended around Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide, Wilted Violet Distress Oxide and Black Soot Distress inks. Next I removed the mask and added Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seeds Distress ink in the center creating the Moon in the night sky. I added a few water droplets on top of the inked background and heat set everything before stamping the silhouette images and sentiment banner from Santa’s On The Way stamp set. The final touch added a heat embossed falling snow from another new Let It Snow Background stamp that comes as a one big piece.

Holiday Card Series 2019 – Nailed It Shaker Card (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

Nailed It #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Christmas Haul stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Hello and welcome!

I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and even more excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog sharing a sweet shaker Christmas card made with a small but not less adorable Christmas Haul stamp set.

You’ll be reading this post on Black Friday Day and so shopping was obviously a perfect theme to play with. I started with Strathmore Bristol paper and the coordinating Christmas Haul Die Set to die cut the lady holding a bunch of packs and a few additional gift boxes. I used the negative part of the dies into my stamping positioning tool to help me with the alignment while I was stamping the images from Christmas Haul stamp set with VersaFine Onyx Black ink. Finally I colored everything with watercolor markers.

In case you’re wondering, here are all the exact colors used on this project: TOMBOW DUAL BRUSH MARKERS 243, 296, 452, 703, 761, 847, 873, 912; ZIG CLEAN COLOUR REAL BRUSH MARKERS n.71 Flesh Colour.

Nailed It #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Christmas Haul stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Working on the shaker element, I trimmed a rectangle from Neenah Solar White paper slightly smaller than a regular A2 size card base and die cut a circle window in the center. I adhered a piece of a clear acetate from the back side of the shaker part and popped the whole element on a foam tape. Before sealing the shaker window I inked the card bade through Music Stencil with Cracked Pistachio and Mermaid Lagoon Distress inks and then blended more ink directly on the base to achieve a light background. Finally I filled the shaker part with some colored boxes and a few clear iridescent sequins. The sentiment from the same Christmas Haul stamp set was simply heat embossed on a strip of a black cardstock and popped on a foam tape along with the lady and left-over gift packs.

Today I’m featuring English Rooftops stamp. It’s a big bold solid stamp that can cover the whole horizontal layout of the A2 size card front. I used VersaFine Onyx Black ink and simply stamped it on Neenah Solar White paper. Next I added the Moon and a few clouds from new Happy Skies stamp set using masking technique. Finally I inked the top part of the card front with Peacock Feathers, Blueprint Sketch and Wilted Violet Distress inks creating a night sky. I let everything air dry well and then heat embossed on top new Let It Snow Background stamp. The final touch added the matching white sentiment that also comes from new Happy Winter Forest Friends stamp set.
