Happy Thursday!

I’m so excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog today and give you another look at the super fun and cute Santa Paws Newton stamp set!

You probably know that I’m a huge fan of the cute mischief designed by NND and love to color him like my kitties. And so I just couldn’t let Santa Paws Newton stamp set die in my stash without a chance to appear on this year holiday cards.

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

Creating this cheerful and bright watercolor card, I played with my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers. I used this particular color media a lot during last year and figured out my win win combo that gives me the best results: Bristol paper from Strathmore brand plus a watercolor brush from Pentel. While the watercolor images were drying, I prepared a simple layout die-cutting a scalloped rectangle from Fancy Edges Tag Die Set and adding a little bit of texture and interest with a white embossing paste applied through Snowfall stencil. While the embossing paste was still wet, I sprinkled a clear glitter on top and let everything air dry before removing the excess. This further step gave a frosty and snowy feeling to the card. Finally I assembled all the elements with a bit of dimension popping up the images on a foam tape.

That’s all for today! Hope you like this cute card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day!

You Make Cold Days Warmer #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Santa Toucan Party stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

There couldn’t be any proper date for this hop because today December, 8 in Italy we celebrate Feast of the Immaculate Conception! It’s day off and it’s tradition to deck the halls right on this day!!! So meanwhile you’re reading this post, I’m putting up my christmas tree, lights and nativity scene. It really beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!! LOL!!!

For this hop I created a clean and simple card with a pop of bright colors on a tropical birds dressed up for holiday period! I thought it would be fun to give another “life” and interpretation to the summer stamps and transform them into the holiday ones! And so I started stamping with a black waterproof ink on a hot pressed watercolor paper the cute toucans from NND Toucan Party stamp set along with some winter accessories from Newton’s Holiday Mischief and Santa Paws Newton sets. I colored everything with regular watercolors, fussy cut right up against the stamp lines and colored all the edges with a black marker to hide any imperfection due to the cutting. For the background I used a negative part of the circle die-cut from a masking paper, added Distress Oxide ink in Peacock Feathers color. I let everything dry before applying a textured snowflakes through gorgeous Snowfall stencil  using a white embossing paste. Finally I assembled everything popping up some elements on a foam tape and simply stamping the sentiment and a few beautiful snowflakes with the same black ink I used before.

Happy Thursday!

I’m so excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog today and give you another look at the super fun and cute Santa Paws Newton stamp set!

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

You probably know that I’m a huge fan of the cute mischief designed by NND and love to color him like my kitties. And so I just couldn’t let Santa Paws Newton stamp set die in my stash without a chance to appear on this year holiday cards.

Here Comes Santa Paws #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Santa Paws Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookI started this card by stamping the kitty image and the little mouse with a copic friendly ink on a copic friendly paper since my intention was to make coloring part, as you may guess, with copic markers. LOL!!! Once finished with coloring, I die-cut both stamps using the coordinating dies and worked on the layout! I added some coordinating colors to the background through Snowfall stencil with Tumbled Glass, Spun Sugar and Shaded Lilac Distress inks and an ink blending tool. Next came a focal point created out of a tag and stitched snow slops die-cut from Fancy Edges Tag Die Set  and Land Border Die Set. Once added the colors with the same Distress inks I used previously on the card base and the texture with a white gel pen to the little snow scene, I heat embossed the sentiment with Liquid Platinum embossing powder from Ranger, popped a few elements on a foam tape for some dimension and finally added a few non distracting sequins.

That’s all for today! Hope you like this cute card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day!

Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release and Giveaway – Day 4 – Naughty or Mice & Santa Paws Newton


Hello and welcome to the last day of the Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release!

All the new October products will be available for purchase on Friday, October 20th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Not A Creature Was Stirring... #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Naughty or Mice stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookCuteness overloads today on my blog!!! Two SUPER FUN, CUTE and ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE stamp sets Naughty Or Mice and Santa Paws Newton are coming to the NND store tomorrow and couldn’t wait to share them with you! Both of them as always have the coordinating dies. And let me tell you, all creature fans, you are going to love them!!!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving each new stamp set away to one lucky winner so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

Here’s my first clean and simple card with the cutest little mouse from Naughty Or Mice stamp set. I went for a non traditional Christmas colors inspired by the bright yellow from the cheese part of the stamp, I decided to add the complementary purple color and create a little bit of contrast!

Not A Creature Was Stirring... #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Naughty or Mice stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I stamped the cute creature on a Bristol paper with a waterproof ink, colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and die-cut using the coordinating dies. In case you are interested, I’m leaving all the exact colors I used here at the bottom of this post. For the background I used the negative part of a circle mask and blended inside Sqeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seeds and Wild Holly Distress inks. I also used a new Holiday Foliage stencil in a creative way: I masked with a piece of posted tape the three berries and added them here and there creating a few matching accents. The sentiment from the same Naughty Or Mice set was simply heat embossed with a white embossing powder.

There would be no purr-fect release without the cutest mischief Newton! LOL! This time he has “got” somewhere the  Santa’s costume and feels like he is a real Santa! (Sorry, I can’t stop laughing myself every time I see this cuteness!) To be serious my second card features, of course, Santa Paws Newton stamp set.

I Believe #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Santa Paws Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The adorable stamps once more were die-cut with the coordinating dies and colored with Zig markers.

I Believe #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Santa Paws Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

For the background I created a rectangle window on the additional panel and blended a few Distress Oxide inks directly on the card base. Interpreting this part as a sort of the night sky, I added falling snow using new Snowfall stencil and a white embossing paste. When I applied the embossing paste the ink was still a little wet and so it soaked into the embossing paste creating a fun soft look. A simple heat embossed sentiment and a few sequins finished this cute card.
