Happy Friday!

I’m so excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog today and give you a fun idea on how you can stretch your holiday stamps and dies! Curious?

Love #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Christmas Cuddles stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

This year I decided to make a stamp focus card series and invite you to get another look on the crafty products you already have in your stash or bring more ideas on the same stamp or die set so that you can decide if you really want to get it! Today I would like to reuse holiday stuff and reinterpret it in a different way! And so I’m starting with a super adorable Newton’s Christmas Cuddles set from NND. This set is meant to be a holiday one, but the cute images are so versatile that you can easily cover many other occasions. I played with the lovely couple of kitties and transformed them into a love or Valentine’s Day card.

The kitties were stamped on a watercolor paper with a black waterproof ink, colored with regular watercolors and finally fussy cut right against the stamp lines. Then I built a shaker element reusing a Snow Globe Shaker Die Set and filling it with a tiny die-cut hearts from Darling Hearts Die Set, sparkling sequins and beads because I loved the idea of falling hearts on the love card. And since I already had Darling Hearts Die Set on my desk, I die-cut the work “love” from a bright pink cardstock and used it as the sentiment.

That’s all for today! Hope you like this sweet card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day! And, please, let me know if you’re interested to see more posts from my Stamp Focus Card Series!!!

You probably know that I’m a huge fan of the cute mischief Newton designed by Newton’s Nook Designs and love to color him like my kitties. And so I just couldn’t choose any purr-fect character to put on this card! LOL!!!

May Your Holidays Sparkle #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snow Globe Scenes and Newton's Curios Christmas stamp sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I mixed and matched a few fun products creating a window scene on this clean and simple project. First of all, I stamped with a copic friendly black ink a cute kitty from Newton’s Curious Christmas and the city skyline from Snow Globes Scenes stamp sets. Then I colored everything with copic markers, fussy cut right against the stamp lines and colored the trimmed edges with a black marker to hide any imperfection. I also prepared the snowy sky background directly on my A2 size card base using a few blue shades of copic markers and started assembling everything. In case you’re interested, I’m leaving all the exact colors I used here at the bottom of this post. I added a bit of dimension with a foam tape to the layout and simply stamped the sentiment from Sentiment Of The Season set with the same black ink I used before along with Santa’s sleigh that comes with Snow Globes Scenes stamp set. Of course, I just couldn’t skip a few clear sequins and a shimmer pen as a finish touch.

Stretch Your Dies Card Series – Snow Globe Shaker Die (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

Joy #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snow Globe Shaker Die by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Happy Thursday!

I’m so excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog today and give you another look at just released amazing Snow Globe Shaker die set and some great supplies for shaker cards that NND carries now in their online shop!

Joy #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snow Globe Shaker Die by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook


I’m really in LOVE with these fantastic dies! So many possibilities and so much fun to play! And so my first project is a show globe clear shaker tag! What do you think about this idea? I die-cut all the elements from Snow Globe Shaker die twice since I needed to cover both front and back. Then I prepared two die-cut frames from the double sided adhesive foam, but you can definitely use only one layer instead since this foam is quite thick and it is really a must-have! Once I ran it back and forth in my Big Shot with a platform closed for the wafer thin dies, I finished to have a perfectly die-cut frame that held its shape as well. And don’t throw away any extra piece you left with since you can use them for the snow globe base. Assembling the tag I filled it with snowflakes that were also die-cut using the same Snow Globe Shaker die set and finished with the shiny die-cut sentiment “JOY”.

Joy #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snow Globe Shaker Die by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Creating my second project which is turned out as a card, I used the same Snow Globe Shaker die, but in a very different way! I started building my background first by ink blending Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch Distress inks. While the inks were still wet I put on top new just released Snowfall stencil and dabbed off some color with a wet baby wipe. I purposely was not very precise since I wanted to achieve a little bit splotchy distress look.Joy #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snow Globe Shaker Die by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

While the background was drying, I die-cut some snowflakes and the sentiment from a vellum and a glitter paper and finally assembled everything popping the background on a foam tape for a bit of dimension!

That’s all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day!

Merry Christmas #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snow Globe Shaker Die by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookI combined here Snow Globe Shaker Die and some stamps from Snow Globe Scenes that were heat embossed with a white embossing powder on a gradient watercolor background! I’m also super excited to announce that NND is bringing to their shop the coordinating accessories essential for making the shaker snow globe element. My readers probably know that I never had a success die-cutting a foam and used to stuck a few layers of the cardstock building shaker elements! Well, I was really AMAZED with this fabulous double-sided foam! I ran the shaker frame from Snow Globe Shaker Die set back and forth in my Big Shot machine using the platform closed for the wafer thin dies and the foam was cut out and hold the shape perfectly! Wow!!!

Merry Christmas #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snow Globe Shaker Die by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I used two layers of the foam tape assembling this card to bring more space inside for the beads and sequins, but you can definitely use only one layer since this foam is quite thick! And, of course, I just couldn’t not to use the “merry” die because I’m a big fan of sentiment dies and love adding them to my designs. Finally the heat embossed small word Christmas from Simply Seasonal stamp set finished this card.

'tis The Season #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snow Globe Scenes stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookMy second card is totally different and shows you how to use Snow Globe Scenes stamp set by itself since it filled with a whole bunch of the cute images great to build cute winter or holiday scenes.

'tis The Season #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snow Globe Scenes stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
Creating this simple card, I decided to use my copic markers and traditional Christmas colors! I stamped some images directly on top of the card base while the other elements were die-cut with the coordinating dies and added with a bit of dimension toward the bottom part on the card front. The sentiment was simply stamped with the same black ink I used for the scene stamps and a few clear sequins added a finish touch.
