For each challenge they post an amazing cupcake photo and color combo for inspiration! Everybody likes cupcakes, right?Many Thanks #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Autumn Leaves Dies by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Orange, green and brown seemed to me a perfect color combo for an autumn thanks card! Plus it’s always so handy to have a few thanks cards in the stash! Playing around the autumn theme, I decided to use beautiful leaves from Newton’s Nook Designs Autumn Leaves die set as a focal point.

I die-cut some leaves and acorns from a watercolor cardstock along with a cute little tag from NND Tags Times Two die set and blended on top a few shades of Distress inks.

Wishing You Choo Choo a Merry Christmas #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - All Aboard For Christmas stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I started working on a Bristol paper and stamped a bunch of images with a waterproof ink since I was going to work with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I went for a non traditional shades choosing a color palette to use here and made a simple a little bit splotchy and unperfected watercoloring!

The coordinating dies came so useful to trim very fast all the colored stamps that were arranged with a bit of dimension, of course, on a card base where I created a soft pattern by repeatedly stamping the “Fa-La-La” sentiment from Sentiments of the Season set. Finally the simple heat embossed sentiment from the same All Aboard for Christmas stamp set and a few clear sequins finished this cute card.

My second card is very different, but quick and easy to recreate since I worked with a new amazing Snowfall stencils and beautiful, very elegant sentiments from Sentiments of the Season set.

Once taped well the stencil to a piece of a white cardstock, I made and ombré ink blending using Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch Distress inks. I also smooched Faded Jeans Distress ink on another piece of the cardstock, broke apart the sentiment stamp and heat embossed it on three narrow rectangles. I popped up both the snowflake panel and the sentiment on a foam tape just for something little extra and added a few white accents using Nuvo Crystal drops in white color.

I’m so excited to introduce you today the very first stamp set of this fabulous autumn release along with a gorgeous beautiful stencil! So let’s start!!!

All the new September products will be avaliable for purchaise on Friday, September 15th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Truly Grateful #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Shades of Autumn stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookNND came out with some different and absolutely stunning products this month! Where all those fabulous ideas come from?! LOL!!! I don’t know the answer, but I’m totally in love with new Shades of Autumn stamp set! It’s very different from all the other solid stamps in my stash and gives absolutely amazing results all the times! Those leaves look so realistic and I assure you that they are even more beautiful in real life!!! Of course, as other NND stamp sets there are available the coordinating dies! And no need to tell you a lot about new Falling Leaves stencil! It’s absolutely amazing!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving Shades of Autumn 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!

 

And here’s my first card featuring both new products!

Truly Grateful #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Shades of Autumn stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I started with an ombre stamping aligning the leave stamps in a stamping positioning tool! First I inked the stamps with the lightest shade of the dye ink and after added some darker spots for more dimention and interest! I dabbed the stamps with a clean cloth before transfering the ink to the paper to soften the edges and achieve more gradient look!

Truly Grateful #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Shades of Autumn stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookThe leaves from Shades of Autumn stamp set are pretty big so I tried to leave the card background quite clean and simple. I added a bit of color ink smooching Peacock Feathers Distress ink, heat embossing the sentiment from the same stamp set with a Liquis Platinum embossing powder on a piece of a black card stock, adding tone on tone details on one side throuhg Falling Leaves stencil and finally adding some matching splotches and a few glossy details!

Give Thanks #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Shades of Autumn stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookOn my second card I made a circle focal point in the center of the card base and heat embossed the beautiful handwritten sentiment in white on a kraft card base that come with Shades of Autumn stamp set!

Give Thanks #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Shades of Autumn stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookThen I masked the sentiment and added the falling leaves around it! I decided for a tone on tone gradient look that would match the kraft card base so I mixed my own shades of the embossing paste from a plain white one. I used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress inks for that. Once removed the stencil, I sprinkled some clear sparkling embossing powder on top, let everything air dry for about 40 minutes and heat set the embossing powder only at that point! Finally I assembled everything adding a few colorful details!

Thank You Pop Up Shaker Card

Thank You #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Mini Thank You stamp set by Studio Katia #studiokatia

Happy Friday!

I’ve popped in for a super quick post just to share this pop up shaker card I’ve made a few days ago.

Thank You #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Mini Thank You stamp set by Studio Katia #studiokatia

Do you remember that recently Newton’s Nook Designs and Studio Katia made a super fun summer blog hop showcasing NND stamps paired with SK dies! If not, you can check my post right here. Katia was sooooooo kind to send me some extra goodies including this Mini Thank You stamp set! And so I thought that it would be a perfect way to say thank you creating a small 4 Bar card for her!

Thank You #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Mini Thank You stamp set by Studio Katia #studiokatia

I started this card with a shaker element die-cutting 5 times Inside Scalloped Circle Dies from Craftin Desert Divas. First I colored with copic markers the inside part of the die, making a gradient background and adding some details with a copic colorless blender and only then heat embossed with a white embossing powder the beautiful hand written sentiment from Mini Thank You set. Make sure to follow the same order since embossing could ruin your copic markers!!!

Thank You #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Mini Thank You stamp set by Studio Katia #studiokatia

Assembling the card, I stacked together the frame elements of the Inside Scalloped Circle Dies and put like a puzzle the negative part inside. The shaker part was popped up on top of the card base previously embossed with an embossing paste creating non-distractive white on white irregular dots pattern. The inside element was filled with a mix of sequins that had some pretty butterfly confetti inside (sorry, cannot find the link to this mix) and a few matching butterflies colored with copics from the same Mini Thank You were applied on the card base.

That’s all for today! Hope you like this clean simple card with a pop up shaker element!  Have a great week-end!

Tatiana
