Holiday Card Series 2020 – From Meow To You (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

From Meow To You #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - A Kitten Christmas 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 cute holiday kitty card featuring the most adorable new A Kitten Christmas stamp and die sets on a simple slimline card!

The minute I saw the new gorgeous kitty designs from Newton’s Nook, I immediately felt in love with them! And so I just cannot escape to play more with these cuties! To start, I die cut all three cats using the coordinating A Kitten Christmas Die Set, Strathmore Bristol paper and my Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. As usual, I saved and used the negative parts of the dies to used them later inside the MISTI tool for a perfect alignment while I was stamping the open images from A Kitten Christmas stamp set with waterproof VersaFine Onyx Black ink. I colored all the elements with Tombow markers and set aside to dry.

Here’s the complete list of all the colors used by me on this project: TOMBOW MARKERS N75, 158, 452, 665, 703, 725, 899, 946, 947, 977.

The slimline card base was trimmed from Neenah Solar White paper as 8 1/2″ x 7″ piece and then scored along the narrow side so that the final card measures 8 1/2″ x 3 1/2″. I die cut the additional faux stitched frame and three squares using the same Neenah Solar White paper for a perfect match with the card base and NND Slimline Frames and Windows Die Set. Each square piece was inked with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide ink from the top edge and then embellished with a falling snow effect applied with a plain white embossing paste through Petite Snow stencil. The matching kitty themed sentiment was simply stamped in the conner of the central square with the same VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it gives a nice, crisp and black impression that pops agains the inked background. Finally I assembled all the elements together with a foam tape for a fun dimensional look and finished with a few matching sequins.

On my stop of this hop you’ll find two cute and simple winter scenes both colored with Tombow markers! To start, I die cut all the shapes I needed for both cards from Strathmore Bristol paper using the coordinating Destination Christmas Die and Christmas Campers Die sets. I saved the negative parts of the dies and used them inside my MISTI tool for a perfect alignment while I was making the stamping using Destination Christmas and Christmas Campers stamp sets and VersaFine Onyx Black ink. Finally I proceeded with coloring.

Working on the first card featuring Destination Christmas sets. I created some snow slopes and hills using Land Borders Die Set and Tim Holtz Distress cardstock. I inked the sky portion and the top part of the hills with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide ink using the blending brush; added some tiny drops of a pearlescent solution and let everything air dry. The sky was enriched with a few stamped tone on tone snowflakes that come from Christmas Campers stamp set. I used the same Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide ink for stamping and then added more falling snow with some splatters of a white gouache.

Finally I started building up the snowy scene by adhering the top part directly to an extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) made from Neenah Solar White paper and by popping the hills with a bit of dimension.

As always, I’m sharing with you all colors used on the first project featuring Destination Christmas sets: TOMBOW MARKERS N25, N55, N79, 062, 173, 195, 373, 847, 856, 905, 992.

As the previous card, Christmas Campers were arranged on an extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) that was trimmed and scored from Neenah Solar White paper. The winter scene was die cut with Land Borders Die and Circle Frames Die sets. The sky was inked with Shaded Lilac and Mermaid Lagoon Distress inks using the blending brush, embellished with a falling snow applied with a plain white embossing paste through Petite Snow stencil and then covered with a vellum layer to give more depth and dimension to the background. Finally I added a simply stamped matching sentiment, popped the colored stamps on a foam tape and finished with a few clear irridiscent sequins.

And here’s the complete list of all the colors used on Christmas Campers card: TOMBOW MARKERS N15, N65, N75, 055, 195, 243, 623, 723, 761, 845, 992.

Holiday Card Series 2020 – From Out Gnome To Yours (ft. SugarPea Designs)

From Our Gnome To Yours #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Gnome For Christmas stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!

I’m super excited to be featured on SugarPea Designs blog!!! Today I came up with a clean and simple holiday card highlighting the cute Gnome for Christmas stamp set!

To start, I die cut all the shapes I needed for this project using the coordinating Gnome for Christmas SugarCut and my Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. I worked on Strathmore Bristol paper and stamped the outline images from Gnome for Christmas stamp set with with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since both these products work excellent with water based markers. The negative parts of the dies came very handy and made the perfect guide for the alignment inside the stamping positioning tool. Finally I colored all the stamps with Tombow markers, blending the colors with the small waterbrush from Pentel.

And here’s the complete list of all the colors used by me on this card: TOMBOW MARKERS N25, N79, 158, 177, 195, 526, 856, 905, 992.

An extended A2 size (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) white card base was trimmed and scored from Neenah Solar White paper along with a faux stitched rectangle with three square windows inside both die cut from Card Front Elements 3 SugarCut.  I prepared apart a sky background by inking a piece of Bristol paper with Faded Jeans Oxide Distress ink. I heat set the ink and then added the Falling Snow effect, by first taping the stencil to the paper and then applying a plain white embossing paste on top. I stamped the matching cute pun directly on the card front using the same VersaFine Onyx Black ink for a perfect match and started assembling all the elements together with a bit of dimension. The final touch gave a few clear iridescent sequins.
