Newton’s Nook Designs January Release and Giveaway – Day 4 – My Type and Candy Heart

Hello and thanks so much for joining me for the final day the Newton’s Nook Designs January release!

All the new January products will be available for purchase on Friday, January 18th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

You're Just My Type #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - My Type stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today we have two small, but not less adorable stamp sets called My Type and Candy Heart. Both new sets come with the coordinating dies.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving both stamp sets away to a lucky winner so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

My first card features My Type stamp and die sets!

You're Just My Type #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - My Type stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

To start, I die cut the typewriter from Strathmore Bristol paper using My Type Die Set and stamped the coordinating image from My Type stamp set with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it doesn’t smudge when used with water. Next I did a super simple coloring using Tombow markers: n.N25, n.N60, n.452, n.703, n.772.

I prepared the sentiment element using the same My Type set and a speech bubble from Newton’s Day Dream stamp set.

For the background I die cut a stamp edge frame from Framework Die Set on a piece of a white cardstock and a big heat from Darling Hearts Die Set on a masking paper. Next I applied the negative part of the heart mask towards the center of my card and inked it with a light pink ink. Before removing the mask, I tape on top Tumbling Hearts stencil and inked the heart window once more creating a pattern on top. Finally I could reveal the mask and pop all the elements on a foam tape for a bit of dimension.

Creating my second card, I decided to stretch more Candy Heart stamp and die sets and created entire project using only this small bundle.

Candy Heart Die Set is done in a very clever way and has the shaped heart matching the heart stamp from Candy Heart stamp set plus another simple heart die. I used the second one and repeatedly die cut it on a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock that was previously inked with Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry Distress inks. Next I trimmed and scored in half a regular A2 size card base from a bright pink card stock. I placed the negative part of the die cut panel to the card base and marked all the heart windows with a pencil. Finally I heat embossed different sentiments from Candy Heart stamp set with a white embossing paste directly on the card front, erased all the pencil lines and popped the die cut panel on top. A few matching sequins finished this card.

Newton’s Nook Designs January Release and Giveaway – Day 3 – Love Owl-ways

Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the Newton’s Nook Designs January release! Thanks so much for joining me today!

All the new January products will be available for purchase on Friday, January 18th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Happy Valentine's Day #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Love Owl-ways stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

There would be no perfect January release without Valentine’s Day theme! Right?! That’s why I’m super excited to share with you the adorable owls from Love Owl-ways stamp set! In case you’re interested, this set comes with the coordinating dies!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving a new Love Owl-ways stamp sets away a 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 project featuring the cutie owl from Love Owl-ways stamp set with the balloons! You know that I’m a great fan of the balloons for all the occasions!!!

Happy Valentine's Day #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Love Owl-ways stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Since my choice in terms of color media was on watercolor markers, I went for my favorite Strathmore Bristol paper, VersaFine Onyx black ink for stamping since it’s waterproof and a small water brush from Pentel. I first made die cutting using Love Owl-ways and Playful Pandas Die Sets and then stamped the coordinating images from Love Owl-ways and Playful Pandas stamp sets.

As always I’m leaving you the colors I used on this project: TOMBOW n.026, n.703, n.723, n.761, n.815, n.835, n.873, n.905, n.977.

Assembling all the elements, I give a little bit of texture to the card base, embossing a white embossing paste on top through Tumbling Hearts stencil. Next I popped the colored stamps on a foam tape and have a little happy accident on adding a shiny coat of Nuvo Crystal Clear Drops that cracked, but gave me a super fun texture! I really like how it turned out and wonder if any of you had the same experience with Nuvo Drops? Finally, a heat embossed sentiment from the same Love Owl-ways stamp set on a piece of a black cardstock finished this project.

I just cannot stop playing more with the beautiful owls and here’s my second project!

My Heart Is OWL Yours #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Love Owl-ways stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I started with the same materials that I used on a previous card except of Sending Hugs stamp and die sets used to create a bunch of envelopes.

I’m leaving you all the exact number of watercolor markers used here as well: TOMBOW n.025, n.090, n.703, n.723, n.761, n.815, n.835, n.873, n.905, n.969.

My Heart Is OWL Yours #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Love Owl-ways stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I decided to keep everything clean and simple. A regular A2 size card base was masked and inked with a light lilac ink. Next I added a sentiment towards the top right corner by simply stamping it from the same Love Owl-ways stamp set with the same VersaFine Onyx Black ink I used for the images for a perfect match. Finally I popped all the watercolored elements on a foam tape for a fun dimensional look and finished with a few crystal clear sequins.

Craftin Desert Divas Monthly Social Media Challenge – February 2017

Happy Mail #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Little Lovelies Bear With Mailbox Digital Stamp by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Happy Friday!

Can’t believe that January is already gone and Valentine’s Day is approaching so fast! If you need some inspiration, Craftin Desert Divas has an amazing mood board for their Monthly Social Media Challenge.

cdd-feb

And here’s my take on it! Super clean and simple, but cheerful and bright happy mail card that can be used for any occasion!

cdd_msmc_feb-2017-i-3

The cute bear with a mailbox is CDD Little Lovelies Bear With Mailbox Digital Stamp. I printed it on a copic friendly paper with a laser printer and colored with copic markers. As always I’m leaving all the exact colors I used at the bottom of this post.

cdd_msmc_feb-2017-i-1

In my previous post I talked about Bristol paper and its use with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Well, this paper is also awesome for inkblended backgrounds. I used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo distress inks here.

Assembling the card, I popped up the bear with a mail box on a foam tape, added a bunch of hearts from Coffee Time Bunny Digital stamp, some shimmer and sequins.

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you join Craftin Desert divas February Monthly Social Media Challenge! They give some amazing prizes as well! Just remember to post your projects with #CDDMONTHLY and share them in the Craftin Desert Divas Facebook Gallery! If you aren’t a member, just request it here.

Craftin Desert Divas – January Release Sneak Peek – Spare Parts

cdd-jan

Hello everyone!

I’m back today with another post for Craftin Desert Divas featuring their January Release Sneak Peek.

cdd_spare-parts-jan-2017_i-1

Today I have a simple fun Valentine’s Day project for you made with a cute new stamp set called Spare Parts.

cdd_spare-parts-jan-2017_i-3

I created a pocket card perfect to insert a little love note or gift inside. I thought it would be fun to put there cinema tickets, an invitation to a date night or maybe even a gift card.

cdd_spare-parts-jan-2017_i-2

I started die-cutting two rectangles with Crazy Stitched Frame Dies the largest one from a pattern paper and the smallest from a regular white card stock. I trimmed a little bit the pocket die from one side and punched half of a circle on the top part. Then I adhered both pieces on the front panel of my card base and added a cute robot stamp colored with copic markers, popping it on a foam tape.

I finished the card adding a few small coordinating stamps and a sentiment from the same Spare Parts set along with a few matching sequins.
