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.

Holiday DIY Envelopes (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

Special Delivery #handmade envelope by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Happy Mail stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Hello and welcome!

So happy you’ve joined me today!!! In this post I’m sharing a cute project and some ideas how to stretch your stamps and make your holiday cards even more special!

Special Delivery #handmade envelope by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Happy Mail stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookThere’s no doubt that a matching envelope will bring your creation to the whole other level and will add that something little extra!!! I chose to play with  Newton’s Happy Mail stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs since the super adorable mischief popping out from a mail box seems to be just purr-fect for decorating envelopes and transformed the stamp info a holiday one by simply adding a few extra images from Frozen Friends and my ever favorite Newton’s Holiday Mischief stamp sets.

Special Delivery #handmade envelope by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Happy Mail stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookFirst of all I cut and scored the envelopes from a thing inexpensive Bristol paper that I found in my local craft store since I was going to use Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers for coloring, but you can definitely use any paper or even store bought envelopes. Just be sure not to use watercolor media on them! I proceeded with stamping a snow hill from Frozen Friends stamp set towards the left bottom coner of the envelope, prepared the relative mask for this image and place it on top. That allowed me to switch the grass part of the original image from Newton’s Happy Mail set and create a holiday winter scene. Then I simply stamped the mail box with the kitty. The trick here is to mask one kitty’s ear with a piece of paper before inking the mail box stamp. The empy space that was achieved this way was filled with the Santa’s hat from Newton’s Holiday Mischief set and the mail box was decorated with holiday leaves and berries.

Special Delivery #handmade envelope by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Happy Mail stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookThat is pretty much all the stuff you can do to create these envelopes. And please don’t be scared by all the masking you need to do! I assure you that it doesn’t take a lot of time at all and go even more fast on mass producing projects! At the end I decided to stamp the “Special Delivery” sign right above the recipient’s address (that I will obviously add later! LOL!!)

Special Delivery #handmade envelope by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Happy Mail stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookI purposely made a complete, but very simple coloring on one envelope, added only a few colored details on gray and red one and left the last one without any coloring at all for those who don’t want to spend much time on decorating envelopes! All the samples look good for me and will make any mail a really HAPPY one!

Hope you like the idea and will give it a try! As always thank so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day!!!

Tatiana

Newton’s Nook Designs September Release and Giveaway – Day 4 – Newton’s Costume Party


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

I swear that all Newton’s fans and crazy cat ladies like me (LOL!!!) were waiting for a new kitty set and this one will not disappoint you for sure!!!

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!

Happy Halloween #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Costume Party stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookNo need to tell you that I’m super excited about this new stamp set since it couldn’t be any cuter and now you can finally dress your sweet pets in fun costumes! At least on your cards! LOL!!! All that crazy cuteness comes with Newton’s Costumes Party stamp set and the coordinating dies which have an additional value in this case! But if you don’t have the die cutting machine, no worries, read this post to find out how you can use this stamp set without the coordinating dies!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving Newton’s Costume Party 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!
 My first card is super simple and cute! I die cut the cutie kitty and the accessorizes and then made stamping with a black waterproof ink aligning the negative part of the die in my stamping positioning tool!

Happy Halloween #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Costume Party stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookOnce finished watercoloring with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, I made a super simple watercolor night sky background with regular watercolors this time and applied some stars with a white embossing paste and Starfield Stencil.

Happy Halloween #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Costume Party stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookAssembling the card, I added a die cut circle colored as the moon and some clouds die cut from Sky Borders die set. Finally I stamped the sentiment with the same black ink I used before and added afew finish touches: a shimmer pen and some sequins!

Happy Halloween #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Costume Party stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookDon’t have a die cutting machine! No worries!!! My second card shows you how to use Newton’s Costumes Party stamp set without the coordinating dies! A simple masking technique will help you to dress up the cute kitties!

Happy Halloween #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Costume Party stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookBasically for masking technique you need to stamp the costume first then stamp it again on a masking paper or post it, cut out a mask and apply it on top of you stamped costume and only then proceed with stamping the kitty. When you lift the mask, you’ll get the dressed kitty.

Happy Halloween #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Costume Party stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookOn my card I decided to reproduce the same scene, making almost one layer card with the same masking technique I talked before! Here are the steps to follow for the complete scene: stamp and mask the costume first, stamp and mask the kitty, die cut from Sky Borders die set and apply the cloud line, finally die cut a circle and place it as the moon. Add color to the sky with ink blending technique and the stars with Starfield Stencil. Lift up only the moon part of the mask and add color to it. Finally lift up all other masks and color the kitty. Honestly it’s not difficult at all as it may seem and doen’t take too much time!!!

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!

No Bones About It #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Spooky Skeletons stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookToday NND is releasing not one, but TWO fantastic stamp sets! The first one is called Spooky Halloween and it’s super cute and super simple to use! Really such a clever design!

Here’s my interpretation of Spooky Halloween stamp set! I die cut a dog and a bat cutouts using the coordinating dies, aligned them in my stamping positioning tool using the negative part of the dies so that I could stamp twice and get a crisp black images.

No Bones About It #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Spooky Skeletons stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Then I prepared an ink blended night scene die cutting a circle with NND Land Borders die set and heat embossing the moon and some stars from the same Spooky Halloween set with a white embossing powder!

No Bones About It #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Spooky Skeletons stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

A few stars were added to a light gray background through Starfield Stencil just for something little extra that would tie all the elements together and finally the sentiment was simply stamped with the same black ink I used for the skeletons.

Forever In Our Hearts #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Beautiful Bones stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookMy second card featuring Beautiful Bones stamp set was inspired my the Mexican Day Of The Dead (Día de Muertos in spanish) and so I went for a super bright rainbow colors on the beautiful skull. I also stamped and colored a few swirly hearts and transformed them in flowers since they are very characteristic for this holiday as well!

Forever In Our Hearts #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Beautiful Bones stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookWorking on the card base, I repeatedly stamped the small heart and then added a vellum panel on top where I heat embossed the sentiment from Furr-ever Friends stamp set. A few black accents added a finish touch to this colorful card.

Forever In Our Hearts #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Beautiful Bones stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookWould you like to win the “Spooky Skeletons” or “Beautiful Bones” Stamp Set?
