Relax #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Summer Vacation stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The summer theme made me immediately think about the adorable and super fun Newton’s Summer Vacation stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs. And so after a tough year full of naps the cute mischief made his plans for relaxing summer vacation! LOL!!!

I stated this card by preparing a light gray card base and made my own pattern paper to go on top, repeatedly stamping the word “summer” from Simply Seasonal set with the matching gray ink. A lovely schedule board useful to sign up all the intense vacation plans was die-cut from Studio Katia Stitched Notebook die set. At this point I also stamped with a waterproof ink a few adorable images from Newton’s Summer Vacation stamp set, colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut right against the stamp edge, hiding any imperfection from trimming with a black marker.

The color combo on this card was totally inspired by the cheerful and bright Summer Fusion sequins mix from Studio Katia that made a purr-fect finish touch along with a little bit of shimmer and glossy accents.

We are giving away TWO prizes – one prize pack from Studio Katia and one $25 store credit from Newton’s Nook Designs!
