Today I have another fun, cute and bright project featuring new Toucan Party stamp set and the coordinating Toucan Party Dies. I just LOVE those adorable feather friends with a tropical feeling!!! They are super easy to color and so fun to use on summer cards!  And since we are talking about summer and tropical feeling, new Tropical Leaves Stencil couldn’t be any perfect to pair with these toucans!
 
I started working on a watercolor cardstock and blended two shades of green Distress inks through Tropical Leaves Stencil, then I spritzed on top a few big water droplets and let them sit for a while on the paper since I wanted to achieve a splotchy faux watercolor look. While the background was drying, I stamped on a Bristol paper with a waterproof ink two toucans and colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers since I like their vibrant colors. I also heat embossed with a white embossing powder the sentiment from the same Toucan Party stamp set and finally assembled all the element with a bit of dimension using a foam tape.

Reach For The Stars #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cosmic Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today I’m SUPER EXCITED about new Newton stamps that come with cute Cosmic Newton set!!! After his western adventures, the adorable kitty decided to visit other planets and galaxies!!! Isn’t he super cute in his space coveralls?! And, of course, you can get the coordinating dies with Cosmic Newton Die set.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving a $20 store credit to Newton’s Nook Designs to one lucky winner so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

This stamp set just screams for me to be used with some interactive elements! You can make the cute mischief slide and spin on your fun projects! And the galaxy background is, of course, another must for me on the space theme cards! And no need to tell you how well it coordinates with new Starfield Stencil!!!

Reach For The Stars #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cosmic Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I stretched my watercolors this time and worked on a watercolor paper! I stamped the kitty with a waterproof ink, die-cut with the coordinating Cosmic Newton Die and made a little bit splotchy non perfect watercoloring! Then I proceeded with the galaxy background: first I made a colorful undertone painting on some areas with bright yellow, orange, red and pink colors; I heat set this first layer and brought on top more dark blue, violet and black colors and finally flicked some white gouache on top creating tiny stars! Once the background was dry, I created an interactive element using a specific die, but you can easily make the similar effect with two circle nesting dies! Before assembling the card, I applied throung Starfield Stencil a white embossing paste to bring more stars to my backgroung and heat embossed the sentiment from the same Cosmic Newton stamp set!

The spinner mechanism is very easy to assemble too: punch or die-cut two circles slightly larger than the spinner channel. Put one circle directly on the card base and adhere another on top with a foam tape, but above the background panel this time. Then use the top circle as a base for you interactive element! Just be sure to use a glue that dries non sticky for easy spinning!

Toucan Be Happy Together #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Toucan Party stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today all the Design Team is showcasing SUPER ADORABLE Toucan Party stamp set and the coordinating Toucan Party Dies. How cute these birdies are for summer theme projects: cards, scrapbook layouts, tags, planner spreads or customize treat bags!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving a $20 store credit to Newton’s Nook Designs to one lucky winner so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!


I mixed and matched the adorable new toucan stamps and dies with a few “old” products from Newton’s Nook Designs previous releases and created this clean and simple card! Hope you like it!

Toucan Be Happy Together #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Toucan Party stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I started die-cutting a heart shape from NND Darling Hearts set twice: on the edge of a white panel and from a masking paper. Then I aligned the positive part of the die-cut mask with my card front panel and used it as a guide to place the negative part of the mask around. I made my own stencil using NND Sky Borders Die and created a sky background with a super quick and easy ink blending right on top of the card base. Once removed the mask, I popped the additional panel with the die-cut heart on a foam tape just to bring some dimension and interest. The adorable toucan couple was stamped with a waterproof ink on a Bristol Paper and die-cut with the coordinating Toucan Party Die. Zig markers were my choice as a coloring media since they are super blight and juicy. As always I’m leaving all the exact colors I used at the bottom of the post!

Cheers! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cocktail Mixer stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Bon Voyage #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Stowaway Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today all the Design Team is showcasing two SUPER ADORABLE stamp sets: Cocktail Mixer and Stowaway Newton and I even more excited about these new products because both coordinating dies have additional WORD DIES that give more value and tons of fun options, of corse! How clever is that!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving a $20 store credit to Newton’s Nook Designs to one lucky winner so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

So let’s tale a look at my first cheerful sunny with a pop of sparkle card! I just love the refreshing summer drinks from Cocktail Mixer stamp set! I decided to pair them with new Waves Stencil.

Cheers! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cocktail Mixer stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I started with masking the borders of my card base before applying the ink through Waves Stencil and once lifted it up, it flicked some drops of a pearlized solution on top! While the card base was drying, I stamped, colored with Zig markers and die-cut the cocktails and the “cheers!” sentiment that come with Cocktail Mixer Die set. I stacked a few layers of the sentiment die creating a sort of a chipboard and colored it with Zig markers since I wanted to bright more color to my card. Finally I added tons of shimmer using Star Dust Stickles Glitter Glue!

Cheers! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cocktail Mixer stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

My second card features a SUPER ADORABLE cutie Newton from Stowaway Newton stamp set! In this funny  set kitty packed this luggage and is ready to leave for his summer vacations? Where does Newton go? LOL!!!

Bon Voyage #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Stowaway Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

This time I decided to make something different and worked on a colorful card base. I applied a coat of a white embossing paste throung Pawprints Stencil creating a cute non distractive pattern. Then I stamped, colored with copic markers this time the kitty image and die-cut with Stowaway Newton Die set both the stamp and the word sentiment! I glued a few layers of the sentiment die again and brought a matching color with the same copic markers I used on the main stamp! Assembling the card, I popped the die-cut element on a foam tape adding some dimension and interest.

Advice From The Lake #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Lake Advice stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I'd Rather Be Lost At The Lake #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winston's Lake House stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today all the Design Team is showcasing a lot of amazing products: Winston’s Lake House (plus the coordinating dies) and Lake Advice stamp sets; Sea Borders Die and 4 fantastic stencils which are the new product cared by Newton’s Nook Designs and no need to tell how I’m excited to get my paws on them!!! LOL!!!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving a $20 store credit to Newton’s Nook Designs 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 what I came up with. My first card features Lake Advice stamp set and Waves Stencil.

Advice From The Lake #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Lake Advice stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookI started working with Waves Stencil and used it in two ways achieving a totally different look. On the front panel I blended a few blue-green shades of Distress inks for a colorful gradient pattern, while on the card base I applied a translucent embossing paste for a soft non distractive look. Completing the card, I stamped the sentiment on top with a black crisp ink and added a boat stamp towards the bottom along with a few clear seguins.

Advice From The Lake #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Lake Advice stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

My second card features a SUPER ADORABLE cutie Winston from new Winston’s Lake House stamp set and the coordinating dies. I just love the idea to spend a few summer days relaxing at the lake and so I couldn’t help myself to build a little scene using new Sea Borders Die for the waves along with Land Borders die and Sky Borders Die as a stencil to complete the card.

I'd Rather Be Lost At The Lake #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winston's Lake House stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I stamped a bunch of cute characters from Winston’s Lake House stamp set on a Bristol paper, colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and then die-cut using the the coordinating dies. I also die-cut the scene elements and ink blended some Distress inks on top. Assembling the card, I played with layers and added a lot of dimension with a foam tape and, of course, couldn’t skip some shimmer in the end!!!
