Life Is Better In Flip Flops #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Pina Koala stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

If you’re still in doubt, I have another inspiration project for you featuring new small, but not less adorable Flip-Flop Life stamp set. Working on this card, I started with stamping a pattern on a piece of Neenah Solar White paper with Memento black ink since it’s copic friendly. Next I proceed with a simple coloring and added non directional shade around every flip-flop with a light gray color.
Here’s the complete list of all the colors I used here: BG10; Y00-Y11; YG00-YG01-YG05; RV10-RV02-RV04; T1.

Once adhered my colored pattern to the light blue card base, I die cut using the coordinating Flip-Flop Die Set another pair of cute flip-flops that were stamped and colored with a bit brighter shades along with a stamp edge frame from Framework Die used for the sentiment that comes from the same Flip-Flop Life stamp set. A coat of clear glitter pen and Glossy Accents added a finish touch to this card.

Pina Koala #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Pina Koala stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today NND has reserved you a big surprise as they are coming with a new super cute and so adorable small format for their stamps. Really so much fun and a great price point!!! The new Pina Koala, Cat Treats, Flip-Flop Life and Floaty Goat stamp sets come with the coordinating dies plus we have a fantastic summery sentiment from new Vitamin Sea 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!


Pina Koala, stamp set was my first choice. I loooove this cutie and immediately thought that it would be fun to pair with Cocktail Mixer stamp set.

Pina Koala #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Pina Koala stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Using the coordinating dies, I die cut and then stamped with a copic friendly black ink the koala from Pina Koala set and a couple of cocktails from Cocktail Mixer sets both on Neenah Solar White paper. Next I made simple copic coloring giving a bit of texture to the critter with a dot technique.

I’m leaving you all the exact colors used here: C00-C1-C2-C3-C4-C7; Y0000-Y11-Y13-Y15-Y18;YG00-YG01-YG13; R0000-R01-R11; BG0000-BG10; RV25; E33.

Pina Koala #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Pina Koala stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I kept the rest of the card clean and simple and only inked a soft blue background and heat embossed the sentient from the same Pina Koala on a piece of a black cardstock. Finishing this project I couldn’t not to add a few extra touched with a clear shimmer pen, Glossy Accents and a small flower from just released Cozy Campers stamp set.

Next we have a super adorable Cat Treats stamp set that was transformed into a lovely watercolor background on my second card.

You Make Life Sweet #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Pina Koala stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I went for a more soft look by repeatedly stamping the images on a piece of watercolor paper from Cat Treats stamp set with a waterproof brown ink instead of a usual black one. Next I added some happy and bright shades with regular watercolors and heat embossed the sentiment on a bright pink cardstock. Arranging all the elements, I reached for Frames & Flags Die Set both for the scalloped frame and the fish-tail banner.

Newton’s Nook Designs’ 5 Year Celebration and Giveaway – Day 3

and

Hello and welcome!

It’s Day 3 of the Newton’s Nook Designs 5 Year Celebration Week and today I’m sooooo thrilled to showcase you two new super cute and absolutely aaaaa-dorable stamp sets!!! Ready?!

All the new July products will be available for purchase on Friday, July 20th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Stand Tall And Be Fabulous #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Flamingo Flock stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I know that many stampers like BIG stamps that can cover entire card front and make the coloring super easy as you don’t need to make any masking or arranging. So if you are the one, I bet I can heat you screaming today because NND is reveling a fabulous addition to their collection with Shark Frenzy and Flamingo Flock stamp sets. These sets don’t have the coordinating dies, but match perfectly already released Frames & Flags and Framework Die Sets.

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!

On my first card I applied probably my even favorite technique to use with watercoloring. As you can guess it’s the emboss resist.

Stand Tall And Be Fabulous #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Flamingo Flock stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

First of all I heat embossed Flamingo Flock stamp on a watercolor paper with a detailed white embossing powder and proceeded with coloring using my regular watercolors.

Stand Tall And Be Fabulous #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Flamingo Flock stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Once the watercolor piece was dried, I framed it with Frames & Flags Die Set and heat embossed the sentiment from the same Flamingo Flock set.

You're Looking Shark Today #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Shark Frenzy stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Working with Shark Frenzy stamp set, I decided to use the emboss resist technique differently. I obviously started by stamping with VersaFine Onyx Black ink this time on a piece on a watercolor cardstock. Since this ink is a pigment one, I was able to heat emboss on top of stamping using a clear embossing powder. Next I took Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress inks and applied the color with and ink blending tool. Super quick and easy!!! I think it’s a great way to use those big stamps without spending much time on coloring.

You're Looking Shark Today #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Shark Frenzy stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Finishing the card, I fussy cut Shark Frenzy stamp following the outside lines, and added a few elements die cut with Frames & Flags and Sea Borders Die Sets.

Newton’s Nook Designs’ 5 Year Celebration and Giveaway – Day 2

and

Hello and welcome!

It’s Day 2 of the Newton’s Nook Designs 5 Year Celebration Week and today I’m sooooo thrilled to showcase you two new super cute and absolutely aaaaa-dorable stamp sets!!! Ready?!

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

Today NND is revealing two new sets that will immediately bring you into a summer mood. First we have the cutest mischievous kitty Newton back with sweet and so delicious Newton’s Summer Treats stamp set and then we will transfer you into a summer trip with Cozy Campers stamp set. Both sets come with the coordinating dies.

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 started working on my first card die cutting with the coordinating dies the cute kitty from Newton’s Summer Treats set.

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

I chose Strathmore Bristol paper since it’s my favorite to use with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers and VersaFine Onyx Black ink for stamping since it’s waterproof.

Here’s the complete list of the colors used on these card: n.51 Lemon Yellow – n.26 Light Pink – n.25 Pink – n.22 Light Carmine – n.23 Scarlet Red – n.41 Light Green – n.61 Light Brown – n.64 Oatmeal – n.67 Mustard – n.62 Dark Brown – n.91 Light Gray.

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

Inspired by the stripes from the kitty’s ice cream, I decided to make a matching striped background. Frames & Flags Die Set came super handy for a stitched rectangle that was divided later into more stitched stripes. I used the same Bristol paper and added colors with the same Zig markers I used before. Assembling all the elements I added an extra summer feel to the card base with Tropical Leaves stencil and heat embossed the sentiment from the same Newton’s Summer Treats set on a piece of a black cardstock.

Home Is... #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cozy Campers stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Next we have a super adorable Cozy Campers stamp set. I’m totally felt in looove with the adorable images and so I die cut and stamped a whole bunch of them and colored with copic markers.

I’m leaving you all the exact colors used here: RV00-RV21-RV23; YG00-YG01-YG03; BG000-BG10-BG11; Y00-Y11-Y13-Y15; T1-T7; R00-R12.

Home Is... #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cozy Campers stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

For the background I used the same Frames & Flags Die Set and after applying a soft grass and sky portions with Distress inks and an ink blending tool, I tapped the stitched panel on the kraft card base and added a cloud pattern through Cloudy Sky stencil across both elements. Then I took apart the inside stitched rectangle and once dried popped it in place on a foam tape for a bit of dimension along with the colored images.

Be A Mermaid #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Narly Mermaids stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I’m starting with fabulous Narly Mermaids stamp set. I used the coordinating dies and die cut a bunch of cute characters from Neenah Solar White paper and colored everything with copic markers.
Here’s the complete list of the colors I used here: Y11-Y13-Y15; YR000-YR00-YR02-YR04-YR07; R30-R32-R05-R08; BG000-BG10-BG11-BG13-BG15; V01-V04; E50-E51-E53-E55-R20.

Be A Mermaid #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Narly Mermaids stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The fish background was added with a white embossing paste through new Seashells stencil and once dried slightly shaded with Antique Linen Distress ink to make show better the pattern. The stitched rectangle from Frames & Flags Die Set was “colored” with Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide inks and an ink blending tool and then divided with Land Border Die set.

Let's Be Mermaids #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Purr-maid Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Next we have a super adorable Purr-maid Newton stamp set. Once again I die cut the cute characters with the coordinating dies on Strathmore Bristol paper since my intention was to switch to Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers.
I’m leaving you all the exact colors used here: n.51 Lemon Yellow – n.50 Yellow – n.28 Pale Pink – n.26 Light Pink – n.25 Pink – n.83 Lilac -n.41 Light Green – n.61 Light Brown – n.64 Oatmeal – n.67 Mustard – n.62 Dark Brown – n.91 Light Gray – n.94 Gray Brown.

Let's Be Mermaids #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Purr-maid Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I prepared another white on white embossed background using Tropical Fish stencil and a white embossing paste that was spitted into two parts with a wavy line from Sea Borders Die Set.

Let's Be Mermaids #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Purr-maid Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Between the top and the bottom parts I inserted a water portion made with Salty Ocean and Mermaid Lagoon Distress inks and an ink blending tool where I heat embossed a few water bubbles and the sentiment from the same Purr-maid Newton stamp set.

You're Manatee-rific #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Manatee-rific stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Last but not least comes the wonderful Mantatee-rific stamp set.

You're Manatee-rific #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Manatee-rific stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I die cut two cuties using the the coordinating dies on the same Neehah Solar White paper I used on my first card and played with copic markets trying to give a bit of texture to the critters with a dot technique. I mixed and matched a few shades using W00-W1-W2-W3; Y00-Y21-YR21-YR65; B93; BV13; V15 markers. Then I went for a more artsy background using Tropical Fish stencil  and Distress Oxide ink in blue shades.
