Fussy cutting the stamped images I used Cuttie Bee scissors from EK Success brand. I really love them since these scissors are very sharp and small. Be sure to paint the cut edges with a black marker to hide any imperfection before adhering the stamps to the card base.

On my spot for this hop, I prepared two watercolor cards! The first one is made with Tombow markers. As always I started with the coordinating Garden Mice dies, Strathmore Bristol paper and VersaFine Onyx Black ink. I stamped the cute mouse from Garden Mice along with a few flowers from just release Floral Fringe stamp sets.

Once finished with coloring, I heat embossed the sentiment from the same Garden Mice set on a piece of a green cardstock and die cut a scalloped rectangle using Frames & Flags Die Set for the layout.

Working on my second card, I switched to Arches Hot Pressed Watercolor paper and regular watercolors. To start, I arranged some stamps from Garden MiceApril Showers and Newton Scoots By stamp sets and stamped them using VersaFine Onyx black ink since it’s waterproof.

For the background, I decided to try the dry embossing with stencils and so I chose Floral Lace pattern and ran it through my die cutting machine including a squishy embossing pad in the “sandwich”. I used the same sentiment as on my previous card and heat embossed it again on a piece of a black cardstock.

Time To Paw-ty! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Block Party stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today NND is revealing a super cute and absolutely adorable Newton’s Block Party stamp set full of fun birthday kitties! No need to tell you that a crazy cat lady like me totally felt in love with it!!! Plus this stamp set coordinates well with just released yesterday Frames Squared Die.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new stamp Newton’s Block Party stamp set away to 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 what I came up with for you using Newton’s Block Party set. To start, I stamped the kitties on a piece of Strathmore Bristol paper with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof.

Time To Paw-ty! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Block Party stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Before coloring the stamp, I framed it with Frames Squared Die set and fussy cut a window inside using a pair of small sharp scissors. Next I colored everything with Tombow markers and started working on the card base. I used once again Frames Squared Die set and die cut a window directly on the card front. I adhered the kitty stamp and embellished inside with a tone on tope balloons inking new Balloons stencil with a light pink ink and then simply stamped the sentiment.

Newton’s Nook Designs March Release and Giveaway – Day 2 – Floral Fringe

Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the Newton’s Nook Designs March release!

All the new March products will be available for purchase on Friday, March 15th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Thanks A Bunch #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Floral Fringe stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Day 2 has reserved us a wonderful cluster of spring flowers that come as a one big Floral Fringe stamp set. This stamp set also have some amazing sentiments inside, but doesn’t have the coordinating dies since it was meant to use with new Frames Squared Die. A universal die is much better than the coordinating set and can be used on any project! That’s why I love the NND clever design!

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


For my stop one this hop I’m sharing two ways of use of this new beautiful Floral Fringe stamp set. The first project was colored with color pencils.

Thanks A Bunch #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Floral Fringe stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

To start, I used Strathmore Toned Gray Paper and VersaMark ink that is perfect not only for embossing, but for no-line coloring too. I let the ink air dry before making my coloring and spent quite some time with playing with Polychromos and Prismacolor pencils.

Thanks A Bunch #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Floral Fringe stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Before attaching the colored piece to a bright pink square card base, I framed the flowers with a scalloped die from Frames Squared Die set and finally embellished the card with White Nuvo Drops and a few clear sequins.

So Happy You're My Friend #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Floral Fringe stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The second card features a fun and easy way to make watercoloring. I heat embossed the flower cluster from Floral Fringe stamp set with Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder from Ranger. The heat embossed edges are deep and contains the color areas separated from each other. So you can drop a bit of bright color towards the center of the flowers and let it spread with clear water creating a little bit splotchy watercolor look.

Here’s the list of all TOMBOW markers I used on this project: n.126, n.133, n.452, n.606, n.620, n.703, n.725.

So Happy You're My Friend #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Floral Fringe stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Once again I framed the colored piece and the heat embossed sentiment with Frames Squared Die  set and popped all the elements on a foam tape along with a few matching sequins.
