Let’s spread no more words since this post is long and start with the first card featuring so adorable Halloween Trio stamp set.

Trick Or Treat #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Halloween Trio stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I stated with the coordinating Halloween trio dies and die cut the cute critters along with the word sentiment and a few bats from Neenah Solar white paper. I aligned the negative part of the cuts in the stamping positioning tool and stamped the Halloween Trio with Memento black ink. Next I spent some time coloring the critters and the bats with copic markers.

In case you’re curious, here’s the complete list of all the copic markers I used here: YR02-YR04-YR07-YR07-YR18-E08; Y32-YR21-YR24-YR27; YR30-YR31; E30-E31-E33-E35; E41-E42-E43; C00-C1-C3; YG21-YG95; BG70; W00-W1;T1-T7; R30; 100

Assembling all the elements, I created a night scene using Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire Distress inks and Sunscape stencil for the rays of light, popped the cute critters on a foam tape and finished with a few matching sequins.

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

Next comes Candy Corn stamp set and a night watercolor scene. To start, I die cut a bunch of candy corns using the coordinating Candy Corn die set (so handful for multiple die cutting), stamped all the images with VersaFine Onyx Black ink on a Bristol paper from Strathmore and colored all the elements with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers.

Here’s the complete list of all the colors I used here: n.51 Lemon Yellow – n.50 Yellow – n.52 Bright Yellow – n.70 Orange – n.71 Flesh Colour – n.67 Mustard – n.91 Light Gray

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

For the background I used Framework die, a watercolor paper and regular watercolors. Once dried, I embossed some stars throughout Starfield stencil with a plain white embossing paste and heat embossed the sentiment from the same Candy Corn set with a white embossing powder. Once all the elements were arranged on the card base, I decided to add a cute owl from Boo Hoo set on top of the candy corns stack.

Last, but not least we have Boo Hoo stamp set with a super fun and cute ghosts. Using the coordinating Boo Hoo Die Set and Neenah Solar White paper, I die cut a few ghost shapes and speech bubbles.

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

Then I stamped the matching stamps with Memento black ink and colored the images with copic markers.

These are the exact copic markers I used here: T1; Y0000-Y00; RV0000-RV00; 0 (colorless blender).

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

For the background I prepared a scalloped frame using NND Frames & Flags Die Set with a circle window in the center where I added a sort of yellow Moon inking the paper with Fossilized Umber Distress Oxide ink and added on top some bats through just released yesterday Flying Bats stencil.

Inspired by the cutest bunny searching for some candies in the pumpkin, I decided to create a circle shaker card filled with sweet treats. To start, I die cut the bunny shape along with a whole bunch of sweets using  the coordinating Hoppy Halloween dies from Strathmore Bristol paper and then stamped the images from Hoppy Halloween stamp set with a waterproof black ink using a stamping positioning tool and the negative part of the die cuts. Next I took a water brush and colored all the images with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers.

As always I’m leaving you the complete list of all the colors I used here: n.51 Lemon Yellow – n.52 Bright Yellow – n.70 Orange – n.26 Light Pink – n.25 Pink – n. 41 Light Green – n.80 Violet – n.81 Purple – n.71 Flesh Colour – n.61 Light Brown – n.67 Mustard

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

For the card base, I die cut twice a scalloped circle from a white cardstock and glued together the top part. Next I die cut another circle of the same dimension from a bright purple cardstock with a window inside and used it to create a shaker part that was filled with the small colored stamps from Hoppy Halloween stamp set, a few clear sequins and some matching beads. The sentiment was simply heat embossed with a white embossing powder on a piece of a black cardstock and popped on top of the card base with a foam tape along with the cute bunny.

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.
