NND comes with the most adorable designs every time and it’s soooooo hard to pick favorites, but this fabulous trio of kitties from Caroling Newton stamp set has immediately stolen my heart!!! And so I decided to color them as my sweet girl Lilly (on the left), the cutest red Newton – the inspiration for the NND name and logo (in the center) and my eldest boy Tommy (on the right). I can’t stop laughing every time I look at this card!!!

Creating this card, I really invested my time on coloring the cats from Caroling Newton that were die cut from Neenah Solar White paper with the coordinating die and stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink.

This is the complete list of all copic markers I used here: cat on the left W00-W1-W2-W3; cat in the center Y32-YR21-YR24-YR27; cat on the right E40-E41-E42-E43-E44; YG03-YG25-YG67; B91-B93-B97-B99; R35-RV29-R39; R11-R12; T0-T1-T3; BG10-BG13.

The scalloped frame on the background were die cut with Frames & Flags Die set, slightly inked with Tumbled Glass Distress ink and an ink blending tool. Next new amazing Music stencil was placed on top and inked with Mermaid Lagoon Distress ink. I lifted up and cleaned the stencil and then applied it once more on the background slightly shifted right up. Finally the music pattern was reapplied once again with a white embossing paste. Assembling the card, I simply stamped the matching sentiment from Caroling Newton stamp set and finally popped the background and kitties on a foam tape.

The Music background was chosen again for my second card and paired with the super cute mice from The Nutcracker Squeak. I started this project with a watercolor cardstock from Tim Holtz, inked the whole panel with Shaded Lilac Distress ink and applied the music pattern using Wilted Violet Distress ink. Next I added some water droplet and color splashes across for more fun and playful look.

The cute ballerinas were die cut with the coordinating dies, stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black ink on Strathmore Bristol paper and colored with water markers. I used the matching sentiment from The Nutcracker Squeak stamp set and simply stamped it on the music panel before popping the critters on a foam tape.

Here’s the complete list of all the colors used here: TOMBOW n.N15, n.673, n.723, n.725; ZIG Clean Colour Real Brush n. 95 Mid Gray.

Believe In The Magic Of The Season #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winter Memories stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Working on this project, I prepared a long card base, hand cut a curvy line from a masking paper emulating snow banks and placed it on the bottom part of the card base. Next I inked Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers and Black Soot Distress inks stating from the top part of the card and fading the colors towards the bottom. I lifted up the masking paper and let the inked background dry before stamping the scene with Winter Memories set and VersaFine black ink. Finally I added a few snowflakes with a white pigment ink for a soft and dreamy look.

You are not a stamper?! In this case, hope my second card will inspire you!!! LOL!!!

Happy Holidays #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Holiday Greetings die set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

This card was made with no stamps at all! I mixed and matched a few new goodies and added a bit of sparkle on top! To start, I prepared a watercolored background using blue tones. Next I set towards the bottom left part of my panel new Evergreens stencil and inked Moved Lawn plus a bit of Faded Jeans Distress inks on top. I lifted up the stencil and let everything dry well before adding fun Petite Snow through the second new stencil with a plain white embossing paste. To add more shine I dropped a crystal sparkle embossing powder while the white embossing paste was still wet and let everything air dry once again.

Meanwhile I die cut several times and stacked a few layers of wonderful die cut sentiment from new Holiday Greetings Die Set finishing on top with a silver glitter paper. I’m always so excited about the new word dies as they give that extra special finishing touch to every project!!! Finally I shook off and heat set the sparkling embossing paste on the background, added the shiny sentiment and popped my background on a regular A2 size card base.

This is gonna be a long post so I’ll try to be synthetic! Please, if you have any questions, leave them in the comment area below and I’ll be happy to answer you!

My first card features a new Thankful Thoughts stamp set filled with lots of different style and shape sentiments! And you know that sentiment sets are absolutely must have in any crafter’s stash.

Thanks #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Thankful Thoughts stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

On my project I decided to build a stamped background using one of the sentiments from Thankful Thoughts set. To start, I masked a rectangle directly on the card front and repeatedly stamped the sentiment using different shades of orange inks for an ombré effect. Next I die cut and stamped a cute squirrel and a few small elements using new just released Harvest TailsNewton’s Thanksgiving stamp and die sets and finally colored all the elements with copic markers and assembled everything with a bit of dimension.

As always, I’m leaving you the complete list of all the copic markers used here: E30-E31-E35; squirrel Y21-YR23-YR27-E99; YG01-YG95; YR00-YR04; Y13-Y15-Y17.

Next comes super fun Slothy Coffee stamp set. This cutie will bring a smile onto your faces for sure!

Feeling Slothy Need Coffee #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Slothy Coffee stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Once die cut the sloth with the coordinating Slothy Coffee Die Set from Strathmore Bristol paper and stamped the coordinating image from Slothy Coffee stamp set with a VersaFine Onyx Black ink, I colored it with a water based markers. At this point I also added a few cups to my design using Cuppa Cactus stamp set and Cuppa Cactus Die sets. Next I die cut a stitched frame using Frames & Flags die set and blended some yellowy-orange tones of Distress inks through Sunscape stencil. Finally, before assembling everything together, I simply stamped the sentiment from the same Slothy Coffee  stamp set.

Finally it’s turn of Tea-Rex stamp and die sets with a super cute dino.

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

Thinking about the design of this project, I thought it would be fun to recreate a tea bag. I stated with a new Tree Rings stencil and once the embossing paste was dry, I die cut a tag from Tag Times 2 Die Set in the center of the card front. I also use a small top element for my tag from Fancy Edges Tag Die Set and finally gathered the tag and the label with a heat embossed sentiment using a baker twine. Next I die cut using the coordinating dies, stamped and colored a Tea-Rex from Tea-Rex stamp set along with a few small cups from Newton Loves Coffee and Coffee & Wine stamp sets. Please note that these sets don’t have the coordinating dies, but the stamps can be easily fussy cut with a sharp pair of scissors. Assembling this projects I played with different layers and gave some dimension using double or three layers of a foam tape.

Newton’s Nook Designs September Release and Giveaway – Day 2 – Newton’s Pumpkin Patch


Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the Newton’s Nook Designs September Release!
I’m so happy you’ve joined me today because the new stamp set I’m showcasing today is simply fabulous with a real autumn feel! Psss… by the way, fall is my favorite season!!! LOL!!!

All the new September products will be available for purchase on Friday, September 14th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Sending You Piles of Pumpkin & Smiles #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton’s Pumpkin Patch stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

New Newton’s Pumpkin Patch stamp set is another gorgeous addition to the collection of NND “big” stamps. Love the amazing design filled with tons of pumpkins and a few kitties peeking from behind. Such a unique design! This set don’t have the coordinating dies, but it goes perfectly with  Frames & Flags and Framework Die Sets.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Newton’s Pumpkin Patch stamp sets away to a lucky winner so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

Working on this project, I decided not to alterate the wonderful pile of pumpkins and invent a fancy design, but simply invest my time on coloring.

Sending You Piles of Pumpkin & Smiles #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton’s Pumpkin Patch stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I used good quality watercolor paper and stamped the image with a black waterproof ink (VersaFine Onyx Black). Next I tapped the paper to a hardboard to prevent it from wapping and spent quite some time coloring the stamp with regular watercolors. I have a customized watercolor palette made from Winsor & Newton, Schmincke and Daniel Smith watercolors. Once dried, the watercolor piece was framed with Frames & Flags die set and popped on a kraft card base. Finally the matching sentiment from the same Newton’s Pumpkin Patch stamp set was simply heat embossed on a piece of a black cardstock and finished this project.
