Here is what I created:

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

New just released Slothy Coffee stamp set was so perfect to play with. I die cut using the coordinating Slothy Coffee Die Set the cute sloth in the coffee cup from Strathmore Bristol paper, aligned the negative part of the die cut into a stamping positioning tool and stamped the image with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof. The fall twist to the card gave some pumpkins from Harvest Tails and a few falling leaves from Newton’s Cornucopia stamp and die sets. All the stamped elements were colored with Tombow and Zig markers which exact list I’m leaving here:

TOMBOW MARKERS: n.090, n.126, n.885, n.912, n.946, n.990, n.991, n.992.
ZIG CLEAN COLOUR REAL BRUSH MARKERS: n.41 Light Green, n.50 Yellow, n.52 Bright Yellow, n.70 Orange, n.71 Flesh Colour.

The background was made from a watercolor paper trimmed slightly smaller than an A2 size card base. I added some water washes with regular watercolors using the same color range and I used previously on the stamps. Finally the sentiment from the same Slothy Coffee set was simply stamped on the watercolor panel and all the elements were assembled with a bit of dimension.

Newton’s Nook Designs September Release and Giveaway – Day 3 – Harvest Tails


Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the Newton’s Nook Designs September Release!

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!

Autumn Greetings #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Harvest Tails stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

You know that I’m fond of cute kitties, kitty stamps and dies, but the adorable critters from new Harvest Tails stamp set have completely stolen my heart! This set definitely became one of my favorites! Besides the cute critters, it filled with super clever small stamps so useful for adding autumn feeling to the projects or building the cutest fall scenes. In case you’re interested, Harvest Tails stamp set comes with the coordinating dies.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Harvest Tails 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!

Here’s what I came up with working with Harvest Tails stamp set and Harvest Tails Die Set.

Autumn Greetings #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Harvest Tails stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

To start, I prepared three crates with a climbing raccoon and some autumn pumpkins and apples. This is where the coordinating dies come super handy and save lots of time. First I made a super quick die cutting using Harvest Tails Die Set and Neenah Solar White paper, then aligned the negative part of the die cut elements into a stamping positioning tool and quickly stamped the coordinating images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Next I spent some time coloring everything with copic markers.

These are all the colors used on the card: YR00-YR02-YR04-YR07-YR09; R22-R24-R29; Y11-Y15-Y17; YG01-YG05; E30-E33-E35-E37; raccoon C0-C1-C3-C7 plus R000-R30.

Working on the background, I masked the card base edges and blended from the bottom right corner a super light blue ink. Finally I popped all the elements on a foam tape along with a heat embossed sentiment from the same Harvest Tails set and finished with a coat of Wink of Stella Clear Glitter pen.

fall release

**Please note that links to our store for these new products will not go LIVE until 6PM EST on August 24th.**

Today I’m so happy to introduce you two new and absolutely adorable Bewitched and Darling Dragons stamp sets filled with lots of incredibly cute images. Both sets come with the coordinating Bewitched and Darling Dragons SugarCuts. Plus there’s an extra amazing new die set called Hocus Pocus.


My first card features Darling Dragons stamp set and Darling Dragons SugarCut.

Hocus Pocus #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Darling Dragons stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

I started with Strathmore Bristol paper, VersaFine Onyx black ink and Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers. Once die cut and stamped some images from Darling Dragons sets, I made a super simple watercoloring.

In case you’re interested, here’s the complete list of all Zig markers I used on this card: n.36 Light Blue – n.41 Light Green – n.51 Lemon Yellow – n.52 Bright Yellow – n.83 Lilac – n.61 Light Brown.

Next I took a piece of the watercolor cardstock from Tim Holtz, masked a triangle shape with a sticky tape and added Squeezed Lemonade Distress ink plus a few blue shades: Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon. I framed the inked piece using a scalloped die from Card Front Element Builder and popped it on an A2 size white card base. Finally I heat embossed the sentiment from the same Darling Dragons stamp set, arranged all the stamps and adhered them with a bit of dimension.

You're A Wicked Good Friend #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Bewitched stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Next comes super adorable Bewitched stamp set and the coordinating Bewitched SugarCuts. Working on this project I switched to Neenah Solar White paper and Memento Tuxedo Black ink since my intention was to color the images with copic markers.

Here’re all the colors used here: skin E50-E51-E53-E55-R20; hair Y32-YR21-YR24-YR27; RV21-RV23-RV25-RV29; B21-B24-B26; YG93-YG95-YG97; BG11-BG23; YR12-YR16; C00-C1-C3; E30-E33; R00-R24-R29.

You're A Wicked Good Friend #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Bewitched stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

For the card front I used the same scalloped frame from Card Front Element Builder and Distress cardstock from Tim Holtz along with a light yellow and blue inks and an ink blending tool. Before stamping the sentiment from Bewitched stamp set, I flicked a few water droplets on the background and finally assemble everything with a bit of dimension and shimmer.

My first card features two super fun and cute new products: To The Moon & Back stamp set and SugarCut Star Dust.

You are the Center of My Universe #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - To The Moon & Back stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

To start, I stamped with VersaFine Onyx black ink since it’s waterproof the big image from To The Moon & Back stamp set using a watercolor paper. Then I made a simple watercoloring with regular watercolors and stamped aside the matching sentiment. Next came a watercolor galaxy background that was cut to a 3½” by 4½” rectangle and ran back and force in the die cutting machine with new SugarCut Star Dust. The die cut starts immediately transformed the watercolor background into a beautiful starry night sky. Assembling all the elements I popped some of them on foam tape for a bit of dimension.

Next comes so adorable To Infinity & Beyond stamp sets filled with incredibly cute stamps and fantastic sentiments.

Have A Blast #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - To Infinity & Beyond stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

As always I started with the coordinating SugarCut To Infinity & Beyond and Strathmore Bristol paper die cutting an astronaut dog and a few planets. Next I aligned the negative part of the cuts into a stamping positioning tool and stamped the images from To Infinity & Beyond set with VersaFine Onyx Black ink. Finally all the elements were colored with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers.

Here’s the complete list of all Zig markers I used here: n.36 Light Blue – n.45 Pale Green – n.47 May Green – n.51 Lemon Yellow – n.83 Lilac – n.61 Light Brown – n.62 Dark Brown – n.64 Oatmeal.

Have A Blast #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - To Infinity & Beyond stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Creating the background for the first card, I ended up with an extra piece of a galaxy background and decided to play around the same layout. I heat embossed the sentiment using the same To Infinity & Beyond stamp sets and finally adhered everything to the card base with a bit of dimension.
