Take Delight In SMALL Things #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Humming Bird stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today I’m so happy to share with you new beautiful Hummingbird stamp set. In case you’re interested, this set has the coordinating Hummingbird Die Set.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away Hummingbird stamp sets 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 card, I decided to focus on a limited color combo choosing the complementary mint green and cold pink as main colors. To start, I stamped on Neenah Solar White paper, die cut and colored with copic markers the hummingbird and the flower using Hummingbird stamp and die sets.

As always, I’m leaving you all the exact colors used on this project: RV0000-RV00-RV10-RV02; G40-YG11-YG41-G09; BG70-BG72-BG75; Y0000-Y00.

Next I proceeded working on the background creating the layout with a white tag die cut from Fancy Edges Tag Die Set, a strip of grass die cut from Land Borders Die Set and colored with a copic marker, a small white rectangle with the matching sentiment stamped from Hummingbird set and a light pink A2 size card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) embellished with a dry embossing made through Floral Lace stencil. I arranged all the elements on that card base with a bit of dimension and finished the card with a few sequins.

Newton’s Nook Designs’ May Release and Giveaway – Day 2 – Monarchs Stamp and Butterflies Stencil Sets



Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the Newton’s Nook May release! I’m so excited you’ve joined me today and can’t wait to share my cards with you!

All the new May products will be available for purchase on Friday, May 22th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Fluttering By... #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Monarchs stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The second day of the release has reserved us small, but not less amazing Monarchs stamp set that comes with the coordinating Monarchs Die Set and a wonderful Butterflies Stencil Set that is so fun to mix with butterflies stamps or use on its own.

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

My firs card is very simple and easy. I stamped on Neenah Solar White paper, die cut and colored with copic markers all three big butterflies from Monarchs stamp set, using Y00-Y15-YR12-YR07-E08 color combo.

Fluttering By... #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Monarchs stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Next I created a green background using Tropical Leaves stencil and Distress inks. To start, I smooched Twisted Citron Oxide and Moved Lawn Distress inks on a clear acetate, spritz it with water and transferred the colors on a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor cardstock since it meant to work with water. I repeated the same process a few times and heat set the colors with my heat tool. Next I mixed a plain white embossing paste with the same shades of Distress inks and added a leaf pattern through the stencil. I let everything air dry well before popping my background on an extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) along with colored butterflies and the matching sentiment.

The second card featured beautiful Butterflies Stencil Set that comes with two layers and allows easily mix and match different colors and mediums. Once again, I started with Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor cardstock and Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Abandoned Coral Distress inks. I taped well the layer #1 from Butterflies Stencil Set and inked with my blending brushes creating an ombré effect. Then I switched to the layer #2 and added more intense colors recreating the intricate pattern on the butterflies. I lift up the stencil and inked the whole background following an ombré effect. I finished with a few tiny shimmer droplets and let the pattern air dry.

Meanwhile I heat embossed the butterflies from Monarchs stamp set on vellum with a fine white embossing powder and die cut them using the coordinating Monarchs Die Set. I also prepared the matching heat embossed sentiment on a strip of a red cardstock.

I popped the colorful background on an extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) with a foam tape for a bit of dimensional look along with the heat embossed sentiment. Next I adhered the vellum butterflies with a tiny glue dots and finished with some clear and white iridescent sequins.

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.

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

All the new August products will be avaliable for purchaise on Friday, August 18th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Hear Ye #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Knight's Quest stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I’m so excited to introduce you today another fabulous stamp set called Knight’s Quest that coordinates perfectly with release just yesterday Once Upon A Princess set. The fabulous stamps from both sets can be easily mixed and matched and give you infinite possibilities to play, creating any kind of paper crafting projects suitable for girls and boys. Knight’s Quest set comes with the coordinating dies.

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

A little bit of sparkle added from Starfield Stencil was a must for my card. I used once more the same technique and sprinkled a clear sparkling embossing powder on top of the “fresh” embossing paste once lifted up the stencil, let everything air dry for an hour or so and finally heat set the embossing powder with a heat tool, creating an easy non distractive background for the card.

Hear Ye #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Knight's Quest stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The super cute images were stamped on Strathmore Bristol paper with a waterproof ink since my color choice was on Zig markers. I also created a sort of my own patterned paper by repeatedly stamping the arrow from the same Knight’s Quest set. And I just couldn’t skip some tiny shiny details applying Glossy Accents here and there!
