Fresh Summer Watercolor Card (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

Squeeze The Day #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Lemon Twist stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Hello and welcome!

I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and even more excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog sharing a fresh summer card!

Today’s card is entirely made from one stamp set! I played with small, but incredibly beautiful Lemon Twist stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs and my ever favorite technique – HEAT EMBOSSING! To start, I die cut all the shapes I need for this project using the coordinating Lemon Twist Die Set. I work on Extra White Hot Pressed Watercolor paper from Fabriano brand and heat embossed the lemons with a fine white embossing powder. If you have troubles with heat embossing, I highly recommend you to prep the paper with a generous coat of Powder Tool to prevent the embossing powder from sticking to your paper where you don’t want it. Then use VersaMark Clear Sticky ink since this ink stays wet for a while and allows to achieve a perfect impression. Once heat set the embossing powder, I proceeded with coloring using regular watercolors from my customised palette.

An extended A2 size (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) card base was made from Bazzill Blueberry Sour cardstock. I heal embossed on the card front the sentiment along with a few lemon zests using a fine gold embossing powder and the same Powder Tool plus VersaMark Clear Sticky ink that I mentioned before. Then I flicked some tiny gold droplets and finally popped the colored lemons towards the top and bottom of the card front.

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.

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.

All the new February products will be available for purchase on Friday, February 21th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Rejoice In Spring #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Easter Lily stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The last day of the release has reserved us small, but not less beautiful Easter Lily and Hello Spring stamp sets. All the die cut fans can get the coordinating Easter Lily Die Set as well.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away both new Easter Lily and Hello Spring stamp sets to lucky winners so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

On my stop of this hop I’m sharing two spring cards. The first one is a watercolor project featuring beautiful flowers. To start, I proceed with heat embossing. I stamped wonderful Easter Lily with VersaMark clear sticky ink, sprinkled with a white embossing powder and zapped with my heat gun.

I die cut the image using the coordinating Easter Lily Die Set and proceed with watercoloring using regular watercolors I have in my stash.

Rejoice In Spring #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Easter Lily stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The background was inked through Gingham stencil with Pumice Stone Distress ink and the sentiment from the same Easter Lily stamp set was simply stamped in the center of the card front. I also die cut an open white frame using Framework Die Set and started assembling all the elements with a bit of dimension.

Rejoice In Spring #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Easter Lily stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

As a final touch I added a few Nuvo Drops in Gloss White, Antique Rose, Rhubarb Crumble colors.

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

My second card is very simple with some bright and fresh spring colors! It was made using ONLY Hello Spring stamp set. To start, I prepared a round card base and cut away the curved branches from the top part of the stamp with my scarp small scissors so that I could stamp them a bit higher above the main image and then once again on the bottom part of the circle. I used a copic friendly Memento Tuxedo Black ink for stamping and colored the image with copic markers.

As always, I’m leaving the complete list of all the colors used on this card: T0-T1-T3; YR00-YR02-YR04; Y00-Y11-Y15; BG10-BG11-BG23-BG32; RV00-RV02-RV04-RV13-RV14; R20-R21-R22-R24; YG00-YG01-YG03 plus G07; V01-V04.

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

For the card base I die cut a slightly larger scalloped circle using a flower patterned paper, adhered the colored circle on top and finishes with a tiny bow and a few matching sequins.

Stamping On Kraft Cardstock (ft. Purple Onion Designs)

Your Friendship Warms My Heart #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

Hello and welcome!!!

I’ve popped in with a fun stamped card using some bold stamps from amazing Purple Onion Designs’ Silhouettes Collection Designed By Julian Charlton.

Your Friendship Warms My Heart #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

To start, I prepared an A2 size kraft card base using Neenah Desert Storm cardstock. Next I stamped with a white pigment ink Silhouettes – Gifts, Claude (hedgehog), Frederick (fox), Frankie (squirrel), Marshmallow (bunny), Cocoa (winter bunny in hat) stamps. I heat set the ink and then stamped on top the same images slightly offsetting them. Here’re the dye inks I used for the second stamping: Simon Hurley Clear Skies, Simon Hurley Overzealous, Simon Hurley Traffic Cone, Simon Hurley Slippery When Wet, Simon Says Stamp Hot Mama. At this point the card was pretty much done. I only had to add a heat embossed sentiment from Warming Winter Thoughts Sentiment Set that was popped on a foam tape slightly offset to match the colorful images.

That’s all for today! As always thanks so much for stopping by!

Tatiana
