STAMPtember Exclusive: Pocket Full of Happy Stamp Set from Newton’s Nook Designs

Thanks... #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Pocket Full of Happy stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Hello and welcome!

Today Newton’s Nook Designs is featured on the Simon Says Stamp site with an EXCLUSIVE stamp set that was designed just for the 2020 STAMPtember celebration!

You can purchase the new Newton’s Nook Pocket Full of Happy clear stamp set or get the set with the coordinating dies at Simon Says Stamp. Remember, this item is ONLY available through Simon Says Stamp while supplies last!And here’s my inspirational project for you! I played with all the super adorable images from Pocket Full of Happy stamp set and arranged them in a simple layout with a faux clothesline! To start, I stamped all the critters on Neenah Solar White paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored all the stamps with copic markers and then fussy cut with my favorite sharp small scissors since I didn’t have the coordinating dies.

As always, I’m sharing all the exact colors used on this project: COPIC dog on the left E30-E31-E33-E35 plus 100; cat YR30-Y21-Y35-YR14 plus RV21-RV0000; dog on the right Y11-Y26-YR31-YR24-E99; pockets B91-B93-B95-B97; C00-C1.

Thanks... #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Pocket Full of Happy stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

An extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) was made from the same Neenah Solar White paper. I added a cloudy background inked with Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch Distress inks through NND Cloudy Sky Stencil using the blending brushes. I flicked some tiny water droplets and splashed of white gouache on my inked background to add some interest. The sentiment from Pocket Full of Happy stamp set was simply stamped towards the bottom edge of the card front with Memento Tuxedo Black ink for a perfect match. Finally the colored stamps were popped on a foam tape and arranged across the sky portion with a twine underneath.

I hope you liked my today’s project using this new exclusive set! Remember, you can only get this design at Simon Says Stamp while supplies last! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day!

Watercolor Autumn Leaves Card (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

Sending Prayers #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Autumn Leaves Die 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 simple autumn feeling card!

Today’s card was really easy to make. To start, I took a piece of a cold pressed watercolor paper since it has more texture compared to a hot pressed version and paint a sort of splotchy and uneven background, creating a green, a red and yellowish areas. I flicked some colorful droplets on top along with white and gold ones to bring more interest to the pattern. I let the paper air dry and then die cut some leaves using Autumn Leaves Die Set.

Sending Prayers #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Autumn Leaves Die set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

An extended A2 size (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) card base was made from a kraft cardstock. I trimmed and positioned on top another slightly smaller panel made from the watercolor paper where I wrapped and tied a bow using a matching kraft twine. I arranged my watercolor leaves and glued them directly on the background. Finally I added a heat embossed sentiment from Heartfelt Essentials stamp set. 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. A few sequins finished this simple watercolor card.

That’s all for today! Hope you like this lovely autumn card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

Hang In There #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Knight Owl stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

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

Cuteness overloads on the last day of the August release with two new small, but absolutely adorable Knight Owl stamp and Pug-kin stamp sets. Both of them come with the coordinating dies.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away both new stamp sets to lucky winners so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!Knight Owl turned our as a clean and simple card. I used my win win combo for the water based markers: Strathmore Bristol paper, VersaFine Onyx Black ink and a small waterbrush from Pentel. To start, I die cut the owl shape from the coordinating Knight Owl Die set, a branch and a few leaves from Toucan Party Die Set. I used, as always, the negative parts of the dies inside the MISTI tool to help me with the alignment while I was stamping the open images from Knight Owl and Toucan Party stamp sets. Finally I colored all the elements with water based markers.

As always, I’m leaving you all the exact colors used on this project: TOMBOW MARKERS N75, 025, 126, 133, 703, 947, 990 plus Zig Clean Colour Brush marker n. 61 Light Brown.

Hang In There #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Knight Owl stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

For the background I prepared a faux stitched circle using Circle Frames Die Set and inked it with Tumbled Glass Distress ink and the blending brush. I also added new just released Houndstooth stencil creating a tone on tone pattern applying the same Tumbled Glass Distress ink with more heavy hand. I stamped the encouraging sentiment from another new Heartfelt Wishes stamp set and started assembling all the elements together on an extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″).

Hang In There #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Knight Owl stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Working on my second project, I started in the same exact way with the same exact products I mentioned above. First I used the coordinating Pug-kin Die Set to achieve the whole image plus two additional pumpkins. Next I stamped the open images from Pug-kin stamp set and colored them with Tombow markers.

This is the complete list of colors used by me on this card: TOMBOW MARKERS N79, 025, 055, 133, 177, 905, 912, 925, 933, 946, 947, 969, 990, 992, 993.

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

The background was die cut from Frames and Flags Die Set; inked with Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Blueprint Sketch, Faded Jeans Distress inks and the blending brushes; and then embellished through amazing new Spiderweb Stencil applied with a white embossing paste. I popped the Distress background on an extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) with a bit of dimension, arranged the pumpkins and finished with a few fish-tailed banners die cut from Banner Trio Die Set.

Newton’s Nook Designs’ August Release and Giveaway – Day 3 – Batty Newton, Spooky Roundabout and Spiderweb

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

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

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

Happy Haunting #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Spooky Roundabout stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Halloween stuff is overwhelming the day 3 of the release with super adorable Batty Newton stamp set that comes with the coordinating Batty Newton Die Set. Then there’s another addition to the roundabout series of stamps with sweet and scary Spooky Roundabout stamp set that obviously, like others, coordinates with Circle Frames Die Set. And more… the matching Spiderweb Stencil is a marvellous product to use on the Halloween cards.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away new Batty Newton and Spooky Roundabout stamp sets to lucky winners so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

My first card features the cutest Batty Newton stamp set. I started working on Neenah Solar White paper and die cut the kitty shape plus a couple of small bats using the coordinating Batty Newton Die Set. I saved and used the negative parts of the dies inside my MISTI tool to help me with the alignment while I was making the stamping using Batty Newton stamp set and Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Finally I colored the batty Newton with copic markers and then added a few white dots and accents with a white gel pen.

As always, I’m leaving you all the exact colors used on this project: COPIC MARKERS cat YR20-YR21-YR24-YR27-E99 plus RV0000-RV02; V0000-V01-V12-V09.

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

The matching purple background was painted on a piece of inexpensive watercolor paper that I had on hand. I used regular watercolors and kept everything very simple and easy purposely giving to the pattern an uneven and splotchy look. I heat set the watercolor piece and then applied new Spiderweb Stencil on top with a plain white embossing paste. I let the background piece air dry and meanwhile trimmed and score an extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) plus another additional slightly smaller rectangle with a circle window towards the center die cut from Circle Frames Die Set. The sentiment from the same Batty Newton stamp set was simply heat embossed on a strip of a black card stock. At this point I assembled all the elements together using foam tape for a fun dimensional look.

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

The Spooky Roundabout stamp set was transformed into a shaker card that still was very easy to create. To start, I stamped the main image on Neenah Solar White paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored the whole piece with copic markers.

In case you’re interested, here’s the complete list of all the colors used by me on this project: COPIC MARKERS B32-B23-B39 plus colorless blender 0; Y13-Y15-Y17; C0-C2; T1-T3-T5-T7; YR04-YR07; YG01-YG67.

Happy Haunting #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Spooky Roundabout stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The card base has an extended A2 size (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) and was created from a light gray cardstock. Assembling the card, I adhered the colored piece directly on the card base. The shaker part is a simply trimmed additional rectangle slightly smaller than the card base where I die cut a circle window using the coordinating Circle Frames Die Set. I glued a piece of clear acetate to the back side of the circle window, popped the whole element on a foam tape and filled the shaker area with a few clear round and star shape sequins. The last finish touch gave a heat embossed sentiment placed on a 3D banner from Banner Trio Die Set.

Newton’s Nook Designs’ August Release and Giveaway – Day 2 – Paw-tumn Newton, Fall Roundabout Stamp Set and Heartfelt Wishes Stamp


Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the Newton’s Nook August release!

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

Smile #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Paw-tumn Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Welcome Autumn #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fall Rounabout stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The second day of the release will surprise you with lots of different, but not less amazing designs! There is a new super adorable addition to the kitty collection with Paw-tumn Newton stamp set that comes with the coordinating Paw-tumn Newton Die Set. Then we have beautiful Fall Roundabout stamp set that, as other stamps from the roundabout series, coordinates perfectly with Circle Frames Die Set. And finally a gorgeous Heartfelt Wishes stamp set filled with many sentiments in different sizes and styles.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away new Paw-tumn Newton and Fall Roundabout stamp sets to lucky winners so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

My first card features the cutest Paw-tumn Newton stamp set. Since the fabulous autumn image from this set is quite big, I decided to keep everything clean and simple and just highlight the stamp with watercoloring. To start, I die cut the kitty plus a couple of pumpkins and autumn leaves with the coordinating Paw-tumn Newton Die Set. I also prepared a faux stitched rectangle from Frames and Flags Die Set while I had my Big Shot die cutting machine on the desk. I worked on Arches Cold Pressed Watercolor paper since I like its texture. I saved the negative parts of the dies and used them inside my MISTI tool for a perfect alignment while I was making the stamping using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and Paw-tumn Newton stamp set. The stamps and the background were colored with regular watercolors from my customised palette.

Smile #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Paw-tumn Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

An extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) was made from a kraft cardstock. I simply stamped the “SMILE” sentiment from new Heartfelt Wishes stamp set directly on the watercolor background and started assembling all the element together with a bit of dimension.

Smile #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Paw-tumn Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The second card highlights new beautiful Fall Roundabout stamp set. To start, I heat embossed with a fine white embossing powder the leaves stamp on Strathmore Bristol paper. Then I framed it using a scalloped circle from Circle Frames Die Set and proceeded with coloring using Tombow markers and a small water brush from Pentel.

As always, I’m sharing all the exact colors used here: TOMBOW MARKERS 025, 055, 126, 476, 723, 743, 905, 933, 990, 991.

Welcome Autumn #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fall Rounabout stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

An extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) made from Neenah Solar White paper was embellished with a tone on tone pattern through new just released yesterday Houndstooth stencil with a plain white embossing paste just for something little extra. I let the background air dry and then assembled the card together wrapping a light kraft twine a few times around the card front, popping the colored circle on a foam tape and adding a heat embossed sentiment from the same Fall Roundabout stamp set. A few clear sparkle sequins gave a finish touch to this project.
