Have A Beautiful Birthday Card (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

Have A Beautiful Birthday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Roses 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 one layer watercolor birthday card entirely made using only one stamp set.

In fact, the beautiful flowers on this project come as a cluster with beautiful Roses stamp set. To start, I prepared a mask by stamping roses on a piece of masking paper and fussy cutting with my sharp small scissors right against the stamp lines. Next I trimmed a rectangle large enough to cover an extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) from Strathmore Bristol paper. I stamped the roses in the corner first using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and my MISTI tool, then I applied the mask on top to protect the image and added more flowers towards the bottom and left edges of my background. At this point I also added a simply stamped sentiment that comes from the same Roses stamp set.

I colored the amazing flowers with water based Tombow markers, playing with cool pinks (markers n.703 and n.725) and warmer shades (markers n.723 and n.743). The leaves were filled with yellowish green tones, using markers n.076 and n.133. I wanted to keep the main focus on the roses and coloring and so, as a finish touch, I added only some tiny colorful splotches and a few clear iridescent sequins.

Newton’s Nook Designs’ June Release and Giveaway – Day 4 – Porch Swing Friends & Roses


Hello and welcome to the final day the Newton’s Nook June release! Thanks so much for hopping along all this week and for all the wonderful comments you left me! I appreciate so much all your love and support!

All the new June products will be available for purchase on Friday, June 19th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Life Is Better With A Friend Like You #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Porch Swing Friends stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The last day of the release has reserved us two small, but not less adorable stamp sets: the cutest Porch Swing Friends and beautiful Roses. Both sets 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!




My first card features the cutest sweet scene from Porch Swing Friends stamp set. Since I worked with water based markers, I went for my win win combo: Strathmore Bristol paper, VersaFine Onyx Black ink, Pentel Water Brush and MISTI tool. I made the die cutting first using the coordinating Porch Swing Friends Die Set, then stamped the open images from Porch Swing Friends stamp set, let the ink air dry and finally colored all the elements.

As always, I’m leaving you all the exact colors used on this project: TOMBOW MARKERS N79, 133, 195, 452, 723, 743, 933, 946, 947, 992, 993, 977.

An extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) was trimmed and scored from a light gray card stock. I cut out another white rectangle to go on top where I die cut a square using Frames Squared Die Set, creating a sort of polaroid frame element. I thought a bit out of boxes and transformed the cloud die from Sky Borders Die Set into a tree foliage by inking it with Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink. I also inked the leftover die cut square with Peacock Feather Distress Oxide ink to use as a background behind the fur friends. Porch Swing Friends Die Set comes with an extra word dies and so I picked the “relax” one to pair with the stamped sentiment from Porch Swing Friends stamp set. Finally I assembled the card with a bit of dimension.

The next project features amazing Roses stamp and die sets. To start, I die cut twice the flower cluster from Fabriano Extra White Hot Pressed Watercolor paper. I used my MISTI tool and the negative part of the die to stamped the roses with Antique Linen Distress ink. This type of ink is very light and reactivates with water which makes it perfect for no-line coloring.

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

I’ll be honest, no-line coloring is not fast, but I looooove coloring and don’t mind to spend a few hours working on a project sometimes. I used regular watercolors this time and tried to mix different shades between pinks and yellows to create some variation in colors.

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

Once finished with coloring, I prepaid a kraft card base with faux stitched scalloped rectangle from Frames & Flags Die Set. Then I heat embossed the sentiment with a fine gold embossing powder and framed it into a circle using new Slimline Frames & Portholes Die Set. I finished this project with a matching kraft and gold bow and a few clear iridescent sequins.

Newton’s Nook Designs’ June Release and Giveaway – Day 3 – Neigh


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

All the new June products will be available for purchase on Friday, June 19th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Galloping By With A Birthday Wish #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Neigh stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I’m so excited to introduce you today amazing new Neigh stamp set! This set contains three cute horses and a lot of sentiments that comes in different sizes and styles. In case you’re interested, there’s the coordinating Neigh Die Set too.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away Neigh stamp set to a lucky winner 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 you’ll find a clean and simple project that features some new and “old” products mixed together. First of all I die cut all the shapes I needed for this card using Neigh Die Set and Moo Die Set. I worked on Strathmore Bristol paper since my intention was to use watercolor markers. For the same reason I used VersaFine Onyx Black ink for stamping since it’s waterproof along with my MISTI tool and the negative parts of the dies to help me with the alignment while I was making stamping using Neigh and Moo stamp sets. I let the ink air dry and then colored all the elements with Tombow markers.

As always, I’m leaving you all the exact colors used on this project: TOMBOW MARKERS N45, 026, 062, 452, 723, 856, 905, 925, 946, 947, 977.

Galloping By With A Birthday Wish #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Neigh stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

To ground my colored stamps, I trimmed a narrow strip of Tim Holtz Watercolor Cardstock where I inked some hills and grass using Hills & Grass stencil and a few clouds through Clouds stencil. As always I used my favorites Distress inks in Twisted Citron, Peacock Feather and Moved Lawn colors along with the blending brushes to achieve a nice and smooth result. The first part of the sentiment was simply stamped towards the top part of the  inked piece while the other was heat embossed on a narrow strip of a black cardstock. Finally I popped all the elements on an extended A2 size white card base made from Neenah Solar White paper and finished with a few matching sequins.

Birthdays Aren't So Baaaaad! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Bleat stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Cuteness overloads today on my blog! I’m sure that you’ll be blown away by super adorable goats from new Bleat stamp set! In case you’re wondering, there’s the coordinating Bleat Die Set too.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away Bleat stamp set to a lucky winner 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 you’ll find another slimline birthday card with a pop of bright colors and a super fun pun! As usual I started with the die cutting and cut out all the goat shapes plus some accessories using the coordinating Bleat Die Set. I chose Neenah Solar White paper this time and made the stamping with Memento Tuxedo Black ink using Bleat stamp set and my MISTI tool. The negative parts of the die cuts were a perfect guide for the alignment. All the elements were colored with copic markers.

As always, I’m leaving you all the exact colors used on this project: As always, I’m leaving you all the exact colors used on this project: COPIC E0000-E30-E31-E33; C00-C1-C3; W00-W1-W3; T0-T1-T3-T5; RV00-RV21-RV23-RV25; Y00-Y11-Y13-YY15-Y17-Y18; BG10-BG11-BG23; YG01-YG05.

Birthdays Aren't So Baaaaad! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Bleat stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The layout of this project was created with the new just released yesterday Slimline Frames & Portholes Die Set. I die cut a light gray scalloped rectangle to place directly on the card base and then popped on top a simple white faux stitched rectangle. The inner circles were inked with Squeezed Lemonade, Peacock Feather, Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick Distress inks and the blending brushes.

Birthdays Aren't So Baaaaad! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Bleat stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Finally I arranged the colored goats in each circle along with a few birthday accessories. I also heat embossed the fun pun from the same Bleat stamp set and then framed it into a circle from Circle Frames Die Set. A few clear sparkling sequins along with a generous coat of a clear shimmer pen finished this card.
