Inspired by the cutest bunny searching for some candies in the pumpkin, I decided to create a circle shaker card filled with sweet treats. To start, I die cut the bunny shape along with a whole bunch of sweets using  the coordinating Hoppy Halloween dies from Strathmore Bristol paper and then stamped the images from Hoppy Halloween stamp set with a waterproof black ink using a stamping positioning tool and the negative part of the die cuts. Next I took a water brush and colored all the images with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers.

As always I’m leaving you the complete list of all the colors I used here: n.51 Lemon Yellow – n.52 Bright Yellow – n.70 Orange – n.26 Light Pink – n.25 Pink – n. 41 Light Green – n.80 Violet – n.81 Purple – n.71 Flesh Colour – n.61 Light Brown – n.67 Mustard

For the card base, I die cut twice a scalloped circle from a white cardstock and glued together the top part. Next I die cut another circle of the same dimension from a bright purple cardstock with a window inside and used it to create a shaker part that was filled with the small colored stamps from Hoppy Halloween stamp set, a few clear sequins and some matching beads. The sentiment was simply heat embossed with a white embossing powder on a piece of a black cardstock and popped on top of the card base with a foam tape along with the cute bunny.

I started this card by die cutting with the coordinating dies on Neenah Solar White paper and stamping some cute images from Classy Teachers set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink since it’s friendly for alcohol markers. Next I made a super simple coloring with copic markers making a little non directional shade.

Here’s the complete list of all the markers I used here: skin E51-E11-E55; R22-R24-R29; V12-V17; YG01-YG13; BG13-BG09; Y11-Y13-Y18; YR12-YR07; 100.

For A Great Year #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Classy Teachers stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I put aside all the colored elements and switched to the background. First of all I die cut a stitched rectangle from a black cardstock using Frames & Flags die set and heat embossed on top with a white embossing powder the small stamps from Classy Teachers set creating a random pattern. Next I blended some white pigment ink on the edges of my heat embossed panel to create a chalkboard look. To frame the black piece I created a woodgrain pattern using an embossing folder and finally assemble all the element with a bit of dimension.

Once adhered my colored pattern to the light blue card base, I die cut using the coordinating Flip-Flop Die Set another pair of cute flip-flops that were stamped and colored with a bit brighter shades along with a stamp edge frame from Framework Die used for the sentiment that comes from the same Flip-Flop Life stamp set. A coat of clear glitter pen and Glossy Accents added a finish touch to this card.

Today NND has reserved you a big surprise as they are coming with a new super cute and so adorable small format for their stamps. Really so much fun and a great price point!!!

Pina Koala, stamp set was my first choice. I loooove this cutie and immediately thought that it would be fun to pair with Cocktail Mixer stamp set.

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

Using the coordinating dies, I die cut and then stamped with a copic friendly black ink the koala from Pina Koala set and a couple of cocktails from Cocktail Mixer sets both on Neenah Solar White paper. Next I made simple copic coloring giving a bit of texture to the critter with a dot technique.

I’m leaving you all the exact colors used here: C00-C1-C2-C3-C4-C7; Y0000-Y11-Y13-Y15-Y18;YG00-YG01-YG13; R0000-R01-R11; BG0000-BG10; RV25; E33.

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

I kept the rest of the card clean and simple and only inked a soft blue background and heat embossed the sentient from the same Pina Koala on a piece of a black cardstock. Finishing this project I couldn’t not to add a few extra touched with a clear shimmer pen, Glossy Accents and a small flower from just released Cozy Campers stamp set.

Next we have a super adorable Cat Treats stamp set that was transformed into a lovely watercolor background on my second card.

You Make Life Sweet #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Pina Koala stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I went for a more soft look by repeatedly stamping the images on a piece of watercolor paper from Cat Treats stamp set with a waterproof brown ink instead of a usual black one. Next I added some happy and bright shades with regular watercolors and heat embossed the sentiment on a bright pink cardstock. Arranging all the elements, I reached for Frames & Flags Die Set both for the scalloped frame and the fish-tail banner.
