Sending You Piles of Pumpkin & Smiles #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton’s Pumpkin Patch stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

New Newton’s Pumpkin Patch stamp set is another gorgeous addition to the collection of NND “big” stamps. Love the amazing design filled with tons of pumpkins and a few kitties peeking from behind. Such a unique design! This set don’t have the coordinating dies, but it goes perfectly with  Frames & Flags and Framework Die Sets.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Newton’s Pumpkin Patch stamp sets away 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 project, I decided not to alterate the wonderful pile of pumpkins and invent a fancy design, but simply invest my time on coloring.

I used good quality watercolor paper and stamped the image with a black waterproof ink (VersaFine Onyx Black). Next I tapped the paper to a hardboard to prevent it from wapping and spent quite some time coloring the stamp with regular watercolors. I have a customized watercolor palette made from Winsor & Newton, Schmincke and Daniel Smith watercolors. Once dried, the watercolor piece was framed with Frames & Flags die set and popped on a kraft card base. Finally the matching sentiment from the same Newton’s Pumpkin Patch stamp set was simply heat embossed on a piece of a black cardstock and finished this project.

Newton’s Nook Designs’ 5 Year Celebration and Giveaway – Day 3

and

Hello and welcome!

It’s Day 3 of the Newton’s Nook Designs 5 Year Celebration Week and today I’m sooooo thrilled to showcase you two new super cute and absolutely aaaaa-dorable stamp sets!!! Ready?!

All the new July products will be available for purchase on Friday, July 20th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Stand Tall And Be Fabulous #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Flamingo Flock stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I know that many stampers like BIG stamps that can cover entire card front and make the coloring super easy as you don’t need to make any masking or arranging. So if you are the one, I bet I can heat you screaming today because NND is reveling a fabulous addition to their collection with Shark Frenzy and Flamingo Flock stamp sets. These sets don’t have the coordinating dies, but match perfectly already released Frames & Flags and Framework Die Sets.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving a $20 store credit to Newton’s Nook Designs to one lucky winner so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

On my first card I applied probably my even favorite technique to use with watercoloring. As you can guess it’s the emboss resist.

Stand Tall And Be Fabulous #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Flamingo Flock stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

First of all I heat embossed Flamingo Flock stamp on a watercolor paper with a detailed white embossing powder and proceeded with coloring using my regular watercolors.

Stand Tall And Be Fabulous #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Flamingo Flock stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Once the watercolor piece was dried, I framed it with Frames & Flags Die Set and heat embossed the sentiment from the same Flamingo Flock set.

You're Looking Shark Today #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Shark Frenzy stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Working with Shark Frenzy stamp set, I decided to use the emboss resist technique differently. I obviously started by stamping with VersaFine Onyx Black ink this time on a piece on a watercolor cardstock. Since this ink is a pigment one, I was able to heat emboss on top of stamping using a clear embossing powder. Next I took Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress inks and applied the color with and ink blending tool. Super quick and easy!!! I think it’s a great way to use those big stamps without spending much time on coloring.

Finishing the card, I fussy cut Shark Frenzy stamp following the outside lines, and added a few elements die cut with Frames & Flags and Sea Borders Die Sets.

Newton’s Nook Designs June Release and Giveaway – Day 3 – Wine A Little and Coffee & Wine

Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the Newton’s Nook Designs June Release!
All the new June products will be available for purchase on Friday, June 22th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Wine A Little #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Wine A Little stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today all the Design Team is focusing on two amazing stamp sets! The first one is called Wine A Little and it comes with the coordinating dies! And the second one is small, but so adorable Coffee & Wine set!

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

Today I tried to stretch both stamp sets as much as I can and used them in different ways with different coloring mediums and techniques.

Wine A Little #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Wine A Little stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The first card featuring Wine A Little stamp set has a few cute images as a focus point. All of them were die cut with the coordinating dies on Strathmore Bristol paper and colored with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers. I also added a little heart on the bottle of wine from Newton Loves Coffee stamp set. Working on the layout I reached again to the die cutting working with inside scalloped frame from Framework Die Set. Then I filled the light green rectangle by repeatedly stamping with VersaMark clear sticky ink some little images from Wine A Little stamp set and heat embossing them with a fine detailed white embossing powder to achieve a fun pattern. Next I switched to the sentiments and after heat embossing the main on a strip of a black cardstock, I grabbed another couple of the sentiments from the same Wine A Little set and made a tone-on-tone stamping on the kraft background.

Wine A Little #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Wine A Little stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Working on my second card, I started with a watercolor piece of paper and divided it in two parts with Land Border Die set. One of them was filled with coffee images from Coffee & Wine stamp set and the other with wine theme elements to match the beautiful big sentiment from the same Coffee & Wine stamp set that was heat embossed on a black cardstock.

Life Is... #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Coffee & Wine stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

As you may guess, the choice of the watercolor paper was guided by the coloring  medium that  I decided to use on this card. I took my regular watercolors and tried to make a very loose watercoloring. Honestly it was hard for me not to stay in the stamp lines, but I wet well the paper before dropping the colors on top and let the water do the work for me and spread the colors all across.

Life Is... #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Coffee & Wine stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Assembling the card, I popped all the elements on foam tape for a bit of dimension and added a few clear sequins as a finish touch.

Crafting Desert Divas – June Release Sneak Peek – Polygon Stencil

CCD

Happy Monday Everyone!
It’s time for the new June release from Craftin Desert Divas and today I’m sharing the first peek on the amazing Polygon Stencil!

All the products from the CDD June release will be available for purchase on Friday June, 15 at Craftin Desert Divas online shop.

Hello Beautiful #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Polygon Stencil by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

Well, the use of the new stencil on the card I’m sharing today is a bit unconventional. I transformed the beautiful triangle pattern into the watercolor element. And to do that first of all I placed Polygon Stencil on a piece of a watercolor paper, taped it to the desk to hold everything in place and then traced all the open areas with a sharp pencil.

Hello Beautiful #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Polygon Stencil by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

I tried to keep my hand as light as possible and before starting the watercoloring process went with an eraser on top of every line to soften them a little bit. Next I taped well the watercolor paper to a hard board to prevent it from warping during the watercoloring and played with some regular watercolors. I really enjoyed the process and made some watercolor study completing this piece. I used three different shades of purple and violet tones and tried to give and ombré look to the front panel.

Hello Beautiful #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Polygon Stencil by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

Once the paper was dried, I trimmed it a little to fit a regular size A2 card base and popped on top with a foam tape. The beautiful bold sentiment from Hello Beautiful stamp set was heat embossed on vellum, fussy cut with scissors and adhered with Multi Medium Matte to the card base since this glue dries clear and matte and that makes it perfect for vellum and clear sequins.
