Hello and welcome to Day 1 of the Newton’s Nook August release! I’m so excited you’ve joined me today and can’t wait to share with you all the fabulous new products!

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

Happiness Is... #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Sip And Stories stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Coffee, books, a cozy armchair and a cat company make an autumn day really perfect! Take your sit, grab a mug and enjoy the Newton’s Nook Designs’ new release! The first day has reserved us a fabulous Sips & Stories stamp set that comes with the coordinating Sips & Stories Die Set. Plus two new amazing Mugs and Houndstooth stencils!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away Sip & Stories 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 copic colored card paired with both new stencil patterns! To start, I die cut from Neenah Solar White paper the girl shape along with a couple of accessories using Big Shot machine. 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 Sips & Stories stamp set and Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Finally I proceeded with coloring.

As always, I’m leaving you all the exact colors used on this project: COPIC MARKERS skin E50-E51-E53-E55; YR04-YR12-YR14-YR24-YG21-YR30; E25-E99; Y21-Y32; YG91-YG93-YG95-YG97; V0000-V01-V12-V15; R22-R24-R46; B91-B93-B95-B97; B21-B24-B26; RV21; YG01-YG17; T0-T1-T3.

An extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) was trimmed and scored from the same Neenah Solar White paper. I applied new beautiful Mugs stencil on top of the card front and inked it using Antique Linen Distress ink and the blending brushes. Next I trimmed a piece of a kraft cardstock and transferred the Houndstooth pattern with a plain white embossing paste. The layout was completed with a die cut tag from Fancy Edges Tag Die Set. The matching sentiment from Sips & Stories stamp set was split in two parts. I stamped the first line on a narrow orange strip of paper while the other part was positioned directly on the card base. Finally I assemble all the elements with a bit of dimension and finished with a few clear sparkling sequins and a coat of Wink Of Stella Clear Glitter pen.

And here’s what I came up with for you today! A simple watercolor project that is entirely focused on the new wonderful Floral Envie stamp set. As usual, to start, I die cut the envelope and a few butterflies on Strathmore Bristol paper and then stamped the open images from Floral Envie stamp set with VersaFine Onyx Black ink. I used my MISTI tool and the negative parts of the dies to help me achieve a perfect alignment. I colored all the images using water based markers from Altenew Tropical Fiesta set plus n.055 and n.990 Tombow markers.

An extended A2 size kraft card base was embellished with beautiful Handwritten Letter pattern. I used a light brown ink for a soft tone-on-tone look. Finally I popped the colored envie along with a heat embossed sentiment from the same Floral Envie stamp set on a foam tape and added a few clear sparkling sequins as a finish touch.

And here’s what I came up with for you today! A super sweet and easy scene made with the cutest images from Happy Little Trees stamp set.

An extended A2 size card front (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) made from Neenah Solar White  paper was masked with a piece of Post-It tape. I inked the sky and ground portions through new just released yesterday Outdoor Scene Builder Stencil with Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon Distress inks and my blending brushes. Next I very carefully cut in two the sentiment from Happy Little Trees stamp set using a pair of the sharp small scissors so that I can switch the stamped word “happy” to a bigger die cut one from new Happy Word With Shadow SugarCut. I stamped the sentiment using the same VersaFine Onyx Black ink used before for a perfect match and colored the die cut word “happy” with markers before adhering it to the card front. Finally I popped all the colored stamps with a bit of dimension and skipped any other embellishment.

SugarPea Designs Spring 2020 Release: Day 2

I Love Spending Time With You #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cottontail Cuties stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the SugarPea Spring Product Release!

I hope you’ll join SPD Design Team over the next 4 days because we’ll be sharing Sweet Peeks for the products that will be available for purchase starting this Friday, May 24th at 2 PM EST in the SPD Store.

Each day will be full of inspiration, and as always, you’ll have a shot at winning one of FIVE GIVEAWAYS!  All you need to do is leave a comment for your chance to win.

**Please note that links to our store for these new products will not go LIVE until 2PM EST on May 24th.**

Today’s Introductions include… the most adorable Cottontail Cuties stamp set and the coordinating Cottontail Cuties SugarCut that is so helpful to get all the tiny images cut out in no time plus wonderful Outdoor Scene Builder Stencil.

Love, love love so much the new Cottontail Cuties stamp set because it filled with the most adorable little critters and accessories that are so helpful for building sweet scenes on the cards!!! To start, I die cut on a piece of Neenah Solar White paper all the shapes from Cottontail Cuties SugarCut and save the negative parts for all the future stamping. As usual I used my MISTI tool and Memento Tuxedo Black ink for stamping, helping myself with the negative parts of the dies for a perfect alignment. Next I simply colored all the stamps with copic markers.

In case you’re wondering, here’s the complete list of all COPIC markers used on this project: YG0000-YG00-YG01-YG23-YG41-G05-G09; YR000-YR00-YR02-YR04-YR07; Y0000-Y00-Y11; W00-W1-W2-W4; V01-V04; R00-R20-R22-R24; RV00-RV02; E0000-E000-E30-E31-E33-E35.

I Love Spending Time With You #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cottontail Cuties stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

When I work with cuties, I prefer to keep everything clean and simple. For the card front I inked a very light grass and sky portions through new Outdoor Scene Builder Stencil with Twisted Citron Distress Oxide and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide inks. I used the blending brushes this time instead of a regular sponge foams since they make the blending very easy and help to keep the colors light. Finally I started assembling all the elements together with a bit of dimension. I added a heat embossed sentiment that comes from the same Cottontail Cuties and a few clear sparkling sequins as a finish touch.

SugarPea Designs Spring 2020 Release: Day 1

Piece of Cake 3D Boxes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Piece of Cake SugarCut by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome to Day 1 of the SugarPea Spring Product Release!

I hope you’ll join SPD Design Team over the next 5 days because we’ll be sharing Sweet Peeks for the products that will be available for purchase starting this Friday, May 22th at 6 PM EST in the SPD Store.

Each day will be full of inspiration, and as always, you’ll have a shot at winning one of FIVE GIVEAWAYS!  All you need to do is leave a comment for your chance to win.

**Please note that links to our store for these new products will not go LIVE until 6PM EST on May 22th.**

Today’s Introductions include… the fantastic Piece of Cake – 3D Box. These boxes can be assembled to open in two different ways (top or back) and ten pieces create the whole cake.

There’s no much to say about the assembling. The base must be die cut two times and the back flap must be cut out from one base for the correct assembling. In case you’re interested, SugarPea Designs prepared a video tutorial on their YouTube channel.

You have two options for the lid as showcased in the product image that I posted above and a wide variety of additional accessories to suit any occasion and style.

Due to the COVID-19 emergency, I was not able to order new patterned paper for this project and so I dug deep into my scrapbook stash and found this sweet themed patterned paper from Dovecrafts. I don’t believe they produce it any more, but I highly encourage you to watch around and use whatever you already have on hand. You can start with a plain white paper and add colors by your own.

Ten pieces placed together create the whole cake.
