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.

STAMPtember Exclusive Set from SugarPea Designs

It's Your Birthday! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cuddly Cacti stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!

I’m so pleased to be sharing in the excitement of STAMPtember with our friends at Simon Says Stamp! Today I’m sharing with you a stamp set created by SugarPea Designs exclusively for this event called Cuddly Cacti. There is also a coordinating die set and you can purchase them as a bundle or separately!

This set is only available at Simon Says Stamp and while supplies last!

Here’s your look at Cuddly Cacti.

Creating this card, I started with a Bristol paper from Strathmore brand, stamped some cute cacti using VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof and fussy cut all the elements. Next I proceeded with coloring using Tombow markers. I’ve just got a small pack and felt totally in love with this new to me watercolor medium.

Here’s the complete list of all the colors used: n.126, n.673, n.723, n.725, n.912, n.990, n.992.

It's Your Birthday! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cuddly Cacti stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

I decided to keep everything clean and simple since the Cuddly Cacti are so cute and adorable. So I prepared a regular A2 size white card base and a scalloped frame die cut from Card Front Element Builder set. Using a piece of a sticky tape I masked a horizontal line and blended Antique Linen and Wilted Violet Distress inks with a very light hand. Once shaped the sentiment in a fish-tailed banner, I assembled everything with bit of dimension using a foam tape just for something little extra finish touch.

Hope you like this cute and simple card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!!

Next I die cut some elements using Hocus Pocus and SpokyScape SugarCuts and prepared the card front panel from Card Front Element Builder set.

What's Brewin'? #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Hocus Pocus stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Assembling all the elements with a bit of dimension, I added two stripes of patterned paper from Spot & Stripes Pad and simply stamped the sentiment using Darling Dragons stamp set.

Now let’s see today’s fantastic introductions so perfect for the fall season that include Eucalyptus Wreath and Grateful Greetings stamp sets and Grateful SugarCut.




I’m fond of fall and so these new amazing products immediately make me fall in love and inspired this card.

Grateful #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Eucalyptus Wreath stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

To start, I placed a piece of a watercolor paper into a stamping positioning tool and stamped the beautiful leaf wreath from Eucalyptus Wreath set using a green dye ink. Next I inked the same stamp with VersaMark ink and stamped once again the image right on top of the previous one and heat embossed the stamp lines with a clear embossing powder as I wished to protect all the stamp details during the watercoloring. I used a few tones of green and a bit of gold shades from my regular watercolors and made a super simple splotchy wash of colors. Next I switched to the die cut sentiment from Grateful SugarCut. I’m a great fan of word dies and love to stack a few layers together to make the sentiment stand out more. And so I die cut from a plain white cardstock and glued together a few layers of the word Grateful and then finished with the last die cut made using a metallic golden paper. The watercolor piece was framed with Card Front Element Builder set and popped on a kraft card base. A little bow made from the matching kraft and golden strings finished this project.

Let’s spread no more words since this post is long and start with the first card featuring so adorable Halloween Trio stamp set.

Trick Or Treat #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Halloween Trio stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I stated with the coordinating Halloween trio dies and die cut the cute critters along with the word sentiment and a few bats from Neenah Solar white paper. I aligned the negative part of the cuts in the stamping positioning tool and stamped the Halloween Trio with Memento black ink. Next I spent some time coloring the critters and the bats with copic markers.

In case you’re curious, here’s the complete list of all the copic markers I used here: YR02-YR04-YR07-YR07-YR18-E08; Y32-YR21-YR24-YR27; YR30-YR31; E30-E31-E33-E35; E41-E42-E43; C00-C1-C3; YG21-YG95; BG70; W00-W1;T1-T7; R30; 100

Trick Or Treat #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Halloween Trio stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Assembling all the elements, I created a night scene using Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire Distress inks and Sunscape stencil for the rays of light, popped the cute critters on a foam tape and finished with a few matching sequins.

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

Next comes Candy Corn stamp set and a night watercolor scene. To start, I die cut a bunch of candy corns using the coordinating Candy Corn die set (so handful for multiple die cutting), stamped all the images with VersaFine Onyx Black ink on a Bristol paper from Strathmore and colored all the elements with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers.

Here’s the complete list of all the colors I used here: n.51 Lemon Yellow – n.50 Yellow – n.52 Bright Yellow – n.70 Orange – n.71 Flesh Colour – n.67 Mustard – n.91 Light Gray

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

For the background I used Framework die, a watercolor paper and regular watercolors. Once dried, I embossed some stars throughout Starfield stencil with a plain white embossing paste and heat embossed the sentiment from the same Candy Corn set with a white embossing powder. Once all the elements were arranged on the card base, I decided to add a cute owl from Boo Hoo set on top of the candy corns stack.

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

Last, but not least we have Boo Hoo stamp set with a super fun and cute ghosts. Using the coordinating Boo Hoo Die Set and Neenah Solar White paper, I die cut a few ghost shapes and speech bubbles.

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

Then I stamped the matching stamps with Memento black ink and colored the images with copic markers.

These are the exact copic markers I used here: T1; Y0000-Y00; RV0000-RV00; 0 (colorless blender).

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

For the background I prepared a scalloped frame using NND Frames & Flags Die Set with a circle window in the center where I added a sort of yellow Moon inking the paper with Fossilized Umber Distress Oxide ink and added on top some bats through just released yesterday Flying Bats stencil.
