I hope this is sweet enough for you! ;-)

As you can see, this set offers you so many sweet treats and sweet sentiments!
This cute sentiment in such a lovely font is my fave!
I heat embossed it (surprise! lol) in white on watercolor paper, water colored over the sentiment, then tore it to make my own cake ;-)
I topped it with little kiss chocolate, how cute are they!!? All I needed to do was die cut them from brown cardstock then covered them with the Glossy Accent.

This lovely cake stand was heat embossed and water colored in Pool Party, then die cut. I just love how easy it is to create something when there are coordinating dies!

Newton's Nook Designs January Release Day 1 - Woodland Duos

Monday, January 16, 2017


Hello lovelies, Happy New Year!
I am here today with the Newton's Nook Designs January Release! Woo hoo!
We are sharing this adorable stamp set called Woodland Duos on day1!
This is a sequel of the Darling Duos set, it was released with the coordinating die set Darling Hearts Purr-fect Die, which also coordinates this new set revealed today! 
Well, naturally ;-)




Ohmygoodness!
Can you even stand how cute it is!!?
When I first saw this, it made me squeal because the Darling Duos set is one of my faves!
Alright, here is my take...;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Woodland Duos Set - Naki Rager


This owl couple is just too sweet and perfect for Valentine's Day, isn't it!?
They can even be a daddy and his little girl...LOVE it!


Newton's Nook Designs Woodland Duos Set - Naki Rager


I heat embossed this lovely image with light gold then water colored. It was die cut with the coordinating die Darling Hearts. I also water colored another piece of watercolor paper, heat embossed this cute sentiment in white, and die cut another heart.

I die cut one of the arrows from the Points & Plumes Purr-fect Die set, chopped in half then pierced it through the pink heart. I also die cut the feathers from the same set from this teal vellum as they fell from my teal owl. 
Since this is a Valentine's Day card, I mounted my sweet hearts on a paper doily, then on a vellum with gold hearts ;-) Is this sweet enough for you!?

Happy New Year!

Saturday, December 31, 2016



Hi there lovelies!
Can you believe today is the last day of the year 2016!!?
It was such a fun year being on the Newton's Nook Design DT, and I get to start the new year as one of the DT member again! So exciting!




New year's day is the biggest celebration in Japan, and it is so very totally different from how it is celebrated here. I left Japan after graduating from high school and wow! that was 20 years ago now!!! So to me now, new year is watching Times Square on TV, and that is exactly what I have made here!




I used the building images from the Newton Dreams of New York set! 
They were heat embossed with clear emboss powder on gray cardstock then die cut with the Newton Dreams of New York Purr-fect die set.




I love fireworks, so that was my first inspiration for this card.
The night sky was created with blue, green, yellow and black Distressed Ink. Of course I had to splatter some water. I also sprayed some white and gold ink all over the panel. It was quite messy bit so fun! 
I wasn't sure how to draw fireworks, but I googled some images and there they are! The big, colorful one was drawn with my Kuretake Gansai Watercolor set that I received from my bestie in Japan (who has been my bestie since we were 16! Wow!), and zig Clean Color Brush set. What do you think?


I hope you all have a beautiful year filled with fun, laughter, some tears, and lots and lots of ink on your hands! To help you with that, Newton's Nook Designs is having a New Year Sale for 3 days starting today! Woo Hoo! So make sure you head over to the Shop!




Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hope you enjoyed it!
Happy New Year lovelies!!!

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 388

Sunday, December 11, 2016

Hello lovelies, Happy Sunday!
Welcome to the final Cupcake Inspirations Challenge of the year!
Can you believe that 2016 is almost over!!?
We will be taking a 2 week break, so you have 3 long weeks to create and link up your beautiful projects! 
This week's sponsor is Craft Classes Online!





Fabulous job Nina, for picking such a gorgeous color combo!
Not to mention such a beautiful cupcake!
Here is my take...;-)




I love how the cupcake has a ton of cream frosting with little gold and poppy, so I was very  much inspired by that!




I started with die cutting this gorgeous greenery cutaway from Winnie & Walter, one from Very Vanilla with the solid base die, another from gold foil sheet with the outline die. I then die cut this fun, bold noel sentiment from red foil sheet once, and from Very Vanilla 6 times! 




I smeared the gold ink pad onto a piece of window sheet then sprayed some rubbing alcohol on it, then used a paint brush to make all those splatters. I adhered the white and red diagonal Striped washi tape on the right side of my base, mounted my main panel and assembled the rest. I was going to add a few gold star confetti but instead, I added some red and clear flowers right onto my wreath, isn't it pretty!?



{ my notes }

Paper: Very Vanilla, Red and Gold Foil Sheets (SU!)
Ink: Encore Gold Ink, Rubbing Alcohol
Accessory: Sweetheart Mix Flower Sequins (Paper Sweeties), Red and White Striped Washi Tape (3M)
Tool: In a Word:Noel and In Bloom:Paulina's Greenery Cutaways (Winnie & Walter)



Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hope you enjoyed it!
We will be back in 3 week, have a lovely holiday everyone! ;-)
