Newton's Nook Designs August Release Day 4

Thursday, August 16, 2018


Hello, lovelies!
It's already the final day of the Newton's Nook Designs August Release!
All the new products will be available for purchase tomorrow Friday the 17th in the Newton's Nook Designs Shop! On the last day, we're revealing 3 fabulous stamp sets along with their coordinating die sets!
Let's check them out!



EEEEEEEEEEEEEEK! 💜💛💚
How stinkin' cute is this!?
I could hardly wait to color this fun image!!!


I simply ADORE these new mini sets and look at this super cute set!!!
The sentiment had me giggle, too 😆💛


Boo Hoo!?
Are you kidding me!?
What a fun and adorable mini set this is 💜💛💚
Alright, here is my take...;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Boo Hoo Set - Naki Rager


First up is this adorable pair from the Boo Hoo Set. 
Again, I was my-unusual-self for this release and used these pretty "bold" colors with these small images. Not only that, NO COLORING! I wanted to have fun with funky patterned paper!


Newton's Nook Designs Boo Hoo Set - Naki Rager


But I still kept some "Me-ness" by heat embossing this cute little ghost on vellum ;-) I used the same technique with these adorable little sentiments also to repeat the same look. I used the Xyron Sticker Maker to add adhesive, that mighty little machine is absolutely fabulous with adding adhesive to vellum!


Newton's Nook Designs Boo Hoo Set - Naki Rager


This adorable owl is kind of responsible for all these different looks, actually. As soon as I saw him, I HAD TO paper piece using patterned paper! I chose this one with small patterns in purple and yellow, then added his eyes and tummy in purple, and his beak in yellow. I LOVE how he turned out!


Newton's Nook Designs Boo Hoo Set - Naki Rager


My little wise bird is sitting on this black and white striped branch, which I borrowed from the What A Hoot Die Set ;-) I die cut a circle from this fun yellow with tiny stars paper as the moon ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Candy Corn Set - Naki Rager


Next up is this adorable candy corn card ;-)
As you can see, I used the candy corn colors, it's such a sweet and warm color combo, it seemed perfect!


Newton's Nook Designs Candy Corn Set - Naki Rager


I die cut these cute little candy guys from off-white, yellow, and orange cardstock and paper pieced them and stamped their little smiley faces on them. Are they not the cutest little smiley candies ever!?


Newton's Nook Designs Candy Corn Set - Naki Rager


This super fun sentiment was heat embossed with copper EP on the front panel. I used the Fossilized Amber and Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide Inks to blend on watercolor paper and splattered some water and white ink all over. Yellow twine and a few copper star sequins finish up this super simple card ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Halloween Trio Set - Naki Rager


And last but not least is this spooky cute card with the Halloween Trio Set!
I did the painted scenery background again, it was just screaming for it!!! {LOL}


Newton's Nook Designs Halloween Trio Set - Naki Rager


I stamped this ADORABLE trio on my watercolor paper then had so much fun coloring!!!
I had this simple design of them standing in front of the big, creepy blue moon as soon as I saw this image!
(YES! it's the moon, not an earth!!! I guess I felt pretty ambitious but my watercolor skills weren't as good as I thought they were...LOL) Some grass and creepy purple sky were colored in around my MOON then I splattered a lot of copper ink all over! 


Newton's Nook Designs Halloween Trio Set - Naki Rager


I am totally addicted to sentiment dies so when Jen adds bonus sentiment dies to coordinating die sets, you have no idea how happy that makes! And this one comes with "Trick or treat" AND little bats! I did separate the words by snipping them apart so I could hug the moon with them. 


Newton's Nook Designs Halloween Trio Set - Naki Rager


I have to admit, I am really happy with how this one turned out (even with my earth looking moon...lol)!
To finish up this card, I traced the "BOO" with this shimmery purple marker.

Newton's Nook Designs August Release Day 3

Wednesday, August 15, 2018



Hello, lovelies!
Welcome back to the Newton's Nook Designs August Release!
All the new products will be available for purchase this Friday the 17th in the Newton's Nook Designs Shop!
Today is day 3 of the reveal, I hope you're ready for some Halloween fun!
I LOVE Halloween, it is my favorite holiday of all! So I was super excited to play with the new Hoppy Halloween Set and Flying Bats Stencil! YES! Another stencil 😆💜




EEEEEEK 🐰🎃
"HOPPY" Halloween!?
The name itself was too much for me to handle, but look at these cute bunnies! 😍


And HELLOOOOO!!!
I do love cute Halloween stuff but we have to add some creepiness, right!?
Okay, this stencil isn't really creepy at all, but it's super fun for sure! 😉
Okay, here is my take...;-)



Newton's Nook Designs Hoppy Halloween Set - Naki Rager


I don't know what had gotten into me but this release was all about trying new/different styles/techniques! 
I have always adored make-your-own-background-by-stamping-images-randomly and have tried many, many times, but they always turned out just looking messy!


Newton's Nook Designs Hoppy Halloween Set - Naki Rager


With all these cute little candy images, I just HAD TO give it a try and HA! I was actually pretty happy with how this one turned out! I pretty much blindly stamped them all with Versamark on watercolor paper and surprised myself when I sprinkled white EP! {LOL} I did what I call "sloppy watercolor" on the whole panel and each candy and I simply love it! 



Newton's Nook Designs Hoppy Halloween Set - Naki Rager


I could have made a card without any bunnies, but how could I do that when they're this sweet!!?
I watercolored this mischievous guy digging into a Jack-O-Lantern filled with candies and fussy cut him out. I popped him on tilted with foam tape so it looks like he is tipping over the pumpkin! 


Newton's Nook Designs Hoppy Halloween Set - Naki Rager


I paired this cute bunny sitting in his Jack-O-Lantern with the Flying Bats Stencil ;-)
I foiled using this fun stencil on gray cardstock, aren't these shiny purple bats simply fabulous!?


Newton's Nook Designs Hoppy Halloween Set - Naki Rager


Isn't her ADORABLE!?
He was stamped with Antique Linen Distress Ink on watercolor paper, watercolored, then die cut using the coordinating die set. I LOVE coloring pumpkins 💛 Is that kind of weird!? {LOL}


Newton's Nook Designs Hoppy Halloween Set - Naki Rager


To finish up this card, I made my own sentiment using the Essential Alphabet Die Set, just LOVE this die set 💜 I die cut "BOO" from purple and black cardstock and layered them to give a bit of dimension.

Newton's Nook Designs August Release Day 2

Tuesday, August 14, 2018


Hello, lovelies!
Welcome back to the Newton's Nook Designs August Release!
All the new products will be available for purchase this Friday the 17th in the Newton's Nook Designs Shop!
Today is day 2 of the reveal and we're making dog lovers very happy with this new Fabulous Frenchie Set along with the coordinating die set 💗



I am a total crazy cat lady but that does not mean I don't like dogs!
We had 2 sister German Shepherds and loved them dearly, I just didn't care for the daily walk {LOL}
These little guys are absolutely adorable though! 
Okay, here is my take...;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Fabulous Frenchies Set - Naki Rager


Ooh-La-La 💗
I have NO CLUE if French Bulldogs are from France or not, but I simply couldn't resist it! {Hee Hee}
I adore those cards with painted scenery backgrounds and thought this would be a good one to try it out myself! 


Newton's Nook Designs Fabulous Frenchies Set - Naki Rager


Not only this little guy is super adorable in his cute outfit, but this sentiment is absolutely priceless! 😆💗
I watercolored him and die cut using the coordinating die, but because of the painted background, I didn't like the white outline so decided to fussy cut.


Newton's Nook Designs Fabulous Frenchies Set - Naki Rager


I have Half-French cousins and their families in Paris but have NEVER visited them there! So I googled the Eiffel Tower images and very roughly watercolored this very famous scenery. This lovely Eiffel Tower image from the Newton Dreams of Paris Set (one of my first NND sets to purchase and still love it 💗) was heat embossed with the Distress EP Vintage Photo Rust Effect, I wanted an aged look ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Fabulous Frenchies Set - Naki Rager


My second card with these little cuties is more simple but a lot of fun!
One of my hubby's buddies had this black and white French Bulldog and she was just so cute! I would play with her as long as she wanted, and boy! she had so much energy, I always got tired before she did! {LOL}


Newton's Nook Designs Fabulous Frenchies Set - Naki Rager


I am always more attracted to black/black and white animals like my tuxedo brother cats 💗, but when I hear French Bulldogs, I always think of ones with markings just like this little guy here! He was stamped with light gray ink on watercolor paper, watercolored, and die cut using the coordinating die. He was popped on with foam tape next to this super cute sentiment 💗 Oh, my gosh, his face 💗💗💗


Newton's Nook Designs Fabulous Frenchies Set - Naki Rager


I must admit, I don't like any of the masking techniques...I pretty much suck at them! {LOL}
But I wanted to give him balloons, lots and lots of them too! So I die cut a couple of them from copy paper (cardstock is so thick, I'd have too much gap between each image!) for masking, and just started stamping a whole bunch of them! I purposely didn't ink up the string part after the front row because I thought they might look messy!

Newton's Nook Designs August Release Day 1

Monday, August 13, 2018


Hello, lovelies!
It is time for the Newton's Nook Designs August Release! 
All the new products will be available for purchase this Friday the 17th in the Newton's Nook Designs Shop!
Today is day 1 of the reveal, and we have this adorable set perfect for going back to school! How is summer already almost over!!? 😱😭
Are you ready to check out the new Classy Teachers Set!?



Who else loved the Holding Happiness Set!?
I was so excited to see another set with these girls holding large objects!
And with 4 little kids, back to school sets are always appreciated 💗
Alright, here's my take...;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Classy Teachers Set - Naki Rager


I was going to make a trio of cards, but I do send my kids to school with little teacher gifts on their first day so tags made more sense to this mama! 
All the tags were die cut using the Fancy Edges Tag Die Set.


Newton's Nook Designs Classy Teachers Set - Naki Rager


All my teachers were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on white cardstock and colored in with chameleon markers. I heat embossed the sentiment with white EP and rubbed on perfect pearls all over the tag with my fingertip to give chalkboard effect with shimmer, sewed on the bunting, and my teacher was adhered. 


Newton's Nook Designs Classy Teachers Set - Naki Rager


This one also uses the chalkboard effect, but I used an actual chalk on this one.
I heat embossed the sentiment and those little images with white EP and adhered my teacher with huge books and a little apple on top 🍎


Newton's Nook Designs Classy Teachers Set - Naki Rager


This one is very different from the other 2 tags.
I thought the chalkboard effect with this teacher holding a chalkboard was too much, so I stamped the little images from the set to create my own background. I debated on whether or not to color the images but I really liked it the way it was so here it is 😉


Newton's Nook Designs Classy Teachers Set - Naki Rager


I haven't decided on what to give the new teachers yet, but whatever they are, they will look perfect with these adorable tags!

Wednesday, August 1, 2018



Hello, lovelies!
Oh, boy! Is it really August already!? It's scary how fast time flies! 
So I am up on the Newton's Nook Designs Blog with this fun card today!


Newton's Nook Designs Shark Frenzy Set - Naki Rager


Here I have today is a special card just for "Mr. Jaw-some" 😎
Isn't this absolutely fun!? 


Newton's Nook Designs Shark Frenzy Set - Naki Rager


It seems I cannot stay away from this jaw-some new Shark Frenzy Set! Can you blame me though!? These guys are so fierce! I stamped the image, colored it with pearl watercolors, then fussy cut out only these several guys. I gave a bow tie to the handsome one in the middle AKA: Mr. Jawsome 😉 I borrowed the bow tie and a little heart from the Papa Bear Stamp Set and the Coordinating Die Set. My blue vellum waves were die cut using the Sea Borders Die Set


Newton's Nook Designs Shark Frenzy Set - Naki Rager


This awesome custom made sentiment was die cut using the Essential Alphabet Die Set. 
If you don't have one yet, I strongly recommend it, it is a must-have! 



Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hope you enjoyed it!
Happy August!
