Monday, September 26, 2016



Hello lovelies, Happy Monday!
Today is the release day of the Newton's Nook Designs Stamp/die sets exclusively designed for STAMPtember over at Simon Says Stamp and the NND design team is joining in the fun! Whoo hoo!!!
Jennifer outdid herself again and designed this super cute, super fun fall set called "Bushels of Love".



Are you loving this as much as I am!!?
All the critters are so adorable, and just waiting to be colored in!
Okay, here is my take...;-)


Newton's Nook Designs STAMPtember Bushels of Love Set - Naki Rager


Of course I had to use pretty fall colors with this set!
And I used a ton of them ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs STAMPtember Bushels of Love Set - Naki Rager


Gosh, this raccoon is just so stinkin' cute!!!
He was stamped with Memento Black Ink, colored in with the Spectrum Noir Markers, then die cut with the coordinating die. 
He was popped on my layers of fall patterned papers and a snippet of yellow ribbon. Some copper thread was also added for some texture. 


Newton's Nook Designs STAMPtember Bushels of Love Set - Naki Rager


This sentiment is just so cute!
I die cut this maple leaf from the Beautiful Leaves Die Set, and heat embossed the sentiment on it. Another leaf was die cut from the Tangerine Tango cardstock and designer vellum, and they were sewn together.

Hello there lovelies!
It is time for another Cupcake Inspirations Challenge!
This week's sponsor is Gerda Steiner Designs!





Isn't this such a fun photo!!?
So who's ready to party with us!!?




Lots of colors, lots of patterns, 'cause it's party time!!!




I just got this stamp set "Eat Cake & Celebrate" from Concord & 9th, it is just lovely!
What party doesn't have a cake!? The image was stamped with Smoky Slate Ink, which was pulled from the patterned paper I used, then colored with the Spectrum Noir Markers.




I just LOVE this fabulous font, I decided to use all the sentiments from the set!
They was heat embossed with Tangerine Tango on the Pool Party cardstock, again these colors were pulled from the patterned paper.




It looks a bit lonely leaving all that white so I stamped this cute cluster of stars in So Saffron and Smoky Gray, then a few star confetti were sprinkled.

Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Perfect Pumpkin Set - Naki Rager


I made a shaker card with those fun little Halloween confetti!


Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Perfect Pumpkin Set - Naki Rager


My black kitty is ready for Halloween with her witch hat and pumpkin!
She was stamped with Memento Ink then colored in with the Spectrum Noir Markers.


Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Perfect Pumpkin Set - Naki Rager


I heat embossed 4 little spiderwebs, one with a spider creeping down, on vellum.
The Boo sentiment was die cut in black and orange then got prettied up with the glitter pen. This is actually a pretty simple design but definitely a lot of fun with the confetti and chevron!

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Friday, September 23, 2016


Hi there, happy Friday!
Amy Tsuruta's famous Coffee Lovers Blog Hop starts today and Newton's Nook Designs is one of the sponsors! Yay Jen!
I am joining in the fun as one of the NND DT members ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Naughty Newton Set - Naki Rager


I must confess.....
This is one of my favorite cards I have created! *Hee Hee*


Newton's Nook Designs Naughty Newton Set - Naki Rager


I was going through my Newton stash, and this naughty kitty caught my eyes.
I really don't know why but I decided to make a bag of coffee beans and have this naughty kitty knock it over. This coffee bag is my most favorite part of this card! *giggle* I used one of the wreaths from the Happy Little Thoughts, stamped the little beans from the Newton Loves Coffee set, and handwritten "Newton Blend" with the white gel pen. 


Newton's Nook Designs Naughty Newton Set - Naki Rager


This sentiment is also from the Newton Loves Coffee set, but I replaced the meow part with this meow die from the Newton Unwinds Purr-fect Die set


Newton's Nook Designs Naughty Newton Set - Naki Rager


Yes, those are real coffee beans! (my craft room smelled SO GOOD making this card!)
My husband and I are both addicted to coffee, and we buy coffee beans and grind them ourselves at home. So I took a handful, and look at this fun card! 
LOVE IT!!!
