Newton's Nook Desgins November Release Day 1

Monday, November 11, 2019


Hello, lovelies!
It is time for the Newton's Nook Designs November Release!!!
All the new products will be available for purchase this Friday the 15th in the Newton's Nook Designs Shop ;-) 
Today is day 1 and we're revealing this adorable stamp set!




Woo Hoo!
The Snowman Party is another addition to the NND Square Card Front series and I am so excited!
Here is my take...;-)

Newton's Nook Designs Snowman Party Set - Naki Rager


So just like the other Square Card Front Stamps, this adorable image fits inside the Frames Squared Die Set. 


Newton's Nook Designs Snowman Party Set - Naki Rager


This adorable image was heat embossed with white EP on watercolor paper. 
First, I colored the background inside and outside of the square with this very light aqua color. Then I took my time and very carefully colored all the little carrot noses and hats and scarves, well, everything! Then I colored the snowmen with pearl white to give the shimmery look.

All the little sentiments that come in the set can fit right in the center of the image.
I heat embossed this one with white EP then colored inside the word cool with the same pearl white.

Once it was all dry and safe to run through my die cutting machine, I die cut the panel with the scalloped square from the Frames Squared Die Set. Then, because their eyes were white and you really couldn't see them, I added black Nuvo Crystal Drops. Some iridescent snowflake confetti were sprinkled as a finishing touch and done!

I made this gift card holder and decorated the front by heat embossing the Snowman Party Stamp with light blue EP. I even borrowed the teeny "to:" and "from:" from the Joyful Tags Stamp Set.

I made this 3-1/2" square envelope using the Envelope Punch Board.

I had no clue how it should close {LOL} so the easiest way I could think of was to pop on something using foam tape on one side and tuck in the other side under it. I already had the Joyful Tags Set out so I heat embossed this adorable circular tag with white EP and die cut it with the coordinating circular tag die from the Tags Times Two Die Set.

Here's the inside, I created a little pocket to hold a gift card with vellum, then decorated that with part of the Snowman Party Stamp, which was heat embossed with the same light blue EP and fussy cut. After debating with myself, I decided not to color these guys because I love the front panel not colored, so I wanted to keep the same look.

You could do this with any of the NND Square Card Front Stamps for any occasion! 
Or you can even decorate gift boxes or gift bags, well, pretty much everything!

Foiled Merry Christmas

Friday, November 8, 2019

Happy Friday, lovelies!
Today I am sharing a Christmas card that I made with some of the Therm-O-Web goodies I received!




I love these big beautiful poinsettias from the Therm-O-Web Gina K. Designs Stamp n' Stencil Wishing You Joy Set! 




I heat embossed the flower image with red EP on white cardstock and die cut them using the coordinating die set, then applied the white parts of the poinsettias using the Detail Stencil and Deco Foil Transfer Gel. Once the gel was completely dry, I ran them through my laminator with the Deco Foil Iridescent Transfer Sheets. The bonus here was I guess some of the sparkles stuck to the embossing powder so the pedals were lightly foiled as well! Isn't it pretty!!? Happy accident 💙




This gorgeous sentiment was heat embossed with gold EP on a strip of vellum along with some diamond/argyle in white. 




These leaves were die cut from green cardstock using the TOW Gina K. Stamp n' Stencil Wishing You Joy Die Set and applied the veins using the Detail Stencil and Deco Foil Transfer Gel. Once the gel was dry, they were run through the laminator with the Deco Foil Emerald Green Flocks Transfer Sheets. I LOVE the fuzziness! It also gives great dimension and texture, it is so fun!




I kept the background simple with light blue ink and some gold splatters so that the flowers really popped! Several gold sequins were sprinkled and done! I love how this card turned out!



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

Rain or Shine Card for Newton's Nook Designs

Thursday, November 7, 2019


Hello, lovelies!
I am up on the Newton's Nook Designs Blog with this sweet encouragement card today!


Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Rainy Day Set - Naki Rager


The Newton's Rainy Day Stamp Set is perfect for cheering up someone 💙
It is one of my all-time-favorites, I just find these 2 sweet pals sharing an umbrella so adorable 💙 


Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Rainy Day Set - Naki Rager


I mean, look at this sweet image! Doesn't it put a big smile on your face!!?
So I stamped this sweet image on watercolor paper and did some no-line watercoloring as always, then it was die cut using the coordinating die set. I colored this kitty like Newton to honor him, and Jen and Jeff. This boy will live on as Jen's adorable stamps and keep on traveling the world, trying new things, and getting in trouble sometimes 😽💕

I like extra little stamps such as these raindrops, which comes in the Newton's Rainy Day Stamp Set. They can be used for a little accent, or create a whole background. I blended a couple of Distress Oxide Inks to make a cloudy sky then stamped this little image all over the front panel. I then colored in the inside of them with white and added Nuvo Crystal Drops for some shine and dimension.  


Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Rainy Day Set - Naki Rager


I die cut a big puffy cloud from vellum using the Sky Borders Die Set and mounted on the top of the front panel. I like to use vellum because it's subtle, and doesn't interrupt the scene you've created. I'm really happy with how this card turned out, and hopefully, my recipient will love it as much as I do 💙 


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



Autumn Wishes with Therm-O-Web

Friday, November 1, 2019

Hello, lovelies, Happy November!
I received this package from Therm-O-Web (thank you, Julie!!!) and it was filled with their fabulous new release products! So right away, I opened it up and got creative with them, and here is my first card ;-)



This autumn card was created using the TOW Gina K. Designs Stamp n' Stencil autumn Wishes Set. This beautiful stamp set coordinates with the Coordinating Die Set, and the Detail Stancil for foiling! 




I heat embossed the tall and skinny tree image with Ranger Distress Embossing Powder in Vintage Photo on the watercolor panel. And using the Autumn Wishes Detailed Stencil and Deco Foil Transfer Gel to add these tiny leaves onto the trees. Once the Transfer Gel was dried, I added the leaves using the Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets in Sunshine Yellow and Orange Glow




Between the 2 trees, I stamped this beautiful sentiment with Versamark Ink then heat embossed with red EP. I die cut these little birds from the Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets in Sunshine Yellow using 2 of the tiny bird dies from the Newton's Nook Designs Forest Scene Builder Die Set. 



I also die cut this little "squirrell" using the squirrel die from the NND Forest Scene Builder Die Set, but I added black and white lines to turn him into a chipmunk ;-)
The background was blended with Distress Oxide Inks then some water and copper ink were splattered all over. 



Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hope you enjoyed it!
I will be back with more TOW projects to share!



Trick or Treat!

Wednesday, October 30, 2019


Hello, lovelies!
Tomorrow is already Halloween so I figured I'd make one more Halloween card and share it on the Newton's Nook Designs Blog today!


Newton's Nook Designs Once Upon A Princess + Knight's Quest Sets - Naki Rager


I was inspired by my twins to create today's trick or treating card ;-)
My twin girl Terra is all about princesses and glitters so this year, she is going to be Cinderella. Then her twin brother Kaius wanted to be her prince! How stinkin' cute is that!!?


Newton's Nook Designs Once Upon A Princess + Knight's Quest Sets - Naki Rager


 So I colored this little knight from the Knight's Quest Set and this little princess from the Once Upon A Princess Set. My little princess is holding a purple pumpkin bucket for her treats, which was borrowed from the Dress Up Doxies Set ;-) All the images were watercolored then die cut with their coordinating die sets, Knight's Quest Die Set, Once Upon A Princess Die Set, and Dress Up Doxies Die Set. 


Newton's Nook Designs Once Upon A Princess + Knight's Quest Sets - Naki Rager


This awesome little sentiment die is from the Halloween Trio Die Set.
It was die cut from watercolor paper, colored with orange, yellow, and purple. Then some shimmer was applied with the clear glitter pen. I also splattered some shimmery black ink. 


Newton's Nook Designs Once Upon A Princess + Knight's Quest Sets - Naki Rager


This spooky haunted mansion and a row of tombstones (not in this photo) from the Spooky Street Set were heat embossed with black glitter EP on vellum, were fussy cut, then the light green Nuvo Crystal Drop was applied to the windows. 


Newton's Nook Designs Once Upon A Princess + Knight's Quest Sets - Naki Rager


To create this full moon, I used the Bokeh Stencil Set as a templet.
This is another reason I LOVE the NND Stencil line!


Newton's Nook Designs Once Upon A Princess + Knight's Quest Sets - Naki Rager


The background was created with Distress Oxide Inks and splatters of some water and shimmery gray ink. I added a few bats that were die cut using the little bat dies from the Halloween Trio Die Set to finish up this cute but spooky card ;-)


Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hope you enjoyed it!
Have a safe and happy Halloween 🎃👻🍭
