Newton's Nook Designs November Release Day 2

Tuesday, November 20, 2018



Hi, lovelies!
Welcome back to the Newton's Nook Designs November Release!
All the new products will be available for purchase this Friday the 23rd in the Newton's Nook Designs Shop, PLUS there will be Black Friday Sale, too! WOW!!!
On day 2, we are showcasing 2 gorgeous stamp sets along with the coordinating die sets ;-) 



What a beautiful set 💗 
It is called Poinsettia Blooms, they're simply gorgeous, aren't they!?


This beautiful, adorable set is called Winter Birds.  
I thought it was very different from Jen's usual style but she did such an excellent job 💗
I was so looking forward to coloring these cuties!

Alright, here's what I created...;-)


Newton's Nook Designs poinsettia Blooms Set - Naki Rager


For this card with the Poinsettia Blooms Set, I used the classic red, green, and gold ;-) 


Newton's Nook Designs poinsettia Blooms Set - Naki Rager


I heat embossed the poinsettias with gold tinsel EP, watercolored, die cut using the coordinating die set, and added more shimmer with the glitter pen. I just love these clusters of poinsettias, simply gorgeous!


Newton's Nook Designs poinsettia Blooms Set - Naki Rager


I die cut this vellum with white polka dots using the Frames and Flags Die Set, mounted it on gold and white striped paper, and die cut the sentiment using the Holiday Greetings Die Set from poppy cardstock to match the poinsettias. The design itself is pretty simple but the blooms are big and bold, they really didn't need anything but some fun patterns and sparkly sequins ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Winter Birds Set - Naki Rager


My card with the new Winter Birds Set features this adorable Black-Capped Chickadee, which was inspired by this style of Japanese paintings (click HERE to see what I'm talking about). I adore the soft lines, and a lot of white space makes the painting really pop! 


Newton's Nook Designs Winter Birds Set - Naki Rager


I colored all the birds in this set but my favorite is this little chickadee, he's so little and fluffy and puffy, I wish I could cuddle with him! After coloring him, I die cut him using the coordinating die but didn't like the white outline against my natural ivory cardstock so trimmed it off. I used a dollop of Ebony Black Nuvo Crystal Drops for his eye so that it wouldn't disappear in his black feathers. The branch was die cut using the Winter Birds Die Set from distressed Core'dinations cardstock. I added some more snow on the branch and bird using the Snow Maker Marker. 


Newton's Nook Designs Winter Birds Set - Naki Rager


To create this whole winter scene, I used the Petite Snow Stencil and embossing paste for the background. 
And this beautiful sentiment was heat embossed with black EP. I'm really loving this CAS card!

Newton's Nook Designs November Release Day 1

Monday, November 19, 2018


Hellooooo, my loves!
It is time for the Newton's Nook Designs November Release! What!? This year has gone by so fast for me and it is absolutely crazy that we'll be celebrating Thanksgiving this week! 
All the new products will be available for purchase this Friday the 23rd in the Newton's Nook Designs Shop, AND there will be Black Friday Sale going too! Woo Hoo! But first, let us give you sneak peeks of the new goodies ;-) Today is day one and we're showcasing 3 new stamp sets, 2 of them with the coordinating die set, and 2 super awesome stencil sets! Ready!?



This fun 3"x4" stamp set is called Christmas Haul.
These sentiments are so fun, I simply adore this cute set!


Then we have the Moose Mountain Set!
Ohmygoodness, I am completely in LOVE with these super cool dudes!
Not only they're adorable, but they're also snowboarders!!! 


This one is called Snowman Advice.
I totally LOVE these little quote stamp sets and this one didn't disappoint me!
The whole quote is so cute but my favorite line is "Avoid Meltdowns" 😆


Jen's stencils are always unique and I get so excited every time she comes up with new designs, but these new stencil sets simply blew my mind!!! This set makes your own argyle patterns! You can use any colors or medium you want, and possibilities are endless!!!


This set makes plaid patterns, who doesn't like plaid!?
But what's really cool about these new stencil sets is that you can use only one of them to create a very unique pattern, too! Seriously, are they not the MOST AWESOME things ever!?

Alright, let's see what I created...;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Christmas Haul Set - Naki Rager


The color scheme for this card was inspired by the sentiments "Tis the season to be fabulous". Black and gold are definitely festive AND fabulous ;-) 


Newton's Nook Designs Christmas Haul Set - Naki Rager


I still used the traditional red and green Christmas colors but used shimmery watercolor ;-) She was die cut out using the coordinating die set. It was popped on another die cut piece to give a shadow behind her. 


Newton's Nook Designs Christmas Haul Set - Naki Rager


Even though this card was inspired by another sentiment, I decided to use this one because I think it is so stinkin' cute! It was heat embossed with gold EP on black cardstock, which was die cut using the Framework Die Set ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Christmas Haul Set - Naki Rager


I created this black buffalo plaid using only one of the stencils from the new Plaid Stencil Set, but it kind of disappeared on my white basecard so I used the other stencil with gold ink to break it down ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Moose Mountain Set - Naki Rager


I just had to make a slider with this totally awesome snowboarding moose doing his little trick!
I used to snowboard (probably can't even slide down if I tried now...LOL) and my friends back then and I used to watch these videos of professional snowboarders doing insane tricks! I was obviously inspired by that ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Moose Mountain Set - Naki Rager


These professionals would jump and grab their boards just like this adorable moose is doing, and they literally fly across the sky!!! I could never ever do that, wouldn't even think to try!!! {LOL} So this cutie was watercolored and die cut using the coordinating die. I added some Glossy Accents to his goggles. 


Newton's Nook Designs Moose Mountain Set - Naki Rager


This sentiment is so cute! 
"Make the moose (most) out of life"
I think this fun moose is doing exactly that! I love it!!!


Newton's Nook Designs Snowman Adovice Set - Naki Rager


For this card, the focal point had to be the quote from the new Snowman Advice set ;-) 
I thought it'd be fun to pair it with bright poppy and lime green plaid, which was created using the new Plaid Stencil Set ;-)  


Newton's Nook Designs Snowman Adovice Set - Naki Rager


I wanted an icy feel so I heat embossed the quote and snowflakes with snowflake EP on light blue vellum, which was die cut using the Frames and Flags Die Set. The way the glitter in this EP glows totally reminds me of how snow reflects the sun, it's so pretty!


Newton's Nook Designs Snowman Adovice Set - Naki Rager


I matched the snowmen's ear muffs and scarves to my fun poppy/lime plaid, and after fussy cutting them, I popped them onto the distressed gray Core'dinations cardstock. They're so stinkin' cute, aren't they!? 💚💗

Newton's Nook Designs & therm-o-web Inspiration Week

Wednesday, November 7, 2018


Hello,, my friends!
This week Newton's Nook Designs and Therm-O-Web are partnering for a fabulous inspiration week! All week long both design teams will be sharing ways to add fun foils and more to your cards using Therm-O-Web products with Newton's Nook Designs stamps! There are prizes too! Read all the way to the end of this post to find out how you can win!



Newton's Nook Designs x Therm-O-Web - Naki Rager


So I made 2 totally different cards today!


Newton's Nook Designs Fox Hollow Set - Naki Rager


Therm-O-Web let us pick some of their fabulous products to play with for this week's collaboration (thank you so much! 💕) and this Brutus Monroe Designer Toner Sheets-Distress Circles was the first item I chose! These toner sheets are acetate sheets with designs printed with toner, and all you need to do is run it through a laminator with a deco foil sheet on top. I foiled this one with Silver Deco Foil Transfer Sheet to make it look like snow ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Fox Hollow Set - Naki Rager


This beautiful fox couple image is from the Fox Hollow Set, one of my all-time favorites 💛 
It was stamped with Light Gray Archival Ink on watercolor paper, I did what I call "sloppy watercoloring" meaning I basically threw colors on the image and didn't care if I went outside the lines ;-) It gives this imperfect and very soft look and I simply love it! When it was all nice and dry, I die cut it with the Coordinating Die Set. 


Newton's Nook Designs Fox Hollow Set - Naki Rager


I stamped this sweet little sentiment with blue inks to match the fox's scarf, but the blue I used wasn't even close to the scarf {LOL}, so I stamped it again with a different hue BUT only about 1/3 of the sentiment to give an ombre-ish finish. 


Newton's Nook Designs Fox Hollow Set - Naki Rager


I adhered the Iridescent Deco Foil Transfer Sheets on white cardstock and die cut 2 pieces of hills using the Land Borders Die Set. Then I also die cut some birch trees and pine trees using the Forest Scene Builder Die Set, mounted everything (except the lower hill piece) right on the base card, added my distress circle toner sheet, then the hill and the fox couple. 


Newton's Nook Designs Ornamental Wishes Set - Naki Rager


This card was put together fairly quickly because I used leftover pieces from the previous projects ;-)
This gorgeous red foil background is the negative piece from THIS CARD. For this card, this piece was only slightly bigger than A2 size so I trimmed off 1/8" from 1 horizontal side and 1 vertical side, wrapped the excess over on the back and just taped the 4 sides with scotch tape. It was kind of like wrapping a present with a fancy wrapping paper! ;-)  


Newton's Nook Designs Ornamental Wishes Set - Naki Rager


I had this sentiment from the Ornamental Wishes Set heat embossed with gold EP on acetate sheet that was die cut using the Ornament Shaker Die Set, I made this for the October Release but ended up not using it. The acetate by itself on the foiled background made the sentiment hard to see so I die cut another ornament from this jade cardstock and tucked it behind the acetate sheet. Isn't the jade beautiful against the red!? 


Newton's Nook Designs Ornamental Wishes Set - Naki Rager


My pretty little bow was made with the Gina K. Designs Gingham Fancy Ribbon, I just LOVE this gorgeous ribbon! I also used the Gina K. Designs Premium Cardstock Luxury White on both of my cards today. They're really really smooth, I bet they're perfect for coloring, too!   

There are more amazing projects today over on the Therm O Web blog so pop over there for more inspiration!

25 Days of Christmas Tags with Newton's Nook Designs 2018

Monday, November 5, 2018


Image may contain: text
Happy Monday, my friends!
Today the Newton's Nook Designs Design Team is joining the 25 Days of Christmas Tags Blog Hop hosted by fabulous Tracey McNeely! She organizes this fun hop every year and so many fabulous companies sponsor this and offer fabulous prizes, so head over to Tracey's blog In My Creative Opinion and check out the details ;-)

Alright, here is what I created...;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Christmas Tags - Naki Rager


I made 5 of these CAS tags ;-)
I've been attracted to the white-on-white-with-a-pop-of-red-look lately, I think it is so fun!
Ready to take a closer look at them!?


Newton's Nook Designs Forest Builder & Holiday Greetings Die Sets - Naki Rager


All my tags today were die cut using the Fancy Edges Tags Die Set, it measures about 2-3/8" x 3-3/4".
This one was decorated with 3 short pine trees, which was die cut using the Forest Scene Builder Die Set, Merry sentiment die cut from poppy cardstock using the Holiday Greetings Die Set, and snowfalls using the Petite Snow Stencil and embossing paste. 


Newton's Nook Designs Pines & Holly Die Set - Naki Rager


My second tag is all about holly jolly!
The background was created using the Holiday Foliage Stencil and embossing paste, I just love the white paste on white cardstock! The holly leaves were die cut from white cardstock to continue the white-on-white theme, then the berries were die cut from poppy cardstock, both using the Pines & Holly Die Set. 


Newton's Nook Designs Snow Globe Shaker & Splendid Stags Die Sets - Naki Rager


Now onto my third tag, you're getting the pattern here, aren't you!?
First using the Tree Rings Stencil and embossing paste for the white-on-white background, then the stag was die cut from white cardstock using the Splendid Stags Die Set, the Joy sentiment was die cut from white and poppy cardstock using the Snow Globe Shaker Die Set. All the pieces were die cut twice to layer to give some dimension ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Ornament Shaker Die Set - Naki Rager


This pair of tags were basically 2 for 1 ;-)
I picked from dark red to peachy pink to create the ombre effect. Each color was trimmed to about 3/4" wide and die cut "HO HO HO" using the Ornament Die Set. I separated the words out of the strips and simply adhered them onto one of the tags. I also added a couple of birds and a squirrel from the Forest Scene Builder Die Set. On the other tag, I mounted the strips and little circles from the letter Os. Aren't they super easy but super fun!?  


Newton's Nook Designs Christmas Tags - Naki Rager


If you are planning on making Christmas tags to go with every present to your loved ones, simple designs like these would be perfect! The pop of red on all white designs are pretty dramatic, don't you think!? And when you use negative die cut pieces, you create less waste AND you instantly have 2 tags made! 



Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hope you enjoyed my CAS tags today!
Don't forget to visit Tracey's blog In My Creative Opinion for a chance to win one of the fabulous prizes!

Happy Halloween 🎃
It is my absolute favorite holiday today and I am up on the Newton's Nook Designs Blog with a Halloween card!


Newton's Nook Designs Halloween Trio Die Set - Naki Rager


Trick or Treat!
Who is going to go trick or treating with your little ones tonight!?
I made this cute little circle card with fun Halloween colors ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Halloween Trio Die Set - Naki Rager


This fun sentiment and the little bats were die cut using the Halloween Trio Die Set.
The sentiment was die cut from white cardstock and colored with colored pencils, then coated with the glitter pen for some serious sparkles. I mounted it slightly off-centered on another sentiment die cut from black cardstock to give a little dimension.


Newton's Nook Designs Halloween Trio Die Set - Naki Rager


I used the Flying Bats Stencil to sponge with light purple on the purple cardstock. I wanted a fun but subtle background and tone-on-tone does that trick ;-) Then these fabulous little bats were adhered and coated with the glitter pen to match the sentiment ;-) 



That's it!
I hope you liked my card today ;-)
CAS designs actually take me a lot longer to design, but this one came together pretty quickly thanks to all the fun NND products! 


Newton's Nook Designs Holiday Release Day 4

Thursday, October 18, 2018

Hey, Newton lovers!
today is already the last day of the Newton's Nook Designs Holiday Release!
All the new products you've seen this week will be available for purchase tomorrow Friday the 19th in the Newton's Nook Designs Shop! We have 4 more stamp sets along with the coordinating die sets so let's get started!



First up is this adorable set "Slothy Christmas"
Oh my goodness, can you even stand how cute they are!?

Then we have the Happy Howl-idays set 💙
These pups are so stinkin' cute!!!

Hee Hee 😆
Here is our favorite mini stamp set and this one is called Mistle Toad 🐸
I just love these cute little images with punny sentiments!

Another mini set called Fleece Navidad, hee hee 😝
This little guy is so cute!

Alright, I have a lot of cards to show you today so let's go!


Newton's Nook Designs Slothy Christmas Set - Naki Rager


This sleepyhead here is totally me on Christmas day! [LOL] except he is absolutely adorable doing it! 


Newton's Nook Designs Slothy Christmas Set - Naki Rager


I gave my little sleepyhead a nice Christmas tree using the new Evergreens Stencil and a couple shades of green Distress Oxide inks. An enamel star and a few enamel dots were popped on as ornaments ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Slothy Christmas Set - Naki Rager


This sleepy cutie was stamped with light gray ink on watercolor paper, watercolored, and die cut using the coordinating die. The sentiment was heat embossed with copper EP to match the copper ink splatters on the background. I think this card turned out to be so cute and very peaceful ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Slothy Christmas Set - Naki Rager


I had to make another card with this adorable card!
I die cut the pine trees from white linen cardstock using the Forest Scene Builder and placed them on my base card, then added some snow using the new Petite Snow Stencil and white embossing paste. 


Newton's Nook Designs Slothy Christmas Set - Naki Rager


This little guy got himself a giant candy cane to hang from!
I colored the candy cane and his hat with lime green and white pearl watercolor ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Slothy Christmas Set - Naki Rager


This sentiment was heat embossed with lime green EP on vellum then it was die cut using the Frames and Flags, which was set on top of the shaker window. The Frame of the shaker window was created using the Framework Die Set. 


Newton's Nook Designs Happy Howl-idays Set - Naki Rager


The design of this card is pretty simple, but this super adorable retriever couple image is actually a pretty good size so instead of making a scene, framing them seemed like a better idea ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Happy Howl-idays Set - Naki Rager


The scalloped frame and 2 little tickets were die cut using the Framework Die Set.
"Ho Ho Ho" confetti are from the new Ornament Shaker Die Set.


Newton's Nook Designs Mistle Toad Set - Naki Rager


Here we have is a card with the new Mistle Toad set ;-) How cute is he!?


Newton's Nook Designs Mistle Toad Set - Naki Rager


When you hear/see mistletoes, you think of a kiss, don't you? Plus the frog prince story so custom making the KISS ME sentiment seemed most appropriate for this fun card ;-) I was die cut using the Essential Alphabet Die Set, and the little banner was die cut using the Frames and Flags Die Set. 


Newton's Nook Designs Fleece Navidad Set - Naki Rager


Our last stamp set to reveal is this little sheep ;-)
These fluffy little guys provide us with warm wool so we can have soft cozy sweaters and scarves for cold winter, so I thought using the sweater inspired patterned papers was perfect ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Fleece Navidad Set - Naki Rager


Those little trees and the star are from the new Ornament Shaker Die Set, such an awesome die set!
 The fun patterns make my black and white sheep really pop ;-)
