Hello, lovelies!
I am up on the Newton's Nook Designs Blog with a little Thanksgiving project today ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Raccoon Rascals Set - Naki Rager


Now that Halloween is over, it's all about Thanksgiving!
I give my mother-in-law and her sister a little something as thanks every year (and because they cook the meal and I don't! LOL), I usually make little tags to go with ;-)
I used 3 NND stamp sets, and the beautiful sentiment that was heat embossed with copper embossing powder is from the Shades of Autumn set.

These mischievous raccoons from the Raccoon Rascals set are just perfect for my big family! (I have 4 kids.) I stamped this trio of cuties with Memento Black Ink and colored with my new toy, Chameleon Markers! I colored them as they're wearing masks, and I also gave them little feathers that I borrowed from the Adventure Awaits set in the matching colors. They're totally in a Thanksgiving spirit already!

This sentiment is also from the Raccoon Rascals set. It was heat embossed with copper embossing powder on yellow vellum, and die cut with the Tags Times Two die. It was added to the hemp twine, which is tying the green, orange, and yellow ribbons, they match the raccoons' masks and feathers ;-)



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

Have a lovely day ;-)


Frantic Stamper November Release - Love and Music

Wednesday, November 8, 2017




Hello, lovelies!
I am here today with my first card with the November Release from Frantic Stamper ;-)
This new release is about Love and Music, how fun!




I absolutely love this elegant ballerina 💖
I die cut the Music Ribbon Die (10294) from light gray cardstock and adhered on my front panel, which I had a slider out. I die cut the Ballerina En Pointe (10299) from pale pink cardstock and she was placed in the slider with foam tape so she can dance on the music ribbon ;-)




I die cut one of the sentiments from the Dance Rock Sing die set (10355) from white cardstock and light gray cardstock and placed them above the slider. As my ballerina dances across the card, you can see them all one by one ;-)



Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hope you enjoyed it!
I'll be back with more cards!



25 Days of Christmas Tags

Thursday, November 2, 2017


Hello, lovelies!
I am so very excited to be joining this wonderful blog hop { 25 Days of Christmas Tags } by Tracey McNeely (click HERE to check out her fabulous blog!) as a Newton's Nook Designs Design Team member today! Jen is sponsoring this fun event along with many other companies, and they all have fabulous prizes! So make sure you head over to Tracey's blog and read the rules to participate!

Here is my take...;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Santa Paws Newton Set - Naki Rager


I used a few NND products to create these small but fun tags ;-)
I die cut the bigger tags with the Tags Times Two Die Set from the plastic bag that stamp/die sets come in (I can't throw them out! LOL), sewed it together except the top, poured in this mixture of gold, silver, and clear confetti, copper star sequins, and a few snowflakes, which were die cut with the Snow Globe Shaker Die Set from shimmery white cardstock. 


Newton's Nook Designs Snow Globe Scenes Set - Naki Rager


I also die cut the round tag with the Tags Times Two Die Set from kraft cardstock.
On this one, I stamped this cute little reindeer from the Snow Globe Scenes set with brown ink, quickly colored with colored pencils, and added a little bit of metallic copper Nuvo crystal Drop on his nose ;-)

On second one, I stamped this adorable snowman also from the Snow Globe Scenes set, colored with colored pencils, and added light blue Nuvo crystal drop on his buttons ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Santa Paws Newton Set - Naki Rager


On third one, I stamped this adorable mouse from the Santa Paws Newton set, colored with colored pencils, and glossy white Nuvo crystal drop on his pom pom ;-) I added a copper star sequin on each tag, and this little cutie is making a wish upon it. Maybe it is the same star as the reindeer and snowman see...;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Santa Paws Newton Set - Naki Rager


A snippet of linen twine along with a few snippets of copper thread were fed through the holes to keep both tags together on each set. I also die cut the sentiment from the Snow Globe Shaker Die Set from copper foil sheet and stapled them on my clear tags ;-)



Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hope you enjoyed it, I certainly did!

Thank you Tracey for having me, and thank you Jen for sponsoring this fabulous event!



Frantic Stamper Winter Release

Tuesday, October 31, 2017




Hello, lovelies!
Happy Halloween to those who celebrate it!
My kids can hardly wait to go trick or treating tonight, and I'm ever so patiently waiting to see them in their costumes!
Anyway, I have one more project with the Frantic Stamper Holiday Release today ;-)




I LOVE kraft with white, especially when I make winter cards :-)




This beautiful snowflake die is called Alpine Snow Flake (10337), I die cut once out of my front panel to create a window, then another one from white cardstock. I added mint sequins and clear bead seeds inside, then adhered the white snowflake on the window sheet, then applied clear glitter pen. It got a bit messy though...{oops}




I die cut the Elegant Winter from white and mint cardstock, and mounted them on top of each other slightly off so the colors show. I heat embossed the wishes on mint and popped it on with foam tape. 



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




Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 429

Sunday, October 29, 2017



Hello, my lovelies!
This week, Newton's Nook Design is sponsoring the fun and awesome Cupcake Inspirations Challenge! I've missed the CIC, their fabulous color and fun theme challenges inspired me every week when I was on their DT! I wish I could make time to play along but man! why do kids take so much of your time and attention!!? {LOL}




This week is a color challenge, and look at these beautiful fall colors!
Of course the cute pumpkin cupcake image is fun and so inspiring as well ;-)
Alright, here is my take...;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Fox Hollow Set - Naki Rager


We all know that Newton's Nook Designs has a huge selection of cute and beautiful stamp sets, so as I always do, I looked through my collection and the Fox Hollow set stopped me! This is still one of my favorite sets! (well, to be honest, all of them are my favorites...LOL)


Newton's Nook Designs Fox Hollow Set - Naki Rager


I picked this adorable fox couple, and I wanted some pumpkins too so I borrowed those pumpkins from the Fall-Ing For You set. I stamped them on each side of my front panel with Antique Linen Distress Ink and watercolored them with shades of oranges and greens. Then I sponged the bottom of the panel with brown, and the other part with light blue. This beautiful fox couple was stamped with Antique Linen Distress Ink on watercolor paper and also colored with the challenge colors. I die cut it with the coordinating die and popped it on with foam tape. 


Newton's Nook Designs Fall-ing For You Set - Naki Rager


Another reason I borrowed the pumpkins from the FALL-Ling For You set was this beautiful sentiment! I heat embossed it with dark brown and copper embossing powder, don't these rich colors look beautiful against my light blue background!? I added some copper sequins around it for more rich, fall color and sparkle ;-)



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