Newton's Nook Designs August Release Day 4

Thursday, August 17, 2017


Hello, my lovelies!
Welcome back to the final day of the Newton's Nook Designs August Release!
All the new products will be available for purchase tomorrow Friday the 18th over at the Newton's Nook Designs Shop!
Today, we are showcasing the Autumn Newton set along with the coordinating die set!



I think I say this every month, but I look forward to Newton set and Jen never disappoints me! Isn't this absolutely adorable!!? I'm extra happy about this one because she usually makes fall set for Simon Says Stamp Stamptember, which is only available at their website. 
Here come my cards...;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Autumn Newton Set - Naki Rager


I am so very in LOVE with these cute autumn images!
I love fall, so many pretty earthy colors outside:-) Not to mention nice, cool breeze and clear blue sky! That was exactly what I was picturing while making this card ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Autumn Newton Set - Naki Rager


This adorable image was heat embossed with tan embossing powder on watercolor paper, water colored, then die cut with the coordinating die. Coloring pumpkins/gourds is so much fun, mixing oranges and greens and yellows...:-) For this one, I kept my kitties and background similar colors, warm and earthy.


Newton's Nook Designs Autumn Newton Set - Naki Rager


My second card is all about layers!
We start layering clothes as the weather cools down, and cooler weather lets you dress in fun and warm patterns as well! {LOVE IT!}


Newton's Nook Designs Autumn Newton Set - Naki Rager


Isn't this so sweet!?
It was heat embossed with tan embossing powder on watercolor paper, water colored (which I enjoyed so very much!), then die cut with the coordinating die set. Now that I've made these adorable fall cards, I can't wait for autumn! ;-)

Newrton's Nook Designs August Release Day 3

Wednesday, August 16, 2017


Hello, lovelies!
Welcome back to the Newton's Nook Designs August Release!
All the new products will be available for purchase this Friday the 18th over at the Newton's Nook Designs Shop!
Today is day 3 of the reveal, and we are showcasing the Knight's Quest set along with the coordinating die set! 




Oh man! Princesses yesterday, now the knights!
And do you see that cute but fierce dragon there!? EEEEK!
Alright, here I go...;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Knight's Quest Set - Naki Rager


This handsome knight actually reminded me of King Arthur, and when I say King Arthur, I'm talking about the one from the British TV show Merlin (I miss that show so much!). So he is royal, and I immediately thought of "Royal Blue", and I LOVE blue with yellow! 


Newton's Nook Designs Knight's Quest Set - Naki Rager


He was TONS of FUN to color! 
I wanted a crazy, bright color for his armor, but his royal colors looked so good, I colored it gray ;-) A white horse and gold accents on black and white background really make my knight pop, don't you think!!? 


Newton's Nook Designs Knight's Quest Set - Naki Rager


My second card is all about this cute dragon๐Ÿ’–
This poor guy is under attack! But fear not! He is a fire breathing dragon! {wink}
I borrowed the sentiment "I believe in you" from the Once Upon a Princess set ;-) 


Newton's Nook Designs Knight's Quest Set - Naki Rager


He is mad! but still so stinkin' cute ๐Ÿ’–
He was heat embossed with black on watercolor paper, water colored, then die cut with the coordinating die. Ohh, I just LOVE his cute, fierce face!

Newton's Nook Designs August Release Day 2

Tuesday, August 15, 2017


Hello, my lovelies!
Welcome back to the Newton's Nook Designs August Release!
All the new products will be available for purchase this Friday the 18th over at the Newton's Nook Designs Shop!
Today is day 2 of the reveal and we're sharing the adorable Once Upon a Princess set along with the coordinating die set!



I am so in LOVE with this sweet and enchanting set! 
I'm also loving the fact that Jen is branching out to non-critter images!
These princesses are absolutely adorable, aren't they!? 
Here we go!


Newton's Nook Designs Once Upon a Princess Set - Naki Rager


My twins (boy and girl) just turned 4 last Monday (I don't even know how that happened!) and this was for the girl :-) She is all about pinks and princesses and shiny things, such a girly girl! 


Newton's Nook Designs Once Upon a Princess Set - Naki Rager


After heat embossing this sweet princess with tan embossing powder, I water colored her dress pink and gold, and her hair bright brown just like her ;-) Her beautiful castle up on the hill was heat embossed with light gray embossing powder and water colored. The hill was die cut from patterned paper with the Land Borders Die


Newton's Nook Designs Once Upon a Princess Set - Naki Rager


{Ugh! Sorry about my dark photos again!} 
My second card is more simple but still sweet ;-)
Pink and light green are so sweet together, aren't they!?


Newton's Nook Designs Once Upon a Princess Set - Naki Rager


This princess was inspired by Tiana from the Disney movie The Princess and The Frog, obviously because of the frog prince she's holding...;-) She was stamped with Antique Linen Distress Ink on watercolor paper, no-line water colored, and die cut with the coordinating die. I colored her crown with the gold watercolor but it looked dull and dirty, so I heat embossed only the top part of the image with gold tinsel and fussy cut it.

Newton's Nook Designs August Release Day 1

Monday, August 14, 2017


Hello, there lovelies!
Welcome to the Newton's Nook Designs August Release!
All the new products will be available for purchase the Friday the 18th over at the Newton's Nook Designs Shop!
Today is day 1 of the reveal, and we are sharing the ADORABLE Believe in Unicorns set along with the coordinating die set!

You better take a deep breath before scrolling down...;-)





Oh my goodness!!!
Seriously, isn't this just simply adorable!!?
 Okay, ready to see what I made with these cuties!?



Newton's Nook Designs Believe in Unicorns Set - Naki Rager


Unicorns are such magical creatures, and they all come with sparkly magic dust, right!? The set comes with enough shimmer and shine, I wasn't going to let them go waste! Gosh, even the sentiment has sparkle!


Newton's Nook Designs Believe in Unicorns Set - Naki Rager


This fabulous unicorn was heat embossed with Gold Tinsel embossing powder because she is that fabulous! Her colors were inspired by Rainbow Dash from My Little Pony ;-) After she was water colored, I die cut her out with the coordinating die, and die cut 3 more with blue, pink, and yellow cardstocks to give her rainbow dimension ;-) Her cloud, which was die cut with the Sky Border Die set, even got some gold embossing powder! 


Newton's Nook Designs Believe in Unicorns Set - Naki Rager


{The photos of my second card are dark...long story!}
My second card is a total opposite of my first one, black and white!
The reasons for that are #1 just because...{LOL}
#2 It's a magic slider card! When you pull the tab on the side, my handsome unicorn jumps over the rainbow and turns the boring rainbow into a colorful one! 


Newton's Nook Designs Believe in Unicorns Set - Naki Rager

Newton's Nook Designs Believe in Unicorns Set - Naki Rager


He was heat embossed with the Rangers Black Sparkle Embossing Powder on watercolor paper, water colored, and die cut with the coordinating die. I added silver shimmery watercolor to the wing ;-) The rainbow was stamped with the Rangers Archival ink on watercolor paper and water colored. Figuring out the tab and lining up the 2 rainbow images took me waaaaay too long {LOL}, but it was well worth it!

Newtonn's Nook Designs Cultivated Cacti Set - Naki Rager


So adhesives are sticky, right? 
The Cultivated Cacti set has a sentiment that says, "Thank you for STICKING by me", and that's the set I grabbed right away! Not to mention it is such a cute and versatile set! 
3 of the beautiful cactus images were heat embossed and die cut with the coordinating die set, then planted on this beautiful cake stand from the Love and Chocolate die set. 


Newtonn's Nook Designs Cultivated Cacti Set - Naki Rager


I had to give my tall and handsome cactus sunglasses using the Newton's Summer Vacation set, and a little umbrella from the Tiki Time set ;-) 
The sentiment was heat embossed with gold embossing powder on vellum with polka dots.

Newton's Nook Designs

Wednesday, July 26, 2017




Hello, my lovelies!
I am up on the Newton's Nook Designs Blog with this adorable baby card today!


Newton's Nook Designs Loveable Laundry Set - Naki Rager


I had a baby shower to go to, she is having a baby boy ๐Ÿ’•
I used the Loveable Laundry (what a cute name, you know!) for this card, perfect! I heat embossed three of the onesie images from the set with Pool Party embossing powder and colored them in with Spectrum Noir Markers. I kind of left a lot of white space so I filled it with those tiny sweet sentiments ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Loveable Laundry Set - Naki Rager


This set comes with a lot of sentiments, I picked "welcome" and "baby" to heat emboss on vellum.  I also heat embossed the duck from one of the onesie images, colored him in, and fussy cut to use as an embellishment next to the sentiment. I added the tiny cloth pin and a few enamel dots also. I die cut a strip of "xo" to add a little more color and done! This was pretty quick to make, but tons of fun to make!



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


I'm happiest when...

Saturday, July 15, 2017

Hi there, lovelies!
So recently, I won a giveaway on Instagram, and finally had time to play with it!
Have you heard of the company Flora and Fauna? Their designs are so whimsical and lovely, I fell in love with them instantly!




This Mermaid Kisses set is what I won, isn't this adorable!?
And here is what I made...;-)


Flora and Fauna Mermaid Kisses Set - Naki Rager


I couldn't resist but to create a little scenery card!
I was looking at a few challenges and MFT had this color combo: Teal, Coral, Gray, and Black, and thought it was perfect for this set! I ended up not using any of their products so not entering it but I still do like to find inspirations to start up my cards!


Flora and Fauna Mermaid Kisses Set - Naki Rager


I think I'm addicted to Distress Oxide Ink, creating backgrounds with them is so fun and easy! This adorable Mermaid and two octopi were heat embossed with white on watercolor paper, water colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Set. I gave my mermaid gray hair! I dressed her up with that little flower sequin and a tiny pearl inside of it. I borrowed the coral image from the Under The Sea set (also from Flora and Fauna), heat embossed with Calypso Coral. They really pop against all the blue and green, don't they!?


Flora and Fauna Mermaid Kisses Set - Naki Rager


I am loving the little sentiments that come with the set, the old typewriter font is just lovely! I die cut the top of my sea panel with the Sea Border Die Set from Newton's Nook Designs and added that cute little sailing boat on top. The boat was stamped with Smoky Gray on watercolor paper, water colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Set, and fussy cut. I'm loving the little stripes on the mast! 



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

These beautiful, colorful birds are so festive and fun, just perfect for the celebration!


Newton's Nook Designs Toucan Party Set - Naki Rager


This beauty was heat embossed with Pool Party embossing powder on watercolor paper, water colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Set, and die cut with the coordinating die set. She dressed up for the party with a little flower on her head, which was also heat embossed, watercolored, and die cut. I borrowed those tropical leaves from the Hibiscus Die set, they were die cut first, sponged with Distress Oxide Ink, and some water was splattered. Of course, the sentiment die is from the new Cocktail Mixer Die Set ;-)
