Frantic Stamper December Release - Around The World

Saturday, December 9, 2017



Hi, there lovelies!
I am back with another card I made with the Frantic Stamper December Release today!
The theme for this release is Around The World, and I had so much fun making my projects with these new dies!

Okay, here it goes...;-)




For today's card, I used 2 of the new dies, Suitcase Stacked (10358) and Bon Voyage (10359). I used my travel themed patterned paper for this one as well, it's just too perfect and too fun! 




I sat at my desk and thought and thought, how do I want my suitcases to look?
Patterned papers would make a fun stack, or I could watercolor...but I decided to accentuate the beautiful details by paper piecing ;-) I die cut the suitcases from ivory cardstock, then from gold foil for the little pieces (Oh my goodness, I just noticed I am missing one gold corner piece!!! 😱), and patterned paper for the tags. Isn't this absolutely beautiful with all those little gold accents!? 




Such a gorgeous sentiment die 💗
I die cut it twice from black cardstock and layered them for a little dimension (I really like to do that 😜), and added some sparkle with Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen (available in Frantic Stamper Shop). 



Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hope you enjoyed it!
I have super cute cards to share so do come back!

Newton's Nook Designs Mermaid Crossing Set - Naki Rager



How about Christmas under the sea with a pretty mermaid!?
For this card today, I used the Mermaid Crossing stamp set, Tranquil Tides stamp set, Sentiments Of The Season stamp set, and the Waves Stencil


Newton's Nook Designs Mermaid Crossing Set - Naki Rager


Here is my beautiful mermaid putting up the star on the coral tree ;-)
She was heat embossed with glow-in-the-dark embossing powder on watercolor paper, colored, and fussy cut. Scroll down to see her glow in the dark!


Newton's Nook Designs Mermaid Crossing Set - Naki Rager


WHOA!!! Isn't it fun!? 
I applied blue glow-in-the-dark Nuvo crystal drop to her star also ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Mermaid Crossing Set - Naki Rager


I created the background with Ranger Distress Oxide Ink. I then stamped the shell image from the Tranquil Tides stamp set with the iced spruce distress oxide ink twice to create the live rock on the right corner, heat embossed the cluster of dots with calypso coral embossing powder on the rock. The sentiment from the Sentiments Of The Season stamp set was also heat embossed with calypso coral embossing powder on vellum and fussy cut.

Newton's Nook Designs Peppermint Die Set - Naki Rager

Newton's Nook Designs Peppermint Die Set - Naki Rager


I die cut a few mints with white and shimmery mint cardstocks and threw them in in my vellum tag with some gold and silver circle confetti and clear star confetti. I popped on another mint with its wrapper on the front along with the joy die from the Snow Globe Shaker die set.

Frantic Stamper December Release - Around The World

Saturday, December 2, 2017



Hello, lovelies!
I am here with my first card for the Frantic Stamper December Release today!
The theme for this release is "Around the World", how fun is that!?

Okay, here it goes...;-)




I am starting off this release quietly with this CAS card! {Hee Hee}
I have this awesome travel themed patterned paper pad that was just perfect for today's card, and making this was super fast! (and I am a VERY slow card maker! LOL)




This Globe Die (10357) is so awesome!
As always, Fran's attention to detail makes such amazing dies!
I die cut this one twice from kraft cardstock and layered them, this is a great way to add dimension to intricate designs because using foam tape might be a bit difficult ;-) I thought about die cutting from another color and paper piece the continents, but I just LOVE this simple kraft look, I decided not to. Sometimes "Less is More", right!? ;-)




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



Frantic Stamper November Release

Thursday, November 30, 2017



Hello, lovelies!
I have one more card with the Frantic Stamper November Release to share before we enter December ;-)

Okay, here it goes ;-)




When I first received this gorgeous Music Ribbon Die, I wanted to make a shaker card!
I decided to keep this card very CAS because this music score is just fun itself!
I used Lawn Fawn I Love You Border lawn Cut for my sentiment since this is a long and skinny card, it was perfect!




I die cut the Music Ribbon from 3"x6-1/2" white cardstock to create a window, adhered acetate on the back of the panel, placed my Music Ribbon that was die cut from black cardstock. I then poured in a bunch of heart confetti and beads inside. When you shake the card, it just makes you want to sing and dance! 




Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hope you enjoyed it!
The December Release starts tomorrow and I will be back with several projects so stay tuned! It's a really fun theme! ;-)

Hello, lovelies!
I am up in the Newton's Nook Designs Blog with another Christmas card today!
Now that Thanksgiving is over, I'm a Christmas card making machine! {LOL}
And I am planning on actually mailing them this year instead of just adding to my collection 😝


Newton's Nook Designs Snowglobe Scenes Set - Naki Rager


Are you a Pinterest junkie like me?
If so, I'm sure you've seen these beautiful Mason jar snow globes!
That was my inspiration here today ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Snowglobe Scenes Set - Naki Rager


I stamped the Mason jar from the Lovely Blooms set, and the tree and snowman from the Snow Globe Scenes set on white cardstock. After coloring the image with chameleon markers, I die cut the jar with the coordinating die. Then I applied snow maker marker and heated it. Isn't the puffy snow so much fun!? I added the little round tag from the Tags Times Two Die Set and tied it around the top of the jar with some twine like it is a gift ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Snowglobe Scenes Set - Naki Rager


This lovely sentiment is from the Sentiments of the Season set, which was heat embossed right on my front panel after sponging. I used the Starfield Stencil and Multi Medium Matte, and sparkling clear sequins to add some "sparkle" to match the sentiment ;-) 




Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hope you enjoyed it!
Have a lovely day ;-)



Frantic Stamper Nvember Release - Love and Music

Saturday, November 25, 2017



Hello, lovelies!
Hope those in the US had a fabulous Thanksgiving day!
I am back with another card with the Frantic Stamper November Release!
Here it goes! ;-)




Isn't this really fun with all those beautiful brass instruments!?
They're so beautiful, I had to frame them!
The YOU and SING sentiments are from Dance Rock Sing Die Set ;-) Since the theme of this release is Love and Music, this custom made sentiment was appropriate, and fun!




I die cut all the instruments from the Brass Musical Instruments Die Set from Copper Foil Sheet. Those delicate designs on them are simply gorgeous, aren't they!? Fran makes the most intricate dies, such attention to detail! I fussy cut the frames from a patterned paper, I thought copper with green was an unusual color combo but super fun!



Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hope you enjoyed it!
I will be back with another card so do come back!



Frantic Stamper November Release - Love and Music

Thursday, November 23, 2017



Hey, lovelies! Happy Thanksgiving!
I am here with my second card with the Frantic Stamper November Release!
This new release' theme is Love and Music, how fun is that!?




I am absolutely in love with the Baby Grand Piano die!
I come from a musical family, my grandpa was an opera singer, and both my grandma and mom gave piano lessons and even had annual recitals. My grandparents even had this gorgeous grand piano, which sounded just beautiful 💛




I die cut this little beauty from the black glimmer paper and added a little white piece behind the keys, and a taupe piece in the opening. 




I also die cut the sentiment (Dance Rock Sing Die) from the same black glimmer paper and white cardstock, and layered them to give some contrast and dimension. It was overlapped on the Heart Clef Die, which was die cut from taupe and pink cardstock, the heart part in pink was trimmed and layered over the taupe piece. 
Everything was framed with the Rectangle Tangled Frames Die that was die cut from white cardstock and mounted over the music score patterned paper. 



Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hoe you enjoyed it!
I will be back with 2 more cards so do come back!



Newton's Nook Designs November Release Day 3

Wednesday, November 22, 2017


Hello, lovelies!
Welcome back to the Newton's Nook Designs November Release!
All the new products will be available for purchase this Friday the 24th, PLUS there will be black Friday sale as well in the Newton's Nook Designs Shop! WOW!
Today is the final day of the reveal and we're showcasing 2 adorable set along with their
 coordinating die sets ;-)



This one is called Llama Delivery ;-)
Llamas have been trending a little while now, and you see them everywhere! I even saw these Christmas outfits for little girls with cute llamas! (I must get them for my girls! LOL)


This one is called Newton's Candy Cane ;-)
Newton is so stinkin' cute with his giant candy cane, isn't he!?

Alright, here are my takes...;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Llama Delivery Set - Naki Rager


I simply ADORE this cute little llama 💙
She is also a happy llama, she's humming fa-la-la 🎶


Newton's Nook Designs Llama Delivery Set - Naki Rager


She was stamped with Antique Linen Distress Ink on watercolor paper, watercolored, and die cut with the coordinating die. I popped on this cutie on my front panel, which was sponged with lime green, some water was splattered, and the music note image was stamped over and over.


Newton's Nook Designs Llama Delivery Set - Naki Rager


I made another card with this cute llama, but for this one, she has a lot more presents stacked up on her back! This long card measures 3-1/4"x 7-1/4"!  After stamping the presents on top of each other, I also stamped a single present that comes with the set on the very top, and traced the ribbon with the black Nuvo crustal drop and made it really messy! {UGH!}


Newton's Nook Designs Llama Delivery Set - Naki Rager


I colored this one chocolate brown and gave her a little red flower on her head ;-)
I used the light blue Nuvo crystal drop on her ankles, I think they look so cute!


Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Candy Cane Set - Naki Rager


My first card with the Newton's Candy Cane set is a shaker!
I stamped and colored the 2 candies from the set with glimmer watercolor, and die cut them with the coordinating dies. Along with the gold, silver, and clear star confetti, they went under the acetate safely ;-) The sentiment was split into two and heat embossed with gold on vellum, and die cut with one of the flags from the Frames and Flags Die Set. 


Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Candy Cane Set - Naki Rager


My kitty was heat embossed with white embossing powder on watercolor paper, watercolored, and die cut with the coordinating die. I decided to color this little guy like a panda but with brown. I love those panda kitties that you see on Pinterest! 


Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Candy Cane Set - Naki Rager


I am obsessing with these mints, and I don't even like them that much! {LOL}
Since I like them so much, I just had to do something with them and this is what I came up with, a mint wreath! That sentiment is super sweet, too ;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Candy Cane Set - Naki Rager


So I actually heat embossed all these mints with Enchanted Gold embossing powder (which is very light) on mint cardstock, but it turned out looking tone-on-tone like I used clear embossing powder! I colored some of the swirls with white gel pen, die cut them all with the coordinating die, and mounted them one by one on a circle that I die cut. I placed my sweet wreath on a snippet of gold thread, popped on my vellum sentiment, and sprinkled a few gold star confetti ;-)

Newton's Nook Designs November Release Day 2

Tuesday, November 21, 2017



Hello, lovelies!
Welcome back to the Newton's Nook Designs November Release!
All the new products will be available for purchase this Friday the 24th, PLUS there will be black Friday sale as well in the Newton's Nook Designs Shop! I know!!!
Today is day 3 and we're revealing this adorable stamp set Winter Woofs along with the coordinating die set ;-)




I was so excited to see the husky image! 
That corgi on a sleigh is super fun too, isn't it!?

Here are my takes...;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Winter Woofs Set - Naki Rager


Huskies are such a beautiful breed, they've always been one of my favorites!
So naturally, I picked this adorable pup for my first card ;-) 


Newton's Nook Designs Winter Woofs Set - Naki Rager


I stamped the image with light gray on watercolor paper, which was die cut with the Frames and Flags Die Set first. After watercoloring the image, I heat embossed a few snowflakes with silver to match the sparkly silver watercolor I used on the snow. The sentiment was also heat embossed with silver on vellum then die cut with one of the new flag dies. I popped it on with clear 3D tape then added hemp twine and a wooden snowflake. 


Newton's Nook Designs Winter Woofs Set - Naki Rager


My second card is with this adorable corgi 💙
And how could I have resisted a slider with him!


Newton's Nook Designs Winter Woofs Set - Naki Rager


He was stamped with Antique Linen Distress Ink on watercolor paper, watercolored, and die cut with the coordinating die. I like to color the white outline with the same colors as the background, in this case, blue and silver ;-) I then simply cut the white glimmer paper angled to match the slider so this pup can have fun sliding down the hill ;-) 
"Oh what fun!" and some snowflakes are the perfect finishing touches to this simple designed card ;-)
