Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Week - Day 1- Melody Rupple

Deck the Halls with Inky Paws - Newton's Nook Designs

Welcome to day one of our Deck the Halls with Inky Paws week! 

Each day this week we will have a new awesome featured guest and then a BIG blog hop on Friday, December 9th (with some give-aways, of course!) So make sure you come back and visit us every day!

Today's Featured guest is
Melody Rupple

I am married with four daughters and I feel lucky to live in beautiful San Diego, California. I work in the Accounting/Management Information System field.

From a young age, I was always “crafty.” I learned to sew when I was in my teens and I still have the simple scrapbooks I made in high school. When my children were young, I started making family scrapbooks for them. About seven years ago, I discovered card making, which opened a whole new world of blogging, challenges, and online shopping!

I have been lucky enough to have had the opportunity to design for a number of wonderful stamp companies. I enjoy guest designing and playing along with card making and scrapbook challenges. I appreciate all the friends I made through my craft and am very excited to be designing for Newton’s Nook Designs!

You can visit my blog at You can also find me on Facebook and Pinterest.

Here's what Melody created!

Fox in Sweater card by Melody Rupple | Sweater Weather Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Melody created TWO beautiful cards today using our Sweater Weather stamp set!  The first card features our cute little fox wearing in his adorable sweater and hat! She used such a fun green and teal color combo on his winter wear, including two mittens too! She trimmed out all these parts using the coordinating Sweater Weather Die Set. The snowy sky she created on this card is so fun too!

Cat in Sweater Shaker card by Melody Rupple | Sweater Weather Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

This second card by Melody features the kitty in a sweater from our Sweater Weather stamp set! She colored the kitties sweater in blue and red to match the fun snowflake paper she used for the background! I love how she added a fun shaker window to put the "sending warm thoughts" sentiment into! Plus, the line of stitching on the the red strip of paper really ties into the sweater theme! So cozy! 

Make sure you head over to to get all the details on how she created this card!  

Thanks so much, Melody for being our guest today! She will be back for our Deck the Halls with Inky Paws blog hop on Friday, December 9th. Until then, you can visit her at her blog, A Paper Melody to read more about her adorable projects and say hello!

Tomorrow we will have special Guest Lynn Putt from The Queens Scene 
so make sure you take some time to come back and visit us again!
