A Rainbow Thank You Cards and a Fond Farewell to Nakaba Rager

Saying Thank you & Farewell to Naki!

Today we are sharing a duo of rainbow thank you cards by Naki. She created these simple yet beautiful cards by mixing sentiments from our Thankful Thoughts Stamp Set, stamped in rainbows and metallics! For the long card she also used our Slimline Frames & Portholes Die Set to add the scalloped die cut panel and on the square card she used our Frames Squared Die Set to add the square scalloped panel. Both cards were finished with colorful sequin accents! These cards are so simple and yet have so much fun and character!

I am sad to say that this project marks the LAST post for Naki Rager as part of our Design Team at Newton's Nook Designs! We have truly enjoyed having Naki on our Team for FOUR incredible years! Naki has wowed us consistently with her amazing no-line coloring skills and use of soft watercoloring mixed with metallics! Her cards are always so unique and we truly loved seeing them each month! Plus, she is just the sweetest person ever and we have truly enjoyed her friendship!  We will always consider her part of our NND family! We are so sad to see her go but we feel lucky to have had her hang out with us for so long! We wish her the very best as she takes a break. You will want to keep her blog, Notes from Naki, bookmarked so you can go back to see everything she has created and check for updates! 

I thought it would be fun to re-share a few of our favorite cards by Naki (although it was so hard to choose just a few):
Isn't it cool how Naki colored the kitties from our Newton's Movie Night Stamp Set in just black and white!? She also used our Popcorn Stencil on this card. You can find this card originally posted here

This card is one of my favorites showcasing Naki's no-line coloring! So beautiful! She used our Naughty Newton Stamp Set on this along with a sentiment from our Happy Little Thoughts Stamp Set. This card was first posted here
This card was PURRfect for when everyone was searching the stores for toilet paper this year! Again, she used our Naughty Newton Stamp Set, adding in letters using our Essential Alphabet Die Set and textured loops in the background using our Confetti Stencil. Her card was first posted here. 

This card totally made us smile! She created a custom pun on the Doctor Who TV Series, using our Essential Alphabet Die Set for the letters, our Woof Pack Stamp Set for the big crowd of dogs and 3D glasses too! Details on this card are at this post
This card expresses how we will feel about Naki and her clever and sweet cards! We love how she colored those kittes from our Newton Loves Boxes Stamp Set and that rainbow heart background is stunning! Find details on the original post here

Thank you so much, Naki, for the awesome inspiration! We'll miss you! If you would like to continue to follow Naki you can find her at her blog, Notes from Naki!
