Many thanks by Diane features Penguin Pile, Thankful Thoughts, Mountains, Evergreens, and Petite Snow by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Diane Morales creates a wintry haven for this trio of penguins! Using the Petite Snow stencil, Diane creates a snowy background. She then adds those big fir trees using the Evergreens stencil. Diane uses a third stencil, Mountains, to create a snowy landscape on which her softly colored penguins from the Penguin Pile stamp set can stand on. She embosses the sentiment from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set.

Snow-one else like you features Frozen Friends, Petite Snow, and Sea Borders by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Have you ever seen a hand standing snowman?  Well,  Sue T. captures the inner child with her playful card that features just such a snowman!  Using the snowman from Frozen Friends stamp set, she places him upside down in a pile of snow created using the Sea Borders die set. The snowy sky was created using the Petite Snow stencil!  Such a wonderful card!

Holiday Wishes to Deer Friends by Becky features Festive Fawns and Snowfall by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
The big, wintry snowflakes make for a perfect background for Becky Noelle's festive card. Becky uses the Snowfall stencil with opal foil for her background. She adds the snowman with his forest friends from the Festive Fawns stamp set. She adds red, scalloped edging on the bottom of her panel that ties the red scarf together wonderfully!

You're snow much fun by Bobbi features Petite Snow, Frozen Fellowship, Speech Bubbles, and Moose Mountain by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Bobbi Lemanski  creates a 5" x 7" card that is packed with snowmen delight!  Using the Petite Snow stencil with embossing paste, she creates a wintry night sky. She then stamps the Frozen Fellowship stamp set twice to create an extra large gathering of snowy people! She colors their accessories in shades of red and green for a Christmas feel. She adds a speech bubble using the Speech Bubbles die set and adds a sentiment from the Moose Mountain stamp set for the sentiment.

Happy Holidays by Debbie featuring Newton's Curious Christmas, Petite Snow, Forest Scene Builder, Stylish Stockings, Snow Globe Scenes, Land Borders, and Holiday Greetings by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Looks like this feline from Newton's Curious Christmas stamp set is helping his friend hang up his holiday stocking!  Debbie Owens creates this whimsical card by using the Petite Snow stencil for her background. She adds some birch trees using the Forest Scene Builder die set and hangs a stocking between them. The stocking was cut from the Stylish Stockings die set on which the wee little snowman from the Snow Globe Scenes stamp set was stamped. She creates some hills using the Land Borders die set and adds lots of glitter. She also adds glitter to the sentiment using the Holiday Greetings die set.

Naughty or nice by KT Kitty features Newton's Candy Cane and Newton's Curious Christmas by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
