Paws-ing to send you a happy hello by Diane features Smitten Kittens and Circle Frames by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #catcards, #cardmaking
Diane Morales creates a water colored background in shades of greens and teals. She uses the Circle Frames die set to create a scallop-edged circle as well as a circular card. She adds a couple of paw prints and the sentiment. Her main attraction is the darling kitten from the Smitten Kittens stamp and die set.  Her light coloring of the kitten is spe-cat-ular!  


Time to celebrate by Sue T. features Balloons, Newton's Birthday Balloons, and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #birthdaycards, #cardmaking
Newton looks darling floating amid all those green and blue balloons! Sue T.'s festive card uses the Balloons stencil with watercolors. She uses the rounded rectangle frame from the Frames & Flags die set. Next she colors Newton from the Newton's Birthday Balloons  stamp set in soft grays. She cuts using the coordinating die set. 


Amy T shares her watercolor master piece that features the newly released Newton peeking from his pink mug!  This sweet image is from the Newton's Mug stamp and cut using the coordinating die. She adds white flowers using a little image from the Happy Little Thoughts stamp set. If that was cute enough, she adds the smiling muffin from the Love Bites stamp and die set.  Using the dies from the Frames Squared die set, she cuts multiple layers.  She uses the Pawprints stencil and water color pens for the mat around her kitty. At last she pulls the banner die from the Frames & Flags die set and stamps the sentiment.  Cute!  



Claire Lamb uses watercolors for her rainy scene!  Her water-laden clouds die cut using the Sky Borders die set are sprinkling on her darling critters from the Newton's Rain Boots stamp and die set.  Those rain boots look darling with their hearts stamped on them and colored in pastels.  And her ducks look like they are having fun playing in her watercolor puddle!  A wonderfully designed spring card!



Love by Debbie features Woodland Spring, Floral Lace, Frames & Flags, Darling Hearts, and Flower Trio by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #watercoloring, #inkypaws
 Debbie Owens uses dies from the Frames & Flags die set to create her layers. Her main layer is a watercolor layer in purples and blues on which she uses the Floral Lace stencil with white paint. She adds a vellum heart die cut using the Heart Frames die set. She adds flowers from the Flower Trio die set before adding the word love die cut from the Darling Hearts die set.  The sweet fawn and friend from the Woodland Spring stamp set tops off her card.  A combination of cuteness with elegance!
