Amy Tollner showcases one of the puppies from the Fabulous Frenchies stamp and coordinating die set, and boy is he cute in his peach and pink striped sweater! She places this sweet pup on a distressed tag die cut using the Fancy Edges Tag die set. For more stripe fun, she uses the Serene Stripes stencil in hues of yellow, peach, and pink for her background which has been die cut using the postage-edged die from the Framework die set. Oh la la!
Claire Lamb brings us this amazing pop card featuring the Newton Dreams of Paris stamp and coordinating die set on both the outside and inside of her card! She has little hot air balloons flying past the Eiffel tower on her diagonally embossed front. Then open up the card, and a large hot air balloon pops up piloted by the ever cute black kitty! For added fun, she has used the Sky Borders die set for her puffy clouds at the top. Below she uses the Land Borders die set to create her ground on which the love-struck kitten awaits the landing of the balloon! A fabulous way to use the retiring Newton Dreams of Paris stamp set!
Debbie Owens uses some masking to create her striped rainbow-colored background on which she stamps the silhouette of the palm trees and birds from the Paradise Palms stamp set. For added contrast, she adds a black scallop-edged frame die cut using the Frames Squared die set. A simple design packed with lots of colors and fun!
Diane Morales is back with a circular card! Uses dies from the Circle Frames die set to create her base and layers. Love those lavender stripes? Diane uses one of the Retro Sun & Palms stencils to create them. She then adds the ever cute kitten on his beach chair. This cutie is from the Kitten Beach stamp and coordinating die set. She adds a couple starfish and striped shells to complete this darling card!
Sue T. brings us this beautiful card showcasing the Dainty Daisies stamp and coordinating die set in lovely shades of pink. For dramatic effect, she, like Diane, uses one of the stencils from the Retro Sun and Palms stencil set to create her black stripes. She then die cuts this using one of the dies from the Circle Frames die set. All of this is placed on a white scallop-edged frame die cut using the Frames & Flags die set. She also uses the banner die from this set to stamp her sentiment. A beautiful combination of NND products!
