Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge - Favorite

Cat's Meow cats one layer Card by Nina-Marie Design | Stamps by Newton's Nook Designs
This fun and colorful card by Nina-Marie Designs really caught our eye. We loved how she added the big MEOW behind the kitty in the box from the Newton's Antics stamp set and added some awesome paint splatter too. The coloring with the shading around the box really adds some dimension to the one layer card too!

Thinking of you cats one layer Card by Cat Craig | Stamps by Newton's Nook Designs
This sweet and simple card by Cat Craig was also a favorite! I love the coloring of the kitties from the Newton's Antics stamp set on the kraft cardstock. The way she added a fun shape with a white pen was was such a neat idea to add some dimension to a one-layer card!

Cat in Box one layer Card by Emily Lauritzen | Stamps by Newton's Nook Designs
Our final favorite from this challenge is this bright and colorful card by Emily Lauritzen. The way she did creative stenciling with arrows pointing the kitty is so fun! She also used the kitty in the box from our Newton's Antics stamp set.
Thanks so much!
