Warm cocoa Card by Sue | Cup of Cocoa and Ornamental Wishes Stamp Sets by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Sue T. created this gorgeous card that will warm up your day!  She used the Cup of Cocoa Stamp Set and stamped the cups all over her background, using the colors of the challenge to color them in! What a fun way to create a custom background! Then she cut the scalloped Panel out using the Frames & Flags Die Set. To finish it out she added the sentiment inside an oval from our Ornamental Wishes Stamp Set. So warm and cozy!

Love is in the air by Bobbi features Holding Happiness, Uplifting Wishes, and Delightful Doxies by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook

Bobbi Lemanski creates a fabulous water colored background using the black and blue challenge colors. She then adds the main attraction using the Holding Happiness stamp and die set. The fun sentiment that she stamps on her card is from the Uplifting Wishes stamp set. To add even more fun, she adds extra balloons floating away using the Delightful Doxies stamp and die set.

Snow-one else like you by Becky features Frozen Friend and Plaid by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Becky Noelle brings us this cozy scene with the snowmen from the Frozen Friends stamp set enjoying a cup of hot cocoa. She creates that fabulous plaid background using the Plaid stencil set. She uses a textured paste to create the white layer. Then finishes the plaid by using red ink. She wraps red and white twine around the bottom before adding dimension tape for a 3D look. Delightful!

I'd rather be in NYC by Debbie features Newton Dreams of New York, Framework, and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnoo
Debbie Owens creates a water colored background for her New York scene which she die cuts using the Framework die set. Those tall building and spotted kitty are from the Newton Dreams of New York stamp set as is the sentiment which she embosses in white before die cutting with a banner die from the Frames & Flags die set. She adds Glossy Accents to the apple for a bit of shine. Fun!

Warm Winter Wishes by Diane features Tree Rings and Winter Birds by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Diane Morales creates this fabulous circular-shaped card! She uses the Tree Rings stencil to create the subtle ringed background then adds that beautiful cardinal from the Winter Birds stamp and die set. She embosses the sentiment on a sky blue banner.
