You lift me up by Bobbi features Delightful Doxies by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Bobbi Lemanski creates layers of ombre' with this amazing card!  Using watercolor paper, Bobbi creates an ombre' effect in several color palette. She then stamps the kite image from the Delightful Doxies stamp set and cuts them out.  After creating the cloudy background, she arranges her kites to create the ombre' effect which looks fantastic. She then stamps the sentiment and draws in tails for her many kites. Fabulously done!

Movie night by Debbie features Newton's Movie Night, Sea Borders, Cloudy Sky, Shark Frenzy, and Purr-maid Newton by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Inspired by IPC 96, use colored pencils, Debbie Owens may have you reliving the first time you watched the movie Jaws!  Her trio of kitties from the Newton's Movie Night stamp and die set show different reactions as they watch a shark fin sneaky up on an unsuspecting kitty swimming in the ocean and then attack!  Deb creates the two film cells by using the Sea Borders die set, Cloudy Sky stencil, images from the Shark Frenzy stamp set and the Purr-maid Newton stamp set.

Party by Diane features Newton Dreams London, Italy, New York, and Paris; Newton's Antics and Kitchen; Newton Loves Coffee; Naughty Newton; and Naughty Newton by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Diane Morales couldn't decide on just ONE favorite stamp set, so she decided to create this card full of her favorite feline images of Newton!  She kept her images in black and white and colored in a handful of hearts . She placed her white, stamped panel on a black card base to give a fabulous contrast.  Ready to learn which stamp sets each feline image came from.  Starting in the top left corner, we have Newton eating a plateful of pasta from the Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set. The torch holding kitty is from Newton Dreams of New York stamp set. Then there's the  beret wearing kitty from Newton Dreams of Paris stamp set and the kitty in a box from Newton's Antics stamp set. The kitty trying to sneak some coffee is from Newton Loves Coffee stamp set. The flag wearing kitty is from Newton Dreams of London stamp set. The bottom row has a kitty kneading some dough from the Newton's Kitchen stamp set and the astrocat is from Cosmic Newton stamp set. Diane adds the Bad Kitty and Party sentiment from the Naughty Newton stamp set. She sprinkles on some star sequins for a bit of sparkle! This card is going to make a feline-lovin' person very happy!

Make today beautiful by Sue features Frames & Flags, Dainty Daisies, and Floral Fringe by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Sue T. shows us how to create a one-layer card by cleverly using the dies from the Frames & Flags die set for embossing, not cutting.  Love the illusion of texture she creates using this technique.  For her center focal point, she uses the Dainty Daisies stamp set. She colors the daisies in light yellow on her Kraft card base and in shades of lavenders on her white card base. She pulls the uplifting sentiment from the Floral Fringe stamp set.

Find your paradise by Becky features Paradise Palms and Aloha Newton by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Becky Noelle uses IPC #12 to create this beach paradise. She begins by selecting a burlap background and adds her beach scene. She creates a sandy beach with lapping waves. She adds white paint to create the sea foam.She adds the palm trees and hammock with the napping newton from the Aloha Newton stamp set. She stamps her sentiment from the Paradise Palms stamp set and wraps some light colored twine around to complete her delightful card.
