Mermaid for each other by Diane features Purr-maid and Tumbling Hearts by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Diane Morales creates a fabulous water colored background that is just perfect for the Purr-maids from the Purr-maid Newton stamp and die set to swim around in. Diane uses the Tumbling Hearts stencil to create a subtle background on the coral stripe. For a playful touch, she adds the cute, green seahorse!
Grab life by the horn and ride by Sue features Believe in Unicorns by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Sue T. uses a combination of pattern papers to create a perfect setting for her magical unicorn from the Believe in Unicorns stamp and die set. She adds shimmer to the mane and tail to add a touch of magic!

We make the purr-fect blend by Becky features Newton Loves Coffee, Hardwood, and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook

Becky Noelle creates a textured, wood grain background using the Hardwood stencil.  She splatters a bit of white paint to add a fabulous touch.  For her stripe, Becky stamps the coffee mugs from the Newton Loves Coffee stamp set and adds dotted stripes for an argyle-like look.  For the main attraction, she adds two cat-feinated images from the  Newton Loves Coffee stamp set for a purr-fect blend!  The sentiment was stamped and die cut using the Frames & Flags die set.

Ready for some color?  Then Bobbi Lemanski's card will satisfy you!  She begins with a confetti dotted card base and flicks on black watercolor for a random speckled pattern.  She adds a black and white striped paper with a strip of red on the side.  She then adds a circle divided into fourths. Each in a bright color.  She then adds her gray kitty with her black stripes from the Sending Hugs stamp and die set.  She uses the latte cup from the set and creates a rainbow cozy!  For her envelope, she adds matching dots using her Copics markers.

Pina koala by Debbie features Sunscape, Serene Stripes, Pina Koala, Frames Squared, and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Debbie Owens brings us a sunny card by using the Sunscape stencil die cut using the Frames Squared die set. She then creates a bamboo-like stripe using the Serene Stripes stencils. She stamps the sentiment from the Pina Koala stamp set on the banner die from the Frames & Flags die set. She colors the sweet koala (Pina Koala stamp set) with colored pencils.  A lime-green stripe of washi tape is her final touch.
