Thank you by Crystal features Peony Blooms and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook

Need a  a lovely way to send a heart-filled thank you card? Then Crystal Komera's beautifully designed card is for you!  Beginning with pattern paper with tiny little red hearts, she adds a red, scallop-edged frame using the Frames & Flags die set. Notice those subtle hearts on the red. {swoon} Adding a large white heart, Crystal stamps little red hearts and the sentiment from the Peony Blooms stamp. For her finale, she adds her beautifully colored flowers from the Peony Blooms stamp and die set.  

Love by Debbie features Newton's Christmas Cuddles and Darling Hearts by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Super CAS and super cute is the direction Debbie Owens interprets this challenge. Using a silver foil striped paper, Debbie cuts the heart shape using the Darling Hearts die set. She then cuts several sentiments and layers them to add dimension. She then stamps the furry feline from the Purr-fect Present stamp set and colors her like a Siamese.  For the gift box, she colors in silver and pinks.  She adds a few sequins to add some pink accents. Darling!

Mine by Diane features Sunscape, It's a Plan, Gull Friends, Sea Borders, Essential Alphabet, and Frames Squared by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Diane Morales uses hearts in a very creative way!  Using the Sunscape stencil, Diane uses yellow inks to create the sun rays. She then goes back and stamps little hearts from the It's a Plan stamp set in the rays!  I know, so fun!  She adds some light blue water using the Sea Borders die set. She adds the seagulls on the pier posts from the Gull Friends stamp and die set. For her two-colored sentiment, she uses letters from the Essential Alphabet die set.  To make this into a square card, Diane uses the Frames Squared die set. So cute!

Love is in the air by Sue features Winston Takes Flight, Uplifting Wishes, Tumbling Hearts, and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Take off for a little bit of love!  Sue T. creates this darling card featuring this adorable pilot from the Winston Takes Flight stamp set. Her pink and red plane with the added polka-dotted heart is just too cute.  Then there's the exhaust---pink hearts--made by a bit of masking and the Tumbling Hearts stencil.  She adds the perfect sentiment from the Uplifting Wishes stamp set. She frames all of this on a dark pink scallop-edged frame using the Frames & Flags die set. Seriously cute!

You're just my type by Becky features My Type and Happy Little Thoughts by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
 Looks like Becky Noelle has been practicing her typing skills!  Look at her very long page of
 Xs & Os!  That sweet, vintage, pink typewriter is from  the My Type stamp set
 and all those rows of hearts are from the Happy Little Thoughts stamp set. Becky places her typewriter on a little doily and stamps the sentiment on it.  If you look closely, her background has lots of typewritten words!
