Catch the purr-fect wave by Crystal features Newton's Perfect Wave and Scuba Newton by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #handmade
Crystal Komara's card with it's lovely orange sun will have you reaching for your surfboard and heading to the coast!  Look at Newton from the Newton's Perfect Wave stamp and die set catching a big wave!  Underneath those waves, you find some surprises from the Scuba Newton stamp and die set!  Fun!

You make me a happy camper by Debbie features Cozy Campers, Framework, and Circle Frames by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Using the little images from the Cozy Campers stamp set, Debbie Owens creates her own pattern paper in fun summer colors. After die cutting her background using the Framework die set, she adds a teal strip, and a pink scallop-edge circle ( Circle Frames die set ). She stamps the little camper from the Cozy Campers stamp set and shades in orange and teal.  Her final touch is placing a mini flamingo in front of her camper and adding some orange twine!

Fluttering by with a happy hello by Diane features Monarchs, Butterflies, Land Borders, and Circle Frames by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #handmade
Diane Morales' card is just filled with gorgeous butterflies!  In lovely shades of lavenders, Diane distresses the background butterflies using the Butterflies stencil set. She creates the middle banner by using the Land Borders die set. What a creative way to extend your dies!  She cuts her circular white panel using the Circle Frames die set and adds those breathtaking blue butterflies from the Monarchs stamp and die set!  Amazing!

Oh la la by Sue T. features Newton Dreams of Paris and Bokeh Hearts by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #homemade
Sue T.  creates a romantic mood by using the Bokeh Hearts stencil  in shades of pink. She adds the French kitties from the Newton Dreams of Paris stamp set and cuts them using the coordinating die set.  Adding the hot air balloons and the diagonal striped paper provide the perfect accents!  Oh la la is right!

Enjoy life one wave at a time by Becky features Newton's Perfect Wave, Sunscape, and Circle Frames by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Ready for some more surfing?  Becky Noelle sets her beach scene  using the Sunscape stencil. Don't you love how her sun and waves have such beautiful gradient coloring?  She distresses a big wave on her center panel die cut using the Circle Frames die set. And for her final touch, she adds her surfing Newton from the Newton's Perfect Wave stamp and die set on a wobbler! How purr-fect is that?
