Hip Hip Hooray by Sue T. features Birthday Roundabout by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Sue T. takes a fun take on the sketch using an A2 card base. Sue embosses festive banners on her white card stock before adding three circles with the birthday images from the Birthday Roundabout stamp set. She adds her sentiment on a little banner!  A fabulous CAS birthday card!

Take delight in the small things by Becky features Hummingbird, Slimline Frames & Portholes and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
 Becky Noelle creates a flowery paradise for her hummingbird from the Hummingbird stamp set!  She uses the Slimline Frames & Portholes die set to create her pale blue and white layers. She then stamps lots of flowers from the Hummingbird stamp set and fussy cuts around them.  She stamps the sentiment on a small banner die cut from the Frames & Flags die set.  Ready for some bird watching?

You make life a picnic by Crystal features Woodland Picnic and Slimline Frames & Portholes by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
 Crystal Komara's card will have you packing your picnic basket and heading out for a fun lunch in the great outdoors!  Beginning with a kraft card base die cut using the scallop-edged frame from the Slimline Frames & Portholes, she adds the fun plaid picnic blanket in the circles then adds forest critters from the Woodland Picnic stamp and die set.  The little ants scurrying around the card are an adorable addition to the scene!

Let's Get Kraken by Debbie features Message in a Bottle, Waves, and Slimline Frames & Portholes by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
 Debbie Owens creates an ocean scene filled with drama as the kraken from theMessage in a Bottle stamp and die set slowly takes down a ship! This action can be seen from the trio of windows die cut using the Slimline Frames & Portholes die set.  Behind it all are the turquoise waves using the Waves stencil and distressed ink.  She finishes with a mini banner using the Frames & Flags die set and a little anchor.  Be wary seafaring friends!

Wishing you a spooky Halloween by Diane features Slimline Frames & Portholes and Creepy Cameos by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Diane Morales' spooky card is fabulously done!  Using the scallop-edged frame die  Slimline Frames & Portholes die set, she creates her base in card stock.  Then she adds her green background with it's corners stamped using the cameo frame  and bats from the Creepy Cameos stamp set.  She adds the male and female skeleton images from this same set and and die cuts using the coordinating die set. A creepy card with a touch of elegance!
