So many smiles start with you by Rebecca features Newton's Birdbath and Clouds by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Rebecca creates this darling scene using the Newton's Birdbath stamp and coordinating die set.  She uses the Clouds stencil for her big fluffy clouds. Then she adds some trees and layers of hills. She creates a little clear cutout for her sentiment instead of stamping it over her scene on the outside of her card.  

Crystal's FAVE
You've earned it. Relax and enjoy by Betty features Newton Dreams of Italy by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Betty creates three little scenes in her windows for her furry friends. Using the images from the Newton Dreams of Italy stamp and coordinating die set, Betty takes us from Pisa to Venice while exploring the food and culture of Italy!  A wonderful way to wish some a happy retirement!

Debbie's FAVE
Cat in Black by Papierelle features Newton's Summer Treats by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Papierelle creates a graphic scene for her duo of Cat in Black characters! She uses the Newton's Summer Treats stamp set and makes a mirror image of the Popsicle carrying feline. She adds a cityscape behind them. She individually stamps and cuts out the letters for the Cat in Black sentiment. Such a fun scene!

Diane's FAVE
Thinking of you by Farhana features Beautiful Wings by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Farhana creates a dimensional card with her different layers and foam tape. She distresses her clouds in a soft blue and her rolling hills in light green. She uses the Beautiful Wings stamp and colors each butterfly in a hue of a rainbow.  They look as if they are fluttering around this serene scene!

Sue's FAVE
Time to celebrate by Amy T. features Hardwood, Confetti, Newton Celebrates, Birthday Roundabout, and Banner Trio by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Amy T. creates a festive party scene filled with some fun-lovin' critters!  Starting with the Confetti stencil, she creates a festive backdrop. She then adds the panel flooring using the Hardwood stencil.  The party-goers are then added using the all the critters from the Newton Celebrates stamps and coordinating die set. She uses the party hats from the Newton Loves Cake stamp and die set to make the scene look more like a birthday party.  She stamps the sentiment from the Birthday Roundabout stamp set and die cuts using a banner from the Banner Trio die set and distressing the edges in gold!  Let the party commence!
