Can I stowaway? by Debbie features Stowaway Newton, Frames & Flags, Newton Dreams of London, Newton Dreams of Paris, Newton Dreams of Italy, and Newton Dreams of New York by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Looks like this kitty is scheming to do some international travels!  Debbie Owens stamps iconic images on her Kraft card base using Newton Dreams of Italy, Newton Dreams of Paris, Newton Dreams of New York, and Newton Dreams of London stamp sets. She adds a red panel die cut using the rounded-corner rectangle from the Frames & Flags die set. Her stow-away kitty from the Stowaway Newton stamp set looks quite comfortable in the suitcase. The added tickets from pattern paper mimic the sketch banners and add a fun travel touch to this darling card!

Happy Paw-tumn by Diane features Frames & Flags and Paw-tumn Newton by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Diane Morales combines sunflowers, gingham, and a kitty to make this darling card! Set atop the gingham  background, she adds an orange and a golden rod yellow banner die cut using the Frames & Flags die set. The color of her banners coordinate perfectly with the sunflower and pumpkin from the Paw-tumn Newton stamp set. She adds a splash of contrast by coloring the birdie and collar in pale blue. She uses the Paw-tumn Newton coordinating die set to cut it out.  

Give thanks by Sue T. features Pumpkin Patch and Fall Roundabout by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Sue T.'s card is a wonderful example of the power of a stencil!  She uses distress inks in autumn colors and the Pumpkin Patch  stencil to create a striking background. She stamps a sentiment from Fall Roundabout in black.  She adds banners in a plaid and polka dots that coordinate wonderfully with the distressed panel. 

Happy pumpkin spice season by Becky features Pumpkin Latte, Houndstooth, and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
 Becky Noelle creates a white on white autumn card that is just so pretty. With her textured white card base using the Houndstooth stencil, she adds a white panel die cut using the Frames & Flags die set. She stamps the coffee-lovin' ladies from the Pumpkin Latte stamp set and colors them in lovely autumn colors. She adds ribbon for her two banners. Very elegant for the upcoming pumpkin spice season!

Happy Halloween by Crystal features Newton's Boo-tiful Night, Flying Bats, Land Borders, and Framework by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Crystal Komara creates a brightly colored Halloween card that'll definitely bring a smile to your face! She uses the Flying Bats stencil and distresses bats in purple and yellow. She adds her panel to a black scallop-edged frame die cut using the Framework die set. She uses the Land Borders die set to add a small hill in chartreuse. At last she adds the kitty in his pumpkin patch from the Newton's Bootiful Night stamp and coordinating die set. Her pumpkins in chartreuse, purple, and orange are so delightful!
