Embrace your inner kitten by Claire L. features Newton Unwinds and Meow by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #cardmaking
Claire L. creates an amazing CAS card by partially distressing the background using the Meow stencil in shades of orange to yellow. She wonderfully colors the black kitten a top of his big purple ball of yarn from the Newton Unwinds stamp and die set. Her sentiment is embossed in white on a black banner that really pulls the card together wonderfully!  Sweet!

Becky's FAVE
Have a be-witching good time by Amy T. features Clouds, Spooky Street, Witchy Newton, Halloween Trio, and Land Borders by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #halloween
Amy T.'s spooky background uses the Clouds stencil she stamps the haunted house and gravestones from the Spooky Street stamp set to add to her spooky scene.  From black card stock she adds the landscaped die cutting hills and grass using the Land Borders die set.  Front and center is the kitty in her fashionable boot from the Witchy Newton stamp and die set. Her final touch of bats die cut using the bat from Halloween Trio die set.

Crystal's FAVE
Happy Halloween by Priscilla features Newton's Costume Party, Flying Bats, and Slimline Frames & Windows by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnok, #cardmaking, #halloween
Priscilla's use of the Flying Bats stencil to create a spook-tacular background for her trio of kittens from the Newton's Costume Party stamp and die set. Aren't they darling in their fun costumes?  She places everything atop a purple scalloped frame die cut using the  Slimline Frames & Windows die set.  A wonderful use of the challenge colors!

Debbie's FAVE
Cat's don't lie around lazily, they beautify the room by Papierelle features Newton's Naptime by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #cardmaking
Papierelle creates a most amazing window scene!  Her bricked wall and vellum window is gorgeously colored.  Look closely at you'll see the outline of a sleeping kitty.  Then open the card up and you'll see our sweet Newton on a pile of quilts and blankets from the Newton's Naptime stamp set. What a fabulously designed card to showcase a cat's favorite pastime!  A nap!

Diane's FAVE
Happy Birthday by Farhana features Birthday Roundabout by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #cardmaking
Farhana took the Halloween-like colors of the challenge in a different direction. She created a bold birthday card using the Birthday Roundabout stamp set. She embossed the image in white and distressed the rectangular strips in orange, purple, and yellow. She places them strategically on a black card based. The birthday sentiment is embossed in white and looks striking on the black base!
