Happy Birthday by Ishani features Aloha Newton by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #catcard, #cardmaking
Ishani has a knack of mixing and matching stamps, dies, and stencils to make a delightful card that still has a clean, crisp look.  On a lavender pattern paper, Ishani adds a layer that has green and yellow dots. Her kitty from the Aloha Newton stamp set looks beautiful in the tropical flowers and foliage.  She then adds a die cut sun and some fabulous clouds.  Such a cheerful birthday card!

Amy's FAVE
A little birdie told me by A. Rose features Newton's Birthday Flutter and Newton's Curious Christmas by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #catcard

A. Rose designs this bold, clean card that depicts a cat's favorite pastime--watching birdies!  Her white and gray kitty from the Newton's Curious Christmas stamp set has been fussy cut.  She is sitting on a window sill watching a birdie from the Newton's Birthday Flutter stamp set.  She white embosses the sentiment on black. Opening the card, you'll find a humorous surprise!  She has added the naughty kitty from the Newton's Birthday Flutter stamp set and the sentiment, "so I ate him!"  This card is sure to have the recipient giggling!  


Claire's FAVE
Thinking of You by Donna features Peony Blooms by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #floralcards, #cardmaking
Donna adds the perfect embellishments to showcase her lavender flowers from the Peony Blooms stamp and cut using the coordinating die set. The Swiss dotted ribbon and stitching add such a beautiful shabby-chic feel.  Her yellow and white watercolor backdrop make for a soft, beautiful background. Wonderfully done!

Debbie's FAVE
Happy Easter to my favorite peeps by Priscilla Joseph features Newton's Peeps by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #eastercards, #cardmaking, #catcards
Priscilla Joseph begins with a cloudy sky of yellow and bright green grass.  She has hidden a couple chicks and egg amid the grass.  She adds a die cut that mimics chicken-wire fence.  In front is the sweet kitty from the Newton's Peeps stamp and die set. The pretty purple basket with the green trim is perfect for the yellow peeps!  Such a fun, clever card!

Diane's FAVE
You brighten my life by Kristi features Daffodils and Basketweave by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #springcards, #cardmaking
Kristi brings us card that is just beautiful with its arrangements of elements. She uses the Basketweave stencil to create her spring green background. She uses an oval die to create the central element.  She then stamps, colors and die cuts the flowers and butterflies from the Daffodils stamp and die set. The overall effect is just beautiful!
