Oh Happy Day by Sue features Dainty Daisies, Floral Roundabout, Slimline Masking Circles and Squares, and Clouds by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Sue T. uses the newly released Slimline Masking Circles and Squares stencil set and the Clouds stencil to create two panels of beautiful lavender clouds.  A beautiful backdrop for her fresh yellow daisies from the 
Dainty Daisies stamp and die cut using the coordinating die.  She pulls the sentiment from the Floral Roundabout stamp set.  

Hare mail by Amy features Slimline Frames & Portholes, Bunny Tails, and Hare Mail by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #eastercards, #cardmaking
Sparkly bunnies in the background provides the perfect backdrop for this trio of bunnies in their colorful envelopes!  Amy T. begins this darling card using just one layer of the Bunny Tails stencil with glitter paste! Using the scallop-edge frame from the Slimline Frames & Portholes die, she cuts her shimmery, bunny backdrop and adheres to a lavender card base.  She then stamps the bunnies from the Hare Mail mini stamp set and cuts using the coordinating die.  She colors each envelope in one of the challenge colors while leaving the bunnies white.  Once adhered, she adds the punny sentiment. Cuteness times three!

Sleep well. Dream Big by Claire features Baa, Circle Frames, and Bubbly by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #cardmaking
Claire Lamb uses the Circle Frames die set to create a fabulous crescent moon and shadow that works perfectly with the newly released Baa stamp and die set.  On her moon, she subtly adds some craters using the Bubbly stencil and lightly distressing.  How clever!  She adds some clouds, also lightly distressed, for her darling lambs.  Her fun coloring of the lambs makes them look super fluffy.  A few scattered, white stars finishes her scene.  The sentiment pulls her sleepy scene together for a wonderfully designed card!

Meow-ing in the rain by Debbie features Newton's Rainy Trio and Raindrops by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #catcards, #cardmaking, #springcards
 Debbie Owens' trio will having you singing in the rain!  She begins her CAS card using texture paste with the Raindrops stencil to create subtle raindrops in the background.  She then stamps and fussy cuts the trio of kittens from the Newton's Rainy Trio stamp set and uses colored pencils to color their rain jackets and boots in the challenge colors.  Glossy Accent was added to the boots and umbrellas.  A bright, cheerful card to sing in the new season!

To some bunny special by Diane features Hoppy Greeetings, Basketweave, Frames Squared, Heart Frames, and Land Borders by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #eastercards, #cardmaking
Diane Morales utilizes the Frames Squared die set to create her card filled with Easter cheer. She uses a lavender card based and the Basketweave stencil to distress the basket design. Shen then die cuts the center using the Heart Frames die set and pops it up with some dimensional foam.  She creates the Easter scene using the Land Borders die set for the lime green grass and the bunny from the newly released Hoppy Greetings stamp set. She cuts the image using the coordinating die set. She pulls one of the fun sentiments from the set to place on the sign. A fabulous design to send Easter wishes!
