Hope your day is loads of fun by Debbie features Newton Cleans Up, Houndstooth, and Slimline Masking Circles & Squares by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #cardmaking, #catcards, #birthdaycard
 Debbie Owens uses the  Newton Cleans Up stamp set to create a fun birthday card!  She uses the challenge colors with the Slimline Masking Circles & Squares stencil set and Houndstooth stencil to create a trio of squares with a fun pattern. She then adds the overworked kitties from the  Newton Cleans Up stamp set on each square.  She pulls the happy birthday sentiment from the Newton Loves Cake stamp set and combines it with the loads of fun sentiment to pull her fun card together!

Diane Morales uses the challenge colors to create a fabulous background using the Plaid stencil. She then adds a white circular element using the Circles Frames die set and subtly embosses the Floral Roundabout image from the  Floral Roundabout stamp set. She adds grass using the Land Borders die set . She then adds the sweet goat from the Bleat stamp and die set for her main attraction. She adds "You're the G.O.A.T" sentiment on an orange banner and heat embosses the remaining sentiment on the green grass.  A lovely way to celebrate a G.O.A.T friend!

Thanks so much by Sue T. features Blooming Botanicals,  Daffodils, and Slimline Masking Circles and Squares by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #springcard
Sue T. uses the Blooming Botanicals stamp set to create her white embossed background.  She then uses the Slimline Masking Circles and Squares stencils to go back and distress a trio of circles in green to create a lovely scalloped element down her card. She then layers on the beautiful yellow  and orange flowers from the Daffodils stamp set and die cut using the coordinating die. A black banner with embossed sentiment adds a dramatic touch to this very elegant card!

Squeeze the day by Amy features Lemon Twist, Slimline Frames & Portholes, Slimline Frames & Windows, and Framework by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking
Amy T. inspires with this refreshing citrus card!  Beginning with a bright yellow card base, she adds a white scallop-edged layer using the  Slimline Frames & Portholes die set. She then splatters with yellow, orange and green. She adds a bright yellow frame using the Slimline Frames & Windows die set. In those trio of windows, she adds a slices of lemon, orange, and lime using the Lemon Twist stamp and die set.  Her sentiment was stamped on the ticket using the die from the Framework die set.  The little slivers of peeling add a fun, festive element to this spectacular card!

Warm wishes by Claire features Peony Blooms and Winter Birds by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #cardmaking
Claire Lamb brings us this elegant card showcasing the Peony Blooms stamp set.  She lightly distresses yellow on her amazing pattern paper.  She adds the wonderfully colored flowers from the  Peony Blooms stamp set. She pulls the sentiment from the Winter Birds stamp set and embosses it in white on black card stock.  She adds gold sequins for a bit of glitz.  Seriously, wow!
