Today I'm sharing some more inspiration for our current challenge! 

Life's better in the garden by Diane features Gnome Garden, Dainty Daisies, Fence, and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #cardmaking
Diane Morales delights with her bright, festive card. Starting with a bright yellow card base, she adds a scallop-edged frame using the Frames & Flags die set. She adds bold daisies from the Dainty Daisies stamp and coordinating die set. She adds the fence for her horizontal stripe using the Fence die set. The star of her card is the newly released flower-carrying gnome from the Gnome Garden stamp and die set.  Diane colors the gnome in shades of blue that adds a nice pop of color against the yellow.  A fabulous combination of stamp sets!

Wishing you a paw-some birthday by Sue T. features Paw-some Birthday by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #birthdaycard, #puppycards
Sue T. designs a festive birthday card filled with bold patterns and bright colors!  She showcases the present-lovin' puppy from the Paw-some Birthday stamp and die set. Sue's use of striped and polka dotted papers coordinate wonderfully with the colorful packages!  A fun way to celebrate a birthday!

Guess what? by Amy features Oink, Neigh, Moo, Cluck, Fence, Land Borders, Clouds by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #farmcards
Amy Tollner sets her farm scene on a sky blue card base. She then uses the Clouds stencil to create her fluffy clouds on both her horizontal and vertical panels. She adds the fence die cut using the Fence die set. She adds green grass and rolling hills die cut using the Land Borders die set. In the background is a traditional red barn from the Moo stamp and die set. Amy adds farm critters from the Oink stamp and die set, the Cluck stamp and die set, and the Neigh stamp and die set. She tucks little flowers on the horse and the pig using the flowers from the Woodland Spring stamp and die set.  The sentiments in the speech bubbles adds a bit of humor to this fabulous card!

Sending hugs by Claire features Newton Unwinds and Meow by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #cardmaking, #catcards
Claire Lamb creates a fabulous CAS card packed with cuteness!  Claire begins by using glitter paste and the Meow Stencil. She then adds a scallop-edged frame on which she adds the fun-lovin' kitten from the Newton Unwinds stamp and die set. Claire's ability to color black cats is remarkable as is her variegated yarn in warm colors.  Sweet!

You're so kind by Debbie features Paw-tumn Newton, Sunflower Days, Framework, and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #catcards
 Debbie Owens fills her card with beautiful sunflowers!  Beginning with a kraft card base, she adds a green horizontal strip.  She then repeatedly stamps the sunflowers from the Sunflower Days stamp set which she then die cuts using the rounded-edge frame die from the Frames & Flags die set. She then creates a black frame using a die from the Framework die set. She adds vellum behind the frame. Her main attraction is the kitten from the Paw-tumn Newton stamp set. The blue bird adds a pop of playful color.
