I'm a little prickly before my coffee by Amy features Cuppa Cactus, Happy Little Thoughts, Slimline Frames & Portholes, and Mugs by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking
Amy T. creates a sweet slimline card with its mint green card base and scallop-edged lavender layer 
die cut using a die from the Slimline Frames & Portholes die set. On this layer she uses the Mugs Stencil to add the subtle coffee mugs in lavender. She adds another mint layer with the trio of windows using the same die set.  She then adds the two cacti in their coffee mugs from the Cuppa Cactus stamp and die set. For her center window, she stamps the sentiment on lavender and adds a wreath from the Happy Little Thoughts stamp and die set for a frame.  A wonderful way to use the challenge colors!

I {heart} books by Claire features Newton's Book Club by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking
Are you a book lover?  Then you will love Claire Lamb's tall piles of colorful books!  Claire uses the Newton's Book Club stamp and die set. She does some masking to create her tall stack of books. Her black felines look so comfortable atop their books.  She uses the coordinating die set to cut out the sentiment.  Don't you love that sparkly heart?  What a fabulous way to mark one's place in a beloved book!

Thanks by Debbie features Heartfelt Blooms, Essential Alphabet, Frames & Flags, Heart Frames, Flower Trio by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking
Debbie Owens' card is filled with flowery thanks!  With the dark plum heart base die cut using the Heart Frames die set, she adds the flowery heart image from the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set. She colors the blooms and leaves in the challenge colors. Behind the heart are the green leaves die cut from the 
Flower Trio die set. A black banner die cut from the Frames & Flags die set sits atop the heart. Deb die cuts the sentiment using the letters from the Essential Alphabet die set.  Don't you love how the letters have the same image as the heart?  Fun!

I love all of you by Diane features Serene Stripes, Frames Squared, Heart Frames, Cultivated Cacti by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking
Diane Morales was inspired by the succulent images of the challenge badge and uses the Cultivated Cacti stamp and die set for her square card. She uses the Frames Squared die set to create her base and then uses the Serene Stripes stencil to create the background. She die cuts a white heart using the scallop-edged heart die from the Heart Frames die set. She stamps the sentiment and adds her pots of cacti for a beautiful card!  

You matter a whole bunch to me by Sue features Blooming Botanicals and Speech Bubbles by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #cardmaking
Sue T. designs a fab CAS card utilizing the large die from the Speech Bubbles die set. On it she has stamped the large image from the Blooming Botanicals stamp set and colored those amazing flowers in the challenge colors. She then stamps the sentiment below the speech bubble.  A creative way to use these products!
