Yee-haw by Claire features Newton Rides West, Speech Bubbles, and Land Borders by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #carcards, #cardmaking
Claire Lamb plays with the Newton Rides West stamp and die set (retiring, so grab your set fast!) to create this fabulous western scene.   Her beautiful sunset and sandy desert ground, dievcut using the Land Borders die set, provide a wonderful backdrop for the horse-ridin' kitten!  She uses one of the speech bubbles from the  Speech Bubbles die set for the second circle of the sketch!  

 Debbie Owens uses coffee-themed papers for the rectangular elements of the sketch. She pulls the coffee-lovin' kitten in his big mug from the Newton's Mug stamp set for a circular element.  She, too, pulls a speech bubble for her second circle die cut using the Speech Bubbles die set. The little cat face on the mug and glossy accents are purr-fect touches for added interest!

Have a blast by Diane features Slimline Frames & Portholes, Sunscape, Sky Scene Builder, Cosmic Newton, and Birthday Roundabout by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #catcards
Diane Morales stretches the sketch into a slimline card. She uses the scallop-edged die from the Slimline Frames & Portholes die set to create her sky scene.  She uses the Sunscape stencil for the sun and rays. She adds some fluffy clouds using the Sky Scene Builder die set.  Newton from the Cosmic Newton stamp and die set looks fabulous in his lavender rocket ship!  Diane uses sentiments from the Birthday Roundabout stamp set. She finishes with some shimmery white stars!  

Heartfelt Thanks by Sue features Heartfelt Roses, Roses, and Heart Frames by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #thankyoucards, #cardmaking
Sue T. creates a beautiful thank you card loaded with yellow roses!  She outlines the roses from the Heartfelt Roses stamp set in yellow and die cuts using the coordinating die from the Heart Frames die set.  She adds the roses from the Roses stamp and coordinating die set and colors them in shades of yellow.  She stamps the sentiment and die cuts using the rounded banner from the Banner Trio die set. The yellow polka dotted paper adds even more cheerfulness to this beautifully designed card!

Celebrate today by Amy features Woodland Spring, Circle Frames, Petite Flowers, Hills & Grass, Newton's Picnic, and Happy Little Thoughts by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking
Amy T. creates this sweet card filled with spring flowers!  She uses the Petite Flowers stencil to create the pastel flower panel paired with glitter panel for a wonderful backdrop.  She uses the Circle Frames die set to create her two circular elements.  She uses the Hills & Grass stencil to distress the grass on the large circle before adding the sweet fawn from the Woodland Spring stamp and die set. For her scalloped-circle she adds the floral sprigs, also from the Woodland Spring stamp and die set.  She pulls a sentiment from the Happy Little Thoughts stamp set, and butterflies from the Newton's Picnic stamp and die set.  Wonderfully designed!
