When life gives you lemons by Claire by Lemon Twist by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking
Claire Lamb shows us how what happens when life gives you lemons...a fabulous card!  With a partially distressed teal background, she adds a trio of lemons using the Lemon Twist stamp and coordinating die set.  She adds a sprinkling of yellow sequins for added zest!  A very refreshing card!

Meow's it going by Debbie features Hills & Grass, Captivated Kittens, and Sky Scene Builder by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #catcards, #cardmaking
 Debbie Owens creates a fun background using the Hills & Grass stencil. She distresses some wavy stripes in the challenge colors and then cuts them into 1/2 inch stripes to create a fun design. She then adds clouds using the dies from the Sky Scene Builder die set. She adds the playful kitten from the Captivated Kittens stamp set.  Such a fun, colorful card!

Ride with the waves by Diane features Newton's Perfect Wave, Tropical Leaves, and Circle Frames by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #tropicalcards, #cardmaking, #catcards
Diane Morales applies the challenge colors on her leafy backdrop created using the Tropical Leaves stencil. Don't they look fabulous?  The little kitten sports a pink bikini with her tropical surfboard. This feline is from the Newton's Perfect Wave stamp and coordinating die set. She stamps the sentiment on a circular panel die cut using the Circle Frames die set.  So, so cute!

Make a wish by Sue T. features Hummingbird and Basketweave by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #cardmaking, #newtonsnook, #birdcards, #stencil
Sue T. gives us some natural beauty with her hummingbird and flowers!  She uses the Basketweave stencil to create a nice subtle backdrop. The beautiful hummingbird colored in the challenge colors is from the Hummingbird stamp and coordinating die set and is enjoying a bit of nectar from the yellow flowers.  The bold sentiment from the Birthday Essentials stamp set is a fabulous way to wish someone a happy birthday!  Wonderful CAS card, Sue!

Mahalo by Amy features Aloha Newton, Tropical Leaves, Circle Frames, and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #catcards, #cardmaking, #tropicalcards
Amy Tollner also inspires with her use of the Tropical Leaves stencil. Her leaves make a perfect background for her white kitten from the Aloha Newton stamp and coordinating die set. These colors work wonderfully for all those tropical flowers and leaves!  Amy also uses the Frames & Flags die set for her banner and the Circle Frames die set on which she adds her kitten. A piece of tropical paradise!

Use the colors--teal, yellow, green, and white.
