Enjoy your day by Debbie features Winston's Lake House, Mountains, Petite Clouds, and Snow Globe Scenes by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #outdoorcards, #cardmaking  
 Debbie Owens creates this cozy outdoorsy scene!  For her lower horizontal element, Deb creates a lake with some cattails for Winston and his pal from the Winston's Lake House stamp set to paddle about in. When they get tired, they can return to their cabin also from the Winston's Lake House stamp set with the mountains (Mountains stencil) and pine forest (Snow Globe Scenes stamp set) in the background.  
 Floating above those mountains are lots of puffy clouds (Petite Clouds stencil).  What a little piece of paradise!

You're my favorite treat by Diane showcases Frameworks, Trick or Treat Kittens, and Sky Borders by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #catcards, #cardmaking, #halloweencards
Diane Morales is showcasing the newly released Trick or Treat Kittens stamp and coordinating die set. This fluffy kitten is sure to become a Halloween favorite!  She creates the postage-edge base layer using the Frameworks die set. For her sketch stripe, she creatively uses the Sky Borders die set for her scalloped stripes.  The lavender, black and splash of orange make for a darling Halloween card!

May all your dreams come true by Sue features Naptime and Cascading Stars by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #catcards, #cardmaking, #stenciling
Sue T. creates this sleepy card showcasing the napping Newton from the Newton's Naptime stamp set. As her sweet kitten catches some zzz's on a pile of pastel blue blankets, stars in the background gently fall about. Those stars were created using the Cascading Stars stencil. Anyone else want to snuggle up with this little calico?  

Thank you by Amy features Peony Blooms by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #springcard, #cardmaking, #floralcards
Amy Tollner showcases the Peony Blooms stamp and coordinating die set to create this elegant card!  The combination of polka dots, stripes, and touches of gold add up to a perfect backdrop for Amy's softly colored and very beautiful peonies!  

duuuunnnn duun… duuunnnnnnnn dun...

On a bright and sunny day (Sunscape stencil), under peaceful teal waves (Sky Borders die set) awaits...

Hope your day doesn't bite by Claire features Shark Bites, Sky Borders, and Sunscape by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #sharkcards, #stenciling, #cardmaking
a very hungry shark (Shark Bites stamp and die set) just waiting to jump out at you!  Yep, Claire Lamb creates an interactive shark card that might have you scared to open your mail!  Thanks, Claire, for showing how to use the Inky Paws sketch to make an interactive card!
