Trick or Treat by Kristi H. features Creepy Cameos by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #halloweencards
Kristi H. mixes a nice blend of spooky, yet elegant papers just perfect for her framed cameo.  This Bride-of Frankenstein cameo comes from the Creepy Cameos stamp and coordinating die set. Wonderfully done, Kristi!  FYI: the Creepy Cameos stamp and die set is retiring, so grab your set before it's gone.

Debbie's FAVE
Wishing you a sweet holiday by Meghan K. features Newton's Candy Cane by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #holidaycards, #catcards, #cardmaking, #christmascards
Meghan K. showcases Newton from the Newton's Candy Cane stamp and coordinating die set amazingly with her red and white color scheme.  All of her pattern papers work together for a festive and fun holiday card!

Diane's FAVE
Here's to you by Stacey K. features Newton Celebrates by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #newyearcards, #catcards
Stacey K.'s shiny, gold confetti backdrop works purr-fectly with her Newton who is celebrating with an overly large martini.  This party-goin' Newton is from the Newton Celebrates stamp and coordinating die set. A wonderfully designed card!

Sue's FAVE
I fall for autumn leaves by Priscilla features Fall-ing for You and Falling Leaves by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #coffeecards, #autumncards, #cardmaking,  #coffeelovers, #coffee_crafters
Priscilla Joseph uses the sentiment from the Fall-ing for You stamp set for the focal point and accents it with amazing touches.  She uses the Falling Leaves stencil set for softly distressed card base. She uses it again by distressing on a dark panel.  Pulling it all together is the fun stamped latte embellishment and the pretty plaid.  Nicely done!
