Holiday tags by Debbie features Dear Santa, Meowy Christmas, and Fancy Edges Tags by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #holidaytags
 Debbie Owens makes a trio of holiday tags using papers from the Meowy Christmas pad. She uses the Fancy Edges Tag die set for her Kraft tag bases. Then she then adds a Santa Claus image and sentiment using the Dear Santa stamp set. She adds jute and twine bows to finish each tag.  Tags are an excellent way to use up your scraps of pattern paper!  (Visit Deb's blog for more tags!)

Have yourself a dairy little Christmas by Diane features Dairy Christmas,  Meowy Christmas, and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #farmcards, #christmascards, #holidaycards
Diane Morales pulls out the Meowy Christmas pad and finds the red-on-red gingham design that works wonderfully with her farm critters from the Dairy Christmas stamp and die set. She a banner using a die from the Frames & Flags die set which she trims down a bit.  Super cute!


Time fur presents mew by Sue features Meowy Christmas, Newton's Stocking, and Speech Bubbles by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #catcards, #christmascards, #holidaycards
Sue T. also pulls out the newly released Meowy Christmas pad.  She paper pieces her stocking with the argyle design.  That sweet stocking stuffed with Newton is from Newton's Stocking stamp and die set. She stamps her sentiment on a speech bubble from the Speech Bubbles die set. The added stripes of holiday fun gives her card extra holiday fun!

Peach, love & Joy by Amy features Meowy Christmas, Heartfelt Holidays, Heart Frames, Banner Trio, and Pines & Holly by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnooko, #cardmaking, #christmascards, #holidaycards
Amy Tollner is also drawn to the red-on-red gingham from the Meowy Christmas pad.  She takes an elegant approach using the image from the Heartfelt Holidays stamp set and cut out using the Heart Frames die set . She adds pine boughs and holly leaves using the Pines & Holly die set. She adds her white heat-embossed sentiment on a green banner die cut using the Banner Trio die set. 

Wishing you peace and joy by Claire features Land Borders and Holiday Home by Newton's  Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #christmascards, #holidaycards
Claire Lamb creates her background using the Land Borders die set. She then adds those precious children heading towards home with their holiday tree. This image as well as the house in the background is from the Holiday Home stamp and die set.  The sentiment is just perfect for this serene card!
