Have yourself a merry little Cocktail by Diane features Christmas Cocktails, Confetti, and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #christmascards, #newtonsnook, #cocktailcards
Ready for some holiday cocktails?  Diane Morales' card will definitely get you ready for some holiday merriment!  Her background created using the  Confetti stencil gives her card a fun, party feel. She continues by adding banners in coordinating colors using the Frames & Flags die set. No party is complete without festive drinks? So she uses the Christmas Cocktails stamp and coordinating die set to add a trio of drinks. Merry cocktail to everyone!

May your Christmas bring you joy, love and laughter by Sue features Framework, Snow Much Cheer, and Snowfall Roundabout by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #christmascards, #wintercards, #snowmancards, #cardmaking
Sue T. creates a wintry wonderland to bring good wishes to your holiday season!  She uses the Snowfall Roundabout stamp set to create her custom pattern paper. She adds it to the postage-edge base layer die cut using the Framework die set. Her snowy couple from the Snow Much Cheer stamp and coordinating  die set look amazing in the soft pastel colors!  What a fabulous way to wish someone joy, love, and laughter!  

Get into the holiday spirit by Amy features Christmas Cocktails, Meowy Christmas, and Pines & Holly by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #holidaycards, #christmascards, #cocktailcards, #cardmaking
Need another card to get you into the holiday spirit?  Amy Tollner's bright card might inspire you to reach into your liquor cabinet to duplicate her delicious-looking cocktails!  Using a plaid paper from the Meowy Christmas paper pad, she adds a trio of cocktails from the Christmas Cocktails stamp and coordinating die set. She die cuts the shimmery red bow from the Pines & Holly die set. Don't you just love the yellow and red together?  Cheers to you!

Joyful tidings by Claire features Winter Birds, Heartfelt Holidays, and Bubbly by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #holidaycards, #christmascards, #cardmaking, #birdcards
Using tree branches to mimic the sketch, Claire Lamb features a duo of beautiful birds from the Winter Birds stamp and coordinating  die set. She uses the Bubbly stencil to add a subtle design to her wintry skyline with some snowflakes gently falling.  She selects the "Joyful Tidings" sentiment from the Heartfelt Holidays stamp set to send her holiday message!  Just so beautiful!

Happy holidays by Debbie features Dairy Christmas and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #christmascards, #cardmaking
Set amidst soft pastel papers, Debbie Owens showcases the farm critters from the Dairy Christmas stamp set. She uses the scallop-edged die from the Frames & Flags die set for her base layer, then mixes and matches papers for a sweet holiday card! Happy holidays, indeed!
