Have a Brew-tiful Day by Amy features Frames & Flags, Circle Frames, Newton's Mug, Love Cafe, Mugs, and Time for Coffee by Newton's Nook Designs; #Newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #coffeelovers, #catcards, #cardmaking
Amy Tollner fills her card with coffee delights. She begins by filling her card base with lots of coffee mugs using the Mugs stencil and die cut using the Frames & Flags die set. She continues by die cutting a circle using the Circle Frames die set  and layering coffee images using the Newton's Mug stamps and die set and the Love Café stamp and die set. She stamps her sentiment from the Time for Coffee stamp set on a banner.  A perfect card for any coffee-lover!

Love is in the air and it feels like coffee by Claire features Newton's Mug and Love Cafe by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #catcards, #cardmaking, #coffeelovers
Claire Lamb continues the coffee theme with her amazing CAS card. Like Amy, she uses the Newton's Mug stamps and die set and the Love Cafe stamp and die set. She places them on her lightly distressed background and stamps the sentiment below. A wonderful design!

Debbie's card features Snow Angel Newton, Snowfall, Meowy Christmas, and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #catcards, #cardmaking
 Debbie Owens goes with a snowy theme for her card. She uses strips of red houndstooth paper from the Meowy Christmas paper pad for her background. She uses the Frames & Flags die set for her kraft rectangle. She adds a white banner filled with snowflakes using the Snowfall stencil. Her star attraction is the playful kitten from the Snow Angel Newton. Oh snow much fun!

Happy New Year by Diane features Newton Celebrates and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #catcards, #newyearcards, #cardmaking
Diane Morales celebrates 2022 with this festive shape card using the Frames & Flags die set. She repeatedly stamps the 'celebrate' sentiment on half the cream layer. She adds the celebrating critters from the Newton Celebrates stamp and die set. Don't they look darling as they ring in the new year?  

Thanks snow much by Sue features Snowman Roundabout, Plaid, and Circle Frames by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #thankyoucards
Sue T. also goes with a snowy theme with this darling card!  She uses the Plaid stencil for her background. She uses the Circle Frames die set to create her scalloped circle. Using the Snowman Roundabout stamp set (die cut with the Circle Frames die set), she accents her snowmen with gray, cream, and red. A wonderful way to send thanks!

Use the colors: Candy Red, Cream, 

Cocoa Brown, and Pewter Gray.
