Cheers by Dawn features Flirty Flamingos and Slimline Frames & Portholes by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #flamingocards, #cardmaking
Dawn showcases the Flirty Flamingos (Retired) stamp and die set with this tall slimline card. She uses the Slimline Frames & Portholes die set to cut the pink and white striped background.  Then she adds hearts in different tropical papers as well as glittery paper.  She adds a splattering of flamingos from the retired 
Flirty Flamingos  stamp and die set and the die cut cheers sentiment (Cocktail Mixer die set).  All of this makes for a pretty in pink flamingo card filled with love!

What the cluck by Amy features Cluck, Banner Trio, Heart Frames & Circle Frames by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #chickencards, #cardmaking
Amy creates a shape card that is just amazing!  She features one of the roosters from the 
Cluck stamp set on a scallop-edged circle from the  Circle Frames die set. She then die cuts several hearts using the Heart Frames die set. She coordinates the colors to match the darling pattern paper.  She uses a die from the  Banner Trio  die set for her sentiment.  A very creative shape card to celebrate one's birthday!

You're just my type by Priscilla features My Type and Tumbling Hearts by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #valentinescards
Priscilla Joseph uses the Tumbling Hearts stencil to create a graphic background for the typewriter from the My Type stamp set. She coordinates a pattern paper that looks like it's been type written. The little piece of paper with 'You're just my type" typed on it looks like it's been pulled from the machine! So cute!

Thank mew by Kimberly features Heart Frames, Love & Meows, and Heartfelt Meows by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #catcards, #thankyoucards, #cardmaking
Kimberly's teal background and cascading hearts of different sizes is just darling!  She uses the Heart Frames die set to create her hearts as well as the Love & Meows paper pad. Her biggest heart has the image from the Heartfelt Meows stamp set. She lightly shades her kitties with red accents. A fabulous way to say, "Thank mew!"

Claire's FAVE
XOXO by Melissa features Circle Frames, Heart Frames, and Love & Meows by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #treatbox, #valentinesbox
Melissa creates this fabulous heart-shaped treat box that is filled with yummy goodies!  She uses the Heart Frames die set to create the bases and adds the fun paper from the Love & Meows paper pad. She cuts a circular tag using the Circle Frames die set and uses the little heart from this set to allow the paper to show through!  A fun ribbon with little hearts adds a perfect accent to this Valentine's box.  Nicely done!
