Debbie's FAVE
Happy Birthday by Priscilla features Gingham and Sunflower Days by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #birthdaycards, #summercards, #cardmaking
Priscilla designs this amazing card using the Gingham stencil and Sunflower Days stamp set. The checkered pattern in the daisies' centers mimics the gingham layer for a very striking look!  Wow!

Diane's FAVE
Nars Creative Corner uses the full-front image from the Blooming Botanicals stamp set for her background layer and lets it shine through by using vellum for the other layered element. She showcases two lilies by coloring them in shades of orange. What a crafty way to use this stamp set and sketch! 

Sue's FAVE
Fikreta uses the cute kitten from the Pocket Full of Happy (STAMPember exculusive 2020 NND set) for her bright card. The green pocket against the black paw print background is very striking!  A wonderful way to send paw-sitive thoughts!

Amy's FAVE
You make life a picnic by Gail features Woodland Picnic by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #summercards, #cardmaking
Winston from the retiring Woodland Picnic stamp set is looking so cute in Gail's sweet card.  She sets him in a hilly polka-dotted setting filled with sunshine atop an embossed white "blanket" that looks so inviting!  Adorable!

Claire's FAVE
Life is better in flip-flops by Karen features Flip-Flop Life by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #summercards, #cardmaking
Karen uses the Flip-Flop Life stamp and die set to create a wreath!  Such a fun, fabulous, and creative idea!  She stamps the sentiment inside the wreath. The dots on the flip-flops are a nice contrast to the gingham paper.  Anyone else inspired to try this idea?

Thank you for playing!
