You lift me up by Claire features Delightful Doxies, Holding Happiness, and Clouds by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #puppycards
Claire Lamb creates this darling mini-slimline card using lots of masking to keep it one layer. 
For all those amazing balloons, she uses the balloons from the Holding Happiness stamp set and ties them to the tail of the cute dachshund from the Delightful Doxies stamp set. Doesn't he look so cute floating among the fluffy clouds (Clouds stencil)?

Life is better at the beach by Debbie features Sunscape, Summer Moments, and Hills & Grass by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #summercards, #cardmaking
 Debbie Owens creates a beautiful beach scene inside an oval which she created using the Oval Frame die set. She combines the Sunscape stencil and the Hills & Grass stencil for her background and adds the beautiful lady from the Summer Moments stamp set wading into the ocean.  Lovely!

Squeeze the day by Diane features Circle Frames, Lemon Twist, and Basketweave by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #summercards, #cardmaking
Diane Morales adds so much texture to her one layer card using some texture paste and the Basketweave stencil. She leaves the center open by using the Circle Frames die set to create a mask.
Inside is a bright, yellow lemon from the Lemon Twist stamp set. Doesn't this look so refreshing?

Celebrate by Sue features Blooming Botanicals and Birthday Essentials by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking
Sue T. uses scoring lines to give her beautiful card more depth. She stamps the floral image from the Blooming Botanicals stamp set on the top and bottom of her card, and shades them in beautiful cool colors.  She pulls a sentiment from the \Birthday Essentials stamp set inside her scored lines. The added jewels add a bit of glam to this amazing card!

Amy Tollner creates this stunning slimline card by inking around the scallop-edged frame die from the Slimline Frames & Portholes die set. She then uses the Slimline Masking Circles & Squares stencil set to distress the trio of boxes with pretty pastel colors. She adds the delicate butterflies from the Beautiful Wings stamp set. What an amazing way to create the illusion of layers!
