Happy 4th of July by Dayna features Newton Loves Taco and Fireworks by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #catcards, #cardmaking, #4thofjulycards
Dayna's blue margarita really catches one's eye!  What a perfect way for Newton (Newton Loves Taco stamp and die set) to celebrate the 4th of July.  She captures the spirit of the holiday with her fireworks (Fireworks stencil) in the background and the red and white gingham paper.  

Diane's FAVE
Happy Surf Day by Debbie Frank features Beach Bound and Circle Frames by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #beachcards, #cardmaking
Debbie Frank's stamps surfboards in the challenge colors for her background which works perfectly with the two vehicles from the  Beach Bound stamp and die laden with their surfboards! Such a creative idea!

Andrea W. creatively colors the flowers from the Newton's Bloom stamp and die set in shades of blue and red.  She sets her potful of kitties and flowers on oval layers using the Oval Frames die set.  She pulls a sentiment from the Sending Hugs (retiring) stamp set. This card is sure to bring smiles the recipient's face!

Melanie H. makes a foldable card filled with the cutest trio of kittens from the Newton's 4th of July stamp and die set.  Don't you just love how Newton is rocketing across a starry night sky as the other Newton's wave their sparklers? 😻

Claire's FAVE
You are amazing by Ava features Circle Frames and Floral Roundabout by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #floralcards, #cardmaking
Ava creatively uses the challenge colors in a non-patriotic way. Her red, blue, and turquoise-blue flowers from the Floral Roundabout stamp set are striking, especially against the red circle die cut using the Circle Frames die set. Such an amazing card!
