Thank you by Donna H. features Porch Swing Friends and Peony Blooms by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking
Donna H. elected to use the Porch Swing Friends stamp and coordinating die set for her amazing card.  Her beautiful coloring and white space on the image really catches one's eye.  Paired with the rustic wood grain paper and trio of brads, her card delights with its country charm.  To make it a thank you card, she pulls a sentiment from the Peony Blooms  retired stamp set.

Debbie's FAVE
Home made by Irene features Made from Scratch, Fancy Edges Tag, and Holiday Home by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #holidaycards
Irene's card will have you reaching for your baking tools to whip up some holiday treats!  Using the Made from Scratch stamp and coordinating die set, she uses the rolling pins for the sketch's horizontal stripe.  Having the other utensils around the oval edge draws the eye to the sentiment.  She also created a sweet matching tag using the Fancy Edges Tag die set and the Holiday Home stamp set.  

Diane's FAVE
Happy birthday to you by Jenny features Birthday Party, Birthday Oval, and Oval Frames by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #birthdaycards, #cardmaking
Jenny's use of bold, bright colors makes her card so cheerful and perfect to celebrate a birthday! She uses the Oval Frames die set to create her scalloped oval frame using paper from the Birthday Party paper pad. She uses another fun paper from the same pad for her horizontal stripe.  She wonderfully colors the birthday elements from the Birthday Oval stamp set in those bright, cheerful colors!

Sue's FAVE
Hello sunshine by Amy features Framework, Sunflower Days, and Houndstooth by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #autumncards, #cardmaking
Amy Tsuruta's clean, crisp card with its subtle coloring makes for such a fresh, beautiful card. She creates the white postage-edged frame using the Framework die set and attaches to a white card base.  She continues with the white on white with her use of the white ribbon.  On her oval, she creates a light blue background using the Houndstooth stencil. She lightly shades the sprig of sunflowers from the Sunflower Days stamp and die set. Her white on black sentiment makes for a nice pop of contrast.  

Amy's FAVE
Dayna's card features Newton Loves Tacos by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #cardmaking, #newtonsnook, #catcards
Dayna had the brilliant idea of making our taco-lovin' Newton from the Newton Loves Tacos stamp and die set into a spinning element!  How fun and clever!  Her choice of paper with its Mexican textile-like patterns works amazingly well with this Newton image.  Fant√°stico!
