Claire Lamb distresses an amazing rainy background for her trio of cats from the Newton's Rainy Day Trio stamp and coordinating die set. For raindrops, she adds sequins to her shaker card and adds the sentiment on a speech bubble using a die from the Speech Bubbles die set. She uses a die from the Framework die set to get the stitching on her center rectangle. A-meow-zing!
Debbie Owens uses the Cycling Friends stamp set to create her background which she layers with vellum and die cuts using the Framework die set. For her horizontal element, she adds red/white twine. She die cuts an oval using the Oval Frames die set and adds the same cycling critters image with a basket full of presents. So fun!
Diane Morales designs a little tropical haven for Newton (Aloha Newton stamp and die set) to take a much needed nap! To create this scene, she uses the Oval Frames die set for her frame, the Sky Borders die set for the beach, and the Clouds stencil for her puffy clouds. Diane pulls three designs from the Summertime paper pad that work perfectly with her design!
Sue T. also features the Aloha Newton stamp and die set. She showcases the darling and talented ukulele playing kitty decked out in her pink flower and lei! Sue creatively uses the Tropical Leaves stencil to create an oval of tropical leaves surrounding her kitty along with a splattering of pink hibiscus. Sue keeps her card CAS by simply scoring two lines in keeping with the sketch elements. Super creative!
Amy Tollner showcases one of the gnomes from the Gnome Garden stamp and die set. She creates a cloudy sky using the Clouds stencil and cutting it with a stitched oval die from the Oval Frames die set. She uses the butterfly paper from the Springtime paper pad and white embosses the sentiment on a black banner (Frames & Flags die set). Her silver strip adds a nice touch of glitter to this darling card!
