Diane's FAVE
Happy pumpkin everything by Tracy Grauer features Autumn Paper Pad, Autumn Oval, and Oval Frames by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #autumncards, #pumpkincards, #fallcards, #cardmaking
Tracy Grauer  is not only our randomly chosen winner of the $20 store credit, but she is also Diane's fave! Her black background and scallop-edged oval (Oval Frames die set) add a nice contrast to the orange gingham paper pulled from the Autumn paper pad.  Inside her center oval is the beautifully colored image from the Autumn Oval stamp set. The added twine and pearls add nice touches of texture!  So lovely!

Sue's FAVE
Truly grateful by Kristi features Autumn Leaves and Shades of Autumn; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #autumncards, #fallcards, #cardmaking
Kristi uses the 
Autumn Leaves die set in a beautiful way.  With a black background, she inlays different leaves in the challenge colors. She then pulls a sentiment from the retired Shades of Autumn stamp set.  The overall effect is so bold and very stunning!

Amy's FAVE
Happy Halloween by Amy Gross features Spooky Skeletons by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #halloweencards, #cardmaking
Amy Gross showcases lots of bones in her fabulous card!  She uses all the skeletal images from the Spooky Skeletons stamp set to create her background.  She then stamps the little pumpkin images from the same set in orange and the stars in yellow!  Fabulously done, Amy!

Claire's FAVE
Wishing you purr-fect fall day by Andrea features Newton's Crate by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #autumncards, #fallcards, #catcards, #pumpkincards, #cardmaking
Andrea creates this lovely card that has a nice cozy, rustic feel.  She showcases the darling kitten (colored like Andrea's very own fur baby) from the Newton's Crate stamp and coordinating die set. She then adds paper with a linen pattern that is distressed and stamped with stitching.  The brown gingham paper continues the coziness of this charming card!

Debbie's FAVE
Fleece Navidad by KT Fit Kitty features Fleece Navidad, Pines & Holly, and Ornament Shaker by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #christmascard, #sheepcard, #cardmaking
KT Fit Kitty shows off her creative thinking with this very non-traditional Christmas card!  She embosses snowflakes on her cream card base, then adds a pretty pattern paper in the challenge colors. She adds that sweet lamb from the Fleece Navidad stamp and die set on an orange ornament using the Ornament Shaker die set. The black bow was cut using the Pines & Holly die set. For her black element, she embosses the sentiment on a little banner.  So lovely!
