Belated Snail Birthday Card by Jess Gerstner | In Slow Motion Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #snailmail #birthday
Here is an adorable snail mail card by Jess. She did a ton of fun paper piercing she did with our In Slow Motion stamp set! I love that fun pattern on the snail and his shell!
Snappy Birthday Shark Card by Yukari Yoshioka |  Stamp sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #shark
  Here is a fun shark Birthday card by Yukari using our sketch! I love how she created two cute sharky scenes with our Shark Bites Stamp set!

Seahorse Card by Larissa Heskett | Tranquil Tides Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #seahorse
Check out this beautiful under the sea scene that Larissa created for this challenge! She used our fun little Seahorse from the Tranquil Tides stamp set and cut him out with the coordinating Tranquil Tides die set! I love the added dimension she gave him with the white dots and the googlie eye!!
Whale in bottle Christmas Card by Samantha Mann |  Stamp sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #bottle
Here is a cute early christmas card by Samantha. I love the two bottle cut-outs with fish inside! Such a fun idea! She used our Message in a Bottle Stamp Set and Message in a Bottle Dies along with the SEAsons Greetings stamp set. 

Cat Birthday Card by Crafty Math-Chick  | Newton's Antics Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #cat #stamp
Here is a fun birthday card by Crafty Math-Chick! I love how she used the bright colored balloon paper paired with the black and white colored kitty from the Newton's Antics Stamp set. She also used our new coordinating Newton's Anitcs purr-fect die set to cut out that cute kitty! 

Mermaid Birthday Card by Jennifer Jackson | Mermaid Crossing Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #mermaid
Here's a card I created using our Mermaid Crossing stamp set. I colored the image on watercolor paper with Zig Clean Color watercolor markers. I love how vibrant these are! Then I added some fun bubble paper for the background and a fun blue twine bow!
