Stag Birthday Card by Naki | Splendid Stag and Points & Plumes die sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
Our guest designer, Naki played along with the challenge this month! She used the stag from the Splendid Stags die set and added on a hat  rom the In Slow Motion stamp set to make it a birthday stag! Then she added the wreath from the new Happy Little Thoughts stamp set and arrows cut out with the new Points & Plumes die set

Kimberly created this awesome card by cutting out four arrows with our new Points & Plumes die set through the front of her card. The color you see is from the inside of the card! So fun! The sentiment is from the Adventure Awaits stamp set.

Lydia created this gorgeous glittery card! I love the gold "dipped" feathers she created using our new Points & Plumes die set. She also used the feather image and sentiment with the arrow from the Adventure Awaits stamp set.

Adventure is waiting card by Stephanie Muzzulin | Points & Plumes dies & Adventure Awaits stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
Stephanie found the perfect arrow paper to create her card! She used the fun papers to frame the sentiment from the Adventure Awaits stamp set. Then she finished it off with the die cut arrow from the Points & Plumes die set.

And lastly, I had fun playing along too! I used the Points & Plumes die set to cut out some arrows. I also used the negative of the die cut to make a fufun strips. Then I added on the sentiment from the Adventure Awaits stamp set onto a tag. The tag was cut out using the Tags Times Two die set.
