Italy Cat card by Tatiana Trafimovich | Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
This awesome watercolor card is by Tatiana! She used the little images and words from this set to create a fun background and then added the image of the kitty eating pasta over the top! So adorable!

Italy Cat in gondola card by Juliana  Michaels | Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
Juliana created this adorable card using the image of Newton in the Gondola! The fun black and white striped card base coordinates perfectly with the shirt on the kitty! What a fun combo! 

Italy Cat card by Holly Endress | Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
Holly created this fun collage of images using both the kitty with the pasta and the kitty in the Italia tee to create this delightful card! She kept the colors to the green, white and red of the Italian flag too! 
Interactive Italy Cat in gondola card by Ellen Haxelmans | Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
Ellen created an interactive pull up card with a wonderful scene! The layers add so much dimension to the card and the sentiment is revealed when you pull it open. She also added in the "Awesome" and "Friend" words from the Simply Relative stamp set to make the custom sentiment!

Italy Cat Grazie card by Amanda Bodine | Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
The wine glass and bottle background on this card by Amanda is so gorgeous! Then she layered the fun image of Newton in the Italia tee over it with a flag colored rectangle! Such a fun idea!

Italy Cat in gondola card by Jennifer Timko | Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
This adorable watercolor scene was created by Jennifer! She used the stitched curve from the Land Borders die set to create a water background that connects the image of Newton in the gondola to the Rialto Bridge! What an awesome idea! 

Italy Buildings Grazie card by Samantha Mann | Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
You can even use the buildings in this set without Newton! Samantha created this beautiful thank you card using the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Colosseum, and the Rialto Bridge over a beautiful teal watercolored background! She also added a fun heart border up the side using the heart flag image! 

Italy Cat card by Maria Russell | Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
This lovely card by Maria features the image of Newton in his Italia t-shirt! She created a fun wreath around him and added the "I Love Italy" on a cute banner! The soft pastel color palette she used is so sweet! 

Italy Cat Anniversary card by Larissa Heskett | Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
Larissa created this amazing anniversary card using the kitty eating pasta! I love how she created a dinner scene with the wine and olive oil over a woodgrain base that looks like a table top. She also included the "ours tory is my favorite" from our Newton's Book Club stamp set and "Happy Anniversary" from our Years of Cheers stamp set. 

Italy Cat in gondola card by Naki Rager | Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
Naki created this amazing water featuring Newton in the gondola! She did some wonderful no-line coloring on the image and added a gorgeous watercolor background inside the circle! She also used the Sky Borders die set to add some clouds to the top!
