Cats + Boxes = TONS of FUN!! Cards w/ Newton's Nook Designs!! =)

HELLO!! 
I'm sharing TWO adorable cards up on the Newton's Nook Designs Blog using the 
If you follow me you know I LOVE to mix my New and Old Stamp Sets to create FUN Scenes and I had a BLAST with this NEW Set!! 

For my first card I started by stamping and embossing all four of the images of the kitties in boxes from the Newton Loves Boxes Stamp Set and cut them out using the coordinating Newton Loves Boxes Die Set!!.I wanted to add some fun details onto all the boxes to make them come to life too!! I stamped the words "cat's meow" and some fishbones, both from the Newton's Antics Stamp Set, on the sides of the box on the right. For the center box she added "in the sea" from the Tranquil Tides Stamp Set on the box front. The box on the left has a cute little feather added on from the Newton's Birthday Flutter Stamp Set!! Then she added in a ball of yarn and little wind up mouse in front, both from the Newton's Antics Stamp Set!!

For the background I created some fun Pawprints using the Pawprints Stencil with Antique Linen Distress Ink!! I masked off the Bottom 1/3 of the Card and used Hickory Smoke Distress Ink to add the Floor and a Base Board!! A Few Water Splatters add some Dimension!! The cute little ticket frame was cut out using the Framework Die Set!! I Stamped and Embossed the sentiment "I love you more than boxes" from the Newton Loves Boxes Stamp Set in the center of the Ticket and Inked the edges to make it POP and added a Lawn Fawn Hanger and Bow Die Cut to make it look like a Wall Hanging!! 

 For my second card I wanted to created a FUN interactive pull tab card!! 
I just LOVE interactive Cards!! 
 I stamped and embossed the two images of the kitties in boxes from the Newton Loves Boxes Stamp Set and cut them out with the coordinating Newton Loves Boxes Die Set and then she stacked them over each other, attaching the top kitty to a Waffle Flower Craft Pull Tab mechanism so the recipient gets to pull the Tab to reveal the second kitty and a SURPRISE Friend/Foe underneath!! ;) 

 How fun is that!!?? SQUEAL!! Did I say I like to make Interactive Cards!!?? I also added on some fun box decorations, again using the fishbone from the Newton's Antics Stamp Set and the word "nom" from the Shark Bites Stamp Set!! I wanted to add a "Sneaky" little mouse on the orange kitties head!! So I masked the Santa Hat from his Head!!  I Stamped and Embossed him from the Santa Paws Newton Stamp Set and used the coordinating Santa Paws Newton Die Set to cut him out!! 

For the background I created some fun Pawprint Wallpaper again using the Pawprints Stencil with Antique Linen Distress Ink!! I masked off the Bottom 1/3 of the Card and used Hickory Smoke Distress Ink to add the Floor and a Base Board!! A Few Water Splatters add some Dimension!! For the frames I die cut the postage edge and ticked shapes using our Framework Die Set and added in the pawprints and words from the Newton's Antics Stamp Set!! 

For the Inside of the Card I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment form the Newton's Birdbath Stamp Set!! I created the Same Frame that I used for the front of the Card!!  I thought that sentiment went WELL with the Silliness of the Card Design!!?? 
What do you think!!??
I just LOVE LOVE LOVE the way these turned out and I can't wait to send them to BRIGHTEN someones Day!! 
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEKEND!!
