Inky Paws Challenge 94 ♥

hi!

We have a new Inky Paws Challenge today that's just perfect for the beginning of spring! It's a color challenge with mint green, blue, pink, and white ♥

I decided to use the adorable Newton's Nook Designs Woodland Spring stamp set for some no-line coloring for the focal point of this card.





I just about killed my eyes with those light colors and the no-line coloring but it turned out so pretty!
I masked off the circle before I did my stenciling and i added a die cut piece of patterned vellum to anchor everything together. I am super happy with how this turned out ♥

Join us for the challenge and link up a card for a chance to win a $20 store credit to the Newton's Nook Designs Online Store :)

Have a fantastic week!

inky paws challenge 93 part 2

Hello!

I have another card for Inky Paws Challenge 93 today :)

I just love hiding easter eggs in the layers of grass in a box card ♥

The challenge is "think spring" and you have until Friday night to join us and link up a card to the challenge for a chance to win a $20 store credit to the Newton's Nook Designs online store! 




This one is pretty straight forward, with a lot of coloring and fussy cutting :)
I stamped all of my images on Neenah solar white cardstock with black memento ink and colored them with copic markers before fussy cutting them out. I die cut all of the pieces for my box card out of green cardstock (and the blue piece for my sky). I inked up the bottom of the card exterior with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink and splattered it with water to give it some interest and texture. I also inked the stitched rectangle for my sentiment. I assembled everything, added some die cut clouds, and an embossed sentiment.

We have a nice quiet week planned here, which means plenty of time for me to spend in the studio! I'm making awesome progress on this year's project life album, although i have to clear it off of my desk and make time for cards too!

supplies:
Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Easter Basket stamp set, Newton's Nook Designs Land Borders die set, Lawn Fawn Scalloped Box Card Pop-up die set, My Favorite Things Puffy Clouds Die-namics, Neenah Solar White Cardstock, Papertrey Ink Green Parakeet cardstock, My Favorite Things Summer Splash cardstock, Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide, Black Memento Ink, Versamark Ink, Hero Arts White embossing powder, and Copic Markers

inky paws challenge 93

hi!

There's a brand new Inky Paws Challenge starting today, Think Spring!  I decided to go with hydrangeas for my card, i know they're kind of a summer flower, but my wedding flowers were hydrangeas and i planted a hydrangea bush at our new house after our wedding and when that bush got new growth and leaves on it was really the beginning of spring to me ♥
I still haven't planted one at our new house but since my mom bought our old house i still get to take care of my old hydrangea bush :)






As usual, play along and link up a card to the challenge for a chance to win a $20 store credit to the Newton's Nook Designs online store :)

challenge 92 part 2 (easter)

hi!

I've got another card for Inky Paws Challenge 92 and a reminder to go make a card and link it up to the challenge! You have the rest of the week to join us!

I went with an Easter card using the sweet Newton's Easter Basket stamp set ♥




I cut a panel of blue cardstock and die cut my clouds from it to leave a fun negative cloud image and cut some grassy strips of green cardstock using the Newton's Nook Designs Land Borders die. I splattered some Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide over a white card base to give it a fun Easter candy speckled egg look for my background and then layered my sky and grass over it with some foam adhesive. I stamped my image on neenah solar white cardstock with memento ink and colored it with copics before fussy cutting it out and adding it to the card. I used the Newton's Nook Frames and Flag die set to cut my little banner and added the sentiment to it with versamark ink and white embossing powder. I finished everything off with a little bit of baker's twine before adding the sentiment banner to finish the card!

I have a nice little stash of Easter cards that i've made, but.... i don't actually send Easter cards. Anyone else make cards because they're fun to make and then realize that you don't use cards for that occasion?

Anyways, link up your card to the challenge here for a chance to win a $20 store credit to the Newton's Nook Designs online store!

Have a lovely day ♥

challenge 92 bee cause

Hi! I have a super sweet honey bee card today based off of the new sketch for Inky Paws Challenge 92! Link up your card to the challenge for a chance to win a $20 store credit to the Newton's Nook Designs online store :)





I made a super pretty gradient ink blended stripe down my card base for the bottom layer of the sketch and then I die cut some wood veneer with the hexagons die, I added a little ink to the wood veneer because it ended up being too similar a shade to my bear and I wanted more contrast between them. I colored all of the images with copics and fussy cut them out and layered them with an embossed sentiment strip :)

I'm kind of crazy about honey bee stamps so I was happy to finally ink this set up ♥

Have a lovely day!

inky paws challenge 91 part 2!

Hello and happy Monday! Happy President's Day!

I have my second card for Inky Paws Challenge 91 today :)

This challenge is a color challenge with black, gray, white, and pink and you have until Friday night to link up a card for a chance to win a $20 store credit to the Newton's Nook Designs Online Store!





I started off with the Tree Rings Stencil on some Rustic White cardstock, I mixed a smidge of black watercolor paint with my texture paste to get that pretty gray color. I stamped my images from the Newton's Nook Peony Blooms stamp set with Memento Ink on Neenah cardstock and colored them with copics and fussy cut them out. I stamped my sentiment from the Newton's Nook Simply Sentimental stamp set on black cardstock with Versamark ink and embossed it with white embossing powder before fussy cutting that out. I splattered a little bit of watered down Distress oxide over my background and then glued all of my pieces down on top of the tree rings!

We're in the middle of an extra holiday weekend, Bree's school was out for parent teacher conferences on Friday (which we didn't have to go to since we just had an IEP meeting) and then today school is closed for President's Day so we got to head out of town this weekend and see some friends down in North Carolina!

Have a lovely day!

inky paws challenge #91 le meow!

Hello!

There's a brand new Inky Paws Challenge starting today, and this challenge is full of some super fun colors: white, gray, black, and coral! Link up your card to the challenge for a chance to win a $20 store credit to the Newton's Nook Designs Online Store!

I know I say this a lot but I kind of love this card 😍






I started off by doing some ink blending on the background with the Tumbling Hearts Stencil and Tattered Rose Distress Oxide Ink. Then I mixed some Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide with water to splatter it over my background. I stamped the Eiffel Tower and the kitty in the balloon directly on the background and then added my gray rolling hills that I die cut with the Newton's Nook Land Borders die. I stamped my sentiment in Coral Ink and then stamped, colored, and cut out my images on Neenah Solar White cardstock with Memento Ink and Copic Markers.

I'm hard at work on my daughter's valentines for her class exchange on Thursday, we went with a rainbow unicorn theme and they are so stinkin' cute! I'm waiting on one more candy to be delivered today before I can tie off all of the bags and then I'll photograph them and share them ♥

Have a lovely day!
