Inky Paws Challenge 89 part two

hello!

I have another card for the sketch challenge for Inky Paws Challenge 89 today! There are only a few entries for this challenge so far so your odds to win the $20 store credit to the Newton's Nook Designs online store are pretty good! Go make a card and link it up to the challenge :)







I stamped my wreath from the Happy Little Thoughts stamp set 3 times on kraft paper and colored them with colored pencils and I used some gamsol for blending. I fussy cut out the wreaths, one with the inside still intact, one with the wreath cut completely out, inside and out, and another with just the big flowers cut out. I stamped the sentiment inside the wreath and embossed it with white embossing powder and then used foam tape to assemble all of the layers of the wreath. I added some Nuvo Crystal drops around the wreath and in the flower centers. I die cut a tag out of wood veneer paper using the frames and flag die set, I used the stitched rectangle and some creative die cutting to make my vellum rectangle (I made it a little smaller than the die is so it would fit on my card the way i wanted it to!)

I caught whatever crud my daughter has (not surprising since she sneezes in my face from just a few inches away!) so I feel like death this weekend. fevers, stuffy nose, body aches, ick.

hope you have a lovely week!

Inky Paws Challenge 89

Hi!

We have a new Inky Paws Challenge sketch starting today :)

Join us and link up your card for a chance to win a $20 store credit to the Newton's Nook Designs online store!





I love the textures on this one! I made the argyle strip by masking off a row of the diamonds on the Argyle Stencil set and inking the diamonds with some Distress Oxide and then adding the dotted lines with some texture paste. The hearts are a Simon Says Stamp die cut. The kitty is stamped on a stitched circle die cut and then fussy cut out after I colored him with Copics!

I could use a hit of that coffee today, I'm a pretty tidy and organized person, but every once in awhile I get the urge to purge and can find some chaos to go through, I have two towers of drawers in the closet in my studio that got attacked last night. (I watched the first episode of the Marie Kondo show on Netflix last night. I read the book a few years ago, but after watching the show I went searching through my house for some stuff to go through!) Long story short, my studio is now a bit of a disaster and I didn't make it to bed until around 2 AM 😳

Inky Paws Challenge 88

Hello and happy Monday!

I've got another card for Inky Paws Challenge 88 today! There's still the rest of this week left to 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!





shocker, I know. I used the plaid stencil again 😳 (sorry not sorry)

I didn't actually intend for the lighter plaid color to look like that, I used Aged Mahogany ink, but pigment-y ink on a dark cardstock can be weird and I decided to stick with it!

I stamped the bird, colored it with copics, and masked it for some ink blending and then stenciling. Then I trimmed as much of the panel as I could so I'd still be able to show off the yummy plaid underneath! I traced a circle and fussy cut it. (circles are my fussy cutting kryptonite)


Come join us for this challenge! Life is back to normal around here today, Jeff went back to work after a two week Christmas break, Bree's back in school and dance, and I'm getting some work done in the studio today! 💕

Have a lovely day!

inky paws challenge 88

hi!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas (or whatever you celebrate!) and Happy New Year's Eve!

We have a brand new color challenge today for an Inky Paws Challenge! It's a fun wintery combo of red, light blue, white, and black. I decided to work with the snowman from the picture and of course use the plaid stencil set again :)





I stenciled the red part of the plaid with Candy Apple Distress Ink and Oxide and then I used the Texture paste for the white part and I just love how you can still see the red underneath the texture paste!

I stamped my snowmen (with some masking) on Neenah solar white cardstock and colored them with Copics (It's so hard to color snow but I think I'm getting better!) I fussy cut around the top of the snowmen and added the sentiment underneath them. I finished the snowmen panel off with some baker's twine and then assembled all of the card pieces with some foam tape under the snowmen!

As always, come and join us for this 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 New Year! (be safe tonight!)

challenge 87 part two

hi!

I have my second card for the Inky Paws silver and/or gold challenge today! I decided to use the gorgeous Poinsettia Blooms stamp set again this week and made a photo card with an old family picture. There's still time to play along! Link up a card here by Friday at midnight for a chance to win a $20 store credit to the Newton's Nook Designs online store.




So i made a fun frame out of the poinsettias (stamped in versamark and embossed with liquid platinum embossing powder) and I watercolored them, then I fussy cut the center of the frame out and slapped a picture in there! I painted some gold and silver shimmers over all of the flowers with the Fine Tec Pearl watercolor paint, (this thing is so shiny!) I stamped and embossed my sentiment on a tag cut out of gold vellum with the Newton's Nook Designs Tags Times Two die set and added it with some Gold Baker's Twine. (I got that baker's twine from the gift wrap section at target a few years ago and my love for it is still super strong, it's a warm coppery gold and i've never seen it anywhere else so I'm glad I still have a full backup spool!)

In other news, we survived our first dance recital! I had so much anxiety about it but it went perfectly and Bree was adorable and wonderful ♥

I finished my Christmas cards last night, they're super cute and I should have them posted sometime this week, now I have a million things to bake and candy to make this week!

Have a lovely day!

Newton's Nook Designs Poinsettia Blooms stamp set, Newton's Nook Designs Winter Memories stamp set, Newton's Nook Designs Tags Times Two die set, Kraft cardstock, Gold Vellum, Versamark Ink, Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder, Hero Arts White Embossing Powder, Mission Gold watercolors, Fine Tec Pearl Colors watercolors, Stickles, and Baker's Twine

Challenge 87

hello and happy Monday!

We have a new Inky Paws Challenge today! This challenge is to use gold and/or silver on project which should be super easy this time of year!

I went with some pretty gold in my foiled background and the thread under my tags (and I guess in the centers of my flowers! a triple threat!)




How amazing is this set of plaid stencils!?!? I absolutely love it!
I started off by using transfer gel to stencil the thin lines of the plaid on some dark green cardstock. When the gel had dried I sent it through the minc machine with some champagne Heidi Swapp foil. I used Distress Oxide ink to add the other plaid stencil on top of it (I buffed off the ink from the top of the gold with a swiffer cloth) I stamped the flowers on some Neenah solar white cardstock and colored them with Copic markers and added a few extra layers on top of the center flower for some awesome dimension. I added a sentiment on a tag and some gold metallic thread under the tag to finish everything off!

You have two weeks to play along with 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 great week!
