Inky Paws Challenge 96

Hello and happy Monday!

Today is the start of a new Inky Paws Challenge and the week after spring break! This challenge is to use colored pencils on a project so I got out my Prismacolor Pencils and got to work ♥



I used the Newton's Nook Designs Bokeh Stencil set and colored over it with some pencils. I used the Fancy Edges Tag Die set to cut two tags out of vellum. I stamped the sentiment on one of them with Versafine ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I stitched the two tags together with some sequins and glitter inside to add a fun shaker element. I finished the whole thing off with some baker's twine :)

Spring break is over and now it feels like we're in a sprint towards the end of the school year. My kids kind of lost their minds about halfway through spring break which makes me slightly concerned about how summer will go, I will apparently need to implement more of a schedule and clear expectations than what we had this last week if we're going to survive a whole summer 😳

Inky Paws Challenge 95 part 2

hi!

I've got rainbows, unicorns, and glitter today! What can I say, I was a Lisa Frank kid!
This is my second post for the Inky Paws Challenge 95 sketch. Link up a card to the challenge for a chance to win a $20 store credit to the Newton's Nook Designs online store ♥




I started out by inking the Newton's Nook Designs Bokeh Stencil set with Distress Oxide inks in two different rainbow color schemes. I mixed some glitter with multi-medium matte to stencil over one of the sets of stenciled polka dots for a pretty glittery rainbow paste effect. I stamped, colored, and cut out my unicorns and added some wink of stella shimmer to their tails, manes, and horns. I also sprayed some shimmer mist on the strip of black cardstock inlaid into the bokeh background, this card is so shiny! ♥
I finished everything off with a vellum tag with the sentiment stamped and embossed on it.

Remember to link up a card by Friday night to the challenge for a chance to win!

This week is my daughter's spring break and my parents are visiting all week! (my dad just got back from a deployment so we haven't seen him in over a year!)

Inky Paws Challenge 95

Hello!

it's a new Monday and the beginning of a new Inky Paws Challenge! We have a great sketch for you for this challenge so get crafty 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!

I decided to have some fun with the Newton's Nook Designs Bold Blooms Stencil for this card, it's such a great card for spring!




I stenciled the flowers with Ranger Texture Paste and then after it was dry I colored over the paste with Copic markers (I was super hesitant about this, I didn't want to have to replace all of my marker nibs, but I kept a light hand with the coloring and didn't notice any damage to the markers)
I stamped the sentiment from the Newton's Nook Designs April Showers stamp set on a die cut tag. I wrapped the tag with some twine and layered it on top of some striped vellum on the card. Pretty simple and flat but the flowers really pack a punch!

Have a lovely day!

challenge 94 part two

Hello! Happy Monday and happy April!

I have a bright and pretty card to share today for Inky Paws Challenge 94, you still have until the end of this week to join us for this challenge :)

It's a color challenge with white, pink, baby blue, and mint and I used the Newton's Nook Designs Loads of Blooms stamp set to make a fun dimensional layered bouquet of pretty pink tulips.



I stamped and colored the girl and her flowers 4 times to get all of those layers and did lots of fussy cutting. I used a piece of white woodgrain cardstock for my background and splattered it with some watered down Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide. The sentiment is stamped on a die cut doily that i stitched onto my card base. I glued the girl down and then assembled all of the layers of her flowers with foam tape to finish everything off ♥

Have a great day!

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 ♥

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
