Inky Paws Challenge 98

Aloha!

(sorry not sorry about all of the tropical cards, my parents are in Hawaii right now for a vacation and I have palm trees on the brain ♥)

Today is the start of a new Inky Paws Sketch Challenge! We have a great sketch for you so 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 ☺





I used my absolute favorite stencil, (Newton's Nook Designs Tropical Leaves Stencil) for a masked strip of stenciled background. As usual, after I finished my stenciling I didn't want to cover it up so I used a patterned vellum for my next layer ☺I used the Aloha Newton stamp set for my image, with lots of fussy cutting (this card is so on-brand for me!) I did some messy machine stitching at the bottom of the tag and added an embossed sentiment on black cardstock under my image to finish everything off ♥

I won't post any spoilers but can we all agree that the finale of Game of Thrones last night was awful? (just the writing, the acting and cinematography were fantastic!) boo.
 On the bright side, at least I won't be as sleepy on Monday mornings anymore ☺

Have a lovely day!

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!)

Have a fantastic week ♥

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!
