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!)

supplies:
Newton's Nook Designs Frozen Friends stamp set, Newton's Nook Designs Plaid Stencil Set, My Favorite Things Blue Breeze cardstock, Neenah Solar White Cardstock, Black Memento Ink, Black Versafine Ink, Ranger Texture Paste, Distress Ink and Oxide in Candy Apple, Copic Markers, Baker's Twine, Foam Adhesive

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!

supplies:
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!
(this is a huge week for us with Bree's first school concert and dance recital and I'm taking Emma caroling so follow along on instagram for all of the cuteness! and wish me luck!)

Inky Paws Challenge 84 (part 2!) (day 5 of the 30 day coloring challenge!)

Hello and Happy Monday!

I've got my second card for Inky Paws Challenge 84 today. The challenge was to use burlap or twine on a card so I decided to make my background out of burlap. I still wanted some more texture, so I used embossing paste and the tree ring stencil on some clear cardstock and stitched that to the burlap background.











How sweet is that little deer?!
