Inky Paws Challenge 79 (part two!)

hi!

I have a bit of a boozy card today for my second post for the Ink Paws Challenge #79. The challenge colors are pink, blue, orange, and yellow and I've been having some girls nights out lately with my mom so the cocktails seemed appropriate! (we've been loving the $5 margaritas at Chili's!)





I've got lots going on this week! My baby turns two on Wednesday, we get to meet Bree's kindergarten teacher on Thursday, family starts rolling in on Friday, Bree and Emma's birthday party is on Saturday, we have good friends spending the rest of the weekend with us, and then Bree starts kindergarten on Tuesday! and I have a bunch of new fall/winter stamps that are just begging to be used!

have a lovely week and remember that you have until Friday midnight to play along with this color challenge for a chance to win a $20 store credit to the Newton's Nook Designs online store ♥

(next week's challenge card is my favorite so far so make sure you stop back by next monday!)

Princess Invitations ♥

Good morning!

I'm really excited about the cards in today's post, they're the invitations for Bree and Emma's birthday party next weekend and they turned out pretty much exactly how I pictured them ♥






I bought a castle svg file on Etsy and then manipulated it to turn it into a gate fold card and then I made another cut file for the turrets so I could foil them with my Rose Gold foil. I designed the text in photoshop and foiled two of the lines in the rose gold. I bought the Princess torsos (which I also used for big decorations and for cupcake toppers for the party) on Etsy and cut them all out (I also flipped the picture in photoshop and printed out the reverse of the image so they could be glued back to back) and then I spent the rest of my life hot gluing those little tulle skirts on all of the Princesses ☺

I'm actually keeping this party a bit low key (seriously, my previous plans included turning my kitchen table into a carriage) But all of the party prep is almost done, I just have to finish cutting out wrappers and toppers for the cupcakes at this point!

Have a lovely day!

Inky Paws Challenge #79

hello and happy Monday!

It's time for a new color challenge for the Inky Paws Challenge Blog and it's such a fun and bright color scheme! It's pink, orange, yellow, and blue and I decided to go with watercolor (not my strong suit) for this card with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and the sweet florals from the Newton's Nook Designs Peony Blooms stamp set.





I did some masking to stamp all of my flowers in Versafine ink and then colored everything with my Zig pens and some water, then I masked off the flowers again and inked up the paper between the flowers with some distress ink. I fussy cut around the outside edges of the flowers and then added the colored piece to a card base with some foam tape.

simple, but super pretty and vibrant!

Mermazing Kitties

Hi!

I've got another card for the Beach/Summer Theme card challenge for Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenges today!
I made a shaker card using the new Newton kitty mermaids and I kind of love it ♥
No underwater shaker card is ever complete (in my mind) without sand and tiny seashells! (also, I have a bit of a habit of sneaking Nemo and Dory into every ocean scene I make with fish!)







There's still a week left to play along with this challenge for the chance to win $20 in store credit to the Newton's Nook online store (which would be really handy to win since it's a release week!)

Have a fantastic day!

Inky Paws Challenge #78

Hello and happy Monday!

Today's the start of a super fun new summer or beach themed challenge for the Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge Blog!
I'm really happy with how this card turned out ♥

I used Ranger Texture Paste and the Newton's Nook Designs Seashells Stencil on a clear cardbase and then inked up all of my seashells with Distress Oxide inks and a bunch of masking.






I used the Newton's Nook frames and flag die set to make the scalloped card inside and I ink blended an ombre background with the Newton's Nook Waves stencil. After I inked up all of my seashells and bubbles I added some fun accents with Nuvo Crystal Drops, Wink of Stella shimmer pen, and Glossy Accents. I finished off the card by stamping my sentiment from the Newton's Nook Tranquil Tides Stamp set on a die cut flag and wrapping some twine around it ♥

I've been working so hard on catching up on picture printing for my project life albums lately. I was super behind and I decided to print them all before I get back to decorating any, I'm so close to being caught up now! I started in April (i think?) and I've printed 5 full albums, I'm mostly done with 6 (just two months to print) and then I have only one album left!!! (and two December Daily albums, but those can wait a little bit longer...) The album I'm currently printing is last year's (2017) and it's insane to see how much the girls have grown in the last year, especially Emma!

Anyways, please come check out all of the fun inspiration for this challenge at the Inky Paws Challenge Blog and play along with us!
have a lovely week!
