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

inky paws challenge 93

hi!

There's a brand new Inky Paws Challenge starting today, Think Spring!  I decided to go with hydrangeas for my card, i know they're kind of a summer flower, but my wedding flowers were hydrangeas and i planted a hydrangea bush at our new house after our wedding and when that bush got new growth and leaves on it was really the beginning of spring to me ♥
I still haven't planted one at our new house but since my mom bought our old house i still get to take care of my old hydrangea bush :)






As usual, 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 :)

Have a fantastic day!

challenge 92 part 2 (easter)

hi!

I've got another card for Inky Paws Challenge 92 and a reminder to go make a card and link it up to the challenge! You have the rest of the week to join us!

I went with an Easter card using the sweet Newton's Easter Basket stamp set ♥




I cut a panel of blue cardstock and die cut my clouds from it to leave a fun negative cloud image and cut some grassy strips of green cardstock using the Newton's Nook Designs Land Borders die. I splattered some Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide over a white card base to give it a fun Easter candy speckled egg look for my background and then layered my sky and grass over it with some foam adhesive. I stamped my image on neenah solar white cardstock with memento ink and colored it with copics before fussy cutting it out and adding it to the card. I used the Newton's Nook Frames and Flag die set to cut my little banner and added the sentiment to it with versamark ink and white embossing powder. I finished everything off with a little bit of baker's twine before adding the sentiment banner to finish the card!

I have a nice little stash of Easter cards that i've made, but.... i don't actually send Easter cards. Anyone else make cards because they're fun to make and then realize that you don't use cards for that occasion?

Anyways, link up your card to the challenge here for a chance to win a $20 store credit to the Newton's Nook Designs online store!

Have a lovely day ♥
