IPC#39--Heart Theme

It's time to announce the first 2017 Inky Paws Challenge!  
This challenge will go for two weeks, so be sure to ink up your Newton's Nook Designs stamps and join in the fun!  

Here's my card to inspire you!
Nuts about you card by Debbie Owens | Sweetheart Tails stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I just loved the soft pink cookies, so I used the colors as well as the theme to create this fun Valentine's card.  I used NND's Sweetheart Tails

CIC390--Lawn Fawn

Welcome to this week's Cupcake Inspirations Challenge

We are sponsored this week by Lawn Fawn.



Lawn Fawn is generously providing a 6x6 paper pad and stamp set to our randomly chosen winner.

Thank you for sponsoring the challenge!

Below is our cupcake photo to inspire you.


Here is my card featuring two darling puppies from Lawn Fawn's Critters at the Dog Park stamp set.  I stamped the second puppy using the mirror image technique. This card was inspired by Jennifer McGuire. The love sentiment is a die from Paper Smooches and the heart die is from Avery Elle. I colored them with Spectrum Noir markers and added some from hearts and sequins. 


We would love to have you play along this week!

Love Will Keep Us Warm


Last week was super crazy. I decided to make all my students a clay ornament--a kitty in a coffee cup--as my Christmas present to them.  So instead of crafting coffee cards for the winter coffee lovers blog hop, I was crafting coffee clay ornaments--all 58 of them! (See below.) Now that they are done, I decided to play with this super fun sketch on Coffee Loving Cardmakers' Sunday Sip and Share Challenge. For this card, I pulled out some of my Paper Smooches stamps--Cyber Cafe & Warm Hearts. Thanks for stopping by!

I wanted to try my hand at a more elegant, less whimsical, Christmas card.

Snow Day!


I wanted to squeeze in some craft time this weekend before I finally send my Christmas cards out.  (Yep!  I'm procrastinating!)
This card was based on the colors and sketch by Your Next Stamp. I don't have any YNS Christmas stamps, so I pulled out Newton (NND) and made a fun winter card. Thanks for stopping by!
