Inky Paws Challenge #98

This biweekly challenge is a:


Sketch Challenge


Create a project using the above sketch.


Here's my inspiration!



Enjoy the little moments by Debbie features Garden Mice, Bokeh, and Framework by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
I used a looser interpretation of the sketch by placing the sweet mouse from the Garden Mice stamp set upon the vellum and white scalloped frame using the Framework die set. I wrapped twine around everything and added some white enamel dots. I created a lavender and light blue background using the Bokeh stencil. I stamped the sentiment at the bottom to finish the card.  I really like how the circles in the butterfly's wings coordinate with the circles in the background.  

Now it's your turn to interpret the IPC Sketch.

Today I have some more inspiration for this Challenge! 


Have a purr-fect birthday by Debbie features Newton's Birthday Balloons, Land Borders, Fence, Sky Borders by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
I decided to create a fun scene using the challenge colors. I started by using the Sky Borders die set and distressed inks. I added a hills and grass using the Land Borders die set and placed a white-picket fence using the Fence die.  For my main attraction, I stamped and colored the kitty from the Newton's Birthday Balloons stamp set and added a bow tie from the Pug Hugs stamp set.

  This week we are challenge you to make a card/project featuring the colors pinklime, and white.  Such pretty colors!  


Here's my card to help inspire you!



I used the Flamingo Palm Tree Scene image for my card. I kept it very CAS by printing the image and the sentiment, Enjoy Today, 4 times.  Using Spectrum Noir markers, I colored the flamingos pink, Then I colored the palm trees and water lime green.  I used the Framework die from Newton's Nook Designs and added foam to add some depth.  I then added a few enamel dots and washi tape to finish it off.
I so hope you will play with our challenge colors!
Hugs, Debbie

Inky Paws Challenge #97

It's time for a new Inky Paws Challenge!


Color Challenge

Create a project using the colors white, green, teal, and yellow

Here's my inspiration!



You're Moo-velous by Debbie features Moo, My Type, Frames & Flags, Sky Borders, and Land Borders by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook

As soon as I saw the cows from the new Moo stamp set, I knew I had to make a card based on Doreen Cronin's book, Click, Clack, Moo: Cows that Type. This book makes me giggle because the cows type letters to the farmer with their demands (heated blankets!), and the farmer responds by typing them back.  It's a fun, delightful book!  So for my card, I created the sky using distress inks and the Sky Borders die set. I created the grass using the Land Borders die set. I colored and fussy cut the cow from the  Moo stamp set.  I then stamped and cut out a couple of bales of hay, and then placed the typewriter (My Type stamp set) on the hay. I used the Frames & Flags die set to cut out the center panel and the scalloped-edge layer using a yellow pattern paper. 
I hope I've inspired you not only to read this fabulous children's book, but more importantly create a project using these amazing colors!  You have until Friday, May 17, 2019 at Midnight CST. 

CIC #469--Lawn Fawn & Coffee Lover's Blog Hop--#7


There's still time to play with us at Cupcake Inspirations!

We are sponsored bLawn Fawn.


Lawn Fawn is generously providing a $25 gift certificate to their store to our randomly chosen winner.

Thank you for sponsoring this challenge!


For my card, I created a hexagon-shaped tag which has been embossed with a hexagon folder. Since the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop is also going on, I used this darling coffee-loving bee from The Rabbit Hole. I wanted to use a Lawn Fawn coffee image, but when I pulled out my Lawn Fawn products, I was completely shocked that I don't have any summer/spring coffee images! 
 (I will need to remedy this quickly!)

I hope you create a shaped card and join us at Cupcake Inspirations!

Inky Paws Challenge #96 Reminder

Have you created a card for the current Inky Paws Challenge?
There's still time!

Here'a a refresher.
Theme Challenge

Create a project using colored pencils. 

Today I have some more inspiration for this Challenge! 

What the cluck? by Debbie features Cluck, Hardwood, Framework, Hardwood, and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
I just love the all the new products from the April Release.  For this card, I concentrated on using the Cluck stamp set.  I just love all the different punny sentiments which wok wonderfully with the newly released Speech Bubbles dies set.  I also used the fabulous new stencil--Hardwood .  Then I used my favorite stand-by dies--Framework  and Frames & Flags. I adore how all the NND products can be mixed and matched!  

Okay, it's time for you to pull out your NND products and colored pencils!  I can't wait to see what you create!
Hugs, 
Debbie

  This week we are challenge you to make a shaped card--something other than a rectangle or square card.  What will shape will you decide--an apple?  a snowglobe?  a house?  Oh, there are so many possibilities!  We look forward to seeing them!


Now for our inspiration from the Sweeties: 


Debbie

I decided to make a mini-latte shaped card.  I used a die cut to make the mini-card base.  Then I added the sweet fox from Lawn Fawn's Party Animal stamp set. I added a tiny latte in his paws from the Newton's Nook Designs' Sending Hugs stamp set. A very fun, but easy shape card for a coffee-loving friend!
Hope you will create a shape card and enter it in the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge!
