Inky Paws Challenge #93 Reminder

Today I'm sharing some more inspiration for our current challenge! 

Here'a a refresher.

Create a project using Spring as your theme. 

Today I have some more inspiration for this Challenge! 


Love no bunny butt you by Debbie features Bunny Hop, Bold Blooms, Framework, and Flags & Frames by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
I just love this bunny image and the punny sentiment from the Bunny Hop stamp set. After coloring him with Spectrum Noir markers, I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops to make his cotton tail have a bit of dimension.  I wanted to create a bright springy backdrop, so I used the Bold Blooms stencil and Distress Inks to color in the blooms in pinks, yellows, and oranges which I die cut into a circle. For the banner, I used the Frame & Flags die set, but I didn't want a long banner, so I sized it down before stamping the sentiment and distressing the edges.  I added a couple of sequins for shine.  I wanted to add a lot of green to make the flowers pop, so I went with a Doodlebug Designs green gingham paper which I die cut using the Framework die set.   It turned out to be bright and bold!

Now it's your turn to create a Think Spring card using your Newton's Nook Supplies.  You have a chance to win a $20 credit to the NND store!  (If you haven't seen the new March release, be sure to head over there!  So many new "must-have" products!)

  This week we are hosting a color challenge.  
We are using the colors, lilac, white, and sky blue in our cards, and we are eager to see how you use these beautiful colors in your projects!


 For my card, I used the Thank You Tulip Block image from Bugaboo. I kept it very simple by coloring the tulips in shades of lavenders. I very lightly added a bit of green to the leaves so they weren't stark white, but not too much since green isn't in the challenge colors. I lightly colored the background in blue.  I mounted the image to a lavender card base and adhered it to fun foam for dimension.  I added some shimmer Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.  I added some lavender jewels for a final touch.   It's very simple, but very pretty.

Now it's your turn to create a project using the challenge colors.  Be sure to link up at Cupcake Inspirations for a chance to win a gift certificate to the fabulous Bugaboo store!

Inky Paws Challenge #93

It's time for a new challenge at Inky Paws Challenge!

Theme Challenge

Create a project using the theme SPRING.

For your chance to win a $20 store credit to Newton's Nook Designs, be sure to link up your Spring card by Friday, March 22, 2019



Here's my inspiration!




I went a bit crazy and used 7 different NND products!  I just love the way you can mix and match elements of the stamp sets and how versatile the dies are!  For my card, I started with a DCWV paper stack that has this fun foiled polka-dotted paper!  I added a layer of clouds using the Sky Borders die set. I love scalloped edges on my cards, so I used the Frames & Flags die set. I created a sliding element, so the owl from the Love Owl-Ways stamp set can fall from the clouds. This particular owl is holding a heart balloon, but I did some fussy cutting and removed the balloon. I added the froggy umbrella from the Umbrella Pals stamp set.  (Reminds me of Mary Poppins!). I then added the kitten image from the Sending Hugs stamp and die set who is also holding a froggy umbrella.  Using the banner die from the Frames & Flags and scalloped the edges.  The sentiment I select is from the Newton's Rainy Day stamp set.  Since spring showers bring beautiful flowers, I added the potted flowers from the Wagon of Wishes stamp set and slipped them slightly behind the banner.  It was such a fun card to make!
I so hope you will pull out at least one NND stamp set and join us for this super fun challenge--THINK SPRING!   Can't wait to see what you create!
Hugs,
Debbie

Today I have some more inspiration for this Challenge! 

Happy Easter by Debbie features Land Borders, Frames & Flags, and Newton's Easter Basket by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
I played with the new  Newton's Easter Basket stamp set. I just love how the kitty is hiding behind the Easter eggs, and that sweet bunny is just so cute!  I created the grass using the Land Border die. I used Nuvo dots to make the bunny's tail look fluffy.  I added some butterflies from the Newton's Day Dream stamp set. I used the Frames & Flags die set to create scalloped edging on all my layers. I added a bit of twine to finish it off!

Here's my inspiration!

I love the plaid stencil set by Newton's Nook Designs! They are so fun to create backgrounds! I decide to use a white, lime green, and orange color scheme. My images are from the Moose Mountain stamp set. I added a layer of snow and die cut my background using Framework.  I added some white polka dots on the female's snowsuit and glossy accents on the googles!

Schools are closed again, so I am playing in the craft room!  So fun!
This card features these darling mice from Gerda Steiner Designs. It's called Fall Mice, but I decided to make this set have a Valentine's theme. I added a lot of little hearts in the wheelbarrow and had them floating down from the sky. I used the coordinating die to cut the mice.  The white card base was cut using the Framework die by Newton's Nook Designs. It's one of my go-to dies!
