Friends furr-ever by Debbie features Puppy's Bubble Tea, Newton's Bubble Tea, Bokeh, Puppy Heart, and Frames Squared by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #coffeelovers, #teacards, #cardmaking, #cardchallenge, #dogcards, #catcards
For my card, I masked the top and the bottom and distressed using Distress Oxide Inks.  Then I went back and used the Bokeh stencil set to back the bubbles.  I stamped, used my Scan'n'Cut, and colored using Copic markers to create the little feline and little canine tea-loving critters.  I used the Puppy's Bubble Tea and the Newton's Bubble Tea stamp set.  I then added Glossy Accents to the cups for added texture.  I then made a couple brown bubbles using the Frames Squared die set. At last, I embossed the sentiment from the Puppy Heart stamp set. I love the fun layout and all the bubbles on this card.  Now it's your turn.  How will you use your Newton's Nook Designs products?

Hugs,
Debbie

Debbie's birthday card features Newton Loves Coffee, Frames & Tags, and Time for Coffee by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #coffeelovers, #coffeecards, #cardmaking, #cardchallenge, #catcards

I started with a dark teal card base. I then then used the Frames & Tags die set and cut out from dark brown and cream. I distressed the cream inside panels with Distress Oxide Ground Expresso. I adhered the dark brown frame and the distressed panels. I then stamped and cut (Scan 'n' Cut) the kitty images from the Newton Loves Coffee stamp set and the coffee appliances from the Time for Coffee stamp set. I colored using Copic markets and adhered the appliances with tape. For the kitties, I popped them up with 3D foam tape. I then stamped the sentiment. This card is purr-fect for my coffee-loving friends! Now it's your turn to use the sketch and NND products!

Hugs,

Debbie

Inky Paws Challenge #222

 

Today starts a new Inky Paws Challenge!


Use the challenge sketch.

One lucky participant will win a $20 store credit to Newton's Nook Designs!  You have until Friday, May 10, 2024 at Midnight CST to link up your project using the challenge sketch!

Here's my inspiration:

 

I started by die cutting the white multi-panel frame using the Frames & Tags die set. I then used Distress Oxide ink to distress a piece of white cardstock using the Serene Stripes stencil. I then used Frames & Tags die set. I then used the Basic Frames die set to create the golden panel.  I placed the multi-panel on the golden cardstock, then added the striped panels.  I stamped and cut out the images from the Never Enough Books stamp set. I used a Scan 'n' Cut to cut the stamped images. I then colored using the Copic markers. I then stamped the kitty image from the Newton's Book Club stamp set and placed him in the scene.  I stamped the sentiment in the larger panel.  I love how this turned out.  It makes me think of built in shelving filled with books!

Hugs,
Debbie

Debbie's floral card features Dainty Daisies and Basic Frames by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #daisiescards, #floralcards, #cardmaking, #cardchallenge

My card features the Dainty Daisies stamp set. I stamped the image and used my Scan 'n' Cut to cut it out, but there is a coordinating die if you prefer.  I colored the daisies yellow with blue centers. This is a bit fantastical, but there are actually blue daisies with yellow centers.  Aren't they amazing!


After coloring the daisies, I cut out the stitched panel using the 
Basic Frames die set. I lightly distressed the panel with Mustard Seed Distress Oxide ink and stamped the sentiment. I added foam tape and adhered the daisises.  Then I added foam tape to the panel. I added some jute twine and tied a bow.  

On the cardbase, I added the green zigzag Washi tape and adhered the panel.  A fun CAS-like card packed with spring freshness!  Inspired?  I can't wait to see what you create using the challenge colors!

Hugs,

Debbie

Here's my inspiration!


I Be-LEAF in you by Debbie features Newton's Hanging Basket, Basic Frames, and Pastel Basics by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #springcards, #cardmaking, #cardchallenge

I went with a CAS style for this card.  I pulled the striped and polka dotted papers from the Pastel Basics paper pad. I used the Basic Frames die set to create the stitiched banner. For added texture, I cut the banner with horizontal stripes while cutting the yellow stripes vertically. The polka dotted papers kept the different stripes from clashing.  Hanging above the papers is a sweet Siamese kitty colored with Copic markers. This little guy is from the Newton's Hanging Basket stamp set and cut using my Scan 'n' Cut. I adhered the basket with 3D foam tape and added a little brad at the top.  I stamped the sentiment and add a leaf at the bottom.  

Hugs,
Debbie

Try A Sketch Tuesday Challenge Cards--Coffee themed

 








I've been trying to use my stash of paper pads as well as some older stamp sets.  I've decided that if I don't use them, I need to get rid of them.  I've also been trying to make sets of 4 cards. I think they would make great gifts for neighbors and friends. 


My cards showcase  the Crazy for Coffee paper pad by Your Next Stamp. The fun coffee images are from The Rabbit Hole Designs.  I used dies from Newton's Nook Designs:  Frames & Tags and Circle Frames die sets. The sentiment is from the Perk Up stamp set by The Greeting Farm

I stamped the images and colored with Copic markers. I then fussy cut the images.  Then I cut the vertical striped and adhered to the brown card stock. I placed the zig-zag frame die on the paper and cut the base frame.  I then cut the stitched circle using a NND die.  I stamped the sentiment on the circle.  Then I added the circle on the brown base. I placed the critter on the frame using 3D tape.  At last, I adhered everything to the white card base.

For my cards, I used the newly released A2 Card Layout die set and used the die four times-green, red, yellow, and blue--polka dotted papers from the Bright Basics paper padI then pulled out the rectangular pieces and arranged them vertically on each card base. For first card, I used the Newton's Birthday Trio stamp setI colored the image with Copic markers. My second card features the Newton's Bright Birthday stamp set.

Here's my inspiration!

Deb's spring card features Newton's Umbrella, Rainy Day Doxie, Pastel Basics, Bright Basics, Slimline Frames & Portholes, Sky Builder, and Slimline Frames & Windows by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #springcards, #spring, #catcards, #dogcards, #cardmaking, #cardchallenge

I created a slimline card using a combination of dies from the Slimline Frames & Windows and the Slimline Frames & Portholes die set.  I then distress the skyline before adhering the clouds, sun, and raindrops using the  Sky Builder die set. I added the floating feline from the Newton's Umbrella stamp set the grounded puppy from the Rainy Day Doxie stamp set. I used my Scan 'n' Cut to cut out these images; however, there are coordinating die sets for both. I then paper pieced the umbrellas using polka dotted using papers from the Pastel Basics (rain and puddle) and the Bright Basic (umbrellas) paper pads. I used Copic markers to color all the images.  I love how this turned out and how perfect to send to a friend who lives in rainy Washington!

Debbie's Halloween card features Halloween Woofs, Count Newton, Framework, Labels, Spiderweb, and Halloween Apothecary by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonnook, #halloweencards, #catcards, #cardmaking, #cardmaking

I decided on a Halloween sketch because I was inspired by the challenge-Two Old Bats. I love the green color of their inspiration badge. For my card, I used the green, spider web paper and the ghostly paper from the Halloween Woofs paper pad . I used the postage-edged die from the  Framework die set on these layers. I then used the Spiderweb Hot Foil Plates & Dies with silver foil to make the vertical layer.  I used the Labels Hot Foil Plates and Dies to create the arched element which I then stamped the sentiment using the Halloween Apothecary stamp set.  My star attraction is the little feline from the Count Newton stamp set. I loved how this came out!  Now it's your turn to create a project using the IPC sketch!

Hugs,

Debbie

Here's my inspiration!




For my card, I started with a white card base. I then added a white glitter paper atop the base.  I pulled three coordinating papers from the Birthday Woofs paper pad. I love the purple and chartreuse colors together! I stamped and used my Scan 'n' Cut for the puppy from the Paw-some Birthday stamp set.  I used Copic markers to color him and the presents.  The sentiment is from the  Birthday Roundabout stamp set. This sketch is so fun with pattern papers.  Now it's your turn to play with the sketch!
