Inky Paws Challenge #190 Reminder

 

Welcome to week 2 of the current Inky Paws Challenge. 


This challenge is all about LOVE!

We're the perfect mix by Debbie features Love Quarry, Land Borders, Slimline Frames & Windows, and Love & Chocolate by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #chocolate, #cardmaking, #valentinescards 

  

I used three vehicles from the Love Quarry stamp set for this sweet card just perfect for a little boy!  I placed my vehicles on little squares made using the Slimline Frames & Windows die set, and those heart filled hills were made using paper from the Love & Chocolate paper pad and the Land Borders die set.  I added some little hearts to balance the card, and then stamped the sentiment.  


I hope you are inspired to join us at Inky Paws!

Hugs,

Debbie

Love you to bits by Debbie features Framewok, Frames & Flags, Love Bots, A7 Frames & Banners, and Love & Meows by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #lovecards, #valentinescards
I am showcasing two darling robots from the Love Bots stamp set. I pair them with designer papers from the Love & Meows paper pad. To create all my layers,  I use several die sets. They include: Heart Frames die set, Framework die set, Frames & Flags die set, and the A7 Frames & Banners die set. I think the gray tones will make this a darling masculine Valentine's card. 


Now it's your turn to link up your NND project using the challenge sketch!

Ridin' Into Another Year


This card was also inspired by the sketch challenge at Sunday Stamps.
I really like the sketch, and I ALWAYS need birthday cards which inspired me to join  the AAA Birthday Challenge again!


I started by embossing waves (source unknown) on my card base.  I used papers from the Newton's Nook Designs' Summertime paper pad with the coordinating VW bug stamp from the Beach Bound stamp set. In addition, I used die sets from NND:  Frames & Flags and Heart Frames.  A super fun sketch that works wonderfully with coordinating papers and stamps!

Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs,
Debbie


 

Birthday and Boxes


This card was inspired by the sketch challenge at Sunday Stamps.
I really like the sketch, and I ALWAYS need birthday cards which inspired me to join  the AAA Birthday Challenge, too!


For my card, I used a heart embossing folder (source unknown) with papers from Newton's Nook Designs (Love & Meows paper pad) with the coordinating stamp set: Newton Loves Boxes.  In addition, I used die sets from NND:  Frames & Flags and Heart Frames.


Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs,
Debbie

Inky Paws Challenge #189 Reminder

  

Welcome to week 2 of the current Inky Paws Challenge. 


This is a sketch challenge that works wonderfully with your scraps of pattern papers. 

  


My inspiration:


Happy birthday by Debbie features Newton Loves Cake, Speech Bubbles, Frames & Flags, and Birthday Party by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #birthdaycards, #catcards, #cardmaking
This sketch works so well with pattern papers. I wanted to challenge myself NOT to make a Valentine's card. I went with a birthday theme using Newton from the Newton Loves Cake stamp set for my "heart" element. For all the sketch layers, I pulled papers from the Birthday Party paper pad. I used the Frames & Flags die set to make the scallop-edges to all the layers. I then stamped the sentiment on a speech bubble using the Speech Bubbles die set. I love the chartreuse, orange, and teal color combination, so I colored my cake accordingly.  Again, this is a super fun sketch, so I hope you will come join us!

I can't espresso how much you  bean to me by Debbie features Caffeinated Cats and Time for Coffee by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #catcards, #cardmaking, #coffeelovers, #coffeecards
I changed the orientation of the sketch for my caffeinated card.  I sparingly colored the image from the Caffeinated Cats stamp set and added banners in shades of brown. On my heart element, I stamp the sentiment and coffee-themed accents using images from the Time for Coffee stamp set. 

Now it's your turn to link up your NND project using the challenge sketch!

Inky Paws Challenge #188 Reminder

 

Don't forget - 
There's still time to play along with our 

last Inky Paws Challenge of 2022!


  
Have you had a chance to make a card for our latest Inky Paws Challenge

Here's a refresher.

Use the colors--TealKraftSilver, and White 
with your NND products.


Today I'm sharing a fun slim line card: 

Be merry by Debbie features Slimline Frames & Windows, Slimline Frames & Portholes, Birthday Party, Newton Celebrates, and Holiday Greetings by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #holidaycards, #birthdaycards, #cardmaking

I combined the Slimline Frames & Windows and the Slimline Frames & Portholes die sets to create 
the layers for my card. I pulled the teal present papers from the Birthday Party paper pad and some silver glitter paper.  I added the celebrating critters from the Newton Celebrates stamp set. Using more silver glitter paper, I cut the sentiment using the Holiday Greetings die set.  I love how the paper and the stamp set pair together so well.  

Now it's your turn to link up your NND project using the challenge colors!

Enjoy the magic of the season by Debbie features Snowflake Oval, Holiday Heights, and Oval Frames by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #wintercards, #holidaycards, #cardmaking, #snowmancards

I created an oval card base using the  Oval Frames die set.  Using the same die set, I cut out the silver glitter scalloped frame.  I added the image from the Snowflake Oval stamp set.  I colored some of the snowflakes with teal Copic markers.  I fussy cut the inside of this oval image and placed a Kraft piece of paper on which I heat embossed the sentiment from the Snowflake Oval stamp set.  I then added the snowman and helpful puppy from the  Holiday Heights stamp set.  Didn't it turn out cute?  Love how these stamp sets can be mixed and matched for unique designs!

Inky Paws Challenge #187 Reminder

 

Happy Monday!  Hope you had a nice holiday weekend!  The current Inky Paws Challenge continues until Friday, so be sure to link up your Holiday Themed project!




Use the above theme with your NND products!

Meow to the world by Debbie features Evergreens, Speech Bubble, Caroling Newton, Land Borders, and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #catcards, #holidaycards, #cardmaking, #christmascards


I started my card by using blue deco foil and the Evergreens stencil.  I used Distress Oxide Inks to distress the evening sky in shades of lavender.  I added some snowy ground using the Land Borders die set.  I colored the trio of kitties from the Caroling Newton stamp in shades of purples and blues.  I added the tiny mouse from the same set with some dimensional tape.  The sentiment was stamped on a speech bubble using the Speech Bubbles die set.  Once I had this all adhered, I cut out the "window frame" using dies from the Frames & Flags die set.  I created a shaker card by adding white glitter. Despite my best effort to anti-static this clear plastic, some of the glitter still adhered to the "glass."  At first, I was very annoyed, but then I realized it looked like frost on the window.  Quite realistic!  

Well that does it for my shaker card, now it's your turn!  I can't wait to see what you create!
Hugs,
Debbie

Bright and merry by Debbie features Poinsettia Blooms,

I used the retiring Poinsettia Blooms stamp set. This set is currently only $7.49, so be sure to grab your set before they are sold out.  I placed these beautiful flowers on a golden music score by using the Music stencil and gold Deco Foil.  For my sentiment, I used the Merry & Bright stamp from the Joyful Tags stamp set.  I heat embossed the image in gold on the black card stock and added some jute twine for the tag.  I love how this card turned out!  

So what will you create for the Inky Paws Holiday Theme Challenge?  I can't wait to see!

Today I have a darling card featuring three barnyard critters from the Dairy Christmas stamp set!  I set them inside a snug barn using some red wood grain pattern paper.  I create a nice picture using A7 Frames & Banners die set for the stitched frame.  I added a little red barn from the Moo stamp set with the sentiment from the Christmas Campers stamp set.  A bit of holly was added to the corners (Dairy Christmas).  I also added a bale of hay to complete the scene.
