Here's my inspiration!



Celebrate by Debbie features Newton's 4th of July, Slimline Frames & Windows, and A7 & Banners by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #catcards, #4thofjuly, #cardmaking

I used the Newton's 4th of July stamp set with Echo Park's God Bless America 6x6 paper pad.  I am loving the patterns of this pad, and it works wonderfully with the challenge colors as well as this stamp set!  I made a navy blue frame using the Slimline Frames & Windows die set and a trio of papers from the paper pad.  After stamping, fussy cutting, and adding foam tape, I place an image on each window.  I used the little banner from the A7 Frames & Banners die set for the sentiment.  The card works great for either the 4th of July or a birthday!

Now it's your turn to use the challenge colors with your NND products.  Link up at

Inky Paws Challenge #175 Reminder

  

The fun continues at Inky Paws!  





Use the theme One Layer Card with your NND products.


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



Find your paradise by Debbie features Paradise Palms by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #paradisecards
I used the scallop-edged die (Oval Framesto create a stencil out of acetate to mask the edge of my card. I then used some Distress Oxide inks to create a muted background of water and sky.  Then I used the Paradise Palms stamp set with different colored inks to create the islands and palm trees. I used a white gel pen to add some dimension.  This is a super simple card, and I'm still trying to determine whether I like the muted colors on the cream card base.  I usually go for brighter, bolder colors.  But, hey it's good to go outside my comfort zone and try new things.  

Now it's your turn. Link up at Inky Paws!

Inky Paws Challenge #175

  

   Welcome to a new Inky Paws Challenge!

This challenge is a

Theme Challenge


Use the theme One Layer Card with your Newton's Nook Designs products.

Here's my inspiration!



Life is better at the beach by Debbie features Sunscape, Summer Moments, and Hills & Grass by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #summercards, #cardmaking

For my card, I created my own masking stencil using the large oval die from the Oval Frames die set out of some acetate.  I then stamped the ocean-wading lady from the  Summer Moments stamp set. After making a mask for her, I then used the Sunscape stencil and the Hills & Grass stencil sets to create the background.  I added some glossy accents to the shell for a bit of shine, but otherwise, I left this truly a one layer card without added embellishments.  

Now it's your turn to create a one-layer card using your NND products!

You have until Friday, June 17, 2022 (midnight CST) to link up your one layer card and to be eligible for the $20 NND store credit.

Special Delivery by Debbie features Newton's Happy Mail, Fence, Tree Line, Land Borders, and Sky Scene Builder by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #catcards, #cardmaking
I decided to create a fun scene using the current sketch.  I used the Land Borders die set to create the hill and grass. I added the fence using the Fence die.  In the background is a trio of trees distressed using the Tree Line stencil.  I added some fluffy clouds using the Sky Scene Builder die set.  All of this is for the sweet feline from the Newton's Happy Mail stamp set.

Sketch Challenge


Here's my inspiration!


Thinking of Mew by Debbie features Circle Frames and Newton's Sick Day by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #getwellcards, #catcards, #cardmaking

For my card, I scored some horizontal lines and added checkered Washi tape. I then repeatedly stamped the medicine bottle, Bandaid, and tissue box on the remaining portions of the background.  I added a black circle die cut using the Circle Frames die set and added nurse Newton from the Newton's Sick Day stamp set. I added a pop of red by adding the red tissue box.  I stamped the sentiment on a little banner and stapled it onto the card.  I hope my card has inspired you to join us at Inky Paws!

Have a llama fun on your birthday by Debbie features Loveable Llamas, Speech Bubbles, Mountains, Clouds,Hills & Grass, and Cycling Friends by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #birthdaycards, #cardmaking

I decided to play with the ever, cute llamas from the Loveable Llamas stamp set. These two just love celebrating birthday parties, especially in the Andes mountains!  I created the mountain scene using several stencils, including the Mountains stencil, the Clouds stencil, and the Hills & Grass stencil set. I added some glossy accented balloons from the Cycling Friends stamp set. I stamped the sentiment on a speech bubble cut using the Speech Bubbles die set.  Time to party!

Find you paradise by Debbie features Newton Loves Tacos, Retro Sun & Palms, and Paradise Palms by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #catcards, #tropicalcards, #cardmaking
I am just loving the newly released Newton Loves Tacos stamp set!  For this card, I was inspired to make a tropical setting for the margarita-loving feline! I used the Retro Sun & Palms stencil set to create the pink, orange, yellow sunset against the palm trees silhouettes. For my green element, I made a lime margarita!  I pulled the sentiment from the Paradise Palms stamp set.  Does anyone else feel like listening to Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville? LOL

I can't wait to see what you create using these colors!

Spec-TACO-lar birthday wishes by Debbie features Cycling Friends, Newton Loves Taco, and Confetti by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #catcards, #cardmaking, #tacocards,

I was completely blown away with the newly released Newton Loves Taco stamp set!  These felines know how to enjoy life!  My card begins with a confetti background using the Confetti stencil and red, yellow, and green distress inks.  I then add two of the kittens from this set.  First is the taco cat!  This image just makes me smile!  I also added the margarita-drinkin' fella because tacos and margaritas---what a purrfect combination!  For more celebration fun, I threw in some sequins a small bouquet of balloons (Cycling Friends stamp set).  Now it's your turn?  What NND stamp set will you use to create your birthday cards?  Link up below for a chance to win a $20 store credit.

Inky Paws Challenge #172

 

Time to reveal a new Inky Paws Challenge!




Use the theme--Birthday

I love this challenge because you can never have too many birthday cards on hand, AND there are so many amazing NND products that can be used to create a birthday card!  Puppies, flowers, coffee, and, of course, CATS!

You have until Friday, May 6, 2022  (Midnight CST).  One lucky (and randomly selected) person will get a $20 store credit to Newton's Nook Designs!  

Here's my inspiration!


I love the kittens from the Smitten Kittens stamp set, so I pulled this sweet image and colored her in grays in honor of my female cat, Catapult. (Her 10th birthday was on April 8th, so she was my muse!)  I used the two scallop-edged circle dies from the Circle Frames die set. On the bigger circle, I tried my hand at ink splattering. For the smaller pink circle, I heat embossed the image from the  Birthday Roundabout stamp set.  I placed the circles on a 3 1/2" x 5 1/4" teal card base which was in my scrap pile. I then stamped a sentiment on a banner from the Banner Trio die set and then stamped the bigger sentiment from the Birthday Essentials stamp set.  A birthday hat from the Newton's Birthday Bash stamp set and a few sequins were added for the finishing touches. The smaller card base allows the ink-spattered circle to hang off the edges giving the card a bit of pizzazz!

Now it's your turn to create one, two, or even three? birthday cards for the Inky Paws Birthday-Theme Challenge. Remember someone will win a $20 store credit just in time to purchase some amazing products from Newton's Nook Designs!  (Did you see the April release? Wowza!)

Today I'm sharing my card to inspire you!


Thanks so much by Debbie features Newton's Blooms, Framework, Frames & Flags, and Circle Frames by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #springcards, #catcards, #cardmaking

I love the bright colors of the floral paper from the  Springtime paper pad! I stamped the Newton's Blooms image and colored the flowers to match the paper.  I then pulled out the lavender striped paper from the same pad and die cut both using dies from the Frames & Flags and Frameworks die sets. For my circular element of the sketch, I used a die from the Circle Frames die set. I heat embossed the sentiment in white on a black banner ( Frames & Flags die set).  I love the bright colors against the black!  Well, I hope I've inspired you to join us at Inky Paws!  
Hugs, Debbie

Here's my inspiration!


Thinking of you by Debbie features Circle Frames, Springtime, Frames & Flags, and Captivated Kittens by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #catcards, #springcards, #cardmaking

I love using pattern paper for sketch challenges. Newton's Nook Designs' new Springtime paper pad has fabulous designs and pretty colors that work wonderfully with all the spring stamp sets.  Today's card features the butterfly chasing kitten from the Captivated Kittens stamp set. I used the Land Borders die set to cut the green polka dotted grass. Then I used the scallop-edged circle from the Circle Frames die set.  I love the white cloud outlines against the blue sky!  I used the round-edged die from the Frames & Flags die set to create the two rectangular layers.  I decided against a banner instead I used twine from a recent NND order to create a bow.  I love how this card turned out. Now's it's your turn to create a project using your NND supplies and the challenge sketch!


Hugs,
Debbie

Mom, Thank Mew!


I am so excited to share this card!  Being a fur baby mommy, I love getting presents from my fur babies which inspired me to create this Mom's Day card. This is an A7 sized card sporting dies from Newton's Nook Designs--A7 Frames & Banners. I then used NND's Welcome New Cat stamp set.  I love this new stamp set!  These kittens with all their toys just makes me smile! I then used NND's Essential Alphabet die set to cut out the letters which had little paw prints inked on (Petite Paw Print stencil).  I then heat embossed the sentiments using white embossing powder.  I loved how I repurposed this stamp set for a mother's day card!  I can't wait for my cats to send it to me!  LOL

Challenges I'm entering this card:


SAS4Kids: Cards 4 Moms/Special Ladies




 

Just Crusin'


Masculine cards are much easier to make when you have the Car Show stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps!  I paired this Nova with the Retro Sun & Palms stencil set from Newton's Nook Designs. I can just imagine cruising in this card in Southern California!
