Inky Paws Challenge #110 Reminder

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

Here'a a refresher.
Colors Challenge

Create a project using the colors--teal, green, pink, and white.

Today I have some more inspiration for this Challenge:

Believe in the magic of the season by Bobbi features Winter Memories by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Bobbi Lemanski has a special talent of hand drawing her backgrounds. This beautiful square card features a wintery scene filled with birch trees. In her foreground she adds glitter card stock for her children to sled on. Those amazing silhouette children are from the Winter Memories stamp and die set. Bobbi selects the perfect as she has captured the magic of the season in her card!

Dreaming of a pink Christmas by Debbie features Festive Flamingoes, Frames & Flags, and Fancy Edges Tag by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Debbie Owens is back with another flamingo-themed card. This time it's for Christmas! She creates the background with the scallop-edged frame using Frames & Flags die set. She then stamps the flamingo images from the Festive Flamingos stamp set in different directions multiple times. She adds the scallop-edged tag using the Fancy Edges Tag die set with a very tired sloth from the Slothy Christmas stamp set dreaming of a pink Christmas.  The dream bubble is from the Speech Bubbles die set and the little flamingo is from the Cozy Campers stamp set.

Hogs & kisses by Diane features Oink, Frames & Flags, Tumbling Hearts, and Land Borders by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Diane Morales brings us this delightful card.  Her teal background filled with the fluffy heart-shaped clouds (Tumbling Hearts stencil) makes for a wonderful background for the cute little pig from the Oink stamp and die set.  She die cuts this background with the Frames & Flags die set to give it the scallop edges. Using the Land Borders die set, she creates rolling hills for the little guy to play on.  She finishes by stamping the "Hogs & Kisses" sentiments!

Visions of sugar plums by Sue T. features Nutcracker Squeak, Forest Scene Builder, Frames & Flags, and Sweater Weather by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Sue T.'s card is filled absolute sweetness. Beginning with a pink card base, she adds the white scallop-edged frame (Frames & Flags die set) and cuts a large circle out. She pops this layer with dimensional tape. In the circle which is also popped up, she adds pale green trees using the Forest Scene Builder die set. Her pale teal sky is dotted with snowflakes from the Sweater Weather stamp set. The ballerina mouse from the Nutcracker Squeak stamp and die set takes center stage! Adorable!

Be merry by Becky features Poinsettia Blooms and Holiday Greetings by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Becky Noelle creates a more traditional Christmas card by stamping and coloring poinsettias in all four corners of her card. The amazingly colored flowers are from the Poinsettia Blooms stamp set. Don't you love the touches of teal that Becky adds?  She then die cuts the sentiment in dark pink using the Holiday Greetings die set. Elegant and festive!

Cup of Cocoa stamp and die set. She creates a striped circle and stamps a a holiday sentiment from the
Ornamental Wishes stamp set.  The colorful whipped creams and dimensional dots creates an amazingly fantastic holiday card!

Joyful by Debbie features Holiday Fringe, Purr-fect Present, Pines & Holly, Main Street Christmas, and Frames Squared by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Debbie Owens brings holiday joy using the Holiday Fringe stamp set. Using the  Frames Squared die set, she adds a scalloped frame beneath. She adds holly leaves and pines from the Pines & Holly die set before adding the kitty peaking from his box from the Purr-fect Present stamp set. She cuts the Joyful sentiment from the Main Street Christmas die set multiple times and stacks them to give dimension to the sentiment. She adds a jewel to dot the J for her final touch. Fun and festive!

Merry & Bright by Diane features Holiday Fringe, Frames Squared, and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Diane Morales' Merry & Bright shaker card is so festive! She uses the Frames Squared die set to create her card base. Using the challenge colors in bright hues, she wonderfully shades the Holiday Fringe stamp set image and die cuts a heart in the middle. She adds sequins for her shaker elements. Using the Frames & Flags die set, she creates a mini banner and adds the holiday sentiment.

We go together by Sue features Sweater Weather and Petite Snow by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
With the weather getting colder, Sue T.'s card will inspire you to pull out your snuggly sweaters to embrace the season!  Her light snow showers in pink and teal were made using the Petite Snow stencil. She adds two little critters wrapped in their sweaters from the  Sweater Weather stamp and die set. Such a sweet card!

Be merry by Becky features Holiday Foliage, Pines & Holly, Ornament Shaker, and Holiday Greetings by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Becky Noelle creates this amazing card using a combination of dies and a stencil!  Her beautiful background using the Holiday Foliage stencil is the perfect setting for the teal ornament (Ornament Shaker Die set).  Pairing the Holiday Greetings die set with the
Pines & Holly die set, Becky adds accents to the ornament. Great job, Becky!
