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


Fall leaves & pumpkins please by Sue features Autumn, Argyle, and Signs of Fall by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #fallcards, #autumncards, #cardmaking
Sue T. gives us this beautiful autumn card featuring the image from the Signs of Fall stamp and coordinating die set. She adds it to a Kraft card base with the embossed pattern using the Argyle stencil set. Using papers from the Autumn Paper Pad, Sue adds banners with autumn leaves to complete her beautiful card. 



Witch way to my candy by Amy features Newton's Boo-tiful Night, Halloween Meows, Framework, Frames & Flags, and Fancy Edges Tag by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #catcards, #cardmaking, #halloweencards
Amy Tollner adds some glittery black banners (Frames & Flags die set) which adds a perfect amount of bling to her 'scary' Halloween card! She pairs the witch from the Newton's Boo-tiful Night stamp and coordinating die set with the batty paper (cut using the Framework die set) from the Halloween Meows paper pad. Her distressed tag made using the Fancy Edges Tag die set looks spectacular with the paint splatters, stars, and bat!  



Paw-tumn greetings by Claire features Frames & Flags, Newton's Crate, A7 Frames & Banners, and Autumn by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #autumncards, #fallcards, #cardmaking, #catcards
Claire Lamb is back with one of her fabulously colored black kitties!  This cutie is from the Newton's Crate stamp and coordinating die set.  She showcases her crate using papers from the Autumn paper pad. She creates her tag using the Frames & Flags die set and banners using the A7 Frames and Banners die set. The overall effect is one darling autumn card!



Sending you a birthday brew by Debbie features Coffee House, Time for Coffee, Newton Loves Coffee, Frames & Flags, Fancy Edge Tags by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #coffeecards, #coffeelovers, #birthdaycard, #puppycards, #cardmaking
Debbie Owens goes with a caffeinated-puppy-themed card by combining papers from the Coffee House Stories paper pad with the sweet puppy from the Puppy Playtime stamp set.  She adds a mug from the Newton Loves Coffee stamp set. To showcase all the fun papers, she makes a vellum tag using the Fancy Edges Tag die set and heat embosses a sentiment from the  Time for Coffee stamp set.  Those little banners were made using the Frames & Flags die set. Love how her puppy matches the paper!



You're my favorite treat by Diane features Candy Corn, Oval Frames, Halloween Meows, and Trick-or-Treat Kittens by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #candycorn, #newtonsnook, #halloweencards, #cardmaking
Love candy corn?  Then you will LOVE Diane Morales' sweet card.  Using the candy corn paper from the Halloween Meows Paper Pad, she then makes a scallop-edged tag (Oval Frames die set) and stamps it with the perfect sentiment pulled from the Trick or Treat Kittens stamp set. She adds a handful of candy corn using the Candy corn stamp and the coordinating die set.  Don't you love the little smile on the candy's face?

Don't you love how she shaded this trio of Siamese kitties?  To get that stitching around the center panel, Claire uses the  Frames & Flags die set and trims off the scallops.  The sentiment is from the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set. Sweetness!



Be thankful by Debbie features Framework, Frames & Flags, Autumn Newton, Pumpkin Latte, Autumn, and Fancy Edges Tag by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #autumncards, #thankfulcards, #catcards, #cardmaking

She adds some extra pumpkins and leaves using images from the Pumpkin Latte stamp set. Her banners were created using the Frames & Flags die set using coordinating papers from the Autumn paper pad.

Diane Morales uses a trio of the colors to make a striped background die cut using the Frames & Flags die set. She then stamps the beautiful pumpkins from the Autumn Oval stamp set which she frames with a white scallop oval using the Oval Frames die set. Her bold, crisp style is spectacular!

Sue T. uses the challenge colors in a spook-tacular way! She embosses bats on her black card stock (Flying Bats stencil) which she cuts using the postage-edge frame from the Framework die set. She die cuts a circle and has Jack-o-lanterns peeking through using the Jack-o-Lantern stencil. Enjoying all of the Halloween fun is Newton from the Newton's Perfect Pumpkin stamp and die set. She uses a sentiment from the Newton's Boo-tiful Night stamp set stamped on a speech bubble using the Speech Bubbles die set. The added white stars and moons on Newton's hat look amazing!


Eek by Amy features Pug-kin, Spiderweb Oval, Newton's Perfect Pumpkin, Oval Frames, Framework, and Halloween Meows by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #dogcards, #cardmaking, #halloweencards
Hope you're not afraid of spiders because Amy Tollner's card is filled with them!

She continues the spidery theme using the Spiderweb Oval stamp set die cut using the scallop frame from the Oval Frames die set. Her very brave puppy is from the Pug-kin stamp and die set. Oh, in case you missed it, there's a white spider (Newton's Perfect Pumpkin stamp set) dangling from the web! Eeek!



Frankly you're the best by Claire features Franken-Newton, Land Borders, and Circle Frames by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #catcards, #newtonsnook, #halloweencards, #cardmaking
Claire Lamb is back with one of her amazing backgrounds!!! This one features a very large and spooky full moon! Yikes! She makes this amazing moon using the Circle Frames die set to create a mask for it. She uses greens to make the night sky and the Land Borders die set to make the grass. And who is out and about on such a scary night? Our very own Franken-Newton from the Franken-Newton stamp and die set. Fantastically scary!



You gnome me so much by Debbie features Gnome Garden, Oval Frames, Clouds, Land Borders, and Sea Borders by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #gnomecards, #cardmaking
To calm your nerves from all that scariness is Debbie Owens with a unique take on the challenge colors. Deb pulls the sweet gnome from the Gnome Garden stamp set and sets him among black-gingham hills and green grass using the Land Borders and Sea Borders die sets. She cuts a scalloped oval from the card base (Oval Frames die set) and has green puffy clouds in the background (Clouds stencil). Great way to showcase these fun colors!

Here's some inspiration from the IPC Design Team:



Diane Morales uses the challenge colors for this sweet, autumn scene.  Using the Frames Squared die set, Diane makes a scallop-square card base. She then uses a plaid paper from the Autumn paper pad for her sky and makes her grass using the Land Borders die set.  Enjoying this nice autumn day is one of the darling mice from the Autumn Mice stamp and die set. So cute!



Be thankful by Sue features Beautiful Blossoms, Autumn Newton, and Speech Bubbles by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #thankyoucards, #cardmaking
Sue T. opts to use the challenge colors for a gorgeous floral card. She uses the large speech bubble die (Speech Bubbles die set) to make her black element and adds beautiful flowers using images from the Beautiful Blossoms stamp and die set. On her cream card base, she stamps "Be Thankful" using a sentiment from the Autumn Newton stamp set.  Beautiful!


Fab(boo)lous by Amy features Witchy Newton, Spooky Roundabout, Halloween Trio, Oval Frames, Banner Trio, Frames & Flags, and Halloween Woofs by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #halloweencards, #catcards, #cardmaking
Amy Tollner was inspired to use the colors for this bright, not-too-spooky Halloween card! She colors the kitty witch's boot (Witchy Newton stamp and die set) in a bright green and places it on a vellum oval (Oval Frames die set).  She pulls the batty paper from the Halloween Woofs paper pad cut using the scallop-edged frame die (Frames & Flags die set).  She heat embosses the white sentiment (Spooky Roundabout stamp set) on a black banner (Banner Trio die set).  She finishes it off with a couple of spooky bats (Halloween Trio Die set).  Fab(boo)lous!

She adds some trees (Forest Scene Builder die set) to her full-moon scene and uses the Land Borders die set to create her ground. Two critters decked out in their costumes from the Halloween Pile stamp and die set bravely walk through the scene escorted by a trio of bats. To finish off her card, Claire pulls a sentiment from the Spiderweb Oval stamp set. 


Made for each other by Debbie features Creepy Cameos, Franken-Newton, Framework, and Halloween Meows by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #halloweencards, #catcards, #cardmaking
 Debbie Owens' Halloween card looks like it's set in a hallway manor. She creates her scene using the green-striped wallpaper from the Halloween Meows paper pad. Deb cuts the paper using the postage-edge die from the Framework die set. Look at the portrait of the Bride of Franken-Newton (Franken-Newton stamp set) in her spooky frame (Creepy Cameos retiring stamp set, which is on sale for $4.99!). Enjoying that portrait is our very own Franken-Newton as he shambles down the hallway!  So clever!
