Here's a refresher.

Use your NND products with the theme-Holiday!


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

Happy Holi-dogs by Diane features Christmas Time, Christmas Puppies, and Slimline Frames & Windows by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #dogcards, #puppycards, #christmascards #holidaycards
Diane Morales showcases these sweet puppies from the Christmas Puppies stamp set and die set on her duo of tags.  She pulls festive papers from the Christmas Time paper pad as well as the banner die from the Slimline Frames & Window die set. These sweet tags will definitely adorn packages quite nicely.



Amy Tollner creates a lovely living room scene just perfect for these tired fur balls.  She creates a subtle "wallpaper" using the Serene Stripes stencil die cut using the scallop-edged frame die from the Frames & Flags die set.  Asleep on her pretty blue chair are the fur balls from the Christmas Nap stamp and die set. Her glittery sentiment is also from the Christmas Nap die set.  



Claire Lamb uses light distressing of pink for her living room walls.  She, too, is showcasing the Christmas Nap stamp and die set.  Aren't her fur babies just adorable atop the blue, plush chair? Claire pulls the sentiment from the Winter Birds stamp set.  Definitely a warm, cozy scene!



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
Debbie Owens creates a window-like shaker card looking outside at the festive critters from the  Caroling Newton stamp set singing to their hearts' content.  She uses dies from the Frames & Flags die set to create the window frame. For her background, she uses the Evergreens stencil with blue deco foil.  Other products used include the speech bubble from the Speech Bubbles die set and the Land Borders die set for the snowy ground.  Doesn't the white glitter make for the perfect fluffy snow?  



I hope these projects have inspired you to play along!  Remember, you have until this Friday, December 2, 2022 to enter. There's a prize involved too, so don't delay - see more inspiration on our Inky Paws Challenge here!

May your holiday happiness reach new heights by Diane features Snowflake Oval, Oval Frames, Holiday Heights, and Slimline Frames & Windows by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #christmascards, #holidaycards, #catcards, #wintercards, #cardmaking
 Diane Morales uses non-traditional colors for her oval-shaped holiday card.  To make her shape, she uses the Oval Frames die set which frames the snowflakes from the Snowflake Oval stamp set. She then adds a pink, yes pink!, Christmas tree with the two mischievous kittens from the Holiday Heights stamp and coordinating die set.  She adds a big teal banner with the sentiment using a die from the Slimline Frames & Window die set.  So cute!



Merry Christmas by Amy features Snowfall, Framework, Forest Scene Builder, Frames & Flags, Holiday Heights, and Land Borders by Newton's Nook; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #puppycards, #wintercards, #holidaycards, #christmascards, #cardmaking
Amy Tollner continues the non-traditional colors for her holiday card.  Her pastel background comes alive with the added snowflakes (Snowfall stencil) and the white wintry trees (Forest Scene Builder die set).  She uses the Land Borders die set for her ground. She, too, uses the Holiday Heights stamp and die set, but Amy chooses the puppy image from this set.  She places her sentiment on a banner (Frames & Flags die set) and uses the Framework die set for the postage-stamp edging.  Her added birds and squirrel (Forest Scene Builder die set) completes her amazing card!



Joyful tidings by Claire features Christmas Tree Line and Heartfelt Holidays by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #holidaycards, #christmascards, #cardmaking
Need more non-traditional holiday colors?  Then you are going to love Claire Lamb's bright rainbow of holiday trees!  Using the Christmas Tree Line stencil, Claire adds rows of trees in bright hues of the rainbow.  She then adds a trio of sentiments from the Heartfelt Holidays stamp set. The white embossing on black really pop against the bright colors!  A sprinkling of sequins completes this festive card!



Bright and merry by Debbie features Poinsettia Blooms, Music, and Joyful Tags by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #christmascards, #cardmaking
Debbie Owens breaks the team's non-traditional colors trend!  She goes with the more classic red & green colors using the Poinsettia Blooms stamp set.  (This set is retiring and is only $7.49!  Be sure to grab your set before they are gone!) She adds her poinsettias on a gold foiled musical score using the Music stencil.  She continues the gold with her embossed sentiment on black using the Joyful Tags stamp set. Simply gorgeous!

latest Inky Paws Challenge!

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

Here's a refresher.

Use your NND products with the sketch above.


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


Debbie Owens creates a comfy Christmas scene inside a barn featuring a trio of barnyard critters from the Dairy Christmas stamp set. She adds a bale of hay to feast on (Moo stamp set) as well as some wall art featuring the barn from the same set.  The sentiment comes from the Christmas Campers stamp set. To make the stitched wall art, Deb uses the A7 Frames & Banners die set. Such a darling country Christmas card!



May your holidays be filled with all the joys of the season by Diane features Frames Squared, Christmas Time, Circle Frames, and Holiday Haul by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #holidaycards, #christmascards
Diane Morales's festive square card was made using the Frames Squared die set. She adds red and green papers from the Christmas Time paper pad. She adds the sentiment to a scallop-edged circle using the Circle Frames die set. Her blue truck from the Holiday Haul stamp and die set is filled with holiday goodies.  She adds a few snowflakes to complete her holiday scene!  



Amy Tollner's card is bright and super playful with the mischievous puppy from the Christmas Puppies stamp and die set.  She adds lots of silvery paw prints using the Pawprints stencil and a silver embossed sentiment.  Also used was the scallop-edged circle from the Circle Frames die set.  This will brighten any dog-lover's holiday season!



Claire Lamb's vintage truck (Holiday Haul stamp and die set) is filled to capacity with lots of presents and holiday decorations!  Love how she creates a wintry night scene filled with snow showers as the truck travels to a loved-one's home to celebrate the holiday season!

Pa rum pum pum pum by Debbie features Nutcrackers, Frames Squared, and Music by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #holidaycards, #cardmaking, #christmascards, #nutcrackercards
Did anyone else start humming along with Debbie Owens' card?

Fall is my favorite color by Debbie features Harvest Haul, Plaid, Circle Frames, Fall Fringe, Frames & Flags, and Pumpkin Latte by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #autumncards, #fallcards, #cardmaking, #truckcards, #vintagecarcards
Debbie Owens' plaid background (Plaid Stencil) gives her card a warm, autumn feel.  She adds a blue vintage truck (Harvest Haul stamp set) filled with a bushel of dark red apples and a pile of coral-colored pumpkins. To complete her card, she uses the Circle Frames die set for the Kraft circle, Frames & Flags die set for the card base, and a sentiment pulled from the Fall Fringe stamp set.  A beautiful card with a warm, flannel feel!




'Tis the season to pile on the holiday cheer by Diane features Holiday Heights, Snowflake Oval, and Oval Frames by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #snowmancards, #holidaycards, #christmascards, #puppycards, #cardmaking
