Jess Gerstner creates a set of coordinating cards using 5 different sketches!  Using an assortment of pattern papers, Jess showcases a different piglet image from the Oink stamp and die set on each card.  She adds  enamel hearts or wooden embellishments on each card for a finishing touch!  These sweet cards will definitely make the recipient "Squeal" in delight!

Hey There! by Holly features Playful Pandas, Serene Stripes, and Frames Squared by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Using the very versatile sketch #3, Holly Endress turns it horizontally to create this amazingly sweet card!  Holly uses her favorite stamp set, Playful Panda, because she loves the fun playful images and the sentiments that work for so many occasions. She creates the background using the Serene Stripes stencil. She then creates a beautiful blue background and adds the trio of pandas using the Playful Panda stamp and die set.  She die cuts the circle using the Frames Squared die set and stamps the sentiment from the Playful Panda set.

Thanks a bunch by Larissa features Dainty Daisies and Frames Squared by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Larissa Heskett creates this beautiful shaker card by mirroring the IPC #74 challenge image as well as the colors. She stamps the flowers from Dainty Daisies stamp set and adds it to the gingham card base using the Frames Squared die set. Using the scallop-edged die, she creates a shaker and adds yellow, white, and black sequins.  She stamps her sentiment in teal on the circle die from the  Frames Squared and adds a black border.  

Ice cream solves everything by Maria features Newton's Ice Cream by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Maria L. Russell creates this amazing sun set with swaying palm trees in the background which makes for a perfect setting for an ice cream treat. Maria colors the trio of ice-cream lovin' felines from the Newton's Summer Treats stamp (currently on sale for $11.99) and die set fabulously.  Her glossy accents on the fudge and sparkles on some scoops makes these cold treats look scrumptious!

Meowci by Naki features Newton Dreams of Paris, Sky Borders, and Essential Alphabet by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Nakaba Rager uses IPC #19 which was her very first Inky Paws Challenge!  She chose to use the same stamp set, Newton Dreams of Paris stamp and die set, to create this darling card for our 100th challenge. She adds some clouds using the Sky Borders die set on her pale blue background. For her sentiment, she uses the Essential Alphabet die set. She sprinkles some sequins on for a bit of bling! Super cute!

Ciao by Tatiana features Newton Dreams of Italy and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Tatiana Trafimovich celebrates her love of the Newon Dreams of Italy stamp set by combining a favorite sketch, color, and theme challenge. She lightly stamps iconic buildings of Italy with bottles of wine and watercolors select portions in red, green, and white and die cuts using the Frames & Flags die set. She adds the adorable Newton (Newton Dreams of Italy stamp and die set) in his sporty Italia short and embosses the sentiment in white on a black banner.  Some splatters of paint and sequins finish off this remarkable card!
