Happy Birthday by Bobbi features Birthday Essentials and Cocktail Mixers by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
 Bobbi Lemanski chose IPC#47 for her favorite color challenge.  She created an amazing background in the challenge colors then stamped and die cut the cocktails from the Cocktail Mixer stamp and die set. using the same colors. She popped the images up using dimensional tape. Using sentiments from the Birthday Essentials stamp set, she completes this festive birthday card!

IPC#4 Sketch

Relax by Debbie features Floaty Goat, Seashells, Land Borders and Sea Borders by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Debbie Owens chose sketch IPC#4 in honor of the first time she participated in an Inky Paws Challenge!  For her card, she used the Seashell stencil with distress ink and matte texture paste.  She die cuts using the Land Border die set.  For her middle stripe, she blends shades of blue and and cuts using the Sea Borders die set. She layers to create a river between the seashore and die cuts using the rounded-edge die from the Framework die set.  She adds the goat from the Floaty Goat stamp set and stamps the sentiment from the Newton's Summer Vacation stamp set.

Diane Morales chose IPC#27--Kraft Paper and Sparkle--because it was her very 1st Inky Paw Challenge. To begin her card, she used the scalloped-edged die from the Framework to create her base. She embosses the panel in gold using the flower image the Newton's New Year stamp set. She then cuts out the balloon shape using the Balloon Shaker die. She embosses the sentiment from the Uplifting Wishes stamp set and places it behind her kraft panel using dimensional tape. She then colors and the kitty from the Newton's New Year stamp and die cuts it using the coordinating die.

Oops by Sue features Naughty Newton and Newton Cleansup by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Sue T. chose the IPC#15--Add a Little Sparkle--as her favorite theme challenge.  She lightly blends a portion of her base, then adds her calico kitty from Newton Cleans Up stamp and die.  This little feline has been having too much fun with the glitter which Sue cleverly adds to her card base.  Adding the "Oops" sentiment from the Naughty Newton stamp set pulls this clever card together!

Smile by Becky features Tropical Leaves and Uplifting Wishes by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Becky Noelle selected IPC#33--Ombre'--as her favorite past challenge. She creates her ombre' effect using the Tropical Leaves stencil on a dark gray card base. She then uses the "Smile" sentiment from the Uplifting Wishes stamp set. She spatters some white to pull this amazing card together!
