Inky Paws Challenge #106 Winner!
We've chosen one RANDOM winner using random.org to receive a $20 Store Credit to Newton's Nook Designs!
Amanda Wilcox demonstrates how to stretch one's NND stamp sets. She begins her Halloween-themed card with an orange polka-dotted pattern paper. She then adds 4 small rectangles with a spiderweb pattern. She creates a black circle and pops it up with foam tape. She adds a green banner with the sentiment. She then stamps and colors the mouse and pumpkins from the Autumn Mice stamp and die set. She then hand draws faces on her pumpkins thereby turning an autumn stamp set into a Halloween one! Her splattering of stars and sequins adds a nice touch of bling! Spook-tacular!
Congrats to Amanda! Don't forget to send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to claim your $20 store credit! (It's easiest if you already have an account set up in our shop)

Mugdha caught our eye with her night sky in shades of purple and her creative use of the kitty on his orange scooter from the Newton Scoots By stamp set. She has her kitty driving through a graveyard with tall gray grass with a haunted house in the background. So cute and clever!
Paula M.'s use of nontraditional Halloween colors makes her card really stand out. Using the Clouds Stencil she creates her sky in purples teals, and oranges. She then adds black grass on which she white embosses the sentiment from the Witchy Newton stamp set. She then adds the kitty image from the same stamp set and colors in purple, teal and orange. She adds some black bats in the sky. A very striking card!
Bunny creates a perfect card for someone who has a Halloween birthday! She begins by selecting a grid-like pattern paper in bright Halloween colors. For her center panel, she adds a zigzag pattern paper at the bottom and a black scored paper at the top. She adds a white stripe on which she stamps the sentiment from the Newton Loves Coffee stamp set. Don't you love how "brews" becomes punny when used on a Halloween card? She then adds her cute kitty peeking up at his coffee mug, again, from the Newton Loves Coffee stamp set. She finishes with a spiderweb in the upper corner. Super fun and clever!
Mary Reiner shows us her creativity by turning ordinary candy corn from the Candy Corn stamp set into garland hanging from the gray fence she die cut using the Fence die set. She uses the kitty with his ball of twine from the Newton Unwinds stamp and die set as the means for hanging up the candy corn. She adds grass using the Land Borders die set and black trees using the Forest Scene Builder die set. She places her whole scene upon a black scallop-edged border using the Frames & Flags die set. She die cuts her sentiment in black letters for her finishing touch!
