Inky Paws Challenge #114 Reminder

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

Here'a a refresher.
Sketch Challenge

Create a project using the sketch. 

Today I have some more inspiration for this Challenge:

Coffee is always a good idea by Becky features Newton Loves Coffee by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
 Becky Noelle creates a purr-fect blend with her coffee & cat card!  For her striped-paper layer, Becky zig-zag stitches around the edges for a nice touch of texture. Then she adds her center panel on which she stamps the caffeine-loving kitty from the Newton Loves Coffee stamp set. (Don't you love how he looks like he sneaking a sip?)  She adds a pink bow for her final touch!  

Baby it's cold outside by Crystal features Frozen Friends by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
It might be cold outside, but Crystal Komera's snow people will warm your heart! With a baby blue and white color scheme, Crystal creates her layer with a shaker element full of sparkling 'snow'.  She adds the darling snow couple from the Frozen Friends stamp and die set. The red elements really pop against the cool, crisp blue and white colors. 

Dream by Debbie features Newton's Antics, Pawprint Shaker, Newton's Day Dream, Speech Bubbles, and Framework by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Debbie Owens card features a sleeping calico kitty from the Newton's Antics stamp set. Her layers are die cut from coordinating papers using dies from the Framework and Frames & Flags die sets. For her center panel, she uses the kitty and fish skeleton dies from the Pawprint Shaker die set for the sketch's center element. She creates a dream bubble for her sleeping feline using the Speech Bubbles die set and adds the 'dream' sentiment and fish skeletons from the Newton's Day Dream and Cat-itude stamp sets respectively. 

Love by Diane features Newton Dreams of Italy, Darling Hearts, Tumbling Hearts, and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Diane Morales' card will have you yearning for a romantic getaway in Venice!  Using the Tumbling Hearts stencil, she adds a sea of hearts, giving her card texture. She then uses the center die from the Frames & Flags die set to create her panel.  On the bottom, she adds blue water for the gondola from Newton Dreams of Italy stamp and die set to drift upon.  To set the mood, Diane adds a large heart using the Darling Hearts die set behind the kitty gondolier as well as the bold, black sentiment!  {sigh}

Happy blooming birthday by Sue features Peony Blooms, Loads of Blooms, and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Sue T. gives us a taste of spring with her floral card paired with striped pattern paper. Using dies from the Frames & Flags die set, she creates her two layers on which she adds her bouquet of pink flowers from the Peony Blooms stamp and die set.  She creatively uses a sentiment from the Loads of Blooms stamp set and stamps it on a die cut circle (Frames Squared die set).  Her bows of pink and lime green add a beautiful touch to this spring card!

I hope these projects have inspired you to play along!  Remember, you have until this Friday, January 17, 2020 to enter. There's a prize involved too, so don't delay - view all the entries and see more inspiration on our Inky Paws Challenge here!
