Inky Paws Challenge #144 Reminder


Don't forget - 

There's still time to play along with our latest Inky Paws Challenge!

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

Here'a a refresher.

Create a project using the below sketch. 

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

Chillin' with my peeps by Amy features Basketweave, Newton's Peeps, Clouds, Hills & Grass, Newton's Birdbath, and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #catcards, #cardmaking, #eastercards, #springcards
Amy Tollner's pastel Easter card is just too cute!  With a pastel blended background, Amy adds shimmer using the Basketweave stencil and texture paste.  She then creates a cloudy sky using the Clouds stencil which is die cut using the scalloped frame from the Circle Frames die set and adds grass using the Hills & Grass stencil. Pastel banners are die cut using the Frames & Flags die set.  She stamps and colors the kitty with his Easter basket using the Newton's Peeps stamp and die set. She colors her peeps in pink, lavender, and yellows!  So cute!  For added interest, she adds more chicks and butterflies from the Newton's Birdbath stamp and die set butterflies.  Seriously, this is amazingly cute!

Happy Purr-thday by Claire by Newton's Birthday Balloons and Confetti by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #catcard, #birthdaycard, #inkypaws, #cardmaking
Claire Lamb knows how to celebrate birthdays in cuteness!  She partially distresses a pastel background. Then she uses the Confetti stencil to add texture and shimmer.  She pops on some little clouds and adds the kitten with his colorful balloons from the Newton's Birthday Balloons stamp and die set.  She adds a black and white diagonal banner and a white one with the sentiment.  So much cuteness!

Espresso your love by Debbie features Newton's Mug, Mugs, Love Cafe, Frames & Flags, and Circle Frames by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #catcard, #cardmaking, #coffeecards
Debbie Owens uses pastel teals and purples to distress her background with a little splattering of white. She die cuts it using the scalloped frame from the Frames & Flags die set. She then distresses the coffee mugs from the Mugs stencil on a darker purple before die cutting using the large circle die from the Circle Frames die set. She stamps the sentiment from the Love Cafe stamp set on a banner die cut using the banner die from the Frames & Flags die set. She focal attraction is the striped kitten in his paper-pieced mug from the Newton's Mug stamp set. She adds glossy accents to give it a more ceramic look.  A super cute coffee card!

Fluttering by with a happy hello by Diane features Monarchs, Bold Blooms, Frames Squared, and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #springcard, #butterflycard
In orange and yellows, Diane Morales brings in spring with this bright, bold card!  She uses the Frames Squared die set to create her scallop-edged card base.  She uses the Bold Blooms stencil to create an orange-on-orange floral layer.  She uses the Frames & Flags die set to create a lime banner and a white one on which she stamps the sentiment.  The beautiful butterfly from the Monarchs stamp and die set is her central element.  So lovely!

Easter Blessings by Sue T. features Spring Roundabout by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #eastercard, #springcard, #cardmaking
Sue T.'s Easter card showcases the fun Spring Roundabout stamp set. With her white card base, she die cuts a circle from the embossed layer.  Within the circle, you'll see the sweet Easter images from the  Spring Roundabout stamp set. Sue adds Washi tape for the sketch banners. She stamps the sentiment on a white rectangle and pops atop the circular element.  A sweet way to send Easter wishes!
