Inky Paws Challenge #149 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 colors:   mint, plum, green, and lilac.

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

Let your dreams bloom by Amy features Floral Fringe and Frames Squared by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking
Amy Tollner uses the challenge colors to create a bright, bold shaker card!  She uses the Frames Squared die set to create her card base and scallop-edged shaker frame showcasing the Floral Fringe stamp set. Don't you love her beautiful coloring of the flowers in the challenge colors!  Brilliantly done!

Happy Birthday to you by Claire features Speech Bubbles, Newton's Birthday Trio, and Frames Squared by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #catcards, #birthdaycards
Claire Lamb die cuts multiple speech bubbles using the Speech Bubble die set to create textured background. She then uses the challenge colors to distress a rainbow backdrop die cut using the stitched die from the Frames Squared die set. She spot lights the trio of kittens from the Newton's Birthday Trio stamp and cut using the coordinating die set. The glossy accents on the small speech bubbles adds a nice finishing touch!  SpeCATular!

Wish you were here by Debbie features Circle Frames, Waves, Frames Squared, Speech Bubbles, Scuba Newton, and Tides of Love by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #cardmaking, #newtonsnook, #catcards
 Debbie Owens takes us under the sea using the challenge colors. Using the square scallop-edged die from the Frames Squared die set, she die cuts a lavender pattern paper layer.  She adds a circular scallop-edged using a die from the Circle Frames die set. On this circle she has added some subtle waves using texture paste and the Waves stencil. In those waves, she adds Newton from the Scuba Newton stamp set.  She adds sea critters, coral, and seaweed using elements from both the Tides of Love stamp set and the Scuba Newton stamp set. Her last touch is the speech bubble die cut using the Speech Bubbles die set. Delightful!

Be happy together by Diane features Toucan Party, Easter Lily, and Snow Globe Shaker by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #tropicalcards
Diane Morales cuts strips of paper in the challenge colors for her background on which she stamps and embosses the lily image from the 
Easter Lily stamp set repeatedly. She then a white frame popped with dimension tape using the Snow Globe Shaker set die.  She then stamps and colors the lovely birds from the Toucan Party stamp and cut using the coordinating die set.  A colorful way to celebrate an anniversary of a marriage! 

Humming along by Sue features Hummingbird, Circle Frames, and Speech Bubble by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking
Sue T.'s  uses the challenge colors to create a pretty garden complete with a hummingbird!  A top an embossed card base, Sue adds a stitched circle layer die cut using the Circle Frames die set. On this circle she has stamped and shaded the flowers from the Hummingbird stamp in lavender and mint.  She then stamps and colors the hummingbird from the aforementioned set in plum and green. She uses the coordinating die set to cut out the bird and then affixing with dimension tape.  She stamps the sentiment on a speech bubble die cut from the Speech Bubbles die set. Beautiful!
