Inky Paws Challenge #171 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.

Use the challenge sketch.

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

Thanks so much by Debbie features Newton's Blooms, Framework, Frames & Flags, and Circle Frames by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #springcards, #catcards, #cardmaking
Debbie Owens' bright colors look wonderful against the black card base.  She pulls papers from the Springtime paper pad and cuts them using dies from the Frames & Flags and Frameworks die set. She places the sweet kitty image from Newton's Blooms stamp atop a scalloped circle using the Circle Frames die set. Don't you love how she colors the flowers in the pot to match the paper!  So fun!

Springtime wishes by Diane features Springtime, Love & Meows, Oval Frames and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #springcards
Diane Morales turns the sketch horizontally to make this bright, spring card. She pulls papers from both the 
Springtime and Love & Meows paper pads. She selects dies from the Oval Frames and Frames & Flags die sets to create the different layers.  Her yellow tulips from the Tulips stamp and die set coordinate wonderfully with the tulip paper!  Lovely!

Sue T.'s elegant card begins with a polka dotted embossed layer die cut using the scallop-edged 
Frames & Flags die set. She adds pretty pink papers that compliment the roses from the Heartfelt Roses stamp set die cut using the Heart Frames die set. Pretty in pink, indeed!

Welcome Spring by Amy features Frames & Flags, Springtime, Circle Frames, and Spring Roundabout by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #springcards, #eastercard, #cardmaking
Amy Tollner creates a darling spring card on a pretty lavender card base. She layers on floral paper from the 
Springtime paper pad die cut using the scallop-edged frame from the Frames & Flags die set. She stamps and colors the Easter images from the Spring Roundabout stamp set die cut using the Circle Frames die set. A card filled with spring goodness!

Sending piles of spring time smiles by Claire features Newton's Blooms Stamps, Circle Frames, Love & Meows, Land Borders, and  Spring Pile Up by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #catcards, #cardmaking, #springcards
Claire Lamb also uses the 
Newton's Blooms stamp and die set for her amazing sunny card!  She uses papers from the Love & Meows paper pad for her card base. Then layers some rays of sunshine using the Sunscape stencil. She stamps her sentiment from the Spring Pile Up stamps set on a stitched circle die cut using the Circle Frames die set. She places her pot of flowers and kittens (Newton's Blooms stamp and die set) in green grass using the Land Borders die set. Just a-meow-zing!
