Inky Paws Challenge #201 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's a refresher.

Use your NND products with the above sketch. 

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

As we bring you this week's inspiration, we want take to moment say good-bye to one of our amazing Inky Paws design team members, Diane Morales

Diane has been a long time part of the Inky Paws Challenge, first as a challenge participant and then a team member! Over the years her amazing shaped cards and creative interpretations of the challenges have provided so much inspiration! For her final IPC card, Diane doesn't disappoint. Below is here final IPC card, and it's just the cutest!

You are claw-some by Diane features Kitten Beach, Summertime, and Circle Frames by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #summercards, #catcards, #cardmaking, #cardchallenge
Diane uses the ever cute kitten from the Kitten Beach stamp and die set playing in his bucket of sand.  Joining him is a little red crab!  Diane creates a subtle background using the shell images from the same stamp set.  Her stitched circle was created using a die from the Circle Frames die set.  Those bright, summery papers are from the Summertime paper pad. Diane completes her card with matching enameled dots.  Another amazing card, Diane!

A big thank you to Diane for all her amazing projects over the years!

Spec-taco-lar birthday wishes by Crystal features Newton Loves Tacos, Frames & Flags, Oval Frames, and A Cat's Life by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #catcards, #cardchallenge, #cardmaking, #tacocards
Crystal O. Minkler selects a mixture of papers from the A Cat's Life paper pad to create colorful layers for her card.  Crystal uses the Frames & Flags die set to create the scallop edges.  Sitting on a scalloped vellum oval (Oval Frames die set) is her sweet gray kitten from the Newton Loves Tacos stamp and coordinating die set.  This little guy is definitely enjoying his special day with a tasty taco!  Great job, Crystal!

Always look up by Debbie features Birdhouse Greetings, Sky Scene Builder, Frames & Flags, Newton's Flower Garden, and Trailing Leaves by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #catcards, #springcards, #cardmaking, #cardchallenge
Debbie Owens combines two stamp sets to create this playful and fun card!  That sweet kitten from the Newton's Flower Garden stamp set is stalking those red birds from the Birdhouse Greetings stamp set. She embosses the center oval (Oval Frames die set) and adds a sentiment cloud (Sky Scene Builder die set).  For the sketch stripes, Deb uses the Trailing Leaves stencil. Her bright blue background was die cut using the Frames & Flags die set to create the scallop edges.  A fabulous combination of products for such a fun card!

Happy purr-thday by Amy features Newton's Birthday Balloons, Oval Frames, Confetti, Birthday Party, and A7 Frames & Banners by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #catcards, #birthdaycards, #cardmaking, #cardmaking
Amy Tollner designs a bright blue & pink birthday card purr-fect for anyone!  Her scallop-edged background was created using the A7 Frames & Banners die set. She adds blue balloon paper from the Birthday Party paper pad. For her oval (Oval Frames die set), Amy adds lots of confetti using the Confetti stencil.  That precious kitty holding his helium-filled balloons is from the Newton's Birthday Balloons stamp and coordinating die set.  What a way to celebrate a birthday!

I'm so fawned of you by Claire features Deer Friend, Oval Frames, Land Borders, and Forest Scene Builder by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #deercards, #friendcards, #cardmaking, #cardchallenge
Claire Lamb takes a creative take on the sketch with the sun (Oval Frames die set) being her oval element.  She adds some trees (Forest Scene Builder die set) and grassy knolls (Land Borders die set) that makes a perfect setting for her trio of fawns from the Deer Friend stamp and die set. This set is retiring, so be sure to get your set before they are all gone!  Don't you love how the grass is sun kissed?  Great job, Claire!

I hope these projects have inspired you to play along!  Remember, you have until this Friday,  July 7 2023 to enter. There's a prize involved too, so don't delay - see more inspiration on our Inky Paws Challenge here!
