It’s time for some Inky Paws Challenge Inspiration! I’ve got three cards to share today, so let’s get too it! The current Inky Paws Challenge is a sketch challenge, so of course I played with it!
For my first card, I went with a CAS style, something that I usually don’t do. I’m all about the layers, foam tape and sequins!
I decided to use my first Newton’s Nook Design stamp (now retired), that I stamped the rose and leaves, colored in with copics and fussy cut. Then I stamped and embossed the Heartfelt Roses image, and die cut it with the largest scallop heart from the Heart Frames Die Set. Lastly I die cut a banner from the Banner Trio Die Set once from white cardstock, and secondly from pattern paper.
Finally I assembled the card with the heart die cut off set and using foam tape on the rose to add a little dimension and I had to add a few sequins! Is this a CAS card? Let me know in the comments!
For my second card, I rotated the sketch to make a landscape card!
I started by ink blending the Petite Flowers Stencil onto an A2 piece of paper. I stamp and colored the image from the Newton’s Mug, colored Newton using copics and die cut it using the coordinating die. Then I paper pieced the mug from some scrap pattern paper. Lastly I diecut a pair of banners from the Banner Trio Die Set, embossing a sentiment from Birthday Roundabout on to one of them. I ended by ink blending the same colors as the stencil on to the banners.
To finish of the card, I added the mug image with foam tape on top of the layered banner, and of course added some sequins!
And … here’s my third card! I personally didn’t love it, but I wanted to post to show that not all cards are “perfect”!
But you can’t get to perfect without practice! So go and create! Please make sure to stop by the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog for more inspiration and don’t forget to tag #NewtonsNook or #NewtonsNookDesign on Instagram to share what you created!
