Never Too Old to Play IPC53


Just a reminder that YOU still have time to play along with our current  
Inky Paws Challenge.

In case your were not aware, we have a Color Challenge.

 Here is MY insperation from the challenge colors.

Never Too Old To Play Card by Diane Morales| Newton Unwinds Stamp Set by Newton Nook Designs

For this card I went with a favorite of mine, a shaped card.
I chose the"Newton Unwinds" Stamp Set and the 
NEW Pawprint Purrfect stencil, for the front of my card.
 I Love the playful nature of the "Newton Unwinds"
and I wanted my card to reflect this.
  Using just a few of the paw prints on the stencil,  
I inked the space around the sentiment and the kitty
 with some of the challenge colors.

You still have time to play along.
The link closes on Friday August 25th.
You could be the winner of a $20 dollar credit to Newtons Nook Designs.
Thanks for droping by.

Newton's Space Odyssey IPC53

It's all about the color for the NEW
Inky Paw's Challenge  # 53

Not going to lie, this card has A LOT going on. But... this was the first design 
I though of when I saw the "Cosmic Newton " Stamp Set 
and the colors for this current challenge.

Newton's Space Odyssey by Diane Morales| Cosmic Newton Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs

Can I just tell you how excited I was when I saw this set!
 Newton has been everywhere, so why not space!
I used the three colors in the challenge and blended them out 
using a stencil to create the background for our Astro Cat .
 Next, I colored Newton ( in Star Trek colors of course) being carful
NOT to use the colors in the backround.
 I did not want my image of Newton to be washed out.
 I added on Newton and that awesome sentiment with some foam tape.
 Finally, just a little shine from a Sakura Stardust Pen
and I was done!
This card came together so easy, it was scary.
I hope this provides some inspiration for you. 
You do not have to go as crazy as I did.
Just let the colors in the challenge be your guide.
The link for this challenge closes on  Friday August 25th

If you are a beginning card maker, some of techniques out there could be a little much.

Using the sketch challenge above, and my "Party Pops stamp set."
 I came up with this card.
Have a Sweet Day a card by Diane Morales| Newton"s Nook Designs| Party Pops Stamp Set

In the begining of my craft  journey, like most, I started out in Scrapbooking.
 And... like most people I have a huge stash (I do mean HUGE) of printed paper.
So why not use that stash to good use.
This is a three panel card with the center die cut out.
 I want to show off these too cute popsicles from the "Party Pops" Stamp Set.
I took my time and just "procraftinated " with paper and color.
I love the end result and I hope that it give you insperation to join us at the Challenge.
