Happy Fall IPC 84

Welcome to a NEW Inky Paws Challenge.

For this challenge all you got to do is use a burlap or twine.
Burlap is not something I use in an everyday crafting.
I decided to challenge myself.
Using the Harvest Tails Stamp Set and some burlap I came up with this card idea

I had a lot of fun creating this card and it starts with a background.
Using the pumpkin and gourd from the Harvest Tales Stamp Set
I Versamark stamped the images onto the yellow cardstock.
I heat set the images with clear embossing powder to create 
my own pattern cardstock for the background.

I die cut out the base shape of my card using a round die that I had in my stash.
Next, I turned my attention to the burlap.
Since burlap is kind of flexible, I chose to glue mine to some cardstock 
and then attached it to the front of the card.
With the base of my card done, I stamp out my images and colored them in with Distress Ink.
I made sure to keep my colors very fall oriented.
With all my colored images dry, I die cut them out and attach those to the front of the card.
When it came to the sentiment I wanted to do something different.
I thought about it for a while and came up with a green apple 
colored banner with embossed white lettering for the sentiment.
The banner comes from the Frames and Flags Die Set.

I love the colors that I used in this card!
Very Fall-tastic!
Now it is your turn!
Dive into your crafty stash, find some burlap or twine and get those PAWS INKY!

Thanks for stopping by.

Have a great week.

Cand Corn and A Card IPC 83

 We are at the halfway point of the current Inky Paws Challenge.

We have an awesome sketch for you to work with!

October is such a fun month!
It's my birthday month and of course it's Halloween time!
Whey not create a tribute to my favorite candy…

This sketch was perfect for my candy corn card.
To make it even more interesting I would use only candy corn colors!
The base card I decided was going to be yellow.
Next, using the Candy Corn Stamp Set, I stamped
my candy corns in a random pattern on white cardstock.
I colored those in using traditional candy corn colors
and attached that to the base of my card.

Using the Sky Borders Die Set, I die cut the “across”
element of the sketch out of orange cardstock.
The round element of the sketch became the place for my sentiment.
To finish this card, I stamped, colored and die cut out the
 large candy corn for the accent for the card.
Now it is your turn! Use the sketch above and your
favorite Newton Nook Stamps and show us how you get your PAWS INKY.

Boo a card for you! IPC 83

Welcome to a NEW Inky Paws Challenge.
What a fun sketch we have for you.

Since it is still October, I decided to keep the Halloween fun happening!
Using the Halloween Trio Stamp Set, and the sketch above I created this card.

The background of this card is quite simple.
Tumbled Glass Distress Ink is smashed into white cardstock and dried with a heat gun.

Next, I created the background grass using the Land Boarders Die Set.
The grass is die cut out, covered with a generous amount of Mowed Lawn Distress Ink.
The ink is quickly dried with a heat gun, and then water is dropped on it to create texture.
Next, The Halloween Trio Stamp Set is stamped out and colored in.
I die cut out my images and attached them on top of the grass with some foam tape.

Using the bats that come with the coordinating dies for the Halloween Trio Stamp Set,
I die cut out some bats out of black cardstock and attached to the top of the card.
Finally, I stamped “Happy Halloween” on the card.

I hope this inspires you to create your own project and 
share it with us using the challenge picture above.

Thanks for dropping by.
Have a wonderful week.

Newton's Halloween Tag IPC 82

Welcome to the second half of the current Inky Paws Challenge!

Using the challenge colors above I came up with this fun tag!

Newton's Halloween Tag  by Diane Morales| Newton's Perfect Pumpkin Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs

This tag features the Newton's Perfect Pumpkin Stamp Set.
A must have for your Halloween Stamp Set collection!
I started this tag by using the spider webs in the stamp set at and stamping them onto the surface of the tag using black Versamark ink.

I applied clear embossing powder all over the top 
of the spider webs and heat set.
Next, I stamped my Newton and colored
 him in using some of the challenge colors.
I fussy cut out Newton and place him on the tag using foam tape to pop him up.
Finally, I stamped my sentiment on cute yellow polka dotted paper.
I trim the sentiment down and attached it to
 the front of my tag using foam tape.
To add some flair, I created a tassel and trim and attach that to the tag.

 I LOVE the way this tag it came out!
Super cute and super easy!
Now, it is your turn using the challenge colors and your favorite
Newton's Nook Stamp show us how you get your Paw’s Inky.

Hope everybody has a great week.
