What's MOO! IPC 92

Welcome to a NEW Inky Paws Challenge.
This one will stretch those crafty muscles.

I been going thru a creative rut right now.
When this happens, I usually thumb thru my stamp sets for inspiration.

What's MOO ! a tag by Diane Morales | Farmyard Friends Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs

I came upon the Farmyard Friends StampSet and this set inspired this project.
I chose to create a tag using some fun orange printed paper from my stash.
 The background element using the Tumbling Heart Stencil.
This is embossed on Kraft card stock.

The forward element features the cow from the
Farmyard Friends Stamp Set and my sentiment.
For a pop of color, and the final element, I added grass using the

 Simple yarn bow finishes this tag.
Now it is your turn!
What will you create using this sketch?

Thanks for stopping by

 Huge Hugs

Feline Good IPC 91

We are at the halfway point of the current Inky Paws Challenge!
Check out these challenge colors.

Lots of fun, right!
Using the challenge colors, I came up with this card as my inspiration.

Feline Good a card by Diane Morales | Newton's Sweetheart Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs

The start of this card is the background.
 I applied Distress Ink in gradient colors.

At the top Hickory Smoke, followed by, Spun Sugar, and then Pickled Raspberry.
I tried to keep my colors kind of equal, 
but with a good blend where the colors meet.
Next, I stamped and colored my imaged from the
Newton and his girlfriend are enjoying a “Catppuccino” together.
    I colored this image using colors that would POP against the background.

Finally, I made a bold choice and stamped my sentiment right on
to my stenciled background in black ink.

Now it is your turn, what will you create using the challenge colors?

BIG Wishes IPC 91

Happy Monday everybody!
Today starts a NEW Inky Paw’s Challenge.
My favorite kind of challenge…

Using the challenge colors, I came up with this gem!

BIG Wishes a card by Diane Morales| Holding Happiness Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs

This card starts with the background.
Using 3 of the challenge colors and the Argyle Stencil Set
I came up with this fun plaid background.

Wanting to create something unique, I chose to go with a shaped card this time.
The Holding Happiness Stamp Set is my featured image.
This stamp set is the perfect fun touch for my card.

Finally, it would not be a card without the use of the 
The Stitched Banner from this die set was perfect 
complement for my sentiment.

Bold Heart IPC 90

Just one more week for the current Inky Paws Challenge.
Here is the current challenge.

I love non-traditional colors for a holiday.
I also love bold colors.
These two loves formed the idea for this card.

 Using the BloomingBotanicals Stamp Set I colored in the flowers
 using just three very bold Sharpie colors.
Once the coloring was done,
I die cut out my heart using the large heart from the DarlingHearts Die Set.

To create the base for my card I used the FloralLace Stencil.
along with my rubber embossing mat for my Cuttlebug.
This created the perfect background texture for my heart and sentiment.

Simple and cute!
Now it is your turn.
You have one week to show your love
or create a Valentine!

Have an amazing February!
