Inky Paws Challenge 131 - Color Challenge


Hello Inky Paws Fans!

We have a NEW challenge coming your way.

Check out what I created using the challenge colors.

This CAS (clean and simple) card was so easy to make.

I started with a base of black cardstock.

On top of that I placed the Large Scalloped Rectangle from

The Frames and Flags Die Set using white cardstock.

Next, I die cut out all my pieces for the card.

The circles come from the

Squared Dies and the CircleFrames Die.

The heart is from the

Darling Hearts Die.

“Trick or Treat is part of the

Halloween Trio Die

The “I” is from the

Essential Alphabet Die Set

And finally, the ghost is from the

Boo Hoo Stamp Set.

Ok! So, this is a CAS card with a WHOLE LOT of components.

Maybe NOT so simple.

Now it is time for assembly.

 I did prop up some of the die cuts with foam tape, no flat cards for me.

I placed all the die cuts on the card however I thought looked good.

I stamped out the ghost and add him to the front of the card


sat back to admire the cuteness.

Hope this inspires you to

use your favorite Newton’s Nook Stamps

and the challenge colors and get crafty.

Anything Goes - Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challange


This week it is ANTYTHING GOES 

Featuring products by Gina K Designs!

You do not have to use them to join in, but

 if you have some in your stash, we would LOVE to see them used.

Here are the products I chose for this challenge.

This super cute assortment I turned into this card.

It all starts with the background for the card.

I chose black cardstock for the card because I wanted the neon to stand out.

But how to make the black pop?

I used an old school cardmaking trick by taping

down the Gina K Designs Rounded Swirl Stencil to the card base.

      Using an ink sponge I added a generous amount of Versamark Ink on the black cardstock.

After gently pulling away the stencil, I covered the whole top with clear embossing powder.

Once the embossing powder was heat set, I had a super cool swirly base for the rest of my goodies.

Next up how I used the Thermo Web Neon Glitz Glitter Gel.

I stared by swatching all the colors on a piece of heavy cardstock.

This was a lot of fun!

The Glitter Gel was easy to use and fun to play with, I want to turn everything Neon!

I love all things round, so once the Glitter Gel was dry simply die cut a bunch of round shapes.

I have the Simon Says Stamp Nesting Circles, but you can use your favorite circle die.

I simply die cut the word three time and glued the pieces together.

This gave the die cut the dimension that I wanted for the front of the card.

I stared assembling my card by putting on the “HELLO “die first.

I then started placing my Neon dots all around until I liked what I saw.

I did decide to pop a few of those Neon Dots up with foam tape.

And that completes my take on ANTHING GOES

using some fun Gina K Design products.

I almost forgot the good news!
