Newtons’ Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge with Paper Temptress-Halloween





Aloha Guys!

Today I made a card for the Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge and the theme for this challenge was Halloween.  I don’t think I own any of the Newton’s Nook’s designs Halloween stamp set or if I have them, I forgot where I put them, lol.  It’s crazy how things get lost in my craft room, lol.

Anyways, I needed to create a Halloween theme card so I decided to use this turtle from the In Slow Motion Stamp set and created my own Halloween theme.  I don’t have a video for this card because I was really sick the whole last week.  This just came about as I was sitting in bed, just coloring random stamps.  Initially I wanted to create a Birthday card with this, since the turtle actually has a present tied to his shell.  I came up with 2 cards, almost the same design.  One is a birthday card and the other being this Halloween card.  I’ll share the other card in another time.

I went ahead and stamped out 3 turtles onto Neenah Solar White card stock from Paper Temptress.  One on top of the other, masking the present on his shell, except for the top turtle.  He has a present on his back but I attached a velvet bat on the present instead.  I wanted this to be a Halloween card so I went ahead and stamped out one of the party hats from the same stamp set.  I stamped it out very lightly so that I can draw in the bottom of the hat, making it into a witches hat.  I colored it black and it fit perfectly on the turtle.  I then stamped out couple of the candy bags from the Lawn Fawn’s stamp sets, which also fit in the turtles mouth perfectly.  I cut the mouth of the turtle with my exacto knife and also cut a slit on the top of the bags, so that it can fit inside the turtles mouth.  Super cute, right?  I stamped out the sentiment from the same In Slow Motion set that says Shell-abrate!  Super cleaver sentiment!  I also stamped out underneath of the Shell-abrate using a Stampin Up’s stamp.  I colored all the turtles using my Shinhan Touch Twin alcohol markers, which I use pretty regularly and it blends beautifully on this Neenah card stock.  I love these markers ❤  I also found some small candies, from another Lawn Fawn’s stamp set and attached it to the other 2 turtles.

I used Dusty concord and Black soot distress inks to ink up this panel and I used this K&C Halloween pattern paper, along with the Paper Temptress Mango card stock as well as Neenah Solar White.  I LOVE the Paper Temptress card stocks, so I think that will be the only card stock I’ll be using from now on 🙂  I then attached the whole panel to an A2 size card front and added some sequins to match the orange card stock.  I attached some velvet bat’s to give more interest to this card.  I also used my Signo white gel pen as well as glossy accents on the turtle and the shells.  I hope you like this card and if you do, please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas.  Click the link below to participate in the Inky Paws Challenge, for a chance to win a prize!

Inky Paws Challenge and SSS Wednesday Challenge in One



Aloha Guys!

Today I made a card for Both The SSS Wednesday Challenge Have a Heart and the Inky Paws Challenge, Use a Heart in One.  I’m using the Flirty Flamingo set which I colored using my Copic Markers.  I created the Background of the Flamingoes using the Stampin Up’s New stamp with my watercolored crayons to give a very subtle impression.  I then stamped a small heart from one of the Lawn Fawn’s heart using the Simon Says Stamp School house red ink pad to create a heart tree.  On the front panel of the card, I used a SSS Heart Background stamp using my crayons again to give a subtle look.  I created this shaker card using fun foam’s instead of using the dimentionals.  I had bunch of them left over from my Christmas Shaker ornament so I decided to use them up.  I also embossed a bright pink card stock using a cuttle bug embossing folder.  I attached everything together and finished off this card.  I will have a video on my youtube channel later on this week on how I made this card.  Thank you so much for visiting and Please subscribe for more inspirations and ideas.  Much Mahalo!

Inky Paws Challenge #16 Christmas Theme



Aloha guys!
Today I’m sharing a card j made for the Newton’s Nook Inky Paws Challenge #16 Christmas Themed Card.  I used the Christmas Delivery stamp set for this card.  I stamped out the image and cut it using the MFT’s Stitched circle die.  I cut 4 pieces of card stock measuring 3 3/4″x5″ and cut the circle in the middle to make my shaker ornament and attached them all together to create a dimensional circle.   I then cut another one measuring the same with Design Paper.  This is form the American Crafts Christmas collection paper pad and cut a circle matching the others.  I colored the image using my Copic Markers.  I attached the stamp piece lining it up on the inner circle and attached it to a red card stock measuring 4″x5 1/4″.   I attached the dimensional piece and poured in some seed beads and put the design paper on top  to create my shaker.  I used a gold ribbon I cut using my Cricut and attached it to the top of he circle to make it look like an ornament.  I hope you like this card, and for full tutorial on how i made this card, please visit my youtube channel.  Also, please subscribe for more inspirations and ideas.  Thanks and Much Mahalo:)
