Inky Paws Challenge

 I am still making a few Christmas cards.  I never seem to have enough.  I went to Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge for Inspiration.  I found some stamps I have been wanting to use and came across the Holiday Haul set.

I just love this truck design.  I colored the image with my copic markers and then used the matching die to cut it out.  The sentiment is also from that stamp set.  The designer paper is called Christmas Time from Newtons Nook.

The challenge this week at Inky Paws challenge was a sketch challenge.  Below is the sketch they provided.  
I always love a sketch challenge and seeing what I can come up with.  Thanks to Newton's Nook for always providing us with inspiration and challenging us to come up with a fun design.

Creative Crew Challenge

Just made it on the deadline for our Creative Crew Challenge.  This time of year is always busy and I never get everything done I think I will.  Our hostess this month is Darlene and she challenged us to create a Christmas card that features colors that are not traditionally used at Christmas.

 So this is my versions of a non traditional Christmas card.  I went with the colors peach, purple and teal.  The designer paper is from Ink Drops-Dusk by Craft Consortium.  I used the darker version to cut out a wreath by Sunny  Studios called Snowflake Circle Frame.  I then colored the images from All Together Holiday by Taylored Expressions with my copic markers and arranged them on the wreath.  The ribbon is from Darlene's stash.  The sequins are from Close to My Heart.  The sentiment is from Altenew Happy Holidays stamp set.

I really had fun with the challenge this month.  It is always fun to challenge ourselves and create something out of the box.

Thanks Darlene for a great challenge.

PIP Challenge #2349

 Do you believe Christmas is only 14 days away?  I hope you are all taking time to enjoy the season.  I have a few loose ends to tie up but I am basically ready.  

I am excited about our sponsor this week for Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge #2349.  This week our sponsor is none other than Newton's Nook Designs which is one of my all time favorite stamp companies.  Maybe it is because of the adorable cat on their logo which reminds of the two I have at home.  

For my project today I am using the stamp set "Snowman Greetings".  It was hard for me to decide which stamp set to use.  I have so many and they are all so cute.
I colored the image with my copic markers and then used the matching die to cut it out.  I added a couple hill layers of snow over the snowflake background.  I also added the fence in the background along with the trees and birds.  I love the way this card turned out.  I even used a little bit of stickles on the snow for effect.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my card this week.  Be sure and visit Newton's Nook Designs for all their adorable stamp sets, dies and stencils.
