Inky Paws Challenge #216 ~ Sketch Challenge Reminder

 Hello there crafty friend!
 There's still time to play along with the Inky Paws Challenge #216 - Sketch Challenge! You have until this coming Friday, February 16th to get your entries in for this fun challenge and a chance to win a $20 store credit to Newton's Nook Designs!

I am seriously loving this sketch! Have you given it a try?

I had a fun idea to make two cute Valentine's Day cards using the sketch and they turned out cuter than I thought they would. This sketch is so easy to duplicate once you have the measurements figured out! I love it! 

I die cut the background papers using the largest scalloped die from the Frames & Flags Die Set. I used scraps of striped pattern papers cut down to 1-3/4" wide for my next layer. I also die cut these with the largest scalloped die so it fits just right on the background layer.

I used the adorable Love & Meows 6x6 Paper Pad for my first card. I paired up the papers with the super cute Newton's Heart Stamp Set. The top layer with the fishtail bottom measures 3 x 4". I found the center of the paper and measure up about 1/2" and drew lines from the corner to the center point and then fussy cut my fishtails. I sure hope that makes sense!

I stamped the adorable kitty, pup and sentiments using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored them up with my Copic markers and used the coordinating Newton's Heart Die Set to die cut the kitty and the Puppy Heart Die Set to die cut the puppy. 

Here's a quick list of the Copic Markers I used for the kitty: R00, R20, N0, N1, N3, YR21, YR15, Colorless Blender.

For my second card I used the cute Love & Woofs 6x6 Paper Pad and the sweet Puppy Heart Stamp Set. Love the fun sentiments in these stamp sets!

Here's a quick list of the Copic Markers I used for the puppy: N1, N3, N5, E51, E21, E23, E25.

I also stamped the kitty and pup on scraps of pattern paper and fussy cut the hearts. I used a Memento Tuxedo Black marker to color the edges of my fussy cutting to neaten them up and adhered them to the hearts on the kitty and pup.

I die cut a scalloped stitched circle from vellum card stock using a circle die from the Circle Frames Die Set. I love to add a layer of vellum when I don't want to cover up my background completely, but I want a little something between my focal image and the background. I adhered the kitty and pup to the vellum and then adhered the vellum circles by adding glue just behind the kitty and pup. That way none of the glue shows through the vellum and gives the card a bit of dimension since the vellum doesn't lay down completely flat.

Now it's your turn to get your paws inky with your Newton's Nook Designs products and create a project using the sketch. Be sure to link up to the Inky Paws Challenge! Can't wait to see your projects!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
See ya next time.

Inky Hugs,
