A Golden Birthday!

Hey scrappy friends!!!  Today I decided to play along with the Neat and Tangled Little Tangles Challenge. Featuring Gold and White.   Gold is very trendy right now and looks great on everything! 

For this card I used Sketchy Cupcakes and embossed it with ZING Gold Embossing Powder from AC. I really like the color and smoothness of the powder.  

I like the clean of the white and the pops of gold!!! It could really work with any color!

Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #5

I hope you all had a great time Hopping along with the Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Holiday Hop.  If you didn't you can still see all the wonderful creations here.  I decided to play along with the Inky Paws Sketch Challenge today and there is still time to play. 

I started off with a Kraft base and then got to stamping. That cute snow couple is colored with Inktense Pencils and a water brush on watercolor paper. Nothing fancy just some shading. I decided to with a more sweet colors than traditional holiday.  I really like the pink with grey combo.  

Just in case you couldn't tell I love my glitter tape! I cut some fish tale banners and used the pink tape around a white piece of card stock to make a frame.  Easy peasy!

Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop!

Welcome to Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop!   I am super excited to be apart of this amazing list of designers to show you some great holiday inspiration.  

You should of come here from Alice Wertz blog, if you didn't you can start from the beginning by going over to the Newton's Nook Designs Blog here

I have really been loving using the metallic foil tape from the hardware store.  You get it in the A/C duct isle.  It is used to tape sections of A/C duct together.  This tape it super fun to die cut and emboss! Perfect for the holidays. So I taped a piece of the foil tape on some card stock trimmed around it. Then ran it through my big shot with an embossing folder. I just love the effect of embossing folders.

I colored little Newton with some Stamp Markers from American Crafts.  Now this isn't what these markers are made for, but I love the texture they give when coloring an animal.

For some extra detail I cut some plastic bag that was lying around from doing some scrappy shopping. and glued it behind the box to flap over to mimic Tissue Paper.  You never know what you may recycle in your craft room!

Next on the hop is Kim Singdahlsen !  I can't wait to see what she created for the Inky Paws Hop.

I hope you enjoyed the hop so far and got some inspiration to get your Paws Inky!
