Newton’s Nook – Sending Smiles

Hello again! I’m here today with my final entry into the current Inky Paws Challenge. In case you missed it, it’s a color challenge this time.

For today’s card, I was so excited to use new stamps and stencils I recently received for my birthday! This is the sending hugs stamps and dies paired with the plaid stencil set.

This is the only set I have with Winston in it so I immediately grabbed him and then reached for the coffee cup in the set for him to hold. I colored and cut then out and set to stencil my background. I chose green and teal, knowing I would use pink for my sentiment strip to complete the color challenge.

For assembly, I glued my stenciled panel to a card base and popped up my heat embossed sentiment strip, along with Winston holding his coffee.

Finishing touches on this card were to add black glaze pen to his eyes, glossy accents to his nose and the coffee lid, and white gel pen in various places on the images. Then I glued pink and white clay hearts around and my card is complete.

I just love how the dies for the stamp set cut the animals hands so they can hold items. It is the coolest idea and so fun to use it when building your card.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
