Inky Paws Challenge # 40

There’s a new Inky Paws Challenge on the blog ( and this time it is a sketch challenge. I love sketch challenges! It gets me out of my comfort zone to try and design something that I’ve never done before.

Here is the sketch:



I started out by stamping the images on Canson watercolor card stock with my Versafine Onyx Black Ink and colored them in with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. For this card, I am showcasing a couple of stamps from Newton’s Nook Designs. The mixer, spoon and measuring cup are from the Made From Scratch stamp set and the doodle design is from the Love A La Carte stamp set.

I finished my design by using some Doodlebug patterned paper. Instead of using twine, I decided to use the bow from a Christmas die-set by NND called Pines and Holly Die Set.  Here is my version of the challenge.


What do you guys think? I hope you got inspired today and join us for this challenge. For more information, please visit You have two weeks to join the challenge.  Winner will get a $10 gift code for the Newton’s Nook Designs shop.

The supplies that I have used for today’s card are listed and linked below if you are interested. Have an amazing day.


True Friend Card | MFT SC 280

I finally was able to organize my craft room and thought I’d join the current MFT Stamps Sketch Challenge No. 280.


I am a dog-lover and I have a weakness for chihuahuas.  The new Lucky Dog stamp set from MFT Stamps is probably one of my favorite dog stamp set. The little chihuahua image is so adorable I just had to show it off.


Here is my rendition for this week’s challenge.  What do you think?

MFT Stamps Sketch Challenge 274

It has been a very busy week for me so far but one of the things that always relax me is to go to my craft room and create something beautiful. On today’s blog post, I decided to join MFT Stamps Sketch Challenge for the first time.   Here is the photo of Sketch Challenge No. 274.




And here is my rendition for the challenge.




I have used MFT Stamps Adorable Elephants (one of my favorites), with the LJD All Heart stamp set and my new favorite, the Tag Builder Blueprints #5. I just absolutely love the color combination that I used for this card. The pink and gold color combo is very popular these days but to tune it down a little, I used gray card stock for my banner and for my card base.


I hope you like this card. Happy crafting!
