Pastel Easter card – IPC#67

Inky Paws Challenge

Hello Everyone,

It is Monday again and time for the new inspiration for the Inky Paws Challenge #67. I just love any sketch with a tag involved.

After last week’s bright colours I made a pastel Easter card for today.


I started with stamping and colouring the cute little bunny and butterfly from Bitty Bunnies using Copic markers. I added some dots with my darker colours as well as some accents with a white gel pen. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.


To make a scene for them I used the Cloudy sky stencil and sponged pastel colours on Bristol Smooth cardstock. I used a tiny sponge dauber, in this way I could use many colours of Distress Inks.


The tag is from the Fancy edges tag die set, the grass I created with one of the stitched chevron accent dies in the set. The sentiment is from Newton’s Easter basket. I tied a bow from twine on the top and popped up the critters with foam tape.


I die cut the stencilled background with a stitched rectangle die and I cut also 2 stitched banners from coordinating cardstocks to go behind the tag, which is popped up with 3D foam tape.


A tiny bit of Tonic Aqua shimmer and glossy accents finished it off. I hope you like my card and got in spring mood. Come and play along with us at the Inky Paws Challenge #67, it is open until Friday (16/03/2018). A random winner will get a 20USD gift certificate to the awesome Newton’s Nook Designs online store.

I will upload this card to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Whatever the weather and to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Girl Power.


Have a wonderful week and see you soon with more spring projects.

Hello Again,

It is my second post today, as always I am in the last minute to post my card for the MFT sketch challenge #374.

I love the simplicity of the sketch, this is my take on it:


I selected a pretty flower patterned paper first to know how to colour the cute images from the MFT Somebunny stamp set. It is an older one but I just got it recently. These bunnies are so cute! I used Copics to colour them and die cut them with the coordinating dies.


Then I set the scene: I cut a stitched rounded rectangle frame and used a stitched cloud background die on the inner panel. Then I sponged some Tattered Rose distress oxide ink on it to match the warm feel of the card. I stamped part of the sentiment on it using pink ink.


I used green patterned paper for the grass and cut another 2 layers of the frame to make it more dimensional. After assembling the scene I stamped the rest of the sentiment in black under it.


As a finishing touch I used a black glaze pen on the eyes, some white dots on the cheeks with a gel pen and I added stickles on the middle of the little flowers.


I will upload this project to the MFT Sketch Challenge #374 and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes.

Thanks for spending time with me and hope to see you in my crafty corner again soon.



Purrfect birthday – IPC#67

Inky Paws Challenge

Hello Everyone,

It is March already, hopefully spring is coming soon. Until it arrives, I have a very cheerful card for you as inspiration for the new Inky Paws Challenge #67. The sketch is this:

And my card based on the sketch:


I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and blended some distress inks on it in rainbow order. Then I used the Tumbling hearts stencil and went over it with the same inks. Before removing the stencil I added Shimmer Spritz for a delicate shimmer. I die cut this panel with a stitched rectangle die.


Then I stamped the kitty on a balloon from Newton’s Birthday Bash stamp set, coloured with Copics making the balloon to match the rainbow background. I die cut it with the coordinating die.


I cut a tag (Sugar Pea Designs) from white cardstock, stamped the sentiment on it in black and adhered the die cut kitty at an angle.


I also die cut some banners using the Frames and flags die set, and a pretty bow (Studio Katia die). After assembling the card I used a clear shimmer pen on the balloon and an enamel dot in the middle of the bow.


I hope you like my card and will participate in the current Inky Paws Challenge. You have 2 weeks to upload your project to the link to be eligible to win the 20USD gift certificate to the NND online store.
