GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! Nothing on my calendar today so today is a day to do whatever I want whenever I want to do it. So this will be a post and run as I decide on today’s adventure. We’ve been working on cleaning up the backyard and getting it ready for summertime fun, so I suspect that we’ll be exploring local nurseries today to start picking out flowers. Before I run off, I just wanted to add my entry for Newton’s Nook Inky Paws Challenge #95 which is a challenge to create a project using the sketch shown here. I recently purchased two kitchen/cooking themed stamp sets from Newton’s Nook — Newton’s Kitchen and Made From Scratch — so I decided to feature them in my project.
I started my project by cutting a piece of 80# cardstock with the Scalloped Rectangle Stackable die from Lawn Fawn as the base for my background. Next, I used Versafine ink to stamp and heat embossed the images from the Made From Scratch stamp to create a background pattern. Following the sketch, I adhered a scrap of gingham paper across the background. I cut a second piece of 80# cardstock with a fishtail banner die from MFT Stamps and stamped and heat embossed the sentiment. The cat image was stamped on a piece of Spectrum Noir cardstock with GKD Amalgam Ink and colored with Copic markers. Once the layers were assembled, I added a few enamel dots to finish off my card.
Hope you got some inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you again soon!
