Friends in any Weather – IPC 145


Good morning, everyone! You know what time it is – time for a new Inky Paws Challenge!

I am sooooo excited for this challenge because it’s all about friendship!

Newton’s Nook has so many fun friendship themed stamp sets, but I had to use Newton’s Rainy Day Trio because it is quite possibly the cutest stamp EVER!

To start my card, I stamped my image on a piece of Hammermill 110lb white cardstock, using a Copic friendly black ink (I used Gina K Amalgam). To color my kitties I used the following colors:

Red Jacket and Umbrella: R39, RV29, R08, R05, R14, and R02

Yellow Jackets: YR27, YR24, Y38, Y35, Y08, Y13, and Y11

Gray Cat: W8, W6, W3, W2, and W1

Siamese Cat: E59, E29, E27, E23, E21, E30, and E000

Black Cat: 100, W8, W6, W3, and W2

Next, I die cut the pieces for the Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel – the wheel and front panel – as well as two strips of grass using the Land Borders Die Set, all out of the same Hammermill white cardstock. To color my pieces, I used a few Gina K inks and my favorite blending brushes. For the blue sky, I used Ocean Mist and Turquoise Sea, for the grass I used Jelly Bean Green and Key Lime, and for the wheel I used Turquoise Sea and Wild Dandelion.

I wanted my Reveal Wheel to go from a rainy sky to a bright, sunny sky. In order to do this, I blended my Wild Dandelion ink on one half of the wheel, and the Turquoise Sea on the other half, letting the colors blend slightly in the middle. On the blue half, I stamped some small dots in Versamark ink and heat embossed using a clear glitter embossing powder. For the yellow half, I blended Versamark ink over the rays of the Sunscape Stencil and heat embossed with the same clear glitter powder.

To assemble my card, I die cut a large circle out of the middle of my blue panel so my wheel would show through. Next, I glued one of my grass panels onto the bottom of the blue panel using a liquid glue. Then I glued my cute kitties on the panel, but I made sure to only put glue on the bottom so my wheel could still turn. I glued on my second grass panel in front of the kitties and stamped my sentiment in the upper right corner of my blue panel. I assembled the wheel portion, stamped a little arrow to show the recipient to turn the wheel, and my card was done!

I hope you join us in the Inky Paws Challenge for a chance to win a $20 gift voucher to the Newton’s Nook Online Store! Get your paws inky and join the fun!
