Books and Cats – IPC 175 Reminder


Hello and welcome back!

Have you joined the Inky Paws Challenge yet? There are still a few more days to create a one layer card for a chance to win $20 to the Newton’s Nook online store!

For my card today, I wanted to create a simple scene using the Newton’s Book Club Stamp Set and the All Booked Up Stamp Set. These are some of my favorite sets (I mean, what’s better than books and cats?) and they work perfectly together!

I started by stamping the reading cat from the Newton’s Book Club Stamp Set in the lower middle section of a 4.25 x 5.5in white card stock panel. Next, I masked that image and stamped the two cats sitting on books from the Book Club Set and the All Booked Up Stamp Set. I created additional masks for both of those images, masked them, and masked a half inch border around the outside of the panel. Then, I ink blending some Salvaged Patina Distress Ink over the open area. 

After the inking, I removed all the masks and colored my scene using Copic markers in the following colors:

White cat: W3, W1, W00, E04, E93

Black cat: 100, W8, W6, W5, W3, E04, E93

Brown cat: E29, E27, E25, E23, E21, E04, E93

Purples: V09, V06, V04, V01

Pinks: RV66, RV55, RV23, RV11

Greens: YG45, YG23, YG11, YG01

Teals: BG45, BG32, BG11, BG10

To finish off my card, I stamped the sentiment “Our story is my favorite” in black ink. 

I hope you join us in the Inky Paws Challenge! Don’t be intimidated by the one layer theme – there are so many ways to approach a one layer card!

Thanks for stopping by!
