Newton's Nook Sketch Challenge

Hi Friends!  I've had a very busy week preparing for two craft shows this weekend, thus why I haven't posted anything this week.  That didn't keep me from coming up with some new designs though!

My friend Jen over at Newton's Nook Designs recently started her own stamp business, featuring her very own kitty Newton!  She designed and released 4 brand new adorable photopolymer stamp sets.  They've featured tons of great card creations since the release.  Now they have their very first Inky Paws Sketch Challenge!  I had purchased two of the super cute stamp sets, and I couldn't wait to try out my new stamps with this challenge.  My mom and I sat down this weekend and both created two cards for the challenge.  I'll be posting the cards my mom created in my next post!

Here's the sketch I started with:

Here's my first card- Kitty Dreams!  The stamps on this card are from the set Newton's Antics.  I've been making knitting/yarn cards all week, and I was dying to use the cute yarn ball stamp on a project.    I first stamped the sleeping kitty and colored him in.  I popped him out with dimensionals to add some interest. I wanted to show what kitty was happily dreaming of, so I stamped the yarn ball all over the scalloped circle, and then added little tiny hearts coming from the sleeping kitty.  I just love how this card turned out!

Please note: Per Stampin' Up's new competitive policy on 7/2/13, I must disclose that I am not receiving any compensation for any purchases made from from Newton's Nook Designs.
