an Inky Paws FLASH challenge!

good morning! i can only assume is COLD by you, if you live in the states. it seems like everywhere is getting hit with a cold front, and for once, SC is part of the COLD! it's 18 here!!!! what now?! lol!! but i'm not complaining, i LOVE cuddling under blankets! ha!

anyway, Newton's Nook is having a fun little FLASH challenge on their blog! they even have a FREE digi available! you don't have to use NND stamps, but of course we LOVE to see them in action! :D the challenge is only 3 days long, so hop to it, and you could be the random winner! :D

it's a PERFECT time to make some thank you cards - so i couldn't wait to play along! and i used a TON of sets to create my card! 

i saw a design similar to this on one of the cut apart pieces from the new Amy Tangerine Stitched collection in a video, and i just NEW that i had to try to recreate it! :) (if you're wondering about my inspiration, it's in the last photo on this link here!)

first i lightly drew a heart onto some white cardstock. then i heat embossed in white (what felt like!) a MILLION little flowers and leaves! ha ha! once the shape was filled out, i added some watercoloring with my distress markers! 

the stamp sets i used are (deep breath):
Versatile Vases
Newton's Daydream
Easter Scramble
Basket of Wishes
Simply Sentimental
Winged Wishes

a little washi was adhered to the top of the card, and it was done. i LOOOOOOVE how it turned out! and i LOVE finding inspiration everywhere! :)
so what are you waiting for? please play along for your chance to win!


  1. Wow! Your card is absolutely gorgeous! And I just LOVE how you incorporated so many different sets!


thank you SO much for taking the time to comment! just like that, you made my day! :D
