Newton’s Nook Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop + Giveaways

Hey friends! As promised, today we are having the Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop! And I’ve created quite a celebratory scene in today’s project featuring the cute new set, Newton Celebrates. Let’s party!

There’s no doubt that these animals know how to throw a celebration! I stamped all the cute critters in the stamp set in a dark brown hybrid ink and colored them up with copic markers. I always love adding some patterns to their coats. I also used a white gel pen for some accents. Then, I fussy cut the images out, however there are coordinating dies available for this stamp set that will likely do a better job than my fussy cutting.

I decided to color all the drinks light pink cause, well, it’s all about rosé all day! Haha! I coordinated it with an ink blended background using Worn Lipstick and Antique Linen distress oxide inks and gave it some splatter for a fun effect. Rather than pick one sentiment, I used 3! It was like each of the cats yelling out their own cheer. The sentiments were heat embossed in white.

The background was die cut out with a stitched A2 frame, and the party animals were added to the card with foam. All done!
