Deck the Halls with Inky Paws!

I am so so excited for today's post! Not only is it Day 3 of the Holiday Inspiration Event, but it is also my feature spotlight day with Newton's Nook Designs! I am off-the-walls happy to help Newton's Nook celebrate all month long with their super adorable stamps!

I enjoyed inking up the stamp set "SEAson's Greetings" so much that I've got 3 cards to share today using only that set!

This crazy octopus is going to take over the entire ocean and cover everybody in holiday cheer! He was a 'joy' to color ;) with my Copic markers and paired perfectly with the Studio Calico "Atlantic" collection.

Next up is a super fast CAS card using the Joy stamp and an anchor stamp. All that needed to be done was some quick coloring and thread some twine through the anchor. The stamps are bold enough on their own!

Finally I have a fun card to make you smile :)  I used a variety of the great images from the "SEAson's Greeting" set.

That whale is making it really difficult for the crabby to capture all the presents! The great expression on the crab's face is priceless. To create the waves, I used pattern paper from Echo Park "Splash", cut along the waves, and dabbed the paper in misted Distress Inks. The images were stamped on white cardstock, colored with Copics, trimmed, and applied to the card.

THANK YOU for joining in the fun today! Stop by the Newton's Nook Blog to be a part of the action, and check out the adorable stamps in the Newton's Nook store! We'll be back on Friday for a big blog hop!

AND Thanks for joining me for Day 3 of our holiday event! Be sure to visit the other talented ladies to see what they have planned today!
