Inky Paws Challenge #06 Winners!

Inky Paws #06 Challenge - WINNERS! 

We had so much fun checking out all the entries for our sixth Inky Paws Challenge at here at the Newton's Nook Designs blog! This time we switched things up and did a COLOR challenge - and all our participants really did a great job with it! As always- it's hard to pick a winner! Thanks to everyone who played along! It's always so much fun to see what everyone does with our stamps! We love seeing all the projects.

Top picks!

Since we had over 15 participants we got to pick TWO winners! Read the captions below the photos to see who made the cards! 

Cheese card by Christiana - Winner of InkyPaws Challenge #6
This card by Christiana is our first winner this month! Christiana made this adorable card using our Just Say Cheese set and even hand-drew a sombrero for the mouse! ADORABLE! If you head over to her blog, Christy Gets Crafty, you can watch a video showing how she created her project too. 

Fishing Bear scene by Jess - Winner of InkyPaws Challenge #6
Our second winner is Jess with this fun card featuring the bear from our Campfire Tails set!  We loved the bright colored sky and scene that she created! So pretty!  Jess actually made another card with a night scene too- We thought this card fit the color challenge better but loved both. Make sure to check out her other card too over on her blog, Basic Jess

Kitty Card byTanja using Newton's Nook Designs Stamps
This card by Tanja is so cute! Love the coloring on the kitty and the dot pattern. Plus, the woodgrain frame is so fun! Tanja used our  our Newton's Antics set!

Sweetie Pie Card by Barbara Campbell using Newton's Nook Designs Stamps
We loved the fun layout on this card with the folded paper corner by Barbara! What a great idea for double-sided papers! Barbara used our Love à la Carte Set. 

Just say Cheese card by Jen Willis using Newton's Nook Designs Stamps
This bright and colorful, Warhol inspired card by Jen also caught our eye! I love the simple, bright composition!  Jen used the cheese grater from our Just Say Cheese set

Thanks so much!
Thanks again to everyone who entered - We LOVE seeing all the entries! If you didn't win this time we hope you'll try again next month. It's always SO HARD to pick the winners because everyone does such a great job! 

This week only - Help us name our Bear - and WIN!

Since our "bear" has now been in several stamp sets, we thought it was time that he had his own name! With the help of our design team and friends we've chosen 6 names but now we need your help. Check out our poll on facebook and vote for your favorite name! At the end of the week we will choose 3 random winners from all the votes to win our new bear stamp set - releasing next week!
