Today we have our first post by our June Guest Designer, Amy Tollner! Amy has been an active participant in our Inky Paws Challenges for sometime and we have been admiring her creations!

Keep reading to find out more about her today and to check out her first project below.
Hi everyone! My name is Amy Tollner and I live in upstate New York with my husband, fur babies, and a turtle. I am an X-ray technologist and work three 12 hour days, which I love, because it gives me time to craft and volunteer for our local animal shelter. I have been making cards for about 5 years now. I really enjoy coloring stamped images with Copic markers, and I love using glitter and glossy accents for finishing touches on my projects! I am very honored and beyond excited to be the Guest Designer for Newton's Nook Designs this month. They are my favorite company and I love creating with their awesome products! Thank you so much and I hope you enjoy!

Hi everyone! For my first post I created two shaker cards because I couldn’t decide on just one!

I started by blending Distress Oxide Ink backgrounds. For the first card I used Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, and Blueprint Sketch. On the second card I used Squeezed Lemonade and Picked Raspberry. They blend together very well to make that pretty orangey-coral color.
I then used the postage stamp die from the Framework Die Set, and the scalloped edge die from the Frames & Flags Die Set to cut out my backgrounds. After that, I used gorgeous glitter paste with one of my favorite stencils, the Confetti Stencil, to finish off my background pieces.

I love using the Framework Die Set pictured below to make a shaker card.  It’s just the right size to see the beautiful background you created and still add a fun shaker element to your card!  I added Distress Oxide Ink to the frames of each shaker.

For the sentiment I used black pigment ink and clear heat embossed over it for a shiny look!  I attached my sentiment piece with liquid glue, patted down the acetate with a dryer sheet to help with static, and used two layers of foam tape to attach the shaker frames.  
For this card I used the Paw-some Birthday Stamp Set and the coordinating Die Set and colored it with Copic markers.
