    Several of our Design Team Members decided to play along - check out all the awesome PLAID cards they created! Read the description below each card to see who made it.
    Inky Paws Challenge 37 - Plaid | Plaid skyline card by Samantha Mann | Newton Dreams of New York stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs
    Samantha created a plaid background for her card using masks and inks! So cool! She created the city using images from the Newton Dreams of New York  and Newton Dreams of London stamp sets and the sleigh and sentiment are from the Newton's Curious Christmas stamp set. 

    Inky Paws Challenge 37 - Plaid | Plaid fox thank you card by Larissa Heskett | Bushels of Love stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs
    Larissa created a sweet little shaker card with a fun plaid border! She used images from the Bushels of Love stamp set (Simon Says Stamp Exclusive). Adorable!

    Inky Paws Challenge 37 - Plaid | Plaid Thank you card with pumpkins by Naki Rager | Pick-a-Pumpkin Die set by Newton's Nook Designs
    Naki created a fun fall thank you card using plaid paper and letters! She added in pumpkins cut out with the Pick-a-Pumpkin Die Set. That stitched ribbon is so pretty too!

    Inky Paws Challenge 37 - Plaid | Plaid Dog cards by Yukari Yoshioka | Canine Christmas Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs
    Yuki created a duo of adorable dog cards using dogs from our Canine Christmas stamp set with fun plaid backgrounds. The color combo on these cards of black, red, kraft and white is one of my favorites for Holiday cards!

    Inky Paws Challenge 37 - Plaid | Plaid Bear Fall  Card by Danielle Paneline | Winston's Birthday Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs
    Danielle added plaid paper in fall colors to create this fun card! The angles of paper in the background are so fun! Winston from the Winston's Birthday stamp set really pops off the card! 

    Inky Paws Challenge 37 - Plaid | Plaid Bear in Car Christmas Card by Jennifer Jackson | Winston's Home for Christmas Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs
    I pulled out one of my favorite christmas images, Winston driving a car laden with holiday goodies from the Winston's Home for Christmas Stamp Set. I colored the image with watercolors and then added plaid paper along with some black chalkboard style washi tape. I finished it off with the sentiment "have a beary merry christmas" embossed in white on a black circle.
