Samantha’s Beautiful Rainbow!

I am so excited to see all of the amazing projects you are sharing in the What’s the Weather? challenge gallery! You guys are so creative! And just in case you need more inspiration, Samantha joins us today with a beautiful card that features our Rainbow die!

To create this colorful rainbow, Samantha ink blended each stripe with Distress ink! Then to add lots of awesome dimension she splattered the rainbow with white acrylic paint! She stamped the large smiling face from Let’s Toast on the rainbow and layered it behind Puffy Cloud Borders cut from white cardstock and vellum!

To finish this fabulous design with extra fun, Samantha added stars with embossing paste with a star stencil over the whole card! Then she added her special sentiment from Critters at the Dog Park!

Thank you so much, Samantha, for sharing this incredible inspiration with us today!

Our What’s the Weather? challenge will be open until Sunday, March 3 at 11:59PM ET. We hope you will join us!

A Clever Rainbow Card by Marine!

We are so happy to have our Guest Designer, Marine Simon, back to share another amazing card project for our current challenge, What’s the Weather?! This challenge will be open until Sunday, March 3 at 11:59PM ET.

To make the oversized umbrella, Marine used the largest hot air balloon from Blue Skies and modified to look like an umbrella! She colored the umbrella with rainbow colors then stamped the water-drops from Gnome Sweet Gnome in coordinating colors to make it the colorful raindrops!

To complete this fabulous card, Marine added a pair of bunnies from Some Bunny holding onto the umbrella! If the umbrella handle looks familiar it’s because it’s the lantern hanger from Fairy Friends, I love how Marine uses images so creatively! The sentiment from Starry Backdrops is curved to fit the shape of the umbrella and white embossed to pop against the watercolor sky!

Thank you so much for inspiring us today with this totally charming card, Marine! We are so happy that you joined us as a Guest Designer for this challenge!

Christy’s Cute New Baby Card

Hey everyone, it’s Christy here with a sweet baby shower card for our What’s the Weather Challenge. One of my co-workers is about to become a first-time grandma, and she loves elephants for baby girls, so I combined a couple of sets to create her a congratulations card with that theme.

I started by stamping out the mama elephant from Wild for You, the baby elephant from Elphie Selfie, and the umbrella and rattle from Hello Baby. I colored them in Copic markers using a soft color palette of warm gray, pink, and mint. Then I trimmed them out with the matching dies.

For the background, I die cut a Stitched Circle Stackable and sponged on some distress ink using a stencil to create some pale gray clouds and a little patch of grass. I added a sentiment and a few raindrops from Hello Baby as well. I layered this onto a Fancy Scalloped Circle Stackable to give it that delicate eyelet-looking edge.

I layered some patterned papers over my card base, die cutting the largest with a Stitched Rectangle Stackable, and used the Stitched Party Banner to selectively die cut a flag end on my banner. I popped the focal panel up with foam tape for a little dimension and added some white gel pen polka dots to the rattle and umbrella as a finishing touch.

If you’d like to see how this card came together, check out the video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty. There’s still plenty of time to enter our What’s the Weather Challenge! I can’t wait to see what you create!

Our What’s the Weather challenge will be open until Sunday, March 3 at 11:59PM ET. We hope you will join us!
Have an awesome weekend, Fawnatics friends!
