Samantha’s Adorable Teddy Bear Party!

Samantha Mann joins us today with some super adorable inspiration for our Little Things challenge! She found cute little things for this birthday card in You’re Claw-some and Party Animal!

Samantha used the cute little teddy bears from You’re Claw-some with itty bitty party accessories from Party Animal! The greeting was white heat-embossed on a Black Licorice Fancy Wavy Banner!

For the background, Samantha blended on a dreamy combination of Distress Oxide inks! The splatters of water and white paint add to the happy design!

Thank you, Samantha! These cute little teddy bears and the happy colors are such fun inspiration!


The Little Things challenge runs for 3 weeks and will be open until Sunday, August 4 at 11:59PM ET. We hope you will join us! Click HERE to go to the challenge post!

Jessica’s Seahorsin’ Around Aquatic Scene!

Good morning! Jess here with a card for our current Little Things challenge! Today I decided to use the cute little seahorse mini set, Seahorsin’ Around to create a magical aquatic scene!

To start I stamped the seahorses and heart with black Versafine ink and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder. Then I colored them with Copic markers and die-cut them with the coordinating dies. I also added a few accents with a white gel pen. I stamped the sentiment onto Black Licorice cardstock with Clear Embossing Ink and heat-embossed it with gold embossing powder. Then I trimmed it down to a fishtail flag.

Next I created my background. I’ve been trying different alcohol ink techniques this summer to get different textures and dimensions and I thought this piece was perfect for waves. I used Copic refills in BG10, BG11, and B66 along with brass metallic ink to create the background and added bubble splatters with isopropyl alcohol. I finished the panel by adding a little liquid glue along the bottom and pressing gold leaf into the glue. Once the glue dried I brushed off the excess flakes. I adhered my sentiment and heart with liquid glue and then adhered my seahorses with foam mounting tape for a little extra dimension! I finished the card by adding a little Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle to the seahorses and heart.

And that’s it! You have two more weeks to get crafty for our Little Things challenge and I can’t wait to see how the little things inspire you! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend!



Happy crafting this weekend, Fawnatics friends!
