We are happy to welcome Catherine Cohen as our Guest Designer for this challenge! She is so talented and consistently wows us with her amazing card projects! You can find her on Instagram HERE!

Let’s see how Catherine was inspired by our Awesome Autumn challenge!

I love that Catherine used our Acorn House as school house for the happy Let’s Go Nuts squirrels! She used Lift the Flap Tree Backdrop in a clever way by cutting the trees apart to frame the house! She filled the sky with fluffy stenciled clouds.

To add all the fun details to this happy scene, Catherine borrowed the clock from Plan on It: Appointments and the bell from Here We Go A-Waddling! Jump for Joy and Den Sweet Den fill the scene with leaves and school books!

Now let’s see what our amazing Design Team created to inspire us!

Franci used our brand new You Autumn Know set to create her sweet and thoughtful card! I love how her beautiful coloring adds softness to traditional Fall colors!

Christy was inspired to create an adorable Halloween card featuring Purrfectly Wicked! She blended the background using Distress Oxide inks. How cute is that little Happy Harvest pumpkin on the shelf with the books and potions?!

Samantha C added glittery goodness to her Acorn House scene using the Autumn Sparkle cardstock pack. She combined images from So Owlsome, Jump for Joy and Let’s Go Nuts to create her whimsical thank you card!

Jessica made a fantastic shaker card using our new Window Frame die set! She used Let’s Go Nuts to create a fun scene outside the window and filled the shaker with leaves from Leafy Tree Backdrop: Portrait. She combined Oliver’s Stitched ABCs with a sentiment from Mermaid for You to add the glittery gold greeting!

Karin‘s gorgeous card sends a message of thankfulness! She used Fall Leaves Background Stencils to add the beautiful pattern to her card. Then she combined Scripty For You, die cut from Gold Metallic cardstock with a gold embossed sentiment from You Autumn Know.

Joyce created the most adorable birthday card featuring Acorn House! She used mushrooms from Oh Gnome! to set the scene for the Let’s Go Nuts squirrels. She ink blended the beautiful background along with the pretty falling leaves found in Acorn House. As a fun finishing touch, she added the sign from Build-A-Campsite to point the way to the nuts!

Samantha M used a beautifully unconventional Fall color palette to create her sweet encouragement card! She layered lots of Stitched Leaves with Big Acorn, finishing with a sentiment from Let’s Go Nuts!

Caly‘s fun card declares Fall is Here! The Let’s Go Nuts squirrels are busy storing up acorns and raking leaves, you know all those fun seasonal activities! She used Lift the Flap Tree Backdrop to anchor the action in this happy scene!

I hope you have been inspired to create some fun Autumn themed projects! We will share Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 108 – Photo Inspiration tomorrow! Now it’s time for you to get creative!

Jessica’s Purrfectly Wicked Inspiration

Our Photo Inspiration Challenge will be open until this Sunday, September 19 at 11:59PM ET. We can’t wait to see YOUR project inspired by the photo!

Good morning! Jess here with a card for our current inspiration photo challenge!  I decided to use the greener shades and the movement in the photo as inspiration for my Halloween card!

To start I used blending brushes to lightly apply Cracked Pistachio, Salvaged Patina, and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink randomly across a panel of Strathmore Bristol smooth cardstock.  Next, I placed the Bubbles Stencil over the panel and used a slightly heavier hand to blend the same colors over the stencil to create bubbles. I rotated and flipped the stencil around to get a variety in the direction and shape of the bubbles. 

I splattered the panel with water and shimmer spray and then let it dry. Once it was dry, I die-cut it with the largest Stitched Rectangle die.  Then I placed the stencil over the panel again and applied a layer of white glitter glitz gel and let the panel dry completely.

While the panel was drying, I stamped the sentiment from Purrfectly Wicked onto Black Licorice cardstock and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder.  I also stamped a bunch of images from Purrfectly Wicked and colored them with Copic markers before die-cutting them with the coordinating dies.  I used a cool and toner grey Copic markers to get the variation in shades between the cats, cauldron, and hat! 

Once the panel was dry, I trimmed my sentiment down into two thin labels and adhered it with foam mounting tape.  I also adhered the colored images to create my little Halloween scene.  I love how the bubble stenciling makes it look like their cauldron brew is really getting out of control!

And that’s it!  You one more weekend to get crafty and I can’t wait to see how the challenge photo inspires your creations! Thanks so much for stopping by and have an amazing weekend! -Jess
