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!

We are so happy to welcome Mimi as our Guest Designer for this challenge! You probably know and follow her as dasmimz on Instagram. She has been impressing us with her amazing creativity and we are so excited to share her New Year projects! Look for her second card to inspire you next week!

Mimi was inspired by the cool bokeh image in the Inspiration Board to create this amazing design! The Snow Much Fun and Den Sweet Den bears are celebrating the new year in style! Mimi used Let’s Bokeh to make a festive backdrop for her cheery scene! To make this an interactive card, Mimi used the Waving Pull-Tab Starter Set to make the bear wave his paws with the party accessories.

Now let’s check out the Happy New Year projects by our amazing Design Team!

The Really High Five critters are flyin’ by with Happy New Year wishes on Caly‘s fun design! She used the Puffy Cloud Backdrop: Portrait to create the that awesome background which she blended with pretty pastel inks! She used Oliver’s Stitched 123s in glittery gold and a Fancy Wavy Banner to stamped with a Winter Wavy Sayings sentiment to complete the happy greeting!

Franci’s mice are baking up a sweet wish for the new year! She combined A Creature Was Stirring and Baked with Love to create this lovely confection!

Samantha was inspired by the bokeh image in the inspiration board! She used Let’s Bokeh to create shiny clear embossed “bubbles” on a beautifully inked backdrop! The greeting is found in the Let’s Bokeh set as well.

Karin‘s card is so beautiful with its colorful Stitched Poinsettia and Oliver’s Stitched 123s in metallic gold! I love the pretty Quilted Backdrop behind the flower and all the fun layers!

Christy‘s beautiful interactive card is a wonderful mix of old and new! She created a Magic Iris Snow Globe Add-On design featuring Ready Set Snow, Let It Shine papers and a greeting from Merry Messages!

Samantha used a festive color palette with shiny gold and gray to create this happy new year card! She combined Scripty Cheers with cute images from Party Animal with Metallic Gold and Shimmer cardstock. The star in the background is our classic Puffy Star Stackables cut from Cream Sprinkle and Shine Let It Shine paper!

Jessica‘s design features a Woodland Critter Hugger decked out in accessories from the Winter Add-On on a tall slimline card! When you open the critters arms the greeting combining Happy Happy Happy Add-On and Scripty Cheers is completed using Finley’s 123s!

Joyce created a lovely card with wishes for a year filled with happiness using Tree Before ‘n Afters! It is simply beautiful!

Jenn is the bringing the sparkly bling and bold bokeh in her new year design! She used Oliver’s Stitched ABCs and 123s to spell out the Chunky and Prisma Glitter sprinkled greeting! She finished the message on a Fancy Folded Banner!

We are so happy to welcome a super talented Guest Designer for this challenge! Say hello to Nancy van Oosten! You know her as @creastudionancy on Instagram and we are sure her amazing creativity has wowed and inspired you! You can also find her creativity at her blog and YouTube channel.

Nancy created a magical scene with a gorgeous color palette featuring Gnome Sweet Gnome, A Bug Deal and Fairy Friends! She filled out the landscape with Stitched Tree Borders and Mushroom Border! I love how she called attention to the Lucky Stars sentiment by framing it with the Stitched Rainbow! So very clever!


Now let’s check out some beautiful inspiration by our amazing Design Team!

Joyce filled this super happy card with lots of creative fun! She used Oliver’s Stitched ABCs to spell out part of the greeting, replacing the i with the cute jumping bunny from Really High Five!

Samantha‘s pretty card features lots of fun dies and one adorable little ant from Crazy Antics! This design has a Fancy Lattice Backdrop in neutral cardstock colors of Kraft and Paper Bag. The Scripty Hello and Stitched Speech Bubble Frame are cut from Vanilla Malt cardstock to continue the neutral colors. Samantha backed the speech bubble with vellum to allow the greeting to stand out!

It doesn’t get much more charming than Franci‘s Dandy Day design! She spelled out “hello” with Finley’s ABCs die cuts and framed it all with a Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frame!

Christy‘s Scripty Hugs greeting blends seamlessly into the inky background of her amazing Ocean Shell-fie card! She used Large Slimline Sliders and Slimline Stitched Hillside Borders to create this long underwater scene! I love how she combined a sweet sentiment from Mom + Me with the die cut word!

Karin‘s delightful design uses a fun image from Fortune Teller Tabby that calls attention to the sentiment! Her beautiful inky background and die cut stars add to the mysterious look of this beautiful card!

Caly‘s joyful design combines Happy Village with Village Heroes in a slimline design on a stenciled cloud backdrop! The charming greeting is a combination of Scripty Sweet and Oliver’s Stitched ABCs.

Samantha‘s awesome Halloween design spells out BOO using Oliver’s Stitched ABCs! I love how she dressed the letters up with in costumes from Booyah! To make the cool background she used the inside part from a Stitched Cloud Frame as a mask to do some fantastic ink blending!

Jessica created a custom greeting from an inspirational quote! She spelled it out with Finley’s ABCs dies and Milo’s ABCs white heat-embossed on the cool galaxy backdrop! The Out of This World and Upon a Star images add lots of cuteness to this special card!

Jenn‘s cards are filled with bold, bright colors from alcohol inks! The beautiful design features a simple die cut hello that is found in the Magic Color Slider die set.
