Design Team Inspiration


Christy loves to use patterned papers in her designs, and the combinations always look so amazing. For this card she used pretty pastel paper from Rainbow Ever After. They are the perfect backdrop for her sweet Winter Birds scene!


Catherine created a brilliant patchwork “stuffed dog” to highlight the pretty Rainbow Ever After and What’s Sewing On papers. She pieced together the dog using Tiny Gift Box Dog Add-On for the head and Raccoon and Fox Add-On for the body. She also used the coordinating egg die from Chirpy Chirp Chirp for the body and Circle Stackables for the paws as well. The buttons and the sentiment are from Sewn with Love. And Catherine used Foursquare Backdrop: Portrait to create a “quilt”.


Mimi‘s card is Just Plane Awesome! She used papers from Rainbow Ever After and Into the Woods Remix to create wallpaper and a wood floor. Then she created her own “paper” to fill the Window Frame panes using Just Plane Awesome Foiled Washi tape! So clever!


Samantha made a sweet sewing themed design by combining What’s Sewing On paper with Sew Very Mice stamped images! She created cute little scenes on a Foursquare Backdrop: Landscape.


Karin‘s simple design has big impact with her brightly inked Giant Sending Big Hugs greeting! The Rainbow Ever After paper is the perfect background, layered on a black Fancy Scalloped Rectangle! I love the cute little birds from Happy Couples!


I love that Joyce used the pretty What’s Sewing On paper to create an adorable gift tag! It looks great with the cute Veggie Happy and Veggie Happy Add-On images!


The fun plaid papers give Franci‘s card a fresh farmhouse look! She combined our Stitched Garden Veggies and Stitched Root Veggies with cute smiling faces in a totally charming design!


Samantha combined papers from Really Rainbow and Into the Woods Remix Petite Packs to create a cheery birthday card! She cut the Outside In Stitched Balloons from the patterned papers. Then she added a greeting from Party Animal on a vellum Fancy Wavy Banner!

Design Team Inspiration


Catherine assembled lots of cute critters to illustrate a happy Winnie the Pooh scene! Pooh bear is played by Little Snow Globe: Bear. Piglet is from Tiny Farm, Roo is from Kanga-rrific, Rabbit is from Eggstra Amazing Easter and Owl is from S’more the Merrier!


Inspired by the back cover of Little Golden Books, Christy combined a bunch of woodland critters sets to create a lovely birthday card! She used Porcu-pine for You, Scent with Love, Let’s Go Nuts, Wood You Be Mine, Critters in the Arctic and A Bug Deal.


Mimi‘s design is so clever, inspired by The Super Mario Bros Movie! As always, Mimi likes to shop her stash to create lookalike characters! Here’s the list of sets she used:
Mario/Luigi
Ugly and Bright -bear (masked bear nose/mouth), letters L,M on cap
Little Bundle -overalls
Special Delivery -cap
Dad + Me – mustache on Mario, sentiment
Thanks a Latte – mustache for Luigi
Costume Party -jack’o lantern eyes for eyebrows
Toads
On the Beach -coconut drink for cap
Tiny Friends – ‘mom’
You Are Sublime -circles on cap from submarine
Mushrooms
Oh Gnome!
Porcu-Pine For You


Franci combined Veggie Happy and Eggstra Amazing Easter to create a card inspired by Peter Rabbit!


Samantha created a sweet design inspired by Alice in Wonderland! She filled her scene with images from Bicycle Built for You, Tea-rrific Day and Tea-rrific Day Add-On. She also used Oh Gnome, Meadow Backdrop: Portrait and Spring Showers!


Joyce was inspired by the movie “You’ve Got Mail”, where Tom Hanks’ character Joe Fox and his dog Brinkley have just received an e-mail from Meg Ryan’s Kathleen Kelly. She used images from Virtual Friends and Virtual Friends Add-On. She also added to her scene with Screen Time, Yappy Birthday, You’re Just My Type, Den Sweet Den, Special Delivery and Love Letters.


This interesting design by Karin was inspired by a favorite book she read last year: Charlotte McConaghy’s Once There Were Wolves about Inti who wants to save the wolves and care for her younger sister Aggie. The sisters are both glad they are “in the same pack. She illustrated the theme using Wild Wolves and Lift the Flap Tree Backdrop.


Samantha was inspired by her all-time favorite book series: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas. She used Cloudy Stencil, Stitched Mountain Borders to illustrate her theme. Then she used Milo’s ABCs to add a quote.


Jenn‘s super sweet card is inspired by Strawberry Shortcake! She used Outside In Stitched Strawberry and Strawberry Patch along with Berry Special and Meow You Doin’. She made the sentiment with Finley’s ABCs and Riley’s ABCs, then she assembled everything on water-color clouds using Cloud Background Stencil.

Design Team Inspiration


Samantha knows we love a punny sentiment and this one from Year Thirteen is so much fun! Samantha also used images from Let’s Roll and Really High Five. All the happy images look great with the brick background stenciled with Distress Oxide Inks in Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Cracked Pistachio.


What could be more festive for a birthday than sparkly, hot-foiled fireworks! Catherine built a fun party scene on a Platform Pop-Up with the Platform Pop-Up Cloud Wrap Around. She die-cut the clouds from Rainbow Ever After paper and another from vellum to create a pretty layered look. And she also used Cake Slice Box to make the sprinkle covered birthday cake. Then she added more cuteness with a mouse from Dandy Day and the ladder from Apple-solutely Awesome. The sentiment combines Henry’s Build-A-Sentiment: Spring with a greeting from Elphie Selfie.


Karin‘s beautifully simple design features our new Lovely Lily of the Valley Lawn Cuts sets. She arranged the flowers on a Scalloped Slimline with Hearts: Portrait base, then she added a Henry’s Build-A-Sentiment: Spring greeting on an Everyday Sentiment Banner.


These cute porcupines are celebrating in style in Christy‘s lovely birthday scene! She set a fancy table with goodies from Tea-rrific Day and Tea-rrific Day Add-On for this sweet birthday party!


These farm critters are ready to someone a very happy birthday! Joyce created her cute farm-inspired card with Simply Celebrate More Critters, All the Party Hats, All the Speech Bubbles and Little Farm Fence Border. For the background she used Fruit Salad paper and Apricot cardstock.


Franci‘s Veggie Happy card is perfect for all of your friends and family who love to garden! She arranged her images on a simple watercolor background and added a birthday greeting from Party Animal!



Mimi‘s interactive pull-tab card is the perfect way to say, “happy birthday to roo”! She used both Kanga-rrific and Kanga-rrific Add-On, with All the Party Hats and balloons from Bicycle Built for You. I love how she hid the little joey and balloons inside the Holiday Helpers box. They pop-up with the help of Let’s Toast Pull-Tab Add-On.


The whole Hay There herd is sending happy birthday wishes on Samantha‘s whimsical card! She also used Hay There, Hayrides and Birthday Before ‘n Afters to complete her “on the farm” scene! She used Just Stitching Double Rectangles on her background panel, adding color with Distress Oxide inks in Abandoned Coral, Scattered Straw and Wilted Violet. Then she added “clouds” from Meadow Backdrop: Portrait.

We will have more All Things Birthday Design Team inspiration right here over the next 2 weeks! Be sure to come back tomorrow when we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 167 –Spring Fling!
