New Year Inspiration with Guest Designer Mimi

Happy Monday! It’s the last week of 2020 and our amazing Guest Designer, Mimi has created the most charming card to see off this year and bring in a shiny new year!

Our New Year challenge will be open until Sunday, January 3 at 11:59PM ET. We hope you will join the challenge; we can’t wait to see your creativity!


The mice are happily switching their calendars on Mimi’s interactive pull-tab card design! She used the desk and typewriter from You’re Just My Type. She added homey touches with images from Den Sweet Den. How cute is the lamp that she altered to make it a floor lamp! So clever!

She created the messages by combining words from Yeti or Not, For You Deer and numbers from Smitty’s ABCs.

There’s more clever innovation on this card! Mimi used Let’s BBQ to create the stools with the grill legs and the hot dog and hamburger for the cushions! I’m amazed by her brilliant creativity!

I love how the message on the typewriter changes as the tab is pulled! The mice are clearly ready for a new year, they are celebrating with party hats and removing the old calendar pages to the wastebasket!

Big hugs and thanks to Mimi for sharing her amazing creativity for the New Year challenge! Be sure to check her out at Instagram where she is known at dasmimz.

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 will share Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 90 tomorrow!

Adorable Happy Holiday Critters Inspiration with our Guest Designer Valerie

Our Happy Holiday Critters challenge has one more week until the gallery closes! We are so impressed with all the great entries so far! We hope you will check out all the amazing inspiration and join the fun!

Today we are happy to share another fantastic Happy Holiday Critters card by our Guest Designer Valerie!

This tall slimline design is perfect for Valerie’s multi-layered Winter Village scene! It is complete with adorable yetis snowboarding and enjoying frosty treats!

Using a combination of Stitched Hillside Borders and Simple Stitched Hillside Borders, all cut from Pixie Dust Sparkle cardstock, Valerie was able to create the look of a charming winter village on a snow-covered mountainside!

I love that Valerie added a fun interactive element by creating a slider for the cool snowboarding yeti!

Valerie included the Tiny Christmas Santa with the sleigh and reindeer from Over the Mountain Borders at the top! She used two patterns from the Into the Woods Remix collection: the clouds of Spruce Remix and the happy orange stripes of Oak Remix!

Thank you so much for joining us for this challenge, Valerie! We loved sharing your amazing cards; your creativity totally inspired us!
