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!
