Design Team Inspiration


Christy used new Summer 2024 dies to create an incredible desert-scape! The Cactus Hillside Border has everything to build a great scene. Christy layered the desert panel on a Honeycomb Backdrop and finished her card with a birthday sentiment!


Franci‘s thank you card has fun farmer’s market vibes. She combined Stitched Garden Veggies, Stitched Root Veggies and Harvest Crate!


To create this whimsical design Samantha combined Happy Mushrooms with Stitched Ripple Backdrop, Scripty Hello and Scalloped Rectangle Stackables! So sweet!


Mimi‘s card is so bright and summery! She started with a Sunburst Backdrop, and a die cut greeting from Platform Pop-Up. Then she layered Flamingo Floatie with a Magic Iris Tropical Leaves Add-On as the feature. She got really creative and used the Build-A-Drink straw for the flamingo legs.


Karin‘s design is so stunning in its simplicity! After inking the background in deep, rich blue, she layered on Lovely Lily of the Valley and Scripty For You! Then she added this panel to a Fancy Scalloped Rectangle!


Joyce‘s Stitched Root Veggies carrots are so adorable on a gingham Fruit Salad backdrop! She framed them with Just Stitching Heart, then added hearts from Heart Garden Border and a sentiment from Carrot ‘Bout You!


Samantha was also thinking about summer, featuring Flamingo Floatie on a tall slimline card! She created the scene with Stitched Wave Borders, Hammock and Trees, and Stitched Hillside Borders. She spelled her punny greeting in Henry’s ABCs!


Catherine‘s brilliant design is inspired by a pineapple whip from Disneyland! She combined the new Froyo Friend with Playful Pineapple, then she added sunglasses (altered to fit) from Woodland Critter Huggers Summer Add-On. She created a fun Micky Mouse look on Quinn’s ABCs letters and added a not-so-hidden Mickey on the cup using Circle Stackables. She stamped a Simply Summer Sentiments greeting on a Stitched Sentiment Banner and layered everything on a Sunburst Backdrop.

Design Team Inspiration


Samantha C was inspired by this Sometimes Life is Prickly card by Mindy!


Samantha swapped out the porcupine for the Party Animal bear and chose the ice cream cones from Simply Celebrate Summer to make it her own!


Mimi found her inspiration in this veggie themed card that Jenn designed for Create with Us!


Mimi used the Veggie Happy mice to create a fun gardening scene with Stitched Garden Veggies and Stitched Root Veggies like Jenn’s card. She added Little Farm Fence Border and Stitched Wavy Backdrop: Landscape to her scene.


Karin was inspired by a new year card created by Samantha Mann!


Karin took the design inspiration from Samantha to create an elegant wedding card! Karin’s card features Happy Couples, Scripty Congrats, Henry’s Build-A-Sentiment: Spring, Mini Snowflakes and Let It Shine Starry Skies 6×6 paper.


Christy‘s son works road construction, so Catherine‘s clever design was perfect inspiration for a special card!


Christy stayed pretty faithful to Catherine’s original design while adding a few clever details to personalize her card. She also changed the sentiment, spelling out part of it in Finley’s ABCs. The scene came together with Hay There Hayrides, Rub-A-Dub-Dub, Beary Rainy Day and On the Road.


Franci was charmed by Chari‘s sweet design with Heart Garden Border and So Dam Much!


Franci made this card her own by using pretty patterned papers with a sweet sentiment from Butterfly Kisses.


Joyce loved Mimi‘s bubble bath design combining Rub-A-Dub-Dub with some cute mice!


Joyce used mice from Dandy Day and Virtual Friends! She used the cape from Happy Howloween for the towels hanging on the Purrfectly Wicked shelf.


Catherine was inspired to use Giant You Are #1 by Caly‘s fun Tiny Sports Friends card!


Rather than use the tiny friend’s soccer theme, Catherine created a boxing ring for the Kanga-rrific kangaroos! She used bubbles from Elephant Parade and Bubbles of Joy to create the boxing gloves. Just like Caly, she included the trophy from All-Star. In the background she stenciled with Sunray Background Stencil.


Samantha M was inspired by Jenn‘s glittery Quinn’s ABCs card design with lots of inky techniques!


Samantha created a summery design by inking a sunny, ocean background. Then she inked another panel to cut out the Quinn’s ABCs letters, adding lots of chunky glitter!

Design Team Inspiration


Samantha C chose the vertical column under I with prompts; bright, critter, lawn cuts, stamp and cute! I think she nailed it with this bright and cheery card featuring unicorns from Unicorn Picnic and A Little Sparkle. She added Lawn Cuts dies from Stitched Rainbow, Starry Skies and Puffy Cloud Backdrop: Landscape!


Mimi was also feeling the unicorn vibe, but she went a totally different direction. Working with the elements in row 3 she used Unicorn Party Foiled Washi Tape and Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frame. She colored the Dream Big unicorn with markers to create a happy birthday card! She spelled out the greeting with Finley’s ABCs and used lots of happy Rainbow Ever After paper too!


Joyce found her inspiration in the N column which contains heart, ink, birthday, cardstock and stencil! Her delightful card features stenciled heart balloons and confetti from Balloon Stencil along with the cute Really High Five critters with a birthday sentiment. She used Moonstone cardstock for the background and Moonstone, Forget-Me-Not and Manatee ink for the stenciling!


Karin used the prompts in the O column to create a happy, interactive card with mice and glitter! Her card features Happy Couples, with the flower arbor as the shaker window filled with colorful sequins. The Happy Anniversary sentiment is from Henry’s Build-A-Sentiment: Spring. She also used foam squares to add dimension!


Franci chose the I column creating a bright and cute card with a critter made with Garden Snail Lawn Cuts! And to bring in a stamped element she added a sweet little sentiment from Butterfly Kisses!


Samantha‘s beautiful card is inspired by the G column! She used the Woodgrain Background Hot Foil Plate, then added rainbow inking on top. She colored the Hive Five images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers before using scissors to fussy cut them!


Christy found inspiration for her adorable birthday card using the top left to bottom right diagonal line! She used a paper trimmer to cut a panel for the ink-blended and Birch Tree stenciled background. She invited lots of critters from Simple Celebrate More Critters and Toucan Do It to a birthday party with a Giant Happy Birthday to You greeting!


Catherine was also inspired by the I column to create this totally clever design! She filled it with bright color, cute critters and Lawn Cuts dies with Stitched Root Veggies and Stitched Garden Veggies! Be sure to visit her blog for all the details for how she made this fun grocery shopping scene!


Following the G column, Jenn used two hot foil elements with Foiled Sentiments: Sending Rainbows and Cloud Background Hot Foil Plate: Landscape. She inked the background and the sentiment circle with rainbow colors and added more rainbows with My Rainbow!

We will have more Bingo Design Team inspiration right here over the next 3 weeksBe sure to come back on Thursday April 18 when we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 170 – Patterned Paper!
