Let’s see what our amazing Design Team was inspired to create!
Mimi was inspired by the rainbow image to create a charming sidewalk chalk art design! She used the cute kids from Joy to All and Screen Time for the little artists and she altered the candles from Birthday Before ‘n Afters and the wand from Fairy Friends to make the chalk! And then she used die cuts as stencils to color in the chalk drawings on the watercolor paper “sidewalk”. The greeting is a mix of Henry’s ABCs and Color My World.
Karin was inspired by the Easter eggs to create this beautiful card! She used Eggstra Amazing Easter and Butterfly Kisses to make the scene and then she added the sentiment from Bicycle Built for You!
The color palette is great for creating adorable Easter cards! Joyce‘s design is so sweet with the cute Tiny Spring Friends arranged on and around the Giant Happy Easter greeting! The two rows of Simple Grassy Hillsides add dimension and fun design to her card!
Christy was inspired by the flowers and colors to create this cheerful scene! She included Garden Before ‘n Afters, Berry Special, A Creature was Stirring and A Bug Deal. She made the scenery with Cloudy Stencil and Grassy Border.
Samantha‘s card is so whimsical and fun! She incorporated the color palette and the flowers along with the adorable Chirpy Chirp Chirp chicks! I love how she added extra detail in the background with Just Stitching Double Rectangles!
Samantha M was inspired by the rainbow image and created a fun twist on the theme! She stamped several rainbows with All the Clouds, coloring each one in a different rainbow color. Such a clever idea! She added the raindrops with Rainy Sky Stencil and Stencil Paste in white.
Catherine was inspired to create an adorable scene! She combined Tiny Spring Friends, Village Shops, and Car Critters in cute scenes in the Peekaboo Backdrop windows! Then she filled in with lots of cute details from Happy Trails, Giant Easter Messages, Coaster Critters, Simply Celebrate Spring and Chirpy Chirp Chirp!
Jenn created a beautiful pair of cards that show us the difference between Distress Oxide Ink Spray and the original Distress Ink Spray! The Distress Oxide sprays have a softer, muted look compared to the bright color of the original sprays. Jenn’s design is so unique; she kept the Rainbow white with glittery detail and added the rainbow color in the background! Then she used Riley’s ABCs to stamp the custom greeting.
We will share more Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 121 – Inspired by a Book, Movie or Song tomorrow! Now it’s time for you to get creative!
