Design Team Inspiration
Celebrate a birthday with Simply Celebrate Critters and the Add-On set. Joyce added party hats from Wild for You and Party Animal. Then she used Henry’s ABCs to spell out “celebrate” in silver glitter cardstock!
This special design by Karin is perfect to celebrate a wedding anniversary! She combined Swan Soirée swans with a cloud from Unicorn Picnic. To create the window, she used the oval from Shadow Box Card Spring Add-On.
Catherine‘s delightful design celebrates the Year of the Rabbit! She started with Fancy Lattice Backdrop in a pretty pink ombré blend. Then she added the How You Bean? Shaker Add-On filled with Year Eight fortune cookies. She found the rabbits in Eggstra Amazing Easter and the sentiments are from Fortune Teller Tabby and Offset Sayings: Christmas. For the knot and tassel she combined the yarn balls from Baaah Humbug with brooms from Booyah. So clever!
You may be a little late mailing this card, but who will care when it’s this adorable! Samantha paired the cute sloths from Hang in There and I Like Naps with leaves from A Bug Deal and the sentiment from Hang in There.
Samantha‘s clever design celebrates the birth of a new baby! She paired the critters from RAWR with a sweet sentiment from Hello Baby, then framed it all with the Magic Iris Tropical Leaves Add-On. The Watercolor Wishes paper makes a quick and pretty backdrop.
Mimi chose the Lunar New Year celebration of the Year of the Rabbit for her fun design! She used the rabbit border from Simply Celebrate Critters along with Bannertastic and Tree Before ‘n Afters. To create her custom sentiment, she used words and individual letters from Happy Happy Happy, Happy Happy Happy Add-On and Just For You. Can you guess what she used for the tiny hats on the rabbits? Let us know in the comments.
As always, Mimi added a totally clever element to her card. She assembled the Chinese Good Fortune character using pieces of dies from various sets in her stash.
Jenn invited a couple of friends to join Mister Harley, Jac and Gus to send happy congratulations! This colorful design featuring Simply Celebrate Critters with a sentiment from Simply Sentiments is perfect for so many happy celebrations! I love the rainbow stenciled brick wall.
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 139 – New Year Inspiration Board tomorrow! But for now, Let’s Celebrate your creativity!
