Design Team Inspiration

Karin created a clean and simple design that is absolutely gorgeous! I love how she curved the strawberry border from Berry Special to fit the sketch shape. Her sunny sentiment is found in Window Scene: Spring!

Christy used lots of creativity to interpret the sketch! The Car Critters car stands in for the half circle element while she flipped the design to add the sentiment at the top! She also used Stitched Mountain Borders, Car Critters Christmas Add-On and Tiny Christmas.

For her beautiful interpretation of the sketch, Mimi created a glowing winter moon! She included a cute wintry scene along with the sentiment. It features Let’s Go Nuts, Winter in the Park and streetlamps from Here We Go A-Waddling. I love how she used Sandy Beach Accents to make snow drifts for the squirrels to hide their acorns.

Samantha‘s design is so charming! She used the igloo from Penguin Party as the circular element with some cute bears from Snow Much Fun! She prettied up the Home for the Holidays sentiment with trees from Yeti or Not.

Franci created a sweet Winter Skies scene that closely follows the sketch. She stenciled the moon using Nighttime Sky Stencil.

Samantha‘s card is perfect to celebrate a birthday! Her design combines Outside In Stitched Balloon Stackables with the sweet little puppy from Joy to All! Her sentiment is found in Meow You Doin’.

The Fangtastic Friends bats are celebrating a happy holiday in Joyce‘s fun design. The Full Moon die fits the sketch perfectly!

The Beary Rainy Day bears are having fun with a giant snowball in Catherine‘s clever interactive design! She altered a Stitched Rectangle using an Outside In Stitched Balloon to work with the wheel from Reveal Wheel. In the background she added Snowflake Background Stencil, then she combined words from Den Sweet Den and Cozy Christmas to make the sentiment.

Jenn followed the sketch using Nighttime Sky Stencil and the Winter Skies bears. She created her “magical” design with beautiful ink-blending and lots of glitter!

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 137 – Holiday Critters tomorrow! Now it’s time to get creative with the Card Sketch!

This design is so simply adorable! Karin featured the cute critters of Upon a Star with a simple Christmas tree. She created the little scene on an ink-blended Stitched Circle, then layered it on a Fancy Scalloped Circle. She used Gold Metallic cardstock to die cut the stars and Scripty Merry.

Jenn Takes the Ugly and Bright Critters to the Beach!

Jenn joins us today with more charming Holiday Critters inspiration!

Jenn’s adorable scene takes the Ugly and Bright critters to the beach for a cozy holiday! She began by stenciling the snowflakes in the background with Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide ink. Then she stamped all the images (see supply list below for the sets she used) with Jet Black Ink before coloring them with Copic markers.

All the glittery accents were adding using Quickie Glue and Prisma and Chunky Glitter.

She inked the Henry’s ABCs with Kitsch Flamingo and Lobster Ink to create a fun ombré, then she covered the lower part of each letter with Chunky Glitter.

As always, Jenn shares a Copic marker chart so you can recreate her cheery coloring!
