Samantha’s Whimsical Spectacular Sky!

Be sure to link up your Spectacular Skies projects HERE. This challenge will be open until Sunday, October 17th at 11:59PM ET.

Samantha C created the cutest, most whimsical inspiration for you today!

Samantha used leaves and branches from A Bug Deal and Hey Lady to create a fun design! She placed the little worm from A Bug Deal on one of the leaves and gave him an apple from So Owlsome!

She colored the leaves to match the leaves in the inspiration photo and used Mint Sprinkle ‘n Shine paper for the blue sky! I love the Spring Showers clouds, they are cut from vellum to add just a hint texture in the background!

Thanks so much for this sweet inspiration, Samantha!

Christy’s Happy Pup Fall Inspiration

Our Awesome Autumn challenge will be open until Sunday, October 3rd at 11:59PM ET

Hello friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our Awesome Autumn Challenge! For this one, I wanted to take the sweet little pup from Joy to All and use him on a fall card. I paired him with images from Jump for Joy, A Bug Deal, Critters at the Dog Park, and a sentiment from Critter Chatter: Pets. I colored all the images with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

For the background I die cut a piece of Bristol Smooth Surface Cardstock with the second largest of the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables and blended on some Peachy Keen Ink using the Cloudy Stencil for the sky, then added a bit of Celery Stick to the bottom for the grass. I did some splatters with a pale gold watercolor from the Gansai Tambi Starry Colors. Then I stamped the rest of my sentiment in Walnut Ink on an Everyday Sentiment Banner.

I chose two patterned papers from the Sweater Weather Remix 6×6 pad and die cut them with the largest of the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables and glued them to an Apricot card base. Then I popped up my focal panel with Scotch 3M Foam Tape and adhered my images. As a final touch, I added a bit of Platinum Stickles on the leaves and some stamped swirls in Hippo Ink near the falling leaves.

If you’d like to see this cute card come together and how I finished off the inside, check out the video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty!

It’s new challenge time again! For this challenge little things will be the stars of your project! Check out the sets in your stash, stamp or dies, and make the small images the focus of your design!

We invite you to share your creativity by linking up your crafty projects at the end of this post! Your project should feature Lawn Fawn stamps, dies and papers. This challenge will run for 2 weeks and be open until Sunday, July 4th at 11:59PM ET.

For each challenge, we will randomly select an entry to receive a $25.00 gift certificate to the Lawn Fawn shop! We will also be highlighting a few of your fabulous projects at the close of each challenge! By linking your projects to our challenges you will give permission for us to post your work to this blog and our social media sites. Check out the How to Play page for a few guidelines to play along. We want this to be FUN so we’ll keep the rules to just a few!

Let’s see how our amazing Design Team was inspired by this new theme!

Franci combined lots of the cute little things in Ocean Shell-fie and Mermaid for You to create this happy design!

Caly used the little things from A Bug Deal to create a colorful shaker card! She used the negative of the Giant Sending Big Hugs die to make the shaker window and backed it with Really Rainbow paper!

The adorable Bubbles of Joy mice are the little things in Christy‘s sweet card design! Those bubbles are amazing!

Jessica cleverly used Peas on Earth as her “little things”! It’s never too early to start making holiday cards and you probably have lots of Lawn Fawn sets with just the right little images!

Joyce had a similar idea to Caly’s! Great, creative minds thinking alike! The industrious ants from Crazy Antics look adorable scurrying across the Giant Sending Big Hugs die cut!

Karin‘s cheery card features Car Critters and Village Heroes! Her beautiful clean and simple design has just a hint of inking in the background to ground the images.

I love this clever card by Samantha! The Tiny Fairy Tale characters are great for this challenge! And the little sand castle from Life is Good is sized perfectly for a little fairy kingdom! Samantha used a Stitched Scalloped Square Frame and the long cloud from Unicorn Picnic to add magic to her design!

Samantha M. created a perfectly punny custom greeting to go with all her little things with shells! She combined Fintastic Friends, You Are Sublime and Ocean Shell-fie with the Stitched Wave Borders to make an underwater scene! She stenciled bubbles in the background and stamped lots tiny fish from Mermaid for You as well!

Jessica wasn’t the only team member looking ahead to some holiday fun! Jenn’s jack o’lantern is made with Outside In Stitched Pumpkin. She filled the background with fun little things from Plan on It: Holidays and more of our Halloween sets!

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 102 – All Things Ocean tomorrow!
