Let’s see what our amazing Design Team created to inspire us!

Samantha‘s Out of This World design is so adorable! I love how she used the planets as the circles in the sketch!

Joyce saw bubbles in the sketch and used Bubbles Stencil to ink up the shapes. Then she added some super cute Bubbles of Joy images to finish this adorable card!

Christy‘s card gives a nod to the sketch by turning it on its side and using the lily pads to represent the circular shapes. Her Swan Soirée design makes a lovely wedding card!

Franci totally captured the Card Sketch with this whimsical Bubbles of Joy design! She added a Scripty Bubble Sentiment and some gorgeous bubble coloring to make a memorable card!

Karin interpreted the sketch literally in this abstract beauty! She created organic shapes with watercolor, adding some pretty gold splatters. Then she cut Scripty Love from gold metallic cardstock for the greeting.

Caly was inspired to use Stitched Umbrella and some big raindrops for her beautiful design! With just a little inking in the background, this card is clean & simple fun!

Samantha saw clouds and a unicorn in the Card Sketch! This magical card is a fun way to interpret the sketch!

Jessica got creative with her design and flipped the sketch to the other side! She used stamps from Science of Love to create this super sweet card!

Jenn replaced the circles in the sketch with stars! She used Puffy Star Stackables and Outside In Stitched Stars as well! The colorful watercolor background in so much fun! She included a good luck greeting using Riley’s ABCs and Finley’s ABCs!

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 118 – Clean and Simple tomorrow! Now it’s time for you to get creative!

Let’s see what our amazing Design Team created to inspire us!

Samantha‘s whimsical holiday card features our cute unicorns filling in for Santa’s regular reindeer team! The fun pastel color combo adds to the whimsy! She combined Ho-Ho-Holidays, Sweet Christmas, A Little Sparkle and Unicorn Picnic.

It’s a Penguin Party on Joyce‘s very cool Christmas card! She created this happy scene using Stitched Hillside Backdrop: Landscape!

To create her “purr-fect” Christmas scene, Christy shopped her stash to combine lots of images! Surprisingly, the sentiment is a mix of Spooktacular and Baaah Humbug! She found the cute Santa hat in Baaah Humbug as well. Other sets used for this cheery design are: Flirty Frames, Joy to All, Purrfectly Wicked, Furry and Bright, Holiday Helpers and Cheery Christmas!

Caly‘s beautiful slimline card features an older penguin set, Here We Go A-Waddling! This set of carol singing critters comes with the lamp post! Caly used the Christmas Dreams tree and added pretty stenciled snowflakes in the background!

Karin‘s pretty design demonstrates how to use critters from non-holiday sets to create a festive holiday card! She used the Rub-A-Dub-Dub ducks with holiday images from Ho-Ho-Holidays and Winter Village with a sentiment from Frosty Fairy Friends! She added wonderful detail to her design using Fancy Scalloped Rectangle and some cleverly scored lines.

Samantha‘s charming design shows our Yeti or Not critters decorating the forest trees with lights from Furry and Bright and a shiny star! For the background she stenciled with Snowflake Background Stencils!

Jessica used our Beary Happy Holidays bear to fill in for Santa in this happy scene! She used Forest Backdrop over a beautifully inked background and Giant Merry Christmas as her bold greeting! Santa’s sleigh and reindeer are from Ho-Ho-Holidays!

Franci‘s Toadally Awesome card is another example of adding holiday flair with accessories to otherwise non-holiday critters! She built her little scene on a Watercolor Wishes Rainbow panel adding cute holiday touches with Baaah Humbug, a speech bubble from A Birdie Told Me and the word Christmas from Yeti or Not! I love that the fonts match!

Jenn’s trio of adorable cats star in this festive and fun holiday card! She used Purrfectly Wicked for the cats with Baaah Humbug and Furry and Bright hats and holiday accessories. She stenciled snowflakes in the background and added a glittery Oliver’s Stitched ABCs greeting!

I hope you have been inspired by these amazing projects! We will share more Design Team inspiration for you over the next 3 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 112 – Make the Sentiment the Star tomorrow! Now it’s time for you to get creative!

Caly’s Cute Unicorn Card

Hi, Friends! It’s Caly with you today, sharing inspiration for the current Sketch Challenge!  This challenge runs through February 28 at 11:59PM ET. I hope my card gives you some ideas to participate!

Sketches are up for interpretation – although sometimes, I can get quite literal with it (which is what I did for my project on Monday’s post when the challenge started.  For this card, I decided to change it up and swap out the hearts from the sketch for images that are a bit more fun.

I used images from the Unicorn Picnic, All the Clouds, and A Little Sparkle sets to create my card today.  I stamped and colored using Copic markers.

Mane: [RV10, RV13, RV17], [Y11, Y15, Y38, E31], [BG11, BG34]
Clouds:  B0000, B00
Body:  W0, W2, W4
Hooves:  W7
Blush:  R30

My background is die-cut using the Outside In Stitched Rectangles using a piece of blue patterned paper from the Watercolor Wishes Petite Paper Pack.  Before attaching my images, to the card panel, I first adhered the unicorn to the clouds and added some Prisma Glitter, then Chunky Glitter to bling up my clouds.

I stamped my sentiment on the large cloud and embossed a part of it over black cardstock before fussy cutting around the scripted sentiment.  I then attached the images with foam adhesive to give it all lots of dimension and finished by embellishing with some iridescent jewels.

I hope you enjoyed this project!  Again, you’ve got until February 28 at 11:59PM ET to participate and we hope you’ll play along!  Thanks so much for stopping by today! ~Caly

Happy Crafting friends!
