The unicorn-costumed trick or treater has found an awesome assortment of treats this year! Mimi put her creative skills to work filling the Berry Special jars with candy from lots of different sets including the tiny ghost and pumpkin from Spooky Village (be sure to check out the supply list below). She combined Stadium Seating and Window Frame to create the backdrop then she set about add all the Halloween fun!

She filled the Apple-solutely Awesome baskets with candy from Costume Party and Purrfectly Wicked Add-On. Then she created the amazing gumball machine using a pot from Garden Before ‘n Afters and the small balloon from Really High Five! She fashioned the turnkey using a tiny motif from Just for You. The large jack o’ lantern is found in Happy Howloween!

Thank you so much for sharing with us today, Mimi! This incredibly creative card is so perfect for the Coffee, Tea & Treats challenge!

Christy’s Apple-solutely Awesome Pull-Tab Card

We hope you are having fun with new Change the Scene challenge! There is still one week left of this 3-week challenge. It will be open until Sunday, September 4th at 11:59PM ET.

Hey friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our Change the Scene Challenge! For this one I decided to make a cute, interactive card with an apple picking scene. I combined images from Apple-solutely Awesome, with an extra mouse from Berry Special, and a butterfly and trail from Butterfly Kisses. I stamped all the images in Jet Black ink, colored them with Copic markers, and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

Then I created a background by blending Distress Oxide Inks onto Bristol Smooth Surface Cardstock. I used Salvaged Patina with the Cloudy Stencil for the sky. Then I cut down a second piece with the Grassy Border and blended on Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn. I cut both of these panels down with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables.

For the interactive element, I wanted it to look like one of my mice was popping in and out of the apple bushel. So, I took the track from the Let’s Toast Pull Tab Add-on and cut that out of the sky background, then added the tab behind the mouse and trimmed off any leftover bits that would show. I secured the track in place on the back of the panel with the little hugger piece. I also cut a notch out if the top of the panel and glued a pull tab reinforcer over the top of the pull tab and added a little blue arrow in the center.

I stamped a sentiment on the bottom of the grassy border and popped that up with foam tape to give the mouse room to move freely on it’s track. Then I popped the whole focal panel up with another layer of foam tape onto a Guava card base, making sure to keep the tape away from the track as well.

Finally I added the rest of my images, stamped a butterfly trail in Manatee Ink, stamped on the inside of the card in Chili Pepper ink, and finished with a bit of Stardust Stickles on the butterfly and apples.

If you’d like to watch this card come together, you can check out the video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Thanks so much for this apple-solutely adorable inspiration, Christy!

Mimi’s Fun Lift the Flap Inspiration

We hope you are having fun with new Change the Scene challenge! It is a 3-week challenge that will be open until Sunday, September 4th at 11:59PM ET.

All of the auto specialties, mechanics, tire store and car wash, are really busy in Mimi‘s brilliant lift the flap card! When you open the Small Slimline with Lift the Flaps windows, you get a glimpse of the activity at each business!

Mimi inked a pretty backdrop on the Small Slimline with Lift the Flaps panel before she decorated each flap with a fun car theme! She combined Home for the Holidays cars, Smooth Sailing critters and Village Heroes fire station. She altered the little car to become the tow truck, adding the hook from Booyah and the package strings from Special Delivery Add-On. So clever!

Under the flaps you get a close up inside the tire store, the mechanics shop and the car wash! For this larger view she used the Car Critters car and critters from Berry Special, Scootin’ By and Merry Mice. To create the car wash, Mimi used the rolling pin from Baked with Love and the branch from Frosty Fairy Friends, how clever is that! Check out the supply list below for more images used in clever ways!

Thank you so much for inspiring us with this brilliant Change the Scene card, Mimi!
