Catherine’s Clever Mountain Platform Pop-Up

We hope you enjoy today’s inspiration! We can’t wait to see your beach or mountain creativity! The Challenge 126 – Beach vs Mountain is a 2-week challenge and will be open until Sunday, June 19 at 11:59PM ET. 

Catherine is back with another cute and clever design to inspire you!

Catherine’s brilliant camping and zip-lining scene is so much fun! And adding it to a Platform Pop-Up makes it even more fun! She used Stitched Mountain Borders to create the 3D scenery along with Forest Border. She decorated the base of the Platform Pop-Up using Build-A-Campsite and a Butterfly Kisses bunny.

The Really High Five critters are zipping over the mountains with the help of acetate strips to suspend them. Catherine fashioned the zip-line using the triangle from Critter Concert. She used a line from a limited edition set but you could substitute with the clothesline from Little Bundle. And because “safety first” these wise critters borrowed helmets from Scootin’ By.

Catherine used the tree die from Build-A-Campsite to make a stencil to create scenery on the platform base.

Thanks so much for this totally adorable inspiration, Catherine!

We are so happy to have a very talented Guest Designer joining us for this challenge! Say hello to Ashley Young! Her whimsical scene cards always make us smile and we know she will inspire you too!

Ashley‘s slimline scene features an amusement park filled with happy Tiny Friends! She used Coaster Critters images to set the scene along with the castle from Life is Good! A couple of princesses from Tiny Fairy Tale look right at home!

The “magical” greeting looks amazing with Chunky Glitter adding lots of sparkle! She combined the Finley’s ABCs with a sentiment from Unicorn Picnic!

Now let’s check out some inspiration from our very own experts in “creating scenes”, our wonderful Design Team!

Karin‘s fantastic scene features our cute Wild for You critters enjoying the nightlife with a fruity beverage! She created a silhouette with the Tropical Backdrop and Little Town Border filling the night sky with lots of stars!

Christy gathered some cute critters to do some gardening! She started with Some Bunny for all the gardening images, then added friends from Jump for Joy and Crazy Antics! She filled in the background with Grassy Border. I love how she used the “chip bag” from Crazy Antics to create seed packets, that is just so clever!

Samantha‘s kitchen scene starts with combining the Sprinkled with Joy stove with “cabinets” made using You’re Just My Type! Then she added lots of mice and yummy baked goods from A Creature Was Stirring and Bubbles of Joy! She used Spring Sparkle and Textured Dot Pastel cardstock for the background and finished the card with You’re Sweet Line Border!

Joyce set the scene for her Virtual Friends design with a patterned paper wall and White Woodgrain cardstock floor! She added cute details to her scene using books and the lamp from Den Sweet Den. While the cat from Keep on Swimming is celebrating a birthday with friends online his cute puffer fish is sending birthday greetings from his fish bowl!

Warm weather is coming so Samantha created an amazing beach scene! She filled the sunny sky with some puffy clouds from All the Clouds then she added waves and the sand with layers of Stitched Hillside Borders for the On the Beach fox and a rainbow colored umbrella!

Sometimes an amazing scene doesn’t need lots of scene building dies! Franci assembled whimsical images from Fox Costumes Before ‘n Afters with Baked with Love and Unicorn Picnic for maximum cuteness in her clean and simple style!

Jessica used Puffy Cloud Backdrop: Portrait to build this happy scene! The lovely pastel colors of the clouds are carried throughout the Bubbles of Joy bubbles and Scripty Bubble Sentiments! She added a sentiment from Thanks a Bushel as a finish for her adorable thank you card!

Caly stenciled pretty clouds using the Cloudy Stencil and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink. Then she tinted the hills of the Stitched Hillside Backdrop: Landscape with Mowed Lawn. This sweet scene comes together with images from Butterfly Kisses and Butterfly Kisses Flip-Flop!

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 98 – Happy Spring tomorrow!

Franci’s Clean and Simple Butterfly Kisses Card

Our current Happy Spring challenge will be open until Sunday, April 18th at 11:59PM ET. We are looking forward to seeing your projects inspired by the challenge board!

Franci shares a totally adorable Butterfly Kisses card inspired by the sweet colored eggs in the inspiration board.

Franci’s clean and simple style is perfect for this happy Spring card! She used the pastel shades from the inspiration board to color the Butterfly Kisses images keeping the colors soft and sweet. I think it’s so cute how she arranged the little scene on the card with foam squares and some pretty crystal clear sequins.

Thank you so much for sharing with us today, Franci! Your card is absolutely adorable!
