A Happy Playground with Samantha!

Hi friends, this is the last weekend for our Cards for Kids challenge! I hope you are filling up your collections of birthday and encouragement cards for all the awesome kids in your lives! This challenge will be open until Sunday, May 16th at 11:59PM ET.

Samantha joins us today with the most adorable inspiration!

This is such a joyful scene! Samantha combined a bunch of sets to create this playground filled with happy critters! She used Let’s Play, Let’s Go Nuts, Really High Five, Yay Kites and Super Star! The greeting is from Let’s Go Nuts! The sweet Hello Sunshine Remix paper and happy color combo add lots of whimsy to the design!

You’re Claw-some! A Cute Card by Christy

Cards for Kids is open until September 3 at 11:59 PM ET

Hey friends, it’s Christy here with a fun card featuring You’re Claw-some! Isn’t this set just the most clever? I colored my images with Copic markers, keeping the bears neutral and cool-toned so the bright pink unicorn would really stand out.

I die cut my images with the matching dies, and my patterned papers with the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables. I used the Simple Stitched Hillside Borders to give my Claw machine something to stand on. Then I added my sentiment to an Everyday Sentiment Banner and the card was done. Simple and cute, and perfect for kids!

You still have a week left to enter our Cards for Kids challenge! I can’t wait to see what you create!

Thank you so much, Christy for sharing this adorable card inspiration with us today!
We hope everyone has a wonderful, craft-filled weekend!
