Beautiful Swan Soirée Cards with Karin!

Karin brings us some gorgeous inspiration for the Spectacular Skies challenge using Swan Soirée! This is the last weekend for this challenge, it will close at 11:59PM ET on Sunday, May 3!

This lovely design is perfect for weddings! Karin ink blended a beautiful background, then she added the Cattails Border to separate the sky from the pond. I love how she used the water from Swan Soirée to add a shadow under the swans!

Karin switched up this card by using Bayou Backdrop to frame the scene in dramatic black! She blended the colors in the background to create a beautiful glow around the swans!

Thank you so much for this gorgeous Spectacular Skies inspiration, Karin!

Supplies:

Wishing you all happy crafting this weekend!

Now let’s see where our designers found their inspiration!

Karin was inspired by the cute bear in the new set, Really High Five to create this adorable nod to Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day! She also used Cloudy Stencils and A Bug Deal!

Mermaid for You, Ahoy Matey, Fintastic Friends and Critter Concert helped Samantha recreate a favorite scene from The Little Mermaid!

Joyce‘s adorable card depicts a scene from Kelly Marie’s favorite movie musical, Singing in the Rain! She used the boy from Bicycle Built for You, the street lamp from Here We Go A-Waddling, an umbrella from Plus One and the puddle is the lake from Dad + Me! So much creativity!

Christy was inspired by the classic story of The Ugly Duckling to use our new Swan Soirée set! She combined the swans with the little duck family from Rub-A-Dub-Dub! She also used elements from Toadally Awesome to help set the scene!

Samantha was inspired by the movie Up to create this happy scene! I love how used the Gnome Sweet Gnome flamingo as a stand in for Kevin! She used a house from Spooky Village and the coordinating dies from Really High Five to die cut all the colorful balloons!

Caly used Cole’s ABCs letters to title this adorable Little Mermaid inspired scene! She used Stitched Hillside Borders to create the underwater look! For characters she assembled the usual suspects from Mermaid for You, Christmas Fishes, Fintastic Friends and Life is Good!

Jessica was inspired by a book by E.B. White The Trumpet of the Swan! Our new Swan Soirée provided the lead character along with Mermaid for You! She set the stage using the new Cattails Border and the trumpet and music notes from Critter Concert! The great sentiment is from Beam Me Up!

Jenn was inspired by an awesome card by Grace to create her version of Winnie the Pooh! She was the lucky recipient of Grace’s adorable card!

Jenn found images from a bunch of sets to repurpose for her sweet scene! Pooh bear is played by the On the Beach bear, Christopher Robin is the boy from Screen Time and Eeyore and Piglet are from Hay There! Owl is from So Owlsome and he’s using the butterfly net from Butterfly Kisses!

Little details were provided by Milk and Cookies (large hunny pot) and Love Letters (small hunny pots)!

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 71 tomorrow!
