Samantha has some adorable ocean critter inspiration for us today!

I love making Holiday cards, especially cards with holiday critters! For this card, I used the Christmas Fishes, Furry and Bright and Ho-Ho-Holidays images to create this fun under water Christmas Eve scene!

I colored all of the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brushes and then used the coordinating
dies to die cut them out! I added some details with a white gel pen, and also some chunky glitter
to add to the festiveness!

For the background, I started by ink blending with Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock
Feathers and Salvaged Patina. Then I used the same colors but added it to the same areas with
a paintbrush and some water. Once that was dry, I did more ink blending with the same colors. That process adds to the extra saturation and boldness of the colors! Love it!

The sentiment was heat embossed in white onto Black Licorice Cardstock and then die cut out
with the Fancy Wavy Banners.

Thank you for inspiring us today, Samantha!


Happy crafting! We can’t wait to see your critter creativity!

Samantha’s Penguin Christmas at the Beach

We are looking for fun and festive holiday projects for our Challenge 128 – Christmas in July! Time to get a jump on your holiday crafting and enter the challenge before Sunday, July 17 at 11:59PM ET. We can’t wait to see how this challenge inspires you!

Samantha takes the holiday fun to the beach in a whimsical card featuring Penguin Party and Christmas Fishes!

The penguins are celebrating a festive holiday on the beach! Samantha built this happy scene with Stitched Hillside Backdrop: Landscape and Simple Stitched Wavy Borders. Instead of snowy details she colored the hills, igloo and snowman in sandy colors and replaced the traditional Christmas tree with one made of seaweed from Christmas Fishes. Then she added the sentiment from Joy to the Woods to finish this Christmas in July design!

Thank you for this delightfully whimsical inspiration, Samantha! It’s such a fun idea!
