Summertime Fun Inspiration from the Challenge Gallery!

We hope you enjoy today’s inspiration! We are looking forward to seeing your Summertime Fun creativity! The Challenge 127 – Summertime Fun is a 2-week challenge and will be open until Sunday, July 3 at 11:59PM ET.

Today we are shining the spotlight on a couple of cards in the Summertime Fun challenge gallery! They are each by recent Featured Fawnatics and we know they will inspire your creativity!

This fun card is Bianca‘s version of an amusement park near her home! She combined lots of sets to create a whimsical Summertime Fun scene!
She used: Coaster Critters, Happy Hugs, Life is Good, Ahoy Matey, Spooky Village, Happy Village, Let’s Play, Meow You Doin?

Kathrin put her amazing coloring skills to work creating this design! I’m sure, like me, some your best summer memories involve a campfire on the beach!
She used: Super Star, Crazy Antics, Bubbles of Joy, You Autumn Know, S’more the Merrier, Tropical Backdrop, Palm Tree Border

Big thanks to both Bianca and Kathrin for sharing their fantastic card projects with us. We are so happy that you played along with the Summertime Fun challenge!

Jessica’s Colorful Coaster Critters Inspiration!

Good morning!  Jess here with a card for our current challenge: Summertime Fun!  One of my favorite summer pastimes is going to amusement parks so I used that as inspiration for today’s card!

To start I tore the middle of a piece of copy paper into a loose circle shape and temporarily adhered it to a panel of Strathmore Bristol smooth cardstock.  Then I lightly blended distress inks over the panel to create a faux watercolor look.  I used picked raspberry, festive berries, dried marigold, squeezed lemonade, twisted citron, peacock feathers, blueprint sketch, and wilted violet.  Once I was done, I blended the edges of another panel of cardstock with the same inks.

Then I stamped images from Coaster Critters onto white cardstock and colored them with Copic markers before die-cutting them with the coordinating dies.  I also stamped and heat-embossed a sentiment from Coaster Critters onto Black Licorice cardstock with white embossing powder.  I adhered my roller coaster and critters onto my background and added my sentiment.  I trimmed the panel down to 3 3/4” by 5” and matted it onto my rainbow panel which was cut to 3 7/8” by 5 1/8”.  Finally, I adhered that to a white card base and added a few white gel pen accents to finish the card!

And that’s it!  You one more weekend to get crafty and I can’t wait to see your version of summertime fun! 
Thanks so much for stopping by and have an amazing weekend!

Thanks so much for this beautiful inspiration, Jessica!
