Check out the How to Play page for a few guidelines to play along. We want this to be FUN so we’ll keep the rules to just a few!

Let’s see what our amazing Design Team created to inspire us!

Caly‘s card uses Stitched Hillside Pop-Up to create a fun Autumn scene! The Jump for Joy critters are celebrating the arrival of colorful Fall leaves and blue skies! For the background she used Leafy Tree Backdrop: Landscape and Stitched Tree Borders.

Karin‘s spectacular sky is an ink blended beauty! Combining Winter Skies and Over the Mountain Borders she created a simple scene with Scripty Love as the greeting!

Christy‘s adorable card is inspired by the pretty blue sky and colorful leaves in the inspiration photo! She combined Purrfectly Wicked cats with Jump for Joy leaves! The cute little kitten is on a branch from A Bug Deal.

This charming card by Samantha C features Leafy Tree Backdrop: Portrait in glittery Autumn Sparkle cardstock! She stenciled the clouds then added some splatters for texture. The sweet little scene anchored by the Gold Rush cardstock “hill” (found in the Leafy Tree die set) combines Happy Hugs and Let’s Go Nuts! I love the acorns in the speech bubble!

Joyce created an amazing winter sky using Snowflake Background Stencils and Yeti ink on an ink-blended background. The playful scene features our new Penguin Party set!

Jessica focused on the pretty leaves framing the Autumn sky to create a gorgeous thank you card! She layered two Fall Leaves Backdrops, one in a beautiful glittery gold over a Fall Leaves Background Stenciled panel! The Giant Thanks so Much stands out in bold Black Licorice cardstock!

The contrast of the warm colors of the You Autumn Know leaves and dusky colors of the sky is so striking in Samantha‘s design! This card just makes me smile, it’s so happy!

Franci‘s cute Costume Party kids are enjoying trick-or-treating under an amazing purple sky! To complete her Halloween scene she used Spooky Fence Border and a ghost and bats from Happy Haunting!

Jenn finishes out our Spectacular Skies inspiration with the cutest Happy Harvest card! The addition of the cute You Autumn Know mouse is brilliant! I love how she trimmed the Fall Leaves Backdrop to mimic the look of the leaves in the inspiration photo! Her greeting comes from Scripty Autumn Sentiments.

I hope you have been inspired by these amazing projects! We will share more Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 109 – Awesome Autumn tomorrow! Now it’s time for you to get creative!

Jessica’s Happy Halloween Inspiration!

Our Halloween/Fall Inspiration challenge will close this Sunday, October 18th at 11:59PM ET. Happy Crafting Fawnatics Friends!

Good morning!  Jess here with a card for our current Halloween/Fall inspiration challenge!  I used three of the photos as inspiration for my spooky scene today!

To start I blended black soot distress oxide ink over the cloud stencil on a panel of Strathmore Bristol smooth cardstock to create my sky.  I used a blending brush to keep my blending very light.  I die-cut a circle from Strathmore Bristol smooth cardstock and blended squeezed lemonade and mustard seed distress oxide ink over the circle to create my moon.  I splattered it with water and blotted off the excess to give it a little texture.  Next I die-cut the Stitched Tree Borders from Black Licorice cardstock and the Little Town Border from Black Licorice and Sunflower cardstock.  I adhered my moon to the background and then added the tree and town.  Then I inlaid the little windows and doors to recreate the skies and glowing windows from the inspiration photo!

Next I stamped images from Fox Costumes Before ‘n Afters, Costume Party, and Happy Harvest with Versafine and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder.  I colored them with Copic markers and then die-cut them with the coordinating dies.  I added a few accents with a white gel pen and then added them to my scene with a mix of regular adhesive and foam mounting tape.  I finished the card with a sentiment from Costume Party stamped and heat-embossed with white embossing powder!

And that’s it!  You have one more weekend to get crafty and I can’t wait to see what you’ll create!  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend!

Wishing you a happy and crafty weekend!
