Strawberry Picking Fun with Karin

It’s the last weekend for Challenge 127 – Summertime Fun! Time to get your summery projects uploaded before Sunday, July 3 at 11:59PM ET. We can’t wait to see what you are working on!

Karin fondly remembers picking ripe, red strawberries with her family in the summertime! She used Berry Special to create her Summertime Fun inspiration!

These little mice look so cute picking strawberries! Maybe they will be making strawberry shortcake with the yummy berries! Karin created a beautifully simple backdrop with some ink blending and white paint splatters. She attached this smaller panel to a Fancy Lattice Backdrop to create a lovely frame. Karin used acetate to make the cardbase light and airy for summer!

Thank you so much Karin for this sweet inspiration!

Samantha’s Sweet Critter Birthday Card

We invite you to join us for our current All Things Birthday Challenge! It will be open until Sunday, March 20th at 11:59PM ET. We can’t wait to see your creative birthday ideas!

Samantha created a birthday card with some super cute critters! She started with a Fancy Lattice Backdrop in white layered over a Speckled Eggshell panel. She added this to a Ballet Slippers panel to create a pretty pastel background.

Next, she stamped, colored and die cut images to create a sweet critter birthday celebration! She combined Birthday Before ‘n Afters, Butterfly Kisses, Really High Five, Dandy Day and Scootin’ By. For the greeting she stamped a birthday message from Wavy Sayings on a Simple Wavy Banner.

Thank you so much for inspiring us today, Samantha! This card is so adorable!

Happy crafting friends! We can’t wait to see your All Things Birthday creativity!
