We are loving the yummy projects filling the Fun with Food gallery! This challenge will be open until Sunday August 1 at 11:59PM ET. We can’t wait to see how you are inspired by this theme!
Hi friends, it’s Samantha! I had so many avocado puns floating around in my head, so I knew I had to make an avocado themed card!
I used the cute avocado and toaster images from Let’s Toast to feature on my card! They were colored in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then fussy cut out. I heat embossed the custom, punny phrase with my all time, long time, favorite stamp set Harold’s ABCs! To add the sentiment I used a banner die cut from Black Licorice Cardstock with the Fancy Wavy Banners! I just LOVE the dimension that banner brings to the card!
For the background, I used the Simple Stripes: Diagonal to die cut out from white cardstock. Then I used Distress Oxide Inks in Blueprint Sketch and Cracked Pistachio on every other stripe! For the other stripes, I used Narwhal ink to add some soft, light gray to the edges! Then I splattered water on top of it all. Those bold stripes are my FAVORITE! I love the different techniques you can do with them, and how they make your images pop!
Thanks so much for sharing your punny card with us today, Samantha! I love it!
Looking forward to being inspired by your Fun with Food challenge entries! Happy Crafting!
Karin has some clever inspiration today for our Awesome Autumn challenge! This challenge will be open until this Sunday, October 4th at 11:59PM ET.
This charming card design continues the theme that Fall is for back to school! Karin create the fun backdrop by die cutting Oliver’s Stitched ABCs right as they come out of the package! She layered this panel with a Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frame over the the card base; all in white cardstock!
She used a Fancy Wavy Banner for the sentiment from Wavy Sayings. Then she added the cute owl from Jump for Joy and some red apples from Tree Before ‘n Afters!
Thank you, Karin for this super cute inspiration!
We hope you will have lots of crafty fun this weekend! Remember, the Awesome Autumn challenge closes this Sunday! We can’t to share the new challenge on Monday!
Janneke has a pair of charming interactive pull tab cards to inspire your Lots of Love challenge crafting!
For the first card, Janneke created a happy scene using the Bugs and Kisses set! She used Let’s Toast Pull Tab Add-On to make the interactive mechanism! She filled out the scene with grassy hills from the Mushroom Border die set, then added the sentiment from Wavy Sayings on a Fancy Wavy Banner! Such a fun card!
Janneke describes how she made it look like the little bug was inside the jar. “I have stamped the jar and cut out the inside. Then I die cut the jar out from an acetate sheet and glued the jar stamp on it. With the pull tab, the bug escapes from the jar and goes to the other bug.” Such a clever idea!
For her second card, Janneke combined Bicycle Built for You with Screen Time to make the cute couple. The box is from Holiday Helpers and the heart “balloons” are from Bugs and Kisses! The sentiment is stamped on a banner from Bannertastic!
I love this sweet interactive card and how Janneke made it look like the heart balloons are flying out the box! She used the video game wires from Screen Time as the balloon tails! That is such a clever idea!
Thank you so much, Janneke! We have loved sharing your amazing creativity!
You have another week to join our Lots of Love challenge. It will be open until Sunday, February 16th.
