Sending Sunshine with Jessica!

Good morning! Jess here with a card for our current sketch challenge! I decided to be a little more abstract with the challenge this time…here’s what I created! 😉

To start I die-cut the Stitched Trails hearts onto a piece of Moonstone cardstock to represent the hearts in the sketch. Then I die-cut the sun from Spring Showers with Sunflower cardstock and blended a little Spiced Marmalade Distress oxide ink onto the edges for the large circle of the sketch. I also die-cut the Puffy Cloud Border and Stitched Hillside Border from white cardstock.

Next I die-cut the Forest Border from white cardstock and blended Cracked Pistachio and Evergreen Bough Distress oxide ink over it. Then I die-cut the Little Town Border from Raspberry cardstock and adhered tiny squares of Fog cardstock behind the houses for the windows and doors. The hills, houses, forest, and clouds represent the lines of the sketch. Next I stamped the sentiment from Rain or Shine Before ‘n Afters onto black cardstock and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. I adhered the layers together and tucked the sun behind the forest. Finally I adhered the sentiment with foam mounting tape to finish the card.

And that’s it! You have two more weeks to get crafty and I can’t wait to see how the sketch inspires you! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous week!


Karin’s Winter Skies Reveal Wheel Card

Karin is here with inspiration for the last weekend of our Wonderful Winter challenge! We hope you will find time to check out this challenge and join us by Sunday, January 6th at 11:59PM ET.

Karin create this lovely and serene scene for her Reveal Wheel card using the Winter Skies fox and raccoon pair! She made the background by layering Forest Border with a Stitched Hillside Border on top of some frosty blue ink blending! For the sentiment which combines Reveal Wheel Sentiments and Reveal Wheel Holiday Sentiments she used the heart-shaped window found in the Reveal Wheel Square Add-On!

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful inspiration with us today, Karin!

We are excited to have another talented Guest Designer join us for this challenge! Please welcome Ashley Dearie, you know her as 509inspired on Instagram! She has been one of our Featured Fawnatics more than once for making wonderfully clever cards based around fun themes! Thank you for joining us today, Ashley, we are so happy to have you!!

Ashley was inspired by the color palette and the lovely wintry image to to send warm wishes from this cute crew in the arctic! She used lots of fun sets including Sealed with a Kiss, Critters in the Arctic, Critters in the Snow and Beary Happy Holidays! She combined bits of the costumed kids from Easter Party with the donut from Donut Worry to look like this arctic-dwelling cutie is bundled up for the cold!

Ashley used just the lake die cut from the Dad+Me coordinating die set to cut out the water shape and filled it with inked Ocean Wave Borders! So clever!

Let’s see how our amazing Design Team was inspired for this challenge!

Samantha M took snow angels to a new level of fun with these colorful and cute Yeti Set Go critters! This card is just so clever and so perfect for the Wonderful Winter theme!

One of the Yeti cuties is on an Action Wobbler to add even more fun with an interactive element!

Karin‘s Beary Happy Holidays polar bear family has done some successful ice fishing and are sending a sweet greeting to their friends! This frosty scene is so full of charm and warmth!

Jessica‘s beautiful pastel paradise uses all the colors of the challenge palette! Her skating bear is found in Beary Happy Holidays along with the pretty greeting. The Forest Border provides a snowy tree line in the background! I love how Jessica added the heart from Stitched Trails, this skating bear has some talent!

I just love the sweetness of Christy‘s cute card that combines Thanks a Latte and Oh Snap! The Zig Zag Rectangle panel and the Gotta Have Gingham background give her card a fun homespun look!

Joyce created a fun Wonderful Winter Village Shops scene with cute little Coaster Critters enjoying the small town charm! She used Stitched Hillside Backdrop: Landscape to create her fun scene!

Samantha C borrowed scene builder stamps from Critters in the Arctic and Critters in the Snow to create a frosty winter playground for the happy frogs from Toadally Awesome! I love how she used Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot Backdrop to look like a snowy sky!

Franci‘s Say What? Gift Tags are so fun and magical! I love how she filled the shaker windows with Chunky Glitter for lots of sparkle and shine!

Jenn combined some favorite oldies with new favorites to create an adorable friendship card! Making Frosty Friends snow-people with a custom sentiment made with Quinn’s ABCs work nicely with the new Snowfall Backdrop and a Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frame!

We will have Design Team inspiration for you over the next 3 weeks and of course we’ll share our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 42 tomorrow!
