Samantha’s Cute “Snail Mail” Scene

We hope you enjoy today’s inspiration and join us for the Create a Scene challenge! We can’t wait to see your creativity! This challenge will be open until Sunday, May 1 at 11:59PM ET. 

Samantha‘s brilliant design shows that a fabulous scene doesn’t have to fill the card!

Samantha masked off a section at the top of the card to do some ink blending and define the scene. She used Distress Oxide ink in Picked Raspberry, Abandoned Coral and Tattered Rose add some inky splatters as well.

She colored the grass and snails from Gleeful Gardens and the cute little clouds from Smooth Sailing with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers before fussy cutting and arranging them on the card.

Samantha white embossing the cute sentiment from Gleeful Gardens on Black Licorice cardstock. Then she fussy cut it out before popping it up on foam squares along with another cute little snail!

Thanks so much Samantha, this card is so sweet!

Jessica’s Sunny Spring Card

Our current Happy Spring challenge will be open until this Sunday, April 18th at 11:59PM ET. We are looking forward to seeing your projects inspired by the challenge board!

Good morning!  Jess here with a card for our current challenge!  I created a card using the challenge photos for inspiration!

To start I blended Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink onto an A2 panel. I added a little Dried Marigold at the bottom in a curve to resemble the sun. Then I die-cut the Sunrise Backdrop die and blended more Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink over the sun and halfway up the rays. I made sure you could see the Dried Marigold Distress Oxide ink on the back panel and then layered them together with foam mounting tape.

Next, I stamped the bird, snail, grass, and flowers from Gleeful Gardens and Fairy Friends and colored them with Copic markers before die-cutting them with the coordinating dies. I stamped the scripty part of the sentiment from Happy, Happy, Happy and die-cut it with the outline die.  Then I stamped the other part of the sentiment from Tree Before N’ Afters and trimmed it down to a thin label. I die-cut the grass from Simply Grassy Hillsides and blended Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink over it. I adhered the grass to my sunny panel and then added the rest of the images to create my scene!  Finally, I added the sentiment and a few white gel pen accents to finish the card!

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 an amazing weekend! –Jess
