Joyce’s Inspired Acorn House!

There are already lots of great entries for the Halloween and Fall Inspiration challenge! Be sure to check out all the great ideas at the Challenge 86 post and join the fun! This challenge will be open until Sunday October 18th at 11:59PM ET.

Joyce joins us today to share a fun Fall design that was inspired by the Autumn colored leaves in the inspiration photo!

Joyce used the Large Slimline with Sliders to create the background for this super cute long scene! The leaves are changing color and the adorable squirrels from Let’s Go Nuts are busy gathering nuts to store for winter!

Joyce ink blended the background in warm tones and used warm cardstock colors to die cut a bunch of leaves from Acorn House! She also added some inky shadows to the base of the Acorn House.

Thank you so much for sharing this fun inspiration with us today, Joyce!


Happy Crafting, friends!

Caly’s Happy Dandy Day Card

Hello Fawnatics Friends! This is Caly with you today sharing a card made using the Dandy Day set! The current sketch challenge ends on April 19th at 11:59pm PST so there’s a few days left if you’d like to play along!

For the challenge reveal, I was pretty literal with the sketch, but I wanted to create a scene today, so I used Simple Puffy Clouds to replace the circle elements on the sketch.

I stamped and colored my images using Copic markers before adding some glitter glue on the dandelions for some sparkle.
Copic colors used: R20, E41, E42, E43, Y02, Y38, YG06, YG09, E37, E31, C1, C2

For my background, I used a blue panel from the Dandy Day Petite Paper Pack. To give it more interest, I ink-blended the top with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Ink and the grass section with Lucky Clover Distress Oxide Ink using the Grassy Stencil.

Once my background was created, I adhered my clouds and began attaching my dandelions and adorable field mice to complete my scene. The final step was to attach my embossed sentiment at the bottom of my clouds.

I hope you enjoyed this project! Thanks so much for stopping by today! ~Caly
