A Spooky Card with Samantha!

We hope you will join us over at the Lawn Fawn blog for the start of October Inspiration Week! Today is the Big Giveaway Post, with up to 6 chances to enter to win! Click HERE!

Happy Friday! Samantha here with a spooky card that is inspired by current Inspiration Board challenge. I LOVED the inspiration board so much, because the colors and the Halloween image are so much fun.

I used Bayou Backdrop to create a Halloween scene that takes place in a haunted bayou. Ghosts from Happy Haunting are peaking out behind the glittery vines and frogs from Toadally Awesome are floating on the lily pads. I turned the frogs into witches by accessorizing them with hats from Hats Off to You and Holiday Party Animal. They needed a cauldron for their spooky swamp potions, so I used the fish bowl from the Keep On Swimming stamp set. Some of the  bubbles from the Rub-A-Dub-Dub stamp set fit perfectly in my cauldron!

You still have plenty of time to enter this amazing Inspiration Board challenge. The colors are so much fun to work with and Halloween is such a fun holiday to create projects for. The challenge is open until Sunday October 20 at 11:59PM ET, and we really look forward to seeing what you create! I hope you have a wonderful day! 


Thanks for stopping by today!
We hope you have an awesome, craft-filled weekend!

Samantha Remakes Her Dramatic Night Sky Card!

Our CASE Yourself challenge continues through Sunday March 31! We are so impressed with the entries in the gallery so far, wow! Our Design Team inspiration today comes from Samantha M, who remade her awesome night sky that she made for her blog collaboration back in October. For the original card, which you can see HERE,she used Happy Haunting and Monster Mash! The updated version features Out of This World and a surprise on the inside!

The background for each card starts with black gesso painted randomly on the card base! Then some bright white stenciled stars fill the night sky! In the original Samantha filled the scene with a rainbow of colorful Monster Mash critters and the Happy Haunting house!

For the new version, she again used bright and happy rainbow colors on the Out of This World planets and sun! She started her greeting on the front of the card…

and finished it on the inside with a fun pop-up element courtesy of the Mini Pop-Up Box and some more colorful planets! I love how she continued the dramatic black sky and stars on the inside!

Thank you so much, Samantha, for inspiring us today!

Now it’s your turn to get creative and be inspired by one of your previous cards or crafty projects! Our CASE Yourself challenge will be open until Sunday March 31 at 11:59PM ET. We can’t wait to see how you will be inspired!
