Hi Friends, Sam here! One of my favorite movies to watch is the Emperor’s New Groove! I have seen it countless times. One time when my back went out, I even watched it over and over and over while my
husband was at work, and I couldn’t get up to change the DVD player! (I’m aging myself, I know! lol) Despite having seen it so many times, it still cracks me up so hard that I cry! So it seemed perfect to use it as inspiration for the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge!

I used the llama from Llama Tell You and the jar from How You Bean? to create my own potion
bottle! I colored it in with hot pinks and wild purples (the same color as the ‘poison’ in the movie,
of course). I actually used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color all of the images! The
kitten is from Purrfectly Wicked, and she was colored to mimic Yzma (who turns into a cute and
cuddly kitten at the end of the movie)!

I thought the Flippy Flappy die would be perfect to deliver the punchline of the joke! It’s just so
funny! I can hear Yzma saying it so clearly in my head!

I stamped the sentiments with Harold’s ABCs and heat embossed them with white embossing powder onto Black Licorice Cardstock.

Thank you so much for this delightful inspiration, Samantha!


Samantha’s Grape-tastic Birthday Card

We can’t wait to see your Challenge 129 – Fun with Food creativity! This challenge will be open until Sunday, July 31 at 11:59PM ET. Let’s see who has the recipe for crafty fun!

Samantha joins us today with adorable inspiration! Her grape-themed design is so cute with its punny greeting!

This adorable cluster of smiley-faced grapes was stamped using Be Hap-pea! Samantha colored them in shades of purple using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Then she arranged them with leaves and a “stem” from A Bug Deal!

She inked up the background with Distress Oxide inks (see supply list below for the colors she used). Then she finished this adorable birthday card with a punny custom sentiment using Harold’s ABCs.

Thanks so much for this charming inspiration, Samantha!


You still have 5 days to enter the Fun with Food challenge! Who knows, you could be the lucky random winner!

Samantha’s “Friend-ly” Lobsters!

We hope you are having fun with the Inspired by a Book, Movie or Song challenge and we can’t wait to see your creativity! This challenge will be open until Sunday April 3 at 11:59PM ET.

Samantha was inspired by the TV show Friends to create her fun card!

In this “Friends” inspired design, Samantha used an iconic line by Phoebe as the theme of her card! She used the lobster from You Are Sublime, mirror stamping one so they can face each other, and the couch from Window Scene: Winter. The umbrellas are from Beary Rainy Day!

For the title and sentiment, Samantha combined Henry’s ABCs dies and Harold’s ABCs!

Thanks so much for inspiring us with your amazing design, Samantha!
