Let’s see what our amazing Design Team was inspired to create!

Mimi was inspired by the rainbow image to create a charming sidewalk chalk art design! She used the cute kids from Joy to All and Screen Time for the little artists and she altered the candles from Birthday Before ‘n Afters and the wand from Fairy Friends to make the chalk! And then she used die cuts as stencils to color in the chalk drawings on the watercolor paper “sidewalk”. The greeting is a mix of Henry’s ABCs and Color My World.

Karin was inspired by the Easter eggs to create this beautiful card! She used Eggstra Amazing Easter and Butterfly Kisses to make the scene and then she added the sentiment from Bicycle Built for You!

Franci wishes you a very happy Spring with this adorable design that features A Bug Deal! She used sweet pastel colors inspired by the color board!

The color palette is great for creating adorable Easter cards! Joyce‘s design is so sweet with the cute Tiny Spring Friends arranged on and around the Giant Happy Easter greeting! The two rows of Simple Grassy Hillsides add dimension and fun design to her card!

Christy was inspired by the flowers and colors to create this cheerful scene! She included Garden Before ‘n Afters, Berry Special, A Creature was Stirring and A Bug Deal. She made the scenery with Cloudy Stencil and Grassy Border.

Samantha‘s card is so whimsical and fun! She incorporated the color palette and the flowers along with the adorable Chirpy Chirp Chirp chicks! I love how she added extra detail in the background with Just Stitching Double Rectangles!

Samantha M was inspired by the rainbow image and created a fun twist on the theme! She stamped several rainbows with All the Clouds, coloring each one in a different rainbow color. Such a clever idea! She added the raindrops with Rainy Sky Stencil and Stencil Paste in white.

Catherine was inspired to create an adorable scene! She combined Tiny Spring Friends, Village Shops, and Car Critters in cute scenes in the Peekaboo Backdrop windows! Then she filled in with lots of cute details from Happy Trails, Giant Easter Messages, Coaster Critters, Simply Celebrate Spring and Chirpy Chirp Chirp!

Jenn created a beautiful pair of cards that show us the difference between Distress Oxide Ink Spray and the original Distress Ink Spray! The Distress Oxide sprays have a softer, muted look compared to the bright color of the original sprays. Jenn’s design is so unique; she kept the Rainbow white with glittery detail and added the rainbow color in the background! Then she used Riley’s ABCs to stamp the custom greeting.


We will share more Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 121 – Inspired by a Book, Movie or Song tomorrow! Now it’s time for you to get creative!

Christy’s Glittery Happy New Year Card

Our Happy New Year Inspiration Board Challenge 115 will be open until Sunday, January 2nd at 11:59PM ET. We hope the beautiful photos and theme will inspire you and you will join us! Click HERE to go to the challenge post to enter your project!

Hey friends, it’s Christy with another card for our Inspiration Board Challenge! My first card was inspired by the photo in the lower right corner. This time I wanted to go with the black, silver, and gold tones in some of the other photos.

I started by stamping out my Scent with Love skunks and Joy to All banners with Jet Black Ink. I colored them with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

Then I created a focal panel with some Let it Shine Snowflakes patterned paper and a little bit of Narwhal for the floor. I added my images and a little “disco ball” cut from silver sparkle cardstock from the Holiday pack.

I scored and folded a panel of Black Licorice Cardstock into a standard A2 size card, then adhered some Metallic Silver cardstock which I die cut with the Peppermint Stripes Backdrop. I filled in the small stripes with gold sparkle cardstock.

Then I popped up my focal panel with foam tape, and gold heat embossed a sentiment from Merry Messages onto more Black Licorice cardstock and trimmed it down with an Everyday Sentiment Banner. I finished off the card with some gold sequins and filled in their centers with Stardust Stickles.

If you’d like to see how this card came together, you can check out the video tutorial as part of my Holiday Card Series on my YouTube Channel, Christy Gets Crafty.

If you haven’t yet entered our Happy New Year Inspiration Board Challenge, there is still some time! We can’t wait to see what projects you’ll come up with!

Merry Christmas to all our friends celebrating this weekend!

Let’s see what our amazing Design Team created to inspire us!

Samantha‘s whimsical holiday card features our cute unicorns filling in for Santa’s regular reindeer team! The fun pastel color combo adds to the whimsy! She combined Ho-Ho-Holidays, Sweet Christmas, A Little Sparkle and Unicorn Picnic.

It’s a Penguin Party on Joyce‘s very cool Christmas card! She created this happy scene using Stitched Hillside Backdrop: Landscape!

To create her “purr-fect” Christmas scene, Christy shopped her stash to combine lots of images! Surprisingly, the sentiment is a mix of Spooktacular and Baaah Humbug! She found the cute Santa hat in Baaah Humbug as well. Other sets used for this cheery design are: Flirty Frames, Joy to All, Purrfectly Wicked, Furry and Bright, Holiday Helpers and Cheery Christmas!

Caly‘s beautiful slimline card features an older penguin set, Here We Go A-Waddling! This set of carol singing critters comes with the lamp post! Caly used the Christmas Dreams tree and added pretty stenciled snowflakes in the background!

Karin‘s pretty design demonstrates how to use critters from non-holiday sets to create a festive holiday card! She used the Rub-A-Dub-Dub ducks with holiday images from Ho-Ho-Holidays and Winter Village with a sentiment from Frosty Fairy Friends! She added wonderful detail to her design using Fancy Scalloped Rectangle and some cleverly scored lines.

Samantha‘s charming design shows our Yeti or Not critters decorating the forest trees with lights from Furry and Bright and a shiny star! For the background she stenciled with Snowflake Background Stencils!

Jessica used our Beary Happy Holidays bear to fill in for Santa in this happy scene! She used Forest Backdrop over a beautifully inked background and Giant Merry Christmas as her bold greeting! Santa’s sleigh and reindeer are from Ho-Ho-Holidays!

Franci‘s Toadally Awesome card is another example of adding holiday flair with accessories to otherwise non-holiday critters! She built her little scene on a Watercolor Wishes Rainbow panel adding cute holiday touches with Baaah Humbug, a speech bubble from A Birdie Told Me and the word Christmas from Yeti or Not! I love that the fonts match!

Jenn’s trio of adorable cats star in this festive and fun holiday card! She used Purrfectly Wicked for the cats with Baaah Humbug and Furry and Bright hats and holiday accessories. She stenciled snowflakes in the background and added a glittery Oliver’s Stitched ABCs greeting!

I hope you have been inspired by these amazing projects! We will share more Design Team inspiration for you over the next 3 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 112 – Make the Sentiment the Star tomorrow! Now it’s time for you to get creative!
