A Beautiful Bokeh Card with Samantha

Our New Year challenge is underway and today we have Samantha sharing a beautiful card to inspire us! This challenge will be open until Sunday, January 3 at 11:59PM ET.

Samantha combined two images, the beautiful bokeh and bling to create a truly gorgeous card!

Samantha took her color cues from the bling-y sequins image. She ink blended with Distress Oxide inks in Black Soot and Iced Spruce to create the wintry backdrop! Once that background was dry she used Let’s Bokeh to stamp and emboss the circles with clear, pearlescent and clear sparkle embossing powders.

Samantha stamped the trees from Let it Snow on vellum and embossed them for a glossy look. She fussy cut them and attached them to the sparkling background. Then she added the sentiment from Snowy Backdrops.

As a final touch to really bring the wow factor to her card, Samantha sprinkled sequins in gorgeous colors across the card!

Thanks for sharing this gorgeous inspiration today, Samantha!


We will have more inspiration for you on Christmas Day. We hope you all have a wonderful week and for those celebrating Christmas, we wish you the merriest holiday!

Happy Thanksgiving and a Beautiful Card by Samantha!

Sending a Happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating today with family and friends! We are so thankful for our Fawnatics friends and your support and enthusiasm for our challenges! We think you are the best!

Challenge 17 – Color Inspiration runs through Sunday December 3 at 11:59PM ET. We hope you will join us!

Samantha Mann joins us today to share beautiful inspiration for our Color Inspiration Board Challenge! Enjoy!

Samantha’s gorgeous design features our Let it Snow set! She stamped the trees with Distress Oxide inks using the “rock and roll” technique to get a beautiful color mix on the images.
She used regular Distress ink in shades of blue to create this wonderful stenciled watercolor background! The pop of red on the sentiment banner completes the color story!

Thank you so much for sharing your awesome inspiration with us today, Samantha!

You have a little over a week to join us for Challenge 17 – Color Inspiration; we can’t wait to see what you create!
