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

Jessica created a “celebration in a card”! She used Stitched Fireworks with a splash of color which looks amazing on the black background! For the greeting she combined Oliver’s Stitched ABCs with a Happy Happy Happy coordinating die. The glittery gold cardstock makes this design so special!

Christy was inspired by the colorful ornaments to create a sweet and joyful woodland holiday scene! Those cute squirrels are found in Cheery Christmas along with the ornaments. She combined branches from A Bug Deal with pine boughs and snow from Frosty Fairy Friends! The beautiful sentiment is from Joy to the Woods!

Joyce is welcoming the new year with a super “hoppy” card! She started by stenciling the confetti in the background, then she added those adorable frogs from Toadally Awesome and Don’t Worry, Be Hoppy! For the greeting she combined Oliver’s Stitched ABCs with Happy Happy Happy Add-On!

Samantha made the most gorgeous set of cards featuring alcohol inked backgrounds! She added Snowflake Background Stenciled with White Stencil Paste over those beautiful pops of color!

As a finishing touch, Samantha embossed the sentiment from Snowy Backdrops onto a vellum Fancy Wavy Banner!

It’s a party on Samantha‘s awesome card! A Penguin Party that is! She used the happy colors from the inspiration photo to add lots of cheer to her Happy New Year card! I love how she layered black cardstock with the sparkle cardstock using Peppermint Stripe Backdrop!

Caly captured the pretty bokeh lights in the inspiration board using the Let’s Bokeh set with Yeti ink! The beautifully inked background shines behind the bubbly bokeh pattern! She gold embossed the sentiment on black cardstock to create a dramatic and festive greeting!

Franci‘s Cheery Deer card is so sweet! It sends Happy New Year wishes with Merry Messages in a clean and simple design!

Karin‘s gorgeous design is sure to start the new year off right! The gold splashes on the black background recreate the sparklers in the inspiration board! The sentiment is gold embossed on black; it’s from Magic Holiday Messages! The flowers and vines are combined from Happy Hibiscus and Magic Iris Birdhouse Add-On.

Jenn finishes out this festive collection with her joyful design! She combined critters from Beary Happy Holidays, Yeti or Not and Penguin Party to send happy wishes! She paired a greeting from Winter Big Scripty Words and Winter Scripty Sentiments! All of those awesome stars in the background are found in Outside In Stitched Stars and Puffy Star Stackables along with Hearts and Stars Skinny Tag!

I hope you have been inspired by these amazing projects! 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 114 – Card Sketch tomorrow! Now it’s time for you to get creative!

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!
