Samantha’s Manatee-rific Inspiration

Our new Inspiration Photo challenge is under way and we are looking forward to seeing how this fun image will inspire you! Click HERE for all the details about this challenge that will be open until Sunday, September 18 at 11:59PM ET.

Samantha Mann joins us here today to share a delightful card inspired by the new challenge!

Samantha created a Manatee-rific card featuring the adorable critters! She used alcohol inks to recreate the look of the inspiration photo in the background! Using Zig markers, Samantha gave the manatees, shells and seaweed amazing color!

I love how she used vellum, cut with Stitched Wave Borders to add a layer of dimension to her happy little scene!

Thanks so much for this sweet inspiration, Samantha!

Christy’s Pretty Pink Flamingo Inspiration!

Hey friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our For the Birds Challenge! This time I was totally feeling these sweet feathered friends from Flamingo Together. I combined them with some flora and fauna from Critters in the Jungle and Manatee-rific. All of the images were colored with Copic markers and trimmed out with the matching dies.

For my focal panel, I die cut some Ballet Slippers cardstock with the Stitched Journaling Card die. I stamped my sentiment in a combo of Wild Rose and Black Licorice ink and then embossed two of the Just Stitching Hearts. Then I adhered my images.

For the card base, I used more Ballet Slippers cardstock to make a standard A2 sized card, then I trimmed out some Spring Fling pattered papers with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables so you get that detail on the edge, and also get a little peek of that cardstock showing through. I popped up my focal panel with foam tape and added a little Star Dust Stickles to the flower centers to finish off the card.

I also did some stamping on the inside, which you can check out in the video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty. For now, why not grab those bird stamps and get crafty yourself! There’s still plenty of time to enter our challenge!

The For the Birds challenge will be open until Sunday February 2 at 11:59PM ET. We can’t wait to see what you create!

Happy crafting from your friends at Lawn Fawnatics!
