Mimi let her imagination go to fun places as she created this Card Sketch inspiration for you! Her brilliant design features Wood You Be Mine?! She will explain her process in her own words.

I die cut the Meadow backdrop and trimmed off the top grass portion. Then I ink blended with Mowed Lawn and Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxide ink and splattered some Rustic Wilderness ink as well.

I also ink blended a short strip for the top of the card with same colors and blended the edges with Walnut Stain distress oxide ink.

For the circular part of the card sketch, I created a beaver dam using the Fruit Basket die for my frame. I trimmed the middle of the fruit basket die off. Ink blended with Walnut Stain distress ink. I also inked blended a small piece with Walnut Stain distress ink to put behind the dam.

I stamped many branches from Jump for Joy in Doe and Walnut dye ink and cut out using the coordinating dies. Then I layered the branches over the fruit basket frame. I added a few tiny branches with leaves from the new Wood You Be Mine as well.

I die cut 2 pieces of the Large Stitched Rectangle. With one of the rectangle pieces, I trimmed in half and ink blended both with Prize Ribbon distress oxide ink. Next, I heat embossed the waves (from Wood You Be Mine?) with white embossing powder. Then I stamped 2 lakes from Dad + Me with Prize Ribbon distress oxide ink to border the beaver dam.

I wanted the heart that the two beavers were holding to be wood-like, so I masked off the beavers and stamped the Woodgrain Backdrops to the heart. The sentiment was also heat embossed with white embossing powder. As a final touch I accented images with white gel pen.

Thank you so much, Mimi for sharing your cute and clever inspiration with us today!


Be sure to get your Card Sketch challenge entries linked by 11:59PM ET on Sunday! We will be back with another fun challenge theme on Monday December 19th. See you then!

Mimi’s Super Cute Angry Birds Card

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.

Mimi is with us today to inspire you with her super cute and clever card based on Angry Birds!

To create the fun Angry Birds, Mimi used Special Delivery for Red. Then she combined the large balloon from Really High Five with wings, feet and face from Special Delivery to make the black bird, Bomb She colored the Peacock Before ‘n Afters bird yellow to make Chuck.

The pigs are from Hay There and Party Pig (our birthday gift set this year). Mimi added some cute accessories, a hat and glasses from Dad + Me, and the crown from Happy Howloween. The little chicks and eggs are from Eggstra Amazing Easter.

To create the sling shot, Mimi used a pair of branches from A Bug Deal. Everything is so clever!

Thanks so much for sharing with us today, Mimi!

Samantha joins us today with a whimsically adorable Fairy Friends card! She was inspired by the photo to create a magical scene!

This pretty scene starts with a Meadow Backdrop: Portrait in Peacock cardstock. Samantha layered this over a Blue Jay panel which she inked with Salvaged Patina and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide Ink to mimic the look of the inspiration photo.

She added the cute fairies in shades of blue and green, along with stars and grass cut from sparkle cardstock to create this magical scene!

Thank you so much for this delightful inspiration, Samantha!


Have an amazing weekend!
