Samantha Remakes Her Dramatic Night Sky Card!

Our CASE Yourself challenge continues through Sunday March 31! We are so impressed with the entries in the gallery so far, wow! Our Design Team inspiration today comes from Samantha M, who remade her awesome night sky that she made for her blog collaboration back in October. For the original card, which you can see HERE,she used Happy Haunting and Monster Mash! The updated version features Out of This World and a surprise on the inside!

The background for each card starts with black gesso painted randomly on the card base! Then some bright white stenciled stars fill the night sky! In the original Samantha filled the scene with a rainbow of colorful Monster Mash critters and the Happy Haunting house!

For the new version, she again used bright and happy rainbow colors on the Out of This World planets and sun! She started her greeting on the front of the card…

and finished it on the inside with a fun pop-up element courtesy of the Mini Pop-Up Box and some more colorful planets! I love how she continued the dramatic black sky and stars on the inside!

Thank you so much, Samantha, for inspiring us today!

Now it’s your turn to get creative and be inspired by one of your previous cards or crafty projects! Our CASE Yourself challenge will be open until Sunday March 31 at 11:59PM ET. We can’t wait to see how you will be inspired!


Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting!
