The Cutest Rainy Day with Samantha

Samantha‘s Rub-A-Dub-Dub ducks are enjoying the cutest rainy day! It’s adorable inspiration for our What’s the Weather challenge!

Samantha created a sweet card featuring the Rub-A-Dub-Dub ducks playing in a puddle on a rainy day! I love that they are using the Dandy Day dandelion flowers as umbrellas, that is just too cute!

To set the scene she started with Rainy Backdrop: Landscape and Mushroom Border. Then she added clouds and grass from Meadow Backdrop: Portrait and finished with a sweet and scripty Hello Border greeting!

Thank you for this adorable inspiration today, Samantha!

The What’s the Weather challenge will be open until Sunday, February 14 at 11:59PM ET so you still have time to get your weather-themed entries added to the challenge gallery. We can’t wait to see what you create!


Wishing you a wonderful weekend! Hope it’s filled with lots of crafty fun!

Christy’s Squirrely Acorn House!

Hey friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our Awesome Autumn challenge. I am so flipping excited about the Let’s Go Nuts squirrels, I just had to use them again! This time I’m also featuring Acorn House, which was so much fun to play with.

I started by stamping my images in Jet Black ink and coloring them with Copic markers. Then I trimmed them out with the matching dies and set them aside.

I pulled out a whole bunch of gorgeous shades of Lawn Fawn cardstock and began die-cutting the elements for my Acorn House. I used Kraft for the base, and dark brown Woodgrain for the roof, door, and window frame. The light behind the window, the keyhole, and some leaves were cut from Sticky Note, and then a bunch more leaves were cut from Chili Pepper, Fake Tan, and Raspberry.

I used Noble Fir for the vines, and also for my grasses, which I die-cut with the grass from Mushroom Border. I cut the steps out of Narwhal, and then traced the door frame on that as well, so I could trim out a piece to fit behind.

I stamped a sentiment on the bottom grass panel in Noble Fir ink

For my card base, I cut down and folded a piece of Mermaid cardstock, then I added one grassy border flat to the card, and popped up the front one with foam tape.

Next I built my little house, adding a squirrel inside the door, sleeping on the job of guarding the nuts! Then I decorated the house with vines and leaves and added my sweet little squirrels to complete the scene. As a final touch, I added a few stamped grasses from Mom + Me in Noble Fir ink.

If you’d like to see how this card came together, you can check out in the video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty. 

We are loving the projects we’ve been seeing come in for our Awesome Autumn challenge! If you haven’t had a chance to join us yet, you still have time to play along; this challenge is open until Sunday, October 4th at 11:59PM ET.


We hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by!
