Beam Up Some Fun Card Sketch Inspiration with Christy

We have reached the last weekend for our Card Sketch challenge! We will introduce a new challenge on Monday, but there’s still time to get those card sketch projects entered in the current challenge!


Hey friends, it’s Christy here with another card using our current Card Sketch! For this one, I was thinking space, so I pulled out Beam Me Up and Out of this World. I stamped my images with Jet Black Ink and colored them with Copic markers.

For my background, I blended Distress Oxide Inks onto a piece of Bristol Smooth Surface Cardstock. The colors I used were Candied Apple, Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers, and Blueprint Sketch. Then I darkened up the panel with Black Soot.

To give it some stars and shine, I splattered on some Liquid Stardust, followed by Copic Opaque White. Once the panel was dry, I trimmed it down with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables.

I glued that to a Black Licorice card base, then added my images, and finished it off with some Star Dust Stickles and some tiny iridescent stars. If you’d like to see how this card came together, you can find the video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty!

Thank you so much, Christy for sharing adorable inspiration!

We are so happy to have Isha Gupta joining us for this challenge as our Guest Designer! Her beautifully creative designs will definitely inspire you!

Isha‘s clever Magic Iris Camera is a rainbow dream! She combined Hello Sunshine Remix 6×6 papers and added lots of whimsy with Unicorn Picnic, All the Clouds and Starry Backdrops! I love the glittery mane and tail of the unicorn!

Now, let’s see how our Design Team was inspired by our new What’s the Weather? theme!

Karin created a super cool snowy backdrop for the ice-skating bears from Beary Happy Holidays! She spelled out “snow” using Quinn’s ABCs coordinating dies!

From snow to sunshine! Samantha used warm sunny colors to celebrate a summer day at the beach! She combined Elphie Selfie, On the Beach, Critter Concert and Spring Showers to create this cute scene! I love the elephant standing in the puddle from Dad+Me! The perfect sentiment can be found in Hello Sunshine!

Jessica‘s gorgeous Double Slider Surprise design features a beautiful custom sentiment! She used Finley’s ABCs to cut the letters from gold glitter cardstock and gold embossed the rest using Milo’s ABCs. She used Cloudy Stencil to ink up the background.

Her design goes from cloudy to a beautiful rainbow after the rain by combining Spring Showers and Rainbow die sets.

Caly‘s card features a pastel Rainbow on a Puffy Cloud Backdrop! She added the sun from Out of this World, a sentiment from All the Clouds and some Simple Puffy Clouds with a dusting of Chunky Glitter! So pretty!

Franci used the cloudy pattern paper from Hello Sunshine Remix as the backdrop for her sweet Unicorn Picnic scene! The pastel colored unicorns are enjoying yummy treats on their own magical cloud!

Christy‘s clever and creative design features our cute Snow Much Fun and Den Sweet Den baby bears! She inked an awesome background before adding the sentiment using Finley’s ABCs and a Stitched Snowflake!

Joyce‘s sunny design is sure brighten someone’s day! She kept this adorable design simple using just one stamp set, All the Clouds! I love how she stamped the background clouds in Mermaid ink on Mermaid cardstock!

Samantha created a whimsical All the Clouds design! She filled the card with some cute mice (Dandy Day, You’re Just My Type and Really High Five), the sun from Out of this World and sweet smiley umbrellas are from Plus One! Her beautiful inking provides a wonderful backdrop for the white embossed sentiment!

Jenn used a cool watercolor technique to create a “stormy sky” background! Her encouraging sentiment is spelled out using Smitty’s ABCs and Finley’s ABCs! I love that beautiful rainbow of color!

We will share Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 93 Lots of Love tomorrow!

Mayra’s Interactive Toy Story Trio of Cards

Hi Fawnatics friends! Today we are featuring three amazing interactive cards by our talented Guest Designer, Mayra to inspire your creativity!

Mayra created this trio of fabulous cards with a Toy Story theme! She made a Magic Iris card, a shaker/slider card and an adorable pop-up design! I love how Mayra used tiny clouds from Pivot Pop-Up to decorate the Andy’s room scene on the cover of the pop-up card! How cute that she included the desk from You’re Just My Type!

Mayra combined images from lots of different sets to create this amazing western scene! In the background are Stitched Mountain Borders, then Stitched Hillside Borders with some cute cactus from Stuck on You and Year Ten! The sheriff office is created using the Build-A-House die set and the water hole is the Stitched Pond! Check out the supply list below for all the sets used on these cards!

The Magic Iris opens behind the Andy’s room scene to reveal the western sheriff’s office! Mayra included lots of the Toy Story characters including RAWR as Rex, Buzz is the astronaut from Out of This World, Hamm is from Hay There, the little alien from Beam Me Up and of course Woody and Jessie are from Screen Time!

This fun slimline design depicts Pizza Planet! You’re Claw-some is filled with the little aliens. The claw slides back and forth to grab the aliens. The Sweet Smiles gumball machine and How You Bean? mason jar filled with stars are both shakers!

Thank you so much, Mayra! These cards are just amazing and absolutely inspiring! You have been an amazing Guest Designer!

There are still two weeks left for the Interactive Card challenge! It will be open until Sunday, July 5th at 11:59PM ET. We hope you will join us!
