Franci’s Beach-Inspired Palm Tree Card

We hope you enjoy today’s inspiration! We can’t wait to see your beach or mountain creativity! The Challenge 126 – Beach vs Mountain is a 2-week challenge and will be open until Sunday, June 19 at 11:59PM ET. 

Franci created a simple window card with a whimsical nod to the beach!

Franci used the trees and crab from Palm Trees to fill a cut out circle with a fun beach vibe.

The sentiment, stamped with Minty Fresh ink, is found in the set Life is Good! Clearly Franci thinks life is good at the beach!

Thanks so much for this beautiful inspiration, Franci!

Now let’s check out our Design Team members’ favorite place between beach and mountains!

Catherine makes it clear that the beach is her favorite! Her adorable sandy shaker card features the bears from Snow Much Fun and Den Sweet Den enjoying fun in the sand! She set the scene with Palm Trees and images from Life is Good, On the Beach and Dad + Me. She spelled out SAND with Henry’s ABCs before adding acetate and glittery “sand” to create a fun shaker element!

Looks like Christy loves a relaxing day fishing at a mountain lake! At least the cute Den Sweet Den bears do! She used Stitched Mountain Border and the “lake” from Dad + Me along with images from Toadally Awesome, Swan Soirée and Beary Happy Holidays to create a cute card for dad!

Samantha lets us know that hanging out at the beach is a “swell” way to spend the day! She combined Den Sweet Den with Life is Good and, On the Beach, to make this charming scene. I love how she inked the background to give a hint of sand and surf!

Franci‘s clever Shadow Box Card shows the new Simply Celebrate Critters dogs living their best life in a mountain meadow! She included Shadow Box Card Mountain Add-On and Park Add-On along with the Mushroom Border to create her favorite place!

Joyce brought the Pool Party critters to the beach in this adorable scene! She added some ink blending to create the ocean and sand before letting the critters choose their activity either sunbathing, snorkeling or lounging on a float!

Mimi did some super clever repurposing to create this sweet canoe scene! She turned the grill from Let’s BBQ into the cute little canoe that’s perfect for the Crazy Antics mice. Then she used images from Let’s Roll to build the boat dock, so clever! She created those awesome southwest mountains with rocks from Mermaid for You, Christmas Fishes and Big Thanks.

Samantha set the scene for sandcastle building fun with Ocean Shell-fie, On the Beach and Life is Good. For the inky background she used Distress Oxide ink in Kitsch Flamingo and Prize Ribbon before layering Palm Tree Border on top!

Karin‘s gorgeous card features the “You Goat This” goats in an amazing mountain scene! For the background she used Over the Mountain Borders. But Karin couldn’t decide between the Alps and Aruba. Check out the next card…

For this nod to her favorite island, Karin combined Flamingo Together with Palm Trees dies. I love how she created a little scene for the mini slimline card!

Was there any doubt that Jenn would create a beachy or ocean themed project? She created these two fabulous mini slimline cards using Smooth Sailing. The ocean scenes were made with Ocean Wave Stencils and Stitched Simple Wavy Borders.

We will share more Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 125 – Dies Only tomorrow! Now it’s time for you to create your happy place!

Let’s see how our amazing Design Team was inspired by this new theme!

Joyce assembled this fantastic summery scene using just die sets! She started with Scalloped Treat Box Beach House Add-On to make the little beach cottage, it includes the seagull and driftwood. The cute crab is in part of the Palm Trees set. She set the beachy scene using Stitched Wave Borders and Slimline Stitched Hillside Borders.

Karin‘s Magic Iris card features the beachy images from On the Beach! She filled the iris with a sunny greeting from Magic Messages!

Franci‘s Shadow Box Card is filled with colorful Smooth Sailing images! I love how she added the clouds and seagulls on acetate strips so they appear to be in the “sky”!

Our fun sloths are getting in on the Summertime Fun! Samantha combined Hang in There, I Like Naps and Slow Down and Enjoy with Make Lemonade and a sentiment from Simply Celebrate Summer!

Who doesn’t love toasting marshmallows on the beach! This mermaid and crab borrowed some S’more the Merrier supplies to make the yummy treats! How amazing is Jessica‘s ocean sunset background?!

Caly combined two favorite summertime treats, watermelon and popsicles for her inspiration project! She used I Scream, You Scream to craft up these refreshing pops!


A bunch of our cute mice are enjoying at the beach in Samantha‘s clever design! She ink-blended the shoreline background adding splatters for lots of texture. She added beach accessories from Life is Good, Fintastic Friends and On the Beach for the mice to enjoy! The mice are from Bubbles of Joy, Dandy Day, Super Star, Love Poems and You’re Just My Type! You gotta love the one jumping into the waves!

Christy‘s beautiful Mermaid for You Flip-Flop mermaid is making a splash in her fantastic ink-blended ocean scene!

Jenn framed up her On the Beach scene using Tropical Leaves Backdrop! She added some images from Toucan Do It to drive home the tropical theme!
