Laura’s Beautiful Fall Slimline Card

Our amazing Guest Designer, Laura Franzoni is back today to share a gorgeous slimline card celebrating all things Fall!

Our Awesome Autumn challenge is open for another week, closing on Sunday October 4th at 11:59PM ET.

The cute Car Critters are out for a drive in the countryside enjoying the Autumn landscape! It’s a perfect time to pick up a pumpkin from the squirrels’ pumpkin patch! I love how the pumpkin is tied to the top of the car!

Laura used the Large Slimline with Sliders die set to create the tall panel for her amazing scene! Then she used Stitched Mountain Borders and Simple Stitched Hillside Borders to create the landscape. She added Fall color with the Tree Before ‘n Afters and finished with Oliver’s Stitched ABCs spelling out Fall!

We want to thank Laura for sharing her talent and creativity with us for the Awesome Autumn challenge! Check out her Instagram, you will be inspired!


We hope you have a great week! Happy crafting!

Caly’s Happy Harvest Slimline Card

Hi Friends! This is Caly and I’m happy to be here today to share a fall card! Are you ready for fall? I feel like we were just wishing for summer when COVID-19 began and we’ve been cooped up inside hiding from the heat. We’re continuing the Make the Sentiment the Star Challenge and I hope you’re enjoying the inspiration and that you’ll play along!

For today’s card, I used images from the Happy Harvest and the Pick of the Patch sets. The Happy Harvest set is one of the first sets I’ve ever owned and I think that scarecrow has my heart. I came across the squirrels in the Pick of the Patch set and just had to use them for my scene today.

I stamped and colored my images using Copic markers. After die-cutting them all with the coordinating dies, I set them aside to work on my background.

Copic colors used:
Pumpkins: Y15, Y17, Y38, YR07
Face: E51, E55, E93
Birds: C4, C6, C8, Y15, Y17, Y38
Reds: R22, R24, R27, R89
Blues: B93, B95, B97, B99
Greens: [G40, G43, G46], [G03, G09]
Squirrels: E30, E33, E35
Sunflowers: Y11, Y15, E31
Stake: E50, E34, E37

My background is ink-blended with Distress Oxide Inks using Lucky Clover, Twisted Citron, and Mustard Seed. To give the panel some texture, I first sprayed it with water and then splattered it with some watered down Lucky Clover and white paint. When dry, I used the Large Slimline with Sliders die to die-cut the stitched border.

I die-cut my sentiment word and letters using Black Licorice cardstock from the Scripty Happy die and Cole’s ABCs die set. I centered and adhered these down first, then framed my sentiment in with the images I colored.

I hope you enjoyed this card! This challenge runs for 3 weeks! If you decide to play along, be sure to link your projects by Sunday September 6th at 11:59 pm PST! Click HERE to join the challenge!

Thanks for stopping by today! Caly

The Beary Happy Holidays bears are very happy critters in Samantha‘s adorable card design! They are using great teamwork to decorate the tree with golden fish! Happy Holidays Line Border and Mini Snowflakes add lots of sparkle die cut from Pixie Dust cardstock!

Christy‘s coloring gives the cute Snow Cool critters a sweet vintage style! They are a great addition to the Snow Day Remix scene in the background!

Jessica‘s cute aquatic critters are celebrating on the shore and in the water! I love how she combined Christmas Fishes with Here We Go A-Waddling!

Franci‘s cute hedgies are trimming the Christmas Dreams tree wearing cute Santa hats from Baaah Humbug! She combined the greeting from Hedgehugs with colorful Offset Sayings: Christmas!

Samantha‘s whimsical scene brings new meaning to the term “reindeer games”! The Toboggan Together deer have set up their Screen Time games among the Critters in the Forest trees! I would say these are some very happy little holiday critters!
