Samantha’s Spectacular Rainbow-Filled Sky!

Samantha created some really amazing inspiration for our new Spectacular Skies challenge! Be sure to stop by tomorrow for more Featured Fawnatics from the Card Sketch challenge!

Samantha used Distress Inks to watercolor the sky and the rainbow stripes, then she splattered on some white acrylic paint to shine like stars! She added some foil details to the rainbow for even more shine!

Samantha filled in this fantastic scene with layers of Puffy Cloud Borders in white cardstock and vellum. Then she added cute smiling clouds from Plane and Simple and a smiley sun from Out of this World! She finished the card by white embossing the Hello Sunshine greeting on Black Licorice cardstock!

Thanks for sharing with us today, Samantha! This sky is definitely spectacular!

The new Spectacular Skies challenge will be open until Sunday May 3rd at 11:59PM ET. We hope you will join us!


Thanks for stopping by! Happy crafting from your friends at Lawn Fawnatics!

Bringing Back Scrapbook Layouts with Samantha!

Samantha Mann decided to bring back scrapbooking for the Bring it Back challenge!

Samantha’s fun layout is definitely in her signature style! She started with a pretty wash of watercolor in shades of blue and turquoise, then she stamped clouds and hearts from Plane and Simple!

To frame her happy memory she used various papers from Lawn Fawn 6×6 paper pads. And she included a black and white stripe element too!

Samantha also brought back ribbon, in the form of yellow “sunrays” surrounding her photo! Totally clever idea!

We can’t wait to see what you “bring back” for our Bring it Back challenge! Click HERE for all the details and to share your entry!

Happy Crafting! Hope you are having fun searching through your crafty stash for something fun to feature!


Samantha’s Stud Puffin Inspiration

Those adorable little puffins are colored shades of purple with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers; they look so cute and whimsical! The Stitched Mountains were inked with Iced Spruce Distress Oxide ink to give them a velvety soft look!
