We have a super sweet and talented Guest Designer joining us for this challenge! Help us welcome, Tammy Stark! She shares her amazing creativity on Instagram as paperprettyboutique!

Tammy created a super charming card with a trio of Tiny Gift Box Cat Add-On kitties and their fishy friends! Each fishbowl is a shaker element made with a Stitched Circle Frame and strip of cardstock to make the lip of the bowl. So creative! Tammy filled the fishbowls with cute critters from Fintastic Friends along with tiny seed beads. The sweet message in a speech bubble is from Say What? Pets!

Now let’s check out what our awesome Design Team has created to inspire you!

Jessica‘s amazing alcohol inked background could not be more beautiful! She used the Sunray Backdrop, die cut from gold glitter cardstock as the see-through element. I love the silhouette Palm Tree Border and glittery Scripty Hello!

The cuteness here is off the charts! Samantha die cut the Stitched Gift Card Pocket from acetate then slipped this adorable Lovable Legends card inside! To create the look of Loch Ness, she added a vellum layer cut with a Stitched Wavy Border and a piece of the Bayou Backdrop.

Franci crafted an adorable Keep on Swimming card with sweet pastel colors! She turned the little fishbowl into the shaker element using the Reveal Wheel Keep on Swimming Add-On. She filled the fishbowl with Chunky and Prisma glitter and sealed it in with acetate!

My age is really showing, but when I saw Christy‘s gorgeous card I started singing, “Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream…”! This dreamy design uses a layer of vellum for the clouds! The Sandman is our cute gnome, his net is from Butterfly Kisses and the teddy bear is from Holiday Helpers!

Samantha‘s Shadow Box Card fits the challenge theme with its 3D scene of Wild for You and Critters in the Jungle images! Scroll down to see how she stamped and colored the outside of this amazing design!

Joyce created a fun RAWRSOME Scalloped Treat Box filled with candy! Her see-through element is a little window in the side covered with acetate so you can see the treats inside! So clever!

Karin‘s gorgeous card has an acetate card base layered with a Fancy Lattice Backdrop! This sweet birthday card features the cute penguin from Toboggan Together!

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 58 tomorrow!

We are so happy to welcome Mindy Baxter as our Guest Designer for this challenge! We know you will love her happy style and her amazing Copic coloring skills! You can find Mindy at her blog: My Creative Scoop and on Instagram!

Mindy’s adorable pair of cards feature the cute little critters from Smooth Sailing frolicking among the Puffy Cloud Borders! She added sweet color with ink blended pastel stripes and die cut greetings using Scripty Friends and Scripty Hello! You can find a video tutorial for these cards at Mindy’s YouTube channel.

Now let’s see how the Design Team was inspired by the Little Things theme!

Jessica‘s card is so sweet! She used little images from So Smooth and Cutie Pie! Her “basket” is strips of Knock on Wood paper woven together!

How fun and summery is Samantha‘s Goodie Bag? She stamped the little ants from Happy Summer on the kraft bag and decorated it with little images from So Smooth, Make Lemonade and My Silly Valentine!

Christy used the little images in Smooth Sailing to create a beautiful ocean scene with the help of Stitched Simple Wavy Borders, Rub-A-Dub-Dub, A Birdie Told Me and Mermaid for You!

Karin‘s beautiful mini card used the tiny flowers from Critters in the ‘Burbs paired with greenery from Spring Sprig on a Lacy Heart Stackable! The sentiment is from Bicycle Built for You!

Grace created a “cheesy” birthday card and gift box set! The little mice are from Wild for You and Elphie Selfie and the candle is found in Year Nine! The cute wedge of cheese is from our retired set Best Pun Ever but the cheese in Thankful Mice will fit here perfectly!

I love how the candle on the cheese matches the rainbow colored candle on the card! To make the cheesy holes in the Cake Slice Box, Grace die cut circles using the coordinating dies from Out of this World then backed them with yellow vellum, so clever!

Samantha M used alcohol ink on clear Yupo paper to make Puffy Cloud Borders waves for the Smooth Sailing sailboats and critters! This is such a beautiful and creative card!

Joyce used all the little images from On the Beach and a fun color palette on her card! She stamped her sentiment on layered Speech Bubbles die cut from Apricot and Narwhal cardstock.

These adorable little fish from Keep on Swimming are the stars of Franci‘s sweet and simple card! She finished her delightful card with Scripty Hello, a design with scored lines and inky splatters!

Jenn stamped the tiny images from Plan on It: Vacation to make a fun background for her sunny little card! The little palm trees from Palm Tree Border are featured in the pretty little scene! Even the greeting is the delicate little Hello Border!

We will share Design Team inspiration for you over the next 3 weeks and we’ll share our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 56 tomorrow!

Jessica’s Dreamy Unicorn Card!

Good morning! Jess here with a card for our current Pet Love challenge! I decided to think back to my childhood and my dream pet…so here’s what I created! 😉

To start I did a little ink smooshing to create my pastel sky. I smooshed tumbled glass, shaded lilac, and salty ocean Distress Oxide inks onto a piece of acetate, spritzed them with water and then pressed the acetate to a piece of watercolor paper. I held the acetate in place for a few seconds and then lifted it off carefully. I let the ink dry and then spritzed it with iridescent spray for a little extra sparkle. Then I die-cut the Puffy Cloud Border from white cardstock and vellum. I adhered them to the watercolor panel with ATG and vellum adhesive.

Next I stamped the adorable unicorn from Critters Ever After onto white cardstock and colored her with Copic markers before die-cutting her with the coordinating die. I also stamped the sentiment onto black cardstock and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder before trimming it down to a thin label. I tucked my unicorn into between the clouds and adhered the sentiment with foam mounting tape. Then I took a cheap paintbrush and brushed a little liquid glue over some of the cloud tops and sprinkled them with Chunky and Prisma Glitter. I tapped off the excess and let it dry. Finally I added a trio of iridescent sequins to finish the card!

And that’s it! You have one more weekend to get crafty and I can’t wait to see how pets inspire you! Thanks so much for stopping by and have an amazing day!
Jess

The Pet Love challenge ends this Sunday, May 19th at 11:59PM ET. We hope you will join us! Happy Crafting!
