For this challenge we have invited a very talented cardmaker to join us as our Guest Designer! Please welcome Kara Pogreba to the Lawn Fawnatics blog! She has been inspiring us for quite a while now and we are so impressed with her amazing designs! You can find her on Instagram as @karalynne88 and at her blog, Bright Hope Creations!

Kara‘s sky is seriously spectacular! She created a pull-tab card using the airplane and banner from Simply Celebrate Spring! Those puffy clouds look a lot like some Lawn Fawn critters! Kara stamped the images in light blue ink and did some incredible no-line coloring!

The Let’s Toast Pull-Tab Add-On allows the cute little plane to cross the sky with a fun sentiment from Elphie Selfie! See if you can spot which sets these cloud critters are from and leave us a comment below!

Now let’s check out the inspiration from our amazing Design Team!

Jessica‘s amazing night sky is so perfect for her tall slimline card design! She added an Upon a Star fox and sentiment and a pretty Forest Border silhouette!

Christy created a whimsical little scene with Butterfly Kisses! What is more spectacular that a sky filled with butterflies!

Franci‘s fabulous space themed sky is filled with Out of this World planets and a cute little astronaut! I love this view through the spaceship window!

Who says the sky has to be blue! Joyce‘s sky is filled with happy color and happy birds! The little bunny from Coaster Critters looks adorable flying the plane from Plane and Simple!

Grace took the Butterfly Kisses critters out of the meadow and placed them among the clouds in this Center Picture Window Card design!

These amazing clouds and beautiful rainbow are perfect in Samantha‘s sunny yellow sky! The adorable little Winter Unicorn (without her winter scarf) looks right at home in the dreamy backdrop!

The Winter Skies bear couple are enjoying the dramatic sky on Karin‘s beautiful Reveal Wheel card! I love the splatters of gold in the sky!

Samantha‘s sky is filled with raindrops from the Rainy Backdrop but the cute little Butterfly Kisses bunny sees the rainbow! She used an umbrella from Hello Baby and the little rainbow from Rain or Shine Before ‘n Afters!

Leave it to our beach-loving friend Jenn to create a card filled with a gorgeous sunny sky! She combined lots of new Summer 2019 products including Sunray Backdrop, Hammock and Trees, On the Beach and Hello Border!

We will have Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and we’ll share our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 52 on Thursday, May 23rd!

Samantha’s Beautiful Rainbow!

I am so excited to see all of the amazing projects you are sharing in the What’s the Weather? challenge gallery! You guys are so creative! And just in case you need more inspiration, Samantha joins us today with a beautiful card that features our Rainbow die!

To create this colorful rainbow, Samantha ink blended each stripe with Distress ink! Then to add lots of awesome dimension she splattered the rainbow with white acrylic paint! She stamped the large smiling face from Let’s Toast on the rainbow and layered it behind Puffy Cloud Borders cut from white cardstock and vellum!

To finish this fabulous design with extra fun, Samantha added stars with embossing paste with a star stencil over the whole card! Then she added her special sentiment from Critters at the Dog Park!

Thank you so much, Samantha, for sharing this incredible inspiration with us today!

Our What’s the Weather? challenge will be open until Sunday, March 3 at 11:59PM ET. We hope you will join us!

Happy Crafting from your friends at Lawn Fawnatics!

This challenge will be open until Sunday March 3 at 11:59PM ET.

For each challenge, we will randomly select a winner to receive a $25.00 gift certificate to the Lawn Fawn shop!

We have a Guest Designer for this challenge and we are so excited to introduce Marine Simon! She has been wowing us with her amazing cards and we are so happy to have her join us as our guest! You can find Marine on Instagram, YouTube and at her blog Blue Marine Craft! We know her awesome creativity will inspire you!

Marine‘s card is filled with sunny, glittery goodness! She started with a Stitched Cloud Backdrop and added a Copic colored Rainbow sprinkled with Chunky Glitter! The clouds (complete with silver linings) are from Blue Skies and the sun is from Out of This World! She finished this amazing card with a sentiment from Life is Good and scattered some stamped sparkle from Fairy Friends!

And now our amazing Design Team is here to inspire your creativity!

Who wouldn’t have an awesome day with this colorful sky up above! Samantha painted a rainbow of color then added images from Out of This World and Plane and Simple! The awesome sentiment is from Critter Concert! Check out the close up to see the cute glittery freckles on the faces of the clouds and sun!

Every bunny knows you need some Spring showers to make those yummy carrots grow! Joyce‘s sweet scene combines cuteness from Some Bunny, Upon a Star, and Plus One!

The weather forecast for Christy‘s card is clear with a chance of gnomes! She used our soon-to-be-released Oh Gnome! set combined with Gleeful Gardens, Bicycle Built for You and Gnome Sweet Gnome!

Jessica is a winter-loving girl so her extraordinary card has a gorgeous snowflake-filled night sky! The silver glitter Stitched Hillside adds to the frosty landscape for the scarf-wearing critter from Winter Skies! Ironically, the silver embossed sentiment is from our summer themed set, Life is Good!

Karin went with a snow theme as well, creating a sweet shaker card with frosty white sequins! She used Winter Skies and a Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frame!

Samantha‘s super cute and whimsical card features our little RAWR dino jumping in puddles after the rain! She used the soon-to-be-released set Rain or Shine Before ‘n Afters on her amazing sky background!

Grace‘s card has our Rub-A-Dub-Dub ducks frolicking in the rain and the sunshine! Her custom Reveal Wheel card spins from sprinkles to sun rays!

Here’s a peek behind the scenes of Grace‘s customized Reveal Wheel card.

Franci used Finley’s ABCs to spell out her adorable weather-themed sentiment on the outside and inside of her fabulous card! She used our soon-to-be-released Llama Tell You mini set to add a total cuteness factor!

Jenn‘s cheerful card features a watercolor sky on a Stitched Cloud Backdrop! She added more clouds with Simple Puffy Clouds and sunny color with our Rainbow die! For the greeting she combined a phrase from Simply Sentiments with a hello from Yay, Kites!

We will have Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and of course we’ll share our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 46 tomorrow!
