We are so happy to welcome Mimi as our Guest Designer for this challenge! You probably know and follow her as dasmimz on Instagram. She has been impressing us with her amazing creativity and we are so excited to share her New Year projects! Look for her second card to inspire you next week!

Mimi was inspired by the cool bokeh image in the Inspiration Board to create this amazing design! The Snow Much Fun and Den Sweet Den bears are celebrating the new year in style! Mimi used Let’s Bokeh to make a festive backdrop for her cheery scene! To make this an interactive card, Mimi used the Waving Pull-Tab Starter Set to make the bear wave his paws with the party accessories.

Now let’s check out the Happy New Year projects by our amazing Design Team!

The Really High Five critters are flyin’ by with Happy New Year wishes on Caly‘s fun design! She used the Puffy Cloud Backdrop: Portrait to create the that awesome background which she blended with pretty pastel inks! She used Oliver’s Stitched 123s in glittery gold and a Fancy Wavy Banner to stamped with a Winter Wavy Sayings sentiment to complete the happy greeting!

Franci’s mice are baking up a sweet wish for the new year! She combined A Creature Was Stirring and Baked with Love to create this lovely confection!

Samantha was inspired by the bokeh image in the inspiration board! She used Let’s Bokeh to create shiny clear embossed “bubbles” on a beautifully inked backdrop! The greeting is found in the Let’s Bokeh set as well.

Karin‘s card is so beautiful with its colorful Stitched Poinsettia and Oliver’s Stitched 123s in metallic gold! I love the pretty Quilted Backdrop behind the flower and all the fun layers!

Christy‘s beautiful interactive card is a wonderful mix of old and new! She created a Magic Iris Snow Globe Add-On design featuring Ready Set Snow, Let It Shine papers and a greeting from Merry Messages!

Samantha used a festive color palette with shiny gold and gray to create this happy new year card! She combined Scripty Cheers with cute images from Party Animal with Metallic Gold and Shimmer cardstock. The star in the background is our classic Puffy Star Stackables cut from Cream Sprinkle and Shine Let It Shine paper!

Jessica‘s design features a Woodland Critter Hugger decked out in accessories from the Winter Add-On on a tall slimline card! When you open the critters arms the greeting combining Happy Happy Happy Add-On and Scripty Cheers is completed using Finley’s 123s!

Joyce created a lovely card with wishes for a year filled with happiness using Tree Before ‘n Afters! It is simply beautiful!

Jenn is the bringing the sparkly bling and bold bokeh in her new year design! She used Oliver’s Stitched ABCs and 123s to spell out the Chunky and Prisma Glitter sprinkled greeting! She finished the message on a Fancy Folded Banner!

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 90 tomorrow!

Awesome Autumn Inspiration with Samantha!

Samantha is here today to share an awesome slimline card for our new Awesome Autumn challenge! She created a long scene for a long sentiment!

Samantha used Large Slimline with Sliders to die cut a tall panel and blended Distress Oxide inks in Tumbled Glass, Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Peacock Feathers. She added some dimension by sprinkling water to react with the oxide ink to leave random droplets.

She stamped and colored with Zig markers images from Into the Woods, Dandy Day, Really High Five, Super Star, A Bug Deal, You’re Just My Type and Love Poems. She arranged the images and attached them with foam tape.

The timely sentiment was white embossed on Black Licorice cardstock using Harold’s ABCs. Samantha trimmed the words into strips and popped them up on the card with foam tape. As a finishing touch, she added a bit of sparkle to the acorns with Prisma glitter!

Thanks so much for inspiring us today, Samantha!

Supplies:

We hope you are enjoying the change of season’s! Happy crafting!
