Sending Hugs with Samantha and Plant-A-Succulent

We hope you enjoy today’s inspiration! The challenge gallery is filling up with some amazing creativity and there is room for yours too! The Challenge 125 – Dies Only is a 3-week challenge and will be open until Sunday, June 5 at 11:59PM ET. 

Samantha joins us today with an amazingly cute Plant-A-Succulent card! I’m sure it will inspire you!

Samantha’s clean and simple design has so much personality! She brought the succulents to life with colorful Distress Inks! Then she sprinkled them with water and white acrylic ink to add even more fun!

For the background she added the Brick Stencil pattern with warm colors of Distress Oxide (Abandoned Coral and Dried Marigold) so the colorful plants would pop! The final touch was to add the greeting with Scripty Hugs! She die-cut it from Black Licorice cardstock 5 times, stacking the layers to make a chipboard style element!

Your card is so happy and fun, Samantha! Thanks so much for sharing with us today!


Happy crafting friends!

We are so happy to welcome a super talented Guest Designer for this challenge! Say hello to Nancy van Oosten! You know her as @creastudionancy on Instagram and we are sure her amazing creativity has wowed and inspired you! You can also find her creativity at her blog and YouTube channel.

Nancy created a magical scene with a gorgeous color palette featuring Gnome Sweet Gnome, A Bug Deal and Fairy Friends! She filled out the landscape with Stitched Tree Borders and Mushroom Border! I love how she called attention to the Lucky Stars sentiment by framing it with the Stitched Rainbow! So very clever!

Now let’s check out some beautiful inspiration by our amazing Design Team!

Joyce filled this super happy card with lots of creative fun! She used Oliver’s Stitched ABCs to spell out part of the greeting, replacing the i with the cute jumping bunny from Really High Five!

Samantha‘s pretty card features lots of fun dies and one adorable little ant from Crazy Antics! This design has a Fancy Lattice Backdrop in neutral cardstock colors of Kraft and Paper Bag. The Scripty Hello and Stitched Speech Bubble Frame are cut from Vanilla Malt cardstock to continue the neutral colors. Samantha backed the speech bubble with vellum to allow the greeting to stand out!

It doesn’t get much more charming than Franci‘s Dandy Day design! She spelled out “hello” with Finley’s ABCs die cuts and framed it all with a Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frame!

Christy‘s Scripty Hugs greeting blends seamlessly into the inky background of her amazing Ocean Shell-fie card! She used Large Slimline Sliders and Slimline Stitched Hillside Borders to create this long underwater scene! I love how she combined a sweet sentiment from Mom + Me with the die cut word!

Karin‘s delightful design uses a fun image from Fortune Teller Tabby that calls attention to the sentiment! Her beautiful inky background and die cut stars add to the mysterious look of this beautiful card!

Caly‘s joyful design combines Happy Village with Village Heroes in a slimline design on a stenciled cloud backdrop! The charming greeting is a combination of Scripty Sweet and Oliver’s Stitched ABCs.

Samantha‘s awesome Halloween design spells out BOO using Oliver’s Stitched ABCs! I love how she dressed the letters up with in costumes from Booyah! To make the cool background she used the inside part from a Stitched Cloud Frame as a mask to do some fantastic ink blending!

Jessica created a custom greeting from an inspirational quote! She spelled it out with Finley’s ABCs dies and Milo’s ABCs white heat-embossed on the cool galaxy backdrop! The Out of This World and Upon a Star images add lots of cuteness to this special card!

Jenn‘s cards are filled with bold, bright colors from alcohol inks! The beautiful design features a simple die cut hello that is found in the Magic Color Slider die set.

We will share Design Team inspiration for you over the next 3 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 82 tomorrow!

Jessica’s Cute Sloth Card

Good morning! Jess here with a card for our current Something Old, Something New challenge! This challenge will open until this Sunday, January 19th at 11:59PM ET.

Here’s what I created! 😉

To start I blended Cracked Pistachio, Broken China, and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink onto a panel of Strathmore Bristol cardstock cut to 3.75” by 8”. I splattered the panel with water and blotted off the excess.

Next I stamped the cute sloths from Hang in There and the 2019 exclusive Thanksgiving thank you set, I Like Naps with Versafine and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder. I colored them with Copic markers and then die-cut them with the coordinating dies. I also colored and die-cut a bunch of leaves from both sets. I arranged the sloths on my slimline card and then added the Scripty Hugs die-cut from black cardstock. I also added another small label sentiment stamped from Hang in There to finish the card!

And that’s it! This is the last weekend to get crafty and I can’t wait to see how this challenge inspires you! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic week!



Wishing you all a happy crafty weekend!
