Samantha was inspired by the New Year challenge to create a gorgeous inked and stenciled design!

Samantha created the background by ink blending in an ombré fashion. She kept it darker at the top and lighter towards the bottom. Then she splattered it with the inky color and white acrylic ink to mimic fireworks and excitement! Once it was all dry, she used some White Stencil Paste and the Snowflake Trio Stencil to add some wintery texture.

Samantha heat embossed part of the sentiment from Let’s Bokeh in white onto some Black Licorice Cardstock, then popped it up with foam tape.

The Scripty Cheers was die cut out in 80lb white cardstock 5 times, and then one time in the Metallic Gold Cardstock. She layered them together with liquid glue and added some glitter for even more shine. Then she finished off the card with a sprinkling of gold star sequins!

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


Joyce’s Clean and Simple Snowball Fight Card

We can’t wait to see how you are inspired by this Card Sketch! Link up your entry photos HERE! Your project should feature Lawn Fawn stamps, dies, stencils and papers and follow the challenge theme. This challenge will be open until Sunday, December 18 at 11:59PM ET.

Joyce joins us today with an adorable card featuring the cute Snowball Fight mice!

Joyce stayed pretty faithful to the Card Sketch with her beautiful design. She stenciled the Snowflake Trio and more snowflakes from Snowflake Background in Doe Ink on Kraft cardstock for a pretty rustic look.

Then she stamped the sentiment in Doe ink before assembling the cute “snowmouse” building scene! This clean and simple design is so sweet!

Thank you so much for sharing with us today, Joyce!


Happy crafting, friends!

Samantha’s Gorgeous Inspiration

Our Happy New Year Inspiration Board Challenge 115 will be open until Sunday, January 2nd at 11:59PM ET. We hope the beautiful photos and theme will inspire you and you will join us! Click HERE to go to the challenge post to enter your project!

Samantha is here today to share her gorgeous card inspired by our new challenge!

Samantha took her inspiration from the bottom left photo. She created a beautiful card with a woodgrain pattern. She stared by ink-blending a panel of white cardstock with Distress Oxide inks in Fossilized Amber and Vintage Photo. Then she added gold watercolor splatters. Then once the background was dry, Samantha stamped Woodgrain Backdrops with Walnut Stain Distress ink.

Then she used White Stencil Paste to add the Snowflake Trio Stencils over the woodgrain. While that was drying, she heat-embossed the sentiment from Snowy Backdrops in white on a vellum Fancy Wavy Banner. After attaching the sentiment banner, the final touch was a few clear sequins!

Thank you so much, Samantha! Your take on the Inspiration Board is so beautiful!


Lots of love from your friends at Lawn Fawnatics!
