Samantha’s Gorgeous Inspiration

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!

A Magical Christmas Card with Samantha

Samantha M shares a beautiful Christmas card with magical Happy Holiday Critters to inspire you today!

Samantha’s sleigh pulled tiny unicorns is so clever! These magical critters are right at home above the white and vellum Puffy Cloud Borders! Samantha combined unicorns from Unicorn Picnic, Winter Unicorn and A Little Sparkle to pull the sleigh from Ho-Ho-Holidays.

How cute is that unicorn riding in the sleigh?

To add even more magical detail, Samantha used the Snowflake Trio Stencil to add pretty snowflakes with white embossing paste.

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

The Happy Holiday Critters challenge runs for 3 weeks and will be open until Sunday December 6! We can’t wait to see what you will create!

Supplies:

Have a wonderful day!
