Autumn Inspiration with Samantha!

Samantha joins us today with some unique Awesome Autumn inspiration! Her Gleeful Gardens mushrooms give an unexpected pop of rainbow color!

Samantha started with machine stitching the Stitched Leaves to a navy blue card base. The vellum and black and white polka dot leaves provide a neutral backdrop for the colorful images!

Samantha finished this gorgeous card design by adding some glittery accents to the mushroom caps and white pen detail to the cute snail!

Thank you so much, Samantha! This is such a clever and creative take on the Awesome Autumn challenge theme!

This challenge runs for 3 weeks and will be open until Sunday, October 6 at 11:59PM ET. We hope you will join the fun and share your vision of an Awesome Autumn!


Happy Crafting, Fawnatics Friends!

A Sparkly Thanksgiving Card

Hello Fawnatics friends! It’s Nancy here today to share a sparkly card for our Bling It Out Challenge! I’m not known for adding lots of bling to my cards but I love Lawn Fawn’s new Sparkle cardstock packs so they were my glittery go-to supply for this card!

I combined colors from the Sparkle Autumn and Sparkle Holiday packs to die cut a bunch of Stitched Leaves and Small Stitched Leaves along with some Spring Sprigs! I arranged the leaves on a kraft cardstock circle so keep the wreath shape as close to round as I could. I had stamped and gold embossed the sentiment from Thankful Mice before I started arranging the leaves. To attach the leaves I used a combination of Lawn Fawn Glue Tube and Small Foam Squares.

I love how the bright sparkly wreath looks on the dark brown Woodgrain cardstock!

There is still time to enter our Bling it Out challenge, it will be open until Sunday, November 4 at 11:59PM ET. Check out all the amazing entries so far for some great inspiration!


Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hope you have a fun Halloween!

Our amazing Design Team has made some fabulous cards to inspire you!

Samantha C. got really clever creating a cute Hang in There sloth scene with our Outside In Stitched Apple Stackables! She used the coordinating Stitched Apple Frames to finish the fun apple frame! Jump for Joy leaves and Critters in the Forest mushrooms add to the warm Fall theme!

Karin‘s Jump for Joy critters are enjoying a pile of leaves in Fall colors! How cool is that subtle cloudy background!

Joyce created a beautiful Autumn scene with cute images from Happy Harvest! The cute white rabbit from Some Bunny looks right at home with the sunflowers and pumpkins!

Samantha M was inspired by the top left image in the mood board to make this gorgeous watercolor gem! She used Distress Oxide inks to add color to the Stitched Leaves and to the background! She did some selective inking to create the sweet down home greeting using the sentiments in the new set Thanks a Latte!

Christy‘s happy little scene features Jump for Joy leaves with the cute little squirrels from Cheery Christmas! She framed the little scene with a Scalloped Circle!

Jessica filled her full-card shaker with leaves, sequins and beads in Fall colors to give the look of falling leaves! She set the scene with Leafy Tree Backdrop die cut from Knock on Wood 6×6 papers!

Franci‘s card is so whimsical and fun! It’s a clean and simple design with cute little apples from Thanks a Bushel! The tiny faces on the apples adds so much whimsy!

Jenn‘s cute Double Slider Surprise card features critters from Pick of the Patch and So Owlsome! The cute scene is filled with color from the Knit Picky Fall background!

This fun interactive card extends when you pull the tabs to reveal an additional scene and a sentiment on the hidden slider panels! To see how to make a Double Slider Surprise card check out the product intro video by Kelly Marie Alvarez HERE.
