Samantha’s Travels to Loch Ness!

Our  Travel Destination/Favorite Place challenge is a 3 week challenge that will be open until Sunday, June 6 at 11:59PM ET! Click HERE to add your entry to the Challenge 101 gallery!

Samantha shares a unique travel memory with her Travel Destination/Favorite Place inspiration today! We will let her tell you about it!

For my card, I kept the current challenge theme going by making it a tribute to Loch Ness! My family and I were so blessed to be able to go to Scotland with my grandpa to see where he was born, and to see some family we had there, for 2 weeks! We took a long trip up to the Isle of Skye (swoon, so gorgeous!) and then on the way back, we stopped at Loch Ness! I had been head over heals with Nessie since I was a girl listening to stories from my grandpa, and couldn’t imagine not stopping by to look for her!

I used the Stitched Mountain Borders to create the backdrop, and then used the Stitched Hillside Borders to die cut the lake shape under the mountains! I used Distress Inks to ink blend everything! The mountains were done with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn, and the lake was done with Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Salvaged Patina!

I also used the Starry Sky Stencil to ink blend some stars in the sky, then I used it again to add some glittery stars!

I heat embossed the sentiment in white onto some Black Licorice cardstock and then fussy cut it out! I also colored the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and fussy cut them out! Nessie is from Lovable Legends (of course!) and the trees are from Yeti, Set, Go!

Thank you so much for sharing this brilliant inspiration today, Samantha! I love your fun travel story!

Laura’s Beautiful Fall Slimline Card

Our amazing Guest Designer, Laura Franzoni is back today to share a gorgeous slimline card celebrating all things Fall!

Our Awesome Autumn challenge is open for another week, closing on Sunday October 4th at 11:59PM ET.

The cute Car Critters are out for a drive in the countryside enjoying the Autumn landscape! It’s a perfect time to pick up a pumpkin from the squirrels’ pumpkin patch! I love how the pumpkin is tied to the top of the car!

Laura used the Large Slimline with Sliders die set to create the tall panel for her amazing scene! Then she used Stitched Mountain Borders and Simple Stitched Hillside Borders to create the landscape. She added Fall color with the Tree Before ‘n Afters and finished with Oliver’s Stitched ABCs spelling out Fall!

We want to thank Laura for sharing her talent and creativity with us for the Awesome Autumn challenge! Check out her Instagram, you will be inspired!

We hope you have a great week! Happy crafting!
