Jessica’s Happy Halloween Inspiration!

Our Halloween/Fall Inspiration challenge will close this Sunday, October 18th at 11:59PM ET. Happy Crafting Fawnatics Friends!

Good morning!  Jess here with a card for our current Halloween/Fall inspiration challenge!  I used three of the photos as inspiration for my spooky scene today!

To start I blended black soot distress oxide ink over the cloud stencil on a panel of Strathmore Bristol smooth cardstock to create my sky.  I used a blending brush to keep my blending very light.  I die-cut a circle from Strathmore Bristol smooth cardstock and blended squeezed lemonade and mustard seed distress oxide ink over the circle to create my moon.  I splattered it with water and blotted off the excess to give it a little texture.  Next I die-cut the Stitched Tree Borders from Black Licorice cardstock and the Little Town Border from Black Licorice and Sunflower cardstock.  I adhered my moon to the background and then added the tree and town.  Then I inlaid the little windows and doors to recreate the skies and glowing windows from the inspiration photo!

Next I stamped images from Fox Costumes Before ‘n Afters, Costume Party, and Happy Harvest 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 added a few accents with a white gel pen and then added them to my scene with a mix of regular adhesive and foam mounting tape.  I finished the card with a sentiment from Costume Party stamped and heat-embossed with white embossing powder!

And that’s it!  You have one more weekend to get crafty and I can’t wait to see what you’ll create!  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend!

Wishing you a happy and crafty weekend!

Joyce’s Charming Fishing Scene

Joyce is with us today to share charming inspiration for the Create a Scene challenge!

Joyce used scene building dies to create a fun meadow and pond. Stitched Tree Borders are in the background and she used Simple Stitched Hillside Borders, Simple Grassy Hillsides and Grassy Border to make the pond! Images from Swan Soirée add to the scenery in and around the pond.

The little fisherman is from Bicycle Built for You and the fishing pole and bucket of fish are found in Beary Happy Holidays! The can that he hooked is from Hay There. To fill out the scene Joyce added the hat from Dad + Me and the sleeping dog from Christmas Dreams!

Thank you for this super cute Create a Scene inspiration, Joyce!


Happy Crafting! We are looking forward to seeing how you are creating scenes!

Caly used our Let’s Toast Pull Tab Add-On to create a super fun interactive design! She combined Thanks a Bushel with the cute bear from For You Deer with a bright blend of ink in the background! She used the banner from Double Slider Surprise to add the sweet sentiment!

How much fun is Christy‘s design! I love how she “removed” the ice skates from our Mice on Ice so they can take a stroll through an Autumn landscape created with Stitched Tree Borders and Fall Fling paper!

Nothing says Awesome Autumn like our Happy Harvest scarecrow, sunflowers and cute crows! Franci gave her design a lovely warm hued sky!

Jessica built a beautiful Autumn scene with Leafy Tree Backdrop along Thanks a Bushel, Pick of the Patch and Fairy Friends!

Joyce created a Tree Before ‘n Afters card with a wish for happiness all year featuring an Awesome Autumn scene! She used a cottage from Winter Village in each window of the Foursquare Backdrop: Portrait to complete the little scenes!

Karin‘s fun Fall design starts with the Jump for Joy owl and leaves swirling in the breeze! Of course the Butterfly Kisses fox is running to catch them!

Even a fun-loving Yeti can enjoy the change of seasons by jumping in a pile of leaves! Samantha C used a Stitched Hillside Backdrop with Fall Fling papers to build her Awesome Autumn scene!

Samantha was inspired by Chari’s card to create her beautiful Autumn scene! She combined the Joy to the Woods trees with a canopy of Puffy Cloud Border. Those cute critters are from Upon a Star!
