Summertime Fun Inspiration with Samantha!

Samantha joins us today to share some beachy inspiration for our Summertime Fun challenge!

These cute bears are enjoying a day at the beach in this colorful scene! The bear from On the Beach is getting some sun, the Really High Five bear is playing in the waves and there’s the little bear from Smooth Sailing peeking out from behind the sandcastle he’s building!

Samantha used scene building border sets, Stitched Wave Borders and Stitched Hillside Borders, to create layers of ocean waves and sandy beach! She added a greeting from Reveal Wheel Sentiments!

Thank you so much for this happy inspiration, Samantha! I’m sure we would all love to join this cute bear family at the beach!

The new Summertime Fun challenge will be open until Sunday, August 2 at 11:59PM ET. We hope you will join us!


Thanks for stopping by today! Happy Crafting!

Christy’s Stud Puffin Card Inspired by the Challenge Color Palette!

Hey friends, it’s Christy! I hope all who celebrate had a very Merry Christmas! I’m here today with another card for our Inspiration Board Challenge. I focused on that gorgeous cool-toned color palette and colored my cute Stud Puffins with Copic markers, adding in images from Mermaid for You and You Are Sublime to complete the look.

Then I took Mermaid, Moonstone, and Blue Jay cardstock and trimmed them down with the Stitched Wave Borders. I adhered two of them flat to my card base, then stamped a sentiment on the third with Peacock ink and popped it up with foam tape. I used a combination of Glue Tube and foam tape to adhere my images.

To finish things off, I added two clouds from the Spring Showers dies and stamped a seagull from Life Is Good in the sky. If you’d like to see how this card came together, I have a video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty. You still have another week to play along in our last challenge for 2019! We can’t wait to see what you create!

Our Inspiration Board challenge will be open until Sunday, January 5th at 11:59PM ET. We hope you will join us!

Thank you so much for sharing with us today, Christy! Your beautiful scene is absolutely brilliant!


Wishing all of our Fawnatics friends a very happy New Year!

Now let’s check out the Beautiful Beaches inspiration by our talented Design Team!

I don’t know about you, but I want to hang out at Jessica‘s amazing beach! She used the Sunrise Backdrop to create an amazing background along with the Tropical Backdrop! The cute little Smooth Sailing critters add just a bit of whimsy!

Samantha‘s amazing beach scene features a fun interactive pull-tab! She combined Mermaid for You and Screen Time to create the children, so clever! The dolphin from Critters in the Sea jumps with the help of the Let’s Toast Pull Tab Add-On! I love the punny sentiment using Harold’s ABCs!

With a simple ink blended background and cute images, Karin‘s Life is Good card is totally charming! Clean and simple design at it’s best!

Christy used the beautiful color inspiration on her gorgeous card! The colors in the ocean are so amazing! “Seas the day” with the adorable sailboats and tiny critters from Smooth Sailing!

Franci‘s fantastic shaker card is so adorable made with just die sets! She started with the Shadow Box Card Park Add-On to make the stitched window, then the scene is a combination of Palm Trees, Scalloped Treat Box Beach House Add-On and Stitched Wave Borders! The greeting is Scripty Hello and she filled the shaker window with Chunky and Prisma glitter!

Samantha‘s adorable ocean scene combines Smooth Sailing with the cute Whale You Be Mine whale! She framed her sweet scene with the window from Shadow Box Card Ocean Add-On and added cute detail with Lawn Trimmings Sky cord!

Joyce created an adorable beach scene using On the Beach and Sunrise Backdrop! I love how she used the sunrays to create a bright sunny day at the beach! All of the colorful beach accessories add to the fun of this amazing card design!

Grace made a super cute beach scene for a couple of the Life is Good crabs to frolic in! Underneath the Stitched Simple Wavy Border she hid a Slide On Over Waves channel so the crab and his buddy can slide around with the help of an acetate strip! She also used the Tropical Backdrop and Finley’s ABCs!

With a minimum of stamping, Jenn created the quintessential beach scene! She used a combination of Stitched Wave Borders and Stitched Simple Wavy Borders, a Stitched Hillside for the sand and Spring Showers for the sun and clouds! I love how she added the greeting from You Are Sublime on the sign post from Open Me! The palm branches are found in the Hammock and Trees die set!

Jenn used Lawn Fawn inks to add color to everything! She used Butter, Jalapeño, Fish Tank, Peacock and Minty Fresh!

We will share Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and we’ll share our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 55 tomorrow!
