Check out the How to Play page for a few guidelines to play along. We want this to be FUN so we’ll keep the rules to just a few!

Let’s see what our amazing Design Team created to inspire us!


Karin was inspired to create this gorgeous design using the sketch literally! She featured Puffy Star Stackables, that she inked and arranged beautifully! Adding the sweet little bird from Magic Iris Birdhouse Add-On makes for charming detail!

Christy got really creative and replaced the stars from the sketch with fun rooftop vignettes in her light-hearted holiday card! She used a combination of Rooftop Border and Ho-Ho-Holidays!

Samantha replaced the stars with the adorable Mice on Ice! She placed them on chunks of ice from Critters in the Arctic and Beary Happy Holidays along with a sprinkling of Mini Snowflakes!

Joyce also used Puffy Star Stackables in creating her super cute sketch inspired design! I love how she used the negative space for tucking in the little Say What? Christmas Critters!

Caly‘s beautiful Christmas card design replaces the stars in the sketch with Mini Wreaths! I love the cheery colors she used with the red berries and bows! She included the lovely sentiment from Snow Day!

Jessica‘s gorgeous card is so amazing! She used bright jewel colors for the String of Lights that stand in for the sketch stars. She placed her sentiment, combining Scripty Merry and Merry Messages, according to the sketch.

Franci‘s pastel Christmas cards are so sweet and happy! She recreated the card sketch with Puffy Star Stackables and Winter Unicorn! The wonderful die cut greetings are from Winter Big Scripty Words!

Samantha created an adorable design with an all-over pattern of cute Ho-Ho-Holidays reindeer! One even has a shiny red nose! She used Distress Oxide inks for the beautiful background! For the sentiment she white embossed a greeting from Toboggan Together on Black Licorice cardstock before fussy cutting it and layering it on the strip of vellum. (If you don’t have Samantha’s impressive fussy cutting skills, you could use the Merry Christmas Border instead!)

Jenn interpreted the card sketch with this frosty Jolly Christmas Tree design! She scattered Stitched Snowflakes over the background, then added the pretty joyful wishes greeting that is found in Winter Scripty Sentiments!

I hope you have been inspired by these amazing projects! We will share more Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 113 – Holiday Critters tomorrow! Now it’s time for you to get creative!

Glittery String of Lights with Jess!

Good morning! Jess here with a card for our current Bling It Up challenge! If you know my designs you know that I’m ALL about some sparkle and bling in my crafting! 😉 Earlier this week I used the String of Lights to create a fairy-inspired card for this challenge (you can find that card here). I had a few lights leftover and decided to create a similar but different card!

To start I die-cut both of the light bulb layers with white cardstock. I also die-cut the tops of the bulbs from silver cardstock from the Holiday Sparkle pack. I used Copic markers to color the top layer of the bulbs (BG10, BG11, BG13 and RV21, RV23, RV25) and then adhered them to the bottom layer and added the silver topper. I attached aqua and silver twine to the backs of the bulbs and then set those aside while I worked on the rest of the card.

I wanted to create the idea of a bokeh background so I used round blending tools to blend cracked pistachio and worn lipstick Distress ink in circles on a piece of Strathmore Bristol cardstock. Then I blended spun sugar Distress ink into any white areas. I spritzed the panel several times with water and iridescent spray for a super shimmery background!

Next I stamped the sentiment from Merry Messages onto black cardstock and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. I trimmed it down to a label and adhered it to the distress inked background with foam mounting tape. Then I adhered the light-bulbs using foam mounting tape and secured the strings to the back of my card panel with washi tape. I adhered the panel to a white card base and then went a little shimmer crazy! 😉

I applied a layer of Nuvo crystal glaze to each light bulb and then sprinkled the glaze with Chunky glitter and Prisma glitter. I also applied a light layer of crystal glaze around the light-bulbs and sprinkled it with Prisma glitter for a little extra glow of sparkle. Once the glaze was dry I added a few sparkling clear sequins and pink gems to finish the card! When this card catches the light it’s practically blinding! 😉

You have another 2 weeks to enter our Bling It Up challenge and I can’t wait to see your entries! Thanks so much for visiting and have a fantastic weekend!
