Samantha’s Car Critters Scene

Hey everyone, Samantha here with a card that is inspired by the current Create a Scene challenge! I always love creating scenes, because they are so fun to build. 

I created a cute road trip scene, that is perfect for summertime adventure! The Car Critters stamp set is so adorable, I love how you can add the different critters in the car. There are additional stamps that can create fun license plates or a grill on the front of the car. I wanted to create a scene with a lot of depth.

I wanted to create a scene with a lot of depth. I started with the Sunray Backdrop on a piece of Watercolor Wishes Petite 6×6 paper. A grass border from the Grassy Hillside Borders set creates a charming ground. I used the Simple Road Border set for the road. I placed two roads together to ensure it would be wide enough for the car. The curve of the road lines up perfectly, so you are able to fit them together nicely. 

You have until Sunday, June 14th at 11:59PM EST to enter the Create a Scene challenge! I hope you have a wonderful day! 


Have a wonderful weekend! Happy crafting!

A Sweet Big Thanks Card with Samantha!

Hey everyone, Samantha here with a card inspired by the current Something Old, Something New challenge. I created the sweetest thank you card using the HA + Lawn Fawn Big Thanks stamp set. I love the rhinos in this set so much and their little bird friends are just adorable. You can really create a fun scene with this set! 

I wanted to try something different with my rhinos, so I stamped them on the Spiffy Speckles paper and then colored the shadows with my Copic markers. I wanted to make sure that I didn’t over-saturate the paper because I was looking for a subtle shadowing. I applied the same technique for the birds and the landscape elements. 

My background was created by layering two background die cuts together. I used Watercolor Wishes paper and layered the Stitched Hillside Backdrop; Landscape on top of the Sunray Backdrop. I cut another Stitched Hillside Backdrop; Landscape out of the Spiffy Speckles paper and layered it on top of the ground, leaving the darker pink watercolor paper to frame the sky. 

There is another week to participate in the Something Old, Something New challenge! You have until Sunday, January 19th at 11:59PM ET to enter your project! We look forward to seeing what you create. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have an amazing day! 

Thank you so much for sharing this super cute inspiration with us today, Samantha!

We have a super sweet and talented Guest Designer joining us for this challenge! Help us welcome, Tammy Stark! She shares her amazing creativity on Instagram as paperprettyboutique!

Tammy created a super charming card with a trio of Tiny Gift Box Cat Add-On kitties and their fishy friends! Each fishbowl is a shaker element made with a Stitched Circle Frame and strip of cardstock to make the lip of the bowl. So creative! Tammy filled the fishbowls with cute critters from Fintastic Friends along with tiny seed beads. The sweet message in a speech bubble is from Say What? Pets!

Now let’s check out what our awesome Design Team has created to inspire you!

Jessica‘s amazing alcohol inked background could not be more beautiful! She used the Sunray Backdrop, die cut from gold glitter cardstock as the see-through element. I love the silhouette Palm Tree Border and glittery Scripty Hello!

The cuteness here is off the charts! Samantha die cut the Stitched Gift Card Pocket from acetate then slipped this adorable Lovable Legends card inside! To create the look of Loch Ness, she added a vellum layer cut with a Stitched Wavy Border and a piece of the Bayou Backdrop.

Franci crafted an adorable Keep on Swimming card with sweet pastel colors! She turned the little fishbowl into the shaker element using the Reveal Wheel Keep on Swimming Add-On. She filled the fishbowl with Chunky and Prisma glitter and sealed it in with acetate!

My age is really showing, but when I saw Christy‘s gorgeous card I started singing, “Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream…”! This dreamy design uses a layer of vellum for the clouds! The Sandman is our cute gnome, his net is from Butterfly Kisses and the teddy bear is from Holiday Helpers!

Samantha‘s Shadow Box Card fits the challenge theme with its 3D scene of Wild for You and Critters in the Jungle images! Scroll down to see how she stamped and colored the outside of this amazing design!

Joyce created a fun RAWRSOME Scalloped Treat Box filled with candy! Her see-through element is a little window in the side covered with acetate so you can see the treats inside! So clever!

Karin‘s gorgeous card has an acetate card base layered with a Fancy Lattice Backdrop! This sweet birthday card features the cute penguin from Toboggan Together!

We will share Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 58 tomorrow!
