Samantha’s Holiday Cup of Cheer

You’re invited to share your Coffee, Tea & Treats projects by linking up your photos HERE! Your project should feature Lawn Fawn stamps, dies, stencils and papers and focus on coffee and/or tea and yummy treats.  This challenge will be open for 3 weeks closing on Sunday, November 6 at 11:59PM ET.

Samantha joins us today to share a gorgeous Christmas card!

Samantha cut the Stitched Poinsettia and Stitched Mug Frame from white cardstock so she could add color with Distress inks! She first did a watercolor wash then she blended on more ink to add vibrancy to the color! She made a fun shaker element by adding acetate to the mug and filling it with clear and silver sequins!

I love the details that Samantha added to this gorgeous design; the splatters on the mug frame and poinsettias and the pattern in the background with Simple Stripes: Diagonal! She also included a sentiment from Window Scene: Winter!

This card is so beautiful, Samantha! Thank you for inspiring with us today!


Happy crafting, friends!

Samantha’s Cozy Couch Scene

We hope you enjoy today’s inspiration! It’s the last weekend for the Cards for Guys Inspiration Board challenge! We can’t wait to see your creativity! This challenge will be open until Sunday, May 15 at 11:59PM ET. 

What’s better than an afternoon nap on the couch? Samantha captured this cozy idea perfectly!

Samantha combined Window Scene: Winter with Den Sweet Den and On the Beach to portray most guys’ favorite Sunday afternoon activity! Gotta recharge for the week to come!

She used papers from Into the Woods Remix for the interior decoration. Then she scored white cardstock to create a fun fan-folded technique for the unique curtains!

Thanks so much for inspiring us today, Samantha!


Remember to get your entries for Inspiration Board- Cards for Guys linked HERE by Sunday, May 15th at 11:59PM ET. Looking forward to seeing your creativity!

We will be back on Monday with another fun challenge!

Samantha’s “Friend-ly” Lobsters!

We hope you are having fun with the Inspired by a Book, Movie or Song challenge and we can’t wait to see your creativity! This challenge will be open until Sunday April 3 at 11:59PM ET.

Samantha was inspired by the TV show Friends to create her fun card!

In this “Friends” inspired design, Samantha used an iconic line by Phoebe as the theme of her card! She used the lobster from You Are Sublime, mirror stamping one so they can face each other, and the couch from Window Scene: Winter. The umbrellas are from Beary Rainy Day!

For the title and sentiment, Samantha combined Henry’s ABCs dies and Harold’s ABCs!

Thanks so much for inspiring us with your amazing design, Samantha!
