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!

Now let’s see how our amazing Design Team was inspired by the card sketch!

Christy‘s card is so beautiful! The silhouette of Santa’s sleigh flying over the moon and the snow frosted trees are from Ready Set Snow and they create a wonderful scene for the skating mouse!

Joyce‘s awesome design shows that she can think totally outside the box! Her Woodland Critter Huggers deer is the circle element and Mini String of Lights is the banner! How cute is this card?

Samantha followed the sketch pretty closely in making this awesome Halloween card! She combined Beam Me Up, Pick of the Patch, Hats Off to You and Holiday Party Animal along with Bunting Borders and a silver glitter Scalloped Circle! That inky green background is so cool!

Franci used the scripty sentiment from Mice on Ice to give the idea of a banner and Stitched Pond as the circle on her adorable card design! She added to the greeting using Offset Sayings: Christmas!

Samantha M flipped the sketch upside down! She used the Stitched Wave Borders as the banner and the half Rainbow as the circle! She finished her gorgeous design with Winter Narwhal and Christmas Fishes!

For everyone not ready to let go of Summer Karin created a beautiful card based on the card sketch! (Of course it’s still hot this week in So Cal so I’m more than ready for Fall!) Karin’s fun On the Beach scene uses the beach ball as the circle and the beach towel to suggest a banner!

Jessica‘s gorgeous card features Mice on Ice and Stitched Pond! The Stitched Snowflakes are a clever way to add the circle element from the sketch!

Caly got really creative and made a beautiful birthday shaker card! She used Stitched Cupcake and the cute little bunting from Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up for the sketch elements. Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables created the shaker window that works with the sketch! I love the Chunky Glitter on the cupcake frosting and the colorful “sprinkles” as shaker bits; it’s all in the details!

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 62 tomorrow!

Caly’s Cute Halloween Bats!

Hi, Friends!

This is Caly and I’m sharing a fun card made using bat Lawn Cuts. My project today combines the Woodland Critter Huggers Bat Add-On and the Tiny Gift Box Bat Add-On dies. I love when you can use 3D interactive dies on cards to make it a one-layer project!

To create my card, I first die-cut my bats. In order to create the mother bat, I first die-cut the bat body using the Woodland Critter Huggers Lawn Cut.  Then the other bat parts and candy came from the add-on set. The cardstock colors I used for the bats are Narwhal and Storm Cloud. I simply ink-blended Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink around the outer edges of the Narwal-colored pieces to give them a little more interest.

The smaller bats are created from the Tiny Gift Box Bat Add-On – I love the different wings and the bat vest, not to mention the cute little candy corn die. The candy and cheeks on my card are all cut using white cardstock and ink-blended with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Inks.

After assembling my bats, I added white gel highlights and then started working on my background.  I cut a strip of brown Woodgrain cardstock to create a branch from which the mother bat hangs. I ink-blended the branch piece with Vintage Photo to add some shading also. 

To create my background, I ink-blended a few colors from the challenge inspiration board using Peacock Feathers, Mowed Lawn and Mustard Seed.  I sprayed it with some water and also splattered it with watered-down black paint and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink. Then I attached the mother bat and the flying bat with foam adhesive and the tucked the other small bat behind the mother bat. To finish my card, the sentiment is stamped from the Costume Party stamp set.

I love these bats against the fun and colorful background and I hope you do too! Thanks so much for stopping by today! You have a few more days to join the fun and I hope I’ve inspired you!

Thank you, Caly, for inspiring us today!

Our Inspiration Board Challenge 62 will be open until October 20th at 11:59PM ET. We can’t wait to see how you will be inspired!
