Design Team Inspiration

The design team has made the most amazing samples! Remember to click on the person’s name to see all of the details and leave these wonderful DT girls some comment love! And be sure to check out the Intro Video below!

Kara combined all three of our spotlighted sets on this cheerful “woofday” card! Pawsome Birthday works so well with Yappy Birthday and Yappy Birthday Add-On! Giant Make a Wish and Star Border make this birthday card so special!

Latisha made Pawsome Birthday the star of her delightful design! The rainbow colors and grid pattern create so much festive fun!

I love how Elise created a cool and colorful background with Star Border! Then all she needed to finish her amazing design is Giant Make a Wish die cut from Rose Gold Metallic cardstock! So stunning!

Yainea got so clever altering Giant Make a Wish! She swapped out “wish” for a trimmed Scripty Wishes in shiny gold and it looks so awesome! Then she added fun birthday images from Pawsome Birthday and Yappy Birthday! The tiny dog bones are so adorable creating pattern in the background.

Caly‘s Pawsome Birthday pup is so cute playing with the Furry and Bright pups! She set the scene brilliantly with lovely color and also the sofa from Window Scene: Winter!

Megan‘s aquarium-themed birthday card is so clever and creative! She cut Giant Make a Wish twice, once from white cardstock and again from Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper. She used a Stitched Wavy Border to cut the rainbow paper before adding it to the other die cut to look like cake frosting! And then to really add fun she topped it off with candles from Stitched Cupcake!

I love how Lynnette added sweet little puppy vignettes around the Giant Make a Wish greeting! The pups from Pawsome Birthday, Yappy Birthday and Yappy Birthday Add-On add so much cuteness to this happy card!

And then Tammy used the same three dogs to fill her Platform Pop-Up birthday card! I love the fun color combo and the clever doghouse she created!

Grace‘s birthday card is so special, it totally takes the cake! She created the “cake stand” by combining Rooftop Border and Build-A-Drink Cocktail Add-On, so clever! She also added extra sparkle with Confetti Background Hot Foil Plate and lots of gold details!

Elena‘s card is so adorable for someone who’s a “bug deal”! Using Giant Make a Wish as her greeting, she then crafted a cute scene with A Bug Deal and Simply Celebrate More Critters!

Audrey‘s Dandy Day scene is so charming and goes so well with “making a wish”! The Giant Make a Wish greeting will fit perfectly with so many of our cute and happy sets!

The Pawsome Birthday pup is showing up all the best parties! Megan set the scene with Yappy Birthday and Yappy Birthday Add-On then she finished with a Scripty Birthday greeting!
