Sometimes Life is Prickly Inspiration

Elena placed the cute Sometimes Life is Prickly porcupine front and center in her charming design! She also included some cuties from Porcu-pine for You and greeting from All the Speech Bubbles.

Audrey‘s unique design is so cool! She left the cactus plants uncolored which looks so perfect with the rest of the black and white elements. And then she added the adorable and “prickly” porcupine, colored so beautifully!

Mindy‘s coloring is so amazing and brings all the images in this design to life! I love how she combined the Sometimes Life is Prickly critter with potted cactus and succulents from Simply Celebrate Summer!

Yainea‘s pastel card is so sweet! It’s so perfect for sending a heartfelt apology for being prickly! She created her sentiment with the help of Cole’s ABCs. Then she placed the porcupine and the cactus inside a Stitched Scalloped Circle Frame and layered everything on a What’s Sewing On background.

Latisha created a one-layer card that is so full of color and fun! I love the unique colors she chose to color the cute critter!

My Rainbow Inspiration

Marine‘s My Rainbow card is so much fun! She inked the background using Cloudy Stencil, then she arranged all the magical elements! She combined My Rainbow with All the Clouds along with little fairies from A Little Sparkle and Unicorn Picnic. Then she colored in the sentiment with bright rainbow colors, so fun!

Melissa paired My Rainbow with Unicorn Picnic, creating a cheery design with Radiant Heart Backdrop!

Unicorn Picnic shows up in another fun design featuring My Rainbow! For her card, Grace created a custom backdrop using strips of Unicorn Party Foiled Washi tape! I looks so amazing!

Grace also colored the rainbow sentiment using a pastel rainbow palette. To finish her design, she added Scripty Friends in gold glitter cardstock and Scalloped Rectangle of Rainbow Ever After paper.

Elise also used a panel of Rainbow Ever After paper as a background for her lovely card! I love how she arranged her elements on the background adding crystal sequins for a bit of sparkle!

Caly‘s Give It a Whirl card has a magical look with the pastel stenciled clouds on Rainbow Ever After paper. She also found that My Rainbow and Unicorn Picnic are a perfect pairing! And of course, Foiled Sentiments: Sending Rainbows is just the right sentiment!

And Megan also was inspired to combine My Rainbow with Unicorn Picnic on a Give It a Whirl interactive card! The result is so magical!

  1. I love the Unicorn set, and it goes perfectly with the Rainbow set! Adorable!

    A fun fact about me is that I love Country Line Dancing! Several years ago, I took some lessons and have gotten pretty good at it! I am, however, looking for a better partner because my husband has two left feet. LOL

    1. In addition to card making, I’m also a watercolor and crochet artist! I also love performing in musical theatre productions! xoxo

  2. Along wit a funny husband and cute puggle, I have had a fun career of decorating cakes and a fun hobby of cardmaking for many years. Life is fun!

  3. I know a bunch of useless (but fun) things such as I do toilet paper origami, towel origami, balloon animals and lots more random stuff! Love the extra bonus inspiration week!

  4. A fun fact about myself is that I make pysanky eggs. And, of course I have to make a card and box to go with it to give it away.

  5. A fun fact? Hmmm….I usually don’t watch tv, but it’s always turned on for background noise. Most of the time, it’s on “The Golden Girls“ or “The New Adventures of Old Christine”.

  6. Not too many fun facts about myself…cleaning is a stress reliever for me. One would think I have a very clean house, but not so much.

  7. The first greeting cards I made were when I was a teenager using leftover construction paper (the colors no one wanted for school projects), plain white typing paper, magazines, cereal boxes, and Crayola markers. Now I get to use all kinds of fancy card-making supplies bought with my own money!

  8. Fun fact..I was not an indoor plant person (couldn’t keep them alive no matter what). Then I was gifted one and it refused to die. I now have 14 plants and they are all thriving.

  9. Not only do I make cards but, I started quilting about a year ago. Being creative is so much fun, no matter how you do it!

  10. I currently have purple hair. I don’t remember the last time my hair was its natural color. It’s been lilac & pink mermaid ombré, white blonde, and turquoise over the last couple years.

  11. I assisted a Marine Mammal rescue to monitor and keep watch over a resting seal on the Jersey Shore until the seal was ready to re enter the ocean!

  12. In addition to my love of paper crafting and making cards, I also like sewing and fabric. For the last few years, I’ve been making my own gnomes out of felt and fleece. Most of them, I’ve given away his gifts, but I’ve even sold a few on Etsy!

  13. So cute! Fun fact, I’m obsessed with succulents, during the pandemic I started collecting and caring for a handful, propagating has turned them into a mini nursery that my husband built wonderful stands for them!

  14. My fun thing is about my daughter. She and her dog compete in agility competitions, and they have qualified for nationals! I am her “pit crew” and help out with walks, potty breaks, and treats.

  15. I have so many hobbies. First since childhood is origami, later teenage years starting with crocheting, beading project and since 2015 with card making. Love all these hobbies.

  16. I’m an origamist and book binder, so I love making things with the intent of giving them away. I’ve also sold and taught my work, but I enjoy just making more. Card making is a lot like that. It’s great to think of the recipient while I work. That’s the best!

  17. I taught high school mathematics for 40 years. It was so fun – I loved doing it! Now in retirement I travel and make cards.

  19. I have been practicing my drawing again. First time in a long time. Also learning Procreate and digital illustration.

  20. I love to make my own piñatas. I started making them when I was a middle schooler for my nieces and nephews. Now I make one every year for our family reunion.

  21. I love to encourage friends to make cards, and I love it when they come over to scrapbook or make cards and chat.

  22. Such cute sets! I love the porcupines and the rainbows!
    I started card making when my daughter was in preschool. I thought it would be fun to make party invitations and little gift items like bookmarks for her and her school friends! That was in 1986 or ’87…..

  23. I love to visit antique shops and second hand stores to find interesting things to repurpose into planters. So many “finds” can become great container gardens for both inside and outside the house. I also love Lego kits! My biggest Lego project (so far!) was building the Home Alone house! It’s absolutely adorable – even has moving parts and a light-up feature!

  24. I started making cards when my daughter was a baby. My husband bought me a Cricut. I’m sure he wasn’t aware of what that would turn into…an entire room full of supplies!

  25. I love crafting. I have been crafting for many years. Sewing, quilting, crocheting, scrapbooking, card making, etc.

  26. These card creations are cute! Something fun about myself, I really enjoy watching videos on YouTube of people crafting, it gives me ideas for my own crafts or shows me a new way to do something. And it’s fun to watch together with my kid because then she wants to craft with me.

  27. Such cute card!! I love the creative process whether I’m decorating my home, creating holiday displays or making cards.

  32. I have lots of hobbies (gardening, card making, cooking, doing puzzles) and my hubby has none. I need to find him a hobby so he will stop complaining about the cost of mine!

  33. Fun fact: I was a competitive figure skater. Still love ice skating, but need new skates since my feet have grown after having kids, lol! Love the cute unicorns!

  34. I have a loud laugh. One of my bosses, years ago before I retired, gave me a ‘laughing pillow’ to laugh into so everybody down the hall wouldn’t hear me! Bahahaha! Thanks for the chance to win – your DT inspiration samples are (as always) amazing! <3

  35. Supercute inspiration work!
    And something fun about me….I’m a supermessy crafter! I bring out piles of supplies but I always tidy up between projects.

  36. A fun fact about me, I took a year off work when I was 30 to travel around the world and travelled through Southeast Asia, India, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, and North America (including a Caribbean Cruise). Best year of my life before meeting my husband and before we had kids. 🙂

  37. As an extra addiction (except to Lawn Fawn) I also collect santas. I got about 1100 items that I pull out each year for Christmas

  38. My first Lawn Fawn stamp set was bought for me by my best friend over ten years ago because she knew I liked cute woodland creatures. About four years ago my kids were getting old enough that I got back into crafting and rediscovered/became an addict. I shared the addiction with her and now Lawn Fawn is primarily collected favorite stamp brand too.

  39. My late mother-in-law introduced me to stamping the year I graduated from college. I started working in a rubber stamp store that same year…and I worked for the brother of a major stamp company owner (Personal Stamp Exchange). I have been a stamp collector all these years and see the pandemic as having a silver lining — that I found the online cardmaking community! LOVE this group of people!

  43. Fun fact certified scuba diver, and at one time when younger was a certified rescue replier, firefighter level one and EMTB.

  44. Fun facts: I didn’t learn to swim or ride a bike until I was in my 30’s. I wanted to learn both before my kids did, so I took swim lessons when my son was three and my husband took me to a school parking lot for bicycling about a year after that. 👍🏼

  46. I was a synchronized swimmer throughout junior and senior high school along with my first year in college.

  47. Fun Fact: I put jokes in my cards with a scratch off sticker to hide the answers.

I once sent a card out without a joke and boy did I hear about it. lol.

  48. Thanks for all the inspiration. Fun fact about me is I skipped 4th grade; I was sent to 5th grade when I finished 3rd grade.

  51. So many fun things here! The only fun thing I can think to share is that half the year (October – April) I volunteer for the Audubon and I watch eagles to see where/if they’re nesting, raising babies, and if the young survive. I check about 20 nests once or twice a month, and it’s an over 100mi round trip!

  52. I think the Sometimes Life is Prickly set will surely lift someone’s spirits. Something fun about me is that I started college at the age of 16. (Not a genius – life circumstances just worked out that that’s when I started.)

  53. A fun thing about me is I took Mandarin classes at a local junior college at age 60 years. The teacher told th class I was a life-long learner.

    I am a hoarder of many things! – paper, bottles, stickers, enamel pins, notebooks, bags and cute mini soft toys! Cannot resist!

  62. When I have a hobby, I go overboard. I buy all the things. I need a house just to store all my stuff for my hobbies. 😂

  63. I love creating cards with my best friend. I have way to many supplies and stamps but can’t pick out any to get rid of.

  64. I restarted making cards after a 15 year break after seeing and being inspired by your fun images and your how-to videos. LOVE your stamps, dies, stencils, and foil plates.

  71. I rescue homeless cats and they love to hang out with me when I make cards. This is silly but sometimes I even make up songs & sing to them when I’m crafting. These stamp sets are adorable. It’s nice to have stamps to make a I’m sorry cards. You don’t see that theme very often. That porcupine is so cute too!

  72. I love to garden and grow flowers. It seems so amazing that a beautiful flower can grow from a tiny seed. I marvel every time a seed sprouts!
