Design Team Inspiration

The design team has made the most amazing samples! We also have a video at the end showcasing some fun ways of using these fresh new sets! Remember to click on the person’s name to see all of the details and then leave these wonderful DT girls some comment love!

Elena‘s Build-A-Gumball Machine is so bright and shiny! She made it a shaker using the colorful gumballs with seed beads to fill globe! I love how she framed her simple design with Rainbow Ever After Jack 12 x 12 paper. And then she finished the card with the perfect punny sentiment from Wood You Be Mine!

Elise‘s fabulous design combines All the Smiles with Pint-Sized Patterns Summertime and a greeting from Give It a Whirl Messages: Friends! The colorful balloons with the cute smiling faces make this card so charming!

I love Audrey‘s sweet pastel Build-A-Gumball Machine! She layered the pretty pink gumball machine on a Radiant Heart Backdrop, then she added adorable Bubbles of Joy mice!

Mindy also made a shaker card with the Build-A-Gumball Machine! She used Peacock, Mermaid and Silver Metallic cardstock for the machine, filling it with colorful confetti! Then she brought in lots of cuteness with mice from Sew Very Mice and You Autumn Know. Her sweet sentiment is from Sweet Smiles!

Latisha‘s amazing birthday card focuses on the balloons in the new All the Smiles set! She combined the balloons with Giant Make a Wish and the new Bunting Background Stencils to create a very cheerful design!

Marine used bright, happy colors for her gumball machine shaker card! She layered a rainbow striped Pint-Sized Patterns Summertime panel with an Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot Background Hot Foil panel before adding the gumball machine on top! I love that she colored the Offset Sayings: Birthday greeting in colors to match, it’s so cheery!

Grace created an amazing shaker card with so many gorgeous colors! She stenciled the background with the new Draped Ribbons Stencil, then she added lots of cuteness with critters from Really High Five and Butterfly Kisses!

Grace filled her shaker with pastel gumballs and Chunky Glitter to make her card “extra sweet”!

Rebecca’s gumballs are so adorable stamped with All the Smiles! She mixed pretty Pint-Sized Patterns Summertime papers for the background and then she added fun detail with a Diagonal Stripes Border!

A few years ago, when I asked our oldest grandson who was turning 10 if he was too old for us to sing happy birthday to him, he replied, “I don’t think I’ll ever be too old for that.” That makes me smile too. A huge thank you to you and the design team for another amazing release week.
