Catherine’s Cute Donut Inspired Give It a Whirl!

Catherine‘s creative box of donuts card is so clever! She made it interactive by adding a cute Give It a Whirl “donut”!

This square card design starts with Large Stitched Square Stackables to cut the “donut box” top. Catherine chose the pretty striped paper from Rainbow Ever After 6×6 pack, adding acetate to the box “window”.

She used Give It a Whirl and Give It a Whirl Scalloped Add-On to make a giant donut! And then she created a stencil for the icing with the Art Supplies paint splatter. She also added details by starting the sentiment on a Hearts and Stars Skinny Tag.

Open the box of donuts to find Donut Worry donuts stamped in the background in Jellyfish ink. Now you can “give it a whirl” and see a fun picture emerge!

The Give It a Whirl reveals the cutest little scene inside! Catherine inked the background with Brick Stencil for some texture. Then she arranged a donut from Sweet Friends with mice from A Creature was Stirring and Virtual Friends Add-On. The jar of sprinkles is from Sprinkled with Joy and the sentiment is also from Sweet Friends!

Thank you so much for sharing this brilliant card with us, Catherine! I love it so much!

“Love You with All My Art”: Art Supplies Valentines with Grace

Grace joins us today to share a beautiful set of Valentine cards featuring Art Supplies!

This card set is as beautiful as it is clever and creative! Grace used the fun Art Supplies Lawn Cuts set so brilliantly!

For this card Grace started with a Scalloped Rectangle panel. Then she used a heart from Scalloped Slimline with Hearts: Portrait as a stencil to add three pink hearts. She used the hearts to anchor the sweet art supplies groupings, then she added the Henry’s ABCs letters to spell out “art”. For the rest of the sentiment, she used Let’s Toast.

For the water jar, Grace colored the water line with Copic markers on the back side of the vellum jar piece. Then she used a thin line of glue to attach another jar piece cut from white cardstock colored the same way. The top is left open to slip the paint brush between the pieces.

For this design, Grace assembled the Art Supplies on a heart layered on a Lacy Heart. This time she used the sentiment from Let’s Toast, but she altered the word “tart” to say “art”. She used holographic cardstock for the paint tubes, adding the little hearts from Heart Shaker Gift Tag.

For the glitter jar Grace sandwiched Sparkle Glaze and Prisma glitter between the Copic colored cardstock jar and an acetate jar. She used a very fine line of glue tube around the perimeter to glue these pieces together.

Your cards are absolutely adorable, Grace! Thank you so much for inspiring us today!

Karin’s Watercolor Ugly and Bright Card and a Clever Swatch Book!

September Inspiration Week is just around the corner, and we are so excited! We will be highlighting all the fun holiday sets from the Fall & Winter 2022 Release! Be sure to join us for Design Team Inspiration, intro videos and daily giveaways! See you on the 14th for the Big Giveaway!

Today Karin joins us to share a lovely watercolor card featuring Ugly and Bright. She also created a handy watercolor swatch book project.

Karin’s simply beautiful Christmas card features a sweater from Ugly and Bright. First, she stamped it with Distress Ink in Antique Linen before adding pretty water coloring! And then she layered it on a Lacy Heart Stackable which she also water colored.

She spelled out Noel with Henry’s ABCs, stamping the letters with the sweater to coordinate with the focal image. To finish this lovely design, Karin then attached the sweater and letters to a Fancy Scalloped Rectangle.

Karin is an accomplished watercolor artist, check out her artwork on Instagram HERE. She created a handy portable swatch book to take along on her Plein Air painting adventures. Using a Mini Notebook and Art Supplies Lawn Cuts she gave her travel palette sweet details!

Then inside the book she used the paint tube die to swatch the different colors of watercolor paint she uses. Here she has room for making notes.

This lovely design would be perfect for creating a card for a friend who loves to watercolor! Simply use Gotta Have Gingham Rainbow paper for the background. Then add the pretty arrangement of Art Supplies on a Lacy Heart Stackable!

Thank you so much for your beautiful inspiration today, Karin! I love your wonderful watercolor projects!
