Our Fawnie friend and awesome instructor, Jenn Shurkus, has been busy planning and prepping classes for this Fall using our new Fall/Winter release! She took a little break to join us today to share her adorable rainbow card featuring lots of cute ocean critters!
Jenn used Snowy Backdrop to create the look of water with bubbles! Such a fun and clever addition and a great way to get more out of your die collection! The sentiment is from our Simply Sentiments set!
I just love the rainbow colors of all of these ocean critter cuties!
Thank you so much for inspiring us today with your brilliant card, Jenn! Be sure to check out Jenn’s class schedule to register for her upcoming classes!

Today we have a video tutorial by our newest collaborator, Mindy! She shows how she used alcohol ink and Yupo paper to make gorgeous ocean backgrounds! Then she created two fabulous window cards using Porthole Frames and lots of fun ocean themed sets! You can watch the video below or click HERE to watch it at our YouTube channel.

Lea created thismountain-themed mood-board when she started planning Layton’s nursery, it has a special place in her heart.
Our Fawnie friend, Lynette, has created a special card just for today’s blog hop! She was inspired by the cute woodland animal stuffies and the beautiful color palette to make a sweet card with an encouraging message and a pocket to hold a gift card!
Now on to the blog hop info – here is a link list with all of the stops along the hop! Please be sure to leave some love for the thoughtfulness & generosity that these companies, stores & designers have shown for this Card Drive & Fundraising effort.
