Card Concept #19 - Color Challenge

Welcome to The Card Concept. 
Welcome to The Card Concept! Before we get to our challenge, I am sad to announce that Ardyth has decided to step down from the Card Concept team. She will be greatly missed! Thank you for your hard work and dedication, Ardyth! This is her last challenge with us, so please make sure to visit her blog and to leave her some love!



This week we have a theme for you to try! You must use the theme and create your card in one of the styles of the designers. 

The styles are explained HERE.




Deanna Dean

Keep it CAS by stamping in the corner so you keep all that white space.

Sue Trembeth

Stamping over your sentiment draws the eye to the image and the sentiment.



Ardyth Percy-Robb


Choose a sentiment and image with similar line-width to keep your design unified!

Kristie Larsen

For me graphic = bold! Pick one graphic stamp and apply pigment inks for full colour.



Kay Miller


Layer up some pretty fall leaves to create an adorable little treat tote to fill with fall goodies!

Kim Heggins

I was inspired by the beautiful colors and the leaves. I layered my leaves to give them a bit more dimension.  



Debbie Marcinkiewicz

I was inspired by the patchwork look of the colored leaves to create a 'quilt' theme, layered card by paper piecing hexagon shapes!


Mary Marsh

The colors and the autumn leaves helped shape my shabby chic creation.


LauraJane 

I saw butterflies instead of leaves among those Yummy colors!


Yoonsun Hur

I fell in love with beautiful autumn colours!



Angela Maine

Peek-a-boo panel to highlight mum and roses in autumn colors.

Cindy Lovell

I was completly inspired by the pretty leaves from the inspiration photo.

    Challenge #18 - Back to School Theme

    Welcome to The Card Concept. 

    Each week we offer up a challenge for you to try, and we hope that you will create a card in one of the styles we have offered here. 

    The team is divided into the different styles and each designer explains how they were inspired by the challenge! 


    So come and join us and try your hand at a brand new "style" of card making or work in your comfort zone, it is totally up to you!



    The styles are explained HERE.




    Laurie Willison

    For me it was all about the apples.  I love using red and the apple was my inspiration.  That and a touch of white space!  ;)


    Kim Heggins


    I let Lucy (my silhouette) do all the work on my card, very quick and easy. I was inspired by the apples in the photo and you can't think of school without the apples. 


    Geri Greening
    {on break this challenge}

    When I hear school/teacher, I automatically think of Chalkboard and Apples.





    Kerin Sylvester

    I was inspired by the entire picture, but mostly the chalkboard!

    Kristie Larsen

    I was inspired by cute red apples on the tree and pops of green.




    Narelle Farrugia 


    I was inspired by the colours in the inspiration picture for my school themed card.

    Yoonsun Hur


    I was inspired by the entire range of colours!




    My Silhouette got quite a workout with this card!

    Thank goodness my BFF had a bunch of back to school stamps!!



    Colleen Dietrich

    So many things inspired me:  chalkboard, tree, apples & colors!
    Mary Marsh

    My inspiration came from colors, chalkboard, numbers and alphabet blocks
