Welcome to The Card Concept.
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.
Meet Our Guest Designer for Challenge #10!
Hey everyone, Tracey here. Not just anyone can combine patterned papers on a card and make it look clean, layered and fabulous! It takes a designer's eye to chose just the right elements to make the card interesting but not cluttered. Ii am so excited to introduce our Clean & Layering guest designer for challenge #10, the queen of coffee herself, Amy Tsuruta!
Hi! I am a Canadian living in the lovely state of Washington. I'm a mom to 2 fabulous kids and I'm engaged to the most wonderful man! He fully supports my crafting and since his hobby is building an airplane, buying a $6 pad of paper is nothing compared to his shopping list! I've been crafting forever but signed up for a scrapbooking company in 2001, things changed quickly when I was introduced to Stampin' Up in 2002. I started a gallery at Splitcoast Stampers in 2005 and my blog in 2007. I'm a challenge junkie that loves to use colors & patterns in my projects.
Clean & Simple
Clean & Graphic
Did you notice the pretty coral colored coffee cup in the photo? I love pairing a single bold color with a clean & graphic design!
Clean & Layering
Guest Designer-Clean & Layered
I was inspired by the colors and the boldness of the graphics. I brought the neutral background of the print in by using the cork border.
I was inspired by the pink in the coffee pot and the brown background.
Hmmm coffee - this is the way I love to start my mornings. I couldn't resist adding two latte cups to my card!
