Fusion Card Challenge: The Harbor

Hello Everybody!

Today I am FINALLY playing along with this week’s new challenge from Fusion, The Harbor! There’s still a (very) little time left to join in on the fun, but you better hurry! Take a look at the inspiration photo, then head on over to the Fusion blog to link up your Harbor-inspired card right here: http://fusioncardchallenge.blogspot.com/2018/05/fusion-harbour.html

There are so many elements that I just love about this photo! The lighthouse, the colors, the  boats, the dark sky, the bright red mooring rings, it just all looks so cool. Here in South Florida, it’s been raining hard for DAYS now, and more is on the way, so my harbor card had to be about a stormy day. I mostly used elements from the photo, playing with color, and didn’t do much about the sentiment. I guess that’s just my style. I love blank cards, which allows me to write anything I like on the inside.

Thanks so much for joining me today!

Fusion Challenge: Pink Phone

Hello Everyone!

Today I am playing along with this fun challenge from Fusion, Pink Phone! I had a lot of fun trying to figure out how to use this charming pink phone booth, from Poppystamps! I tried to create a little fusion by using the colors from the phone, the receiver, the phone booth, and the corner element and stripes from the sketch. There’s still a little time to play along and link up your Pink Phone project over at Fusion, right here:  http://fusioncardchallenge.blogspot.com/2018/04/fusion-pink-phone.html

I love the pink, white, and black combination, and the little touch of green seemed to bring the whole look together!

The Card Concept #92: Bold Bloom

Hello Everybody!

Thanks so much for joining us today and taking a look at the newest inspiration from The Card Concept, Bold Bloom! This inspiration photo provides us with a beautiful stark contrast between the red and the white, and we can’t wait to see how you will be inspired! You can get all the details and link up your Bold Bloom idea over at The Card Concept right here:  http://thecardconcept.blogspot.com

 

When I first thought of a concept for my Clean and Layered card, I planned on making the big flower red, and the bird white. But then I flipped the script, and made the bird a bright red, and the flowers in shades of white with touches of gold, to mimic the sun coming in through the shades. I then cut about a dozen wooden “planks” from some pretty, light woodgrain paper, and used it for my background. The lines of the wooden “slats” don’t photograph very well, but they give a background a unique texture and look when you hold the card in your hand.

Now it’s your turn! Create a pretty Bold Bloom card and link it up on The Card Concept Blog! While you’re there, you’ll find even more inspiration from our design team too!
