The Flower Challenge: Pink and Grey

Hello Crafty Friends!

I have discovered a brand new challenge that looked so inviting, I just had to join in! Are you playing along with The Flower Challenge? This week, the colors are pink and grey, and the challenge involves making a project with a flower as the main focus! Easy Breezy when there are so many beautiful flower dies and stamps out there. Pink and grey is a favorite combination for me too. You can get all the details and link up your flower creations over at The Flower Challenge right here: http://theflowerchallenge.blogspot.com/2019/01/the-flower-challenge-28-colour-pink-grey.html

The Card Concept 107: Rainbow Cupcakes

Hello Crafty Friends!

I am so glad that you have joined us today for our newest challenge at The Card Concept, Rainbow Cupcakes! We have a super cute inspiration photo for you this week that you are going to love! Take a look right here: http://thecardconcept.blogspot.com

There are so many ways to be inspired by this tower of colorful cupcakes! First off, I decided to play around with different ways to make a dark background with a little texture. I used a die cut cover plate in the deep blue, then cut a second piece in white and moved it off center to make a white edge. Then I used a black panel piece behind it, and voila! I got this awesome shadow effect in black and white. A few sloppy, colorful, run away from the humdrum pile of doughnuts later, and I have a colorful bold and graphic design, with a hint of the freestyle!

We can’t wait to see what you’ll create! Show us your rainbow cupcakes, or doughnuts, or candy kisses! Find some great ideas and inspiration from our design team too, and link up your card over at The Card Concept!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Welcome Back to The Card Concept #106

Hello Friends!

Welcome back to a brand new season with The Card Concept! We are so happy you are joining us today that we are celebrating with a party for Challenge #106, a Pink Party! You can get all the details, link up your Pink Party Creations, and see more ideas and inspiration over on The Card Concept blog right here: http://thecardconcept.blogspot.com

I felt so inspired by our inspiration photo this week! I wanted to capture those big, bright blooms in the vivd shades of pink, so I created this Clean and Layered card. Instead of using black, I selected a very dark navy blue for the circle, which pairs beautifully with those rosy shades. How will you be inspired?

Thanks so much for joining us today!
