Harvest Adventures with The Card Concept

Welcome to this week’s challenge at The Card Concept! Our new theme is Harvest Adventures, and we have got a wonderful inspiration photo to remind you of a country Autumn down on the farm! That’s certainly what it reminded ME of, old pickup trucks, pumpkins, and bales of hay. What Harvest Adventures will you discover?

All you need to do to enter is to create a project inspired by our Harvest Adventures photo, and link it up over on The Card Concept blog. You can also find more great ideas and inspiration from our adventurous design team too! Take a look over at The Card Concept right here https://thecardconcept.blogspot.com

I found my inspiration in that old red pick-up truck, the rich Autumn colors, and the pumpkins! Our sweet little piggy is along for the ride, and the perfect addition for my Clean and Layered card. What will you create?

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Long Summer Days with The Card Concept

Hello Crafty Friends!

I am so glad you have dropped in today to celebrate our last challenge of the season with The Card Concept! This week, the theme is Long Summer Days! What could be a better way to spend a long summer day than with a hot coffee on a cool summer beach early in the morning? That sounds like heaven to me! I used soft, pale beachy colors for my Freestyle Collage card. Perhaps this little collection of sea creatures have dropped by for a cuppa?

Anchors Aweigh with The Card Concept

Hello Friends,

It’s Anchors Aweigh with The Card Concept this week, as we bring you beautiful nautical Americana. I love our inspiration photo this week. These red, white, and blue collections always remind me of bright New England cottages and the Atlantic Coast. You can find more great inspiration and ideas, and enter your Anchors Aweigh project over at The Card Concept blog right here http://The blog permalink (without spaces, of course) is: https:// thecardconcept. blogspot. com/2021/05/ the-card-concept-156-anchors-aweigh. html

I LOVE all things nautical, and was drawn to the blue and white sailboat pillow. It’s a great color combination, navy blue and white, and I wanted to capture that in a super easy breezy CAS design. I did the sailboat and seagull in bright, crisp, white and when I laid it out against the navy blue background, I loved it! I am going to send this card to my Dad for Father’s Day, because I know he will love this little boat just as much as I do.

Now it’s your turn! We can’t wait to see what you’ll create and how you will be inspired by these image and these colors. Create a project, inspired by our photo, and link it up over on The Card Concept.

Happy Mother’s Day with The Card Concept

Hello Friends,

It’s time to celebrate MOMS of all shapes and sizes with this month’s challenge from The Card Concept, Happy Mother’s Day! Take a look at our beautiful inspiration photo today!

There are so many beautiful elements to choose from in this photo, I didn’t know where to start. I do know, however, that any mom would love this bright and cheerful springtime bouquet. I chose to focus on the color palette from a few bright blooms, and the pretty blue and white tableware. So many of us are unable to celebrate with our moms with year, so instead, we must think about them every day, and send them our love from a distance.

Now it’s your turn to create a card or project in any style and link it up over at The card Concept. This design is Clean and Layered, but you may be inspired by mixed media, or Shabby Chic and Vintage, or Classy and Elegant. Show us what you can do, and include our link over to The Card Concept https://thecardconcept.blogspot.com
