It’s a Hoot with The Card Concept Challenge #95

Hello Everybody!

We are thrilled you could join us for a brand new challenge at The Card Concept! Our inspiration this week is “Owl Cherish Our Friendship,”  and the beautiful creations from our design team are quite a hoot! You can get all the details and link up your owl Inspired friendship card over at The Card Concept blog right here: http://thecardconcept.blogspot.com

Since I named my blog, Crimson Owl Creations, it’s clear that I LOVE owls! Cute and cuddly, or fierce and majestic, owls are magnificent hunters, and an important balance in our eco system. These wide-eyed owls inspired me to create a card featuring owls having fun!

I added a fun little surprise too! To create a raised look and feel to the word “hoot,” I cut out 4 letters each of white, and light, medium, and dark orange and carefully adhered them to the back of each letter before placing it onto my card. It gives it a fun spot of color!

Now it’s your turn! Show us your cutest friendship owls, and link it up over at The Card Concept!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

I started out by working on a cute bicycle card, but then I became “inspired” by thinking of other kinds of wheels, and how I could use this bright color palette! I made the cute little red and white camper, and added it to a majestic purple mountain and the row of yellow trees. A few bears have dropped by to say hello!

There’s so much to see over at The Card Concept, and more great inspiration and ideas from our very amazing Design Team too! We’d love to see how you will be inspired!

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!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

I love those beautiful, pink flowers that remind me of Japanese cherry blossoms! I wanted to capture all that pink and blue in my Clean and Layered card. I love using 3D and layered dies to create beautiful texture and dimension.
