The Card Concept #82: Retro Holiday

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to The Card Concept Challenge #82, Retro Holiday! We have got a beautiful inspirational photo for you this week, filled with shiny retro ornaments and glossy colors from our childhood! You can get all the details and link up your Retro Holiday project over at The Card Concept Blog right here: http://thecardconcept.blogspot.com/

I love the metallic shine and the pretty color palette of this retro wreath! I’d love to create one of these myself from old holiday ornaments. I found my inspiration in just one ornament, shiny and pink and very merry! I used shiny foil papers to create an elegant Clean and Layered card that will slip easily into an envelope with a nice gift card too!

Thanks so much for joining me today!

The Card Concept Challenge #78: Pastel Party

Hello Everybody!

It’s time for another awesome challenge at The Card Concept, Pastel Party! All you have to do is create a project in one of our featured styles, or mix and match and make your own, and link it up over at The Card Concept blog right here: http://thecardconcept.blogspot.com/

You are going to love this month’s inspiration photo! Take a Look!

There are so many fun elements to be inspired by! I wanted to do something fun with that little sweater, so I pulled out my Poppystamps Christmas Sweater! When hubbie and I were on vacation back in Wisconsin, we stopped at one of my favorite crafty stores, Let’s Create, in Wisconsin Rapids, WI! Frankie is an amazing crafter and savvy business owner, and she has a fully stocked Poppystamps collection. How could I resist? I threw the Christmas Sweater in my basket and hubbie told me, “There’s no way you are going to make a card with that ugly sweater!” I don’t think he quite gets the Christmas Sweater craze, right? So I had my little sweater all ready to go for Challenge #78, Pastel Party! I used Christmas Sweater and Clothesline Hearts from Poppystamps to create this bright pastel CAS Freestyle Collage card!

We’d love to see what you will create! Link up your Pastel Party projects to The Card Concept Blog right here: http://thecardconcept.blogspot.com/

The Card Concept Challenge #77: Weathered Floral

Hello Everybody!

I have finally returned home from my many travels and am so excited to be a part of the The Card Concept team this year! Our first project for the season has opened, and are so excited to see what all of you will be creating! Our brand new challenge is the lovely Weathered Floral inspiration shown here. You can get all the details and play along with The Card Concept right here: http://thecardconcept.blogspot.com/

I was really inspired by that basket of flowers, and the way they fall to the side. It reminds me of a doorway in France! I used those elements to create a Freestyle Collage card, which is made using random elements in any style.  Now it’s your turn! We’d love to see what you will create!

Thanks so much for joining us today!
