The Card Concept #142-Autumn Bounty

Welcome my stampy friends!
It is time for a new challenge here at the 

Look at this gorgeous photo!


The colors are so beautiful together.
That is what inspired my Clean & Layered style card.


I started my card by using a stencil. I temporarily taped the stencil to a piece of Mint Macaron card stock, and sponged Mint Macaron ink to get a tone-on-tone look. Next, I used a stitched rectangle die and die cut a panel.
I stamped the sentiment onto Very Vanilla card stock.  I used a  scallop square die and Blackberry Bliss card stock to make a frame for this panel.



I stamped the leaf images onto Very Vanilla card stock and cut them out with their matching dies. I attached the leaves with foam tape to the border strip that I had created at the bottom of the Mint Macaron panel.

The Card Concept Challenge # 147

 Hello my stampy friends!!


Welcome to another challenge here at the  Card Concept!
 I was totally in love with the flowers in the vase in this photo!
That is what inspired my card!


I stamped this pretty floral background stamp onto some water color paper with Versamark ink.
And then I heat embossed it with Rose gold embossing powder.


Next I colored the flowers with Distress inks. 


I popped the circle panel on top of the finished image with foam tape.

And finished it with a heat embossed sentiment  and a few sequins!

Farm-Tastic!

Welcome my stampy friends!!!

I am so excited!!!
I was asked to be part of the 
Winter Pictorial Design Team
for Maymay Made It!!!!



And this is my first project! 
My card today features the  
called Farm-tastic!

So cute!!!!





I stamped all of the images onto Copic friendly paper with black Memento ink. Next I colored the images with Copic markers. I fussy cut the stamped images because there are no dies with this stamp set.





I attached the images to the background, which I had sponged with Distress inks!


And for fun, I stamped a row of cows along the bottom of the inside of the card! Aren't they cute?

Hello my stampy friends!

Welcome to Fanciful Fall here at The Card Concept! 

Look at that fantastic photo inspiration for our new challenge starting today!

So fun!

The fun colors are what inspired my Clean & Layered style card today! 


I sponged some water color paper with Distress inks, then added lots of ink splats!
 


Next, I die cut  leaves from this paper, and tied them with some black twine!


I stamped the white panel with the  Quilted Hearts Background stamp in Fog ink.
And then I created a mask and sponged the oval with Speckled Egg Distress ink.
Of course, I had to add some sparkle with some clear sequins!

The Card Concept Challenge #139-Summer Harvest



Hello my stampy friends!
So glad to see you again!
 I took a break during the summer and now I am so happy to be back!
My husband and I did not travel or anything this summer, just stayed home.
I did manage to go to the beach with my sister for a few days in August, and it was heaven!

And now the summer is almost over! 
I'm looking forward to cooler days.

On to my Clean & Layered Style card....


 I was inspired by the beautiful yellow and greens in our newest Inspiration Photo

here at The Card Concept


I had recently bought this stamp set from Stampin Up called SEE THE GOOD

I fell in love with the pear images right away, and thought they would be a beautiful yellow for the photo.


I used my Misti and stamped the pears with Archival Sunflower ink. Next I added Archival Orange Blossom around the edges with an ink dauber, before stamping again. It made the pears look so realistic! I fussy cut the pears and attached them to a panel of  Whisper White card stock that had been dry embossed with a Stampin Up embossing folder called Tasteful Textures.




Im so glad to be back!

Welcome to another challenge starting today at the 


What a wonderful summer photo!
I always love a nautical scene and the colors that go with it!

That is what inspired my Inside Scene Pop-Up card:


I watched a video by the fabulously talented Jennifer McQuire showing how to create an 
Inside Scene Pop-Up card. 
Her video can be found HERE.


It is hard to tell in the photo, but the scene pops out when you open the card!!
