I love these colours together and pulled out some retired Stampin’ Up! DSP called Fan Fair DSP.  Here’s my card:

The Card Concept #2

Hey Everyone

I’m back with my second card today – this time I’m back with my card for The Card Concept where I am creating cards in the Shabby/Vintage style.  We were so thrilled that we had over 100 entries – thanks to everyone for making it an amazing first challenge!

Our challenge this week is to create a card using texture.  We’ve also provided the pic below that you can take inspiration from.

I don’t actually have any housey type images that I love, so my inspiration came from the colours that I got from the pic – Crumb Cake, Old Olive and Cajun Craze.  My texture came in the form of burlap that I felt resembled the texture of the shingled roof.  To add extra texture I embossed my hand-cut heart.  I’ve left my card sentiment-less as I didn’t think it actually needed one – it’s also nice to have some blank cards up my sleeve.  As I’m typing this post, I just realised I created a card with no stamping – that doesn’t happen very often in my world!  Here’s what I created:

Head over to the challenge and check out the gorgeous inspiration from the Design Team.  While you’re there, why don’t you link up a card?

Thanks for stopping by.

Card Concept Challenge #1

Hey Everyone

I’m a BIT excited about this post as it’s my first one designing with the amazingly talented team at The Card Concept.  I’m extremely honoured that Lesley asked me to be part of this new challenge and I want to say a huge thank you for the opportunity – if she lived on this side of the world I’d give her the biggest hug!

I’m designing along with Debbie Marcinkiewicz in the Shabby/Vintage style.  Here’s a definition of our style:

Definition:

  • the use of used, worn or inexpensive components to make stylish goods
  • distressed or sponged edges
  • old feel-antiqued
  • lots of embellishments
  • ribbons or lace
  • lots of layers

Our first challenge is a colour challenge:

I’m a huge lover of feminine florally cards (just in case you didn’t know!), so when I saw there was pink in the challenge colours I knew I wanted to create a card a girly card with pink blossoms.  The blossoms are from a Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Everything Eleanor and the leaves are my favourite from a stamp set called Summer Silhouettes. Here’s what I created:
