The Card Concept 33

**I have two posts running today at the same time....if you are looking for my Taylored Expressions post, CLICK HERE or just scroll down!**

Today is a new challenge at The Card Concept, and this week we are using an awesome photo as our inspiration!  I've traded places with another designer on the team, and am now part of the clean & graphic style!  I hope that you will join in with us, creating with your signature style, or trying out a new one!

The styles are explained HERE.

I was inspired by the colors, and the linear nature of the patterns used in the photo when creating my card!  Here is what came of it: 
Instructions:
  1. Make A2 card from white cardstock.
  2. Stamp the origami map across the middle in grey ink.
  3. Stamp the heart in magenta to the United States portion of the map.
  4. Cut a 3/8" strip of white cardstock, then stamp the sentiment to it.
  5. Cut banner edges to each end of the sentiment strip.
  6. Adhere the sentiment to the bottom of the map with foam dots.
  7. Embellish with enamel dots to finish.

The Challenge #29

Hi there, blog friends!  I am guest creating at The Challenge blog this month, and today marks the first challenge in April!


I used some new products from the My Mind's Eye "On Trend" collection in conjunction with this fun & simple sketch!  This card isn't very stamp oriented or artistic in nature...I just let the scrapbooking product speak for itself.  :)  Here is what came of it:
Instructions:
  1. Make A2 card from floral patterned paper.
  2. Cut a strip of gold foil confetti paper & adhered to the left side.
  3. Zig-zag stitch along the seam of the two papers.
  4. Adhere the journal card to the front with foam dots.
  5. Tie a double bow from twine, thread through a chipboard button & add to the front.
  6. Layer a sentiment strip to the front with dimensional adhesive.
  7. Trim the prongs off two brads & embellish the front with them to finish.
