Grateful for You


Hello! And welcome to the Card Concept's new inspiration,


...and it's all about pastels!


Love to do shakers, and just imagine what the recipient's face is like when they open the
envelope, and get to interact with their card. 

Play along for a chance to become our guest designer! We love seeing what you do
with the photo and card styles.
Thanks for visiting, and happy crafting!

Oh Frap!


Did you all know the 2017 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is happening?
I just don't miss playing along with Amy and the group and all those
generous sponsors


I never know when I'll need a belated birthday card, and I love the AI chicken set 
featuring the art of Bonnie Krebs! Miss Henny Penny is holding her cut, 'O Frap',
and a little note at the bottom explains her bird brain.
Tags from Reverse Confetti.

Art Impressions and Reverse Confetti are both Super Sponsors of the Hop!
Thanks to all for participating!

Grab a cuppa and join in the fun! Hop lasts through Friday.

Blessed Autumn card


Dawn McVey has a video that captured my card making heart, on
Nichole's blog. MIM this week celebrates mixing the PTI Florals.
Hooray! I love all things floral, and ALL the florals at Papertrey.
Time to pull out the fall stamp sets. And with Dawn's advice on 'how to', 
combine a few and celebrate this time of year!


I have to tell you, I was late ordering Beautiful Berries: Autumn, just received it a few days ago.
But like all the sets that shine a light on the beauty of this season, I'm won over.


As Dawn advised, I collected several of my Autumn stamps, deciding which ones to combine.
Twig Wreath helped to 'ground' the different sets. 
Simple Sunflower hasn't seen ink in a while, but I liked the size with the berry branch.
Also liked the look of elements in Paper Clippings: Thankful For You Details.
My sentiment is from Inspired: Blessed
Thank you for visiting this morning. Check out Dawn's video here:

Heaven & Nature Sing


It's time again for Create Along With Us. Our chance to case the 
beautiful new stamps and dies and the creative genius of the PTI designers.
This month, Nichole's striking tag caught my eye.

Definitely going in the cart!
Nichole did several things that were jaw dropping; the colors, the candy striped circle,
Scarlett Jewel bg, and some glossy accents on the berries.


My tag came from Don't Forget to Write
Double Edge Banner
Sentiment: Christmas Faith
Lots of Christmas greenery and bow from Tinsel & Tags.
And, of course, Glossy Accents. 
There's a few raindrops too.


I'm excited that I have a Christmas card done!
I think I only have 99 to go! 

Have a wonderful day!

Just a Little Note


Make It Monday, and Lexi, this week, with a great tutorial on
repeating small images on our cards.
She shows several examples, among them repeating a small image on a punched backing.


I made a card set using the bee from Monthly Moments Inked: Everyday Symbols.
I punched the scallop circle from a Martha Stewart punch, and the smaller circle (1") is 
a Fiskars Punch.


I colored my bees with copics and added Wink of Stella to their little wings.


Sentiment: Note Niblets
Noted Scallop A1 Size card die

Such a quick and easy way to do a card or note card set!
Thanks, Lexi!

We had a nice long summer break, and hopefully you're ready for September's inspiration.

Clean and Layered is what I'd call this card.

I can't wait to see!

Slider card


video
Hi! I'd like to introduce you to a new slider die from Memory Box. 
Honestly, never did a slider card before, but with this die set, I'm hooked!
Have you ever made one?
This die set makes it so easy!

And, it's my first video! (Thanks to son Ryan, who filmed while I operated the slider!)

I put it together with a new stamp set from Poppy called 'Wintertime Fairies.'


Your could win a stamp set of your choice, and these versatile sliders by leaving a 
comment on Poppy's blog. Be sure to see what each of the designers do with this fun new die set.

Check out how all the details on the Poppystamps blog, here:
