The Card Concept – Challenge #2


What an amazing response we had to our very first Card Concept challenge two weeks ago! The entries were outstanding! I'm so glad to see that so many stampers are joining in the fun. 

This week the challenge is to use TEXTURE in your card, and do it in one of the styles explained HERE. As you've probably guessed, my style is Clean & Layered. 


I was inspired by the red and white of the house for my card, and chose this stamp because the tree trunk reminded me of the wood texture of the roof. For my texture I embossed two different size dots on my background papers. I also colored & cut out extra hearts and added them to the tree with dimensionals. 

You must check out the other designers' creations, oh my they did not disappoint!!

  1. Kerin,
    Love this card! The layout, the wonderful reds and that tree trunk. Great idea to use the roof as inspiration. I have always thought of big trees by a home as somewhat the protector – with leaves made of hearts, even better.

  2. Wow. Do you know how to color, or what? The shading on your heart tree could not be any better…such a cute idea for this week’s photo and texture challenge. The polka dots in the two different sizes was a great choice to show texture. Very pretty card Kerin.

  3. This card is beautiful! I love the layers, textures, and colors. You did such a good job coloring that beautiful image.

  4. Okay… so I’m thinking that you must have earned tons of gold stars on your coloring projects in grade school! And, I would bet that your teachers were just as amazed as I am with your talent! The shading on the hearts is gorgeous (you’re a mighty awesome fussy cutter too). Can hardly wait to see more of your creations Kerin 🙂
