Week One Summer Card Camp Series – Color Challenge

By Cards

Hi all!

Today I’m excited to share a project I made in conjunction with summer card camp over at onlinecardclasses. It’s only been a few days since the camp started but I have already learned so much! I love about the technicalities to creating cards and other craft projects. In class, each week students are given a color challenge in which he or she has to use the color scheme provided to create a project.

Here is the scheme for week 1.

Here is the card I came up with using the themes and techniques used by the teachers themselves. I enjoyed learning about layering shapes and designs and how to group images. So interesting!

Hello Summer

Thanks for learning with me and stopping by!

Week Two Summer Card Camp Series – Color Challenge

By Cards

Hi All,

Wow, how quickly time has flown into the second week of card camp! We’re on to week two and once again I am fully engulfed in all the awesome designs and techniques being shared over on the class blog. I’ve got to say this was one of the best choices I made in joining this class.

Here is this week’s color combo challenge:

Here is the card I came up with. I’m super happy with the way it turned out. I can see my skills growing and aim to only get better when it comes to balance and contrast in card making.

Week Three Summer Card Camp Series – Color Challenge

By Cards

Hi All,

This weeks color challenge had me stuck. I had no clue where to begin. I created multiple cards but just wasn’t feeling that it was what I wanted to share. I went back to the drawing board multiple times and finally came up with the design below. I decided that maybe the colors reminded me more of christmas and decided to dig into some of my holiday supplies to see if there was anything that I could come up with. It was at that moment, I found a fantastic set of rub on transfers from Basic Grey.

Here is this week’s color combo:
