Paper Crafts Magazine Presents: A Card Style Mystery Blog Hop

CardStyle.2010_CoverWEB

The latest special issue from Paper Crafts Magazine, Card Style, is now available. Like I said before, this issue is amazing! The concept is; each section of the magazine has cards in a particular style. Cards which are brilliantly designed and spot-on in their genre. After reading through the issue the other night, I am totally inspired and very proud to be a part of this issue (not to mention being on the cover!! eeee! :))

Because each project had to be exactly in each style, it was a challenge to create projects! A good challenge though, because it made me think about each and every element I placed on a card. I guess that made it easy to edit what I could and couldn't use. :)

Classy and Elegant Card

Here is my project to share with you today. My style (at least for today :)) is Classy and Elegant. I definitely gravitate towards this style-classy colors with timeless design elements. Think Pottery Barn and Martha Stewart.

The card started out with wood paper for the background. LOVE that! Then I die cut a pendant shape from black cardstock and placed it along the left hand side. I trimmed the excess away. Then I proceeded to use several left-over smaller accent pieces that came from the original cut, so I could create a damask-looking image. Black pearls were added to places they just seemed to fit perfectly. To keep the classy look, the sentiment was stamped in black ink.

Wood, pearls, black, scripted font, damask. Absolutely timeless elements. Each one staying within its style.

Ready for a different style? Because here is the super duper fun part of today, the Mystery Blog Hop! I am giving you a link to another project, from an amazing designer, in another style. Consider it research for your next card! :) Click the photo below or click HERE to continue on the hop.

And be sure to visit Moxie Fab World and Paper Crafts Connection. On each site is a photo of half of the prize, valued over $350, that you have the chance to win.

Hello!
Your card is fabulous! I think I like all styles (except perhaps shabby... well,some shabby cards are great though!). Any card style will do for inspiration! At my beginning in card making I think I was using the clean and simple style, but now that I have more stuff in my scraproom to choose from, mycards are more elaborate! Couldn't say what my style is now! Of course, I would love my cards to be classy and elegant!

Noreen said...

Your card is not only classy and elegant, it is clean and simple. Very nice.

quinn57 said...

That's a beautiful and inspirational card. My favourite kind to use is clean and simple.Sometimes cards seem very overwhelming to me with so many style cues that they appear too busy or crowded - each element clamouring for attention. To me, simple is the most elegant and lets the recipient fill in "the blanks"...does that make sense?

Karen said...

A simply gorgeous card. Thanks for sharing.

Jessica Wekenman said...

Absolutely gorgeous card! I look to all cards for inspiration! I wish my style were more vintage/ shabby, so many fun things to add and do to those cards, yet all my cards seem to fall somewhere between fun/cute and clean/graphic!

narutopenguingirl said...

I LOVE your card! I would like to make cards in the clean and graphic style, though I have a hard time leaving blank spaces :)

I definitely lean towards a classy and elegant style, and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, that card you made!! I am so in love with it, that I just subscribed to your blog so I can get more inspiration from you :)

Sometimes I want to be more clean and simple, but I can't get away from bling and ribbon so it leans toward the shabby chic, too!

Angela Fehr said...

Hi Kim! Your card is timeless and classic, for sure!
I would love to be able to define my style - I like to think of it as shabby chic meets funky retro. And I wish I had the knack for classic and simple - my simple cards always just look naked. :)

Jeni said...

Beautiful card! I love black/cream look.

Jessrose21 said...

Awesome card! I get inspiration from all styles. I enjoy seeing any style if it's done well, but the shabby/vintage style seems to be the most difficult style for people to do as I've seen it overdone a lot. But when it's done well, I love it!

Barbara said...

I am a clean and simple kind of girl but am stepping it up a little bit with more detail. I stick to bold colors on white though. Just love that look
