Celebrating The Victorian Era

Happy Friday!

It's Shabneez here today and I hope you enjoyed Kathy's challenge last week,  thanks to those of you that joined in.

It's Queen Victoria's birthday today so to celebrate I'd like to see something from her era on your cards be it a mode of transport, clothing, steampunk or you can pay homage to the Queen herself and do something regal!

Here is the inspiration from the Design Team this week:

M. A. Y. letters

Hello!
Welcome to another Friday Challenge with The Daring Cardmakers.  It's Kathy here this time and I'll apologise straight away, because this one is tough! 
 Much tougher that it seemed when I came up with the 'bright' idea!

Anyway, first, a big thank you for joining in and sharing your cards with us last time, it was lovely to see your creations and we hope you enjoyed spending TIME on Sylvia's lovely challenge.

M A Y   letters
So here's my fiendish challenge for this week! You can make any kind of card you like, but I'd like you to incorporate at least one thing beginning with each letter of the word MAY into your card. For example colours, words, 'things' or techniques beginning with the letters
ideas:
M - Magenta, Mustard, Maypole, Monogram, Masking
A - Anniversary, Amber, Arch, Anchor, Apple
Y - Yellow, Yacht, Yupo paper, You. Yak!

Scary eh?  I hope you don't run away shouting "no chance" over your shoulder!  If you're up for it, this one will make you think a bit out of the box and have you looking at your stash in a different way.  The DT have really stepped up to the mark with their cards and we've added the M,A & Y elements by our names to help give more ideas

May Elemental Inspiration

Happy May!

It's Shabneez here and I'd like to thank all of you who joined in with the 99 Balloons challenge last week - it was fun wasn't it?!

As it's the start of a new month, the May Elemental Challenge is on the calendar this week and here's what I've chosen:


I'm hoping it'll get your creative juices going and you simply need to use any 3 elements from the photo - colour counts as one.

You can see lots of inspiration from the Design Team here:

99 Luftballons / 99 air balloons


Thank you for sharing your blooming cards with us last week. It feels as if spring has finally arrived!

This week we want to see balloons on your cards.

I think they are perfect for any birthday card and easy to adapt to the recipient’s taste in colours, patterns etc.


Here are some examples from the design team:

BINGO

Hello everyone and welcome back to another fun weekly challenge.

A big thank you to everyone that played along last week.

Its Dawn here with this weeks challenge and as my Mam celebrated a big birthday recently I thought this weeks challenge could be a little nod to her.

My Mam loves her bingo and plays at least 3 times a week so I have created a bingo board for the challenge.

You need to pick a line.  Then create a card using those 3 elements on the line you have picked. You can go in any direction as long as its a line.   Or you can go with a full house and use everything on the board.

Please indicate on your blog which line you have used on your creations.

We can't wait to see what your create and here is some inspiration from the Design Team.
