July Elemental Inspiration Challenge

 Hello everyone and welcome to the weekly challenge from the Daring Cardmakers Team.
A big thank you to everyone that joined in last weeks midsummer inspired challenge.  It was wonderful to see all your nature themed cards.
Its Dawn here with this weeks challenge and as its the beginning of the month and the summer holidays are just around the corner, I have picked the summery image below.
Remember you need to use a least 3 elements on your cards and the colours count as one element. 

We can't wait to see how you are inspired.  
 
Here are a few ideas from the fabulous Design Team.
Happy crafting.

Midsummer

Hi crafty friends, Jenny here your host for this week's challenge!  Firstly thanks to those of you who joined in with last week's fabulous challenge, I loved seeing all your beach themed makes. 

So what is our theme for this week, well today is Midsummer's day - a day to appreciate all the gifts that nature provides.  This week I dare you to make a card inspired by Midsummer. 
 Share your appreciation of nature and maybe even include some natural elements e.g. pressed flowers, leaf prints.

Vamos a la Playa... Life`s a Beach

Hello
 
Miri here to say Thank You so much to those who joined in with Joanne's lovely Pearls challenge last time, it actually links quite nicely with my own theme for this week!

Which is

Vamos a la Playa... Life`s a Beach!

Summer's here and I hope we all have some time at the beach or pool or other kind of water planned for this summer. 
I'd like you to use a "beach element" on your card this week: 
sea shells, sand, a parasol, a beach chair, flip flops ... 
whatever you associate with life at the beach or by the water.
 
Here are some ideas from the team

Pearls of wisdom

Hello, 
Joanne here to host this week's challenge. 
Pearls of Wisdom
As pearl is one of the birthstones for June let's celebrate by making something inspired by the glowing beauty of the pearl. 
You might embellish your card with flat back pearls or dimensional pearl drops, use pearlescent paints or cardstock, an image of a pearl in its shell or perhaps someone wearing pearl jewellery. We’d love to see how you’re inspired by pearls!
Here's some inspiration from the team:

June Elemental Isnpiration Challenge


Hello, Rizwana here again this week. Before we get down to the first challenge of a new month, a big thank you to those who celebrated with us last week, we loved seeing your cards!
 June Elemental Inspiration Challenge  
We have an “elemental” challenge for you today — just choose at least three elements from the inspiration picture (colour scheme counts as one element so pick two other things as well if you decide to go with colours).

Flair Not Square

Hello!
It's Rizwana here and I want to thank those of you that joined in with the challenge last week.
Flair Not Square
I love my square cards but sometimes you just need a card that stands out and has its own flair. So this week I'd love to see cards other than a square card. So it could be a rectangle, circle, pop up or even a fancy fold card, the choices are endless.
 
Here is some inspiration from the Design Team:

Home Comforts

 Hello crafters and welcome to the weekly challenge.  

A big massive thank you to everyone that joined in last week for Nat's Rain or Shine challenge.

Its Dawn here with a lovely new dare for you. 

HOME COMFORTS

As I am an expat living in France there are a lots things I miss for example Cadbury chocolate, Yorkshire tea and oxo cubes.  So I want you to make a card featuring something you would miss if you lived in another country, what reminds you of home, it might not even be food.  I still can't get use to seeing yellow post boxes and vans.

Here is what the design team came up with this week to help inspire you.
