Doodle, Doodle, Do!


 If you've been following our blog for the last few weeks, you'll have 'met' Purvi, one of our Guest Designers - but did you know that a lot of the lovely cards she's been sharing feature Purvi's own, hand-drawn elements?  Well, we've been so impressed we thought we'd all have a go, and would like you all to join in too! 

Doodle, Doodle, Do!

As Purvi says: "Make your pen your friend...scribble, doodle, draw shapes/patterns, make marks...just go with the flow"

So this week, please follow Purvi's lead and add a drawing or a doodled element to your card this week 

Here's what the team came up with

Strawberries and Cream

Hi everyone it's Sharon here.  Thanks to everyone that joined in last week with Miri's wonderful summer themed challenge.   Even though the weather was a bit dubious, seeing all the lovely summery cards really put me in a summery mood!

This week I'm kind of continuing with the summer theme as my dare is 
Strawberries and Cream. 
 Since we've just had Wimbledon and it's most definitely the time for strawberries in the UK, I'd like you to either feature strawberries on your card, or just take inspiration from a strawberry and cream colour scheme.

To give you some inspiration, here are some ideas from the design team:

Let's have a summer party




Thank you very much for your cards that were inspired by Lythan’s fantastic beach collage.

This week I’m still in summer mood and I want you to create a card that features one ingredient for a perfect summer party. No matter if it’s a pool party, a picnic party, a birthday party, a Euros party or a BBQ party:
BBQ (steaks, sausages etc.), sun glasses, a pool, lemonade, cocktails, a water melon, picnic baskets, all kinds of balls (to entertain the kids), colourful napkins, summer fruits, ice cubes, bunting, cake, a parasol …

Let’s see what my fantastic Design Team members came up with.

Elemental Inspiration for July

Thank you to all who shared cards inspired by out "On Your Travels" theme last week - we enjoyed travelling the blogs seeing what you'd made!
We're sure you are enjoying seeing Purvi Gadewar's clever cards, so we are very happy that she's staying for a bit longer - but lucky us! we are delighted to introduce another lovely Guest Designer:
 Shabneez, 
aka Happy Hijabi, who will be sharing some great ideas over the next few weeks

 Now on to this week's challenge;


July's Elemental Inspiration piece is more of a mood-board or collage of several pictures and has been chosen by Lythan. 
 Lots of Summertime beach-themes here!
As ever the challenge is to create your own card which uses at least 3 elements from the picture. 

Suggestions: Bright Stripes, Deckchair, Lollies, Beach, Sea, Slip-flops, Sun hats, Summer-themed words, Clouds, Layout



Now see how the Design Team were inspired....

On Your Travels

Good Morning Crafters!
Thank you for visiting  - we hope you'll enjoy the challenge we have for you this time. As usual though, we start by thanking those who joined in with our last dare - which was all about our furry - and not so furry animal friends - it was fun to see them featuring on your cards.

It's me, Kathy here this week, and as here in the Northern Hemisphere the holiday season is getting into full swing I thought we'd celebrate that 
with a travel-themed challenge
On Your Travels
You can take the theme wherever you like - modes of travel. suitcases, places you love, or would love to travel to - its up to you.  So whether you're heading off on a jaunt, day-dreaming about distant shores, or travelling no further than a deckchair in your garden, we'd love you to join in and share your journey with us
We hope you'll find inspiration in the cards the team have made to share with you this week 
Have fun

Dawn

Man's best friend

Hi everyone!

Thank you to those who played along with Leo's Fun and Games challenge last week.
 
It's Nat here bringing you this week's dare.

There are more fun and games coming your way since my challenge for you is all about the fluffy, furry, not-so-furry, feathered and even scaly creatures that share our lives and homes.

As always we look forward to seeing what you come up with - whether it's man's best friend or something very exotic!

When you're done with your card remember to link it up below to your blog or gallery. You can also share it on the Daring Cardmakers Facebook page and on Instagram using the hashtag #daringcardmakers.



Here's some inspiration from the team to get you started!

Happy crafting!
