Stitch It!

Happy Friday!

It's Shabneez here!  Thanks to all of you for joining in with the Mad March Hare challenge last week - it was fun, wasn't it?

This week I'd like to see stitching of any sort on your cards - dust the cobwebs off those sewing machines, use a needle and thread, faux stitching is fine or how about adding some thread on your cards?  We can't wait to see your creations and below you'll find some wonderful inspiration from the Design Team.

Mad March Hare

Hello, Joanne here with this week's challenge. As we move in to spring in the northern hemisphere, I'd like you to be inspired by the phrase

 Mad March Hare

You might feature a hare or a rabbit, maybe even Lewis Carrol’s perpetually late character?
Perhaps the mental image of boxing hares will take you down that route - the gloves are off!
If you’re the punning type, you might focus on HAIR - crazy coloured hair, long flowing locks...

Here's some inspiration from the design team:

March Elemental Inspiration

Good Morning crafters! Obviously last week's challenge didn't give you quite as much of a headache as it did me - thanks to everyone for playing along! But if you're still pondering... I reckon this week's challenge will also work well for "masculine" cards.

Can you believe it's March already? On the other hand: we've had some definitely springy days in February, so whyever not...
It's Svenja here and I've packed some sunshine into this month's elemental inspiration picture for you. Please choose at least three elements from the pic and use them on your card (colours count as one element). 

(For those who are in a holiday-mood: all pictures were taken on lovely Urk, Holland last September)

Still no idea where to start? Just have a look at the beautiful creations the Design Team members have prepared for you:

Oh Man!


Hi there!

We hope you enjoyed Sylvoa's 'Alphabet Soup' challenge last week, we loved seeing your wonderful ideas, so thanbk you for sharing them with us.

This week it's me, Kathy here with a tricksy one for you - at least its always a tough theme for me!  Like a lot of cardmakers I find men's cards a bit of a trial - and as all the boys in the family are getting too old for the kids cards I used to do for them I need lots of new ideas for cards for men
So my challenge is called
Oh Man!
and I would love you to make and share cards made with men in mind.

As always the design team have come up with some great ideas, and I can't wait to see all the inspiration you can share too

Alphabet Soup


Hello Sylvia here, 
thank you to everyone who joined in with Miri's challenge last week we enjoyed seeing all your cards with candles.

This week I am hosting the challenge which is

 "ALPHABET SOUP"

I would like to see letters, words or numbers as the main feature of your cards.

So many candles


We had lots of fun with Joanne’s inspiring elemental picture last week.
So this week it’s my, Miri’s, turn to set a dare and I want to see
SO MANY CANDLES!
Use one or more candles on your card.
Maybe you can use a birthday cake with candles on top? Or a very early Christmas or advent card? Or even use a real candle on your card?
We would love to see your creations!

Here are some ideas from the great design team:

February Elemental

Hello, welcome to another new month!

Thank you to everybody who brightened up dull wintery days (in the northern hemisphere - those in the southern could probably do with a bit of cooling down!) by sharing colourful creations with us.

Joanne here with your Elemental Challenge for February. Have a look at this month's inspiration picture and choose at least three elements to kickstart your creation. Colour palette counts as one choice so if you go with the colours, pick at least two other things as well.

For the photo I put together a few things from my craft room as well as the sweater I'm wearing as I type this! If you're in the mood for a Valentine, you might see a heart shape lurking in those buttons but there are loads of other possibilities: jeans/denim, knitted texture, pearlescence, bottle, lace, scissors, pins, pocket...



Here's what the design team were inspired to make
