February Elemental Inspiration Challenge

Happy Friday, Crafters!

It's Nat here today with our new challenge, and to say a big Thank You to those who joined in with Joanne's Around the House challenge last week - that one really made us think, didn't it?

As it's the first Friday of the month it's time for the
 
February 2023 Elemental Inspiration Challenge
 
You need to pick any 3 elements from the photo for your card - remember colours count as one element.  

There are plenty of elements to choose from: hearts, fabric and knit textures, geometric layouts, pastel colours, cups, drinks, socks, landscape scenes, even pink chocolate

 Here's my inspiration photo:

You can see lots of inspiration from the Design Team below and we 
look forward to seeing your creations!

Around the house

Hello Cardmakers, thanks for joining us and thank you for sharing your magenta creations with us last week! 
It’s Joanne here with this week’s challenge and there are two ways to play
 “around the house”. 
You can either use a household object as part of your creation (e.g. foil from the kitchen, dry wall tape from the tool box, scrape a design into paint with the prongs of a fork) or use an image of a household object as your focal point (e.g. a TV, a food mixer, a games console). You could do both for extra virtual brownie points if the mood takes you!
Here’s some inspiration from the design team:

New year, new crafty things

 

Shabneez kicked off the new year with a beautiful inspirational picture last week.
And today it’s Miri here to provide you with a new challenge to get a crafty start into the new year.
 
New Year – New crafty things
 
Use a piece of your craft supplies (stamp, tool, stencil…) that you have never used before!
Give it a new chance or a beautiful beginning in the new year.
Maybe you even got some supplies for Christmas? Or, like in my case, the weeks before Christmas were just too busy to try out your new things.
Here is some inspiration from the design team:
 

Nat (new die set)

Miri (new stamp set)


Dawn (new Stamp set)


Kathy   (new die set)
 

Joanne (new embossing folder)


Rizwana (New Stamp Set)
