Got Your Number

Thank you to all who joined in with last week's dare set by Dawn.  This week it is my turn, Ruth, to set the challenge.

Both my boys have Birthday's in September and my eldest has turned 16.  So my challenge to you is to create something with a number on it!

And it doesn't need to be a Birthday number :)

Over to the team to see what they have created:

Special Thoughts

Hello everyone and a big thank you for joining in last weeks Elemental Inspiration challenge.  

It's Dawn here to host this week's challenge.  

Special Thoughts

The challenge I have set is a personal one for me.  I recently lost my Dad to cancer after a 9 year battle.  My Dad was my hero and I miss him so much.  So I want you to create a card for that special person, in memory of someone special or just to let a friend know you are thinking about them.

As a family we received lots of cards after Dad passed away and it was comforting to know how much people cared.

Let's see how the Design Team were inspired this week.

September's Elemental Inspiration Challenge

Hello there Crafters!

Thank You to those who joined in with Nat last week and shared your fab ideas for using Resit Techniques - they were a real inspiration.

As usual our first challenge of the month is an
Elemental Inspiration Challenge 
For September we have this colourful mood board chosen by Ruth
Remember, you just need to pick a minimum 3 elements  from the picture to use when making your card.  If you choose to use the colour palette, then that would count as one of your elements
 
Here's how our fab team were inspired by this month's board

Resist!

Hello everyone!

It's Nat here bringing you this week's challenge.

First though, thank you to everyone who joined in with Svenja's under the sea dare last week. It was a feast for the eyes! :D

This week I'm challenging you to embrace one of my favourite techniques of the moment: the resist technique.

You can accomplish it in a variety of ways using:
  • Heat embossing to resist ink, watercolour or other media
  • Masking paper or post-it notes with die cuts or even masking tape
  • Resist spray on its own or in combination with stencils
  • Masking fluid or a masking pen with watercolour
  • Wax crayons
I'm sure there are other methods you'll think of! :)

To get you started here are some of the ideas the Design Team came up with:

Joanne (debossed die resist)


Kathy (hot foil + ink)


Nat (ink wash background + heat embossing)


Miri (ink blending + heat embossing)


Ruth (crayon resist)

I'd like to be... under the sea...

Happy friday!

Thanks to all of you who splish-splash-sploshed along with us last week. Wasn't it a joy?

It's Svenja here and I'm kind of sticking to a watery theme. Because...

I'd like to be... under the sea...

I would like your cards to feature any kind of underwater life. Virtual extra brownie points for octopusses (with or without gardens).

Hope this crafty weekend goes swimmingly for y'all. If you're still in need of some inspiration, here's what the Design Team have created to get you started:

Splish, splash, splosh

Thanks to everyone who got creative with counting and came up with some great 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 creations for last week's challenge - we loved seeing them!
Splish, Splash, Splosh
It's Joanne here this week and I'd like to see you get loose and unstructured with watercolours, inks or paints to create a focal point, background or accents for your project - sploosh, spray and splatter to your heart's content! It can be a little bit scary when you're not in total control of the results but it's fun to let go and remind yourself there's no right or wrong every once in a while!

Here's what the design team let loose this week:
