Think of a Number


Hello Lovely Cardmakers! 
 
Thanks for joining in with Enfys's lovely balloons challenge last week - its funny how  watching a balloon floating up in the sky is always a cheery sight/  I wonder why that is...
 
Anyway its me, Kathy here today with a new challenge for you
Think of a Number
I'd like you to make one or more numerals the stars of your card in some way this time. 
It could be for one of those 'special number' birthdays or anniversaries. using a background formed from numbers or perhaps you could even make a number shaped card.
Here are some ideas from our fabulous creative team

Up Up and Away...

Hello!

Welcome back for another Daring Cardmakers challenge.  

Thanks to those who joined in and used last week's Wintry mood-board tp inspire your crafting.

This time it's me, Enfys here, and my challenge is called:
Up up and Away...
To put it simply, I'd just love to see lots of balloons
as the focal point of your card.
They always loos so cheerful when you see them floating up there in the sky, don't they?
 They can be hot air balloons or party balloons.  
One big balloon or lots of little ones!

January Elemental Inspiration Challenge

Hello, and
HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Thank you so much to everyone who joined in and shared some fantastic projects during our 'Have Yourself a Very Crafty Christmas' challenges.  We hope you enjoyed them as much as we did.
 
Now though it's time for our first challenge of 2022 and it's Shabneez here to share a chilly sort of mood-board, with a colour palette a bit different to all those Christmas colours we've been using.  Not that you have to use these colours of course!

January Elemental Challenge

 

I've chosen a cool, ethereal and textural mood-board to inspire your crafting at the start of this new year.  
Just choose at least 3 elements from the picture to use when you make
your card.  As usual if you use the colour combo it counts as 1 element 

Here are some ideas from our team to start you off

wk 7: Baubles, Boxes and Bows

Hello and Welcome to The Daring Cardmakers
Thank you for sharing your "Trim the Tree" projects with us.  They were a veritable forest of fabulous ideas!
We're now at the final challenge of our 
 "Have Yourself a Crafty Little Christmas"
 series for 2021
wk 7:  Baubles, Boxes and Bows
Three things beginning with B - you can choose one of them or all three to feature when you make your project this week!
Maybe make a bauble to put in a box and decorate with a bow!
Remember it doesn't have to be Christmas themed, and it can be a card or anything else you're inspired to get crafty and make.
We'll leave this challenge open until we return on 7th January 2022 after our Christmas break, but before we go we'd like to thank you for joining in with us all year, and to wish you a 
Very Happy and Peaceful Christmas
 
however you spend the season

Well this week we'd love to see some trees on your projects, please!

December Elemental Inspiration

Hello and Welcome to The Daring Cardmakers blog

Thank you for sharing your wonderful 'Stockings' projects with us.  It was such fun to see what you made!

"Have Yourself a Crafty Little Christmas"
For all our challenges up till Christmas we invite you to share anything you make on the themes we give - so, not just cards but boxes, bags, tags, labels and decorations.  Whatever you make we want to see your creativity
And of course, your makes don't even have to be Christmassy - we'd love you to use our themes in whatever way you like 
 
So,  we made it to December then and it's time for 
 
wk 5: December Elemental Challenge
 
Our December mood board is all about the excitement of getting ready for Christmas.  The house needs decorating and the gifts need wrapping so there's holly and stars, wrapping paper and twine, baubles and candy canes... and loads more goodies to choose from. 
 Just pick any 3 elements or more from from the picture below (the colour palette counts as one) to use when you make your card
