Another Dimension

Hello and Welcome to another Daring Cardmakers Challenge - this week it's me, Kathy, here with something to get you thinking and crafting (I hope!).
Before  that though, we all want to thank you for sharing so many wonderful ideas with us for Lythan's "Flags" challenge last week.  We really enjoyed seeing what you made.
Thanks too for all the lovely messages you've left over the last few weeks - it's so good to know you appreciate the challenges we come up with and that you like to see what we've been making.   
On to this week

Another Dimension 
  not Time Warps, Little Green Men from Mars, or anything else 
"other-world"
  I just don't want to see any flat, regular sort of cards this week - instead I'd like to see lots of interesting folds and shapes; Stepper cards, Card in a Box, Pyramids, Flip-it type cards..... Anything goes as long as the finished, standing-up card is more 3D than 2D. 

This is your chance to try out all those techniques and tutorials for unusually shaped and folded cards that you've been saving!  Yes. we all do it, don't we?


Here's what our DT have come up with this week

Flag it up!

This week I dare you to 
Flag it up!
By which I mean I want you to make a card inspired by a national flag. You can use the flag elements as a sketch, or the colours or a motif (stars and stripes for example) You can be patriotic and use your own flag or show your love for all nations by choosing the flag of a different country.

Take a look at what the fabulous design team have come up with

Lythan - Japan

Leo - Canada

Kathy - England

Miri - The Netherlands
Svenja - Great Britain (Ireland, Scotland, England)

The theme is
Money Makes the World go Round 
We'd like to see any kind of money-themed artwork, e.g. cards for money as a present (much needed these days. sigh.), use coins or banknotes or elements on your card, play around with money-themed sentiments or maybe even invent your very own currency!

DO Die-licious! ~ Sponsored by docrafts!

Good Morning to all you Daring Cardmakers!

Thank you so much for taking part in Miri's Fairy Tales dare last week.  I hope you have had a 'ball' creating them!

docrafts have sponsored this week's dare, so I hope you will join in the fun.  
The designers were sent a mixture of Xcut dies to create with along with some of the new Gorjuss papers.

The Xcut dies are thin and perfect for use on so many different projects, there is a huge variety of dies in all shapes and sizes and fit in most die cutting machines but of course they work like a dream in the new Xpress die-cutting machine.

So if you fancy being in with a chance of winning these gorgeous alphabet dies below, then we dare you to create a card using your Xcut dies.*  Link us to your website and one random winner will be chosen next week.
 NB * Xcut dies are preferred but if you don't have any then please feel free to use other dies :)

So with out further ado here is what the design team created
