Tasty Template - SA Kit Challenge

This week's challenge was a little different for the Daring Card Makers- as it was completely sponsored by Self Addressed.
Self Addressed very kindly donated papers, cards and envelopes (from various SA kits) to the whole of the DCM team to see what we could come up with. So I (Jane) came up with the following template for you and the team to follow. We would like to thank Jen at Self Addressed for her generous support of our blog, we really appreciate it. Many thanks Self addressed!

So use your own papers (or some from your SA Kits if you already get them) to come up with your fabulous creations- and don't forget to check out the fantastic kits on offer at Self Addressed 'The kits are designed for scrapbooks, cards and mini-albums.

This is what our team came up with using their yummy papers and the template. We can't wait to see how you get on with this one, and as always, you can share your work with everyone in two ways. Either leave a message with your blog link so we can come and see, or email your pictures to us at , with your name and website if you have one.

AND there's more exciting news on the design team front! We are pleased to announce that, in addition to our super announcement on Tuesday of Lynne joining the design team on a full time basis, we have a new Guest Designer who will be designing with us for the next couple of weeks. So we offer a warm welcome to Tracy and look forward to working with her over the next couple of weeks.

Oh my goodness what stunning cards! And such beautiful papers, I'd never heard of Self Addressed before, off to browse their site ;)

Sheila said...

Well now I've stopped drooling over all your fabulous cards and 'to die for''s my effort for this week.........nothing very exciting as I'm neither fond of nor very good at templates unless I follow them fairly rigidly.

Esther said...

I couldn't help myself... I love this card dare site now I've found it, so I went back and did the two previous ones - primary colours and felt.

Di said...

It's nice to see all these new names on here isn't it. Not had time to check out anyone else's cards yet other than some of the DCM team. How do you all manage to find the time?

Anyway, mine is done and on my blog, so do please visit.

You know I try so hard NOT to look at the galleries till after I've done mine so as not to give myself a crisis of confidence!!

But I've done mine so I can go off and drool now ;o)

Beautifully inspirational cards from the DT ;o)
