Love and Friendship

Keryn and Rachel are daring you to make a card in the theme of love and friendship for one of the special people in your life. It could be a valentines card, a thankyou for a close friend or a way to propose to the man in your life on the 29th February.

As the resident Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrators Keryn Campbell (NZ) and Rachel Booth (UK) have supplied Stampin' Up!(R) product and images to the design team to help them in their quest for the perfect 'love and friendship' themed card. Please click on the links above for other specials and offers they have running alongside this dare.

There is no expectation that everyone can or will use Stampin' Up!(R) product in their dare cards but if you can Keryn and Rachel would love to see what you come up with. Keryn and Rachel have provided us with two door prizes (small selections of punchies, ribbon and embellishments) and we will put all cardmakers who join in with this dare into a draw for one of the two prizes. Prizes will be drawn at 9am UK time on Friday 22nd February and announced in the next dare post.

The Daring Cardmakers design team would be pleased to accept sponsorship from and provide advertising space to any papercraft company willing to work with us. Please contact Jane through her blog here.

Look below to see what the design team have come up with using their Stampin' Up!(R) images and product. Joining in with the DCM is easy, just leave a message with a link to your blog or wherever else we can see your card on the comments thread and we'll pop over to see your Love and Friendship cards. Alternatively you can email a photo to our gallery at mailto:daringcardmakers@hotmail.co.uk

Yay, it's school holidays again, so I got in early with this one and really loved making it. Sorry I don't have any Stampin' Up, so I used Tilda instead.

Hi! I love the cards posted here as inspiration for the challenge. It's lovely to see so many Stampin' Up! stamps used as well!
I am entering my Valentine card entitled Loads Of Love which can be seen on my blog,

I am not sure this fits the bill really - but I made this this morning for Emily for no other reason than I wanted to send her a card to say we both love her very much - plus it was great fun!

Gina said...

Me again... just wondering how you add a link direct to your blog/card rather than have the whole website showing... eg. want to type 'my card is here' and you just have to click the 'here'.

Can someone please help?
Many thanks, Gina
