Hello and welcome to The Daring Cardmakers blog!
We are a team of card-makers from the UK, mainland Europe and India who'll try to inspire and encourage you to make some wonderful cards.
Every Friday at about 10am UK time, one of our design team will post a new dare/challenge, along with our creations to get you inspired.
So go on, give it a try - we dare you!
Leave us a comment with a link to your card so that we can view your lovely creations too!
Thanks for taking part in last week’s dare. It was great to see what you found in your itty bitty jars!
It's Miri here and this week, and I'd like you to have a close look at your
craft stash and dig out those
Craft items (stamps, paper, embossing folders etc.)
that you bought or got as a present … that are still waiting to be used because
you completely forgot about them or never found the time to use them.
And I hope that I’m not the only one who has got some of these treasures
in her craft cupboard.
Have a look at the design team’s beautiful creations and then start the
treasure hunt …
Hello There! Hope you enjoyed the Festival of flowers last week .... flowers always bring a smile to my face!
This week's theme is ......
Itty Bitty Jar
More than likely you have a jar or container that sits on your craft table where you pop all those little bits that are just left on the desk and don't have a home, or we run out of time to do a proper clear up :) So the dare this week is to make a card featuring at least 5 items from that jar!
Here is what the Design Team have created from their jars for a wee bit of inspiration
After last weeks lovely colour combo I do hope that you will also enjoy the challenge for this one.
The theme is
There is going to be a flower festival at Lythan's church next week and everyone is working hard on their arrangements. So I would love to see a festival of flowers on your card - or if you have hay fever perhaps just one!

Welcome to a new month and a new colour challenge here on the Daring Cardmakers blog!
It's Jo here to share this month's colour combination, and before I share the colours for this month, may I say a big thank you to everyone who joined in with Kathy's fabulous Make It Yourself challenge.
Onto our colour combo for June - As summer begins this month, I thought that it would be fun to have some ice cream colours, a mix of cools and brights that compliment the lovely warm weather that we have been having in the UK recently;
We're looking forward to seeing what you make using this gorgeous colour palette, so please come back and leave us a message when you're ready to share.
