April 2020 Elemental Challenge

Happy April!!!!

It's Shabneez here and I'd like to thank those of you that joined in with the Recycle Challenge last week.  
We'd also like to Thank Robyn for being such a wonderful Guest Designer over the last couple of months, and let you know that she's agreed to come back and play again sometime soon!
April's Elemental Challenge  
As it's the first Friday of the month I have been set the task of setting the Elemental Challenge.  I've picked a moodboard and you have to choose at least 3 elements from it.  Colours count as 1 element!  

Check out all the inspiration from the Design Team below and we all look forward to seeing what you come up with!

Recycle!

Good morning everyone!

It's Ruth here bringing you a brand new challenge for this week.
But first I'd like to thank you for joining in with last week's floral focus - so many lovely creations which really brightened our day up!

Recycled
The world outside is certainly moving at a pace and we're all having to cope with many things outside of our control.
It's important to find some balance right now and I'm sure many of you are turning to your crafting projects for this.
Hopefully this week's dare will brighten your day and someone else's - even if you can't give them your card in person.
Your project needs to have a recycled element this week.


I do a lot of recycling in my every day life and I also like using bits and bobs that I find on packaging or other cards to reuse on my projects!  I don't like to throw things away as I know that one day I will be able to make use of them!

Get your kids involved - we'd love to see what they can make too!

Here are some ideas from the design team to get you started!

Floral Focus

Good morning everyone!

It's Nat here bringing you a brand new challenge for this week.
But first I'd like to thank you for joining in with last week's lucky dare! Let's hope some of those lucky things start working soon. ;)

The world outside is certainly moving at a pace and we're all having to cope with many things outside of our control.
It's important to find some balance right now and I'm sure many of you are turning to your crafting projects for this.
Hopefully this week's dare will brighten your day and someone else's - even if you can't give them your card in person.
Your card project needs to have a floral focus this week.

Get those flowers front and centre!

Whether floral backgrounds, big stand-alone blooms, or dimensional flowers – let's bring the garden indoors.
Get stamping with vibrant inks, use your stencils for blending, crack open your stash of pens, or get your paintbrush at the ready.

We look forward to seeing your floral makes! :D

Here are some ideas from the design team to get you started!

Lucky For Some

Thank you for joining us in last week’s elemental dare - wasn’t that a gorgeous mood board? It’s Joanne here to host this week’s challenge. 

Lucky For Some
Friday 13th might be unlucky for some but it’s St Patrick’s day on Tuesday so we might be able to balance it out with the luck of the Irish! Make a card featuring something lucky. 

Different cultures around the world have different symbols - you might choose a four leaf clover or a horseshoe. Or perhaps a peony, a dream catcher or the number seven. If you’re stuck for ideas, there’s a fun list here, plenty to choose from! 

Here’s what the team came up with to start spreading a little luck:

Take a Flying Leap

Happy Friday, everyone!

First of all a big "thank you" to all of you who were inspired by last week's challenge. String, ribbon, twine & co. just make such nice additions to almost any card and watching yours was very enjoyable.

It's Svenja here and for this week I'm asking you for a little movement: tomorrow is a special day that only comes up once every 4 years... february 29th. And if time is taking a leap, I guess so can we. Therefore I'm challengeing you all to 

Take a Flying Leap!

Show us things, animals or people that jump or leap on your cards - bunnies, frogs, squirrels, Bob Beamon... what else can you think of? Need some inspirational input first? Here's what our DT members have created to get you started:
