August Elemental Inspiration Challenge

Hello, hope you are all keeping safe and well, whatever restrictions are in place where you are. Thank you for shaking along with us last week with
a fun selection of cards!
Before going on to this week's challenge, we have some news for everyone. 
As of this week, Jenny will no longer be our Guest Designer.....
because we're thrilled to announce that she's agreed to join our DT 'full time'.
So we'll all see loads more of her fabulous creations - we're so happy
to have you aboard, Jenny!

It's Joanne here and as it's the first Friday of a new month that means an "elemental" challenge here at DCM. Choose at least three elements from the picture to include in your project (colour scheme counts as one element).
Take a look at the inspiration from the Design Team - more information on individual blogs if you want to find out more about how the picture inspired them!

Shake it!


Hello everyone, it's Rizwana here with this week's challenge. But first I'd like to thank all of you who joined in last week's Three Musketeers challenge.

This week, I would love to see your Shaker projects.


Shake It !

You can create any project using a shaker element. It can be a card, a gift box, a tag or even a book. We can't wait to see what you create. Here is some inspiration from our super talented design team.

Happy crafting!

Three Musketeers!

Hello, and first of all a big thank you for travelling to Mexico with us for last week’s dare - virtual vacations can be fun, right?!

Joanne here today and as a big reader I can always find an excuse for a literary connection! It’s the birthday of author Alexandre Dumas today - The Three Musketeers is probably his most famous work so 
let’s celebrate the power of three!
 Show us three of something on your cards this week. 

Here is some lovely inspiration from the Design Team:

Frida Kahlo

A lovely, sunny morning to y'all!

Weren't last week's dots and stripes great fun? Thanks to everyone who enjoyed them as much as I did and played along.

It's Svenja here and I'm inviting you to celebrate the life, work and home country of 
Frida Kahlo!
Think of flowers, bold colours, strong eyebrows, her beautiful Casa Azul but maybe also of suffering and revolution. And of course of her country - 
Mexico!

And, as always, the Design Team members have quite some inspiration for you:

Deckchair Stripes and Sunny Dots

Hello!
Happy Friday
Are you ready to have some fun with a new challenge?  It's Kathy here today and just before I give the details for this week's  theme I'd like to say a big thank you to those who joined in with Svenja's Elemental Picture challenge last week.  I loved the way she built her own board with favourite things from her stash, didn't you?

I've a simple challenge for you this week

Deckchair Stripes and Sunny Dots

I've been using small areas of spots and stripes on loads of my cards lately, especially in a simple Black and White combo, often just to mat my sentiment on, as a 'foil' for all the other colours. 
So this week I'd like to see lots of spots. stripes or both on your cards please
Use paper, paints, inks, stencils, stamps.... 
Make them however you like and whatever colours or sizes you like.

I Can't wait t see your ideas!

Here's what the design team came up with to inspire you this time
