M is for…

 Hello, Happy Friday!

A big Thank You to those who joined in with Shabneez's Let's Hear it for the Boys challenge last week - its always good to have a few masculine cards tucked away, isn't it?  Maybe you'll get at least one more made this week too!

                    M is for May, 

                                      but what else?

This week, please feature one of more 'things' beginning with the initial M. Perhaps a colour (Mauve, Mango?),
a technique (Masking, Mosaics?),
An image (Milkshake, Map?)
a theme (Masculine, Music etc)
or maybe simply use a Monogram 

Don't forget to share, and to let us know which 'M' items you've used! 

Here are our ideas for this time

Let's Hear It For The Boys!

Happy Friday!

It's Shabneez here and I wanted to thank those of you that joined in with the challenge last week.  

This week I thought we'd get our thoughts together for some masuline card ideas, especially as Father's Day is coming up!

Here are some ideas from the rest of the Design Team:

Postal Perfection


Morning everyone!

It's Nat here bringing you a brand-new challenge in time for the weekend!

But first, thank you to those of you who played along with our elemental inspiration challenge for May. x

This week, I'm shamelessly combining the theme of my challenge with my crafty to-do list. 

I recently finally took the plunge and invested in the very popular and creative Postage Collage series from Waffle Flower. Postal-themed supplies have been around for a while and it's always nice to give them a fresh lease of life. 

So why not make a card with a postal theme?

You can use your own Postage Collage supplies if you have them, feature postage stamps and dies, cancellation marks, vintage postcards and actual stamps, air mail borders, and anything used to write and send a letter!

So many possibilities!

I look forward to seeing what you make.

Happy crafting!

To get you started, here are a few ideas from the Design Team:

Something old, something new .

Hello!

Last week’s card cake recipe was yummy.

This week let’s combine

Something old and something new

Use something old and something new on your card. Or maybe old material and a new technique etc.

…and if you are in the mood you can add something borrowed and something blue too. Or just make a wedding card 😉.

Here are some ideas from the design team to inspire you and give you some ideas for your crafting time:

A Cardmaker's Cake Recipe!

Hello!  Happy Friday

Thank you so much for joining in with Joanne's Circles challenge last week, we hope you've stopped spinning by now! It's Kathy here today and I promise my challenge isn't as complicated as it seems at first!  Really, its just a list of things I'd like you to use when you make your card.

A Cardmaker's Cake Recipe!
If you made a cake you would use eggs, sugar, butter and flour
My challenge is a twist or 'play on words' of those ingredients; I've just substituted crafty elements for butter, sugar etc.

Ingredients

Flower(s)
the colour Yellow   
Glitter or other 'tiny sprinkly' stuff  
Oval shape, a bird, a nest, or something else egg related

You may also add 2 other 'ingredients' of your choice

Method

Mix well and add your own creative magic 

It doesn't have to be a cake!

Here's what the team 'cooked up' this week!

Round and round

Hello card makers, thank you for joining us in our April inspiration challenge last week! 

Joanne here this week and I’d like to see 

circles 

You might use circles as a design element, frame a focal point with a circle, stamp an object that contains circles (bikes have wheels, clock faces, dream catchers etc).

Here’s some circular inspiration from the design team:
