Blooming Wonderful

Hello

Happy Friday

It's Ruth here today with this week's challenge, but first, we'd like to thank you for joining in with us last week and helping Dawn's mum to celebrate her special day with all your Bingo-inspired creations!

Blooming Wonderful
It's Spring here in the Northern Hemisphere and the parks and gardens are beginning to bloom.
I LOVE flowers so lets see lots and lots of them in your creations this week!

BINGO

Hello everyone and welcome back to another fun weekly challenge.

A big thank you to everyone that played along last week.

Its Dawn here with this weeks challenge and as my Mam celebrated a big birthday recently I thought this weeks challenge could be a little nod to her.

My Mam loves her bingo and plays at least 3 times a week so I have created a bingo board for the challenge.

You need to pick a line.  Then create a card using those 3 elements on the line you have picked. You can go in any direction as long as its a line.   Or you can go with a full house and use everything on the board.

Please indicate on your blog which line you have used on your creations.

We can't wait to see what your create and here is some inspiration from the Design Team.

April elemental inspiration

Good morning everyone!

It's Nat back again this week for a double whammy on the challenges front!

Thank you to everyone who played along with my dare last week. We really enjoyed seeing your lovely cards!

I'm setting the challenge two weeks in a row and with it being the first Friday of the month, it's time for another elemental inspiration dare!



As always, you need to interpret three elements from the image on your card, with colours/the colour scheme only counting as one element. 
There are lots of lovely details to choose from, so the only problem will be deciding which to go for! ;)

To get you started, here are some of the gorgeous projects the design team has created!

A Special Lady

Good morning everyone!

It's Nat here bringing you the final dare of the month.

Before we get to that, thank you to everyone who played along with last week's "Recycle it!" challenge.

This week I'm challenging you to make a card for a special lady in your life.

With Mother's Day just around the corner here in the UK, this might give you the nudge to get your card made if that's still on your to-do list.

But this is by no means just a Mother's Day challenge!

We want you to celebrate all women, whether family, friends or paying homage to a female figure you admire.

You can even quote your favourite fictional characters. :D

The design team has been hard at work creating some lovely projects to jump start your creativity.

Happy crafting!

Recycle it!

Hi everyone!

And thanks, first of all, to everybody who took part in last week's stitching challenge - we saw some very diverse examples of real and faux stitching and I guess you really enjoyed that one.

It's Svenja here and trying to keep you busy - and sustainable. My challenge for you this week is to 

R-E-C-Y-C-L-E

something that was likely to go in the bin. What did you make from it instead? It doesn't have to be a card but could also be a book or box or anything else that came to your mind. 

Let us see what a difference your work makes - and we'd also like to hear the story of your object so please do tell us what you've used and did to it to make things as good as new.

Of course the design team members have prepared something to get you started:


(Used a magazine page to make a print, tomato paste tube and keyboard protector)


(recycled some old shop bought Birthday cards)



Dawn (an old embroidery hoop)


Nat 
Recycled clear plastic packaging and cardstock scraps!
Corrugated card packaging and the flowers and heart are from a card reject!


Recycled an old cigarillo tin (that now holds some plastic flamingoes)

Stitch It!

Happy Friday!

It's Shabneez here!  Thanks to all of you for joining in with the Mad March Hare challenge last week - it was fun, wasn't it?

This week I'd like to see stitching of any sort on your cards - dust the cobwebs off those sewing machines, use a needle and thread, faux stitching is fine or how about adding some thread on your cards?  We can't wait to see your creations and below you'll find some wonderful inspiration from the Design Team.
