Midsummer's Day

Hi everyone!

It's Nat here.

First of all thank you to everyone who joined in with last week's "Come Fly With Me" dare - there were some lovely cards made for that theme.

Midsummer's Day 

This week I'd like to see your cards in celebration of Midsummer's day - the longest day of the year here in the northern hemisphere and sometimes one of the prettiest summer sunsets to boot...

There are so many summer themes to choose from, but you will get extra gold stars if you make a card inspired by Shakespeare's play, A Midsummer Night's Dream. :D

Here are some of the fab ideas the design team came up with:

Come, fly with me...

Happy Friday, crafters!

First of all a big "thank you" to everyone who let themselves be inspired by last week's elemental inspiration challenge. Wasn't it a great way to start into a new month of creativity?

It's Svenja here with a new challenge for you:

Come, fly with me!

I'd like to see all kinds of things that fly on your cards: birds, bees, planes, kites, superheroes... whatever comes to mind.
And of course the Design Team members have already taken to the skies to inspire you:

June's Elemental Inspiration

Hello there Crafters!

Thank You to those who joined in last week and shared your "Secret Hideaway" cards with us.  We loved seeing them.
We're delighted to welcome a new Guest Designer this week.  The fabulously talented Sonja Kaufmann will be sharing her creations with us for the next few weeks - we're sure you'll love to see what she makes

As usual our first challenge of the month is an
 Elemental Inspiration Challenge.  
 For June we have this beautiful Mood Board

 Remember, you just need to pick a minimum 3 elements  from the picture to use when making your card.  If you choose to use the colour palette, then that would count as one of your elements

Suggested elements; 
Squares, Photos, Textures, Leaves, Tags, Potted Plant, Feathers.....

Here's what our fab team have been making this week

Secret Hideaway

Hello, Joanne here with this week's challenge. I'm just back from a couple of weeks near Vienna so I've missed seeing entries for the last couple of dares - hope you've all been having fun!

This week I'd like to see you create a card with a hidden element! You might choose to use a camouflage/eclipse sentiment with die cut words or letters, add a pocket to your card and tuck something inside, use a flap to conceal a surprise image or sentiment... what can you come up with to create a secret hideaway?

Here's some inspiration from the Design Team:

Celebrating The Victorian Era

Happy Friday!

It's Shabneez here today and I hope you enjoyed Kathy's challenge last week,  thanks to those of you that joined in.

It's Queen Victoria's birthday today so to celebrate I'd like to see something from her era on your cards be it a mode of transport, clothing, steampunk or you can pay homage to the Queen herself and do something regal!

Here is the inspiration from the Design Team this week:

M. A. Y. letters

Hello!
Welcome to another Friday Challenge with The Daring Cardmakers.  It's Kathy here this time and I'll apologise straight away, because this one is tough! 
 Much tougher that it seemed when I came up with the 'bright' idea!

Anyway, first, a big thank you for joining in and sharing your cards with us last time, it was lovely to see your creations and we hope you enjoyed spending TIME on Sylvia's lovely challenge.

M A Y   letters
So here's my fiendish challenge for this week! You can make any kind of card you like, but I'd like you to incorporate at least one thing beginning with each letter of the word MAY into your card. For example colours, words, 'things' or techniques beginning with the letters
ideas:
M - Magenta, Mustard, Maypole, Monogram, Masking
A - Anniversary, Amber, Arch, Anchor, Apple
Y - Yellow, Yacht, Yupo paper, You. Yak!

Scary eh?  I hope you don't run away shouting "no chance" over your shoulder!  If you're up for it, this one will make you think a bit out of the box and have you looking at your stash in a different way.  The DT have really stepped up to the mark with their cards and we've added the M,A & Y elements by our names to help give more ideas


Kathy    (Mosaic,  Aster/Adorable. Yellow)





 Joanne    (Magazine page, Alcohol ink, Yupo)
