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:

Oh So Square

Happy Friday!

It's Shabneez here today and on behalf of the Design Team I'd like to thank those of you that took part in the Spring themed challenge last week.

This week I'd love to see squares on your card - perhaps a square shaped card or a multitude of squares, the more the better!

Here is some inspiration from the Design Team:

Spring is in the air!

Morning all!

It's Nat here with this week's new challenge!

~~~

But first, thank you to everyone who played along last week with our sewing-themed dare!

~~~

Here in the Northern Hemisphere, the astronomical Vernal Equinox will soon mark the official start of Spring - so let's welcome the official changing of the seasons  with colours, florals, or any of other elements that shout SPRING to you! 

To get you started, here's some lovely inspiration from the design team:

Just Sew!

 Good morning Lovely Crafters

Thank you so much for joining in and using Miri's beautiful moodboard to inspire your crafting last week.

It's Kathy here today, and I've been thinking about all the crafts we have in our armoury. I'm pretty sure that most of us dabble in many different crafts! 

 Hands up if you also crochet, paint, do woodworking, Cake decorating, pottery... or just maybe you sew?

Just Sew!

I can't remember actually learning to sew - its just something I could always do! So this week I thought I'd ask you to add some kind of stitching to your cards.
It doesn't have to be much and it doesn't have to be 'real'
For example you could add a 'real' stitch or two (or a whole lot of them!), or add something like a stitched embellishment.
Or go down the faux route with a stamped, drawn, stencilled or die cut stitching effect.
We're looking forward to seeing your ideas, but here are some from the team to help get you thinking

Whatever the Weather!

Hello Daring Cardmakers, welcome to the blog!

It's Kirsty here, and my debut for hosting so firstly a big thank you to the team members for their guidance and patience! Secondly, thank you to everyone who took part in last week's music/dance challenge. I love how we all have such different but fabulous takes on a theme. So many different styles to admire!

This week's theme is 'Whatever the Weather'. Don't we always love to chat about the weather? We've had a real mix lately from freezing cold, wind storms, rain and sunshine so I thought this would be a great theme! I would love to see your weather related card!

Check out the weather report from the design team below!

Face the music and dance

Hello crafters, Joanne here. Thanks for sharing yummy cake with us last week! 

For this week’s challenge,  I’m making a song and dance about things: make a card inspired by music and/or dance. Any kind of music, any kind of dance — serenade us or break out the boogie, however the mood takes you!

Here’s some inspiration from the design team:
