Up in the Air

Thanks to all those of you who played along with Lythan's green and gold challenge! I think you liked that one ;-) (Well, I sure did.)

It's Svenja here and this week the sky's the limit - my theme for you is

Up in the Air

I'm asking you to make a sky- or flight-related card. 

Feeling "blue" at the idea? Just look at the creations the design team have come up with to get you started - and see how colourful they are!

Green and a glimmer of gold

Lythan here today to thank you for joining in with Joanne's Rough and Smooth challenge last week and launch tell you about mine for this week.

Green with a Glimmer of Gold
 
Well it had to be really didn't it. I'm sure we will not be the only challenge blog to feature green this week but when St Patrick's Day falls on a Friday what else can you do? So how about some cards featuring green and a dash of leprechaun's gold if you like!

The team have made some awesomely beautiful cards to get those creative juices flowing, so why not join in this week?

Take the rough with the smooth

Thank you to everyone who chose elements from Enfys's striking inspiration picture last week, we love to see how the same starting point can inspire such different makes!

It's Joanne here, hosting my very first dare and this week I'd like you to "take the rough with the smooth". It's a philosophy that can be very useful in life - for this challenge I'd like you to contrast something rough (or bumpy) with something smooth/shiny on your cards. 

Here's a little inspiration from the Design Team...

March Elemental Inspiration

Thank you so much for joining in last week with Dawn's "Tearing" challenge - we hope you had fun with it!

This week its the first challenge of a whole new month, and it's Enfys here with the Elemental Inspiration Picture for March
Having lived through various stages of home decor - matching wallpaper and fabrics, G plan furniture and even the dreaded Austrian blinds, I love the clean, uncluttered look of today's decor so chose this wonderful 
 cool, calm and collected Home Decor photo for this week's inspiration and all you need to do is choose at least THREE elements from the picture and use them on your own creation.


Here are just a few suggestions to help get you thinking: Colours, Textures, Stripes, Windows, Geometric Shapes, Wood,  Framed Picture ....... take a close look, there's lots of elements to choose from!

Tear It Up

Hello Crafters.
A big thank you to everyone who played along last week for Leo's dare called Lets Go Geometric.
Its Dawn here with this weeks challenge and I have called it:
Tear It Up
I would like to see something torn on your creations.  So lets get ripping up those background papers, toppers, die cuts etc... and leave the scissors alone.   A simple challenge or so I thought.  I found it so hard to rip my precious designer papers.  I am so glad there were a few of each design to play with.
Here is what the Team came up with

Let's Go Geometric

Hello All
Thank you to everyone who shared their lovely creations with us for Sharon's 'Mirror, Mirror' dare last week - so many wonderful ideas to see!


It's Leo here with this week's challenge:
Let's Go Geometric

I'd like you to create a geometric pattern on your card. 
It can be cut from patterned paper, created with stamps or stitching
 but it has to be made in some way by you, not just a ready made patterned paper.
 
A geometric pattern is a pattern consisting of lines and
geometric figures, such as triangles, circles and squares, that are
arranged in a repeated fashion.


Here's what the team made this time to help inspire you
