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

Mirror Mirror

Hello Crafters!

It's Friday, so its time for a new challenge.
First though we'd like to say thank you for joining in with our Inspiration Picture Challenge last week. 
 It was a fun picture to work with, we hope you enjoyed it.

This time its Sharon setting the theme:
 Mirror, Mirror
At this time of year, with Winter dragging on (well, in the northern hemisphere anyway1) we really need a bit of something shiny to brighten the days, So,I simply want to see something reflective on your card! 
It could be foiling, shiny stickers, miri card, or even mirrored tiles. 
Go on, Let it Shine!!!

February Elemental Inspiration

Good Morning Card Makers!

Thanks to all of you who shared their ideas and creations about what you'd like more of for the (almost) new year. We saw some great cards and some very interesting and inspiring wish-lists. 


We have sad and happy news to share this week. We are sad to say that Purvi is leaving us as work and family commitments are getting in the way of crafting time, but you never know, she may be back.....
The good news is that having spent a few weeks with us Shabneez is now joining our permanent  DT member, so we will see more of her fab cards.
This week we are very happy to welcome a new Guest Designer, 
Ruth Cunliffe aka Tip Top Toppers  
has been a friend of The Daring Cardmakers for a long time and its lovely to be able to show her cards on our blog for a few weeks

Talking of almost new... it's the first Friday of February already, so time for a brand new Elemental Inspiration challenge...
All you need to do is choose at least THREE elements from the photo and use them on your own creation (colours only count as ONE element).



If you still don't quite know where to start... here's some inspiration by the DT members for you:

I want more ...



Good morning, crafters.
It was great to see your stitched creations this week. Thanks for joining our challenge.

January is quickly coming to an end, but we’re still at the beginning of the new year. It’s still time to set goals or think about changes you might want to make.

This week we’ll challenge you to think about what you want more of in 2017!
What do you want more of?
More glitter? More time? More magic? More vegetables? More love? More books? ... show it to us on your card and we hope that you'll get it, whatever it is!

And, if you like, tell us a few words about it on your blog.
If you’re curious what the Design Team longs for 2017, have a look at our cards or our individual blogs.

Stitch it!

Morning everyone!

It's Nat here bringing you my first dare of 2017!

Thanks to everyone who played along with Kathy's "New!" challenge last week.

This week I am hoping that you'll be raiding your sewing box or dragging your sewing machine out because I want you to feature stitching on your cards as a real eye-catching element!

You can do some good old hand-stitching with embroidery floss and a needle, machine sewing or even feature dies and stamps that do the stitching for you, or why not draw your own stitched designs by hand?

So many possibilities!

Here's what the design team got up to for this dare:
