Hello and welcome to The Daring Cardmakers blog!
We are a team of card-makers from the UK and mainland Europe, who'll try to inspire and encourage you to make some wonderful cards.
Every Friday at about 10am UK time, one of our design team will post a new dare/challenge, along with our creations to get you inspired.
So go on, give it a try - we dare you!
Leave us a comment with a link to your card so that we can view your lovely creations too!
Hi Leo here to bring you this week's new dare! Thank you to everyone who made a colourful card for us last week for Sharon's colour picks.
This week I'd like you to to think:
Food Glorious Food
Create a card that features some form of food related design. It can be as simple as a food image or you could use some kind of food wrapping in your card or make up a punny food related greeting. So long as there's something food related on your card it's all good! When you've finished don't forget to pop back here and share what you've made.
Here's what the design team cooked up to inspire you this week:
Hello it's Sharon again. Thanks to everyone that joined in with my Clean and Simple challenge - we had lots of you joining in and it was lovely to see what you all came up with.
As it's the first Friday of the month it's time for our usual colour palette challenge. Rather than the usual palette or inspiration photo from Pinterest, I decided to find inspiration a bit closer to home - on my desk!
I want you to use the colours (and patterns if you wish) from my coffee cup.
To give you some ideas, here's what the team came up with:
Hi everyone, it's Sharon here with this week's dare. Firstly, thanks to everyone that joined in last week with our Festivals and Party dare, and thanks again to Docrafts for sponsoring our challenge. We'll be back soon with the name of the prize winner, so if you joined in, keep your fingers crossed!
After all that excitement, I'm going to calm things down a bit with a very simple dare. I'd like to see your CAS (clean and simple) card designs. You can create a card for any theme, and using any colours. I know this will be really hard for some people, and the easiest dare ever for others!
If this isn't your usual style, then hopefully these cards from the DT will give you some ideas.....
Good morning everyone, thanks for taking part in Jo's dare last week and sharing your fab creations.
It's Beckie here today with this weeks dare
Parties and Festivals
The Edinburgh festival is in full swing up here and there is loads to see and do, bright colours and vintage scenes fill the streets as the street entertainers preform for passers by.
So I'd like to see anything to do with Parties and Festivals on your card
The design team were sent some of the soon to be released (this September) Xcut dies, Christmas papers and embellishments to play with and wow you are just going to love what they have created. Once you have looked at the cards make sure you scroll down to see a giveaway from Docrafts ....
I know this is a cardmaking blog but I would love to share with you this awesome creation that Gez made with the Docrafts Papermania Victorian collection
And there's more, would you like to win this?!?!?!
Docrafts have given us some Roald Dahl goodies to give away to one lucky person who adds their link to their card for this challenge below!
How fantastic! So put on your party hats and let's have some fun!
