Wishi Washi

It's Friday so it's time for another Daring Cardmakers challenge! This week Jo has set us the task of making a card featuring washi tape. Here's my go at the challenge:

I do have quite a few rolls of washi tape to play with. It's great stuff for pretty packaging and just for having around to provide an instant pop of colour to your projects, I love it! I tried to carry on with the stationary theme of the tape and I picked out a label sticker, (Crate Paper) some grid patterned paper, (Pink Paislee) and then used the washi tape for my colour folding it over a piece of twine to make a little banner. The little scallopy bit at the bottom is actually a stand it's not part of the card. My shelf is all clean and polished which is not conducive to making cards stand up on it today so I had to use my little metal standimajig.

Pop on over to Daring Cardmakers to have a go at this weeks challenge and to see the stunning cards the DT have created.... www.daringcardmakers.blogspot.com

Daring Card Makers - Kitchenalia

This week we've been sent to the kitchen to look for inspiration for our cards. :)

I began with the super cute Modern Homemaker papers and went for a fun retro look. The main retro lady is from the October Afternoon Modern Homemaker sticker sheet as is the paper with the kitchen goodies on it. The floral paper is from the October Afternoon Sidewalks collection and the other pinky paper is a Sassafras one. I went for a pop up card and made the banner the pop up piece so as well as being a decorative bit that's the bit that makes the sticker pop from the card front. It looks like she's steppng out of the card to mop the surface the card's sat on lol.
I don't think I've ever made a 'happy new kitchen' card but why not? :-D
Check out all the lovely DT cards this week with their kitchenalia inspired designs and have your own go leaving a link so we can come and peek, http://daringcardmakers.blogspot.com

Daring Cardmakers - Miraculous Social Networks


I'm back to update my long neglected blog. I haven't had much time to do anything over Christmas and new year and to be honest I also needed a break from everything. I wish I could say I feel refreshed and ready to tackle the new year but I've been so busy catching up this past week I'm shattered! lol

Well here we go with another daring cardmakers challenge. This week we have a fantastic challenge from Zuzana to make a card inspired by the social networking sites we know and love {?}.
I had to really think about this one but then I had a brain wave as I'm still making one or two more thank you cards and this idea just popped in my head to use the Facebook like button.
I used lots of leftover bits of paper, a Sassafras boarder sticker and some October Afternoon mini market alphabet stickers. The felt flower is homemade.

Hope you had a lovely holiday time! Don't forget to have a go at this weeks DCM challenge, http://daringcardmakers.blogspot.com
