Hello and welcome to The Daring Cardmakers blog!
We are a team of card-makers from the UK, mainland Europe and India 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! - it's Sharon here this week to set the challenge. Firstly thanks to everyone that took part in Samm's challenge last week, there really were some gorgeous cards for the Hole in One theme, I really enjoyed visiting everyone's blogs for a peek.
The theme for my dare this week is:
You're so Sweet
I'd like to see sweets on your cards - doesn't have to just be sweets, can be sweet things, like cakes, ice-creams etc.
And for some sweet inspiration, here are the design team's cards:
It's Nat here back with another dare. Thanks to all those who joined in with our Jubilee-inspired colour challenge last week - there were some lovely cards indeed. And it was also lovely to see how some folks were celebrating the Jubilee. :)
This week the design team was set the challenge of creating a card featuring resin embellishments.
I have totally fallen in love with these items. Not only are scrapbooking manufacturers creating their own lines of these pretty little additions to go with their paper collections, but there are so many etsy stores and lovely online shops offering resin embellishments in every style, size, and colour you can think of.
Here are some of the ones that have ended up in the design team's stash!
So please contact us at DCM_enquiries@hotmail.co.uk so we can organise sending you the stamp set.
Congratulations to you - and to everyone else do have a look at the fabulous stamp sets that Imagine That has created
This week it's the return of our monthly colour dare and I'm sure our UK visitors can guess what colours I've chosen! :)
Yes, in honour of the upcoming festivities going on this weekend to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee the colours I've chosen are Red, White, and Blue. Well it was hard not to... as they are everywhere at the moment. :)
Here's a gorgeous pic as inspiration showing just how lovely this colour combo can be in various shades and hues:
