DCM Friday Challenge

End of Year Dare

This was this weeks Challenge on the DMC Site.

Hi All. Today we have decided to revisit your most favourite dares of 2007. The four top dares, decided by the number of comments you made on them are (in no particular order): 'buttons', 'ribbons', ...'and cut' and 'frames'. We would like you to use this week as many of those dares as you like to make your card in any theme and any style.

I have used both Ribbon and buttons with some hand cutting to make the frame for the topper.
The image I found on google, I then used my 3D cardbuilder2 to make the backing paper, Everything was matted and layered onto Pink and gold card before sticking onto a cream base card

Exploding box

My first attempt at making an Exploding box
View from the top
Side view, I love this ribbon, It was in a bargain box at Tesco,
The box opened at last, The photos were taken at the evening party after my nieces wedding last July, They are of my Husband and I daughter and two sons

More layers

I have enjoyed making this box, i hope to make a few more in the future.

My brother has his 60th Birthday party in a few weeks, I think it might be a nice idea to take lots of photos on the night and make a box as a reminder

DCM Challenge

Daring Cardmakers asked us to make a card but
there MUST be an element of handcutting somewhere.

Lots of hand cutting on this card,
I was busy most of yesterday getting all the bits cut out ready for this card.
I just had to glue it all together this afternoon. It was still a bit wet while getting photographed.

Its one I have made before and was asked to make again for a dear friend to give to her mum for her birthday on Saturday.

It has all my favourite things Decoupage Flowers, Feathers , silver mirri and lots of Purple and lilac card stock.
It was the ideal card for this challenge, I had to rush and get a photo before she took it

I`ve Been Tagged

I`ve been tagged by Anne, There are five questions to answer.
So here goes

1. If you could have 100.00 worth of scrapbook paper or assorted embellishments, which would you choose?
It would have to be the Embellishments, I have lots of Scrabooking papers that i just hate to cut up, ( I tend to look at them and put them back safe) I always seem to print papers from my collections of CDs, Then i can always print some more

2. If you had to choose between using only stamps or rubons, which would you choose?
This would have to be stamps, I think you can get more from a stamp eg change colours, Embosse it, glitter it,Etc.

3. If you knew how to do both awesome cards and layouts but could only do one for a whole year...which would you do?
Love making cards but it would have to be layouts,I would love more time to do scrapbooking, also i get to keep all the lovely layouts that i make, Scrapbooking is a very personal and special way to record all those lovely memories.

4. Would you rather own a scrapbooking store or have your own scrapping room at home...(can't have both he he he)
A store, to play with all the nice goodies, also to be able to have a large stash of crafting stuff away from home.
Plus it would be great to run scrapbooking crops and meet lots of crafting buddies.

5. And last but not least, what is your CURRENT cardmaking or scrapping style.....
My style at the moment is Busy, I like to put as many diffrent papers ,embellishments and layers on as i can. I have to say to myself " Wendy thats enough you will ruin it, less is more".
I think that is why I like the bookatrix board, you can really pull out all the stops with those cards..

I now have to tag five others, this will be hard as most of the bloggers i know have been tagged already.

Daring Cardmakers Friday Challenge

This weeks Challenge was to use some ribbon on your card, I Enjoyed this one so much I have made Two , I have lots of ribbon and love to use it on most anything
The Card above is a parchment card, I like to use ribbon to attach the parchment paper to my cards, I find glue or double sided tape can some times show through, ribbon gives a nicer effect than using brads to attach the design The second card I have used a brass stencil, I have dry embossed then coloured using chalks.
A corner punch and lemon gingham ribbon to finish( my mum liked this one and has just pinched it for her friends birthday later this week)

Daring Cardmaker Challenge

This is my first attempt at a Daring Cardmaker Challenge.
It was to make a post card and to send it through the post, As it has to be posted i have not 3D any of the images, I have kept them flat in the hope that they will not get knocked off in the post.

I have printed out all the elements, and cut them out to stick down onto the post card.
All the images came from digital scrapbook place, It is one of my favourite scrapbooking sources.
I have put a link on the right.

I did enjoy this challenge and look forward to doing some more
