Pin It


It's my turn to set the Daring Cardmakers Dare this week.

In New Zealand at the moment it's winter and cold and dark. No snow here as temperatures don't get that low but still low enough that that's all anyone thinks about and anyone talks about. So this dare should be easy for those in the colder climes of the Southern Hemisphere but in the North it may be a little trickier. Use images, use colour, use embellishments that make you feel cold and remind you of winter.As always we love to see your cards so post them on your blog and leave us a comment so we can come over and admire them. If you don't have a blog EMail them to us to be placed in our gallery.

It was also my turn to choose the July Guest Designer and I've chosen the extremely talented Beverley. See her blog here.

Here's my card:

I dotted a bit of 2 way glue with dazzling diamonds in the centre of the background flowers which hasn't shown up well in the photo. It gives the card a more icy feel.
Supplies used are all Stampin' Up! - Boho Backgrounds Stamp Set, Soft Sky, Whisper White, Blue Bayou Cardstock, Blue Bayou Classic Ink Pad, 1 1/4 circle punch, 1 3/8 circle punch and circle scallop punch, paper cutter, snail, 2 way glue, dazzling diamonds.

What a freezing morning it is here in the valley, I'm sure it lightly snowed about an hour ago so there's bound to be some on the hills behind! Brrrr..!!
Love your card, Keryn, that looks a great stamp set!
What a b....r about Dave's pens disappearing, best of luck with Trade Me.

Do we leave our challenge with you? I'm not sure I'm understanding the situation. Anyway I made a simple winter card. It is posted on my blog. If I need to send this some place else, please let me know.

When you get to my blog, choose Sassafras and Gingerbread to see my card.

I just changed the link on my post with the winter card to go right to daring cardmakers when it gets clicked on.

Thanks again, for your help.

what a beautiful card, Keryn! wow - it's hard to picture cold when it's 97 degrees Fahrenheit. We're in the height of summer with high heat and even higher humidity. But, I'm going to do a Christmas in July card night so I'll have something "cold" posted later in the month. :)
