For my dare I'd like you to make cards with
....no, not actually made with wheels, you can still use card and paper ;-), so you don't need to go and steal the ones from the car or the kids' bikes and write a message on them!
I'd like you to feature wheels ON your cards, or as part of them. So you could have cars, bikes etc on your card, or maybe you could actually make a card that moves along on some wheels..... or how about a card that has one of those "wheels" inside it (fixed with a brad) and little apertures in the actual card front so that when you move the wheel the message appears in the aperture? (I hope that makes sense)
Anyway, I'm sure you can get your creative cogs moving and come up with loads of inventive and different ways to get a wheel or two into your cards.
I really hope you like the sound of this and will join in with my challenge- I'd love it if you'd have a go.
The Team has come up with some ideas to get you thinking and they are on the DCM Blog as usual, so please pop over and have a little look. If you leave a message to say you've made a card we'll wheel round to your blog to take a look.
Here's my card. It caused me much anguish and cost the earth a few more trees because I kept going wrong when I was making the darned thing - you have no idea just how many ways I found to make a muck up of this - and it looks soooo blinking simple, doesn't it?
The card has a tiny extra fold at the top to make sure it stands up correctly - but I'm not sure it was necessary tbh, I think I just made extra work for myself!
The wheels to move but we don't have a video camera so you'll have to take my word for that.
Not sure who the paper is by, I found it in the box and I think its been there for yonks. Only after I made this card did I remember the gorgeous "For Peeps Sake" papers that would have been perfect for this.......
Other stuff I used: various bits of Bazzill, Cuttlebug dies, scraps of lace, brads, Glossy Accents
I've had a bit of a spree lately - I hadn't ordered any new stash for ages and was feeling parcel-deprived. Thought I'd share some pics of the goodies that have been arriving over the last few days
I've been looking at Tracy's Creative Treasures shop for the last few weeks and trying not to indulge in buying new Primas. The other day I succombed though and bought this lot and boy are they gorgeous, the ones in the tubes are fabric and there are different shades plus spotty ones in each. The ones in the mini paint cans are paper, there are two sizes of flower in each can and such pretty colours - might have to sit on my hands to stop myself going back for more.
I made this card for Nickynoo's cardlift challenge on the JB forum using some the aqua flowers. I can't say I'm thrilled with the card but I was desperate to use those flowers and needed a good excuse!
Naughty Caroline of Bubbly Funk has been tempting me with some delicious new chipboard. The shop specialises in chipboard - though there are plenty of other goodies to indulge yourself with in there too!
Just after I'd taken delivery of this little lot Caroline announces that she's added even more new stuff to the shop (I will not buy, I will not buy, I will not buy....yet, anyway). She's sourcing wonderful chopboard bits and bobs from all over the place - that lot above is from Canada and Australia so if you like using the chunky stuff then Bubbly Funk is where to head for all the newest items you can get here in the UK
Finally - because I'm saving the pics of all the new ribbon till another day - one more card for the cardlift challenge. I like this one better. papers are *Near & Dear* from the wonderful Dream Street papers - ohhhh I do like DSP, they have such fantastic ranges to choose from,All for now, thanks for visiting - please don't go without saying "hello"
