Daring Cardmakers - Home Themed Card Challenge

Hi everyone,

I hope everyone is well. Thanks so much to everyone who has commented or read my last post. I am fairly new to book reviews, but they are great fun to do. Last year I joined in with some of the challenges on the Daring Cardmaker's blog, and they are continuing this year so I had to have another go. It's great fun to see how everyone interprets a theme, which this time round is HOME.

Items used:

Nuvo Glitter Drops - Blue Lagoon
White card base
Blue patterned card
Colouring pencils
Black Ink Pad
Kraft Card
At Home Stamp (Kirstie Allsopp kit)
Mama Makes Mandala Mania Stamps




The inspiration for this card started off with the stamps; they were a cheeky purchase when I was a member of the Mama Makes design team. I'd cut a few out and coloured them but wasn't sure what to do with them, until I saw the Daring Cardmakers challenge. I thought it would be good to cut them in half and use them like curtains to frame a cut out window frame. I pieced together the rest of the card using items from my stash listed above, and decorated a bit with my new Nuvo Glitter Drops (highly recommend Nuvo, they have so many pretty colours, and very precise application).

Hope you have enjoy this blog, and do check out the Daring Cardmakers and see how everyone else has responded to the challenge. There is sure to be a variety of designs.
