May Stash Challenge


Hello!

It's my last challenge as hostess this month, and I have stash a challenge for you. I would like you to use "LACE" to make a Christmas/Winter Card.


I think we all have oddments of lace tucked away in our stash, so let's see what you can do with yours! Lace can be very pretty and delicate, but your card can be whatever style you can come up with, as long as there's lace used somewhere or somehow!


Here's some inspiration from the design team.



Our guest designer this weeks is:
Barbara ((Mala Mila)

May Theme Challenge

Hello again. 

We're back with a theme challenge for you, and I've chosen "STARS".


You can use the theme in any way you wish, and have one or many stars on your card.

I noticed lots of stars on the cards for our colour challenge last week - I hope you still have loads of creative ideas left for this challenge!

In case you are feeling a bit stuck, here's some inspiration from our talented design team to help.

May Colour Challenge

Thank you for all the wonderful entries to our sketch challenge.

This week we have a colour challenge for you - I'd like you to create a card using turquoise and gold.



You can use black, white and neutrals on your card as well as the challenge colours, but no other colours.

I love this colour combination - for me it's reminiscent of chocolate boxes, but there are so many ways to use it, as the design team have demonstrated!

Our guest designer this week is:

Tina Z
