Favorite Things

Kathy set this week's dare - the 1st dare of the 4th year of Daring Cardmakers!

It's me (Kathy) here with a challenge this week and as we're still in celebratory mood I thought we should have as much fun as possible and make a card to share and show our most favourite crafting bits and pieces.

"These are a Few of My Favourite Things"

This is a chance to go mad with the papers, embellishments, tools and styles you really love to use.
I'd like you to use at least 5 of your own personal favourite things on your card this week - if you can make it 10 then you can claim our DCM Gold Star - virtual, of course lol.
If you can't bear to give it away when it's full of all those treasured goodies, then make the card for yourself - you can always stick it up on your wall and enjoy seeing it every day!

So me not reading the dare properly made a card with 5 of the same thing on, which are one of my favorites; buttons! I then read the dare properly and realised that there are at least 10 of my favorite things on the card - it all worked out ok in the end!

I used;
5 buttons - Basic Grey, Doodlebug, Scenic Route
Rub ons - Melissa Frances
Patterned paper - Doodlebug
Cardstock - Bazzill
Ink - Tseukineko
Eyelets - Papermania
String - Ikea
Kraft card
Ribbon - Bazzill
Flowers - Prima
Image - Tigerfrogg
Floss - DMC

Lythan set the last dare of our 3rd year of Daring Cardmakers last week;

I can see clearly now
and I would love to see something clear on your card. It could be an acetate card, an acetate embellishment, a window cut in the card, clingfilm, OHP sheet, Mirror fragments - anything that shows that your card is clearly one of the best!

Acetate and clear stuff not being one of my favorite things! I made this;

Using a card bag to make a big rosette style flower!
Cardstock - Doodlebug
Paper - Cosmo Cricket
Flowers - Sizzix (cut from vintage paper)
Gems - Karen Foster
Ink - Colorbox
Ribbon - May Arts
Letter Stickers - Jenni Bowlin

TFL :)
