    Exclamation 2019 card challenge - June

    Morning all!

    We're definitely embracing the summer vibes this month....

    06 - June pinspiration.jpg

    You can of course embrace the theme of peaches/fruit (after all pineapples, watermelons, etc. are still on trend in the design world!) but if that's not your thing, there are plenty of other elements you could interpret on your card. One of them could be a real challenge for those who always work on a white background: using a neutral shade like grey or kraft as your background for a change. You may just find out your love it!

    If you're stumped, I've listed lots and lots of ideas over on my blog to kick start your creativity!

    Happy crafting!


    The full instructions and details for this year's challenge can be found in the intro post on my blog here and in the January intro post on the forum.

    Past prompts (and card ideas) are all tagged under 2019 card challenge on my blog so you can find them easily in one place.

    Also for those of you on Instagram, I'll be using the hashtag #2019handmadecardchallenge to share my projects there, so feel free to use this tag on Instagram as well!

    Points for this challenge:
    On top of the standard 5 points per any card you make, if you make a card for the monthly challenge you can now claim an extra 10 points!
    As with all the other UKS challenges you can only claim this once a month.


    * Prompts for the 2020 Card Challenge can be found here. *

    This looks lovely, I missed last months tending to our very old cat who was quite ill but has now made a good recovery.

    Very fresh and summery.

    Up with the lark for me. I have 12 cards that need making this month for birthdays, anniversaries, Fatherís Day etc. so I thought Iíd crack on as Iím off on holiday on Friday and I need 5 of them for while Iím away! Iím on my second card this morning already. Not sure Iím happy with this one so I may have another go at it if I get time.
    Here is the first one. The first one doesnít fit the brief but Iíll post it later in the other thread

    You do have a busy month Elaine !
    That card is beautiful. Love that ribbon clasp, just perfect. And the ribbon is very pretty.
    Have you done the greeting on the computer ? It looks great - lovely font

    Oh thank you! I feel much better about it now. Yes Alison I did print it. I’m fed up with never having the right sentiment stamp it seems

    Must remember to do that sometimes ! Sometimes the sentiments stamps you have just don’t work for one reason or another.

    Stunning card Elaine and I am the same, I almost always use the printer because I never have the right sentiment in the right font and the right size or even shape. Mind you, I started out making everything on the computer/printer back in the day before they called it 'digital', I didn't get into hand made so to speak until quite a while later and I still love to mix'n match.

    I love that ribbon and the clasp too, very elegant, she'll love it.

    I still haven't made my niece's anniversary card, I have so much to do and can't think to craft at all, this is terrible I should be back at her album again by now the the light nights but last night I was out until 9.45pm.
