wk 11... Make Anything But a Square Card - Digi Choosday Crafting Challenge

Happy Choosday everyone.

That means it’s time for another challenge here at Digi Choosday.

Over the past few years square cards seem to be the most popular shape of card to make whether it be 5x5 or 8x8. So this week we thought we would rebel against the “norm” and show you that fantastic creations don’t have to be square. 
So we would like to see 
anything but a square card!

You can make anything you like maybe a card, a scrapbook layout of even home d├ęcor. As long as it follows the theme for this week. We don’t have many rules but check them out in the side bar if you need to - you don't have to use our products to enter so you can use anything you wish!

We give you two weeks to enter so that means you have until 31st March 2015 to enter and the winners will be announced on 7th April 2015.

The random winner (chosen by Random.org) will receive a 
£10.00 / $15 (USD) voucher for the digi store 
and our Top 3 Favourites will all win a FREE digi of your choice.

The winner and top 3 for week four can be found at the bottom of this post.

So let’s see what the design team have made for us.

Scatty Jan For my shaped card I have used the wonderful Rose Budd collection CD also available as a full download here.  All the papers, sentiments flowers and emblies are all from the collection. The letters to spell Mum are from the Octavia Moonfly Collection.. I just added a little bling, a few pearls and a few cut butterflies. I love making up these sorts of cards, and the collections over at Polkadoodles are so good for them.

Nikki - I do not make many cards that are not square shaped, but I do like doing it every so often.... I used the Grand Caliber Labels 1 for the background shape, it is hard to see but I swear it is there...... The image I used.... (my first Dollie Daydream!) She is gorgeous! I loved inking her up with my Copics..... She can be bought as a single digital or you can get her with the Dollie Daydream Goes East collection. Oddly enough, I used paper from the Christmas Joy collection..... It was that certain green I was looking for.........


Caz  For my shaped card i have used the fab digi Keyboards Boy.  Coloured with Graph its. You can also get this digi along with all the papers,  embellies and words on the fab Work n Play 8 as a Download or if prefer a CD.

Lynda: I love making different shaped cards so this challenge was so much fun for me. . I used the papers, embellishments and a colored digi stamp from the beautiful Baby Boom collection, you can find this as a download collection here. The baby brother sentiment comes from the New baby sentiment collection which you can find here. Have fun xx 

Dawn I decided to make a gift card, rather than a card for a change & this fits in with the theme of this challenge & used the gorgeous papers that are on the fabulous Love & Kisses collection, which can be found here. There are some fabulous papers, which can of course be used for so many different themes. I also used & decoupaged a rose from the embellies section of the same CD.

Kate - I went with a 6"x4" oblong card and cut  the top off at an angle to make it a bit different. I used a pretty butterfly paper from the Winston Deluxe Full Collection along with some plain pale blue card and white card embossed with dots.....

Jane – Hi everyone!  So I went for a circle card for my make this week using the gorgeous Octavia Bird in Hand  and papers and elements from the Tail Feather Bundle which is a stunning peacock inspired collection.  I stumbled upon this whilst browsing all the incredible designs in Nikky’s shop which is jam packed full of yummy treasure, so go check it out!   Enjoy your day! xxx

Monica-When you give the chance to do "anything", I'll take your word and get the chance to try out new things. For this week project, I´m using the gorgeous Eden Collection precoloured images,  over printable waterproof vinyl. I printed out the lovely precoloured Eden Butterflies image, and added some butterflies, a tag and a sentiment, all included in the Eden Collection. To cut the vinyl I used "print and cut" feature from my Cameo. And finally applied everything to the glass bottle with transfer paper.

Tanya ....Oh, I do love creating cards that are anything but square and so this week I’ve used one of the fab templates from the Work & Play 9 2XL Love Collection in the shape of a wedding cake.  I’ve printed the template out a few times and then decoupaged the flowers and added some bling in the form of glitter, three resin roses and liquid pearls.  I’ve used the scrabble tiles from the Love collection to spell out the word ‘Wedding’ down the right hand side of the card.  Such a simple but great make.
Wendy - For this weeks card, I've done a double easel. My image, which I've coloured using my Graph'Its, is from the Cherry Blossom Lane CD, but the digis from this disc are available to downlaod from the Digi store. I've used Noah. The backing papers, flag bunting and the sentiment are all from Work & Play 4.

Yvonne - Hello there! Well this week I decided to go mental and make a 3D project. I'm in no way skilled at this but with the help of the Winston Collection, which you can get as a Digi Download or as a CD-Rom, I'm not sure I could have went wrong! I decided to make an exploding box. I have never done one of these but I really enjoyed it. I cheated and used my Cameo but if you llove measuring I am sure you would manage no bother at all. Alas that is not me! I used Etty Shy as my character, she is part of the Collections above or you can get her as a digi image on her own, here.  A few embellishemnts and sentiments from the collection and I had my decorations. The paper bow is also from the collection.  Loads more photos on my blog!


Anjie - To create the shape of the card I have used the Flower shape art 6 from Dutch Doobadoo. The image I have used for this is from the cute Sugarplum Daisy CD, and the papers are from the Octavia Moonfly download, as are the flowers and the butterfly. The fence and lamp post are laser art from Dutch Doobadoo. I coloured the image in with some cheap pencils that I picked up while I was in Egypt.

Great makes from everyone I’m sure you will agree - add your entry using the linky tool below.
