Welcome to Quirky Crafts Challenges

Welcome to Quirky Crafts Challenges the place where any craft project is allowed.

We're a small design team with big inspiration.

On the first Sunday of the month, at 6pm UK time, we will set a new challenge which will close on the 28th of that month at midday. The DT will pick their top three favourites and you could win a prize and join us as a Guest Designer. Winners are posted on the first Sunday in the month (midday usually) before the new challenge - don't forget to come and check if you are a winner.

Hi ladies, it's my turn (Gaby) to set the challenge.

  To see who won the last challenge see the previous post below this one HERE

And this time we want to see "Feathers" in your makes.
Anything with feathers goes: it could be in your image or added in your project.

 Our fabulous sponsors are:

Here for the last time, because Sweet Pea Stamps are closing down on 25th Nov, and we would like to thank them for sponsoring us this year and providing us with gorgeous images to use.


 1st place: From Crafty Ribbons:
 a £10 voucher .

2nd place: 7 images from Bugaboo
3rd place: 4 images form Sweet Pea Stamps.


 I am using a Sweet Pea Stamps Digi called “Coni Fong’s Buttercup.”
The digi is colored with Copics. The feathers are by Creatology. The  background is embossed with a Darice Embossing Folder called Woodgrain. I thought it looked like a feather design. The ribbon butterfly I made myself with a piece of floral wire, 2 pieces of ribbon 3” long and a crystal gem.  The flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts. The card is 5” x 6 ½”.

Margreet used Sandra Caudwell's Glamour Chick from Sweet Pea, with real feathers and a lovely colour combination. Nice one Margreet.
My project is to use a cloud embossing folder where you use white ink to give depth to the clouds and use the beautiful digi Birthday Bird Trio from Bugaboo, I love my card. (We love it too Ledia).


I developed a small lamp, decorate with this cute little angel  Bugaboo Angels - A Little Birdie our sponsor BUGABOO.

For my card I used the lovely Fancy Chibi provided by Bugaboo Stamps.

My today´s project using the lovely Lucy Loo from our generous sponsor Sweet Pea Stamps. I used Spectrum Noir Alcohol Makers, feathers stream and gold buttons.


I love Sandra Caudwell's birds, and this one is called Pilgrim Crow and is from Sweet Pea Stamps. I found some real feathers and a feather charm as well as my feathered friend on the pumpkin! The spotty ribbons are from Crafty Ribbons of course!
