Last year I did my first Iron Craft challenge with Gayatri (Hiya Gayatri!) and it was awesome fun! She came up with this really nice name for the challenge… I had some really long hard to type name before that 😉
Did you miss it? Then read on to find out what Iron Craft is…
I enjoy watching Iron Chef on Food Network where a newbie chef cooks against a celebrity chef using the same ingredients to decide “whose cuisine reigns supreme!”. That got me thinking of a similar idea for papercrafting…. Wouldn’t it be fun if I could make a card with a celebrity crafter using the same “ingredients”? Leaving out the competition aspect, this would provide such a great inspiration to everyone and would be so much fun!
If you are an avid papercrafter like me, then you probably know its hard to craft without inspiration! I spend as much time browsing blogs and glued to my Pinterest boards as I spend on crafting itself. In the course of my papercrafting, I have followed many “celebrities” whose work I admire!
Iron Craft is my way of shaking hands with these crafters and playing along with them. My way of learning from and getting inspired by the best!
What will we do? My invited guest blogger and I will both use the same “ingredients” to make a card. The “ingredients” could range from the same stamp set to the same colors to…. I shouldn’t give out all the spoilers at once, should I? 😉
And now Iron Craft is back as a weekly feature on my blog! Yes thats right, its going to be weekly every Monday starting next week! So keep checking back for lots of inspiration and lots of fun!!
That sounds like such a great idea! I love the cooking show Iron Chef, so I can’t wait to see what you both create!
