You have until Friday 5th September to enter at noon GMT. Just please follow the rules in the sidebar.

We'll announce last time's winners next week! 

Let's see what the team have created for us...

Scatty Jan Ohhhhh don't you just love snowflakes , I love this shape for a card . I have used the scrummy little angel from the Work and Play festive Hollybobs collection. (sentiment is also from this collection), The little Angel is also now available as a clear stamp, you can find her here .Coloured her in with Graph'It Markers with a little dusting of glitter on her trims. The paper is from Dollie Daydream Girl talk collection xx

Samantha K - This was my first ever exploding box :)  For this make, all elements and images used were from the Work and Play Hollybobs CD, it really is a scrummy CD, you should go check it out!
As there were so many elements to this project I decided to save my colouring arm and a bit of time and use pre-coloured images from the CD, aren't they wonderful?! For more details and more piccies feel free to take a sneek at my blog xx
Asha - The Work & Play Festive Hollybobs Collection is the perfect CD for all your Christmas makes. Everything on this card, except the lace trim and bling, is from this fab CD. I coloured the image with Graph'It markers. It is also available as a clear stamp.

Cara    I made a glittery sparkly easel card fr this challenge, I used a Design sheet and two backing papers from the Festive Hollybobs CD, the image I used is also available as a clear stamp here but if you aee as impatient as me she is also available as a digi stamp here.  You can also purchase the design sheet I used as a single laser cut sheet here, there is so much choice and something to suit every crafter!

Melanie - I used the brand-new Festive Hollybobs CD again for this one, but focussed purely on the lovely printable envelope sentiments to create this card. I printed the sentiments twice, once onto kraft cardstock and again onto a thinner white card, then cut my elements and layered them up. The holly and the paper strip are also taken from the CD, then I used a doily, sequins, thick twine and a mini peg to finish off my design.

 Cheremane - I've had so much fun with the Festive Hollybobs Cd  i'm sure you will agree the Little Elf is so adorable and seeing the theme is Get Organised For Xmas I decided to make an easel note pad for all those little Xmas must do's notes. Little Elf is also available as a Digi  he has lots of Friends to so go take a Peek.

Anna - This time I decided to make a round card. I used blue paper from  Festive Hollybobs Cd, as well as paper, from which I cut out spruce branches, a star, and accessories like doily, mistletoe and gingerbread girl - everything from Picknix Collection 2...Gingerbread Twist CD  . I arranged all elements in layers with the help of foam squares. I also added my favorite - tulle and some ribbon, hawthorn berries, cardboard presents and crystals. It is awesome, how much fun one can have while making a card - I love making Christmas projects!  

Gorgeous creations this week and lots of inspiration for the festive season rapidly approaching!

Remember you have until 5th September to enter!
See you next week!

** Work & Play Collection 6 - BONUS EDITION

Now for the Design Teams inspiration this week.

Scatty Jan - I love these pop up cards so much detail can be added yet they lay flat for posting - I have used four scrummy characters this time and there all having there fun in the sun! I have used the Caravanner girl and the deckchair lad from work and play collection 3 and the Swimmer and Diver from work and play collection 4. All the characters have been coloured with Graph'It markers xx





AnnaI associate summer not only with vacation, sun or the beach, but mostly with flowers and the wedding season. That’s why this time I made a layered wedding card, in delicate colors of blue and beige, from the Rose Budd CD using papers and flowers, which I cut out myself and added to the bouquet. I also used other flowers, tulle, string, pearls, and lace so that the card would look even more delicate.


Jenny - My card for our Fun in the Sun challenge is from A Double Sprinkle of Kraft and I love the idea of these two sweet owls sitting in the sun enjoying their swing together. Full details are on my blog.



Cheremane - I have used the fabulous Double Sprinkle of Kraft Cd for our Fun In The Sun Challenge . As soon as I saw this little girl she reminded me of a summers day walk in the fields with pretty summer flowers and fluttering butterflies.


Samantha K - I decided to make a 3D scene for my project and have tried to do a bit of a beachy theme. Right at the back (where you can almost not see it lol, there is a sign that says 'Warm Hello and Happy Birthday', so this could be given to someone as a form of card :p
My creation is made up mainly with elements from the Dollie Girl Talk Collection. Including the papers that were used to create the surf boards and umbrella etc. For more photos and details, please pop over to my blog :)




Asha - Here's a bright and sunny card... which also happens to be quick and easy. An all-round winner! For the fun pinwheel background I used papers from the Sugar Birdies CD. The adorable flower girl is from Bonbon Belles CD and the greeting topper is from Fredericka Mini CD Collection. To finish some sheer ribbon and plenty of bling.

Karon - My card is made up of a few different CDs.  I decided to use the pre-coloured swimmer off of Work & Play 4, along with the wave papers and banner.  The cloud paper and beach hut are from the Bonbon Belles Double CD collection and then finally the sentiment tickets are from the wonderful Cherry Blossom Lane CD.  All layered to add a little dimension.


Cara - My card is made using the Cherry Blossom Lane CD, I printed everything on water colour card to give a real soft feel and added dimension by creating a dome front out of acetate and added flowers and birds also from the CD.


Melanie - For this card I've focussed on how summer makes me think of flowers and pretty sundresses! I used the Dolly Daydream Girl Talk CD for this one, with the addition of a doily, some handmade flowers, pearl lace trim, ribbon and a stick pin. I also curled some purple twine with scissors to create my own tendrils for the flowers.

Stunning DT creations to inspire you!

 Jenny - Well, Clash of Colours for this challenge and yes it certainly was!  So far from my comfort zone but lots of fun, I've used a digi and backing papers from the Dollie Daydream Girl Talk Collection, full details on my blog.

Bev here with another fabulous challenge. I think I may have gone a bit overboard with the clashing but hey it's all about having fun, right? I used the wonderfully versatile Sugarplum Daisy CD Rom. I used the papers to make a wacky/clashy background and then coloured a couple of the digi bees (soooo cute!) with my blendable pencils. The sentiment is also from the same CD. Just a couple of die cut circles & some handmade flowers complete my design.


Yvonne - For this challenge I opted to use Frederika - Billie Sporty which can be found on the Frederika Mini Collection, for the challenge theme of 'Clash of Colours', I opted to use orange and purple. I found the perfect papers to use in the Polkadoodles Shop in the Digiworld Downloadable Section and I used the papers from the Witchie Witchie 2013 Download Bundle.  The car is from the Digi Download Collection, the sentiment is from the same collection. I die cut some flowers and added gems and ribbon from my stash.


Katie - Hello there well I thought this challenge would be difficult but I had to stop myself! I could have gone on forever. I used Dollie Daydream Goes East Digi Stamp and for the backing paper I used Work & Play 3  I then used handmade embellishments and Lace. Cannot wait to see all your ideas, have fun and Keeeeeeeeeeep Crafting Katie XX


Sue hi this challenge is clash of colours. I used  Dollie Daydreams Girl talk I coloured up Dollie Daydream in pink and red with my copic's. I cut base card with Go Kreate die  and used the papers from same cd. Flowers I made with same backing paper and sentiments also from cd
                                                        

Anjie - On my card the image is from the fabulous Work & Play collection 4 and is coloured with my Graph'It Markers. The papers are from the Dollie Daydream Goes East CD and the Sugarplum Daisy CD. The beach hut and postcard are both Tattered Lace Dies. The sentiment, swirls and hearts are all from the Premium Craft Brands Postcard Stamp Set. I have distressed the edges of the papers, die cuts, sentiment, swirls and image with the Violet Pan Pastel. Finally I added some faux stitching around the edges.
Susan - .I thought I would make a tag ,so I covered it with this amazing Lime Green paper from Bonbon Belles I just love this shade its so jucey and makes your mouth water .I have also used one of the digi from the same CD and coloured her with my amazing Graph'it Markers.

Asha - I'm going with something quick and easy to make from one my all time favourite CDs - Sugar Birdies. It's the very first CD, one that launched the entire range of lovely crafty goodness. With googlie eyes and bling. it would make a fun little birthday card for any age.

Claire C I went for a combination of red and green for my clash and these colours are perfect for a Christmas project. I've made a book card using some of the gorgeous papers and design sheets from Festive Hollybobs, the digital stamp is from the same collection and I've coloured her with Graph'It Markers

The rules are in the side bar over there ----->

Scatty Jan - For my colour clash I went for pinks and reds, wow they do clash! I used the lovely Dollie Daydream goes east backback digi which I coloured with Graph'It Markers. The Papers and flowers are Dollie Daydream Girk Talk collection xx


Melanie - I chose to use some elements from the Dolly Daydream Goes East CD for this card, because of its lovely bright colour palette. I absolutely adore this watercolour-effect patterned paper, which I trimmed around and attached to an acetate card front. I chose to clash the pinks, reds and purples with a bright turquoise, which I think gives a lovely summery effect. The sentiment, paper banners and the dragonfly are all taken from the CD, and I embellished with a little bit of ribbon, a paper flower, button and gems.

Karon - Wow - great minds think alike.  I too have used the Dollie Daydream Goes East collection.  I made up a fan using black card and added a patterned layer, and some pearl dots.  The sentiments and butterfly are also from this wonderful collection.  The base butterfly paper is from the Fredericka CD and the blue polka dot paper is from the Bonbon Belles CD.  My printer was out of some ink, so I had to raid my stash of papers and luckily already had the fan and butterflies cut from previous sessions.


AnnaLately I’ve been making more cards using torn paper. I decided to make such a card for today’s inspiration. I chose a beautiful purple paper from Dolly Daydream Goes East CD , which in itself is decorative thanks to its texture; I cut it, tore it and arranged it in layers. Afterwards, I glued white lace underneath. On the surface, I arranged flower decorations and attached crystals, which reflect the color of the large, pink flower and my favorite tulle. I also glue on a piece of torn, pink paper to maintain unity of color and design. 



Sandie - Hello there, I'm here with some inspiration for Clash of colours! I really enjoyed this one and got to mix inks with digi's again and I hope you like the result. I used two fab digi's of Koi carp from Dollie Daydream Goes East CD from Polkadoodles (as the orient is full of colour) and I coloured them with Graph'it Marker pens as the vibrant colours from this brand was absolutely perfect for the job at hand. The background is made with distress inks onto satin silk card and detailing with a black micron pen..full details of how I made it are on my blog...happy crafting and I can't wait to see what you all make :)

Cara - I also chose to use the Dollie Daydream Goes East CD and Graph'it Markers  for this theme.  With the bright papers of the CD and the bold colours of the markers they are a perfect match!


Cheremane - Hi there wow where's the shades its a tad bright in here. I have used the fabulous Hairdresser  from Work & Play CD 2, this CD is so much fun, if only I had the guts to die my hair this colour. The papers and sentiments are all from Polkadoodles CD's.


Samantha K - I made my card using papers and elements from the Dollie Daydream goes East CD.  The image is called Dollie Daydream - Glitz and is available for download.  I used two papers to create the background and printed parts of the top paper twice so that I could cut out some of the lanterns and decoupage them to give a bit of depth. The image is coloured with Promarkers and wink of stella. I went for greens and pinks as they clash great ;) I also used some wink of stella on some of the lanterns and lights, just to add a bit of glitz (although sadly you can't see it in the photos).  The peacock feathers were cut with my silhouette and coloured with distress inks. The sentiment which is also from the CD, was coloured using distress inks and wink of Stella, this is also raised like some of the lanterns. xx

Fabulous creations!  Lots of inspiration to get you creative juices flowing.
Now it's you turn so come along and enter the new challenge!! Don't forget you can win that great Work & Play collection and you have until 8th August to enter! 
Also, please remember that there are a MAX of 2 entries per person.

Have you seen our fabulous new Christmas collection yet? It's soooo cute it's inspiring us all to make an early start with our Crimbo cards - yes, typical we're in a mini heatwave and we're making Christmas cards LOL! Well, at least we're all organised!

You can see the winners of our last challenge at the bottom of this post, but first let's see what the team have made this week!....

Cara
I chose to use the fab new release Festive HollybobsI just love the designs sets on the CD and I used the reindeer one to create my super sparkly card.  I re-sized the images and elements in word and added a couple of extra backing papers before covering everything in stickles!

Karon - Add a little twinkle, well I decided to add a lot :-)  I used the pre-coloured image of the Christmas pudding and decided to enlarge it and make it into an easel card.  My twinkle, chocolate coloured gems as the currents.  All the elements are from the fabulous new Work & Play Festive Hollybobs collection.  I used one of the papers as the icing, and layered the holly to add a little depth.

Scatty Jan I used one of the scrummy little characters from the Work and Play Festive Hollybobs collection , the sentiment is also from there. Coloured with Graph'It markers . I added some glamour dust to her dress and cuffs and some fun flock to her ear muffs. Attached a little thin tinsel ribbon and made a little Christmas Hanger xx
Asha - I too couldn't stay away from the Work and Play Festive Hollybobs CD. I made a trifold card using papers, images and elements from this bumper CD. To finish my project, I added sheer white ribbon, lots of red bling and Stickles for extra twinkle. The rest of the trifold can be seen on my blog.
Cheremane - With a theme of add Twinkle I just couldn't resist using the new Work and Play Festive Hollybobs CD and how cute is Santa and with all the white fluffy trim its cries out for lots of Twinkle. The image and papers along with the sentiment and presents are all on the CD, I have also added some webbing, glossy accents and lots of stickles for extra twinkle. xx
Samantha K - I normally colour everything myself (and believe me I have been colouring busily some of these wonderful new Christmas images from the Festive Hollybobs work and Play CD) They are so much fun and so beautiful to colour. But you will have to wait to see these :p But for this decoration I used the gorgeous pre-coloured images, so you can see just how scrummy they are. I put the decoration template on my silhouette virtual mat and picked the images i wanted to use and put them in place. Everything was then cut out and stuck together and finally each side has some glitter on it, whether it be on the icing or spots on a scarf ;p You can see the other sides of the decoration on my blog...
Anjie - On my card the image and papers are from the new Work and Play Festive Hollybobs Collection. The image is coloured with my Graph'It Markers. The flowers are from my stash and the die cuts are from Tattered Lace. The rolled roses are made from the same papers as I've used on the card background.
Melanie - For this card I've used elements from the Work and Play Festive Hollybobs collection, using just a mini peg, cork mat and a couple of red gems from my stash to decorate. I glittered the Christmas tree with tacky glue and some iridescent glitter - I just love the effect of adding a little bit of twinkle to these traditional kraft colours and designs!

Anna My card is made in layers (using little foam squares) from green and red paper. I also used a boy, evergreen trees and a little deer fom Polkadoodles cd Work and Play Festive Hollybobs. I added tulle, which imitates snow, a ribbon, pompoms and hawthorn berries. The evergreens are decorated with glitter and powdered snow. I had lots of fun while making this card.




Ruth: I've kept it rather clean and simple this week and directly printed one of the cute characters from Festive Hollibobs directly onto my card blank. I've also used one of the pre-coloured digis and simply added some glitter glue, a snowflake charm and sparkly red embroidery thread.


Kevin My card is made using the fabulous New Work & Play Festive Hollybob Cd rom and of course my image is coloured with Graph'It Markers

Wow! Gorgeous makes from the team!
