Let's see the inspiration from the team - we've been creating lots of lovely inspiration for you...it's Mother's Day soon in the UK so here are some gorgeous ideas for you...


Pam ~ For my card today, I've selected the Special Gift Elephant from Tons of Love Elephant set. I added the 'HUGE wishes' sentiment from the Spring Sentiments set near the balloons before printing and Copic coloring. I selected one of the Polkadoodles Easter Digital paper for the background and the sentiment tag. After mounting the completed image, I added the organza bow and the enamel dots to complete the design.

Naomi - Hi everyone! For this week's challenge, I made a Mother's Day card using the Digi Bunny Rabbit with Mum Greeting Card. This cute little bunny is coloured with alcohol markers and placed on pattern papers from the Gnome trick or treat papers collection. I Love these papers. It definitely can be used for more than trick-or-treat time of year. Thanks so much for reading, and I can't wait to see what you make for us!

Nunzia: When I think of Mother's Day I easily associate a card with flowers. So I colored the bunch of Flower Meadow where the matching cards are also included. To give it more interest, I cut and shimmed some strips from one of the patterned paper and alternated them with others. The sentiment is part of Mothers day messages and sentiments bundle.
RACHAEL - Today I'm sharing this card I made with this cutie. The image is called Bunny with greeting card and what I love about this is the fact there are various versions of Mom, Mum, or a blank card for you to type your own name. this means wherever you are from in the world, you can adapt to whoever you celebrate on Mothers day!


Wendy - Hi everyone! I'm still having so much fun playing with the Tons of Love and More bundle. These elephants are so sweet and adorable. For today's challenge, I used the colors to create a rainbow sunrise sky. I drew in a tree and a branch with leaves for the sweet elephant to relax under. I would love to see all of the wonderful spring cards that you create with these adorable elephants. Thank you for looking!

Janelle - Hello crafty friends! I looove this mama and child and had to use this to celebrate Mother’s Day. 💖🐘🧒🏻. For this card I used Family Love Elephant and sentiments Tons of Love.
Copics used:
  • Mama elephant C00, 0, 1, 3
  • Child elephant N0, 2, 4
  • Nails W00, 0, 2
  • Cheek R01, 11

Wow!! Lots of gorgeous inspiration for you this week to use - we hope you'll share what you make with your Polkadoodles products on our Social Media!

Judy: My DT project for this week's challenge is a rocker style card. I used Love All from the Love Always Printables. The image was colored with Prismacolor pencils and die cut. I printed the "You're my No. 1" sentiment from the Love Always Printable Sentiments Bundle. The patterned paper on my rocker card base is from Christmas Paper Patterns 1. I printed the "Happy Anniversary" sentiment from Love Birds Greetings Valentine and die cut into a tag. A flower and bow were added to embellish.

Renske - Hello everyone! We were asked to create a card with the theme "Shape Up" as a design team. To create the shape of the card, I used the science bottles from the Science/Math/Teacher/Professor/Geek/Student/Chemistry digital stamp bundle. The two bottles form the front and back of the card. I coloured this with my alcohol markers. I used the scientist's digital stamp on the inside of the card. This is the Science/Math/Teacher/Professor/Geek/Student/Chemistry digital stamp. To complete the design, I used two texts from two different sentiment sets. On the front, I have the text "Have a brilliant day".This is a part of the text from the Gnome Men greeting set. The text in the set is "Have a blooming brilliant day". I cut out the word Blooming. I placed this on the green liquid at the front. For the inside, I complete the text with the text oh oh oh, it's magic you know. This is from the Serenity Wishes sentiment set. I hope you like my creation. Happy Crafting.

NATALIA KUZAK - Hello everyone, this week I'm sharing a concertina tag using lots of inks and combination of stamps. I used this lovely January Knowledge is everything girl stamp with Stamp Soup and the Funky Flowers clear stamps too - hope you like it!

Sabina - Today I am sharing a mixed media tag using Rainbow Rebel stamp, coloured with Ohuhu markers. The sentiment is part of Winnie Daisy greetings, quotes and sentiments .

ENRICA - Hello everyone! Today I’d like to share with you my teapot using papers and digital stamp from the adorable Bella Bear Morning Coffee bundle, the little “Time for Tea” sticker on the tag is from the Work & Play 12 Design Sheet - Barista girl/coffee/cake/waitress. This teapot is actually a small box (inside there are 4 tea bags), it could be a nice idea for a little gift or a place card. Hope you like it! Xx

Irre - Hi everyone! Today I am sharing a playing card-card using one of my favourite collections - Winnie Wonderland. I love how all the texture and ink turned out on this card...

Deborah - Hello all! Deborah here and I am working on my Easter cards for my granddaughters. They love everything that's cute and pink 💕 and this cute Winnie Easter Bunny definitely hits the mark! For this postage edge, oval shaped card, I selected the un-colored digi stamp Winnie Easter Bunny. I feel in love with this cute little Winnie all dressed-up in her cute little onesie. I decided to color her with alcohol ink markers using a playful rainbow of pastels. This digi stamp is also available in a pre-colored version, if you prefer. I finished the card by adding some printed papers from the Just Lovely Honeypie Printable Paper Bundle, a bow, and some embellishments. Listed below are the Copic Alcohol Ink Marker colors that I used to color this digi stamp.

Tinne - Hi everyone! For this challenge I created a soccer card using the Soccer Football Gnome precoloured image. I glued 2 white rectangle stitched cardstock pieces on top of a slightly bigger white base card. I cut out 2 little tags. One out of navy cardstock, and one out of a paper from the Work & Play Paper Heaven 1 paper pack. I glued them on top of each other, showing just a litte bit of the navy tag. I cut a grass border out of green cardstock, and inked it with Lucky Clover and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink. I sprinkled it with water. Once drie, I sprinkled some Evergreen Bough and Ground Espresso Distress Oxide ink over it. I glued the grass border on the tag, and glued this on the card. I put foam tape behind my gnome image and a sentiment from the Winnie Daisy Greetings, Quotes and Sentiments pack, and also glued them into place. I made a bow out of twine, and glued it on the top of my tag. I hope you like it! Instagram page: Tinne Peeters (@robinette_crafts) • Instagram-foto's en -video's

Merja - This time I used Dog With Gifts digi image and coloured it with alcohol markers. I made some vellum flowers with Flowers Flourish die set, coloured them with alcohol markers and added little yellow buttons. The background paper is from Eden Collection Paper Heaven 5 set. I cut the center away with Posydoodles Rectangles die and added embossed vellum behind it before taping it to the card base. Text is stamped with Birthday Celebrations stamp set. Cute little card for a dog person 😊

Pam - I've selected the 'Just For You with Dogs' image for my card which has a vellum tag. After Copic coloring the image, I used Polkadoodles Heavenly Circles stencil with Distressed Oxides Prize Ribbon and Speckled Egg to make the fun background. I used the green background paper from Polkadoodles Soft & Scrumptions Craft Paper package and stamped and embossed the sentiment on vellum from LDRS Mini Winnie Boutique. But where's the other dog? .... He's hanging out inside the card at the bottom. 😄

Nunzia: for today's challenge I decided to colour this adorable Dog Sitting on gifts with crayons. I then created a frame using two sheets of vellum, one purple and the other white. I also used them for Lily bug-ladybird sentiment banners. The background paper is part of Rebel pretty printable paper bundle.

Wendy - Hi everyone! I love shaker cards! For this month's challenge, we were asked to make a card using vellum or acetate. What better use for acetate than an infinity shaker? I paired it with one of the images in the Lucy Monkman line - Just for You Girls with Dog. Thank you for looking!

Naomi - Hi everyone, thanks so much for stopping by this Polkadoodles challenge. This card was so fun to do. I used a Digi from the Lucy Monkman Collection Garden flowers. This pretty little digi was coloured using my alcohol markers and placed on a piece of vellum that I die cut. The black background was splattered with some gold to give it some sparkle. Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Janelle: Hello Crafty Friends! I am happy to be back with this inspirational card. For this card I used Christmas Fun Banner digi stamp, Pretty Winnie Daisy Paper and Winnie Daisy Sentiments
