Wk 48 Card making & craft challenge - Anything Goes at Polkadoodles

It's time for a brand new card making & crafting challenge!...




THE WINNERS OF OUR LAST CHALLENGE ARE AT THE END OF THIS POST
----------------------


     
   

So let's get to today's inspiration... this week the team were asked to create something they could send as a gift - let's see what they made for us, they're amazing! 

 Judy: I've created a quick and easy gift card holder for this week's DT project. Paper, embellies, frame and word art from the Christmas Joy Digiscrap Download Bundle were used. This bundle has everything you need for holiday crafting.


NataliaToday we inspire you to make Christmas gifts. I made a Christmas wooden box. I was encouraged by the Lets Go Gnome stamp. I thought it would look great on the box. I painted it half and half with acrylic paints and Distress. To decorate the sides of the box, I used a stencil of Polka Dot Mesh and blue Distress Oxide. It's ideal for small bits of chocolates and cookies or as house decoration. I'm waiting to see your Christmas gifts.

ENRICA - Hello everyone! For my gift this week I made a simple Explosion Box using the cute Baked With Love - Stocking Filler digital craft download colored with Copic, and two papers from Baked With Love - Paper Heaven 1 digital craft paper download.  I completed my project with another small box inside and decorated with elements from the Baked With Love - Embellies digital craft paper download.  Crafty hugs! xx

SabinaFor today's challenge, I made a very simple greeting card with a pocket in which you can put e.g. tea bags. I used the Snowmen Friends stamp, colored it with alcohol markers and added the sentiment from the Winnie Daisy greetings, quotes and sentiments set.
Donna ParrottFor this weeks project I created a little bag by first embroidering over a stamped image from the Night Sky set onto fabric. Once I’d finished stitching, I created a simple zip up bag and matching tassel.

WOW!! Incredible projects, thanks so much to the whole team, we hope you are feeling inspired!

It's time for a brand new card making & crafting challenge!...

So let's get to today's inspiration... this week the team were asked to create something using digital papers - let's see what they made for us! 

Rachael - I made this little tag/recipe book using papers from the Gingerbread Holly release which I love...this is a gift for someone this Christmas so I can't say too much more!

Pam Our Design Team challenge this week was to create our own wrapping paper using Polkadoodles products.  I selected the Fancy Intricate Bauble die as my design base.  After coloring one image with Copic RV19 and B06, I scanned the image and used Photoshop to duplicate my pattern for the paper. As you can see, I did two designs. After printing, I used distressed oxides with the  Polkadoodles Confetti Layering Stencil on the top package and the Timeless Rose, Delicious Swirls Stencil on the bottom package. Lastly, I added coordinating gold and blue organza bows to the packages and they are ready to go! 

Merja - I made chocolate gift box using this beautiful paper from Winnie Winterland Paper Heaven 6 pack. I think it doesn't need much more so I just stamped a text with Gnome Hand Delivered stamp set, added a big golden bow and some satin ribbon to the sides.

Nunzia: today I propose a very cute packaging. I used some elements from Blooms butterfly bundle: the butterflies that I printed in different sizes, the sentiment on the scalloped circle and two sheets of patterned. I added another one included in Winnie sunshine delights. From these sheets I cut some strips to make the paper bow.

Kim SimpsonThis week, the Design Team was challenged to get creative with wrapping.  I decided to create a gift box with a belly band using some of the digital papers from the Elvis Wesley Moose Collection.  I wanted to make this package extra special, so I colored up the sweet Evie with Poinsettia digital stamp, also from the Elvis Wesley Moose collection, with Copic markers, created a rosette from cardstock that I stenciled, and turned it into an ornament that can be removed from the package and hung on the tree. 


NataliaFor today's inspiration, I made two paper rosettes based on new digi papers - Gingerbread Holly Papers 2. I also cut pictures of gingerbread men from these papers and used the sentiments from the set - Gingerbread Holly printable Greeting/Sentiments. My rosettes are perfect for decorating a Christmas tree or gingerbread boxes.
