Wk 5 Card making & craft challenge - Anything Goes creative challenge at Polkadoodles

  Time for a 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 & see what the team made for us...
They were asked to make something for Spring, using this gorgeous colour palette!

Judy: My "Spring is Here" project is a card created with one of the gnomes from Spring Gnomes Digital Stamps.
I used background papers from Toadally Cute 6 x 6 Paper Pack. The sentiment was stamped using ne of the stamps in the Grow on You 4 x 4" Clear Stamp Set. I colored the digi with Castle Arts Pasteltint Pencils and
fussy cut. The butterflies were fussy cut from one of the papers used.

Natalia - Spring is just around the corner, so I made a mini concertina album in very vivid spring colors. Each page is 10x10 cm. In the central card, I used a stamp from the January series - Knowledge is All. My background I created with Distress and watercolour paints. Around each page, I made doodles with stamps and a black pen.
I like it very much.

Sarah How fun are Magic Colour Change cards?! I used the beautiful Thinking of You Blossom Flower Stamp set, one of my absolute favs to create this, I love the reveal!!

ENRICA - Hello everyone! This is my project to celebrate the arrival of spring, a simple square card using the sweet 'Taking a Break Toadstool' and a cute sentiment from the 'Prickly Little Dude' - Love this color palette, it really puts me in a good mood!

Sabina - For this week's challenge I made my first shaker card. I cut two rectangles to make a window and glued the acetate to them. I gave the confetti in between and glued it all together with 3D foam. I shaded the rectangle with Distress Inks, added Winnie Daisy greetings, quotes and sentiments and glues it to acetate to make the background. I coloured Crocus, the Darling Buds digital stamp with alcohol markers, cut it out with scissors and glued on top.

Donna - For this weeks’ card I used the Spring Showers stamp set to repeat stamp a circle shape. I coloured the stamped images using watercolours, then spritzed them with water and allowed the colours to spread and blend. I added die-cut letters to spell out the word ‘SPRING’ and I mounted the final piece onto coordinating card.

Sonja - I used this gorgeous Winnie digistamp called Butterfly Tree Fairy - the precoloured version. I printed this rainbow paper and then placed my digi onto the same paper using my graphics program and printed it again. Then I cut her out on my cutting machine, so she is edged with the rainbow and I can line her up! I really like this technique a lot. Finally I added cut out the sentiment too and added it down the side. 

Renske - Hello everyone! What is your favourite season? My favourite season is spring. So I love making spring cards. I decided to use the cute digital stamp "Spring Gnome Lambs/Sheep. I colored the image with my alcohol markers. From the Spring gnomes set, I used two designer papers. The pink checkered paper for the background, and from the pink paper with white flowers I cut a flower. To give it something extra, I turned it into a shaker card. I used the sentiment from the set Spring gnomes fun puns, quotes and sentiments. Hope it gives you the spring feeling too. Happy crafting!

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




Today we are saying a big warm hello and welcome to 3 great new DT members WendyJulie and Michelle!
We hope you'll all follow their social media, we're thrilled they have joined us!

So let's get to today's inspiration & see what the team made for us...



Wendy L - Using Microsoft Word, I printed the Together Always - Love Always printable image at 75% transparency to give the look of no-line coloring. I added a circle to create a moon around the bunnies faces to highlight them and positioned a sentiment from the "Love Always printable Sentiments big bundle in the moon. I colored everything with Copic Markers. If you're on Insta I'd love to follow you so tag me and follow me on Instagram here!

Julie - Hi everyone, I'm sharing my DT project for the Valentine's Challenge. For this card I've used the cute Too Cute Kitty Love digital stamp. Part of this challenge is to also use paper weaving in some way. For this I've used the Love Always Printable Papers 1 bundle cut into 1/4 inch strips and woven into a pattern as shown on the finished card. For the sentiment I've used the "Be My Valentine" from the Love Always Printable Sentiments bundle. I’ve added some white gel pen, and some flat sequins to finish off the card. I hope that my card inspires you to join in the challenge this month. I can’t wait to see what you all create!


Michelle - Hello Friends! I am happy to be back and creating for you! In this 6x6 Valentine Card, I created a woven background using patterned papers from the collection Love and Romance paperbundle. I then colored and added my Sweet Heart Balloons Honeypie image and layered her on the frame from the Love and Romance frames bundle. Lastly, I used the sentiment from Winnie Celebrations sentiments! I hope you enjoy! Michelle, The Craft Market SC

Ariadna - Hello crafty friends!! I'm happy to show you my new card for the lovely Polkadoodles!. This card is full of love with the beautiful "Lily bug big heart" digital stamp. For coloring I used my favorite color pencils, and for the background a little bit of ink with and I added some texture to the cardstock with some waving. Hope you like it!


Rachael - Have you seen this super cute owl from our latest Wings of Love release? Although I made him into a love card, he is perfect for any occasion. I added a bit of simple paper weaving using leftover off cuts of card - this is a great way to use up scraps!

Pam - Valentine cards are such fun and today's challenge added a weave. I've used True Love with the Heart Flourish Die in the background. My 'paper ribbon weaving' is down the left side using a solid and a sheet from the Fresh Twist paper pack. After Copic coloring the image and assembling the card front, I cut apart one of the sentiments from the Love Always Sentiment set and added the pieces in the weaving. Lastly I added the coordinating red organza bow. Happy Valentine Wishes to you!

Merja - On this cute little valentine's day tag I used Rose Bunny image and coloured it with alcohol markers. The background I did with paper weaving technique - I used papers from Toadally Cute paper pack and after weaving I cut it with Posydoodles Circles die. The text is stamped with Cutie Pie stamps.

Nunzia: for my love card I have coloured this cute love-you-bunches bunny and glued it on a heart made of woven strips of patterned papers taken from Love Always paper bundle. The sentiments are part of Lily bug love quotes bundle.

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 - make sure you share into our Facebook group here, we'd love to see you there!....share HERE!

Wk 3 Card making & craft challenge - Anything Goes creative challenge at Polkadoodles

 Time for a new card making & crafting challenge!...


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




Today we are saying a big warm hello and welcome to 2 wonderful new DT members
Sonja & Renske!  We hope you'll all follow their social media, we're thrilled they have joined us!

So let's get to today's inspiration & see what the team made for us...



Sonja - Hello! For quick Pancakes I found an easy recipe where you just need to add water so I decided to make this as a gift idea. I filled up a bottle with dry mixture and on the outside I decorated with Pancake Heaven - PRECOLOURED Miss Sugarpops the label is cut out with Posydoodles Basics - Rectangles dies with printed sentiment from Pancake Sentiments - Miss Sugarpops. The dots on the label on top are made with Polka Dot Mesh Craft Stencil - enjoy your Pancake craftings!
Renske - Hello everyone! My first DT project and I am really excited. For this project I made a flip flap card. I used the image Pancake Oopsy and a sentiment from the Pancake Sentiments set. I thought, "Flip!"it's your birthday!" was perfect for making a flip flap card. I put the word flip on the front of the card and you can see the rest of the sentiment when you flip the card. I colored the image using alcohol markers with colors that match the digital paper I used from the Paper Heaven 1 Lil Miss Sugerpops Kit 1 set. Happy Crafting!


Natalia - For today's challenge, I've prepared a simple art journal page with the collection Funky Flowers Stamps. The best one for me! As a background, I created pictures of lemons from mentioned stamps and stencils and colored them with Distress Ink and watercolor paint. I add also a sentence from Pancake Sentiments - Miss Sugarpops digi stamp. My work is full of sweet colors on the one side and black and white on the other side. Hope you like it.
Sarah - Can't find the exact image that you need? Why not mix it up a bit? I used the Baketime digi image for this card, but as I needed a pancake theme, I cut the cupcakes out and drew my own pancakes!! It's so much fun to tweak your images so that they're just right for what you need!

Enrica - Hello everyone! For my Pancake Day card I used the sweet 'Pancake heaven' digital stamp and one of the 'Pancake Sentiments' from the Miss Sugarpops collection And three different papers from Winnie Sunshine Delights 6"x 6" Paper Pack 2 and the Lily Bug Love Paper Heaven 2 bundle kit. I Colored with Copic and Distress Ink to soften the edges. Crafty hugs! xx
Sabina - This week I made a pancake themed card, starring Miss Sugarpops. She is coloured with alcohol markers. The sentiment is from Pancake heaven sentiments.
Donna - For this weeks’ card I printed 2 copies of thePancake Oopsy digital stamp, and an extra copy combined with a sentiment from the Pancake Heaven Sentiments. I used watercolour pencils to colour the images and then cut into 2 of them to create 3d layers for the third. I mounted the final piece onto coordinating card and added some gems for extra interest.

We are LOVING all this inspiration this week - lots of variations on the pancake theme which is such a fun idea! Big thanks to the team!
