RACHAEL - I've been working with the gorgeous new Botanical Bliss collection and this card was very simple to make but I think very effective, I love using inks and vellum together. The stamp from the collection is called Daisy Dragonfly and also has co-ordinating outline dies and layering stencils too!

Julie Nagle - This card radiates a playful vibe with a fun "I’m stuck on you" sentiment that perfectly captures the whimsical charm of this adorable design. The cute Desert Cactus image is colored with Copic Markers while happily showing off it’s smile against this flirtatious digital paper - Pretty Winnie Daisy Papers. Please follow My Instagram, My Facebook

Nunzia - I used this PRETTY FLOWER WREATH printable stamp which is from this amazing bundle - such great value and very versatile!

Wendy - Hi everyone! We're playing with flowers for this week's challenge and I just love this one! It's from the Watercolor Flower Stem Digi and it comes with this beautiful flower, sentiment and some gorgeous paper. Thank you for looking!

Merja - I used the leafy stencil and stamps from the Blooming Blossoms collection...

JANELLE - Hello crafty friends! Here is a lovely versatile flower card using Perfect Peony For more inspiration check out my IG page @janelle.paper.sparkles
Copic colours: Flowers: RV000, RV91, 93, 95/ Y15,17. • Leaves: G40, 43, 46

Judy:  I chose to do a twisted easel card. My focal for the front of the card is one of the pre-colored images from the Pretty Flower Wreath Digi Deal. Also used 2 of the patterned papers and a sentiment from this set on the inside of the card. I fussy cut the wreath and popped onto a white circle die cut. I stamped a border on the front.

Renske - Hello everyone! We are already approaching Father's Day, so I created a fun card in a box with a barbecue theme. I used a digital stamp called "BBQ Chef Cook Gnome for Men" and coloured it with alcohol markers before cutting it out. I covered the card in the box with patterned paper from the "Gnome Men BBQ" set and also die-cut flags from another patterned paper from the same set. To create a fun scene, I added grass strips, trees, and a sky in the background. The sentiment "Best Dad Ever" from the "Gnome Men Greetings" set was placed on the front of the card in blue letters. I hope this inspires you. Happy crafting!

ENRICA - Hi everyone! This week the DT was asked to share a project to celebrate Father’s Day and for my card I decided for the super cute Superhero - Little Dudes digi stamp, the themed paper and the themed sentiment I chose are included in the set. I colored this sweet guy with Copic and used Distress Ink to create the rays in the background. Hope you like it!
Have a wonderful week, Big hugs, Enrica

Irre - I used this cute Ula digistamp, I love how moody she is! I created this tag with lots of texture.

Judy: This week's DT project is a Father's Day card created with the Greatest Guy Men's Themed 4 x 4" Stamp Set. I went really simple with this card, just stamping some of the words and the sentiment with different colors of ink. Thin strips of blue cardstock to match my card base were added. The patterned paper on the left side is from Rainbow Paper Digital Download Bundle.

Irre - Hello everyone.Today, I’m here with a new project for Polkadooodles. I created a canvas with the digital stamp Ula sparkle. I started by coloring the stamp with copics. Then, I adhered the paper with the stamp to a canvas. I painted the paper with clear gesso, so the stamp wouldn’t be destroyed. The edges of the paper I ripped and crumbled. Then, I added art stoned in different sizes to the edges of the canvas. Next, I added some paint with ink sprays and also added some splattering. Finally, I added a title from the stamp set that I attached with some black sewing thread. Have a crafty day! Instagram: @scrapbyirre

Merja - This time I made this fun dolphin card. I used the Dolphins image, coloured the dolphins with alcohol markers and then cut them. For the card base I used papers from Winnie Starfish/Sandcastles 7, 4 and 5 digi paper packs. I die cut two holes of different sizes to the papers and layered them with foam tape to create more dimension. Next I added the sentiment from Winnie Mermazing Mermaid Quotes set and taped the dolphins on the scene with foam tape. Lastly I added a few sequins here and there.

Nunzia: I love dolphins and this cute group from the gorgeous Coral Mermaid collection Underwater is perfect for my idea of a family card. I colored the scene with alchool markers and drowned some water bubbles to fill the background. The sentiments come from Love Birds Greetings Valentine while the patterned is a sheet included in Noodle panda-set-3.
