So let's get to today's inspiration...this week they've all used an Ocean theme!

Ruth:  I've used Winne Mermaid Mermazing bundle and printed the image directly onto the backing paper so the card is very flat as its going to be going through the post!  Sentiment is from the bundle too and I've used Promarkers to colour and some liquid pearls for highlights here and there.

Pam ~ We're off exploring the oceans, beaches and mermaids this week with more beautiful Polkadoodles images to share with you!  For my project today, I've selected Meribelle Mermaid Seahorse, and coloured her and her Seahorse in bright Copic colors in this underwater scene with lots of multicoloured bubbles!

Nelly for my card this week i used Collecting sea shells image that you can find here polkadoodles.co.uk/winnie-mermaid-mermazing-precoloured-collecting-shells-digital-stamp-download/i used a border punch to create the decorative edges 

Merja - This time I used Winnie Mermaid Mermazing - Anchors Away and coloured her with alcohol markers. The background papers are from Winnie Starfish/Sandcastles papers 4 and 5 bundles and text is from Winnie Mermazing Mermaid Quotes bundle. Then I just added some ribbon and a few buttons.

Nunzia: Today the main characters of my card is Meribelle Mermaid. She's floating with her dolphins to wish an happy day thanks to the sentiment from Quotes Winnie special moments.
The whole is mounted on a base made up of layers of Winnie Sunshine delights and Just-lovely honeypie bundle papers.

Ariadna - Hello again! I'm sharing this card I created using Rocco Dinghy digi from the Winnie Starfish/Sandcastles collection - it's so cute!

RachaelOur Ocean theme is not complete without our Mermazing Winnie.  This one is called Octopus kisses   and has matching backing papers too (.  I also used the land and sea stencil in the background and a sentiment from the Winnie Celebrations set 1.
Kim Simpson - This week, the Design Team was challenged to create an ocean-themed card.  I decided to try something new and make a round card using the beautiful Meribelle Mermaid Squishy Tail digital stamp.  This stamp was incredibly fun to work with, because the background was pre-colored and the main image was black and white.  I colored her using my Copics, and then added some glitter to her tail and the bubbles.   This card was super fun to create!  I hope you love her as much as I do! 
GabyI made this slimline card with an adorable digital stamp: Cat Naps-Honeypie. Because our pets can be our best friends too! I also used Winnie Fruit Punch Paper Heaven 1 for my base card and sentiment. 

AMAZING projects this week! Huge thanks to the whole team!

So let's get to today's inspiration...   

This week we are delighted to introduce 3 new Design Team members - we look forward to showing you all their amazing work!  The whole team would love you to follow them on social media so they can follow you back too! Huge welcome to the talented DonnaJo and Sarah!

 Judy:  The DT was asked to create with acetate or vellum this week. I chose to go with acetate and made a shaker card. The digi I used is Cute Chick with UmbrellaI colored with Prismacolor Pencils and fussy cut. The background paper is from Pretty Spring Printable PapersMy shaker element is clear all the way through the card front to allow the sentiment inside to show. The sentiment was stamped from Hello Sunshine 4x4" Clear Stamp Set.

Jo Hello Darlings, Today I have created a card for the fun 'Use Acetate or Vellum' Challenge and I am now inspired to make more use of them in my future card making! I wanted to create a 'fairy vibe' type card so I used colours that were soft. The patterned paper is taken from the 'Totally Cute' paper pack. I created a square edge border and blended Distress Oxide 'Shaded Lilac' and 'Spun Sugar', then attached some white vellum to the back and placed my shaker boarded over the base and sequins.  To suit the Fairy Vibe I was aiming for, what better image than a Winnie could I choose?! This beautiful 'Butterfly Tree' digital stamp image may be one of my favourites. To go with the image I paired a sentiment taken from the 'Spring Wishes' stamp set and heat embossed it in Gold over some Lilac cardstock. To finish off the card I added some sequins which feature in the shaker element on the front for some additional shine. Love, Jo
SarahI created a shaker card for this project, and filled it with sequins to complement the bubbles in the gorgeous Winnie-Celebrations image which I coloured with Copics. I also used the Basics Circles dies and this Sentiment stamp.
EnricaFor this week's challenge the DT was asked to use acetate or vellum, great opportunity to try to use them not only for shaker! For my summer slimline card I combined several digital stamps: For the front the super cute Ice Cream Beach Gnome For Men And on the inside Winnie Starfish/Sandcastles - Ice Cream/Food/Beach Kiosk/Shop/ and Horace & Boo Slurpy Ice Cream - Horace & Boo download printable stamp. Hope you like this fun project,  happy crafty summer everyone!  
DonnaFor this week’s challenge I used Ruby Party Girl Digi stamp. I gave her a layered skirt by tracing the printed image with a white gel pen onto vellum. I also used backing paper from Winnie Starfish/Sandcastles Papers 3 Download and a sentiment from Helga Hippo Sentiments Download BundleVisit my blog for a step by step https://donnaparrottstudios.wordpress.com/
AMAZING projects this week! Huge thanks to the whole team!

So let's get to today's inspiration...   

This week we are delighted to introduce 3 new Design Team members - we look forward to showing you all their amazing work!  The whole team would love you to follow them on social media so they can follow you back too! Huge welcome to the talented AriadnaRachael and Gaby...

Ariadna - Hello crafters!! I`m so excited to show you my first project as a DT member of @polkadoodles.   I made a slim card using one of its beautiful digital stamps, the Hooray-Sparkle Unicorn. I fell in love with this unicorn!. I used my favorite colour pencils to paint it and some inks for the background and a little twist of my personal touch drawing the sun, the clouds and the grass.  Hope you like it!

Gaby -For this round card I used Angel Cloud Stamp - Lil Miss Sugarpops 2 Digital Stamp. This little girl is so adorable!! I colored it with prismacolor pencils. I used a round die for my base card and stars and cloud dies as decoration. Also used a die from my stash with the word "HELLO" as a sentiment.  
RachaelI made this cutie using dino mite little dudes download.  Dino Mite Little Dude - Little Dudes digi stamp printable download - Polkadoodles Ltd - You get the papers to match this gorgeous digi in this bundle  I used a round die to cut a card base the using the papers and the image, along with some glue and foam pads I assembled this.  Perfect for any little boy's birthday! 
  Pam ~ Our Design Team focus today is on cards that are not squares or rectangles ~ so I've selected an oval for mine with an open weave frame.  I'm using Polkadoodles Bluebell from The Darling Buds Collection and have coloured her with my Copic markers in shades of Aqua blues.  After the card was assembled I added clear Wink of Stella over all the flowers and her outfit to give each piece that extra sparkle ~ making her as Pretty as a Picture! 
Nunzia: Today, instead of a square shape I opted for an oval card. I decided to use this adorable Too cute-mouse love that I colored with alcohol markers. To decorate the base I chose a paper from Winnie sunshine delights 6x6  digi paper pack and finally I added one of Quotes Winnie special moments as a sentiment.

Merja - This time I threw myself on a little princess mode 😃  I used Ula Be a Princess stamp and coloured this glorious princess with alcohol markers. I decided to do a little different background, so I designed a crown. The background paper is from Helga Hippo Paper Heaven 3 bundle, I drew a few lines with a glitter pen (doesn't show very well in the pic) and added some half pearls and diamonds. And Ula, of course, is the center of everything 😊

Nelly The team challenge was to crate "not a square or rectangle card, so out came my circle dies to create a round card which i then used distress inks on the embossed outer edge.  the image is called polkadoodles.co.uk/earlie-hedgehog-dandelion-fuzzypuffs-digi-stamp-printable-download/ and I coloured it up using alcohol markers.
KIM SIMPSONHi friends!  This week, since our theme is "not square or rectangle," I made this fun Graduation Cap Easel Card, starring the adorable Twiggy & Toots Graduation.  I have a few graduates that I am celebrating this month, so I thought it would be fun to do something really different for them.

AMAZING projects this week! Huge thanks to the whole team and a big welcome to Ariadna, Rachael and Gaby!
