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

Merja - I created this simple card using Superhero digi stamp and paper from the same pack. I coloured the dude with alcohol markers and added some glossy accents over the shield to get some 3D effect and make it shine. I really love this little dude 💙

Nelly  My card this week is male themed and you can find the image by clicking the link here polkadoodles.co.uk/phone-texter-guy-digital-stamp-download/ the papers and sentiments were taken from the polkadoodles.co.uk/work-play-7-digital-download-paper-craft-collection I decorated the corners using Brads.

 Pam -Today I've used Knight Dragon from the Little Dudes Collection and made a mini slimline Masculine Birthday card. With his pet dragon, he's certainly only a fierce knight in his dreams! I've Copic colored him and stenciled dreamy castles in the clouds for him to conquer. I used a cloud die for the sentiment also and added the knight beside it, over the brick background. I made the base to fit the card - 4 1/4" x 6 1/2". Don't be afraid to make odd sized cards.  It's okay! You can do it!  

Nunzia: usually making a card for a guy is a real challenge, but with this cute Scruff Dog with heart Cookies digi, everything becomes so easy. I colored with alchool markers, fussy cut and glued it with double foam tape on a base made up of two digi patterned papers from Just lovely honeypie paper bundleThe sentiment is incluted in Football little dude digi stamp.

Kim Simpson I don’t know about you, but I never seem to have birthday cards on hand that are suitable for boys, so I was excited to create this card with the adorable Little Dude – Dragon Onesie digital stamp and papers!   I colored this sweet boy with my Copics and layered up the digital papers and sentiment that come as a bonus with the digital stamp!  (Can’t beat that!) 

Caroline It is so nice to do a boy theme card for a change. Girly or feminine cards are what I automatically go for so to be given the challenge of Boys or Men made me go for something different. Pip, Onesie (stamp or a digistamp) is such a cute image for a small boys card. I stamped and heat embossed and coloured using Distress Oxides. I then stamped and heat embossed the toy and the Onesie eyes, horns and hair which I then fussy cut to add on with 3d pads.Layered and added twine and beads. I finally added the sentiment from the  Special Celebrations stamp set. Happy Birthday to one small boy!

Ladies, thankyou so much for your great ideas & inspiration!

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


 Judy: My DT project this week is a card created with one of the digis from the Springtime Smiles Collection , Watering Can with Flowers Spring Garden. I colored with Prismacolor Pencils and fussy cut. It was popped with foam tape onto a layered die cut circle frame. The patterned paper was printed from Pretty Spring PapersThe sentiment was printed an die cut as a tag. I added ribbon, a bow and pearls for embellishment.

Natalia...The challenge for us as a DT is colour palette. Very simple and sweet - yellow, pink, and blue.My art journal page is based on various stamps available on Polkadoodle's website. The main role is playing a very cute dragonfly from Time to Bloom Stamps. I attached additional dragonfly wings to make a 3D effect. The background I created with watercolour paints, Distress, and StazOn inks. Wish you a creative weekend!

Enrica...Hello everyone!  This week the DT was asked to make a project using a given colors palette. For my card I used the sweet 'Butterfly Tree Fairy' from the newest Winnie Daisy Fairy collection https://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/butterfly-tree-fairy-winnie-daisy-fairy-cute-girl-printable-clipart-digital-stamp-digistamp-for-cards-cardmaking-crafting-and-stickers/
colored with Copic  R00-R20 Y00-YR31 B00-B12, stenciled background with Cream Paste and added die-cutted butterflies. Hope you like it! xx

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

 Merja - On my card I used beautiful image from Blooms 5 Tulip Flower bundle and coloured the flowers with alcohol markers. Then I cut them and taped on the slimline card base with foam tape. Text is from Let's Hang Out sentiments bundle.

Nunzia: Spring gives us a great variety of flowers but sunflowers are one of my favourites. For this I colored one of the Blooms 3 flower bundle bouquets with different shades of orange, combining it with a patterned paper included in the same set. The sentiment comes from Quotes Winnie special moments craft digi.

Pam - For my project card I selected Polkadoodles Blooms 1 Flower Bundle and made this 5 1/2"square greeting cardFor something a little different, I added a good bit of my book binding glue to the center of each flower, then added yellow seed beads. I used two of the Polkadoodles Elegant Flourish Dies, one from each side to cover the edges of the tag to complete the card design.
CarolineI used Flower Power 1 (PD7490) and Wonderful World (PD8219) stamps. I Stamped and heat embossed and then coloured with Distress Inks before fussy cutting out. I then Added gems into the centre of the flowers and then layered onto paper from the Blushing Blooms 6x6 paper pad. I Lifted the flowers using foam pads. Spring Flowers really do make it a wonderful world!!
Kim SimpsonThis week, the Design Team is working with spring flowers, and I decided to try something new, and dabble in creating an Art Journal Page.  I thought that the Daisy Days Digital Collection would be perfect for this.  I arranged my pages using one of the digital papers as a base, adding my text, and a few of the elements that I didn’t think that I would be able to cut out well.  I fussy cut the flowers and leaves and arranged and adhered to the pages.  This was such a fun project, and I can’t wait to do some more journaling. Have a great week. 

Ladies, thankyou so much for your great ideas & inspiration!
