Now onto the fabulous inspiration from the Design Team.

Ruth:  I've used the beautiful Bubbleicious Die - the initial die cut is from a paper from Belle Papillon Collection and then inlaid it with another die cut, adding half pearls to the 'bubbles'.  The oval die was used to add to the centre.  Butterfly is also from the Belle Papillon Collection.


Jacki - For my card I have used the ubber cute new release Helga and I have a limited number of PD dies (2) which I had at the launch so I had an idea of what to do. Then having Helga made that job a little easier. I used one of the papers from the Helga collection and added a coloured version (flower girl) I added a sentiment which is on the collection and then went to work on my tree.


Helen - I've got a bit bonkers with the die cuts for my inspiration project, using some older favourites and the new toadstool border also around three of the edges, just thought they made great flourishes and prettiness. I've used two of the papers from the new Bella Fleur paper pad, two of the flowers from the Bella Fleur stamp set stamped and white embossed in the Bubbleicious frame and Miss Charlotte from the Rose Budd CD.


Alysha - Hi there and a Happy New Year to all our Polkadoodlers! This week as always its anything goes here at Polkadoodles Challenge Blog but the DT have used a die cut this week.  I have used the gorgeous floral die cut Doublet Die from Polkadoodles, I've also added the stamp on the top and coloured it with Spectrum Noir Markers I've used Winnie Sprinkles Just for You Digi Image also coloured with Spectrum Noir Markers.


Pauline - I have used papers from the Bella Fleur Paper Pad along with the largest of the Elegant Nest Dies and the Flower Flourish Die to create my shabby chick card.  The sentiment stamp is from the Belle Papillon A5 large Clear Stamp Set and I created the flowers using the Daisydays Stamp Set.


Karon - I couldn't resist using the wonderful Belle Papillon Download Bundle for my card this week. I love all the different elements in this beautiful collection.  I also used the wonderful Super Sprigs Die for the leaves behind my flowers. All the papers, flowers, and other elements are from this fabulous collection.


Lisa - I have used papers from the Belle Papillon Paper Pad, Elegant Nest DiesBirdcage and Bird Doublet Dies and Belle Papillon A5 Clear Stamp Set. Along with some lace, ribbon, and Frantage embossing powder to create a Shabby Chic themed card.


Carol - I have used a pre coloured image from Octavia Frosted Winter collection and a sentiment from Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Springtime collection which I printed out and cut out with Ribbon/Gift frame die. I then layered it onto a background paper from Octavia Frosted Winter  and finished my card with a bow.


Elena - I used digi from WINNIE FRUIT PUNCH BIG BUNDLE colored with pastel. With Silhouette Studio, I used a digi file turning it into a cutting files.


Such fabulous creations.

Tina - This time I designed an elves house. I used the Belle Papillon Kahuna Bundle and for the shield on the roof the middle size of the oft the Die Cut Set Elegant NestThe house is made of a chips roll and for the roof I did Cardstock curled up and covered with many small pieces of paper.
A corner of the squares was rounded and wiped with stamp ink. A few half beads, a miniature frame, some glitter and real moss make the house to a dreamy shelter for small elves. 

Anjie - For this card I have used the paper pad from the Bella Papillon crafting kit. You can also buy the paper on it's own HERE. I have then stamped the flower from the Bella Fleur craft kit. You can also buy the stamp set on it's own HERE. I have then cut out a frame using the Elegant Nest set of 3 dies. I used the same die to cut out the flower and trimmed it down to size. I then added a bow and some flourish die cuts behind it.

Michelle - For this card I have used Lavender Tea Collection this collection is beautiful such gorgeous colours I have also used Polkadoodles Dies Ribbon Gift Frames and Corners these dies are just beautiful to use.
Scatty Jan use a die cut , so easy with the new range of Polkadoodles dies that are now available - The die I used is a doublet die , absolutely adoring these dies with matching stamps. The papers used are from the new collection and the mannequin is from the CD - Find all the goodies here.
Claire C with so many gorgeous new dies available from Polkadoodles choosing my dies was the real challenge here lol.  I've used papers, stamps and dies from the Belle Papillon Papercrafting Kit and added some flowers from the Bella Fleur Paper craft Kit to make this shabby chic card.

Bev here, I decided to make a birthday card for my Step Dad using the adorable Winston Download Collection and for the dies I used both the Super Sprigs and Ribbon/Gift Frames & Corners.

Lou: I've used the wonderful Belle Papillon and Bella Fleur stamp, paper and dies collections to create my card. Images coloured with pan pastels with a light glitter finish.
Gail - I've used the delicious Belle Papillon printable collection, available on CD-ROM or as a download, along with the Elegant Nest die and co-ordinating Belle Papillon stamp set and dies, Butterfly die and Elegant Flourish die.

Now onto the fabulous inspiration from the Design Team...
Tina: Today I designed for you a door hanger. Everyone likes to be undisturbed in the bathroom ...
Especially when one is looking for his teeth. I used the Image: "Where´s my Teeth?" 
The background paper comes from the super cute, new set: "Belle Papillon Big Kahuna"
Included in this is not only the beautiful paper, but also embellishments, butterflies, rosettes, borders, flowers, sentiments and so much more. Just beautiful!
The door hanger is made of kraft paper, the design paper is printed on linen paper and around the hole above I added the flowers. The beautiful lady was colored with Polychromos.


I hope she could find her teeth now....


Tracy - Today I have used something new to me.... I bought this neat little bundle set Picknix 1 In the garden. It has a great bunting, butterflies, houses and a cool little fence. Loved playing and cutting out this collection. Great card for someone who has just moved house!


Bev here and I'm thinking New Beginnings. I coloured up Winter Time from Octavia Frosted Winter  and coloured her up with my pencils.


Anjie - So I used some of the fab new products that I have from Polkadoodles. For starters I used the paper pad and foliage dies from the Belle Papillon collection. I distressed the edges of the paper and then added some copper gilding polish. I also added some of the polish to all the die cuts. I stamped the sentiment and cut it out using the middle die in the Elegant Nesting set of 3 dies. I finally added some flowers from my stash.


Michelle - I have used Rose Budd Bundle 1 for this creation I have not used this collection before but I love it so I thought I would try one of the cottages in the bundle everything on my cottage comes in the Rose Budd Bundle 1 

Scatty Jan - For this weeks project I have used some lush, lush, lush new products from Polkadoodles to make a mini dress album - take a look at all the wonderful goodies here

Claire C -  I love all Nikky's gorgeous collections but I nearly always colour an image for my cards so my something new is using elements from the fabulous new collection Belle Papillon to make this card. It was so quick and easy as I resized one of the pretty vintage tags, cut out some bunting and embellies and added a little bling, ribbon and a paper rose


Gail - For this weeks challenge, I've used the totally scrummy, delicious paper craft kit Belle Papillon, it has everything in it stamps, paper pad and co-ordinating dies and all for a great price. Just love, love this new release from Polkadoodles.


Lou: I have used the wonderful new stamps, dies and matching papers from the Belle Papillion and Bella Fleur collections to create a birthday card and notebook for a work colleagues up and coming birthday. Lots of embossing and inking fun ...
