So let's get to today's inspiration... this week the team were asked to create something with an Autumn/Fall theme - let's see what they made for us!...


Merja - I wanted to make a simple and cute Halloween card. Firstly I made the background - I stamped some ghosts from Scary Boo stamp set using embossing ink and bats from Grab Your Broomstick stamp set with black ink. Then I stamped more ghosts to white card board, cut them with Scary Boo Matchables die set and taped them to the background with foam tape. Lastly I stamped and heat embossed the trick or treat text (from Scary Boo stamp set) and taped it to the background.

Pam ~ Today I'm sharing Pandora the Halloween Witch who's looking for the way to the Halloween Candy through the foggy Dusty Concord Distressed Oxides. The full moon made with Squeezed Lemonade oxides is leading the way to the Haunted House.  I've colored Pandora with Copic markers and added a black liner to the completed before the wide eyed spider border paper from the Autumn Paper Heaven 2 paper pack. These layers were then mounted on the 6" x 7" black card base to complete this card design.

Nunzia: for my today card I invented a new fairy tale character. I composed it with Willa Witch  giving her a pair of wings hiding behind her a butterfly from Blooms butterfly bundle. The background is made swiping distress oxides on a white paper and the sentiment comes from Quotes-winnie-special-moments...

Rachael I just love these cute monsters!  this little guy is called little monsters - fuzzpea and he is just adorable!  He was crying out to be coloured in Green but I thought that a bit too obvious, so went for zingy red instead so he really pops off the page.  I know a few little monsters who would love this card!

Kim SimpsonHey Pumpkin!  I love making Halloween cards, so this week’s challenge is right up my alley!  I love the Boo Cute collection, so I decided to create a card using the adorable Pumpkin Boo Girl Pre-colored digital stamp.  I paired her with lots of layers using some of the coordinating digital papers from the collection and the result is this adorable card that is ready to send!   

GabyI used this cute little monster for my first Halloween card! You can find this adorable digital stamp as Monster Boo Halloween in the store. For background I used distress ink and colored the stamp with pencils. 

Gabrielle  The ‘Foraging Mushrooms’ digi stamp is perfect for home d├ęcor and I chose to make a mixed media plaque to hang in a pantry, shed or kitchen.  I painted the plaque with a light layer of white gesso & chalk acrylic.  I then used the Polkadoodles ‘Tweet Branches’ stencil with ‘Crushed Olive’ Distress Ink.  I added a green embossing powder to the edges and to create the illusion of grass. I coloured the main image using Promarkers and used a sentiment and the pre-coloured mushrooms  from the ‘Magic Garden Soup’ collection along with the bees from the ‘Winnie Sunshine Delights’ embellishments collection as they all work so well together.  

Ariadna - I used these great digital stamps for my card - I love to make them look mixed media by sketching over the lines and adding my own doodles. Hope you like it! I used Frankenstion and the elements from 

Great Autumn projects to help inspire you this week! Big thanks to the team!

So let's get to today's inspiration... this week the team were asked to create something with a Back To School theme - let's see what they made for us!...

 JudyI used An Apple a Day Lil Miss Sugar Pops which I colored with Prismacolor Pencils.  She was fussy cut and popped with foam tape onto a die cut circle frame. Two of the papers used on the background are from Gnome Men Dad/Father Printable Paper PatternsThe star paper is from Winnie Celebrations 1 PapersThe sentiment is computer generated. I added 2 apple stickers and enamel dots from my stash.

JO LAVERTY - I love this Lil Miss Sugarpops image with her backpack so I just had to use her on this card for the school theme! 
SarahFor this challenge I used the lollipop lady and spotty paper from the Work and Play Collection 12 (the digi kit for this is AMAZING value!!). I resized them in my Silhouette Studio software and then used my Silhouette to cut them out! For the lollipop lady I used the print and cut feature to get three images, then cut and layered them to get a 3d decoupaged image. 
ENRICA - Schools here in Italy will start in a month ... there is still time to enjoy the holidays! 
This handmade notebook is my project for this week challenge, to embellish the cover I used the sweet 'Student/School Little Dude' digistamp colored with Copic. I added some die-cut pieces from my stash to complete it - Happy crafting everyone! xx 
Donna PHi Guys, for this weeks Back to School theme I’ve used the Science Teacher/Student digi stamp which I coloured using alcohol markers. For the background I used a couple of sheets from Work and Play 12 Paper Heaven 8 plus a sheet of vintage book paper, which I covered with ink splats to give it a ‘homework’ feel. All the embellishments came from Work and Play 12 Embellish Bundle.

Fab projects to help inspire you this week! Big thanks to the team!

So let's get to today's inspiration... We're bringing you some Christmas in July inspiration today - it's time for those of us who like to be organised or need to make and sell at fayres etc to get started with the big C word - eek!

RachaelHi everyone.  It's never too early to make a start on your Christmas cards and these super cute gnomes are perfect for it!  I used the digi stamp called 'put your boots on' which is perfect for wintery cards!  I coloured him using alcohol makers and layered him up with added sparkle for the festive feel.

 Merja - I wanted to make a Christmas card with non-traditional colours. I used super cute Delivering Gifts by Sledge digi stamp and coloured it with alcohol markers using pastel colour scheme.  Then I added some pink and violet background papers on the violet card base. The light violet paper is from Halloween/Autumn Paper Heaven 2 set. Lastly I added the sentiment from Winnie White Christmas Big Kahuna bundle.

 Pam - Shop, shop, shop..... Winnie is starting her Christmas shopping early with her Frosty friend in this 'Snow Shopping' image.  I've  colored it with Copic markers with additional 'Diamond' Stickles added to the fur. The background paper is from Polkadoodles Bright & Beautiful paper pack and the pink polka-dotted trees are die cut using the Polkadoodles Layering Trees Die. Lastly the sentiment is from Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Sentiment / Quote Bundle. 

Nunzia: making cards for Christmas in July makes me so happy. More this Letters mail Gnome is such a cute image that it is irresistible to color. The papers that I used to cut the banners come from Papers 3 Winnie White Christmas while the sentiment is one of the Gnome tastic sentiments.

ARIADNA Hello crafters! The challenge of this week is "Get organised for Christmas" and to start preparing our christmas cards!. I fell in love with Elvis Wesley Moose Bauble Decoration  - I colored the stamp with my favorite colour pencils and for the background I drew a christmas ornament with a wihite color pencil and also used some watercolor crayons in different red colors in a craft cardstock.  Hope you like it!
KIM SIMPSONWho doesn’t love Christmas in July?  I got a jump start on my holiday cards for this week’s challenge!   I created this fun card using the adorable Hollybobs Mistletoe digital stamp and paired it with a die-cut tag and some of the digital papers from the amazing Elvis Wesley Moose collection! 
GABYI´m so in love with this adorable digital stamp!! For this card I used Robin Gift Branch - Digital Stamp download from the Winnie White Christmas printables. This stamp is super cute and perfect for Christmas cards!! 


Stunning  projects to help inspire you to maybe get started this week! Big thanks to the team!
