Wk 49 Card making & craft challenge - Anything Goes at Polkadoodles

It's time for a brand new card making & crafting challenge!...




THE WINNERS OF OUR LAST CHALLENGE ARE AT THE END OF THIS POST
----------------------


     
   

So let's get to today's inspiration...today the team were asked to create something for a Winter Wedding - let's see what the team made for us...

Nikky - I love our Blooms digi stamp collection and Bloom 4 was my first go-to for this challenge. I just printed out this digistamp in grey (adjust your printer settings) onto some nice white textured card and also printed a sentiment using a font on my computer. I just added some light grey card at the end of this slimline card blank and cut the digi in half so it was very subtle and elegant - perfect for a wedding invitation, easy and fast to make so perfect for the whole set of stationery and it costs next to nothing if you have a wedding coming up on a budget!
RachaelAwww a white winter wedding, how romantic!  For this card I used a Christmas gnome stamp set called meet me under the mistletoe as I thought they made the cutest pair!  I wanted a cream and soft colour theme so went for monochromatic colouring with lots of sparkle!  The flowers are from a different stamp set called poinsettia greetings, I just fussy cut around the pot leaving the blooms to decorate! 

Pam For my inspirational card today I've used Winnie Fairytale Dreamer and the Bridegroom images to make this elegant wedding step card.  After coloring the images with Copic markers, I fussy cut each of them out.  The step card was cut with coordinating blue cardstock and the front panel covered with digital paper from the Love & Kisses digital package. 


Merja - My studies are taking so much of my time at the moment so I went with a super simple style. I stamped some gift packages here and there using Curly Christmas Stamp Set. Then I added a sentiment from Birthday Celebrations Stamp Set and some acrylic diamonds. Really simple card, but I like it 😊
 

Nunzia: for my winter wedding card, the main characters are this cute couple in their wedding car. The patterned digi papers are from Love Romance paper bundle while the poinsettias are printed and fussed cut from Winnie Winterland digis. Sentiments on the steps are from Love Always-printable sentiments and the big one from Winnie celebrations 2.


Great projects, thanks so much to the whole team, we hope you are feeling inspired!

Wk 48 Card making & craft challenge - Anything Goes at Polkadoodles

It's time for a brand new card making & crafting challenge!...




THE WINNERS OF OUR LAST CHALLENGE ARE AT THE END OF THIS POST
----------------------


     
   

So let's get to today's inspiration... this week the team were asked to create something they could send as a gift - let's see what they made for us, they're amazing! 

 Judy: I've created a quick and easy gift card holder for this week's DT project. Paper, embellies, frame and word art from the Christmas Joy Digiscrap Download Bundle were used. This bundle has everything you need for holiday crafting.


NataliaToday we inspire you to make Christmas gifts. I made a Christmas wooden box. I was encouraged by the Lets Go Gnome stamp. I thought it would look great on the box. I painted it half and half with acrylic paints and Distress. To decorate the sides of the box, I used a stencil of Polka Dot Mesh and blue Distress Oxide. It's ideal for small bits of chocolates and cookies or as house decoration. I'm waiting to see your Christmas gifts.

ENRICA - Hello everyone! For my gift this week I made a simple Explosion Box using the cute Baked With Love - Stocking Filler digital craft download colored with Copic, and two papers from Baked With Love - Paper Heaven 1 digital craft paper download.  I completed my project with another small box inside and decorated with elements from the Baked With Love - Embellies digital craft paper download.  Crafty hugs! xx

SabinaFor today's challenge, I made a very simple greeting card with a pocket in which you can put e.g. tea bags. I used the Snowmen Friends stamp, colored it with alcohol markers and added the sentiment from the Winnie Daisy greetings, quotes and sentiments set.
Donna ParrottFor this weeks project I created a little bag by first embroidering over a stamped image from the Night Sky set onto fabric. Once I’d finished stitching, I created a simple zip up bag and matching tassel.

WOW!! Incredible projects, thanks so much to the whole team, we hope you are feeling inspired!

Wk 47 Card making & craft challenge - Anything Goes at Polkadoodles - and Design Team Call for 2023!

It's time for a brand new card making & crafting challenge!...




THE WINNERS OF OUR LAST CHALLENGE ARE AT THE END OF THIS POST
----------------------


     
   

So let's get to today's inspiration... this week the team were asked to create something using digital papers - let's see what they made for us! 

Rachael - I made this little tag/recipe book using papers from the Gingerbread Holly release which I love...this is a gift for someone this Christmas so I can't say too much more!

Pam Our Design Team challenge this week was to create our own wrapping paper using Polkadoodles products.  I selected the Fancy Intricate Bauble die as my design base.  After coloring one image with Copic RV19 and B06, I scanned the image and used Photoshop to duplicate my pattern for the paper. As you can see, I did two designs. After printing, I used distressed oxides with the  Polkadoodles Confetti Layering Stencil on the top package and the Timeless Rose, Delicious Swirls Stencil on the bottom package. Lastly, I added coordinating gold and blue organza bows to the packages and they are ready to go! 

Merja - I made chocolate gift box using this beautiful paper from Winnie Winterland Paper Heaven 6 pack. I think it doesn't need much more so I just stamped a text with Gnome Hand Delivered stamp set, added a big golden bow and some satin ribbon to the sides.

Nunzia: today I propose a very cute packaging. I used some elements from Blooms butterfly bundle: the butterflies that I printed in different sizes, the sentiment on the scalloped circle and two sheets of patterned. I added another one included in Winnie sunshine delights. From these sheets I cut some strips to make the paper bow.

Kim SimpsonThis week, the Design Team was challenged to get creative with wrapping.  I decided to create a gift box with a belly band using some of the digital papers from the Elvis Wesley Moose Collection.  I wanted to make this package extra special, so I colored up the sweet Evie with Poinsettia digital stamp, also from the Elvis Wesley Moose collection, with Copic markers, created a rosette from cardstock that I stenciled, and turned it into an ornament that can be removed from the package and hung on the tree. 


NataliaFor today's inspiration, I made two paper rosettes based on new digi papers - Gingerbread Holly Papers 2. I also cut pictures of gingerbread men from these papers and used the sentiments from the set - Gingerbread Holly printable Greeting/Sentiments. My rosettes are perfect for decorating a Christmas tree or gingerbread boxes.
