Today we're welcoming some super new crafters onto the team and we can't wait to start sharing their work with you all! So big huge welcomes to Mayte and Naomi!

Naomi - Hello everyone! Excited to be here, YAY! I did a gift bag for this week's "anything but a card" challenge. I picked Gnometastic Sunny for my main digi, with two digital papers behind him, which are Halloween Trick or Treat printable papers and the Halloween Trick or Treat printable papers bundle 2. The tissue paper for the gift bag was made by printing Polkadoodles printable papers on a sheet of tissue paper to match the background of the gift bag! The two cute acorns attached to the ribbons are from the fall-autumn Digi bundle. As for the sentiment, I picked a matching sentiment from the Spring Gnome fun puns, quotes and sentiments-printable stamps for cardmaking. Gnometastic Sunny is coloured using my Ohuhu markers. Please see below for the colours that I used. Follow me on Instagram
I used the following colours:
  • Hat: BR1, YR5, YR2
  • Shirt: Y10, Y4
  • Pants: BR1, YR5, YR2, & Y3, Y11, Y2, Y1
  • Beard/ Shoes: CG1100, CG1104, CG1107
  • Leaves: G1, G3, G8
  • Flowers: Y3, Y11, Y2
  • Accorns: BR1, YR5, YR2

Mayte CastaƱeda - hello everyone I'm so excited to be part of the Polkadoodles team! I made a cute Halloween Tag for this first post - I love this Witch digi so much! She is from the Spellbinding Witches collection and is called Cordelia - I look forward to following your blogs and hope you will also follow my social too!...

Sara Wyles - I've made this all-out purple card today using strips of embossed card and this super cute image from the Boo Halloween collection called Bat Girl Boo - she is SO adorable!

Pam ~ Our challenge this week was 'no cards - tags, books or gift bags. With Halloween approaching, I decided to make a tag to add to a gift or treat bag. I covered my 2" x 4" Kraft tag with the spiderweb paper from Polkadoodles Boneshakin' Halloween Craft papers. I cut and Copic colored a full moon for the background and secured it. Then I stamped and colored several of the images from the Scary Boo stamp set and fussy cut them out. I raised the bat, girl and top of the candle stick with foam and secured the other pieces at the base to completed the cute little tag.

Merja - This time I made a glittery flower tag. I used the Blossoming Rose stencil and glitter paint pens to create this beautiful flowery background (sorry, the glitter doesn't show very well, it's a pain to photograph). I think the pattern itself is so beautiful that I only added a congratulations text stamped on vellum (using the Sentimentals stamp set) and a black satin ribbon.

Irre - Sharing today a new project made for Polkadoodles. As a focal point, I used the digital stamp called Serenity Fairy kisses. I colored her with Copics and then cut her out. The background is made of watercolor paper. I colored it in with Distress ink, water splats, and stamps from Best day ever. I decorated with sewing threads, purple flowers, die-cut out leaves from the Super sprigs cutting die. I added a sentiment and added some white splats with white acrylic paint.

Wendy - Hi everyone! I'm stepping outside of my comfort zone today and NOT making a card. Instead, I've used the new super adorable Snow Globe Carol Singing Bella Christmas Bear to create a really fun double sided shaker ornament. I just love Bella and all of her adorable friends in the Christmas Bear bundle. It's that time of year when we need to get a move on and make those Christmas cards and crafts. Play along with the challenge today and start crafting with me. I can't wait to see what you create! Thank you for looking!

Nunzia: my project today is a handmade paper bag. I decorated it with a patterned sheet from Lily bug papers and flowers cut out from another piece of paper. I coloured this charming Girl with flowers in hair with alcohol markers, fussy cut it and glued to one side of the bag. The sentiment is part of Lily bug messages.

Rachael - Hello crafting friends!. Rachael here again with some more inspiration. You don't just have to make cards with your crafty stash. how about using some stamps and some card to make bag toppers for cute trick-or-treat bags. these could be for a party, or just to hand out. I used a stamp set called Fab-boo-lous but you could use any image for any occasion.

Wow!! Lots of gorgeous inspiration for you this week to use - we hope you'll share what you make with your Polkadoodles products on our Social Media! Share in our Facebook group here
