Julie Nagle -This Vacation themed card was so fun & easy to create using digital images from PolkaDoodles Winnie Starfish Collection, Work & Play 3 Collection. This whimsical Caravan Lady is ready to embark on a grand adventure, armed with her trusty passport, luggage, and a heart full of excitement! A lovely backdrop of beautiful blue sky digital paper provides the perfect setting for this postcard style greeting card. Her camera ready to capture all the unforgettable moments that lie ahead. She's got everything she needs for a fantastic vacation, and the sentiment: "See you soon!" passes on her excited vacation vibes! Safe travels!

Irre - Hello everyone. Today I want to share a new canvas with you. I created this for Polkadoodles and used a digital stamp for that. The one I used is from the Darling buds collection, and this one is names Primrose flower girl. I colored the stamp with Copics and cut out the stamp. I laid the stamp aside while I was working with the canvas. For the canvas, I added modeling paste through a stencil and then painted the canvas with gesso. Then, I started to decorate one of the corners. I decorated it with many different elements. After that, I painted all the decorations with white gesso. Next, colored the canvas with watercolors. Now, it was time to add the stamp to the canvas. I then, dry painted the decorations with white gesso to enhance the textures. I also added some splatters. Finally, I decorated it with some rhinestones. My Instagram: @scrapbyirre

Merja - I combined Bob the Dog in a Boat image and Coast Beach Sea background image with a text editor program, printed and coloured it with alcohol markers. I die cut the image and added a blue cardboard behind it. The background paper is from Starfish & Sandcastles paper pack and I added a fish net die cut on one corner and added some blue Distress Ink around the paper before taping it to white cardboard. Then I taped the image on the background paper. Lastly I added the sun, bees, butterfly and reed images that I stamped with Unfrogettable & Toadal Sweetheart stamp sets and coloured with alcohol markers.

Renske - Hello, everyone! This time we as a design team were asked to create an interactive card. I love interactive cards, and the "Sky is the Limit" digital stamp is perfect for a slider card. I made a stencil for the moon myself, you punch a circle from acetate and this is perfect for creating a moon, for example. I used my distress inks and oxides for the background. I coloured the stamp with alcohol markers. In the sentiment set Panda Noodles sentiments, I found the perfect text: You are magical. I hope I have been able to inspire you again. Happy Crafting.

Christine - Hi everyone, I immediately fell for this cute and fun Cheer Unicorn from the Sparkly Unicorn collection. She is just perfect for a fun and playful card so I couldn`t resist making a shaker card. The sentiment is from the same Sparkly Unicorn collection, and I went with the black and white edition.
I colored her up with my Copic markers and here are the colors I used:Skin: T7-5, W1-0, E41, R20-000
Hair: B21-23-24
Y00-11-13-17

ENRICA - Hello crafty friends!This week the DT was asked to make an interactive card using pink and green. For my project I have decided for the super sweet Gardening Lily Ladybug Ladybird digital stamp, colored with pencils. I’ve used several patterned papers… the pinks are from the Spring Tons of Love paper patterns 1,the green of the big circle is from the Happy Cactus Succulent printable paper patterns 1 and the pink and green of the square is from the Lily Bug Ladybird papers 1. On the inside I have used three digital elements from the Lily Bug Ladybird Ephemera set. Smile, you are amazing! Isn’t this a wonderful message to surprise a dear friend?


Judy: The DT was asked to create an interactive card for this week's challenge. We were also asked to use pink and green as our color combo. I chose to do a twisted easel card. My focal for the front of the card is one of the pre-colored images from the Pretty Flower Wreath Digi Deal. Also used 2 of the patterned papers and a sentiment from this set on the inside of the card. I fussy cut the wreath and popped onto a white circle die cut. I stamped a border on the front.

Renske - Hello everyone! We are already approaching Father's Day, so I created a fun card in a box with a barbecue theme. I used a digital stamp called "BBQ Chef Cook Gnome for Men" and coloured it with alcohol markers before cutting it out. I covered the card in the box with patterned paper from the "Gnome Men BBQ" set and also die-cut flags from another patterned paper from the same set. To create a fun scene, I added grass strips, trees, and a sky in the background. The sentiment "Best Dad Ever" from the "Gnome Men Greetings" set was placed on the front of the card in blue letters. I hope this inspires you. Happy crafting!

This week the DT was asked to share a project to celebrate Father’s Day and for my card I decided for the super cute Superhero - Little Dudes digi stamp, the themed paper and the themed sentiment I chose are included in the set. I colored this sweet guy with Copic and used Distress Ink to create the rays in the background. Hope you like it!
Have a wonderful week, Big hugs, Enrica

Judy: This week's DT project is a Father's Day card created with the Greatest Guy Men's Themed 4 x 4" Stamp Set. I went really simple with this card, just stamping some of the words and the sentiment with different colors of ink. Thin strips of blue cardstock to match my card base were added. The patterned paper on the left side is from Rainbow Paper Digital Download Bundle.
