Let's see the inspiration from the team - we've been creating lots of gorgeous projects for you...


ENRICA - Hi everyone! For my flowers themed project this week I’ve made a card in a box using the super cute Picking Flowers Fairy Winnie Daisy digital stamp together with the beautiful flowers of the Flower Meadow printable set, all the images are colored with Copic markers. Patterned papers are from the Flower Meadow printable set and Winnie Daisy Fairy - Paper Patterns 1, the sentiment is from the Everyday greetings and quotes - Winnie Daisy Fairy set. Love these cute sets, they add a sprinkle of sweetness to every crafting project!

Christine - I had so much fun creating this purse card as my inspiration for this week's challenge using only the absolutely stunning papers and precolored images from the Flower Meadow collection. If you haven't tried to use digital papers before then go check them out because you are in for a treat. I`m always amazed at how well printing at home turns out. I kept my embellishment for this project really clean, letting the papers be the star of this purse card. I used a strong magnet for my closure so the purse keeps nice and closed. On the inside I created a little tuck space for a tag to write my personal message on. You could also add a gift card in there. The sentiment I used on the inside is from the Winnie Daisy messages bundle. ๐Ÿ’ฎ My IG: ckndesign_craft ๐Ÿ’ฎ


Renske - Hello everyone! Our design team was tasked with creating a card featuring flowers and an unusual shape. I chose to design a double-diamond card. For the flower theme, I selected the digital stamp "Daffodil Flower Girl Darling Buds." After colouring it with alcohol markers, I cut it out.For the double diamond, I used sturdy white paper and patterned paper from two different sets: "Gnome Men Fishing" and "Pretty Printable Papers 1 - Helga Hippo." The squares on the sides come from the "Gnome Men Fishing" set, and the area where the digital stamp is located is from the "Helga Hippo" set. Since alcohol markers bleed through a bit on the back, I adhered the digital stamp onto white paper and cut it out again to ensure the bleed-through is not visible. On the yellow paper from the "Spring Gnome" paper set, I punched out a flower shape and placed a white circle in the middle. I used a flower from the digital stamp, coloured it, and placed it in a white circle on both sides. To complete the card, I used a sentiment from the "Spring Flowers Mother's Day Friends Greeting" set, cutting it out and adhering it under the digital stamp. The card is now ready, and I hope it inspires you. Happy Crafting!

Irre - Hello everyone. Sharing today a birthday card, I used a digital stamp called Miss you from the Winnie Sugar sprinkles Spring collection. I colored the stamp with Copics alcohol markers and then cut the stamp out. For the background, I colored in a white paper with Distress ink through a stencil. Then, I stamped the paper with different stamps. Some with black ink and some with purple ink. I attached the colored stamp to the paper with foam pillows. I also added a sentiment from the stamp set Just hangin’ Little Dude. Finally, I attached it all to a white card base. Instagram: @scrapbyirre / Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_BjwL9Z8gt1i_E1WmKmrWg


Judy: This week the DT was asked to created a card with an unusual shape and to use images with flowers. I chose to go with Picking Flowers Fairy Winnie Daisy. She was colored with Prismacolor Pencils and fussy cut. My card base was die cut. A cloud patterned paper was added to the background. This printable paper is from Pretty Spring Papers. A die cut fence was added and Winnie popped on top. The sentiment is from Winnie Fairy Daisy Everyday Greetings and Quotes.

The collar fits over the neck of the BBQ sauce bottle to create a super fun gift for your favorite chef in hopes of a delicious day!! My socials: Instagram, Facebook
Wendy - Hi everyone! For today's challenge, the Design Team is creating cards with food and drinks. Of course, I had to use the Coffee and Cake Big Value Bundle for mine. It's my absolute favorite, full of coffee (love it) and cupcakes (YUM). I decided to use the milkshake image and cute the middle out to turn into a frappuccino shaker. I used some simple paper piecing using papers from this bundle to create a cupcake wrapper and drink sleeve.
Copic Markers I used:
Wall - BG10
Table - E30, E31, E33, E42, E43
Cupcake - E51, E53, E55
Wrapper and Bow - RV34 (wrapper shadow); R35, R37, R39

JANELLE - Hello crafty friends! Here’s a sweet mousy tag using Birthday Mouse to wish a happy birthday. ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿญ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿง€๐ŸฉตFor more inspiration check out my IG page @janelle.paper.sparkles

Merja - This time I wanted to do something different and came up with the idea of a cupcake accordion card. I used Waffle Cream Frosting Cupcake digi stamp and designed the card with a text editor program. I arranged the cupcakes near each other before printing and then cut the print with an electric cutting machine. I fold the cardboard between cupcakes with a little help of a bone folder and then coloured the cupcakes with alcohol markers. Lastly I added die cut letters saying "Happy bday!". This was a super fun project!

Christine - Hi everyone. For today's card I had fun coloring a lake scene with the adorable little gnome gone fishing. I just can`t get enough of the Gnomes for men collection lately so I have several of them. I kept my card design clean to really make this Copic colored scene pop. I hope you liked it, and that you got some inspiration to grab your favourite coloring medium.
๐Ÿ’ฎ My IG: ckndesign_craft ๐Ÿ’ฎ

ENRICA - Hi everyone! I love gnomes and was so happy for this week assignment! For my card I used the super cute Gardening Gnome layered on the Country Road Scene background, colored with Copic. I added a sentiment and a few small flowers, hope you like it!

Renske - Hello, everyone! This time, we were asked to use a gnome for our card. I chose the digital stamp "Gnometastic Strawberry Dream". He's so cute, and I love strawberries, so it's a perfect match. For my card, I wanted the gnome to be seated at a table. I created a textured background with the idea of a wallpapered wall, using black paper at the bottom of the panel to represent a tablecloth. I used patterned paper from the "Gnome Men Golf digital paper set" to form a wavy edge with a die, letting it hang in a triangle shape and placing the gnome in the middle. I also included two texts: "Gnome Sweet Gnome" from the set "Spring Gnome Fun puns, quotes and sentiments" on the wall and "Just wanted to make you smile" from the "Winnie Daisy Messages set" on the tablecloth and next to it. To complete the card, I added a bow. Hopefully, I was able to inspire you again. Happy Crafting! My Instagram: @renske.wishes.you Facebook: Renske.wishes.you

Judy: The DT was asked to create with a gnome for this week's challenge. I chose to go with a Christmas card using the Gnome Chimney Capers Matchables Stamp SetI stamped one of the gnome images, the sentiment and the holly corner stamp. They were colored with Prismacolor Pencils and cut with the matching dies. I fussy cut the sentiment. The gnome was popped onto a hexagon die cut and all the images were arranged on a background of 2 patterned papers.

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.
