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


Pam - I selected Polkadoodles Lilac Haze Watercoloured Flowers. and made bright bold red flowers with monochromatic leaves that coordinated with the background paper from the digital package. After adding the solid background matting, I cut the coordinating red cardstock to wrap around the card. Once the flaps were secured, I added the tiny die cut scalloped edging and then the sentiment in the center of the 'v' to complete the card design.


Merja - I've wanted to use this beautiful Natures Beauty Girl image ever since I saw it first time ๐Ÿ’š I wanted to try something different and do a little messy look so I chose to play with Ecoline Brush Pens and water - even though there were the change that the printer ink would start to spread. But it didn't spread so much, maybe because I printed the image few weeks ahead. It was a nice change for using something else than alcohol markers and I think that messy look fits perfectly with this image.

RACHAEL - Have you been asked to make some wedding cards, invitations, save the dates, or other table wear for a wedding? This clear stamp set called Wedding Season is perfect for making them. For this invitation, I used a gatefold design with a wraparound front, embellished with the stamps in the set. To make matching backing paper I used the tiny heart in the set to randomly stamp making perfect matching papers! simple but elegant!

Nunzia - I created this card using the Happy Cactus collection which is so cute...

Wendy L - I created this pop up box using precoloured digital stamps from the Perfect Peony collection - unusual for me not to color myself but sometimes you just need to make something different to the norm. Hope you like it!


Janelle: Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing this super cute Bathtime Elephant. I just can't get over how sweet this one is and how fun it was to color!!

Rachael - I've used this lovely Perfectly Balanced January digi stamp - I love that she's also a clipart version too so you don't have to colour, but I wanted to co-ord her with my card ...hope you like her!

Renske - Hello everyone, we were tasked to create an easel card using a Lucy Monkman stamp. For my card, I decided to combine two digital stamps: "Garden Flowers/Watering Can" and "Cute Girl with Flowers". The easel card was perfect for creating a cute scene, so I placed the girl behind a window with a plant and a watering can sitting in the grass in front of it.
To complete the scene, I also used the "Nuts About You" clear stamp set. From this set, I used the tree trunk and leaves. I then added digital paper from the "Helga Hippo Paper Heaven 4" set to the bottom of the card. The colours of the paper perfectly matched the card background. I also used the same ink I used for the stone background on the patterned paper to make it match better. Finally, to complete the easel card, I used the sentiment "You're blooming great" as a stopper. I found this sentiment in the "Spring Gnome Fun Puns, Quotes, and Sentiments" digital paper set. I hope my card inspires you. Happy Crafting!

Irre - Hello everyone. I'm back with a new project for Polkadoodles. I chose this time to create a small canvas. I created this with the digital stamp called Rebel Rebel Girl. I colored her with Copic alcohol markers. The background of the canvas I colored with ink spray and acrylic paints. I decorated the canvas with sewing thread behind the colored stamp and framed the canvas with black flower pot stones. I added some more textures with art stones and added with splatters to the canvas. Finally, I added a title from the Winnie Daisy greetings, quotes and sentiment pack.  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/scrapbyirreInstagram: @scrapbyirre



ENRICA - Hello everyone! This week the DT was asked to make an Easel Card using one of the cute images from Lucy Monkman and for my round card I’ve colored the sweet Bunny and Birds, a super cute image of a Bunny with Birds singing, absolutely perfect for spring cards. I’ve colored it with Copic and Distress Ink for the background, added a sentiment from the Darling Buds greetings sentiment on the inside of the card. Hope you like it as much as I do! xx

Judy: This week I created an easel card. The card base was die cut and layered. My focal image is a Lucy Monkman digi, Dog Sitting On Parcels/Gifts. I colored with Spectrum Noir Market and fussy cut. I placed a patterned paper strip behind the image from the Birthday Fun 6x6 Paper Pack. Enamel dots were added. The inside of the card has my sentiment which is from Winnie Celebrations Kit 1 Sentiment Pack. I printed on white card and layered onto a yellow die cut. The bunting was die cut, colored and popped with foam tape to act as my stop for the card front flap.

RACHAEL - Hello everyone. Spring is finally here and we can celebrate the gardens coming back to life and the start of warmer days! To cheer me up while we wait for the sun, I made this pastel card using spring plants gnome digi image. To add extra interest I changed the size of the pots and flipped some around, so they look different, before colouring them in. Don't just look at an image as a whole, look at what parts you can use separately too!

Janelle: Hello crafty friends! Today I have a super cute rainbow unicorn card using the Hooray -Sparkle Unicorn . LOL my young son kept insisting this card was more like a dollar bill than a card๐Ÿ˜. As always for more inspiration you can check out my IG @janelle.paper.sparkles

  • Shirt: BV000, BV00

Pam - For today's Birthday card with a fun fold challenge I've selected Polkadoodles Nature's Beauty and followed a tutorial for a Tricorn fold card. I made the card base out of Kraft paper and decorated with a blue leaf pattern sheet from Polkadoodles Bright and Beautiful Craft Papers. After Copic coloring the image and die cutting, I inked the edge with Copic YR18 and secured to the center of the standing card base. I popped up and secured the two line sentiments 'Special Lady' 'Let's Celebrate' from the Polkadoodles Birthday Fun Craft papers to complete this fun fold card.

Merja - I wanted to use one of the Rebel images because I love them, so I chose to go with Reach for the Stars image. I coloured the image with alcohol markers. The background paper is from Little Monsters paper set and I think it works perfectly with this image. STAR letters are from Tropical Sorbet pack - I printed, cut and added some glossy accent on them before I taped them on the card with foam tape. Lastly I added a few star die cuts.

Nunzia: the gate card is my favourite folded card. It seems like a stage and when you open it you discover a surprise inside. I chose to colour Mr Sox the fox and I created a simple scene with crayons, then I fremed all with the papers included in the fox bundle. I closed the gate card with a strip of patterned and an oval tag. Both the sentiments are from Winnie Celebrations-2 bundle.

Judy: My DT card for this week's challenge is a fun birthday card featuring Toadal Sweetheart 4x4 Stamp Set. I stamped this cute frog onto white card stock and colored with Spectrum Noir Markers. I also stamped and colored one of the bees. Patterned papers from the Toadally Cute 6x6 Paper Pad were die cut and arranged on the card base. The sentiment from the stamp set was stamped.

Renske - Hello everyone! This time, as a design team, we got to work on a spring birthday card. To create the card, I used the digital stamp "Bella Bear Gift-Fuzzypufs" and coloured it with my alcohol markers. For the background, I used yellow patterned paper from the "Spring Gnomes Pattern Paper" set. I also cut out flowers and bees from other patterned papers from the same set. To complete the spring scene, I place Bella Bear in the grass with flowers and sun behind passing clouds. To make the card fit the birthday theme, I added the text "Happy Birthday" from the "Birthday Sentiment & Greetings" set. I hope you like the creation and Happy Crafting! My Instagram: @renske.wishes.youFacebook: Renske.wishes.you

ENRICA - Hi crafty friends! For my spring birthday card I’ve used 3 cute pandas from the ‘Noodle Panda Bear’ collection Balloon Flowers, Birthday surprise and Flower Bouquet, colored with Copic. The patterned papers are from the Spring into Easter paper patterns – set 2 and the sentiment is from the Winnie Celebrations 3 digi kit. This is absolutely one of my favorite set, so cute and easy to color! Have a great weekend xx

Natalia Kuzak - I used the No Rain No Flowers Stamps and stencils from the latest Polkadoodles One of A Kind collection. I love how it's so easy to add lots of layers and inks to something like this tag...
