oOo--oOo--oOo

Now onto the fabulous inspiration from the Design Team.

Ruth:  I'm really liking the Belle Papillon collection so I'm using it again for my card for this week!  I save all my offcuts of card when making square card blanks and I've used one here as my base.  All I've added is some ink, waxed twine, half pearls and a heart pearl slider I found in my stash.
Jacki - Hi everyone for my card today I have made a digital designed card using some of the papers and image from the new ubber sweet Winnie Special Moments download then printed it off to make a quick and easy card.
Tina I have created for you a Slider Card and used different digital design papers. You can find them in the big Set "Winnie Sugar Sprinkles"As you see, you can pull out the paper strip and the sweet unicorn runs to the right side. Then you can see a hidden text. This sweet unicorn is now available in the shop. "Be a Fluffy Unicorn"There you will also find all his friends, including themed sentiments.
Anjie - I've used papers and embellies form one of my fave collections, Picknix 1. I've used the Home Grown bundle for this, or you can buy the whole collection here, which of course is better value as you get 3 kits for less than the price of 2.
Michelle - For my project today I have used the Sticks and Bones collection I have used the papers, embellishments, animals and Digi image from this collection to make this box card.
Bev here and I used the content from Horace & Boo to decorate both the inside & outside of my make this week. Sometimes it's nice to use pre-coloured images and play around within your graphics programme.

Claire C - I've made a card using the beautiful Eden collection this week. I coloured the image (Eden Butterflies) with markers and layered her up over 3 of the lovely papers in the collection and added some of the little butterflies and a sentiment too.


Such fabulous creations, really lovely and inspiring!

We have lots and lots of fabulous new downloads in the store this month, including 17 new Too Cute images which were added just this week, so make sure you check them out, HOW CUTE?!


Now onto the fabulous inspiration from the Design Team.

Ruth:  I've gone back to the wonderful collection that is Belle Papillon Collection and teamed it with the versatile Flowers 2 Die.  I've layered up one of the butterflies and curled the wings for extra depth.  The flowers have been layered with left over papers plus some blue and white tissue paper that I found in my stash.

Jacki - For my card today I have used the new release Ula's life collection I have really enjoyed using these images in the last week I have coloured her in using Polychromo pencils and then added papers from Octavia collection and added the die border Toadstool I finished off with a floppy bow to complete my card.
Helen - Well what can you say about the fabulous Horace and Boo Collection, so much cuteness all in one place and delicious papers and embellies to. I've teamed them up with some of Nikky's fabulous dies to. I've used Bubbleicious and the Ribbon Gift dies you can find them here at the store.
Pauline - I've used papers from the Belle Papillon Vintage CD to create my card.  The daisy is from the Daisy Daisy Stamp & Cut Set, I stamped and fussy cut it because I didn't want the white border that is left by the die.  The sentiment is from the Daisydays CD and my die cut element is the largest die from the Ribbon/Gift Frames & Corners die set.
Karon - I have used the wonderful Lavender Tea Collection for the papers in my card today.  My flowers are cut using the Flowers 2 Die, along with the Elegant Flourish Die and the Flower Flourish Die to add some leafy elements.  Also just had to use the Elegant Nesting Dies - set of 3 to layer up.
Lisa - I have made a card using papers and elements from Belle Papillon Big Kahuna Download. I have also used a one of the dies from the Elegant Nest Dies but I changed it up a little by cutting out the middle of the die cut.
Carol - I made a card using paper from Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles Paper 3 download and the gorgeous Friendly Cuddles from the Horace and Boo Collection coloured in with copics. Using dies to cut my scalloped oval and lacy decorations for the card, topped off with some tulips and a bow.
Such fabulous creations!...

 Check them all out here!

Now let's see what wonderful inspiration the Design Team have for you this week....The DT's twist on the challenge theme is Use a Die Cut and if you want to join in with that theme then go for it :-)

Tina: For my card I used "Dollie Daydream Goes East" and colored with Polychromos. A little bit glitter on it and so "You Can Do Anything. 
Anjie - I used the Polkadoodles Bubbleicious die set for this make. I cut the two frames from watercolour card and then left the die in place and used a distress ink to add some colour around the edge of the die. I mounted the frames onto 3D foam and stuck them down. I then stamped out the Flamingo, flowers and foliage from the Tropical Paradise Flamingo stamp set, also onto watercolour card. Again I used the distress ink to colour them in. I then sprayed the flowers and leaves with water so the card became pliable. I then shaped the flowers and leaves, added some stamens to the flowers and glued in place on the card.
Bev  with a cute little easel card made using Winnie Starfish/Sandcastles Collection. Great minds think alike as I too used the Bubbleicious Frame Die. My image is coloured in with Prisma Pencils.
Claire C I've used stamps from the beautiful Bella Fleur A5 Clear stamp set to create this little wildflower meadow. The butterfly is from Belle Papillon Stamp Set and I've used the matching Butterfly Doublet Die to create the butterfly using acetate and glitter on the back.
Michelle For my project I have used the brand new ULA the one I have used is called ULA Life Journal  and for my die cuts I have used Ribbon gift frames and corners dies 
Lou: I've used stamps from the Tropical Flowers stamp set and the following dies: Ribbon Gift Frame & Cherry Blossom Branch. The stamped images have been watercoloured and mounted on to the branches. I have also extended the Ribbon Gift Frame to make a much longer panel. The sentiment is from the Belle Papillion stamp set.

 

 Lots of fabulous creations to inspire you....

Now onto the fabulous inspiration from the Design Team.

Tina: I decorated a picture frame and used a Design Sheet from Winnie Sugar Sprincle - No.3
The Big Bundle Winnie Sugar Sprincle you can find hereThe flowers I have made from Foamiran itself. Everywhere a bit glitter glue on it, gives the whole a sweet playfulness. 
Lou: I have used one of the design sheets from the Winnie In Wonderland collection to create my card. Gilding flakes and glitter glue add to the card design but other that that, it's all Winnie ...

AnjieI've used design sheet 1 from the ever so sweet Winnie Sugar Sprinkles collection. I started by drawing faux stitching around the edge of the card and running an ink pad around the edge of the paper. I then fussy cut and mounted all the embellies on to 3D foam before placing them on the card. 
Claire C I've made a cute chocolate themed card using one of the papers and Design Sheets from Winnie Sugar Sprinkles, you can find the sheet I used here or you can buy the full collection here
Bev here, I thought I'd use Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Springtime Design Sheet. I'm amazed at how much Nikky manages to cram onto one of these things. I left the little banner plain for now that way I can personalise it for my intended recipient. 
Michelle For my project I have used Sugar Sprinkle Collection I have just used a Design sheet to make this card Winnie Sugar Sprinkle Design sheet 1  There is so much to create with on the design sheets they are marvellous...
Such fabulous creations from the team, make sure you check out all those lovely Design Sheets we've been using!

Week 16 - Anything Goes - Polkadoodles Paper Crafting Challenge

Shop on Etsy

--------------------------------------------------------------

Hello! We are starting a New Challenge this week...

ANYTHING GOES

Closes Noon, GMT, Friday 5 May. Winner will receive a $10 voucher to the Polkadoodles Digi Store.

You do not need to use Polkadoodles Products to enter our challenges, but we do love seeing your fabulous creations with Polkadoodles images.
We only have a few little rules and they are over there in the side bar ------->

Before we see what the Design Team have been up to, have you seen the latest Polkadoodles New Release?
Say hello to the Fabulous, super adorable and cutest new collection

Aren't they totally adorable.  You can check out the Polkadoodles Gallery for the latest

creations by the Design Team using this wonderful collection HERE!

And why not pop along to our fabulous POLKADOODLES FACEBOOK GROUP, there
is always lots of daily inspiration to see and to get those creative juices flowing.

Now let's see what wonderful inspiration the Design Team have for you this week....
The DT's twist on the challenge theme is to use A Design Sheet from one of the collections,
and if you want to join in with that theme then go for it :-)

Jacki - For my cards this week I was spoiled for choice I had already designed my first card using Sticks and Bones DS 2  Then our lovely Nikky goes and releases the ubber cute Horace and Boo so I decided to use one of these as well, well who can resist! Both cards were super easy to make For the sticks and Bones I used a paper and image with greeting and attached them to my card blank using some bones as embellies. For my other this was just using just a topper from DS 2 and then using an embellishment (fishbowl) to finish.

Ruth:  I've used one of the design sheets from Work and Play Vol 12 plus added some buttons and black card from my stash.  Really nice and easy to use plus I can get two cards plus lots of extra elements from one sheet!
Helen - Feeling a bit pretty and delicate for this challenge, so I chose to use one of the beautiful design sheets from the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles collection for my project. I made a card with a little wrap around the front using one of the beautiful Elegant nest dies, so I have 2 photos to share with you the outside and the inside. You can find this beautiful sheet right here at the store http://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/digital-decoupage-design-sheets/?sort=newest&page=4 and the Elegant nest die right here http://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/elegant-nest-set-of-3-craft-cutting-dies/

Karon - I have used the delightful Helga Hippo Collection and one of the wonderful Design sheets from the collection (Design sheet 2-06 in the collection). This design sheet is also part of a Duo Design sheet download #9 if you only want to buy just a couple to make a card :-)  I have also used the Flower Flourish Die.  This card is just 4" by 4" and is to be part of a gift set.
Pauline - I decided to use a fun design sheet from the Work & Play 11 Collection to create my card, I printed the sheet twice so that I could add a decoupage layer and added some of the super papers and a sentiment from the collection.  There are two images, two sentiments and embellishments on each design sheet so I have enough left over to create another card.
Carol - so today I have made a super sweet card featuring Design Sheet 10 from the fabulous Horace and Boo collection.

Lisa - For my make I have used a design sheet from Work & Play 5 Festive Hollybobs Collection. I've teamed the elements with some patterned papers from the same collection and made a clean & simple Z fold Christmas card.

Lots of fabulous creations to inspire you....

Our Winner and Top 3 of our Anything Goes Challenge Weeks 14/15
