So let's get to today's challenge...

Our fabulous Design Team are showing you some ideas for a slimline card this week - we hope you can all get some great inspiration here!

 Jane  I have a tall, shaped card for the challenge today using pre-coloured images, paper and sentiment from the WINNIE STARFISH & SANDCASTLES download. I took all the images into Word, resized and overlapped them and then adhered to a card blank and cut it out.  Simple really!

Candace - For today's challenge project, the theme is slimline card, use any product and make a slimline card. I used Winnie Starfish/Sandcastles Paper for the background of my slimline card.  I used the image Winnie Mermaid, copic colored her up and pop dotted to the center. The sentiment is from Winnie Mermaid Quotes.

Madison - For the slimline card challenge today I have used the cute Winnie celebration stamp. She is flying up the card which has been backed with the butterfly papers from the Winnie Fruit Papers. I have added the Good Luck sentiment to make is a lovely inspirational card. 

Sam - For my Slimline card  I wanted to use some of those cute images from the Too Cute range...there were sooo many to choose from so I went with the ones that could fly: Too Cute Owl Love and Too Cute Heart Basket.  I found the sentiment in the Winnie Celebrations Sentiments 3 and the paper in the Horace & Boo Paper Heaven 3 pack.  Happy Crafting!
LEE...Happy Summer! I know I'm enjoying the beautiful weather and rainy afternoons on my mountain! So I thought a fun, colorful card was a perfect fit!  I made a slimline card - 3.5" x 7" - and used the absolutely adorable Spring Showers and this fabulous Bright and Beautiful paper! The Poseydoodles Basic Oval dies and Poseydoodles Basic Tag dies were such a perfect fit. Add a touch of bling with the Lilac Doodle Dewdrops! I hope you all have a creative week!

KIM STEWART

LEE...Happy ChoosDay everyone!! I have a cheery rainbowy card today! This sweet little Bella Bear Bouquet wanted to share a smile and some rainbow vibes! She's perfect along with the Rainbow Papers downloadable bundle and downloadable Winnie Sunshine Embellishments! The little Birdie wooden button and Rainbow/Unicorn themed button just topped off the cuteness!  I hope you get some crafty time and play along with us this week!

LAURA...I thought it would be fun to give my slimline card a hand drawn postcard feel.  The background was made using papers from Winnie Starfish/Sandcastles papers 10.  I positioned the Winnie Ice-cream Camera/Selfie digi stamp so that Winnie could take a photo of her and her friend Relaxing on her Sunlounger.  The scene was built using a sentiment and lots of Embellie stamps from the VIP XXL Winnie Starfish/Sandcastles bundle.  Once my colouring was complete, I traced over the whole image with a fine liner to add the sketchy feel. 

KIMHappy almost to the weekend!  For today's challenge of "use an image with flowers" I chose to make a Slimline card(my first one) using the wonderful and ever so sweet Winnie from the Celebrations line - such a cutie to colour up with my Copics. I paired Winnie with digi papers from https://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/winnie-celebrations-3-papers-2-digital-download/as well as https://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/winnie-celebrations-3-papers-1-digital-download/ . As a final touch i added little aurora borealis crystals around Winnie since she always shines bright.

Wow - incredible projects this week!

So let's get to today's challenge...

Our fabulous Design Team are showing you some ideas for a FAMILY theme this week - we hope you can all get some great inspiration here!...

LEIGH -  I found these amazing whales hiding in the Winnie Starfish & Sandcastles collection - you really need to look around the store and in the bundles as there are literally 100's & 100's of extras hiding away in all the value bundles! I wanted to use this image with a twist so I've combined all 3 to make a cute whale family!


LEIGH -  I also found this cute image and I couldn't resist using this to create a Thank You card I needed to make. This image is called Too Cute Turtle Love, again I combined two images together...


ROBERTA - This is a tag I made for my sister's birthday! To make it I used the Lavender digital stamp, printed it on cardboard suitable for use with alcohol markers, and then I colored it in. I punched the shape of a tag on both white card and kraft card; I uncorked the shape on kraft cardboard and glued it onto the white one. To create the background, I used Distress Oxides in shades: Seedless Preserves, Fossilized Amber, Tea Dye and Vintage Photo. Then I stamped the tag, again with Oxides, using the stamps of the Textures Galore Stamp Set 11 plank and then I stamped and embossed the Queen of Hearts stamp. Finally, with a stencil and white chalk, I made dots here and there.


ANITA – We were challenged to create a card for a family member using kraft paper in the project. This card is for my daughter who is competing in a Food Network Burger Challenge to come up with a new recipe. This Burger Digital Stamp was just perfect! I printed the image on Kraft paper and colored in with pencils. The sentiment on the flag is from Winnie Celebrations #2 Sentiment Set and the lovely green starred paper is from Opera Theme Paper Craft Download.  Win or lose, I know my daughter will be great!


Kim Stewart - I created my project this week using wonderfully cute Darling Buds Primrose. I chose 3 papers from the equally adorable Winnie Let's Hang Out collection.

MARZENA - For the family theme I made a birthday card for my mother-in-law. Since my mother-in-law's birthday is coming up soon anyway, I made her a birthday card with the cute Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Digital Download. I used the colours pink to match the papers from the same collection.
I punched out the design paper in the background with theses die punchesThe flowers are from the set Picknix 1. In The Garden Download Bundle I cut out with the plotter and have attached them to the card at a slight angle. The word Happy Birthday I also cut the word to size with the plotter from the Sentiments Winnie Celebrations 1. I created the word mother-in-law from the set Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Sentiments with the die punch from the set Posydoodles DiesI added the pearls to the card with Nuvo Drops Vintage Rose.


MARZENA - I have also made a card for my mother with which I would like to thank her just like that. Here, too, I coloured the sweet Winnie in the same colours as the card for my mother-in-law, using Copics. The words Thank You from this sentimentand Mum from the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Sentiment set. I printed them directly onto the white paper and cut them out as a square. The design paper is from the set: Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Paper Heaven. I kept the background in green and stamped it with the stamp from this stamp set. I also stamped the hearts in pale pink.



AnnetteI'm sharing my Father's Day card featuring Boo the kitty (which I've mirrored, so he's facing to the right) and some softly spotty papers from Winnie Sugar Sprinkles 2 collection. My image is water-coloured using Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers.


Maritza - Hello my crafty friends ... for this week, our theme is: use Kraft. I made a mini gift bag for a family member and I have used a digital stamp that I printed on kraft paper and I have painted it with colored pencils. The digi stamp I used is Let's Go Winnie. I have embellished this bag with remnants of digital papers from various collections and I have made a fake stitch.


Maz - For my 'Kraft Card' project, everything is from the beautiful  Rose Budd Download Collection. I subtly coloured Miss Charlotte using Copics and attached a parasol to her. Adding a little lace border anglais to the edges, to give it that shabby feel. 'To My Wife' sentiment is from Everlasting Sentiments Stamp Set.

Myriam - I have created a card for my aunt who will turn 60 in August. I positioned a picture of her into a frame from the Picknix Craft Bundle. The number ‘60’ is added twice to the digital stamp Gnometastic Birthday Surprise by using Microsoft Word. Just like I have added a Winnie Celebrations 3 birthday sentiment to the frame too.

Further, I have used embellishments from 3 different collections (which are in sale, check out the clearance section in the Polkadoodles shop!): cake is from Picknix Craft Bundle, the presents, balloon, champagne glasses & birds are from the Winston Deluxe Collection & the single white flower is from the Rose Budd Craft Collection. Background paper is from Winnie Sunshine Delights and for the sides I’ve used these Plain Distress Ink Papers


Rose - Hello friends! How are you? For today's challenge I have created a Birthday card and a slim candle box using the digital image Bella Bear Daisy  together with the digital designer papers Winnie Celebrations 3 & Lou the Teacher  incorporated with beautiful sentiment from Winnie Sugar Sunshine for the card. I have used different set of designer papers for candle box Summer Breeze Papers. I coloured the image with my favourite medium Copic Markers. 



LOVELY projects this week!

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

So let's get to today's challenge...

The theme for this week is FRIENDSHIP! We've asked the team to create something cute and colourful that they would give to a friend. Let's see what they have come up with...


LAURA - I had great fun colouring the beautiful Meribelle Swishy Tail digi stamp and surrounding her with lots of fishy friends! My collage began with a panel from Winnie Starfish / Sandcastles Design Sheet 11 which I enlarged to make a 6x6 card. I filled the sea with super cute Creatures and Embelli shells from the Winnie Starfish / Sandcastles range, and built up the scene with lots of colouring, shine and sparkles! The sweet sentiment is from the Say It All bundle from the Eden collection. Meribelle Mermaid Swishy TailVIPXXL EDITION Winnie Starfish/SandcastlesWinnie Starfish/Sandcastles Design Sheet 11Eden Collection - Say It All Digital Craft Download Bundle


LEE - Hi from me and happy summertime! Summer friends are so fun and this adorable Winnie Mermazing has a best friend! She is so Thankful and the playful Mermazing Mermaid paper just makes me smile! I hope you find some fun inspiration and play along with us!

 Jane - Today I have used one of the super sweet HONEY PIE images from the new JUST LOVELY collection and this is STICK WITH ME. The gorgeously, colourful paper is from the TOADALLY CUTE pad and I have used the FLOWER FLOURISH die set. The sentiment is from WINNIE SUNSHINE DELIGHTS.

Candace - For today's challenge project, the theme is friendship, use any products and make something for friends. I started out with a box cut, then added pattern paper from Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Paper 4 Bundle, cut out the 2 sentiments from Lily Bug Love Quotes and Toad-ally Cute. I thought the image Sunshine Delight Cheeky would be perfect to color up and add to the front of the box. I placed 3 mini boxes of candies inside box and tied with ribbon. Sweet treat for any friend!!


Madison - I love sending cards to friends, so when todays challenge was friend themed it was perfect. I have used the delightful Winnie image as the focal point of this card and paired her with some lovely papers. I have then added a cute but so true sentiment and a few gems. Perfect to send out to a shopping friend. 


Sam - My card for my friend I actually made while crafting with her. We often get together and make a day of it! I have used my favourite Winnie of all time - Missed You Winnie from the Let's Hang Out Collection. I have also used the Horace and Boo Paper Heaven 3 and a beautiful sentiment called True Friend. Happy Crafting.



LOVELY projects this week!
