So let's see what the Design Team have been making this week...we hope you're inspired!... 


Julie Barnes - Here is a card I have made using one stamp set called Great Day Florals PD7148. Such a lovely set and so versatile. The aim was not to use any pinks - that is hard! I started by ink blending a 6 x 6 card base and stamped several of the flowers and elements onto the card and shaded some. I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the larger flower head and toadstool and added to the front of the card to give it some depth. I then used papers fromVintage Candy paper pack PD8004 for the inside of the card, decorated the insert and envelope to math. I used my Faber Castell pencils for this make using the following colours:
  • Cobalt Turquoise
  • Light Cobalt Turquoise
  • Emerald Green
  • Light Green
  • Light Cadmium Yellow
  • Light Yellow
  • Orange Glaze
  • Cadmium Orange

CHRISTIN B - I have a flowering card for you today. I love the darling buds - didn't I already say that several times?:) The next one in my collection is the Crocus darling Bud, which you can buy precoloured or for coloring by yourself. This one I colored with my alcohol markers and used a wonderful jade green. For the background I used a stencil and a yellow Distress Oxide. The advantage of the colors is their opacity. That's why it looks so beautiful on the green cardstock.

Wendy - Hello and happy Digi Choosday everyone ! Today I'm here with a vibrant floral easel card that I've made using the pretty Butterfly Flowerpots digi deal, its such a perfect set and included a pre-coloured version if you don't like to colour or you just need a quick card. I've included one of the papers from the recently relaunched Helga Hippo collection along with a sentiment from the very sweet Lily Bug collection. A really easy and quick card to create and I hope you like it! Happy Crafting !

Maritza: Hello my crafty friends, for this week our DT theme is flowers and not using pink, one of my favorite colors is pink, but today I have worked with the color palette assigned for this week, the digital image is Bloom 5 Tulip Peonias Flowers, I painted with colours pencils, papers are digital of collection Watercolor Flower Stem. Happy crafting!

Maz - For today's 'Flowers' theme, and not to use pink, I created a collection of floral projects using the NEW Botanical Bliss Collection using green and purple. For my large gate-fold card with belly-band and the tag, I used Radiant Roses. The stepper card was created using Hydrangea Ribbon All coloured using Distress Oxides and Zig Clean Color pens. More details can be found on my blog

Huge thanks to the design team for all their inspiration today - we hope we've given you lots of ideas to use in your own cards - remember! We LOVE you to copy the ideas we show you, it's what we're here for!

So let's see what the Design Team have been making this week...we hope you're inspired!... 


KIM STEWART - Happy Digi Choosday, What’s on your craft desk this week? We’d love to see what you’ve been working on. Our challenge theme this week was to use either vellum or acetate somewhere in our project. I chose vellum this time. I started with diecutting 3 circles which I ink blended with my Distress Oxide inks. I used Fossilized Amber, Ripe Persimmon and Candied Apple & Squeezed lemonade, Twisted Citron plus Cracked Pistachio and finally Kitsch flamingo, Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers for my 3 combinations. I covered each ink blended circle with a piece of die cut vellum which gives the ink a more muted look. Noodle the Panda is the star of my card this time. All 3 images come from Noodle Panda Bear set 3. My paper choice comes a halloween set called Gnome Halloween Trick or Treat.


Betsy - Hello everyone, this week I've colored this lovely daffodil flower in bright yellows, I needed to cheer someone up and this is just the job. Check out the Blooms 2 Daffodil Flower bundle with this printable included, it's such great value!


Martine - Hello, this week I've made a cute card with Barista Coffee/ Cake printable stamp . We had to use acetate or vellum for this one, I used acetate and I glued her on it and also glued a little fence on it. At the side I used a sentiment from Lily Ladybug Ladybird themed Messages. Then i used some background papers, called Coffee Tea and Cake Paper patterns. As always I colored with my distress inks.

Åsa -Hi crafty friends! We at the designteam were asked to use acetate or vellum this time. I made a non-typical Åsa card. Most of my cards have a white background but I went for black this time and with a piece of vellum. I´ve used Lilac Haze and a sentiment from Birthday Sentiments and greetings. I coloured my flower with copics.


Candace - For today's challenge project, the theme is use acetate or vellum and make anything. I used vellum that I put over top of the polka dot pattern paper from Lily Bug Ladybird. I used the image Gardening Lily Ladybug which I copic colored and pop dotted ontop of the vellum paper. I also glued the sentiment, which is from Everyday Greetings and Quotes - Winnie Daisy Fairy.


Jane – This gorgeous image is called NATURES BEAUTY and she is one of the fabulous DIGI DEALS. I created some flowers using acetate for this card, I love the transparency you can get.


Huge thanks to the design team for all their inspiration today - we hope we've given you lots of ideas to use in your own cards - remember! We LOVE you to copy the ideas we show you, it's what we're here for!

We are thrilled to welcome Julie to the team this week - we know you will love seeing her inspiration & we're excited to extend a huge welcome to this creative lady! Make sure you follow her on here blog and socials!



Julie Barnes @the_stamping_heffalump - Here is a card I made for our May challenge with the theme Ocean. I used the gorgeous mermaid stamp Ula from the Ula Swishy Tail set PD7711 and stamped her onto some kraft card. I made up a round easel card and added some paper for the background from the paper pack Mermazing Ocean PD7952. I coloured her up with Prismacolour pencils using the following colours: PC1017 - PC1092 - PC939 - PC927 - PC928 - PC 948 - PC942 - PC1012 - PC914 - PC1072 - PC1070 - PC1068 - PC905 - PC992 - PC1104 - PC1001 - PC1033 - PC1014 - PC1018 &
PC948
I heat embossed the sentiment that comes as part of the stamp set, fussy cut it out and mounted it on some foam pads and then added to it to hold open the easel card. I then added some sparkle; cause mermaids have to have sparkle!

CHRISTIN B - Hello! Today I made an easel card in shape of an oval with this beautiful Coral Mermaid behind the rocks. I colored her with my alcohol markers and cut it out with an oval to put it on my card. The sentiment from the set Coral Mermaid quotes I made inside the card with dimensional pads for making the easel effect.

Maritza:Hello my Crafty Friends, for my project this week I made a round card, the image I used is Meribelle Mermaid Seahorse, the papers are digital of Winnie Sugar Sprinkle Paper Heaven 2 collection. I painted this image digital with colours pencils. Embellishments are Winnie Starfish/Sandlecastle. Happy Crafting!

Wendy - Hello everyone Happy Digi Choosday! Have you been taking part in the MerMay events across social media - there's just a few more days to go so still time to join in - why not have a look at the Coral Mermaid Collection. For my project today I've created a 5" x 7" picture using one of the papers from the collection and the gorgeous Coral Mermaid on Rocks, coloured with Promarkers. I've added lots of lovely sparkle to her tail which I wish you could see as its magical. Have a fabulous day. Love and crafty hugs Wendy x

Åsa -Hi crafty friends! We were asked to create something with Best friends theme and I totally LOVE this imageWinnie Mermaid Mermazing. I think it fits perfect for the Best friends theme.

For our challenge project this week the theme is 'Friends forever' I seem to continue to gravitate towards the Darling Buds Flower Girls. They are just so perfect for many different occasions. I chose the Snowdrop Girl and the Tulip Girl this time. I picked A6 size cards, did a bit of layering with my decoravtive papers which are from Winnie Celebrations 3 pack 2, Winnie Fruit 2 Winnie Sunshine Delights pack 2 And finally a few mulberry flowers to finish off my beautiful 'Forever Friend' cards.

Wendy - Hello everyone and a happy Digi Choosday - Today we are making easel cards for a May birthday which if you didn't know has Emerald as its birthstone. I've made a simple twisted easel using some gorgeous leafy papers and a sentiment from the Noodle Panda collection. I decided to use the gorgeous Best Friends digital stamp from the Octavia collection and coloured her with promarkers - just look at her emerald green hair isn't it fabulous!
Have a wonderful week and don't forget to join in with the challenge, love and crafty hugs x

Maz - for my May Birthday 'Easel Card' adding 'green' I used the beautiful Flower Fairy Winnie Daisy from the NEW Winnie Daisy 2 Collection, coloured using Copics. I copied and enlarged the flower several times, to add my decoration. Backing paper is from the same collection. More details can be found on my blog



Ana - Here I used the cute Happy Cactii collection to create a bright and colourful card for anyone...


Maritza : Hello my Crafty friends, for my birthday projects, I made an Easel card. The proposed color palette is Green. I have used the digital image, Winnie Hang Onto Your Hat, the digital papers are Theo Penguins Paper bundle 3 . I painted this image with colored pencils. Embellishments are Lavender Tea collections. Happy crafting!

Renske - Hello Crafty Friends! As a design team, we were challenged to make a card for a boy or a man. I used the digital stamp Basketball - Little Dude. With this digital stamp, you also get three pattern papers and texts. With this package, I was able to make this card. I coloured my digital stamp with alcohol markers and cut it out with a rectangle die. I edited the edges a bit with distress ink. For the layers on the back, I used two of the digital patterns. I used the text "have a slam dunk of a day" and cut it into pieces to move it around the card. To give the card something extra, I die-cut some stars. I hope this has inspired you again. Happy Crafting.
My Instagram: @renske.wishes.you

Irre - Hello everyone! This week I used this cute Winnie Daisy image on my journal pages - I hope you like her!
