So let’s see what the design team have made for us - the team had to all use some kind of punch/die-cut on their makes….

Jane S – Hello! Oooh the new mermaids that Nikky had created are totally GORGEOUS and I have used MERIBELLE SWISHY TAIL for my card today, putting her inside the DRINK ME BOTTLE  from the WINNIE IN WONDERLAND COLLECTION . The other elements I’ve used can be found on the WINNIE STARFISH AND SANDCASTLES VIP BUNDLE that matches so perfectly with these stunning fishy ladies!!  Have a lovely crafty day! xxx
Tanya - So like Jane, I have used the Meribelle collection and the digi called Meribelle Friends which can be bought as a 3 for 2 package right HERE and the Winnie Starfish & Sandcastles collection to make my shaker card. The die cut I have used is the little seagull on top of the sentiment and the lighthouse. Hope you like it.  Full details on my blog together with another little surprise too. 
AnjieOn this card I have used a flower from the Tropical Paradise Flamingo clear stamp set. I have stamped them out 3 times, coloured them with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolour paints. I cut some fancy edge circle mats and layers using an essential Tattered Lace die set. I then layered the flowers up using 3D foam pads to give them some dimension. More details and photos on my blog.

Fiki- for this week challenge I use image Winnie from Starfish/Sandcastles collection.
I use ink tool to make blue background. I fussy cut this cute crab and put him on the card.
Jacki I had so much fun making this card I used papers and image from the Winnie Fruit Punch collection available HERE I used for you Winnie and coloured her with Prisma and Derwent colour soft pencils Then made the flowers using various dies and punches on watercolour paper which I coloured with distress inks, to finish off I added a large fussy bow
Nancy: For my card I used the wonderful Winnie Fruit Punch collection. I coloured the sweet Winnie digi called Dandelion Day with Spectrum Noir Markers. The lovely striped paper, and the sentiment, are also from the kit! I added some decorative die-cuts, and punched a border along the side of the mat behind the image.
Monica.-I´m in my Christmas in July mood (I love Christmas and any excuse is good enough to start Christmas crafting).  For my card I used Nativity, angels and snowflake doily cutting files from Picknix 2.-Gingerbread Twist (did you know that 35 beautiful cutting files are included in that collection). Papers and sentiment are also from Gingerbread Twist; flourishes cutting files are from Eden Collection (this collection includes 15 cutting files).

Julie - I am currently in Sunny Zante, before we left I made this little wall hanging for my Son using Rocco swimming with Sharks, hopefully he won't encounter one of these in the Sea.  My image is coloured with Copics.
Jane P.- For this week I used a Sizziz die I have been wanting to use for my shaped card.  I used Winnie in Wonderland CD collection design sheet to decorate.

Loriboy, did I have a ton of fun creating this card using the Winnie Starfish & Sandcastles design sheets, embellies and papers from the complete digital downloadable collection....it's so awesome that everything you need to make a beautiful card is all one one sheet - at your fingertips! xoxoxo
RominaHi There! I'm so excited to be here again! I used the Enjoy Life Digi, you can find here:
So, I've make a tag using a die. I've colored with alcohol markers and added some detail to make my tag more adorable!!!
Gail - For this weeks challenge I've made an art journal page using the light bulb from the Science bundle kit. Or if you want the full collection you'll find it in the Work and Play 12 collection, available on CD-ROM or instant download.

Great makes from the DT and I’m sure you will agree that we have some great ideas for you this week!
