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


Let's see what the team have made for us this week!

Annette (Netty's Cards):  I've created a shaped cardbase by merging some tapered rounded triangles in a circle to create a flower shape.  The image is called Want to Squeeze You, watercoloured using Distress Ink Reinkers, and the pretty papers are from the Winnie Celebrations 2 paper set.

Roberta - Hello friends! Here's another nice project for Polkadoodles, a nice Helga welcoming spring. To make it I used digital stamps: Helga Hippo - Pretty in Pink which I printed and colored with Spectrum Noir Classique alcohol markers. For the background, on the other hand, I used one of the papers from the Helga Hippo Paper collection.
                                
Myriam – Hi there! Are you also looking forward to spring? This cute little turtle can’t wait to see the sun pop out more. I have coloured the turtle with Prismacolor pencils. The colourful papers are from the Winnie Lets Hang Out bundle and the sentiment is from the collection Love Always. Spring, I love you and can't wait to see you! 
Maz - Spring is just around the corner and for my Spring themed card I used the ever so cute Bella Bear Daisy coloured using Prismacolor pencils. The background was created using Distress Trellis Stencil. More details can be found on my blog.
Maritza: Hello my crafty friends ,for this week a made XL tag with collection Helga Hippo. I have used a digital stamps Helga Hippo Blush, digital papers, folliage are same collection.

Francesca: Hello! For this challenge I created a card using Hello Hippo for you, for the background i used an image available within Helga Hippo - Design Sheet 8 Duo DOWNLOAD and then I added the sentiment available within Winnie Celebrations Kit 1 Sentiments

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

Today the team were challenged to make something using TAG this week - let's see what they came up with...!   

 Sam - This week's challenge for the Dt was 'Shape Up!' and to include a tag.  I was pretty clear when I started that this meant I was making a shaped card although when I finished I had doubts in my mind....was this supposed to be about getting fir and shaping up?  I'll be interested to see what the rest of the design team make.  Anyhow I used Winnie Mermaid Anchor's Away and the Mermazing Mermaid Quotes for my creation.  Happy Crafting.

Jane  Hello everyone!  The new COFFEE & CAKE collection is just so yummy (sorry) and I have used one of the papers, sentiment and the TEA CUP and WAFFLE CREAM FROSTING CUPCAKE images on my shaped card today. I added the ‘Drink Me’ and ‘Eat Me’ sentiments from the WINNIE IN WONDERLAND collection and decorated the cup with a not so subtle nod to a certain coffee shop chain.

Candace - For today's challenge project, the theme is Shape Up!, make anything with a tag.  I used the image Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Springtime - Healthy Eating, not only because this image is "framed" looking like a tag but also shaping up to be healthy!  The background paper I inked using the Heavenly Circles Stencil, loving the look and so many ways to use this stencil!  I used the sentiment from Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Sentiments/Quotes Bundle and made into a tag which I tied on the top of the image with a button and twine.
Madison Today's challenge was to make anything with a tag, so I decided to make a giant tag as the card. I have used kraft card to cut a tag shape and used some bright rainbow papers to mat the tag and added the gorgeous Horray Sparkle Unicorn onto the front to add to the bright and fun colours of the card. I love making rosettes so I have made one using a matching bright paper and used a fitting sentiment to finish it off. 
Parmi - Today I've created a tag to add a different shape to my cards. The card has been created using the rainbow digital paper bundles to create the tag shape cut using one of dies in my stash but this could easily be created by hand. The main image is from Gnometastic Birthday Gift digital stamp coloured with alcohol markers. I added the banner dies to add detail to the card and finished with a simple sentiment. 
LEEThis week is Tag Time as we are showing various types of tags! And the precoulored images are the perfect and simple way to make some sweet tags to add to any gift! I used the Rose Bunnyand the Want to Squeeze You digital images. I made little shakers out of the tags to create some more interest and texture and the Satin Ribbon and Pink Twine to top the tags off! Buttons and dewdrops for embellishments because I need to have embellishments! lol And then a bit of glitz with the Sparkle pen as always! I hope you have a fabulous February!!


KIM STEWARTFor todays challenge of make something with a tag: I decided to really go for it and I created 3 tags that’d be great to use with Valentines Day presents. My subject for today’s challenge are the quite adorable bunnies from the Love Always collection
I chose  Cupid Love, You Captured My Heart  as well as Together Always. I used paper bundles 1, as well as paper bundle 2  also from the Love Always collection.
For two of the tags I printed out sentiments from the Love Always Big Sentiment bundle
I added some flowers, jewels and silk ribbon that just finishes the tags off perfectly.
Make time this week for some crafty.
Marina - For this card I used an A5 card stock for base and for the background I printed the paper from  Dragon Onesie Little Dude - Little Dudes   . I colored the wonderful stamp of  Primrose, The Darling Buds  in blue and purple colours and for the sentiment I used a white tag with leaves dies cut around in purple colour.

 
LINH (LVHandcrafted) – This was a first for me – loaded pocket tags! I made treat bundles for my nieces and nephews. These were for V-day, but you can change up the papers and easily modify this for Easter, Halloween, Christmas, etc. I combined digi papers from some of my favorite bundles - Let’s Hang Out, Just Lovely – Honeypie, and Work & Play. I also used the Polkadoodles Tags die set so there are a lot of tag shapes on this project! Three tips for combining multiple papers: 1) Color shift paper from one collection to match something from another if you like the pattern but the color doesn’t fit (I did this with for the teal hearts). 2) Choose a mix of small to large print, geometric vs. abstract shapes, light vs dark, and monochrome vs. multi-color. That way each paper stands out against each other. If everything is too similar in color, shape, tone, etc., they can all blend together a little. 3) Use solid color papers if you need to visually break up two busy patterns or tone down a pattern that’s too dominant.  Check out my process video below to see how I made this project.

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

Today the team were challenged to make something using an image with BOOTS this week - let's see what they came up with...!   

Myriam – I love to work with lots of colourful layers, but this time I crafted with … white papers. I admit, it was a real challenge for me. 😊 The background paper is embossed. I have created dimension in my card by using lots of foam pads. Honeypie Out and About is coloured with Prismacolor pencils. I have added glitter to her boots so that they pop of more. Doesn't she look cute?

Roberta  -  Here is another nice project, a nice little girl sitting on a huge pair of boots ....
To make it I used two digital stamps: Sticks bones just sittin here dinosaur and Boots wellies wellingtons which I printed overlaid and colored with Spectrum Noir Classique alcohol markers. I made the matting with a red bazzil to recall the color of the boots. Do you like it?
Annette (Netty's Cards):  I've used Gnometastic Celebration Balloons on my card in bright pinks with a personalised sentiment that I've cut in a fancy font using my Silhouette.  The papers are Lily Bug Love Paper Heaven 3 and I've watercoloured the image using Distress Ink Reinkers.  The background has been inked using a Distressed Trellis stencil.
Maritza: Hello my crafty friends, for this week the DT team proposed us to make a white card, and with a bright color that would stand out, for my card I used digital papers of Winnie White Christmas collection and a digi stamp from the Winnie Winterland collection. I have painted digital stamp with colours pencils
Maz - For my 'Boots on White Card' theme, I used Boots, Wellies, Wellingtons image and inside I sat the cute little duo, Together Always from Love Always Collection. Sentiment from the same collection. I stenciled the boots using Love Hearts 1 Stencil.  All details on how I made this card can be found on my blog.
Rose...
MarzenaFor this, I coloured the cute Winnie with Copics in grey and the little hats in pink, so that they stand out. I added Glossy Accents to the shoes to make them stand out a bit more. I punched out the Winnie with the oval Craft Dies. I have the saying from the Super Sentiments Clear Stamp set stamped directly on the card.
FrancescaHello! For this challenge the theme is Valentines and I made a simple card with  Just Lovely - Honeypie.  The sentiment is a free Polkadoodles sentiment. 

Big thanks to the team for their New Inspiration this week!

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

Today the team were challenged to make something using PASTEL COLOURS this week - let's see what they came up with...!  

 Jane - A very simple card from me this week using this gorgeous little bunny from the LOVE ALWAYS collection called WANT TO SQUEZZE YOU. The paper and sentiment are also from this bundle.

Sam - This week the DT's challenge was for a pastel toned smile card as when I saw this image (Hopneypie Spring Lambs) the first thing I did was smile so thought it was perfect for my creation.  I also used the Eden paper collection #3 and for the sentiment was from the Winnie Special Moments quotes bundle.  Happy Crafting 

Candace - For today's challenge project, the theme is You Make Me Smile, use any image and use pastel colours.  I made this card using the image Something to Say - January.  With her holding a blank sign, I inserted in the sentiment from Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Sentiment/Quotes then printed out the image.  The papers are from Enfys Jetsetting and Distress Ink Papers Spots.

Madison- Today's challenge was a pastel themed smile card, so I wanted to use some simple card strips in pastel colours to make a sweet background. I also liked the idea of Winnie Skys the Limit image in pastel colours so I have used that and added in a sentiment I made from two different sentiment collections

KIM STEWART - Happy Digi Choosday! For this weeks Design Team Challenge our topic was "Make me Smile" using pastels. I chose one of the cutest little bunnies from the new release called Love Always. For my project i chose the Love you Bunches Digi  - I coloured her in with all different shades of pastel pink with my Copic markers. I used papers from paper pack bundle  Winnie Paper Pack 1 and Winnie Celebrations paper pack 2. I chose a sentiment from the wonderful sentiment pack that goes with the Love Always line. I outlined Ms. Bunny with matching pastel pink flowers witih one red flower as a pop of colour. Have a crafty week.
LEE - It's beginning to look like hearts and flowers! LOL This week we're using some pastel colors and I thought this little Honeypie Love Heart was just the thing! She is just so precious and of course the fabulous Toadally Cute paper fit the bill for a Springy look! I can't seem to create without a bit of sparkle so love my Spectrum Noir sparkle pens! And a touch of satin ribbon and some butterfly embellishments! Now I think she'll bring a smile and a hug to someone who could use one!
Marina - For this card I used an A5 card stock for base and for the background I printed the paper from Dragon Onesie Little Dude - Little Dudes . I used my markers for colouring in pal colours the  Party Little Dude - Little Dudes  stamp and cut it around leaving a white border around . For the sentiment  I used "Happy Birthday" from the Winston Deluxe FULL.
Parmi - It’s Tuesday so it means it’s time for another Digi Choosday creation.  Theme is “you make me smile” with pastel colours.  So a unicorn themed card it is.  Created using the Special Time - Sparkle Unicorn digi stamp which is coloured with alcohol ink markers in pastel colours.  I then created a background pastel rainbow drawn by hand and coloured with markers, finished with gold shimmer spray to add lots of sparkle to the design.  I added the sentiment which is cut from glossy vinyl to match the curve of the rainbow with my Cricut, but this could be stamped on the card front with an alphabet stamp.   The card was finished with some embellishments to add dimension and sparkle to the final design.
LINH  – Do you know someone who could use a smile? Sending a little happy mail is sure to put a smile on anyone’s face but Sunshine Delight Cheeky Winnie is particularly lovely. I love how she is sweetly reminding us to smile. Winnie is taking center stage on this center stepper easel card decorated with beautiful papers from Lets Hang Out. Check out my process video below if you’d like to see how I made this card.

 

Big thanks to the team for their New Inspiration this week!
