So let's see what the Design Team have been making this week!

Jane – I love the versatility of digital stamps, and they are perfect for quick and easy crafting. The ‘topper’ for this design is simply one of the sentiments from BELLA CHRISTMAS BEAR BUNDLE resized to fit an A6 card. I then printed off BELLA BEAR BIG GIFT, coloured and cut her out to fit on the front. Easy-peasy.

Candace - For today's challenge project, the theme is Merry & Bright, North Pole, use colors red & white with a hint of green. I used the image Hang On - Winnie North Pole. The pattern paper is from Gnome for the Holidays. I printed the sentiment on the image, the sentiment is from Christmas Greetings, Quotes and Sentiments.

Catrin - Hi everyone, For my card today I have used 'Mistletoe Kiss' from the Theo Penguin digi stamp set. The Penguins have been coloured with Promarkers. I have die ccut the card, paper and image and added some embelishments to complete.

Samantha P - It’s time for another Digi Choosday, and for this current DT challenge featuring the North Pole, I selected the Winnie Winterland – North Pole digital stamp along with the Colouring scene 4 Christmas printable background to create this adorable scene. For this card, I kept everything one-layer except for the sentiment, coloring in reds and greens. To finish everything off I chose a sentiment from the Winnie White Christmas Sentiments set. I hope you enjoy.

Shruti - This time Digi Choosday theme was "Merry & Bright" with Red & White Colour pallette with a hint of green. So I've made a card using Which Way - Theo Penguin🐧
Coloured the background in light blue tones then layered the beautiful cut out of theo penguins. For background I've used papers from DLPD9439 Set 1 Christmas printable digital paperTied a Ribbon, dusted with glitter and added some Snowflake ❄️ Sequins.
Hope you like it 💗 Follow @minal_magic to watch the reel of this card. Crafty Hugsx

MartineThis time I made  a frosted card...because it's called Octavia Frosted Winter Bear HugsWould you love to hug this bear?? Well, if he was friendly i would... lol. I colored it as usual with my Distress inks. Those gorgeous snowflakes are from my own stash. I added some text from Gingerbread HollySee you next time!

Jennifer - Hello crafty friend, I hope you've been having fun, creating for the upcoming holidays! For this weeks project, I made this cute Carol singing moose into a Christmas card.
I started by bringing 'Carol singing-Elvis Wesley moose' into procreate, along with a "Merry Christmas" sentiment from 'gingerbread holly greetings', and 'Christmas coloring scene 4'. All of the digital images from Polkadoodles are so easy to use together because they're designed with, what's called a "clear background". So they literally layer together as easy as import, drag, and drop!
After getting my layout how I liked it, printed it out with a Lazer printer. Printing with toner, instead of regular ink, allows me to add a Beautiful shine with some transfer foil and a laminator. I just covered the "Merry Christmas" with gold foil and fed it through my laminator.
To complete the background, I lightly ink blended a mix of 'spun sugar' and 'shaded lilac' distress ink to give some dimension to the snow. For the sky, I used 'salvaged patina', 'salty ocean', and 'prize ribbon' to create a center highlight around the sentiment.
For Mr.Moose, and all of the trees, I colored them in with alcohol markers. But it still needed something... so I grabbed an embossing pen, and went over all of the trees, everywhere I thought the snow would stick, and added some clear embossing ink. I dusted on some 'puff white' embossing powder, which actually puffs up when you heat it! Which gives a very interesting texture to snow.
After that, I added some highlights to all of the snowy highpoints with a stardust glitter pen. I also added a tiny bit more glitter, with an 'aqua shimmer pen', to the very top of each snow drift.
I cut down my finished panel to 3¾"x5", and layered some red glitter paper behind it, leaving about ½cm border. I added one more mat, cut to 4¼"x5½, from the 'gingerbread holly' printable paper pack, to help tie together all of the colors I used on the images.
I really enjoyed making this card with Polkadoodles printable downloads! The possibilities are endless, with the ability to resize, mirror, crop and edit, and more! Printable downloads are a great thing to have in your crafty arsenal.
Thank you, so much, for going on this crafty journey with me today. Have a fun and creative day ❤️ -Jennifer S - IG: @pueen_queen

Kim S - Happy Digi Chooseday! Here we are hopefully all full on in our Christmas card creating. For our Design Team project this week our theme was Merry and Bright + the North Pole with a colour scheme of Red and White and a touch of green. Which suits me just fine since I'm not much of a 'green' person. I created a pop up box card that fits perfectly into a 6.25" X 6.25" envelope when it is folded down flat.
My choice for images all came from the new Bella Bear Christmas-y download set. For once, everything i used came from the same set. Images, decorative papers and even sentiments.
I added snowdrifts to simulate the idea of being at the north pole. I covered up the "Santa Stops Here" that was written on the sign post beside Bella whose sitting on a fence and die cut out North Pole to replace it with. Happy Christmas card creating!

The team have been really busy again this week - thankyou Team and big welcome to our new ladies too!
