So let's see what the Design Team have been making this week...we asked them to show some inspiration for food and drink themes...

We are thrilled to introduce Betsy to our team of talented crafters this week - we love her work and hope you'll follow her blog and social media too for some GORGEOUS projects she's going to be sharing with us all!

Betsy - Hello everyone! Bringing a little sparkly goodness in the middle of winter! I've used the Butterfly Flower Pots to create this card. I printed it on thin (90lb) watercolor paper. I colored the images with Copic markers and then highlighted the lines within the imageswith glitter watercolor paint. I added little mirror gems here and there and diecut the panel with a die from my stash. I mounted
the colored panel onto periwinkle glitter stock and then adhered to a white A2 size top folding note card. A perfect touch of sparkle for these cold gray days of February!
Copic colors:

  • YG11, YG63, YG23, YG41, YG17, G02, G14,G94, W1, W3, W5, Y00, Y02, Y15, Y17, Y21, YR04,YR23, E15, E08, BV000, BV02, BV13, RV52,
  • RV55, RV66, RV19

Jane –This gorgeous duo is called TWO HEARTS, from the TONS OF LOVE ELEPHANT COLLECTION, and they are sat amongst the blooms of the PRETTY FLOWER WREATH DIGI DEAL dreaming of Spring. I coloured everything in pencil and added the ‘Happy Anniversary’ from the LOVE BIRDS GREETINGS BUNDLE.

Candace - For today's challenge project, the theme is Spring Flowers, use grey, blue, lilac and green colors. I used the printable card kit, Flower Meadow, which comes with 5 different pattern papers, 4 sentiments and black & white and colored flower image. Was really quick to make this cute card!

KIM STEWART - Happy Digi Choosday! Spring flowers is our theme this week. I chose the Perfect Peony digi for my Design Team project. I coloured two versions of the digi; one just a smidge smaller than the other so i could pop up the flower to give the image some depth. I coloured the digis with my Copic markers, and added some glitter glue for sparkle. My paper selections come from Wanda Set 3  and also Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles paper pack 10 - Have a crafty week!


Jennifer - Hi again crafty friend! For this weeks project, I've made a floral card that could be used for many occasions. I started by printing one of the flower clusters from Polkadoodles "Alcea Hollyhock Flowers" digital bundle. One great thing about digital stamps, is the fact that you can print in any size. I chose to make my image about 3½x5", and quickly cut it out with my cricut, using the 'print then cut' feature. 

I colored in my image using alcohol markers. I used a range of violet shades to give the flowers lots of depth, and stuck with traditional greens for the buds and foliage. I also added some clear and yellow starburst glitter pens to the flower centers, to add some shimmer and shine.

Now I needed something to add my focal point to... I printed a beautiful blue pattern paper that was included in the "Alcea Hollyhock Flowers" bundle, but I needed something to bring focus back to the flowers. So i cut an oval and a scalloped frame out of white cardstock to layer everything.
I still needed a sentiment, so I used my cricut again, to write "today is special because YOU are in it". Which is a sentiment from the "Gnome for Spring" digital sentiments.
Now I can assemble everything. I decided on a light Grey A2 cardbase to help the scalloped frame pop, and it matches the sentiment. I used a tape runner to adhere down the scalloped frame, then the blue pattern paper, and then the oval. A bit of liquid glue attached the alcea image, and I popped up the sentiment with some tiny foam dots. I finished it off with a few iridescent flatback pearls to add a little extra something, and help fill any empty space.
This card isn't in my usual "cutesy" style, but I'm really happy with how it came out. I think the sentiment makes this card good for birthdays, valentines, mothers day, just because, and more. It's a great one for the stash... I hope you like it as much as I do. And I hope you get to have some crafty fun today. Have a creative day! ♥️Jennifer S. @pueen_queen

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 asked them to show some inspiration for food and drink themes...

Irre - Hello everyone. Today I'm sharing a Valentine’s Day card created with the digital stamp Gnome much love. I colored the stamp with Copic alcohol markers and cut the stamp out. For the background, I stamped it and colored it in with Distress ink. I also ripped the edges of the paper. I decorated the card with die-cut out flowers and a heart swirl. I also added a sentiment from Love always sentiment set.My social links: https://www.facebook.com/scrapbyirre, Instagram: @scrapbyirre

CHRISTIN My card for today is very clean and simple to draw the focus on this beautiful cupcake. For the background I used a die for making a quilt design. The cupcake I colored with alcohol markers in pastel colors.

Maritza -

Wendy - Hello everyone I hope you are having a great week - have you made your valentines cards yet ? Here's an idea for a sweet card using one of the cute Noodle Panda digital stamps, Ice Cream Sundae, coloured with my Promarkers but you could easily use one of the pre-coloured images. I added a small strip of digital paper from the collection from set 2 before printing out my image and colouring. The sentiment is from the Love Always Collection, paper set2 Happy Valentines everyone xxx

Monika - Hello all amazing crafters, it's Monika with a super sweet Valentine's card. For my Sweet Treat I used Cherry Cream Cupcake digi stamp that I absolutely love and you can use it for a lot of different occasions. For the backgrounds I chose two gorgeous design papers from Winnie Celebrations 1 collection and they are just perfect for Valentine's Day, the sentiment comes from Love Birds Greetings. I hope you will have fun creating your Valentine's Card using these collections. https://www.instagram.com/quillinglady/ https://www.youtube.com/craftingwithquillinglady



Nat Martin - This time I made a slim card and for this I selected 3 digital stamps - Waffle Cream Cupcake, Coffee and Cake Digital Papers and the Wings of love greetings sentiments - hope you like it!

So let's see what the Design Team have been making this week...we asked them to show some inspiration for Purple and lilac colours...


Candace - For today's challenge project, the theme is February Birthday - Amethyst, use puurple and diamond shape. I created this February Birthday card using the image Pisces Digital Stamp and Zodiac Paper Pack. I used a diamond shape die cut to cut out the pattern papers and purple cardstock.

Jane – My diamond shaped card is to celebrate my mum’s birthday, and as her birth stone is amethyst our DT theme this week was perfect. I have watercoloured the beautiful FLOWER MEADOW digi deal and added the ‘Mum’ from the WINNIE SUGAR SPRINKLES QUOTES KIT and the ‘Birthday Wishes’ from the WANDA SENTIMENT BUNDLE.

KIM STEWART -For our Design Team Project this week it was using my Favourite colour purple. Yippee. I bet you think I'm going to use Winnie since i love her so much eh? HA! fooled you, not this time. I chose Serenity Fairy Earthstar for my card front. I love her wispy hair and dress. I printed her out quite big so she fills up most of the card, which i typically do 6" X 6". I added some diamond AB jewels to the card front, and Diamond glitter glue to make her wings sparkle. A simple little birthday wishes tag that hides behind the image. My paper selections come from the Lilac Haze set. They fit perfectly with my purple/lilac fairy.

Martine Bruinings - A Darling Bud.... that is what i used this time. There are several of this gorgeous lady's. All with differend flowers.This is Marigold . I added some gorgeous flowers to it ... all in purple. Hope you like it!

Jennifer - Hello again crafty friend! I hope the new year has been good for you so far. For my first project of the year, I made an Amethyst inspired birthday card with Polkadoodles, "FreddyFox" printable image.This was a very easy card to put together. I was able to print the "Freddy Fox" image and color him with alcohol markers to go with the amethyst aesthetic I was going for. I really love how he came out! After Freddy was finished, I needed a background panel to put him on. So I used my cricut to design and cut an argyle inspired stencil. I used design space to create the 1st stencil layer, which is just a 6x6in. panel, with a bunch of diamonds in a checkerboard pattern. Then I designed the 2nd stencil layer by making another 6x6 panel with diagonal stripes. After cutting both stencils, and Freddy, I ink blended the argyle pattern on 80lb white cardstock. I used distress inks 'shaded lilac' & 'wilted violet' for the diamonds, and 'twisted citron' & 'mowed lawn for the strips. After cutting out the sentiment, it was time to assemble everything. I trimmed the argyle panel down to 4x5¼, and matted it onto an A2 panel of light purple cardstock. Then I popped Freddy up with some foam tape and stuck him onto the card. I ended up putting the sentiment onto a shadow layer, that was cut from the same light purple cardstock. I popped up the sentiment with more foam tape, and the card is finished! I really enjoy making projects with Polkadoodles digital stamps. I hope I've inspired you to try something new this year! Have a creative day! Jennifer S @pueen_queen

Samantha Pfrimmer - It’s time for another Digi Chooseday Challenge and the design team was asked to use the color purple with a diamond shape. For my make, I started with the Watercolour Flower Stem digi . This flower was so lovely I wanted it to be the main feature of my card design. I also selected a pattern paper from the Noodle Panda Set 2 digital paper collection, opting for an indigo paper with a subtle floral diamond design. Once I started Copic-coloring my main image I thought it would be nice to add a little paper piecing detail. I ran my printed pattern paper back through the printer with the flower and shaded a few petals in gray. I next fussy cut my petals and glued them to my floral image that I had colored. I then matted the completed image also using the same pattern paper and finished with a sentiment selected from the Birthday Sentiments and Greetingsdigital stamp set. The final touch, a few diamond shaped embellishments.


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!

CHRISTIN The next special day this year is Valentines Day. I took the Love You bunches and colored it with my alcohol markers. For the background a used a stencil, some Distress Oxide, the PhotoFrame and some enamel dots. So that it doesn’t get too crowded on the card I made a slimline card.

Wendy - Hello everyone I hope you are all well - Do you make Valentine's Cards or even Galantine's card? This week the team was asked to create a Valentine's card using and image from the Lucy Monkman Collection or Gil Rabbit collection.


Monika - I chose this gorgeous Stylish Dog by Lucy Monkman - its just the sort of card my Hubby loves, simple and stylish and they come as black and white or pre-coloured. I've used a paper and sentiment from the Lily Bug Ladybird collection for my simple and stylish Valentine's Day card....Have a lovely week xx Monika - Hi all crafters, it's Monika. It is that time of the year when we start to get ready for the loveliest day of the year! Today, I'm sharing with you a Pillar Double Bridge Card I created with no cutting dies. All you need is the most adorable digi stamp 'Love you Bunches' and some absolutely gorgeous design papers from 'Coffee Tea and Cake' and 'Winnie Celebrations 1' bundles. These two collections are just perfect for St.Valentine's Day so you can easily mix and match them. I also used a sentiment from the 'Love Birds Greetings Valentine' bundle which has perfect sentiments for this special occasion.
Happy crafting!
