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

Ariadna - Hello crafty friends!! I'm happy to show you my new card for the lovely Polkadoodles!. This card is full of love with the beautiful "Lily bug big heart" digital stamp. For coloring I used my favorite color pencils, and for the background a little bit of ink with and I added some texture to the cardstock with some waving. Hope you like it!


Rachael - Have you seen this super cute owl from our latest Wings of Love release? Although I made him into a love card, he is perfect for any occasion. I added a bit of simple paper weaving using leftover off cuts of card - this is a great way to use up scraps!


Merja - On this cute little valentine's day tag I used Rose Bunny image and coloured it with alcohol markers. The background I did with paper weaving technique - I used papers from Toadally Cute paper pack and after weaving I cut it with Posydoodles Circles die. The text is stamped with Cutie Pie stamps.

Catrin - Hi! todays card is 'Spring Flowers'. and I have used the stamp set 'Funky Rosy Posy' and 'Funck Borders' Clear stamp Set. Stmped with Momento Ink and coloured with Distress inks and fussy Cut to create a garden scene. The backing paper was created with Distress ink and the 'Polka Dots Mech Craft Stencil...

Martine - Hello everyone, Martine here with a springful card. Well... i would LOVE that it was spring! I don't like this weather at all ! I've made a easel card for you this time. I put some shiny papers on it and i used Surprise gifts for it...isn't she cute? Then i put some roll-up flowers on it and some little butterfly's. The card itself stucks behind a tiny envelop, with a cute little message in it. Well... see you next time.
Wendy L - Using Microsoft Word, I printed the Together Always - Love Always printable image at 75% transparency to give the look of no-line coloring. I added a circle to create a moon around the bunnies faces to highlight them and positioned a sentiment from the "Love Always printable Sentiments big bundle in the moon. I colored everything with Copic Markers. If you're on Insta I'd love to follow you so tag me and follow me on Instagram here!

Julie - Hi everyone, I'm sharing my DT project for the Valentine's Challenge. For this card I've used the cute Too Cute Kitty Love digital stamp. Part of this challenge is to also use paper weaving in some way. For this I've used the Love Always Printable Papers 1 bundle cut into 1/4 inch strips and woven into a pattern as shown on the finished card. For the sentiment I've used the "Be My Valentine" from the Love Always Printable Sentiments bundle. I’ve added some white gel pen, and some flat sequins to finish off the card. I hope that my card inspires you to join in the challenge this month. I can’t wait to see what you all create!

Kim Stewart - For my Challenge project I created a slimline card. I had to get some Winnie time in and chose Winnie Daisy Dance Fairy for my card. I used scraps i had saved from other projects for my decorative paper selections. I added mulberry flowers in matching purple and lilac colours. Added glitter to her wings and all the flower centres. My sentiment comes from Winnie Daisy Fairy Sentiment bundle - Have a crafty Week!

Shruti - I've designed this fun fold card for the Spring Flowers theme using the color palette 🎨
I coloured this cute Gnome digistamp in pastel tones using brush pens, added some rhinestones for flowers and added cute little flowers on Gnome's cap just to go with the theme 😍 and the backing papers are from the same gnome collection here. Hope you all will like it.

Super fun projects from the team this week - thanks so much for all your inspiration ladies!

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

--------------------------------

Monika - Hi all crafters - I want to share with you my first project. I created a winter wedding card using a 'Bride & Groom' digi stamp which is so much fun to work with. This digi stamp is perfect to colour in using a variety of media; for my project I used alcohol markers and metallic watercolour paints to add some sparkle. For the background I used a beautiful 'Winnie Wonderland Paper Heaven 5' design paper and a sentiment from 'Barista Coffee/Cake Bundle'. To embellish the project, I used a snowflake punch. Happy crafting! 


Shruti
 - Hello! I"m excited to be here with my first project! I've made card for Pancake Day. 
I love to bake Cake 🎂 and specially cupcakes 🧁 for my sweetheart daughter and always get fascinated by cake designs and frosting 😍. She has only chosen this cupcake with heart shaped waffle 🧇.Keeping that in mind I thought of designing this card with multiple layers, doilies, ribbons 🎀  etc. To make this I've used the Waffle Cream Cupcake digital stamp, printable papers from the Coffee and Cake collection & Sentiments too.

Catrin - My Card inspiration today is using the image 'Pancake Heaven - Miss Sugarpops' coloured with Promarkers. I have used several layers of backing paper from Horace & Boo Paper Heaven pack 3, adding lace and some stamped and die cut Baking utensils. The sentiments are from the Pancake Sentiment Pack.
Lorena - To start the year I show you a Valentine-themed rocket card. I have chosen Bobby Bear with his garland of hearts since he is adorable! This time I have colored and made the background with colored pencils. And I have chosen the greeting from a download of Love Always printable sentiments here. Do you like the result? Hugs! x
Candace - For today's challenge project, the theme is Pancake Day, and use any image but Christmas images.  I used Pancake Oopsy digital image, colored her with markers.  The sentiment is from Pancake Sentiments and the pattern papers are from Paper Heaven 1 and 10 from Work & Play Collection and Paper Haven 2 from Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Collection.

Martine Hello, here is my first card for 2023... Pancake Day in the UK... I don't know what it means because we do not celebrate this day in my country lol. But i believe it has something to do with eating pancakes....? So... i colored up this beauty.. Pancake Oopsy . And added that text... i love that phrase : "Just sugar coating your day" , from the sentiment package Pancake Heaven . As always colored with distress ink , and the flowers are frommy stash. So let's eat pancakes!! I love it !

Kim Stewart - Happy Pancake Day! For my Design Team challenge project this week I picked Sparkle the Unicorn(she’s so adorably cute)  I chose Sparkle Unicorn Surprise 

My decorative papers come from Winnie Celebrations Kit 3 - Papers 2 downloadable printables as well as these Pretty Winnie Daisy papersI added coloured embellies from the Helga Hippo Embellies download bundle - I had to add lots of glitter and sparkle to her mane and tail.  Her name is after all Sparkle Unicorn. Have a crafty week!


MariaG - Hello everybody, I hope you had a lovely holiday season and you received lots of new crafting goodies that I'm sure you can't wait to try out. For this card I have used the Daisy Heart Gnome, she looks so cute holding that heart. I have used my colour pencils to colour Daisy and cut her out and 3D mounted onto a background using the Love/Romance Love and Kisses paper bundle 3, which I matted onto 3 layers. I added some silk paper and pink card and added the Love is in the air sentiment which I downloaded from the Love Always Printable Sentiments big bundle and finished off with some gem embellishments. I hope you like the card and have a go at making one yourself. Bye for now, MariaG.

Super fun projects from the team this week - thanks so much for all your inspiration ladies!

Sonja Magnusson
 - Hi everyone! I'm so excited to have joined the Polkadoodles team and this is my first project! Saying Thank You can be so easy this quick card is simple and done in no time. For today's challenge I used the sweet Love Heart - Honeypie digital and positioned the text I got from Winnie Sunshine Delights Sentiments Bundle directly on the lovely paper which you find in this Work & Play 10 Collection - Paper Heaven 7 on top I used the Thankyou - Sentiment - Happy Crafting!

Jacqueline here and today I'm going to share with you how to create a card you should always have in your stash. A get well soon card, for just in case! Polkadoodles recently began releasing a 'Stamp of the Month' which are amazing bargains at a ridiculously low price, and are often those stamps that you may not need every day, but are must haves for just when you need to create something special to show you care...

Sarah - Diamond Easel Cards are such a fun thing to create - I decorated mine with the BEAUTIFUL Spring surprise patterned papers and the largest butterfly from the Butterfly Trio dies.
ENRICA - Hi everyone! Hope your new year has started well! For my first project this year I've made a simple Z Fold Card using the super sweet Gnometastic Sunny downloads.  Patterned papers are from the Pretty Winnie Daisy papers And the sentiment is from the Winnie Sunshine Delights Sentiments Bundle.  Happy crafty new year!! x
Donna - For this weeks’ card I used the Winston Bear Sewing digital stamp and paper from the Adalene Paper Pack to create a simple iris fold behind a circle aperture. I used alcohol markers to colour the image to coordinate with paper pad and I doodled some faux stitching to add some interest.
