THE WINNERS OF OUR LAST CHALLENGE ARE AT THE END OF THIS POST

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

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

Let's take a look at the Design Team inspiration this week...

Jill - Gnomes are a very fun and, in my eyes, a requirement for any holiday card collection! I colored in this Gnometastic Celebration Balloons with alcohol markers and cut it out. I used Distress Oxides to ink blend a fading green background and propped up the gnome with foam squares. I used some pattered paper from the Winnie Christmas Wishes Digi Paper pack to create a decorative strip underneath the gnome. Lastly, I embellished with sequins! 

Alison - For the challenge this fortnight I made an easel card with drawer using Sweet tweet snowman, and Winnie White Christmas Printable papers.   A few added gems and die cut snowflakes to add bling brings it all together...

Michelle - Is there anything better than bringing joy to those around you with Christmas and Holiday baking? This adorable little gingerbread baker, called “baked with love”, brings smiles and joy with her baked goodies for friends, family, and neighbors! Her cute smile just sparks joy!! She makes an adorable card or gift tag for homemade goodies! For the greeting I used the very versatile greeting set called Festive Word Art in the Winnie White Christmas collection! The word “Noel” seemed fitting to be wishing the receiver a joyful greeting! And building on the theme of “joy”, I used the background digital paper design from Winnie Christmas Wishes papers 1 download. I hope you have a chance to spread “joy” this holiday season!

Sasha - Hello crafty friends, I’m so excited to be joining the Polkadoodles crafty family. For this card I used the snowmen friends digital stamp to create a non traditional version of a Christmas card. Hope you like this frosty friendly take on a holiday card. 

 Judy using Choosing the Christmas Tree Elvis Wesley Moose

Great Projects as always, we hope we've given you some inspiration for your own cards this week!

Let's take a look at the Design Team inspiration this week...

JillHello! Holiday spirit is in full swing! I colored in the Wizardy Magic Little Dude with alcohol markers and fussy cut it out. I used a snowflake stamp (Similar stamp here) in the background and embossed it in white. I added some silver washi tape and printed out the sentiment from the Serenity Fairy Wishes Sentiment bundle as well as the "Season's Greetings" freebie from the Polkadoodles site!

MichelleI had so much fun creating my first card for Polkadoodles! The cute little Hollybobs Angel is absolutely adorable! Waving her little magic wand, it seems she could make our Christmas wishes come true! I added a little sparkle to her fur trim, magic wand and wings! The background digital paper design I used was from the Winnie Winterland Paper Heaven 2 download. I love the textures and coloring of this paper collection! Lastly, I used “Peace” as my greeting from the Festive Word Art Winnie White Christmas collection! Here’s hoping that our sweet little Hollybob Angel can bring “peace” to every home this Christmas season! 

Alison - I've used this great digi stamp from the Twiggy & Toots collection called Letter to Santa...

Great Projects as always, we hope we've given you some inspiration for your own cards this week!

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

We are delighted to announce some new team members this week - welcome to MichelleAlison and Jill - we hope you love all their inspiration!

So let's see what the Design Team made this week... 

  Judy using Frosty Winter Smiles Ski Time...

Alison Jeatt - I'm so excited to make my first project for the team! Our theme is Christmas and anything goes so why not pop along and join in.   My card is a 6 x 6 card blank which I embossed with snowflakes added papers from the Winnie White Christmas digi Papers set 1, then used the cute Rudolph also from the Winnie White Christmas kit.  I Coloured with prisma pencils and added a few snowflakes and gems for sparkle.
JillHello! For my first challenge, I colored the Birthday Tree- Winnie winter celebration with my Spectrum Noir markers. I printed out the Tree patterned paper from the Winnie Christmas Wishes and used Distress Ink around the edges for added dimension. Lastly, I embellished with some red pearl dots.

Pam - Our challenge this week is Thank You ~ Not a Card.  With the Thanksgiving Holidays approaching, I decided to make Napkin holders for my place settings.  For this project I've reached back to Polkadoodles 2015 Autumn/Fall digi Stamps Mono digital Download Bundle and found this cute scarecrow that worked perfect. I also added the 'free' Thankful sentiment download at the bottom. I've colored him with Copic markers and added a scalloped border, then cut a duplication pattern out of chocolate brown for the background and threaded an orange organza ribbon through to tie in the back.  What a pretty setting it made! 

Annette (Netty's Cards): As well as papercrafts I enjoy making jewellery and have made some bracelets for Christmas gifts this year.  I've decorated this gift box with Bella Bear Gift, and inked a background using my Distressed Trellis stencil. The image, as usual, is watercoloured using Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers.

Rose Hello friends .. how are you .. Christmas is on it's way ! Have you started working on your project yet? As for our current challenge I have created a Christmas Tag using digital image Baked With Love - Gingerbread Baker with digital papers Baked With Love - Paper Heaven 1 - I have used svg cut for Poinsettia Flowers Poinsettia Cutting File

MichelleI had so much fun creating my first card for Polkadoodles! The cute little Hollybobs Angel is absolutely adorable! Waving her little magic wand, it seems she could make our Christmas wishes come true! I added a little sparkle to her fur trim, magic wand and wings! The background digital paper design I used was from the Winnie Winterland Paper Heaven 2 download. I love the textures and coloring of this paper collection! Lastly, I used “Peace” as my greeting from the Festive Word Art Winnie White Christmas collection! Here’s hoping that our sweet little Hollybob Angel can bring “peace” to every home this Christmas season! 

MARZENA... I was looking for reindeer noses for the new challenge. And I found some. :D I packed them in a transparent bag and decorated them with the reindeer Rudolph and I coloured him with the Faber Castell Polychromos. For the flap I cut cardstock 12.5 cm x 12 cm and folded at 6 cm. I rounded off the corners and then stapled them onto the bag. In the Silhouette programme I used this design paper, red with white dots and cut it to size. I put the sentiment on the design paper before I printed it.  I made the gifts from this download set...

Fabulous Projects as ever, ladies!
