Natalia - Hello everyone today I have for you a card full of Anemones from our new collection and with a bird from one of the winter collections. It is kept in warm colors with a background using Distress Inks and various stamps which beautifully shows the mixed media effect. I hope you like it!

Melanie - Morning crafters, for my project this week I have used Scruff the dog pre-coloured digi. For my background I've used a green spot pattern paper from Spring Gnome's and also a teal textured paper from Cactus Succulent textured paper The sentiments I've used are both from the Winnie Daisy greetings quotes and sentiment. I love how the patterned papers coordinates with the colours of the dogs scarf. To complete the card I added a green sparkle star and circle to add a bit of bling. Happy Crafting!

Merja - On my card I used BBQ, Chef, Cook digi bundle. I used a text editor program to design the layout, printed it and then coloured it with alcohol markers. Simple but cute 😊

Jane – Have you seen the amazing DIGI DEALS in the store? Well, this little cutie is just one of them and he is called BOB THE DOG PAINTING KENNEL. I kept it pretty simple, colouring him with pencils and adding a tiny ‘Hi’ from the REBEL EASY SNIP MESSAGE STRIPS.

Maz - for my floral project to follow a colour palette, I used Thinking of You Blossom Stamp Set. I stamped a few times, coloured with ProMarkers and decoupaged for some dimension. I stenciled the background using a combination of Square Trellis Stencil and Blossoming Rose Stencil. More details can found on my blog

Wendy  - Summer is HERE! I'm so ready for the long nights and warm temperatures in my neck of the woods. This adorable little gnome is having my kind of picnic - burgers and wine. He's part of the amazing BBQ, Chef, Cook bundle - Gnomes for Men and it comes with everything that you see here (and MORE) to create your own summer picnic scene. I drew a sunset background and colored everything with Copic markers. It's perfect for Father's Day, or anything for the summer. Thank you for looking!

Rose- Hello friends in blogland ! Today we have another fabulous challenge - using colour palette. For this challenge, I have created a Tag using digital floral Lilac Haze watercoloured flowers bundle . printed the flowers and coloured the image with Copic Markers . Added in few layers with sentiment . Read more details here

Renske - I coloured this great digistamp from the Gnome for Men collection and made a shaker card. I fussy cut the little beer glasses from the paper.

Natalia - Hello everyone, Special day for our fathers is just around the corner. I prepared a card for a traveling dad who loves spending time in seaside resorts. It's a simple, interactive card. When you open it a window with the inscription Bon voyage is revealed. I used Distress inks for the background and ready-made digi stamps from the collection - Winnie Starfish/Sandcastles Craft Printables, ad lots of layers to make waves and dunes. It was great fun with this card!

Enrica - Hello crafty friends! I colored a lot for my Father’s Day themed card this week! I’ve combined the super cute Retire & Snooze Gnome For Men (digital stamp and message) with the Country Road Scene background. I might get boring, but I really enjoy creating scenes with these amazing backgrounds! 

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