So big huge welcomes to Jane Robinson, Tinne Peeters, Sarah Wyles and Deborah Hellman, Samantha Pfrimmer and Pueen Queen Jennifer!

Deborah Hellman - Hello all, so good to be here!  Here are two cute Halloween projects that I created using the Digi Winnie Wednesday Witch and Cat. For the Halloween treat bag, I slightly enlarged the Boo Halloween paper  in order to cover a 8.5 x 11" landscaped paper and added the image before printing. I then folded, glued, and added an optional decorative border and ribbon at the top. After completing the bag, I decided to make a smaller matching card using the same image. The sentiments for both projects came from the Boo Sentiment Bundle .I colored all images using Copic alcohol ink markers listed below. I hope you like them as much as I enjoyed creating them.

  • Hair, Hat, Cat: C 2, 3, 5, 7, 9 and BV 23

Jane Robinson - Hi there. This is Jane, and this is my first DT project for Polkadoodles and I couldn’t be happier to be part of the guest design team. I used Wheelbarrow Gnome and Frankenstein Gnome coloured using my Spectrum Noir markers. I have the Tri-blends and the brush Tri-blends and used a mixture of the two. The colours I used are as follows:
  • Purple blend – PL, PL3, PL2
  • Alpine green blend – AG5, AG3, AG1
  • Orange blend – OR3, OR2, OR1
  • Brown grey blend – BG9, BG6, BG2
  • Ice grey blend – IG10, IG7, IG2
  • Dark red blend – DR7, DR4, DR1
  • Earth brown blend – EB7, EB4, EB1
  • Fair skin blend – FS8, FS7, FS6
I also used a touch of coloured pencil for more definition, and Gelly Roll no.10 for highlights. I added the ‘EEK’, and the 'Pump Up Your Pumpkins' sentiments mat on pink, purple and black card stock with thin borders to help those sentiments to pop off the card. I fussy cut the cauldron, ghost, bat and haunted house from the patterned paper for added decoration.

Tinne Peeters - Hi everyone! For my first challenge as a DT member I chose a ghost as a Halloween icon. The Boo Ghost Halloween Gnome precoloured digital stamp is perfect for it! I created a full moon background using stencils and Distress Oxide inks. I cut out a black grass border using a die, and inked the top of the grass blades with blue ink. The sentiment I used is from the Halloween Trick or Treat Printable Greetings set. A video of how I made this card will be available on my Instagram page, I'd love it if you'd follow me and say hello!...

Pueen Queen (Jennifer)  - For this fun back to school card, I started with Polkadoodles an apple a day digital stamp. I colored this adorable little girl with ohuhu alcohol markers and finished her up by quickly fussy cutting her out. For the background, I used a sun ray stencil and a grass stencil with ranger distress inks to imply a sunny morning. I clear heat embossed the blue sky and added some clear glitter paste to the grass for a little sparkle and shine. The "have a fun day" sentiment is from Polkadoodles noodle panda themed messages, digital message printable pack. It was easy as print, cut, glue for this sentiment. I did pop it up a bit on some thin foam squares to help it stand out from the background.
Finally, to make this card extra fun, I popped up my school girl on an action wobbler. I think the first day of school should definitely be fun, and what's more fun than an interactive card? I can't believe how simple and easy it was to create this card with the Polkadoodles digital products! I hope you love my fun, back to school project today. Have a creative day. -Jennifer S.

Samantha - Hi everyone. Today I am featuring a card showcasing the ever adorable Winnie headed back to school using the Sharing an Apple image Copic colored in blues and reds. For Winnie’s dress, however, I did a little paper piecing using a printable paper from the Winnie White Christmas digi downloads set. I also used a corresponding red striped paper from the same paper set for the background along with a little subtle ink blending with Distress Oxide ink. And yes, you can use digital images for paper piecing techniques, you just have to run the same sheet of paper through your printer twice, once for the paper image and a second time for the feature image. To finish things off I used theEnjoy sentiment and I couldn’t be happier with how this cute card turned out.

Sarah Wyles - I'm thrilled to be part of the team! Today I've been busy creating with the super cute witch from the Boo Collection and layering paper textures. I inked all around the edges for a spooky feel and made her look a little 'green' lol. 

Natalia - Halloween has been on our blog lately, so today, I have another card with pumpkins for this occasion. I used a giant pumpkin from the new collection - Ghastly Ghost Halloween. I used Boneshakin Halloween paper as a background, and additional images such as leaves, bats, and small pumpkins are from the Autumn Fall Halloween Treat collection. Everything was colored with alcohol markers.

Sabina - We are in the Halloween mood. I made a quick and easy Halloween treat holder out of 6"x 6" piece of paper and decorate it with the paper scraps from the Happy Cactus Succulent printable paper patterns 1. I added a pre-coloured Apple Bobbing Halloween Gnome digi and one of the sentiments from Halloween Trick or Treat printable Greetings.

Sonja - These Boxes are quickly crafted I simply used my favorite papers from Halloween Trick or Treat printable papers bundle 1 and printed out in large then I folded the triangle Boxes and decorated with Halloween Trick or Treat printable Word Art and finished are the treats for our neighbor kids little Devil Boo is a great sweet decoration as well as on one of the boxes for a special person.

Catrin - Hi everyone! Send an encouraging back to school card to someone with this fab image, Reach for the Stars - Rebel - I have used a beld on blue distress inks on the background and added some white gel pen dots and stars. Rebel has been coloured with promarkers and Gold Glitter Glue has been added to the stars. The Sentiment is from Rebel Messgaes with attitude and heat foiled with reactive foil.

Jane – This super sweet NOODLE PANDA is called GRADUATION YOU PASSED. I gave him a black card blackboard and used white ink through the stencil from the FUNKY FLOWER FRIEND COLOUR & CREATE set to add a chalk effect. I decided I needed a pop of colour so used a gorgeous blue paper found in the NOODLE PANDA SET 2 DIGITAL PAPERS.
