Misty - Hello friends! I’m excited to announce that I’ve been invited to join the Polkadoodles Design Team! I’m very appreciative of this opportunity and excited to share with you my first project! In this project, I’ve created a fun and whimsical Halloween card. Y’all know that I had to go non-traditional for this one…it’s what I do! The fun gnome is on an action wobble and I love his little costume! I found a fun shape in my Silhouette library to add layers and finished it off with some glitter gel pen! Check out the video here: and thank you for joining me! Supplies used: Candy Boots Halloween GnomeHalloween Trick or Treat printable papers bundle 2Halloween Trick or Treat printable papers

Nat Martin - On this occasion I created three candy boxes and have coloured three Boo collection digi stamps 🤣. I started with one of them and then I couldn’t stop coloring ….ha ha ha ….It was really addictive as they are wonderful designs and I fell in love with all of them 😍

Maz - for my Halloween Icons tag, I used Sunflower Broomstick from the NEW Hocus Pocus Witches collection. I removed her broomstick and sat her on top of a trio of pumpkins from Ghastly Ghost collection. Coloured using ProMarkers. I created the background by using Terrifying Skulls Stencil. I finished off by adding a few cobwebs from the Spooky Hat Die Set and a distressed black bow. All details can be found on my blog.
Jennifer @pueen_queen - It's starting to get chilly outside, so I decided to make a COOL interactive winter scene card. I used the the Theo Penguin digital stamp along with the Theo penguin paper bundle to start off. I used this beautiful blue snowflake background to set my sky, and then I took some white glitter paper from my stash for the hills. After I figured out my card layout, I used a peice of scrap card, matching the one I want my characters to sled down, to cut a matching hill. Then I used a die to cut out the path they'll take. You can also cut a slit with scissors or a cricut, as long as your foam dots will slide through. 
I glued another small peice of card to the back of my sled, to work as an extension & then stuck it to 2 foam dots, placed on the pull tab, with the die cut hill between them.
After that, I could assemble all of my pieces with some thin foam tape between the hills to ensure my pull tab slides easily. Finally, I printed a sheet of sentiments from the Theo penguin greetings pack and chose a couple that fit my card best. I put the "brrr!" Sentiment on my pull tab as an extra surprise when my trio comes sledding down the hill. I matted the "happy winter season" on some blue card and vellum to match the snowflakes in the background to finish up. This card works great for all winter holidays, no matter what your recipient celebrates! I hope you're inspired for the chilly upcoming season! Have creative day!

Samantha - I used this lovely Octavia Wistful digistamp - she's one of the older images in the store but I LOVE this range so much and they can be used all year round just by changing the colours. I forgot about our theme of no red or green but the colours suit this so perfectly I just went with the flow and got carried away. Hope you love it!

Catrin - Hi everyone! sharing with you today my card using Shopping Wanda - Coloued with promarkers. I have also cut and pasted the digital Shopping bags from Wanda Ephemera Bundle onto some of the papers in Set 3 - Wanda Printable Ppaers and fussy cut. The sentiment is taken from Messages and Quotes - Wanda

Christin - Now it's almost halloween so today I have a witchy project for you! I coloured this wonderful Matilda Witch only in black and purble - I love this combination for halloween. What do you think about my Distress background? It's a little bit like she teleported on my card;)
Wendy L - Hi everyone! I just adore the new Christmas Bear Bundle. I made the sweetest box card using several of the pre-printed images and the gorgeous paper. I love to color, but sometimes it's just so nice to have those pre-colored images ready to use. I used the Hang Stockings as well some of the extra trees and the sweet snowman included with the Kahuna bundle to create this adorable card. I would love to see what you create with this sweet little bear. Thank you for looking!

Naomi - Hi everyone! Welcome back. For this challenge, I used an Elvis Wesley Moose Carol Singing and a Digi paper from the Gingerbread Holly papers 2. I coloured Elvis Wesley with my alcohol markers and gave the Twinkle a shadow for a little extra colour. Elvis Wesley is ready for the Christmas Season! Follow my Instagram here:

Mayte - I made a Christmas Card with Bauble-hat-bear using my alcohol markers and polychromos . The background was made with Distress ink !! Very easy!

Wendy J - This week I created a slimline card with a lovely dark and spooky inked background teamed up with the newest Halloween digi collections which have just been released! Check them out here!

Wow!! Lots of gorgeous inspiration for you this week to use - we hope you'll share what you make with your Polkadoodles products on our Social Media! Share in our Facebook group here
