THE CHALLENGE IS 

ANYTHING GOES

So let's get to the inspiration for today's new Card Making & Paper Craft Scrapbook challenge...


Wendy - Hello everyone I hope you are having a good week. It's not long until Easter now so why not have a look on the Polkadoodles website as there are some beautiful collections perfect for your Easter projects. Today I'm sharing a card made with one of the gorgeous digital stamps by Lucy Monkman. This is the Cute Hen and Chicks image and I think they really don't need a lot of colouring to make a fabulous and very arty card. I've teamed this with a gold foiled sentiment from the Spring into Easter Collection and some simple mat and layering for a lovely and classy Easter card.



├ůsa -Hi there crafty friends! It´s all about Easter gifts today and I made this candy box. I´ve used this adorable digi Cute Bunny Rabbit sitting on Easter Egg. I colored my image with copics and made some grass in the background. The sentiment comes from Spring Flower Mothers Day Friends greetings sentiments.

Betsy - Today's card features Gil Rabbit Growing Sunflowers. In honor of spring I've turned them into daisies! I composed my card in the computer using Winnie's Celebration Kit 1 Papers 2 for my background. I used an excess piece of the green stripe and die cut it with a grass border die. I colored up Gil using Copic markers. I used a side folding card base with a white scalloped panel, then the panel I popped up on foam. I adhered the sentiment to the top left. I embellished with a white gel pen, tiny iridescent butterflies, a heart button on Gil's overalls and tiny yellow flowers.
Copic colors used: Yg00, Y02, Y15, Y17, YG11, YG63, YG23, B000, B01, B93, B95, B97, Roo, R02, E33, E35, E37, B1, C3, C5, W0, W1, W3, W5

Nunzia: With Polkadoodles digi you have a thousand possibilities to making a card. I designed this one by centering a digi doily from Winnie Celebrations Banners on a pink patterned sheet included in Flower meadow digi stamp. Then I pasted Winnie-daisy-fairy and Happy Easter included in Winnie-celebrations sentiments. Finally I coloured with alcohol markers the scene and cut out the frame from the base.


Wendy - Hi everyone! I just love spring! The flowers are blooming and everyone is ready to throw those windows open to let the fresh air in. This image is Winnie in the Window from the Winnie Special Moments bundle, and she has the right idea. She's looking fabulous and enjoying the warmer temperatures. Thank you for looking!

Jennifer - Hi again crafty friend, today's project is is a really fun one for giving Easter candy a one-of-a-kind twist! Let me tell you how I made 3 custom candy bars, so easily! I started with Polkadoodles digital products "daisy lily ladybug", "little bunny rabbits", "hoppy easter", and "rebel printable paper bundle 2". I measured my candy bars to find out how big to make each wrapper. I made the bunny 5¼x5¾", and the other two 4¾x6¾".
After I got the images I wanted layered onto the different pattern paers, I printed them all out as a single layer, on a color printer. To finish the designs, I just colored each of the little characters with alcohol markers.
Now that each wrapper is finished, I attached each one to some shimmery cardstock, from my stash. All 3 wrappers are now 5⅝" by 6¾". The bunny wrapper is a vertical design, so it only has a shimmer boarder of about ¼", where the two horizontal designs have a boarder of about ½". But the border is simply a design choice, and the entire wrapper can be done in a single layer, if you print your wrapper to be at least 5½"x6".
I used some double sided adhesive tape to attach my wrappers to the candy bars. The easiest way I found, was to put the adhesive directly onto the top side of the chocolate bar, then lay my custom wrapper on top. This way, I could be sure that my images were centered on the front of the bar. Then I added more adhesive to each side and folded them over the back of the bar. And that's it!
I hope you like this quick and easy custom candy wrapper idea! It can be great in easter baskets, stocking stuffers, valentines, and as party favors. You can use any pattern paper, and any images you want (even pre-coloured to make them even faster) to make them match your theme. Hopefully I've inspired some new crafty ideas for you. Enjoy your weekend, and have a creative day! ❤️Jennifer S @pueen_queen
***all dimensions are to fit a standard U.S. sized hersheys milk chocolate candy bar.

Candace - For today's challenge project, the theme is Easter and make an Easter gift or treat. I used the Bundle, Spring into Easter to make this darling treat basket. The bundle comes with black & white images, colored images, pattern papers and sentiments. It's an awesome bundle to have an all in one to make a project!

Martine - Hello everyone, i have got a new card for you and because it is almost Easter it is a eastercard! lol I made a basket and two of the same cards with a little basket between them. So you can put chocolate easter eggs in it and giving it away . I used a embossing fold to make it look like a basket and colored it with Distress oxide. I used Butterfly Chick for it . Isn't she cute? There are more of them in the store, under the name Spring into Easter . That word...easter... is from Doodlebug Design . And as always i colored it with Distress ink.
Have a great Easter time!.... and don't eat too many eggs ;)

KIM STEWART - Happy DIGI DAY! For our challenge this week it was "create a gift for Easter". Since my kids and now grandkids, All love Lindt Gold Bunnies i decided to create little baskets for them to sit in. I did 2 smaller baskets for the mini Gold Bunnies and a large square basket to hold a bigger bunny. Lots of piddly cutting but so worth it in the end; The baskets turned out so cute. I added a few mulberry flowers to the handles and die cut out some tags from the Spring Into Easter digi bundle https://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/spring-into-easter/ It has the cutest Toppers in the set. My paper are all from my extra pieces bin. Don't forget to enter the challenge. You might win. We'd love to see what you're creating this week.
CHRISTIN B - I used this Cute Bunny Rabbit with butterfly from the Lucy Monkman range in the Polkadoodles store.

Christina P - Hi everyone. This week's theme was using turquoise and a circle so for my birthday card I used the Ruby birthday cake digital stamp and next to her I added a sentiment using the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Sentiment/Quotes Bundle. I coloured Ruby in using my alcohol markers then die cut the stamp into a circle. I then printed some of the beautiful papers from the Pretty Winnie Daisy papers. I cut some into circles to add in the background and used one of the papers as the back layer. I finished the card using some flowers and twine from my stash.


ENRICA - Hello everyone! This week the DT was asked to make an Easter card with a non-standard shape and a flower seemed perfect to me. I used the super cute Butterfly Chick Spring into Easter digital stamp, colred with Copic. Patterned papers are from the Bella Bear Morning Coffee and Gnome holding carrots gardening Digi Deals. I’m totally in love with this sweet chick, hope you like it too!


Tinne - Hi everyone! Easter is looking around the corner, so we are creating Easter cards! I created a flower shaped card out of craft cardstock. I cut out the base shape a second time out of white oxide ink cardstock, and a third time out of a green pattern paper from the Work & Play 10 collection – Paper Heaven 2. I cut out the middle circle from the white one, and inked it with Speckled Egg Distress Oxide ink. I splattered it with water and some of the ink. Once dry, I glued it on my base shape. I used the green scalloped circle to cut out 2 grass sections, and I cut of the scallops. I glued one section on the flower shape, glued the gnome from the Gnome Spring Lambs/Sheep precoloured image set behind the front part of the grass, put some foam tape behind it and also glued it on the base shape. I put foam tape behind the butterfly and glued it in place. I used a sentiment from the Lily Bug Ladybird Messages set, because we don’t send Easter cards here in Belgium. I put foam tape behind it and glued it into place. And now I have tot turn my flower shape into a card. I folded a piece of craft cardstock, creating a smal base card. I cut out a circle using a circle die from my stash, but I kept a piece of the fold. That way you get a base card shaped like a circle. I glued this behind my flower shape, and now you’ve got a flower shaped card! Have fun crafting!

Deborah - Hello all! Deborah here, and I am working on more Easter cards for my granddaughters. I just love this Cute Bunny Rabbit Sitting on Easter Egg digi stamp [https://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/cute-bunny-rabbit-sitting-on-easter-egg-digital-stamp-digistamp-for-cards-cardmaking-crafting-and-stickers/] and I know my granddaughter will too. I decided to use a rounded, braided, non-traditional shape that opens on the side, and colored her with alcohol ink markers. This digi stamp is also available in a pre-colored version, if you prefer. I finished the card by adding a sentiment from the Springtime Smiles Sentiment Bundle [https://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/easter-greetings-quotes-and-sentiments-printable-clipart-digital-stamp-digistamp-for-cards-cardmaking-crafting-and-stickers/] and a few embellishments. Listed below are the Copic Alcohol Ink Marker colors that I used to color this digi stamp...

Maz - This week we followed a colour palette and used a circle. For my March Birthday card, I used Rebel Birthday Cake along with backing paper and a sentiment from the same collection. The presents were created using Sweet Birthday Stamp Set. The candles and balloons are from Birthday Celebrations Stamp Set. All details can be found on my blog.

CHRISTIN B - The design team was asked to make something for march birthday. The most days in march standing in the zodiac sign Pisces. Although my birthday is in February it’s also my zodiac sign. Therefore I wanted to make something with this beautiful pisces and combined it with the zodiac star sign circles. I printed it out in extra large to made a decoration for me with the tambour frame. I colored everything with alcohol markers, now some pencils are empty:).

Wendy - Hello everyone wishing you a wonderful week - today were making March Birthday cards so I decided to use the wonderful Pre-coloured Pisces image from the Zodiac Collection along with one of the sentiments. It's the perfect image as we had a colour palette to use too for this challenge and to include a circle! Did you know that March birthdays fall across two zodiac signs ? - Pisces and Aries. I printed out the image 3 times before fussy cutting out and decoupaging and then added lots of lovely sparkle to the design - you can never have too much sparkly don't you think?

Nat Martin - This time I could not resist using the cute Milkshake Drink Rebel digistamp, I love this one, she has so much attitude.  The background papers are from the Coffee Tea Cake Digital Paper kit - Hope you like It! ❤️
