Week 16 - Anything Goes - Polkadoodles Paper Crafting Challenge

Shop on Etsy

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

Hello! We are starting a New Challenge this week...

ANYTHING GOES

Closes Noon, GMT, Friday 5 May. Winner will receive a $10 voucher to the Polkadoodles Digi Store.

You do not need to use Polkadoodles Products to enter our challenges, but we do love seeing your fabulous creations with Polkadoodles images.
We only have a few little rules and they are over there in the side bar ------->

Before we see what the Design Team have been up to, have you seen the latest Polkadoodles New Release?
Say hello to the Fabulous, super adorable and cutest new collection

Aren't they totally adorable.  You can check out the Polkadoodles Gallery for the latest

creations by the Design Team using this wonderful collection HERE!

And why not pop along to our fabulous POLKADOODLES FACEBOOK GROUP, there
is always lots of daily inspiration to see and to get those creative juices flowing.

Now let's see what wonderful inspiration the Design Team have for you this week....
The DT's twist on the challenge theme is to use A Design Sheet from one of the collections,
and if you want to join in with that theme then go for it :-)

Jacki - For my cards this week I was spoiled for choice I had already designed my first card using Sticks and Bones DS 2  Then our lovely Nikky goes and releases the ubber cute Horace and Boo so I decided to use one of these as well, well who can resist! Both cards were super easy to make For the sticks and Bones I used a paper and image with greeting and attached them to my card blank using some bones as embellies. For my other this was just using just a topper from DS 2 and then using an embellishment (fishbowl) to finish.

Ruth:  I've used one of the design sheets from Work and Play Vol 12 plus added some buttons and black card from my stash.  Really nice and easy to use plus I can get two cards plus lots of extra elements from one sheet!
Helen - Feeling a bit pretty and delicate for this challenge, so I chose to use one of the beautiful design sheets from the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles collection for my project. I made a card with a little wrap around the front using one of the beautiful Elegant nest dies, so I have 2 photos to share with you the outside and the inside. You can find this beautiful sheet right here at the store http://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/digital-decoupage-design-sheets/?sort=newest&page=4 and the Elegant nest die right here http://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/elegant-nest-set-of-3-craft-cutting-dies/

Karon - I have used the delightful Helga Hippo Collection and one of the wonderful Design sheets from the collection (Design sheet 2-06 in the collection). This design sheet is also part of a Duo Design sheet download #9 if you only want to buy just a couple to make a card :-)  I have also used the Flower Flourish Die.  This card is just 4" by 4" and is to be part of a gift set.
Pauline - I decided to use a fun design sheet from the Work & Play 11 Collection to create my card, I printed the sheet twice so that I could add a decoupage layer and added some of the super papers and a sentiment from the collection.  There are two images, two sentiments and embellishments on each design sheet so I have enough left over to create another card.
Carol - so today I have made a super sweet card featuring Design Sheet 10 from the fabulous Horace and Boo collection.

Lisa - For my make I have used a design sheet from Work & Play 5 Festive Hollybobs Collection. I've teamed the elements with some patterned papers from the same collection and made a clean & simple Z fold Christmas card.

Lots of fabulous creations to inspire you....

TinaThis time I made an Explosion Box and used the "Stick & Bones - Big Bundle".
Each area is 4 x 4 inch and the inhabitants I have colored with Polychromos. Much more photos and details you find on my Blog.


























Scatty Jan - For my project this week I have made a saloon milk carton - I cut this on my portrait and was a lot of fun decorating up - I used the lovely images from Work & Play 3, that I coloured up using Graph'It Markers, You can also purchase the images seperately Cowboy as a digi image, also as a  clear stamp, and Cowgirl as a digi stamp - Lots more photo's on my blog.


Bev here with a cute 3D Birdhouse using Twiggy & Toots. I initially chose 7 printed 3 separate backing papers onto 300gsm card then turned them over and printed the templates onto the rear then simply cut them out and constructed the project and just for a little decoration I made some roses using the Flowers 1 Die set and added them to the roof.



Lou - I have used one of the design sheets from Winnie in Wonderland collection to create a circle rocker/stepper card. The only other embellishment added is a small piece of black lace ...




Michelle  - I have made a Twist and Pop Card and I have used Winnie In Wonderland Big Kahuna Bundle to make it. This was a lot of fun to make you can find the Video I used to make it on my blog.




AnjieI have used left over bits of design sheet 1 from the ever so cute Sticks and Bone collection. I used the other bits for a make a few weeks ago. This is why it's always worth while saving the bits that are left over. I've placed the image and all the embellies on to 3D foam to make them pop. I've shaped and layered the flowers and added to the edge of the card.

TinaI have created a small garden. There are lots of flowers, but also trees, a pair of birds, many butterflies and bees. The form for the garden consists, incidentally, of an empty tobacco can, which I have cut in length. For my work I have used a lot from the "Winnie Fruit Punch" - Big Bundle. 
Winnie Dandelion Day and the Bee House is colored with Touch Twin Markers. Here you will also find individual components: "Dandelion Days - Winnie"  and "Dandelions" Design Sheet"

Scatty - For my card this week I have used one of the lovely stamps from Winnie Sugar Blossom , how utterly lovely is she, You can pre-order the Winnie stamps and paper pad collectors edition right here. I have coloured up using pencils, and the flowers and paper are from The Summertime collection.

AnjieI used the fab stamps from the Daisy Days collection. You can get the stamps on their own HERE if you wish to. I did lots of masking and used different inks to stamp the images with onto watercolour paper. I then used my Kuretake Zig Art and Graphic pens to water colour the flowers and background.

The DT's twist on the challenge theme is to add some flowers.
and if you want to join in with that theme then go for it :-)

Ruth:  I made this card for a work colleague who was moving teams - she actually does look like the image!  I've used Work and Play Vol 11 for the image, papers and various elements plus the Bubbleicious Frame and flowers die.


Helen - I decided to reach for some real stamping so what better than those beautiful Daisydays stamps just so pretty. You can find them right HERE in the store. I had a messy playtime using brushos stamped my flowers and a butterfly on the top and cut them out and arranged them on some kraft card.

Alysha ~ This week our DT theme is Flowers here I have coloured in WINNIE SUGAR SPRINKLES SHARING IS CARING with Spectrum Noir Markers and added her to a background created in Craft Artist using items from DAISY DAYS CD ROM hugs Aly xx

Lisa - I have used papers and elements from the Belle Papillon Big Kahuna Download, along with an Elegant Flourish die cut. 


Karon - I am in the middle of making a little set of cards.  This card measures just 4" by 4".  I decided to add some glossy accents to the flower and the teeny butterfly.  I used Helga Hippo Collection and Design Sheet 5 from the collection, which can also be bought as part of  Design Sheet 3 Duo Download, if you prefer HERE :-)  I also added a flourish behind the flower, using the wonderful Flower Flourish Die.

Pauline - I have created a shabby chic style card using the beautiful Polkadoodles Belle Papillon Vintage CD Rom.  I used a topper from the Amazingness Collection, two Papers from the Paper Collection and a sentiment from the Sentiments & Alphas Collection.  I printed the topper several times so that I could add some decoupage layers.

Here's the ones I used http://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/helga-hippo-design-sheet-13-duo-download/. They're just so versatile and Helga is a must for any project.
