Let's see the great projects the team have made for you this month!...

Sarah - I pushed myself out of my comfort zone for this card - I usually use my alcohol markers for colouring but this time I thought I'd try water colouring. This Perfect Poinsettias stamp set has become a new favourite for me so I stamped and coloured and cut an aperture - inside of which I added this lovely Merry Christmas die cut sentiment. I like making some Christmas cards early - it definitely takes a little of the pressure off when it gets to Christmas time.

Maz - For my 'Fantasy' themed card, I used Witch Cauldron from the Gnome Trick or Treat Collection. I coloured her using ProMarkers. For the cauldron card, I used the Snow Globe Die and Grunge Slime Stencil. I attached spider webs and pumpkins using Spooky Hat and Spooky Pumpkin  die sets. All details are on my blog.

ENRICA - Hello crafty friends!  Today's challenge is a great one, Christmas organisation! I don't know about you but I never have enough tags when getting closer to Christmas time LOL! For my tags I used three of the cute gnomes which you can find in the Gnome Festive Fun Big BundleI also used the 'Gift Tree' - 'Just for You Gift' - 'Put your Boots on' images too. I colored them with Copic markers and added WordArt Sentiment from the Christmas Joy Bundle...

Natalia - I made these lovely lanterns using the Latte Christmas Tweetings stamp set...


Ariadna - Hello crafters!! This week's challenge is Halloween!  Halloween is coming and witches are preparing a super funny party!  Inspired on this I decided to create this card with the super cute digital stamp Winnie Wednesday Witch & CatI colored these super sweet stamps with my favorite pencil colors and for the background I added a little bit of color using just some crayons and that's all!  I hope you like it!
Natalia - Welcome to our Halloween / Autumn challenge this week :).  This time I have prepared a mixed media project with digital stamps such as Spooky House Halloween and Spooky Sentiments. My background I coloured with watercolour paints and Distresses, but this gorgeous Spooky House I transferred again from the paper to project. You can spot a mirror reflection :). I corrected it a bit with black gesso to make a deep of black look. I added around all the spooky things and my work was ready! Have fun creating something that you like!
Sabina - For today's challenge I decided to do a mixed media project with autumn colours. I' ve used this cute precoloured digi stamp Gnometastic Just in Case and

Spring Gnome fun puns, quotes and sentiments. On the background you can see stamped parts of flower from  Flower Collage Stamp set.

Catrin - Hi everyone, I have created a DL Halloween card using the new Bat Gnome from the Halloween Gnome Bundle. The image has been coloured with Promarkers and fussy cut. The background has been created by blending 3 different distress inks, Villainous Potion, Dusty Concord and Seedless Preserves leaving a white circle for the moon - I then used a cloud stencil and Black Soot distress ink to create the colour effect I then Flicked some white paint and left to dry. I then added the sloped with Black Soot. I die cut the sentiment from the Gnome Trick or Treat Printable Greetings set and  to complete I added 2 die cut bats. 

Ann-Nicole - Hello all!  This week, the DT was challenged to create something with a magical fantasy theme.  I chose a Polkadoodles image that you can actually get for free just for signing up for their newsletter!  This little gal is so cute and I had so much fun coloring her!  All of the details can be found at canterburycarddesigns.com.  Come join us for this magical challenge!
Natalia Kuzak - Hi All crafters! Today I've prepared for you an art journal page in beautiful autumn colours - which are gougeres! Mixed of red, orange and brown, all these you can find on my project - colored with Distresses. I used a digital stamp of Winnie Wednesday Pumpkin and one of the Spooky Sentiments. This sentiment I transferred from the paper to my project. How? I used a laser printer and express transfer solution. It's very easy to do this for those who have that type of printer. Try this super fast technique!
Happy crafting for everyone!

Ariadna - I used this cute scarecrow with these other digital stamps from this great Autumn printable collection...
Rachael - Its almost Autumn, can you believe it?  Time to start and think about cards for the colder months and to get ahead I made this card for Halloween.  This fellow is called  Frankenstein boo but don't just think about Halloween - he would make a perfect birthday card for those little monsters in your life too.  The background papers are also from Paper heaven Halloween/Autumn bundle 2...

Amazing projects from the team this week!

Let's see what the team have made for you this month!...

Ariadna - I used these great digital stamps for my card - I love to make them look mixed media by sketching over the lines and adding my own doodles. Hope you like it! I used Frankenstion and the elements from 

Rachael I just love these cute monsters!  this little guy is called little monsters - fuzzpea and he is just adorable!  He was crying out to be coloured in Green but I thought that a bit too obvious, so went for zingy red instead so he really pops off the page.  I know a few little monsters who would love this card!

Natalia - Hello everyone, I've prepared for today just a simple card with  beautiful flowers from the Just a Little Note Blossom Flowers stamp set. I painted them with watercolour paints. The background is just a little painted and splashed. That's it!

  Judy: My DT card for this week is floral themed. I've used one of the images from Blooms 3 Flower Bundle. I colored the digi with Prismacolor Pencils and fussy cut. The card base was die cut. I splattered a little watercolor onto the white background. The sentiment is stamped using Sweet Birthday 4x6" Clear Stamp Set.

Jo Laverty - Another challenge is upon us and I tried to do something a little different to my normal style and create something with more of a mixed media feel to it. To create this card, I embossed 3 flowers from the 'Flower Power 1' stamp set using a white embossing powder and then placed a mask over to ink blend the background. For the background, I chose contrasting distress ink colours that would blend well together to create a rainbow of colours. Once the background was complete, I removed the masks and coloured in the images with alcohol markers. I inked up some splatters and sentiments taken from the 'Time to Bloom' stamp set, and finished off the card with some glitter dots to add some much needed sparkle.

ARIADNA Hello crafters! The challenge of this week is "Get organised for Christmas" and to start preparing our christmas cards!. I fell in love with Elvis Wesley Moose Bauble Decoration  - I colored the stamp with my favorite colour pencils and for the background I drew a christmas ornament with a wihite color pencil and also used some watercolor crayons in different red colors in a craft cardstock.  Hope you like it!

Wow! Amazing projects from the team this week!

Natalia - I decided to use the digistamps from Funny Old Bags. I've chosen Embarrassing Moment. Why?? Whatever age you are, it is always a time for shopping to make you feel better. Be crazy, funny or serious, you choose...So, this is it, my art journal page with a funny image, acrylic background, and a lot of vintage stamps describing time. Have fun!

 

 Jane – My slimline card today features stamps from the GREAT DAYS FLORALS stamp set and I have used the DELICIOUS SWIRLS stencil for my background.

Maz - For my Christmas in July project, I used Gnome, Jolly Holly Wishes stamp set. I lightly coloured the gnomes and trees in grey-tones and a touch of lilac and blue to match my background. The background was created using Trees/Foliage Great Outdoors Stencil. More details on my blog.

Ariadna Hello crafters!! The challenge of this week is "Friends Forever", and thinking in one of my favorites stories, Alice in Wonderland, I thought that the super cute digitalstamp from Polkadoodles "Winnie Wonderland Let's Hurry" was perfect for this project.! To do this card I colored the stamp with my colour pencils and I made a background for the with some spray inks, stencils and some watercolor crayons.  Hope you like it!

Natalia - This week I'm taking you to the magical fantasy world. My art journal page is based on various stamps available on Polkadoodle's website, but as the main, I use this time a very adorable small house from Rainbow Wishes Toadstool House stamp set, placed among a magic forest as in the fairy tales. The background I created with watercolour paints, Distress, and StazOn inks. I Wish you a creative weekend!
