Nikky - I made this big tag/bookmark using the new Friendship Days collection of Clear Stamps - I wanted lots of texture and layering - you can find out how I made it on the video below...

Maz - This card was made using distress inks and the new Friendship Days stamp sets - love them!

 Jane – Hello everyone! I have decorated a page in my small A6 art journal today. I have used both clear and digi stamps and created my own washi tape too.

Polkadoodles products used:

Digi Stamp: SPRING BUNCH GNOME

Clear Stamps: SWEET SMILE - HANGING GARDEN – VINTAGE TEXT

Stencils: CONFETTI – LAND & SEA

Caroline - I coloured and fussy cut the flower from the Collage Queen stamp set. The hearts created a cute bottom border, this is part of the same stamp set.  All tied up with ribbon! I used: Stamps - Collage Queen For a Day & Paper Pad - Blushing Blooms...

Enrica - 
Roberta - Here I am with an Easter-themed card, a very sweet bunny.
To make it I used the digital stamps: Love You Balloon that I printed and colored with Spectrum Noir Classique alcohol markers. For the background, on the other hand, I used one of the cards from the Helga Hippo Paper collection that I stamped with the Queen of Hearts  stamp.
Natalia - The theme of this week for our DT is Chocolate or food. So this time I've decided to do some art journal page using chocolate colours, digi stamps, polymer stamps, and stencils, all from Polkadoodles. I've chosen for the first plan  Cherry Chocolate Cream Cupcake coloured with watercolor brush pens. I Wish you a creative weekend!

Let's see what the team have made for you this month - wow, inspirational!...

Jane – Hello everyone! I have decorated a page in my small A6 art journal today. I have used both clear and digi stamps and created my own washi tape too. Polkadoodles products used: Digi Stamp: SPRING BUNCH GNOMEClear Stamps: SWEET SMILE - HANGING GARDEN  VINTAGE TEXTStencils: CONFETTI  LAND & SEA

 Gabrielle - I used this Oddella Fairy Ickyink digital stamp to create a tag with lots of texture...

Caroline - Love & Kisses - In this lovely stamp set is the perfect heart for Valentines Day! Using the Blushing Blooms paper pad I created several layers on top of each other. Stamp the floral heart onto one of the patterned papers four times. Heat emboss with a raspberry pink colour and then fussy cut out. Stamp and heat emboss the sentiment and put altogether with some ribbon inbetween the layers and tie with a bow.

ENRICA - If a daisy doesn't make spring... many daisies definitely yes!!
For my slimline card I used precoloured digital stamps and patterned papers from the Daisydays Printables 
and the free template to create the flower pot shaped card. Are you beginning to smell the scent of spring too?
Natalia  - We've left Valentine's Day behind, but I am still in this loving mood... :) 
The theme this week for our DT is Spring Flowers. I've made a wooden heart decorated with digi flowers. You can believe me or not but for this project, I used one collection - Daisydays - Downloadable Stamp ME Printables. I love daisy flowers even they are not strictly Spring flowers. I made them in 2 ways. First I was printing some in color. Second, I was following Nikky's advice and I printed some just like for watercolor painting on parchment paper and on handmade paper which is perfect for making 3D flowers. For the ones on parchment paper, I colored them with a white gel pen. After placing all my flowers, I added some splashes here and there.. of course, used also some Polkadoodles' stencil and polymer stamps to make my work a mixed media style. I Wish you a creative weekend!

Natalia - My new project of this week I made canvas with adorable Earlie Hedgehog Butterfly - Fuzzypuffs digi stamp colored by alcohol markers. The background was painted with acrylic paints, stamped by Bella Fleur A5 large Clear Stamp Set. The heart's wings were drawn with the stencil Feathers & Wings - 6 x 6" creative craft mixed media and also I used the sentiment from Sentimentals - clear Polymer stamp set - 12 stamps
Hope you like it!

Linh - I altered this planner/journal page Using the Daisydays Stamp set and printables


WOW! Gorgeous projects as always from the team!

Craft, Card making & Scrapbooking mixed media challenge - Challenge 2 - Anything Goes

Welcome back to another challenge!
As always, the theme this month is 
Anything Mixed Media Goes

Our sponsor for 2022 is Polkadoodles and you can check out all the wonderful selection of Polkadoodles goodies in the shopMake sure you check out the POLKADOODLES store here!

SO, LET'S FIND OUT WHAT THE DESIGN TEAM HAVE MADE THIS MONTH!...

 Caroline - I made this tag using PD7526-Ruby Dog DaysPrint the image then colour with Copics. Fussy cut and layer onto the collaged tag. The tag background was created using flowers from stamp set-Hanging Garden-PD8048 and the sentiment is from the Little Kingdom digital sentiments.

NataliaIt's Nikky birthday this week so we've created all projects with her favorite color.... she loves turquoise!!! Me too, especially if I mix it with a tone of bronze color. This is the most beautiful combination of colors, isn't it ... in my opinion of course. I decided to do this time a canvas picture using Oddella Twig - Ickyink Art alternative digistamp colored with alcohol markers. To complete my canvas I used also acrylic paints, chipboards, glasses, and various stencils and stamps available on Polkadoodles website. I have had great fun making that project. Hope you like it!

List of the products:

 Irre: Hi, it's time for the January challenge. And for this, I created a Christmas card, it's never too early to start with them, especially if you had a lot of friends and family members to send them to. I had a lot of fun with this. I played with layers with different papers and my favorite mixed media element - art stones mixture. As decoration, I added poinsettia flowers. These are so beautiful!I'm also sad to announce that this is my last project for We Love 2 Create. Hope you all have enjoyed my projects I created. And I hope I see you all around at the web. BIG HUGS!

Caroline -  I Created a collaged background and Printed the Ruby Chic image, then coloured with Copics and Fussy cut. I Used a heart from stamp set Hanging Garden-PD8048 to decorate the collaged background and add some with 3d pads to add dimension.

Jane – Hello everyone! I have a slimline card to share today featuring one of the gorgeous new bunnies from the LOVE ALWAYS collection called CUPID LOVE.

Polkadoodles products used: Digi Stamp: CUPID LOVEPapers & Sentiment: LOVE ALWAYSClear Stamps: HANGING GARDEN

Merja - On my card I used an adorable Hyacinth image, coloured her with alcohol markers and then fussy cut her. The background I made with multiple stencils and medias. Firstly I used Heavenly Circles stencil with yellow and orange sprays, then I added some purple Distress Ink and yellow paste with Creepy Foliage stencil. The text is from Let's Hang Out Sentiments set and I taped it and the image with foam tape on the background.

Roberta: Hello and happy new year everybody!  Here is another nice project, a tag with a swaying doll ....To make it I used the Gingerbread basket Winnie North Pole digital stamp that I colored with Spectrum Noir Classique alcohol markers. The background was created with Distress Ink Sprays and I made the snow effect with white chalk. The colored digital was fixed with a spring to give the moving effect.



Natalia - Hello everyone! I hope most of us miss the spring and summertime. I miss it so much, for the beautiful sunny days. So, for my next inspiration, I have prepared an art journal page from the digital stamp Hyacinth - The Darling Buds colored with alcohol markers and placed on the first plan. Thanks to this stamp I created the rest of my vision of work. I love warm colours around me when the Spring comes. I've played a bit with watercolor paints to create my background and various, awesome flowers and mushrooms polymer stamps that can find on Polkadoodles' website.  It's time to bloom :) ... what more can be said?? That's my work this time, very warm, very mixed media...
Other products used: polymer stamps - Great Days Clear Stamp set,  Time to Bloom Stamps - Clear

Caroline - I wanted to create a mixed media feel to this Hyacinth stamp so I made a tag with lots of texture and layered up different bits of stash from my desk. I loved how this die cut mirrors the image with all the circles and just added some paper dots for extra dimension. 

WOW! Gorgeous projects as always from the team!
