 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!
