OK, over to the challenge - let's see what the team have created for you today! More great projects from the team this month!

Irre - Hello everyone.
Time for another Halloween project on a cardboard with the digital stamp Pandora witch Halloween which I colored with Copics. For the cardboard, I decorated it with cardboard pieces, twine, paper flowers, keys, cogs, plastic moon, flower pot stones, and art stones. I painted it all with black gesso. I colored it in with ink sprays and Inka gold. I added the digital stamp and a sentiment from the Boo Halloween sentiment pack. Finally, I added some splats to the cardboard.


Samantha - I used this lovely Octavia Wistful digistamp - she's one of the older images in the store but I LOVE this range so much and they can be used all year round just by changing the colours. I forgot about our theme of no red or green but the colours suit this so perfectly I just went with the flow and got carried away. Hope you love it!


Rachael - Hello, polkadoodles fans. not long now before the festive celebrations commence, so get ahead with this really simple design of card. I ink-blended a background and then using stamps called Winter Noel I used black ink to stamp over the top. super simple but very effective!

Tinne - Hi everyone! For this challenge I made a slimline card using the gorgeous Isadora Witch cute Halloween pre-coloured digital image. I think precoloured images are so great to create cards with! I cut out a basic slimline rectangle with a die, and applied orange ink on it, using a zigzag stencil. I splattered some water and ink on the background to add some interest. The sentiment I used is from the Halloween Trick or Treat Printable Greetings set. I combined it with a ‘hello’ sentiment die from my stash. A reel of how I made this card will be available on my Instagram page.


Bea - Hello! I'm so happy to design for Polkadoodles this week! I used polychrome pencils to color the Spooky Kitty Cat Pumpkin digi and for the background a spider web stamp and Lindys pigments to give color. As a sentiment, one of the phrases from the Halloween Trick or Treat printable Greetings set.
Nat Martin - Hi everyone! As a real lover of Halloween celebration I come again with one “terrific” project šŸ¤£. For this occasion I have created a “creepy" bookmark for a friend of mine that loves reading and loves Halloween celebration. I used these digital designs: Matilda Witch Halloween Digital StampHalloween Trick or Treat printable Word ArtBoo Halloween printable background paper digital bundle

  • Hat and dress: BG78-BG75-BG72-YR09-YR07-YR04-YR02

Deborah - Hello all! For this week's challenge, I created a 5" x 7" faux stepper card using the Matilda Witch Digi , Autumn Fall Digi Pack , Boo Halloween Printable Sentiments , and the Pretty & Pink Paper Pack .

Natalia Kuzak - Autumn is here and the beautiful colours of this season are around us too. I've prepared today a tag with a cat in pumpkin from a pack of Hocus Pocus Witches Halloween printable digital stamps colored with alcohol markers. I used splashes of Distress Inks as a background.

Samantha - It is Digi Choosday time again, and the DT team was asked to make projects featuring Halloween. I was excited for project because I am pretty sure Halloween is my all-time favorite cardmaking season. Yes… I love Halloween cards even more than Christmas cards, but it is close. For my project, I chose the haunting Oddella with bag and I paired her with images from the Poppy Flower bundle. I Copic colored both Oddella and the poppy flowers in shades of purple and dusty violet and fussy cut each image. For the poppies, I colored a few select petals from duplicate poppy images that I then fussy cut and adhered to my main image with foam tape to create depth and dimension. I placed everything onto a dark ink-blended background and added a border using paper from the Halloween/Autumn Paper Heaven 1 digital paper bundle and a sentiment from the Halloween Trick or Treat printable Sentiments bundle. I hope you find this card as spooky fun as I do.

OK, over to the challenge - let's see what the team have created for you today! More great projects from the team this month!

Mayte CastaƱeda - hello everyone I'm so excited to be part of the Polkadoodles team! I made a cute Halloween Tag for this first post - I love this Witch digi so much! She is from the Spellbinding Witches collection and is called Cordelia - I look forward to following your blogs and hope you will also follow my social too!...

Merja - This time I made a glittery flower tag. I used the Blossoming Rose stencil and glitter paint pens to create this beautiful flowery background (sorry, the glitter doesn't show very well, it's a pain to photograph). I think the pattern itself is so beautiful that I only added a congratulations text stamped on vellum (using the Sentimentals stamp set) and a black satin ribbon.

Maz - for my Autumn/Fall Colours project, I created this tag using the Sunflower Cart from the NEW Autumn Fall Halloween Treat Bundle I added extra pumpkins from the Ghastly Ghost Halloween Bundle. I decorated with a few leafy dies from Super Sprigs Die and branches from Iced Branches Die All details can be found on my blog

Irre - Sharing today a new project made for Polkadoodles. As a focal point, I used the digital stamp called Serenity Fairy kisses. I colored her with Copics and then cut her out. The background is made of watercolor paper. I colored it in with Distress ink, water splats, and stamps from Best day ever. I decorated with sewing threads, purple flowers, die-cut out leaves from the Super sprigs cutting die. I added a sentiment and added some white splats with white acrylic paint.

Rachael - Hello crafting friends!. Rachael here again with some more inspiration. You don't just have to make cards with your crafty stash. how about using some stamps and some card to make bag toppers for cute trick-or-treat bags. these could be for a party, or just to hand out. I used a stamp set called Fab-boo-lous but you could use any image for any occasion.

Tinne Peeters - Hi everyone! For my first challenge as a DT member I chose a ghost as a Halloween icon. The Boo Ghost Halloween Gnome precoloured digital stamp is perfect for it! I created a full moon background using stencils and Distress Oxide inks. I cut out a black grass border using a die, and inked the top of the grass blades with blue ink. The sentiment I used is from the Halloween Trick or Treat Printable Greetings set. A video of how I made this card will be available on my Instagram page, I'd love it if you'd follow me and say hello!...

Natalia - Halloween has been on our blog lately, so today, I have another card with pumpkins for this occasion. I used a giant pumpkin from the new collection - Ghastly Ghost Halloween. I used Boneshakin Halloween paper as a background, and additional images such as leaves, bats, and small pumpkins are from the Autumn Fall Halloween Treat collection. Everything was colored with alcohol markers.
