So let’s see what the design team have made for us.

Tanya - Hello there.  I love flowers so much and there's many many of Nikky's wonderful collections that have flowers on them in all shapes, sizes and colours, some which are textured too.  For this week I've decided to use the flowers from the Eden Collection and the bird too and combine them with two of the coloured digis from the Octavia Moonfly Collection to make a little bit of teacup art work.  I don't know if you've seen these on the internet before but there's a step by step on my blog and here are some photos to show you how I made it.  (1) resizing the flowers and printing them out (2) decorating the teacup with the moss (3) and then decorating with the little toadstools, birdcage, mini shrink plastic Octavias and the bird from the Eden Collection.  If you want to know how the teacup seems to be floating above the saucer you'll have to pop over to my blog to find out what it is.  Hope you like it.




Lynda - I just love the new release so decided to use it for this weeks challenge. Sticks and Bones is awesome!! and it's available on a CD or as a instant download. Everything you see on my card (except the gems) is within the collection. The elements I used are just the tip of the iceberg, such great value. Enjoy this week's challenge x

Julie -- What better collection to use for this "In Bloom" theme than the beautiful Rose Budd CD collection? Or Rose Budd Digital Download? The pre-printed image, papers, and ticket are all from the Rose Budd collection. Simple, yet elegant!




AnjieI've used the beautiful Serenity collection for the image, sentiment and papers. You can also buy the image on her own HERE. Isn't she just adorable! The flowers and leaves are from the Picknix 3 Nordic Winter collection. More details on my blog.

Monica- I love flowers and when they start to bloom is the perfect time of the year. For this week make I´m working with 3d flowers from Work & Play 10.-Country Life Full Collection. The inspirational sentiment is from Cherryblossom Lane Collection.




Fiona -  For this weeks challenge I have used a image from the work and play 9 love and kisses cd the image is called The  proposal. the backing papers and embellishments are from the cd the large pink flower was created with papers found on the cd

Jane – Hello! I used the ‘bloomin’ gorgeous’  OCTAVIA MOONFLY BIG KAHUNA BUNDLE on my project this week, making a bouquet of flowers for my mum! Awwwwh! J  Have a happy crafty day! xxx

Aunty Sue - Hi for my card I am featuring a Digi image off the Work & Play 9 Love & Kisses available HERE. I love how all Nikkys collections have some Digis that you can feature as a main image so used this lovely bunch of flowers. The papers and sentiment is also from the collection. There really are some hidden gems in these collections if you look close enough. Used a mixture of Promarkers and Lyra Rembrandt polycolour pencils to colour the image.
Gail - For 'In Bloom' theme is week, I went for the fabulous Work and Play 9 - Love and Kisses collection, available on Cd-Rom or as a Digital Download. The vintage style flowers, the Love text and wings (on the mannequin) are all from the Work and Play 9 - Love and Kisses collection.

Audrey  I love the brand new Sticks & Bones Mammoth Dinosaur Download Bundle from the moment I saw and of course had to buy the full download collection!!  For today's creation, I chose the images called Just Sittin Here/Dinosaur and Sticks & Bones Dinosaur 5, which can be found in the full collection and in black and white on the Sticks & Bones Dinosaur Image Bundle.  The papers are from the collection too.  I've combined the with the frame using Gimp and coloured with Copics.  The flowers can be found on the collection too and also here .  Full details of how I printed the flowers out can be found on my blog.  I sure hope you like it, I know you will love this new bundle!! 



Helen - I thought the 'Serenity Fairy Wishes' bundle was perfect for this challenge.  You can find it here on the Polkadoodles website.  I chose a digi stamp called 'Serenity Dancing' which is also available here individually.  She has flowers on the skirt of her dress and in her hair and I picked background paper from the download to match.  I also used some polka dot paper from the download and used the same paper to die cut a flower.  The circular sentiment is also from the download.

Great makes from the DT I’m sure you will agree.....
