Remember you need to claim your prize within 2 weeks as per the rules in the sidebar. Also please allow a few weeks for the sponsor to get back to you with any prizes. I'm sure you can appreciate that they are very busy.

So let's get onto to what the team have made this week.  We are on the look-out for participants to join us for three month Guest Designer positions - if this interests you, please add GD after your name on your entry.  Good luck!

Ruth:  I've used Nurse Annie digi stamp, coloured with Promarkers and then added to a star shaped card.  I've made a wobble head card by printing the image twice and then making a spring from coiled wire.  This was made for a work colleague as her daughter graduated from nurse training.


Hello.. I am Billie A.   This is my card using the Hello Spring image from Polkadoodles. I colored the image with copics. I went over the letters and butterflies with Spectrum Noir sparkle brush. I used card stock and backed the image after I used Spellbinder rectangle die. I then used a Paper trey ink tag and stamped the "baby" by Taylored Expressions. I finished with a brad.  You can see my card and more over on my blog. Just click on my name. Thank you.


Hi! Hanna here with a card using the image Jasper Kitty Balloon - Fuzzypuffs by Poolkadoodles. I coloured this cutie with Distress Inks and added some Stickles in diamond on one of the present and some Glossy Accents on the Balloon. I used a lot of my scraps for this card and sew some decorative seams on my sewing machine. I decorated the card with some lace, roses and pearls.


Hi, Dawn here with my Hello Spring card, I kept it pretty simple! Its coloured with copic markers, I sponged the vellum with purple, punched out the butterflies and added rhinestones. 


Hey there ~ Pam here, sharing my project card using Polkadoodles Hello Spring.  These cuties don't need a lot of embellishments to send the happy greeting.  I printed the image on Neenah 110# card stock and used my Copic markers for coloring.  I used the Memory Box Matinee Rectangle Nesting dies for the edges of the image and plaid matting.  I mounted them on a coordinating orange card base. 



Hello Margaret here with my card - I have used paper, sentiment and Mermaid Kisses digi stamp from Polkadoodles Winnie Mermaid Mermazing super bundle download.  I  have coloured the mermaid with markers (you can also buy this mermaid as a single stamp).  I look forward to seeing everyone's entries


Hello! Kathy here sharing a card that features a wonderful image from  Polkadoodles named Winnie Mermazing. I colored and fussy cut the sweet Winnie, then created 3-D shadow box card for her
(instructions found HERE.) It includes a porthole created several circle dies, silver cardstock, and upcycled aluminum liner from a can of coffee and silver brads. The sentiment is a freebie (found HERE.)

 

Hello! Kathy again. I had such a hard time picking a Polkadoodle image this time, that I picked TWO! This one is from a set named Party Little Dude which includes the adorable Dude plus lots of extra sentiments and papers! I added some bling with stars cut from silver glitter cardstock. The inside sentiment is cut from one of the papers in the set. So fun! 

 

Hi! Lou here and I have used the image Jasper Kitty Balloon - Fuzzypuffs by Polkadoodles. I have coloured the image with Copics and then adhered the coloured image to a card from Envelope Solutions. I have also stamped a sentiment from Power Poppy. More details are on my blog post, which you can find here!



Hi, Silke here. For my inspiration card I used the image Party Little Dude from sponsor Polkadoodles. A design paper and a Piece of blue cardstock was attached to the card. The image was colored with Copics and fixed on the card. The embossed sentiment was placed under the motif. Finally, different stars of silver and red glitter paper were positioned.


Just fabulous as always!

Ruth:  I've used the very fab Beach Friends!  Coloured with Promarkers plus papers from my stash and I found some paper ribbon to use too and added a cocktail charm, tied on with embroidery thread.


Hello. This is Kym here. This week I decided to make a Christmas card as this fun image called "Brighten the Holidays" spoke to me. I have used the image and a sentiment you get with the image.  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and added Stickles glitter glue to the penguin's mittens and also the earmuffs of one penguin. I used a light bauble stamp for the corner and coloured them in red and green like the image and went around all the lights in Glossy Accents.  I wanted the image to do the talking so I have just added backing papers, banner dies and some Nuvo pearl drops.



Hello.. Billie A. here with my card using the image called Wine friends.   The image is colored with copics. I used a white and silver gel pen to add dots to the hat and under blouse. I added some Spectrum Noir sparkle brush to the wine and eye glasses. I used Lil inker stitch die and added to a scrap of card stock then onto a piece of designer paper. I finished with some Pretty pink posh jewels.  You can see more on my card by clicking on my name.



Helloooooo, it's Jackie here. I used the image Tea Time, from our fabulous sponsor Jan's Digi Stamps. Thjis is just one element from a beautiful set. I coloured with pencils. Cut out with an oval die. Then I used corrugated Kraft card and a spotty dp. A sentiment finishes.  We love to see your work!  You can see more details HERE.


Hi there, Margo here and this week I have coloured  Puttin' on the Ritz from our fabulous sponsor Jan's Digi Stamps.  I have coloured the cute penguin with my copic markers and I have to admit the minute I saw the digi, I instantly knew what I wanted to do with it. I have used some older backingpaper from Magnolia and some flowers from my stash.



Hello fellow colourists, it's Sarah here sharing a fabulous image from our Sponsor's Espresso Yourself set. I used Pro/Flexmarkers to colour this fun image.


Hi, Jolanda here from the Netherlands, the country that is not known for hot summer, but it is hot right now!!! Anyway, I got this lovely image Wine Friends from our sponsor. I really loved this one - it's so very true LOL


Hi Carol here using Tea-Time from Jan's Digi Stamps coloured with promarkers and layered twice,placed onto a die-cut frame and an oddment of embossed card for the background.


Hello! Kathy here sharing a card that features a wonderful image and sentiments from  Jans Digis set named Boy And His DogI colored the boy and his buddy with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. The cloudy sky was added with decorative chalks, a handmade stencil and a makeup sponge. A patterned paper background, that resembles denim plus a few leather-looking tickets and mini stars fit in beautifully with the vintage feeling of the image. So fun!



Just fabulous as always!

We would like to invite Janine to be a Guest Designer for three months!
Please contact me HERE and we can get you on board!

Ruth:  I've used the cute Make Mine A, coloured with Promarkers then added to a star shaped card (my own template) and to use up some of the scraps I have sitting in my bits box, I used an X Cut die for the stars.  I hand wrote the sentiment banner.


Hi friends, Michele here - hope today finds you doing well! I used this adorable Chibbi Make Mine A digital image and although I think it's supposed to be a boy, you can visit my blog and understand why I had to make it a girly image. By the time this posts, I may have added some lace to the shirt. :D


Helloooooo, it's Jackie here. I used the image Chibi Make Mine a from our fabulous sponsor StampersDelights. I coloured with pencils. I used First Edition Dp's. I completed with a sentiment and gems.  You can see more details HERE.


Hello.. Billie A here with my card using the image called Chibi make mine a.  I colored the image with copics. I used Spellbinder die to cut out and DCWV designer paper. The sentiment is from Sugar pea and I used Tech. Tues. banner dies. I used Stampin up ink. I finished with some Nuvo drops. 


Hi there!  Marie B. popping in as a Guest Designer for Team D for the next three months!  I also chose this cute Chibi Make Mine A image to work with, and a mixture of alcohol markers were my medium of choice.  Patterned paper is from Colorbok "Hopscotch" 12x12 pad.  The sentiment is from The Paper Company "Greetings" stamp set.  I added some shine details with a white gel pen.


Hello fellow colorists, Julie here.  I also colored up the darling Chibi Make Mine A...  I took advantage of the magic of digital images, and cropped the image, choosing to use own the top portion of this cutie.  I just love his hair!  I used Copic markers to color the image, and papers from AMB Illustrations.  The sentiment is from an acrylic set from Tonic Studios.  Excuse me while I go pour myself a cuppa!


Hi there, it's Margo, I have coloured up Chibi Happy Birthday this week from our fabulous sponsor Stampers Delights.  I have coloured her with my copic markers and wanted to make it look as if she's sitting in the park so I have added some grass with tiny flowery dots and tried to create some bushes in the background to make a more natural transition to the sky.  I really like to try to create a backround with the stamps.



Hello - it's Helen here with my card for this week's challenge.  I've used 'Chibi Make Mine A' from Stampers Delights which you can find here.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and kept the card layout very simple adding a sentiment and some gems to finish my design.


Hi Dawn here with my card for Stampers Delights! I have a fantastic sentiment that was so perfect with Chibi Happy Birthday. She is coloured with copic markers and after embossing the background I added stickles for some added glitz! The inside says Happy Birthday! 



Just fabulous as always!

Ruth: I've gone for Summer Holiday and coloured it with Promarkers.  I've used a vintage map (from the 1960's) for the background and the die cut words are from Clearly Besotted.



AuntySue For my card I have made a Birthday card for a neighbour who is celebrating his 50th
I have used Gardening Gus. I have used Promarkers to colour the image and inks for the sky



Hello.. It's Billie A. here using the image called Bob's Balloons.. Can never have too many masculine birthday cards.. I colored this cute image with copics. I went over the balloons with Spectrum Noir sparkle brush. I used Art impressions sentiment and Simon says happy birthday. . The background is from Club scrap and sentiment pieces are scraps.


Hello dear Crafters!  Marjeta here! Today I would like to show you a  card with a musical motif. There are currently no concerts for a wider audience, so Davey's picture is the right motif. I painted it with Promarkers. The Davey's  image and the sentiment are from digi stamp collection of  Dr Digi, who is  sponsoring this challenge at Colour Crazy.


Hi Dawn here with my Dr Digi's Roll on Christmas Gnomes!  I make Christmas cards all year long and I've started making CAS ones, love how they look! I coloured the gnomes with copics, the red and grey really add dimension, as well as popping most of the gnomes up! 



Hi! Vic here - I'm sharing two cards this week. I used the Comic Sentiments set from Dr Digi.  It's a great set of digi stamps. Theres 6 that you colour yourself, and then some colour ones too! AND at a bargain price! I have used two of the colour-yourself images to create 2 cards. I coloured with my alcohol markers...The first card : I remembered I had some sticky-back stuff with the retro cassette tapes / stereo / walkman designs and thought this would work well with the digi. The second card: I used a retro backing paper and a thin border edge of red. The digi is on 3d foam. I went round the edges of everything with an alcohol pen as I wanted a cleaner edge than using ink pads. I fussy-cut  the balloons from a dovecraft paper from my stash....



Hello! Kathy here sharing a card that features a fun image and a few comic sentiments from Dr. Digi set named Made for Each Other. I colored the love birds with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen then perched them on several layers of patterned paper. I also colored two of the comic sentiments and attached them to the card front to embellish my computer-generated comic sentiment, “Your love is alive!” 
(Note- I did print the comic sentiments in greyscale so that I could color them to fit into my cards color scheme.)



This is Elizabeth using a great Dr. Digi image that would be perfect for father's day if your Dad is a golfer. I paper pieced a plaid on the golf bag and then colored and shaded in grey. I added a metal buckle and ribbon and then metal brads. The background was done in Distress Oxide Ink sprayed with water for the reaction. This image is called Golf Clubs.


Hi Janet here, I've used the Dr Digi image Cuddly Critters Panda. I've coloured it with Polychromo pencils. I've designed it to look a little oriental as pandas come from China. The frame and bamboo are die cut.


Just fabulous as always!
