Doodle Pantry Day Ahead!

Just a quick reminder to all of you that Doodle Pantry will be releasing their new images tomorrow! I can't wait to show you the cute images I had to play with!
To hold you over I want to share a cute card that I made using one of her other images available through the Doodle Pantry store.

Isn't it the cutest image?
I used dies and my Cuttlebug with wool felt to cut out the vines. The flowers were made with a tiny punch from Michael's. Oh,... and I used wiggly eyes too! Stay tuned for tomorrow...AND maybe another post later tonight!

New challenge time - quench your thirst!

Over at Jellypark Friends we are showcasing two new digital images and our challenge round. Our challenge this time is to use an image or embellishment, etc. that will show us how you "quench your thirst". I used a delightful image from Jellypark of an English teacup to create my teabag holder.

I adore tea and have several cups everyday! My MIL would always gift me with a bone china tea cup for my birthday each year. She was Canadian and loved her tea too! I so cherish those tea cups! Each one is different and each one beautiful... My MIL has been gone for years now but I smile fondly each day when I have my "cuppa".
My image was printed off three times in different sizes then colored using Copics and a glitter pen. I made a pouch so that I could place a teabag inside. A small tag (punch and sentiment stamp from SU)was added and some pretty ribbon finished it off. I thought this could be added to a gift or even become its own little gift.
Please check out the challenge at Jellypark Friends and join in the fun!
I would like to enter the following challenges:
Divas by Design - anything Goes
Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes

Hang in There...

I wanted to show a new card that I created today using the new release set from Doodle Pantry called, "Float Yer Goat".
I love this darling set and chose to color my image. Check out the set at Doodle Pantry and see what I mean!
I used a tutorial that I found on line for a "twisted card". What a fun and easy card it was to make and the possibilities for its use are card,enclosures (like I have done). photographs, tickets for shows, etc. There are two on the outside (which I chose to place my image over) and one on the inside.
I colored with my Copic markers and used the digital design paper that comes with the goat set. I used a sentiment from TLC for the inside. A few flower stickers and it was done. Here are some pics...

Forever Friends - Anything Goes
Make it Monday - Always Anything Goes

Color Challenge

Today at Lia Stampz we are sharing a new digital image and a color challenge for you.
Here is the picture for the colors:
Aren't they wonderful? I decided to try a new technique that I found on YouTube. I took an ordinary water bottle; cut off the bottom,cut into all of the grooves rounding them as I cut. I then used my heat gun to bend the pieces into a flower shape. I painted it using only 1 layer of paint. I love how it looks like glass!

The image is entitled, "Lia Working". I colored it with my trusty Copic markers. The paper I used (printed DP) is from Recollections. An envelope was used for the yellow background as the color was a wonderful match! I placed some "candy" dots that I colored with a white marker for the polka dots and then popped up on pop dots. The paper behind the image is from a pack of Girl Scouting paper from K & Co. I stamped the sentiment using a stamp from Michael's $1 spot.
Check out all of the yummy creations made by our design team and then join in the fun! You might just win this cute image!

Jellypark Friends "Bug Me" Challenge !

Over at Jellypark Friends we have a new challenge for you this week as well as two new digital images!
The challenge is "Summer Bugs". We would like to see bugs on your creation!

My card is done using one of the two new images; the sweet dog on my card. I printed out the image twice and reversed one of them making it smaller. I also popped them up with foam tape. I think it looks like a mother and her pup now! I love the sentiment I have used, and created the tree and sun using a Cricut cartridge called "Simply Charmed". I used an embossing folder with my Cuttlebug to make the embossed background on my blue paper.
Check out the challenge and also the other new digital image that is being showcased today!

Doodle Pantry New Release Day!

Happy August 1st everyone! Did you say "rabbits" when you woke up this morning? It is an old English tradition that on the first of each month upon awaking that you say "rabbits" to bring you good luck for the month! I sure did as I can use all the good luck there is! haha!
Now onto the new releases at Doodle Pantry. I was given a new PDF release entitled "Holiday Birdie"to use and what fun I had! I used some of the papers and the images included in this file to make a few Christmas cards and gift tags. Here they are:

I didn't embellish them too much as I wanted you to see the basic images. This set comes already colored so it will be quick and easy to get those holiday cards done!
Let's see what you come up with!
So...anywho... go on over to Doodle Pantry and check out all of the yummy new images that Laurie has created. You will be so happy you did!
