An Extra BONUS release from Doodle Pantry! WHOOOO WHOOOO

 New product release announcement:  There were SO MANY products on my October 1st release list, that Laurie from Doodle Pantry had to take a few out for a mini product release on September 16th!  Please be sure to visit the site to see 4 adorable new fall images and 2 new religious products.
The release set that I'm SO HAPPY to show you is called WhataHoot and it is fantastic!  There are so many components included and the coloring and shading is awesome.  With Lauries' png formats, I was able to layer the owls, extra branches, sentiment over top of some blue sky digital paper that I had.  You can see a glimpse of the patterned blue paper from the set for the inside.  I think when I added all the flower eyelets to the front of the card along with the green vine ribbon, it just made the whole front just POP!  I did reinforce the section that I was going to punch with additional cardstock but it still lays flat.  There is also gold Stickles around the Owls eyes-Hope you enjoy and will be encouraged to use any of these "bonus" releases on your next project!

Squigglefly wants to see some BLING or EMBOSSING

This week I'm using some Stickles on my image to join in the BLING or EMBOSS challenge hosted by Squigglefly.  The image is by James Horvath called Secret Agent set, surrounded by a Half-Moon Rectangle created by Charlene Mitchell.  I just love this Spy (reminds me of Get Smart and the 60's).  Then the fake nose/mustache/glasses image from the Spy set is added to a text box from my computer for my Birthday Wish.  The accents are a group of assorted buttons and a great stitched manly ribbon down the side.  These are some of the monthly new images and there are plenty of others launching also-be sure to check them out at the SF shop and see all the wonderful artists they have.  Join in the weekly challenge-you have until Sunday to play and possibly win a free image!

Another Look at the CHEER SPIRIT release from Doodle Pantry

 I'm really getting caught up in all the different ways you can use this new release set called Cheer Spirit from Doodle Pantry!  Again teaming up that with a Top Note Swinging Z-Fold Card Blank from The Paper Cut in Grape Jelly, I've used the pompoms from the set-used 2, one for the base just fancy cut and then the 2nd one for cutting out accent streamers.  THEN I adhered purple glitter over all!  Love that Bling!  The orange front accent is one of the solid "papers" featured in the set as well as the striped paper.  I just love the action on these cards!  The sentiment on the inside is from the set-the "magnificent" is from one of their other DP sets.

Come join us on the monthly challenge and if you use a Doodle Pantry image, you will get this set FREE!!  WooHoo!

Cheerleading is spotlighted at Doodle Pantry! Get your FREE Set!

 Doodle Pantry has come up with a great cheerleading release that has oodles and oodles of color combinations that might work with your child's Team Colors!  It's called Team Spirit and I couldn't wait to get out the Top Note Swinging Z-Fold white card blank from The Paper Cut to start my creation!  The great thing about digitals, as you all know, is the versatility of getting JUST the right size of images.
As you can see, the Top Note label swings as you are opening the card.  The sentiment inside, School Pride, also comes with the set.  I used a solid blue cardstock from my stash and the striped paper is from the Cheer Spirit set.  Also on the megaphone, I used crystal Stickles on the inside for some bling.  Remember: 
**The featured product is ONLY FOR participants who have created a project using a Doodle Pantry image (not just sentiment), will be emailed this set for FREE.** 
That's right--if you use a DP image in our month long Challenge-you will get this set FREE!!  Come on and let us see your creations!

What's the BUZZZZZZZ>>>>> around Seems a Little Sketchy this week??

For this 2-week challenge at Seems a Little Sketchy, we're being sponsored by Imagine That! with some great images and background papers.  The sketch we all based our cards on is shown here and for the winner of the challenge, Imagine That! is offering 3 digital images for you~
I was able to digitally layer the background papers to fit the sketch and then fancy cut the "Bee Boy" and mounted him with pop dots--hadn't made a 5x7 card for quite a while but you about needed to in order to squeeze all the neat items into the card!  There's Stickles on the Bee Wings and the Hive.  In the inside, again digital layering except for the bee ribbon that I've been dying to use!  Hope you will check us out and get an entry together so that you have a chance of winning!  We'll see you there!

New BABY card using Gigi Giraffe from Doodle Pantry!

It seems like there's always a demand for BABY cards among my friends so when I saw this cute set at Doodle Pantry called Gigi Giraffe...well, I just knew I would be using it a lot!  It's got such a fun image, cute papers and great sentiments!  Because they're pngs, I can layer the whole lot to build interest.  I used the green solid "paper" to create a ribbon, layered the saying and added a felt cut flower and some dew drops for a pop of bling.  On the inside, again layers with another flower.  Doodle Pantry makes it so easy to get your cards done.  Remember there's a challenge going on now and here's the information about that!

It's Happy Birthday for the STAR in your Family at Squigglefly!

 This week's challenge at Squiggle Fly is to make a card with a STAR on it, or make  your card STAR shaped. (We'd love for you to use a Squigglefly image, to be prize eligible it's required, but everyone is welcome to play along.)  I've used an image from Sandra Caldwell called Ladybug Gal--she has so many others in the SF shop!  I paired her with this great Happy Birthday paper I had that's LOADED with stars.  I used diamond stickles on all of those as well as her fairy wings.  The abbreviated version of Happy Birthday to You fit in just perfect over the 2 die cut stars that I used in the corner!  A truly FUN card to use for that Special Day.  We hope to see you with an entry on this weekly Challenge!
