Smartypants!



Hi everyone!  You are in for a treat today because Doodle Pantry has released a bunch of new digital sets.  Since I couldn't choose just one of the new sets to showcase, I decided to merge a little something from 4 of the sets into one card.

First, I filled one of the new colorized jars from Bottle & Jar COLOR with a bunch of paperclips from Pencil & Paperclip COLOR plus.  After grouping the paperclips and jar together, I merged the jar on top of a sheet of lined paper from Notebook Paper (free with purchase for a limited time, Apr 16-24).  I then merged 3 pencils, also from the new Pencil & Paperclip set on top of the jar and paper.

I should mention, at this point, that all formatting, grouping and merging was done in a Microsoft Word document.  After I got all the images grouped the way I wanted them to look, I merged dotted digi paper "behind" the images.  I just love the look of the dotted digi paper peeking through the jar!

After cutting out and mounting my image to the card's base with dimensionals, I added my new (free with purchase) Smartypants sentiment on top.  Design includes dry embossing, banner die cuts, and metal embellishments including a 'real' paperclip.  What fun! 

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Challenges 4 Everybody #18 -- Anything Goes
Sparkle N Sprinkle April Challenge -- Use a digital image
Opus Glue Challenge #154 -- Color Challenge (brights or pastels)
Pile It On #15 -- Embossing
Card Crafter's Circle Challenge #70 --  Die Cuts  and/or Dry Embossing ( I used both.)
Card Mania Challenge (MC) #18 -- Punches and/or Die Cuts
Make It Monday -- Always Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you enjoy your day!!
