Tulips in a Bottle

Hi All,  When I saw this week's Sweet Wednesday Sketch 194-5, I couldn't wait to play.  It's very clean and quick, perfect for whipping up some Easter cards.  I combined  2 Doodle Pantry sets, Tall Tulip and Bottle & Jars, to create a vase of tulips for Easter. 

I colored and shaded the bottle with Copics before coating with Liquid Glass and a sprinkle of glitter.  Unfortunately, the photo doesn't show the dimension or how sparkly the bottle is.   I also used Copics to add some coloring and shading to the pre-colored tulips to make them my own. 

I will also be entering this card in some other great challenges: 
Crafting by designs -- Anything Goes
City Crafter Challenge Week 147 -- All that Glitters

I really had fun making this card.  Have a great weekend and hope you get some time to craft .  Many thanks for stopping by!

Bandaids and Tissues

Hi All!  Here's a get well card I just finished using two new sets from Doodle Pantry. -- Bandaid and Soup and Tissues. The Bandaid set is a new freebie and includes both outline and colored images, sentiments and digi paper.  I used one of the digi papers from this set for my background layer, and also paper pieced it to the borders of the tissue box... (This image is from the Soup and Tissues set.)  Coloring of the tissues was done with Copics.  I also added some sponging (blush blossom ink).   

I used the bandaid image to spell out the word, HEAL, and merged it over a larger bandaid.  After grouping them together, I merged them in front of  the tissue box.

Off to make some homemade chicken soup.  Will be delivering the soup and card to a neighbor, who just came home from the hospital.

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!

Hoppy Easter

Hi everyone, sorry It's been a while, but the past few days have been filled with preparations for company, football, and celebrating the Ravens' Superbowl win.  Life is finally back to normal, and I have a fun project to share with you today.  

Since I've been yearning for Spring, I thought I would get a jumpstart on Easter projects.   This month, Laurie updated one of my favorite Doodle Pantry sets, Cozy Gazebo. Click here to see my original post .  

The new updated color set is called Gazebo Color Plus, and it includes both colorized and outline images, as well as digi papers.  I merged the colored gazebo with digis from other DP sets --  bunny image and sentiment are from Easter Bunny and the Easter eggs are from Quirky Bunny.  What fun!  

I will be entering my card in the following challenges:
Delightful Challenges -- Think Spring (pastel Colors)
Crafty Ribbons Challenge 38 -- Anything Goes with Ribbon

I hope everyone enjoys the rest of the week.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Love Star

Happy February!  Today's release day at Doodle Pantry, and I am thrilled to share a card I made using the new Love Star set.  This is the third in a series of decorative star images that Laurie has created.  I love each and every set and hope she continues to make more for other holidays and seasons.

I colored the image with Copic and added glitter to the central heart.  The digi papers that I used for the star and bow are also from the Love Star set.  The sentiment is from SU!/MDS.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Lady Anne's Challenges -- 5th Stamp Anything Goes
The Perfect Sentiment (PSC64) -- Anything Goes with a Die-Cut
Twisted Tuesday Challenge (2TC42) -- Show us what you got-Anything Goes

Hope everyone has a fabulous February!  Thanks so much for the visit and Happy Crafting!!
