Bee Birdie

Happy Saturday everyone!  Sorry i haven't posted lately.  Finally got my mojo back and have a card to share today.  I love this cute Doodle Pantry birdie dressed up like a bee, and think the image works perfectly for Halloween for all the little ones on my list.  The birdie image is from DP's Bee Birdie set.  I added some digital paper piecing before merging the birdie on top of the darling beehiive from Lori McCroskey's Beeutiful Beehive SVG and PFD Cutting Up Shape File.  Coloring was done with Copics.  The background digi paper is also from the Bee Birdie set.  I added glitter to the wings and a touch of pastels to the sweet cheeks.  Just wish the photo picked up the sparkle on the wings.

I will be entering this card in the following fun challenges:
Stampin for the Weekend -- Anything Goes
Digi Haven -- Halloween
Daring Cardmakers Digital Dare Challenge - creations using digital elements, papers and images

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Deer Wishes

Happy Monday!  This cute image is from a set, Deer Wishes, (previously sold at CDS).  This set has been updated to include matching solid-colored digi paper and is now available for purchase at Doodle Pantry!

I used the pre-colored image from the set and merged the image onto one of the new matching solid-colored digi papers.  I also added one of the sentiments from the set.  Finishing touches include rhinestones, a cloud border and a Christmas tree made with dies from Taylored Expressions as well as a snowflake swirl sticker.

Just Wear Pink!

Hi All!   Laurie Wilson, owner of Doodle Pantry, created Just Wear Pink to promote Breast Cancer Awareness.   For a limited time this set will be free for one day only, October 4, 2013. Below is a preview of everything this fun digital set includes.  Click HERE to download your free set today (Oct. 4 Only)!

Now about my card... The image on my card was created by combining one of the shirts and a pair of the shorts from the set.  The shorts were paper-pieced in Photoshop. I also added one of the sentiments to the 'just wear pink' shirt. I embellished the card with a computer-generated sentiment as well as ribbon and a rhinestone heart that have been in my stash for ages.  The awesome sketch is this week's Sweet Sketch Wednesday #226.

Above is my take on a masculine birthday card using the new Doodle Pantry set, Old Watch.  I used the outline watch image and colored it with Copic markers; shading was done with a Tombow drawing pencil.  After cutting out the image, I mounted it to the card's circular die cut with dimensionals.  The patterned digi papers and sentiment are also from the Old Watch set.

I will be entering my card in the following challenges:
The Squirrel and the Fox Challenge 39 -- Happy Birthday
