Cool Cash

Hi everyone!  Today's card combines two Doodle Pantry digital sets, Cool Cash and Tea-rrific -- I combined the outline piggy bank image and a sentiment from Cool Cash, with digi paper and flowers from Tea-riffic.

The piggy bank image was colored with Copic markers.  The inside of the ears were paper pieced, and I decorated the body of the pig with pre-colored flowers by merging them on top of the piggy bank image. I think this cute piggy bank image is perfect for decorating cards which include a check or cash.gift.  In this case, I added a pocket die cut to the front of the card and mounted the image on top.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Delightful Weekly Challenge -- Bloom (include a flower)
In the Pink Challenge #42 --   Digital Delight (use a digital image and more pink than other colors)
Creative Moments Challenge 40 -- Anything Goes/Girly

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you are enjoying your day.

Love Note

Hi All!  Sometimes, you never know where you will find inspiration for a creation. Today, my card was inspired by an extra sentiment I found in my scrap bin.  It was perfect for combining with a new Spellbinders typewriter die I have been dying to use.  The sentiment is from a Doodle Pantry set, Heart Sheep.  I adhered the typewriter with message on top of a layer of burlap.  Embellishments include an epoxy flower and silver beads on the typewriter.

This card was a snap to put together!  Hope my husband likes it!

I will be entering  this card in the following challenges:
Card Makin' Mammas Challenge CMM85 -- Earth Friendly (recycle/reuse)

Thanks so much for your visit.  Have a wonderful weekend and a Happy Easter

Petite Bouquet

Good Morning, everyone.  This lovely bouquet of flowers is from a new Doodle Pantry digital set called Petite Bouquet.  This set is the featured set for this month's Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge 45.  If you play along with the challenge and use a Doodle Pantry illustration, you will be emailed this set for free! This challenge runs through April 24, 9 PM EDT, so there is still time to enter the challenge.

Inspiration for my card came from Aud Sentiment Challenge #104, which Doodle Pantry is sponsoring.  The challenge theme is "for a friend".   I used an outline image and a sentiment from the Petite Bouquet set to create my card.  After coloring the image with Copics and colored pencils, I coated it with a VersaMarker pen, and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  After the embossing cooled, I  fussy cut the bouquet before adding to the oval die cut.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

Thanks so much for visiting today.  Hope you have a wonderful day!
