Window Box Tulips

Hi everyone,  hope you had a fun St. Patrick's Day.  We woke up to 8 inches of snow yesterday, so I guess you could say our day was white instead of green.   Don't know about you but I am so tired of the cold and snow... so I made a spring card to share today.

I combined two Doodle Pantry sets, Tulip Wreath and Window Box Wishes.  The tulips are pre-colored, but I did add a bit of color to the white tulips.  I also colored the window and flower box with Copics.  The valance was paper-pieced with digi paper from theTulip Wreath set.  I also cut out extra tulip blossoms and adhered them to some of the tulips in the window box with dimensionals for a 3-D effect.  To carry out the theme, I embossed the front of the card with a Framed Tulips EF by SU!

I will be entering my card in the following fun challenges:
Love Create Challenge #107 -- CAS and/or Classy & Elegant
613 Avenue Create Challenge #63 -- Anything Goes with Optional theme 2D/3D flowers
Great Impressions March Challenge -- Spring Celebrations

Thank so much for stopping by and happy crafting!

Purse Parfait

Hi everyone, Sorry I've been MIA, been under the weather with a nasty cold, and haven't  don't much in the way of crafting.  Finally got to play with Doodle Pantry's new Purse Parfait set.  There's a great selection of purses and sentiments in the set... I swear I wish I had one of each style IRL.  I grouped three of the styles together and added some paper-piecing and coloring to the first and third purses.  I also cut out an extra flower and popped it up with dimensionals on the third purse.  The beauty in the middle is pre-colored and I only added some clear glaze to the white parts.  Although not noticeable in the photo, all hardware was highlighted with a clear star pen, giving the hardware a nice shine .  I also couldn't resist adding some bling to the centers of 2 of the purses.

I will be entering this card is the following challenges:
C.R.A.F.T Challenge 249 -- Mother's Day/Female
Outlawz Paper a la Mode Challenge PAM03082014 -- Off the Wall  I used a vellum overlay which i haven't done in ages.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Carousel Pig

Happy March!  I'm so glad to say goodbye to February... I've had it with all the snow, rain, and ice.  Hopefully, the month of March will be kinder.  Today is release day at Doodle Pantry, and I have a whimsical card to share which showcases  one of the new sets, Carousel Pig.

Carousel Pig is also the featured product for Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge 44 which starts  today on the Doodle Pantry blog at 11:30 AM.  All  participants in the challenge that use a Doodle Pantry image (not just a sentiment) will be emailed this set for free.  Here's a preview:

Now about my card, I used the outline image from the set and dressed her up with digital papers from the set as well as bright happy colors, flowers and ribbon.  Coloring with done with Copics.  I also used one of the digi papers from another new set, Grunge Wood Mini Digi Paper 4 Pack, to paper-piece the pole and seat.  

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
The Squirrel and the Fox -- Something Spooled (I used ribbon)
Crafting from the Heart Challenge 7 -- Anything Goes/Use Flowers
