Feathery Friends

Good Afternoon, everyone.  Just a quick post today to share a bright, happy card on this rainy afternoon.  I used an image from Doodle Pantry's Feathery Friends to make my card.  The digi paper I used to paper-piece the feathers and make the green fishtail banner is from the same set.  I also added some digital coloring to the image and embellished the circular panel with some Spirelli string art.

BTW, Doodle Pantry is having a sale!  Everything in the shop's Patriotic Category is marked down 25% through July 5.  Click here to go directly to the site. 

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Weekend!  Here's a Father's Day card I made for my husband.  I used Sketch 112 by i {heart} sketches with a twist.  The fun image is Super Birdbrain by From The Heart Stamps.  This is a great set -- besides the fun image there are lots of sentiments included.

For my take on the sketch I changed things up a bit by using a square base rather than a rectangle.  I merged the image on top of digital paper; colored the image digitally; then die cut.  To make the sentiment panel, I first cut out the sentiment; added a half circle and a gold star before mounting the sentiment beneath the image.  

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope all the dads have a great day on Sunday.

Prickles Says Hello

Hi everyone.  I'm finally posting my card for The Digital Stamp of Month Challenge by From the Heart Stamps.  June's Free Stamp of the Month for this progressive challenge is Prickles Says Hello and it's the cutest!

 I digitally colored and paper pieced the image; and also merged the image on top of a digital striped background.  Since the colors I used are bright and bold, I kept the design simple and only added a few embellishments including a paper bow and buttons.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Enjoy the rest of the week!

Twain Quips and Gazania

I am happy to announce that Doodle Pantry is releasing 4 new digital sets today -- including Twain Quips,  I used one of the quips as the main focus of my card; I think it works as a wonderful sentiment for many occasions. The bright and colorful background digi paper as well as the flower are both from Gazania Color Plus set, released earlier this year.  

I cut an extra flower out by hand and added it to card with pop dots for extra dimension.  I also included a die cut swirl and punched leaves.  Finishing touches include rhinestones and sequins.

I will be entering my card in the following challenges:
Aud Sentiment Challenge 133 -- Bingo (I used row 2 - Pattern Paper, Digi Stamp, Paper punch.) 
Through the Purple Haze Challenge -- June-Use Bright Colors
The Paper Shelter Challenge 206 -- Make It Colorful
Crafting by Designs -- June Anything Goes Challenge

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

Ants in my Pantry Digital Challenge #6

Hi All!  Just a heads up to let you know that a new AIMPDC #6 has been posted on the Doodle Pantry Blog .  My card for the challenge combines 2 Doodle Pantry sets, Dahlia Color Plus and Basil Plant Color Plus.  Sentiment is from Baking Bear Updated.

I merged the outline Dahlia in front of the pre-colored Basil Plant image.  The dahlia blossom and bud were paper-pieced digitally.  I also colored the dahlia's bud and stems digitally.  Although barely visible in the photo, I cut out parts of the dahlia image and layered them on the card with pop dots for extra dimension.

I will be entering this card in the following challenge:
A Gem of A Challenge #145 -- Flowers
Hiding in My Craft Room HIMCR #201 -- Freestyle
The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge TT052815 -- Anything Goes
