October 27, 2012 Football Birdie

DoodlePantry Football Birdie, Spellbinders nesties, Prisma Colored Pencils, Sentiment TAC, Doodle DP, Football Leather CS Reminisce, Coluzzle Cutting Template

I made this card for DH's birthday which is Sunday 10-28 - when I saw Doodle Pantry   Football Birdies images I knew that was what I was going to use for his card. How much fun this was to put together.  My DoodlePantry Design Team Mate Georgia had made this in September and I emailed her and asked if I could "case" it!!  I used my "old" coluzzle circle template to cut the circle with on this z fold card - I knew I saved all those templates for a reason.  I colored the birdie shirt to "match" San Francisco 49ers as this is DH favorite football team and then wrote SF on his helmet and jersey.  The football DP that came with this set was perfect and I had a sheet of football leather cs that I had been saving for that "just right" occasion.  I hope he likes his card.

October 22, 2012 Jayson Raking

Whimsie Doodle Digi Image, Doodle Pantry DP, Farm House 6 x 6 Paper Pack, Tim Holtz Distress Markers, spellbinders Nesties, leaf button, 

This darling little boy raking leaves was a "free" image from Whimsie Doodles called Leaf Me - and isn't he too cute??  I colored him with Tim Holtz Distress Markers, (need some more practice for sure), but he would be fun to color with just about any medium.  I bought the Farm House Paper pack the last time I was shopping in my favorite scrapbook/stamp store For Keeps Sake which is just full of fun stuff.  I printed out the leaf DP from my computer using the DP from Doodle Pantry  this DP comes with the new set Autumn Star.  What a fun card to put together and he is on his way to a little guy receiving chemo.

October 19, 2012 Autumn Star DP

Doodle Pantry DP and sentiment, AMuse Leaf Die, Spellbinders die, washi tape, Amuse French Roast pearls, asst. cs. Memento Peanut Brittle ink 
Ever wonder what to do with those little scraps of DP that you have left over, I love using dies and cutting out the image then putting left over DP to put behind the cut out image.  I love how Doodle Pantry  often comes with the images in color, black and white and often 2 to 3 beautiful DP.  I usually print off the DP in full pages and I know it is going to match my colored image.  I loved this sentiment and thought it went with the card perfectly.

October 17, 2012 Computer Ants

Doodle Pantry Computer Ants, Spellbinders nesties, MS punch, black and white cs. Bakers Twine AMuse Studio

Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the color challenge over at OWH blog  and the challenge was black and white with just a pop of red or green.  I choose to use computer ants from Doodle Pantry  as I knew it would color up really well with black and white and my red was a border using MS punch, and a touch of red on the ants feet and on the computer mouse.

October 14, 2012 Autumn Star

Doodle Pantry Digi Image, Doodle Image DP, Autumn Leaf Brad Michaels, Votive Candle, Kraft CS - AMuse, Aspen CS Angel Company

When I saw this image I immediately knew I was going to use it for my Thanksgiving dinner table as "seating" cards with each family members name written on the card.  This was so easy peasy to make - I made a simple pizza box, used the DP that came with this beautiful digi set from  Doodle Pantry called Autumn Star which is one of the new releases for October.    This set comes precolored (love the precolored images) and Laurie (the owner) colors and shades her images so well.  I had picked up a box of votives at Big Lots last year so they will be used for my Thanksgiving table.  I can't wait to light the candle to see how the Autumn Star shimmers.   SALE yes I said  SALE - 25% off entire cart (except gift certificates) from now through Oct. 16, including new releases (which includes the one I have used above).

October 12, 2012 Sunflower Birdie

Sunflower Birdie Whimsy and Stars Studio, copic markers, handmade flower, Spellbinder nestie, button, DCWV DP

This little guy is ready to go to one of my chemo ladies - and he is sending smiles with his sunflower. This digi image is from Whimsy and Stars Studio   and I colored him with my copic markers.   Matted him on Spellbinders die cuts then on DCWV paper (from my stash), one of my home health patients made me several handmade flowers a little while back and it fit perfectly on this card.  She made me several in various colors and sizes so I know I will use them.

October 10, 2012 Pirate Birdie

Doodle Pantry Digi Image, Doodle Pantry Digi Printed paper, AMuse bling, Spellbinders nesties

Had a request for a special little boy that is having difficult days with his chemo and he LOVES Pirates so when I saw the request I knew which images I was going to use on his card - Doodle Pantry has so many cute images but I knew Pirate Birdie and Pirate Ship would work perfect for this little guy.  The images are precolored  (love using the precolored images)  cut them out with my Spellbinders hexagon shape - used the digi papers that come with the images and my card is ready to go to the mailbox.  This card is called a Joy-Fold card - I had not used this pattern in a long time and it worked perfect for the pirate card.

My husband is on a salmon fishing trip that he has been looking forward to for weeks - OK months, he is in northern MI. with 4 other guys.  I put this in his suitcase before he left - he didn't know about it so I will be anxious to see how he liked it when he calls home.  This was so much fun to color and this is truly my husband!!!

October 6, 2012 Happy Anniversary

Digi image from Whimsy and Stars (Dancing Love),  DP from Simple Stories, copic markers, asst. buttons Basic Grey, Spellbinders nesties, woodgrain cs AMuse studio, ribbon from The Ribbon Boutique asst flower and bling.

October 8 is my dear granddaughter and husband (Paige and Rusty) 1st anniversary.  I have this image in mind for a while now so made it up last night and I love how it turned out.  I made a square 6 x 6 card as I had so much "stuff" to get on the front.  Mabelle's images from Whimsy and Stars,  are so much fun to color and work with - what a talented artist.  I met Mabelle many years ago at an convention for The Angel Company and I am so happy she has continued on with her work.  I  think Paige and Rusty will like their card - (especially with a gift card enclosed).

October 4, 2012 Penny Black Autumn Tree

Stamp by Penny Black, colored with Tim Holtz Distress markers, Basic Grey DP,

I just got a new "senior" lady that I am going to shower with cards, Senior angels are a part of Chemo angels.  I stamped the tree by Penny Black with black Memento ink, then colored the leaves with distress markers, I enjoy using them and yes they are different than the basic markers,  there is a nice video by Tim Holtz if you think you would be interested in trying the markers.  This will be my first card to my lady to introduce myself to her.  This is such a rewarding endeavor to be a part of.

Today is New Release Day  at Doodle Pantry and once again Laurie has come up with cute cute new images, and I choose to use Quirky Polar Bear.  When I saw the image I knew what I wanted to do, I used the flatbox treat box pattern from SCS - (which is so easy to put together), used the DP from the set Quirky Polar Bear, I colored  the image with Prisma water color pencils, added some shimmer chalks for the snow and on his cheeks, and stickles in the snow banks.  This treat box holds chocolate kisses perfectly - I think this is what I am going to make for my office co-workers for the holiday party.   Go on over to Doodle Pantry and see the wonderful New Releases (including this darling Quirky Polar Bear).
