Catching up with Doodle Pantry!

So I realized today as I was looking through my files that I’m way behind in posting as I haven’t posted the Valentine Cards made with Doodle Pantry images! So here is trying to catch up after the holidays…just in time for Mother’s Day card making frenzy to start!!

Valentine Monster Truck

One of my regular’s at work wanted Valentine cards for her 3 boys. This is what I made the 5 year old…..it was the perfect image for a 5 yoa boy in my opinion!! I used I {heart} sketches #37 as my inspiration.

She also needed 2 teacher cards. I only had one made so I made this one….which is similar to the other one I made a couple years ago. This card was inspired by Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 sketch #43.

Teacher for ewe

Another lady at work need a card with a walrus on it so this image, Critter Friends, at Doodle Pantry was perfect!! I used the Card Sketch #41 at Sketch n Scrap for my inspiration!

Walrus Valentine

And the last one I made for my husband! I never tell him enough how good looking he really is….so I thought this was a good way!

Stud Muffin

Snowflakes

I needed a card with “sparkle” so I could play over at Cupcake Inspirations Challenge as they are having a 300th post Bash with a TON of prizes. There will be 3 inspiration photos….one today – Sparkle, one on Tuesday – Color and one on Thursday – Confetti. You have until the March 14th to enter the three challenges. Deedee Digis is a sponsor and her prize package is part of Color challenge so that one is a must to enter if you want to win a $25.00 gift card to Deedee’s Digis. She just put some super cute Easter digital stamps in the store.

I went looking in blog land looking for inspiration. I can’t even remember how I found Tamytha’s blog with this beautiful card but I did and it inspired my card. I think you can see I took the basic ideal of the card but also made it my own.  Yes, I fussy cut all those snowflakes out!! Not sure I will make multiple of these but I do like how it turned out. I couldn’t decided what to put on the front tag so I thought it would make a good Christmas card for a teacher. Added blue jewels in the center of the snowflakes for my “sparkle” and my card was done!

CHALLENGES:

1) Cupcake Inspirations 300th Bash Challenge – Sparkle – add sparkle to your card

2) March Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Favorites Category – lift a card or sketch you have saved in your favorites.

and a few Doodle Pantry stamps then you will be ready for Valentine’s Day!! Which is not far away since it is January 1, 2014!!! Happy New Year!!

Today is first Doodle Pantry release of 2014!! I got to work with 2 digital image sets this month.

First up is Kissy Lips. I made two cards that are similar because I couldn’t decide what I liked better!

Kissy LipsPucker Up

I used MOJO Monday 325 sketch for my inspiration. I also decided to to make them shiny by putting Glossy Accents on them. They went from dull to shiny just like real lips when you add gloss or lipstick to them!

The second card I made used an SVG file – Hearts Galore and a re-release of Loving Critters Digital Image (use to be a Clearly Digi Stamp). The cool thing about the Heart Galore SVG file is that it also come with JPEG and PNG images too. And to make it even sweeter Laurie is offering Free with purchase between Jan 1-9th.

Just For Ewe

Inside: Happy Valentine’s Day!

This is the second card I made using the sketch below. This time I stayed pretty true to the sketch.

I’m on vacation but have been non stop crafting or running errands…..doing all the things that pile up while you work!! Not complaining as I have a lot of request for cards right now so I’m glad I’m on vacation and have time to make then and ENJOY the process.

Enough about that check out the JULY NEW RELEASES at Clearly Digi Stamps!! I’m only previewing two stamps that my husband designed but had several ideals pop up when I saw the other images…just ran out of time!!

The first one is from the Dino’s Digital Image at Clearly Digi Stamps:

CDSPDDinosKD

Dinosaurs

I remembered I had this OLD Basic Grey paper that was dinosaur theme so I took it out to see if it would match. This paper was just perfect for it….but as I started working on it I felt it looked like a grown-up card not a kid card. But I went with it anyway and really like the card BUT then Lori reminds me I could of used “Older then Dirt” and made it a birthday card for an adult!! Duh…why didn’t I think of that!! I used Seize the Birthday Sketch #20 as my inspiration.

CHALLENGES:

1) 613 Avenue Create Challenge #28– Birthday

2) Seize the Birthday – Anything Birthday Challenge

3) Card Makin’ Mamas Challenge #72 – Monochromatic

4) Crafty Creations Challenge #230 – Pun Fun

The second card has to do with School…I know seems to early to think about school but actually its not that far away here in the mid west. School starts around Aug 12 so I asked my husband to do a School Theme set for all those BACK TO SCHOOL projects. This is what he came up with – Time for School Digital Image

TimeForSchoolProofSheet

The other DT members made wonderful cards with the Book Worm and Boy with Backpack so I decided to use the Apple with Worm. I’m actually going to send this to my friend who is a teacher and has been having some “trying” school years lately. The school she is in is in a rough area and the stories she tells is amazing. The school is getting a new principal this year and that can make or break a school year for a teacher. She is an amazing teacher with over 25 years experience so I thought I would send her some encourage as the school year starts next month. I used the Deconstruction Sketch #107 as my inspiration for the design.
