Pear-fect Friend

Here is another card I created with the April release of Pears & Raspberries Color Plus from Doodle Pantry. I absolutely love this set.

For this card, I took two of the pre-colored pears and put them together. I then removed one of the leaves. Everything was pre-colored for me, and the background paper is from this set too. I layered that with lime green and then a white card stock base. I used the lacy ovals from Spellbinders and then free-hand cut the scalloped background behind that. The sentiment is also from this set and that was just cut into a rectangle and sponged lime green ink around the edges.. I added acrylic green flowers for my bling.

Treasured Friend

It's time once again for a fabulous new release from Doodle Pantry. I am so excited to once again be able to show you what Laurie has created for us this month. There are only a few items being released today, but there will be another release in the middle of the month, with even more fabulous digital stamp sets for you to play with.

I chose the new set called Old Trunk for my sample card. Look at all these amazing images you get with this set.

And here is the card I made:

I went with a treasured friend theme for this card. I also used the pre-colored version of the trunk image. I normally do my own coloring, but Laurie did such a fantastic job on this trunk, I didn't want to change a thing. The designer paper in the background is also from this set. I absolutely LOVE her digital designer papers. This was layered onto a white card stock base. The frame was cut on my Silhouette Cameo and is from the Silhouette online stored. I cut 4 thin strips of rust paper and weaved it through the slots. I glued this onto white card stock and then onto rust card stock. I deliberately left only the sides of the rust card stock showing. I printed 2 of the trunk images. I left one on white card stock and layered that onto rust card stock and then black card stock to go into the center of the frame. I popped the 2nd trunk image up and draped a short strand of pearls (this was glued down in several places) over the side and added jewels around the bottom and side of the trunk. I also added very small black gems on the top of trunk to mimic the rivets. The sentiment is also from this wonderful set and I cut it with Spellbinder's classic ovals and layered it on rust. I finished is off with clear jewels all around the oval.

A new digital challenge will also begin at noon today and run until April 24th over at the Doodle Pantry blog. The rules are simple...just use a Doodle Pantry image, not just a sentiment, and enter your card using the inlinkz button. There are lots of images on Doodle Pantry's Freebie page.
