Igloo Fun

Hello everyone! It's time once again for a fabulous Doodle Pantry release! Today Laurie is releasing  7 new stamps sets, 4 SVG cut files and 26 sets previously sold at CDS. So, pop on over to the Latest Releases for November 2013.

I am using the new set called Igloo Fun. Wow, did I have "FUN" making this one too! To make this card, I opened one of the PRECOLORED images with my Silhouette Cameo and traced it (I had to leave off the ground doodles). I then did a print and cut. Using Copic marker B00, I added a little more blue to the igloo. I knew I was going to be using glossy accents and I didn't want it cover up the light blue that was used and make it appear all white. I also used Frosted Lace Stickles glitter glue on the snowballs, penguins and walrus to indicate snow that had fallen on them (that is part of the precolored image). I used 2 of the digital papers that come with the set, one patterned image and one solid. The card is 6" x 6". I used a white card stock base, then added black card stock, then the patterned paper and then a 1 1/2" strip of the solid paper layered not quite in the center (it's hard to see because of all the other things added). I added a white satin ribbon across the middle and then added a bow to that. Next is another layer of white card stock, black card stock and white card stock embossed with Cuttlebug's Dot embossing folder. I added 2 large snowflake brads to the corners and once the image was dried, I added it to the top using pop-up dots. I printed the sentiment from the same set and used Spellbinder's Classic Ovals to cut them out and then distressed it with bashful blue ink from SU (which was a perfect match to the papers I chose) and mounted it in the corner.

Don't forget to head over to Doodle Pantry's Blog at 12:00 p.m. ET to play along with our challenge (DPDC40). You can use any digi stamp you wish to be eligible for the $15 gift certificate, but to get this month's stamp set Snowman Pileup for free, just for entering, you MUST use a Doodle Pantry image.
