Yoo Hoo!

Doodle Pantry is having a mid-September release of six new digital stamp sets and one new e-cuttable file set. There are so many fun new sets to play with this month.

I am using the new What a Hoot set. I used a PRECOLORED owl for my card. Laurie also created a fence for this set. I wanted to use a paper pack she created a while back called Grunge Wood Mini Digi Pack, so I printed the wood designer paper on white card stock. I brought the fence image in my Silhouette Cameo and did a trace on it and then cut the fence using the wood designer paper. I absolutely love the way it turned out. I printed the owl and then hand cut it. The circle behind the owl and the grass are cut files from the Silhouette online store. I created the background using Old Olive, Summer Sun and Cameo Coral inks from Stampin' Up! and sponge daubers. I printed the sentiment twice and punched it out using a Stampin' Up! punch. I also used the same three inks to color the sentiment. The owl and the fence are adhered with foam dots to give it dimension. There are so many outlines and pre-colored images in this set, that it took TWO preview pages to show them all:


As a special incentive for this release, for a limited time, you can get the new Gift Monkey set free with purchase (September 16-24). This is another really adorable set. Wait until you see the samples some of the design team created with this set. I can't wait to make one.

Don't forget to stop by Doodle Pantry's Blog and enter the DPDC50 monthly challenge. The challenge runs each month from 12:00 p.m. on the 1st through the 24th. You can use any image you want to be eligible to win the $15 gift certificate. But, to be eligible to get the free stamp set, you must use a Doodle Pantry image (not just a sentiment). This month, all eligible entries will receive the Cheer Spirit set.


Thank you so much for visiting my blog. Please take a look at the other Doodle Pantry Design Team member's blogs and see what they created for you!
