Bath Ants - Soap Extra

Ok...come have to admit, this is one of the cutest digital stamps ever! Seriously, how adorable are these ants taking a bath in a cup being heated by a cup warmer? I just love how Laurie (owner of Doodle Pantry) comes up with these amazing sets.

This card is using the pre-colored image from Bath Ants, which was just released this past Tuesday. I was going to color this myself, but I just loved the color combination she used here. The frame is a bubble frame (Design ID #62847) from Silhouette's online store which was cut using my Cameo. I first printed the teal paper that comes in the Bath Ants set onto white card stock and then cut the frame from that. I also used purple card stock from my stash. I then did a print and cut with the pre-colored image using white card stock. Some of the bubbles were done with purple card stock and a couple with white card stock. Once the focal image was assembled, I added white, purple and teal pearls (yes, I had teal pearls, but I did use Copic marker V09 to color the purple ones). The image was mounted onto white card stock, where I had printed the sentiment from the same set. I had a bath set from Jolee's Boutique that was in light blue and light pink. It had this little towel set, so I used my Copic markers and colored the light blue towel using BG49 (teal) and the light pink towel using V09 (purple). The yellow duck is also from the Jolee's Boutique bath set. This was a FUN card to make. Here is what you get in the set.

Don't forget to join us in our new challenge on the Doodle Pantry Blog called Ants in My Pantry Digital Challenge. It begins on the 1st Tuesday of the month and runs for 3 weeks. You must use a digital image, but it does not have to be from Doodle Pantry. One winner will be selected on the 4th Monday of the month and will receive a $15 gift certificate to Doodle Pantry.

  5. I've yet to purchase a silhouette, but this frame may make me do so. It's so fun and I too love the colors of this image. I actually just entered my own card at this challenge using a pre-colored image, which I hardly ever do, but these are done so well I couldn't resist. Thanks for sharing this with us at Send a Smile 4 Kids. Good Luck.

  6. Super cute. I have never used a pre-colored image myself, but this is lovely.

  7. Susan, I looove it! Those towels are so perfect. Love the bubble frame and all the little details you added. Thanks so much for joining in at The Mod Squad Challenge blog!

  8. This is crazy cute and adorable. I enlarged the best I could to figure out how you made the circles. I want to case this but how in the world did you do the circles? I agree, Laurie nailed it with this one.
