Love Bugs

It's Doodle Pantry time again. There have been some changes made for releases and the monthly challenge beginning this year. Same great illustrations though! Instead of one great big release at the beginning of each month, there will be smaller new releases every 1st, 2nd and 3rd Tuesday of the month. The 4th Tuesday will be Flashback products. My release day is the 3rd Tuesday, but I will be posting samples throughout the month with the other releases as well. Today's card is using the new set Lady Bug Hugs, as well as two older svg cut file sets Hearts Galore and Card Cut 6.

I made this card for a congratulations on your engagement occasion. I think they are just adorable. The image, sentiment and designer paper are from the Lady Bug Hugs set.  I printed the designer paper on white card stock. The framing is 4 pieces, 3 of which are from the Card Cut 6 svg set. I did an offset on the background so I would have one more layer. I cut the rectangle frame from black card stock, I printed the focal image on white card stock (using a pre-colored image) and did a print and cut for the second layer. The third layer was cut using the designer paper I printed and the final layer was cut with black card stock. All of the layers were mounted onto basic gray card stock. The double heart is from the Hearts Galore svg set, which was cut with red card stock. For the final touch, I placed three black crystals on each corner of the white frame. Here is a picture of all three sets.

There is a 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.

IMPORTANT NEWS...each release day Tuesday, all of the sets released that day will be on sale for 25% off. No coupon is needed, but they will only be available at a discount for 1 day only. Also, every 2nd Tuesday of the month, one of the sets will be free with purchase for a short time.

We sure hope you enjoy these wonderful changes at Doodle Pantry. Be sure to check out the blog and the store often so you don't miss any of the fun!
