Sponsorship for Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge

We're back again today with another challenge sponsorship!
Today we sponsor the Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge.  What an awesome sketch with so many possibilities.  I hope you can join in and play along at Tuesday Morning Sketches for a chance to win the Doodle Pantry prize!

Doodle Pantry's Creative Team member Pat Dadisman created this card using the sketch for us to be inspired.  She used the Caterpillar Swing image.
Isn't that adorable?  Thanks to Pat for stepping up to help me inspire you for today's sponsorship!   Go get inky and pull out your markers, we'd love to see you play in the TMS challenge this week!

Sponsorship for Paper Playtime Challenge

We are sponsoring the Paper Playtime challenge this week!   The theme is anything digital goes, so come on and pop on over to Paper Playtime to play along for a chance to win some digital coupons to various stores, one being from Doodle Pantry!

I created this card for us to be inspired.  I am using the newly released grave image from the He Is Risen digital set. Sentiment from the same set.
 Inside of card:
 Close up of image:
I colored the yellow sunbeams first and allowed those to dry completely before I colored the rest of the image. I added the other colors away from the sunbeams and blended with the waterbrush starting at the color and moving toward the sunbeams and then directly over the ends of the sunbeams.  If you are attempting this, it does take some practice.
I hand drew all the stitches, as I was creating late at night and didn't want to turn on the sewing machine.

Thanks for visiting us today!  I hope you found a little inspiration to go create.  See you at the challenges!

IMAGE: He Is Risen
CS/PAPER: Canson 90 lb. watercolor paper, Basic Grey Curio DP, CDS Hot Cocoa, PTI new leaf, white

Iris compliments and a sponsorship

Hello!   Today, March 19, we are sponsoring the Our Creative Corner challenge.
The challenge is to use something that you would normally throw away and get creative with it.  I hope you can join Our Creative Corner for a chance to win the Doodle Pantry prize!
My card doesn't follow the OCC challenge today, it is just something sort of quick that I pulled together.
I was trying to keep the iris one simple and clean.  Also, I am just now noticing the flyaway thread at the top right corner... whoops, I forgot to pull that thread through to the back.
I used the digital paper that comes with the Iris for the layer panel, and the pre-colored iris image.

SUPPLIES for IRIS card:
  • IMAGE: Iris by Doodle Pantry
  • CS/PAPER: white, digital paper included in Iris set
  • INK: Printer
  • ACCENTS/TOOLS: pearls, sewing machine, embossing folder, Spellbinders labels dies, CDS budding lilac ribbon, foam dimensionals

Thanks for visiting us today and don't forget to visit the Our Creative Corner challenge, as well as check back here tomorrow for the next set of releases!

    Sponsorship of Cupcake Inspiration Challenge

    Hello!
    Today we are sponsoring the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge!  They have a scrumptious picture of some cupcakes to be inspired by today.  I hope you'll go check it out and join in on the fun for a chance to win a gift coupon!


    On my little card below, I used the color image of the Watermelon Lunch and used the matching digi paper in the set.

    My printer smudged just the tippy top of the worms head though, I was a little disappointed in that since I only printed one of that image on the sheet.  I decided to go ahead and use it.
    The yellow paper is one of the digital sheets in with the Watermelon Lunch set.  I added some mini pearls in a few of the centers of the suns.

    SUPPLIES for WATERMELON LUNCH card:
    • IMAGE: Watermelon Lunch by Doodle Pantry
    • CS/PAPER: white, digital paper included in set, baja breeze, groovy guava
    • INK: Printer
    • ACCENTS/TOOLS: pearls, sewing machine, prima flower, button, Spellbinders ovals dies, baja breeze ribbon, foam dimensionals

    Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have gotten at least a little inspiration to go get crafty!

    Forget me not sympathy card

    I sure don't like having to make sympathy cards, but we need to make them, ya know?
    A vendor for the store my husband works at, his wife had cancer for a long time, and then she suddenly got put on life support and they didn't expect her to last long.  My husband knows the man pretty well and wanted me to make a nice sympathy card.  Ugh.  How hard!  You want to make something "nice" but at the same time, you feel like what good will it really do for someone just losing a wife of so many years?

    I hope it shows that we cared enough to think of him during his really difficult time of losing his wife.
    I used the Forget me nots on the front, and used the sentiment "I am so sorry to hear of your loss" from the Pasque Flower on the inside.


    SUPPLIES:
    • IMAGES: Forget me nots, sentiment from Pasque Flower
    • CS/PAPER: 9 lb. Canson watercolor paper, CDS wild ginger, CDS deep sea, CDS billowing clouds, My minds eye breaking free patterned paper
    • INK: Printer, inkpads mustard and marina mist, Tombow markers 946, 990, 526, 491, 177
    • ACCENTS/TOOLS: waterbrush, Spellbinders ovals and labels dies, embossing folder, sponge, pearls, satin ribbon, basic grey button, thread, sewing machine, pewter bird charm, foam dimensionals
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    I so appreciate your visit and comments!  They make my day and I am honored you would choose to visit me from time to time.  I hope you at least were inspired by some small thing today, and I wish for you happy crafting days ahead!
