It's Release Day at Doodle Pantry

Happy November 1st....and that means that that it is time for this month's new release
at Doodle Pantry where you are going to love this month's new sets!

I have had the pleasure to work with Poinsettia  which includes outline as well
as color images, digital papers and sentiments. What a value!!!


My first card is a little on the rustic side, I used some burlap ribbon with the sentiment and love
this plaid paper with the crumb cake card stock.

My second card is my creation using an idea that I saw somewhere last year
where someone suggested using the pre made photo cards available
during the holiday season to create a fast and simple card.
I found a couple of boxes of these cards on clearance after
Christmas. I am afraid after cutting all of the foliage, my ornaments and hand
cutting the ornament tops, it wasn't very fast, lol!
The poinsettia background was perfect with this set. The card
has a couple of pieces of tape (and I added a bit more) which I used
to attach the gold metallic die cut.
I used Spellbinder circle dies and a Stampin' Up scalloped punch
to create my ornaments along with a ornament topper stamped and hand
cut from a Justrite set. I die cut several pieces from Spellbinders
Foliage die set to create my pine topper.

I love the way they printed the inside sentiment which enables the card to be turned 
vertically or horizontally. I hope to give this a try soon on
some of my cards.
