Me and Doodle Pantry....

Hello everyone, so happy to see you stopping in!

Many of you that have visited in the past remember when I was on the Design Team for Doodle Pantry and how much I have always been a fan of Laurie's images. So I was thrilled when she asked me to Guest Design for the month of November. 

I was so happy that I have created three cards for the release today of Laurie's new images for November!

My card above uses the new "Pineapple and Coconut" set. I used the outline and colored it myself with Spectrum Noir markers, I love coloring although I do wish I were much better at it.

I also used coconuts from the same set along with "Palm Tree" to create a fun look to this card.

I enjoy merging digital images to create something just a bit different from what it started out as, this is 3 of the color palm trees overlaid and resized to create a grove. I also printed them again and using my Cameo I traced and cut the palms so that I could pop them up with foam tape. Don't you love this sentiment that comes in the "Pineapple and Coconut" set?

I also made something with the new "Igloo Funset, so many cute images, sentiments and papers included in this one!

I am using each of the 3 elements from the set in this one, lol! What a fun card to cheer someone on this winter. I again printed the color image of the igloo and animals twice, cutting one of them to place atop the one that I printed directly on the design paper. 

If you are new to Doodle Pantry or digital images in general I hope you will stop by the store and take a look at all of the inspiring creations by the rest of the team using this month's release and/or stop by at the DP Blog where you can see more cards using DP images and join in the challenge for this month(starts at noon today). Just for entering you will get the new release "Snowman Pileup" . There is also a free with purchase set from November 1-24 called "Vintage Fan" . Hope you have time to check it all out.

Hugs and Happy Day.....

Linda Anderson said...

Patti, how fun to "see" you again!! Your cards are adorable! I must say, your second card really caught my attention. Not only because of the added dimension, but because of the Walt Disney quote -- I leave in 3 weeks for a trip down!!!!! Can't wait.
