Something for Everyone!

Welcome to the August Doodle Pantry release. Can you believe that July is gone? Everything is just going way too fast for me. But one of my favorite days of the month is the 1st because I get to show you some of the awesome new releases from Doodle Pantry. Laurie has something for everyone this month. I worked with two sets this month. The first set is Lemon & Blueberries.

I didn't use the lemon image but added the yellow paper and background to bring out the blue. The image, sentiment and papers are from the new set. This was a bit of a challenge. I usually make my cards 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 but I just got carried away. This is a much bigger card. It's difficult to read the sentiment but it says "Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above. James 1:17a". I colored the image with Copics: B24, B29, B00, YG09, YG17. I used Spellbinders Picot Edge Circles and Standard Circles and added some glitter glue dots to the corners. The pearl flourish is from Zva Creative. The image is cut from the tag die from Clear Dollar Stamps.

I am entering this card into the Through the Craftroom Door challenge of anything goes.

The other new set that I worked with is called Pumpkin Peeps. There is just the cutest little panda and pig peeking out of a pumpkin. I used the pig on my card but I already have the panda printed out to use later.

I'm going to send this to my son in Boston. I haven't seen him in a while and I think he'll get a kick out of it. Again the pre-colored image, sentiment and designer paper comes with the set. I used Spellbinders Standard Squares and Lacey Squares to cut and layer the image. I added some black brads for accents and the sentiment is cut from the die from Clear Dollar Stamps.
I am entering this card into these challenges:
Don't forget to visit the Design Team and see all the other wonderful projects with the new release stamps. And how about a sale? Laurie is offering 25% off EVERYTHING in the store, even the new releases. How awesome is that! And don;t forget about the August Doodle Pantry challenge that will start at noon today. I hope you have enjoyed the new release projects! Have a wonderfully doodley  day! Blessing!

Not one but two beauties. Love the blue and yellow -- it's such a great color combo and really makes the blueberries pop. Adorable pumpkin pig card -- the sentiment is so fun!

Donna, these cards are wonderful. Your blueberries look good enough to eat. I love the way you dressed the photo too. And what can I say about the pumpkin pig card...just adorable!

Two wonderful and quite different cards. Love your presentation of the blueberries and the bling flourish. The pumpkin piggy is adorable and I love the card shape.
