Woodsy Black Eyed Susan card

Wow, third card in a month, I can't believe I've had time to fit creating in!  I've got a couple more projects in mind that I want to do before the end of the year as well, I sure hope I can keep this momentum going.

This card is for a friend's birthday this year. 
I used the Black Eyed Susan set.   It's a whopper 5x7 size!  Had to dig in my spare envelope drawer to see if I had managed to collect one that size. Found a 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 envelope, a little big, but beats trying to make an envelope that large.
Here's the front.  I really love the canvas-ey woodsy pine color paper I found at Hobby Lobby.
I watercolored using my trusty Tombow markers and a waterbrush. Printed the image on 90 lb. watercolor paper.
Here's the inside.  The pattern paper is from the same digi set.
Supply list:
Image: Black Eyed Susan
Pattern papers: From Black Eye Susan set and woodsy pattern by Paper Studio
Cardstock: PTI dark chocolate, white, and Summer sunrise, 90 lb. Canson watercolor paper
Tombow markers and ink: 452, 177, 245, 985, 899, PTI terra cotta for sponging edge
Tools/Accents: Spellbinders labels 2, Crealies die CLCF11, Martha Stewart border punch, PTI ribbon, linen thread twine, aged copper bitty brads, sewing machine, foam dimensionals

Thanks for visiting!  I hope you are inspired to create.

Send A Smile 4 Kids Sponsorship

Good morning! Today Doodle Pantry is sponsoring Send A Smile 4 Kids and their theme is anything goes for kids. We've got great inspiration for you, first up is:




Drop on by Send A Smile 4 Kids and give their challenge a try. If you use a Doodle Pantry image you can enter our challenge as well (hurry our challenge ends on the 24th!)

It's the pumpkin time of year

Mmmm, it's that time of year again... pumpkin creamer, pumpkin bread, pumpkin pies, pumpkin coffee, pumpkin cream cheese, pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin cake... pumpkin bacon?  Ummm, maybe not, unless you're pregnant and just have to have your pumpkin and bacon too.
Oh, and a pumpkin card too!

(and just a reminder that there's only 3 more days left to get the Pumpkin set that I used on my card below for free with ANY purchase at doodlepantry.com!)

I just had to watercolor up the Pumpkin for a thank you/inspirational card I need to send to a friend.  I wanted it to just pop off the paper in a bright pumpkin color.  I wanted this baby to shout "I'm the best pumpkin in the patch!".  Oh and I wanted to capture all the rich fall colors.  The pattern papers that come with the Pumpkin set helped with that.

I made a 5-1/8" square easle card.
I printed the image on 90 lb. watercolor paper.  Watercolored the Pumpkin using Tombow markers and a waterbrush.  Sealed my finished image with acrylic sealing spray.
Here's a close up of the pumpkin.  I sized it to about 2-1/2" across so that it would be easier to color the vines.
The sentiment on the front and on the inside both come from a set called Merciful & Good. Here is the inside.   A nice little space for a note.  The sewing around the hole was difficult, but I think it really added a special touch to the inside.
 And here's a whole shot of the front.  I tried to get a bow or button on the front, because I just love bows & buttons, but this is the second card in a row that I could not manage it due to all the flowers and ferns I keep adding to my cards.
Here's my list of supplies
PATTERN PAPER: digi paper from Pumpkin
CARDSTOCK: Papertrey Ink Dark chocolate, ripe avocado, Canson 90 lb. cold press watercolor paper
TOOLS: Spellbinders Labels 9, Spellbiners Grommet Tags, Spellbinders Ribbon tags (I think #1), Martha Stewart Hydrangea punch, Crealies CL CS 12, sewing machine, waterbrush, Scor-pal, appropriate adhesives, sponge
MARKERS & INK: Tombow markers 925, 933, 985, 126, 177, 969, 452, PTI dark chocolate for sponging
ACCENTS: Sticky pearls, PTI ribbons, foam dimensionals
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Thank you for stopping in for a visit.  I hope I was able to inspire you in some way to go get crafty and bless a friend with a handmade somethin-somthin!  Have a blessed weekend!

More illustrations coming to Doodle Pantry

Hello!   There are some changes coming soon and I wanted to share with you.

Many of you probably already read over on Lori McCroskeys blog that she has made the difficult decision to close her shop (Clearly Digi Stamps/Clear Dollar Stamps), for which I have illustrated clear stamp and digi images for over 4 years.  I sure admire her for making this decision, as she wants to focus on her family and kids home schooling.  WOW!  You know God is going to bless her for making this change in her life!
If you'd like to give Lori a visit on her blog, I am sure she'd love to hear your encouraging thoughts.
She did mention that she will not leave the crafting scene, she will be creating SVG cut files that will be sold through Doodle Pantry!   I am really excited about this, as designing cut files is secondary in my personal preference, to illustration.

You may be having some questions, so I was hoping to address some ahead of time.

HOW DOES THIS AFFECT illustrations Laurie Wilson has done for CDS?
In case you didn't know, everything I have illustrated for CDS over these past years has remained copyright of CDS during this time.
However, upon her shop closing on September 30, EVERYTHING I have ever drawn, whether for clear stamp design (retired) or digital format for CDS, will be transferring full ownership/copyright to Doodle Pantry on October 1, 2013.
This means there is NO gap in time where those images are free to disburse in any way.  You may not share with your friends or resell.  They may NOT be made into embroidery designs without a license/approval by me.  If you purchased anything illustrated by me, Laurie Wilson, that was for sale at CDS/Clearly Digi Stamps, please make note that ALL terms of use immediately transfer to the Doodle Pantry terms of use on October 1, 2013.  You can find those terms HERE.
BUT THERE WILL BE A GAP IN THEIR AVAILABILITY TO PURCHASE!   Anywhere from 1-8 months!  If you need some of those images NOW or during the time when they may not be up for sale yet at Doodle Pantry, get them before Sept 30 for 25% OFF at the CDS shop HERE. The coupon code is SEPT30CLOSING.

WHERE CAN I buy the digital illustrations after CDS closes?
They can't all be ready for sale at Doodle Pantry on October 1, 2013, I don't have enough time.  But each month, Doodle Pantry will add the listings of a select group of those illustrations to the Doodle Pantry shop.  I will be putting up a schedule list on October 1, so you can know when which images will be for sale and available at Doodle Pantry.  For October, 28 products of Fall and Christmas Holiday themes will be re-released at Doodle Pantry, so I'm off to a pretty good start in getting them moved over. BUT IF YOU WANT 25% OFF, you may want to SHOP NOW AT CDS!


WILL ANY of the illustrations CHANGE?
The outline images themselves will NOT change, however, if there wasn't digitized coloring, it will be added with digi papers before becoming available at Doodle Pantry.  Some of the images might be re-digitally colored if I feel the images were a little outdated as far as the coloring.  I'll make sure to give all relevant details when I post about them, so that you'll know whether or not something you have, may have changed, or may have new coloring or digi papers.

WILL ANY OF THESE ILLUSTRATIONS be offered at a discounted price?
From now through September 30, EVERYTHING is 25% OFF at Clearly Digi Stamps, so if you want a great deal on my CDS illustrations today, go ahead and get it now, SHOP HERE through Sept 30!
Once these illustrations transfer to my shop Doodle Pantry on October 1, they will be treated as if they are a Doodle Pantry release, and will only be discounted when I have a sale coupon or other category special. There's no guarantee on the Doodle Pantry future prices, so right now, taking advantage of the 25% off at the CDS SHOP would be a wise decision if there's something you want.

WHAT ABOUT CLEAR STAMP illustrations that have been discontinued?
If there were images I illustrated to be clear polymer stamps for CDS, and they have not been offered in digital format as of yet, DO NOT DISMAY, I will likely eventually get them all transferred to digital format and offered for sale at Doodle Pantry!  Just sign up for our newsletter or sign yourself up for the blog email updates and you will be notified when those become available.

WHAT IF I REALLY WANT A DISCONTINUED CDS stamp image by Laurie Wilson in digital format sooner rather than later?
I will gladly accept your requests via email!  I already have several images that currently are no longer offered in clear stamp form, and were not yet made into digital form, that I really want to have in digital format.  Email me here --->  laurie at doodlepantry dot com.  If I get enough requests for any one item, I will try to put it at the top of my list to get it made into digital format and up for sale for you soon.

IF I PURCHASED Laurie Wilson illustrations in digital format at CDS, will I have to re-buy them from Doodle Pantry?
No, of course not.  You can simply keep what you have and move them to a Doodle Pantry file folder on your computer.  Also remember to link up to Doodle Pantry when you post a creation using those images, so that people reading your blog can get directed to the new place where they will eventually be found.
Also, you will need to make sure you are abiding by the Doodle Pantry terms for them as well.

NOTE: There will be a very FEW cases where I will have either added digitally colored images and digi papers, and/or re-colored the outdated digital coloring.  In those cases, since more work was put into them, I cannot offer them completely free to you.  BUT, I will put a lower than normal price for a limited time, to make it affordable for you to buy and get the newly updated images within the product.  Make sure you sign up for notifications by blog or newsletter so that you will not miss any limited time offers of reduced pricing of Laurie Wilson CDS illustrations being re-released at Doodle Pantry.

After October 1, 2013, CAN I USE CDS IMAGES THAT WERE ILLUSTRATED BY LAURIE WILSON for any of Doodle Pantry's challenges?
YES!!!!  If the product preview from CDS says it was illustrated by me, or has the filename CDSLW at the beginning of each picture, then it will be considered a Doodle Pantry product!

WHAT IF I'M NOT SURE WHO IS THE ILLUSTRATOR for something I purchased at CDS?
Just email me the preview sheet, and I will let you know whether or not it is my image.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I hope I have addressed some questions up front, but if anything is still unanswered, feel free to email me with any concerns and I will get an answer back to you within a few days.
May you have a blessed weekend!

Who wants WHITE pumpkins?

Hello and happy Friday the 13th!    Guess what I forgot!?   WHITE pumpkins in the Pumpkin set.  Silly me.  We NEED the white ones, they just fancy things up.  I quickly managed to get some white ones digitally colored and put a set together.  I am loving these!
If you have not yet placed an order in September, just add the Pumpkin set and the white versions are included!

HOW DO YOU GET THE WHITE VERSIONS if you already placed and downloaded your order?

If you already placed an order and PAID for it (confirmed orders only) between Sept 5 and today, (not a challenge DT order) and you added the "Free w/purchase" Pumpkin set, ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS THE FOLLOWING to get your White pumpkin addition:
  1. Login to the shop.
  2. Go to account maintenance.
  3. Find your list of orders and click on your last order.
  4. You should see the White pumpkin download added at the bottom.
  5. Click the green icon next to it to save to your computer.

WHAT IF YOU PLACED AN ORDER BUT FORGOT TO ADD THE FREE w/purchase Pumpkin?

Since I had to look at every order since September 5 anyway, if I didn't see the Pumpkin added, I went ahead and added it for you!  And yes, it will include the WHITE ones too! (Except not for challenge DT orders where money was not spent)

And you simply follow the same instructions above to get your Free w/purchase Pumpkins including the white ones.

I hope you enjoy your weekend and stay safe.   It is my goal to inspire your creativity with my images and digital colorizing, even if my images do not suit your own needs.  May you bless someone special with a handmade card or gift!

ABOUT MY CARD
I know someone who has a birthday coming up that happens to also fall on a wednesday, so I wanted to make this card using Camel Fun digi image. She'll be out of town on her day, so I have to mail it early.  Hope she likes it!
It's a 5" square card and I made a 1/8" wide fold to accommodate the flower on the inside.
The main image is on the Spellbinders Labels 11 die.
For the flowers, I used Crealies CLCF05 die, sponged the edges and curled the petals and stacked them.  The white flowers are teeny tiny prima flowers.
 I used my Tombow markers (526, 977, 026) and a waterbrush to color the image printed on 90 lb. watercolor paper.

I used some very OLD Close to my heart papers called Simple Pleasures, I think. If I'm wrong about that name, someone feel free to comment and correct me, but I bought A LOT of this paper!   Way more than I know I can use in my lifetime.  But I didn't know that at the time.  I really have no idea what I was thinking other than I simply loved the colors and the vintagey patterns.
