Doodle Pantry February Release Day

Hi Everyone:
Just popping in with my card for Doodle Pantry Release for this month. This release is filled with so many fun and practical stamp sets. I love the way that Laurie as created sets that are great for using any day of the year. For instance I used this set to make my card for today. I fell in love with it immediately when I saw it. The options are endless. 

Check it out here!!

I also used this sketch from Mojo Monday from last week for my card. 

And here is my card.

 This time around, I used the pre-colored snowman image and adhered it to circle shape that had been embossed with a snowflake pattern. 

 A panel of snowflake patterned paper was adhered to black card stock for the background, along with a panel of dark blue patterned paper that had winter words. To make the dark blue pop, I decided to play off the green that was in the smallest panel with dots. The green was the color that was used the lease, so I cut very thin strips of green card stock and glued them over-top and beneath the dark blue panel to tie these two different patterns together. Before adding this panel to the card base, bakers twine was wrapped around the center panel to help balance out the color of red. This was then adhered to the white card base.  To add dimension and depth, the circle portion was adhered with pop dots and tucked just inside the twine. Also, to give a whimsical feel to this card I outlined certain areas adding dashes and dots. To finish the card and to play off the circle shapes, a button was added.  This was all done to complete a triangle focal point bringing the eye from the top of the card, then slightly off to the side and then down to the bottom, which leads the eye to the top again. I love using this kind of design, though I don't always set out with this goal in mind. Making a card or a page layout that has great color flow is one that you will not forget easily and will always be a joy to look at time and again. 

These are just some of my favorites in this release. 

This one is totally stunning to say the lease. Wow.

And this one is gorgeous with its vintage charm. Amazing coloring job Laurie. Wow. You could actually add a pair of Baby shoes to the rocking chair to make this a Baby Card as well. This is the Baby shoes set and it is so adorable.
