Hopping through the "12 Days of Christmas"

Happy Saturday everyone!  Today we're carrying on the celebration of new releases at Doodle Pantry with a fun Blog Hop showcasing all the wonderful ways you can use the new 12 Days of Christmas digi stamp set this holiday season. 

So if you arrived my blog from Glenda's Blog, then you're on the right track. If not, you will want to start at the Doodle Pantry Blog so you don't miss a creative thing!  We have prizes for our hopping blogger fans - randomly selecting at least five of you for $10 gift certificates to the Doodle Pantry Store.  So let's get started with my project and on with the fun!

I'm showcasing all the adorable images available in this new set in my "12 Days of Christmas" house - and several sentiments and one of the digital papers too!  Designed to be a piece of wall art for the holidays, each image in my house was hand colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol.  However, the 12 Days of Christmas collection comes with pre-colored images as well as black outlines so you could whip up this project in no time at all!

Now here's a little preview of the "12 Days of Christmas" set.  It's an incredible value at $4.50 - you get all 12 of the pre-colored images, the five coordinating digital papers, two types of sentiment digis for each image (circle and numbered straight), four additional sentiments and then all the black outline images too.  A black outline image set is also available for $3.50.

Here'a  little closer look at the hand-colored images on my 12 Days of Christmas house wall art.  The paper behind them is one of the digital papers available in this set.
To achieve this look, each image was sized down to about 1-inch square and the circle sentiment surrounding it to about 1.25-inches in diameter.  I just used a circle punch (SU 1-3/8 inch circle) to cut them out once colored and then mounted them on Poppy Parade scallop circle punched cardstock.  The "12 Days" sentiment on the roof of the house was enlarged and adherred with a 3D bulge in the center for some added dimension.  The overall measurement of the house (without the wire hanger) is 12"T x 9"W.  And that's it - pretty easy to do and yields a really festive holiday decoration for your home.


Now leave me a little love here and be sure to comment and enter your name in the blog hop prize drawing at the Doodle Pantry Blog at the end.  You have one more stop to go - at the blog of Sarah Nancarrow, my Doodle Pantry Creative Team buddy.  Be sure to make it around the entire hop - the projects the creative team are showing will just knock your socks off!

Thanks for "hopping" by!
