Umbrella Ants

Today's the start of a new release at Doodle Pantry and it's no April fool's joke! This is one terrific and huge release of digi stamps and some of the most clever and creative digis yet!  Let's get started by showcasing the digi collection that's free!


Introducing Umbrella Ants - for a limited time (April 1-24) this fabulously fun collection will be free with any purchase you make in the Doodle Pantry Store.  I adore this new set of digis. The umbrella was just calling out to me for paper piecing so that's what I did using the digi papers in another set we're releasing today called Lollipop Worm.

I also used the papers as the background on my card.  The rest of the image was colored with Copics and crystal lacquer used on the puddle of water and the raindrops to add some sparkle, dimension and realism. It's such a great effect.


Pop on over to the Doodle Pantry blog and see all the terrific new digi stamp collections we're releasing today.  You find a couple other specials there too for a limited time - No Foolin'!  I'll be back tomorrow showing off another set we've just released and I'm not clowning around. Come back and see!

Thanks for stopping by today!
