Winter Star

Well it's the start of a new month and I can't believe how fast we flew through October. I love this time of year so I like for it to last!  However, I am pretty excited for today because of the new release collections debuting at Doodle Pantry and particularly this one that I'm showcasing. This wonderful holiday set is called Winter Star and the best part is that it is free with any purchase at Doodle Pantry through November 24.

There are 13 new collections out today ranging from holiday theme sets to masculine scenery sets. We have ants, birdies, deer and a racoon for those who love Laurie's animal images. You just have to visit Doodle Pantry and see these new releases!

This beautiful Winter Star image was colored with Copics and paired with the gorgeous papers from the Christmas Cottage line by Teresa Collins. I love the non-traditional add of pink in this line which softens the typical green/red combination.

This is a perfect image for layering and creating dimension.  I printed it five times and cut out elements separately for the base star with the berries, the pine cones, the holly leaves, the center snowflake and the snowflake star center. Those elements were all colored first then cut out and added to the base image with dimensionals for different heights. The final effect is so pretty and makes the image so much more prominent on the card.  Time consuming - yes! But so worth the effort for a special Christmas card. The Winter Star set also comes with pre-colored versions of the image which is beautiful too.

So I hope this whets your whistle and gets you to run over to the Doodle Pantry Store to see more, make a purchase and get this terrific set free! Later today we'll have a new challenge on the Doodle Pantry Blog with a featured set from the new release today - be sure to check that out too!

Thanks for stopping by!
