So Foxy from Neat and Tangled

Hello crafty friends.  Thank you for stopping by our blog.  Today we're sharing a Fall card created with the adorable So Foxy stamp set from Neat and Tangled and the Wreath Turnabout stamp from Concord & 9th.

 To create this card,  I used the MISTI and the Wreath Turnabout stamp from Concord & 9th to stamp the wreath on kraft cardstock.  I then used the Wonky Stitches Rectangles to cut it for the front of my card.

This adorable fox was stamped on Colored Pencil paper from Strathmore and colored with Polychromos pencils.  You'll find the specific colors linked in the supply list at the bottom of this post.  I added some black glaze pen to his eyes and nose for a shiny, slightly dimensional look.

In the event you don't receive our emails, you may have missed our Turnabout Promotion.  It's not too late to take advantage of the extra savings.  We're offering the discount through September 20th.  You can find the Turnabout Stamps from Concord & 9th in our online store.

Avery Elle - Sweetest Stamp

Happy Friday crafty friends!  Hope you have fun plans for the weekend and that it's warm and sunny.  As summer is quickly coming to an end (sad face), I thought today's card would be perfect to share.  Hopefully we have a few more weeks of ice cream weather!!

I stamped the cute, cone images from Avery Elle's Sweetest stamp set, with Copic friendly ink.  Then, colored them using light colors for the multiple images and brighter colors for the die cut image.

To finish it, I added some Glitter Sprinkles from Doodlebug Designs.

News and Updates at Doodlebugs

Hello crafty friends.  If you receive our emails or follow us on social media, this will probably not be news to you.  We've been so busy with so many changes, that we've failed to keep our blog readers up-to-date and informed about all the changes happening here.  We know that many of you follow us on social media and/or receive our emails, but realize that is not the case for everyone.

So, here's what's been happening here at Doodlebugs.  After a very long year, Cathy has finally finished all her treatments for her breast cancer diagnosis (yippee skippy!).  She's back to work and will be updating the blog, our social media accounts, and newsletters on a much more regular basis.  She's got some fun things in the works and is looking forward to providing some great content we know you'll enjoy!

We've all been busy closing our brick and mortar store here in Sequim, WA.  It's a constant challenge for small retail shops to compete with Amazon, but the recent opening of Michael's down the street, simply hurt us more that we expected.  After 13 years, we decided to focus our efforts completely on our online store and closed the brick and mortar store.  We hope to offer classes, workshops, and possibly art retreats in the future.  Stay tuned...

Kayla, is busy updating and adding new products to our online store.  Expect to see lots of new goodies in the near future.  If you currently shop with us online,  there are no changes in the way you'll shop with us.  If you're used to shopping in our brick and mortar store, we hope you'll visit our online store at https://doodlebugswa.com/. 

We look forward to providing you with the same great products and service that we provided in our Sequim, WA retail shop.

Our online store ships most orders within 48 business hours, provides FREE shipping on all orders over $20 and offers a wonderful rewards program.  We sincerely hope you'll give us a try.  Use the discount code: TESTDRIVE to receive $5 off your order.  Discount valid only once per customer.

We used the new Retro Petals Turnabout stamp from Concord & 9th to create this fun pattern in bright, summer colors.  We then used the Coffee Cup die from MFT Stamps to create the cup from the fun pattern we created.

For the second card we used another favorite from Concord & 9th, the Semicircle Turnabout Stamp.  (We love these stamps and their ability to create fun patterns in colors of our choice)  The coffee mug was stamped using the Coffee Date stamp set from MFT Stamps.
