The first Doodle Dragon Studio blog hop and challenge!



Welcome to the first Doodle Dragon Studio Blog Hop! If you've arrived from Michelle's blog, you're headed in the right direction. If not, start at the beginning on Dustin's blog. He also has a complete list of the blogs in the hop in case there's a broken link somewhere. I've also printed it below, just in case.  ;)


We're very excited to announce a new challenge blog for Doodle Dragon Studio images, and the first challenge is TODAY! To kick it all off, let's have a blog hop featuring some new digi stamps. Make sure you leave comments on the design team blogs along the way, because three lucky commenters will be randomly drawn to win all five of the new digis Dustin is sharing today! Then, check out the first challenge for another chance to win new Doodle Dragon digis.


So what are you waiting for...start hoppin', and we'll see you on the challenge blog!

The five digis Dustin has for us today are just too cute! I love this little guy! I always associate roses with intensity and earnestness (that's my hubby for you!) so I decided to bling it up today.  ;)  After coloring this romantic teddy with my Prisma pencils & OMS, I matted him and the background oval on black, used just a smidge of dsp and dug out a couple of cute chipboard buttons from my stash. Instead of threading ribbon through the heart button or leaving it bare, I decided to try a little more bling on it, too.


supplies ~ cardstock: Martha Steward (red), The Paper Company (black & pink), Georgia Pacific (white), dsp: stash, chipboard buttons: Colorbok, ribbon: Joann's, bling: Nocturne



I have a second card to share, too! This one was so easy to color up (love that!) and I decided to keep the card layout pretty simple. I also wanted to see how the bear looked colored differently than the last one. Cute little guy!

I added a few metal letters to spell out a message, and a chipboard button ampersand with ribbon threaded through the holes tops it all off!



supplies ~ cardstock: Martha Steward (red), The Paper Company (pink), Georgia Pacific (white); dsp: Hot Off the Press; chipboard button: Colorbok; metal letters: Pressed Petals; ribbon: Joann's



Thanks for hopping with us today. I'm the last stop on the hop, so now head over to the Doodle Dragon Studio Challenge Blog and play along with us this week! I hope you remembered to leave comments on everyone's blogs for a chance to win all of today's digis! Have a great Sunday!
