Love U – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

A couple of days ago I had a Valentine’s card up on the Jane’s Doodle blog, using the Winter Fun stamp set. These reindeer make me smile!

I stamped and then coloured the images with Copic Markers. The banner between the two reindeer is from the Love Birds set, and I hand wrote the sentiment with a Copic Multi liner.

To add some fun details, their noses are coated in Glossy Accents and I added spots to their scarves. I stamped the heart background with some Teal coloured ink, to create a subtle tone-on-tone effect.

Metropolitan Hugs – Penny Black Sneak Peek

simplicity sister

Hello! Long time, no post!

Well it has been a long time between cards and posting and that’s because we moved house. I’ve unpacked 90% of the boxes, so most things are up and functioning again. I’ve also just finished setting up new new craft space, so I hope to get crafting very soon. It’s been over a month since I have made anything!

Anyway, it’s my turn over on the Penny Black Simplicity at its Best blog today. I made this one before the move. Here is a little peek at my card, but you will have to head to the Simplicity blog for the full reveal.

Blue Birds – Penny Black

simplicity sister

Hello – just a quick post to share a serene little scene using a Penny Black die called Layered Scene. This die set actually comes with two dies that can be layered, but I chose to use just one of the layers. I die cut the scene from white card stock and then used my Copic markers to selectively colour in the different areas. I did add some dimension on the birds by using some 3D mounting foam.

It is very rare that I make a card with no sentiment, but I felt this one didn’t need one.

Sending You Smiles – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Today I have a fun card up on the Jane’s Doodle blog, using her newest stamp set called Winter Fun – which happens to be on sale right now! And it certainly was a lot of fun to colour in these cute reindeer.

I stamped and then coloured these three with Copic Markers. To add some finishing touches I put some clear Wink of Stella glitter brush pen onto their scarves and coated their noses with Glossy Accents. The sentiment is from the Monster Squad stamp set.

Well it’s less than 2 weeks now until we move. I’ve boxed up my craft room, so it will be a few weeks before I can craft again. Thankfully I managed to get all my January projects done well in advance. I’m itching to make something, but more packing and cleaning have to come first!

Celebrate Tag – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Happy New Year! I’ve made a Jane’s Doodle tag to bring in the new year using the Doodle Flowers and Birthday Wishes stamp set. You can find the post on the Jane’s Doodles blog here.

I used a chevron embossing folder on the tag to add some texture, then stamped and fussy cut the flowers and leaves which were coloured with Copics.

The sentiment was white heat embossed onto some black card stock and then I fussy cut it out.
