A Little Foxy Note – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle BannerPopping in quickly with a card for Jane’s Doodles. I masked off a circle on some watercolour paper and then went to town with some Distress Inks and a paintbrush. The Fox is from Jane’s Doodles Hello Friend set and the sentiment is from the Doodle Flower’s 2 stamp set. I think it looks like he is sitting in front of a huge moon!

Muse #109 – It’s Your Birthday

muse_logo

I was determined NOT to make a blue card for the Muse Card Club this month. Looking through my last Muse cards, blue seems to be something I gravitate too! So how about a dose of yellow for this month?

It[s Your Birthday | Marion Vagg

These sweet birds (coloured with Copics) are from the Penny Black ‘Woodland Friends’ Stamp set and the sentiment is also from a Penny Black set called ‘Live it Up!’. I created the background by creating a wash with Distress inks, and once dry, flicked on some splatters with a paintbrush.

Hope that you will be able to find some time this week to join in on the fun.

For the full Muse challenge guidelines go here.

Supplies

Stamps: Penn Black Woodland Friends stamp set, Penny Black Live it Up Stamp set

Card: X-Press It blending card, Canson watercolour paper

Ink: Distress Ink – Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold, VersaFine – Onyx Black, Memento – Tuxedo Black

Other Supplies: Lawn Fawn Say Cheese die, Cuttlebug, Copic Markers, Washi Tape, Paintbrush, Foam dimensionals

Shaker tag – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner
I am feeling somewhat under the weather at the moment, so not much creativity has been happening of late – just a lot of coughing and sniffling. But a couple of weeks ago I did manage to create my very first shaker project – a tag! I have been watching and admiring this trend for probably over a year now – and not being one to jump into things too quickly, I decided it was FINALLY time to give it a try. After all the videos I’ve watch on shaker construction, one would think I would be able do it first time round, but it still took me 3 goes to get it right. But I do think it is a lot of fun! My daughter gave it the nod of approval and was very happy to claim my reject attempts.

And I just realised that I never posted my last Jane’s Doodles tag using the adorable Seamus stamp set. This guy makes me smile. I think the guy in the top left certainly does have crazy eyes as Jane mentioned in the post ;) Crazy in love maybe?

It’s your Special Day with Penny Black

simplicity sister

Today I am back sharing a card using some of the new Penny Black products from their latest release Bring on the Happy.

I have created a fun scene using the Live it Up! stamp set and paired it with a sentiment from the Sprinkles and Smiles stamp set. I coloured in the balloons with Copics and added some clear Wink of Stella glitter pen for some subtle shine. I masked off a circle and blended in some Salty Ocean distress ink to create the sky.

Muse #105 – God Bless You

muse_logo

Another month has rolled around and it is my turn to be the Muse at the Muse Card Club. I have had this die from Memory Box in my craft stash for well over a year and a half….and it has NEVER made it onto a card until now! Better late than never.

I sponged distress ink onto the small focal panel and to create the stars I spritzed the panel with some water from a mister bottle before dabbing it away with a dry cloth. It created just the right amount of stars for my scene.

God Bless You | Marion Vagg

Hope that you will be able to find some time this week to join in on the fun.
