Jane’s Doodle Blog Hop – Simon

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello! Today is the release blog hop for Jane’s Doodles Stamps. You should have arrived from Zrinka’s awesome blog. If you get lost along the way, there is a blog hop order at the end of my post that should point you in the right direction.

Today the DT are showcasing the latest stamp set to the store called Simon. This stamp set is a lot of fun.

JD Simon

When I first get a new stamp set I often look at the sentiments and plan my card around that. I loved the ‘You rock my boat’ sentiment, so I knew that I would use the boat image and then to add some interest I popped the bird on the edge of the boat. My hubby is really into fishing, so with some masking I added the fishing rod in the boat as well. Lots of masking, ink blending and Copic colouring to create my scene.

Next up I wanted to use Simon himself. To be different, I created a wine bottle tag – for the fishing enthusiast in my life…on a bottle of wine from his favourite wine region in New Zealand.

A couple of Jane’s Doodles projects

Jane's Doodle Banner

I have a couple of Jane’s Doodles projects to share with you today. You can find the original posts on the Jane’s Doodles blog here and here.

First up is a little tag which uses the Cake! stamp set and it was super quick to make. I’ve actually had the splattered background sitting on my desk for a while, but it was pretty easy to create – a touch of Distress ink watercolouring and some splatters. I stamped the cake image and didn’t want it to compete with the background, so I kept it fairly plain and just added some shading with some light grey Copic markers. It’s got some shimmer with some Wink of Stella, but it is hard to see in the photo.

Next up is a happy hello card which features the Love Birds and Daisies stamp set. I stamped the hello sentiment repeatedly in different colours but I drew in some lines to help me get things straight. Once again, the little bird shimmers with a Wink of Stella. Boy I love that pen!

All you need is love and a dog…

simplicity sister

Hello! I’m knee deep in report writing at the moment, so I’m just quickly popping in with another Penny Black card. This cute little puppy is from a set called Buddy and Duck. Lots of cute images in this set. I sponged on some distress ink over the top of the Zigs and Zags stencil. The sentiment paired so well with the image and it is from the Sentiment Collection set. I’m more of a cat person myself, but I do like it that most dogs are so loyal and happy.

A couple of projects – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello crafty peeps. I hope you have been getting in lots of crafty time – because I certainly haven’t. I feel like I am burning the candle at both ends at the moment – and to top it off I have hurt my back, at the gym of all places! I just can’t seem to win!

Anyway, I have a couple of Jane’s Doodles projects to share with you from the last couple of weeks. You can find the posts on the Jane’s Doodles blog here and here.

First up this little tag uses the Special Delivery stamp set. The stamp has a baby in the pram, but I swapped it out for the teddy bear.

My second card uses quite a few Jane’s Doodle stamp sets. I created the bubbly background using the Stripes and Dots stamp set. I used first, second and third generation stamping in 3 different colours as well as white. I stamped onto watercolour paper, as that is what I had layering around. For the smallest dot, I used the eraser on the end of my pencil. The crab is from the Under the Sea set and coloured with Copics. The sentiment is from the Doodle Flowers stamp set.

Jane’s Doodles Blog Hop

Hello hello. Today is the release blog hop for Jane’s Doodles Stamps. You should have arrived from Zrinka’s blog. If you get lost along the way, there is a blog hop order at the end of my post that should point you in the right direction.

Today we are showcasing the latest stamp set to the store called Cake!

Cake!
Jane's Doodles cake

I coloured the cake with Copic markers and then fussy cut around the image. I stamped the floral wreath from the Mom stamp set in a light lavender ink onto the card base. In hindsight, I would have used a darker shade of purple as it dried a lot lighter than it stamped – but subtle is good sometimes.

JD Let's Celebrate | Marion Vagg

It’s hard to tell, but the icing on the cake has a lovely layer of clear Wink of Stella. Very pretty in real life.
