Jane’s Doodles Extravaganza

Jane's Doodle Banner

I thought I would drop in on this fine Friday evening and share some Jane’s Doodles projects that have been over on the Jane’s Doodles blog recently.

First up is a this Christmas card using Jane’s wonderful poinsettia stamp from the Christmas Blessings stamp set. I also used the banner from He is Risen (an Easter stamp) and the sentiment is from the Warm Wishes set.

I coated the petals with some clear Wink of Stella glitter brush pen for some sparkle.

Next up I created a sweet tag using the Life is Good stamp set and the Cool stamp set. It took quite some time to mask and stamp all those hearts, but when an idea pops into my head, I just have to roll with it.

Next up is this card which uses the You Got This and the Stripes and Dots stamp sets.

And last but not least, this project is from a couple of months ago, and I realised I had never shared it here. I made some chocolate wrappers for my kid’s teachers as a thank you gift using the Lily, Doodle Flowers, and Mother’s Day stamp sets.

Well it’s the last day of the school term and I am on 2 weeks holiday! Yay! Hopefully I’ll get me some crafty time!

Until next time,

Four Penny Black Cards

This past week I had the pleasure of being featured on the main Penny Black blog, using new products from their latest catalogues Be Merry and Hello Autumn. I had a lot of fun making these clean and simple cards.

Day 1’s card used the wonderful Layered Poinsettia die and the sentiment came from the Gather Around stamp set. I added score lines to the petals and leaves with a scoring stylus and coloured them with Distress Inks. I custom made the grey panel by scoring lines on a score board.

Day 2’s card used the Hello Autumn stamp set and was coloured with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol.

Day 3’s card used the Hills and Trees Creative die. I love the unusual colour combo which I created effortlessly with Oxide Distress Inks. The sentiment is from the Banner Sentiments set.

And my final Day 4 card is probably my favourite of them all. Aren’t these mice adorable? They are from the Gather Around stamp set.

I coloured them with Copic markers, and then added in all the details (such as the fur on the mice) with Prismacolor pencils.

Thank you Butterfly – Penny Black

simplicity sister

I have a Penny Black card to share with you today – using two of my most favourite crafty items – Dies and Oxide Inks. I *may* have added a couple more Distress Oxide inks to my stash recently, so I was just itching to use them.

I started by masking off a border on the front panel of my card, and blended in some Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Candied Apple Oxide ink. I spritzed the Penny Black Verdure rubber stamp with some water and stamped the inked panel – I love the watermark/oxide ink effect that it created in the background.

I then added the Penny Black Swirling Wings butterfly die onto the panel and white heat embossed the Thank You sentiment onto black card stock. It is part of a sentiment from the Penny Black Kind Words stamp set (I did some stamp surgery).

Penny Black products used:
Penny Black 51-137 Swirling Wings Creative Die
Penny Black 40-475 Verdure Stamp
Penny Black 30-226 Kind Words stamp set

Just For You Fruity Goodness

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello! I have a card over on the Jane’s Doodles blog using the new Life is Good stamp set. You can find the post here.

I have always wanted a mason jar stamp – and I finally have one! I can see lots of fun uses for this set. To create my card, I flipped over the various fruit stamps on my acrylic block and stamped the wrong side first. Once dry, I used the right side of the stamp and stamped with black ink.

The mason jar is silver heat embossed onto vellum. I toyed with the idea of adding some tiny sequins into the jar, but I just couldn’t get it right, so I left it. I’ll certainly be doing a shaker version one day though.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Life is Good stamp set

Card: X-Press It blending card, Hero Arts layering papers – Blush

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, VersaFine – Onyx Black ink, Hero Arts inks – Orange Soda, Bubblegum, Butterbar, Corn Flower

Other Supplies: Silver embossing powder, Heat tool, Anti Static powder bag, Fun foam

Short and sweet from me today,

Marion
