Thankful For You – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

I’m back with a card that was up on the Jane’s Doodle blog earlier this week. I love the simplicity of the white heat embossing on the coloured card stock. I used two teal Prismacolor pencils and a Derwent blender pencil to add some subtle shading. The Jane’s Doodles sets I used are Lily and Thankful. Love them both.

Have you noticed I am also trying something new with my photography set up? I am no professional photographer, but I am loving all the flat stylised card photos I’m seeing around blogland of late, so I thought I would give it a try. I’m also trying out different locations around my new house that has the best natural light! This spot I found was just near my kitchen window. Who knows if I’ll be able to replicate it again next time!

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Lily and Thankful stamp sets

Card: Hero Arts Layering Paper – Pool

Ink: Versamark watermark ink

Other Supplies: Hero Arts white embossing powder, Heat tool, Anti static pillow, Prismacolor pencils (2 shades of teal), Derwent blender pencil


I hope you can get some crafty time in today,

Until next time,

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.
