From Our Home to Yours – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

It’s been a bit quiet on my bloggeroo lately. I haven’t been putting my feet up though, but rather rushing around like a headless chook! School is finally finished for the year – reports are written and have been sent home, classrooms packed up and all the end of school concerts and presentations done!  I’ve survived my kid’s birthday party and now I’m madly doing the last minute dash to be ready for Christmas. I’m almost there! But I’m tired.

Anyway, I have a card to share that was over on the Jane’s Doodle blog last week using the Winter Wishes and Mr and Mrs Claus stamp sets.

Some Bunny Special

Jane's Doodle Banner

Spring has certainly sprung here in Asutralia and I am loving it! To celebrate I have a Jane’s Doodles tag to share with you today which is just bursting with all things Spring. To see the post over on the JD Blog go here.

All the stamps are from the Spring stamp set. The background was created with my Gansai Tambi watercolours onto some watercolour paper. The images were coloured with Copics and then I fussy cut them out.

Sunny Studio Guest Designer

Hello. Yesterday I had the privilege of being a Guest Designer on the Sunny Studio blog. I was super fun to ink up some of the latest Autumn release stamp sets – lots of class and cuteness. I recommend that you check out the Sunny Studio store for all their great products if you haven’t already.

This first card uses the Autumn Splendor stamp set. It was fun mixing different colours to create the two-toned leaves. The sentiment was stamped onto a Sunny Studio Stitched Heart shaped die.

Grateful for you Sunny Studio | Marion Vagg

Next up I used the Woodsy Creatures stamp set to create this hilarious bunch of selfie-taking critters! I gave this to a colleague at work.

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.

JD Happy Birthday Tag | Marion Vagg

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.
