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.

Special Delivery

First up I stamped the daisy stamp onto some white card stock and coloured the image with Copics. I then fussy cut around the flowers before adhering it with foam dimensionals onto a yellow card base.

For my second card, I die cut some clouds from some masking paper. I then sponged on some Salty Ocean distress ink and moved the mask several times to create the cloud scene. The stork and baby were coloured with Copic markers and I then fussy cut around these before adhering them with foam dimensionals.

A shadow box for Felix

Hi there,
I have a different kind of project to share with you today. One of my friends recently had a baby and I wanted to make her and her little man Felix, a little something special to go in the nursery. Mama Elephant’s ‘Up and Away’ set came to the rescue again. I cannot get enough of this cute set!

For Felix | Marion Vagg

I sponged the clouds by making my own template and using several distress ink colours. The name is made from a really old set of rub-ons that I have had in my stash for at least 10 years. The whole scene was placed in a shadow box that I bought from Ikea (gotta love that shop). I decided to include Mr Squeaky Mouse in the photo, much to the delight of my daughter 🙂

For Felix detail | Maron Vagg

Supplies

Stamps: Mama Elephant Up and Away Stamp set

Card: X-Press It Blending card

Ink: Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, Distress Ink – Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean

Other Supplies: Copic Markers (I don’t seem to take note of the colours sorry!), Foam dimensionals, Tombow Mono-Multi liquid adhesive, Making Memories rub-ons – Destination small black

I had so much fun making this, that I think I just may have to make some more!
