Monster Squad – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

I am totally in love with one of Jane’s Doodles newest sets called Monster Squad. Those monsters are just so cute and always put a smile on my face – especially when googly eyes are added. Here are a couple of projects I have made over the past couple of weeks that have been over on the Jane’s Doodle blog.

Copics and backgrounds

COPIC_participant

Hi there. I have been taking the Online Card Class – Copics Markers for Card Makers and have really been enjoying learning new ways of using my Copics. I don’t have a ton of Copics, but I am trying to get more mileage out of what I have. For this card I was playing around with creating a brick background as taught by Sandy Allnock on Day 9.

I was going to mount the doggie panel onto a white card panel, but it looked too plain so I went to town with Pumice Stone distress ink mixed with water and had some paintbrush flicking fun! I think it adds to the whimsical look of the card.

New challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps

I’m back with a new sketch for the AnnaBelle Stamps monthly challenge.

Today I’ve created a fun water coloured boat scene. Perfect for a little boy’s birthday. The boat is from the Boy’s Party Stamp set and the sentiment is from the Beside the Sea Stamp set. I had fun getting very inky with this one.

Lots of dimension to create the waves.

Vellum is the star

Another card for the  Online Card Class – His and Hers. I actually made this earlier in the week, but wasn’t quite sure if I liked it…

HH_participant

This was inspired by uber talented Cristina Kowalczyk and her vellum creations on Day 2. I never did get around to making a female version as I ran out of time – but I was thinking almost identical to this but with hearts and using shades of pink.

I actually had this blue and teal vellum in my stash (it must be at least 10 years old!). Vellum is not the easiest of materials to work with – especially concealing the adhesive! I find scattering elements on a card quite difficult – there certainly is an art to it.

Happy Birthday vellum

Stamps: Paper Smooches Sentiment sampler Stamp set

Ink: VersaFine – Onyx Black

Card: Neenah solar white cardstock, Hero Arts folded notecards – Azure

Other Supplies: Vellum – blue and teal (no idea of the brand), MFT Star stax dies, PTI Alphabet Dies, Cuttlebug, AnnaBelle Stamps metallic sprinkles, Glossy accents (to adhere sprinkles), foam dimensionals

To Infinity and Beyond

This card was a really quick (and small) birthday card I made for a friend’s son who had a birthday last week. I already had the rocket coloured in, so it took less than 5 mins to assemble, which is unheard of for this slow crafter. The rocket stamp/die is from Papertrey Ink and I just can’t get enough of my AnnaBelle Stamps background stamp – BBD#5.

Supplies

Stamps: Papertrey Ink – Boy Basics: Out of this World Stamp set, AnnaBelle Stamps BBD#5

Ink: Memento – Bamboo Leaves, Tuxedo Black Versafine – Onyx Black

Card:  AnnaBelle Stamps smooth white cardstock, Hero Arts folded note cards – Grass

Other Supplies: PTI Rocket Die, Cuttlebug, Copic Markers, Foam dimensionals

Short and sweet today. Thanks for dropping by,

Marion
