You Are So Very Special – Penny Black

simplicity sister

Hi friends! Today I have a card made with Penny Black products. I’ve used a beautiful floral stamp set called Playful and I have coloured it in with a combination of Copic Markers and Prismacolor pencils. Around the flowers, I used a Prismacolor pencil and Gamsol to create a soft background.

The sentiment is a combination of the Awesome! Creative die (You are) and a stamp from the Happy Snippets stamp set (so very special).

Penny Black 30-347 Playful stamp set
Penny Black 51-333 Awesome! Creative Die
Penny Black 30-358 Happy Snippets Stamp set

Just For You – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner I have a card over on the Jane’s Doodle blog today. This card took a very direction to what I intended, but sometimes you just have to roll with it and see where creativity leads you.

The flowers are from the Anemone stamp set and the sentiment is from the Doodle Flowers set. I coloured the flower with cool grey Copic marker tones then fussy cut the images. I embossed an MFT frame in the background using an embossing mat, then did some ink splatters to add interest. The leaves are a Penny Black creative die and are cut from some green vellum I discovered in my recent move!

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Anemone and Doodle Flowers stamp set

Card: X-Press It blending card

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, VersaFine Onyx Black ink

Other Supplies: Copic Markers (C1, C3, C4, C7), Penny Black Leaves Creative die, MFT Stitched Rectangle die, Cuttlebug, Spellbinder tan embossing mat, Green Vellum, Paintbrush (for ink splatters), Memento marker – Onyx Black

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you are having a great week.

Happy Belated Birthday Tag – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

I am over on the Jane’s Doodle blog again this week, using a set called Belated Birthday. I am really having a lot of fun with this set at the moment and obviously I am having a lot of fun making tags as well!

I found this tag in my stash that I made sometime ago using an acetate stencil I made from an old SSS Sunshine die (which I believe is not available any more) and some texture paste that I had coloured with Distress Ink. The images are all coloured with Copics and then I fussy cut them out. I added some clear Wink of Stella (of course!) and some Glossy Accents to add some shine.

I love making tags and they are simple projects that I can put on my kid’s friends gifts.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Belated Birthday stamp set

Card: X-Press It blending card, Black card stock

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Distress ink Mustard Seed

Other Supplies: Copic Markers, Clear Wink of Stella Glitter brush pen, Texture Paste, Palette knife, Paper Smooches Tag die, Cuttlebug, Hole Punch, Glossy Accents, SSS Sunshine die (discontinued), Acetate, Hero Arts embossing powder – white, Heat tool

Today we are showcasing Jane’s latest stamp sets which are already in the Jane’s Doodles store – just in time for Easter.

Suzi’s Easter

Funny Bunny

He is Risen

I have three cards to share with you today – I just couldn’t stop! The first two use a combination of Suzi’s Easter and Funny Bunny.

All images are coloured with Copic Markers and on the first two cards I masked off the images and gently blended in some blue and green distress ink. I can’t stop using my clear Wink of Stella glitter brush pen at the moment, so all of my projects today have some shimmer on them. You can see some on the Easter eggs in the close up photo on the Hoppy Easter card.

And last, but not least, I have used the He is Risen stamp set to create a tag/bookmark, again coloured with Copic Markers.

Happy Birthday Turtle Tag – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Good evening! Today I am over on the Jane’s Doodle blog using one of Jane’s latest sets called Belated Birthday. I just love me a turtle and this set also has some great snails as well.

The background is quite textured. I found it in my craft pile of unfinished projects (that pile is quite big mind you!) and it was made with some texture paste coloured with distress ink and a stencil from MFT. I have no idea which colour of Distress ink I used though! I have covered the cake and party hat with some clear Wink of Stella, but it doesn’t show up very well in the photo.

This tag is off to my Dad as it was his birthday last week – and I’m a bit late in getting it to him.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Belated Birthday and Doodle Flowers II stamp sets

Card: X-Press It blending card, Black card stock

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Distress ink ??

Other Supplies: Copic Markers, Clear Wink of Stella Glitter brush pen, Texture Paste, My Favorite Things stencil – Brick Wall, Palette knife, Foam squares, Paper Smooches Tag die, Cuttlebug, Hole Punch, Uniball White Signo gel pen

Thanks for your company today,

Marion
