Jane’s Doodles Blog Hop

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello hello. Today is the release blog hop for Jane’s Doodles Stamps. You should have arrived from¬†Zrinka’s blog. If you get lost along the way, there is a blog hop order at the end of my post that should point you in the right direction.

Today we are showcasing the latest stamp set to the store called Cake!

Jane's Doodles cake

I coloured the cake with Copic markers and then fussy cut around the image. I stamped the floral wreath from the Mom stamp set in a light lavender ink onto the card base. In hindsight, I would have used a darker shade of purple as it dried a lot lighter than it stamped – but subtle is good sometimes.

It’s hard to tell, but the icing on the cake has a lovely layer of clear Wink of Stella. Very pretty in real life.

Happy Anniversary – Penny Black

simplicity sister

Hello. I hope you are having a relaxed weekend. Today I have a Penny Black card to share with you. This card uses a very different colour scheme to my usual go-to-bright-and-happy-colours, but it is good to stretch oneself and try something new.


PB Happy Anniversary | Marion Vagg

I inked up the Penny Black You + Me stamp set with Distress ink. I then stamped the image off onto a scrap piece of paper before spritzing it with some water and stamping onto my watercolour panel. I used two shades of green distress ink (Peeled Paint, Forest Moss). I hit it with my heat gun after each stamping to ensure the watercolour didn’t run. The birds were stamped with Vintage Photo distress ink. Once dry, I then cut the panel into three equal segments before mounting them into a khaki card base.
