I Love You – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Today I am sharing a card that I made for the Jane’s Doodles blog last week – using one of my favourite JD sets called Love Birds.

I die cut several circles from masking paper and then inked up the circles with various Distress inks. I made sure to place the larger circles where I wanted the birds to be. I did a little bit of water flicking to distress the circles a bit, but as I didn’t use watercolour paper, it didn’t react with the inks quite like I had hoped. I then stamped and coloured the images with Copic markers, before fussy cutting them out and adhering them to the card. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the card base.

Jane’s Doodles Spotlight Blog Hop – Love themed stamps

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello! Welcome to the Jane’s Doodles blog hop where the Design team are showcasing Jane’s latest stamp release – three new stamp sets just in time for Valentine’s Day. You should have arrived from Ange’s blog. If you get lost along the way, there is a list of blog hop contributors at the end of this post.

Without further ado, here are the three new sets.

To The Moon

 Pucker Up!

Stinks!

My first card features the To the Moon set. I had a lot of fun creating my space scene. The background is a mix of Distress Oxide inks (Salty Ocean) and Distress inks (Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot), with some water splatters, some white pigment ink splatters and then I spritzed it with pearlised water to give it some shimmer.

The rocket windows are covered in Glossy Accents to add some dimension.

My next card uses the Pucker Up! and the Stinks! stamp sets. I stamped and coloured the images with Copics, then fussy cut them out. The background has some subtle ink blending to finish off the scene.

My last card is a very simple card made using the Pucker Up! set. Lots of stamping.

Monster Hugs

Jane's Doodle Banner

Good evening! Well school’s out and I’m on holidays for 6 weeks! Bring on summer 🙂 *insert happy dance*

You might remember this card that I posted a couple of week’s ago. Well for today’s card I used the left over positive die cuts  from that card to create this one! I didn’t want all those awesome circles going to waste. I pulled out Jane’s Doodles Monster Squad stamp set and went to work, colouring with Copics and fussy cutting.

I love the white dots on the purple monster – I used Ranger white enamel accents and a white gel pen. This is going to be my son’s birthday card which is coming up soon.

Cute Christmas Tags – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello! I hope your week is going well – and a Happy Thanksgiving to all those who are celebrating.

I have two cute Christmas tags to share with you today using Jane’s Doodles Mr & Mrs Claus and Warm Wishes stamp sets.

I have been on the lookout for a simple round bauble/tag die, so in the meantime I made my own using some circle dies. If anyone has a good suggestion, let me know.

Anyway, I stamped the Santa and snowman and masked them with some masking paper. I blended on some Distress Oxide ink (Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron) then spritzed with water. After removing the masks, I coloured with Copic markers. It’s hard to tell in the photos but the red areas have some shimmer from a clear Wink of Stella glitter brush pen. I finished them off with some Nuvo Jewel drops.

And don’t forget that Jane’s Doodles is having a sale at the moment – 30% off all stamps! What are you waiting for?

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Mr & Mrs Claus, Warm Wishes stamp sets

Card: X-Press It blending card

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Distress Oxide ink – Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron

Other Supplies: Copic Markers, Spellbinders standard circle dies, Cuttlebug, Inkadinkadoo masking paper, Wink of Stella clear glitter, Uniball white Signo gel pen, Ink blending tool, Nuvo Jewel drops – Sea Breeze, White cotton twine, Hole punch
