I’ve made two very CAS cards with this cute set. First up is a sparkly unicorn frolicking in the clouds. I created the clouds by making a mask from masking paper and sponging on Tumbled Glass distress ink.

Penny Black Sneak Peek

simplicity sister

Hello! Today I have a project up on the Simplicity at its Best blog. I had fun playing around with my Distress Markers (which I haven’t used in ages) and created a water coloured card without needing any skills in how to water colour! Check it out the card with instructions here.

I’ve used a beautiful slapstick/cling stamp called Sunbursts.

A Snowman and some Succulents – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

I have a couple of Jane’s Doodles projects to share with you which I have made over the last couple of weeks.

First up is a cute little snowman shaker ornament inspired by Jennifer McGuire and also our recent trip to the snow. It uses the Winter Wishes stamp set.

Australia isn’t very well known for its skiing slopes, but we do have some and last weekend we took our kids so that they could have their first ever snow experience. We had SNOW much fun throwing snowballs, making a snowman and tobogganing (there was still plenty of snow left even though it is spring!)

And here is our snowman from the weekend.

Next up, I have another card to share using the new Cactus stamp set (which you can pre-order). I used Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol to colour in the focal pot. I’m entering this card into the Virginia’s View Challenge #24.

Jane’s Doodle Blog Hop – Simon

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello! Today is the release blog hop for Jane’s Doodles Stamps. You should have arrived from Zrinka’s awesome 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 the DT are showcasing the latest stamp set to the store called Simon. This stamp set is a lot of fun.

JD Simon

When I first get a new stamp set I often look at the sentiments and plan my card around that. I loved the ‘You rock my boat’ sentiment, so I knew that I would use the boat image and then to add some interest I popped the bird on the edge of the boat. My hubby is really into fishing, so with some masking I added the fishing rod in the boat as well. Lots of masking, ink blending and Copic colouring to create my scene.

JD You Rock My Boat | Marion Vagg

Next up I wanted to use Simon himself. To be different, I created a wine bottle tag – for the fishing enthusiast in my life…on a bottle of wine from his favourite wine region in New Zealand.
