Jane’s Doodles Blog Hop

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello! Thanks for joining me today for a blog hop for Jane’s Doodles Stamps. If you have arrived from Milka’s blog you are in the right place. If you want to start from the beginning, there is a blog hop order at the end of this post with links.

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.

For this card I used the dies and a sentiment and created a colourful stack of birds.

Spring blessings

Next I used some of the cute flowers from the set to create a little garden scene.

Scrapbook Boutique Easter Challenge

Hi,
If you have been trying to access my blog during the last 24 hours…my apologies for it being offline – it was beyond my control – a data centre problem…but all fixed now!

This is my entry to the current Scrapbook Boutique Easter Challenge….squeezing it in before the deadline tonight!

I have never made an Easter card before….not something I would normally do, but I do love to make little tags! My hubby is away for work at the moment, but my dear friend invited me and my kiddlets to her place for the afternoon and dinner, so I just had to make each of her family a little something special to give them for Easter. It was a bit of a rush job but they turned out OK. Everyone got a little personalised tag to go on a couple of Easter eggs which I packaged up in clear bags and tied off with some ribbon. On the back of the tag I put the bible verse “If the Son sets you free, then you will be free indeed” – John 8:36. A very fitting verse for Easter I thought!

You will have to excuse the photos, but I had to snap these quickly before I had to head out the door to give them away and they weren’t the easiest of things to take decent photos of (cards are a little more straight forward!)

Supplies:

Stamps: Hero Arts ‘Flourish Background’ Cling stamp (CG119), Scrappy Cat ‘Playful Serie’ letters stamps
Ink: Versafine Ink – Onyx Black, Versacolor cubes – Atlantic, Heliotrope, Green Tea, Petal Pink, Bamboo
Card: White card
Other Supplies: Spellbinders nesties – label 4, Cuttlebug, Kaisercraft Flowers, R.E.I buttons, ribbon, clear cello bags, kitchen twine, sponge dauber

Thanks for stopping by. I have got some super cute animal cards to share with you soon…some new stamps arrived last week and I have been having soooo much fun playing with them. Until then,

Marion
