Thankful For You – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

I’m back with a card that was up on the Jane’s Doodle blog earlier this week. I love the simplicity of the white heat embossing on the coloured card stock. I used two teal Prismacolor pencils and a Derwent blender pencil to add some subtle shading. The Jane’s Doodles sets I used are Lily and Thankful. Love them both.

Have you noticed I am also trying something new with my photography set up? I am no professional photographer, but I am loving all the flat stylised card photos I’m seeing around blogland of late, so I thought I would give it a try. I’m also trying out different locations around my new house that has the best natural light! This spot I found was just near my kitchen window. Who knows if I’ll be able to replicate it again next time!

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Lily and Thankful stamp sets

Card: Hero Arts Layering Paper – Pool

Ink: Versamark watermark ink

Other Supplies: Hero Arts white embossing powder, Heat tool, Anti static pillow, Prismacolor pencils (2 shades of teal), Derwent blender pencil


I hope you can get some crafty time in today,

Until next time,

Blue Birds – Penny Black

simplicity sister

Hello – just a quick post to share a serene little scene using a Penny Black die called Layered Scene. This die set actually comes with two dies that can be layered, but I chose to use just one of the layers. I die cut the scene from white card stock and then used my Copic markers to selectively colour in the different areas. I did add some dimension on the birds by using some 3D mounting foam.

It is very rare that I make a card with no sentiment, but I felt this one didn’t need one.

Love You and a snake!

Jane's Doodle Banner

I’m popping in quickly to share another card I have made with Jane’s Doodles stamps. To see the post over on the JD Blog go here.

Being a teacher I just love chalk boards. There is nothing better than writing on one, though they can be really messy with all that dust! I used to dream of being a teacher as a kid and had my own blackboard to play on. When I started teaching 16 years ago, I did have a chalk board, but they have all been replaced with white boards and interactive boards now – not quite the same to write on.

However, I can always recreate that dusty chalkboard look on my cards and that is what I have done today. To do this, I used a baby wipe and swiped on some white pigment ink onto the black card stock. The good thing about using a baby wipe is that you can always wipe off some of the ink if it is too much.

The flowers are from the Doodle Flowers stamp set and the Love you sentiment is from the Love stamp set. The flowers were coloured really simply with a sponge dauber and some Hero Arts inks.

Love You Jane's Doodles | Marion Vagg

Before I go, I want to share with you a photo of my kids and I and a friendly specimen that visited our school today. There is no better way to learn than to do it the hands-on way. (For the record it was very heavy and very cold to touch!)
