Tweet Hugs – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

I have a sweet card to share with you today featuring Jane’s Love Birds set. I simply adore this set! Head over to the Jane’s Doodle blog to see the post there.

I wasn’t sure where I was going with this card, so when I don’t know, I usually just stamp, colour (in this case with Copics) and fussy cut the images. This is what I did with this one. To add some interest to the blue card base, I stamped some hearts from the Love stamp set to create a tone on tone effect – subtle and not too overpowering.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Love Birds and Love stamp sets

Card: X-Press It blending card, Hero Arts layering papers – Cerulean

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Hero Arts Shadow ink – Pool, Soft Pool, Distress Ink – Salty Ocean

Other Supplies: Copic Markers, Fun foam, Lawn Fawn Say Cheese die, Cuttlebug, Ink Blending tool

Hello – Penny Black

Hello! I think Adele’s song was playing on repeat the whole time I made this card, but it’s a good song, and I quite like how the card turned out as well!

I used the Penny Black slapstick/cling stamp called Birthday Tweetings (well part of the stamp) as well as the Chat Bubbles Creative die set.

I stamped and then coloured the phone with Copic markers. I fussy cut the phone, as I didn’t need to bird this time round, although it is a very cute and whimsical image.

The background looked a little plain to me, so I decided to use the Chat Bubble Creative die set and emboss the speech bubbles into the background using an embossing mat in my die cutting machine. I find that this adds more interest to the card, without taking away from the focal image.

I adhered the phone and sentiment with some foam tape and then mounted that onto the card base with more foam. I hand drew the phone cord.

Just For You – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner I have a card over on the Jane’s Doodle blog today. This card took a very direction to what I intended, but sometimes you just have to roll with it and see where creativity leads you.

The flowers are from the Anemone stamp set and the sentiment is from the Doodle Flowers set. I coloured the flower with cool grey Copic marker tones then fussy cut the images. I embossed an MFT frame in the background using an embossing mat, then did some ink splatters to add interest. The leaves are a Penny Black creative die and are cut from some green vellum I discovered in my recent move!

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Anemone and Doodle Flowers stamp set

Card: X-Press It blending card

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, VersaFine Onyx Black ink

Other Supplies: Copic Markers (C1, C3, C4, C7), Penny Black Leaves Creative die, MFT Stitched Rectangle die, Cuttlebug, Spellbinder tan embossing mat, Green Vellum, Paintbrush (for ink splatters), Memento marker – Onyx Black

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you are having a great week.

Sending You Smiles – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Today I have a fun card up on the Jane’s Doodle blog, using her newest stamp set called Winter Fun – which happens to be on sale right now! And it certainly was a lot of fun to colour in these cute reindeer.

I stamped and then coloured these three with Copic Markers. To add some finishing touches I put some clear Wink of Stella glitter brush pen onto their scarves and coated their noses with Glossy Accents. The sentiment is from the Monster Squad stamp set.

Well it’s less than 2 weeks now until we move. I’ve boxed up my craft room, so it will be a few weeks before I can craft again. Thankfully I managed to get all my January projects done well in advance. I’m itching to make something, but more packing and cleaning have to come first!
