Hello! Thanks for joining me today for a blog hop for Jane’s Doodles Stamps. If you have arrived from Vesna’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 set called Plants. A very on-trend stamp set, perfect for many different occasions.

Plants

Today I have created more of a masculine birthday card with this set. I created a watercolour-y background with my Gansai Tambi watercolour paints. I stamped and coloured the image with a Copics, then added some Prismacolor pencil shading. The sentiment was stamped and white heat embossed onto to dark grey card stock.

Happy Birthday Turtle Tag – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Good evening! Today I am over on the Jane’s Doodle blog using one of Jane’s latest sets called Belated Birthday. I just love me a turtle and this set also has some great snails as well.

The background is quite textured. I found it in my craft pile of unfinished projects (that pile is quite big mind you!) and it was made with some texture paste coloured with distress ink and a stencil from MFT. I have no idea which colour of Distress ink I used though! I have covered the cake and party hat with some clear Wink of Stella, but it doesn’t show up very well in the photo.

This tag is off to my Dad as it was his birthday last week – and I’m a bit late in getting it to him.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Belated Birthday and Doodle Flowers II stamp sets

Card: X-Press It blending card, Black card stock

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Distress ink ??

Other Supplies: Copic Markers, Clear Wink of Stella Glitter brush pen, Texture Paste, My Favorite Things stencil – Brick Wall, Palette knife, Foam squares, Paper Smooches Tag die, Cuttlebug, Hole Punch, Uniball White Signo gel pen

Thanks for your company today,

Hello 40!

simplicity sister

Hello! I’m back with another card using some Penny Black products. I needed a 40th card for a dear friend of mine and so this card was born.

The background was created with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolours paints. The butterfly is the largest butterfly from the Penny Black Butterfly Trio set and was white heat embossed onto vellum. The sentiment was created using two creative die sets, Numbers and Hello Christmas.

A couple of Jane’s Doodles projects

Jane's Doodle Banner

I have a couple of Jane’s Doodles projects to share with you today. You can find the original posts on the Jane’s Doodles blog here and here.

First up is a little tag which uses the Cake! stamp set and it was super quick to make. I’ve actually had the splattered background sitting on my desk for a while, but it was pretty easy to create – a touch of Distress ink watercolouring and some splatters. I stamped the cake image and didn’t want it to compete with the background, so I kept it fairly plain and just added some shading with some light grey Copic markers. It’s got some shimmer with some Wink of Stella, but it is hard to see in the photo.

Next up is a happy hello card which features the Love Birds and Daisies stamp set. I stamped the hello sentiment repeatedly in different colours but I drew in some lines to help me get things straight. Once again, the little bird shimmers with a Wink of Stella. Boy I love that pen!
