Happy Birthday Dragon

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hi there! I’m still burning the candle at both ends, but hopefully I’l be able to stop for a breath really soon! I’m popping in really quickly with my latest Jane’s Doodles card. I had some new Jane’s Doodles stamp arrive at my doorstop last week, and I couldn’t wait to play. This one uses the new Magical set. The JD store is closed at the moment while Jane is on a much needed break but make sure you head to the JD blog in the meantime, where a lot of the DT have been playing with this cutie-patootie stamp set. Look at that dragon. Is it the cutest?

Coloured with Copics and I love the addition of the dots. It’s all in the details!

Happy Birthday Bunnies – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hi! I feel like I’ve been a little absent from blogland lately. My Reeder feed is brimming to overflowing with all of your wonderful blog posts that I just haven’t got around to reading! Life and work is just super busy at the moment! I’m sure many of you can relate.

Anyway, I have a couple of Jane’s Doodles projects to share with you. I was on the Jane’s Doodles blog yesterday with some sweet and simple bunny cards. Who doesn’t love a bunny?

These cards use a variety of Jane’s stamp sets. The tone on tone stripes and dots on the base of the cards were stamped with the Stripes and Dots stamp set. The small bunny below is from the Suzi’s Easter set and the balloon is from the Monster’s Squad set.

The big Bunny is from the Spring stamp set and the sentiment comes from the Belated Birthday set (I just did some stamp surgery and took out the word belated). To add some shine, I added Glossy Accents to balloons. All the images were coloured with Copics.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Stripes and Dots, Spring, Suzi’s Easter, Monster Squad, Belated Birthday stamp sets

Card: X-Press It blending card, Hero Arts layering papers – Grass and Blush

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, VersaFine – Onyx Black ink, Hero Arts inks – Pale Tomato, Green Hills

Other Supplies: Copic markers, Glossy Accents, Fun foam

Unicorns and Rainbows – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

My daughter was invited to a unicorn and rainbow themed birthday party last weekend, so that called for Jane’s Unicorn set.

I started by die cutting a tag from blue cardstock. I then die cut a cloud border die from masking paper and used an ink blending tool and some Salty Ocean Distress ink to create the clouds. Then it was a simple matter of stamping the rainbow and unicorn onto some white card stock and colouring them with Copic markers. After fussy cutting them out, I added several layers of a Wink of Stellar clear glitter brush pen to the rainbow and wings/mane. It is very shimmery in real life, but isn’t captured in the photo. The sentiment is from the Cake! stamp set.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Unicorn and Cake! stamp sets

Card: X-Press It blending card, Simon Says Stamp Surf Blue

Ink: VersaFine – Onyx Black ink, Memento – Tuxedo Black ink,  Distress ink – Salty Ocean

Other Supplies: Paper Smooches Tag die, Poppy Stamps dies – Puffy Cloud Border, Cuttlebug, Copic markers, Ink blending tool, Inkadinkadoo Masking Paper, Hole Punch, Cotton thread, Wink of Stellar glitter brush pen – Clear

Especially For You – Penny Black

simplicity sister

Hi friends! Today I have a card made with some pretty darn cute images from Penny Black. I’ve used the Time to Celebrate stamp set and the sentiment is from the Banners Sentiment set.

To create my scene, I stamped the cute puppy dog in Tuxedo black ink. Then I did some stamp surgery and cut off the balloon from another image in that set and stamped that above his tail. I used a Copic multiliner to draw the balloon string and attached it to the dog’s tail. Then I stamped the bees and the sentiment.

Instead of colouring with Copic markers, which is my go to medium, I decided to get out my Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. It certainly was very therapeutic to colour!

Penny Black products used:
Penny Black 30-414 Time to Celebrate stamp set
Penny Black 30-423 Banner Sentiments

Supplies

Stamps: Penny Black Time to Celebrate and Banner Sentiments stamp set

Card: X-Press It blending card, SSS Green Card stock

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink

Other Supplies: Prismacolor pencils, Gamsol, Blending stump, Copic Multiliner – 0.3

I hope you are having a wonderful day.
Thanks for stopping by,

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,

Marion
