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.

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!

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.
