simplicity sister

Just popping in with a sneaky peek of my card which is over on the Simplicity at its Best blog.  I have used one of my all time favourite techniques again – inlaid die cutting using the Penny Black Numbers die set. To check it out, go here.

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!

Happy Birthday – Jane’s Doodles

This card is pretty much identical to one of my cards from the last blog hop (which can be found here), but I decided to step it up a bit and create my own plaid background (using the Stripes and Dots stamp set) and changed up the sentiment and the colours.

Hello Sunshine and Happy Birthday – Sunny Studio

I’ve got 2 cards over on the Sunny Studio blog today. The first one uses a set called Sunny Sentiments. It is one of my favourite sets – it has some greats fonts. I masked off a strip and blended in some distress inks. To create the dots, I used a stencil and removed some ink with a baby wipe.

This second card was really fun to make. I had fun mixing and matching different sets – Birthday Smiles, Bundled Up and Sending My Love stamp sets.
