Thank You – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

I had a card over on the Jane’s Doodles blog earlier this week. It uses two (of three) new stamp sets that have just been released into the store – Bloom and Mother’s Day. I’m really loving the Bloom set, as I simply love floral stamp sets, and this one doesn’t disappoint.

These flowers were coloured with a mixture of Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils. I laid a base of Copic colour, but ended up adding the detail with Prismacolor pencils. I lost count of all the colours I used! I just enjoyed the colouring process. Once coloured, I fussy cut the flowers and leaves out. The sentiment is part of a larger sentiment – I just did some stamp surgery. A touch of subtle ink blending in the background was all that was needed to finish the card off, before putting it onto a blue note card.

I wasn’t able to participate in the blog hop last week, as my stamps didn’t arrive in time. I encourage you, if you haven’t done so already, to take the hop and see what the other DT members created with this new release. Start the hop here.

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

You’re Special To Me – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

I have a Jane’s Doodles card to share with you today which is full of colour. To see the post over on the JD Blog go here. I love flowers and it’s a reminder that spring is just around the corner! The trees are starting to bud and I can feel it in the air some days (though not tonight as it is quite chilly again).

I used the Doodle Flowers and Doodle Flowers II stamp sets and the sentiment is from the Daisies stamp set. I created my own polka dot background using the dots from the Doodle Flowers set. All coloured very simply with Copic markers.

Jane’s Doodles Blog Hop

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello hello. Today is the release blog hop for Jane’s Doodles Stamps. You should have arrived from¬†Zrinka’s blog. If you get lost along the way, there is a blog hop order at the end of my post that should point you in the right direction.

Today we are showcasing the latest stamp set to the store called Cake!

Cake!
Jane's Doodles cake

I coloured the cake with Copic markers and then fussy cut around the image. I stamped the floral wreath from the Mom stamp set in a light lavender ink onto the card base. In hindsight, I would have used a darker shade of purple as it dried a lot lighter than it stamped – but subtle is good sometimes.

It’s hard to tell, but the icing on the cake has a lovely layer of clear Wink of Stella. Very pretty in real life.

I’m popping in with another card using one of Jane’s Doodles latest stamp sets called Daisies. 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.
