Happy Birthday Crab – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Happy Saturday. I have a cute Jane’s Doodles card to share with you that I had a lot of fun making. Jane has some adorable stamp sets and it was really fun mixing some of these together. The crab is from the Under the Sea set and sentiment is from a set called Belated Birthday (I did a little stamp surgery here). The present is from a Christmas set called Driving Home for Christmas.

I started with a die cut circle which I blended with a mixture of Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch distress oxide inks. I splattered on some water to create the bubbles. The images were stamped and coloured with Copics and then fussy cut them out. The sand hill is hand cut.

This card is a little different as the focal image is on the inside of the card…and can be seen through the window.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Under the Sea, Belated Birthday and Driving Home for Christmas stamp sets

Card: Neenah solar white card stock

Ink: Versamark ink, Memento Tuxedo black ink, Distress Oxide ink – Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch

Other Supplies: Copic markers, Spellbinders circle die, Cuttlebug, Googly eyes, 3D mounting foam, Ink blending tool

Thanks for stopping by. I’m off to watch the Royal wedding.

Jane’s Doodles blog hop, a giveaway and 25% sale

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello! Welcome to another Jane’s Doodles blog hop where the Design Team are showcasing Jane’s latest stamp release – three new stamp sets. You should have arrived from Ange’s blog. If you get lost along the way, there is a list of blog hop contributors at the end of this post.

Without further ado, here are the three new sets.

Magnolia

 Bless Your Heart

Homemade

My first card features the Magnolia stamp set. Magnolia’s are such magnificent flowers. The sentiment is from an older set (but still a favourite – Doodle Flowers 2)

I used a Lifestyle crafts embossing folder in the background – something subtle so those magnolias could take centre stage.

Next up I made some tags using the Homemade set. These would be perfect to attach to some home baked gifts. The tone-on-tone dots in the background use the Stripes and Dots stamp set.

Giveaway:
In addition to Jane having a 25% off sale on all clear stamps until Wednesday, she is giving a stamp set of your choice to one lucky winner. All you need to do is comment on all the blogs in the hop and you’ll be in with a chance to win! Good luck!

A Floral Hello – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Good evening. I have another Jane’s Doodles card to share with you.

I took a square panel of Bristol smooth white card stock and heavily blended on some Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink. When completely dry, I white heat embossed a flower from the Blooms stamp set, then created a mask before white heat embossing the second flower. The sentiment is from the Daisies stamp set was also white heat embossed. To add some details to the flowers, I first used a white Prismacolor pencil and then added the violet shades over the top.

To finish off the card, I splattered some water, which reacted with the Distress Oxide ink.

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Bloom and Daisies stamp set

Card: Bristol Srathmore smooth white card stock, XPress It Blending card, Light grey card stock

Ink: Versamark ink, Distress Oxide ink – Wilted Violet

Three Butterflies Tag – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello! I am officially on school holidays! It has been a mammoth school term (12 weeks for us teachers) and I am in need of a really long sleep…. I’m back with some Janes’s Doodles tags that I made last week and haven’t had a chance to post here until now. You can find the original on the Jane’s Doodles blog here.

The butterflies are from the Doodle Flowers stamp set and the sentiments are from the Dots and Strips stamp set. Nothing too complicated – simple Copic colouring, fussy cutting and then I stamped the image in black on the tag (to get the antennae) and then adhered the wings over the top. I added some shimmer to the wings as well.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Doodle Flowers and Dot and Stripes stamp set

Card: X-Press It blending card, Hero Arts woodgrain card stock

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, VersaFine Onyx black ink

Other Supplies: Copic Markers, Penny Black Tagged Die, Cuttlebug, Red and Blue hemp twine, Wink of Stella glitter brush pen

Thanks for stopping by today.

He is Risen – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello! With Easter just around the corner, I thought it was time to make an Easter card – and one with a very powerful message. You can also find it over on the Jane’s Doodle blog here.

The image is from the He is Risen set and is coloured with Copic markers. I added some Glossy Accents to the flowers. I felt that the card was a little plain, so I added a border, which I created with a score board.

It is hard to tell, but the middle portion of the banner is raised up on some mounting foam. I had to do this to cover a mis-stamp of the sentiment, but in the end, it looked better as it added a bit more interest to what was a very CAS card.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles He is Risen stamp set

Card: X-Press It blending card

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, VersaFine Onyx black ink

Other Supplies: Copic Markers, Prismacolor pencils, 3D mounting foam, Martha Stewart Score board, Glossy Accents

Thanks for stopping by today.

Scentsational – Jane’s Doodle

Jane's Doodle Banner

I’m over on the Jane’s Doodles blog today, where I have been testing out Jane’s new dies! I can report that they cut like butter. I created this little scene using the Stinks stamp set and the matching Stinks dies. What’s even more exciting is that Jane is offering 20% off store wide today!

I had fun creating this little scene. After stamping and die cutting the images, I coloured them with Copics. I did a little Distress Oxide ink blending behind the circle panel which was cut from some wood grain card stock – which I am hoarding as I love it so much and have a limited supply. Any fellow Aussie crafters know where I can get some heavier weight wood grain card stock in Australia at a decent price? I’d love to hear from you.

I also have a few other JD projects that I have made which I haven’t posted here yet, from a couple of weeks ago. You can find the original post here. If you want to know any of the supplies for these two, just contact me and I’ll let you know!

And this one.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Stinks stamp set

Card: X-Press It blending card, SSS Wood grain card stock, Black card stock

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Distress Oxide ink – Broken China, Salty Ocean and Lucky Clover, Versamark

Other Supplies: Copic Markers, Jane’s Doodles Stinks dies, Spellbinders circle dies, Cuttlebug, 3D mounting foam, Hero Arts white embossing powder, Heat tool, anti-static powder bag
