Jane’s latest release doesn’t disappoint at all. Check it out.

Deck the Halls

 Driving Home for Christmas

Holy Night

For today I have made three cards, as I just couldn’t stop! First up I used the Deck the Halls stamp set. I stamped and coloured the Christmas baubles with Copic Markers and fussy cut them out. I foam mounted them onto my panel that I had blended with some Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide ink. I also stamped a branch image from the Christmas Blessing stamp set with Lucky Clover Distress Oxide ink. I added some gold embossing powder to some areas of the baubles with my Versamark pen and heat embossed it.

Next card uses the cute Driving Home for Christmas set. So adorable! I know I’ll be using this one again very soon. This is a simple one layer card, coloured with Copics and Prismacolor pencils. The sentiment is from the Merry Christmas stamp set.

And last but not least I used the Holy Night stamp set. I blended in a range of Distress Oxide Inks to create a beautiful sunset scene. I splattered it with water to create the stars. Once dry, I stamped the images in VersaFine Onyx black ink. I silver heat embossed 3 stars from the set as well.

I Love You SNOW Much – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello! I’ve made a cute Christmas shaker card using Jane’s Doodles stamps. You can view the post here on the Jane’s Doodles blog.

I don’t often make shaker cards, but I had an idea to make a snow dome card and I managed to do this with some partial die cutting. I partially die cut a circle and then cut the flat bottom section of the dome using a craft knife and ruler. I need to remember to do partial die cutting more often.

To keep this shaker card simple, I coloured, cut and adhered the trees and reindeer from the Winter Fun stamp set on top of the acetate window, rather than behind. I blended in some ink to create a snowy backdrop behind the acetate. I filled the window with some tiny star sequins. I love how it turned out.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Winter Fun stamp set

Card: X-Press It blending card

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, VersaFine – Onyx Black ink, Distress Oxide Inks – Wilted Violet, Broken China

Other Supplies: Copic Markers, Acetate, Fun foam, Uniball Signo white gel pen, Martha Stewart sequins, Spellbinders standard Circle die, Cuttlebug, Ink Bending tool, Masking paper

How is your Christmas card stash coming along?

Jane’s Doodles Extravaganza

Jane's Doodle Banner

I thought I would drop in on this fine Friday evening and share some Jane’s Doodles projects that have been over on the Jane’s Doodles blog recently.

First up is a this Christmas card using Jane’s wonderful poinsettia stamp from the Christmas Blessings stamp set. I also used the banner from He is Risen (an Easter stamp) and the sentiment is from the Warm Wishes set.

I coated the petals with some clear Wink of Stella glitter brush pen for some sparkle.

Next up I created a sweet tag using the Life is Good stamp set and the Cool stamp set. It took quite some time to mask and stamp all those hearts, but when an idea pops into my head, I just have to roll with it.

Next up is this card which uses the You Got This and the Stripes and Dots stamp sets.

And last but not least, this project is from a couple of months ago, and I realised I had never shared it here. I made some chocolate wrappers for my kid’s teachers as a thank you gift using the Lily, Doodle Flowers, and Mother’s Day stamp sets.

Well it’s the last day of the school term and I am on 2 weeks holiday! Yay! Hopefully I’ll get me some crafty time!

Until next time,

Marion

Just For You Fruity Goodness

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello! I have a card over on the Jane’s Doodles blog using the new Life is Good stamp set. You can find the post here.

I have always wanted a mason jar stamp – and I finally have one! I can see lots of fun uses for this set. To create my card, I flipped over the various fruit stamps on my acrylic block and stamped the wrong side first. Once dry, I used the right side of the stamp and stamped with black ink.

The mason jar is silver heat embossed onto vellum. I toyed with the idea of adding some tiny sequins into the jar, but I just couldn’t get it right, so I left it. I’ll certainly be doing a shaker version one day though.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Life is Good stamp set

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

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, VersaFine – Onyx Black ink, Hero Arts inks – Orange Soda, Bubblegum, Butterbar, Corn Flower

Other Supplies: Silver embossing powder, Heat tool, Anti Static powder bag, Fun foam

Short and sweet from me today,

Marion
