Colourful Tags – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello! It’s been quite sometime since I last posted. There has been good reason for my absence – My hubby and I went on a little vay-cay (without the kids mind you) to Canada! We had an awesome time and loved experiencing such a beautiful country. I won’t bore you with details here, but you may have seen a few photos I put up over on Instagram (@marionvagg).

Today I have some playful tags to share with you, using a variety of Jane’s Doodles stamp sets. You can see them also on the Jane’s Doodle blog here.

I created the stripes in the background using the Stripes and Dots stamp set and a variety of ink colours. I overlapped the stripes, which created additional colours. The shelf was stamped from the LOVE  stamp set – it is actually a scalloped border, but I coloured it in with a black marker and it became a shelf! The plants are from the Plants and Cactus stamp sets.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Plants, Cactus, LOVE and Stripes and Dots stamp sets

Card: X-Press It blending card

Ink: VersaFine – Onyx Black ink, Hero Arts inks – Pale Tomato, Bubblegum, Butter bar, Cantalope, Orange Soda, Grape Juice, Ultra Pink

Other Supplies: Paper Smooches Tag die, Cuttlebug, Hole Punch, Cotton thread, Wink of Stellar glitter brush pen – Clear, Tombow black marker

I appreciate you stopping by today,

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.

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
