Thankful For You – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

I’m back with a card that was up on the Jane’s Doodle blog earlier this week. I love the simplicity of the white heat embossing on the coloured card stock. I used two teal Prismacolor pencils and a Derwent blender pencil to add some subtle shading. The Jane’s Doodles sets I used are Lily and Thankful. Love them both.

Have you noticed I am also trying something new with my photography set up? I am no professional photographer, but I am loving all the flat stylised card photos I’m seeing around blogland of late, so I thought I would give it a try. I’m also trying out different locations around my new house that has the best natural light! This spot I found was just near my kitchen window. Who knows if I’ll be able to replicate it again next time!

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Lily and Thankful stamp sets

Card: Hero Arts Layering Paper – Pool

Ink: Versamark watermark ink

Other Supplies: Hero Arts white embossing powder, Heat tool, Anti static pillow, Prismacolor pencils (2 shades of teal), Derwent blender pencil


I hope you can get some crafty time in today,

Until next time,

Love U – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

A couple of days ago I had a Valentine’s card up on the Jane’s Doodle blog, using the Winter Fun stamp set. These reindeer make me smile!

I stamped and then coloured the images with Copic Markers. The banner between the two reindeer is from the Love Birds set, and I hand wrote the sentiment with a Copic Multi liner.

To add some fun details, their noses are coated in Glossy Accents and I added spots to their scarves. I stamped the heart background with some Teal coloured ink, to create a subtle tone-on-tone effect.

Sending You Smiles – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Today I have a fun card up on the Jane’s Doodle blog, using her newest stamp set called Winter Fun – which happens to be on sale right now! And it certainly was a lot of fun to colour in these cute reindeer.

I stamped and then coloured these three with Copic Markers. To add some finishing touches I put some clear Wink of Stella glitter brush pen onto their scarves and coated their noses with Glossy Accents. The sentiment is from the Monster Squad stamp set.

Well it’s less than 2 weeks now until we move. I’ve boxed up my craft room, so it will be a few weeks before I can craft again. Thankfully I managed to get all my January projects done well in advance. I’m itching to make something, but more packing and cleaning have to come first!

Thanks for stopping by,

Celebrate Tag – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Happy New Year! I’ve made a Jane’s Doodle tag to bring in the new year using the Doodle Flowers and Birthday Wishes stamp set. You can find the post on the Jane’s Doodles blog here.

I used a chevron embossing folder on the tag to add some texture, then stamped and fussy cut the flowers and leaves which were coloured with Copics.

The sentiment was white heat embossed onto some black card stock and then I fussy cut it out.

From Our Home to Yours – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

It’s been a bit quiet on my bloggeroo lately. I haven’t been putting my feet up though, but rather rushing around like a headless chook! School is finally finished for the year – reports are written and have been sent home, classrooms packed up and all the end of school concerts and presentations done!  I’ve survived my kid’s birthday party and now I’m madly doing the last minute dash to be ready for Christmas. I’m almost there! But I’m tired.

Anyway, I have a card to share that was over on the Jane’s Doodle blog last week using the Winter Wishes and Mr and Mrs Claus stamp sets.
