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.


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

Sunny Studio Guest Designer

Hello. Yesterday I had the privilege of being a Guest Designer on the Sunny Studio blog. I was super fun to ink up some of the latest Autumn release stamp sets – lots of class and cuteness. I recommend that you check out the Sunny Studio store for all their great products if you haven’t already.

This first card uses the Autumn Splendor stamp set. It was fun mixing different colours to create the two-toned leaves. The sentiment was stamped onto a Sunny Studio Stitched Heart shaped die.

Grateful for you Sunny Studio | Marion Vagg

Next up I used the Woodsy Creatures stamp set to create this hilarious bunch of selfie-taking critters! I gave this to a colleague at work.

I recently made this underwater shaker card for the Jane’s Doodle blog using the new Under the Sea stamp set. Lots of fun to make.

Some of the underwater elements are adhered on top of the acetate and some are underneath the acetate, so that the sequins can move around in between.Hello Friend JD | Marion Vagg

Muse #109 – It’s Your Birthday


I was determined NOT to make a blue card for the Muse Card Club this month. Looking through my last Muse cards, blue seems to be something I gravitate too! So how about a dose of yellow for this month?

It[s Your Birthday | Marion Vagg

These sweet birds (coloured with Copics) are from the Penny Black ‘Woodland Friends’ Stamp set and the sentiment is also from a Penny Black set called ‘Live it Up!’. I created the background by creating a wash with Distress inks, and once dry, flicked on some splatters with a paintbrush.

Hope that you will be able to find some time this week to join in on the fun.

For the full Muse challenge guidelines go here.


Stamps: Penn Black Woodland Friends stamp set, Penny Black Live it Up Stamp set

Card: X-Press It blending card, Canson watercolour paper

Ink: Distress Ink – Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold, VersaFine – Onyx Black, Memento – Tuxedo Black

Other Supplies: Lawn Fawn Say Cheese die, Cuttlebug, Copic Markers, Washi Tape, Paintbrush, Foam dimensionals
