Just For You – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner I have a card over on the Jane’s Doodle blog today. This card took a very direction to what I intended, but sometimes you just have to roll with it and see where creativity leads you.

The flowers are from the Anemone stamp set and the sentiment is from the Doodle Flowers set. I coloured the flower with cool grey Copic marker tones then fussy cut the images. I embossed an MFT frame in the background using an embossing mat, then did some ink splatters to add interest. The leaves are a Penny Black creative die and are cut from some green vellum I discovered in my recent move!

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Anemone and Doodle Flowers stamp set

Card: X-Press It blending card

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, VersaFine Onyx Black ink

Other Supplies: Copic Markers (C1, C3, C4, C7), Penny Black Leaves Creative die, MFT Stitched Rectangle die, Cuttlebug, Spellbinder tan embossing mat, Green Vellum, Paintbrush (for ink splatters), Memento marker – Onyx Black

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you are having a great week.

Featured Artist – Tag You’re It #67

I am really honoured to be the Featured Artist over on the Tag You’re It challenge blog for their 67th challenge. A big thank you to Tracey McNeely for inviting me. If you follow my blog, you would know I am a huge fan of making tags and I also used to be on the Design Team for this challenge. So it is nice to be back as a Featured Artist!

This tag is a little different to my usual style, but I was in the mood for some layers, texture and a more feminine creation. I used some texture paste and a Kaisercraft stencil to add texture to the background. The flower is a Die-Namics die called Upsy Daisies and the sentiment is from a MFT set called Label Maker Sentiments. The leaves die is a Fancy That die called Leafy Swirl.

I can’t wait to see how my tag inspires you. I hope you get a chance to play along. Head to the TYI blog for all the details.

Supplies

Stamps: My Favorite Things – Label Maker Sentiment stamp set

Card: Hero Arts Layering Paper – Shallows, Grey card stock, Black card stock

Ink: Versamark watermark ink

Other Supplies: Hero Arts white embossing powder, Heat tool, Anti static pillow, Texture Paste, Kaisercraft stencil – Clock Template, Palette knife, Die-Namics die – Upsy Daisies, Fancy That die – Leafy Swirl, Penny Black die – Tagged, Cuttlebug, Twine, Large Clear gem, Liquid adhesive, Patterned paper (Brand unknown for the flower), Foam dimensionals.

A couple of Jane’s Doodles projects

Jane's Doodle Banner

I have a couple of Jane’s Doodles projects to share with you today. You can find the original posts on the Jane’s Doodles blog here and here.

First up is a little tag which uses the Cake! stamp set and it was super quick to make. I’ve actually had the splattered background sitting on my desk for a while, but it was pretty easy to create – a touch of Distress ink watercolouring and some splatters. I stamped the cake image and didn’t want it to compete with the background, so I kept it fairly plain and just added some shading with some light grey Copic markers. It’s got some shimmer with some Wink of Stella, but it is hard to see in the photo.

Next up is a happy hello card which features the Love Birds and Daisies stamp set. I stamped the hello sentiment repeatedly in different colours but I drew in some lines to help me get things straight. Once again, the little bird shimmers with a Wink of Stella. Boy I love that pen!

Jane’s Doodles Release Blog Hop

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello! Today is the release blog hop for Jane’s Doodles Stamps. You should have arrived from Zrinka’s blog.

Today, two new sets are being released into the store and they are Rain or Shine and Ahoy! Once again, Jane has done an amazing job at designing these sets. I find her stamps so easy to create cute little scenes with them.

Ahoy!

Jane's Doodles Ahoy!

First up I’ve created a one layer card using the Rain or Shine set.

I added two layers of Glossy Accents to the umbrella for lots of dimension. Unfortunately the white dots I drew on the umbrella got a little lost underneath all of that shine.

Next up is a card using the Ahoy! stamp set. I had a lot of fun colouring these images (with Copics) and creating this scene. It’s going to be a birthday card for my daughter who turns 6 in December. She is very much a tom boy and loves all things pirates, so this card is perfect for her. It hasn’t really shown up in the photo very well, but there is a very lightly sponged blue sky with clouds. If you squint you may see some of it – it is much better in real life.

A couple of Jane’s Doodles cards

Jane's Doodle Banner

I have a couple of Jane’s Doodles cards that I haven’t shared here on my blog yet. My life has been SUPER crazy busy the past month – but hopefully things can start to get back to normal soon (but who am I kidding – both my kids have their birthdays in December, school finishes soon so I’m finalising school reports, end of year activities, Christmas is looming….you get the idea. Bring on January I say :))

First up, I have a one layer card using the Winter Wishes stamp set – which is one of my favourite Jane’s Doodles set. I now know why I don’t make one layer cards very often as I’m not a fan of masking. I like the idea, but the actual practise of it is another thing. But it was fun to give it another go. Laura Bassen I take my hat off to you. You are the one layer queen in my eyes!

JD Season's Greeting | Marion Vagg

Next up is a a sentiment-less card using the Doodle Flower and Doodle Flower II stamp sets. This card was really quick to make and could be used for a variety of occasions. I could even add a sentiment really easily if I wanted too. I stamped the images in various colours of inks and then coloured some of the images in with a matching Copic marker colour.
