Love You and Hello – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I thought I would get in nice and early with making a card for my Mum. You can find it on the Jane’s Doodle blog.

I stamped the image from the Mom stamp set and coloured it with Copic markers. I white heat embossed the sentiment (from the same set) onto some black card stock. It’s a rather small 10cm square card (4 inches square).

For the background, I used my scoreboard and scoring stylus to create a subtle border. I think it frames the vase well, adding a textural feature.

And before I go, I forgot to share another card that was on the Jane’s Doodle blog several weeks ago. It used the Daisies stamp set. I masked then stamped the images onto watercolour card stock and coloured them Gansai Tambi watercolour paints. I added some brown Distress ink to the edges before removing the border masks.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Mom stamp set

Card: X-Press It blending card, Black card stock

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Versamark watermark ink

Other Supplies: Copic Markers, Martha Stewart scoring board, Scoring stylus, Foam squares, Hero Arts white embossing powder, Heat tool, Anti-static powder bag

Happy Belated Birthday Tag – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

I am over on the Jane’s Doodle blog again this week, using a set called Belated Birthday. I am really having a lot of fun with this set at the moment and obviously I am having a lot of fun making tags as well!

I found this tag in my stash that I made sometime ago using an acetate stencil I made from an old SSS Sunshine die (which I believe is not available any more) and some texture paste that I had coloured with Distress Ink. The images are all coloured with Copics and then I fussy cut them out. I added some clear Wink of Stella (of course!) and some Glossy Accents to add some shine.

I love making tags and they are simple projects that I can put on my kid’s friends gifts.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Belated Birthday stamp set

Card: X-Press It blending card, Black card stock

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Distress ink Mustard Seed

Other Supplies: Copic Markers, Clear Wink of Stella Glitter brush pen, Texture Paste, Palette knife, Paper Smooches Tag die, Cuttlebug, Hole Punch, Glossy Accents, SSS Sunshine die (discontinued), Acetate, Hero Arts embossing powder – white, Heat tool

Today we are showcasing Jane’s latest stamp sets which are already in the Jane’s Doodles store – just in time for Easter.

Suzi’s Easter

Funny Bunny

He is Risen

I have three cards to share with you today – I just couldn’t stop! The first two use a combination of Suzi’s Easter and Funny Bunny.

All images are coloured with Copic Markers and on the first two cards I masked off the images and gently blended in some blue and green distress ink. I can’t stop using my clear Wink of Stella glitter brush pen at the moment, so all of my projects today have some shimmer on them. You can see some on the Easter eggs in the close up photo on the Hoppy Easter card.

And last, but not least, I have used the He is Risen stamp set to create a tag/bookmark, again coloured with Copic Markers.

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.
