Happy Birthday Crab – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Happy Saturday. I have a cute Jane’s Doodles card to share with you that I had a lot of fun making. Jane has some adorable stamp sets and it was really fun mixing some of these together. The crab is from the Under the Sea set and sentiment is from a set called Belated Birthday (I did a little stamp surgery here). The present is from a Christmas set called Driving Home for Christmas.

I started with a die cut circle which I blended with a mixture of Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch distress oxide inks. I splattered on some water to create the bubbles. The images were stamped and coloured with Copics and then fussy cut them out. The sand hill is hand cut.

This card is a little different as the focal image is on the inside of the card…and can be seen through the window.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Under the Sea, Belated Birthday and Driving Home for Christmas stamp sets

A Floral Hello – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Good evening. I have another Jane’s Doodles card to share with you.

I took a square panel of Bristol smooth white card stock and heavily blended on some Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink. When completely dry, I white heat embossed a flower from the Blooms stamp set, then created a mask before white heat embossing the second flower. The sentiment is from the Daisies stamp set was also white heat embossed. To add some details to the flowers, I first used a white Prismacolor pencil and then added the violet shades over the top.

To finish off the card, I splattered some water, which reacted with the Distress Oxide ink.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Bloom and Daisies stamp set

Card: Bristol Srathmore smooth white card stock, XPress It Blending card, Light grey card stock

Ink: Versamark ink, Distress Oxide ink – Wilted Violet

Three Butterflies Tag – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello! I am officially on school holidays! It has been a mammoth school term (12 weeks for us teachers) and I am in need of a really long sleep…. I’m back with some Janes’s Doodles tags that I made last week and haven’t had a chance to post here until now. You can find the original on the Jane’s Doodles blog here.

The butterflies are from the Doodle Flowers stamp set and the sentiments are from the Dots and Strips stamp set. Nothing too complicated – simple Copic colouring, fussy cutting and then I stamped the image in black on the tag (to get the antennae) and then adhered the wings over the top. I added some shimmer to the wings as well.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Doodle Flowers and Dot and Stripes stamp set

Card: X-Press It blending card, Hero Arts woodgrain card stock

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, VersaFine Onyx black ink

Spotlight on Sweet Spring – Penny Black 4

Happy Easter to you and your loved ones. I’m back today with my fourth card for Penny Black, using products from their latest catalogue called Sweet Spring. For today’s card and tag, I’ve used a rubber stamp called Blissful Blooms.

Blissful Blooms

I create the card and the tag (Tagged Creative die), I placed the Blissful Bloom stamp onto a stamping positioning tool. I then used both Distress markers and Tombow markers to colour directly onto the rubber stamp. Once coloured, I spritzed the stamp with some water from a spray bottle and then stamped it onto the watercolour paper. I immediately heat set it with a heat tool. I love the water coloured effect that this technique creates.

To intensify the shading on the leaves and stems, I used some Prismacolor pencils. I placed some Nuvo Crystal drops onto the centres of the flowers.

The sentiment comes from the Happy Critters stamp set.

Penny Black 40-600 Blissful Blossoms stamp

Spotlight on Sweet Spring 3 – Penny Black

I’m back with my third card using products from Penny Black‘s latest catalogue called Sweet Spring. I’ve switched gears today and have opted for a cute furry critter over the florals, and it’s from the Happy Critters stamp set.

Happy Critters

Who doesn’t love those Penny Black kitty cats? I stamped and coloured the image with Copic markers and then fussy cut around the balloon and the cat.

The background was created by blending some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink heavily onto some Strathmore Bristol smooth white card stock. I placed the Zigs and Zags stencil over the inked background and spritzed it with some water. After removing the stencil, I heated it with my heat gun quickly.

Once the background was completely dry, I stamped the cat in the hot air balloon again, directly onto the background as well as the sentiment, also from the same set. I popped up the cat and the balloon with 3D mounting foam to give it some dimension.

Penny Black 30-479 Happy Critters stamp set

Spotlight on Sweet Spring 2 – Penny Black

Hello again! I’m back with my second card using some of the awesome Penny Black products from their latest catalogue called Sweet Spring.

Today’s card features a beautiful creative die called Cherry Blossom. Cherry blossoms are so pretty – one day I would love to go and see them in all their glory in Japan.

Cherry Blossom

After cutting a panel from Strathmore Bristol smooth white card stock, I blended on some blue ink with an inking blending tool. I die cut several cherry blossoms and coloured them with Copic markers before adhering them to the panel.

The sentiment is from an older Penny Black set called Sentiment Collection. I then 3D mounted the focal panel onto a white card base.
