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!

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.

I am totally in love with one of Jane’s Doodles newest sets called Monster Squad. Those monsters are just so cute and always put a smile on my face – especially when googly eyes are added. Here are a couple of projects I have made over the past couple of weeks that have been over on the Jane’s Doodle blog.

Love You and a snake!

Jane's Doodle Banner

I’m popping in quickly to share another card I have made with Jane’s Doodles stamps. To see the post over on the JD Blog go here.

Being a teacher I just love chalk boards. There is nothing better than writing on one, though they can be really messy with all that dust! I used to dream of being a teacher as a kid and had my own blackboard to play on. When I started teaching 16 years ago, I did have a chalk board, but they have all been replaced with white boards and interactive boards now – not quite the same to write on.

However, I can always recreate that dusty chalkboard look on my cards and that is what I have done today. To do this, I used a baby wipe and swiped on some white pigment ink onto the black card stock. The good thing about using a baby wipe is that you can always wipe off some of the ink if it is too much.

The flowers are from the Doodle Flowers stamp set and the Love you sentiment is from the Love stamp set. The flowers were coloured really simply with a sponge dauber and some Hero Arts inks.

Before I go, I want to share with you a photo of my kids and I and a friendly specimen that visited our school today. There is no better way to learn than to do it the hands-on way. (For the record it was very heavy and very cold to touch!)
