Unicorns and Rainbows – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

My daughter was invited to a unicorn and rainbow themed birthday party last weekend, so that called for Jane’s Unicorn set.

I started by die cutting a tag from blue cardstock. I then die cut a cloud border die from masking paper and used an ink blending tool and some Salty Ocean Distress ink to create the clouds. Then it was a simple matter of stamping the rainbow and unicorn onto some white card stock and colouring them with Copic markers. After fussy cutting them out, I added several layers of a Wink of Stellar clear glitter brush pen to the rainbow and wings/mane. It is very shimmery in real life, but isn’t captured in the photo. The sentiment is from the Cake! stamp set.

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

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.

Happy Birthday Turtle Tag – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Good evening! Today I am over on the Jane’s Doodle blog using one of Jane’s latest sets called Belated Birthday. I just love me a turtle and this set also has some great snails as well.

The background is quite textured. I found it in my craft pile of unfinished projects (that pile is quite big mind you!) and it was made with some texture paste coloured with distress ink and a stencil from MFT. I have no idea which colour of Distress ink I used though! I have covered the cake and party hat with some clear Wink of Stella, but it doesn’t show up very well in the photo.

This tag is off to my Dad as it was his birthday last week – and I’m a bit late in getting it to him.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Belated Birthday and Doodle Flowers II stamp sets

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

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Distress ink ??

Other Supplies: Copic Markers, Clear Wink of Stella Glitter brush pen, Texture Paste, My Favorite Things stencil – Brick Wall, Palette knife, Foam squares, Paper Smooches Tag die, Cuttlebug, Hole Punch, Uniball White Signo gel pen

Thanks for your company today,

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.

Christmas Gift Tags – Penny Black

simplicity sister

Merry Christmas! I hope you are all enjoying this wonderful time of the year celebrating the birth of Jesus. I’m all ready for Christmas and for the first time ever, we will be spending Christmas Day with just the four of us and no extended family (but we will be spending time with friends).

Today I have some Christmas tags to share with you made with Penny Black products. I have gone for a simple black and white theme with a pop of colour!

The first tag uses the Tagged Creative die as well as parts of the Poinsettia Bough Creative die, that I coloured with Copic markers. The sentiment is from the Rejoice with Joy stamp set.

The sentiment on the second tag is from the Festive Cheer stamp set, and the floral elements are from the Layered Scene Creative die. I distressed this one with some white pigment ink and a baby wipe to create a chalkboard effect.
