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!

A couple of projects – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello crafty peeps. I hope you have been getting in lots of crafty time – because I certainly haven’t. I feel like I am burning the candle at both ends at the moment – and to top it off I have hurt my back, at the gym of all places! I just can’t seem to win!

Anyway, I have a couple of Jane’s Doodles projects to share with you from the last couple of weeks. You can find the posts on the Jane’s Doodles blog here and here.

First up this little tag uses the Special Delivery stamp set. The stamp has a baby in the pram, but I swapped it out for the teddy bear.

My second card uses quite a few Jane’s Doodle stamp sets. I created the bubbly background using the Stripes and Dots stamp set. I used first, second and third generation stamping in 3 different colours as well as white. I stamped onto watercolour paper, as that is what I had layering around. For the smallest dot, I used the eraser on the end of my pencil. The crab is from the Under the Sea set and coloured with Copics. The sentiment is from the Doodle Flowers stamp set.

Wishing You a Cool Christmas – Sunny Studios

Hello and Merry Christmas. I hope that you have a wonderful day filled with much love and laughter. Australia had just finished celebrating Christmas when this post goes live, but our family is actually delaying our Christmas celebrations until Sunday, when my  sister and her family arrive (they couldn’t make it Christmas Day). My Mum and Dad have already arrived, as has my eldest sister and her husband, so it has been lovely having a house full. My kids have been very patient and can’t wait for their cousins to arrive. I love having all my family altogether.

Anyway, I have a Sunny Studio tag to share with you using the Bundled Up stamp set and its co-ordinating dies.

The penguin was coloured with Copic Markers as are the sun rays, which is a Simon Says Stamp die. I’ll add the supplies list later.

If you celebrate Christmas, what did you get up to?

Thanks for stopping by and Merry Christmas,

I Love You – Sunny Studio

Hello. Today I have a fun little tag to share with you using some Sunny Studio stamps which is also over on the Sunny Studio blog. I’ve used the Harvest Happiness stamp set and with a little bit of masking and creative imagination, I’ve turned the turkey from the set into a chicken.

Happy Harvest Sunny Studio

Sunny Studio I love you | Marion Vagg

I hand drew the chicken’s combs and added a bow tie as well. I had to mask off the little bit of skin hanging down from the turkey’s beak (called a snood I discovered) with a teeny tiny mask. I also masked off a part of the sentiment to just make it say I Love You.

My little scene is coloured with Copic markers.

Stamps: Sunny Studio Harvest Happiness Stamp set

Card: X-Press It Blending card

Ink: Memento ink – Tuxedo Black

Other Supplies: Copic markers, Foam dimensionals, Stickles – Christmas Red, Memento marker – Tuxedo Black, Tag, Twine


I hope I have given you some inspiration and maybe you will look at some of your sets and find an unintended way to use them.

Thanks for visiting,

Purrfect Birthday – Sunny Studio

I’m back with a really quick and simple technique using some Sunny Studio products. You can see my post here. I used the Furever Friends stamp set and its coordinating dies, which have some really cute cat images.

If you are not confident with colouring images, or like me, was running short on time, then maybe this could be a technique for you to try. Instead of placing the colour onto my images, I created a really vibrant watercolour background with distress inks. I love the contrast.

To get the background to be so vibrant, I added several layers of Distress inks, making sure to heat set between each application. The colours used from the top down were Barn Door, Festive Berries, Ripe Persimmon, a mixture of Ripe Persimmon and Wild Honey and Mustard Seed.

The black sentiment strip tied the whole project together. I love how it turned out – but my daughter just couldn’t understand why I didn’t colour in the cats!
