Coffee Time

Jane's Doodles Coffee Time

First up I’ve created a very CAS and one layer card using the Love Bird’s set. Coloured with Copics and I just love those google eyes – though the bottom bird looks a little coy 😉

JD I Love You | Marion Vagg

This next card uses the Coffee Time set which I love as I am a lover of coffee! My hubby is quite the coffee connoisseur so I have an in-house barista – and he knows exactly how I like my espresso 🙂 This card is painted with Kuretake watercolour paints. I’m still in love with them.

Christmas tags – Penny Black

simplicity sister

Hello again! Three posts in three days is such a rarity for me! But I do have some fun Christmas tags using some new Penny Black  products that I hope you will like.

A couple of week’s ago, I made this card which uses the same technique as the tags below. I stamped a whole lot of images from the Penny Black Tiny Treasures stamp set onto water colour, and then loosely water coloured around the images to create a fun and whimsical effect. To add some extra sparkle, I coloured in all the white images with a clear Wink of Stella glitter brush pen. They are really sparkly and shimmery in real life, but was hard to capture in the photos.

PB Peace on Earth tag | Marion Vagg

The sentiments are from the Holiday Snippets stamp set, which has just about every Christmas greeting you will ever need!

I can’t believe it is almost November! Yikes. Christmas will be here before we know it. How is your Christmas card/tag making going?

Until next time,

Love and Hugs – Sunny Studio

I’m back today with some cards using Sunny Studio stamps and dies. You can find my post here on the Sunny Studio blog.

This week the Design Team have been using the Birthday Smiles stamp set and the Fishtail Banner dies.

First up I have created a watercolour-y ice cream scene that just reminds me of summer. I white heat embossed the images and then coloured them with Distress inks and a paintbrush.

SS Hugs | Marion Vagg

It’s a bit hard to tell, but the scoops of ice-cream are all shimmery from a coat of clear Wink of Stella brush glitter pen.

Next up, is a graphic card design using the Fishtail Banner dies. I just love the stitched banner die – it is one of 4 designs to choose from in the set. Both the Hugs and the Love sentiments are from the Furever Friends die set, as are the heart accents.

Happy Birthday – Penny Black

simplicity sister

Today I have a colourful card showcasing some Penny Black products. I started by stamping the hexagon stamp from the Penny Black Textures stamp set repeatedly down a piece onto watercolour paper. I then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Next was the fun part – I went to town with a rainbow of Distress Ink colours, a paintbrush and some water.

Happy Birthday - Penny Black | Marion Vagg

I did some partial stamping to create the sentiment. The Happy is from the Sprinkles and Smiles stamp set and the Birthday is from the Good Day stamp set.

Jane’s Doodles Release Blog Hop

Jane's Doodle Banner

Today I am taking part in the Jane’s Doodles release blog hop. Three new sets have been released into the store.

Anemone

Under the Sea

Winnie Halloween

Jane's Doodles Winnie Halloween

First up I have made a card using the Anemone stamp set. I am really into adding texture with embossing paste at the moment. It creates subtle interest in background for a focal point. I coloured the white embossing paste with Antique Linen Distress ink. The Anemone is coloured with Copics and a Prismacolor pencil.

Next up is a cute whale from the Under the Sea set (which is out of stock, but it can be pre-ordered). To create the background, I blended in some Salty Ocean distress ink and then created the splatters with some water and had a paper towel on hand to mop up the moisture – removing some of the colour.

JD Whale of a birthday | Marion Vagg

Speaking of whales, there are a lot of them migrating north at the moment along the east coast of Australia. The kids and I went looking for them this afternoon and I did manage to catch a glimpse of one. Amazing creatures.
