Just For You – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello, I’m back with another card for Jane’s Doodles. Today I have used the the Life is Good stamp set. Jane is currently enjoying a much needed break, so the store won’t be open until the 20th of August.

I stamped the images onto some Neenah white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then coloured the images with Copic markers before fussy cutting them out.

I masked off a rectangle on the card base and created the green background with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Oxide inks.


If you have any questions, just contact me and I’d be happy to answer them.

Thanks for stopping by,

Cat Polaroid – Penny Black ‘Refreshing’ Inspiration #2

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is refreshing-banner-1.jpg

I’m back with my second instalment using the latest release from Penny Black called Refreshing.

I have not one, but two cards to share which are very similar – I just changed up the cat images, the colours and the sentiments.

Both of these cute cat images are from the Plant Joy stamp set. The sentiments are once again made from two different sets. The ‘You’ is from the Only You stamp set (from a previous release), and the ‘are the cat’s meow’ and ‘make life sweet’ portions are from the set called Trust Me Builder. I used the Polaroid creative die for both cards.

It doesn’t show so well in the first photo, but in the second photo you can see that I have used the Zigs and Zags stencil to add some subtle tone-on-tone detail to the base card.

In the second card I again used the Oscillations stencil.

Until then,

Hello – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello! I am back with some Jane’s Doodles goodness. Today over on the JD blog I have made this super cute (and super quick) card using the Outdoors and Spring Time stamp sets (I can’t link to the store at the moment as Jane has gone on a much needed holiday for a few weeks).

The animals in this stamp set always make me smile. First I stamped the wreath onto some light blue coloured card stock. I then created a mask before stamping the moose. All coloured with Copic Markers and I add some details in with Prismacolor pencils.

If you have any questions, just contact me and I’d be happy to answer them.

You Are Appreciated – Penny Black ‘Refreshing’ Inspiration #1

Hello! Today I have the pleasure of sharing with you a card I have made using the latest release from Penny Black called Refreshing.

Today’s card features a sweet critter which comes from the Plant Joy stamp set. I stamped it onto some Neenah white card stock and coloured him in with Copic Markers. To add in some of the finer details and shading, I used Prismacolor pencils.

The sentiment is made from two different sets. The ‘You’ is from the Only You stamp set (from a previous release), and the ‘are appreciated’ portion is from a set from this release called Trust Me Builder.

For the dots in the background card base were made using the Oscillations stencil.

Birthday Wishes – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

It’s Friday and I am finally on school holidays! It has been such a long and crazy term, teaching it half online and then the second half face-to-face. This year has professionally stretched me in more ways than I was anticipating – but finally I can now have 2 weeks to relax and play!

I’m sharing a Jane’s Doodles card that I made earlier in the week using Oh Ship!, Under the Sea and Birthday Wishes. I love making cute little scenes and many of Jane’s set help me do it so easily!

The frame I used is part of this MFT die – I just cut off the parts I didn’t need. All images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo black onto Neenah Solar white card stock and I fussy cut them out.

If you have any questions, just contact me and I’d be happy to help.

Congratulations – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hi there. I’m getting a little bit slack posting to my blog of late. I’m an Instagram girl (@mademarionstudio) as I find it quick and easy. Most of my cards end up over there, as well as other bits and bobs, so feel free to follow if you don’t already.

I am posting a card for Jane’s Doodles which was up on her blog over a week ago. Head here to see that post.

I used the Special Delivery stamp set (stork and baby) and coloured them with Copics. The sentiment is from the All Occasions stamp set.

To create the cloud background, I used this Cloud Stencil from My Favorite Things and some Distress Oxide ink.

If you have any questions, just contact me and I’d be happy to help.

Hello – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

I’m back again, and unlike my last post, I have a card to share! I hope you managed to hop along on the Jane’s Doodles new release blog hop. If not, head here to begin the hop – and there is also a chance to win a stamp set of your choice! Jane is also having a 30% off sale.

Today it is my turn on the JD blog, and I have created a colourful floral card using the Bloom stamp set.

I had some fun with some texture paste, which I haven’t used in ages! I pulled out the Small Brick Wall stencil from MFT – I love the imperfections around the edges.

I stamped and coloured the flowers in Versamark ink onto some Strathmore Bristol card stock and did some watercolouring with some Zig Real Colour Brush markers.

I die cut a rectangle frame from cream card stock using the MFT Stitched Rectangle Stax dies and the Hello sentiment is actually part of this Christmas die set from Penny Black.

I added dimension to most of the elements using mounting foam. If you have any questions about my card, just email me.

Until next time,

Marion
