Jane’s Doodles cards x 3

Jane's Doodle Banner

Happy Sunday! I’m getting a little slack in keeping up with my blog posts! I find Instagram so much more convenient! I have however been very busy with the start of a new school year – there is always so much to organise!

Anyway, today I have three Jane’s Doodles┬ácard to share with you, and I love how they turned out.

This first card uses Jane’s new Wild stamp set. I simply love this set. This is a very simple card really. I stamped the images onto the MFT Stitched Dome Stax, and then coloured it with Copic markers. The grass at the front is fussy cut and adhered along the bottom, to add a little dimension.

I popped up the scene onto the card base using 3D mounting foam.

The next card is a Valentine’s Day card I made using the Seamus stamp set. It is very similar to the last card where the focal scene is stamped and coloured with Copics and then 3D mounted onto the card base. I added some glossy accents to the heart.

And the last card features the To the Moon stamp set. I had so much fun making this card. The images were stamped, coloured with Copics and fussy cut. The background night sky was really fun to make. I got all inky, blending in many different colours of Distress Oxide Ink. Once dry, I then splattered white pigment ink to create the stars. The stitched frame is a MFT stitched collage frame die.

The sentiment is from the same set and is white heat embossed. I popped up the stitched collage frame using 3D mounting foam.

Thanks for hanging in there with me. You can always follow me on Instagram @marionvagg if you don’t already.

Wild Flowers

Wild

For my first card I stamped the large floral arrangement from the Wild Flowers onto some white card stock. The flowers were coloured with Copic markers. I added some light grey shading and dots around the image to add some subtle interest. The sentiment is from the Thankful stamp set.

Next up is a fun card using the Wild set – which I simply love! This set is going to get a good workout from me, as it is perfect for making cards for my kid’s friends!

I stamped all the images straight onto the die cut out panels and then coloured them with Copics. I had fun experimenting with the various green backgrounds and creating different textures. I was trying to break up all the green. The die cut is a MFT die called Stitched collage frame.

Sending Kitty Cat Love – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hey friends. I am back today sharing with you another Jane’s Doodles card. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I thought I would do a slightly different take on ‘love’ card – for that someone special who loves cats! It is not secret that I love cats.

I used the Cats stamp set along with the Doodle Butterfly and Pucker Up! stamp sets for the sentiment and the hearts.

Now to make this card extra special, I added a mini action wobble behind the cat to keep things fun!

Thinking of You – Penny Black ‘Share the Love’ Inspiration #4

Today I am sharing another card using Penny Black products from their latest ‘Share the Love’ release.

Hello! For today’s card I masked off the centre strip with some washi tape. I then stamped some of the Banner Blooms images (stamped off onto scrap paper first, then onto the panel to get a lighter image) in VersaFine Smoky gray ink. Once I had all the images stamped, I went to town painting using Zig Zig Clean Color real brush markers. I scribbled the ink onto an acrylic block then painted the images with a paintbrush/watercolour brush. I painted several layers, drying between each one. I also used the Zig’s direct to paper in some spots. This took me quite some time, but it was rather relaxing. When all the painting was done, I used some Prismacolor pencils to add in the final touches of shading and outlining.

After removing the mask I stamped the sentiment from the Only You stamp set.

I had done some practising on another piece and it was too good to throw out, so I die cut a tag using the Gift Tag creative dies.

Until next time,

A Time For Love – Penny Black ‘Share the Love’ Inspiration #3

Hello! My school holidays are quickly coming to an end and next week school starts again. But no complaints here as I have had fun crafting, enjoying no routine and just relaxing!

Today I am sharing another instalment for Penny Black using products from their latest ‘Share the Love’ release. You can check out all the new products here.

I adore these two love bears, which are from the Take Me Away stamp set. I stamped them onto some Bristol card stock and used Zig Clean Color real brush markers to water colour them. The sentiment is from the Love Language stamp set.

I painted in a simple sky in the background to complete the scene. I added in some white gel pen detail to the balloons before adhering it to a blue notecard.

Thinking of You – Penny Black ‘Share the Love’ Inspiration #2

Hello again! I am back with another card for Penny Black using some products from their latest ‘Share the Love’ release. You can check out all the new products here.

Today’s card uses an adorable bear stamp called Fur-ever Yours. Isn’t he the sweetest? I coloured him with Copic markers and die cut it out with the Fur-ever Yours cut out. The sentiment was white heated embossed over the top of his belly using an awesome new set called Only You.

I mounted the bear onto a die cut panel which was made using the Stitched Stackers die set (which is from a previous release). To create the striped background, I cut some coloured card stock into strips and adhered them to the card base – making sure it was centred.

It’s hard to tell from the photos, but the heart has some subtle shimmer and I added some black enamel accents to the bear’s eyes. I love adding all the little details.

I Love You – Penny Black Share the Love Inspiration #1

Hello! I am back sharing a card for Penny Black using some awesome goodies from the latest ‘Share the Love’ release. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, this release has lots of inspiration for that someone special in your life.

I stamped and water coloured the images from the Tenderness stamp set with Zig clean color real water brush pens, then die cut them out using the coordinating cut outs. The banner and sentiment are from the Banner Blooms set. There is a coordinating cut out set for this stamp set as well, but I didn’t use it for this card.

Once I had all the images coloured and cut out, I arranged them onto some textured card stock with 3D mounting tape and then adhered the panel to a teal coloured card base.

I’ll be back really soon with some more inspiration,
