Hello friends. I hope your week has been a great one. I have had some crafty time playing along with some new products from Penny Black’s new Dreaming release.
Today’s card uses an adorable Penny Black critter called A Big Hug. You know how much I love these cute bears! So stinkin’ adorable. I coloured the bear and background scene with Copic markers and for something different, I white heat embossed the sentiment which is from the Huggable stamp set.
The little flower is from a stamp set called Reserved Space. It had the perfect sized flower for this scene. The clouds are a creative die called Silver Linings.
Hello friends. Today I have many Jane’s Doodles cards that I am sharing with you. They have been over on the Jane’s Doodles blog, but I have neglected to share them here – so strap yourself in, as there are a few cards.
The first card is my latest card that went up on the Jane’s Doodles blog today. The link to that post is here. This card was very much inspired by this card from Michelle from The Card Grotto. I love Michelle’s clean and simple style, and this card caught my eye a while ago. Thanks for all your inspiration Michelle! I’m a big fan!
I white heat embossed the butterflies from the Doodle Butterflies stamp set and some hearts from the Unicorn set before ink blending over the top. The Sending Hugs portion of the sentiment is from the All Occasions stamp set.
The next card uses the new Jane’s Doodle Poppy stamp set. I stamped and coloured the images with Copic markers and added shading with Prismacolor pencils. The sentiment is from the Girlfriend set. The link to that post is here.
The next card uses Doodle Butterflies again. I stamped and coloured the images with Copic markers and created a Distress ink wash for the background. The sentiment is from the Girlfriend set. The link to that post is here.
I had fun pulling out the Dogs stamp set to create this little scene. Again coloured with Copics. The background is Distress Oxide ink blending. The link to that post is here.
Moving along…This card uses the Happy Camper set. I love creating little scenes. The link to that card is here.
It’s no surprise that I love to create tags, and this is no exception. The link to this card is here. I used texture paste and a stencil to create the background. It created a perfect backdrop for the flowers from the Plumeria stamp set. The sentiment is from the All Occasions set.
This next card makes me happy! I love how it turned out. You can find the original link here. I used a mask to create the background. The stamp sets used are Rain or Shine and Life is Good.
I’m back with one more card using products from the Penny Black’s Full Bloom release.
Today’s card is a really clean and simple one layer card featuring a cute bear from the Number 1 stamp set. There is a coordinating die set to match this stamp set, but I didn’t use it on this project.
I stamped the image and coloured it with Copic markers. I decided to use the sentiment ‘teacher’ but there are other options in the set as well. I added some ground and then scored a border around the outside with my scoring stylus and score board. Couldn’t get any more simple than that!
Hello! I have been busy crafting at my desk this weekend. Today’s card uses products from Penny Black’s Full Bloom release.
This bird image is from the Peaceful Time stamp set, and I stamped it in Copic friendly ink onto some Neenah solar white card stock and coloured it with Copics. I used a Spellbinders circle die to cut around the image. I did extend the branch in the image to reach the edges of the circle using a Copic multi-liner pen.
To create the impressed leaves in the background, I took two of the small leaf dies from the Peaceful Time Cut out creative die set, and repeatedly ran them through my die cutting machine, using a tan embossing mat to impress the images, rather than cut them out. This created a subtle, textured background to mount the focal image onto.
Happy Friday! I’m back with another card using products from the latest Penny Black release called Full Bloom.
Today’s card uses a cute critter from a set called It’s Your Day. There are some cute images in this set.
I painted a subtle watercolour wash for the background. Once it was dry, I stamped the image in VersaFine Onyx black ink. I then stamped the image again with Copic friendly ink onto some Copic friendly card stock and coloured the image with Copics. I fussy cut around the mouse and balloon, then adhered them onto the watercolour piece. The sentiment is from the same set.
Hello. I hope your week is off to a great start. I’m back with another Penny Black card using products from their latest release.
Today I have used a fabulous new creative die set called Rustic Birdhouse. I love the woodgrain detail of the house. I die cut the bird house and then coloured it with Copic markers. I die cut the outer house frame three times and stacked them up for dimension.
I masked the edges of the card with some washi tape and I also created a cloud mask from some masking paper. I then sponged on some clouds (Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink) and greenery (Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink) to create a subtle background.
The sentiment is from a great new set called Special Sentiments and is stamped in VersaFine Onyx black ink.
Happy Sunday! I’m back today with another cute Penny Black critter from their latest release called Full Bloom. It’s no secret I’m in love with these little bears, and this one I’ve used today has especially won my heart. It’s called …Star and has a coordinating creative die as well.
My daughter loves soccer and this is her second season. I made this card for a friend of hers who plays on the same team, and celebrated her birthday this weekend.
To make something a little different to my standard card, I made a gatefold card. The image was coloured with Copic Markers and the sun and background were created with Distress Oxide inks (Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn, Squeezed Lemonade and Fossilized Amber).
The #1 die cut on the inside of the card comes in the same …Star cut out die set. The friend sentiment is from the Number 1 stamp set and it is a great set as it has many names which could be substituted such as Dad, Mom, Teacher etc.
