With Heartfelt Sympathy – Penny Black

Good evening! Today I have a card to share using some Penny Black products. I love ink blending so decided to pull out some awesome Distress Oxide ink colours – Squeezed marmalade, Spiced Marmalade and Candied Apple.

Once the panel was inked up and dried completely, I stamped the branches and bird (from the Penny Black You & Me stamp set) in Versamark ink and white heat embossed them. The sentiment is from the Penny Black Soar stamp set, also white heat embossed.

I added some translucent Nuvo drops around the branches for some additional details.

Deck the Halls – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hi! I’m back with another Jane’s Doodles card using a gorgeous stamp set called Deck the Halls. I am doing well – I think this is my second Christmas card I’ve made and it’s only October!

I pulled out a cheap set of watercolour paints for this one. Lots of layers and heat setting between layers. I thought I had ruined this on many occasions, but watercolours are very forgiving and somehow I kept adding and ended up with this! I sewed on some silver thread for something different.

Head on over to the Jane’s Doodles blog for more awesome inspiration.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Deck the Halls stamp set

Card: Neenah solar white card stock, Canson watercolour paper

Ink: Versamark ink, VersaFine Onyx Black ink

Other Supplies: Watercolour set, White embossing powder, Anti-static powder bag, Heat gun, 3D foam, Silver thread

Thinking of You Sunflowers

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hi! I’m back with a Jane’s Doodles card using a gorgeous stamp set called Sunflowers. Head on over to the Jane’s Doodles blog for more awesome inspiration.

I stamped and coloured the sunflower and leaves with Copic markers and fussy cut the images. I tend to do this instead of masking, as I like to shuffle all the images around (which I can do for ages) before deciding on a final layout. I am a visual person, so I have to see things in real life – not just picture them in my head).

The sentiment is from the All Occasions set. For the background, I decided to use some patterned paper – I have no idea where it is from as I very rarely used any, but I thought it went with the autumnal theme nicely. I coated the sunflower in a layer of clear Wink of Stella for some shine.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Sunflowers and All Occasions stamp sets

Card: Neenah solar white card stock

Ink: Memento Tuxedo black ink, VersFine Onyx Black ink

Other Supplies: Copic markers, MFT Stitched rectangle die, Cuttlebug, 3D mounting foam, Wink of Stella glitter brush pen
