You are Magical – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Good evening. I’m back sharing a card I had up on the Jane’s Doodles blog this week. I made it using the Magical stamp set and the sentiment came from the Unicorn stamp set.

I recently purchased this Cloud stencil from MFT (if you follow me you know I love cloud stencilling) and I love it. I started by created a cloud background using some different colours of Distress Oxide ink (Faded Jeans and Seedless Preserves). I then stamped and coloured the dragon and castle with Copic markers and fussy cut them out. The white cloud die cuts are from Penny Black and are called Silver Linings.

I adhered all the elements onto the cloud panel, popping some up on foam tape to add some dimension. The dragon has some clear Wink of Stella glitter on its wings and scales, but hard to see in the photos. I also added some white gel pen dots to the dragon’s body.

If you have any questions about my card, just email me.

I hope you have been getting some crafty time in.

Until next time,

Happy Birthday Kitty – Penny Black ‘Secret Garden’ Inspiration #4

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is secret-garden-facebook-graphic-1.jpg

Hello and Happy Easter! I hope you are safe and keeping sane! I’m back today sharing not one, but two projects using new products from the Penny Black release ‘Secret Garden’.

First I stamped the kitty image from the Fun Felines set onto some Neenah Solar white card stock and coloured it with Copic Markers. I fussy cut around the image.

To create the floral background, I stamped some of the foliage images from the Exquisite Envelope set in VersaFine Onyx black ink (as it is waterproof) around the edge of some Strathmore Bristol smooth white card stock. I then went to town and water coloured the images with my Zig Clean Colour real Brush pens and a water brush. It was so relaxing just to paint. Before adhering the kitty (which was foam mounted) I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Furry Smiles stamp set.

To finish off the card, I added some liquid pearl drops and some green dots (with a Copic marker) to add some subtle detail.

Next up I used the same kitty image from the Fun Felines set, but this time coloured him ginger instead. I stamped only one image from the Exquisite Envelope set repeatedly in VersaFine Sepia ink around the outside of the Tagged creative die.

The sentiment is from the Fun Felines set and was white heat embossed. I again mounted the kitty with some foam tape and added some white ribbon and thread to the top of the tag.

Hello and welcome to another Jane’s Doodles┬áblog hop where the Design Team are showcasing Jane’s latest stamp sets called Spring Icons and Tulips. You should have arrived from Milka’s blog. If you get lost along the way, there is a list of blog hop contributors at the end of this post.

Without further ado, here are the two new stamp sets.

Spring Icons

Tulips

My first card is a very simple one, but I love the pastel colours and the Pop-Art feel to it. I used some cute images from the Spring Icons stamp set and stamped them onto some Bristol card stock before water-colouring around the images. The sentiment was white heat embossed onto some black card stock and then I fussy cut around that.

I popped up the four little panels with some foam tape and this card was done.

Next, I stamped a single tulip bloom and some leaves using the Tulips stamp set and coloured it with Copic markers. The sentiment is from the Spring Icons set and was stamped in VersaFine onyx black ink.

Jane’s Doodles cards

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hey friends. I hope that you are doing OK in these unprecedented times. Schools haven’t officially closed in Australia, but many parents are choosing to keep their kids at home, so even though I am still going to school each day, all teaching has gone on-line! What a steep learning curve that has been over the past 2 weeks! I am now recording video lessons and managing an online class (with about 8 students still remaining at school!) So glad the Easter holidays are just around the corner!

Anyway, today I have some Jane’s Doodles projects to share with you from the past month. I’ll start with today’s card which is bright and happy one using the WildFlowers stamp set and the All Occasions sentiment stamp set.

I stamped the floral cluster in my stamping press and then rotated it 180 degrees and stamped again. Coloured it with Copics and added some lines with a marker to create a border. The sentiment is white heat embossed onto some black card stock and I added a touch of white gel pen to some flowers.

Next up are some older projects that I just haven’t got around to sharing until now. This tag was made with the Suzi’s Easter stamp set.

And this cute birthday card was made with the Unicorn and Magical stamp sets.

Thanks for stopping by. Email me if you want to know any additional information about my cards.

FREE SHIPPING: Jane has free worldwide shipping at the moment, so why not take advantage of that have a browse in the shop. Head here to view all of Jane’s stamps.

Stay safe and craft on! Until next time.

Fun and Carefree Tag – Penny Black ‘Secret Garden’ Inspiration #2

I’m back sharing a tag I’ve made using Penny Black products from the latest ‘Secret Garden’ release.

Today’s tag uses the sweet cling stamp called Flying By, which I stamped in Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured with Copics. I die cut it out using the coordinating Flying By cut out.

The tag die is an oldie, but a goodie die set, called Tagged. I used the Script cling stamp onto the background to add some interest with a brown ink. I also sponged the same ink around the outside of the tag to create a distressed look.

The white heat embossed sentiment is from this new release and is called Carefree Wishes. I popped up the bunny image with some mounting foam and added some cotton thread to complete the tag.

Thank you – Penny Black ‘Secret Garden’ Inspiration #1

Hi friends. I hope that things aren’t too chaotic in your neck of the woods! The good thing about our wonderful online community of card makers is that we can continue to make, share, enjoy and uphold each other online like we have always done!

Today I am sharing a card using Penny Black products from their latest ‘Secret Garden’ release – and what an awesome release it is as well.

I stamped the Penny Black Unforgettable cling stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto some Neenah Solar white card stock. I then went to town and coloured in this beauty using Copic markers – I was actually at the beach a few weeks ago colouring this one.

I wasn’t sure how to mount this onto my card base, so I trimmed around the image, fussing cutting around some of the outer leaves and flower buds. I then mounted this to a dark teal piece of card stock. Before adhereing to the base card, I lightly sponged on some dots using a blue ink and the Oscillations stencil. I reach for this stencil all the time when I want to add some subtle interest to the card base.

I finished off the card by adding a white heat embossed sentiment from the Million Thanks stamp set. I mounted the sentiment with some foam tape.
