Good Vibes Only – Jane’s Doodles card and video

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

Hey hey friends. I’m back with not only a Jane’s Doodles card, but I also made a video of the assembly process! I haven’t made a card video in over 8 years.

First up the card though. I stamped and coloured the images from the Summer Icons set and then coloured them with Copics. You may have seen I posted two short videos onto my IG account colouring the crab and the palm tree (@mademarionstudio).

I created the windows openings using a the Window Quad Square die from Sunny Studio stamps.

Here is a video of how I assembled the card.

I love how this card turned out. Summer is certainly on its way out here in Australia and autumn is pushing its way in. I miss summer already!

Thanks for joining me today,

Hello Sunshine – Jane’s Doodles

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

Happy Friday! I’m popping in quickly to share a Jane’s Doodles card of mine that was up on the JD blog recently. You can find the original post here.

I used the Spring Icons set to create this card. I stamped the images, coloured them with Copics and then fussy cut them out. I created some background scenes in each of the windows with some post-it notes for masking, a cloud stencil and some Distress Oxide inks before adhering all the elements on top, some with 3D mounting foam, and some straight onto the card.

I then adhered the front panel to a purple notecard.

I love creating these multiple mini-scene cards at the moment. I’m on a roll and have another one coming up next week!

Until then,

Happy Birthday – Jane’s Doodles (and LOTS of others cards too)

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

Hey friends…it’s been a while I know! My life has been crazy busy with the start of a new school year and all the prep and paperwork which comes along with that.

I have been crafting, but not really posting, but I am excited to share a Jane’s Doodles card or two with you today.

First up is this card which went live on the Jane’s Doodles blog yesterday. You can find the original post here.

The flamingos and foliage are from the Tropical Fun set and the flowers are from the Weird set. I reached for the All Occasions set for the sentiment.

All images were coloured with Copics and fussy cut. The background hearts is stencil from MFT. I haven’t used a heart die in ages either.

Now as I have been super busy, I haven’t been blogging some of my other recent JD cards. The usually appear on Instagram though, so if you aren’t following me there, I’d love it if you would @mademarionstudio

This next card (which can be found here) uses the Whales stamp set.

I love this little Easter tag (found here) which uses Suzi’s Easter and Spring stamp sets.

This card (original post found here) uses the Wildflowers stamp set.

This one (found here) uses the Hydrangea stamp set.

And last but not least is this cute little winter scene (found here). I love these little penguins which are from the Sweater Weather stamp set.

Phew! Thanks for sticking with me.

One more thing. If you don’t already know, I have been making and selling polymer clay earrings in my Etsy store. I have been exploring this new medium for a year now and finally feel confident enough to sell some! You can check out my Etsy store here – it’s called MadeMarionStudio. Here’s a peak of one of my latest earrings.

Thanks for sticking with me.
Until next time,

Jane’s Doodles New Release Blog Hop and a Giveaway

Hello and welcome to another Jane’s Doodles blog hop where the Design Team (and Laura Bassen) are showcasing Jane’s latest stamp sets – Sweater Weather and Weird.

You should have arrived from Milka’s blog.

Here are the two new sets:

Sweater Weather


Cute huh? I have two cards to share with you today. In this first card I’ve used all the adorable penguins from the Sweater Weather stamp set. I stamped the images with Memento ink and the coloured them with Copic markers. I blended in some snow hills onto each of the background pieces using a hand cut mask and several Distress ink colours.

I added some details to the sweaters using a white gel pen and I cut up the sentiment stamp to fit my design better.

Next up is an inside/outside card using Weird. This card was so much fun to make. I die cut a circle in the card front and adhered the sloth image across the opening (coloured with Copics again). I also added some foliage, but added in some leaves and flowers to the background cloud panel as well.

The XoXoXo sentiment is from the Sweater Weather set.

Happy New Year!

Hello! I thought I would get one last card in for 2020! What a year it has been.

Today I am sharing a Jane’s Doodles card which was up on the JD blog this week. You can find the original post here.

This card is made using the Wonderful You stamp set and the sentiment is from the Monster Squad set. Stamped and coloured with Copics. The background is some blended Distress Oxide ink and then textured with some green copic markers.

Bright and colourful and just the way I like it!

Thank you for your support in this very different (and difficult) year. May your 2021 be filled with God’s blessings.

Happy New Year.

Christmas Bunnies and Tags – Penny Black

I’m back again with some last minute Christmas ideas using Penny Black products from their two winter releases Season of Hope and Winter Wishes.

First up are these these two adorable bunnies from the Hoppy Holidays stamp set. I stamped and coloured them with Copics, then used Prismacolor pencils to add some shading. In order to add some more colour, I stamped the leaves along the top by using part of an image from the Nature’s Allure stamp set in green ink, then blended in some ink over the top. The sentiment is from the Scarved Sweeties set.

Next up are some fun and festive tags using the Get Comfy stamp set and the coordinating dies (Get Comfy cut out). The sentiments are from the Here’s to Xmas stamp set.

These were a lot of fun to make. Which one is your favourite? I’m leaning towards the scarf and beanie one.

To view and or purchase any of these new products from this release, head to the Penny Black online store.

If you have any questions, just email me.

I’m not sure I’ll be back again before Christmas, so I hope you have a blessed time with family and friends.

Merry Christmas,
