Jane’s Doodles – Good Vibes Only

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hi, I’m back to share a couple of Jane’s Doodles cards with you. First up is a summery and sunny beach themed card. I am soooo over winter here in Australia. It has been really cold and windy and most unpleasant. But not on this card.

I stamped and coloured 3 images from the the Summer Icons set. I die cut them with a small circle die. On the blue base card, I stamped the wave pattern using the Patterns stamp set. I then die cut 3 more circles into the coloured panel and popped it up with some foam tape onto the card base. I then adhered the images into the cut outs so that they are set down.

The next card is a card using the new Peony stamp set. Coloured with Copics markers. The sentiment is from the All Occasions stamp set.

Currently Jane is on holiday as is the shop, but she will be back on August the 20th.

Thanks for stopping by. Until next time,

Congrats – Penny Black Dreaming Inspiration #4

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is penny-black-dreaming-june-2019.jpg

Hello! I’m back again with some more Penny Black goodness from the Dreaming release.

Today’s card is a simple one – just dies and Copic markers! I used the You’re a Star creative die and die cut it several times. I then coloured in each star with Copic markers. I could have die cut the stars from coloured cardstock, but I wanted to add some shading and Copics allowed me to do that. The sentiment is from the Number 1 cut out creative die set (from the previous release). I created a thicker sentiment by adhering several black die cuts together.

I also created a matching tag. Hopefully you can see the shimmer I added onto the stars.

You’ve a Star – Penny Black Full Bloom Inspiration #2

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.

The cloud die cut is an older one, but a good one called Silver Linings.

The sun comes with the Friendship cut out die set.

Bear Hugs – Penny Black

simplicity sister

Hello friends! It’s been a little while since I have posted. Not because I haven’t been card making, just because life has been super busy and I haven’t got around to posting!

Today’s card is another adorable Penny Black critter from the Timeless release called Flower Teddy, which I haven’t had a chance to colour until now. I reached for Copic markers again (no surprise there), but I spiced things up a bit with an artsy and inky border.

The border was created by die cutting an oval from white card stock and then inking it with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink. I them spritzed the PB Honeycomb stencil with water and placed it randomly onto the inked border (where the water bleached the ink). To add to the distressed look, I also flicked on water, added some Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide ink and then in some places, inked over the stencil.

The sentiment is from the Happy Hugs stamp set (which I only stamped the Hugs and left off the Happy part). I finished off the card with some white gel pen details on the flowers and grounded the image by creating a floor with Prismacolor pencils.

Black products used:
30-543 Flower Teddy stamp set
25-012 Honeycomb stencil
30-524 Happy Hugs

Card: Neenah Solar white card stock

Sending Hugs – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

It’s been a little quiet here on the blog as I’ve been enjoying the last of my summer holidays. But I’m back today with two Jane’s Doodles cards.

This first card features my favourite Jane’s Doodles floral set which is called Bloom. I stamped the images, coloured them with Copic markers and then fussy cut them out. I embossed the card base with a Penny Black stencil and tan embossing mat and mounted the flowers onto a MFT dome die cut. The sentiment is form the All Occasions stamp set.

Next up is a card that was on the Jane’s Doodles blog a couple of week’s ago. See the original post here. This card was inspired by a card made by Isha Gupta which you can find here. I loved her colour combo and the layout.

For this card I used the Free-As-a-Bird and Tropical Fun stamp sets.
