Cute Penny Black Critters – Penny Black

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is delight-fb.jpg

Hello. I am back today sharing 3 cards I have made with some adorable Penny Black critters from the Delight Release. I had so much fun colouring these critters.

First up is my favourite if the 3 cards. I used only a portion of the Bundles Birthday stamp set and framed him within a triangle from the Triangles creative die cuts set. The background stamp is a really neat graphic design cling stamp which I love, called Contemporary. The sentiment die cut is from a creative cuts set called Thanks & Hello.

Next up is a cute bunny from the Cuddlesome stamp set. I framed the bunny in an inked cloud frame, which I masked off, and coloured the image with Copics. Simple, but cute. The sentiment is from this Pansy Gaze stamp set.

Last, but not least, is this cute bear from the Bear-y Wishful stamp set. I also used the coordinating cut out die. I paired it up with a balloon from the Balloons die set.

To view and or purchase any of these new products from this release and the latest releases, head to the Penny Black online store. If you have any questions, just email me.

Dude! – Jane’s Doodles

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

Happy Tuesday! I’m popping in to share a card of mine that is up on the Jane’s Doodles blog. You can find the original post here.
I just had to use the newly released Surf’s Up! again – but this time I used that cheeky mouse. SO much fun. I used 3 different Distress Oxide inks on the background (Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch) with lots of sponging, spraying water and stencilling, which I repeated several times.

I coloured in the mouse with Copics and did some fussy cutting. Cute don’t ya think?

I’m currently on school holidays and we are in a two week lockdown, so I’ll have plenty of time to get crafty!

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,

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

Weird

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.

Marion
