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.

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,

Christmas Joy x 3 – Penny Black

I am back again for Penny Black showcasing products from their two winter releases Season of Hope and Winter Wishes.

I have three cards to show you using the Mirthful creative die which I am in love it.

First up I adhered some coloured strips of card stock to the card base before adhering the negative space of the die cut over the strips. To finish off the sentiment, I white heat embossed ‘A time to’ which is from the Here’s to xmas stamp set. To add a small pop of colour and to make it a little more Christmasy, I used a portion of some holly from the Scarved Sweeties stamp set.

Next up I clear heat embossed the wreath from the Nature’s Allure stamp set onto both red and white card stock. I then die cut the Mirthful Joy die from both colours and inlay the pieces onto the card base. It is hard to tell from the photos, but the wreath is continuous across the white die cut as well. The “To the World” sentiment is from the Holiday Snippets stamp set. Again, I used a portion of the holly from the Scarved Sweeties stamp set.

Last but not least is this card. I swapped out the ‘O’ for a bauble from the Beautified Baubles creative die set. I went to town Distress inking the background with Peeled Paint and Mowed Lawn. I flicked on water as well as added some gel pen dots and I love the bokeh effect it created.

I white heat embossed ‘A time to’ which is from the Here’s to xmas stamp set as well as popped up the die cuts with some foam.

So there you have three different ways to use that Penny Black Mirthful Joy die. 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’ll be back really soon,

Wonderful You – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello. I have another Jane’s Doodles card to share with you today, one that was up on the JD blog earlier this week. Well as many of you know, for many months Jane was unable to send me any new sets die to postage restrictions to Australia. Thankfully that has changed now, and last week I received all the sets that I had missed out on since June….I love playing with new stamps.

Well I got to work straight away and I used the Wonderful You stamp set and created this.

I used some masking paper to mask off the oval and blended in some Distress Oxide inks (Abandoned Coral and Fossilized Amber). The flowers were coloured with Copics and fussy cut before rearranging them a thousand times before I can up with this. The sentiment is from the same set.

And I also realised I hadn’t shared these cards with you either – again all JD cards. This card uses the Seamus stamp set.

And this card uses the adorable Outdoors set – I can’t get enough of that moose!

If you have any questions about my cards, just contact me and I’d be happy to answer them.

Thanks for stopping by,

Marion
