Jane’s Doodles New Release Blog Hop and a Giveaway

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello and welcome to another Jane’s Doodles blog 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.

He is Risen – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello! With Easter just around the corner, I thought it was time to make an Easter card – and one with a very powerful message. You can also find it over on the Jane’s Doodle blog here.

The image is from the He is Risen set and is coloured with Copic markers. I added some Glossy Accents to the flowers. I felt that the card was a little plain, so I added a border, which I created with a score board.

It is hard to tell, but the middle portion of the banner is raised up on some mounting foam. I had to do this to cover a mis-stamp of the sentiment, but in the end, it looked better as it added a bit more interest to what was a very CAS card.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles He is Risen stamp set

Card: X-Press It blending card

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, VersaFine Onyx black ink

Other Supplies: Copic Markers, Prismacolor pencils, 3D mounting foam, Martha Stewart Score board, Glossy Accents

Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello! Thanks for joining me today for a blog hop for Jane’s Doodles Stamps. If you have arrived from Milka’s blog you are in the right place. If you want to start from the beginning, there is a blog hop order at the end of this post with links.

Today we are showcasing Jane’s latest stamp sets which are already in the Jane’s Doodles store – just in time for Easter.

Suzi’s Easter

Funny Bunny

He is Risen

I have three cards to share with you today – I just couldn’t stop! The first two use a combination of Suzi’s Easter and Funny Bunny.

All images are coloured with Copic Markers and on the first two cards I masked off the images and gently blended in some blue and green distress ink. I can’t stop using my clear Wink of Stella glitter brush pen at the moment, so all of my projects today have some shimmer on them. You can see some on the Easter eggs in the close up photo on the Hoppy Easter card.

And last, but not least, I have used the He is Risen stamp set to create a tag/bookmark, again coloured with Copic Markers.
