Thank you – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

I’m popping in quickly today to share a card I made using Jane’s Doodles  products. I masked off then stamped the new Wild Flowers stamp onto some Neenah solar white card stock and coloured it with Copic markers. I am having fun experimenting with adding little dots around my images of late – jut to give it some more visual interest.

I then added some thin card stock strips underneath the floral cluster, one of which I stamped the Thank you sentiment from the All Occasions stamp set. To complete the card I added in some white gel pen highlights with a Uniball Signo white gel pen.

Thanks for supporting me and my card making journey. You can always follow me on Instagram @marionvagg if you don’t already.

Jane’s Doodles New Release Blog Hop and a Giveaway

Jane's Doodle Banner


Hello and welcome to a Jane’s Doodles blog hop where the Design team are showcasing Jane’s latest stamp sets called Wild Flowers and Wild. You should have arrived from Kaja’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.

Wild Flowers

Wild

For my first card I stamped the large floral arrangement from the Wild Flowers onto some white card stock. The flowers were coloured with Copic markers. I added some light grey shading and dots around the image to add some subtle interest. The sentiment is from the Thankful stamp set.

Next up is a fun card using the Wild set – which I simply love! This set is going to get a good workout from me, as it is perfect for making cards for my kid’s friends!

I stamped all the images straight onto the die cut out panels and then coloured them with Copics. I had fun experimenting with the various green backgrounds and creating different textures. I was trying to break up all the green. The die cut is a MFT die called Stitched collage frame.

Giveaway:
In addition to Jane having a 30% off sale on all clear stamps this weekend, she is giving a stamp set of your choice to one lucky winner. All you need to do is comment on all the blogs in the hop and you’ll be in with a chance to win! The winner will be announced on Monday. Good luck!

Thinking of You – Penny Black ‘Share the Love’ Inspiration #4

Today I am sharing another card using Penny Black products from their latest ‘Share the Love’ release.

Hello! For today’s card I masked off the centre strip with some washi tape. I then stamped some of the Banner Blooms images (stamped off onto scrap paper first, then onto the panel to get a lighter image) in VersaFine Smoky gray ink. Once I had all the images stamped, I went to town painting using Zig Zig Clean Color real brush markers. I scribbled the ink onto an acrylic block then painted the images with a paintbrush/watercolour brush. I painted several layers, drying between each one. I also used the Zig’s direct to paper in some spots. This took me quite some time, but it was rather relaxing. When all the painting was done, I used some Prismacolor pencils to add in the final touches of shading and outlining.

After removing the mask I stamped the sentiment from the Only You stamp set.

I had done some practising on another piece and it was too good to throw out, so I die cut a tag using the Gift Tag creative dies.

Thanks for stopping by. To view and or purchase any of these new products from these releases, head to the Penny Black online store.

Until next time,

I Love You – Penny Black Share the Love Inspiration #1

Hello! I am back sharing a card for Penny Black using some awesome goodies from the latest ‘Share the Love’ release. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, this release has lots of inspiration for that someone special in your life.

I stamped and water coloured the images from the Tenderness stamp set with Zig clean color real water brush pens, then die cut them out using the coordinating cut outs. The banner and sentiment are from the Banner Blooms set. There is a coordinating cut out set for this stamp set as well, but I didn’t use it for this card.

Once I had all the images coloured and cut out, I arranged them onto some textured card stock with 3D mounting tape and then adhered the panel to a teal coloured card base.

Thanks for stopping by. To view and or purchase any of these new products from these releases, head to the Penny Black online store.

If you have any questions, just email me.

I’ll be back really soon with some more inspiration,

Jane’s Doodles – Hello, Chameleon and a DT call

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello. I have two Jane’s Doodles cards to share which have been on the Jane’s Doodles blog, but not here on my personal blog.

First up is a card that uses the Plumeria and Cactus stamp sets. I stamped and coloured the frangipani blooms with Copic markers and tucked in a few extra leaves to fill out the cluster. The sun rays on the card base is an old Simon Says Stamp die that is discontinued, which I die cut from some acetate and used it as a stencil.

Next up is this very CASE chameleon card using the Chameleon stamp set – who doesn’t love a good old googly eye?

Again I used Copic markers to colour the image. I embossed a stitched border to add some interest, using a MFT rectangle stax die.

And before I go, just giving you the heads up that Jane is having a Challenge DT call. A very exciting development for Jane and her stamp company. Head here for all the details if you wish to apply.

If you want to know anything about any of my cards, just contact me through the email icon on my blog.

Thanks for stopping by. Until next time,

Marion
