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.

Hello Friend – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello there friends! Happy New Year. Can you believe we have ticked over into 2020?

Well I have been rather silent for a while – I actually took some time off from my DT work and card making in general, as I just needed a break. December is hectic in my household, with school finishing up for the year, my kid’s birthdays and Christmas. Plus we added in a much needed family summer holiday, which we very much enjoyed.

Well I am back at my crafting desk now and am enjoying the slower pace of life. I’m onto my third novel already!

Anyway, I’m back with a Jane’s Doodle card to share with you using the Monster Squad stamp set. The images are coloured with Copic markers and I fussy cut them out.

I managed to get some new crafty goodies for Christmas, and the die cut frame is one of them. It is the stitched collage frame from My Favorite Things, but I only used a portion of it. The sentiment is white heat embossed and is from the same Jane’s Doodles Monster Squad set.

Thanks for stopping by today – I appreciate it. Remember to email me if you have any questions about my card.

I’ll be back really soon,

Marion

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,

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 set called Cozy Up! 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 is the Cozy Up! stamp set.

I’ve made two very different cards using this set. The first one has quite a retro feel to it. I masked off several areas using washi tape, and made sure that the stamps fit into the space I was creating for them. I then inked up each rectangle using a variety of Distress Oxide inks (I gave my daughter free range of the colour choices and where to put them – and I think she did a great job). All that was left to do, was stamp the images from the set with a new rich black ink – I used VersaFine Onyx black ink.

The second card is a little bit more traditional in style. I stamped and coloured the images in with Copics and used a MFT die to cut out the arched shape. This sentiment is from an older set (but one I reach for ALL the time) and is called All Occasions. I haven’t used patterned paper in so long, so it was fun to create a wallpaper feel for the background.

Giveaway:
In addition to Jane having a 25% off sale on all clear stamps until this Wednesday, 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! Good luck!

Hugs – Penny Black Dreaming Inspiration #6

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

Hi. I’m back sharing another Penny Black card using yet another cute bear image from the Dreaming release. This bear stamp is called Pawsome Present. I also used the Polaroid die and die cut it from some green card stock. To add some interest to the frame, I stamped some foliage images in green ink for a tone one tone effect. These foliage images are from the Special Friends and the Butterfly Garden sets.

For the subtle chevron pattern on yellow base card, I inked up a sponge dauber with some yellow ink and used the Zigs & Zags stencil. The sentiment is from the Huggable stamp set.

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

If you have any questions, just contact me.
