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.

Hugs – Jane’s Doodles

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

Happy weekend! I have a fun Jane’s Doodles card to share with you today using the Free as a Bird stamp set. I love to colour these birds really bright – it makes me happy. All coloured with Copics. I also used this die from Sunny Studios stamps. Clean and simple just the way I like it.

I added some white gel pen detail to each bird for some interest. This card makes me smile.

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!

Thanks for stopping by,

Jane’s Doodles New Release Hop and a Giveaway

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

Hello and welcome to another Jane’s Doodles hop where the Design Team and special guests are showcasing Jane’s latest stamp sets – Surf’s Up and Fresh Cut Flowers. I am once again VERY excited about these new additions as they are so cute…especially the Surf’s Up! So here they are in all their glory…

Surf’s Up

Fresh Cut Flowers

For this first card I masked off the sand area with some post-it notes and then stamped the images from Surf’s Up, so that they are buried in the sand. I then used a Copic multi-liner to draw over the sand edge before colouring in the whole image with Copic markers. I simply love this alligator.

To create the impression of sand, I used 3 different copic marker colours and dotted them on. To blur the bottom and side edges a bit, I went over it with a colourless marker.

My next card uses one of the gorgeous floral arrangements from the Fresh Cut Flowers set. I stamped it in the corner, then used a ruler and Copic multi-liner to draw a border around the image. I love colouring florals and making them look really bright and vibrant. The sentiment is from an older set called Anemone. To add some tone-on-tone detail to the base card, I sponged on some ink using this stencil.

Jane’s Doodles New Release Blog Hop and a Giveaway

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

Hello and welcome to another Jane’s Doodles blog hop where the Design Team (and three uber talented guests – Daniel Diaz, Wanda Guess and Laura Bassen) are showcasing Jane’s latest stamp sets – Old is Gold, Hope and Road Trip.
You should have arrived from Kaja’s blog.
I have three cards to share with you today. First up uses the Hope stamp set. Such a pretty floral image. There are additional images in the set, but I just used the main floral cluster in this one.

A very simple card – coloured with Copics and mounted onto a white card base.

Next up, this card again uses the Hope stamp set, but I did some masking and used the Old is Gold stamp set as well. Coloured with Copics and mounted onto a card base. To add some additional detail, I sponged in some sun rays with a subtle soft sand ink colour.

Last, but not least, is this cute stamp set called Road Trip. These critters are just way too adorable and the added extras on the roof can be stacked very whimsically. Again all coloured with Copics.
