It’s Friday and I am finally on school holidays! It has been such a long and crazy term, teaching it half online and then the second half face-to-face. This year has professionally stretched me in more ways than I was anticipating – but finally I can now have 2 weeks to relax and play!
Hi there. I’m getting a little bit slack posting to my blog of late. I’m an Instagram girl (@mademarionstudio) as I find it quick and easy. Most of my cards end up over there, as well as other bits and bobs, so feel free to follow if you don’t already.
I am posting a card for Jane’s Doodles which was up on her blog over a week ago. Head here to see that post.
Good evening. I’m back sharing a card I had up on the Jane’s Doodles blog this week. I made it using the Magical stamp set and the sentiment came from the Unicorn stamp set.
I recently purchased this Cloud stencil from MFT (if you follow me you know I love cloud stencilling) and I love it. I started by created a cloud background using some different colours of Distress Oxide ink (Faded Jeans and Seedless Preserves). I then stamped and coloured the dragon and castle with Copic markers and fussy cut them out. The white cloud die cuts are from Penny Black and are called Silver Linings.
I adhered all the elements onto the cloud panel, popping some up on foam tape to add some dimension. The dragon has some clear Wink of Stella glitter on its wings and scales, but hard to see in the photos. I also added some white gel pen dots to the dragon’s body.
If you have any questions about my card, just email me.
Hello and Happy Easter! I hope you are safe and keeping sane! I’m back today sharing not one, but two projects using new products from the Penny Black release ‘Secret Garden’.
First I stamped the kitty image from the Fun Felines set onto some Neenah Solar white card stock and coloured it with Copic Markers. I fussy cut around the image.
To create the floral background, I stamped some of the foliage images from the Exquisite Envelope set in VersaFine Onyx black ink (as it is waterproof) around the edge of some Strathmore Bristol smooth white card stock. I then went to town and water coloured the images with my Zig Clean Colour real Brush pens and a water brush. It was so relaxing just to paint. Before adhering the kitty (which was foam mounted) I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Furry Smiles stamp set.
To finish off the card, I added some liquid pearl drops and some green dots (with a Copic marker) to add some subtle detail.
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.
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.

I hope you are doing OK in your neck of the woods. Today was my first day working from home – completely online with my students, whilst trying to supervise my own two kids doing their online work! We survived! Take care and keep on crafting!
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.
