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.

Fun and Carefree Tag – Penny Black ‘Secret Garden’ Inspiration #2

I’m back sharing a tag I’ve made using Penny Black products from the latest ‘Secret Garden’ release.

Today’s tag uses the sweet cling stamp called Flying By, which I stamped in Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured with Copics. I die cut it out using the coordinating Flying By cut out.

The tag die is an oldie, but a goodie die set, called Tagged. I used the Script cling stamp onto the background to add some interest with a brown ink. I also sponged the same ink around the outside of the tag to create a distressed look.

The white heat embossed sentiment is from this new release and is called Carefree Wishes. I popped up the bunny image with some mounting foam and added some cotton thread to complete the tag.

Jane’s Doodles cards x 3

Jane's Doodle Banner

Happy Sunday! I’m getting a little slack in keeping up with my blog posts! I find Instagram so much more convenient! I have however been very busy with the start of a new school year – there is always so much to organise!

Anyway, today I have three Jane’s Doodles┬ácard to share with you, and I love how they turned out.

This first card uses Jane’s new Wild stamp set. I simply love this set. This is a very simple card really. I stamped the images onto the MFT Stitched Dome Stax, and then coloured it with Copic markers. The grass at the front is fussy cut and adhered along the bottom, to add a little dimension.

I popped up the scene onto the card base using 3D mounting foam.

The next card is a Valentine’s Day card I made using the Seamus stamp set. It is very similar to the last card where the focal scene is stamped and coloured with Copics and then 3D mounted onto the card base. I added some glossy accents to the heart.

And the last card features the To the Moon stamp set. I had so much fun making this card. The images were stamped, coloured with Copics and fussy cut. The background night sky was really fun to make. I got all inky, blending in many different colours of Distress Oxide Ink. Once dry, I then splattered white pigment ink to create the stars. The stitched frame is a MFT stitched collage frame die.

The sentiment is from the same set and is white heat embossed. I popped up the stitched collage frame using 3D mounting foam.

Thanks for hanging in there with me. You can always follow me on Instagram @marionvagg if you don’t already.

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello and welcome to a Jane’s Doodles┬áblog 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


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.

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!

Sending Kitty Cat Love – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hey friends. I am back today sharing with you another Jane’s Doodles card. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I thought I would do a slightly different take on ‘love’ card – for that someone special who loves cats! It is not secret that I love cats.

I used the Cats stamp set along with the Doodle Butterfly and Pucker Up! stamp sets for the sentiment and the hearts.

Now to make this card extra special, I added a mini action wobble behind the cat to keep things fun!

A Time For Love – Penny Black ‘Share the Love’ Inspiration #3

Hello! My school holidays are quickly coming to an end and next week school starts again. But no complaints here as I have had fun crafting, enjoying no routine and just relaxing!

Today I am sharing another instalment for Penny Black using products from their latest ‘Share the Love’ release. You can check out all the new products here.

I adore these two love bears, which are from the Take Me Away stamp set. I stamped them onto some Bristol card stock and used Zig Clean Color real brush markers to water colour them. The sentiment is from the Love Language stamp set.

I painted in a simple sky in the background to complete the scene. I added in some white gel pen detail to the balloons before adhering it to a blue notecard.
