Hello! Welcome to another Jane’s Doodles blog hop where the Design Team are showcasing Jane’s latest stamp release – two new stamp sets. You should have arrived from Kaja’s awesome blog. If you get lost along the way, there is a list of blog hop contributors at the end of this post.

Today I have made two cards using the new Plumeria and Kind stamp sets. In Australia we call this gorgeous flower a frangipani. I have one growing in my garden. Frangipanis are still very much blooming in my neighbourhood. These flowers scream summer to me!

I stamped and coloured the images on both cards with Copic markers. I fussy cut them out and stamped the sentiment from the Kind set.

I did exactly the same thing for this card, however I lightly stamped the image onto the card base in a light grey ink. This one has a little bit more dimension as I popped up some of the flowers from the cluster with foam tape.

In addition to Jane having a 20% off sale on all clear stamps until 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!

Sending Hugs – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

It’s been a little quiet here on the blog as I’ve been enjoying the last of my summer holidays. But I’m back today with two Jane’s Doodles cards.

This first card features my favourite Jane’s Doodles floral set which is called Bloom. I stamped the images, coloured them with Copic markers and then fussy cut them out. I embossed the card base with a Penny Black stencil and tan embossing mat and mounted the flowers onto a MFT dome die cut. The sentiment is form the All Occasions stamp set.

Next up is a card that was on the Jane’s Doodles blog a couple of week’s ago. See the original post here. This card was inspired by a card made by Isha Gupta which you can find here. I loved her colour combo and the layout.

For this card I used the Free-As-a-Bird and Tropical Fun stamp sets.

Supplies

Card 1: Sending Hugs

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Bloom and All Occasions stamp sets

Card: XPress-It blending card stock, Beige card stock, Black card stock

Ink: Memento Tuxedo black ink, VersaFine Onyx Black ink

Other Supplies: Copic markers, 3D mounting foam, Nuvo Drops – Sea Breeze, Penny Black Oscillations stencil, MFT Stitched dome stax die, Cuttlebug, White embossing powder, Heat gun, Anti-Static powder bag, Spellbinders tan embossing mat

Thankful and Blessed – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hi! I’m back with a Jane’s Doodles card using the stamp sets Bloom and Hello Fall. It was up on the Jane’s Doodle blog last week – you can find the post here.

I masked and stamped the floral and leaf cluster – not something I usually do as I am lazy and I find cutting masks out a pain. But for some reason I decided this was the way to go. As I am a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants crafter, I had to add the red flower as an additional piece, so it ended up not being a one layer panel.

I love adding some subtle stencilling onto the card base to give it that something extra.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Bloom and Hello Fall stamp sets

Card: Neenah solar white card stock, Light Blue card stock

Ink: Memento Tuxedo black ink, VersaFine Onyx Black ink, Green ink

Other Supplies: Copic markers, 3D mounting foam, Nuvo Drops – Sea Breeze, Penny Black Oscillations stencil

So this card is a little thank you to all my blog readers for your support and encouragement in 2018. I am thankful and blessed to be part of such a warm and friendly community.

Until next time,

Marion

Deck the Halls – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hi! I’m back with another Jane’s Doodles card using a gorgeous stamp set called Deck the Halls. I am doing well – I think this is my second Christmas card I’ve made and it’s only October!

I pulled out a cheap set of watercolour paints for this one. Lots of layers and heat setting between layers. I thought I had ruined this on many occasions, but watercolours are very forgiving and somehow I kept adding and ended up with this! I sewed on some silver thread for something different.

Head on over to the Jane’s Doodles blog for more awesome inspiration.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Deck the Halls stamp set

Card: Neenah solar white card stock, Canson watercolour paper

Ink: Versamark ink, VersaFine Onyx Black ink

Other Supplies: Watercolour set, White embossing powder, Anti-static powder bag, Heat gun, 3D foam, Silver thread

Thanks for stopping by today.

Thinking of You Sunflowers

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hi! I’m back with a Jane’s Doodles card using a gorgeous stamp set called Sunflowers. Head on over to the Jane’s Doodles blog for more awesome inspiration.

I stamped and coloured the sunflower and leaves with Copic markers and fussy cut the images. I tend to do this instead of masking, as I like to shuffle all the images around (which I can do for ages) before deciding on a final layout. I am a visual person, so I have to see things in real life – not just picture them in my head).

The sentiment is from the All Occasions set. For the background, I decided to use some patterned paper – I have no idea where it is from as I very rarely used any, but I thought it went with the autumnal theme nicely. I coated the sunflower in a layer of clear Wink of Stella for some shine.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Sunflowers and All Occasions stamp sets

Card: Neenah solar white card stock

Ink: Memento Tuxedo black ink, VersFine Onyx Black ink

Other Supplies: Copic markers, MFT Stitched rectangle die, Cuttlebug, 3D mounting foam, Wink of Stella glitter brush pen

Thanks for stopping by today.

Jane’s Doodle New Release Blog Hop

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello and welcome to the Jane’s Doodles blog hop where the Design team are showcasing Jane’s latest stamp release – three new stamp sets that are simply adorable. 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 three new sets – and I think you are going to love them!

Happer Camper

Outdoors

Patterns

I have two cards to share with you today. The first up uses my favourite animal from the Outdoor set – the moose! He is simply adorable! The trees are from the Happy Camper stamp set.

I partially die cut a circle from white card stock to create the focal piece. This was inked up with Distress Oxide inks. All images were stamped, coloured with Copics then fussy cut. I mounted the focal panel with 3D mounting squares onto a white card base.

My next card uses elements from all three of the new sets. The Patterns stamp set was used to create the tone-on-tone background arrow pattern. Again all images were stamped, coloured with Copic markers and fussy cut. This card is quite a long card (23 cms) so I will be making a custom envelope for this one.

Giveaway:
In addition to Jane having a 20% off sale on all clear stamps until this Tuesday, 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 this Wednesday. Good luck!
