I Love You SNOW Much – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello! I’ve made a cute Christmas shaker card using Jane’s Doodles stamps. You can view the post here on the Jane’s Doodles blog.

I don’t often make shaker cards, but I had an idea to make a snow dome card and I managed to do this with some partial die cutting. I partially die cut a circle and then cut the flat bottom section of the dome using a craft knife and ruler. I need to remember to do partial die cutting more often.

To keep this shaker card simple, I coloured, cut and adhered the trees and reindeer from the Winter Fun stamp set on top of the acetate window, rather than behind. I blended in some ink to create a snowy backdrop behind the acetate. I filled the window with some tiny star sequins. I love how it turned out.

A Snowman and some Succulents – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

I have a couple of Jane’s Doodles projects to share with you which I have made over the last couple of weeks.

First up is a cute little snowman shaker ornament inspired by Jennifer McGuire and also our recent trip to the snow. It uses the Winter Wishes stamp set.

Australia isn’t very well known for its skiing slopes, but we do have some and last weekend we took our kids so that they could have their first ever snow experience. We had SNOW much fun throwing snowballs, making a snowman and tobogganing (there was still plenty of snow left even though it is spring!)

Next up, I have another card to share using the new Cactus stamp set (which you can pre-order). I used Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol to colour in the focal pot. I’m entering this card into the Virginia’s View Challenge #24.

I recently made this underwater shaker card for the Jane’s Doodle blog using the new Under the Sea stamp set. Lots of fun to make.

Hello Friend JD | Marion Vagg

Some of the underwater elements are adhered on top of the acetate and some are underneath the acetate, so that the sequins can move around in between.Hello Friend JD | Marion Vagg
