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,

Hello and welcome to another Jane’s Doodles blog hop where the Design Team and special guests are showcasing Jane’s latest stamp set – Sky’s the Limit. I am VERY excited about this stamp set. It is so darn stinkin’ cute and it might be a new fav! You should have arrived here from Bobbi’s blog.

My card today was really fun and relaxing to colour. I stamped and coloured the images with Copics and then fussy cut around them.

The background clouds use this MFT cloud stencil and I sponged on three colours of Distress Oxide Ink. The cloud dies are these ones from Penny Black.

Hello Sunshine – Jane’s Doodles

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

Happy Friday! I’m popping in quickly to share a Jane’s Doodles card of mine that was up on the JD blog recently. You can find the original post here.

I used the Spring Icons set to create this card. I stamped the images, coloured them with Copics and then fussy cut them out. I created some background scenes in each of the windows with some post-it notes for masking, a cloud stencil and some Distress Oxide inks before adhering all the elements on top, some with 3D mounting foam, and some straight onto the card.

I then adhered the front panel to a purple notecard.

I love creating these multiple mini-scene cards at the moment. I’m on a roll and have another one coming up next week!

Until then,

Cat Polaroid – Penny Black ‘Refreshing’ Inspiration #2

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

I’m back with my second instalment using the latest release from Penny Black called Refreshing.

I have not one, but two cards to share which are very similar – I just changed up the cat images, the colours and the sentiments.

Both of these cute cat images are from the Plant Joy stamp set. The sentiments are once again made from two different sets. The ‘You’ is from the Only You stamp set (from a previous release), and the ‘are the cat’s meow’ and ‘make life sweet’ portions are from the set called Trust Me Builder. I used the Polaroid creative die for both cards.

It doesn’t show so well in the first photo, but in the second photo you can see that I have used the Zigs and Zags stencil to add some subtle tone-on-tone detail to the base card.

In the second card I again used the Oscillations stencil.

Thanks for stopping by. To view and or purchase any of these new products from these releases, head to the Penny Black online store.

If you have any questions, just email me.

Until then,

You Are Appreciated – Penny Black ‘Refreshing’ Inspiration #1

Hello! Today I have the pleasure of sharing with you a card I have made using the latest release from Penny Black called Refreshing.

Today’s card features a sweet critter which comes from the Plant Joy stamp set. I stamped it onto some Neenah white card stock and coloured him in with Copic Markers. To add in some of the finer details and shading, I used Prismacolor pencils.

The sentiment is made from two different sets. The ‘You’ is from the Only You stamp set (from a previous release), and the ‘are appreciated’ portion is from a set from this release called Trust Me Builder.

For the dots in the background card base were made using the Oscillations stencil.

Thanks for stopping by. To view and or purchase any of these new products from these releases, head to the Penny Black online store.

If you have any questions, just email me. I’ll be back really soon with some more more cards,

Until then,

Congratulations – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

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.

I used the Special Delivery stamp set (stork and baby) and coloured them with Copics. The sentiment is from the All Occasions stamp set.

To create the cloud background, I used this Cloud Stencil from My Favorite Things and some Distress Oxide ink.

If you have any questions, just contact me and I’d be happy to help.

Thanks for stopping by,

Marion
