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.

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 next time,

Jane’s Doodles – LOTS of cards!

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello friends. Today I have many Jane’s Doodles cards that I am sharing with you. They have been over on the Jane’s Doodles blog, but I have neglected to share them here – so strap yourself in, as there are a few cards.

The first card is my latest card that went up on the Jane’s Doodles blog today. The link to that post is here. This card was very much inspired by this card from Michelle from The Card Grotto. I love Michelle’s clean and simple style, and this card caught my eye a while ago. Thanks for all your inspiration Michelle! I’m a big fan!

I white heat embossed the butterflies from the Doodle Butterflies stamp set and some hearts from the Unicorn set before ink blending over the top. The Sending Hugs portion of the sentiment is from the All Occasions stamp set.

The next card uses the new Jane’s Doodle Poppy stamp set. I stamped and coloured the images with Copic markers and added shading with Prismacolor pencils. The sentiment is from the Girlfriend set. The link to that post is here.

The next card uses Doodle Butterflies again. I stamped and coloured the images with Copic markers and created a Distress ink wash for the background. The sentiment is from the Girlfriend set. The link to that post is here.

I had fun pulling out the Dogs stamp set to create this little scene. Again coloured with Copics. The background is Distress Oxide ink blending. The link to that post is here.

Moving along…This card uses the Happy Camper set. I love creating little scenes. The link to that card is here.

It’s no surprise that I love to create tags, and this is no exception. The link to this card is here. I used texture paste and a stencil to create the background. It created a perfect backdrop for the flowers from the Plumeria stamp set. The sentiment is from the All Occasions set.

This next card makes me happy! I love how it turned out. You can find the original link here. I used a mask to create the background. The stamp sets used are Rain or Shine and Life is Good.

Almost there….the next card uses a Christmas set called Driving Home for Christmas, but I thought I would use it for a different occasion. It also uses the Patterns and Cake! stamp sets. The original link is here.

And finally, I have a Thankful card using the Plumeria stamp set. The sentiment is from the Thankful set. The original post can be found here.

Phew. If you are still with me…congratulations! I didn’t realise I hadn’t posted so many of my Jane’s Doodles cards here to my blog.

If you want to know anything about any of these cards, just contact me through the email icon on my blog.

Thanks for stopping by. Until next time,

Penny Black – More Happy Heart Day Inspiration

Hello friends! I am back today with some more inspiration using products from the latest Penny Black release called Happy Heart Day. There is still time to win some Penny Black prizes in the blog hop from last week, which you can check out here.

For today’s inspiration, I have used the adorable All My Love stamp set.

The sentiments are from the Kisses and Wishes stamp set.

For my first card, I stamped the dog and balloon image onto some white card stock, then coloured them with Copic Markers. I fussy cut the images, but I cut off the top portion of the balloons, as it was going to be a little too tall for my card design. I die cut a circle and trimmed off the bottom portion.  I created a background scene with a hand-made mask and some inks. I popped up the balloons and dog on some mounting foam and hand drew in the balloon strings.

The sentiment is white heat embossed.

My second project uses the same two sets, but this time I created a wine bottle tag. I made my own tag using a paper trimmer, score board and a smaller circle die. Who wouldn’t want to receive a special bottle of wine for Valentine’s Day – perfect for my husband. This image was stamped and also coloured with Copic markers.

All of these products are now available in the online store and you can view the Happy Heart Day catalog here.

Three Butterflies Tag – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello! I am officially on school holidays! It has been a mammoth school term (12 weeks for us teachers) and I am in need of a really long sleep…. I’m back with some Janes’s Doodles tags that I made last week and haven’t had a chance to post here until now. You can find the original on the Jane’s Doodles blog here.

The butterflies are from the Doodle Flowers stamp set and the sentiments are from the Dots and Strips stamp set. Nothing too complicated – simple Copic colouring, fussy cutting and then I stamped the image in black on the tag (to get the antennae) and then adhered the wings over the top. I added some shimmer to the wings as well.

Supplies

Stamps: Jane’s Doodles Doodle Flowers and Dot and Stripes stamp set

Card: X-Press It blending card, Hero Arts woodgrain card stock

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, VersaFine Onyx black ink

Thanks for stopping by today.
