Thankful for You – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Good evening. I’m back with another Jane’s Doodles card, this time using the new Tulips stamp set. I stamped the floral arrangement in VersaFine Onyx black ink onto some Strathmore Bristol smooth card stock. I then used my Zig Clean Colour brush markers and did some water colouring. I tend to scribble the marker onto an acrylic block, then pick up the paint with a water brush. I found this one really relaxing to paint.

The sentiment is from an older set called Thankful and I white heat embossed that once my watercolour panel was completely dry.

I really love how this turned out. If you have any questions about my cards, just email me.

I hope you have been getting some crafty time in. I certainly have – I even crafted with some friends via Zoom today! It was so much fun!

Until next time,

Thank you – Penny Black ‘Secret Garden’ Inspiration #1

Hi friends. I hope that things aren’t too chaotic in your neck of the woods! The good thing about our wonderful online community of card makers is that we can continue to make, share, enjoy and uphold each other online like we have always done!

Today I am sharing a card using Penny Black products from their latest ‘Secret Garden’ release – and what an awesome release it is as well.

I stamped the Penny Black Unforgettable cling stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto some Neenah Solar white card stock. I then went to town and coloured in this beauty using Copic markers – I was actually at the beach a few weeks ago colouring this one.

I wasn’t sure how to mount this onto my card base, so I trimmed around the image, fussing cutting around some of the outer leaves and flower buds. I then mounted this to a dark teal piece of card stock. Before adhereing to the base card, I lightly sponged on some dots using a blue ink and the Oscillations stencil. I reach for this stencil all the time when I want to add some subtle interest to the card base.

I finished off the card by adding a white heat embossed sentiment from the Million Thanks stamp set. I mounted the sentiment with some foam tape.

Thank you – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

I’m popping in quickly today to share a card I made using Jane’s Doodles  products. I masked off then stamped the new Wild Flowers stamp onto some Neenah solar white card stock and coloured it with Copic markers. I am having fun experimenting with adding little dots around my images of late – jut to give it some more visual interest.

I then added some thin card stock strips underneath the floral cluster, one of which I stamped the Thank you sentiment from the All Occasions stamp set. To complete the card I added in some white gel pen highlights with a Uniball Signo white gel pen.

Thanks for supporting me and my card making journey. You can always follow me on Instagram @marionvagg if you don’t already.

Thank You – Penny Black Dreaming Inspiration #2

Good evening! Today’s card features a new floral set from Penny Black’s Dreaming release called Flower Collection. The image is actually a bucket filled with flowers, but I decided to repeat stamp the flower portion for a totally different look.

The sentiment is from another new set called Beautiful Heart. The flowers are coloured with Copics and then I mounted the focal panel onto a blue note card. Simple, but eye-catching.

Rustic Birdhouse – Penny Black Full Bloom Inspiration #3

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is full-bloom.jpg

Hello. I hope your week is off to a great start. I’m back with another Penny Black card using products from their latest release.

Today I have used a fabulous new creative die set called Rustic Birdhouse. I love the woodgrain detail of the house. I die cut the bird house and then coloured it with Copic markers. I die cut the outer house frame three times and stacked them up for dimension.

I masked the edges of the card with some washi tape and I also created a cloud mask from some masking paper. I then sponged on some clouds (Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink) and greenery (Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink) to create a subtle background.

The sentiment is from a great new set called Special Sentiments and is stamped in VersaFine Onyx black ink.

To view and or purchase any of the new products from the Full Bloom release, head to the Penny Black online store and click on the ‘New’ link under the product heading on the left hand side.

Thanks for your company today. If you want to know about any of the products I have used, just contact me.

Penny Black – Timeless Inspiration #1

I hope you had some fun hopping along with the Penny Black Timeless Blog hop on Monday. There is still time to win some awesome prizes, so if you are still looking to hop along, start here.

Over the next week or so I will be posting some more cards using products from this latest Timeless release. I have had an absolute blast with this release, so buckle up, because this is Day 1 of more Timeless inspiration.

Today’s card is a really pretty and feminine one using the Harmony cling stamp. This card is quite simple, as these beautiful florals only needed to be coloured (and I used Copic markers again). The sentiment fitted in perfectly into the space, and it is from the Flower Teddy stamp set.

Clean, simple and elegant – just the way I like it. Head to the Penny Black online store where all the new products are now available for purchase.
