Jane’s Doodles is having a blog hop today where the Design Team are showcasing Jane’s latest stamp sets called Hydrangea and Home.

Also this will be Claudia’s first Jane’s Doodles blog hop, so make sure you leave her some extra love on her awesome blog. She is one talented lady and we are thrilled she has joined the Jane’s Doodles family.

Jane’s Doodles New Release Blog Hop and a Giveaway

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello and welcome to another Jane’s Doodles blog hop where the Design Team are showcasing Jane’s latest stamp sets called Spring Icons and Tulips. 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 two new stamp sets.

Spring Icons

Tulips

My first card is a very simple one, but I love the pastel colours and the Pop-Art feel to it. I used some cute images from the Spring Icons stamp set and stamped them onto some Bristol card stock before water-colouring around the images. The sentiment was white heat embossed onto some black card stock and then I fussy cut around that.

I popped up the four little panels with some foam tape and this card was done.

Next, I stamped a single tulip bloom and some leaves using the Tulips stamp set and coloured it with Copic markers. The sentiment is from the Spring Icons set and was stamped in VersaFine onyx black ink.

Jane’s Doodles New Release Blog Hop and a Giveaway

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello friends and welcome to another Jane’s Doodles blog hop where the Design team are showcasing Jane’s latest stamp sets! You should have arrived from Kaja’s blog.

Before I get to the blog hop, we are welcoming another very talented lady to the DT and that is Linda from Stampin with Liz Design. Please make sure you give her an extra special welcome on the hop and check out all of her AMAZING creations.

For this blog hop there are 4 new Christmas sets being released. If you get lost along the way, there is a list of blog hop contributors at the end of this post.

First up is a card that uses Winter Village. I stamped the buildings first and then coloured them with Copic markers. I then used a black fine line pen to join the snow banks together. For the night sky I used some watercolour paints first, then when that was dry I sponged on some distress inks to intensify the edges. I finally added some stars with a white gel pen. The sentiment is from the Winter Words set.

Next up is a card that uses the Snow Globe set. This set has so many cute images with so many possibilities. I kept this one pretty simple and just added in the penguin, present and snow flakes. You can’t tell in the photo, but it also has some subtle shimmer on the scarf and beanie.

Giveaway:
In addition to Jane having a 30% off sale on all clear stamps until this Thursday, 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! The winner will be announce on Friday.

Jane’s Doodles New Release Blog Hop and a Giveaway

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello and welcome to another Jane’s Doodles blog hop where the Design team are showcasing Jane’s latest stamp set called Cozy Up! You should have arrived from Kaja’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 is the Cozy Up! stamp set.

I’ve made two very different cards using this set. The first one has quite a retro feel to it. I masked off several areas using washi tape, and made sure that the stamps fit into the space I was creating for them. I then inked up each rectangle using a variety of Distress Oxide inks (I gave my daughter free range of the colour choices and where to put them – and I think she did a great job). All that was left to do, was stamp the images from the set with a new rich black ink – I used VersaFine Onyx black ink.

The second card is a little bit more traditional in style. I stamped and coloured the images in with Copics and used a MFT die to cut out the arched shape. This sentiment is from an older set (but one I reach for ALL the time) and is called All Occasions. I haven’t used patterned paper in so long, so it was fun to create a wallpaper feel for the background.

In addition to Jane having a 25% off sale on all clear stamps until this 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!

Timeless – Penny Black Release Blog Hop and Giveaway

It’s a “Party with Penny!”  You’re invited to join in the fun as Penny Black celebrates the release of their newest collection of stamps and dies, Timeless

You should have arrived here from Suzie Lessard’s blog.   If you want to start the hop from the beginning, you can go to the Penny Black blog for a complete list of all of the blog hop participants.  

Well to get this party started, I have two cards to share with you today. The first card uses this A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E Penny Black bear from the set called Balloon Ride. The sentiment is from the Butterfly Garden stamp set.

I coloured the images with Copic markers and fussy cut them out. For the background clouds, I hand cut a cloud mask from masking paper and sponged on the clouds with some blue ink. I then re-stamped the bear and balloon image on top of the clouds and adhered the fussy cut bear and balloons over the top.

My next card uses a mixture of two stamp and their coordinating dies – Butterfly Garden and Butterfly Garden Cut Out and Special Friends and Special Friends Cut Out. The sentiment is from the Flower Teddy stamp set.

The butterfly and banner were coloured with Copic markers and die cut using the coordinating dies. The foliage behind the butterfly was stamped in coloured ink, and I added some detail and shading with matching Prismacolor pencils. After a lot of image shuffling (and I mean a lot…), I decided on this layout and I love it. The sentiment was white heat embossed over the top.

And it wouldn’t be a party without a giveaway; right?  Penny Black is giving away a $50 shopping spree to the Penny Black online store to FIVE lucky winners.  To enter, leave a comment on any blog hop post (this one included).
