Delight Release cards- Penny Black

Hello! It’s been a while since I have posted some Penny Black goodness here on my blog, but I am delighted to rectify that today. I have made two very different cards using some products from the Delight release.

First up I have used the Triangles creative dies to create a simple geometric design. I die cut the larger triangles from scrap coloured card stock. Then to create a tone-on-tone effect, I coloured the smaller triangle frames with a matching Copic marker before adhering it to the larger triangle.

The sentiment is from a set called Bear-y Wishful – I did a little stamp surgery and just used the first part of the sentiment. This card would make a great masculine card and would be easy to reproduce.

Next up is a card using the Captivating stamp set. Such a beautiful floral set. I dug out the Zig Clean Color Watercolor pens and had a great time water-colouring. To add some extra shading and depth to the flowers, I used some Prismacolor pencils. The sentiment is from an older set called Butterfly Garden.

To view and or purchase any of these new products from this release, head to the Penny Black online store. If you have any questions, just email me.

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!

Jane’s Doodles New Release Hop and a Giveaway

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

Hello and welcome to another Jane’s Doodles hop where the Design Team and special guests are showcasing Jane’s latest stamp sets – Surf’s Up and Fresh Cut Flowers. I am once again VERY excited about these new additions as they are so cute…especially the Surf’s Up! So here they are in all their glory…

Surf’s Up

Fresh Cut Flowers

For this first card I masked off the sand area with some post-it notes and then stamped the images from Surf’s Up, so that they are buried in the sand. I then used a Copic multi-liner to draw over the sand edge before colouring in the whole image with Copic markers. I simply love this alligator.

To create the impression of sand, I used 3 different copic marker colours and dotted them on. To blur the bottom and side edges a bit, I went over it with a colourless marker.

My next card uses one of the gorgeous floral arrangements from the Fresh Cut Flowers set. I stamped it in the corner, then used a ruler and Copic multi-liner to draw a border around the image. I love colouring florals and making them look really bright and vibrant. The sentiment is from an older set called Anemone. To add some tone-on-tone detail to the base card, I sponged on some ink using this stencil.
