Jane's Doodles Release Blog Hop


Hi everyone! :o)

Welcome to a Jane's Doodles Release Blog HopToday we are featuring THREE new stamp sets released into the store. :o)


Aren't they ADORABLE!! Love love LOVE!!!!! :o)

I had so much fun playing with these sets, so I prepared four cards for today. :o)


My first card for today is this CAS (clean and simple), Friends Card using stamps from super adorable 'Outdoors' stamp set. :o)


With some masking, I stamped adorable critters from the set on a watercolor paper panel. I also stamped a sentiment from the set. I colored critters in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying I glued the panel on a white side folded card base and my card was finished. :o)



Second card I created for today is this CAS, Raccoon Card using 'Outdoors' and 'Patterns' stamp sets. This raccoon is so so cute!! :o)


I stamped the raccoon on the watercolor paper and colored him in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the raccoon and traced edges with a black marker. To make the image thicker, as I use thin watercolor paper, I stamped another raccoon on the white cardstock paper, fussy cut him, traced edges with black marker and glued the colored raccoon over him.

Next up was a sentiment speech bubble. I stamped a speech bubble from another stamp set I have on the white cardstock paper with VersaMark Watermark, fussy cut the bubble and stamped the sentiment on it.

Then I stamped stripes pattern in black directly on a white top folded card base.

With all parts ready, I assembled the card. I glued some foam on the back of the raccoon and speech bubble and glued them on the card base. As a finishing touch, I embellished the card with two grey enamel dots. :o)



My third card is this CAS, Wigwam Card made with stamps from beautiful 'Happy Camper' stamp set.


First I cut out all pieces I needed: card base, window, background panel.

I stamped Moon and stars on a watercolor paper panel. I wanted to create night sky scene. :o) I colored the scene in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I glued the panel directly on a white top folded card base.

Then I stamped a sentiment on a white cardstock paper panel with a cut window. I glued some foam on the panel and glued it on the card base.

I stamped a wigwam and couple more stars on a watercolor paper and watercolored them also with Distress Inks. I fussy cut the wigwam and stars and traced their edges with black marker.

I glued three stars on the night sky scene to add some dimension to the background.

Then I stamped another wigwam on the white cardstock paper, fussy cut it, traced edges with black marker and glued colored wigwam over it. I did this to make the image thicker, as the watercolor paper I use is very thin.

I added more foam on the back of the wigwam, glued it on the card and my card was finished. :o)



Fourth and last card for today is this New Adventures Card made using stamps from 'Happy Camper' stamp set.


On this card I decided to go with Aurora Borealis at the background, which I would LOVE to see in person. :o)

I colored a background in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. I used thick watercolor paper for it. When I was satisfied with the color, I blended edges with Black Soot Distress Ink to get more dramatic look. Then I splattered the panel with white tempera color mixed with water. I smeared a bit of the white tempera color here and there where I wanted to get lighter parts of the Aurora Borealis. After drying, I glued the panel on a black top folded card base and drew couple shiny stars with white pigment ink.

Next up was a tent. I stamped the tent on a watercolor paper and colored it in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut it and traced edges with a black marker. To make the image thicker (this paper is thinner than the paper I used for the background) I stamped another tent on the white cardstock paper, fussy cut it, traced edges with black marker and glued the colored tent over it.

Next up was a sentiment speech bubble. I stamped a speech bubble from another stamp set I have on the black cardstock paper with VersaMark Watermark, fussy cut the bubble and heat embossed in white the sentiment on it.

I glued some foam on the back of the tent and speech bubble, glued them on the card base and my card was finished. :o)



These would be my cards for today. I like them a lot, hope you will too. :o)

    Karate Yellow Belt Shaker Card

    Hello everyone! :o)

    Today I want to share with you this CAS (clean and simple), Karate Yellow Belt Shaker Card. I love creating CAS interactive cards!!! My two favorite card designs: CAS and interactive card... 2 in 1. :o)


    I made this card for my friend's son, Fran, who trains Karate. He earned an Yellow Karate Belt. Congratulations!!! 

    If you would like to find out more what the Karate Belt colors mean, check out this article.



    How I made this card...

    To make this card I used a super cute Mama Elephant 'Tiny Ninjas' stamp set. LOVE!!! :o)

    I used this stamp set to make cards for my niece Tea, who also trains Karate. She earned two belts: Yellow and Orange. If you like, you can find cards I made for her here and here... or cards labeled #karate. :o) I'm sure there will be more cards using the set, as my younger niece Nika also started her Karate education. I'm so proud of those kids!!! 

    I stamped an adorable ninja on a watercolor paper and watercolored him using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the ninja leaving white thin border around him.

    For a layout, I used a sketch from AAA Cards, CAS Game #123 - Sketch.


    I die-cut a circle in a white cardstock paper panel, glued an acetate sheet over the window and stamped a sentiment on the panel.

    Then I blended a Distress Ink Mustard Seed directly on a white top folded card base. I splattered blended surface with a water, dried it and repeated blending the Distress Ink. When I was satisfied with a color, I glued 1 mm thick foam sheet scraps on the panel.

    I really love how Jennifer's McGuire Shaker Stamped Cards and I had to give it a try on this card. Thank you for the inspiration and tips, Jennifer!! ♥

    I glued a clear thread on the ninja's back and glued thread on the foam inside the window. Then I glued another layer of 1 mm thick foam scraps on the panel. I hope this makes sense. I'm giving my best to explain the process... see Jennifer's video for all details... :o)

    I mixed various sequins and beads to get my own mix. I filled the window with shaker mix and glued the panel on the card base. To make the card sturdier, I glued a white cardstock paper panel inside the card and my card was finished. :o)

    God is in the details Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)


    Hi everyone! :o)

    Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this CAS (clean and simple), God is in the details Card:o)


    For my card I used stamps from two GORGEOUS Jane's Doodles stamp sets: Lily and Bless Your Heart.

     

    How I made this card...

    With some masking, I stamped lilies on a watercolor paper panel. I have pre-made masks that I store in pouch with stamps. I love masking technique and with pre-made masks I go more for it. I should make masks for more stamp sets...

    I fixed some lines with a black fine liner and stamped a sentiment.

    For coloring I decided to step out of my comfort zone and went with loosely watercolor technique. I love the result!! I should do this more often...

    After coloring, I left the panel to dry on air. After drying, I glued the panel on a same size white top folded card base and my card was finished. :o)
