Jane's Doodles Warm Hugs Release Blog Hop


Happy Friday! :o)

Welcome to a Jane's Doodles Warm Hugs Release Blog HopToday we are featuring a BEAUTIFUL 'Warm Hugs' stamp set released into the store. :o) We also have 5 amazing super talented Guest Designers joining us today. :o)

Beautiful!!! Love love LOVE!!!!! :o)

And here is what I prepared for today: Thankful For You Card. :o)

How I made this Card... 

For my card I used most stamps from the set. I love to create my own backgrounds. It's a great way to use as much as possible stamps from one set. I call that good use of the set. :o)

First I arranged tinny stamps on an acrylic block and randomly stamped tiny images from the set on a Kraft paper panel in watermark stamping technique using VersaMark Watermark Ink. I filled gaps by stamping one by one image in gaps. After drying, I stamped the sentiment in black on the panel.

I cut and folded a card base, slightly larger than the panel. I also cut 3 more panels from the Kraft paper. I glued (stacked) two panels together. I did this to add some dimension on my card, as I don't have any foam sheet in my stash and to glue 3-D foam squares on the entire panel was not an option. I glued the stamped panel on stacked panels and glued them on the card base. Last, 3rd panel, I glued inside the card to make it sturdier.

Then stamped a bear and leaves on a thick watercolor paper and colored images in watercolor technique with Caran D'Ache Prismalo Aquarelle colored pencils. After drying, I fussy cut images leaving white thin border around them. I glued 3-D foam squares (2 different thickness) on the back of each image and glued them on the card and my card was finished. :o)

I love how my card turned out!! :o)

    Smile Card (CASology Week #395 mid-inspiration)


    Hi everyone! :o)

    I hope you're all well. It's been a while since I've posted here on my blog.

    Today I'm sharing my card for CASology mid-inspiration challenge. This is also my last project as DT member for CASology. I've decided to step down from the team, as I don't find time to fulfill my duties as DT member, neither to craft as much as I did previous years. I endlessly enjoy being a mommy to my baby boy Fran and I don't want to build up any stress in my life by having commitments that I can't fulfill. Thank you Melissa and DT Ladies!! It was a wonderful experience and a great fun. You've all inspired me a lot. ♥

    On September 7th, 2021, a new challenge started at CASologyThis month's cue word is One. :o)

    There's still time to join the challenge, which ends on Monday, October 4th, 2021, 9 AM, CDT (UTC -5).

    And here is my take on the challenge: CAS (clean and simple), Smile Card. :o)

    Design defined: 
    One layer, one image, one word in a sentiment.

    For my card I used stamps from BEAUTIFUL Jane's Doodles 'Old Is Gold' stamp set.

    How I made my card...

    I stamped a camera image and a sentiment directly on a white top folded card base.

    Then I watercolored the camera with Distress Inks. I had to be very quick while coloring, as the paper I used is a cardstock paper and not watercolor paper. If I add too much color, there is no way to 'pick it' or blend it like it works on a watercolor paper. :o) I colored one part at a time, drying colored parts with heat it tool.

    As a finishing touch, I drew white highlights on the camera and my card was finished. :o)

    Card measurements: 89 mm x 121 mm (3 1/2" x 4 3/4")

    • Jane's Doodles 'Old Is Gold' stamp set
