Birthday Snail Card - Croatian Sentiment (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)


Hi everyone!!! :o)

I'm back from my short vacation. It was AWESOME and I enjoyed a lot. :o) I will share some photos here on my blog in couple days. :o)

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


To make this card I used stamps from two new Jane's Doodles stamp sets: a snail from 'Chameleon' and a speech bubble sentiment from 'Croatian Sentiments'Sretan rođendan means Happy Birthday. :o)


How I made my card...

I stamped the snail and the sentiment directly on a top folded Kraft paper card base.

I colored the snail and ground with various colored pencils. To add extra shades to the image, I used Stabilo Pens (Markers).

Then I colored the speech bubble sentiment and snail's eyes with a white pigment ink pen. I managed to mess couple black lines with the white pigment ink, but I fixed them with a black fine liner.

Lastly, I coated snail's house with a transparent varnish to create glossy accents and left it dry on air through the night.

I love how my card turned out. :o)

Going on a short vacation

Hi everyone!!

I hope you're all well and enjoying summer days. :o)

Here in Ivanic-Grad is so hot, so I decided yesterday to go on a short journey to the seaside. I'll be visiting Bilice near Šibenik and Zadar. I'm leaving at 2 PM today and will stay there for a week. Can't wait!!! :o)

While I'm at the seaside, I won't have computer with me. I won't post here on blog, probably just some photos over on Instagram from my cellphone.

I wish you all wonderful week. Enjoy and smile!!!

Hello Summer Card II (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)


Happy Friday! :o)

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


To make this card I used stamps from two Jane's Doodles stamp sets: a sundae image from 'Cool' and a sentiment from 'Summer Icons'.


How I made my card...

I stamped the sundae on a watercolor paper and colored it in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the image and traced edges with a black marker.

Then I stamped the sentiment on a white cardsotck paper panel. I stamped another image on the panel, colored it with a grey marker and glued the watercolored image over it.

Lastly, I glued a rainbow patterned paper stripe on a white top folded card base, glued the panel on the card base and my card was finished. :o)


Card measurements: 95 mm x 127 m(3 3/4" x 5")
