Jane's Doodles Spotlight Blog Hop


Hello everyone!! :o)

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




Aren't they GORGEOUS!! Love them all! :o)


For today I prepared two cards featuring three new sets. :o)

My first card for today is this You're an Angel Card using stamps from super adorable 'Angels' stamp set. :o)


I inked a white cardstock paper panel with Distress Ink Blueprint Sketch. I inked it directly with ink cube and left it dry for couple hours. After drying, I trimmed the panel a bit, just to make it smaller than a card base. I heat embossed in white a sentiment and drew white dots and stars with white pigment ink on the panel and glued it on a white side folded card base.

Next up was an angel. I stamped the angel on a watercolor paper and colored her in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the angel and traced edges with a black marker. To make the image thicker, as I use think watercolor paper, I stamped another angel on the white cardstock paper, fussy cut the angel, traced edges with black marker and glued colored angel over it. I glued some foam on the back of the angel, glued the angel on card and my card was finished. :o)



Second card I created for today is this Thank You Card using 'Hibiscus' and 'All Occasions' stamp sets.


With some masking, I stamped gorgeous hibiscus flowers on a white watercolor paper. I stored masks to use them in my future projects. I colored gaps among flowers with black marker. Then I watercolored hibiscus flowers in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I glued the panel on a black top folded card base and drew white highlights on flowers with a white pigment ink. Lastly, I heat embossed in white on a black cardstock paper a sentiment 'Thank You', cut the stripe to a desirable size, added some foam on the sentiment stripe and glued it on the card.

I love how my card turned out and will definitely make more cards like this one using other Jane's gorgeous flowers. And there are so many... :o)



These would be my cards for today. At the bottom of this post you can find card measurements and detailed supply lists for my both cards. Link to this post will be in a right sidebar (Featured Post), until the Blog Hop ends. :o)

    Hoppy Birthday Card Set (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)


    Hi everyone! :o)

    On Wednesday, May 6th, was my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I shared this Hoppy Birthday Card Set:o)


    To make this card set, I used stamps from two AMAZING Jane's Doodles stamp sets'Garden Friends' (stamp set is discounted and is half priceand 'Geometric Patterns' (stamp set is discontinued from Jane's store). I also used two tiny circle stamps from another artist (see detailed supply list below).



    I colored frogs and bubbles during the 9th 30 Day Coloring Challenge (January 15th - February 15th 2018) by Kathy Racoosin of The Daily Marker. I shared progress of coloring on my Instagram account as well as in my preview post (here).

    I finished cards after the coloring challenge ended (mid February), but didn't share finished cards until now. I knew the time will come I won't have any free time to create anything and it would be good to keep project or two in "a drawer". :o)



    How I made my cards...

    My first idea was to make only one card, but my first attempt didn't go well. :o)

    I stamped a frog on a Kraft cardstock paper panel and colored it with colored pencils and white gel pen. I shaded the frog with Stabilo Fine Liners.


    Next day I continued with stamping and coloring, but somehow managed to smear the frog and ruin everything. I started all over. Just in case, I stamped and colored the frog on three Kraft panels. :o)


    Next up were bubbles. I love bubbles!!! :o) I stamped various size circles all over the panel, colored circles, added white highlights and traced the circles.


    First panel survived. :o) I continued with other two. I stamped a sentiment 'Hoppy Birthday' in the center of each panel, stamped various sized circles here and there, colored circles, added some shades with fine liners, added white highlights and traced bubbles. :o)

    I left my colored panels aside for a while. I focused on coloring during the challenge, not on finishing cards/projects. I still have some colored images from the challenge that are waiting to be placed on some project. :o)

    After Kathy's challenge ended, I finished my cards.

    I trimmed panels to a desirable size, glued them on white top folded card bases, fixed some white lines with white gel pen and my (not planed) card set was finished. :o)


    Card dimensions: 89 mm x 120 mm (3.5" x 4.75")

    List of supplies:
    • Jane's Doodles 'Garden Friends' stamp set (frog and sentiment)
    • Jane's Doodles 'Geometric Patterns' stamp set (large circle; set is discontinued from Jane's Doodles store)

    "Frogs are symbols of prosperity, wealth, friendship, and abundance in many cultures. In other cultures they symbolize fertility. In the Native American culture of the Southwestern United States, the frog carries a piece of wood in its mouth because the Mojave people believe frogs brought fire to humans. For the ancient Romans, the frog was believed to bring good luck to one's home. Native Aborigines of Australia believe that frogs brought the thunder and rain. Frogs are said to be effective in speeding up recovery from disease. Among the ancient Egyptians and Greeks, frogs symbolized inspiration and fertility. In ancient Egypt, Hekt, the frog goddess, protected newborn babies, hence frogs were symbols of fertility and birth. The frog is also said to attract true friends and to help find long-lasting love."

    Constellation Card

    Hello everyone! :o)

    Today I want to share with you this Constellation Card.


    I made this card using a gorgeous Hero Arts 'Reverse Constellation' background woodblock stamp and a sentiment from super adorable Jane's Doodles 'Belated Birthday' stamp set.

    I inked the constellation stamp with VersaMark Watermark Ink, wiped it with my palm, inked the stamp with Distress Ink Peacock Feathers and pressed a white cardstock paper panel on the stamp. I removed the panel from the stamp and left it dry on air.

    After drying, I glued some foam on the panel and glued it on a white top folded card base. I glued a white panel inside the card to make it thicker.

    Then I heat embossed in white the sentiment on a black cardstock paper, cut a banner, tied embrodiery thread around the banner, glued some foam tape on the banner and placed it on the card.

    As a finishing touch, I embellished the card with clear droplets and sequins.


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