Jane's Doodles Spotlight Blog Hop


Hello everyone!! :o)

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

Super cuteness overload!! :o) I had so much fun playing with these, so I created five cards for today. :o)

But prior I continue and show you my cards, I would like to welcome a new member to our design team, Linda from NetherlandsWelcome to the Team, Linda!!! I'm happy that you are joining us. :o)


And here are cards I've created for today. :o)


As you can see, I went crazy with brown/kraft/white color combination. :o) I love it!! It's definitely my favorite Christmas color combination so far. :o)

I colored all images in watercolor technique, using only one color: Distress Ink Ground Espresso. I love monochrome watercoloring. I find it great way to achieve Vintage kind of look, even with cute stamps. :o)

Except stamps from new stamp sets, I used snowflakes stamps from older Jane's Doodles stamp sets: Driving Home for Christmas and Winter Fun.


And now close up photos of my cards. :o)

    Snowflakes Card (bastel-traum challenge #83)

    And here is my take on the challenge: Snowflakes Card. :o)



    How I made my card....

    I went with die-cut inlay technique on my card. :o)

    To make my card I used a GORGEOUS Create a Smile Cool Cuts 'Negative Snowflake' die cut. I used only inner part of the die cut. I had some of these die-cut circles and snowflakes in my stash that I didn't need when I was making Christmas cards last year (or even two years ago). I die cut the rest of them from a Kraft cardstock and a white cardstock paper scraps . I used a piece of paper large enough to cover the inner part of the die cut.

    First I glued circles on a white cardstock paper panel. Then I glued snowflakes inside each circle (die-cut inlay). When I was finished, I glued the panel on a white side folded card base and glued another white panel inside the card to make it sturdier.

    Then I wrote a sentiment 'Fröhliche Weihnachten' on my computer using Impact Label Fontprinted it out on the white cardstock paper, cut it out, colored edges with a black marker and got a lovely label, as if I had label maker. :o)

    Fröhliche Weihnachten means Merry Christmas on German. :o)

    Lastly, I glued 3-D foam squares on the back of the label, glued it on the card and my card was finished. :o)


    Card measurements: 137 mm x 105 m(5 3/8" x 4 1/8")
