Jane's Birthday Party Blog Hop

Happy Friday!! :o)

Welcome to a special, Jane's Birthday Party Blog Hop. :o) 

Our Jane turned 46 today and is celebrating with this blog hop, two giveaways, one here and one on Instagram, as well with 46% off 24 hours sale. :o)

Happy birthday, Jane!!! 

Jane gave us, the Design Team, a simple "task" for today: to showcase our favorite Jane's Doodles stamp set. :o)

Although I love all Jane's Doodles stamp sets that I have, 122 of them, I didn't think too much which stamp set to use. I immediately knew I want to use 'Merry Gnomes' stamp set. The cutest Gnomes in stamping world. LOVEEEEE!!!! 

And here is what I prepared for today: Red and White Gnome Christmas Ornament. :o)

I made this one to decorate my Christmas tree. Red&white color combination is the combination I want this year. :o)

How I created my ornament...

I stamped a gnome on a watercolor paper and colored him in watercolor technique, using Distress Inks and colored pencils. After drying, I fussy cut the gnome, traced edges with a black marker and left him aside. 

I cut a circle from a beautiful patterned paper Jane sent me last month. I cut another circle from a white cardstock paper and glued two circles together just to make it a bit thicker.

Then I stamped the gnome on the circle and colored him with the black marker. I stamped another gnome on the white cardstock paper, fussy cut him out, traced edges with the black marker and glued the watercolored gnome over him. I did this to make the image thicker. 

I glued 3-D foam squares on the back of the gnome and glued him on the circle over the gnome colored with black marker, which adds extra shade.

I drew white highlights on the gnome's outfit with a white pigment ink pen.

Lastly, I placed circle in a clear acrylic fillable ornament ball, closed the ball, tied a white twine on the top and my ornament was finished. :o)

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

    2. Sweet little gnome, he's so cute against the snowflake background in this ornament!

    3. Milka, this is so fun! I love the bold and festive color combo, and the understamping makes a perfert drop shadow!!! I bet this will look adorable on your tree! It would be fun to make a whole Jane's Doodles tree with all her critters in Santa hats and the rest of her Christmas images! BTW, I thought I had a bunch of her sets... 47 and counting. If you are ever interested in selling the retired sets, I would love to pick some up! I'm so bummed I missed out on some sets... like Cheers and Winter Wishes... I wish I could remember the others I saw glimpses of and they sold out before I could order. She hasn't designed a set I haven't loved! Seriously, DM me at @misplacedmojo on IG if you are ready to part with them!
