Jane's Doodles Release Blog Hop


Happy Monday! :o)

Welcome to a Jane's Doodles Release Blog HopToday we are featuring two BEAUTIFUL Love/Valentines themed stamp sets and a GORGEOUS stencil released into the store. :o) We also have 2 amazing Guest Designers joining us today. :o)

GORGEOUS!!! Love love LOVE!!!!! :o)


For today I prepared three cards. :o) 


On all my three cards I used the Hearts Stencil and a handmade heart mask. I made the mask from a post-it paper. I traced Jane's heart on the post-it paper and then drew large heart similar to Jane's "original" heart. I fussy cut it carefully, as I needed both masks, positive and negative. :o)


My first card for today is Sending Love CAS (clean and simple) Card.


How I made this card...

I glued the negative part of heart mask on a white cardstock paper panel and ink blended the background. Then I placed the hearts stencil over the masked part and ink blended hearts. I added some extra shades with colored pencils.

When I was satisfied with the color, I removed the stencil and the mask and drew light reflections, stars and dots with a white pigment ink pen. I love a sparkle effect that I achieved. :o)

I stamped a sentiment from Love You stamp set on the panel, glued the panel on a black top folded card base and my card was finished. :o)

Card measurements: 95 mm x 140 mm (3 3/4" x 5 1/2")


My second card for today is Love & Thanks Monochrome Card.


How I made this card...

I glued the hart mask on a white cardstock paper panel and ink blended the entire background. Then I placed the hearts stencil on the panel and ink blended hearts. I added some extra shades with colored pencils.

When I was satisfied with the color, I removed the stencil and the mask and drew light reflections, stars and dots with the white pigment ink pen and again created the sparkle effect. Love it!!! :o)

I stamped a sentiment from Love You stamp set on the panel creating Ombré Effect. A stamping platform really helped with that. :o)

On this card I wanted to create a bit of dimension. I didn't use foam. I cut two white panels, glued them together, glued hearts panel on top of the stacked panels and glued everything on a white top folded card base. Lastly, I glued one more panel inside the card to make it a bit sturdier. :o)

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


My last card for today is Love is in the Air Mini Square Card.


How I made this card...

I glued the negative part of heart mask on a white cardstock paper panel and ink blended the background. Then I placed the hearts stencil over the masked part and ink blended hearts. I added some extra shades with colored pencils.

When I was satisfied with the color, I removed the stencil and the mask and splattered the panel with water. I dabbed the surface with a paper towel and continued to splatter until I was satisfied with the appearance. I left the panel to dry on air.

I stamped an adorable bird from the Love Is In The Air stamp set on the white cardstock paper. I also made a mask on the post-it paper. I carefully fussy cut the bird and used the negative part of the mask for this card. I glued the mask over the bird and ink blended the bird. I removed the mask and added some extra shades with colored pencils. When I was satisfied, I fussy cur the bird, leaving thin white border around it and drew white highlights with the white gel pen.

I heat embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set as the bird in white on a black cardstock paper stripe. I trimmed the sentiment stripe to a desirable size.

Lastly, I cut out three more squares, same size as the panel and a white square top folded card base.

With all parts ready, my card was ready for assembling. I glued two squares together (stacked them) and glued ink blended panel on top of them. Then I glued everything on a white square top folded card base. I glued one more square inside the card to make it sturdier. I glued 3-D foam squares behind the sentiment stripe and the bird (two different foam dimensions), glued them on the card and my card was finished. :o)

Card measurements: 92 mm x 92 mm (3 5/8" x 3 5/8")


I had so much fun creating these cards and LOVE how they turned out. :o) My baby boy Fran also likes them a lot. He was screaming of joy when I showed them to him. LOL

    BLOG ISSUES - TEMPORARY BLOG POST (fixing issues)

    UPDATE: STILL WORKING ON SOLVING ISSUES

    Hi everyone!!

    I'm experiencing some issues with my blog and just realized some of the posts I've shared here in past couple months didn't go live as I scheduled them. They are shown as published, but when I open them in blogger they do not exist. I messed something with permalinks. I'm working on fixing all those blog posts.

    Here are direct blog posts and direct permalinks to all those posts here in this temporary blog post, just in case you want to see/read those posts.



    I will keep this post on top of my blog until I fix everything.

    After I fix everything, I will permanently delete this blog post. Comments on this blog post are disabled.


    Thank you for visiting. Big hugs!!!
