for you

Hello!

Happy Friday! :)

It's Angeline's turn on the blog today and she's created this super SWEET tag using my TEArrific and Life is Good stamp sets. I love the pattern paper and how Angeline only coloured the filling making the macaroons the focal point.



Have a great weekend!

warm wishes + stretch your stamps


Hello!

Hope all is well!

I'm going to show how I stretched my stamps with a little masking. I used the bunny and chick from mSpring stamp set to create a Christmas card by adding the snowman's hat (from mWarm Wishes) stamp set and drawing a hat on the chick.




For the chick I took some washi tape (post-it's are great for this too...I usually use post-it but ran out of them) and cover the top of the chick's head where I want to draw the hat. Draw the hat with a pencil first than trace over it with a marker and erase the pencil.


Ink up the stamp, remove the washi tape and stamp.



I did the same with the rabbit. 



I too the snowman stamp from mWarm Wishes stamp set and masked off everything but the hat, after I inked the hat and took off the washi tape I rubbed off the ink where I wanted the ears to be with a baby wipe.

Don't worry if it doesn't look perfect...once you colour it those little mistakes won't show. Also you can fix any lines (if they didn't stamp clear) with a marker (I use Sakura Pigma Micron) and use a white gel pen to erase any tiny mistakes.



Again, same thing with the ears....





I embossed polka dots on the vellum to create the snow...I adhered the sides of the vellum at the back so the glue doesn't show through at the front.




I coloured my images with Graph'it markers and as you can see any tiny imperfections are gone once coloured in. 


Have a great day!

snow much fun

Hello!
Hope all is well!



On pinterest I noticed the talented Laura's card and immediately  wanted to recreate it using my  Warm Wishes stamp set (thanks Laura for the inspiration).

So for this card I cut out my card base and then I trimmed down (so that it's a bit smaller than my base) white cardstock and used my circle die to cut out my window. I cut blue cardstock to fit under this 'window'.  I haven't used my SRM stickers in a while so I found this cute sentiment.


I cut two strips of velum to use as snow.


Adhere the velum and trim off the sides that are sticking out. Then adhere the window. onto the blue cardstock.


Adhere the 'window' to the card base, add the sentiment and snowman (which I coloured with my Graph'it markers).


Now while this is cute I thought the snowman would be happier with company so I added the bird and the present (which is from mMr. and Mrs. Claus stamp set).






I had this stamped image already coloured from a couple of days ago and decided to use my scraps from the card above to create a mini tall card...if you will! ;)
I used mWarm Wishes and Mr. and Mrs. Clause stamp sets.




Have a great day!

Jane's Doodles in German?!


Hello!
I hope all is well!

Well...I've mentioned here and there that I was working on a new project...something to do with Germany...I was approached by a German company called Efco about me drawing for them (they like my 'hand drawn' designs and as you can see took some of my existing designs and also commissioned new designs (which will be coming soon). I'm giving away these stamps over on my blog...pop on over there to find out more. :)



For my card I used this little set below (2x3 inch set and they sell for $3.75)

These sets are perfect...well first of all if you're German! :) and they are also great for mini cards and tags. 




I used my water colours to create a quick and easy card.















Have a great day!

read all about it

Hello!

How are things? I hope all is well!

I just love my design team...they just wow me with their creativity! Check out this A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E Mariana created using my Read All About It stamp set.
Mariana is AWESOME with colours and her colour combos always inspire me and I don't know about you but I could never get my string to look that good! And how in the world did she manage to paper piece the book...how did she cut that?? :)


Hope you all have a lovely day!
