Today I'm sharing my card using Winter Words and Winter Florals
This is one of my favourite techniques. It's so simple and quick. I have been asked how I do it so I plan to start doing little videos to share on Instagram.

Don't forget, JD's Black Friday sale starts at midnight (CET)!

Winter Words is a great sentiment set for the holidays.

gnome for Christmas

Today I'm sharing Marion's adorable card using Merry Gnomes. This is such a fun set. You can create a bunch of different scenes. By the way, there are only a few left.

winter village

Today I'm sharing Neha's STUNNING card using Winter Village and Driving Home For Christmas. Using watercolours is such a great medium to create your backgrounds because I feel it's so forgiving, doesn't have to be perfect.

Just a heads up, this Friday starts our Black Friday Sale. :)

with gratitude

Today I'm sharing Claudia's AMAZING card using Grateful. I have to be honest and say when I first looked at her card it took me a minute to figure out which stamp set she used. How creative!
I also mentioned before that I'm rubbish at heat embossing. I don't know why. Don't know if it's the embossing powder, the paper or it's just me. :)

Have a lovely weekend.

special guest


Hello Jane’s friends!  It’s Norine with you today for a guest post!  I recently received the new stamp sets Winter Flowers and Merry Gnomes and I have several projects to share with you!

I used the Winter Flowers set to stamp all of the individual stamps in the set, some twice, and some seven times! (the small leaf).  I stamped onto Bristol Smooth Cardstock and used waterbased brush tip pens in shades of blue to color the various images and a wet paint brush to blend the colors.  Then I hand cut the colored shapes, plus a few uncolored images, and created an arrangement for my card front.  I used Press n Seal to hold all of the individual pieces together then transferred them to the striped patterned paper card front.  The sentiment is from the Winter Words stamp set, and is stamped on coordinating blue cardstock and heat set with white embossing powder.

The Winter Flowers set is absolutely stunning and one I plan to use again soon, and I would have had more to share with you but my heart was stolen by the adorable Merry Gnomes stamp set!

I began by stamping all of the images in the set onto masking paper and cutting them out so that I could build a variety of scenes with the pieces.  The first card uses the two snowmen and the tree plus a pile of presents.  There are two gift stamps in the set and I stamped them repeatedly on cardstock and colored them before cutting them out and adhering them to the design.  That method seemed easier than masking and stamping all of the presents.  I inked the background then added snowflakes with tiny drops of liquid adhesive and white embossing powder.  The sentiment for this card is also from the Winter Words stamp set.

The next card is pretty simple.  I masked and stamped the two snowmen and the gnome so that the middle, taller snowman looks like he has his arms around his buddies.  I used Copic markers to color all of the stamped images today and when this trio was colored, I fussy cut the group as a unit and adhered it to a card front with a white cardstock snowdrift against a blue polka dot patterned paper sky!  I thought the dots made it look like it was snowing.  The sentiment for this card is in the Merry Gnomes set.

Then I made a couple of tags.  The Merry Gnomes includes the cutest little stool image so I perched the short gnome on top of the stool looking like he was decorating a tree, and adding a carrot nose to the snowman!  I know!  I can hardly stand how cute that is!!  I die cut each stamped and colored image and backed them with a second tag die cut from coordinating cardstock.  The Merry Gnomes set includes this sentiment as well.

Finally, I have one more Gnome card, and this one isn’t necessarily seasonal.  The two little gnomes have their hand positioned in such a way that stamped together, they look like they are high-fiving each other! I used masking paper to stamp them with their hands overlapping, colored the gnomes and added the “gnomebody” sentiment.  I didn’t have any stamps that say “high five!” so I measured and drew pencil lines, and wrote my own greeting with a liner pen, imitating the font of the stamp in the set.  I also penciled a frame around the focal image with a ruler, then drew wonky lines over top.

There you go!  That’s a lot!  I hope you got some ideas for fun ways to use these new sets from Jane’s Doodles!

'tis the season

Today I'm sharing a cute little Christmas gift tag using Winter Words, Pumpkin Patch and Hot Cocoa.
I usually struggle using pattern paper when making cards but not when making gift tags. Go figure. :)

I'm hoping to receive a shipment by the end of this week (for sure Monday) and I will be restocking some Christmas sets and adding a brand new one. Can't wait to share.

I was supposed to have a card for today but I lost track of time colouring in procreate. I used to draw on paper, then scan and upload and 'clean' up the lines in photoshop which took SO LONG (mostly because I have no clue of what I'm doing in photoshop). Drawing on my ipad is allowing me to draw and design stamp sets so much faster. I'm still getting use to it (I still prefer drawing on paper) but I'm getting there.

So like a said, I was colouring this little fella below. I'm not sure if I offered this image as a free digital stamp but here it is. A boy and girl version.

For personal use only please.

I'll be back tomorrow with a card and an update on the shop.

bear hugs

Today I'm sharing Milka's sweet card using Bear Hugs and Pumpkin Patch.

Milka shared this interesting fact about bears.

An amazing fact about Bears:
"Bears care deeply about family members. They will risk their lives and even fight to the death in order to save a cub or sibling from danger."

warm holiday wishes

First of all I'm so glad you all liked the free digi I posted yesterday. I really think I'm going to have to make a stamp set with this little penguin.

Today I'm sharing my card using Hot Cocoa and Driving Home For Christmas

I did lots of masking for this card, especially getting that little owl in the back seat. :)
