sale




Hello!

THEY ARE FINALLY HERE!

If you follow me on Instagram (you should because it's where I share the most), you'll know how frustrated I have been. It's been a very slow start to 2021. Brexit's caused some delay and I waited for almost 3 weeks to get my stamps. But they are here, more is to come and hopefully it will be back to normal now that all the 'Brexit paperwork' has been dealt with.

I decided to jump straight into a sale and to add a limited amount of the newest release (below). By all the messages I've received I think I didn't order enough so I will be ordering more next week.

30% off, no code needed. The sale goes through to Sunday.
Also, I have some sets that are overstocked and need to make some room so they have been marked down to 40% off.


I'd like to now introduce the newest additions to the JD family.

Road Trip






How stinking adorable are they???






I already shared this card using Hope (sentiment if from All Occasions).

 Important - there will be another post later today with info about the sale. The sale will start 4:00 pm my time (Zagreb CET).






Today I have a guest! 


She sure created some magic using my Magical set!
I mean the colouring is bananas!! 
 I love how she used yellows and greys only (some golden brown for the hair).

This set (along with some others) is 40% due to the fact I overstocked.





I also love how Tina overlapped the sentiment a little onto the little girl's dress. A great idea is space is tight.


Thanks Tina! xo

you're awesome

Important: The shop is still under maintenance, hopefully will sort it out today. Also, good news! My stamps are on their way!!

Hello!

Today I'm sharing Bobbi's gorgeous card using Thankful and Cactus.



Bobbi is thinking outside the box and used the Thankful set, which is an autumn set and created a spring themed card using soft pastel colours.

The leaves are embossed in gold and added to a stenciled background of pastels and gold splatters. The sentiment is from Cactus.

florals

Note: the store is unavailable due to maintenance, should be up and running soon.

Hello!

Today I'm sharing Claudia's gorgeous projects using Peony and Winter Florals.

I love the look of leaving some of the leaves or flowers uncolored. I gotta try that.






Claudia's stretching the Winter Florals stamp set and using it to create a gorgeous SPRING vibe tag with these gorgeous springy colours.



Isn't this an adorable little treat. Surprising someone with a nice cup of tea. It's not expensive to do, just takes some time and love. I think I'm going to do this for the ladies at the post office for putting up with me. LOL

dahlia


Hello!

It feels like a Friday and it's only Wednesday! LOL
Good news, a sweet customer reached out to me and offered to help find out why such a long delay for my stamps to be delivered and long story short they had the wrong phone number and no email address so they couldn't get a hold of me??!! What?!! 2 WEEKS!!
Anyways, they did get a hold of me so hopefully soon I will get my stamps.

Today I'm sharing Katerina's gorgeous card using Dahlia.



I'm going to have to order myself some pencil crayons and try colouring with them. I feel it would be much easier to do a no-line colouring with pencil crayons than with markers.

ildi



Hello! 

I have another special blog post for you today. 
Ildi is popping in to share her brilliant projects using Belated Birthday. You can check her blog out here.
Thank you Ildi for being my guest, I am blown away by your gorgeous cards.



For my first card I used a black cardstock: I stamped the images with Tattered Rose Oxide ink and coloured everything with Polychromos pencils.
Quick tip: There's no need any masking papers if you choose no-line coloring since the light shaded ink will totally be covered by your colouring medium.








My second card wasn't a quick make, but it was absolutely worth the effort. I made a tone-on-tone backround using all the tiny bits from the stamp set. Coloured up this cute turtle, added a party hat and attached it in the middle. I white heat embossed the sentiment onto a piece of kraft cardstock and added some natural colour fringe to embelish my front panel.
Quick tip: If you find your backround too bold or dark for your focal element, you can cover it with a piece of vellum to mute the colours.







The third card I've created for this blog is a classic style marker card. I've just had this idea with snails on tree branches in my head since I first saw this gorgeous set. Creating a scene like this may take some time but always a fun create. I started with sketching the branches with my lightest grey then stamped the images.
Quick tip: marker cards sometimes look weird or messy while in progress. Please do not give it up if you find it doesn't turn out as you planned. At the end it will look great I promise :)





My final project is a monochromatic tag set and I can't hide how I enjoyed creating them. Making the tag bases I applied oxide inks onto die-cut pieces. I splattered black and white paint to make them look a little textured and interesting. I created little compositions from the stamp images with masking technique. I used the tag colours for my critters to create a monochromatic look.
Quick tip: when lack of mojo monochromatic colouring can be a releasing and uplifting experience. No thinking of colour picks can help to aim a flow create :).

Thank you for reading my post, hope you enjoyed it and found it useful. Thank you, Jane for the opportunity to share my creations on your blog, I feel so honoured!

Wishing you fun creating!
Hugs,
Ildi

new digital stamp




Well, people. Brexit is causing delays. The latest is that both orders are in Croatia but are now being processed for clearance (whatever that means). 

So with Easter coming, I decided to add a new digital stamp for Easter to the shop.




I drew 3 different versions (just tiny differences) and couldn't make up my mind which one to add to the shop so I added all three.

As usual, I used watercolours to create my background. I printed, coloured, and cut out my image and adhered it to the card. The sentiment is from Spring.




The card above has some more details (lines) for the hair, beard and the bottom card doesn't. I told you, tiny differences. LOL.





I'm also sharing Marion's adorable gift tag using Suzi's Easter which has been discontinued but it's available as a digital stamp. Marion also used Spring.

tropical birds


Hello!

Today I'm sharing Kaja's card using Tropical Birds.
I can't stop looking at the bird!!! Kaja's colouring skillzzzz are on point!
It's not easy colouring with black markers, at least not for me.



If you do digital stamps as well, make sure to pop by tomorrow for a little digi release. My orders (stamps) are still being held for clearance (whatever that means) due to Brexit, so I figured I could at least offer a digital stamp.

Hello!

Today I'm sharing Claudia's awesome card using Sweater Weather, Pumpkin Patch and Outdoors!
Mix and match those sets people!



I love how Claudia stamped and fussy cut the penguin's hat for the fox too.
I imagine these three best friends are enjoying themselves in the Italian Alps. 😀 
Claudia's colouring is FAB!
