Jane's Doodles Release Blog Hop - Guest Designer

I was very excited and honoured to be asked by Jane to be a guest designer for her release of the super cute stamp set Winter Wishes.  This is definitely going to get a lot of use for my Christmas cards this year.

You may have come from Carisa's blog if your following the blog hop, but if not the full hop list is at the bottom of my post....... There are two stamp set to be won, so hop along ;)

For my first card I used the cute penguin, stamping it twice, one normally and for the second one I stamped a mirror image of it by stamping it onto a block stamp and then pressing that stamp onto paper (I'm sure there is a better way to explain this lol) The outline was not as sharp as the normally stamped one, so I used a Memento marker to outline it and it looked great.  I coloured the penguins in with Copics, before fussy cutting them.

I made a background with some embossing paste and stencil before watercoloring a pale background.   I added the penguins, a heart and a sentiment heat embossed onto black cardstock.  I die cut some panels before adhering them to a red card base.

I tried to make it look like they were holding hands... awww :)

For my second card I used the santa hat image along with two of the snowflakes to make a background.  I coloured the hats with Copics and added some Glitter Snow to the hat but it might be a bit hard to see in the picture.  In real life it really adds something to the card. I wanted to leave the card fairly plain to make the background stand out so I only added a sentiment onto a flag piece of card to finish it off, before adding it to a black card base.
Happy Holidays JD

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy the blog hop!

Card 2:


Hi, thanks for stopping by.  Our new challenge is all about paper piecing.  My card probably isn't the best example as I have only added a small amount on my card, so make sure you pop over to the Little Tangles blog and check out the fab creations by the other design team members.

I used the Hello Sunshine set on my card, isn't the little girl just the cutest?! Once I had stamped the image I masked it off and stamped the Punchinella background stamp over the top in Delicata Golden Glitz ink.  It looks so pretty in real life.

I stamped the image again on some patterned paper and then cut out the dress, bow and socks and added them to the image.  I added the panel to a black card base and added some strips of paper to the edges to add some more colour.  I partially stamped the Hello Sunshine sentiment on black card stock before heat embossing it in white and adding it to the card.

Well that's it for me, I hope you can join in this fun challenge.  Don't forget there is a stamp set of your choice from Neat and Tangled to be won!
