I love being part of blog hops and getting to work with all kinds of cool products. When Jane from janesdoodles asked me to be her guest for her new release, I couldn't wait to see what her newest stamp sets would look like as I love ALL of her designs! She hand draws all her stamps and I want to own every.single.one! (((and plan to do so someday!)))
Now, on to the blog hop post details! Today she is introducing two new sets including Ahoy! and Rain or Shine (both are available in the Janes Doodles store and she ships all over the world). I have a card to share using each of these sets. First is my card using Ahoy!:
For this card, I stamped several of the images on watercolor paper using Black Archival ink (waterproof). I painted all of the images in with watercolor paint. Then I cut them out. I using a couple of stitched rectangle die cuts under them. I layered all of the other cute little items around my pirates to create a scene. I stamped "Ye are a Treasure" on a banner and attached all to a yellow scalloped die cut. Last, I added a doodled border around the edges.
My second card uses the adorable Rain or Shine set:
I started by stamping all of the cute little designs on watercolor paper and then watercolored them all. I cut them out around the edges. I used a die cut for the framing of the items by Pretty Pink Posh. I added a watercolored background and then layered the items around the little openings. I stamped the sentiment in the top left opening. It didn't fit perfectly, so I cut the words apart to make them closer together and I ended up not stamping them straight - but the sentiment IS straight. Just my error! I tried adding a little line under it to hide that! Last I added a scalloped die-cut to the bottom and some twine.
Jane is giving away two stamp sets to one comment from this blog hop (two sets of winners choice). Next on the hop is the Janes Doodles Blog. I hope you enjoyed this day of fun creations by the talented janesdoodles design team. It was fun being the guest today Jane! Thanks for visiting!!! And have a wonderful Thanksgiving all! suzy
