Jane’s Doodles Spotlight Blog Hop

Hi everyone!

I’m very excited and so honored to be part of Jane’s Doodles new release blog hop! You should have arrived here from Jane’s blog. If not, go back and start from there! Jane is giving away all 3 stamps sets from the new release to one lucky winner! To get the chance to win, leave a comment to each blog. Jane will announce the winner tomorrow!




Jane lives in Croatia and the delivery in Europe is SUPER FAST! Do you know that all images are hand drawn by her with pencil/pen and paper? They are so cute! I have always been a big fan of Jane’s stamps and the new release is awesome! 


Jane recently released 3 stamp sets. You can find them at Jane’s Doodles online storeHere are the new stamp sets: Mr. & Mrs. Claus, Warm Wishes and Hello Friend!




 Click on the images to enlarge!


To celebrate this new release, I did 2 cards.

For the first one, I used the cute fox from the Hello Friend set. I sponged the background with Distress inks and blending tools. I added some stars using a stencil and texture paste. To give more dimension to the fox, I stamped the image several times, also the snowman’s scarf from the Warm Wishes set. Instead of coloring everything in one image, I colored (with Copic markers) each part of the image that I wanted in a different layer. Then I fussy cutted my base image and all other layers. I fixed the scarf to the base image with glue and all other pieces with foam pads. To finish up the card, I added a sentiment from the Mr. & Mrs. Claus set and some Wink of Stella on the stars. [This card was also featured HERE].








For the second card, I used the FUN Santa (I love him so much!!!) from the Mr. & Mrs. Claus set. I created my own background paper using a stencil that I sponged with Distress inks. I colored Mr. Claus with Copic markers. The white heat embossed sentiment "Merry and Bright" is from the Warm Wishes set.






Your next stop is the Jane’s Doodles store blog. Enjoy the rest of the hop and don’t forget to leave a comment to each blog along the way to have a chance to win!
