I made two quite simple cards for this blog hop and even though they’re simple, I really love how they turned out! They look so fairytale-like and really fit the theme of the stamp set. ♥ They might look too simple, but I like to keep things simple ;)

Used products:

  • Graph’it marker 5115
  • You Do Creations Pigment Ink (pastel blue and pink – perfect for background images as clouds and stars)

Jane’s Doodles Release Blog Hop: Simon

Welcome to another Jane’s Doodles Blog Hop stamp release! I’m happy to show you a new stamp set made by Jane and even though summer still hasn’t arrived to Sweden (well, there are some hints of summer, but far from the real summer), I’m glad this set is all summer-y, as it should be at this time of the year!

This set is called Simon and you can get it HERE! ♥

I made two clean and simple cards for this blog hop. The first one is all about Simon as you can see, and the special thing about him is that he’s rocking the latest trend with glitter beards! :D ♥ I really love how Simon looks with glitter all over his face! :)
My second card is simple as well, and maybe I could’ve add something more to it, but I’m satisfied how it turned out (plus, I’ll have plenty of time to experiment with this set in the future!). This one is a simple ‘thank you’ card or something like that, perfect for any occasion, I would say. :)

DIY: stamps

 photo handmade_stamps00_zpss052yqjt.jpg

I’ve been using clear stamps for a while now and even though I love clear stamps, I really wanted to make some of my own stamps. Since my stamps are carved from linoleum, I knew they won’t be perfect or a masterpiece, but what counts is giving it a try!

So, how and why did I decide to carve some botany themed stamps? To make the long story short – I joined The Craft Lab community. Every month they host Creative Challenge and this month’s theme is – BOTANY! And, well, that was it! I had to get my materials since this was the perfect opportunity to make something I’ve been postponing for a long time. :)

Materials I used:

  • linoleum (you could use a eraser but I found linoleum to be much easier to work with since it’s softer and it has a larger surface which is perfect for larger stamps)
  • carving tools (you can get this at any hobby story but compare prices before you buy any set; I purchased my set, which contained 5 different knives, for only $5.50)
  • parchment (baking) paper + a pen and eraser (you’ll need it to transfer your drawing onto linoleum; easier than drawing directly on linoleum)
  • ink / paint for stamping (you can use any kind of paint, but I prefer ink since it’s easier to clean stamps after each use, especially if it’s something I’ll be using often and not for one use only)
  • a piece of wood / plastic / anything that you can use as a surface that holds your stamp while you stamp (as I sad, linoleum is softer and thinner and you can’t really hold it with your fingers)

Steps:

  • draw something on parchment paper (in my case it’s different shapes of leaves) and transfer your drawing onto linoleum by using your nails (gently scratch over your drawing; check if everything has transferred – hold your paper in place but lift that area where your drawing is)
  • use your carving tool to carve everything you don’t want to see while you stamp – this means everything around your drawing and some details as well, if you have them
  • cut your finished shape and you’re done!
  • stick it to something and you’re free to stamp! :)
