CAS Plant Birthday Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)


Hi everyone! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this CAS Plant Birthday Card.



I made this card for a principal of the school I work at, who's birthday was this weekend.

I used stamps from two beautiful Jane's Doodles stamp sets: 'Plants' and 'CAKE!'. :o)


I stamped a plant image on a watercolor paper and colored the plant in watercolor technique using Distress Ink. After drying, I fussy cut the image leaving white thin border around it.

Then I stamped a sentiment on a white cardstock paper panel (I did some masking on the sentiment), glued the panel on a foam sheet square and glued it on a top folded card base. I also glued another panel inside the card to make it sturdier.

I love dimension on my cards, so I glued foam on the image too and glued it above the sentiment. Lastly, I embellished the card with violet sequins. :o)

Card dimensions: 89 mm x 89 mm (3.5" x 3.5")

  • Jane's Doodles 'Plants' stamp set

Dreams Come True Card (LMMS Inspiration)


Hi everyone! :o)

It's Little Miss Muffet Stamps Inspiration Week and I made this CAS (clean and simple), Dreams Come True Card. :o)


For my card I used beautiful LMM's Forgotten Scraps 'Polka Dot Pals Kaari' digital stamp, image released to the store today.

I was inspired with a card I shared last week for a current LMM's challenge #171, You are Magical Card.

I printed the image on a watercolor paper and left it dry for a day. I colored the image in watercolor technique using Distress Inks.

After drying, I fussy cut the image and traced edges with a black fibre-tip pen. Then I printed another image on a white cardstock paper, colored the image with the black fibre-tip pen and glued the colored image over it. I did this to make the image thicker as the watercolor paper I used is very thin and wouldn't work with 3-D foams.

I heat embossed in white on a black cardstock paper stripe a sentiment form Jane's Doodles 'Magical' stamp set.

With all parts finished, I glued 3-D foams on the image and sentiment and placed them on a white top folded card base. I embellished the card with two red enamel dots. As a finishing touch, I drew highlights and dots with a white gel pen and my card was finished. :o)

Card dimensions: 89 mm x 121 mm (3 1/2" x 4 3/4")

  • LMM's Forgotten Scraps 'Polka Dot Pals Kaari' digital stamp
