Jane's Doodles Guest Designer

Hi Everyone! I'm totally excited to be a guest designer for Jane as she celebrates the release of her stamp set Jane's Bakery. I fell in love with these images when she first created them in digital format but am beyond thrilled that they are now available in clear stamps!

On my first card I repeated Jane's polka dot image to create a fun yellow background. I stamped the cupcake image, colored the wrapper with Distress Inks then placed it on the cake stand using a simple masking technique. I stamped the banner image and pieced it with coordinating papers and did some light shading with Copics.  

There are a few little extras things that are worth mentioning about this set. First, you can carefully bend the banner to make it fit the space you are working with. Second, the "happy birthday" sentiment that is included in this set is two separate stamps so you can line it up and arrange it however you'd like to work with your design.

The second card I made features the cake image. Again, I started by building a polka dot background then I layered the sentiment and the focal image on top. The cake was colored with Distress Inks and the frosting was paper pieced and covered in Glossy Accents. My color inspiration came from my idea of the perfect cake/cupcake store decor. :)

You can check out what the Jane's Doodles design team has created with the set here:

She also has a few other guest designers that you can check out here:

Jane's stamps (and awesome embellishments) are available on Esty HERE and in Australia HERE. Her stamps are made of high quality photopolymer rubber in the USA.


Thanks for letting me play Jane!!!

Amazing blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring
writers? I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm a little
lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a
free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
There are so many choices out there that I'm completely confused .. Any tips? Cheers!
