Shades of Blue and Twofer Dog Cards

 I'm popping to share some cards I made on the weekend. I was slow to post some other cards and missed deadlines, so I'm making an effort to post as soon as I make them now!

First up is my entry for the last Twofer Card Challenge. Darnell has decided to make this final challenge, due to family health problems and changed priorities. I want to thank Darnell and her fabulous Team-mates for a fabulous 4 year of fun and inspiration.  Lots of hugs to you Darnell. 💕

I lots of fun playing with these Anita Jeram stamps from Colorado Crafts

I loosely water-coloured these images with, which were stamped on Bristol card. 
I don't think my dogs would wait!

I masked the presents from the dog stamp and used another stamp set for the second dog to create this scene. I coloured the images with Prismacolor pencils. I'm no expert at this, but did have fun trying:)

My next card was inspired by the colour challenge at Less is More - I love blue monochrome!

At first I was going to white emboss the image, but some of the flowers were too small and it didn't look as good, so this image was stamped with Zig Deep Blue and then coloured with 3 other shades of blue.

                    Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog! I love to read your comments:)


  1. Beautiful cards Jenny - I love your dog ones, but that flower - it's exquisite!! Never mind that I just happen to love blues :)
    Are you out of lockdown yet? We have just been put into a (snap) three day nationwide lockdown, with Auckland and Coromandel on 7 days. The nationwide one could be extended, dependent on what the tracing finds!
    Stay safe

    1. Thanks Maxine. We're in a VERY strict lockdown with curfew until 2 Sep at least. Too many mystery cases and bad behaviour from a few! You stay safe too x

  2. Beautiful tonal card and so very pretty x. Stay safe Jenny x.

  3. Before I forget, Jenny, I love your blue and white LIM design! It reminds me of some of my antique blue and white china. As for your TWofer entry, you know those adorable dogs make me grin from ear-to-ear. Their patience does seem a bit incredible, doesn't it?! Your coloring is great and I love all the texture on your Christmas design. Thank you for all your support and enthusiasm for TCC over the years and for your kind words. Huge hugs right back to you!
