Lynne Jardine - Barking on the front porch

Here’s an adorable card from Lynne. Usually when the Porch with light stamp gets used, the edges are off the card. But here she’s “floated” it which I think looks great. Lynne said she stamped the images and colored them in with her watercolor pencils. She then popped Webster and the bottom step/plant up on dimensional to add a little interest. The sky she chalked in background (a hint of clouds) and then added clear gloss to the light. I just love all the little embellishments – her sketchy lines, the little arrow that seems to hold it all in place and then bit of bling. Oh so cute.

Lynne Jardine - Have a purrfect day

A purrfectly wonderful card from Lynne. I love the softness of this card – the sweet orange kitty and the patterned paper. She added some fun stars and finished things off with a bit of sparkle.

Here’s hoping you all have a purrrrfect day. :)

Lynne Jardine - Thanks - Mailbox bears

Here’s a sweet little Thanks card from Lynne. I just love the spot of red in the mailbox and that she added a few enamel dots. She said she colored everything in with watercolor pencils and added a bit of clear gloss to the little mailbox flag. The background was created with chalks – I just love the little hint of clouds and grass.

She did say that she tried to add a shadow to the “Thanks” but says, “I stamped it off a bit too much so it just looks like a smudge here. LOL.” I think it looks just fine. :)

Here’s another Christmas card from Lynne. I love the color combination!! Always fabulous Lynne!

She says:
Here’s a quickie using my favourite Eat Cake Graphics elf! My unusual colour theme was decided by this pretty DP – not colours I would traditionally put together for a Christmas card, but I like how it turned out! I coloured my elf with watercolour pencils and popped him up on dimensionals. There’s LOADS of sparkle on this … I covered his hat and gloves with my clear glitter pen; clear gloss and glitter to the ‘furry’ bits on his hat; and then more glitter dropped into my enamel dots. Corner die is an oldie from Memory Box and sentiment die from Simon Says.

Lynne Jardine Penguin Fun

Here’s a sweet Christmas card from Lynne. She said she couldn’t decide which of the penguins she wanted to use, so she used them all! Adorable!!!

Here’s what else Lynne wrote:
The two in the corner look like they’ve got cold feet, the dude in the middle is having a blast sliding down the hill, and the guy to the right definitely looks like the Health and Safety Officer LOL
Coloured with watercolour pencils, and clear gloss added to their beaks and feet.  I finished my card with a Simon Says Stamp Christmas die, Paper Smooches snowflake die, a little silver star and some clear bling.

lynne-jardine-carol-singers

Here’s a wonderful Christmas card from Lynne. I just love the cheery colors and of course all of her shading. Thank you Lynne for choosing this as your family Christmas card!

Here’s what she wrote:
I loved these little carol singers so much I decided to use it as my card to my family and friends, so there’s been a bit of a production line on my table!  I’ve coloured my little family with watercolour pencils and added glitter to their baubles, trim of Dad’s Santa hat, and Mum’s ear muffs.  Clear gloss added to the lantern glass, and I covered the boy’s hat, Dad’s scarf and the little girl’s skirt in my clear sparkle pen.  I also added some Frosted Lace stickles to the ground for my fallen snow, so there’s LOTS of sparkle on this card!

lynne-jardine-count-bitesalot

Count Bitesalot has never looked so dashing. I love the deep dark purple of the background and the added touch of purple on the inside of his cape. Bwa-ha-haaa (that’s the best vampire impression I do in text). :) I always love Lynne’s attention to detail – the enamel dots, the little white stitches, even the swish of purple over the word “bite”.

Here’s how Lynne created her card:
I’ve coloured the Count with watercolour pencils and covered the purple in his cape with some clear sparkle. The bat is heat embossed on the background (which is the same purple as the cape but has photographed totally different). A doodled border and some black enamel dots to finish.

Here’s a totally fun Halloween card from Lynne. She’s used those fabulous clouds in the background again – I just love them. I also love all the little details – the faux stitching, the stars, enamel dots – these really bring the card to life. But I don’t think Witch Hazel is ever going to escape running into that darn tree.

Here’s what Lynne wrote:
I coloured my image with watercolour pencils, and covered the leaves and the broom with my clear glitter pen.  I added clear gloss to her eye and glasses, and to her shoes.  Clouds chalked in the background.  I used an old starry embossing folder for my backing – it looks blue here but it’s purple in real life.  I doodled my stitched edge and added green enamel dots and a few star dies to finish.

October Calendar - Count Bitesalot
Here’s a wonderful calendar page from Lynne. I just love all the black, white and gray. And don’t you just know that a vampire’s cape would have a red lining! The little bits of green add just a sweet pop of another color.

Here’s what Lynne wrote:
Count Bitesalot is definitely not a scary vampire, and even his bats are cuties! I’ve coloured The Count with my watercolour pencils and added some clear gloss to his eyes and to the little bat. I masked him off, and then stamped the Skully Flowers several times. I hand wrote the calendar dates and stamped Bert Batula just above. Then I just chalked in a few clouds along the top edge, doodled a stitched border and added a few coloured enamel accents. I also covered the red part of his cape and all the little skull flowers with my clear glitter pen so it’s lovely and sparkly.

Lynne Jardine - Webster

Here’s a sweet birthday card from Lynne. Having the multi colored zig zag background adds a whole lot of fun to this card’s background. I love how she’s added the big red circle, but cropped it in the corner. It really calls attention to little Webster and his bark bubble. She said that she used her watercolor pencils to color him in and added a little clear gloss to his nose and eyes. Adding a bit of dimensional tape behind Webster and the bark bubble made them pop even more.
