The time has finally come…it’s DAY ONE of our HEFFY DOODLE reveals!
You have had sneaks, you have been teased, but now it’s time to see our first ever revealed stamp set! Ladies and gentlemen, Heffy Doodle is proud to present…

ELEPHANT OF SURPRISE

 

Elephant of Surprise is one of Heffy Doodle’s four animal themed stamp sets which make up the core collection of our first release. Not only will the stamp set contain these adorable elephant stamps, but also a host of supporting images to help accessorise your elephant. You will see that every single image has a coordinating die – how super fun is that!?

In addition to the images, there are a range of sentiments which are both practical and fun! Everyone loves a pun, right?  The sentiment images have been created in both a small, plain font and a bolder, more whimsical font – and you will see more of these as we reveal more of the release! This will allow you to mix and match the sentiment stamps across the whole range – giving you lots of versatility!

Be sure to check out the video to see some more projects made using the ELEPHANT OF SURPRISE stamps and dies – and also to hear more about the quality that you will see when you buy Heffy Doodle products.

This is our first big exciting reveal, and there are more to come each day this week as we run up to the Kickstarter launch on 3rd July. The Kickstarter will be going live at 12 noon BST, so be sure to mark you calendars! You can also visit www.heffydoodle.com and sign up to the mailing list to be kept up to date!

Hello my sweet friends!
The time has come! You know what they say – time flies when you have craft supplies to play with! 🙂
Today is my last blogging day as part of the Honey Bee Stamps Design Team. Of course I am a little sad, but I prefer to look at this differently and be thankful for the last year that I have spent on this sweet design team. So today, I am sharing a celebration card!

I am celebrating the fact that I have had the pleasure of serving two terms on the HBS team, and that I have had the opportunity to play with so many of their awesome products. I am celebrating that the awesome Melissa helped make it possible for me to go to Creativation in January, where I not only had a blast, but also allowed me to meet so many more wonderful people in this industry. I am celebrating that this year, I was lucky enough to be invited to illustrate stamp sets for the Honey Bee Stamps brand. It still makes me smile so much to see projects made with the stamps that started life as a doodle in my notebook! So, THANK YOU Melissa, to Lisa, Taniesa and EVERY single one of the other wonderful people that work behind the scenes to make this a fabulous craft company. ALSO, thank you to everyone who visited the Honey Bee Stamps blogs to see my projects and for the sweet comments that you leave!

Anyway… enough blubbering, let’s get on with the card for today! I hope you like it!

Every one knows that celebrations need balloons, right? YEAH! So I used the balloon dies from the Celebration Box die set to cut out some mini masks from post it note paper. Next up I grabbed a few distress inks so I could add some colourful balloons to create a background. I did one at a time, working from the left to the right, and I overlapped them slightly to create more interest.

 I was mindful of colours that would work well together – I didn’t want to accidentally create any muddy looking overlaps. I love the soft effect this gives! The round mini blending tool from ranger was perfect for this technique.  After I had finished my balloons, I used some of the confetti element stamps from the coordinating Celebration Box stamp set, and used the same colours to add some fun confetti to the background.

Next I die cut a rectangle from vellum to layer on top of my card, and then I simply had to add my greeting and a few embellishments. Of course I HAD to use the Celebrate Honey cuts die – it was simply perfect for this occasion! I used it on some self adhesive black foam and carefully stuck it to the front of the vellum. To adhere the vellum to the balloon panel, I used tiny glue dots behind the sentiment, and I also added a few in other places, which I managed to hid with a few pretty sequins!

There we have it!

Thank you HONEY BEE STAMPS for all the fun and creativity over the last year. You’re so SWEET – sweet as honey in fact!

Big hugs!

Lesley
