Card Making

Hello everyone,

I am excited to have a video up for Heffy Doodle today, featuring this sweet bear from Beary Big Heart, and the sentiment from Happy Snappy Crocs. I have paired it up with the Pinata stamp from Lawn Fawn. Doesn’t he look like he is having a fun time?!

In the video I am sharing how to create this card from start to finish, including how to add a pop of colour to some boring old while embossing paste, and how you can use this with stencils to create fun dimensional backgrounds.

I have used sentiments from the Happy Snappy Crocs stamp set, and used my MISTI so i could stamp them a few times to build up the colours. I wanted to bring in the other colours in the card, for example the pink in the pinata.

To watch the video, hop on over to the Heffy Doodle blog, or YouTube channel, where there is new videos every week!

Hello Crafty friends!

Happy Monday! Woo! Easter holidays are over, and miss Pi is back at school, which means I can actually get some work done today- woohoo! 🙂 It’s been lovely having her round the house, but let’s just say i am also glad to be able to clean the house without turning round to a mess again! LOL

Right,… you are not here to talk about housework – let’s take a look at my card for today! 🙂

I have made a shaker card for today, made with some images that I pre-stamped and pre-coloured (so my apologises that the colouring is not on the video). I like to bring my copics to the coffee shop to keep me amused, and these lil’ guys certainly did keep me amused.

My original idea was to have a scene with Mumma and Papa snail saying cheerio to their little guy as he goes off on an adventure. Aren’t these guys so cute!? They are from Lawn Fawn Gleeful Gardens set, and I also used Lawn Fawn stiched cluod backdrop along with the grassy hillside pop up die.

For my shaky bits, i used silver star sequins, clear seed beads and the Cottage Garden mix from Lucy’s little things. I also added some cute flowers from the MFT Stiched flower dynamics.

For the sentiment, i used a set called Up and Away from Mama Elephant – i thought this message was cute, and i love the combo of the two fonts. First I cut out a banner shaped aperture so that i had a smooth surface to stamp on.

There you go!

Scroll below to see the full video, or you can watch on YouTube. I will be back on Friday for this weeks Come Craft With Me LIVE crafting video. We have installed some new software and I am excited to try it out some more.

Happy Crafting!

This week i cleaned out my craft room, and sorted my sequins into new storage containers… and i realised that i have sooooooo many sequins. I thought that i would make some shakers tonight – and i wasn’t going to skimp on the shakey bits!

First up, i created a three panel shaker card with a rectangle die on a A2 card. I used my distress oxides to create a fun blue background inside the shaker panels.

I added some critters from Lawn Fawn to swim in my shaker sea, and then added a Simon Says Stamp hello die to my card. I added some red ink to the top of the pink die cut, to mimic the cute octopussy.

Next up- a baby card, because my sister-in-law is being induced today! Weeeee! I can’t wait to find out if we are getting a new niece or a new nephew. If its a girl, then i am all set with this card! First up, i used a Mama Elephant heart die to create three heart apertures and added lots of sequins behind.

I used a sentiment from a Paula Pascual stamp set, but replaced the work baby with the Heffy Doodle Baby Heffy cuts die. I stacked up a few layers to give it some dimension. So cute!

So technically, this is not a shaker card at all, but it was inspired by shakers. I used some dies from Studio Katia to create a frame, and then from the inside piece, i used the Heffy Doodle stitched strips of ease dies to cut strips out of this section. Then I replaced every other strip when i stuck it all down onto some acetate.

Through the windows, I created my own rainbow using lots of buttons – another surplus in my craft stash! To turn this into a card (and to hide the fact that the last strip was wider than the rest! teehee) I added a cute leprechaun from Heffy Doodle -layered on some black craft foam. I also used the Good Luck die from the Heffy Doodle clover frames dies. I love this card a lot!

Thanks for visiting, and if you want to watch the full video on play back – it’s right here, and also on Youtube. See you next time!
