Card Making

Video Available here —>   https://youtu.be/7-i991c3DpA

Hello everyone, It’s Lesley here, aka Hungry Heffy.

I am thrilled to be hijacking the Chibi-blog today with a fun interactive project which features some Heffy Doodle stamps. And, if you are familiar with my work, you probably know that i LOVE an interactive card, so not only does this card light up it also has a built in shaker element!

The video above walks you through how I made it, but if you prefer photos – let’s take a look!

I started by cutting two A2 pieces of card, and then used a scalloped die to trim down one panel. Next I did some ink blending using dye ink, and splattered it with water and white watercolour paint. I used some alpha dies to cut out  some letters as well -‘U GUYS R’.

For the images I stamped two elephants from the sweet Heffy Doodle Elephant of Surprise stamp set (SSS* | AZ*)  and coloured them with my copic markers. I also stamped a balloon from this set, and added a heart onto it using the Heffy Doodle Happy Snappy Crocs set (SSS* | AZ*) – this is where I will add my Chibitronics LED.

I used a pink light from the Chibitronics Tropicals set  (CHI*) – I love this colour! I added a simple circuit to my base layer, and put the battery over by the bottom right, where I would add my second elephant.

I added a small ‘press here’ image onto this elephant using the Heffy Doodle Interactively Yours stamp set (SSS* | AZ*). There’s so many great images in this set for interactive card lovers like me!

Before adhering my top panel in place, I added acetate behind my die cut letters, added a foam tape frame and sprinkled on some Honey Bee Stamps (HBS*) sequins. I used smaller sequins because I didn’t want my shaker to be too thick. I added a little ground using a stitched landscape die (SSS*), stuck down my elephants and to finish off I added the word ‘fabulous’ cut from craft foam using a Honey Bee Stamps die (HBS*).

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed the video. Please feel free to check out my profile over on instagram, and follow me for more crafty projects. 😀

Happy Crafting

CCWM – Hooray! Fall is here!

Hello everyone!

I am calling it! Technically, if you were to go ‘by the books’ it is not ‘quite’ Autumn yet, but I am ready to switch on Autumn in my house!

Fall is my most favouritist season. I LOVE IT! I love the smell, the food, the warmth, the colours, the EVERYTHING! And every year, I get super excited about Autumn. We also decorate our mantle with lots of Autumnal elements – just to bring the fantastic fall-ness inside!

So I simply had to make a Fall card on this week’s Come Craft With Me!

I used two stamp sets from Lawn Fawn – ‘Jumping for Joy’ and ‘Yay, Kites’ and mixed these with some dies from Mama Elephant. I love the sweet scalloped edge on this All Prettied Up die.

I am still suffering from some RSI (Repetitive Strain injury) so I didn’t want to be doing too much ink blending…. but i simply couldn’t do ANY! Just a little for the background! I used my distress inks with a foam applicator.

The fox is super cute. I love him. I coloured him and the leaves with my copic markers, as well as a few images for the inside of my card. Here’s a peek.

Because my card base was a dark colour, I layered on a piece of white card, cut with the Outside In stitched rectangle dies, also from Lawn Fawn.

I am off to take a big box out of the attic, so I can decorate my mantel and get into the spirit of Autumn….. and maybe I will pick up a cheeky Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks!  Why not!

😀

Have a great day!

Lesley

Hello gang,

We are testing out a new video software this week. Thats good news for you, because you get an extra video tutorial! 😀

Today’s card is a fairly simple design, but I love the texture created by the embossing paste. And doesn’t this bear just look the CUTEST with his little brolly!

A few weeks back I shared a card for the Love From Lizi birthday blog hop, and I used my gelatos to colour the die cut feather shapes. I got LOADS of comments saying how they loved that I showed a way to use gelatos – so i decided to pull them out again for another fun card. Yep – that’s right, I coloured my rain BLUE with my gelatos. It’s quick, it’s simple, IT’S MEGA FUN!

The bear is from Bitty Bears from MFT and I coloured him with my new Zig clean color real brush markers. The greeting is from Hero Arts.

Enjoy the video!
