Card Making

NOTE – i am part of two hops today, one for Chibitronics and another for Heffy Doodle. To visit the other project click here to open in a new tab. Hop along on both posts for more chances to win.

Hello everyone,

Today I am super honored to be creating not one, but two projects in support of a very worthy cause – Autism Awareness Day!

To start the Chibitronic hop, please visit the Chibitronics blog here so you can go through the whole hop.

Here is my project which features some products from Heffy Doodle stamps (which actually has a sale right now!)

So incase you didn’t know, the brief for this hop was BLUE – as the tagline for Autism Awareness is ‘Shine a light on autism – Light it up blue’, and with CHibitronics we can ACTUALLY light it up in BLUE!

So blue LEDs were a must, and i thought i would use the Beary Big Heart stamp set, with the little bear holding the heart, and then make the heart light up. But instead of having a push button, I wanted a slide switch. The bunny (from Heffy Doodle Honey Bunny Boo stamp set) is attached to the ‘Slide me’ switch at the bottom – move it to the left and the bunny moves over to also hug the heart, lighting it up blue. Oh…btw, the Slide Me is from Heffy Doodle Interactively Yours stamp set.

These photos above were taken so you can see the LEDs behind the vellum, however after this, i covered the heart with glossy accents, it is less noticeable in the finished card.

For the sentiment i used the Lucky Heffy Cuts die along with some sentiments from the Heffy Doodle Lucky Friends stamp set – they go great together.

Right… let’s light this up!

TA-DA! I always think it’s quite magical! and for those of you who wish to see the circuit beneath all of this – here’s a little diagram of how i made it.

In addition, there is some copper tape on the back of the slider, which connects the broken section in the copper tape when you slide the bunny across.

Thanks for stopping by, please head back to the Chibitronics blog to see the next person on the list.

And remember to wear something blue today & keep Autism Awareness close to your heart. <3

x hugs

Ink Smooching Mermaid (video)

Hello team craft-a-lot!

i’m not sure if you have noticed, but i’m trying real hard to make more edited videos. To be honest, ever since changing away from my macbook its been a real struggle. It just takes so long to edit. But i *think* i’m getting in the swing of things….. please say i haven’t jinxed myself! LOL

In today’s video I am making an ink smooched background with my distress inks and oxides. I’m using the Mermaid for you stamp set from Lawn Fawn along with some images from the Life is Good set. I love how they coordinate together.

I am also creating a two-tones sentiment which brings in the yellow and peach colours that i have in my scene. The MISTI tool makes this super duper easy! I love it! I also added a sweet ‘with love’ sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Tiny Tag Sayings set.

For the water background i used my distress inks and for the sea bed i used the oxide. I love that there is a more chalky finish with the oxides- i think it kinda makes it look more ‘sandy’. 🙂

This girl really needed some sparkle, so i covered her tailfin with stickles. Just look at that shine! ohhh pretty!

I totally got a smudge on my card… but never fear, nothing that can’t be easily covered by a little sequin or too! teehee!

Here’s the full video. Please watch and i hope you enjoy it. Feel free to leave me a little comment to encourage me to make more edited videos if that what you would like to see. I guess my live streams have made me a little lazy!

Happy Crafting!

Hello crafty friends,

I have a video today on how I made an Easter card with four different shaker panels. This card was inspired by an oval die that was in the MFT Tree-mendous die set – i thought it looked like an Easter egg!  Take a look!

I do love an interactive card, so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to create something bright, colourful and full of Heffy Doodle goodness!  These Honey Bunny Boo stamp sets have been a big hit so far, and they are perfect for Easter cards when combined with the Easter Heffy Cuts die.

Scroll on down to watch the video, and please feel free to leave me a comment.

thanks for hopping by. Happy Crafting!
