Hello crafty friends,

ohhhhhhh what a week! It’s been a bit of a mad house with us! Play dates and commissions, and meetings and homework! And to top it all off, our printer was on the fritz! It has been driving me crazy for months, and finally I just splurged for a new one! HURRAH for technology that works!

The great news is that I finally got the Lawn Fawn Party Animal stamp and die set -YAY!! – it was been on back order for weeks and weeks, and then SURPRISE – it arrived! Of course, the postie tried to deliver it within the only 20 mins of the day that we were all out of the house! GRR! So I nipped out on Tuesday to get it from the depot – took a quick excited look in the package, uploaded a quick celebratory ‘HAPPY MAIL’ photo to Instagram and then set to the side until later in the week when I finally had some time to play!

I have been drooling over this stamp set for ages, so I knew exactly what I wanted to make with it. So it wasn’t until tidy-up time that i realised that one of my stamps was missing – the little party hat with the flag!

Oh boy I hunted high and low! I looked at every item i used throughout the card making process. I pulled out stuff that i didn’t use. I patted down my clothes, I crawled round the floor… and about 1am I decided to refer to the video footage on my video camera. I then realised that the stamp wasn’t in the set right at the very start of the video. huh?

I was tired, and grumpy, and frustrated – so I made my way to bed! As I climbed into bed, I was reading some instagram comments from lovely sympathetic people, when I remembered my Happy Mail photo from the few days before. And on the photo, you can clearly see that the stamp is not in the package! HOW DID I MISS THAT? Crazy! But, I phoned the shop who told me to contact Lawn Fawn, and so I am hoping we can get my stamp replaced. Fingers crossed!

over to the card! Here it is!

I have paired up some of the animals from the Party Animal stamp set, with the skunk from the Stinkin’ cute set. I wanted to keep the card bright, so i coloured the image with light copic colours, rather than going very dark. To add a pop of background colour, I used some SSS dye inks to blend some colour onto the die cut circles in the background!

I wanted to use the ‘Let’s Party’ stamp from this set, but to make it more interesting, I paired it up with a smaller greeting from the Jump for Joy set – i think they work well together, don’t you?

This time, I decided not to use black ink for my greeting (I nearly always use black!), but instead kept my colours to the pink-blue-yellow colours that I used for the background circles! I think it gives a nice lift to the card!

Thanks for stopping by, and fingers crossed I get that little stamp sorted!



Hey there crafty friends!

I am still in the Autumn Mood – how about you? Today we went for a long walk with my doggy friend Hugo, and Princess Piper was going crazy picking up beautiful leaves, acorns, and ‘helicopters’. :-)

And so I was inspired to create another autumnal themed card- so i reached for the new Lawn Fawn Jump For Joy set – which has lots of cute critters and autumn images- and before long, an idea came to mind.

I love to mix and match my stamps, and I LOVE how the Lawn Fawn stamps work so well together. For this card I used the Joy To The Woods set for the trees, the Jump For Joy set for the leaves, hedgehog and birthday greeting, and the Life Is Good set for the hammock and the word Relax!

My original idea was to make a shaker card with the leaves as the ‘Shaky Bits’ (YT commenter HumanGammaBomb thinks it is funny when I say that phase! LOL), but throughout the video you will see how i change my mind in the end. In fact, you will see me change my mind several times throughout the video! :-) I am still happy with the final result though!


Heres the video for you to enjoy, and be sure to come back over tomorrow as I am sharing a card for Honey Bee Stamps.

Have a good one!

HELLO and welcome to another HungryHeffyCrafts project – and today I have a card with cute kitties and lots of texture!

Last week I shared a card using the Page Huggers stamps from Mama Elephant, and well, I am STILL very much in love with them! They totally rock my world! I decided to use the cute kitty stamp to create a congratulatory wedding card for my colleague Arwen, who incidently is the owner of an equally cute kitty, Bruno!

It’s funny how the same stamp can look completely different when coloured in a different way – a little copic marker magic sure does go a long way!

I used the Lawn Fawn small stitched rectangle dies as well as the Mama Elephant All prettied Up die to create the main part of the card, and then used some Spellbinders oval dies to create a dimensional aperture. I love how this frames our happy couple! The congrats stamp from the Lawn Fawn Big Scripty Words set was the perfect sentiment for this card!

I wanted the colour scheme to be understated, so kept to a light grey fog colour, but used texture to create more interest on the card. I used a Simon Says Stamp stencil with some white embossing paste to add the hearts, some tulle to create a cute veil for the blushing bride, and some Honey Bee Stamps diamonds for a touch of sparkle!

Why not watch the video tutorial so you can see exactly how I made the card!?

Morning Crafty friends, Hope you are all well!
