Sweet, Fab Friend – & A Celebratory GIVEAWAY!! {video}



Oh crafty, crafty friends! My sweet and fabulous crafty friends! Not only do I have a video for you guys today, but I also have a GIVEAWAY!! YAYYYY!!

A celebratory giveaway, in honour of reaching 5000 subscribers over on the HungryHeffycrafts You Tube Channel! YIPPPEEEEE!!

I want to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone who views my crafty work and for the awesome ‘likes’, thumbs ups and comments! You guys are all awesome and you really make my day! So I want to celebrate you guys with a giveaway!

There are three ways to enter the giveaway – see the details at the bottom of this post. 

But first, here is todays project!

I am in LOVE with the adorable Page Huggers stamps from Mama Elephant – I love the cute critters and they way you can tuck the stamped images beneath their paws! I am dropping hints to hubby that I simply NEED the coordinating dies!

I have matched these stamps with some grass and cloud dies, as well as the madison avenue dies to create a frame. For the greeting I have used the ‘wonderful‘ and ‘fabulous‘ dies and the Sentiment Builder stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps. I love that the Sentiment Builder set gives such great versatility, and I think they worked really well with the design of the card!

I stamped the bunny and mouse image, along with some of the coordinating images from the same Page Huggers set,  onto neenah cardstock and used copic markers to colour them in. I actually wanted the mouse to be a rat, so I tried to colour him a bit like a hooded rat, which is why his head is darker from the rest of his body. I used a little twine for his tail…… Oh man, I wish I was allowed to have pet rats!

Here’s the video, where you can see the whole process of how I made the rat version of this card, but I loved the result so much I made two cards with the same template but mixed it up with colours, critters and sentiments!



NOW… Over to the giveaway details!! 🙂

Everyone loves happy mail, right!?   😀  well…I have a plethora of crafty goodies for a lucky winner! The stash contains several stamp sets, a SimonSaysStamp ink pad, washi tape, ribbon, charms, embossing powder, wooden veneers, some project life cards, a copic ciao marker, an abundance of embellishments…and more! UPDATE — The winner will ALSO receive a gift voucher to the value of $15 for the Honey Bee Stamps Shop, kindly donated by the wonderful team over at Honey Bee Stamps <3

    These little cards are so cute and I love the little critters! I especially liked your idea of gluing fun foam to your cardstock before running it through your die cutting machine so it doesn’t get all misshapen! Never thought of that before and will definitely be implementing that idea! Thank you so much for sharing your crafting and card making videos with us! And thank you for sharing your great ideas too! Congrats on reaching 5,000 subscribers on YouTube!

    Hi there, I watch you on YouTube and I always love what you make. Your cards are always ” de bon goût ” and I am sure I can recreate the same card with my choice of materials and my hand design as I don’t have the stamps you used. So, I really be very glad to do the same thing with the appropriate material if I am the winner!

  • Wendy Peacock Stevens September 12, 2016, 3:51 pm

    I’m excited to try your technique of incorporating the foam craft into the card. It just looks so much nicer and they jump right out at you and into your arms (the little bear and others)!!!
