It was Friday last night, which meant another ‘Come Craft With Me’ session on YouTube – where I had another great evening filled with crafting and chit chat! A huge thanks to all who joined me!
Above is the video of the live stream – so in case you don’t know what this is – every Friday night, at 9pm BST, i turn on the webcam and do a little crafting LIVE on air. You can watch live – dipping in and out as you please or sticking around for the whole session – or you can watch the video afterwards. If you join us LIVE, it means you can ask questions and interact with all the awesome gang who make this experience so much fun! Every week we all learn LOADS – not just tips and techniques, but also get lots of ideas and inspiration, we share challenges and things we have learnt! Its so FUN!
Last night I was making a ‘well done’ card for a friend who is currently obsessed with Big Foot. Naturally, the cute Big Foot image from the Lawn Fawn Loveable Legends set was the perfect stamp for this card. I kept the front rather simple in design, but will be making it into a shaker card- with some sequins by Honey Bee Stamps peeking out from some die cut alphas.
I wanted the front to be quite plain, so that the inside REALLY pops …and I really DO mean POP! That’s right, I am making a pop up element inside the card, with Mister Big Foot holding a flower.
This card is for my friend Elizabeth who also has her own YouTube Channel – Occasional Vlog. Her vlog follows her wonderful family, and is also documenting her inspirational journey as she works towards a healthier life. This week she is in Rhodes on a running retreat – which she was not much looking forward to! But she did it! YAY! And she definitely deserves a little Hungry Heffy Crafts handmade card as a ‘pat on the back’.
Please head over and take a look at her channel – but if you are anything like me, I get addicted and end up watched loads! 🙂 youtube.com/occasionalvlog
I used some Honey Bee Stamps embellishments for the shaker on the front. These blue and green tones were simply beautiful – I think they look so pretty. Here’s a closer look!
For the inside, I used some Lawn Fawn puffy cloud border dies, and simple grassy hillside dies to cut out the ground and the tree canopy – and added some kraft stamped trees using the Joy To The Woods stamp set – also from Lawn Fawn.
On the inside, I added a ‘congratulations’ message from the Mama Elephant Sunday Sentiments stamp set, and then added the ‘you’re unbelievable’ from the same Loveable Legends set that has the bigfoot image in there. I decided to do these in two different colours so they really popped!
If you watch the video you will see that the congratulations stamp didn’t quite go according to plan – but like they say in ‘Project Runway’ – I simply had to MAKE IT WORK!
With the help of my LIVE viewers, we decided to add on a silver frame and some stars to the front! I love the way the Big Foot is peeking out of the star – I don’t this it is immediately obvious what creature he actually is at this point – but as soon as Elizabeth opens the card – I am sure she will be delighted to find a furry friend inside!
Thanks for stopping by, and mark your calendars for next Friday – I hope you can come and join in the LIVE fun!
