Hey there kiddos,
It’s a Heffy Doodle day today! WOOHOO! And don’t forget to check out the Heffy Doodle blog for today’s update – especially if you are a Kickstarter supporter who is stalking the mailman waiting for your goodies to arrive!
I have been so inspired recently with all the wonderful rainbow themed cards in my Instafeed – it’s because of the Rainbow Maker online class that is over at Online Card Classes.
I grabbed some of the bold images from the Heffy Doodle Interactively Yours stamp set and laid them out in my MISTI so they were all in a line, but with a little gap for my sentiment stamping. Next I picked out some colourful colours of Distress Oxide inks, and first stamped my line of images. I just LOVE the way these distress oxides stamp so evenly. Next I slid my paper over by 3/4 inch, and used the next colour of ink. I repeated this process until I had stamped a rainbow of colours.
Next I used my Lawn Fawn large stitched rectangle die to cut out a panel. I like to stamp first and then die cut the rectangle – this way I can central my stamping easier.
I added the HUGS in a bold black ink, and then had the idea to add a zipper element to my card! You know me… I love an interactive card! I layered this front panel onto some zig zag rectangle of black card and added a white heat embossed greeting onto it (from the Elephant of Surprise stamp set).
To finish the card, I added a cute elephant and cake, and coloured these in with Copic markers, and layered it up on another layer of black die cut card so the images really pop against the colourful background. A few black pearls and we are DONE!
Hey Lesley, i just adore this card, but was wondering how you made or what did you use to make the zipper element it is such a great idea especially for little ones.. Thank you Troy xx
thanks Troy. 😀 I used a die from Mama Elephant called a Zipper die. It is a quick and easy way to create zipper cards! 🙂
Thank you, will have lots of fun with that one 🙂 x
