CCWM – too soon for Christmas?

Hey guys!

The answer was yes! LOL

Well, at least for some of us! Thank you to those who joined me on Friday night for my Come Craft With Me LIVE stream over on my YouTube channel. I wasn’t feeling too great on Friday, and you guys al cheered me up. That, and a little craft therapy!

At the start of the stream, I couldn’t quite bring myself to make a Christmas card…but by the end I was coerced into embracing the upcoming festive season by making a Heffy Christmas card!

You can see the full video of the LIVE stream by watching the video above, or on my Hungry Heffy you tube channel. NOTE  – it is a live unedited stream, and not a short cardmaking video tutorial. Feel free to skim through it, or put it on in the background whilst you are doing something else. 😀

First up was this guy! I masked the background using some masking paper cut with a spellbinders die, and used my dye ink pads to with a blending tol to create a soft ink blended background. I am IN LOVE with it!

I splattered the inky background with some water using a paintbrush, and then splattered it (and my monitor it would seem) with some white watercolour paint.

The trees are from Lawn Fawn’s Loveable Legends stamp set and the cute beastie is from the Yeti Set Go set, also from Lawn Fawn. This set also contains the ‘need a hug sentiment’.

I used a die from the Lawn Fawn Rooting For You set to cut a speech bubble kinda shape (its actually a turnip!!) and then stamped a heart onto it using my Heffy Doodle Unbearable Without You set (SSS | AZ).

Next stop… a shaker card for a 18 year old boy.

I used the same two dye inks to blend an ombre background, and then die cut the numbers, inlaid them, and embossed the happy birthday greeting. Yes – i did accidentally put my finger onto the hot embossed area, leaving a nice layer of epithelial on there! Fun times!

For inside the shaker, I added some seed beads, a white sequin mix, and some metal shaker elements from Cheery Lynn. They say AWESOME! I think the metal gives this card are more masculine feel! Plus, the elements are pretty cool!

The bear is from the Lawn Fawn party animal set and I coloured him in with my copics. I used a craft knife to cut slits in his paws so he could hold the cake a bit better. Then I added some presents from the Lawn Fawn Toboggan Together set.

For my last card, I crumbled under peer pressure to make a Christmas card! LOL. The request was to make a Heffy Christmas card using Heffy Doodle stamps – and how could i refuse?

I created an ink blended background with my distress inks and used my Lawn Fawn landscape dies to build up a scene – adding a little ink to bring in some colour. The Merry Christmas is also from the Toboggan Together set, and I love the way the white heat embossing looks against the blended background. (This time i did not poke it!)

For the main event, I chose two elephants from the Heffy Doodle Elephant of Surprise stamp set, and added some santa hats, and snowballs from some other Lawn Fawn sets. I love how they coordinate well together!

I added some Marvy snow marker to the white sections of the hats and heated it up with my embossing tool to make it poofy!

There we go! Three cards! BA-DA-BOOM!

Don’t forget that I do a LIVE crafting stream every friday – I would love for you to join me! Hop on over to my Youtube channel and subscribe. Perhaps turn on notifications – that way you can know when I am live. <3

Happy Crafting!
