Hey crafty gang!
Last week I did an extra LIVE craft stream. Sorry I didn’t get a chance to give you guys warning, but when the urge strikes, the urge strikes! LOL. I made a card for my nephew Luke, who has just started Uni. I remember when i started university, I was so flabbergasted about how much it cost to buy basic food. So instead of sending him a care package, I decided to send him a gift card for a grocery store. He can either buy food, snacks or drinkypoohs!
I thought it would be fun to create a background using lots of food images. I really wanted a beer tankard or beer bottle, but i had to make do with the wine bottle- haha! All the images in the background are from Heffy Doodle – and so is the panda….. well, kind of!
He is actually a bear from the Unbearable Without You stamp set – but I decided to stretch my stamps and colour him in like a panda. Massive thank you to Craig who googled a panda face to help me out in the middle of the LIVE stream – he kinda looked like a bandit at one point! 😀
The knife and fork are from a Lawn Fawn Party Animals set – aren’t they simply perfect! I then added a HELLO greeting which is from the Lawn Fawn Yay Kites set. I embossed it in blue and raised this up on a piece of die cut foam for lots of dimension!
Around the outside I added the Dotted Detail frame from Mama Elephant – I love that it is so fine and delicate – even though it can be a little tricky to work with at times.
On the inside, I tried to replicate the cool gift card holder die from Lawn Fawn. I used a folded piece of card, creased it and used a circle die to cut out a curved section. I love that this is a fun surprise when the card is opened! Also inside I added some stamping. The word ENJOY from Lawn Fawn Tiny Tags and the message below is from a Simon Says Stamp Bear Necessities stamp set.
There we have it! I hope Luke enjoys his surprise gift…. although I have just realised that it’s half term at the moment, so I better not post it until next week when he gets back on campus!
Thanks for stopping by, and i hope that you will join me for my regular LIVE crafting stream on Friday nights at 9pm UK time. You can watch LIVE on my youtube channel – youtube.com/hungryheffy – it’s lots of fun! DON’T FORGET – our clocks go back this weekend, which means us Brits are no longer on British Summer Time, but Greenwich Mean Time.
See you next time – where I will be showing you guys some sneaky peekies of the NEW Heffy Doodle Release! 😀
