Hello crafty friends!
I am so excited! Today is World Card Making Day and us Heffy Doodlers are celebrating with a FREE digital stamp. WOOHOO! We just announced our Heffy Doodle Design Team this week, and we are kicking things off with some super amazing fun!
And in fact, its actually TWO freebies – because when I originally drew a very British postbox, some of the team were left scratching their heads! How funny! So of course I had to doodle a more familiar one to have as an alternative option! LOL
To see some projects and to get the downloadable png digi-stamp files, please visit the Heffy Doodle blog.
For my project, i simply had to use the iconically British one – and I made a fun shaker card.
I used some Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle dies, simple stitched landscape dies and grassy hillside border dies to build up some layers of white card, but then i added colour with some ink brush blending. I also used a rounded rectangle die to cut a panel into the A2 card, and added some embossing paste through a SSS heart stencil. Before it dried, I sprinkled with some fine glitter for a little sparkle!
I wanted to heat emboss on my acetate, and i discovered that my acetate sheets are ALL muddled up. This was a ‘third-time-lucky’ kinda thing, because it turned out that the first two pieces of acetate that i grabbed were not heat resistant (even though they were taking residence in the drawer labelled as such!). Naughty acetate! The stamp is a fun set from SSS – i love its big bold style! I added two layers of foam, which actually meant i had room for some buttons inside, so i just went with it! I also sprinkled in some white and clear sequins.
Here is mister bear! Isn’t he cute? I used my copic markers to colour him and the postbox. I had to go slow with the red tones because they have a tendency to bleed! 🙂
Don’t forget to visit the Heffy Doodle blog to see the rest of the awesome projects made by the team, and to grab your FREE digi stamp. There is a competition and a giveaway happening also! All the details are over there!
