Card Making

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!

Hello everyone, It’s Lesley here, aka Hungry Heffy.

I am thrilled to be hijacking the Chibi-blog today with a fun interactive project which features some Heffy Doodle stamps. And, if you are familiar with my work, you probably know that i LOVE an interactive card, so not only does this card light up it also has a built in shaker element!

The video above walks you through how I made it, but if you prefer photos – let’s take a look!

I started by cutting two A2 pieces of card, and then used a scalloped die to trim down one panel. Next I did some ink blending using dye ink, and splattered it with water and white watercolour paint. I used some alpha dies to cut out  some letters as well -‘U GUYS R’.

For the images I stamped two elephants from the sweet Heffy Doodle Elephant of Surprise stamp set (SSS* | AZ*)  and coloured them with my copic markers. I also stamped a balloon from this set, and added a heart onto it using the Heffy Doodle Happy Snappy Crocs set (SSS* | AZ*) – this is where I will add my Chibitronics LED.

I used a pink light from the Chibitronics Tropicals set  (CHI*) – I love this colour! I added a simple circuit to my base layer, and put the battery over by the bottom right, where I would add my second elephant.

I added a small ‘press here’ image onto this elephant using the Heffy Doodle Interactively Yours stamp set (SSS* | AZ*). There’s so many great images in this set for interactive card lovers like me!

Before adhering my top panel in place, I added acetate behind my die cut letters, added a foam tape frame and sprinkled on some Honey Bee Stamps (HBS*) sequins. I used smaller sequins because I didn’t want my shaker to be too thick. I added a little ground using a stitched landscape die (SSS*), stuck down my elephants and to finish off I added the word ‘fabulous’ cut from craft foam using a Honey Bee Stamps die (HBS*).

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed the video. Please feel free to check out my profile over on instagram, and follow me for more crafty projects. 😀

Happy Crafting

CCWM – Hooray! Fall is here!

Hello everyone!

I am calling it! Technically, if you were to go ‘by the books’ it is not ‘quite’ Autumn yet, but I am ready to switch on Autumn in my house!

Fall is my most favouritist season. I LOVE IT! I love the smell, the food, the warmth, the colours, the EVERYTHING! And every year, I get super excited about Autumn. We also decorate our mantle with lots of Autumnal elements – just to bring the fantastic fall-ness inside!

So I simply had to make a Fall card on this week’s Come Craft With Me!

I used two stamp sets from Lawn Fawn – ‘Jumping for Joy’ and ‘Yay, Kites’ and mixed these with some dies from Mama Elephant. I love the sweet scalloped edge on this All Prettied Up die.

I am still suffering from some RSI (Repetitive Strain injury) so I didn’t want to be doing too much ink blending…. but i simply couldn’t do ANY! Just a little for the background! I used my distress inks with a foam applicator.

The fox is super cute. I love him. I coloured him and the leaves with my copic markers, as well as a few images for the inside of my card. Here’s a peek.

Because my card base was a dark colour, I layered on a piece of white card, cut with the Outside In stitched rectangle dies, also from Lawn Fawn.

I am off to take a big box out of the attic, so I can decorate my mantel and get into the spirit of Autumn….. and maybe I will pick up a cheeky Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks!  Why not!

😀

Have a great day!

Lesley
