Card Making

Hey gang,

In this ComeCraftWithMe LIVE stream, I had a very special guest! YAY! I love having ‘guests’ on CCWM – it’s like when your favourite shows do a Xmas special, or you see a familiar face cameo in an unusual place! So fun! Anywaaaaaay…. in this CCWM video I had the pleasure of Lizi from LoveFromLizi.com. If you are unfamiliar with Lizi, she has a fabulous cardmaking kit each month, and also has an array of mega packs and add on options which you can see over on her shop LoveFromLizi.com. She also has a brill YouTube where she shares wonderful ’10 Cards One Kit videos’ which are jam packed with inspiration.

A very tired looking Lesley & Lizi, after staying up too late crafting 🙂

So we tried something new. Lizi was streaming from her phone to her LoveFromLizi Facebook Group and I was streaming to YouTube. Because of the double set up, we had to use different mics so the audio may be a bit quieter than usual in this video.

Here’s my card!

I simply had to make a card with the You Are Sublime set from Lawn Fawn- and mix this with the new Heffy Doodle Oceans of Love set. They go SO well together! Lizi had the new Lawn Fawn reveal wheel die, so I managed to get one of those for this card! Yippeee!

I decided to use the Whatcha Saying die from Heffy Doodle to create the reveal aperture. I think it works a treat! The sentiments in this set are perfectly sized, so i was able to use these for different word options on my wheel. VOILA!

For an extra special effect, I used the Heffy Doodle Stitched Bubble Background die over the top of the reveal wheel panel, which means there are these cool bubbles on my card – perfect for this underwater scene.  A little distress ink to create my ombre background (with a seabed of course) and all i needed was some critters to finish my scene.

Lizi made some cards using a stamp set from her store and also using the LoveFromLizi mega kit which have some cute hot air balloons.

Want to watch the whole video on playback? Well, here it is. THANK YOU Lizi for coming to play!

CCWM – Heffy Doodle Cards

Hello crafty friends

So it appears that i have completely neglected to update my blog with my Come Craft With Me sessions over the last few weeks. For those of you who subscribe to my blog – please excuse the series of catch up posts that are about to hit your inbox! LOL

First up, this CCWM video where I was showcasing the June release from Heffy Doodle.

First up I have this sweet card featuring the manta ray from the Oceans of Love stamp set. I have created a fun background using the Stitched Bubble Background die, and then masked areas with some acetate as I blended some ink to create rainbow rays.

Of course, I reached for the stitched strips of ease to cut out the sweet sentiment and then created my own action wobbler with acetate so the manta can wibble wobble the day away.

A simple but beautiful card next featuring the Wingman stamps and dies. These cute birdies are sweet and cheeky and are perfect for everyone. I create a simple ink blended background and cut a semi circle channel to create a slider card.

I added a simple cloudy border to the bottom with the CAS greeting – Happy Birdday! Card number 3 is a bit more involved as I wanted to include a Chibitronics light to my card. I used the sweet birthday cake from the Party Palooza set, which has an optional candle that you can add to the cake.

I used a W&W stencil to create the teal striped background and then added my ‘Happy Cake Day To You’ sentiment to a narrower panel with I trimmed with coloured card die cut with some scalloped border dies. I think it looks so sweet. I used my Interactively Yours stamp set to create the little ‘push here’ heart button on the top.

This time, it’s time to get messy. I took the Big Bold Words sentiment set and inked this up in different colours to get a rainbow effect. The MISTI makes this incredibly easy peasy to do. I trimmed my sentiment using a speech bubble die from paper smooches, and then worked on my background using watercolour paints.

I used my gansai tambi watercolour paints and dribbled paint down a piece of card to get this beautiful drip effect. I love that it looks so painterly.

Here is the full video if you feel like watching the play back. It’s a real time video so why not pop it on while getting crafty yourself!?

Happy Crafting my dears!

Hello crafty friends,

To start at the beginning of the blog hop, head over to the Chibi blog here. Full hop list below.

I had the pleasure of meeting the amazing Shay at Creativation this year, and not only does she make fabulous, high quality products, but she is also a kind, loving person that I definitely look up to.

So i was excited to get my hands on some W&W and show you guys how to pair them with chibitronics. For me, I really wanted some more stencils  – and this one, the Classic Diagonal had been on my wishlist for ages!

But I couldn’t NOT use stamps, eh!? 🙂 I wanted to make a project that was colourful, bright and illuminating, so i paired the stencil with the Wishing You stamp set.

I use a little masking tape to create a border around my stars which makes them really pop, and this was the first time i actually embossed using my distress oxides. LOVE IT SO!

Let’s look at the card when the magic button is pressed!

Hooray! I always love seeing the cards light up! If you would like to see the tutorial, check out the video below!
