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!

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!

Happy crafting my friends!
I am excited to have a video up for Heffy Doodle today, featuring this sweet bear from Beary Big Heart, and the sentiment from Happy Snappy Crocs. I have paired it up with the Pinata stamp from Lawn Fawn. Doesn’t he look like he is having a fun time?!
In the video I am sharing how to create this card from start to finish, including how to add a pop of colour to some boring old while embossing paste, and how you can use this with stencils to create fun dimensional backgrounds.
I have used sentiments from the Happy Snappy Crocs stamp set, and used my MISTI so i could stamp them a few times to build up the colours. I wanted to bring in the other colours in the card, for example the pink in the pinata.
To watch the video, hop on over to the Heffy Doodle blog, or YouTube channel, where there is new videos every week!
