Come Craft With Me

Hey guys! Its been a busy old week – because we are celebrating release week at Heffy Doodle HQ. We are so excited by the great response, and the wonderful comments that we have received about this release. In last week’s live stream I did give you guys some sneak peeks, but this week I was dying to get playing with some of the other stamp sets that I hadn’t really used much.

In case you are new to Come Craft With Me – scroll down to the end of this post for more details. Let’s look at the projects up close!

Products used listed below, with affiliate links.

First up, a cute card using the Heffy Doodle Geology Rocks stamp set. I decided to use my watercolours to colour the volcano today so i used some watercolour cardstock for the most of this card. I created the front panel using the Mama Elephant All Prettied Up dies. I added some inked clouds to the backdrop using Tumbled Glass distress inks and the cloud die.

I wanted to showcase two fun elements in the Heffy Doodle Geology Rocks set – firstly the stitched swirly lines that you can use to emboss steam rising from the volcano. I love the way this works. You could use it behind a car or as a snow flurry, or in many different ways.

I also wanted to show how you can stamp the face image, die cut it, and then stick onto your projects. I love to give cute faces to ALL THE THINGS!

I inked my front panel and added a sentiment which is also from the Geology Rocks stamp set.

Next up – a fun card using the Beary Big Heart and Jet Alphabetters. Okay…this is a pretty specific card, but wouldn’t it be the cutest little thing to receive – such a great keepsake!

I used a speech bubble die to create a mask then inked below it using some dye inks. I used the Jet Alphabetters to create the custom sentiment, and then stamped and coloured my bear and ring from the Beary Big Heart set.

The bear I coloured using my copics, and I added a little shadow underneath him to help make him look like he was grounded. For the ring, I used my embossing pen to add clear ink to the band and then embossed it using Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder. I love how it looks golden!

For the diamond, I used my sakura clear glitter pen and then carefully added some glossy accents on top. I had to leave it aside after that, because I have a habit of putting my finger in the glossy accents before it’s dry. 😀

This next one is an encouragement card. Coming from Northern Ireland, I am very familiar with rainy days – but what a sweet way to brighten up someone’s day than with a smiling umbrella. For this card I cut out a skinny panel, added some stitched edges, inked it with some Distress Oxides, then used a stencil to add rain drops. The stencil I made myself using my silhouette cameo.

The sentiment is a mix-and-match, the Be Happy is from the Beary Big Heart set, and the Sending Warm Hugs is from the Heffy Doodle Warm Hugs stamp set. I added some lovely nuvo drops to the project (Thanks Maria for the surprise crafty gift – i love my nuvo drops!).

Remember the eyes I stuck onto the volcano? Well, in the Geology Rocks die set, there is also another die where you can die cut little eyes and a mouth into things! This time i die cut the face into the brolly – in the end I actually stamped the eyes on a separate piece of card and layered this below, but its not necessary. I just think it looks sweet!

The NEW Heffy Doodle release is available for purchase NOW, both in the Heffy Doodle store and also with our Retail Partners. Please go and check it out – as a new business, we really, really appreciate your support.

UPDATED

Hey gang – sneaking back into this blog post to add some more photos! This card was made using some Distress Oxide Ink, and the Warm Hugs and Elfish Antic images.

I also added a sentiment from the Elfing Christmas Words stamp set.

I showed how you can add the water ripple image, and use the coordinating die to cut a curvy slit into the image. I decided to tuck in a candy cane from the Elfish Antics set. 

I love adding some poofiness with the marvy snow marker. It’s lots of fun!

For this card I used my twinkling H2Os to colour in the gem images from Heffy Doodle Geology Rocks. I love the sparkle it gives them.
I decided to go for a shaker card this time, so used some diamond shaky bits from both Honey Bee Stamps and Studio Katia. The Under Pressure sentiment was the perfect addition.

On the inside, I added some more of the sentiments that come with this Geology Rocks set, and I also added the diamond stamp – covered it in glitter! SHINY!

For this next card – I used Beary Big Heart. I used the heart border die from Lawn Fawn to create this background panel and then used my distress inks to create the rainbow effect behind it.

The bear looks pretty happy to be outside during his rainbow shower! 😀 He was coloured using copic markers.

I decided to use sentiments from this set to add a greeting. I love that this set has girlfriend, boyfriend, wife, husband and Fiance(e) greetings. They are going to be so handy!

Thanks again for stopping by, and i hope you will join me for another Come Craft With Me LIVE stream this Friday at 9pm GMT.

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! 😀
