Come Craft With Me

 

Sometimes you make a card and you hardly even want to give it away!

I am so in love with this card! I think it is because I have used so many of the fabulous brands that I love – and they all work so beautifully together on this one little A2 sized masterpiece!

Thanks to everyone who joined me for the LIVE Come Craft With Me show over on YouTube where I made this card LIVE on air. If you missed it – don’t worry, you can always watch the replay above!

Let’s take a look at the finished card!

This is a teacher thank you card that I have made using products from Heffy Doodle, Lawn Fawn, Mama Elephant, Studio Katia, Simon Says Stamp and Hero Arts! Talk about mixing and matching your stamps!

For my teacher I used the elephant from the Heffy Doodle Elephant of Surprise set, and added a pair of glasses (from the Mama Elephant Page Huggers set) and her skirt is made using the fairy house roof in the Lawn Fawn Fairy Friends set! teehee!

For the blackboard I used the easel from the Mama Elephant Lil Painters stamp set – it was an awesome addition to this fun scene!

I knew I wanted to add these fairies from Lawn Fawn, because I recently got some beautiful sequin and bead mixs from Studio Katia – and they just reminded me of fairies! So I had to add them in there too!

In the Hero Arts set called Everyday Saying, there was this sweet whimsical image that said ‘you’re the best’ – i thought it kinda looked like a child’s handwriting – so i mixed that with some Lawn Fawn Milo’s ABCs to create my sentiment on the front, and then added the ‘Thank you fairy much’ on the inside (from Fairy Friends, Lawn Fawn).

To carry the design through to the inside, I stamped another elephant for the inside of my card. This Ellie is in a different pose, but is from that same Heffy Doodle Elephant of Surprise stamp set. I think she looks so sweet!

 

Thank you so much for stopping by, and i hope you will join me next week for another YouTube LIVE crafting session – Friday nights at 9pm BST over at https://youtube.com/hungryheffy

Have a great day!

Hey crafty friends,

I have set up my event for this Friday’s Come Craft With Me LIVE stream, and realised that I never did share last week’s CCWM project on my blog! What a silly sausage I am!

I had such a blast on last weeks show – firstly – our audio worked a dream! YIPPPPEEEEE!! WOOOHOOO! I cannot tell you how happy that made me (and Craig, even more so!). Also last week was the first CCWM since we launched Heffy Doodle stamps! And after a fantastic start to our kickstarter campaign, I was kinda on cloud nine!

When I was designing these stamps I really wanted to bring you guys a new stamp brand that you (AND I) could use alongside some of our other favourite brands. So in this CCWM show, I used both Heffy Doodle and Lawn Fawn products to demonstrate how beautiful they go together.

We had a little vote – should these critters be picnic-ing at the beach or in the forest? This week Craig did some magic and made the comments appear on the playback screen, which means that everyone who doesn’t get a chance to watch it live will still be able to keep track of the conversation and interactions! Hope you like that new feature – we’ve had great feedback so far!

And as you can guess  – the beach won!

For this card, I used the simple stitched border dies, the stitched cloud backdrop & the ocean hillside pop up die (all from Lawn Fawn) to create this beach scene. I added some distress ink to create the beach.

I used the Blah Bunny dies from Honey Bee Stamps to create my own plaid picnic blanket. I am so thrilled with how this turned out! Super cute!

I used a selection of stamps from my stash to create the dashed, dotted and solid lines.

I added a croc and a bear from Heffy Doodle stamps, along with some accessories such as the cake, the wine glass and wine bottle, and for the beach accessories I used some Lawn Fawn stamps in my stash.

I used Critters of the sea as well as Life is Good from Lawn Fawn – and I love how these stamps work so well with one another.

I struggled for a while in regards to a greeting – but it all paid off in the end! I love this message  – it is from a super old stamp set called Everyday sayings from Hero Arts. oh… and the sun is from the Sunday Strolls set from Mama Elephant. I am glad i added it in the end!

If you missed the LIVE stream, don’t worry – you can watch the video playback above. It is fun to put on in the background when you get crafty!

There is another Come Craft With Me coming up this week. Every Friday, at 9 pm BST / 4 pm EST, you can find me over at the Hungry Heffy YouTube channel.

Here is a sneaky peek of this weeks card – it will be a teacher thank you card, and once again I am mixing and matching different stamp brands together to create an extra fun card! Click the photo to go to the event  and you can then tell YouTube if you want to be notified when the show goes live. <3

Sending big crafty hugs
