Thank you to everyone who joined me for tonights CCWM LIVE stream. I started a little early today because we had friends over to play some boardgames. I’m super pleased that i managed to get this SUPER SPECIAL card done – as it is for our daughter Piper who turns 7 this week. Let’s take a look!
So in case you aren’t familiar with my LIVE streams, lets recap. On a Friday night, at 9pm GMT, i turn on my camera and get crafty. I would love you to join in! It’s so wonderful interacting with everyone and answering questions as I go. I also love it when the viewers help me make decisions along the way.
Sometimes, like this Friday 16th march, normal service is slightly interrupted. It’s Piper’s Birthday so I will be supervising FOUR seven year old girls for their first big sleepover! AIE! But when this happens, I try to do another stream mid week – so hit that notification button over on my YouTube Channel —-> Hungry Heffy You Tube channel! That way you will be told when I do a surprise sesh! 🙂
If you want to watch the full unedited version, scroll below, but please note – it is in real time.
Let’s get this party started! First, I added some inked areas on my card using three distress ink colours – Cracked Pistachio, Worn Lipstick and Shaded Lilac, then spritzed with some water droplets.
The stamps are from mama elephant – the party animals set. I love these guys! So cute! I went for some more pastel colours with my copics.
For these, i blended everything out to white – this helps keep everything looking nice and light. When I knew where i wanted my critters to go, I picked my sentiment. I stamped it using my MISTI and used Rangers Liquid Platinum embossing powder.
For the speech bubble i used Heffy Doodle’s Whatcha Saying stamp and set with Lawn Fawns minty fresh ink. It matches the cracked pistachio colour up top. I added some extra stamped images to the background using Lawn Fawn holiday party animal set (for the music notes) and then the Lawn Fawn party animal set. Ohh its a veritable party over here!
On the inside, I wanted to add Piper’s name. It’s an unusual name over here so she never finds anything with her name on it. I used the Heffy Doodle Jet Alphabetters to stamp the letters, then added drops with my copic markers.
I thought i would add a little chickie on the inside with a balloon, and dug out some glitter stickers to add the number 7 to it. super cute huh!?
