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!

Hello crafty friends,

—-WIN —-
Leave comments on the hop stops to be in with a chance to win a Chibitronics $30 starter kit or a $30 gift certificate from Winnie and Walter. Comments close at 11:59 PM CST next Tuesday, May 29th.

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!

Hello everyone,

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!

Oh, and don’t forget to join in the Heffy Doodle challenge!

What??? you don’t know about it! well you will definitely want to check it out as you can win the whole new release worth $300! Check out the details here.

There’s still time to get crafty and enter! I will see you guys at the next LIVE #comecraftwithme stream at http://youtube.com/hungryheffy

Happy crafting!
