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!

Hello Crafty friends!

Happy Monday! Woo! Easter holidays are over, and miss Pi is back at school, which means I can actually get some work done today- woohoo! 🙂 It’s been lovely having her round the house, but let’s just say i am also glad to be able to clean the house without turning round to a mess again! LOL

Right,… you are not here to talk about housework – let’s take a look at my card for today! 🙂

I have made a shaker card for today, made with some images that I pre-stamped and pre-coloured (so my apologises that the colouring is not on the video). I like to bring my copics to the coffee shop to keep me amused, and these lil’ guys certainly did keep me amused.

My original idea was to have a scene with Mumma and Papa snail saying cheerio to their little guy as he goes off on an adventure. Aren’t these guys so cute!? They are from Lawn Fawn Gleeful Gardens set, and I also used Lawn Fawn stiched cluod backdrop along with the grassy hillside pop up die.

For my shaky bits, i used silver star sequins, clear seed beads and the Cottage Garden mix from Lucy’s little things. I also added some cute flowers from the MFT Stiched flower dynamics.

For the sentiment, i used a set called Up and Away from Mama Elephant – i thought this message was cute, and i love the combo of the two fonts. First I cut out a banner shaped aperture so that i had a smooth surface to stamp on.

There you go!

Scroll below to see the full video, or you can watch on YouTube. I will be back on Friday for this weeks Come Craft With Me LIVE crafting video. We have installed some new software and I am excited to try it out some more.

Happy Crafting!

Hip Hip Hooray! Nothing says a PAR-TAY like a shaker card! 😀 (…errr….just me?) Last weekend we were invited to a friends house for a celebratory gathering as her daughter Felicity turned sweet sixteen! Every time we go to Elizabeths house, I look forward to my Felicity hug and hearing about the latest school shenanigans and what she is now reading. She is one of those awesome teenagers that seemed to have skipped the whole ‘moody and moping around’ phase. I hope I get one of those when Piper gets to that age. Only another 9 years before i have to worry about a sweet sixteen for Pi… it sounds like ages away, but i am still in shock that Piper is now SEVEN!! Geez! How did that happen…..anyway…. back to the card!

Today’s shaker needed to be cute and fun – and i wanted to include books! So I reached for the Mama Elephant Page Huggers set, and used the bear and the books. While i was pulling that out, i grabbed the Mama Elephant Lunar Animals set also for the mouse and bunny. For accessories, I used some images from the Lawn Fawn Party Animals set. The balloons and big hat are from the Beary Special Birthday set from MFT.

I used floss for balloon strings to add some texture on my card and i used the Hooray honey cuts from Honey Bee Stamps. And just look at those shaky bits!! So many pretty beads, sequins and I also used some small metal discs from Cheery Lynn designs. When the light hits them just right the give a nice metallic shine!

Speaking of shaky bits, i also realised that i managed to trap a hair inside the card. HAHA! Well, too late now! I guess Felicity has a means to clone me now… although I’m pretty sure the world isn’t ready for another Heffy!

To finish up, I used the Interactively Yours set from Heffy Doodle to stamp the ‘shake me’ sentiment at the bottom. Perfect!

Happy Birthday Flick! <3
