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.

Woo Hoo! It’s a HEFFY DOODLE blog hop day! YAY! If you are following along on the hop, you will have arrived from the awesomely talented Tallie .

But to hippity-hop right back to the start of the hop, you will want to make your way back to the HEFFY DOODLE BLOG. Especially if you want to be in with a chance to win! More details on that in a bit! First… my project!

For today’s project I have made a fun spinner card for my daughter Piper. In the Elfish Antics stamp set, there is a fun little machine to test whether you have been naughty or nice – just like the movie Arthur Christmas! I thought it would be cool to incorporate a spinner into this machine, so it changed colour! I also added a SPIN ME sentiment from the Heffy Doodle Interactively Yours stamp set – this set is perfect for interactive card makers.

In the video I also show you how I used some strips of acetate to create my own mask effect. I really wanted to have a pin stripe look to the background, but didn’t have the perfect stencil in my stash – but I wasn’t going to let that stop me! Once I had the acetate strips in place, I sprayed the project with perfect pearls mixed in water to give a pretty pearlescent sheen to my background.

For the sentiment, I used some of the words from the Elfing Christmas Words stamp set, and stamped this in two different colours for a more whimsical feel. I also added my daughter’s name using the Jet Alphabetters stamp set. They are great for making your own words or adding names to your projects.

Now over to the fun bit… you can be in with a chance to win some Heffy Doodle goodies!

How to Win? Leave a comment on each of the blog posts along the hop. A random winner will be selected for a $25 gift certificate for the Heffy Doodle store + free shipping.

Thank you to everyone who joined me for Friday night’s CCWM show. I swear I am getting quicker! Three cards in about 2.5hours – well that’s quicker than normal!

If you are new here, let me tell you about Come Craft With Me. Every Friday, I (virtually) open  the doors of my craft room, and invite you all to watch onward as I get crafty. It’s a LIVE stream, hosted on my YouTube channel, where I interact with viewers, create a few projects and have a good old giggle. Please subscribe to my YouTube and turn on your notifications so you never miss a show.

Let’s take a look at what I made! Not one, not two but THREE cards! First off, I was playing with my Picket Fence distress ink on kraft cardstock to make this fun background.

It’s a simple design, but I love how it turned out. The owl is from MFTstamps Forest Friends and the tree is from Mama Elephant Sunday Strolls stamp set. I also stamped the owl onto white card and coloured him in with some light coloured copic markers. The branch is from an older Hero Arts set – I think it was the perfect addition.

I grabbed my googly eyes – always a source of contention in my experience – but pretty much all the viewers seemed on board with adding a little whimsy to this cute critter. BUT big eyes, or little eyes!? That was the question. In the end, I outsourced my decision making to a viewer – and Nancy picked the larger eyes – Good choice, crafty friend!

Next up I wanted to use the FREE DIGITAL STAMP that Heffy Doodle was offering on their blog to celebrate World Card Making Day.  We had some issues here, as I first tried to use my zig clean color real brush markers, but I am still such a noob with these – I had to get Craig to print another version for me – but it all worked out in the end!

I added a little ink blending to this card – spun sugar, picked raspberry & festive berries – and then used the Wishing and Sending stamp set from SSS. The perfect little greeting for this card!

By the way, if you make a project with the Heffy Doodle FREE DIGI STAMP, remember to use the tag HEFFYDOODLEWCMD when you share your projects – you would win a stamp and die set! More details over on the Heffy Doodle blog.

For my third card, i wanted to get smoochy! INK SMOOCHING of course! I was inspired by the letter box in the digi stamp to use these envelope stamps to create a resist background on this card. I used a paper smooches thanks die with some pink craft foam for a nice textured greeting.

Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to join us next Friday if you are free. Simply pop over to https://youtube.com/hungryheffy and subscribe to my channel – you may need to edit your notifications settings if you want to get a pop up when the show goes live!

Happy crafting my friends!
