Hey guys,

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!?

If you want to watch the full unedited video – see below, and i hope you will join me for a Come Craft With Me LIVE craft stream in the future!

See you then! Happy Crafting!

Hello crafty friends,

Thanks for joining us on this Blog Hop collaboration between Heffy Doodle and My Sweet Petunia. I remember working in a craft shop many moons ago, and teaching people all about stamping. At that time, there was no choice but to practice, PRACTICE, PRACTICE in order to get great impressions. But lucky for us, we now have the MISTI – and I really do think that it is the Most Incredible Stamping Tool Invented!

If you are hopping along, you will have come from Giovana SmithScroll down to find out the next person on the hop, but first, let’s talk about prizes!

Two lucky commenters from the hop to win one of two prizes: a $50 shopping spree at www.mysweetpetunia.com and a 25 pound shopping spree at Heffydoodle.com – You must leave your comments no later than Sunday, March 4th, at 11:59 PM Central time and winners will be announced on Tuesday March 6th, on the Heffy Doodle and My Sweet Petunia blogs.

Today I have a project showcasing one of the ways that I use my MISTI tool when I am creating. It really does give you more flexibility, and not just with stamping. Today’s video shows how I used the MISTI when using embossing paste in different colours!

Here’s the VIDEO TUTORIAL

and for those who just want to see the photos, here’s a peek at my finished card!

Hello everyone,

It’s a special day today, because us Chibitronics gang are teaming up with the amazingly talented individuals over at MFT Stamps for a super awesome COLLABORATION!

Over the course of today and tomorrow (15th & 16th Feb), please head over to the chibitronics and MFT stamps blogs to start the hop and see all the inspiration.

If you hop along, please remember to leave a like and a comment – and then you can be in with a chance to win a Chibitronics starter kit or a $50 voucher to the MFT stamps store! What are you waiting for!?

So let’s talk about my project. If you are familiar with my work, you will probably know that I louuuurve an interactive card. BUT sometimes I get these crazy ideas in my head and I want to push it to the LIMIT! I get totally overexcited, and I have a mindset of ‘MAKE IT WORK!’.

A few months ago, I made a slider pop up card, and I thought it would be awesome if I could find a way to incorporate the slider element into a Chibitronics circuit. And this was the perfect occasion to try.

Scroll down to watch the video tutorial on how I made this card, which features the Blueprint sketch 28 dies, Otterly love you stamps and the Bitty Bears stamps, all from MFT stamps. I also used a small ‘Pull Here’ stamp from Heffy Doodle Stamps’ Interactively Yours stamp set.

At first glance, this card looks clean and simple – what a cute little otter, huh? The background I made using Distress Oxide inks and I spritzed a stencil with some water (with a little perfect pearls powder mixed in), then laid my inked background on top. This results in this beautiful transference of the stencil design. At the top, can you see the little ‘pull here’ sentiment?

When you slide up the card, it reveals BIG SURPRISES! Not only do you see the ‘You have my heart’ sentiment on the pull tab (from the Bitty Bears stamp set), and of course you get to see the ‘I’m otterly in love with you’ sentiment on the revealed section…. but the little otter has popped up AND the heart in his hands is GLOWING PINK!

Like I said, the circuit is indeed one of the more advanced circuits – but it just goes to prove that there are lots of possibilities with these fun little light stickers. Don’t let it scare you though, there’s loads of amazing projects using a simple circuit. Search my blog for Chibitronics to find more if you want to take a look.

Here’s a little peak from the side. I am in love with this guy. My daughter Piper (6yo) has been playing with him all day!

Don’t forget to watch the video to see how it was made, and to be in with chances to win a prize, leave a comment below.

Here are the links that take you to the other blogs in this hop for today. There are more fantastic projects on the line up for tomorrow, 16th Feb.
