BLOG HOP

Hello everyone,

Its World Card Making Day, and I have two projects to share today – a collaboration between Chibitronics and Honey Bee Stamps, and also a project made using a free digital stamp from Heffy Doodle. Click here to visit the other project.

Let’s have a look at the collaboration project! I do love a good ole collab, and we are part of a blog hop with a chance to WIN! See below for more details!

For this project, I have used the Busy Bees stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps, and made a super simple circuit. I thought it would be fun to put the LED in the bee’s rear end! LOL

I also added a greeting to this card using the Sending You sentiments stamp set also from Honey Bee stamps. I added it to a die cut fishtail banner which I had in my stash.

You can almost see the cloudy skies in this photo above! I love doing ink blending with brushes  – it gives such a soft, subtle look, even though it’s hard to make it show up on camera. I used SSS dye ink and some Lawn Fawn dye ink for the brush blending, and my copics to colour the bee and flower.

In the video, I walk you through how to make the simple circuit. Seriously! It’s easy peasy!  But of course I had to add a little PUSH HERE image to the bottom so the recipient knows to press on the heart. The PUSH HERE is from the Heffy Doodle Interactively Yours stamp set and the heart is an image from the Honey Bee Stamps Busy Bees set. What a perfect pair!

CCWM – Autumn has arrived!

Hey guys,

Friday’s CCWM LIVE stream was a hoot! And I well and truly got my Autumnal vibes on the go! I made two cards – one of which incorporates the Chibitronics LEDS.

To start, I made this sweet Fall card – with lots of distress ink blending in the background. I die cut some leaf shapes onto the top panel using some coordinating dies, so that it peeked through the the layer underneath. I often come back to this fun technique – i like the contrast between the white top layer and the rich tones underneath.

For the main image, I decided to use the deer from the Forest Friends set from MFT stamps, along with one of the tree images. They are super cute! I added some purple tones behind him, although its hard to see when the stamped images are stuck on top. I used my copics to colour them in.

For my greeting, I used the same purple distress inks to colour some white card and then die cut this using a HAPPY die. To complete the greeting, I white heat embossed a partial sentiment from a clearly besotted stamp set on top of an orange ink blended background.

TA-DA! And a little sprinkle of sequins to finish!

For the next card, I asked the viewers what they wanted to see, and someone suggested a light up pumpkin! Even though I LOVE pumpkins, and I love pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin pies — I have very few pumpkin stamps! Can you believe it! BUT, I am never one to shy away from the challenge!

Here’s the finished card!What a cutie, huh?! I used a pierced circle die from Studio Katia to make the circular areas of my pumpkin, and coloured these with some distress inks. I also dug out a die that came free with a magazine which had a flourish – so I used this for some greenery around my pumpkin.

The background looks simple – I wanted a spooky effect, so i added colours with distress inks and then covered it with chipped sapphire and black soot – this is the same way that i create a galaxy effect background, except i didn’t add specks of white for stars this time.

The real magic is of course the light up LED! I used orange lights from the tropics LED set, and put the battery at the top right corner of my card.

I added a greeting using Lawn Fawn’s Milo’s ABCs and also the Monster Mash stamp set – and white heat embossed on top of my black background. I also wanted a small image where the battery lies- and this little spider was perfect. He is a wooden stamp that I have had in my stash for several years – but i think he is super cute!

Thanks for stopping by, and this Friday there will be another LIVE crafting video over on my YouTube. Hope to see you there!

CCWM – too soon for Christmas?

Hey guys!

The answer was yes! LOL

Well, at least for some of us! Thank you to those who joined me on Friday night for my Come Craft With Me LIVE stream over on my YouTube channel. I wasn’t feeling too great on Friday, and you guys al cheered me up. That, and a little craft therapy!

At the start of the stream, I couldn’t quite bring myself to make a Christmas card…but by the end I was coerced into embracing the upcoming festive season by making a Heffy Christmas card!

You can see the full video of the LIVE stream by watching the video above, or on my Hungry Heffy you tube channel. NOTE  – it is a live unedited stream, and not a short cardmaking video tutorial. Feel free to skim through it, or put it on in the background whilst you are doing something else. 😀

First up was this guy! I masked the background using some masking paper cut with a spellbinders die, and used my dye ink pads to with a blending tol to create a soft ink blended background. I am IN LOVE with it!

I splattered the inky background with some water using a paintbrush, and then splattered it (and my monitor it would seem) with some white watercolour paint.

The trees are from Lawn Fawn’s Loveable Legends stamp set and the cute beastie is from the Yeti Set Go set, also from Lawn Fawn. This set also contains the ‘need a hug sentiment’.

I used a die from the Lawn Fawn Rooting For You set to cut a speech bubble kinda shape (its actually a turnip!!) and then stamped a heart onto it using my Heffy Doodle Unbearable Without You set (SSS | AZ).

Next stop… a shaker card for a 18 year old boy.

I used the same two dye inks to blend an ombre background, and then die cut the numbers, inlaid them, and embossed the happy birthday greeting. Yes – i did accidentally put my finger onto the hot embossed area, leaving a nice layer of epithelial on there! Fun times!

For inside the shaker, I added some seed beads, a white sequin mix, and some metal shaker elements from Cheery Lynn. They say AWESOME! I think the metal gives this card are more masculine feel! Plus, the elements are pretty cool!

The bear is from the Lawn Fawn party animal set and I coloured him in with my copics. I used a craft knife to cut slits in his paws so he could hold the cake a bit better. Then I added some presents from the Lawn Fawn Toboggan Together set.

For my last card, I crumbled under peer pressure to make a Christmas card! LOL. The request was to make a Heffy Christmas card using Heffy Doodle stamps – and how could i refuse?

I created an ink blended background with my distress inks and used my Lawn Fawn landscape dies to build up a scene – adding a little ink to bring in some colour. The Merry Christmas is also from the Toboggan Together set, and I love the way the white heat embossing looks against the blended background. (This time i did not poke it!)

For the main event, I chose two elephants from the Heffy Doodle Elephant of Surprise stamp set, and added some santa hats, and snowballs from some other Lawn Fawn sets. I love how they coordinate well together!

I added some Marvy snow marker to the white sections of the hats and heated it up with my embossing tool to make it poofy!

There we go! Three cards! BA-DA-BOOM!

Don’t forget that I do a LIVE crafting stream every friday – I would love for you to join me! Hop on over to my Youtube channel and subscribe. Perhaps turn on notifications – that way you can know when I am live. <3

Happy Crafting!
