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!

CCWM – Heffy Doodle Cards

Hello crafty friends

So it appears that i have completely neglected to update my blog with my Come Craft With Me sessions over the last few weeks. For those of you who subscribe to my blog – please excuse the series of catch up posts that are about to hit your inbox! LOL

First up, this CCWM video where I was showcasing the June release from Heffy Doodle.

First up I have this sweet card featuring the manta ray from the Oceans of Love stamp set. I have created a fun background using the Stitched Bubble Background die, and then masked areas with some acetate as I blended some ink to create rainbow rays.

Of course, I reached for the stitched strips of ease to cut out the sweet sentiment and then created my own action wobbler with acetate so the manta can wibble wobble the day away.

A simple but beautiful card next featuring the Wingman stamps and dies. These cute birdies are sweet and cheeky and are perfect for everyone. I create a simple ink blended background and cut a semi circle channel to create a slider card.

I added a simple cloudy border to the bottom with the CAS greeting – Happy Birdday! Card number 3 is a bit more involved as I wanted to include a Chibitronics light to my card. I used the sweet birthday cake from the Party Palooza set, which has an optional candle that you can add to the cake.

I used a W&W stencil to create the teal striped background and then added my ‘Happy Cake Day To You’ sentiment to a narrower panel with I trimmed with coloured card die cut with some scalloped border dies. I think it looks so sweet. I used my Interactively Yours stamp set to create the little ‘push here’ heart button on the top.

This time, it’s time to get messy. I took the Big Bold Words sentiment set and inked this up in different colours to get a rainbow effect. The MISTI makes this incredibly easy peasy to do. I trimmed my sentiment using a speech bubble die from paper smooches, and then worked on my background using watercolour paints.

I used my gansai tambi watercolour paints and dribbled paint down a piece of card to get this beautiful drip effect. I love that it looks so painterly.

Here is the full video if you feel like watching the play back. It’s a real time video so why not pop it on while getting crafty yourself!?

Happy Crafting my dears!


Well, well, well. Can you even believe it? A YEAR!!?

If you have come here from Amy Rysavy‘s blog, then you have made it to the last stop on our Heffy Doodle Birthday Blog hop! WOOHOO! For everyone else, you might want to head on over to the Heffy Doodle blog to start this hop, as it is jam packed full of amazing projects!

So, in case you don’t know, my name is Lesley Oman and I am the founder and creator of Heffy Doodle. For many years my hubby told me to create my own range of stamps, and last year I finally decided it was time to appease him. 😀 I drew some designs and started planning a Kickstarter campaign. It was exactly 1 year ago today that I shared my big secret plans with the world! I cannot believe how time has flown by, and I still marvel at the wonderful support I receive from customers, friends, family and this magnificent industry! I would like to say a massive thank you to each and every one of you for the part you have played in the development of my dreams. …. Enough sappiness, because its time to celebrate!


Two lucky winners will receive a £50 gift voucher to the Heffy Doodle store. Leave a comment before noon on 26th June to qualify. The winners will be announced on the Heffy Doodle blog on June 24th.

Now, let’s take a look at my project!

Birthdays are cause for celebrations and BIG PARTIES, so i wanted my card to be exactly the same. I actually created the inside first, but before we go there, here is the outside. The background was created using the Heffy Doodle Stitched Bubble Background die and I cut the frame into it using the Lucky Clover Frames set. The bear is from the Unbearable Without You stamp set, balloons from the Party Palooza set, and I stamped a greeting from the new Everyday Sentiment Duos. I even used the NEW Heffy Memo tape to mask the stamp so i could get two colours. So tell me, do you think this lil bear looks pleasantly surprised?

Here’s why…

All his sweet friends have thrown him a beach birthday party! WOO! Of course i had to do it at the beach, because then i could include some of the new ocean critters from Oceans of Love and the turtle from the Shellabrate exclusive freebie ( you get it for free when you spend £35 in the Heffy Doodle store).

For the sky, i embossed the Swirly Cloud dies, and used distress inks and oxides for the sea and beachy mounds. Then it was stamp, colour and die cut  for all my cute critters. I have used Happy Snappy Crocs, Honey Bunny Boo, Yappy Happy Mail, Oceans of Love, Unbearable Without you, Party Palooza and wingman (and the Shellabrate exclusive). For the number 1 on the cake, i just drew this freehand.

I kinda wish i was at this party! Don’t you!
