Welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle.
Halloween is just a few days away and I thought I would share with you a simple design which is perfect for last minute crafting. I used Heffy Doodle stamps, dies and some of the newly released Craft Room Essentials. Let’s get started!
I used the Star Swirl stencil on a light purple cardstock with Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink. Then I rotated the stencil, masked off the middle star with Heffy Memo tape and applied Iridescent Glitz Glitter gel from Thermoweb with a spatula. I removed the stencil, washed it right away and set the panel aside to dry.
Meanwhile I stamped and coloured a few images from different Heffy Doodle stamp sets to create my own Frankenstein: the crocodile from Happy Snappy Crocs, the treat bag from Party Palooza, the screw from Bots of Love and finally a piece of grass from Big Bug Hugs. I used my Copic markers to colour them and cut everything out with their coordinating dies. This was the first time for me to try the new mini Heffy Doodle die cutting machine and it was so fun! It cuts perfectly and much easier to handle than my usual big die cutting machine when I am cutting small images.
While I was at die cutting I also cut the sentiment letters using the Stitched Alphabetters die set and black sparkle cardstock.
When the background was dry I cut it down a little and matted it with a black stitched rectangle. I adhered the letters a bit wonky and used the new 3D foam tape to pop up my Frankenstein costumed crocodile. Isn’t he a happy creature?
As a finishing touch I used a little glossy accents on the screw and the treat bag and my card was finished.
This card is also part of the ‘Till Death Do Us Craft collaboration. It is a month long event with some other crafty girls to share Halloween inspiration with you. If you want to see our projects, just use the #tilldeathdouscraft tag to search on social media.
I hope I made you smile with this cute card and inspired you. If you like my cards, please make sure to follow me on Instagram where I share my happy creations! Thank you!
