Welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle. As a colouring addict, I am in love with the new Pencil Heart die. This time I combined it with some other dies and my favourite colours of cardstocks. Let me guide you through and share some tricks.
First I die cut the Pencil Heart die from various cardstocks: I love aqua, teal and purple together so I used some scraps from my stash. I also die cut it once from cream cardstock and collected all little pieces in a tray.
Then I die cut the background pencil die 3 times from white cardstock and adhered them together. It gives instant dimension without using 3D adhesives. I love the way it looks from the sides too and it is less fragile this way if you want to mail the card.
I adhered the coloured pencils to the white background, it is like playing puzzles. I enjoyed the process and if you use liquid glue like Glubert it is a breeze. For the background I die cut the Quilted Heart Background die from white cardsock and backed it with an aqua one. I adhered the focal panel in the middle.
For the sentiment I die cut the word Colour (included in the Pencil Heart die set) from silver sparkle cardstock and white heat embossed the rest of the sentiment from the Pandtastic Painters stamp set on thin black cardstock strips. I glued them to the middle of the pencil heart and my card is all finished.
I hope you enjoyed today’s Perfect Combo and will check back later for more inspiration. If you like my cards, please make sure to follow me on Instagram where I also share my happy creations! Thank you!
I am thrilled to share with you my projects in the coming days for the new release of Heffy Doodle! There is a ton of cuteness coming and I am happy to tease you further with my inspiration.
With every pre-order you can get a freebie stamp, and if your order is above 45GBP you will receive even the coordinating dies! Wohoo!
I used the Just a note stamp/die set for my card today. I stamped and coloured the notebook an pen with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies.
I die cut a stitched rectangle from Bristol Smooth cardstock and used the new Messy Desk stencil to create a fun splashy background: I blended Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide inks with a blending brush. I popped up the die cut images in the middle using 3D foam tape.
I love die cut setiments and could not help adding a “Hello” die cut above the image. It adds so much to this clean & simple design.
I gave the stitched panel a grey mat and used a bit of glossy accents on the pen and my card is all finished!
I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration with the new release. Don’t forget: pre-orders starts on 26/04!
We are halfway through the April release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs, but we still have loads of cute stamps to show you. Today we are introducing Puppy friends and its coordinating dies. I have a clean and simple slimline design for you to showcase these little pups.
All new products will be available on Friday, 23rd April, 2021.
I stamped and coloured all the images with Copic markers and cut them all out with their coordinating dies.
Then on a slimline white card front (3,75*8,5 inches) I used the Slimline Masking Circle stencil to add colourful spots. I wanted to make it more playful so I shifted the stencil along the engraved gridlines and made 2 of the circles to the right and one to the left. I used Spiced Marmelade and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide inks. I made each circle one by one, but thanks to the gridlines on the stencil it was super easy. Before removing the stencil I added water and diluted black ink splatters each time.
When the background was dry I stamped a sentiment in each circle with black ink and popped up the dogs with 3D foam squares.
I cut a tiny bit off the panel on each side and matted it with dark brown cardstock to make the images pop even more. Of course I could not leave it without finishing touches: I added black glaze pen on the eyes, glossy accents on the noses and covered the collar and scarf with clear shimmer.

I have a simple but very Springy card for you today, made for the Lawn Fawnatics Card Swap. As my recipient should have the card already, I thought I show you how I made it.
I stamped and coloured the images from the Some bunny sets using Copic markers and cut everything out with the coordinating dies. I stamped faces on some of the flowers, which I planned to put in the first raw.
To assemble the scene I needed a small Stitched Rectangle from white cardstock. I cut another one from Cilantro cardstock and used the Meadow border die to cut the grass out of it. I put the scene together using 3D foam squares under the bunnies.
While I was at die cutting, I cut the Hello die 3 times from Guava cardstock and adhered them on top of each other. I stamped a sentiment under the die cut and matted the little scene with Sunflower cardtsock. For the background I used a pretty patterned paper from the Spring Fling Petite Paper Pad.
I finished the card with clear shimmer and glossy accents on the flower centres. Simple but cute, isn’t it? It made me happy to put it together.
I hope you enjoyed today’s Lawn Fawn inspiration and will pop in tomorrow for another fun Spring card.
It is so late here in Hungary but I needed a break from playing board games and lego. I miss crafting but when I feel my mojo is lost, I enjoy simply die cutting. Simon Says Stamp has the most gorgeous dies and I was playing with a couple of snowflakes, a pretty filigree cup and a lovely sentiment. Let me guide you through the process.
First I die cut the SSS Filigree Teacup die from heavy weight white cardstock and backed it with green glitter cardstock. As it does not cut around the cup shape, I used my scissors to cut it out.
Then I die cut the Warm Hugs sentiment from green cardstock 3 times and layered them on top of each other. The shadow die I cut from white cardstock. While I was at die cutting I also made 2 snowflakes with the Daphne snowflakes die using pearlescent white cardstock from my stash.
Welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle. Christmas is so close and I am sure most of you are busy with wrapping presents and planning the menu. It may turn out that you need a tag or a little card still, and today’s design is perfect for both: quick and easy and looks cute. Let me show you.
First I stamped and coloured one of the angels from My Little Angel. I went with purples this time but it would look pretty in any colour. I used the coordinating dies to cut her out.
Then I created my card base: I die cut 3 stars with the largest Stitched Stars die: 2 from heavy weight white cardstock and one from a pretty patterned paper (Whimsy Stamps Blurry Flurries). On one of the stars I die cut a window with a Fancy Nancy Frames die. I adhered the patterned paper star under the one with the window and created a fold line half an inch from the top on the other white star. I added glue to that little flap and adhered it to the front panel. In this way I have my own star shaped card base. So easy and eye-catching.
The sentiment is from Holiday Sentiment Duos, heat embossed in silver on a purple cardstock strip. Before adhering the sentiment and popping up the angel with thick 3D foam strip, I went over the edges of the star and the window cutline too with Stardust Stickles. It gives a festive look and takes this simple design to another level. I used the same glue on the glory too. A touch of clear shimmer on the wings finished it off.
TIP: If you want to create a tag, just punch a hole on the top and use sparkling twine. You can also turn this design into a shaker card if you adhere the patterned paper star with foam strips. That would look awesome too.
I hope you enjoyed today’s Perfect Combo and will check back later for more inspiration. If you like my cards, please make sure to follow me on Instagram where I share my happy creations! Thank you!
While I was at die cutting I cut some pine trees from olive green cardstock and the tree trunks from dark brown using the Forest Builder die set. I used my mini die cut machine for this, it is so much easier and faster when I am cutting plenty of small parts. I love it!
I assembled the tags using liquid glue. For the sentiment I used the Classic Sentiments stamp set and stamped Merry Christmas with red ink on white cardstock. I cut it down to a very thin strip and adhered them under the trees.
To bring these tags to another level I adorned them with Gold and Scarlet Red Crystals from Studio Katia and added green or red twine to them. Aren’t they lovely?
I hope you enjoyed today’s tag inspiration and will pop in again soon for more holiday fun!
I am so happy that I could make a card for the MFT Card Design Superstar Contest this year too, I love challenges like this. It is a yearly contest and even though the categories are the same as last year, I left it to the last moment to decide which card I will enroll – yeah, I made three 🙂
I started with die cutting heavy weight white cardstock with a Blueprints 22 Die-namics die and using a blending brush and a very light hand I added Salty Ocean Distress ink ever so lightly in a circle frame shape.
When the ink dried I stamped the Joy Wreath stamp with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with a Textured White embossing powder (Lawn Fawn). I also added some Finetec gold paint splatters for more texture.
Then I stamped and coloured the deer and the candy cane from the Reindeer Games stamp set using my Copic markers and cut them out with their coordinating dies.
The sentiment I white heat embossed on a dark red banner. I adhered the wreath panel on a kraft cardbase and popped up the images and sentiment with 3D foam squares. I finished the design with glossy accents on the candy cane and Rudolph’s red nose, I emphasized hs eyes with a black glaze pen and scattered a few gold crystals (Studio Katia) on the wreath.
I wish you enjoyed this clean design, a bit different from what I usually make, but it was so fun to step out of my comfort zone! Visit me later for my second card for the contest!
It is my second post for today as I was longing to share with you this clean and simple card I made with the Lil’ Lighthouse stamps and dies from Heffy Doodle.
If you place a pre-order at the Heffy Doodle store, you get this cute stamp as a freebie. If your order is above Ł45, then you get the coordinating die too. Isn’t it wonderful? Please note that this stamp/die is only an incentive and will NOT BE SOLD in the shop!
For my project I stamped and coloured the lighthouse using Copic markers and cut it out with the coordinating die.
On a piece of white cardstock I used the … stencil and quickly blended some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink making it lighter in the middle of the circle. I added a tiny bit of Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide on the bottom. Before popping up the lighthouse with 3D foam squares, I used that extra die in the coordinating die set to add the little holes for the light. I backed the panel with gold glitter cardstock, it looks like light in real life!
I die cut the Thinking of you from white cardstock 3 times and layered them on top of each other.
I cut the shadow from black cardstock. Before adhering it to the card, I randomly applied the remaining blue ink from my blending brush over the sentiment.
I finished the card with a bit of glossy accents on the darker grey parts of the lighthouse. I love how this card is perfect for guys too!
I hope you enjoyed this extra project for Release week. Pre-orders are open and the whole new release will go live on 3rd July. We will have a celebration on that day, so look out for more info on social media!
It is Day 3 of the July Release reveals at Heffy Doodle, for all the information and product close-ups, please visit the Heffy Doodle blog. Pre-orders open on 24/06 and the whole new release will be available on 03/07! There is a gorgeous freebie with every pre-order!
I started with stamping the cute unicorns, the rainbows and the clouds with black ink onto Copic friendly white cardstock. I used aqua, blue and purple shades to colour their hair and used the same colours for the rainbows too.
I love to restrict my colour palette to a few colours only so I can give my whole scene a united look. I die cut everything with the coordinating dies.
I wanted to keep the card simple, but to have a lot of dimension I die cut the different slimline dies from different coloured cardstock. I also used the scalloped slimline die for a final mat. I created my own cardbase from dark grey cardstock – I cut an 8,5*7 inches piece and scored it in the middle.
I stamped a sentiment with purple ink directly on the white stitched slimline rectangle and popped up the unicorns with 3D foam squares. The clouds and rainbows I adhered flat behind them.
As a finishing touch I added some tiny sequins from Studio Katia, covered the rainbows with a clear shimmer pen and used glossy accents on the horns.
I love how clean and simple it is yet so super cute! It would make anyone smile!
I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and will pop in tomorrow again for the last day of the July reveals.
