Hello Friend – Lawn Fawn

Hello Everyone,

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.

See you,


Warm Hugs – Simon Says Stamp

Hello Dears,

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.

For the background I used a simple stitched rectangle which I cut from Fog cardstock, I love how it balances the cool tone of the green I chose.

I assembled the card using 3D foam squares behind the cup to make it pop and scattered a few white pearls all around. Such an easy design but still so pretty. I hope you like it!

I am uploading this to the Coffee Loving Papercrafters International Tea Day Challenge and also to SSS Wednesday Challenge Sparkle and Shine.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project and you will try to make a fully die cut card too.

See you soon,


Perfect Combos – Magical holidays

Hello Everyone,

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!

See you soon,


25 Days of Christmas Tags – Heffy Doodle

Hello Everyone,

I am back with a fun set of tags as part of Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event. It is a fun initiative to share with you tag ideas throughout a whole month, focusing on a specific brand each day.

Today is all about Heffy Doodle and I created some classic looking ones, perfect for last minute crafting too.

For the base I used the new Essentials Mini die set which is available individually or part of the Heffy Doodle Die cutting Machine Bundle too and the Heffy Doodle shop. I die cut the cute little tag die from kraft cardstock, 10 times so I could have a bunch of tags at once.

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!

See you,


MFT Card Design Superstar Contest – Clean & Simple

Hello Everyone,

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 πŸ™‚

So my choice for the Clean and Simple Genius category is this card:

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!

See you,


Heffy Doodle July Release – pre-order freebie

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is JULY2020release_BANNER.jpg

Hello Everyone,

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!

See you soon,


Heffy Doodle July Release – Reveal Day 3

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is JULY2020release_BANNER.jpg

Hello Everyone,

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!

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is LILLIGHTHOUSE_PREORDER_SQ-300x300.jpg

For today’s post I was playing with the 2 slimline die sets: Stitched Slimline Trio and Slimline Pull Tab dies and the most adorable Fluffy Puffy Unicorns stamp and die set.

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.

See you,


Coffee…you’re unforgettable!

Hello Everyone,

I have another funny card inspired by my love for coffee πŸ˜€ This time I used stamps and dies from Pink and Main.

For this clean and simple design I first stamped the cute elephant from Ears to you and the little mug from an older set called Cocoa Cafe. I coloured them with my Copics and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

On a 3 inches tall and 4.25 inches wide white piece of cardstock I stamped a sentiment from Ears to you in black. I die cut the word Coffee using the Thin Aplha dies and Green Sparkle Sheet. I adhered them above the stamped sentiment and placed the sleeping elephant with the mug on top of the letters.

I gave the panel a black thin mat and chose a patterned paper from the Beach Babe paper pad as background. The only embellishment I used are tiny clay hearts which bring a little dimension to this otherwise flat card.

I will link this up to the Coffee Lovers Spring/Summer Blog Hop and to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.

Hope you liked my card today and will come back tomorrow for another coffee related cutie! πŸ˜‰

See you,


Hugs and kisses – Pink and Main

Hello Everyone,

I am on the Pink and Main blog today with this clean and simple card design which can fit any occasion just with changing the sentiment. I love easy designs which I can alter according to the recipient’s taste.

I started with cutting a Stitched rectangle 2 die from a patterned paper from the On shore paper pad. I chose one design which has a lot of texture but homogeneous in colour.

I die cut the Mum die layers from white cardstock and lightly blended Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink with a blending brush on the edge of the petals. It makes it more realistic. I die cut the centre of the flower from Ice rink Sparkle sheet and assembled the flower. I added vellum leaves under it.

The sentiment I die cut with the Hugs die set: the shadow from vellum and the word itself from white glitter sheet. After assembling the card I added an extra sentiment from the coordinating Hugs needed stamp set using teal ink.

I love that this simple design gives the spotlight to the different textures: vellum, soft ink blending, glitter cardstock and textured patterned paper. So delicate!

I hope you enjoyed my inspiration today and will pop in again soon!

See you,


Fall leaves – Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello Everyone,

This is my second post today as it is my turn on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog. I love Fall and the nature around us is the best inspiration with all the beautiful colours.

I have recently discovered the Shades of Autumn stamp set and used a bunch of Distress inks to stamp them on cream cardstock in random order. I chose Autumn colours: Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold, Bundled Sage, Gathered Twigs and Aged Mahogany.

The stamp is created in a way that it adds a ton of texture, how beautiful and unique!

Then I used the postage stamp die from Frameworks to cut it down.

I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on top of the leaves and poured WOW Metallic Gold Sparkle embossing glitter on top and heat set it. I wanted it to stand out more, so i shifted the cardstock bit an stamped the sentiment again with brown ink to create a shadow.

I love the gold sparkle so much that I decided to add some dots to the leaves too. I used an embossing pen to add the dots and the same embossing powder to give them the glittery gold sparkle.

I finished the card with adhering the panel to a top folding kraft card base and tied brown twine around it on the top.

I hope you got inspired by my card and will pop in for something cute tomorrow!

See you,
