This is just an extra little post to wish all my muslim friends and family a blessed and very happy Eid!
For my card I used the Hello Bluebird Springtime, Heffy Doodle Happy Snappy crocs and the Altenew Eid Greetings stamps along with dies from MFT (Mini stitched scallop rectangles, Stitched Rectangles) and Simon Says Stamp (Hearts). The patterned paper is also from MFT (Tiny check brights).
I coloured the cut sheep with Copics, and cut it out with the coordinating dies. I added a slot with a craft knife around the arms to be able to hold the present. I white heat embossed the sentiment on a black strip of cardstock and die cut a white scalloped rectangle, a stitched rectangle from patterned paper and a red heart. I assembled the card on a kraft card base and popped up the sheep with 3D foam squares. I added some clear shimmer and shine with glossy accents to the present, and emphasized the eyes and nose with a black glaze pen.
I hope you like my clean and simple card today and wish to see you later with another mermaid card 😉
I have recently got my hands on some Heffy Doodle stamps, dies and stencils, and I was finally able to get some play time and make some cards with them. I am in love with their style, the stamps are really versatile and easy to combine. Today I played with the Party Palooza and the Happy Snappy Crocs stamps and dies.
I started with stamping, colouring and die cutting the images. Then I just sat down and played with them – it is really relaxing. I came up with a few Croc-cake combos, and I adhered them together as I wanted to put them on my cards. I also embellished each with Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen and Glossy accents.
Then I created the backgrounds. I die cut 3 postage stamp edged rectangles (Newton’s Nook Designs Frameworks die set) from Bristol Smooth cardstock. I masked off the stitched edge and applied Distress inks through the Numicon Stencil. I wanted a variation so I used different ink colours on each panel.
Then I mounted these on kraft card bases and stamped the sentiments on each. On some cards I white heat embossed parts of the sentiments on dark brown cardstock and used the coordinating dies to cut around them. I just love the look!
When all was stamped and arranged, I adhered the cards together. I used 3D foam tape to mount the crocs with the cakes.
I will link this project up to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Wild Thing and Wednesday Challenge Make your own background.
I hope you like my cards and got enthusiastic to try some Heffy Doodle fun too.
See you soon,
I am back from a mini vacation with my kids and my parents, we had a gorgeous relaxing time together in a small city in East-Hungary. I feel so recharged and still fully in summer mood 😀
Today I want to show you an ocean-themed card I made with Heffy Doodle products. I just simply adore their designs, so cute!
I started with sponging very lightly Distress inks on Bristol Smooth cardstock: Salty ocean, Peacock Feathers and Blueprint sketch. Then I placed the Bubble Waves stencil over it and went back with the same inks. Before removing it I sprayed Tsukineko Shimmer Mist all over for a subtle sparkle.
I stamped and coloured the images from the Oceans of love stamp set using Copic markers. I added some dotted details too for a textured look. Using the coordinating dies I die cut them out.
I also heat embossed a sentiment (from the same stamp set) in white on the stencilled background.
I added a doubled up frame with double stitching (Poppy stamps). I created my ocean scene with adhering the coloured images with liquid glue. As a final touch I added some white gel pen dots to the cheeks, black glaze pen on their eyes and glossy accents on the stones and the star. A few iridescent bubbles from Studio Katia finished off this cheerful summer card.
I will upload this project to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.
Hope you like my card an will return soon for more fun!
See you soon,
I am popping in today with a very summery card, I made for the Heffy Doodle Summer Loving Challenge.
I had a little beach scene in mind for a week now, where the little mice from the Hello Squeakheart set can have a bit of water-fun. So I stamped and coloured the little critters with Copics, used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I altered the house a bit to look like a beach house and drew a rug and a ball free-hand.
Then I was working on the scene using Distress inks. I cut waves (Mama Elephant die), a palm tree, a sun and clouds (MFT) and masked off the sand and then the sky. I added some water splatters to the sea and went over them with a Tonic Shimmer pen to give it some sparkle. I also added some light and darker brown splatters to the sand to give it a more realistic look.
After assembling my scene, I added some extra leaves to the palm tree with 3D foam squares, some matte enamel dots to look like coconuts and some glossy accent to the roofs and hearts on the houses.
The sentiment is a simple black “hello” from the same stamp set. I also added a house and a little mouse inside the card.
I will also upload this project to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Use more than one stamp.
I hope you like my card and will pop in tomorrow. I have some pretty projects scheduled for you already.
