Batty wishes – Heffy Doodle

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle. I was playing with the new release and came up with a fun interactive design idea. It’s very simple but so cute! Let me show you!

First I coloured one of the bats from the Let’s Hang Out stamp set using Copic markers. Then I cut it out with the coordinating die.

For the background I took a piece of white cardstock and created purple clouds with the Cloudy sky stencil and Villaneous Potion and Milled Lavender Distress Oxide inks. I moved from the top of the cardstock and on the bottom I used the Sleepy Hollow stencil and Black Soot ink for the graveyard. I added a ton of splatters with Finetec Pearlescent Pearl paint and also some diluted purple ink.

I used the Celestial Corner die to cut tiny stars on the top of the stenciled panel and backed it with silver glitter cardstock.

I also die cut the Happy Halloween Shadow word die from purple glitter cardstock and the shadow from black cardstock and adhered them together.

To frame the whole scene I cut the frame from the Elm street die set from purple cardstock and glued it to the scene.

And now the interactive part: I tool a small piece of very thin silver thread and attached one end to the back of my bat with Scotch tape. The other end I attached to the back of sentiment, which I popped up on the card with 3D foam squares. This way the little bat can fly around, so cute! I will have a short video on my Instagram to show you this card in action, visit me there!

I wish you got inspired and ready for Halloween crafts. Don’t forget that every order above 30 GBP gets this adorable freebie, and if you spend above 45 GBP, you will get the coordinating dies too.

See you soon,

Trick or treat – Heffy Doodle

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle. As the pre-order of the new release has started already, I thought I will show you a clean and simple Halloween card design mixing and matching stamps, dies ad papers from the new release. Let’s dive in.

First I stamped and coloured the most adorable ghosts from Ghoulfriends using Copic markers. The colour I used are: C3, C0, C00 and a blender pen. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and made their eyes shiny with a black glaze pen.

Then I die cut the Trick or Treat Jumbo sentiment twice: once from black cardstock and once from a glittery purple. I cut the letters from the purple one and adhered them on top of the black one slightly offset, so it looks like it has shadows. I left the spiderweb with the spiders and the bats purely black, it stands out more.

I chose a purple diagonal striped patterned paper from the new Fright Night paper pad and cut it down to be slightly smaller than an A2 sized card front. I gave it a black mat before adhering it to the cardbase.

I used liquid glue to adhere the sentiment in place which gave me enough time to tuck the little ghosts under the letters.

So simple, but adorable, don’t you think? I wish you got inspired and ready for Halloween crafts. Don’t forget that every pre-order now gets this adorable freebie, and if you spend above 45 GBP, you will get the coordinating dies too.

Happy shopping and see you soon, ghoulfriends!

Flower bouquet with Heffy Doodle

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle.

This time I created a bouquet of flowers with an old-but-new-to-me stamp set called Blooming marvellous and some colourful inks. So much fun and so many possibilities! I used enamel dots and the Summer Holiday paper pad from the latest release. Let me guide you through the process!

First I stamped a bunch of flowers with Catherine Pooler inks to Neenah Solar white cardstock. I love these inks as they come in beautiful colours and the result is gorgeous every time. The ink smooths out on the cardstock like it was printed. I used the coordinating dies to cut every piece out. For small die cuts I love my Heffy Doodle mini die cut machine, so much easier and faster than with my regular sized one.

Then I created the wrapping from a 3.5 inches square piece of kraft cardstock by folding in the edges at half on 2 sides. I used the scoring blade of my Mini Heffy Doodle Trimmer to add the score line.

I added a bit of shading with some brown ink and a blending brush on the folded edges, this little trick gives a lot of depth to any plain shape. Then I glued it together and arranged my die cut flowers in it, until I got a nice bouquet. Some I adhered to the back of the kraft cardstock, some to the inside of the front to get a really dimensional bouquet. I embellished each with a matching enamel dot and added a tiny little twine to the bottom of it. I love how it turned out!

The rest of the card I kept simple: I used a polka dot patterned paper from the Summer Holiday paper pad with a Whimsically Wonky Imperial Rectangle for the background and stamped a sentiment on the bottom left corner from the Farmyard fun stamp set.

I adhered the bouquet at an angle and finished the card with a white die cut Hello, which I layered up on top of a black one slightly offset, so it looks like it has a shadow. Isn’t it perfect for any occasions?

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

See you,

Sparkly rainbow – Heffy Doodle

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle. Have you seen the super sparkly, beautiful sequin mixes which have been released recently? Those gorgeous colours are so inspiring and the idea of a sparkly rainbow struck me. Let me show step by step how I made this cute card.

First I looked through my Heffy Doodle cardstock scraps and selected Cookie Monster, Hint Of Mint, Plum Pudding and Simply Tealicious. I played Cinderella and selected the matching colours of sequins from the Covesea, Unicorn Dream and Royal Mist mixes. It was so fun and didn’t take too long at all. When the preparation was done, I die cut the Starry Rainbow die from all the scraps and created my own rainbow. I used Heffy Tape to hold the pieces together, I even left the stars in the die cut and adhered a sequin on top of each one. It looks gorgeous in real life!

Then I die cut some clouds from white cardstock with the Big Stitched Clouds die and also the “rainbow” word from the Rainbow Builder die set from silver glitter cardstock.

For the background I chose a striped paper from the new Summer Holiday paper pad but I wanted to mute it with a piece of vellum to have a more cloudy feel. I used double-sided adhesive sheets to adhere the vellum, this way the adhesive doesn’t show through.

After adhering the rainbow, the sentiment and popping up the clouds with 3D foam squares, I stamped the rest of the sentiment from the Close at heart set with Staz-on Black ink.

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

See you,

Birthday crocs – Heffy Doodle

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle. This time I mixed and matched my favourite crocs with birthday accessories to create a very cheerful birthday card. So whimsical that it can really make anyone smile, don’t you think?

I started with stamping the images from Happy Snappy Crocs and Party Palooza, and coloured them with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers: JG7, JG5, LG4, LG2, GB5, GB2, GB1, CT4, CT2, CT1, IB3, IB2, IB1, EB8, EB5, EB3, BG5, BG2, BG1. Then I cut everything out with the coordinating dies.

For the background I used the Brick by brick stencil with Ranger Texture paste, which I have previously mixed with a bit of Black Sooth Distress Oxide ink. I used heavy weight white cardstock so it could handle all that paste without curling up too much. When the panel was dry, I did some light ink blending with Black Sooth Distress Oxide ink on the sides. I also blended a bit of black ink on a thin strip of white cardstock to serve as pavement.

I assembled the card adding all the accessories to the happy crocs. I used 3D foam squares to pop them up and heat embossed a sentiment on black cardstock from the Party Palooza set. I used the coordinating die to cut them out, it looks so cool when die cut!

I adhered it to the scene and added a few tiny star sequins to enhance the festivities. I also drew the balloon strings with a black marker.

As a finishing touch I used a white gel pen, a clear sparkle pen and glossy accents.

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

See you,

Koalified to party – Heffy Doodle

Hello Everyone,

If you are looking for the Newton’s Nook Designs July Release post, click here.

Welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle. This time I mixed and matched older and newer stamps, dies and stencils to create a very summery birthday card. With the yellow, grey, gold colour combination it is not just very festive, but can be gifted to guys too, yay!

I started with stenciling the background directly on a white top folding card base. I used the Circle Masquerade stencil with Scattered Straw Distress Oxide ink and then placed the Simply Radiant stencil over it and added SSS Citrine Glitz Glitter gel. It looks lovely, the reveal time when we remove the stencils is always so exciting!

Then I die cut the Leafy Laurel die from grey cardstock and from black cardstock and layered them on top of each other tiny offset for a shadow look. I embellished it with tiny yellow die cut flowers and added Studio Katia Gold Sparkle Crystals in the middle of each.

I stamped and coloured the cute koala and accessories from the Koality Hugs stamp set using Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers: BG7, BG5, BG4, BG2, BG1, BG05, GB5, CT3, CT1, FS7, FS6. I used the coordinating die to cut them out. I love how the coordinating dies cut around the paws so I could tuck the present under them easily.

For the sentiment I die cut the word Happy from the Stitched Birthday Trio Frame die set from gold glitter and black cardstock, adhered them on top of each other like I did with the laurel. The rest of the sentiment I white heat embossed on black cardstock and cut it out with the Wavy Banner die – it coordinates perfectly!

After adhering everything in place and popping up the koala with thick 3D foam tape, I used a clear shimmer pen on the party hat and present and some glossy accents on the nose and ribbon as finishing touches.

I wish you enjoyed my card today and will pop in again soon for more inspiration!

Bunny Love – Heffy Doodle

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle. The school year is officially finished, my kids did excellent and I am so proud of them! I created a funny little card to remind them how much I love them. They are my little bunnies. I mixed and matched stamps and dies to create this clean and simple card, let me guide you through the process.

First I stamped and coloured the images from the Veggie patch and Honey Bunny Boo stamp sets using Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers: BO4, BO3, BO1, GY2, JG7, JG5, LG4, LG2, BG7, BG4, BG2, BG05. I cut them all out with their coordinating dies.

Then I die cut an Imperial Stitched rectangle from white cardstock, matted it with a slightly bigger piece of Pumpkin Patch cardstock. For the background I used the Woodgrain Background Texture die on Wintergreen cardstock, I love the stitching details!

Then I stamped the word “bunny” from the Honey Bunny Boo set with a matching orange ink and another one from the Veggie Patch stamp set with a matching green ink in two rows. It looks so cool in colour, like a block sentiment.

I popped up the images with 3D foam squares, placed the mini bunny in front of the huge smiling carrot and used a white gel pen to add highlights. I also used my black glaze pen on the eyes to make them shiny.

I wish you liked this clean ad simple card design and it made you smile. Share with us your creations in our Facebook group and check my Instagram for some extra tips on colouring. Thank you so much for your support!

Heffy Doodle and Pawsome Stamps Collaboration Blog Hop

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to the Heffy Doodle (HD) and Pawsome Stamps (PS) Collaboration Blog Hop! Our Design Team members are sharing inspiration using products from both companies! I brought you a sea-themed card for the occasion to show you how well different stamp sets work together.

First I stamped the images from the PS Birthday Fishes and the HD Oceans of Love and HD A Little Shellfish stamp sets. I used Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers to colour them: DR5, DR3, DR05, BG8, BG6, BG3, BG05, RB2, RB1, FS9, FS7, CR5, CR2, CR05, AG5, AG3, AG1, DP3, DP2, DP1, IG2. I cut everything out with their coordinating dies.

For the background I did some light ink blending on Bristol Smooth cardstock with Scattered Straw, Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide inks. Then I took the HD Tiny Waves stencil and added some waves with the same colours, just randomly, for a little texture. I also added some sunrays with the Rays the roof stencil an white pigment ink. It looks so cool! I used a heat gun to dry it before die cutting the panel with a Whimsically Wonky Imperial Rectangle die.

The sentiment is from the HD Oceans of love set, I white heat embossed the word “oceans” on black cardstock and cut it out with its coordinating die. I love sentiments which can be cut out, they make a card so unique! The rest of the sentiment I stamped with Versafine Onyx black ink.

Before assembling the card I used some brown markers and added dots to the sand. All the scenebuilding elements I adhered flat with liquid glue, only the whale I popped up with 3D foam squares.

As a finishing touch I used a black glaze pen on the eyes, added some white gel pen highlights and used glossy accents on the starfish. I also used some PS Ocean Breeze sequins and added tiny dots with glossy accents to the water to look like air bubbles. And I couldn’t resist and covered the whale and ray fish with Spectrum Noir Clear Shimmer pen for a subtle sparkle.

Happy Father’s Day – Heffy Doodle

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle. As Father’s Day is on the corner, I wanted to show you a fun design to celebrate the daddies.  I used stamps and dies from the latest release, let me guide you through the process.

First I created a cute boat using the Boats and Barns die set. I used Heffy Doodle cardstock and shaded the pieces a little with some Distress Oxide ink blending. I assembled it and used the Classic Sentiments to stamp the main message on the boat itself.

Then I created the background: I inkblended a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink and use the Simple sunburst stencil with Mustard Seed Distress Oxide ink to add the sunrays. Before removing the stencil I have spritzed the panel with Avery Elle Shimmer spritz for a subtle sparkle.

I also die cut a scrap piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock with a Breaking Waves banner die and used Salty Ocean Distress Oxide to give it some colour. I added some water and diluted ink splatters for a textured look.

It would have looked gorgeous on its own, but I wanted some cute passengers on this boat. So I stamped and coloured 3 funny seagulls from the You go, gull stamp set using Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers. The list of colours I used are: OR3, BO1, OR05, BG6, BG3, BG1, BG05. I die cut them with their coordinating dies and assembled the card.

As a finishing touch I added another sentiment above the seagull captain, used a black glaze pen on their eyes and added glossy accents to their beaks.

I wish you enjoyed my card today and share with us in our Facebook group if I inspired you. Follow me on Instagram if you like my cards, your support means so much to me! Thank you!

See you soon,
