Hang in there – Heffy Doodle

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle. The schoolyear is almost ending, I feel on my kids that they are super tired. They need all kinds of encouragement for the last stretch. I created this funny card to make them smile. I used stamps and dies from the latest release, let me guide you through the process.

I started with stamping the giraffes from the Two by Two safari animals set and coloured them with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers: GB5, GB3, GB2, GB1, EB7, GB10, GB7. I added some darker dots to each giraffe for a little texture. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

I also coloured a bunch of leaves: AG5, AG3, AG1. I also cut these out with their coordinating dies and while I was die cutting I cut the Hang in there Jumbo Sentiment from white cardstock and its shadow from dark brown cardstock.

I used liquid glue for assembling the sentiment as it gave me enough time to tuck the little leaves as embellishments in between the 2 layers. I love how it turned out!

To make the card funny, I adhered the giraffes upside down to the back of the sentiment and popped it all up on an A2 card base covered with pretty patterned paper form the Man Cave paper pad. I used 3D foam squares to give it dimension.

As a finishing touch I used a black glaze pen on their eyes and noses.

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!

Die cut garden – Heffy Doodle

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle, this time a die cut garden card which can be altered to suit any occasions. I used some dies and stencils from the latest release to create this cutie, let me guide you through the process.

First I used the Wonderful Windows Masquerade stencil on white cardstock and blended in Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide ink. Before removing the stencil I added some water droplets and diluted ink splatters to get a little texture.

Then I used the new Whimsically Wonky Imperial Rectangles dies to add stitching to the edge of the panel. It is such a nice touch and so easy to do!

For the mini gardens I used the new Rolling Hills Landscape Dies: I die cut grass and tulips with the small dies included in this die set. I used Heffy Doodle cardstock: Winter Green, Kiwi Crush, Butterscotch and Bubblegum. After assembling the card, I covered the tulips with a clear shimmer pen, just a for a touch of sparkle.

As this card was meant for Mother’s Day, I used the sentiment from the Special Day Sentiment Duos stamp set, but if you change the sentiment it can be a perfect retirement or birthday card too. I cannot wait to make this in all different colour combinations for different occasions!

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!

Heffy Doodle New Release Inspiration Blog Hop

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to the Heffy Doodle New Release Inspiration Blog Hop!  We are so excited to share amazing cards from 8 Design Team members using the new release!  For today’s special Blog Hop, you can win a £50 voucher to the Heffy Doodle store!

For my card I used a couple of stamps and dies from the new release and also some oldie but goodie products. Let me guide you through the process. First I stamped the images from the Udderly Fabulous stamp set and coloured them with my Spectrum NOir Illustrator markers. The full list of colours i used: BG9, BG7, BG5, BG3, BG1, GB4, CT2, FS7, FS6, MG3, MG1. Then I cut them out with their coordinating dies.

On a piece of white cardstock I used the Stoney Maloney stencil with Black Soot Distress Oxide ink, then die cut the word Thanks from the new Slimline Scalloped Peekaboo die set. I also cut another 3 layers from white cardstock and one from black. I layered them on top of each other, making sure to adhere the black layer a bit offset so it looks like shadow. Then I used a black glaze pen and went over the stenciled pattern. It looks so cool and shiny!

While I was die cutting I also cut the frame 3 times from white cardstock, layered them on top of each other and cut the shadow of the Thanks die from vellum. I cut grass with the Slimline Scenery die set from Greenbean cardstock.

I chose a Lawn Fawn patterned paper for the background, it measures 3,5*8,5 inches. I assembled the scene and popped up the cows with 3D foam squares. I also heat embossed a sentiment from the Udderly Fabulous stamp set on a thin strip of black cardstock and added it under the die cut sentiment. As a finishing touch I used a black glaze pen on the hooves and glossy accents on the horns, bell, and the little flower.

The list of colours I used: GB6, GB4, GB3, GB2, GB1, EB8, EB6, EB5, FS7, CT3, CT2. I cut everything out with their coordinating dies.

Heffy Doodle – New Release Day 3

Hello Everyone,

If you are looking for the Newton’s Nook Designs April Release Day 2 post, click here.

I am thrilled to share with you another card I created with the new release of Heffy Doodle! Pre-orders open on 20/04 and the new release will go live a week later on the 27/04! For all details please visit the Heffy blog.

I started with a smooth ink blended background: on Bristol Smooth cardstock I blended Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide inks. I made sure that the blending is smooth and the colours are light.

Then I used the new Flower Power stencil with a bit darker shades: Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmelade and Picked Raspberry. I turned the stencil 90 degrees and added a second layer of flowers with the same inks, but before removing the stencil I added White Glitz Glitter gel from Thermoweb on top.

While the background was drying I die cut the new Jumbo It’s Your Day sentiment from white cardstock 4 times and layered them on top of each other. I cut the shadow from vellum and assembled the sentiment.

I also die cut a bunch of leaves using the new Leafy Laurel Circle dies from yellow, orange and pink Heffy Doodle cardstock scraps. I embellished the sentiment with these leaves when I mounted it on the background.

As a finishing touch I used a clear shimmer pen on the sentiment for a subtle sparkle.

I wish you liked my card and will pop in again tomorrow for more sneak peeks!

See you,

Hello baby – Heffy Doodle

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle, this time a new baby card. I used a couple of stamps, dies and stencils to create this cutie, let me guide you through the process.

First I stamped and coloured the images from the Absotoothly Awesome and Mewniverse stamp sets using my Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers. The colours I used are the following: FS4, FS7, FS8, BP6, BP4, BP2, BP1, BP05, BG1, GB7, GB5, GB2, GB1. Then I die cut them all with their coordinating dies.

For the background I took a piece of Oyster Shell cardstock and cut it out with an Imperial Stitched Rectangle die. Then I used the Head in the Clouds stencil with Kitch Flamingo Distress Oxide ink first. I made sure not to add clouds to the bottom part of the panel. Then I shifted the stencil and ink blended it with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink. I made sure the first two layers were dry before adding a third layer of clouds, this time I used white texture paste.

While the clouds were drying, I white heat embossed a sentiment on a thin strip of black cardstock from the Special Day Sentiment duos.

I also cut grass with the Grassy Lass border die set and a pink blanket using a small Stitched Circle die. I assembled the scene using 3D foam squares to pop up the images.

I chose a pink checked patterned paper (Doodlebug Designs) for the background and added a shiny silver mat to the focal panel before adhering it to the card base. As a finishing touch I added Clear Star Sequins as falling blessing from the fairies and used a clear shimmer pen on their wings.

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!

I am proud of you – Heffy Doodle

Hello Everyone,

Kids’ appreciation is absolutely on my flag, I truly believe that we need to encourage them and praise them daily so that they become self-assured and confident in their every day life. I also believe that whatever it written down, is much stronger and longer lasting than if it is only said. Therefore I make encouragement cards to my kids often. Today I brought you this cute hedgehog card with Heffy Doodle goodies: it looks complicated but it is very simple. Let me guide you through the process.

I started with stamping the hedgehogs from the Quill you be mine stamp set, and a few accessories for building a scene from the Big Bug Hugs and Otter side stamp sets. I coloured everything with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers: EB7, EB5, EB3, EB1, RB2, RB1, MB05, CG4, CG2, CG1, DR3, DR1, DR05, BG8, BG6, BG4, BG2, BG1, BG05. Then I die cut them with their coordinating dies.

I also stamped a couple of sentiments from the Watcha Sayin’ Now set on little thought bubbles and cut them out with their dies.

For the background I did a simple one colour (Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide) ink blending on light blue cardstock through the Numicon stencil. After removing the stencil I added diluted ink splatters and used pearl and black Finetec watercolours to add some sparkle too.

While the background was drying I quickly die cut 3 Skinny Imperial Rectangle Frames: 2 white and 1 dark red. I adhered the frames to the stenciled background and popped up the coloured images with 3D foam tape. I also used 3D foam under the thought bubbles, I love the dimension!

As a finishing touch I used a black glaze pen on the noses, glossy accents on the mushrooms and a white pencil to add highlight to the quills.

Lucky stars – Heffy Doodle

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle, this time a little thank you note. I used a couple of stamps, dies and stencils to create this cutie, let me guide you through the process.

First I stamped and coloured the images from the Hootiful stamp set using my Copic markers. Then I die cut them all with their coordinating dies.

To set the night scene I die cut a Stitched Oval from Bristol Smooth cardstock and blended in Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide inks. I added some water droplets for a bit of texture. Then I used the Constellation prize stencil with Gina K Designs White Glitz Glitter Gel to create a starry sky. I set it aside to dry.

I wanted some tone-on-tone background for my scene, so I die cut the Quilted heart background from white cardstock and adhered it to a white A2 sized notecard. Meanwhile the glitter gel got dry so I could white heat emboss a sentiment from the Hootiful set on the bottom of the oval.

I adhered the branches and then popped up the owls with 3D foam squares. I die cut a small stitched heart from white glitter cardstock using the Sun, Moon and stars die set and placed it in-between the wings of one of the owls, like he is giving it to the other one. So cute!

Fawned of you – Heffy Doodle

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to another Valentine edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle, a cute forest scene. For me expressing love is a regular thing, I love to create little notes to my loved ones, This little woodland scene can easily be altered to fit any occasion. Let me guide you through the process.

First I stamped and coloured the images from the Deer to me stamp set and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I used my Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers, only brown shades this time: deers and mushrooms: TN9, EB6, EB5, EB3, EB2, EB1, TN2, TN1 trunk: EB7, MB4, MB3, MB1, MB05.

While I was die cutting, I cut all the elements I needed for the background scene: I used the Tree-mendous Peekaboo Tree die set to cut the trunk from craft cardstock and the canopy from Wintergreen cardstock. I added stitching details to the trunk with the Woodgrain Texture die. I used the Grassy Lass Border dies to cut grass from Kiwi Crush cardstock. I used Distress Oxide inks to add some shading to them and also some diluted ink splatters for a textured look. It is an easy way to add depth to the die cuts.

On a white card base I added a little Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink with a blending brush, just gently and spritzed it with water. I used a paper towel to dab it off after 20 seconds. That is the easiest way to get a pretty sky. I assembled the scene: I cut the treetrunk in half and adhered it to the card base, covered the bottom with the grass and the top with the canopy. Then I stamped a sentiment in between the trees from the Deer to me set.

I popped up the deers, trunk and mushrooms with 3D foam squares and added a die cut I love you sentiment to the canopy: the shadow I cut from kraft cardstock and the words from Cornflower cardstock 3 times and stuck them on top of each other.

I used little pink hearts as embellishments which I cut with the Whole Lotta Hearts set. As a finishing touch I added white gel pen dots to the deers and used a black glaze pen on their hooves and noses. I also added glossy accents to the mushrooms and hearts.

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!
