I started adhering the colourful pencils from the right side of the white panel in rainbow order.
Then I die cut the word Create from white sparkle cardstock 3 times and from black 3 times. I adhered a white sparkle on the top of a black one slightly offset for a shadow look. I repeated it 3 times and added the sentiments directly on the pencils. For the card base I used a slimline white one measuring 3,5*8,5 inches.

I am so excited to be part of the Heffy Doodle and Honey Bee Stamps Collaboration Blog Hop! I love both companies, they have amazing designs and so easy to combine them! I have 2 cards for you today in different styles: one elegant and one cute. Let me guide you through the cardmaking process.
For my first card I die cut a Heffy Doodle Stitched Rectangle from Copic friendly cardstock and stamped the Honey Bee Stamps Pretty Postage image on it. I used my Copics to colour it, kept the colours simple: reds and aqua. I added some dots when I was done with the colouring to add some texture to the leaves and flowers. I also used a black glaze pen to go over all the little black dots and a white gel pen for even more texture.
Then I die cut the Heffy Doodle Miss you sentiment: the shadow I cut from vellum, the sentiment itself I cut 2 times from dark red cardstock and layered them on top of each other. Even 2 layers make instant dimension!
The sentiment is from the Honey Bee Stamps Stolen my heart set: I heat embossed it on vellum with black sparkle embossing powder 2 times for a raised look. I used my Misti stamping tool for this, but even one layer of embossing powder givs a beautiful result! I used the coordinating die to cut it out and adhered it to the middle window using tiny drops of liquid glue behing the letters.
The card base is 3,5*8,5 inches. I popped up the racoons with 3D foam suares, added glossy accents to the nose and hearts and embellished the frame with tiny jewels from the Honey Bee Stamps Love letters gem collection. I love how this turned out, I hope it makes you smile too!
Both brands’ Design Teams have created wonderful inspiration for you. Make sure to comment along the way for your chance to win! Honey Bee Stamps will be giving away $30 and Heffy Doodle will be giving away £25 to their respective stores! Be sure to comment before 11:59 PM on Feb 3rd to be entered to win!

I am so excited to be part of the 8th annual Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop along with amazingly talented guest designers and our lovely Design Team for Newton’s Nook Designs! I hope you enjoyed the last couple of weeks full of holiday inspiration and will hop along with us today.
Newton’s Christmas Cuddles is one of my all time favourite sets and I wanted to use the kissing kitties on a Christmas scene. For my card as always I stamped and coloured the images and cut them out with their coordinating dies.
On a white top folding cardbase I applied a bit of Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink and adhered a piece of Doodlebug pattered paper on the bottom of the card. I added a thin strip of green glitter cardstock and popped up the images.
To complete the scene I die cut the leaves and berries from white cardstock using the Pines and Holly die set. I added Lucky Clover Distress Oxide ink to make the leaves green. I also cut the bow from dark red cardstock. and arranged them above the kitties.
For the sentiment I chose one from the Christmas Roundabout set and stamped it directly on the patterned paper with green ink. I cut the word Kissmas with the Essential Alphabet dies from dark red cardstock and arranged the letters a bit wonky under the stamped sentiment for a playful look.
As a finishing touch I added clear shimmer to the bow and presents and used a lot of glossy accents to emphasize some details and make the letters shiny.

Welcome to the Heffy Doodle Release Blog Hop! The new release is now available for purchase from Heffy Doodle and official retailers, and we are celebrating with lots of inspiration and a giveaway, too!
I used Copic markers to add colour and cut everything out with their coordinating dies. I love how the colourful ink gives the impression of no-line colouring!
The background is made with Nuvo Shimmer Powders: Blue Blitz and Atlantis Burst. I just added some sprinkles of the powders on watercolour carstock and spritzed it with water. I helped the drying with my heat tool. I cut it down with a Stitched Rectangle and matted it with a vivid blue cardstock.
I also cut some sand with the Stitched Slopey Joes die from kraft cardstock and adhered it to the ocean. I arranged the sea critters and adhered them flat with liquid glue.
I adhered the panel on a white card base and embellished the scene with a few iridescent bubbles from Studio Katia.
To celebrate the new release Heffy Doodle will be giving away a £50 voucher to the Heffy Doodle Store! Make sure to comment on each stop in the hop to be entered for your chance to win. The winner will be selected randomly and announced on Saturday, July 25th on the Heffy Doodle Blog.
I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock which was 8,5 * 3,5 inches and blended Distress Oxide inks at a diagonal in rainbow order: Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmelade, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch and Wilted Violet. I used blending brushes, I find them easier to get a smooth blend. I sprinkled the panel with water droplets and also added a bit of Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz for a subtle sparkle. When it was all dry I die cut it with the scalloped rectangle from Slimline Frames and Portholes.
Then I stamped two glasses from the Cocktail Mixer stamp set on Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink and used clear embossing powder to heat emboss them. Then I added colour with my new favourite Karin Brush markers. I love how strong the pigment is in these markers and the tip of it is not flimsy but rather firm. I used the coordinating die to cut them out.
In the middle hole I stamped two sentiments with Stazon Black Pigment ink and popped up the glasses with 3D foam squares.
I finished the cards with tiny clear jewels from Studio Katia.

I have 2 birthday cards for you today, let’s dive in the details!
For the background I chose a dotted patterned paper from Doodlebug Designs and matted it with hot pink cardstock. I assembled the tag as on the picture, used a white eyelet for the top and added green twine to it. I popped up the croc with 3D foam squares and stamped a small sentiment on the very top of the tag from the same stamp set.
The rest of the sentiment I white heat embossed on black cardstock and cut them down to very narrow strips which I adhered hanging off the tag.
I finished the card with a sprinkle of Rainbow Dots Glitter from Studio Katia. It makes it so festive and matches the patterned paper too!
I applied Blueprint Sketch and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide inks with a light hand on Bristol Smooth cardstock. Then I used the same coloured just over the Wave to me stencil. I repeated the process after shifting the stencil a bit. This way I got the perfect wavy background which I sprinkled with pearlized water for more texture.
I used the Seashell shaker die from Studio Katia to cut into the background and I also cut another one from blue violet cardstock for the thin frame. I adhered a piece of acetate on the back of the panel to create a shaker window.
I also die cut sand with the Heffy Doodle Stitched Slopey Joes dies and added Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide inks with a blending brush. I splattered the sand dune with diluted inks and white acrylic paint so it really looks like sand! I stamped a sentiment on the bottom of it from Shellabrate. The rest of the sentiment is from Oceans of Love which I white heat embossed in black cardstock and cut them into very thin strips.
I assembled the scene and added 3D foam strips to the back of it. On a white notecard I sponged a little Salty Ocean Distress Oxide and added some Chunky Dots Glitter and July Crystals and Poseidon Crystals from Studio Katia for the shaker part.
After the shaker was ready I used the same jewels to embellish the front of the card too. I also added glossy accents to the turtles and the starfish and used a black glaze pen on their eyes.
Heffy Doodle will be giving away a 25£ CG and Studio Katia a 25$ CG to their stores. Winners will be chosen randomly and announced on July 7th on the Heffy Doodle and Studio Katia blogs. Make sure to comment on each stop in the hop to be entered to win! Here is the full list:
Welcome to the Heffy Doodle and Inkon3 Collaboration Blog Hop! Our design teams have come together to share some amazing inspiration featuring Heffy Doodle and Inkon3 products, and there are prizes up for grabs, too!
This was the first time for me to try Atelier inks. They are water reactive, come in bold, bright colours and so easy to blend! I was playing with them for a while, trying different techniques to create this vibrant card. Let me show you!
First I blended My Jam Purple,Peacock Blue, Goddess Green, Bee Sting yellow and Marilyn red using an ink blending tool. The ink pads are so juicy that I had to be super light handed at the beginning 🙂 Those colours are gorgeous! I used them on Bristol Smooth cardstock as it is my favouite one for ink blending thanks to its slicker surface.
Then I took the Fancy foliage stencil from Heffy Doodle, sprayed it with Pixie Spray from Thermoweb to ensure it is not gonna shift while I am ink blending. I used the same colours just with heavier hands. Before removing the stencil I sprayed it with a handmade shimmer spritz: in a mini spritzer I added Liquid Pixie Dust and spritzed it over the entire surface. It gave such a pretty sparkle to the pattern!
DIRECT TO PAPER
I also wanted to try how bold the colours are if I simply apply the inkpads directly on the paper without a blending tool. I even managed to layer the colours and got that stunning teal colour – that is my favourite! Ohh my bold colour loving heart was jumping! I used the Amazoninan leaves die set from Heffy Doodle to create a rainbow of different leaves and tiny flowers.
I cut down the background with an Imperial Stitched Rectangle die and also cut a tag using the Tag along die set. The frame and backing I cut from smooth white cardstock and I also cut a vellum backing to layer over the white one. It is not really visible on the pictures but in real life it smoothens the texture and makes the whole tag look so delicate!
I arranged the foliage, adhered everything in place. I used a chunky blue twine to embellish the tag and painted Liquid Pixie Dust over the flowers I also adde mini white pearls to the flower centers.
Heffy Doodle will be giving away a 25£ CG and InkOn3 a 25$ CG to their respective stores. Winners will be chosen randomly among all the comments left on the blog hop stops and announced on Sunday, June 7th on the Heffy Doodle and InkOn3 blog.

For my card today I chose the super cute Delightful doxies stamp and die set. I stamped the dog and a bunch of balloons with black ink and coloured them with my Copic markers.I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
For the background I sponged Tumbled Glass Distress ink on Bristol Smooth cardstock and using the Cloudy sky stencil, I added Salty Ocean Distress ink. Then I shifted the stencil ad added another layer of clouds with Blueprint sketch distress ink. On the bottom I applied Mowed Lawn ink through the Hills and grass stencil. I cut the panel down with a die from Frameworks.
The sentiment is from the Uplifting wishes set, stamped dierectly on the clouds with blue violet ink. I assembled the scene using 3D foam squares under the dog and the balloons so they can float.
I adhered the panel to a kraft top folding notecard and added a ton of clear shimme to the balloons. I also added glossy accents to the butterflies and little hearts on the balloons. Isn’t it gorgeous?

Welcome to the Heffy Doodle Release Blog Hop! Heffy Doodle released a ton of new, exciting products in January and today we are celebrating with a blog hop to bring you even more inspiration – and prizes, too!
As I wanted the hedgehog holding a heart to face the other direction, I mirror stamped it and cut it out with the coordinating dies from the back. (I was following this video by Jennifer McGuire)
I cut a bunch of hearts from Cherry on top cardstock using the Whole lotta hearts dies. I did not separate my dies so with one pass through my Big Shot I could get a bunch of hearts in different sizes. On a strip of white cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Special Day sentiment duos with Altenew Heart beat ink and then once more with Versamark ink so I could heat emboss it with clear embossing powder.
I scattered 3 bigger hearts and popped up the die cut hedgies with 3D foam squares. Then I used the smaller hearts to fill the white space. I matted the focal panel with dark brown cardstock and added two Grassy lass borders cut from kraft cardstock. It matches the hedgehogs, don’t you think?
I could not resist adding some finishing touches: I used a clear shimmer pen on the hearts the critters are holding and covered them with glossy accents. I also used a black glaze pen on their noses to make them shiny and added a few strokes with my white gel pen to the quills.
Before popping it up with dimensional adhesive I covered a white note card with a red patterned paper (Taylored Expressions Formula for love).
I had another hedgehog coloured and I felt it was so abandoned, so I had to put it on a card. I die cut 2 nesting Stitched hearts: one from white and one from red cardstock. I layered them on top of each other and adhered the die cut critter in the middle.
I cut a square from red and white checked paper (MFT) and matted it with a slightly bigger red one. I used my paper trimmer for this. I mounted it all to a kraft square note card measuring 4.25*4.25 inches.
The sentiment is made wit the I love you die: I cut the letters from white cardstock and the shadows from dark brown. I love that the letter “I” has a small heart on top! I added an extra sentiment from the Quill you be mine set, stamped on kraft cardstock with brown ink.
I added a few enamel hearts and covered the one in the paws of the hedgehog with glossy accents, just as the nose of it to make it shining. So cute, isn’t it?

I am super excited to be joining the 7th Annual Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop organised by Newton’s Nook Designs! For this very special event I created this cute Christmas card using one of my favourite holiday stamp sets.
I started with stamping and colouring the cute bear in the car from the Winston’s home for Christmas set with Copic markers and fussy cut it out.
While it was drying I cut a piece of light grey cardstock with the same die to be the road, and a white scalloped rectangle from the same die set to be in the background. I decided to add a silver metallic layer in between the two just because I love layered cards.
The sentiment I white heat embossed on silver metallic cardstock and die cut it with the rounded tag die from the Tag times two die set. I also die cut some pine from dark green cardstock and a red bow using the Pines and holly die set. I layered these on top of each other and assembled the scene.
I added a red and white striped patterned paper to a white top folding card base before adhering the scene in place. I used a clear shimmer pen on the bow and the presents, added glossy accents on some parts of the car and ribbons and my card was all done!
