Perfect Combos – Pencil heart

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle. As a colouring addict, I am in love with the new Pencil Heart die. This time I combined it with some other dies and my favourite colours of cardstocks. Let me guide you through and share some tricks.

First I die cut the Pencil Heart die from various cardstocks: I love aqua, teal and purple together so I used some scraps from my stash. I also die cut it once from cream cardstock and collected all little pieces in a tray.

Then I die cut the background pencil die 3 times from white cardstock and adhered them together. It gives instant dimension without using 3D adhesives. I love the way it looks from the sides too and it is less fragile this way if you want to mail the card.

I adhered the coloured pencils to the white background, it is like playing puzzles. I enjoyed the process and if you use liquid glue like Glubert it is a breeze. For the background I die cut the Quilted Heart Background die from white cardsock and backed it with an aqua one. I adhered the focal panel in the middle.

For the sentiment I die cut the word Colour (included in the Pencil Heart die set) from silver sparkle cardstock and white heat embossed the rest of the sentiment from the Pandtastic Painters stamp set on thin black cardstock strips. I glued them to the middle of the pencil heart and my card is all finished.

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 also share my happy creations! Thank you!

Masculine birthday – Heffy Doodle

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle. Are you struggling with masculine cards? I admit I do, mostly because I love bling and sparkle and somehow it just does not fit the concept of a guy card. Today I show you a way how you can still have texture and shine, without making a card glittery and “for her”.

I started with stamping the cake and a couple of candles from the Popping by stamp set, coloured them with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinting dies. I die cut a Stitched Oval from a textured white cardstock and popped up the cake with the candles using the thick 3D foam tape from the Heffy Doodle Essentials line. It gives so much dimension, I love it!

For the background I used the Lots of Happy stencil on Neenah Desert Storm cardstock with Gatherd Twigs Distress Oxide ink. As this ink stays wet for a while, I simply heat embossed the pattern with clear embossing powder. It gives just a little shine, not too much. Then I cut down the panel a little and ink blended a bit of the same brown ink on the sides using a blending brush. It makes the focal panel pop even more!

For the sentiment I chose the Wavy banner dies and Wavy Banner Sentiments: I stamped with a brown ink on a Neenah Desert Storm banner and matted it with a slightly bigger brown one. I used the same brown cardstock to mat the stenciled background too.

After popping up the banner with the thick 3D foam tape I added just a light touch of clear shimmer to the flame and covered the candles and chocolate drops with glossy accents.

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 also share my happy creations! Thank you!

To my Homeschool hero!

Hello Everyone,

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

Even though my kids are back to normal school now, they had an intense 1.5 months of homeschooling due to Covid. I wasn’t easy for them as they are still small, but they handled it well and I am so proud of them. This inspired the card I am going to show you today. I mixed some of the new release products for this cutie. Let’s dive in the details!

First I stamped and coloured the images from the Pandtastic Painters stamp set using my Neutral Grey Copic markers. Colouring black and white images really relax me as I don’t think about which colours go well with each other. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Then I used the DL Stitched Slimline Trio dies to cut 3 rectangles, one big from blue cardstock and 3 smaller ones: a white, darker and lighter purple. I wanted a fun multiple window design, so I die cut the DL windows from the dark purple rectangle and some Stithced Stars from the lighter purple layer. I used my Misti to help me with the alignment of the stars. When I had the stars windows too, I placed the white rectangle under the window panel and stamped 3 star shaped messages in the middle of each using the Homeschool Hero stamp set and Catherine Pooler purple ink.

I heat set the ink and very carefully coloured the stars with a blue marker. I assembled the multiple windows panel using thin 3D foam tape and covered the stars with glossy accents. Until it was drying I white heat embossed 2 other sentiments from the Homeschool Hero set on black cardstock, trimmed them down to be small banners and added them under the pandas before securing them on the card.

As a finishing touch I used a tiny drop of glossy accents on the pandas’ noses and my card was all finished! I cannot wait to make this design in different colours too, so cute!

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 also share my happy creations! Thank you!

Popping by – Heffy Doodle

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle. May is a birthday heavy month in my family and I thought I would show you an sweet interactive card today made with stamps and dies from the new release. Usually I am intimidated from interactive cards but the new slider pop-up is super easy even if you are not an experienced crafter. Let me guide you through the process.

Pre-orders are open and all order get a freebie stamp – if you spend above 45 GBP you even get the coordinating die!

First I stamped and coloured the images from the Popping by stamp set using Copic markers. I went with cheerful, rather girlish colours but I cannot wait to make the same with more masculine colours too. I die cut all with the coordinating dies and assembled the little present using Glubert.

Then I created the interactive part: first I die cut the stitched frame from patterned paper and also from light blue cardstock. I cut off the “flap” of the patterned paper one so all I had left was a frame. I adhered it to the blue panel with Glubert and folded the flap at the crease lines.

I embellished the flap: added a thin Oyster Shell strip to the bottom until the first crease line and popped up the coloured image right above using 3D foam tape. I made sure to adhere only the present and let the balloons be free of adhesive so the mechanism could work properly. I needed the insert piece which I die cut from white cardstock, and adhered the bottom of the blue flap to it (until the first crease line). The top of the insert I embellished with a small die from the Slimline Pull Tab dies: I cut the stitched part from Banana Split and the arrow from Ice blast cardstock scraps.

The first half of the sentiment I stamped directly on the top of the blue flap using a Catherine Pooler ink. The other half of the sentiment I stamped directly on the white card base. To ensure the right placement I put the frame on the card base in my Misti, in this way I could see where the sentiment had to be.

Finally it was time to assemble the interactive part: I put thick 3D foam strips on the back of the frame in a U shape, leaving the top free. I adhered it to the card base and it was all done! So easy! As a finishing touch I covered the balloons with clear shimmer and added glossy accents to the ribbon. I also adhered a bunch of blue star sequins to the background to make it even more festive!

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!

Heffy Doodle New Release – Day 4

Hello Everyone,

It is the last day of the New Release reveals at Heffy Doodle, but still so many new products are being introduced on the Heffy Doodle Blog. It is definitely worth to check!

Pre-orders are open from today and don’t forget: with every pre-order you can get a freebie stamp, and if your order is above 45GBP you will receive even the coordinating dies! Wohoo!

My inspiration for you today is a cute, layered design with a lot of texture.

First I started with ink blending through the Balloon Room stencil on Bristol Smooth cardstock with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink. Then I shifted the stencil and added a second layer of balloons with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink. I shifted again and for the last layer I applied Brilliant Blue Glitz Glitter Gel from Thermoweb using a stencil pal. I removed the stencil, cleaned it right away and set the panel aside to dry.

Meanwhile I stamped and coloured the cute fox and party hat from the Popping by stamp set using Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

While I was at die cutting I also cut the Happy Birthday Shadow die from glitter cardstock and its shadow from blue.

When the stenciled background was dry I trimmed it down a little and added black and gold splatters. I dried it with my heat tool, adhered the sentiment and popped up the fox with thin 3D foam tape. I added an orange mat to the panel before adhering it to a white card base.

As a finishing touch I used a black glaze pen on the eyes, glossy accents on the nose and party hat too.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration with the new release and will come back soon for more!

See you,

Heffy Doodle New Release – Day 3

Hello Everyone,

It is the 3rd day of the new release reveals at Heffy Doodle! There are wonderful new stamps and dies and stencils being shown on the Heffy Doodle blog, it is worth to check them out!

With every pre-order you can get a freebie stamp, and if your order is above 45GBP you will receive even the coordinating dies! Wohoo!

I got you a quite clean and simple design today to showcase the Pebble Sentiments stamp set.

On a white stitched rectangle I placed 6 different messages from the set and inked them up with red, yellow and orange inks. I used my Misti stamping tool which allowed me to stamp back several times without shifting and this was all the intricate sentiments stayed crisp. I chose Catherine Pooler inks because they come in beautiful colours and so juicy.

I gave this panel a thin red mat and die cut the biggest stitched rectangle from orange cardstock. I love to add layers to my simpler cards too.

I white heat embossed 2 sentiment from the More Classic sentiments stamp set on very thin black cardstock strips and popped them up with thick 3d foam tape.

I embellished each pebble with sequins and jewels in coordinating colours. I used the Glubert glue, it is perfect to add thin dots too. It totally gives the extra bling this card needs.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration with the new release. Don’t forget: pre-orders starts on 26/04!

See you tomorrow for more fun!

Heffy Doodle New Release – Day 2

Hello Everyone,

It is the second day of the new release reveals at Heffy Doodle with a whole bunch of great new products. On the Heffy Doodle Blog you will see a lot of details and I have a project for you to tease you further.

With every pre-order you can get a freebie stamp, and if your order is above 45GBP you will receive even the coordinating dies! Wohoo!

For today’s card I stamped and coloured the images from the Pandtastic Painters stamp set using Copic markers and cut everything out with the coordinating dies. I adhered them on a kraft tag which I die cut with the Tag along die set, added a black reinforcer and black and white twine.

I added tiny little confetti to the canvas, I made these with the little dies from the Tag along set. So fun to use these as embellishments!

The sentiment is made with the new Create die: the shadow I die cut from black cardstock and the word “create” from white 3 times and stacked them together. Then I used a bunch of Copic markers to add the rainbow colours. I tried to colour the edges too, for a smoother look. When I adhered it to its place I covered the letters with glossy accents and set it aside to dry.

The background I also created with a fun new stencil. I laid the Broad strokes stencil on a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and applied different Distress Oxides in each row: Blueprint Sketch, Speckled Egg, Twisted Citron and Mustard Seed. Before removing the stencil I added some splatters with water and black ink and also sprayed it with Tsukineko Shimmer Mist. It gave a subtle sparkly look to it, so gorgeous!

I used a kraft card base, adhered the stenciled panel and popped up the tag at an angle using 3D foam tape. As a finishing touch I added glossy accents to the colour palette, the panda’s nose and the little heart.

I hope you enjoyed my card inspiration with Heffy Doodle’s new release, make sure to pop in again tomorrow for more reveals!

See you,

Heffy Doodle New Release – Day 1

Hello Everyone,

I am thrilled to share with you my projects in the coming days for the new release of Heffy Doodle! There is a ton of cuteness coming and I am happy to tease you further with my inspiration.

With every pre-order you can get a freebie stamp, and if your order is above 45GBP you will receive even the coordinating dies! Wohoo!

I used the Just a note stamp/die set for my card today. I stamped and coloured the notebook an pen with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

I die cut a stitched rectangle from Bristol Smooth cardstock and used the new Messy Desk stencil to create a fun splashy background: I blended Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide inks with a blending brush. I popped up the die cut images in the middle using 3D foam tape.

I love die cut setiments and could not help adding a “Hello” die cut above the image. It adds so much to this clean & simple design.

I gave the stitched panel a grey mat and used a bit of glossy accents on the pen and my card is all finished!

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration with the new release. Don’t forget: pre-orders starts on 26/04!

See you tomorrow for more fun!

Happy Mother’s Day – Heffy Doodle

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle. Mother’s Day is approaching both in Hungary and in the USA so I decided to grab the most adorable hedgies and pair them with a couple of Heffy Cuts and stamps to create a super cute card for mum. Let’s dive in the details!

I started with stamping and colouring the hugging hedgies from Quill you be mine with Copic markers. I used the Alcohol marker friendly white cardstock from Heffy Doodle, it allows the ink blend beautifully. I cut them out with the coordinating dies.

For the background I die cut the Quilted Heart Background die from white cardstock, cut it down to be a bit smaller with a Stitched Rectangle die and backed it with a slightly bigger kraft rectangle.

Then I took the Stitched Hearts die set and cut different sized hearts out of pink cardstock and patterned paper. I arranged them on the white stitched background and popped up the hugging hedgehogs.

I covered the front of an A2 sized card base with the same patterned paper I used for the die cut heart and adhered the focal panel. For the sentiment I chose the Special Day Sentiment Duos set and white heat embossed the Mother’s Day sentiment on a strip of textured brown cardstock. I adhered it under the hedgehogs and finished the card with using a black glaze pen on their noses.

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!
