Heffy Doodle New Release Inspiration Blog Hop

Hi everyone,

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!

CARD 1

I started with stamping and colouring the images from the Quill you be mine stamp set using Copic markers. I adore these critters, they are super cute! I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

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).

CARD 2

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?

Newton's Nook Designs January Release – DAY 4

Hello Everyone,

We have reached the final day of the January release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs. We saved the best for last: 2 smaller sets with our favourite kitty. All new products will be available tomorrow, on 24th January.

CARD 1

For my first card I started with the background: I always wanted to try Distress Oxide inks over coloured cardstock, so I used the Bokeh Hearts stencil Layer 1 with Warm Lipstick and Layer 2 with Candied Apple over kraft cardstock. I love that these stencils have engraved guides how to layer them on top of each other. So smart!

Then I stamped, coloured and die cut the kitty, flowers and hearts from the Newton’s Valentine set. I made extras as embellishments as usual. I used Copic markers to add colour.

To create a scene I die cut a rounded stitched rectangle using the Frames and Flags die set from vellum as I did not want to cover the pretty stenciled background totally. I cut a grassy border from green cardstock and assembled the scene.

I die cut the stenciled panel with the scalloped rectangle from the same die set and hiding the liquid adhesive behind the die cut critters I layered the vellum over this.

The sentiment I white heat embossed on a dark brown banner (Frames and flags) and added it to the scene.

I used a ton of shimmer on the hearts and covered the smaller ones with glossy accents. I also added glossy accents to the middle of the flowers and the nose of the kitty.

CARD 2

I believe the Newton’s Crafty Cardio is hilarious! Made me laugh big time when I first saw it! So funny!

I stamped the main image and a lot of the little accessories on white cardstock, coloured them with Copic markers using a rainbow of colours and cut everything with the coordinating dies.

On a grey rounded rectangle I popped up the crafty kitty and arranged the accessories at random everywhere. It reminds me of myself while crafting, i make a huge mess in a second šŸ˜€

The sentiment I stamped on white cardstock with teal ink and cut it out with a speech bubble die. I used 3D foam squares to adhere it above the crafting kitty.

I matted the panel with pink cardstock and added it to a white top folding card base after adorning it with strips of rainbow patterned paper (Lawn Fawn).

I added clear shimmer and glossy accents to the images and my card was all done!

Love you a latte – Coffee Loving Cardmakers Guestie

Hello Everyone,

I am so happy to be back with my third coffee themed card as a guest designer on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog this month.

If you follow me, you know that I adore Lawn Fawn. Their whimsical designs cheer me up and I love how the different sets can be combined. This is what I did for todayā€™s card too, I stamped images from the following sets: Love you a latte, Thanks a latte, Frosty fairy friends and So smooth.

Usually when I colour a scene I use a patterned paper pad as inspiration for the colour combos. This time it was Doodlebug Designs Winter Wonderland, and I chose a pretty striped paper to be the background of my scene.

I used Copic markers to add colour to the stamped images and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I arranged them on a piece of warm grey cardstock from Hero Arts which I cut down to be 3.25 inches wide.

I stamped a sentiment in black from the Love you a latte set and matted the panel with Peacock cardstock from Simon Says Stamp.

Only the finishing touches were remaining at this point: a little glossy accents on the fairiesā€™ accessories and some clear shimmer on the snowflakes. I could not resist using a white gel pen to add some stripes to the scarf and some dots to the background.

I hope you like this cheerful love card which I think is perfect for the upcoming Valentineā€™s Day too. Thanks so much for stopping by and see you next week with more coffee themed inspiration!

Hugs,

Zsofi

Piece of my heart – Pink and Main

Hello Crafty friends,

I am back today with a super sweet love card made with goodies from Pink and Main – not only for Valentine’s Day, but perfect as a simple “just because” too. I really believe that we have to grab every opportunity to tell our loved ones how much they mean to us.

I started with stamping and colouring the images from the To pieces stamp set using Copic markers. I went with warm grey and really vivid pink, I love these two together. I made extra pieces of the puzzle and hearts to fill the scene. When I was done, I cut everything with the coordinating dies.

I stamped the sentiment on pink cardstock and cut it out with the Puzzle heart die. I wonder how come I have never used this die before, it is simply gorgeous!

For the background I chose a cheerful patterned paper from the Beach babe paper pad. I adhered it to a white card base and added a little smaller piece of vellum to mute the colours. I attached it with two thin strips of aqua cardstock and adhered the puzzle heart. I could hide the adhesive this way under the covered areas so it is invisible.

After popping up the bears with 3D foam tape and assembling the scene I added clear shimmer to the hearts and glossy accents to the puzzle pieces the bears hold. Aren’t they cute?

And by the way, the To pieces stamp and die bundle is at a great price now in the shop!

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and will pop in again soon. Until next time, happy crafting!

Merry mice – Lawnfawnatics 66

Hello Everyone,

I had a little crafty free time and made a card for the current Lawnfawnatics 66 challenge. I adore critters and when I got the latest Chibitronics set I had to ink up the cute mice from the Merry Mice stamp set and make a funny little scene.

I used my new Arteza coloured pencil set to colour them in, I really enjoyed how bright the colours are. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

To set the scene, I cut the Stitched scalloped rectangle frames from Knit Picky paper and also from light blue. I chose a light pattern for the floor and my favourite colourful one for the background.

I assembled the scene and stamped the sentiment in red from the Winter wavy sayings set on fog cardstock and cut it out with the Fancy Wavy banners die. I adhered it to the scene and stamped another sentiment from the Ho-ho-holidays set. I embellished the banner with some extra baubles.

I used my clear shimmer pen on the presents and ornaments and added glossy accents too. Finally the eyes I emphasized with a black glaze pen.

I will upload this project to the Lawnfawnatics 66 challenge.

I hope you enjoyed this cute little scene card and will pop in again soon.

See you,

Zsofi

Sparkly holiday wishes – Newton's Nook Designs

Hello Everyone,

I am on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog today with this sweet and sparkly Christmas card. I love glitter paper and I am on a die cutting wave nowadays as the year is ending and the days are busier than usual.

I have the Peppermint die for a while but I have not had the chance to use it. So I die cut the full circle and the candy “wings” from white glitter cardstock, and the topper from pink and blue glitter cardstocks and adhered them together.

I cut a 2 inch wide strip of Fog cardstock, matted it with a slightly wider white on and adhered the candies leaving space for the sentiment, which is from the Sentiments of the season stamp set, stamped in green.

For the background I chose a matching candy paper from Doodlebug Designs. By the way, this design can easily be adapted to birthdays too, just swap the sentiment!

I hope you enjoyed today’s quick holiday card and will pop in again tomorrow for more fun!

See you,

Zsofi

Snow Merry Christmas

Hello Everyone,

I am here with you with my weekly inspiration for Pink and Main. I brought you a clean and simple yet super cute Christmas card.

I stamped and coloured the cute snowmen from the Snow Sweet stamp set using Copic markers. I cut them out with the coordinating dies. What I love the most about Pink and Main dies apart from being pink is that they come separated. No need to cut them apart.

For the background I chose patterned paper from the Jolly paper pad. I also die cut 3 white Reverse scallop circles and stacked them together. One of the inner parts I inked up with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink and paper pieced it in the middle.

The holiday sentiment is from the Howliday stamp set, I stamped it above the snowmen with red ink and above it the Snow word from Snow Sweet.

I covered their outfit with clear shimmer and added glossy accents to the noses and ice.

I hope you liked my card today and will pop in again soon for more inspiration. See you soon,

Zsofi
