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,

Perfect Combos – Magical holidays

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle. Christmas is so close and I am sure most of you are busy with wrapping presents and planning the menu. It may turn out that you need a tag or a little card still, and today’s design is perfect for both: quick and easy and looks cute. Let me show you.

First I stamped and coloured one of the angels from My Little Angel. I went with purples this time but it would look pretty in any colour. I used the coordinating dies to cut her out.

Then I created my card base: I die cut 3 stars with the largest Stitched Stars die: 2 from heavy weight white cardstock and one from a pretty patterned paper (Whimsy Stamps Blurry Flurries). On one of the stars I die cut a window with a Fancy Nancy Frames die. I adhered the patterned paper star under the one with the window and created a fold line half an inch from the top on the other white star. I added glue to that little flap and adhered it to the front panel. In this way I have my own star shaped card base. So easy and eye-catching.

The sentiment is from Holiday Sentiment Duos, heat embossed in silver on a purple cardstock strip. Before adhering the sentiment and popping up the angel with thick 3D foam strip, I went over the edges of the star and the window cutline too with Stardust Stickles. It gives a festive look and takes this simple design to another level. I used the same glue on the glory too. A touch of clear shimmer on the wings finished it off.

TIP: If you want to create a tag, just punch a hole on the top and use sparkling twine. You can also turn this design into a shaker card if you adhere the patterned paper star with foam strips. That would look awesome too.

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!

See you soon,

25 Days of Christmas Tags – Heffy Doodle

Hello Everyone,

I am back with a fun set of tags as part of Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event. It is a fun initiative to share with you tag ideas throughout a whole month, focusing on a specific brand each day.

Today is all about Heffy Doodle and I created some classic looking ones, perfect for last minute crafting too.

For the base I used the new Essentials Mini die set which is available individually or part of the Heffy Doodle Die cutting Machine Bundle too and the Heffy Doodle shop. I die cut the cute little tag die from kraft cardstock, 10 times so I could have a bunch of tags at once.

While I was at die cutting I cut some pine trees from olive green cardstock and the tree trunks from dark brown using the Forest Builder die set. I used my mini die cut machine for this, it is so much easier and faster when I am cutting plenty of small parts. I love it!

I assembled the tags using liquid glue. For the sentiment I used the Classic Sentiments stamp set and stamped Merry Christmas with red ink on white cardstock. I cut it down to a very thin strip and adhered them under the trees.

To bring these tags to another level I adorned them with Gold and Scarlet Red Crystals from Studio Katia and added green or red twine to them. Aren’t they lovely?

I hope you enjoyed today’s tag inspiration and will pop in again soon for more holiday fun!

See you,

25 Days of Christmas Tags – Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello Everyone,

I am so excited to be part of the 10th Annual 25 Days of Christmas Tags event hosted by Tracey McNeely! I love this event, not just because it is jam packed with inspiration but there are amazing Sponsors and prizes to win.

Each day a new brand is in focus, today we are all featuring Newton’s Nook Designs. Here is my tag:

I used the super cute puppy from Christmas puppies, coloured him with Copics and cut him out with the coordinating dies.

Then I die cut the Snow globe shaker frame from white cardstock 3 times, the backing from patterned paper and the bottom from silver metallic cardstock. I used the backing die to cover up the twine which I adhered to the back of the snow globe. In this way there is place for a message and it can work as an ornament too.

The sentiment I die cut from silver sparkle cardstock and adhered it at an angle.

As a finishing touch I covered the present and the scarf with clear shimmer and added glossy accens to the nose and the cany cane. The eyes I made shiny with a black glaze pen. I love how it turned out, I cannot wait to make more!

Make sure to visit Tracey’s blog for more inspiration and I hope you play along!

See you soon with more fun projects!

Heffy Doodle and Studio Katia Blog Hop

Hello Everyone,

I am thrilled to be part of a wonderful collaboration Blog Hop with two of my favourite companies. Heffy Doodle and Studio Katia have teamed up to bring you a ton of new inspiration. And there are prizes to win! YAY!

I have 2 birthday cards for you today, let’s dive in the details!

CARD 1

As always I started with stamping and colouring the crocodile from the Happy Snappy Crocs from Heffy Doodle using Copic markers and cut it out with the coordinating die.

I used the Dotted Shaker Tag 2 die from Studio Katia to cut an aqua, yellow and a pink tag. From the yellow one I cut the grass with a Grassy Lass border die from Heffy Doodle. While I was at die cutting I also cut a piece of vellum using the rectangle from Studio Katia Dotted Patterns Set 1.

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!

CARD 2

On my second card I went underwater 🙂 I stamped and coloured images from the Heffy Doodle Shellabrate and Oceans of Love sets and used their coordinating dies to cut them out.

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.

GIVEAWAY

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:

25 Days of Christmas Tags – Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello Everyone,

I am so excited to join the sweet Tracey McNeely this year again in her 25 Days of Christmas tags event! Today we are all featuring stamps and dies from Newton’s Nook Designs. Here is what I created with the cutest deer from Festive Fawns:

I stamped and coloured the critter with Copic markers and cut it out with its coordinating die.

For the tag itself I used the Fancy Edges Tag die set. I cut the base from white cardstock and from patterned paper (Doodlebug). I cut the topper from green cardstock and a snowbank plus the reinforcer from white glitter cardstock. For the snowbank I used the Sea border die set.

After assembling the tags, I white heat embossed the sentiment above the deer.

A couple of white gel pen dots and a bit of glossy accents on the nose and bow made it even cuter. For the berries I used Nuvo drops. The eyes are shining because of the black glaze pen. I finished them with thick green twine from Tonic.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration. If you want to play along, please read the guidelines on Tracey’s blog. There are amazing sponsors!

See you soon with more fun projects!

Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release – Day 4

Hello Everyone,

We reached the last day of the Holiday Release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs, but don’t be sad, the sweetest we saved for last. I was dreaming of a stamp set with a kitty family for long and now my wishes came true! The Newton’s Christmas Kittens is the perfect family stamp for the holidays. And the 2 minis are just create easy and fantastic tags!

CARD

For my card I stamped and coloured the image with Copic markers and die cut it with the coordinating die. I created santa hats to all the cats and dressed them up for the holiday.

I die cut a stitched rounded rectangle die from the Frames and flags die set from white cardstock and used the same die to cut a piece of green patterned paper for the bottom of it.

I adhered the cats and stamped the sentiment in red on the top left corner. It is one long sentiment but with partial inking I managed to stamp it in 2 rows.

For the background I chose a golden foiled patterned paper from my stash and popped up the focal panel with 3D foam squares at an angle. It is more playful this way.

I felt I needed something in the right upper corner too,so I white heat embossed another sentiment on a small rounded tag die from the Tag times two die set, which I die cut from gold cardstock. I added a red bow on the top so it looks like a Christmas ornament.

The finishing touches I couldn’t leave behind, a lot of clear shimmer was applied on the presents and glossy accents on the ribbon.

To make it super fun, I used a Marvy Snow Marker on the caps and puffed them up with my heat tool. I love the texture!

TAGS

to showcase the 2 mini sets I decided to create tags using the Fancy Edges Tag die set.

I cut the base from patterned paper (Doodlebug) and from vellum.

On the vellum I adhered a small snowbank cut with the Land border die from white glitter cardstock. I silver heat embossed the sentiments on the vellum directly.

To embellish the tags, I cut a scalloped topper from red cardstock and a white reinforcer. I attached the two tags together and used chunky red twine to finish them.

Of course glossy accents I had to add to the presents and I also used some glitter on the santa hat.

Trick or treat? – Pink and Main

Hello Everyone,

I am here again with a cute treat card for Halloween. I used my favourite design which I love for smaller images: tag on a card. All goodies are from Pink and Main.

I started with stamping the images several times from the Trick or treat stamp set using Versafine Onyx black ink and used clear embossing powder to heat set it. I love the raised edges when I colour with water based markers, as it helps staying within the lines. I used Arteza Brush markers to add such vibrant colours and then I die cut everything with the coordinating dies.

I also white heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock and also die cut it. I love when sentiments have coordinating dies!

For the tag I chose the Arch tag die set and cut a purple and a black one and layered them on top of each other. Arranged the images and added some candy cane twine.

This time the card base is black and I added a patterned paper from the Not to spooky paper pad which I cut down to size with a Stitched Rectangle 2 die.

A bit of glossy accent on the lollipop finished this cute card.

Hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and you will pop in again soon for more. Till next time, happy crafting!

Newton’s Nook Designs August Release – Day 3

Hello Everyone,

I cannot believe that we are half way through the August release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs! After some coffee and some Fall images we are introducing cute mice playing outside enjoying autumn weather. Autumn mice is a playful and adorable set which comes with coordinating dies.

I started with colouring all the images in the set, I even coloured some extra leaves as I knew I would build some Fall scenes which needed plenty of leaves. When I had everything cut out I was already sure I will end up with more than just one card.

CARD #1

For my first scene I die cut the Lawn Fawn Leafy Tree Backdrop Landscape die 3 times from dark brown cardstock. I also cut some grass and hills with the land border dies from yellow and kraft cardstocks. To make the images pop I used the Lawn Fawn stitched clouds backdrop on aqua cardstock.

I assembled the scene on an A2 sized white card base and layered the tree frame.

The sentiment I stamped on a grey banner (Frames and flags die set) and tucked it under the last frame.

I added the images and adhered a couple of leaves on the tree and on the grass too. I added white gel pen highlights, emphasized the eyes and noses with a black glaze pen and added glossy accents on the scarf and stems of the pumpkins.

CARD #2

My next project is a 4 bar card, where I used a couple of patterned paper from Lawn Fawn as a background for my mini scene. I used the same scene building elements as on the A2 sized card just this time I made a 3 layered dimensional frame using the Framework die set.

I stamped another sentiment from the set with brown ink directly on the background and popped up the mini scene with 3D foam squares.

I covered the cap of the acorn with glossy accents and used a black glaze pen on the eyes and nose of the mouse.

TAG

And last but not least I created a little tag using the Fancy edges tag die set. I like to make my tags thicker by adding an extra piece on the back. In this way I ensure the pretty finished look also.

I used some sturdy twine and yet another gorgeous sentiment from the Autumn mice set.

Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Day 3

Hello Everyone,

It is Day 3 of the May Release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs with a very busy Newton. He knows that life is about some hard work too 🙂 The new fun set is called Newton Cleans up and it has hilarious sentiments. It also comes with coordinating dies (sold separately). All new products will be available on 17/05!

Here is my card:

This time I made the background first using Distress Oxide inks and a Life Changing brush from Picket Fence Studios. I applied Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch in a light layer directly on a top folding card base.

Then I added more ink through the Cascading Stars stencil and before removing it, I sprayed it with Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz for a subtle sparkle.

Then I coloured Newton with the washing using similar Copic colours to match the background. I can totally relate to this image, having a sporty husband and 2 little kids, washing is the story of my life 😀

I die cut a white tag using the Fancy Edges tag die set and also the reinforcer from blue cardstock. While I was at it, I die cut 2 banners: a black and a blue violet one using the Frames and Flags die set.

I assembled the tag, stamped a sentiment with black on it, popped up the image with 3D foam squares and added black and white twine. After attaching it to the card base, I embellished it with some sequins from Simon Says Stamp.
