Hello crafty friends! Today I bring you: not one, not two, but three cards as part of the monthly challenge over at the Bastel Traum challenge blog. This month the Design Team was given a colour scheme to work with and it was just SO gorgeous, I couldn’t limit myself to one project!
Next up, I mixed and matched 3 different stamp and die sets by Lawn Fawn (Big Scripty Words, Home Sweet Home and Little Bundle) and a gorgeous new stamp set from Altenew (Crafty Friends) for one of my sentiments. I stamped them using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, which I knew wouldn’t bleed when I coloured over it with my (alcohol based) Copic markers, before I went ahead and die cut them using my matching dies and beloved Sizzix Big Shot machine. I fussy cut all images for which I didn’t have dies.
I adhered the more intricate images using my glue pen and for the larger ones I went for a few foam squares. And for a finishing touch, a stroke of Wink of Stella over my images. Here’s the process video:
Hello crafty friends! Today I would like to bring you some exciting information about a brand new stamp and die company called Heffy Doodle, by my crafty friend Lesley Oman (Hungry Heffy Crafts). The company is being launched through Kickstarterand their first release will include 4 stamp sets with 4 coordinating die sets and a very special 5th stamp set for all of us interactive card-makers.
Lesley was kind enough to send me a sample set to play with. It’s called “Unbearable Without You” and these are all the cute little images it includes:
So I paired up these cute images with my box card die set by The Stamps of Life to create an awesome crafty explosion with the help of some acetate strips and a LOT of glue dots! Here is what the outside of my card looks like:
And here’s a close up of the inside:
I had lots of fun playing with this set, as both the stamps and dies are top quality. I’ll be playing with them some more throughout the month of July in order to support their Kickstarter campaign. So please stay tuned on my blog and YouTube channel over the next few days. And most importantly, please remember to stop by their Kickstarter page and websiteon Monday, July 3rd 2017 to check out their full release and pre-order your sets!

For those of you who don’t know it, I love sea turtles. I don’t get to scuba dive very often and I’m not terribly adventurous (meaning a 15 metre / 50 feet dive is plenty enough for me!), but my husband and I enjoy it every time we get a chance. Last time we visited the stunning Mayan Riviera, in Mexico, we had the privilege of diving with wild sea turtles. They are some of the most beautiful creatures I have ever encountered, truly majestic, and I hope the people out there who hunt them and hurt them will realize that before it’s too late. In the mean time, my “water” (or rather, “under water”) card is my little tribute to this beautiful endangered species!
I hope you enjoy my video tutorial as much as I enjoyed creating it for you and that you’ll play along with the design team at the Bastel Traum Challenge blog for a chance to grow your craft supplies collection. Until next time!
