Hi everyone! I am over at the Heffy Doodle blog today with a quick and easy pregnancy congratulations card created by mixing and matching a few of my favourite products by Heffy Doodle.
For this card, I decided to challenge myself in a number of ways. First of all, I decided to use a pastel colour palette, which I don’t normally do. Secondly, I decided to mix and match my collection of Heffy Doodle products to bring you guys some ideas on how to get as much versatility as possible from your supplies. And last but not least, I tried to keep my card design fairly clean. I think I more or less managed all three! What do you guys think?
To create the stripey background, I used our “Stitched strips of ease” Heffy cuts. The little eggs on the background are from the “Honey Bunny Boo” Stamp and Diesets, whilst the little chick poking out of the egg and the small sentiment “Heard you are eggspecting” comes from the “Eggcellent News” Stamp and Diesets. The “Congrats” sentiment is one of our standalone word Heffy cuts. For that big word die cut, I stacked a few layers of white cardstock, pressed my Versamark ink pad on top of them, sprinkled them with some Liquid Platinum embossing powder from Ranger and hit them with my heat tool.
I think this would make a perfect card for any friend who might be expecting and doesn’t yet know the sex of their baby! Do you have kids? Did you (or would you!) chose to find out or was it a surprise? Let us know in the comments section below. Until next time, happy Heffy Doodling!

Hello Heffy Doodlers! Dennice here with a final reminder that today will be your last chance to snap up the free “Mewniverse Stamp Set” which we are shipping out with EVERY and ALL pre-orders of any Release 3 products placed on the Heffy Doodle store.
To create today’s card, I started off by making a watercolour galaxy background (if you’ve never tried this, you totally should! This technique is basically fool-proof!) I then stamped a bunch of kitties on my background using my Versamark embossing ink and covered them with some liquid platinum embossing powder. I did two kitties at a time in order to avoid overlapping them. Then I filled up the smaller gaps left between them by stamping and embossing the little wool ball included in the set. I loved the look of the liquid platinum kitties against my galaxy background. They looked like kitty constellations!
Next up, I die cut a couple of our new word dies “Hey” and “Baby” from some plain, white card stock (by the way, did you know that Lesley herself actually hand-lettered all the word dies in our latest release? How cool is that!) I stacked them on top of each other and pressed them against my Versamark ink pad. Once they were fully covered with this sticky ink, I added a thick layer of that same liquid platinum embossing powder and hit them with my heat tool. I repeated the process a couple of times to give my stacked, die-cut words a nice metallic look.
I then stamped out my sentiment “You’re the best in the whole mewniverse” from the same stamp set on to some plain white card stock. I stamped the first part of the sentiment in black and heat embossed the second half with the same liquid platinum embossing powder. I cut out my sentiment strip with the fabulous “Stitched Strips of Ease” dies and adhered it flat on to my card front. I could then move on to the colouring. I coloured my kitty and basket with my Copics and fussy cut them out leaving that magical little white border that makes them look like die cuts. I used some double sided foam squares to adhere them on to my card and… voilà!
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project and that it has reminded you to place your pre-orders quickly to snatch our mewnique Release 3 freebie stamp set today!

Hello crafty friends! Welcome to the Bastel Traum Challenge #61, which is also my very first post of 2018. I’m really excited to kicking off a new year with a Bastel Traum Challenge post. 2017 was a hectic year, juggling home, work and crafty commitments, and my monthly Bastel Traum posts helped me keep my blog active and make time for crafting, even when things got really nuts! So I really look forward to another year of playing along with the Bastel Traum Design Team and with all of you out there who choose to play along with us each month!
The subject of this month’s challenge is “Love / Valentine’s Day”. For this challenge, I put together a tag/card using one of the images I coloured during last year’s Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge (by the way, Kathy Racoosin is launching her next Colouring Challenge today, so stay tuned for that post also, which will stay pinned to the top of my blog for the duration of the Challenge).
Are you making any Valentine’s Day cards? Share them with us over at the Bastel Traum Challenge Blog for your chance to win a 15 chf certificate to the Bastel Traum Online Shop (they ship worldwide!) This month’s challenge will run until 15 Feb. 2018 at 8:45 am GMT+2. Until next time!
