Best in the Mewniverse – Galaxy Background Card

[This post appeared on the Heffy Doodle blog on 31 January 2018, and I’m now republishing it here. Sorry for the delay!]

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!

Valentine’s Day Card – Bastel Traum Challenge #61

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).

The stamped image is from JM Creation and I coloured it using my colour pencils. At the start of the last Colouring Challenge I exchanged a few stamped images with my friend Nicole, from the Bastel Traum DT, and this was one of the ones she sent me. Both the Outside In Stitched Heart Stackable Dies (red heart) and the Lacy Heart Stackable Dies (white heart) are by Lawn Fawn. The tag die is by Neat and Tangled, and the sentiments are from Heffy Doodle‘s “Beary Big Heart” Stamp Set.

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!

Today’s project is an an extra special Christmas card, since I created it on a “Come Craft with Me” live YouTube session last night over at my friend Hungry Heffy Crafts’ YouTube Channel. Lesley is the creative genius behind Heffy Doodle, the brand of stamps and dies I used to create this cutsie little last-minute Christmas card (which reads “Be a little naughty” on the inside).

Thanks for sharing my crafty journey with each like, comment and heart here, on IG and over on my YouTube channel! I wish you all a very happy holiday season and may 2018 bring you all the health, happiness and crafty supplies necessary for it to be a craft-astic year!
