Heffy Doodle and Simon Says Stamp First “STAMPTEMBER” Exclusive Set!

Hello Heffy Doodlers! It’s release day for the Heffy Doodle and Simon Says Stamp exclusive 2018 Stamptember set, HOORAY! Lesley has designed an absolute beauty for Heffy Doodle’s first Stamptember set (perfect for fall/autumn and winter projects in particular, but not limited to them!)

As you can see here, the set includes three little critter images (scroll down to the bottom of this post to check it out): a squirrel, a raccoon (Lesley’s favourite animal, by the way!) and a reindeer, along with lots of autumn/fall and wintery accessories for them to hold or to help you create your scenes.

I decided to use the little squirrel for my card today given that squirrels are probably my  favourite critters. (BTW, full credit for this card idea goes to my crafty friend and sister-in-law Harriet. We were brainstorming together last weekend and she was the one who suggested I use a little umbrella to shelter my squirrel from the falling autumn leaves. Thank goodness Heffy Doodle’s “Beary Big Heart” stamp set includes a perfectly-sized one!)

For my sentiment strip I used the largest strip from Heffy Doodle’s “Stitched Strips of Ease” Heffy Cuts dies and I stamped the sentiment “I love you”, followed in the inside of my card by “You won’t be-leaf how much” on one line. Just below that I also stamped the sub-sentiment “(That’s a lot!)”.

I’m sure this set is going to be a total hit and I can’t wait to see what you guys create with it. Remember to tag Heffy Doodle on social media so we can continue to admire your beautiful creations. And before I say goodbye, my heart goes out to Lesley for letting me be a part of this adventure and to Heidi over at SSS for Stamptember and all the crafty joy, anticipation and most of all excitement that surrounds it! Until next time :o)

 

Interactive Jungle-Themed Card Feat. Lots of Heffy Doodle Goodies (Old and New!)

Hello Crafty Friends! Today I’m bringing you a video tutorial which I published a little while back on the Heffy Doodle Stamps Blog and YouTube Channel.

In this quick video tutorial I will show you how to recreate this ad-roar-able jungle-themed interactive card using some of my favourite Heffy Doodle products, old and new.

If you are anything like me, I know that you are here for the video, so I’ll keep my story short and sweet. I simply ask that you let me know what occasion you would use this card for if you were to recreate it. This one went to one of my good friends who just landed an awesome job.

Until next time, happy Heffy Doodling guys!

 

Happy Birthday Dear @HungryHeffyCrafts!

Hello Crafty Friends! Today I’ve got a surprise post for my dear friend Lesley (@HungryHeffyCrafts on social media and the beautiful creative mind behind Heffy Doodle Stamps, for which I am honoured to design).

To create this cute little birthday card, I decided to pull out my pattern paper collection (which doesn’t actually get as much love as it should!), my Prismacolor pencils and a few of my favourite Heffy Doodle goodies, which you may recognise!

The little bear holding the heart is from our “Very Big Heart” stamp set. I coloured it in with colour pencils and added some Ranger Glossy Accents to it. Left it to dry over night for good measure! I also stamped two sentiments from our “Watcha Sayin'” stamp set and die cut them out using a stitched circle die set. The little hearts behind the bear are from Lawn Fawn.

Not much else to say for this card apart from to wish Lesley a wonderful birthday on behalf of all the gals in the Design Team. We all love you Les, we love the work you do and we are honoured to know you and to help bring your designs to life every day! May your day be full of love (and new crafty goodies!) Bear hugs, your team!

A “Just Because” Card (and a confession from a Netflix crafter!)

(This blog post appeared on the Heffy Doodle blog on 9 July 2018)

Hello Heffy Doodlers! And welcome back to the Heffy Doodle blog, where you can find tons of inspiration to put your collection of Heffy Doodle goodies to good use!  Today I’m bringing you what I call I “just because” card which could be used for a number of occasions: from a simple summer hello to our crafty friends across the miles, to an encouragement card for a friend recovering from one of life’s rougher rides.

To put together this little project I used the Yappy Happy Mail stamp set (there are coordinating dies for it too!), and two of my favourite Heffy Cuts word dies: “sending” and “love“. Once I had die cut my words, I applied some Glossy Accents (which you can no pick up at our store, too!) to give it that puffy sticker look. The little butterfly stamps I used as finishing touches are from our “Hunny Bunny Boo” stamp set

(“Suits” spoiler alert!) And now for confession time! If I was to do this card again, I would most likely use my cloud stencil, a blue distress ink and my ink blender to add a cloudy background to my card (just like Cassie did on this project). However, the day I made this card I had “Suits” playing on the background. Unfortunately for my card, Rachel had just kissed Logan and I was so enthralled with the plot that I started merrily adhering away my images and forgot about my clouds! Still, I love my card and I think the white background helps the sentiment pop. Has this ever happened to any of you?! Confession time ladies!!! Let us know in the comments section below. Until next time, happy heffy doodling!

 

Celebrating Heffy Doodle 1st birthday + June Release

Hello Heffy Doodlers! And thanks for joining us for this amazing first birthday celebration. Heffy Doodle is one year old and it’s all thanks to you!  We’ve got TONS of inspiration for you today and an awesome line-up (full list at the bottom of this post). Plus, what’s a blog hop without a prizeTwo lucky Heffy Doodlers will receive a £50 voucher to the Heffy Doodle online shop, so please leave us some crafty love at each stop in order to qualify. And if you’re not our lucky winner this time, remember you can still receive 20% off all orders placed on the Heffy Doodle store, by entering the discount code: HeffyBirthday2u (valid June 13th -17th 2018). You should have arrived here from Angelica Conrad‘s blog and your next stop is the amazing Sandy Allnock‘s blog. 

And since it wouldn’t be a birthday celebration without a birthday card, the first project I want to share with you today is this quick-and-easy birthday card I created using our new “Big Bold Words” stamp set.

This has got to be one of my favourite sets in our latest June release, since it allows for some easy-peasey, quick-and-easy cards. Just reach for your favourite pattern paper, stamp your big bold sentiment, add a couple of sequins and… voilà!

For my second project, I combined two of our new sets: the “Yappy Happy Mail” stamps and dies, along with our “Everyday Sentiment Duos” stamps. This last set is also brilliant for stamping inside your cards. 

Isn’t this the perfect set for all of our crafty friends, near and far? I mean, who doesn’t love a mailbox/postbox, right!?

And last but not least, I’ve got a “Just because” card which I created using, once again, our “Big Bold Words” stamp set. The only difference is that, instead of using pattern paper, this time I created my own using a Waffle Flower Stamps set. You could basically do this with any background stamps in your collection, too!

And that’s all from me. We have such an amazing line-up and so many wonderful stops for you, I’m keeping it short and sweet. Please be sure to leave me a comment below for a chance to win. I’d love to hear which one of my three projects is your favourite! Until next time, happy hopping and thanks for making this first year so wonderful for all of us at Heffy Doodle!
