For today’s hop, I have two teacher thank you cards, which would be perfect for this school-year end. I created the first card using our “Teacher’s Pet” Stamps and dies, our fabulous “Teach Me Words” coordinating stamp set (so versatile, I love it!), and our new “Teacher” Heffy Cuts die (hand-lettered by Lesley herself!)

I’m thinking this card will have to go to my son’s teacher, since she’s done an amazing job with the kids on their very first year of school!

For my second project, I also used our new “Big Bold Words” stamp set. This is actually one of my favourite sets from our new release and I’ll be sharing a post soon using it to show you just how versatile it can be.

I’m thinking this card will be for my son’s teaching assistant. I’m not a teacher or a teaching assistant, but I am sure that the sentiments “Today’s the day!” and “Hooray!” are accurate portrayals of their mood on the last day of school :o)

I’m stopping here, since I know you’ll all be eager to check out the remaining stops on our hop. Sit back and enjoy all the crafty inspiration we have in store for you and remember to leave a bit of crafty love at each stop for a chance to win  a £50 voucher to the Heffy Doodle store. Until next time!

 

 

Pregnancy Congratulations Card, feat. Heffy Doodle

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 Die sets, whilst the little chick poking out of the egg and the small sentiment “Heard you are eggspecting”  comes from the “Eggcellent News” Stamp and Die sets. 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!

 

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!
