It’s the Time of Year for some “Holiday Cheer”, Christmas is here!

This post appeared on the Heffy Doodle blog on 22 November 2018 and features a holiday and/or Christmas card using Heffy Doodle products, old and new.

Hello Heffy Doodlers! Dennice here with a project full of holiday and Christmas cheer using my favourite set from our last holiday release: “Elfish Antics”. I hope your holiday cards and Christmas crafts are well underway! As for mine, I seem to be running quite late! I put it down to the fact that my daughter is moving to a new nursery  school soon and we’ve been spending some time at the new school and giving her a chance to familiarise herself with her new environment.

Last week, when she first walked into her new classroom, her face light up as she caught sight of all the “new” toys she’d get to play with… including a little jack-in-the-box. And that’s exactly where my inspiration for today’s card came from.

To create this cheery holiday card I pulled out my favourite Heffy Doodle Christmas sets of all times: the Elfish Antics stamp set and coordinating dies.  I also added a few additional Heffy Doodle products to the mix: the Elfing Christmas Words sentiment stamp set, Stitched Rectangle dies (perfect for layering rectangles on to a standard size card. Choose between our metric/European or A2 American/Imperial card sizes).

Have you created any holiday and/or Christmas projects using this set recently? If so, make sure to tag us on social media. We love to see what you create with your Heffy Doodle goodies. Until next time… happy holiday crafting!

Veggie Congratulations to an Auber-Genius!

This post appeared on the Heffy Doodle blog on 31 October 2018 and features a congratulations card using some Heffy Doodle products, old and new.

Hello Heffy Doodlers! Dennice here with a “veggie congratulations” card to that “aubergenius” in our lives. To create the background pattern on my card, I used the Basket Case Stencil from our latest release, placed it over some kraft cardstock and used my white pigment ink and an ink dauber over it.

I then reached out for the Veggie Patch Clear Stamp Set and coordinating dies, also from our latest release. I stamped out my veggies and coloured them up using my Copic markers. (I have to say, this is one of my favourite Heffy Doodle sets so far since the shapes of the veggies really lend themselves for some fun and easy colouring.)

To create my main sentiment, “Congrats“, I covered a piece of white cardstock in golden embossing powder and then cut out the sentiment using my Congrats Heffy Cuts die. I then stamped out my sub-sentiment with Versamark ink and used some of the same gold embossing powder over it to match my main sentiment. Last but not least, I framed my little scene using our new Stitched Rectangle Dies (available in Imperial/USA A2 card-size as well as Metric/EU card-size).

And that’s about it for today’s congratulations card! I hope you will like this bit of inspiration I’ve brought you today and that you’ll remember to tag us on social media so we can also be inspired by your beautiful creations using our Heffy Doodle goodies. Until next time!

Heffy Doodle Release 5 Blog Hop- Two for one cardmaking!

Hello Heffy Doodlers! And welcome to another wonderful release by Heffy Doodle Stamps. Our fifth release is full of crafty goodness and it’s just in time for your holiday projects too, so make sure to check it out! You should have arrived here from amazing Franci’s blog and your next stop will be lovely Jessica ‘s blog. But before you move on, please remember to leave me some crafty love on the comments below by 11:59 PM PST on 22nd October 2018. A random winner will be selected to win a £50 gift certificate to the Heffy Doodle store. The winner will be announced on the Heffy Doodle blog on 24th October 2018.

For today’s project I’m bringing you some two-in-one cardmaking inspiration with what is probably my favourite item of this new release: our Metric Stitched Rectangles Dies (EU Size). I’m certain this is going to be a total hit among card-makers in Europe, as it is the first of its kind. The standard card size in the US is A2 (the equivalent of a letter-size paper folded in half twice). In Europe we tend to use A4-size paper instead of letter-size, and the largest rectangle in this die set is the equivalent of an A4-sized paper folded in half twice, which makes our standard A6 European card size! As if that wasn’t enough, this set has stitching on both sides of the cut line, giving you beautiful stitching detail on your positive and negative pieces.

To create this card I used the second largest rectangle in the set to cut out a window from my teal card base. I then adhered a piece of acetate behind that window for a very special effect. After that, I used the positive pieces cut out with all the smaller rectangles in the set and adhered them one on top of the other on the inside of my card, behind my acetate window. The smallest piece, however, I glued on top of the acetate for that extra umph! The little birdie and the sentiment are from our very popular release four set called “Wingman” which I’m sure you all know by now.

My second card project for this blog hop is a birthday card which was very quick and easy to create, as I did so using the little frame pieces which I had left when cutting out the rectangles for my previous project. The “happy” and “birthday” Heffy Cuts dies are also from our latest release and they are sure to be a versatile addition to your collection, since they can be paired up with our new “winter” and “wishes” Heffy Cuts dies for a bunch of different sentiment combos (happy birthday, birthday wishes, happy winter, winter wishes, winter birhtday wishes, etc.).

So that’s it from me for today. I leave you with one last photo to wrap up this post. Please remember to tag us on social media when you put your new release goodies to good use, as we love to see what you create and often find inspiration in your work too! Until next time… happy hopping! Next stop: Jessica’s blog.

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!
