Heffy Doodle Release Blog Hop!



Hey there, Heffy Doodlers!

Welcome to our blog hop!

We are so excited to share some inspiring projects with you today. This release is full of so many fantastic products, and it's impossible to choose a favorite!

One product I was especially excited about was the Blooming Marvelous stamp set. It's Heffy Doodle's first floral set, and it's so versatile and cute!

So let's get right to the card. It's a really easy one to mass produce, and it's all one-layer!


I arranged the floral images on to acrylic blocks, and then stamped them in a wreath pattern, going in an oval shape around the center of the card, being sure to leave room in the middle for a sentiment. The best tip for making a wreath card, is to make a basic oval or circle outline, and THEN fill in the wreath with more images. 



I used several different dye inks from Catherine Pooler Designs, as they provide great coverage for solid stamps like these floral and leaf images. 

After the wreath was finished, I stamped a sentiment from the Hello Everyone set. I then trimmed down the cardstock to 4 inches x. 5.25 inches and glued it on to a black cardstock panel. 

Now, because you can't write on black cardstock, unless you use a white gel pen, I went ahead and used a cut and scored 4.25 x 5.5 inch card base, and glued the black floral panel on to my white card base to finish everything off!



Now let's get to the hop details!

Kelly Martin - You are here!



Thanks so much for joining us today, and happy hopping! 

Well Goodness Gracious!

Welcome, crafty friends!

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I promise I will make it quick!

Just wanted to tell you about something SUPER AWESOME that hit the shop this week!


Honeybee Stamps has teamed up with WOW to create an exclusive trio of embossing powders!! I love these colors so much and the combinations you can create with them are endless!!

I created this card today with very minimal supplies, so let's get started!

Trim down a piece of black cardstock to 4.25 x 5.5 inches and glue it on to a white cut and scored 4.25 x 5.5 inch card base and set it aside. 

Next, cut down a piece of vellum to 4 x 5.25 inches. Don't worry about prepping your vellum with any anti-static materials because the WOW embossing powder already contains anti-static properties in it! Ink up your Zen Bouquet background stamp with Versamark ink and then stamp it on to your vellum piece. 



Cover your vellum piece with white embossing powder and then heat set it to melt the powder. Turn the embossed vellum piece over and apply liquid adhesive on the areas where the embossing is so that the adhesive won't show up when you flip it back over! 

Lay/adhere the vellum piece on to your card base and then let it dry. 

Using the Goodness Gracious die set, cut out the "gracious" word out of white cardstock and ink it up with Versamark ink as well. Cover it with the BEE Sweet powder and heat set it to melt the powder. Glue that on to your card base, and then you only have two elements left!



Ink up a piece of scrap cardstock with Versamark and then apply the BEE Kind powder. Heat set it to melt the powder and then set it aside.

Stamp your sentiment phrase from the Goodness Gracious stamp set on to a white cardstock strip, trim it down, and then glue it on to your blue glittered cardstock that you just made! Trim it down to the right size strip for your card and then glue it down. I mounted mine with foam tape for some added dimension, but you can make it all the same layer if you're feeling a little more simple!

Now step back and admire your work!!  

Thanks again for stopping by today and BEE SURE to check out these new embossing powders! They're the bees knees!!

Ramen Love With You!

Hey Friends!

I'm popping up here with a quick post to talk about my last card two cards that I created while I was guesting for Sweet N' Sassy Stamps this month!

I am a huge sucker for a cute food doodle stamp set, and I love this one called Punny Love.

This card was pretty simple, and it just involved putting together multiple panels!




I started with creating an alcohol ink panel on Yupo paper and then trimmed it down to 4.25 x 5.5 inches before gluing it down to a cut and scored 4.25 x 5.5 inch card base.

I then chose a few other pieces of patterned paper that I had in my stash, trimmed them down to various sizes, and glued them down to the base in a staggered layout to give some visual interest since I knew the main image panel would be pretty simple.


I stamped one of the food images on to a piece of bristol cardstock, colored it with prismacolor pencils and then stamped the sentiment below the image with black ink.



I trimmed down the panel and then glued it down to the rest of the card base to finish everything off! 

For the next card, I did a fun little messy watercolor look that's quite easy to achieve!


I turned my stamps over so that the backside was visible, colored them with distress markers, and then sprayed them with water before stamping them down on to my watercolor paper. I heat set them just a little bit, and then did the second step.


I turned the stamps over so that they were facing the "right" direction, inked them up with the matching color of distress ink, and then stamped them down. I used a water brush to soften the lines a little bit, and then stamped and embossed the sentiment.



I trimmed down my watercolor paper to a 4x4 inch square panel and then mounted it with foam before gluing it down to a cut and scored 4.25x4.25 inch square card base. 

The card was looking just a bit unfinished to me, so I pulled out a black pen and then just doodled the black border across all four edges. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today! If you haven't already, I encourage you to check out Sweet N' Sassy Stamps and their fantastic products! They have some SUPER cute stamp sets and great things to offer a variety of crafting styles!
