Heffy Doodle Gnomes and My Brother Scan N Cut Video

Hello everyone.

Today I'm sharing my latest video for Heffy Doodle using the NEW Gnome Matter What stamp set. To continue with the gnome theme, I grabbed the Stoney Maloney stencil for my background. The grass was cut using the NEW Grassy Lass border dies and to top it off, I added a door that I made using my Brother Scan N Cut 2.

I will link to the video I made creating this card as well as a Copic color map listing all of the Copic markers I used to color my images. I will also have a full list of supplies.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.

All you have to do is comment along the entire blog hop for your chance to win a 50 pound gift certificate to the Heffy Doodle online shop. I know what you're thinking. Wow, that's one heavy gift certificate. No, I just don't know how to make the little sign for the fancy L for British pounds. It doesn't matter! Comment along the hop to win MONEY at the Heffy Doodle online shop. Everyone understands money : )

There is also a promotion going on right now. If you spend 30 pounds in the Heffy Doodle online shop, then you will receive the Exclusive Rescue Dogs stamp set for free with your order. Even better, spend 45 and you will get the dies to go with it.

As for my card, today I'm using the NEW Crafty and Friends Heffy Cuts Word dies to create a card for a special crafty friend.

To start, I cut a piece of Night of Navy cardstock by Stampin' Up! down to 3 1/2 by 4 3/4. This is going to be a super simple background for todays card. To spruce it up a bit, I cut 6 strips of card stock from different scraps I had. I used Stampin' Up's! Petal Pink and Tempting Turquoise (retired). I also used Papertrey Ink's Aqua Mist, Pure Poppy, and Canyon Clay. To finish it up, I cut some Lawn Fawn Vanilla Malt as well. These strips where then grouped together in the center of my card panel and adhered using Lawn Fawn Glue Tube liquid adhesive. I tried to get somewhat even spacing between the strips to show a little of the navy cardstock behind it, but I didn't stress if it wasn't perfect. These pieces were eventually popped up onto a Simon Says Stamp Fog card base using white craft foam and double sided adhesive.

I then took the NEW Crafty and Friends Heffy Cuts word dies and cut them from Lawn Fawn Neutrals Woodgrain Cardstock. I cut it four times each. I layered them together using the same liquid adhesive. These funky word dies are just what I needed in my stash. I love my crafty friends and I don't have any word dies like these. I'm so excited to use these on cards to send to my online crafty friends.

The word dies were adhered together and then flat to the rainbow panel with Glue Tube adhesive.

I then took another piece of the navy cardstock and stamped one of the speech bubbles from an older Heffy Doodle set called Whatcha Sayin'. If you like this set, a brand new set called Whatcha Sayin' Now is coming out today also, so make sure you check out the release. (CLICK HERE!)

Once I had the speech bubble stamped using Distress ink in Picket Fence, yes, you heard me correct. I stamped it using Distress Ink in Picket Fence. This ink is basically white pigment ink. I sometimes use white pigment ink to heat emboss, especially when fine detail is important. The white ink helps it pop off of the page just a bit more on dark cardstocks.

Once the speech bubble and sentiment (from the same Whatcha' Sayin' stamp set, by the way) was stamped, I used Ranger White embossing powder to heat emboss the sentiment.

I used the coordinating die to cut it out and popped it up with Scotch 3M Foam adhesive.

That is it, that is my project for today's blog hop. Don't forget to comment along the hop for your chance to win a gift certificate to the Heffy Doodle online shop. I hope you get inspired along the way as well.

A Recap of Neat & Tangled's February Release Week

Hello everyone. 

Today I am doing a recap of all of the cards I posted this week for the Neat & Tangled February Release Week. Well, if you are reading this, they are now LIVE and up for purchase in the Neat & Tangled online shop. (CLICK HERE!) to visit and fill your cart with things that will bring you joy! 

Day 1: Mail Background - This week Neat & Tangled released their very first red rubber background stamp and I couldn't be more excited about the NEW product line joining the team. I love red rubber background stamps and I hope you will too. (CLICK HERE!) to read the original post.

Day 2: Jump for Joy - Let's all Jump for Joy with this adorable stamp set that just explodes with outdoor play. I love playing outside, and encouraging others to do the same is always one of my goals. I really think that this card does exactly that. And this NEW stamp set by Neat & Tangled was the key. (CLICK HERE!) to read the original post.

Day 3: Typed Sentiments - I have to say the stamp the says "no one is as entertained by us, as us" is awesome and one of my all time favorites, EVER! And the typewriter font really takes us back to another time, before the internet connected everyone, letters did, and this takes me back to the excitement of seeing something in the mailbox with your name on it, with a postmark from a friend. (CLICK HERE!) to read the original post.

Day 4: Slow & Steady - I adore the main image from this set. I have never seen anything like it and it is so fun, in a slower kinda way.  Much like the typeface in Day 3's project, the imagery here pulled me back to a simpler, and slower time in my life.  It reminds me a little bit of tortoise and the hare, but instead of racing the hare, the tortoise found a buddy more his speed, and there was no conflict at all.  Yeah- it might not make for the best story, but it makes for a fantastic stamp set image! (CLICK HERE!) to read the original post.

I hope you've enjoyed my recap of this week. Make sure you (CLICK HERE!) to visit the Neat & Tangled Blog and online store and shop until your heart is content.
