The Heffy Doodle Hey Cheese Card Video

Hello fellow card makers.

Today I am sharing a card that I made using Heffy Doodle stamps and dies. I couldn't resist the new Hello Squeakheart stamps and thats what I'm using on my project today. I also picked up a few more things from Heffy Doodle to use on today's project.

I started with a piece of Stampin' Up's! So Saffron cardstock cut down using a Stitched Rectangle die from Your Next Stamp. I brought out my Kaiser Craft Bubbly stencil and some Wild Honey Distress Oxide ink to make some cheesy background patterned paper. I ink blended a few circles scattered around the soft yellow cardstock to mimic the look of cheese.

I cut both dies from the Your Next Stamp Insta Love die set in Stampin' Up's! Very Vanilla cardstock. I cut the same dies also from Neenah 110lb. cardstock, which is what I like to use with Copic markers. The interior portions of these dies will be what I use to stamp my images on. I want it to look like a stack of old polaroid photos clothespinned to the front of my card.

I stamped my images using My Favorite Things Hybrid ink in the color Cement Gray. I wanted to try some no line copic coloring today. This ink is fairly faint and does a great job at disappearing while still allowing you to see what you are doing. I used both my Copic markers and my Faber Castell Goldfaber colored pencils to color and shade my images.

Once my images where colored, I attached them to their coordinating polaroid with tape runner adhesive and a piece of typing paper. This technique allows me to make the polaroids all one piece, which makes it easier to adhere to my card base. I popped up the first layer, the cheese panel, with black craft foam and 1/2 inch double sided tape. I adhered the rest of my panels flat with the double sided tape. The clothespin at the top is simply for show, everything is securely fastened. As a finishing touch, I added a little yellow heart from Doodlebugs Shaped Sprinkles set of Tiny Hearts. I love adding these hearts to my projects.

I cut out the Hey, Heffy Cut die from a piece of patterned paper from Fancy Pants, Park Bench paper pad. It is a black and off-white chevron pattern. I then cut out the same die a few more times from Simon Says Stamp Black cardstock. I adhered them all together with Ranger Multi Medium Matte liquid adhesive. Once it was dry I used the same liquid adhesive to adhere it to my card front. The sub-sentiment was stamped in Versamark ink and white heat embossed with Hero Arts Ultra Fine White Embossing powder. I used the super fabulous new Strips of Ease die set from Heffy Doodle to cut out my sentiment. These dies really make it easy to line up and cut a straight sentiment. I used foam tape to pop up the sub-sentiment strip in place.

Thank you for visiting my blog today,
