Heffy Doodle June 2018 Release Blog Hop



Hello fellow card makers.

Today is an exciting day. We are celebrating the Heffy Doodle's NEW June 2018 Release. This release is so AWESOME. I think Lesley did a great job. I love everything about it, but if I had to pick a favorite, then I would totally pick the Shellabrate stamp set which is the NEW freebie with a certain purchase amount. It has the cutest little turtle and a heart that you can stamp right on his back to make a little turtle heart tattoo. Its the cutest!

One Lucky winner will receive a voucher equal to $50 GBP ($66.44 USD) to the Heffy Doodle store. Leave a comment on each hop to qualify. Winner will be announced on Friday, June 8th on the Heffy Doodle Blog. 



For my hop project, I'm using the NEW Teacher's pet stamp set and Teach Me Words stamp set. I've also incorporated the NEW Numicon stencil.

I started with a piece of Neenah 110 lb cardstock cut to 3 1/2 by 4 3/4 and the Numicon stencil taped securely to my Tonic Easy Clean Mat with Thermoweb Purple Tape. I used Distress Oxide Inks in Candied Apple, Wild Honey, Twisted Citron, and Cracked Pistachio blended with ink daubers through the stencil. I used all of the colors in a circle patterned blending to the middle. That piece was then set aside to dry.



I used the My Favorite Things Jumbo Peek A Boo Window die set to cut an aperture through the front panel and then made into a shaker window. I used some of the smaller stamps in the Teacher's Pet stamp set like, the A+ and the 2+2 and the ABC stamp. I inked them with Hero Arts Wet Cement ink in various places on the front. I did use Taylored Expressions Cherry Pop to ink up the A+ (like the teachers do). I then stamped the "Best Teacher Ever" sentiment from the Teach Me Words stamp set. I used the same Distress inks from the background. If you would like to see me making this card on video, I've linked my YouTube video creating this card below.



I cut a piece of Lawn Fawn's 6x6 Really Rainbow paper pack down to 3 1/2 by 4 3/4. I used the simple circle die from the MFT Jumbo Peek A Boo Windows die set to cut a circle into the patterned paper. Than I took a piece of Lawn Fawn's Cilantro cardstock cut down to the same dimensions as before but this time I used the scalloped circle die to cut into the cardstock. This way you can align the patterned paper piece in front of the piece of Cilantro and you can see the scallops pop out from behind the circle. I then cut a piece of acetate to live behind it to create the window to my shaker card.



Once I adhered all of my layers together, I then began to adhere two layers of foam tape behind the window panel making sure to create a well for my sequin mix to live. I'm using Kindred Stamps Sequin Mix called Balloon Adventure Shaker. I added a few scoops and then fixed my ink blended background to seal in the shaker bits.

I stamped the sub sentiment with Versamark ink onto Lawn Fawn's Black Licorice cardstock. I used Hero Arts Ultra Fine white embossing powder to heat emboss it. I then used Heffy Doodle Strips of Ease die to cut it out. I stuck it to my card front using Scotch 3M foam adhesive.


The entire front panel is adhered to a A2 sized card base cut from Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock. I used double sided tape along the back of the panel to make sure it stays on the card base with all of the added shaker weight.

As for the adorable images from the NEW Teacher's Pet stamp set, I stamped them onto a piece of Neenah 110 lb cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black Ink. I masked the teacher before stamping the students to make it appear as though the students are holding the teachers hands. I colored them using my Faber Castell Polychromos Colored Pencils. I cut out the images and adhered them under my shaker window using foam tape.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. Below is a list of the blog hop participants.

  25. I love how you did the coloring on this. Keeping the texture of the colored pencils really gives it that childhood vibe, even though your coloring is far from childish. Plus the bright colors and the shaker? So much fun. Thanks for sharing these great ideas and cards with us!
