Hi friends! It’s Friday and I’m getting ready for a relaxing weekend filled with lots of card making. 😄 Today I’m part of the Heffy Doodle Winter Release Blog Hop. More information about the blog hop and GIVEAWAY can be found below.

In this video I’ll be showing you how to create a green gradient background with Heffy Doodle’s brand new Crosswalk stencil and the super fun Prehistorical Pals set

First, I created a green gradient background with the Crosswalk stencil. I used Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide inks. This time I also added some water splatters. I simply sprayed some water in my hand and flicked it on the paper. Afterwards, I picked up the small puddles of water since I didn’t want to mess my card stock up.

Next, I stamped and colored two images from the Prehistorical Pals stamp set from Heffy Doodle. Isn’t this set simply adorable? I haven’t seen anything like this before! 😍

After die cutting a stitched rectangle from the Metric Stitched Rectangle die cut set, I heat embossed a sentiment with Opaque Bright White embossing powder from WOW. Finally, I assembled everything together and added some shine with a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Pen and a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. I also used Apple Green and Key Lime Tonic Nuvo Drops. Lots of green this time! 💚 That’s it for now. Make sure to read all information about the blog hop for a chance to win a prize!

Hello, crafty friends! Today I’m here with a tropical and sparkly card featuring the new UnbeLEAFable stencil from Heffy Doodle.

I used the UnbeLEAFable stencil from Heffy Doodle to make a sparkly tropical background. First I used Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink to add a first layer of color. Next, I added dimension and sparkle with a coat of Moonstone Glimmer Paste from Tonic. I love how sparkly and dimensional this background turned out. 💛 A while ago, I did a similar technique. You can check out that video by clicking HERE.

Remember the Honey Bunny Boo set from Heffy Doodle I used for Easter and springtime cards? I wanted to break out that set again and use it for a non-Easter card. I simply switched up the sentiment using Heffy Doodle’s new Everyday Sentiment Duos stamp set.

Then, I adhered everything together on an ink blended frame. However, I wasn’t really sure if I liked it or not. To me it made the card feel too much like an Easter card and I was trying to avoid that since I was already using an Easter-ish stamp set. So I simply die cut the frame once more, trimmed it down and adhered it on top of the ink blended frame. Nobody will ever notice. 😄 Finally, I finished off my card with a coat of Tonic Crystal Glaze and a couple of Nuvo Drops. 💫

That’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by. Big hugs. 💕

Hi everyone! Today I’m joining Heffy Doodle for a fun blog hop celebrating their first birthday. 💛 I’m featuring the Oceans of Love set along with the Bubble Waves stencil to create an adorable underwater scene card.

In the video, I’m showing you how to make this cute card. I did a bunch of techniques including ink blending, masking, Copic coloring, heat embossing and even a magic stencil technique I learned from Jennifer McGuire. Make sure to watch the video below.

I started out by doing some masking and ink blending to create the base of my ocean scene. For the bottom of the sea, I used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo. For the actual water, I used different shades of blue. Finally, I added more dimension to the sea with the Bubble Waves stencil from Heffy Doodle.

Oceans of Love (Heffy Doodle 1st Birthday Blog Hop)

I did some stamping with the Bubble Waves stencil. This is a great technique I learned from Jennifer McGuire. I simply sprayed the stencil with water, turned it around and pressed it onto the paper. To make sure I had a nice stamped impression, I used paper towel. I like how it turned out! 😀

Oceans of Love (Heffy Doodle 1st Birthday Blog Hop)

Aren’t these sea animals from the Oceans of Love set adorable?! I love them. For the sentiment, I did some heat embossing with Atlantic Seaspray and Clear Gloss embossing powder from WOW. To finish everything off, I added a coat of sparkle with a Crafter’s Companion Sparkle Pen. So far this is my favorite sparkle pen because of the amount of glitter it adds. 😍 I also used Crystal Glaze from Tonic for extra shine!

Hi all! Last week I received a package filled with Tonic goodies. Lots of fun stuff including the Nuvo Embellishment Mousse. There are so many options with this product. In this video I’m showing you how to create a pearlescent ombré background with a stencil. I’ll be showing more techniques in upcoming videos. 😀

The Embellishment Mousse is very thick. At first it may seem impossible to use with stencils. However, the more you work with it, the more it spreads nicely. I used an old daisy stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop. However, the Bold Daisy stencil from Hero Arts would be a great alternative! You can also rub the products directly onto paper using your finger. Or if you add water to it, it can be used as paint since it’s water based.

Create Pearlescent Backgrounds with Tonic Nuvo Embellishment Mousse and Stencils

It leaves a beautiful pearlescent metallic finish which I think is fantastic. 💛 In total there are 24 colors. I got 6 of the softer, pastel colors. I used Peony Pink, Coral Calypso, Lemon Sorbet, Spring Green, Aquamarine and Lilac Lavender. These are perfect for Spring themed cards, don’t you think?

I colored one of the bunny images of the Honey Bunny Boo set from Heffy Doodle. I stamped little butterflies around the bunnies with The Ton’s Couture Color Ink. This is my favorite ink because it comes in so many colors and because they give a solid impression every single time. Finally, I finished off my card with Nuvo’s Shimmer Pen and a coat of Crystal Glaze.
