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. 💕

Hello! As promised, I got back to card making this weekend and I had so much fun. 😄 If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you already saw a sneak peek of today’s card. I’m so excited to be sharing the full card in today’s blog post along with another video tutorial.

In this video I’m featuring the adorable Beam Me Up set from Lawn Fawn. Those aliens are simply adorable. (PS: Want to see another card I made with this stamp set? Simply click HERE!)

It’s my dad’s birthday this Tuesday, so I had to pick out a color scheme he would like. I decided to play with shades of yellow, lime and turquoise for this year’s birthday card. I thought this color scheme was perfectly suitable for these aliens and I actually enjoyed stepping out of my comfort zone. 💛

Once I masked and ink blended the background, I decided to add some stars with a stencil from Winnie & Walter and Moonstone Glimmer Paste from Tonic. I love this stuff and I should stock up since my jar is almost empty! This paste is super sparkly, applies easily and dries within 30 minutes. 💫

For the sentiment, I mixed and matched different stamps together. I embossed the greeting with Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder from Wow. Make sure that your ink is bone dry before heat embossing. Otherwise your embossing powder will stick everywhere. Even though your ink is dry, I still recommend using a tool or kitchen flour to remove any static cling before heat embossing.

To finish off this outer space birthday card, I used a Spectrum Noir Shimmer Pen to add glitter to some of the elements. I also added a coat of Tonic Crystal Glaze. Because even though this is supposed to be a masculine birthday card, a healthy dose of sparkle is ALWAYS allowed! 😉

That’s it for now. Thanks so much for stopping by. Make sure to follow me on my social media profiles to stay connected. Big hugs! 💕
