Heffy Doodle Birthday Blog Hop!

Hi everyone and welcome to the Heffy Doodle Blog Hop!! If you’re just starting the hop here, be sure to head back to the beginning to get all the Heffy Doodle goodness from the other hoppers! We’re celebrating Heffy Doodle’s 1st birthday, and what better way than to have a bunch of crafty people to do what they do best and get crafty?! I’ve got a fun project to share with you, but be sure to read to the end for coupon codes and prize info.

I started today’s card by die cutting the Stitched Bubble Background die from some 110 lb card stock. I just love the detail of those stitched bubbles! They make the perfect detail, especially for an underwater card like I made for today. I used my Distress Oxide inks to ink blend some color over top. I used Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch. Then I spritzed it with water to add more bubbly texture to the paper. I also die cut a stitched hillside from some white card stock and ink blended Antique Linen and Walnut Stain Distress Inks over it. I spritzed that as well, and set aside to dry.

Next I stamped out my pups from Yappy Mail, and the kitten from Mewniverse and got to work on altering the images so that they fit my underwater theme. I gave them little bubble helmets by tracing the inner circle of a circle die I have. Anything would do for this step really! The trick is getting something that is the right size. Once that was traced I colored them, and some of the images from Party Palooza in with my Copic markers. The party images I was able to cut out using the coordinating dies, but the animals were fussy cut due to the altered image. But it really didn’t take that long!

I adhered the sandy bank with a tape runner, and some of the images were popped up with foam tape for dimension. I made sure to leave enough room at the top for my sentiment. I die cut three of the Sending Dies and layered them on top of each other for dimension. Then I stamped a sentiment from Yappy Mail onto the smallest of the Strips of Ease die that I cut from some light blue card stock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Then it was time for some finishing touches!

I added white gel pen accents to the images, and glossy accents to their bubble helmets. I also added a ton of white Nuvo Crystal drops for more dimensional bubbles. I adhered the card panel onto a card base and the project was complete! I hope you enjoyed it!

  1. Those bubble helmets are brilliant. I love how you incorporated them to really make these stamp sets your own. My nieces love everything fishy and under-the-sea (and all things animals), so I’m definitely going to have to try this for them. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful idea!
