Today I’m sharing a Valentine’s Day card using Dino Time stamps and Dino Prints Dies!

Hi, crafty friends, Cassie here! How are you all doing today? I’m doing great, because I’ve been in the craft room creating this cute Valentine’s Day card! It’s a pretty simple design that has some really fun details. Let’s jump right in.

img_2674

I started the card for today by stamping out all of the dinosaurs from Dino Time on some 110 lb card stock with Copic safe ink. Then, I colored them in with my favorite peachy pink combo: R32, R30, R00 and R000. I used some R08 and R30 for their cheeks. Each dino got some white highlights with my gel pen, and was die cut using the coordinating Dino Time dies.

The next step was to create my die cut panel over lay. I took a piece of 110 lb cardstock that was cut to A2 size, and die cut the Dino Prints dies across the piece to look like footprints. Next, on another A2 size card panel, I ink blended Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. I had no real rhyme or reason to how I did this. The only thing I kept in mind was where the foot prints were cut so that I didn’t have harsh lines in those areas. If you notice, some footprint areas fade from color to color, some fade to white. I like the variation of them, but if you were looking for a more solid shape, you could ink blend the whole panel.

I adhered the die cut panel over the ink blended one, and attached my dinosaurs with some adhesive to those pieces as well. I didn’t end up using them all, but the ones that I didn’t use were tucked in with the stamp set in case I can use them in the future. I also added some white dot details to each foot print area. Once everything was put together, all I had left to do was make my sentiment. I used a Copic marker to color a piece of card stock in a red shade and heat embossed one of the sentiments over the top with white embossing powder. To cut out the sentiment I used the smallest Stripes of Ease die and then attached it to the card using foam tape. And that’s it for my card today! I hope you enjoyed this cute Valentine. Have you started making your Valentine’s yet? It will be here before we know it! Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I’ll see you again soon!

Hello Pumpkin!

Hi, everyone! Happy Thursday! I’m back to share another Heffy Doodle card with you all today. I’m still on the Veggie Patch kick and I had to make this card for my friend that I don’t get to see often enough. The last card I created that didn’t have any coloring seemed to be a hit so I decided to give it a try again! Let’s jump in.
I started the card for today by taking by taking a piece of 110 lb, white card stock and the Slants Vs. Rhombies stencil and ink blended Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink over it. Once I had a good layer of ink down, I removed the stencil and used my heat tool to dry the ink. I did this because I planned on heat embossing over the top of the stenciling. I took the largest heart from the Veggie Patch stamp set and stamped it with VersaMark ink. I used white embossing powder and heated it to get a nice smooth finish. I wanted a little more interest, so I added some white gel pen dots around the panel as well.

Next I stamped two of the pumpkins with the same VersaMark ink onto some Bristol Smooth card stock. I also heat embossed them with the same white embossing powder. Then it was time to get inky again! I used my ink blending tool and, what else, Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide ink to color these cuties in. I splattered one with some water for a little texture, and added some pink to their cheeks with a pink Copic marker.

I also added a little Twisted Citron to the stem. To finish off the card I adhered the pumpkins to the stenciled piece with foam tape. I also heat embossed a sentiment onto some kraft card stock and trimmed it out with the Stripes of Ease die. And that’s my card for today! I hope you enjoyed this non-coloring card that I created! Do you love coloring, or do you like to skip it for cards like this one? Thanks so much for stopping by today and I’ll see you again soon with another card!

Oh My Gourd

Today I’m sharing a card that that is super easy to create, and uses the adorable Veggie Patch stamp set!

IMG_2284

Hi, crafty friends! I hope you all had a wonderful week so far. It’s Cassie here, and I’m back to share a fun and easy card with you all! I’m coming off of my holiday crafting and needed a little break from it, so I whipped up this cute veggie thank you. It was so fun to color these sweet vegetables!

IMG_2286s

I started today’s card by die cutting the largest of the stitched rectangle dies from the Imperial Stitched Rectangle die set out of some 110 lb, white card stock. I used a Copic friendly card stock and ink. I stamped the veggies from the Veggie Patch stamp set to the left of the card panel, leaving a portion of the panel open for a sentiment. Once They were all stamped, I colored them in with Copic markers and added some white gel pen accents to give them a little more detail.

IMG_2287

Next, I stamped the two hearts from the set with some tan dye ink all over the background. I liked the way this looked, but wanted to fill it in a little more, so I took a Copic marker in a similar color and added dots all over the background as well. An important tip about stamping out a background like this is to make sure some of the hearts look like they’re going behind the vegetables. That way it looks like a continuous pattern! I did this the lazy way, by using a post it note to mask the images as I stamped over them so the ink didn’t go over the portion I had colored in with Copics.

IMG_2285

To finish off the card, I stamped out the sentiment “Oh my gourd” on a piece of the 110 lb white card stock with VersaMark ink. I heat embossed white embossing powder over it, and then I ink blended some Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink over it. I did the same with the cute little word bubble from Whatcha Sayin’ Now and die cut them both out. For the sentiment strip I used the Strips of Ease die so that the sentiment was cut perfectly.

 

Merry and Bright

Today I’m sharing a no color card featuring stencils, dies and some heat embossing!
Hi, crafty friends! It’s Cassie here, and I’m back to share a card with you just in time for Christmas. Today I’m branching out and sharing a card that has no coloring. You heard me right! No. Coloring. This is such an unusual card for me because I always love to color at least one thing on a card, but I had this idea and I had to run with it. I started by die cutting the pine tree from the Forest Builder Dies three times from a piece of A2 size white card stock. I made sure to get the middle one as close to the center as possible, and then evenly spaced another on each side. It’s not perfect, but I honestly don’t think it needs to be! I’m not someone who measures unless absolutely necessary, but if that’s your thing you could definitely go that route to make them even.

Next I masked off sections of the front of a card base so that I could do my stenciling on it and the different colors would only be visible in each tree section. I used the Candy Store stencil with the colors Lucky Clover, Spun Sugar and Candied Apple Distress Oxide inks to create the pattern that would be seen through the open die cut areas. I stamped the Merry & Bright sentiment from the Holiday Sentiment Duo set in VersaMark ink and heat embossed gold embossing powder over it. Then I attached the panel to my card base so that it lined up, and those stripes were seen through the die holes.

To finish the card I die cut the trunk from some brown card stock and adhered it to the tree with some liquid adhesive. I added some Glossy Accents to it to give a little interest. I finished the card by adding some colored mini balls that I have from Michaels as ornaments. I used colors that went with the color combo for the stripes, and each tree got a green, pink and red ball. And that is it for my card today! I hope you enjoyed it. It was fun to venture outside my comfort zone and make a card with no coloring πŸ™‚ What is outside of your comfort zone that you’d like to give a try? Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you all have a happy holiday season, and I’ll see you again soon with another card!

 

Winter Wishes

Hi, everyone! I’m back with a fun and wintery shaker card to share with you. This is one of my favorite cards that I’ve made this season, so I’m really excited to share it with you. I started today’s card by putting together the shaker portion of the card. On an A2 size card panel I used the First Snowfall Stencil to create a snowy hill in the background. In the end it isn’t super noticeable, but I do like the variation between the top and bottom. To create the top portion of the shaker I die cut the largest rectangle from the Imperial Stitched Rectangles from a piece of white cardstock.
IMG_2219
Then I die cut two of the smaller rectangles from the center of the piece. I did the larger one in the center, and then two of the smaller ones on either side. To create the walls of the shaker I did a double layer of foam tape around the perimeter of the card, as well as under the panels between the three rectangles that were cut from the top piece. For shaker bits I used some white puff balls that I found at my local craft store. I thought they looked like snow balls!

Once the shaker was put together I worked on the elements that were layered on top of it. I stamped a bunch of the images from the Wanna Build a Snowman stamp set. This is one of my favorite stamp sets from the last release. Those penguins are SO cute! I colored them all in with my Copic Markers, and fussy cut them out. I also die cut out three of each the Winter and Wishes dies to layer them for the card. I glued all the layers together and colored the top layer with my Copic Markers. This is a great way to make sure that your die cut words match your project perfectly!

Finally, I adhered everything down to the card and added some white gel pen accents. I also gave these two penguins each a snow ball so that it looked like they were having a friendly little snow ball fight! πŸ™‚ Aren’t they adorable??

IMG_2215g.jpgAnd that was my card for today! I hope you enjoyed it. I have to admit, I wish we had as much snow as the penguins on this card do! They make it look so fun πŸ™‚ Thank you so much for stopping by today, and I’ll see you again soon with another card!

Warm Wishes

It’s time to start thinking about Christmas cards, and today I’m showing you a cute scene card using the Santa’s Village stamp set!

Hi, everyone! It’s Cassie here, and I’m back today to share a cute holiday card that I made using loves of my favorite Heffy Doodle products. I can’t get over how sweet the Santa’s Village stamp set is. I knew I wanted to make a cute little scene for this card, so I stamped out a few of the images from the set and colored them with my Copic markers. They were die cut with the coordinating dies and set aside while I created the rest of the scene.

Next I started working on the background. I die cut the Stargazer Backdrop Die from some light blue paper, adding lots of white dots with my white gel pen for snow. To create the snow banks I traced the First Snow Stencil with a pencil and cut them out with my scissors. Each of those snow banks was also die cut with the Imperial Stitched Rectangle dies so that the stitching matched on the edges. All of those layers were put together with a tape runner. On the actual card base I smooshed my VersaMark ink pad onto it and heat embossed silver embossing powder so that the stars would glitter.

Once all of those pieces were attached I added the little images that I had colored in. For my sentiment I heat embossed a sentiment from the Santa’s Village set with white embossing powder and ink blended some Candied Apple Distress Oxide ink over it. I trimmed that down and adhered it over the Wishes die that I adhered to the card. To create the wishes die I die cut four of the word and glued them all together. I used my Copics, in the same color combo that I used on the trees, and created an ombre look on it.

That was it for my card today! I hope you enjoyed it. Who else is in the holiday spirit?! I just love making Christmas cards and watching some Christmas movies πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a great rest of your day.

Happy New Home

Hi, everybody! It’s Cassie here, and I’m back to share another card with you. Today’s card uses some cute products from the new release that I just love. Let’s jump in!

I started this card by using the Wildside Stencil. I had a piece of A2 size card stock and ink blended Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink all over the card front. Then I took the stencil and placed it over the card stock and used Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink to create the pattern. This worked well because I had chosen a lighter color to do as the base and a darker color to use for the stenciled portion making the pattern actually show up!

Next I stamped out a bunch of the images from the Prehistoric Pals stamp set and colored them in with my Copic markers. I also fussy cut them all out. Then I die cut one of the rectangles from the Imperial Stitched Rectangles die set for my scene’s background. I masked off one half of the rectangle and, with a light hand, ink blended more Walnut Stain Distress Oxide for the ground. Then, on the other side, I ink blended Antique Linen for the sky.

Once the ink was dry I stamped the sentiment from Holiday Sentiment Duos in VersaMark ink and heat embossed gold embossing powder over it. I did that first so that I made sure that when I arranged all my little stamped images that there would be enough room for everything. I adhered all the images with some glue and my card was complete! I hope you enjoyed the card for today. Thanks so much!

 

I Love You Veggie Much

Hi, Heffy Doodle friends! It’s Cassie, back today with another card to share with you! It feels like forever since I’ve been on the Heffy Doodle blog, so I’m excited to share what I’ve got for you today πŸ™‚ I’m using a bunch of the new release 5 products for this card that I think would be perfect for anyone that you want to let know you care for them! Let’s jump in.


I started the card today by stamping out a bunch of the vegetables from Veggie Patch stamp set with VersaMark ink and heat embossing them with a detailed white embossing powder. Once they cooled I took my Distress Oxides and ink blended them with different colors to look like they normally do. I spritzed them with a little water to give them a splattered look and die cut them out with coordinating dies. While I had the embossing stuff out I also white heat embossed a sentiment from the set on some yellow cardstock and cut it out with the smallest Stripes of Ease die.

Next I die cut the largest rectangle from the Imperial Stitched Rectangle die set and grabbed the Candy Store stencil for some ink blending. I used Fossilized Amber to ink blend the stripes on. I love the way this looks over kraft card stock! Distress Oxides are such magical inks πŸ™‚ Next I arranged the vegetables on the card how I wanted them, adhering them down with some adhesive.

I adhered the sentiment with some foam tape, and decided it needed a little something extra. So I stamped out the speech bubble and sentiment from Whatcha Sayin’ Now and popped it on with foam tape as well. To finish off the card I added some white gel pen dots around the veggies. I had wanted to do some ink splatter by I didn’t want to risk getting it where I didn’t want it, since the card was pretty much complete at this point. This was a perfect alternative! And that’s it for my card today! I hope you enjoyed it. Thank you so much for stopping by, and I’ll see you again soon!

Have a Mammoth Day!

Hello, everyone! Welcome back πŸ™‚ I’m sharing a cute birthday card showcasing some sweet new release products. I just love how these products go so well together. It makes it so easy to put a card together! Let’s take a look!

Today’s card is pretty a pretty simple design, but it still has a lot of fun elements. I started by die cutting the largest rectangle from the Imperial Stitched Rectangle Dies from some gray cardstock. Next I used the Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide inks with the Stoney Maloney stencil to create this pretty background for my birthday party scene. I only used the Frayed Burlap around the outer edges to make a highlight in the center.

Next I stamped out images from the Dino Time, Prehistoric Pals, Dinky Dinos, Party Palooza, Happy Snappy Crocs, and Elephant of Surprise stamp sets. Like I said, the images all go so well together that it’s fun to pull from many stamp sets to get just the look you’re going for! All the images were colored in with Copic markers and die cut with coordinating dies. I arranged them on the card onale and adhered them down with adhesive. Some of them I popped up with foam tape for a little added dimension.

For my sentiment I stamped the ‘have a mammoth day’ saying onto some black card stock and heat embossed gold embossing powder over it. Then I used the Stripes of Ease dies to cut it out and adhered it to my card. To add some finishing touches, I added some white gel pen accents. And that was it for my card today! If you like the Dinky Dinos stamp set be sure to check out the promo going on to get them added to your order!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you liked today’s card. I’ll see you again soon with another one!
