My Hero Tag

Hi, everyone! It’s Cassie here, and I’m sharing a cute tag I made that would make anyone smile. Who doesn’t love to hear that they’re your hero?? Let’s jump right in.

I die cut the tag from the Tag Along die set. Then I ran the tag through my die machine with an embossing pad and the Starfall Stencil to get that fun and subtle  embossed background. It’s a little difficult to see in the photos, but really cute in real life. I also stamped out the cutie super hero from the Superdudes stamp set and colored her in with my Copics. I fussy cut her out and adhered her to the tag.

I went with soft colors to go with the gray tag. Then I added some silver dots with a gel pen. Finally, I die cut the My Hero word dies and adhere them on my tag. I think I’ll be sending this off to a friend who needs a pick me up this week! My finishing touches were to add white gel pen accents to the girl, and some black and white twine to the top. And that was it! Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed the card! I’ll see you again soon with another one!

Heffy Doodle & Chibitronics Collab!

Hi, everyone. I’m super excited to share a card I made for today’s post with you. It features products from both Heffy Doodle and Chibitronics! We were super lucky to be able to team up with the Chibitronics team and make some awesome cards for this hop. You can win a Chibitronics Starter kit and a £50 Heffy Doodle gift certificate! Two winners will be chosen May 6th 🙂 Here’s the fun card I came up with.

I started the card by planning out my circuit. This meant I drew a rough sketch of my card and then started creating the card. I used my Distress Oxide Sprays to create the background. This was fun, and super easy. I just sprayed Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber over an A2 card base and that was it! I let the sprays do there thing, and completely dry before I came back to die cut the hearts from it.  Once the hearts were die cut I took a piece of vellum and my Misti and stamped the hearts from Eggcellent News and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. Beneath the hearts is where I put my Chibitronics red light bulbs from the starter kit. The starter kit has everything you need to make your first light up design!

I made sure to get my copper tape circuit right where I needed it to be to get the lights to work, and did a lot of testing before I moved on to make sure I wasn’t going to run into any problems after the card was put together. Then I added foam tape around the battery and card base so as to give the battery room so that the lights weren’t on all the time.

I used the Grassy Lass border dies and Stitched Slopey Joes border dies to create some dimension below the volcano that I stamped from the Geology Rocks stamp set. I also stamped out all of the dinosaurs from the Dino Time stamp set. These cuties just go so well with the volcano-I couldn’t pass up using them to finish my scene!

I also couldn’t resist adding a speech bubble from the Whatcha Sayin stamp set for the T-Rex. Too cute! I finished the card by heat embossing the sentiment “I Lava You” and adhering it to the bottom of the card.

All right! That’s it for my card, but be sure to hop along to the rest of the projects and leave some comments for your chance to win! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my project and get inspired to make some cool light up cards 🙂 I’ll see you again soon with another card!

Hip Hip Hoo-ray!

Today I’m sharing a cute birthday card highlighting the Hootiful stamp set and some awesome Heffy Doodle dies!

Hello, crafty friends! It’s Cassie here, and I’m back today to share a birthday card I made for someone in my family. I wanted it to create a cute night sky with the scalloped die from the Clover Frames die set, as well as the Stargazer Backdrop die. I started by die cutting the Stargazer die first. Then I die cut the scalloped rectangle from it. By doing that die second I was able to be more precise about where the stars fell around the edge of the rectangle. Once the piece was cut out I was able to ink blend over the piece of card stock. I used Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans and Peacock Feathers to create the night sky. I splattered some of each other colors over the panel, as well as some white paint. Then I set it aside to dry.

Next I stamped out images from the Hootiful stamp set as well as the Party Palooza stamp set to create my scene. Everything was colored in with my Copic markers and die cut with the coordinating dies. I adhered everything down with some liquid adhesive, adding some cute gel pen details to the images.

I stamped out the sentiment ‘hip hip hoo-ray’ from the Hootiful stamp set and trimmed it out with the smallest Strips of Ease die. That was also adhered down to the card with liquid adhesive. I had some of the stars on my desk from die cutting the Stargazer Backdrop die and decided to adhere them around the outside edge of the card for some added texture and detail. And that was it! Birthday card complete! I hope you enjoyed the card I created for today. Thanks so much for stopping by, and I’ll see you again with another card!

Hey, Chickie

Hi, crafty friends! II’m back to share a cute spring card with you that I made for the HEffy Doodle blog today. Let’s get started!

I started the card for today by die cutting my sentiment “hello chickie” with the Stitched Alphabet Dies from an A2 size card panel. This took a little maneuvering, just because I only have one of each letter and there are doubles in the sentiment, but it wasn’t too difficult to get the spacing pretty close to even! Once that was die cut I ink blended the front of a card base with Fossilized Amber ink and adhered the panel with the die cut letters over top so that the yellow showed through.

I also ink blended some Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink over the corners of the front panel, as well as splattered from of the Distress Oxide spray over it in the same color. Next I moved on to the scene. I die cut a little hill of grass with the Grassy Lass dies from some 110 lb white card stock and ink blended Mowed Lawn and Twstited Citron over it to give it some color. Then I stamped out images from the  Eggcellent News stamp set. I colored those images in with my copics, adding some white gel pen details to each of them. Then I die cut them out with coordinating dies!

Finally, I adhered the die cut images to the card and it was complete! This card came together really quickly, and I think you could do a set of them in lots of springy pastel colors! It’d be so cute. Thank you so much for stopping by today! I’ll see you again soon with another card!

To Some Bunny Awesome

Hi, everyone!  I’m back to share my project for today. I decided it was time to use the Mark My Words bookmark dies. I have a lot of family and friends who I know are going to love getting some adorable bookmarks with these dies! For today’s bookmark I decided to go with a spring/Easter theme.

I started by die cutting three of the same bookmark shapes. There are two designs in the set, but I wanted to use some twine on mine, so I went with the one that had the hole at the top. On one of the bookmarks I ink blended Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide over it. Then I splattered it with Blueprint Sketch and Milled Lavender Distress Oxide that I’d watered down a little. Over the second book mark I ink blended over the entire die cut piece with some Distress Oxide that I’d mixed myself with reinkers. Finally, for the last bookmark, I used the Grassy Lass Border dies to cut the bottom off. Then I ink blended Twisted Citron and the hand mixed green-ish color I used for the back side. All three pieces were set aside to dry completely while I worked on the other pieces.

I stamped out the bunny and carrots from the Honey Bunny Boo stamp set and colored them in with my Copic markers. Then I die cut them out with the coordinating dies and added some white gel pen details. I adhered the grass bookmark bottom to the blue bookmark, as well as the bunny and carrots. I decided I didn’t like how empty the top was, so I went ahead and die cut some of the Swirly Clouds and adhered them down, trimming off the part that hung over the edge.

For the back of the bookmark I heat embossed a sentiment from Honey Bunny Boo, mixing two of the fonts. I like the way the ‘bunny’ is so big and pretty! I added adhesive only to the top 1/2 inch of the bookmark, so that the two pieces could be sandwiched together and be used like a clamp. To finish off the bookmark I added white dots to the back side, and a dainty twine bow at the hole at the top. And that’s it for my project today! I hope you enjoyed it! I have a feeling this is going to be sent out in an Easter care package to one of my friends 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by today! I’ll see you again soon with another card!

Hello!

Hi, everyone! It’s Cassie here from Creatively Cass and I’m back to share a cute card I made for the blog today! I absolutely missed the St. Patrick’s day window this year, but I still wanted to get a rainbow card in, and this is what I came up with.

I’ve had the Rainbow Wishes die set from Concord & 9th forever, and it was time to finally use it! I die cut some of the rainbow pieces out of the new Lawn Fawn card stock colors Pencil Eraser, No. 2 Pencil and Sage Leaf. I love these new colors and can’t wait to use them again! I also die cut some Heffy Doodle Swirly Clouds dies from a light gray cardstock. Then I used Black Soot Distress Oxide ink to darken up the bottoms of them a little.
I die cut the Stitched Cloud Backdrop die from white card stock and heat embossed some little stars all over the panel with gold embossing powder. I thought this added a cute touch to the background, without adding any competing colors. I also ink blended some Pumice Stone Distress Oxide in the corners and splattered a little bit of the color watered down for some more texture. I stamped out the cute little cat from the Mama Elephant set Book Worm and colored him in with my Copic markers. I kept the coloring really simple, and I love the way it turned out so soft. I popped everything up with foam tape and adhered it to the card base.
To finish off the card I heat embossed a simple hello from the Concord & 9th set All Year Long onto some black card stock. This too was popped up with some foam tape. The last little details I added were white gel pen on the rainbow, clouds and kitten. And that’s it for my card today! I hope you enjoyed it. I had fun making it! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I’ll see you again soon with another card 🙂

 

Hello My Friend

Hello, friends!  I’m back today to  share another fun Heffy Doodle card with you all. Today I’m using lots of dies for this cute dino card. Let’s jump right in!

IMG_3196c

I started by die cutting the two tag pieces from the Tag Along dies. The full piece from white card stock and the frame from gray card stock. On the white full die cut I used the Rays the Roof stencil to create the rainbow of rays for the background. I also splattered some gold paint over the piece, as I knew I was going to be using more gold later in the card. I adhered the frame to the piece and tied some black and white twine through the hole at the top.

IMG_3197sc

The next thing I did was die cut one of the larger squares from the Stitched Square Dies set and ink blended some Broken China Distres Oxide ink over the entire piece. I also splattered this piece with gold paint and some of the Broken China ink for some texture and interest. I love to splatter everything!

IMG_3199ff

Next came a lot of die cutting! I die cut all of the different sizes of the Dino Prints dies from white card stock, vellum and gold glitter card stock. Then I arranged the dino prints die cuts all over the square. I heat embossed a sentiment from Whatcha Sayin’ on one of the tiny prints. Once all the footprints were adhered down I adhered the tag down as well with foam tape, and added the final footprints to the tag with the sentiment. Finally, I had one of the dinosaurs from Dino Time already colored and ready to go, so I adhered him to the tag to finsih it off! I love having pre colored and cut images just for that reason 🙂 And my card was finished!! I hope you enjoyed the card I created today. It was heavy on the die cutting, which was fun for a change. Thanks so much for stopping by, and I’ll see you again soon with another card!

Birthday Overload

Hi, everyone! I hope you’re all have a great Thursday! I’m happy to be back sharing another Heffy Doodle creation with you all. Ever since the new release came out I knew I wanted to do something with rainbow robots! Finally I was able to make that idea into a card! Let’s take a look!

IMG_3059

I started the card by doing all my coloring. I stamped out all of the robots from the Bots of Love stamp set twice and colored them in with my Copic markers, making sure to get all the rainbow goodness! I also stamped and colored a couple other images including the pixel heart and a gear to be made into balloons! Then I fussy cut everything out and set it aside to work on the background.

IMG_3060

To create my background I took a piece of 110 lb white card stock and the Cogs and Code stencil and did some embossing with my die machine. Carefully, I arranged the stencil so the cogs would cover one corner at a time and ran it through my die machine using a sandwich that applied enough pressure to press the paper into the stencil and emboss the pattern into it. This is one of my new favorite techniques and I want to do it constantly! It adds such a fun element to a card. I also splattered some gold paint over the panel for some interest.

IMG_3061

I die cut the Birthday die cut from some paper that I had covered with the same gold paint that I splattered over the card panel, and layered it over two other birthday die cuts I’d done. I also heat embossed the ‘overload’ on some black paper and trimmed it down to a strip. Then I put the card together! The robots were added with foam tape, and so were the other elements I had stamped and colored. I attached the sentiment and my card was complete! I hope you enjoyed the card I made for today. I love a rainbow on a card, and these little robots are too cute. Thank you so much for joining me today, and I’ll see you again soon with another card!

Programmed to Party!

Hi, everyone! I’m back today to share a fun card with you all! I tried using transfer gel to foil a stencil for this card, and I have to admit-I love the way it turned out!! Let’s get started!

IMG_2773.jpg

I started the card for today with the stenciling. I used transfer gel over the Love Circuit stencil. After applying a even layer and washing the stencil off, I let the gel dry for about an hour. That’s when I used my Minc to foil the pattern with some copper foil. I love the way this turned out, especially with this circuit image!!

IMG_27761.jpgNext, I did all of my stamping and die cutting. I die cut one of the Stitched Square dies, and die cut the stenciled piece down with one of the Stitched Circle dies. I wanted to make a smaller, square card so I picked sizes that worked for that. I also die cut four of the Party dies to be stacked together, and one of the banners from the Tag Along die set.

IMG_2775f.jpg

I heat embossed a partial sentiment onto the banner after coloring it with one of my Copic markers so that it matched the robot I stamped from the Bots of Love stamp set! I love the cute robots in this set! To add some interest to my stitched square I stamped some of the gears from the set with VersaMark, and added some splatter to it and the stenciled piece.

IMG_2776

To finish the card I put everything together with foam tape and glue, and my card was complete! Thank you so much for joining me today! I hope you enjoyed the card I made, and I will see you again soon with another one!

There’s Gnome One Like You

Hi, everyone and welcome back! I’m sharing a fun card for Heffy Doodle today using some of their newest release products.

I’ve been loving switching it up from winter cards lately and making some springy type cards! Today’s card really could be for any time of year, but those cute butterflies and grassy scene have me thinking of spring! I started the card by die cutting a square from the Stitched Squares dies, and doing some stenciling over it. I used the Circles of Life Stencil for this! I went over it once with white pigment ink, and then shifted the stencil and went over it again with a aqua color. I made sure to let the white ink dry before adding the second layer. I love the detail this adds!

Once my background was done I went on to work on the scene of the card. I stamped out a bunch of the images from the Gnome Matter What stamp set and colored them in with my Copic markers. I die cut them out, as well as a small circle from the Stitched Circles dies. I also used the Grassy Lass Border dies to create a little grass patch. I ink blended some green inks over this piece, and did a lot of splattering of the darker green as well as some white paint to give it some interest.


Next I arranged all of these elements on my card, centering them where the stencil naturally was centered. I didn’t make this right in the center of the card, but instead off to the right side. I also heat embossed a sentiment from the Gnome Matter What stamp set and die cut it with the Strips of Ease die set. This was attached to the card with some foam tape, and my card was complete! I hope you enjoyed this project for today! Are you making the transition to more springy cards too? Let me know! Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I’ll see you again soon with another card!
