Heffy Doodle New Release Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to the Heffy Doodle new release blog hop. We have lots of GORGEOUS products in this release so make sure to check them out :) You will see me use this release a lot because of it's versatility!


You should have come here from the talented Ali Farmer's blog.
 
For my 1st. card, I used the Absotoothly Awesome Stamp and die, Stitched Star Dies, Star Swirl Stencil. I started by die-cutting a square mat layer. I then applied some distress inks using the life changer brushes. I then applied more ink through the stencil. Now, I die-cut a star window to create the shaker element. I adhered vellum behind the opening. Stamp, color and die-cut the images. Stamp and emboss the word Fairy, stamped the rest of the sentiment and assembled the card together.



For the 2nd. card I used the  Absotoothly Awesome Stamp and die, Fairy word die, Cloudy Skies Stencil, Sprinkled with Fun Stencil and the Stitched Rectangle dies.  I applied some ink using the cloud stencils. You will love this stencil. I then applied inks through the sprinkled stencil and then applied deco gel. Once dry, I used the Opal foil and run this piece through the laminator. 
Stamp, color and die-cut the image. Die-cut the word Fairy. Stamp and emboss the rest of the sentiment. Assemble everything together.

For my card below, I used the new Layered Stars Die along with the Kind Confetti Stamp and the GORGEOUS patterned papers from the Celestial paper Pack. All the details are in the video for this card :)

For my 2nd card, I used the new Dainty Blooms Cover Die along with the sentiment from A Walk In the Woods stamp. I decided to foil this pretty die using the Opal foil from Thermoweb. I die-cut the cover die and then applied Deco foil transfer gel to it. Let it dry, I then put the foil on this and ran it through the laminator.


I created a background for this die-cut panel using various distress oxide inks. I have the colors in the supply list below :) To finish, I added the pretty sequins by Studio Katia.

For the 3rd card, I used the new Delicate Mandala Die, Virginia Rose 3D Die along with the Signature Words Die. I started by die cutting the mandala using a thin cardstock and used it as a mask in the center of the panel. added some Salty Ocean distress ink using packaging technique. I then removed this mask, dried it and adhered to the corners of my panel. I die-cut the flowers and the leaves. I colored them using the Color Burst powders by Ken Oliver (the colors are in the list below)

 I have an older video on how to use the powders HERE on YouTube.


I embossed the last layer of the flower using Sparkle Gold embossing powder. I then flicked some black and gold splatters. I die-cut the word Hello using yellow and black cardstock, layered them a bit offset. Adhere everything to the cardbase. To finish I added these pretty sequins by Studio Katia.


I was having too much fun playing with these new dies so for my 4th and 5th card, I used the new Delicate Mandala Die along with the Super Script Stamp and Die, Leaf Clusters Stamp set. I played with my Gelli Plate and some Acrylic paints by Fun Stampers Journey.

 For this card I die-cut a mask using the mandala die and used it as mask. I used the Candy apple paint by FSJ and some Gold paint by Aquatec Studio


 I die-cut the word Hugs from Gold foil cardstock and added some gold gems to finish the card.


For this card, I used the Cool Pool, Beach Ball, Whip Cream, Candy Apple paints by FSJ and some gold paint. Let me know if you would like me to make a video of the technique.
I used the Heart Beat ink to stamp the word Friend.


I finished the card with some gold thread and some iridescent gems.
