Heffy Doodle and Sunny Studio Stamps Collaboration Blog Hop

 


Welcome to the Heffy Doodle and Sunny Studio Stamps Collaboration Blog Hop!

Design Team members from both companies are sharing inspiration using products from both companies! 

I’m so honored to be participating in this fun collaboration. Both wonderful companies provide such amazing products and with such cute themes. It was so simple to bring them both together since my creativity was flowing with excitement, and I love the the way they look together. 

I knew right away when I saw the cute mini stamp set from Sunny Studios called Just Bee-Cause that I wanted to combine the images with Heffy Doodles signature bears. I stamped out some of the cute bears from Beary Big Heart and colored everything with copic markers before die cutting with the coordinating dies.  I was so happy to have the perfect Country Scenes Stamp   to easily create the wooded background for my card. I added a die cut grassy layer on the bottom using the Grassy Lass Borders and popped it up on some foam tape. 

I inkblended a cloudy sky panel using Cloudy Skies Stencil and distress oxide inks, then splattered with water, white and gold ink.  I created a custom sentiment for the sky using the Rascal Alphabet Stamps And Dies and Scattered Straw Distress Oxide ink. I surrounded my Bee Kind sentiment with cute Sunny Studios he’s, and a few gold stars then mounted my image panel onto a contrasting black layer and some patterned paper. 

I love the way these companies products blend together, and hopefully as you hop along to all of the inspiration from both DTs, you will be motivated to do a little mixing and collaborating your self.

Special Delivery with Bri Moodboard

 Hello crafty friends! This is my first blog post of the year with Butterfly Reflections Ink, and of course I am using the gorgeous January BRI Moodboard. If you haven’t already drooled all over these elegant and glam colors, they are Icy Mint, Powder Pink, Rose Gold , and Deep Space Blue. 

I have so many different card ideas I want to create, but I still hadn’t used some of my Winter Lawn Fawn haul, as well as most of the brand new Lawn Fawn too. So I thought I’d better get to it! I used the new Special Delivery stamps and dies, along with the Add On set with the boxes and labels. I love that owl and his little mail man hat so much. I combined these images, with some bears from the winter release Den Sweet Den, set to create a lovely snowy book delivery. 

I stamped all of my images using the brown Crunchy Leaf in from Lawn Fawn, and copic colored my images using colors that fit the Moodboard. After die cutting the images using the coordinating dies, I added white dot highlights. I cut some paper panels using Lawn Fawn cross stitched layers, then inkblended a powder pink sky onto some Bristol smooth cardstock using Tattered Rose Distress Oxide Ink. I splattered it with white ink and metallic Rose Gold Shimmer Spray. I layered some glittery cardstock to create a snowy hillside 

Before attaching my images I cut a wavy sliding channel for my owl to fly across the scene. I used the Slide on Over Waves  channel dies, but I shortened the channel by partially die cutting the length to fit the smaller area. Then I adhered my remaining images across the snowy bottom. I decided to add some glittery snowflakes and discovered that the small assortment of snowflakes in the Magic Iris Snow Globe Add On has the most perfect assortment of snowflakes using only one die and pass through the machine. 

I mounted my image panel onto some mint and navy cardstock layers using adhesive foam tape, making sure to dust the areas around the slider with my powder tool, for easy movement. Once my card was all assembled I felt like my owl was spinning all over the place, so I weighted the bottom of the image with a small metal washer and now my mail man stays upright, and slides easily across the scene. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and reading how I made this card. Make sure to play along using the beautiful January Moodboard by sharing your cards on Instagram with the hashtag #brimoodboard and don’t forget to tag the Butterfly Reflections Ink challenge account @brimoodboardchallenge so we can share your projects. One winner will be randomly selected to win $20 to the shop. 

Thank you, Davina

Heffy Doodle & Miss Ink Collaberation



Hello crafty friends. Today we are celebrating a fun collaboration between two of my favorite brands. Welcome to the Heffy Doodle and Miss Ink Stamps Collaboration Blog Hop! Design team members from both teams are sharing some crafty inspiration using products from both companies! Plus, both stores will be giving away prizes! 

I made a Candy Cane forest, complete with coffee sipping Gnomes, who look comfy cozy in their Christmas pajamas. I love how the bright bold colors look on top of the glittery snowy hillside. I began by choosing some patterned paper to pull my colors from. Then, I inkblended the mint and aqua sky in the upper half of a Bristol paper panel. I splattered with water and perfect pearls before using some gold glitter embossing paste with the Twinkle Twinkle Stencil from Heffy Doodle. 



While that dried, I stamped my gnomes from Miss Ink Stamps Coffee Gnomes, and the candy canes and trees from Heffy Doodles Elfish, Wanna Build a Snowman, and Santa’s Village. I used copic markers to color all of my images, and highlighted with small white dots after diecutting. Next, I trimmed two glittery cardstock hillsides using Slopey Joes  stitched dies from Heffy Doodle. I adhered the two layers together, then mounted them over the embossed background panel using foam tape. I tucked my trees and candy canes around the top leaving space for my Gnomes in the center. I heat embossed the sentiment from Miss Ink Stamps Season’s Greetings onto a red cardstock banner, then glued it at the bottom. I mounted this scene onto a small green layer before securing it to the patterned paper and cardbase. 

I really love how well these two brands blended and hope that you think outside of the box, and blend your crafty supplies at home. It is something I don’t do often enough but I think it’s well past time for me to get mixing! 

Make sure to comment along the way for your chance to win! Miss Ink Stamps will be giving away $25 and Heffy Doodle will be giving away £25 to their respective stores!

Each company will post their random winner on Sunday, December 20th at 10AM EST!  Make sure to check the Heffy Doodle Blog and Miss Ink Stamps Blog to see if you’re a winner!

November BRI Moodboard Color Challenge

 


 Hello Crafty Friends. Davina here with a little BRI Moodboard inspired card today. The November colors  Amanda chose are very easy to play with. Harvest Yellow, Clay Pink, BlackBerry, and Rich Teal make up the quartet of color this month.  

The project I’m sharing today is using a few sets from Paperie Ink. I’m very new to this brand and purchased a few seasonal sets last month. I didn’t have a chance to use them sooner, but I’m so loving how cute these characters are. I combined the stamp sets  Autumn is Calling and Happy Holi-yay, along with Lawn Fawns Meadow Backdrop Die. I stamped all of my images with Momento Rich Cocoa ink and copic colored everything using light and dark shades of this months colors. 


Since there are no coordinating dies for these stamp sets, I had to use the scan n cut. Which worked fine considering I’m never going to fussy cut this many images. I recommend always cutting out before you color you images. The Scan n cut is notorious for mis-reading an image, and therefore not cutting out properly. As for images like the trees, that have small gaps in the outline, use a pencil to fill in the space for a solid cut. It will read the pencil, along with the ink, and cut out the image cleanly. 

Once my images were cut and colored I cut the Meadow Backdrop from some yellow Cardstock and inked the grassy edges with Scattered Straw & Dried Marigold Distress Oxide Inks. Next, I inkblended a pink and purple sky using several colors of Oxide Ink onto white Bristol Smooth Cardstock, then splattered with water, and white and gold ink. Once dry I heat embossed my sentiment onto the sky using Lawn Fawn Gold Embossing Powder

I assembled my card by glueing the Meadow frame onto my inkblended panel, then adhering the trees and sunflowers behind the grassy layers. I popped my border image up with some narrow foam tape, and added the remainder of my images. I brushed some glittery Clear Wink of Stella onto my lights and pumpkins for a little “razzle dazzle”. I’m so happy with how cute these images are and already ordered a few more sets to build my collection of Paperie Ink stamps. 

I hope you like this card and take the time to use the November #BRIMoodboard this month.

Pumpkin Patch with Lawn Fawn and Reverse Confetti

 Hello friends! Davina here, on the blog, with an exciting interactive card to share. My project is another fun example of the beautiful September Moodboard and a mashup between Lawn Fawn & Reverse Confetti products.  

I really love the way these beautiful colors come together. I’ve used them several times this month, in both soft and bold versions, and with stunning results each time. I wanted to use glittery gold cardstock for this camera die and love that I found a curry cardstock, is my stash, that was very similar in tone to pair up with it. 


As usual, all of the products used are available on the Butterfly Reflections Ink website. And I will provide links through this post for all of the products.  

I started by building my camera using the newer Lawn Fawn Magic Iris Camera Die Add On and the Camera Pull Tab Add On dies. I cut the camera 3 times from curry cardstock, glitter gold cardstock, and a Blush striped patterned paper in my stash, trimming off just the stitched strip. I used the circular lens die from the pull tab set to cut the glittery gold, blush pink, and adhesive backed fun foam. 

Next, I assembled the camera. I used LF Glue Tube to glue the gold paper to the curry cardstock.  Then I adhered the blush strip to the front after inkblending a little Tattered Rose Distress Oxide Ink to the edges. I insert the blush cardstock circle into the center of the camera lens and secured with Scotch tape from behind. I sandwiched an acetate circle between the foam stitched lens circle, and the gold circle to create a mini shaker element. Before adding the shaker components to the card, I used the short slot die on the top of the camera for the photo to pull out of. 


Then, I added some small flat sequins onto the pink circle before topping off with the foam circle, completing the small shaker element. I added a few other details to the camera face, like the push tab, and the flash with more liquid glue. 

Now for some coloring! I stamped my super cute images from the new Reverse Confetti set Pick of the Patch set using LF Crunchy Leaf brown ink, and copic colored in shades from the Moodboard. I die cut the images using the coordinating die set, and added small highlights to the images. For the Polaroid, I die cut the frame and tabs, then cut a smaller piece of cardstock that I masked and stamped a single layer scene onto. After coloring, I attached the frame over the top and assembled the pull tab as shown in the LF instructional video for the new camera pull tab. 


I mounted the interactive camera onto my blue and yellow card panel, then adhered my images all over to create the pumpkin patch. I really love how this turned out, and I’ve been playing with it non stop. The brown ink really works well with this color board. There’s still a couple weeks for you to use this color board and link your card into the color challenge on my blog, for your chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the Butterfly Reflections Ink shop. 

Thank you for stopping by,

Davina

September BRI color Challenge

 Hello Inky friends. I hope you are doing well. I’m using the beautiful Sept Moodboard today. This blush, terra cotta, navy, and gold color board is so incredible and versatile. The colors are so trendy currently, and I truly believe that any stamp set will look wonderful with them. 

This large, 5x7 interactive card, uses mostly Avery Elle stamps, along with a Lawn Fawn Scripty die. I have recently hoarded most of the Peek-a-boo Pals stamp sets from Avery Elle, but haven’t used them yet,  so I decided to get busy. After deliberating between a Bumper car slider slimline, rollercoaster, or Ferris wheel I decided on the Ferris wheel. But I wanted a fully rotating one.  I’m so happy with the results,  but it took a lot of trial and error.

Let’s get started. First, because the Ferris wheel from Peek a Boo Fair  is only a partial image, I had to hand draw the wheel on my card. I stamped the Ferris wheel onto some copy paper, rotated the image and stamped it again. Then, I used those stamped images as a guide to draw the inner portion, with a metal ruler and multi liner. I cut the drawn image out with a nested circle die, and inked it with the blush hues Tattered Rose Distress Oxide Ink. I painted the outer rim with gold acrylic paint. 

Next, I stamped the image again, onto bright solar white Neenah Cardstock for my ride compartments (baskets). I used additional images/characters from Peek a Boo Coaster for my other cuties. I also stamped a word bubble from the Speech Bubbles set and heat embossed Woo Hoo! onto it. I used copic markers to color everything before using the coordinating dies to cut everything out. 

I assembled each basket with a character, and reinforced the bottom basket from behind with a second piece of die cut paper. No need to stamp, just the added reinforcement.  After highlighting with small white dots, it was time to create my individual swinging elements. If you just glue them down, they would remain in place (and upside down) when rotating the wheel.

1. I punched 3 office sized holes into the edge of the wheel.  

2. I glued down a small metal washer, to the center and bottom of each basket, to add a little extra weight so they would remain upright without my help.

3. I attached a small plastic sliding disc (MFT Spin & Slide) to the back of each image. Centered in the neck area.

4. Put the disc through the punched hole, and cap off with a small piece of circle punched cardstock

(Larger than hole punch) to hold in place.

5. Check to make sure everything wiggles properly before moving on. 

Next, I created the same type of inner mechanism as the Lawn Lawn reveal wheel.

6. I die cut a 2 1/2 inch circle, and poked a tiny hole into the center. 

7. I poked a tiny hole into the center of the Ferris wheel.

8. I used a brad, with the finished side facing forward, to connect both pieces. I did not open it completely flat against the paper because I wanted it to spin freely. I put the edge of my metal ruler under the brad fasteners to give it plenty of space.

9. Apply multiple foam squares to the backside of that smaller circle. That is how the entire thing will adhere to the card front. 

Even at this point, it was so fun to spin and play with. There is no imagination needed to see how it would work on a card. It turned out perfectly.  

I created some layers of gold, blush pink, and Bristol smooth cardstock to fit onto my Kraft cardbase. I used the old ink smooshing technique and the Tattered Rose Distress Ink (not oxide ink) to color the Bristol cardstock. Then, I splattered with white and gold ink. I die cut the word Smile, using  Lawn Fawns Scripty Smile word die, and inked it with Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Ink to match the coloring. 

Finally, I adhered my wheel to card base and surrounded it with die cut stars and the speech bubble. I adore how this looks on the Kraft cardbase and cannot stop playing with it. I even made a stop motion clip and I’m so proud. I hope you love this and try to make one for yourself .

August Color Challenge

 

Hello my colorful friends! Davina here, using the August BRIMoodboard, and Avery Elle stamps. I really love the jewel tone colors of the current Moodboard and I wanted to let them shine. I have been hoarding so many adorable Avery Elle stamp sets that I haven’t had the chance to use, so I decided to go ahead and dig in. The Fairy Happy  Stamp set was perfect for this gorgeous color palette. 

I started by cutting a piece of white cardstock using some Lawn Fawn Cross-Stitch layers. Then I stamped a navy starry sky using the Avery Elle Starry Scene and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink. Once I stamped it several times and achieved even coverage, I splattered some glittery and white ink onto the stamped image. 

Next, I stamped my images onto Neenah solar white classic crest, then colored them with copic markers in shades of the Moodboard colors. I tried to get a lot of variation using only the four color families, and only added skin and hair tones. After die cutting the images I mounted the 3 main images onto fun foam for extra dimension. Then I used small white dots for highlights. 

I stamped the sentiment across the bottom and added some of the sparkle images in light aqua ink. Then I adhered my stamped images on top of the starry sky to create a simple scene. I rarely leave my backgrounds white like this, and I love how great it looks layered over the purple striped paper.

These colors look so incredible together and I can’t wait to try them on everything I make this month! I hope that you are inspired to use this color board and use the #brimoodboard so we can find your project.
