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!
