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.
