Heffy Doodle, Maker Forte, and SugarPea Designs Collaboration Blog Hop

Welcome to the Heffy Doodle, Maker Forte, and SugarPea Designs Collaboration Blog Hop!
Design Team members from all three companies are sharing inspiration using products from all three companies!

Today, I am sharing 2 cards that I made using tons of awesome products from these companies!

For my interactive pull tab and slider card, I’m starting by stamping my images from the Heffy Doodle Otter Side and You Go, Gull stamp sets and the Sugar Pea Designs Captain of My Heart and Waves of Love stamp sets. To ensure I get a really crisp stamped image, I’m using my Smoosher Tool from Maker Forte and my MISTI. I’m coloring my images with Copic markers and then cutting the images out with my Die Cutting Machine.

Next, I’m ready to create my background and pull tab element. I am blending Yellowstone Color Hive ink and Rah Rah Skirt Ink to create my sky. I’ve also used a Splatter Stamp, Clear Ink, and Kaleidoscope Powder to create some metallic gold splatters in my background. For my pull-tab element, I’m using the Slimline Pull Tab Dies.

Now I’m ready to create my waves. I’m using some colored cardstock and the Breaking Waves Dies, plus the Wavy Water Slides to create my coordinating wave slider.

I’m ready to start assembling! I’m using Deep Foam tape, Glubert Glue and SuperTape to adhere my pieces to my card.

To create this shadow box card, I first cut my pieces out using the Heffy Doodle Big Shadow Box Dies. I cut the front piece and side pieces down using the Slopey Joe Border Dies. For my sides, I blended Yellowstone Color Hive ink and then added crabs using the Rah Rah Skirt Ink and the Just a Pinch Stencil.

For my front, I created sand using Copic markers. For my waves, I used the Breaking Waves Dies.

For my images, I am using the same sets as my first card. I’ve stamped my images, used Copic markers to color them, and now I’m attaching my little fishies and birds to small strips of acetate.

To make assembling my card easier, I am using my favorite Rainbow Tweezers.

And, that’s it! Both cards completed!

  1. Great cards. Love the pull tab for the children as they always live interactive cards. Thank you for sharing your creativity


  2. Two things I never tire of….interactive cards and box cards! Both are so adorable and I love all the colors you used. Also love this collaboration of such great companies!


  3. I am curious how the pull tab works. Does the walrus pop up or does it somehow move the otter back and forth? I will check the “Tube” for a video.


  4. So detailed! I never have the patience to make interactive cards but maybe I should try them sometime! They look so fun!


  5. I love an interactive card, what fun to anticipate what it will do. Wow the colors and critters and design is terrific and fun. I’ve not made a box card yet, super cute! I cherish my you go guls set! Love that sentiment shore do miss you, funny!
