Heffy Doodle New Release Inspiration Blog Hop

Welcome to the Heffy Doodle New Release Inspiration Blog Hop!  We are so excited to share amazing cards from our Design Team members using the new release!  For today’s special Blog Hop, you can win a £50 voucher to the Heffy Doodle store!

I’m super excited to share the card that I made! I wanted to see how much of the New Release I could show off to you in one A2 card!
Here are the products I am showcasing:
Flock Star Stamps and Dies
Be Hoppy Stamps and Dies
Special Delivery Stamps and Dies
Build a Pond Dies
Freshly Cut Grass Dies
Ripple Waves Stencil
Sky High Cloud Backdrop Die
Stitched Birthday Trio (A2) Frame Dies (from an older release)

I love seeing how people “sketch out” their ideas for their cards, so I wanted to show you how I do it! This is how I visual the card: I knew I wanted to use the Stitched Birthday Trio Frame so I die cut that out first. Then, I lay out my stamped images and any other dies I want to use. I then take a photo so I can remember how I have things laid out!

Next, I stamp my images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on a piece of 3″ wide Catherine Pooler Premium Cardstock. I use 3″ so that I can fit the cardstock through my Heffy Doodle Mini Die Cutting Machine!

I’ve also cut out my pond and grass from the Build a Pond Dies.

Now, I’m going to ink blend my pond and grass and 1 panel cutout. I’m using Catherine Pooler’s Melon Ice and Martini for the grass. I’m also using All That Jazz and Uptown for the Ripple Waves Stencil pond. I LOVE this color combo! I like to do my ink blending before coloring my stamped images so that I can make sure my stamped images coordinate with the ink colors.

For my top panel, I’m using the Sky High Cloud Backdrop Die and Limoncello ink. For my middle panel, I’m using Limoncello as well.

So, now I can color my images! I’m using OLO Alcohol Markers to color my images. I add highlights with my ABSOLUTE FAV white Gelly Roll pen.

Let’s cut these little guys out now! Like I mentioned earlier, I use 3″ wide cardstock so that I can run it through my Mini Die Cutting Machine! If you don’t have a mini die cutting machine, you HAVE to get one! They’re also available on, if you’re in the US!

Using my frame as a guide (held in place with washi tape), I’m gluing my panels down with Glubert Glue.

For my frame, I’m using Deep Foam Tape because I want it to really have a LOT of dimension!

The last step is to add my images with 3D foam squares! For some of the images, I used 2 foam squares on top of each other to get even more dimension!

Here are some close-up images!
