Creating a Vibrant Rainbow Background

Hey friends! If you’re not signed up for the Club Sursee subscription through Catherine Pooler, YOU SHOULD BE! I love these kits!! So many fun things to be surprised by every month!! This cards’ products came from the January 2023 Club Sursee box!

When creating a rainbow background, I always start with the yellow first in the center of the card (in this case, Limoncello). Next, I’ll blend Oh Boy! along the entire bottom and blend it a little with the Limoncello. Then, I’ll blend Pucker Up on the entire top of the panel. Then, I’ll blend the very bottom of the panel with Pucker Up to create a violet color. I’ll then grab Oh Boy! again and blend the top of the panel to create a fuchsia color. Next, I’ll grab Limoncello again and blend it out into the pink and blue once more.

To create a “shadow” on the Lucky Word Die, I cut the word twice; once with white cardstock and one with black cardstock. Then, I just offset the black and glued them together! It’s an easy way to help your word dies POP!

How to Use Solid Stamp Florals

Hey crafty friends! Today, I’m sharing a card I made using the Clovers and Blooms Stamp Set from the January 2023 Club Sursee! This stamp set is available for purchase outside of the subscription now, so you can get yours today!!

Using floral stamps that are completely solid is personally outside of my comfort zone! If you know me, I love to color in outlined images much more than using solid stamps! So, this set was a fun challenge for me! I wanted to share how I created this card with you!

First, I picked my color palette. This is (in my opinion) the make or break moment when it comes to using solid stamps. I used the Free Download Color Wheel from Catherine Pooler to help me make this decision! If you haven’t downloaded it yet, you need to! It’s a life saver!!

So, I’ve chosen Limoncello, Tiara, Pucker Up, Melon Ice, and Minted. Then, I just go crazy with stamping them! I make sure for each color, I have a large and a small option. Having too many flowers and leaves is NOT a problem. It’s better to have a full bouquet than one that looks bare!

Next, I die cut the images with the coordinating dies and then start laying them out on my card panel. This is super time consuming for me, but it’s probably not for everyone! I just move them around until I feel like it’s looking good! With this card, I’m also planning around my sentiment. When that is the case, I lay my stamp down where I think I’m going to want it so that I can visual it.

Once I get my flowers arranged how I like them, I TAKE A PHOTO with my phone! That way, I can use that as a guide for positioning them once I’ve got glue and 3D foam squares on them!

Once I take my photo, I leave my sentiment stamp where it is and place my card panel in my MISTI. I stamp my sentiment with Midnight Ink. Then, I start assembling my bouquet again, with glue and 3D foam squares! Phew! Good thing I have that photo to look back to! The last step is to add some black dots with any black marker!

Well, that wasn’t too hard! I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial!! Xx, Amanda

Let’s Create an Ocean Scene!

Hello and Happy Tuesday, crafty friends!! I hope your week is off to a great start so far! Let’s make this Heffy Doodle Mix and Match card together!

Let’s start with the background! First, we’re going to blend a piece of white cardstock trimmed down to 4″x5.25″. Blend the top of the panel (that will be visible) with Catherine Pooler’s Pucker Up ink. Then, blend Catching Rays ink through the Rays the Roof Stencil. The Simple Sunburst Stencil would also work great here. Next, die cut one of the Silver Linings Cloud Border Dies and add a bit of the Pucker Up ink to the top of it. Now, die cut 4 of the Breaking Waves Border Dies. Ink blend the waves with Minted, Seafoam, and Skylight inks. Spritz all the ink blended areas with water. For the waves, take a bit of the Skylight and flick it with a water brush onto the waves. Do the same with the sky and clouds using Pucker Up.

Now that we have our background done and drying, we can start working on stamping and coloring! Stamp the images from the You Go, Gull and Special Delivery stamp sets. Color them with whatever medium you like! I’m using the OLO alcohol markers. Once they’re all colored, they’re ready to be die cut with the coordinating dies.

The final step is to adhere everything down to an A2 sized white card base! I’ve used my favorite Bearly Arts Precision Craft Glue to attach my clouds and top 2 waves. I’ve used 3D foam tape to attach the bottom 2 waves. Then, I’ve used 3D foam squares for the stamped images and sentiment!

For the finishing touch, I added a few sequins! Did you see the Heffy Doodlers Challenge this month on Facebook? If you like adding sequins to your projects, you might want to enter and maybe win a prize!! You can JOIN HERE!

Well, friends, I hope you’re feeling inspired from this post! Tag me on Instagram if you make a project using this as inspiration!! I’d love to see how you made it your own!! Xx, Amanda

Hey friends! You can shop the BRAND NEW RELEASE from Catherine Pooler NOW! Keep scrolling to see how I made this card featuring the In the Amazon Bundle.

To create this shaker card, I started by die cutting the Deepest Darkest Peru Cover Plate on white cardstock. I ink blended Melon Ice and Grass Skirt, focusing the lighter shade of green towards the center.

On my pre-scored card base, I blended Grass Skirt. I spritzed my die cut and card base with water. Then, I splattered my favorite white and black acrylic paints (mixed with water) onto both.

Next, I stamped my images from the Jungle Amigos Stamp Set and then colored them with alcohol markers. I like to add highlights with the a white gelly roll pen. Once I was finished coloring, I cut them using the coordinating Jungle Amigos Dies.

To create the shaker portion of the card, I trimmed an acetate sheet to a teeny bit smaller than my die cut frame. I adhered the sheet to my frame using redline tape. Then, I applied 3D foam tape to create depth between the layers and hold my Big Apple Sequin Mix shakers inside.

I propped my cute sloth and branch up using my favorite 3D foam squares. I used Bearly Arts Precision Glue to glue my flowers on.

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 ยฃ50 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 Scrapbook.com, 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!

Bullet Journal – Weekly Layout Ideas

Hey friends! Are you into bullet journaling? Do you struggle with your layouts? Do you always use the same layout? Do you have an IG account I should follow?? Comment below!! I can’t wait to hear from you!

Today, I’m showing some of my weekly layout ideas!

I use the Catherine Pooler Canvo Bullet Journal. It is 150 numbered pages, and at 199gsm, the pages are SO thick! So you can use inks, pens, markers, and more without worrying about it bleeding through. There’s also a slew of stencils that coordinate perfectly with the journal. The dots are gray, not too light and not too dark.

I use LePen Black Pens (usually 0.3 and 0.5) and Zebra Mildliner Creative Markers.

Heffy Doodle + Chibitronics IG Hop

Hey friends! Did you see we’re doing a Collaboration Hop between Heffy Doodle and Chibitronics on Instagram!? There are prizes are up for grabs!!

I created this fun light-up card using the Craft with Light Kit – White by Chibitronics. I used lots of Heffy Doodle products! Keep reading on for those links!

First, I created my bright background! I blended some Catherine Pooler inks through my Zapp Attack and Cogs & Code Stencil. I used Heffy Memo Tape to mask off the top and bottom of my card.

I stamped my images from the Bots of Love Stamp Set and then I colored them in with OLO markers. I cut them out using the coordinating dies.

Once I decided where I wanted my lights, I started to prepare for the wiring.

  1. I poked holes through the robots’ hearts where I want the bulbs to show.
  2. Then, I placed the robots on the background where they were going to be glued down once the card is assembled. I made a mark with a pencil through the robots’ heart holes onto the background.
  3. Then, I poked holes through the pencil marks on the background panel.
  4. Lastly, I used a pencil to make marks on my card base where the lights need to be placed.

On my card base, using the pencil marks I made in the last step as a guide, I’ve made marks where the + and – wires need to line up. I did this by taking the lights and placing them down onto my card base so the light was right over top of the pencil mark. Then, I looked at where the copper + and – are on the light unit and drew lines where I need the wires to be lined up to touch the copper part.

I’ve also created a “housing unit” for my battery with a plus and minus sign on it, so I know which way to insert the battery once it’s time. I also marked where I want the battery to be on the card base.

Next, I started by taking my tape and cutting it in half down the center to create smaller/narrower pieces. This isn’t necessary, but was helpful with navigating the tape.

I adhered my battery housing unit to my card base and started placing my + tape. This tape is the top wire which goes to the base of the battery housing unit.

Then, I placed my – tape which starts on the flap of the battery housing unit.

Next, I used 3D foam tape around the whole base of the card to “lift” my card front up so the battery doesn’t stick out farther than the rest of front panel. I attached the stamped images with 3D foam squares, making sure to line the robots up to the lights properly.

Come join in the IG HOP to enter to win the prizes from Heffy Doodle and Chibitronics!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! Enjoy the Hop!

Life is Better with YOU

Hey friends! How do we feel about the color purple?? I tend to lean towards the pinks and yellows for my cards, for whatever reason. However, I am loving this color combo of Sixteen Candles, Pixie Dust, and Drive-In! What do you think??

Today, I am sharing a new card using the NEWLY RELEASED Love and Lace Collection from Catherine Pooler!

I created this beautiful card using the Yours Truly Stamp Set. After I ink blended my purple inks, I stamped the elements from the Yours Truly Stamp Set all around the background with black ink.
I created the white frame using the new Fancy Loop Die.
I stamped my sentiment from the Forever Yours Sentiments Stamp Set with WOW Embossing Glue Ink and then applied white embossing powder to it. I heated it up with my favorite new heat tool!

Stay tuned as I continue to share more projects made using this New Collection!

DIY Gift Card Pocketfold using the Thank You Kindly Bundle

Hey friends! Did you come to learn how to make this gift card holder? It’s SO easy to make! Craft along with me! Grab your scoring board and bone folder, a piece of 8.5″x11″ cardstock, some patterned paper, some stamp sets and some dies!

Start by creating your pocketfold out of 8.5″x11″ cardstock and your scoring board. On the longer edge, score at 3″ and 8″. Turn the paper 90 degrees and score the shorter edge at 2 3/8″ and 6 1/8″. Using scissors, cut your corners off completely. Fold and score on the remaining score lines. Use a corner punch to round your corners.

Now, you can decorate your pocketfold! Use patterned paper, such as the Bee Thankful Paper Pad! I also used the Ruffles and Dashes Dies to add a stitched border to my inside paper.

Don’t forget to decorate both sides!

Now, let’s make the gift card holder pocket. Using the 2nd smallest scallop frame from the Ruffles and Dashes Dies, cut out a piece of patterned cardstock. You want the inside of your pocket to be 2″ x 3.5″. Make a score line on your sides at 3/4″. Trim off the bottom so you’re left with 2 3/4″. Score the bottom so you have a 3/4″ flap. Use scissors to angle cut the 2 bottom corners.

Now create some decorations! I used the Corner Swag Stamp Set and the Thank You Kindle Stamp Set. I used OLO markers to color in my stamped images and a Gelly Roll pen to create my highlights. I cut out the stamped images with the coordinating die sets.

To hold my pocketfold together, I punched 2 holes on the front flap and the bottom flap and threaded through some Torch Twine.

Stay tuned as I continue to share more projects made using this New Collection!

Craftroom Tour!

Hey guys! I’m so excited to share some updated photos of my craftroom! If you have any questions at all, please feel free to message me on Instagram or leave a comment on this post!

The pegboard and accessories are from IKEA!

These are the Alex drawers from IKEA. That’s my Bernadoodle pup – Knox! He says, “HI!” This is where I take all my photos of my projects!

My hubs made me these amazing marker holders! You can see his work at www.onecraftyguy.com or follow him on Facebook or Instagram!

He also made me the ink pad holders!

I did find these Ink Pad Storage on Scrapbook.com that are similar!

I love having everything sorted by rainbow! These are acrylic jars I got from Amazon. I also ordered a bunch of different twines and ribbons from Amazon and sorted them all by color.

I love having my colored cardstock nearby, so I keep them in their packaging and have them organized in my cart. I used IKEA’s dish separator to keep them up straight!

Thank you SO much for coming to my blog today! As always, I REALLY appreciate when you use my affiliate links (which can be found throughout my post).

–> I have 2 RAINBOW BLENDS TO SHARE with you!

Blend 1:
For my first card, I’m blending:
* Pitstop Pink
* Lemon
* Blue Raspberry

Blend 2:
For my second card, I’m blending:
* Flamingo
* Yellowstone
* Vegas Strip

For both of my cards, I’m using the CUTEST Maker Forte stamp set called Grovehill Farm. You can see the rest of the products used below!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! To shop any of these products, you can use the affiliate links in my post! It doesn’t cost anything to you, but it does give me a teeny percentage which helps to fund my crafty tutorials for YOU! So THANK YOU for coming to my blog and using my links! I appreciate you!

See you in the IG Hop!!

Xx, Amanda
