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 Β£50 voucher to the Heffy Doodle store!

You can shop the BRAND NEW RELEASE HERE!

Get your Sweetie Pie stamp set for FREE with a Β£30 spend (not inc. shipping). And get the coordinating dies too with a Β£45+ spend!

To create this trifold card, I started with a sheet of cardstock trimmed to 4.5″ x 11″. I scored at the 3″ mark and the 6″ mark.

For all of my rainbow blending, I’m using Maker Forte’s Color Hive Inks in the colors Flamingo, Yellowstone, and Vegas Strip. This is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE rainbow blend! You can get a huge range of colors from just these 3 colors!

Here’s how I get the best blend:
1. I start with Yellowstone and blend it in the center of my cardstock.
2. Next, I blend Flamingo on the top of my cardstock (reaching all the way to the top). I gently blend the Flamingo into the Yellowstone to create an orange color.
3. I grab my Vegas Strip and repeat the process on the bottom of the cardstock.
4. Now, I take my Vegas Strip and blend a purple at the very tippy top of the cardstock to create a pinky-purple blend.
5. Then, I get my Flamingo again and blend at the very bottom of the cardstock to create a blue-purple blend.
6. If needed, I will take my Yellowstone brush and just lightly blend into the Flamingo and Vegas Strip.
7. I usually also spritz my background with a Mister Perfect Spray Bottle filled with regular water. I will also sometimes flick white watercolor paint using a Watercolor Brush.

For this panel, I blended my rainbow using the new Bean Scene Stencil. To create a little peek-a-boo, I’m using the flap die from the Slimline Scallop Peekaboo Dies.

If you were wondering what sort of black and white paper I’m using for my striped paper, you’ll be happy to know that I made it myself! I simply used the chisel end of a marker! I wanted them to look hand-drawn, so I just freehanded it! Easy peasy!

For this little panel, I’ve used the new Notre Dame Stencil! I’ve also made some more peekaboos using the little dies from the Treemendous Peekaboo Dies.

For my front panel, I’ve used the Love is Everywhere Stencil. I have also used my new favorite tool (the Cropadile!) to add some eyelets to the front of my card to hold my baker’s twine! I made sure to add my eyelets and twine before gluing down the inside panel!

For my sentiment, I’ve used the Gumbelievable Stamp Set and stamped the sentiment on black cardstock using Embossing Glue. Then, I sprinkled white embossing powder to the sentiment and melted the powder with a heat gun.

For my super adorable shaker lollipop, I’ve used the NEW Sweet Tooth Shaker Dies! Omg, are they adorable or what?! You can make all sorts of sweets and shakers! For my stripes, I used my chisel marker again! I mixed and matched Sparkle Mixes to get all the colors of the rainbow in there.

For my adorable candy jar and gumball machine, I’ve used the Gumbelievable Stamp Set again and then added a layer of Glossy Accents over top! I used OLO markers to color all my images.

For my little circles, I used the circle confetti dies that come in the Sweet Tooth Shaker Dies.

I hope you have LOVED seeing how I made this rainbowy fun mini trifold card!

Next, I’m grabbing the Pawsome Stamps Picture Perfect Stamp Set, stamping my images and then coloring them with Copic markers.

I’m going to pair these adorable frames with the Heffy Doodle Popping By and Bed Heads Stamp Sets.

Now I’m ready to assemble my card! I’m using 3D foam squares to adhere my stamped images onto my card front. I’m using Glubert Glue to adhere some gems as well!

For my second card, I’m grabbing my Heffy Doodle Fancy Foliage Stencil and Catherine Pooler’s Chiffon, Glitz, and Limoncello inks. I’m blending the inks, then spritzing the background with water and flicking on some white paint mixed with water.

I’m using the same Pawsome Stamps Picture Perfect Stamp Set and pairing the frames with the Heffy Doodle Koality Hugs Stamp Set this time!

After stamping and die cutting my images, I’m using 3D foam squares to adhere my stamped images onto my card front. I’m using Glubert Glue to adhere some gems on this card as well!

Blessed to Be Your Friend

I have been busy playing with the October Subscription Box.

I’m sharing a video tutorial with you today making this super sweet fall card. I hope you have some time to watch it! If you’re interested in how to color with Copic markers, I walk through coloring in these cute little guys!

I used the stencil that was included in the October Subscription Box to create this bright and beautifully blended background! I blended Squeezed Lemon, Mustard Seed, and Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxides. To keep my stencil in place, I used Pixie Spray Adhesive. The cardstock that I use to get the BEST blending is the Snow Flurries Perfect Blend Card Fronts.

For my images, I used Pink and Main’s Happy Fall stamp set. I stamped using Hero Arts Intensified Black ink because it is alcohol-friendly ink. I colored the images with Copic markers and then die cut them using the coordinating dies.

To make these glittery leaves, I stamped the images with Color Hive Hexagonal Embossing Glue Ink Pad. I brushed on a bit of the Nebula Kaleidoscope Powder using the Rose Gold Dual Tip Powder Brush. All of these items were included in the October Subscription Box!


I trimmed the yellow stenciled background cardstock down to 4″ x 5.25″. I cut a piece of purple cardstock down so that it was just a bit larger. I adhered these card fronts to a card base that was 8.5″ x 5.5″. I adhered my stamped images to my card front using 3D foam squares.

If you weren’t signed up before October 14th and missed out on this box, you can check back later here to see if it’s available as a One-Off. All the subscription options can be found here.

I cannot wait to see what’s in the November box! How about you?!

I really hope you enjoyed my post! I can’t wait to share some more posts with you in November!! Xoxo, Amanda

Retail Therapy – City Streets

Hello crafty friends! I hope everyone is staying happy and healthy!

I made this card before this terrible Coronavirus epidemic. Now, I’m posting it because we all need a little reminder of what’s to come after this is all over! (Or, if you’re like me, you are already treating yourself to a little online retail therapy!!)

To make this card, I started with creating my own street using a ruler and my Copic markers. I used T7, T6, T5, and T4 to create the street.

I used Antique Linen distress ink and this cloud stencil to create a neutral sky.

I stamped my images from the Sunny Studio City Streets stamp set and colored them in with my Copic markers. To keep a certain color palette, I used the same markers throughout all the stamped images.

I stamped my sentiment with Versamark Watermark ink and used white detail embossing powder. I used my heat tool to emboss the sentiment.

I cut the images out with the coordinating dies and adhered them to my card front with 3D foam adhesive.

Here are a few close-up photos!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Stay healthy!! Xoxo, Amanda
