Pink & Main | Heffy Doodle Collaboration

I am SO EXCITED to be joining in on the fun of the Pink & Main | Heffy Doodle collaboration hop! It was a total blast to mix and match products from these two amazing companies and create a super fun, surprise card! I hope you enjoy it.

To create my card, I pulled out the Pink & Main Berry Sweet stamp set and the Heffy Doodle Big Bug Hugs stamp set and started stamping images, lots of images. I colored everything with my copic markers and used the coordinating dies for each stamp set to cut the images out. Then I moved on to my background panel. For that, I blended chipped sapphire, broken china and tumbled glass distress oxide inks for the sky and tea dye and vintage photo for the dirt. Then I spritzed the panel with water. I wanted extra texture so I flicked watered down chipped sapphire on the top portion and ground espresso on the bottom portion. I didn’t cover it at all, just aimed my flicking one way or another.

Next, I used the Close the Gate die by cutting the gate and fence twice from kraft cardstock. Then I cut the hinges and handle from dark gray. I used blending brushes to ink up the edges of the wood with tea dye distress ink and the metal pieces with a teeny bit of black soot distress ink. I trimmed the gate off of one of the wood pieces so I just had fence for the other side of my card.

I started playing with final placement of my images so I knew what I was gluing directly to the card panel and what I was going to pop up with foam squares and strips. Once that I was decided I used their placement to decide where to stamp and heat emboss the first half of my sentiment, which is from Big Bug Hugs. I did this before actually gluing any images down.

Now for the fun part! I adhered images like some foliage and that sweet bear nomming on his strawberry directly to the inked panel. Then I popped everything else up with a combination of foam strips or squares, except the snail which I glued directly to the gate. Finally, I added the whole panel to a white card base.

Moving on to the finishing touches, I added glossy accents to the bear’s noses, flower centers, and mushroom spots. I used black glaze pen on the bug’s eyes and last I added star dust Stickles to the bee and butterfly wings.

To complete my card and really show how awesome these adorable sets work together, I pulled a sentiment from Berry Sweet, plus images from both stamp sets to stamp on the inside of my card.

Isn’t this just adorable!?! I love it so much and can’t get over how amazing these products play together!

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!

  1. Absolutely love this card! Especially when you open the gate to another cute bear. I have the bear stamps/dies so this gives me inspiration. Another great idea on your blog that I am going to use is the water on the background. Never thought of that!
