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!

Heffy Doodle and Trinity Stamps Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to the Heffy Doodle and Trinity Stamps Collaboration Blog Hop! Our design teams have come together to share some amazing inspiration featuring Heffy Doodle and Trinity Stamps products, and there are prizes up for grabs, too!

I used a plethora of products from both Trinity Stamps and Heffy Doodle to create these cute projects! They work so well together and are so fun to play with!

To make my slimline card, I cut a 3.5 x 8.5 panel and stamped Trinity Stamps’ Awesome Human image pretty much in the center. Then I inked the panel up with distress inks and colored the image with copic markers. Next I stamped, colored and die cut my images from Heffy Doodle’s Superdudes and Rescue Dog.

I laid everything out to get a general idea where I wanted my stenciling. Once I figured it out, I grabbed my Shine Brighter stencil from Trinity Stamps and added white glitter glitz gel. Once that was dry, I used the Trinity Slimline Scenic Borders die set to create some clouds with iridescent vellum. Last, I popped my images on with a combination of foam tape and liquid glue.

I thought this card could use a little something else so using the Trinity Stamps Frame and Fold dies, I cut a red frame and adhered it before starting on my finishing touches.

I added white gel pen accents throughout the stamped images and Stickles to all of the stars. Then I finished it off with glossy accents to the masks, shoes and chests of the super heroes and don’t forget the puppy’s nose.

I thought it would be so fun to make a tag to go with this great card so it could be given as a gift set. I loved the a-typical shape of Heffy Doodle’s Tag Along set and couldn’t wait to try it!

To make this, I die cut the main tag shape, inked it up like the card and then used my Trinity Stamps Shine Brighter stencil about where I wanted the girl to stand. This time I used VersaMark Ink and glitter embossing powder with the stencil so it was flat and the shaker bits wouldn’t get stuck.

Next, I die cut the tag frame 6 times from the coordinating colors of cardstock – red, yellow and blue – and glued them all together to the tag base. I die cut one additional red frame and another full tag shape from acetate for my window.

I sprinkled in some Trinity Stamps Popcorn Sugarstars and yellow Funfetti Love embellishments and closed the tag up. I stamped and die cut my sentiment from a banner in the Heffy Doodle Tag Along set and popped it on the front with foam tape. Then I popped my images on with foam tape as well and added a couple more yellow hearts from the Funfetti Love mix to fill in the banner.

To finish this cute tag off, I added the hole reinforcer in blue (it comes in the Tag Along die set) and some yellow and blue baker’s twine from my stash. Then I added white gel pen accents to the images and glossy accents just like the images on the card.

GIVEAWAY
Trinity Stamps and Heffy Doodle will be giving away $25 and 25£ vouchers, respectively, to their stores! Winners will be chosen randomly from the comments of the blogs and announced on Tuesday, March 24th on the Heffy Doodle and Trinity Stamps blogs.

Heffy Doodle – Super Dudes!

Hello everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready to tackle a new week! ❤ I’m excited to finally own some Heffy Doodle stamps so that I can play along with their Facebook group challenges. This month you can choose between going green or interactive cards! For my first entry I decided to try a green and teal color palette with the Super Dudes and Rescue Dogs stamp sets.

I started by stamping, coloring and die cutting my Heffy Doodle images and then moved on to setting up my scene. I used cracked pistachio distress ink with my Newton’s Nook Clouds stencil to create a sky and then inked some cardstock with mowed lawn distress ink and die cut it with my Newton’s Nook Land Borders grass die. Then I took both pieces and used one of the Newton’s Nook Frames and Flags dies to cut a rounded rectangle. I glued it all together and added my images. Then I took the largest Newton’s Nook Frameworks die and cut it from white cardstock. I adhered that panel to a teal cardbase with foam tape and then popped my scene panel up with foam tape as well.

This is when I put my card into my MISTI and stamped my sentiment from Super Dudes in green ink. Next I moved on to finishing touches which started with white gel pen accents on the images. Then I added glossy accents to the super dudes and rescue dog. Last I added Stickles to the stars for a little glittery fun too.

I had fun keeping to a limited color palette for this card and will definitely be entering it into the Facebook group challenge. Next, I think it’s time to make these fun super heroes do something interactive!

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