Happy Sunday oh creative ones! Did you remember to change your clocks? Most change automatically these days, but I still have an old school. This is a new brand for me and I don’t know why I’m just starting with Heffy Doodle cards now, but the products are adorable! Today, I made a birthday card featuring the Heffy Doodle Chipmly The Best stamp set.
To begin, I cut a panel of Neenah Solar White 80# cardstock to 9.25″ x 3.75″ and used ink blending brushes to create a background. For the first layer I used Distress Oxides and then applied the Heffy Doodle Fancy Foliage Stencil to add another layer of ink. I used inks from The Stamp Market to brighten up the background. I dripped, spattered and dabbed the background for effect and set aside to dry.
Distress Oxides Inks: Twisted Citron, Peeled Paint, Old Paper
The Stamp Market Inks: Leafy, Mossy, Citrine
On Neenah 80# I used Gina K Amalgam Ink in Chocolate Truffle to stamp a bunch of monkeys, branches and bananas. I used my Brother Scan n’ Cut to cut out the stamps, but Heffy Doodle does make coordinating dies for the stamp set. I then colored the cut stamps using Copic Markers:
Monkey: E51, E50, E29, E25, E23, E21, R21, R24. Branches: E44, E42. Leaves 1: YG97, YG95, YG00. Leaves 2: G28, G24, YG21. Bananas: E25, YR30, Y21, Y13
Next, I used the Heffy Doodle Amazonian Leaves dies to cut a bunch (way too many) of leaves in difference colors of cardstock:
Gina K: Fresh Asparagus. Papertrey Ink: Limeade Ice, Simply Chartreuse. The Stamp Market: Leafy.
I laid out the leaves on the top and bottom of the inked panel and used Glad Press and Seal to remove them from the panel so that I could apply the liquid adhesive. I used a white gel pen to add a few highlights.
To finish, I used liquid adhesive to glue the branches and bananas, and thin foam squares to adhere the monkeys. On a scrap of The Stamp Market Leafy cardstock I heat embossed a birthday sentiment from the stamp set, and glued to a white card base.
