Sindhu here. Hope you are having a great week. This is my first post for Heffy Doodle blog and I’m super excited!
I made a set of three cards that are super fun to make.
I first die cut a bunch of coloured card stock sheets using the Heffy cuts- ‘Strips of ease‘ and ‘Stitched strips of ease‘. There are three standalone dies in each set and I ran them through my die cutting machine without separating them. I also saved the thin strips that are left out to make a bonus card.
Here is the first one-
I started by covering a printer paper with adhesive and adhered the strips diagonally. Then, I trimmed off the edges and die cut a circle window. I also die cut the word ‘hey’ using Hey- Heffy cuts. I covered the diecut with a layer of Wink of Stella and applied a coat of ‘Morning Dew’ Nuvo crystal drops.
I assembled the card by adhering the diagonal panel to a card base and stuck the die cut word. I stamped a sentiment from ‘Whatcha Sayin’‘ stamp set to complete the card.

For the second card, I followed the same steps as the first except that I used Stitched strips of ease instead of their stitched counterparts and used a die cut word instead of the whole panel.
I also dry embossed the background using the ‘Stitched strips of ease‘. Dry embossing in the background adds a lot of interest to a simple card while not dominating the focal image.
I heat embossed the sentiments from ‘Whatcha Sayin’‘ stamp set and cut them out using the ‘Whatcha Sayin” Heffy cuts. I also went over the die cut sentiment using copic markers in same colours as the coloured card stock strips. As the coloured card stock is a bit glossy, the Copic ink pools giving a fun result.
For the last card, I used the left over strips from die cutting. They are thinner than the actual die cuts but still are good to work with. I followed the same steps as the first card but die cut a heart which I used as a focal image. For this card too, I dry heat embossed the background using the ‘Stitched strips of ease‘ Heffy cuts. I heat embossed the sentiment from ‘Whatcha Sayin’‘ stamp set and die cut it using the ‘Whatcha Sayin” Heffy cuts.

Aren’t they fun to make? You could also use scraps of patterned papers for a completely different look.
I hope you like the cards. Have a great week..
