Hey crafty friends, it’s Amanda Stevens again, here to announce the winner of the August challenge and issue a new one for September! I’d like to thank everyone who entered the Heffy Doodlers Easy Peasy Challenge last month. There were so many great cards! See all of the entries over in the Heffy Doodlers group on Facebook. You can share your projects and meet new crafty friends. I try to share Lesley’s weekly videos there too as soon as she goes live.
It’s always exciting to see who won, so please help me congratulate Laura Rumble! Her adorable slimline card features the You Go, Gull Stamp Set and the Stitched Alphabetters Die Set. Isn’t it fantastic? I just love eclipse sentiments. Don’t you?
To choose the winner, all entries (except those by Lesley and the current design team) were assigned a number, in order of posting. We used random.org to choose the winning number.
By now, you’ve probably seen everything from the new release, and can’t wait to play! To help inspire you, this month’s challenge is to ADD TEXTURE. This can be actual texture, created with embossing, layers of cardstock, stitching, or a new texture background die. You can also create the illusion of texture with stencils, or ink splatter. It’s up to you!
When you enter this month’s challenge, you’ll have a chance to win a £35 gift voucher! Just create a textured card, using Heffy Doodle products (mostly), and post it in the Facebook album! (See details below.) The challenge starts now in the Heffy Doodlers Facebook Group, and runs through October 3rd, 2021.
To kick off the challenge, I designed this sweet little mini-slimline card…
If you look closely, you’ll see the raised texture on the heat embossed sentiments, stitching on the banners, and splatter over the die cut textured background. Plus, there are quite a few layers of cardstock, and several are popped up with foam tape. This card is anything but flat!
Isn’t it sweet? Head on over to my blog for all of the details…pearblossompress.com.
Here are the Heffy Doodle products I used:
Mole Lotta Love Stamp and Die Set (free with £45 purchase through Sept 8, 2021)
Tiny Tag Trio Dies
Very Vertical Greeting Stamps
Woodgrain Texture Background Die
Ready to play along? Pull out your Heffy Doodle stamps and create a textured card of your own! (It does not need to feature products from the new release.) To enter, go to the Heffy Doodlers Facebook Group and post a picture of your project in the September 2021 Challenge album (it will be pinned to the top). Enter as many cards as you like. The winner will be randomly chosen from all entries posted prior to Midnight (UT) on October 3, 2021. You are not limited to cards, feel free to post tags, scrapbook pages, home decor projects, etc. Just be sure the bulk of the stamps and dies used are from Heffy Doodle, and you add some texture. Good luck my friend!
Questions, just ask. Need some more inspiration to get you started? Check out all of the new products in the shop! Be sure to place your order by September 8th, 2021 to receive the Mole Lotta Love Stamp Set for free! (If you spend over £45, you’ll get the coordinating die, too!) This set isn’t available for sale; the only way to get it is to order by September 8th.
Remember, you enter the challenge in the Facebook group, not here. Oh, and let’s keep it PG please 😉
I’ll be back on October 5th to announce the winner and the next challenge. Until then, I’ll see you on Facebook…
