Hey crafty friends, it’s Amanda from Pear Blossom Press again today. Are you in the Heffy Doodlers Facebook group yet? Every month, we post a new challenge and give you a chance to win a £35 gift card to the Heffy Doodle Shop! (Plus, there’s a ton of nice people and fun shenanigans happening in the group, so I encourage you to join us!)
Before we issue a new challenge, we have to award the prize to our February winner. Please help me congratulate Shell Shearer Swinscoe for her fabulous card! What a great slider card!
In February, I asked everyone what they would prefer for March’s challenge theme, interactive cards, or going green. Interactive won, but green got a lot of votes too. And since I’m the coordinator, I thought why not give everyone what they want? So this month, we have two themes to pick from! Make a card using Heffy Doodle products (mostly) that is INTERACTIVE, or has a GREEN theme. (I’m all for getting creative, so if you want to use recycled elements, instead of the color, I’ll accept that too 😉)
To help kick off the challenge, I made this fun dancing Leprechaun (checking off both the interactive and green boxes – bonus)! It uses a simple lever mechanism to make him sway. I have step-by-step instructions on my blog if you’d like to see the mechanism. I’ll also have a video later this month showing you how I made it (make sure you are subscribed to my YouTube channel if you want to see it).
This card features the Lucky Friends stamp set and coordinating dies, as well as the Lucky and More Strips of Ease dies. The rainbow background was created by using the Rays the Roof stencil as a guide. The pull tab uses a stamp from the Interactively Yours set.
While I was making this card, I was chatting with my friend Tanna. I couldn’t figure out what to do to make the gold glitter Lucky sentiment pop (it was getting lost in the grass). She suggested I create a drop shadow and it worked great! I love having crafty friends! Who do you craft with? Did you know that Lesley (the owner of Heffy Doodle) usually livestreams on Fridays? Make sure you are subscribed to her channel and you can come craft along and chat with everyone! I try to post it in the Heffy Doodlers Facebook group too.
Now are you feeling inspired to enter this month’s challenge? Head on over to the Facebook group and enter your card in this month’s album!
