Hello, crafty friends! Michelle Murray with you today and I am excited to guest design for Heffy Doodle stamps!! When I received the whimsical Elfish Antics set (HFD | SSS), I was taken back to my childhood memories and all of those classic Christmas shows we used to watch!
For my first project I chose to use the snow-covered ornament included in this set. I instantly had this vision for my card to show that whimsical stamps can be used to create an elegant design. I like to use the smaller images in stamp sets to create interesting cards and backgrounds. I just love the cream/olive/gold color combination.
To start I die cut several ornaments. I heat embossed the images with Ranger Princess Gold embossing powder, and colored the bauble and holly portions with Prismacolor pencils. For added texture (and because I look for any excuse to use this pen) I used my snow marker to add “snow” to the top of each ornament; watching the ink puff up is as magical as watching embossing powder melt!
Once those pieces were finished I turned to making my panel. For this project I used cream (110#) and olive (65#) card stocks. I used MFT wonky stitched die for outer border and the Silly Stitched circle die from Lil’ Inker Designs for interest around the sentiment. As a final touch to the panel I embossed the edges with the same gold EP.
From there, I layered the finished panel onto a 4.25×5.5 (A2) olive-colored panel to bring everything together. All this was mounted onto a cream base. Red Nuvo Drops added the final touch.
Thanks for giving me a few moments of your time. I do hope you will stop by the Heffy Doodle shop and blog for loads of inspiration! I will be seeing you soon with a couple more projects, until then happy crafting!
