October Challenge – Color Snapshot

Hey crafty friends, It’s Amanda from Pear Blossom Press again, here to announce the winner of the September challenge and issue a new one for October! I’d like to thank everyone who entered the Heffy Doodlers Feeling Sentimental challenge last month. There were so many great cards! Make sure you’ve joined 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.

I know you’re excited to see who won, so without further ado, please help me congratulate Wanda Guess on her winning entry! Isn’t her crabby beach scene awesome? I love it! You can see Wanda’s card, along with all of the other entries in the Facebook album. All entries (except those by Lesley and the current design team) were assigned a number, in order of posting. We used to choose the winning number.

You may have noticed some changes in the design team’s series lately. We’ve been switching things up for more variety, and to offer you exciting new ideas. This month, we thought it would be fun to highlight one of the new series for the Heffy Doodlers Challenge. Did you see Davina’s Halloween Color Snapshot? The palette is perfect for fall themed cards. It inspired my card today, and I hope it will inspire one for you too. We’d love to see what you make! Using Heffy Doodle products (mostly), create a card with a similar color snapshot. Post it in the challenge album and enter to win a £35 shop credit! (No tricks, just treats!) The challenge starts now in the Heffy Doodlers Facebook Group, and runs through November 1st.

To help kick off the challenge, I created a simple scene from die cut pieces, using the new Mini Die Cutting Machine. Have you seen it yet? It’s adorable, and really handy! I don’t know about you, but my desk never seems to be large enough once I start crafting. This new machine has a small footprint, but with it’s 3″ x 6″ plates, I was able to die cut all of the pieces for this card, except for the card base itself…

A little bit of ink blending using Davina’s color snapshot, and I was ready to assemble the card. You’ll find more photos, and all of the details for this card on my blog.

Alright, are you feeling inspired? Pull out your Heffy Doodle stamps and create a card in similar colors! To enter, go to the Heffy Doodlers Facebook Group and post a picture of your project in the October 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 November 1st, 2020. 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 that your project features the same colors. Good luck my friend!

Questions, just ask. Need some more inspiration to get you started? Follow Heffy Doodle on Pinterest! You can find boards with themes and specific stamp sets. Got an idea, but need some new Heffy Doodle goodies? Head on over to the shop and treat yourself. Remember, you enter the challenge in the Facebook group, not here. Oh, and let’s keep it PG please 😉

I’ll be back on November 3rd to announce the winner and the next challenge. Until then, keep an eye out for more new series from the design team, and I’ll see you on Facebook…
