One layout two cards

Hey Crafty Friends,

It’s Amy here from Crafty Purple Frog I am so excited to be here again as a Guest Designer. This is my third post and today I am using one card layout and making two different cards. Of course using lots of yummy Heffy Doodle goodies 😀

These are the two cards I have made using the brilliant bright and fun Summer Holiday paper pack stamps (with their coordinating dies), sparkle mix for that touch of bling and stencils. Everything I used is from the awesome Heffy Doodle. I really love that you can get everything you need from the one place to make great fun cards.

So let’s break these cards down. I am going to use the yellow and green Thank you fur everything card in my example but as you can see you can use the stamps and stencils you have and make your own scene. Here is what you will need:

2 different pattern papers

In my picture the 2 pieces of yellow paper are cut to 5 1/4 x 2 1/2 inches

The green paper is cut to 5 7/8 x 2 inches

I backed these on a piece of Huckleberry card stock which is a great navy blue colour I cut it 6 x 6 inches.

As you can see I also drew a line around the edge of my card and I did this before I stuck it all together by hand with a ruler. I forgot to use a white pen to line around the huckleberry card stock at the back and did this later as I just love how it finishes everything off.

I know this is a boring picture but it is hard to get a picture of white card on a white background so I have stacked these two next piece together just to show you how they will be added to the card. Don’t stick them together yet though as you want to do some stencilling on the white piece first.

The sizes for these are 4 x 3 3/4 inch for the white card and that is another piece of huckleberry card this time at 4 1/4 x 3 3/4 inches.

Now you have all your parts it is time for the fun bit! Pick your stamps and stencils 🙂

For the first card I used these Heffy Doodle supplies:

Furry Friend sentiment stamps

Two by two safari animal stamps

Two by two safari animal coordinating dies

Mane Squeeze stamps

Mane Squeeze coordinating dies

Wildside stencil

Pride sparkle mix

Summer Holiday patterned paper pad

Huckleberry card stock

The next thing I did was coloured all the cute critters that were just calling out to me to be stamped up from the Two by Two Safari animals and that adorable lion from the Mane Squeeze stamp set. Before using my Heffy Doodle mini die cutting machine and their coordinating dies to cut around them.

Time to get stencilling! The wildside stencil gave a great pattern to make a background on the white 4 x 3 1/2 inch card. Again the edges for me had to be drawn around then I stuck this to my piece of Huckleberry card stock.

I stamped the sentiment from the Furry Friend sentiment stamps in the top left corner of my stencilled square and then it was time to assemble everything.

To add that touch of bling some sequins from the Pride sparkle mix were the perfect addition to be scattered across the card.

But as I said you can use these measurements and this idea and give it your own twist. Change up the stamps you use and the stencils. I used stencils to create a scene background for my llama card rather than just having a pattern. Plus I moved the patterned papers slightly so the pink paper was in the centre of the card.

The Heffy Doodle Supplies I used for this second card are:

Llamazing Llamas stamp set

Llamazing Llamas coordinating dies

Happy New Baby jumbo die sentiment

Green Fields Stencil

Cloudy Skies stencil

Summer Holiday patterned paper pad

Huckleberry card stock

I would love to see what you can make using this layout and I hope this has inspired you to break out your patterned papers and play.

Huge hugs

Amy (Crafty Purple Frog)
