Hello Heffy Doodlers, It’s Lesley here, and what a treat we have today! I am so excited to be part of the #spreadjoynotgerms blog hop. This hop is MEGA to the MAX, and we are LOVING it!
Before I show you my project for today, be sure to scroll down and see the PRIZES and DISCOUNTS that are part of this hop. I should also mention that we have a special discount code to get 15% discount over at the Heffy Doodle store, so don’t miss that further down the post!
The goal of this hop is to spread a little joy and happiness, and what is better than bright happy colours, mixed with an interactive card!
(All items in bold are linked to the Heffy Doodle store in the ‘products used’ section below, and don’t forget to check out the discount code).
For this card I started with some Heffy Doodle cardstock – Simply Tealicious, Banana Split and Plum Pudding. I used my Stitched Imperial Rectangle dies to cut a teal panel, then grabbed my Zapp Attack stencil for some ink blending.
I rarely add ink to coloured card, so this was a fun adventure! I used Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet Distress Oxides – the oxides seem to pop better on coloured card in my opinion. Next I used the Stitched Stars dies to cut a star aperture in the middle. I took a piece of white card, slightly larger than the teal rectangle and stuck the star flat onto the white card, but used foam to raise up the teal panel – with some sequins inside of course!
Have you guys seen the Skinny Imperial Rectangle Frames? What I LOOOOOVVVEE about these, is using the inside piece for layering. I used the largest frame die to cut a purple frame (set it aside for later) then layered my teal and white card panels right on top of the purple. Its the perfect size!
Next up was some stamping – I used the Superdudes stamps for my hero, the shooting stars and flat bottomed clouds, and coloured these in using Copic markers. I added some Wink of Stella Glitter Brush on top of him to make him really sparkle!
For the sentiment I wanted to make that pop against the coloured card, and what better choice than white. I used the Sending Heffy Cuts die and cut this five (yes FIVE) times, and adhered them all together to create a faux-chipboard look. For the word ‘smiles’ I wanted to bring in the yellow colour a bit more, so I reached for some double sided adhesive sheets and some yellow craft foam. I added the sticky sheet to both top and bottom of the foam, then adhered white card on top. With the card and foam stuck together, I used the Stitched Alphabetter dies to cut the individual letters then peeled away the backer to stick them onto the card. Using adhesive sheets is a fantastic way to create instant stickers!
To finish the card, I simply needed to adhere it to a card blank – and although originally I was going to use some teal card, the way it really POPPED against the Banana Split yellow card really made me smile – so the decision was made!
