“Hootiful” Cards with Heffy Doodle Owls (Blog Hop & Giveaway)

Hi there and welcome!

Today I am very excited to be part of the Heffy Doodle Blog Hop celebrating their new, 5th release!

I made two cards with the super cute owls from the “Hootiful” stamp set and also used their new double (inside and outside the cutting line) stitched rectangle dies to create sort of a window frame for my basic scenes.

The rectangle dies from Heffy Doodle that I am using are also in EU size! The largest cut stitched rectangle fully covers an A6 (EU standard size) card front. Therefore it measures approximately 10,5 x 14,8 cm. I have not seen a rectangle die like this before, very useful for us European crafters! ๐Ÿ˜€

MY “HOOTIFUL” BIRTHDAY CARD

For my first card I used the UnbeLEAFable stencil together with some acrylic paste and Distress Ink for the background as well as the Happy die for my sentiment. The owls are stamped, colored with Copics and die cut with the coordinating dies.

SECOND CARD: OWLS & LUCKY STARS

For my second card I used the new Starfall stencil over dark blue cardstock. Then I added the moon and some extra stars from the Hootiful stamp set and heat embossed them in gold. The moon and heart are also filled with a hint of glitter from a Wink Of Stella pen. I used a bit of masking paper to place two owls next to each other on the branch making it look as if one is hugging the other (at least that’s what I was going for lol). Then I fussy cut around the masked images with my Cutter Bee scissors.

CAS Cards with Winnie & Walter

Hello!

Today I have three CAS cards for you using Winnie & Walter stamps and dies. It’s a company a like a lot and they usually celebrate World Card Making Day with not one but several card challenges! Now, World Card Making Day has already been a week ago but my week has been busy (and not very good, to be honest) so I am glad they have their link-ups still open to participate in their challenges. ๐Ÿ™‚

HERE ARE MY CAS CARDS:

CAS Card Winnie Walter 1

The design is inspired by this card from Gayatri and I left a lot of white space to make it CAS.

CAS Card Winnie Walter 2

This one is the most clean of all three CAS cards. Two layers, one focal point and just a few rhinestones. I also stuck with Shay’s “Lucky 7 Limit” (2 colors, 2 layers, 1 stamp set + corner punch, 1 type of embellishment).

CAS Card Winnie Walter 3

And for no. 3 I made a CAS baby card. I dressed up my die cut with stamping and ink blending and used images/stars from three different stamp sets (Welcome To The Family, Sparkle and Wishing You). The green part below is also ink blended.

Have an amazing day and see you on Tuesday! โ™ฅ

MFT Stamps – Frightfully Sweet Halloween Card (Guest Post)

Hi there!

Today I have my first Halloween card this year to show you! For me, they are so different than cards I usually make, especially the colors! I think that’s a main reason why I really enjoy making them. And: I. just. can. not. resist. cute critters dressed up in Halloween costumes!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

So I was super happy to get my hands on the adorable “Frightfully Sweet” stamp set by MFT Stamps to make a card for The Foiled Fox again! You can read all the details about how I created my scene over on The Foiled Fox’s blog!

HERE’S MY “FRIGHTFULLY SWEET” HALLOWEEN CARD:

I watercolored the critters using Daniel Smith watercolors in two to three layers. I am really happy about how the images and background turned out and would like to enter my card for My Favorite Things Card Design Superstar Contest – Coloring Virtuoso category!

Have an amazing day! โ™ฅ
