Reach for the Stars | Interactive Card | Heffy Doodle Stamps


Reach for the Stars | Interactive Card | Heffy Doodle Stamps by ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com
Hello Friends!

Today I am SUPER excited to be Guest Designing on the Heffy Doodle Blog. I think you will love the card I'm sharing today because it is literally out of this world! I absolutely love how it turned and hope you do too!

CARD DETAILS

To begin I stamped out the cute images from Spaced Out Stamp (SSS | SB | HD) set and colored them in using Copic markers. I then die cut them out using the coordinating Spaced Out Dies (SSS | SB | HD). To add a layer of shine I used glossy accents on the astronaut's helmet, the stars, and the rocket's window and set them aside to dry while I worked on the rest of the card.

Here is a picture of the Copic Markers I used in case you are interested.


The next thing I did was create a galaxy background using alcohol inks on Yupo paper. To give it a more galaxy like feel I splattered the entire background with white pigment ink. To add some more interest and shine I used a quickie glue pen and traced some of the alcohol edges and then dropped some silver gilding flakes over the areas. I then lightly rubbed off anything that didn't stick to the glue with a soft paintbrush.

The coolest part of this card is that it is interactive. Watch the clip below to see it in action.

To make this card interactive I used a circle die (which actually was one of the dies from the coordinating Spaced Out Dies (SSS | SB | HD)) just make sure the circle you use is smalled that the object you are going to glue on top of it. In this case, I needed it to be smaller than the planet that the little astronaut's foot was glued too. Figure out where you want the planet to be and then use the circle die to cut out a circle in that spot.

Then using some scraps, cut out another circle using a larger circle die (in this case I used the coordinating die for the planet) and in the center of the die-cut circle glue to that a flat button or a spin disc if you have one (The button should be just slightly smaller than the opening on the panel to be able to move freely and not wiggle around too much). Once it's dry pop it through the opening that was previously made on the panel and glue another die cut circle to the top of it.

Add foam tape all along the back and edge of the alcohol background panel ensuring that the spinner mechanism doesn't touch the tape anywhere. Attach the panel to the card base.

Now that the spinner mechanism is done, you can glue the planet onto it. Before I did though, I attached a threat to the back of the astronaut using glue and then covered it with tape to ensure it wasn't going to catch on anything.

Attach the other end of the threat to the rocket and pop the rocket in place with foam tape and you're done! TIP: Leave extra length on the thread until you figure out how much you need to make the partial spin work (the length you leave will determine the range of the movement).

Watch the Astronaut in action!

On the inside, I combined a few stamps to personalize this birthday card and added some stars for fun!

Dancing Deer Die for Simon Says Stamp Fun and Festive Release | Partial Spinner Card


Hello Friends and thanks for joining me today! 

 I can finally share the card I made for Simon Says Stamp Fun and Festive Release 😄


My card features the new Dancing Deer Die. The idea I had for this card was to make it look like the Deer, lets call him Rudolf because he has a red nose 😉 was flying over the moon across a night sky. If you know me, you'll know I love interactive cards... so for this card I made it so that the moon spun from one side to another without letting the deer spin all the way around.

I have been wanting to make a tall and skinny card for the longest time so I thought this card would work perfectly. 
  • To begin, I painted my night sky using Mijello Mission Gold Watercolors using a mix of Persian Blue and Ivory Black. 
  • To the background I added white splatters using a copic white pigment. Set it aside to dry.
  • Next I did all my die cutting. A white layer of the deer, a brown one and then a lighter brown for the antlers. I then pieced the deer together and added a red crystal to the nose.
  • I then die cut the pieces for the moon, 2 large circles for the moon, and 2 smaller circles to make the spinner element. 
  • I glued the 2 large circles together, then blended some Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide Ink to the outer edge of the circle. Sprayed some water drops and picked it up with a paper towel.
  • Next, I worked on the spinner mechanism by gluing a flat button onto one of the smaller circles I had cut out. Set it aside to dry.
  • I then die cut a small circle on the upper half of the night sky background, slightly larger than the button. 
  • Next I placed the button through opening of the die cut circle and glued the other small die cut circle to the top. 
  • Once the spinner was dry and in place I added foam tape behind the background panel to pop it up and allow the spinner to move freely. Avoiding foam around the spinner area. Here is a link of a video to a previous spinner I created if you want a better idea of a similar process.
  • Before attaching the moon to the spinner, added a couple of pieces of foam tape around the mechanism to act as movement stoppers. One at the the 4 o'clock mark and another at the 9 o'clock mark. Do not remove the protective tape.
  • I then glued the deer onto the moon. Right about the middle part of the deer's body I added another piece of foam tape so that that piece would catch on the pieces that were already glued down on the panel. I then carefully placed and glued the moon onto the center of the spinning mechanism.


  • Next I die cut 3 layers of the Sending Die using white cardstock, stacked and glued them together and then added a silver glitter layer of cardstock to the top. 
  • Repeated the same thing with the Christmas Blessing Die.

  • Finished off the card by adding some white gel pen details and crystals.

The completed card measures 4 x 8.5 inches.
