Purrfect Day Cards | Heffy Doodle Friends Blog Hop


Purrfect Day Cat Cards | Heffy Doodle Friends Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to the Heffy Friends Blog Hop! Today we are celebrating the new Heffy Doodle release with some great inspiration and a giveaway, too!


CARD DETAILS

Both my cards today feature the cutest kitties from the Purrfect Day Stamp Set. Seriously, if I was a cat lady this scene would probably be happening in real life all day long, right!? I don't have any cats but I have many friends who do so this will make a great card for them!

To begin, I stamped out the play structure onto a piece of cardstock that will end up being the card front and the kitties on another piece of paper. I then colored all the images in using alcohol markers. I then cut the kittens out using the coordinating Purrfect Day Dies.

Before popping and gluing down the kittens onto the play area, I used the Steady Heart Stencil to blend out some rainbow-colored hearts. I didn't mask off the structure I just avoided blending near the stamped areas.

I then stamped out the sentiment onto the background and the MEOW balloon. I then added all the kitties to the scene, trimmed the panel and glued it to an A2 sized card base.

To the inside of this cute card, I added a little mouse and the PURRTHDAY greeting.

For this next card, I began by creating the sun in the background. To create it, I began by using the Square Masquerade Stencil and blended yellow ink around the edges, leaving a lighter area around the center. I then kept rotating the square stencil and repeating this process to create all the sun rays around the sun. I then used the Circle Masquerade Stencil to apply a layer of orange ink to intensify the area and define the sun.

Next, I masked off the area for the grass and blended out the green ink. I then spritzed it with a little water to distress the area. I also added a light blend of bleu to the sky.

Now that the background was complete, once again I used one of the cute kittens from the Purrfect Day Stamps and added him to look like he was laying in the grass soaking up the warm sun rays.

I then die cut the Sunshine word die a few times, stacked and glued them together and added it along the bottom of the stenciled sun. I then added a jewel to where the dot of the "i" would be and finished this card off by stamping out the HELLO.

Make A Wish Gnomie | St. Patrick's Day Card | Honey Bee Stamps


Make A Wish Gnomie | St. Patrick's Day Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Hello, my friends!πŸ‘‹

I have a fun St. Patrick's Day inspired card to share with you all today. I have turned the cute little gnome from the GNOME PLACE LIKE HOME set into a leprechaun.

CARD DETAILS

I began this card by stamping out the gnome and the clovers from MAE THE MOUSE set. I then colored them in using Copic Markers and die cut them out with their coordinating dies.

Next, I needed to create a pot for the pot of gold. To do that I used the balloon die from the UP, UP AND AWAY DIES and cut the neck of the balloon off and flipped it onto its top. To make the lip of the pot I cut a few strips of cardstock and stacked and glued them together. The gold coins that I then filled the pot with come from the PENNY SHAKERS HONEY CUTS set.

To create the rainbow I die cut all the pieces using white cardstock, I then used the same colors to color the arcs of the rainbow that I had used on the gnome.

Once I had all my pieces cut out and colored, I assembled the card. I added a light blend Atelier Peacock Blue Ink to the sky and then started gluing down my pieces. I began by adding one of the strips of grass that I had die cut using the GRASS BORDER DIE and then built the scene from that point. I also stamped a few more clovers in the background to fill in some areas.

Seriously how cute is this Gnome turned leprechaun!? To this cutie, I added a drop of glossy accents to his nose and added a fun iridescent bubble to top off his hat.

To finish off the Make A Wish sentiment, I die cut the Wish Word out a few times, stacked and glued it together to give it some thickness and glued it onto a vellum shadow layer.

The cute little hearts I added to the rainbow come from the FREE BEE MINE DIE set, that I added some glitter too and glossy accents.

Here is a peek at the inside of the card. I didn't catch my mistake until I wrote this post. I had meant to add an "i" to Gnome to make it Gnomie and to play off the gnome on the front of the card, so I have since done that, but sadly not for this photo. Oh, well guess you'll just have to imagine that I squeezed in an "i" in there. To stamp the Gnome in a rainbow-like blend I just used 3 different colors of ink beginning with the yellow in the center and the red on top and the blue on the bottom, the ink that overlapped made a blend creating a rainbow-like gradient.

I hope you were inspired by this fun Make A Wish Gnomie, St. Patrick's Day Card. I think it would make a great birthday card for a friend or one of your gnomie's πŸ˜‰

Thank you for stopping by 😊
Until next time... Happy Crafting πŸ‘‹
