Can you believe it’s been a whole year since Heffy Doodle officially began? They’ve had some amazing releases and I’m honoured to be a Special Contributor for the Design Team. For a very Heffy birthday, we’ve got an awesome lineup for a celebratory blog hop plus an amazing £50 voucher to the Heffy Doodle store up for grabs! Plus, a coupon code for extra discount! Keep reading below for details.

As it’s a celebration, I have two cards to share with you today! They feature Wingman, Yappy Happy Mail and Sending Heffy Cut.

The Wingman set is my favourite from this release and just begged to be coloured with some bright colours! I Googled pictures of parrots and used several Copic markers to achieve these bright blends. Something I learnt – the lighter markers with more blending solution in make blending different colour families easier! I made sure to colour in some coordinating feathers in the same colour.

After cutting out with the coordinating dies I finished off with a a white heat embossed sentiment, popping all the pieces up with some foam tape over a lightly blended background. Every birthday should be a ‘shake your tail feathers’ kinda day!

My second card features the Yappy Happy Mail set and has lots of dimension and layers. I started by blending on some Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink onto one card panel and some Peeled Paint onto another. I cut the grassy panel out with a Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Border die and adhered both to an A6 cardbase, leaving a small border on the top and bottom.

On some blending cardstock I stamped out all the images and got to work with my Copic markers. I stuck to cool greys, lighter browns and red accents to make the images pop from the background. I love how the postbox coordinating die cuts out the little slit so you can post the letter! I arranged them together as if there was a big doggy pile of happy mail using a mixture of foam tape and tape runner.

For the sentiment, I used a die cut from the Sending Heffy Cut and white heat embossed sentiments from the set onto some red card I coloured with my red markers. I used some Swirly Clouds to balance out the top section of the card. Just think of all the love going into this happy mail!

I hope these projects have inspired you, though don’t forget to follow on the hop for some fantastic inspiration featuring the new release!
