Today’s cards feature the Ocean’s of Love set and I’m building a unique scene with the help of a few other Heffy Doodle products. There are two versions of this card with varying degrees of layers. The first step was to stamp out the scene….

Birthday Cards, Cardmaking 6 April, 2020 Tags: , , , , No Comments

Hello, I’m back on the Heffy Doodle blog today with April’s first installment of my CAS (Clean and Simple) series. I challenged myself to use only dies for the main focal point, with just one stamp for a sentiment. Having seen Kelly’s idea of using the Stitched Dino Prints Dies as tulips, I thought I would put my own twist…

Hello, crafters! I’m back on the Heffy Doodle blog today with a fairytale scene card. My cousin is getting married later this year and my Aunt requested a card that was ‘Disney’ and ‘Fairytale’ themed. I immediately thought of Cinderella and the Happily Ever Crafter stamp set! Rather than using a lot of layers to create the background, I thought…

I’m stepping out of my CAS style slightly today over on the Heffy Doodle blog to bring you this cheeky thank you card featuring the Chimply the Best stamp set.

Happy New Year to you all! I hope you managed to have a good break. The run up to Christmas was super busy for me and crafting had to take a little bit of a back seat for a while. I didn’t get a chance to share this non-traditional Christmas card I gave to my Postie (partly in apology for…

It’s an MFT week for me and at first I thought I was going to have to bin these backgrounds before they ever made it to a card base.

Simple Backgrounds for CAS Cards

Cardmaking, General Cards, Thank You Cards 30 October, 2019 Tags: , , , No Comments

More often recently I am finding I am creating cards that move towards the CAS – clean and simple – style. Lots of white space, one layer and perhaps one central image. Sometimes, just adding a simple shaped background can frame your central image and create a focal point. Today, I used the Mama Elephant Fuzzy Hugs stamp set, two sentiment sets…
