Time For Tea Designs & Heffy Doodle Collab Blog Hop

Date: July 21st  3:00pm BST (10 am EDT)

Hi everyone and welcome to the Heffy Doodle and Time for Tea Designs Collaboration Blog Hop! Our design teams have come together to share some amazing inspiration featuring Heffy Doodle and Time for Tea Designs products, and there is a prize up for grabs, too!

For my Thank you collab card I started off making the background. I used the "Wave to me" stencil from Heffy Doodles with distress oxide inks on white card. To add a bit of texture I lightly splashed some water droplets onto the ink. I then added some sand to the bottom of the background again using the inks and white card.

I then die cut the Thank you sentiment die and the Scalloped frame die from Time For Tea Designs in white card. I die cut the thank you die 3 times to make it nice and sturdy and to help it stand out.

Using the Heffy Doodles Otter Side stamp set and the Time For Tea Mermazing stamp and die set I stamped and die cut the images. These two sets really compliment each other and gave my cards a different look. I then coloured the images and used a white pen for some little highlights.

I adhered the frame and images with 3D foam pads.
There you go a cute sea themed thank you card using two of my favourite crafting companies which complete each other perfectly.

Heffy Doodle and Time for Tea Designs will each be giving away £25 to spend in their respective stores.

Winners will be chosen randomly and announced on July 28th on the Heffy Doodle and Time for Tea Designs blogs.

To be in with a chance of winning all you will need to do is comment on each of the blogs including the Heffy Doodle and Time For Tea blogs.

You should have come from Tallie Clewley's blog and the next stop is Amy Gould's blog. 😊

Mixed media Waterfall card

I haven't used my blog for absolutely ages mainly because no one visited anymore. Is blogging still a thing?

Anyway I wanted to show this waterfall card that I would like to enter in to the Craft Stamper "Take it , make it " December challenge. 

I've used some gorgeous new Tracey Hey Designs stamps. The sets are called "Let's get dizzy" and "Having it all".

I used the Crafter's Companion waterfall die to make the base.

The background of each image has been made by smooshing Distress Oxide sprays and then stamping the curves over the top. I've added highlights using a white pen. The circles have also been made in the same way and fussy cut. 
I stamped out the main image and coloured them with Spectrum Noir Illustrator pens and then fussy cut them. 

For the bigger backgrounds I have used two Clarity stamp paper pads.

The sentiments have been stamped with versamark and then white embossed onto black card.

Here's the front of the  waterfall card.

Here's page no 2

And there you go a lovely mixed media waterfall card.
