Heffy Doodle & Sunny Studio Collaboration Blog Hop


Hello & welcome to a collaboration blog hop with the Heffy Doodle design team. Our two teams have swapped products and are sharing fun card idea for spring. Today I'm joining in with three cards of my own featuring primarily Heffy Doodle products with a little Sunny Studio sprinkled in.

Heffy Doodle & Sunny Studio Collaboration Blog Hop: Quill You Be Mine & Chimply The Best Cards by Mendi Yoshikawa

As a company owner I so rarely find the time to make cards using other company's products these days (even though I continue to be a fangirl and collect them just as much as I ever did) so this blog hop is a real treat for me. For my first card I am featuring Heffy Doodle's Quill You Be Mine? Stamps, together with the darling heart cutout from their Fancy Nancy Frames Dies

To save on cardstock, I decided to cut the heart frame directly from my cardbase and then colored my grass panel using twisted citron distress ink and stamping it with the grass images from our Chickie Baby Stamps. I then adhered my entire panel which I trimmed down ever so slightly to the inside of my card base. As a final touch I used Heffy Doodle's super fun Roundabout Sentiments together with their coordinating Curved Banner Die.

Up next is another card featuring the Heffy Doodle Quill You Be Mine? Stamps and another frame option from the Fancy Nancy Frames Dies. For my background  I stamped our Cascading Hearts background stamps twice, side by side, using my MISTI and a rainbow of ink colors.  I then blended on that same rainbow of ink colors for my background with Candy Apple, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon distress inks. 

When I was done, I die-cut my panel using the stitched frame from our Frilly Frames Retro Petals Dies. My final finishing touch was adding my sentiment using the Roundabout Sentiments Stamps and Curved Banner Die. I just love how well these were thought out with the option to have the greeting continue for both the top and bottom. Such a sweet hugging image too!

My last card of the day combine's Heffy Doodle's adorable Chimply The Best Monkeys with their Amazonian Leaves Dies for a fun moonlit swing through the jungle. I started my card by inking my moon in the background by using a circular motion and my favorite Jumbo Dauber together with Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed distress inks. I then worked on some Salty Ocean distress ink from the outside edges, being careful to only blend ever so slightly so that there wasn't an obvious green line where the two colors overlapped. I then followed with some Blueprint Sketch distress ink on the outer edges. Lastly I cut my stitched background panel using our Frilly Frames Quatrefoil Dies.

For my Amazonian Leaves I first inked up scraps of paper with Twisted Citron distress ink before cutting them out with the dies. I then inked up half of my leaves on the right side and the other half on the left side using Mowed Lawn distress ink. This gives the appearance that both the leaves on top and bottom have the same light source, lends a bit of dimension to them and also helps to overlap them without them looking flat and losing the detail where they cross over each other.

When I was done adding my leaves, I realized I should have had my leaves bleeding off the edge of my card more, but it turned out to be a happy realization because I was able to trim both the top and bottom off, which gave me a little room to add a fun strip of coordinating paper from our Summer Splash Paper pack, together with a little zig-zag edge from our Ric Rac Border dies. I completed my card with a heat embossed sentiment from the Chimply The Best stamp set using VersaMark Ink and White Detail Embossing Powder.
