[Video] Portrait Style Shadowbox Card | Heffy Doodle


Hi crafty friends, I am super excited to announce that I joined the Heffy Doodle Video team! Each month I will create a new cardmaking video tutorial because I have a new series, the Color it! with Mona! 


For the color inspiration for this card I have used Davina’s Halloween Color Snapshot Board. Today I am going to show you how I colored and created this portrait style tunnel shadowbox card which folds perfectly to fit an A2 envelope. Be sure to check it out, find the video here. As always the you can find the used supplies below the post. 


I started the cardmaking with stamping the images from the Quill You Be Mine, Yappy Happy Mail and the Pasta La Vista Stamp Sets. I have used the Bright White Alcohol Marker Friendly cardstock from Heffy Doodle. For the stamping I have used the dark brown alcohol marker friendly inkpad called Leather. 


When the stamping was done, after a quick heat set, I started the coloring with Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers. For the coloring and the card making process be sure to check out the video tutorial here. Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers Used: LV3, PL3, PV3,GY2, BO1, BO3, CT1, CT4, GY3, AB3, AB1, MB3, MB1, EB1, EB2, EB4, EB7, BG4, BG2, Blender.

Till death do us craft | Halloween Card

Hello BOOtiful crafty friends! Today I am joining the Till Death Do Us craft collab, where we are going to create month long Halloween cards. Be sure to search for the #tilldeathdouscraft hashtag on social sites to find more halloween inspiration. Hopefully you will like my extra bling Halloween post. :) I decided to show you a supersweet girly glittery spooky card.


I hope you will enjoy this post as I enjoyed creating it. As always you can find the used supplies below the post.


I started the cardmaking with the background. I cut a piece of (5.25" x 4") pink cardstock. Then I applied Silver Glitz Glitter Gel by Gina K. Designs through the Wildside Stencil by Heffy Doodle. When it was done I let it dry one hour. While the background was drying I die cut the B O O letters from Bold Basic Alphabet Die Set and the Beautiful Word Die from Double Sided Adhesive Foam Sheets and Rose Gold Glitter Cardstock.


Next I stamped these BOOtiful ghosts from the Halloween Fun Stamp by Hello bluebird and colored them with my Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers. I wanted to color them as "transparent" so when I made the shading, I colored on them the letters with lighter markers. This gives them a transparent look. I have used the following colors: CR3, FS3, TN1, BG6, BG4, BG2, Blender. And I really like how it turned out. 


Next I run a piece of vellum through my die cut machine with the Small Dotted Rectangle Stackables by Lawn Fawn (it's on sale now). I have used the largest die and put my card together. 


In the end I just added rose gold sequins in different sizes and to the bottom I put the "hello Beautiful" sentiment from Rose Gold Sticker Book by Scrapbook.com which is really beautiful and on sale now. Thank you so much for stopping by, if you have any questions let me know in your comment. I have a BOOtiful day! :)

Fall Sunset Watercoloring with Viviva Colorsheets and Lawn Fawn

Hi crafty friends, today I am back with a cute watercolor project what I created with the most portable watercolor sheets ever! Rohitha, the owner of Viviva colorsheets, was super kind and sent me their handmade Single Set Watercolorsheets to try out! 


I was super excited when I received it! I love its design and look, even the envelope was amazing and handcrafted! 


As you can see on the photos, this watercolor set is super thin and portable. My type Includes 16 ultra-vibrant colors. This watercolor palette is the perfect choice to bring with you to the crop events, or when you are on trip, and you want to take with you some coloring! Trust me it’s ultra super thin! 😊 



Between the shades you can find special water resistant sheets, so your colors will be divided even when they are wet! Under the watercolor paint, you can find a frame which is color coded. If you want you can make your swatch in that frame and you are ready to go! You can use them everywhere you like! 😊 


I decided to show you how vibrant it is, so I pulled my watercolor sketchbook and I painted a little fall with Lawn Fawn stamps. But before I started to color I swatched all the colors. Girl!!! You need only a bit of that paint, it’s oh so pigmented! 


For the stamping I have used the Jump for Joy and the A bug Deal stamp sets by Lawn Fawn. For the stamping I have used the Crunchy Leaf inkpad. After a quick heat set, I wet the watercolor paper and started to build up the scene. 


I wanted to create a nice fall sunset, and with these colors it was really easy. When the background was done, I stamped the leaves from the Jump for Joy stamp set to another watercolor paper and colored the leaves with the randomly picked colors. 


My top favorite colors are the “Viridian”, the “Magenta”, the “Light Green” and the “Chrome Yellow”. All the shades are fantastic, but these are the holy grail for me! 😊 


I am absolutely in love with this palette and this extra thin friend is going to my small travel bag! The Viviva colorseets has amazing and rich shades and it fits to your penholder as well. If you have never tried it consider to get one for yourself and it’s a perfect Christmas present for a crafty friend as well. 😊 




Thank you so much for reading my post, I hope you have enjoyed it, if you have any questions feel free to ask in a comment or check the Handmade Viviva Colorsheets site!

Heffy Friends Blog Hop

Hello lovelies and welcome to the Heffy Doodle Friends Blog Hop. Today I am showing you a cute pony card inspiration with the newest release! I hope you will enjoy it. 


As always, you can find the supply list below the post. Now let see the cardmaking and also don't forget to comment on my blog, because there is a giveaway too! Yaaay! 


I started the cardmaking with ink blending. I have used lighter Distress Oxide Inkpads first in rainbow order in the following shades: Tumbled Glass, Cracked Pistachio, Twisted Citron, Squeezed Lemonade, Spun Sugar and Shaded Lilac. When it was done, I put on my ink blending through the Rays The Roof stencil and created darker lines through the stencil. I have used the Peacock Fathers, Moved Lawn, Fossilized Amber, Picked Raspberry, and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide inkpads. 


When the ink blending was done, I run the blended cardstock with the Imperial Stitched Rectangles Dies (the second largest) through my Die-cut machine. After that I splattered on it with white and gold Gansai Tambi Watercolors and let it dry. 


The next step was the stamping and coloring. I have used the Fluffy Puffy Unicorns Stamps and Dies. Aren’t they adorable? I have a few more inspirations with these cutenesses. I will show them in the end of my post. I stamped them with my MISTI and this time I colored them as Ponies from the My Little Pony movies. 


For the coloring I have used my Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers. The used colors for Ponies are: CT1, CT3, CT4, LY1, GY1, GY2, GY3, BO1, BO2, DR2, MG3, MG1, PP4, PP2, PP1, PV3, HB1, LV1, LV3, PL3, TB5, TV4, TB2, TB1, IB1, IG2, BGR4, DG3, LG4, LG3, Blender. 


When the coloring was done, I adhered the Ponies to the background with 3D foam adhesive. Next I run the Starry Rainbow Die, the Stitched Alphabetter Dies and the “To my” Word Heffy Cuts through my Die-cut machine with white cardstock. I created the sentiment then embellished with the stars from the Starry Rainbow die, then styled and put my card together. 


I hope you have enjoyed my inspirations for today, see you next time and good luck in the giveaway! Mona
