Heffy Doodle and Gerda Steiner Collab _ Graphic

 The designers from Heffy Doodle (that's me) and from Gerda Steiner Designs are teaming up. We are all creating using products from both companies on one card!  I love a mash up and have come up with a cute slimline card, if I don't say so myself. I will be using Heffy Doddle dies and Gerda Steiner images for my Mice Tea Party Slimline Card.

Now let's take a close up look at my slimline Mice Tea Party card. 

Mice tea party 1

The images I used from Gerda Steiner are the Positivi-Tea Clear Stamp set and a few digital images to go with. The digital stamp are; Mouse with Drink (seen on the left side of my card), Sweet Tooth Mouse (seen on the right side of my card), and Mouse in Cup (used on the inside of the card). I love that the little mouse I fell in love with from the Positive-Tea stamp set has friends that I can download and use with him. I had so much fun coloring out this scene with these darling tea drinking mice!  The fun border around this card was made using the Sweet Scalloped Slimline Die set from Heffy Doodle, I nested two scalloped frames together to make this fun frame.

Another product that I used from Heffy Doodle is the Broad Strokes Stencil for my background. I used Coral Berry ink from Altenew and stenciled on to pink paper. I think it is such a fun backdrop for my thirsty mice. I think these mice are darling, to color them up I used Warm Gray Copic Markers; W4, W2, W0. With a touch of R20 for their cheeks and ears. 

Mice tea party 3

To give the effect of sugar in the bowl I used some Diamond Stickles. It turned out so cute and ties into the glitter sentiment, which sounds like you are giving someone a BIG kiss. This die cut sentiment is also from the Sweet Scalloped Slimline Die set that made the border/frame on this card. It's one of several new slimline die sets from Heffy Doodle. The banner to stamp my sentiment on is a die in the Mini Essentials Heffy Doodle die set, it fit my sentiment perfectly!

I used a polkadot patterned paper from my stash to make an envelope using the new Slimline Envelope die from Heffy Doodle. 

I also added another digital stamp on the inside to finish off this card, Mouse in Cup. Isn't he so cute! I hope you like today's card, it was so much fun to make.
