Hello Bluebird • July Release • Bee Happy


Hello everybody,

it's me again :-) The new Hello Bluebird July Release has the most adorable critter stamps and the Bee Happy set another favorite of mine. I created a hexagon shaped card (using MFT «Hexagon STAX» Die-namics) for the cute little bee.

First, I did some gradient blending with yellow inks. Next, I colored the bee and flowers with Copics and cut them out with the Bee Happy companion dies. I stamped the stitched trail in black and popped up the bee with foam tape. I die cut the letter «B» (lightly colored at the bottom with cool grey Copics) from the brand-new Charlie's Alpha Die set and combined it with the stamped word «happy». Finally, I adhered some glittery Doodlebug Design Golden Sprinkles.

Hello Bluebird • July Release • Otter Friends

Hi peeps,

have you shopped the newest Hello Bluebird July Release yet? Today, I would like to introduce you to another sweet set called Otter Friends. I created a little pond scene and let the adorable otters play with fish.

For the background, I did some watercoloring with Distress Oxide Inks. Next, I used the Avery Elle «Oval Burst» die to cut a window from white cardstock. I colored the images with Copics and Prismacolor pencils and used the Otter Friends companion dies to cut them out. This set also includes wave dies so you could tuck something in like I did with the otter.

I white heat embossed the sentiment on a strip of black cardstock and foam mounted it onto the card. Then I arranged the seed around the oval window and finished off my card with Pretty Pink Posh «Sea Glass» crystals.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Will see you later with a second card.

Hello Bluebird • July Release • Moose and Friends


Hello again,

I have some good news for you – the new Hello Bluebird July Release will be available in just a few hours! You will have to check out all the cuteness!

I made a card highlighting the Moose and Friends set with the most adorable woodland critters.

First, I created an ink blended background using Distress Oxide Inks. I also cut a mask using one of the Grassy Knoll dies. To give the grass part some texture, I added water droplets and ink splatters.

Next, I colored all the images with Copics and adhered some of them with foam tape for more dimension. The large scripty word «celebrate» is from the Cheery Greetings stamp set. I white heat embossed it on vellum and carefully fussy cut it out. I finished off my card with Platinum sequin stars by Little Things from Lucy's Cards.

DT bastel-traum.ch Challenge #67

Good morning peeps,

summer is in full swing and we have an easy new challenge theme over at the bastel-traum.ch blog«Anything Goes».
This challenge will run until August 15th, 8:55 am CET (Central European Time).

For my card, I was totally inspired by the gorgeous colors of the Cocoa Vanilla Studio «Bohemian Dream» enamel shapes pack. I think the apricot, aqua and purple go so well together.

I love this cute birdie from the My Favorite Things «Toucan Do It» set and tried some two-tone blending with my Copics. The headband and cuffs are so adorable. I fussy cut the image with scissors leaving a small white border.

For the background, I did some faded ink blending using the MFT «Geometric Grid» stencil and aqua ink colors. I die cut the panel with the second largest «A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 1» Die-namics and adhered it to a «Grapesicle» card base.

I white heat embossed the sentiment onto «Steel Grey» cardstock and cut it with one of the «Stitched Sentiment Strips» Die-namics. I popped up the banner and bird with foam squares and adhered the matching enamel dots.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Stay tuned for my second blog post!

Hello Bluebird • Farmyard Little Bits • Party


Hi everyone,

today I want to show you a card featuring the Farmyard Little Bits set from the Hello Bluebird May release. Aren't these cows and pigs just the cutest?!

First, I colored the images with Copics and cut them out with the Farmyard Little Bits companion dies. I stamped the background with the Stampin' Up! «Brushstrokes» in Simon Says Stamp «Fog» ink. I simply love this light grey color! Then I used the Avery Elle «Circle Frames» die to cut out some round windows for my little farm critters.

Next, I adhered a piece of patterned paper (Lawn Fawn «Let's Polka» 6x6 paper pad) onto my «Fog» card base that will show through the circle windows. I white heat embossed a couple of the sentiments included in the set on thin black cardstock strips.

I assembled my card and used a plenty amount of foam tape to pop everything up for dimension. Finally, I adhered some Doodlebug «Tiny Heart» Shape Sprinkles and added random small Nuvo «Limoncello» Jewel Drops.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Wishing you a sunny weekend!

Hello Bluebird • Wildflower Bouquet • Celebrate


Hello everyone,

it's no secret that I absolutely adore the cute Hello Bluebird critters. But did you know that they have pretty flowers, too?!

I made this floral card using the gorgeous Wildflower Bouquet set and combined it with a Cheery Greetings sentiment and the Country Gingham Background.

First, I stamped the gingham background with Simon Says Stamp «Fog» light grey ink. Next, I used the stitched frame from the Gallery Frame Die #1 set and cut it from matching SSS «Fog» cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark and heat embossed it with Ranger «Liquid Platinum» embossing powder.

For my color combo, I was totally inspired by the Altenew Mini Ink Cubes. They are so beautiful! After stamping a bunch of flowers and leaves, I used the Wildflower Bouquet Dies to cut them out. To be honest, it took me quite a while to arrange these die cuts ;-) I finished off this card by adhering some enamel dots and sparkling clear sequins.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great Sunday!
