Hello Bluebird • Wildflower Bouquet • Celebrate

24.06.2018

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!

Hello Bluebird • Just Sayin' Card Duo

21.06.2018

Hi peeps,

today I'm showcasing the Just Sayin' stamp set from the Hello Bluebird May Release. It comes with three adorable critters which are holding blank boards in their little paws. In the set you will also find a ton of small mix and match sentiments as well as a couple of accessories.

On my first card, I used the cute bear and colored him with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers. I tried them for the very first time and I like this brown color combo.

I arranged my sentiment and stamped it in black. The accessories were colored with Copics and I used the Just Sayin' companion dies to cut my images out. For the background, I stamped a panel with the Country Gingham Cling Rubber Stamp and Lawn Fawn «Minty Fresh» ink. I adhered it at an angle to my card base made from Simon Says Stamp «Fog» cardstock (it's my favorite light grey one). The gorgeous outdoor-themed patterned paper is from the Bo Bunny «Little Wonders» 6"x6" paper pad. I cut a window using the SSS «Stitched Circle» die. I also added stitched details to the edge with the largest SSS «Stitched Square» die. I popped up the circle window piece and the bear with foam tape.

For my second card, I made use of the patterned paper circle that was left from the first card and matted it with a white cardstock circle which is slightly bigger.

I again adhered a mint gingham panel to a «Fog» card base. The bunny and heart were colored with Copics and I chose the «thank you» sentiment to stamp on the little board. I adhered the images with foam tape and added a wood veneer arrow to finish off this card.

Hope you like this card duo which would be perfect for a crafty friend, right?!

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

DT bastel-traum.ch Challenge #66

15.06.2018

Good morning everyone,

today starts a new challenge over at the bastel-traum.ch blog and the theme is «Hobby/Leisure».
http://bastel-traum.blogspot.ch/ 
This challenge will run until July 15th, 8:55 am CET (Central European Time).

The latest Lawn Fawn release was phenomenal and I loved creating with one of my favorite stamp sets which is called «You Are Sublime». The little diver is just the cutest and of course the submarine had to be yellow.

I created an Alcohol Ink background using aqua, blue and a bit of purple and green tones. Next, I stamped, Copic colored and die cut the images for my underwater scene (BTW, the shell is from the «Life Is Good» set). I white heat embossed the sentiment from the «Elphie Selfie» set on a thin strip of black cardstock.


For some shine, I added Glossy Accents to the bubbles, swimming goggles and submarine portholes. To finish off my card, I adhered two sparkly faceted crystals by Little Things from Lucy's Cards and a Brutus Monroe two-tone pearl.

I'm entering the current Lawn Fawnatics Cards for Guys challenge:

Hello Bluebird • Piggy Picnic

31.05.2018

Good morning everyone,

I finally got my hands on the new products from the Hello Bluebird May Release. And what can I say, I just LOVE them all!

I made this card using these adorable pigs from the Farmyard Little Bits stamp set. They are sitting on a polka dot blanket (from the Hippos on Holiday set) enyoing a little cupcake picnic. I did some masking to create my scene. Since I haven't done the No Line Coloring technique for quite a while, I used it for a change. I combined Copics and Prismacolor pencils for details. I tried the new-to-me «Fadeout No Line Coloring» ink by Ink On 3 and I really like it.

In the background, I did some light ink blending using the Tim Holtz Distress Blending Brushes which are great for this. Next, I die cut the My Favorite Things «Snow Globe» shape from «Subtle Plaids» patterned paper. I directly adhered my colored scene to the card base and popped up the plaid window panel with foam tape. The sentiment from the Farmyard Little Bits stamp set was heat embossed in white on a small banner. Finally, I added two die cut clouds (Puddle Play Die) and a small pink heart.

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

Hello Bluebird • Hello Little One

30.05.2018

Hi crafty friends,

today I'm back with a sweet Baby card that I made by mixing and matching several Hello Bluebird stamps.

I love coloring these cute critter images! The elephant is from the Jungle Littles set, the duck comes from the newly released Puddle Play set and the little snail you find in the Springtime set. I also added the balloon from the Silly Birds set. I cut all images out with their companion dies.

For the light yellow pattern, I stamped the pretty Country Gingham Background and cut it with a stitched rectangle die by My Favorite Things. I also die cut a stitched frame from yellow cardstock to set my critters in scene. I adhered the images with foam tape for a little bit of dimension.

Next, I die cut the word «hello» (which you can find in the Gallery Frame Die #1 set) from light grey cardstock. I layered three die cuts on top of each other. I heat embossed the «little one» sentiment from the Cheery Greetings set with Ranger «Liquid Platinum» embossing powder. To embellish my card, I adhered three silver star sequins by Little Things from Lucy's Cards.

Thank you so much for stopping by! See you tomorrow!
