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!

Hello Bluebird • Just Sayin' Card Duo


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


Good morning everyone,

today starts a new challenge over at the bastel-traum.ch blog and the theme is «Hobby/Leisure».
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:
