Hello Bluebird • November Release • Team Share


Hello peeps,

have you seen the new Hello Bluebird November Release products?! Everything is so adorable and fun to create with! This week the Design Team shares their projects for your inspiration.

Yesterday, we showcased the Frosty Littles set. These snowmen are just the cutest!

First, I blended together the two Distress Oxide Inks Milled Lavender and Tumbled Glass. These soft colors are perfect for a dreamy winter sky. I colored the images with Copics (altered the trees and gave them a snow cap, too) and white heat embossed the sentiment from the previously released Snow Play set.

For the card design, I used the versatile Gallery Frame Die #1 and cut a white and a grey frame. I placed the images into the die-cut window openings. I'm totally pleased how well and quick this card came together.

The second card features the fabulous North Star set. Of course, I had to create a starry night sky.

Again, I did some ink blending with my beloved Distress Oxides (Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire, Seedless Preserves, Wilted Violet and Black Soot). I sprinkled on white paint to create a sky full of stars and white heat embossed the constellation images from the stamp set.

Next, I colored the cute critters with Copics and positioned them in front of a die-cut circle window. I love the beautiful sentiment which I heat embossed with Ranger «Liquid Platinum» embossing powder.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Altenew • Floral Art • Happy Birthday


Hi everyone,

took a little break from holiday crafting to create this birthday card for my lovely aunt using the beautiful «Floral Art» stamp set by Altenew.

I stamped the solid flower and leaf images with Dye Inks by Altenew (Frosty Pink, Coral Berry and Ruby Red) and Simon Says Stamp (Fog). The outline images were heat embossed with Ranger «Liquid Platinum» embossing powder.

For the background, I used the Altenew «Cross Stich Canvas Die» which die cuts a dotted panel in the size of an A2 card. Love the subtle texture it adds. I white heat embossed the sentiment from the Altenew «Persian Motifs» set on a strip of SSS «Fog» cardstock. Finally, I embellished the card with light pink, clear and white sequins from my stash.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Happy Thanksgiving for those celebrating!

DT bastel-traum.ch Challenge #71


Good morning,

Eep! Only 38 days til Christmas! So let me invite you to join the new challenge over at the bastel-traum.ch blog with the theme «Christmas/Winter».
This challenge will run until December 15th, 8:55 am CET (Central European Time).

I inked up the adorable Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember set «Merry Mail» they did in collaboration with Mama Elephant.

For the soft sky background, I ink blended some pastel Distress Oxide colors (Tumbled Glass, Shaded Lilac and Spun Sugar). I added water droplets to create a little bit texture. I colored the images with Copics and fussy cut them out.

When the background was completely dry, I white heat embossed the large word «merry». Next, I cut the cloud border with one of the Mama Elephant «Landscape Trio» dies. I heat embossed the sentiment with Silver embossing powder before adhering the clouds with foam tape. To finish off my card, I added a tiny red heart next to the sentiment.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

DT Stempelgarten Challenge November


Good morning,

YAY! The Stempelgarten Challenge is finally back! The new theme for November is «Favorite Colors».


How fun is this sweet My Favorite Things «Cool Christmas» stamp set?! I had to have it from the moment I saw it!

My favorite colors are aqua/turquoise, blue and bold colors in general. But I also like plain white and neutrals like my favorite light grey «Fog» cardstock from Simon Says Stamp. I tried to incorporate my favorites in this Christmas card.

First, I sponged the background with «Tumbled Glass» Distress Oxide Ink. I die cut the row of houses (MFT «Our Town» Die-namics) and the road (MFT «Open Road» Die-namics) to help build a scene for my snowmen car. I heat embossed the sentiment with «Liquid Platinum» embossing powder.

I stamped the images with VersaFine «Onyx Black» ink on Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock and colored them with ZIG Clean Color Real Brushes. For a little bit of dimension, I popped up the car and one of the trees with foam tape. I also adhered a small die-cut heart to one of the houses.

You will have time until November 30th, 2018 to join the Stempelgarten Challenge and this is the prize you could win:

A craft package from the Stempelgarten Online Shop with a value of CHF 20.–.

I'm entering the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge with the theme «Anything Goes».

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great start to the new week!

Hello Bluebird • Snow Play • Tis the Season


Hello everyone,

I'm catching up on using more of the fabulous Hello Bluebird October release products. Today's card features the cute Snow Play set, Tis the Season sentiment and Hill and Dale Die.

These cuties are so much fun and I colored them with Copics. For the background, I blended together «Blueprint Sketch» and «Mermaid Lagoon» Distress Oxide Inks. I sprinkled on some water to lift the color. I let it dry completely and white heat embossed the large sentiment.

I die cut two snow hills from white cardstock and arranged all my sweet critters – some were popped up with foam tape.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a nice weekend!
