Cards · Hello Bluebird

For a Fairy Good Friend

Hi everyone! One of my favorite brands is definitely Hello Bluebird. I just love their style and it was long due I created another card with these beautiful stamps. To create this card I combined 2 stamp sets: Garden Friends, and Fairy Garden.

For the card making process check out my video below or hop over to my channel. If you like watching my video’s, do not forget to subscribe.

I stamped all the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with my copic markers. For the grass, I die cut white cardstock and ink blended Distress Oxide Ink Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron. To create a fall looking sky, I used Distress Oxide Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, and Mustard Seed. To add sparkle to the background, I splattered Shimmer Spray on top.

From some left over cardstock of the ink blended background, I die cut a bunch of leaves. That die is part of the Birch Tree die set. Now all the elements are done, I assembled the card and added dimension in a couple of places with foam tape. And that finishes of the card.

I hope you like this card and it gave you inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!

Fuzzy Hugs and Warm Wishes

Hi everyone! The latest Mama Elephant release is just so amazing! I really like a lot from this release. For this card I decided to go with the adorable penguins holding a heart.

The background of this card is created with this beautiful stencil from SugarPea Designs called Geo Snowflake. The Distress Oxide colors I used are Shaded Lilac and Tumbled Glass which go beautifully together. The sentiment I also stamped with those same colors with a gradient effect.

I stamped the penguins from the Fuzzy Hugs stamp set on Perfect Colouring paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with my copic makers in colors that match the background:

  • Penguins: YR01, YR07, C0, C1, C3, C5
  • Penguin Hat: BG72, BG75, BG78, BG15, BG13, BG11
  • Heart: BV00, BV02, BV04

For the snow bank I die cut white cardstock with the Stitched Hillside Border die from Lawn Fawn and popped it up with foamtape. This helps the penguins stand out a bit more as well from the busy background. I thought about adding shimmer and glitter as well, but I actually liked the card like this already so I decided to leave it.

It was really fun to create this card and I hope it gave you inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!

To Some Bunny Special

Hi everyone! Recently I received my package with the Stamptember Snow Bunnies set from Lawn Fawn and I thought the bunny with the scarf was very cute. That bunny inspired me to create a fall themed card with the bunny having its own vegetable or carrot garden.

For this card I used quite a lot of different stamp sets and dies, and I just love how it worked beautifully together. To start, I stamped one bunny and a bunch of carrots from the Snow Bunnies set, and the other bunny is from Butterfly Kisses. I colored everything with my copic markers:

  • Bunnies: YR20, YR21, YR000, YR01, YR02
  • Scarf: YG93, YG95, YG97
  • Carrots: YR04, YR27, YG95, YG97

After coloring there was a lot of die cutting involved. Basically all pattern paper on this card is from the Fall Fling pack, which I absolutely love. From that paper pack I die cut the grass, the mushrooms, and the foliage of the trees. The birch trees themselves and the stems of the mushrooms are die cut from the Speckled Eggshell cardstock. I really feel the mushrooms add a lot to the fall look. These are from a dutch brand called Jocelijne Design.

To get even more of a fall feeling, I used Distress Oxide Inks to blend a beautiful fall looking background. The colors I used are: Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin, and Mustard Seed. To add more interest to the background, I sprayed water with Perfect Pearls on top. After that was dry, I assembled the card and added dimension in a couple of places using foam tape.

I really love the fall look of this card and the bunny with his own carrot garden is just so cute. I hope you like this card too and it gave you inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!
