A Fairy Merry Christmas with Hello Bluebird

Hi everyone! Today I challenged myself to create a Christmas themed card with the Fairy Garden stamp from Hello Bluebird. I love the fairies in this set and thought they would be perfect for a magical fairy themed Christmas card.

I have also made a video on my youtube channel on the card making process of this card. Subscribe to my channel if you don’t want to miss a thing.

First I stamped the images from the Fairy Garden and Garden Friends stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with my copic markers:

  • Fairy: E00, E13, R22, B00, BG02, BG04, BG10, E31, E35, E37, E39, E59
  • Butterfly: BG10, BG11, E31, E35
  • Snowdrops: YG01, YG11, YG13, YG17, YG67, C3, C1, C0, BG10

After the coloring, I die cut the images with the coordinating dies for the Garden Friends and Fairy Garden set.

For the background I stamped snowflakes from the Yeti or Not stamp set with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Then I ink blended Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass on the background. The heat embossed snowflakes resist the Oxide ink and you can just rub it off. To frame the card a bit, I also ink blended Mermaid Lagoon on the edges.

I die cut a circle out of white vellum and used the Stitched Hillside border to create the snow bank out of Tonic Sugar Crystal cardstock. For the sentiment, I die cut a wavy banner out of vellum and heat embossed the sentiment on top. I adhered the images on the vellum background with foam tape to give it dimension. I did the same for the sentiment banner but I used silicone foam tape for it as it does not show that much. As a finishing touch, I put Wink of Stella on the wings of the fairy and butterfly, and added some on the snowdrops as well.

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

Toadally Awesome Fall Card

Hi everyone! As you may have noticed, I’ve been making a number of fall cards lately. I just love the colors of fall leaves and get inspired by them. The fall themed card for today features Hello Bluebird stamps. I’ve used 2 sets: Garden Friends, and Fairy Garden.

I stamped all the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with my copic markers. As this is a fall card, I choose more muted colors:

  • Frog and leaves: YG93, YG95, YG97
  • Mushrooms and ladybug: R24, R29, R59
  • Other elements: YR000, YR01, YR20, YR21, UR24, YR27, YR04, YR07, Y18

After the coloring, I die cut the images with the coordinating dies for the Garden Friends and Fairy Garden set.

For the grass, I die cut white cardstock and ink blended Distress Oxide Ink Mowed Lawn and Cracked Pistachio. To create a fall looking sky, I used Distress Oxide Carved Pumpkin, and Mustard Seed, plus the MFT Cloud Stencil. Once the whole background scene was done, I adhered all the images with tacky glue and stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black ink. To finish of the card, I colored the eyes with a Glaze Gel pen and gave the eyes white pupils with a white gel pen.

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

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!

Card | It’s Your Day, Go Wild!

Hi everyone! I am absolutely in love with these cute jungle animals from Hello Bluebird. I actually made this card earlier, but could not post it yet, because the recipient did not receive it yet. But now that it has, I am very excited to share this card with you.

First I stamped, colored and die cut the images with the coordinating dies. The main Copic colors used are:

  • Y11, Y13, Y18
  • E55, E57, E59, E00, E13, E31
  • YG01, YG13, YG17, YG67

To create the actual layout for the scene, I chose to work with the gallery frame die. For the border, I ink blended Distress Oxide Twisted Citron on Neenah Classic Crest Solar white. And to create my own pattern paper, I stamped the leaves with VersaMark ink and brushed Perfect Pearls on top. This gives a subtle pattern with a nice shine.

For the background of the scene, I ink blended Distress Ink Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade. To add dimension, I popped up the gallery frame die with foam tape and adhered some images with foam tape, others I glued to the card.

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

Card | Life of a bee

Hi everyone! I made another card with the Bee Happy stamp set from Hello Bluebird. For this card I chose to work with a gallery frame die to create the cute little scene with the bees. On the top part of the card is their home where they store all the delicious honey. In the bottom part of the card are the flowers where they collect their honey from and where they play around like the left bee who is having a lot of fun bouncing on the flower.

For this card I made a process video which is available on my youtube channel. If you like my video’s, make sure to subscribe.

Card | Happy Bird-Day!

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing a clean & simple card featuring the Garden Friends from Hello Bluebird. For this card I wanted a soft design, setting the bird in the spotlight.

I stared by stamping one of the birds from the Garden Friends stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Classic Crest Solar white cardstock. I colored the bird with copic markers. Colors used: BG10, BG13, BG18, E00, RV11, Y18. After all the coloring was done, I die cut the bird with the coordinating dies.

For the background I used the Circle Decorative stencil from CraftEmotions and Distress Ink Peacock Feathers. I stamped the music notes and sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The ‘happy’ is from the Happy Happy Happy stamp set from Lawn Fawn. The ‘bird-day’ is from the Garden Friends stamp set from Hello Bluebird.

And that finishes up the card! I hope you like it and it gave you inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!

Card | Happy Bee-Day!

Hi everyone! This is my first card ever using Hello Bluebird stamps! I bought a couple of sets a few weeks back, but haven’t had time to play with them earlier. They were on my wish list for a while already, but not that easy to get in The Netherlands. Anyway, now that I have them you’ll be seeing more cards in the next weeks featuring Hello Bluebird.

In this card I’m featuring the Bee Happy stamp set which I think is very cute! I started by stamping the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored everything with my Copic Sketch markers. The colors I used: Y11, Y13, Y18, C9, C5, C3, C1, B00, BG10.

After all the coloring was done, I die cut the bees with the coordinating dies. To add shine to the eyes, I went over them with a 3d glaze gel pen and added white dots with a gel pen to make the eyes pop.

For the background I used a honeycomb stencil from a Dutch brand called Dutch Doobadoo. I blended Distress Ink Mustard Seed over the stencil for the hexagon pattern. The sentiment I stamped with Versamark ink on black cardstock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. To frame the main scene I used pattern paper from the Spring Fling pack from Lawn Fawn.

And that finishes up the card! I hope you like it and it gave you inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!
