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 | Sunset Birthday with Distress Ink

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing another beach themed card with the Beach Chickies from Mama Elephant. In a previous post I created a card with a sunset in a polaroid frame and I liked that idea so much that I extended it to a whole card.

To create the background, I masked of the top and bottom part of the paper. From the bottom to the way up I blended the following Distress Inks making sure they are blended well together for a smooth transition: Scattered Straw, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Worn Lipstick. To give the background a nice shine, I brushed Perfect Pearls on top. To also a bit more interest, I sprayed water on top to fix the pearls and create water droplets.

For coloring the Beach Chickies I used my Copic Sketch markers:

  • Chickie: Y11, Y13, Y18, B00, BG02, BG05, YG01, YG13, YG17
  • Coconut: E55, E57, E59, YG01, YG13, YG17, Y13
  • Umbrella: B00, BG02, BG05, B93, B95, B97

After I finished coloring I used the coordinating dies to die cut them. To also add some shimmer and shine to the images I used Stickles, Wink of Stella, and Glossy Accents. With a white gel pen I added dots to the umbrella. I stamped the sentiment with VersaSafine Onyx Black ink as that is a nice juicy ink which I needed because I coated it in clear glossy embossing powder and heat set it.

I hope you like this card 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!
