Skating party - Hello Bluebird Stamps

Hi Friends! I'm so exciting to be sharing my first blog post with you guys!  I made a fun and bright card using Hello Bluebird Stamps , one of my most beloved stamp companies!
Today's card features Skating Party and  the amazing Warm Wishes Words Die.

To start, I took a 4 1/2 X 6" panel of Bristol smooth cardstock to create an A6 card. I ink blended the background using Wilted Violet and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide inks.  Using a paintbrush, I flicked some watered down white acrylic paint to create a snowy look. I then stamped the snowflakes from the Skating Party stamp set with clear embossing ink.  Next, I used white embossing powder and heated to set.

I die cut the warm Wishes die twice, once from aqua cardstock, and then, from a thick glittered cardstock. Next, I layered them on top of each other, slightly offset so the aqua color pops and attached to top of card. Next, I die cut the snow  from white cardstock using the Hill and Dale Die.  I added a bit of chunky glitter along the edge for some sparkle.

I stamped the darling images onto Bristol smooth cardstock and then colored with Copic Markers, adding  details with a white gel pen. All images were then die cut using the Skating Party Die.  Then, I arranged my critters on the card front, backed with foam tape, and applied. I use foam tape on most images on every card, because I LOVE that dimension!!

Finally, I stamped the sweet sentiment in black ink right under the Warm Wishes Die. I attached my panel to a card base to complete  my card!

Thanks for stopping by to see how I created this bright and fun wintery scene. I can't wait to give this to one of my best coffee gals!
