Easter Egg Hunt with Hello Bluebird

Happy Weekend and Happy Leap Day, friends!! With the weather getting warmer, and Spring on its way, I was inspired to create a fun Easter scene. My slimline card, measuring 3 1/2 X 8 1/2", was made using the Easter Egg Stamp set and Treehouse Scene Die from Hello Bluebird.

To begin, I cut a 3 1/4 X 8 1/4" panel of Bristol smooth cardstock. I inked the top of it with Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Oxides. Next, I cut grassy hills, using the Grassy Knoll Die. I ink blended my grass strips with Shabby Shutters and Bundled Sage D.O. I then thinned out some Bundled Sage with a drop of water, and splattered it on the grass with a paintbrush to add some interest.

Next, I die cut the treehouse from various colored cardstock using the Treehouse Scene Die and assembled. I attached the assembled treehouse to the top of the inked panel with tape runner. I layered my grass onto the card, and then attached my panel to a 3 1/2 X 8 1/2" card base.

I stamped the images from Easter Egg Hunt and Spring Gatherings onto Bristol cardstock. All images were colored with Copic markers and highlighted with a white gel pen. Next, I cut out the colored images with the Easter Egg Hunt Die and the Spring Gatherings Die.

I stamped the sentiment from Spring Gatherings in Memento Tuxedo black ink. Finally, I attached all the sweet images to my card, tucking some behind the grass, and using foam tape for dimension on others. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you soon!

Hello Spring with Hello Bluebird

Hi friends! I don't know about you, but I am sooo ready for Spring and warmer weather! Today, I have a sweet Spring card for you featuring Spring Gatherings from Hello Bluebird.

To begin, I cut a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock to 4 1/4 X 5 1/2", and ink blended with Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide inks to create my sky background.

Next, I cut another piece of Bristol cardstock using the Oak Tree Scene Die. For the grass and tree, I blended Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn D.O., and splattered with some watered down Mowed lawn to add some interest to the tree. The tree trunk was cut using a brown cardstock, and inking the edges with Gathered Twigs D.O. for a bit of dimension. I attached the white frame, tree, and grass to my blue inked background.

I stamped the images from the  Spring Gatherings Stamp set with Memento ink onto Bristol cardstock. I colored the images with Copic markers, added highlights with a white gel pen, and cut out using the coordinating Spring Gatherings Die. 

I stamped the Hello Spring sentiment onto my card with black ink, and attached the sweet images to my card using foam tape for dimension. Lastly, to complete my card, I attached it to an A2 card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...see you soon!

Toadally Awesome Friend

Hi crafty friends! I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day!

Today, I have a Spring themed friendship card, featuring Garden Friends from Hello Bluebird, one of my all time favorite sets! Maybe it's because my Dad had a "thing" for frogs? He would always buy us something frog related for every occasion...frog ornaments for Christmas, frog stuffed animals for Valentine's Day, etc, LOL! In honor of my Dad, I have a frog sitting on a toadstool in my backyard, and these sweet images remind me of him and his quirky affinity for frogs! :)

To begin, I cut a 4 1/4 X 5 1/2"  panel of Bristol smooth cardstock, and inked the top half with Distress Oxide inks in Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass. Next, I cut the grass, using the Grassy Knoll Die, and inked it using Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxides. I layered my grass border over my blue inked panel.

I cut a stitched rectangle from white cardstock, and cut out a circle to frame my scene. I placed it over my inked background, using foam squares to pop it up for dimension.

Next, I stamped the images from the Garden Friends Stamp set onto Bristol cardstock, and colored with Copic markers. I added highlights to my colored images using a white gel pen and then cut them out using the Garden Friends Die.

I arranged my colored images onto my card, and attached some with foam squares for dimension.

I cut a strip of black cardstock, heat embossed it with white embossing powder, and attached to the bottom of the circle opening.

Using the Hello Friend Words Die, I cut "friend" three times from a pale pink cardstock, layered them, and glued onto my card with a fine tip glue pen. 

To complete my card, I attached my card front to an A2 card base. 

Thanks so much for joining me today! See you next time!
