Merry Little Christmas with Amy Kolling

Hello!  Amy K. here with a holiday card using Christmas is Coming from the new October release.  This set is so unique with these adorable images that are so unlike any I’ve seen! To create my card, I started with a panel of Bristol Smooth carstock and white heat embossed the Falling Snow Background.  Using Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink, the ink was blended in ombre fashion upward on my panel.  Using a paper towel, the snow was buffed to wipe away any left over ink to really make the snow stand out.   While I had my Cracked Pistachio Distress...

Snow Play with Jess

Good morning!  Jess here with a festive Christmas card featuring the adorable penguins from Snow Play! I love the entire Snow Play set but those adorable penguins were just calling my name!  To start I stamped them with versafine, heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder, and colored them with copics before die-cutting them with the coordinating dies!  I added a few accents with a white gel pen and spectrum noir clear sparkle.  I also added a little nuvo crystal glaze to their scarves and hats and sprinkled them with chunky and prisma glitter. Next I masked off a piece...

Hello Pumpkin with Audrey

Hello there!  Audrey here!  Today, I have a card to share with you using the adorable Pumpkin Patch stamp set and coordinating Pumpkin Patch dies from the October release, which is available NOW in the Hello Bluebird shop!

Joyful Mouse with Gemma

With the warm days of summer behind us, I’m definitely getting in the mood for making Christmas cards. Today I have a card using an adorable Hello Bluebird Christmas stamp set called Joyful Mouse. I love to make Christmas cards with non-traditional colours. I decided on a colour scheme of rose gold and coloured my images with soft pinks and browns. For the background, I took a piece of white card slightly smaller than my card base, and die cut the word Christmas across the width, using the Charlie Alpha die set. I also die cut the letters again...

Glad We’re Friends with Anja Bytyqi

Hello everyone, Anja here with another card mixing and matching stamp sets. I combined the Greetings Bear with the Bee Happy set. For the gradient background, I blended together three Distress Oxide Inks (Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar, Tattered Rose). I stamped the hexagons with VersaMark sticky ink and heat embossed them in Gold. Next, I colored the images with Copic markers and cut them out using the companion dies. I love how you can tuck something (like this honey pot) inbetween the bear’s paws. The sentiment is included in the Farmyard Little Bits stamp set and I white heat...
