Fairy Garden with Garden Friends with Nicky

Hello!  This is Nicky back with you today and I’m delighted to be sharing this watercolour painted card using the Fairy Garden and Garden Friends stamp sets which formed a part of the Hello Bluebird Stamps new release that went live on April 16th!

Maverick Card with a Feminine Twist

Greetings Hello Bluebird friends!  Leanne here today.  I have slimline card to share featuring the airplane image from Maverick.  I’ve been playing around with customizing the airplane and wanted to make a very feminine card.

I started off with stamping out some images from Easter Egg Hunt and also Spring Gatherings using...

Happy Easter with Anja

Hi everyone, Anja here with a cute Easter card created with the Spring Gatherings stamps, flowers and leaves from the Vertical Banner Die set and the Country Gingham Background.   I stamped the gingham background in lavender dye ink and die cut a circle window. Behind the opening, I did some faded ink blending with Milled Lavender Distress Oxide Ink directly on my card base made from white carstock. I adhered the gingham panel with foam tape for a little dimension. The bunny and chicks were colored with Copic markers and I used the coordinating dies to cut them...
