Thinking of You with Love… from Susie

“I wrote in a song that in the long, long trip of growing, there are stops along the way… ~ Mister Rogers Hello Bluebird Friends! Christmas is only eight days away – to a child it must seem like a long, long trip of “are we there yet?”   Today I’m taking a look back through my own childhood stops along the way. I love red, I do!   And I love Christmas with all it brings.  But I am especially fond of Valentine’s Day.  Valentine baskets, mailboxes, cards to create and color, cookies to bake and decorate — February colored...

Flurries of Fun with Gemma

I’ve combined some of the fabulous October release to make a fun Christmas card to share today. I began by working on the background. The new Snowy Sky Scene and Winter Woods Overlay dies layer beautifully together. I die cut both scenes, adding colour with distress oxide inks. I used cracked pistachio, evergreen bough and blueprint sketch for the sky, and I added some weathered wood distress oxide ink to the edges of the trees. On the other pieces of the Snowy Sky Scene, I used some WOW Sparkling Snow embossing glitter to add some Christmas sparkle. I then layered all the pieces...

Hello Friend Card with Leanne

Hi there! Leanne here today. I’m sharing a friendship card I’ve created with some of my all time favorite Hello Bluebird stamps. McGregor’s Garden and the Country Gingham background are right up there as my most used HB stamps. They pair together perfectly to create a cheerful card design. This card is A2 size and I started by making the gingham panel. I used Catherine Pooler Be Mine ink to stamp the gingham and then die cut with a scalloped frame die from my stash. I used a stitched circle die to make the base for the little bunny...

Light Up Fairy Card with Marine

Today I am back with a new light up card featuring cute fairies by Hello Bluebird decorating their Christmas tree. I hope you’ll like it. I started by creating the background using non traditional Christmas colors: shaded lilac and spun sugar. As always, I splattered water on my panel and used a paper towel to dry it and add texture, and to create falling snow I simply splattered white paint on the paper. The images were stamped on neenah solar white cardstock using memento tuxedo black ink and colored using my alcohol markers. Here are the supplies I used: – Fairy...
