Welcome to the Hello Bluebird blog, this is Nicky with you today with a sweet Spring themed card idea for you that was made using the Meadow Bunnies and Picked For You stamp sets together with the Gallery Frame #7 Die.
To create my card I first used the Gallery Frame #7 die and die cut the frame/windows. I took the outer frame, backed it with foam tape and adhered it to my card base. Next I took the inner divided frame and added glue to the reverse and inserted it inside the outer frame and stuck it down.
The remaining 4 ‘window inserts’ were retrieved to stamp and colour.
I stamped the tree image from Picked For You using a light grey ink so that it had a delicate appearance. I stamped each of the four squares in different ways since the tree image is much larger than each square. I coloured the backgrounds using the following Copic colours:-
Tree Trunks – W3, W1, W0
Grass – YG11, YG41
Sky – G0000
These windows were then glued in place on the card base.
I stamped the images from Meadow Bunnies that I was using and after colouring them I die cut using the coordinating dies. Here are the colours I used:-
Bunnies – E42, E41, E0000, W2
Cheeks – R000, R00, R20
Flowers and Carrots – YR07, YR04, Y38
Bird and Butterflies – BG15, BG32, BG11
The bunnies were adhered to the scene using foam tape and the other smaller elements were glued directly. A few points were highlighted with a white gel pen and the simple sentiment was stamped and with that, the card was complete.
I appreciate you stopping by today and I hope you can squeeze in some crafting time this week!
LOVELY!!! I would love to see a tutorial or pics of how you colored the birch trees! These light colors are so delicious! Amazing.
Thanks for your question Darci. Couldn’t be simpler, the trees were stamped with a light grey ink and then I used grey Copic markers where there are lines/details on the trunk of the trees and I used a very pale grey down each side of the trunks to give them shadow and make them look rounder. You don’t have to be too precise in fact I think it looks more natural if you’re not!
