Hi Bluebird Friends, Sara here!
Today it’s my turn over the Hello Bluebird Blog (the first of 2023! Happy New Year!)band I have a wintry card to show you, mixing and matching a few products.
I looked into my HB stash and I found this cute snowman that I hadn’t already used this season. So, I decided to pair it up with the girl included into the “Feed the Bird” stamp set and the the recent released “Winter Birch Scene Die“. I stamped the two main protagonist using some Memento Black ink onto some Neenah Solar White cardstock and I colored everything with the copics listed below:
- Girl’s skin: E15 – E13 – E11 – E000 – RV34
- Girl’s hair: E47 – E79
- Girl’s bonnet, jacket and shoes: R39 – R56 – R35 – R43 – YR61
- Girl’s scarf: BV08 – BV25 – BV13 – BV11
- Snowman: BV20 – B60
- Snowman’s hat: C9 – C8 – C6 – C5 | YR31 – Y32 – YR30
- Snowman scarf and gloves: YR31 – Y32 – YR30 | BV08 – BV25 – BV13 – BV11 | R39 – R56 – R35 – R43 – YR61
I then die cut both using coordinating dies and let aside while working on the rest of the card.
I die cut the Winter Birch Scene Die from some Neenah Solar White too, since I planned to add just a touch of color with copics too (BV29 – BV25 – BV23 – BV20). To complete the scene, I also added one of the pine tree included in the “Slimline Skating Pond Scene Die“.
I took an A2 piece of white cardstock and I ink blended the Distress Oxides in Dried Marygold and Victorian Velvet, I also splattered some acrilic paint in order to create the snow. I waited for it to dry and then assembled everything with both liquid glue and foam tape. To complete the card, I stamped the sentiment from “My Snowman” at the upper centre and I added the small hearts and the small polymer clays snowflakes. And here’s a finished result!
Thanks for stopping by, I really hope you will like the final result.
