Hi Bluebird Friends, Sara here!

Today it’s my turn over the Hello Bluebird Blog and I have a baby card to show you, featuring the Flying High Stamp set.

I just wanted to create a welcome baby card and I couldn’t resist to use those balloons to create my scene.

I firstly stamped all the images on a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock and I colored them all using the Copics listed below.

  • Balloon 1: RV19 – RV09 – RV04 – RV13 – E41 – E40 | E44 – E43 – E42 – E31
  • Balloon 2: RV19 – RV09 – RV04 – RV13 – RV02 – RV00 | E44 – E43 – E42 – E31
  • Fox: E08 – YR27 – E97 – YR15
  • Elephant: T5 – T4 – T2 – T1
  • Banners: RV19 – RV09 – RV04 – RV13 – RV02 – RV00
  • Birds: Y35 – Y32 – Y000
  • Bunny: E57 – E35 – E55 – E42

I also added the star details using a Polychromos brown pencil and some white Gelly Roll details on the small banners too. I then die cut all the images using coordinating Flying High dies. And I must tell you a trick to perfectly cut the balloon: since the die is quite difficult to align, I created a sort of “mask” using an A2 panel; I die cut the balloon from that panel and I always use that “empty” space to perfectly align the die over my colored image.

When everything was cut, I took a piece of White cardstock and I used a cloud stencil I had in my stash to quickly create the background; I used the Distress Oxide in Spun Sugar, which is a really light pink. I also die cut the Oh Baby Words die and I used only the “BABY” word. I used a hot pink cardstock for the slim word and some white cardstock for the shadows. To complete my card, I white heat embossed one of the Typed Everyday sentiments on some hot pink cardstock and I cut it into two small strips.

I cut the cloudy panel with the 4th largest die from the Nesting A7 die and I matted it into a slightly larger kraft cardstock. I arranged all the things over my scene and I also added some heart sequins to “fill” some empty spaces. And here’s a finished result!

Thanks for stopping by, I really hope you will like how it came out!
