Hi Bluebird Friends, Sara here!

Today it’s my turn over the Hello Bluebird Blog and I have an Easter themed card to show you, featuring the Little Painters set.

I was inspired by the current #hellobluebirdspringchallenge for the color palette, and this is also a reminder because the challenge will run until March, 31st at 11:59PM MST. One lucky winner will be chosen at random to receive a $50 gift certificate to the Hello Bluebird shop.


I started from the banner, which took me a bit of time to be created. I chose 4 colored cardstock (that matched the color palette) from my stash and I trimmed them down to 3,5″ to 5″. I then put them on a stamping tool and repeatedly stamped one of the sentiments included in the Spring Banner Script stamp with a black ink. Since the colors were really pale, I preferred having a small “shadow” behind the white embossed line. I then moved just a bit the stamp and I repeated the process with Versamark ink, in order to emboss it with white. In this way, I got 4 colored panels with the same sentiment stamped in the same place: I trimmed down everything in 0,25″ vertical strips and I assembled my multi colored banner, which I die cut with the Vertical Banner Die.

I moced then into my scene, I stamped all the critters from the Little Painters  Stamp on some Neenah Solar White cardstock and I colored them all with the Copics listed below.

  • Bunnies: E44 – E43 – E42 – E40 – E11 – E000 | RV34 – R11
  • Birds: Y35 – Y32 – Y11 – Y000 – E97 | RV34 – R11
  • Light Blue combo: B45 – B32 – B41 – B000
  • Pink combo: R24 – R32 – R21 – R11
  • Yellow combo: YR23 – YR21 – Y21 – YR30

I assembled everything on a 4″x5,25″ white panel, but there was too much “empty space” that I didn’t like. So, I took out the Falling Snow Background and I stamped it with a light grey to create some interest. I attached the critters with a combination of liquid glue and foam tape, so that I could get some dimension.

To complete the card, I decided to matt it with a 4,5″x5,75″ panel of a coordinated patterned paper.

And here’s the finished result!

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