Merry Christmas with Amy Kolling

Hi Hello Bluebird fans!  Amy here today!  The holidays are upon us and I need quick and easy cards to mail out.  I came up with this design and it is so easy to make multiples. Using the Bold Holidays stamps, I stamped the MERRY with pigment ink and then using my MISTI, moved my cardstock up 1 inch.  I repeated this with 5 colors of ink.  I overstamped the last MERRY with Christmas in bold black ink.  This panel was adhered to a coordinating panel of raspberry cardstock at an angle for interest and then onto a white...

Wild About You with Amy

Hello!  Amy here and I am sharing a card using a favorite technique of mine–emboss resist.  The new Simply Squared Background is perfect for this technique!   I started by creating my background by stamping the Simply Squared Background and white heat embossing.  Using Squeezed Lemonade, Dried Marigold, and Shabby Shutters Distress Inks, I blended them over the embossed background.  Using a paper towel, I wiped away any ink on the embossing, making the design pop. A simple white frame from Gallery Frame #4 Die was used to frame my background.  After the Wild About You Words Die was cut...

For you by Amy Kolling

Hello!  Amy here sharing a simple scene just “for you”.  Cards like these are always good to have on hand!   My background was masked off to ink blend some blue sky using Broken China Distress Ink and then I went back over this using a portion of the Sunshine Scene Die to create my ink blended clouds (used the die cut portion as a stencil of sorts).  A grassy hill was die cut out of green cardstock using the Pond Builder Dies.  I created a frame and sentiment banner using the Gallery Frame #4 Die.  The sun was made...
