Tree Neighbors with Amy

Hello friends,  Amy here with a card that I’ve been wanting to create since last fall. During that fall release I made a large 5×7 card using the Nesting A7 Dies and the Tree Neighbors stamps. For that scene I chose all of the nocturnal animals from the set and created a night scene where they are all congregating together. At the time I had it in the back of my mind to create a companion card featuring the rest of the forest critters in a day scene taking place in the same hollow tree and grove. All these...

Fairy Dance (in the rain) with Amy

Hello friends,  Amy here with a twist on the cute Fairy Dance stamp set. As we near the month of April I can’t help but recite the old adage, ‘April showers bring May flowers.’ So when it came time to sit down and get crafty, my first thought was of all the fun rainy day themed sets that Hello Bluebird has to choose from. I came across the Puddle Play set full of adorable elephants but it was the stand-alone umbrella stamp that really got my creative wheels turning. I had flipped past the Fairy Dance set just before...

It’s a Birch Trees gathering with Amy

A very happy hello to everyone,  Amy here with a sweet mini slimline card to welcome spring. I recently realized that I had yet to ink up the large 6×6 Birch Trees Background stamp so I had to remedy that situation.

Now all I had to decide was who would be hanging out in this forest. Flipping through my binders of Hello Bluebird stamps is always the best part....

It’s a cocoa party with Amy

A warm hello to my fellow creatives,  Amy here with a cute cold weather card to bring smiles during these winter days. As I was flipping through my collection of Hello Bluebird stamp sets the cute little hedgehog riding on a sled in the Snow Day set caught my eye. Having kept a pair of hedgehogs as pets years ago, I still have a soft spot in my heart for these prickly little critters. Now I just needed to figure out where this guy was headed, so I continued to flip through my stamps until I found another hedgie...

Sending Holiday Cheer with Amy

A big holiday hello! Amy here and today I’m sharing a Christmas card that I designed around the Sending Holiday Cheer words die. These large sentiments are so great for quick cards that still have a lot of impact. For the supporting cast of cute characters I went back to the older Snowball Fight set that is full of cats and dogs all decked out for cold weather and used their coordinating dies to pop them in front of the words. Because the footprint of the Sending Holiday Cheer word die is basically square shaped I decided to use...
