Best Days with Amy

Hello! It’s Amy again and I’ve got one more Valentine’s Day card to share. This time around I wanted to take advantage of the baskets on the bike in the Best Days set and have this little cutie’s Valentines flying out behind her. It took about six stamp sets to make this sweet scene come together, which is part of what I love about the scene building process. To go through my stash of stamps and find new uses for all of the great accessory images that come in them just makes me happy. Stamping a single layer scene...

Puddle Play with Amy

Hello! It’s Amy and for me, this month has been all about making fun Valentine’s Day cards. Just because there aren’t any Valentine specific stamp sets in the Hello Bluebird store, that doesn’t mean there aren’t endless possibilities to get creative with what is available. This time around I thought it would be cute to play with the tiny heart stamps in the Puddle Play set and create a simple scene of love showering down on this adorable elephant. I began by stamping the elephant onto Copic X-Press It card stock using Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I then masked...

North Pole Littles with Amy

Hello! It’s Amy with my final blog post of 2022 here on the HB blog.

There are so many adorable characters included in this set that it can be hard to choose which ones to ink up. So I went to my collection of HB dies to see how much room I would be working with and when I settled on the Nesting Mini Slimline die I could...

A trip to the tree lot with Amy

Hello! Amy here and today I’ve brought together stamps from six different sets to create a holiday scene at the tree lot. Since these winter days are so short, a night scene was the way to go and what better way to light up the night than with the strand of lights in the Halloween Party set. Yep, they may be part of a Halloween set but these party lights are just as perfect on a Christmas card. To fill the tree lot I repeatedly stamped the tree from the O Christmas Tree set leaning to and fro. Then...

Merry Carolers with Amy

Hello! Amy here and as Christmas nears it is always fun to try and capture as many different yuletide traditions as I can on the cards that I make. I have many fond childhood holiday memories that revolve around singing Christmas carols during school pageants and other group activities so I couldn’t wait to ink up these adorable Merry Carolers. This set has so many sweet singers to choose from that it can be hard to narrow it down. Ultimately, I landed on the deer, moose and bunny trio because I really liked the interaction between them. As always,...
