Christmas Blessings with Anja Bytyqi

Hi everyone! Anja here with a fun little Christmas card. I couldn’t resist to dress up this cute Pig Day fellow with a Santa’s Hat from the Joyful Mouse set. I colored the images with Copic markers and cut them out with the companion dies. I stamped the Cozy Plaid Background with Bundled Sage Distress Oxide Ink onto some light green cardstock. Next, I die cut a circle window and put a piece of white woodgrain cardstock behind the opening. I stamped the sentiment from Away in a Manger in black and popped up the panel with fun foam....

Happy Fall with Anja Bytyqi

Happy¬† Sunday everyone! Anja here with a colorful Fall card featuring some wonderful products from the August release. At first, I stamped the Blowing Leaves Background in Versamark ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I gently applied Nuvo “Catherine Wheel” Shimmer Powder and sprayed the whole background with water. I love how fast you can create a watercolored look with these powders – not to forget the pretty shimmer they leave. I die cut the scalloped frame (included in the Gallery Frame Die¬†#2 set) from dark brown woodgrain cardstock. I stamped the bunny, pumpkins and leaf...

Next, I blended together the Distress Oxides Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap to build a sandy hill. For some...

Building a wreath with Anja Bytyqi

Hi everyone! Anja here and I’m thrilled to publish my very first post on the Hello Bluebird blog. I want to share a card with you that features the Woodland Littles stamp set. I’ve used the small solid images to build my own wreath. As a guide for my wreath, I drew a thin circle line with a pencil and the help of a 2″ circle die. I repeatedly stamped all the images in different colors. I made sure to even use the tiny dots to fill in empty spaces. In the center of the wreath, I lightly sponged...
