Fall Friends with Gemma

Today I’m sharing a card using the Fall Friends stamp set, a popular set from the August release. My card also features some other August release products and some from the July release. I began with the background. I stamped the Blowing Leaves background stamp with Frayed Burlap distress oxide ink onto kraft card. I then layered this onto a card base.

Honeycomb Shaker with Gemma

My card today features the cute Bee Happy stamp set and coordinating dies. I used the fantastic hexagon stamps and die included in the set to create a geometric background complete with shaker areas!

On the card base, I masked off areas for some ink blending. The...

Just Sayin’ Happy Birthday with Gemma

Hello, Gemma here today to share a card using some lovely products from the May release. Just Sayin’ is a really fun and versatile set. I love how many sentiments are included, which gives so many possibilities for cards. I began by stamping and copic colouring the three critters from from the set. I also coloured some accessories. I added gel pen details, then die cut everything with the coordinating dies. Next, I cut a piece of white card, the same width as my card base, but shorter. To add some interest to this, I used one of the...

Rainy Day with Gemma

Hello, Gemma here today. Thank you so much for joining me for my first post on the Hello Bluebird blog! I’m excited to be here. For my card today, I’m featuring the adorable new Rainy Day stamp set. The images in this set allow for some great scene building. I began with a white card rectangle, stamping a couple of images from the Rainy Day stamp set, along with a sentiment from the Rainbow Script stamp set. These sets team so well together. I then created masks using full sticky post-it notes, to protect the stamping. I also added...
