Sunset Hello | ft. Hello Bluebird Stamps "Silly Birds"
Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.
Today I have a card using a very new stamp company; Hello Bluebird! (maybe it's just new to me, but based on my order number, I'm thinking they're pretty new all round)
I decided to just play around before work so there's no video for this one, but so far I'm pretty impressed with the quality and they have some super cute stuff, I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what they come out with next.
To begin, I stamped the flamingo and the leaves from the "Silly Birds" stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock, then coloured them in with Copic markers.
I die cut the panel and the background panel with some of Lawn Fawn's "Stitched Rectangles". The patterned paper is from one of my Coastal Village paper packs that I had show in a previous haul video.
I adhered the patterned paper to the front of a standard A2 sized card base, then added the accent strip (conveniently it was the other side of the paper).
I masked off my images and used Abandoned Coral, Dried Marigold and Mustard Seed Distress Ink to create a sunset background. I used a very light hand to add some Broken China Distress ink under the water.
For the water panel I used the same small stitched rectangle to cut a piece of blue vellum, then used the small ocean waves boarder die from Lawn Fawn to die cut the top. I prepped that with my powder tool and stamped the "Oh, Hello" from Hello Bluebird's "Spring Script" with VersaMark ink then heat embossed with detail white embossing powder.
Finally, to finish off the card I added a 4mm googly eye from Studio Katia, just to add a little something - and it's super cute.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already please follow me on the right side bar, over on Facebook and on YouTube! Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
