Hello Bluebird New Release

Hi Crafty Friends! I hope you are healthy and doing okay during this difficult time in our world. We are all in this together! Today I’m sharing some adorable new Hello Bluebird cards I created with stamps from their latest release, and I hope they make you smile a little.

How adorable are these Meadow Bunnies from Hello Bluebird? I love the expression on their little faces, and think they look perfect paired with this new Pinkfresh Studio Slim Stitched Scallop Circles Panel die. I began by cutting the slimline panel from Simple Stories gingham paper, and then lightly marked the three circles on a white cardstock panel cut slightly larger than the slimline die cut.

Next I used a small grass stamp from Picked For You for the grassline, and then created a stencil with Trinity Stamps Scenic Border die clouds to ink blend clouds with Fiesta Blue Catherine Pooler ink. To finish the background, I used Copics to color the grass in soft matching greens to the gingham paper.

I Copic colored all of the bunnies in warm grays with a hint of pink ears, cheeks, and noses on X-Press It blending cardstock, and finished coloring of the flowers and cute little bluebird. As final touches, I added white gel pen here and there for interest. I added foam tape to the Simple Stories gingham paper before adhering to the white cardstock, and added foam tape to the bunnies as well before placing them into the circles. I finished the card by adding twine, and then glued it to a Neenah Desert Storm slimline card base.

This second card I created during last Saturday’s live Facebook demo. Did you join my sister and me for a duo demo live? It was so much fun! I began by creating masks of the little girl and bunny from the HB Picked For You set, and then placed them on a panel I die cut using another new Pinkfresh slimline die, Slimline Ornate Banner, from X-Press It cardstock. Next I used the HB scenic background stamp in the MISTI, masked everything above the gassline with purple tape, inked it with Memento tuxedo ink, removed the mask, and stamped the slimline die cut panel.

I was so upset because there were some ink smudges in the sky from where I had used the scenic stamp earlier in the day. No matter how much I tried to erase with a Mono Sand Eraser, I could not remove them.

Overall I’m pleased with the results, as most people may not even notice.

So what do you think? I adore this new release from Hello Bluebird, and it was worth the lengthy wait for them to share something new! Did you order anything yet? I know several things are sold out, but will be back in stock soon. Love and crafty hugs!
