Hello Bluebird – Bee Happy + Fishin’ Hole

Hi Friends!

The Hello Bluebird July Release is now available!  I’m featuring two products today from MANY other fabulous stamps and dies available with this release.

My first card features the new Bee Happy stamp set.  It does come with coordinating dies but I fussy-cut them because I didn’t have the dies on hand.

HB Bee Happy 1

I stamped and colored these images using Copic makers:  R20, R14, R29, Y13, Y15, YR16, YG06, G05, G19, C5, C8, B000.  Then I added white accents using a white Sakura Gelly Roll pen.

HB Bee Happy 2

On the wings and honey jar, I added glossy accents.  I used a hexagon double-stitched die to cut out a window.  On the cardbase, I used Altenew Buttercream ink to stamp the smaller hexagon (from the Bee Happy set) in a repetitive pattern to create a background.   I propped the top panel up using 3M Foam tape and adhered the images on top.  To finish, I added a white-embossed sentiment strip on black paper.

HB Bee Happy 3

My second card features the Fishin’ Hole stamp set.  It’s Wednesday, which means I’m also featuring a card for Freshly Made Sketches.  Here’s the sketch for this week:FMS Week 3.jpg

Like with my first card, I stamped and colored the images using Copic markers:  YG06, G05, G19, R14, R29, E50, E31, E25, E37, C0, C2, C5, C8Y15, YR16, B000, R20.

HB Fishin' Hole - FMS W3 1

This is the card I created for the sketch.  Funny story – one of my other design team members, Gemma, created a card VERY similar to this using circle dies before I created my card to use for this sketch – using the SAME stamp set that I’m assigned to today. What are the chances???  I feel bad that the layout is similar, but I still need to use this sketch so I made this, hoping it isn’t too similar to hers.  Gemma will be sharing her card soon, so be on the lookout for it!  I’m so blessed to work amongst such talented women – and grateful to Gemma who was very understanding when I told her my card may be similar to hers.

HB Fishin' Hole - FMS W3 2

I colored the background using Distress Oxide inks (Worn Lipstick, Fossilized Amber, Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers), added some splattered water to remove ink, and placed the top panel on top using 3M foam tape like I did with the previous Bee Happy card.  I arranged all the images on top and added foam under some pieces to add dimension.  I’m really happy about how this turned out!
