Hello Bluebird – Fall Friends

Hi Friends!

Welcome to the preview of the Hello Bluebird August Release!  Today, I’m sharing two cards using the following new products, which will be available on August 15th:  Fall Friends, Blowing Leaves Background Stamp, Gallery Frame Die #3, Birch Trees Die.  I’ve created one card for a fall look and the other for a more wintery look.

HB - Fall Friends Cards

I actually started with the winter card – so lets talk about that one first.  When I created this card, I knew I wanted to keep it simple with just the one bunny and a few leaves and pumpkins.

I created the background by penciling in the frame and masking off the area to ink-blend using Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide inks.  I added some water splatters and set it aside to dry.

Next I die cut the birch leaves.  To give it some color, I used W00 and W1 Copic markers to add dimension in the openings and on the branches.

I glued the birch trees to the back of the frame to ensure that they were a perfect fit without any extending beyond the frame before adhering it all to the ink-blended background panel.

Then I added my Copic-colored images on top and a black sentiment-strip to finish complete this card.  This bunny is just so sweet!

Copic markers used:  R14, R29 ,V000, V01, Y11, Y21, Y38

My second card is definitely busier. I knew I had to feature the new Falling Leaves Background set so I used it as a background on this card. I stamped it with Versamark ink and embossed it with white embossing powder and ink-blended over it using Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, and Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Inks.

I used the negative from the Gallery Frame Die #3 from the previous project in my winter scene to create a frame for this card – adhering birch trees to it.

Once adhering the frame/birch trees to the background panel, I layered the images over it, adding foam tape to various images for some additional dimension.

Copic markers used:  R14, R29 ,V000, V01, Y11, Y21, Y38, YR31, YR24, YR04, E23, E41, E53, C00, C1, C8, B32, B24, B000, YG07, G16, R00, R20, R22, BG11, BG23

For the sentiment, I stamped on white paper and layered a piece of glitter cardstock underneath to give it a shimmery shadow.
