Hello Bluebird – Trick or Treat

Good Morning!

The Hello Bluebird August Release is now available and our design team has been sharing wonderful projects with you for the past 8 days.  We’re kicking off the last day of the release celebration today and I’m sharing two cards using the Trick or Treat set, Spooky Script stamp set, Spooky Scene Die, and the Gallery Frame Die #3.  So many wonderful products!

HB Trick or Treat_Spooky Script

The first card I’m sharing uses the Spooky Scene Die – it comes with lots of spooky accessories but I didn’t use them on my cards because I had so many things to play with!  I knew I wanted to create this background – so I die cut this scene die using white cardstock and ink-blended each piece to create the background.

HB Trick or Treat 1

The ink-blending was tough for me because it’s hard to ink-blend little pieces without causing the paper to bend and crease!  I did the grass part 4 times!

Distress Oxide Inks used:  Black Soot, Wilted Violet, Shaded Lilac, Forest Moss, Mowed Lawn, Gathered Twigs, Walnut Stain.

HB Trick or Treat 2

Once I was happy with my background, I adhered the images that I stamped and colored using Copic Markers from the Trick or Treat stamp set (coordinating dies are also available).

Copic colors used:  E50, E34, E25, Y000, Y02, Y17, YR04, R20, V12, V15, R24, R29, B32, B24, C3, C7, G21, YG63

I embossed the sentiment and a few sparse stars on card using white embossing powder to finish off my first card.

For my second card, I decided to create a more simple scene with a vampire theme.  I first masked off a large circle to imitate a moon shape, then ink blended with Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Ink.

With it still masked off, I watered down some Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide Ink and made some splatters to the sky around the moon.  I used the Gallery Frame Die #3 and the Grassy Knoll Die to create the frame and dark grass.  I embossed the sentiment on this grass piece and layered the images I stamped and colored over it.

The tomb stone is a stamped image over gray paper and lightly ink-sponged with a coordinating gray ink for some dimension.  Then I finished off the card with a few Nuvo Jewel Drops in Limoncello.

Copic colors used for the little vampire:  E50, R20, C3, C7, R24, R29
