Hello Bluebird – Rain or Shine

Hello!

I’m back with another card for Hello Bluebird today. There isn’t a release this month, so we’re using the month to bring back our personal favorites. I can’t wait for spring to get here – we actually got some warmer weather this past weekend. I decided to make a card using the Puddle Play stamp set and decided to use parts of the Rainy Day stamp set also.

I stamped and colored the images using Copic markers: V01, V12, V15, V17 (umbrella – you really don’t need 4 markers to color a tiny umbrella…I get a bit wild with it sometimes), W0, W1 (mouse), T0, T1, T3 (elephant) , C00, C1, C4 (clouds and umbrella), R20 (blush). Then I die-cut the images and set them aside while I worked on the background of the card.

The background is created using a piece of light blue cardstock. I ink-blended Distress Oxides, using the lightest color and blended the dark colors over the light as I went: Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, and Chipped Sapphire.

I stamped the sentiment, puddle, and rain droplets all over the panel using Versamark ink and embossed it with white embossing powder. I also sprayed the panel with my Distress Sprayer to add water splatters.

Before adhering the images to my card, I die-cut this panel to add double-stitched lines to give it a nice mat over a white cardbase. I added the images to the card, layering some with foam tape for added dimension. Hope you enjoyed this card! It’s simple but I love this sweet elephant and his mouse-friend!

XOXO,

  1. You make the most adorable cards! Always love your layouts … clean and simple yet with just the right amount of accents/embellishments to keep one’s interest but never detracting from the focal point. Awesome cards!😊
