Fall vibes – Hello Bluebird

Hello Everyone,

It has been a busy week but I managed to carve out some time and make a cute card for the current Hello Bluebird Fall Challenge. I really love the colours of Fall, it inspired my card.

I started with stamping and colouring the images with Copic markers from the following Hello Bluebird sets: Pumpkin time and Fall buddies. I coloured the images a long time ago and don’t remember the exact colours I used, sorry for that. I cut everything out with the coordinating dies.

For the sentiment I first gold heat embossed the frame from Banner buddies on cream cardstock and added the gold embossed sentiments inside.

I used Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink to add some shading to the edges of the banner. The banner holder I die cut from gold metallic cardstock.

The background I kept simple, I did some ink blending on Bristol Smooth cardstock with Distress Oxide inks: Crackling Campfire, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint. Then the magical splatters: diluted ink, water spritz and black gouache. I also added some gold watercolour sprinkles, it makes it festive!

I assembled the card, popping up the critters with 3D foam squares. As a finishing touch I used glossy accents on the pumpkin stems, scarves and the cart wheel.

I also emphasized the eyes with a black glaze pen.

I will link this project up to the Hello Bluebird Fall Challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge (Sparkle and Shine).

I hope you liked my card and will pop in again soon!

See you,

Zsofi

Happy New Year – 2020!

Hello Everyone,

I cannot believe that it is 2020 already, I need to practice writing it down. I feel it is going to be a special year, I am looking forward to all the changes it may bring in my life. I have some personal goals set and also crafting wise I have big ambitions to improve my colouring and photo-shooting skills and learn something new. I want to start making videos and teach the beauty of cardmaking. Super plans, right?

To celebrate the new year I created a simple critter card using two of my all time favourite brands: Lawn Fawn and Hello Bluebird. I stamped and coloured the bears and pines from the LF Winter Skies set and cut them out with the coordinting dies.

I took a Blue Violet cardstock piece and cut it down with the postage stamp die from Newton’s Nook Designs Frameworks set. It is my all time fave! I white heat embossed the sentiment from the Hello Bluebird North Star set and splattered the panel with white acrylic paint.

I die cut a stitched hill from Simon Says Stamp white glitter cardstock and assembled the scene on a kraft card base. I popped up the bear with 3D foam squares and added stripes to their scarf with a white gel pen.

So simple yet so cute, isn’t it? I am wishing you all a wonderful new year with all your wishes coming true, full of happy moments and quality time with your loved ones! And heartfelt thanks for following me on my crafting journey, it means the world to me!

See you soon with more inspiration! Have a lovely day,

Zsofi
