Hello my friends and happy Tuesday! I hope you all enjoyed a long Veteran's honoring weekend. Mark and I were in Maine this past weekend visiting my mom after her recovery from knee replacement surgery. She is coming along well considering it's only been two weeks, but I think she's already bored out of her mind from all the downtime, so she was happy to have the company!
Today I am sharing a card made with a new-to-me stamp company called Hello Bluebird. I tried to find a little more information about Hello Bluebird to share with you, but the company website was not fully updated. This relatively new stamp company (2017) is based in Kalispell, Montana, and features adorable stamps and dies. At first I was hesitant because it appeared many of the images in the stamp sets were very small, but cute won out and I bought three sets to try! Today's card uses the Frosty Friends stamp set and while these images are fairly small, they are excellent for scene building which is what many stamps are about.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Landscape, I cut the frame from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Before adhering the frame to the card, I adhered Lawn Fawn Chunky Glitter to the two rows of snowbanks. I cut two birch trees from the Lawn Fawn Birch Tree Lawn Cuts out of white cardstock and adhered them behind the frame. The purple background was simply a sheet of paper from the Watercolor Wishes paper pack. *TIP: This paper is excellent for background scenes if you don't feel like the mess of sponging, watercolor or Distress Oxides! All of the images were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and stamped on Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. All images were die cut and colored using Spectrum Noir alcohol ink markers. I added highlights to the images using a White Uniball Gel pen. All images were adhered to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals for added height. Lastly, I added a coat of Lawn Fawn Prisma Glitter to the snowmen hat brims and and trees for added sparkle.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
