Hello, friends! Thank you for stopping by today. I’m sharing my first blog post as Hello Bluebird Design Team Member, featuring the new May 2018 stamp/die release from a few days ago. I shared a card using Hippos on Holidays on Instagram and created another new card to showcase Farmyard Little Bits. I have shared lots of dimensional cards but they are harder to mail to friends so I wanted to create a few flatter cards. They incorporate lots of masking and coloring. See below for details and supplies.
For my first card, I created a one-layer scene with Hippos on Holidays.
I stamped all the images first onto masking paper and fussy cut them. I stamped the images onto my card base and used the masks. The backgrounds were blended with Distress Oxide inks and blending tools. The clouds were formed with white paint mixed with water and stipple brush. I colored the remaining card with Copic markers and added details/shading to the sand with Copic markers.
For my second card, I created a one-layer night scene with the adorable cows from Farmyard Little Bits.
I pretty much followed the same steps as the first card. A lot of stamping, masking, ink blending with Distress Oxide and finishing it off with Copic marker coloring. The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
