Boo! Halloween fun with Hello Bluebird!

Hello everybody and welcome back to my blog! 
Today it's all about Halloween Vibes and the "too cute to spook cuties" from the new Hello Bluebird Collection are the real stars of the show!
Let's start with my first project, i have 2 to show u today so grab a cup of coffe and get cosy :)







































I'm in love with this little scene, that little bear with his caramel apple is just too adorable! 
First of all i die cut the Spooky Scene Die out of some dark kraft cardstock and I actually used Paper Bag cardstock by Lawn Fawn. I shaded the trees a little bit with the Walnut Stain Distress inks and the grass i die cut it out of white and colored it with Twisted Citron and Shabby Shutter + a little bit of Peeled Paint Distress inks.







































I stamped, colored and die cut lots and lots of images from all these sets: Halloween Party, Halloween Fun and Ghostly Greetings. 
And omg i can't have enough of this little spider and its candies! ahah!!






































I created my background by inking a white panel with Picked Raspberry, Abandoned Coral and Spiced Marmelade and i composed and glued down my scene as u see it. 
Then i stamped my sentiment from the Spooky Script set and i love this font, it's so pretty and elegant, it maches perfectly a fun and cute Halloween card.
I added some sparkle and little white details with a white gel pen and i can't stop looking at it! eheh!

Now.. on to my other project!
I created another card with the Trick or Treat set :)






































I went Crazy Halloween with this, i mean a witch, a vampire and a little Frankestein?! they are soo cute!!! ahah!
First of all i created my card and this is actually a one layer card - i did glued my images down with foam tape but since no more layers are involved i consider this a s a 1 layer design :)
I colored it with Abandoned Coral, Dusty Concord and mostly Chipped Shappire distress inks, i die cut a stitched banner and i stamped my sentiment from the same set in black.






































I glued down all the elements and btw i had to fussy cut my images cause dies are still on their way but coordinated dies are avaiable for this set as well.
Finally i added some white dots here and there to achieve a starry look for my background.
Oh i had soo much fun creating these and i hope u will join them as much as i do :)

Thanks, u're such a gouda friend card for Heffy Doodle!


Hi there!

Today i'm up on the Heffy Doodle blog with a card full of little happy critters!






































These little hamsters/mouses from the Hello Squeakheart set are my faves and i always love creating happy secens with them!
First of all i stamped all the images with memento black ink, i colored them with copics and die cut them with all the coordinated dies.





































I also added lots of images from the Teacher's Pet set and the speech bubbles are from the Whatcha Sayin' one.
I created my card base out of some white cardstock and i masked the bottom to create a light green background with the Twisted Citron Oxide ditress ink, then i die cut the Thanks script out of black cardstock.
I also die cut a stitched banner and stamped my sentiment. After that i glued down all the elements with a combo of liquid glue and foam adhesive.






































Finally i added some sparkling sequins by Pretty Pink Posh to fnish my card.
I also decorated my envelope this time, i placed the Numicon stencil on the back, masked the bottom using the memo tape and sponged the same distress ink used before on top.
It's a super fun effetc and it takes such little time :)

Hope you like my card+ envelope set and thank you so much for stopping by today!

Fruit Cocktail card for Sunny Studio!

Hi there,today i'm up on Sunny Studio with a clean and simple card feat the new Fruit Cocktail set!




All the talented ladies in the team are showing you how to bild up the images with the amazing layering stamps technique so this time, for my project, i thought a little out of the box and gave this set a fun twist! 
I created this card by die cutting the fruits and i colored with Distress Inks. 
Yeah..It's that simple! 
The coordinated dies do not always allow you to just die cut  and color them but in this specific case they are so close to the original fruit shapes you can do it.


For all the leaves i used Twisted Citron, Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint distress inks; i colored the pear with the same combo and i used Spiced Marmelade and Abandoned Coral for the peach and the apple.

I cut out my card base out of white cardstock and i created a dry embossed frame with my scoring board on to the front.

I adhered them on to my white card, i stamped my sentiment ( wich i love!) in memento black ink at the bottom and I added some sparkling sequins by Pretty Pink Posh to finish my card.

I'm so super happy bout how it turned out, hope u like it too and thank you so much for stopping by today.

Happy fall projects for Hello Bluebird!


Hi there and happy tuesday!
Today i'm super excited to showcase some of the new products from the upcoming release by Hello Bluebird; grab a cup of tea/ coffe and keep on reading!
The new items are all Fall/ Halloween inspired since Autumn is just around the corner and they are adorable, i can't stop creating! ihih!


For my first project i created a little piece of home decor, can't wait to find the perfect spot for this in my bedroom :)






































All these little critters are from the new Fall Friends stamp set, they just make me feel so cozy! They also remind me of Zootopia cause they are so pretty all dressed up :)






































To create this little picture i started by the background- just measured my frame and cut a piece of white cardstock that fitted. Then colored it by sponging some Spiced Marmelade distress ink and i also created some little splatters with paint.
The new Birch Trees are so beautiful and detailed, i die cut them out of white to make them pop on the backgorund and cause i wanted a real birch vibe for my scene, but u can easly cut them out of brownish colors to create so many more different scenes.






































I stamped/ colored/ die cuts all the images ( I also stamped some of them multiple times!) and i added a white stripe at the bottom of my background for my critters to stand on.
Then i composed my scene as u see it and glued down all the elements with liquid glue and foam adhesive. I love when my projects are really built up in dimension and that's why i used lots of foam tape and i kept my frame without the glass on the front ( as u'll se in the next photo). U can easily adhered them with liquid glue/ tape glue only and have a flat surface to stack the glass on and protect your artwork! 






































Finally i added some little details with a white gel pen to finish my project.
I'm really so happy about this and also my mum loves it, it brings so much joy :)

On to the next one.. for my second project i created a card + decorated envelope.. here's it !






































The real star of the show here is the new Blowing Leaves Background stamp, it's full of leaves, acorns and little dots that create a beautiful patterned paper effect on cardstock.
I stamped my envelope and the new Gallery Frame 3 with it in memento black ink and then i colored every little images. It can be a little time consuming but the effect it's so pretty! 






































The little critters in the center are from the Autumn Gatherings set as the sentiment. Can we talk about that sentiment? I love this font soo much, wish i could write like that in real life at first take! ihih! :)






































This card is super simple, i colored a little bit the front of a white note card, then i glued down all the elements with foam tape and stamped the sentiment. That's easy but so cute!

Hope u like these projects as much as i do, please leave a comment down below if u have any questions or just leave me some love :)
