Hello Bluebird Stamps | May Release Preview – Sweet Dreams

May 20, 2022

Hello friends! I am so excited to be guest designing for the newest Hello Bluebird release! You can head to their blog HERE for more product previews as well as amazing inspiration from the Hello Bluebird DT and other guest designers. 💗

My card today features the adorable new “Sweet Dreams” Stamp Set. All of my images were stamped onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and colored with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating “Sweet Dreams” Die Set to cut them out. I then set the aside so that I could work on my card background.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Bunny: 0, C00, C1, C3
  • Bear: E41, E42, E43, E44
  • Koala: W00, W1, W3, W5
  • Clouds: R000, R12, R24

For my background, I trimmed another piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and blended it with some Distress Oxide Inks (Wilted Violet, Tattered Rose, and Picked Raspberry). I splattered my background with some water before blotting it dry with a paper toweling then splattered it again with some diluted opaque white acrylic paint to resemble stars.

Once this piece was dry, I then diecut it with the new Starry Sky Die Set. I love how these stars are subtle but still pop from the card stock. I trimmed this piece down to 4″ x 5.25″, stamped my sentiment, and layered it on a top-folding white A2 (4.25″ x 5.5″) card base. Lastly, I used 3D foam adhesive tape to add my images for some added dimension.

This new release will be available tomorrow, May 21st, at 7PM MST.

      Thank you so much, my sweet friend! I figured that I hadn’t really used pinks/purples for a while, so I thought I’d give it a try lol. Hope you have a lovely weekend! 🤗
