Hello Bluebird | August 2022 Release – It’s “Cake Time”!

August 10, 2022

Hello friends! I have two cards to share with you today featuring some brand new items from the upcoming Hello Bluebird release!

For my first project, I created a birthday A2 sized box card showcasing the new “Cake Time” clear stamps set. I combined this set with the new Birthday Script sentiment set, which I used to stamp the sentiment on the front of my card.

I stamped all of my images onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I then used the coordinating “Cake Time” Die Set to cut them out. I also used the Grassy Knoll Die Set to add some grass pieces to the inside of my card. I die cut them from some light green card stock and then lightly blended the tips of them with some Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink for some added contrast.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Pig: E0000, E000, E00, E11, E13
  • Bunnies: 0, C00, C1, C3
  • Raccoon: W00, W1, W3, W5, W7
  • Greens: G0000, G00, BG34, BG18
  • Pinks: RV00, RV52, RV55
  • Yellows: Y13, Y15, V12
  • Reds: R01, R21, R43
  • Blues: B60, B63, B66

My second card also features the “Cake Time” and “Birthday Script” Stamp Sets. This time, I also used the new Nesting Deckle A2 Die Set for some amazing texture and design to frame my images. I layered some pink and white card stock that I had die cut with the Deckle Dies onto a pink A2 card base. For my center piece, I lightly blended some Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide Ink for my sky and some Bundled Sage Distress Oxide Ink for my grass.

I once again colored my images with Copic Markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I added my images to the front of my card with some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape for a pop of dimension.

** The new Hello Bluebird release will go live on Thursday, August 11th at 7PM MST! **

I hope you enjoyed my cards today! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by! If you liked these cards and want some more crafty inspiration, please feel free to check out my INSTAGRAM feed!

    Even before I look to see whose account is next in my feed, I always know when it’s a Rachel design. Your cards have a distinct look to them and they always make me smile. These are no exception. Congrats on the guest designer spot! I love these happy designs. 🙂

    Hey there … love seeing you at Hello Bluebird! This box card is really cute. Right up my alley. The characters have such amazing faces. Love the colors too. The Deckled frame looks so good. I have some of those frames. Summer is going strong and I have been in my garden everyday. Lots of stuff coming this week. Green beans, zucchini and some tomatoes already. Strawberries and blueberries. So many things, not much time for crafting….

      That’s great that you have so much produce from your garden! I need to do more work with mine. We currently have some onions and peppers that have been growing really well (but we want to do a lot more). Hope you’re having a lovely day, my friend! ❤️

    Hello, I'm Rachel! Thanks so much for dropping by and welcome to my blog! I love creating and am excited to share with you my love for card making and paper crafting.
