Hello Bluebird | October Release – Day 3 + GIVEAWAY

October 23, 2022

Hello friends! The Hello Bluebird October Release goes live tonight, 10/23/22, at 7pm MST! I have one more project to share with you before the release that features the new “Snowman Hugs” Stamp Set.

I created another one layer card using some more Gina K Designs Masking Magic Sheets. This one was a lot easier than the one that I created yesterday, because it is only one image and I only needed to fussy cut one mask. I stamped my images onto a stitched piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then one more time onto a piece of masking paper. I fussy cut the image from the masking paper and covered my identical image on my card stock.

I then blended a small area of Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Ink for my background and stamped some snowflakes with some teal ink. I then splattered some “snow” using diluted white paint and a paint brush that I had lightly tapped over my card to allow the white paint to messily fall onto my background.

Once dry, I then removed my masking piece and colored my images with Copic Markers. Lastly, I stamped my sentiment and then layered my card front onto a top-folding white, A2 card base.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Squirrel: W1, W3, W5
  • Bunny: W00, W1, W3
  • Snowman: 0, C00, C1, C3
  • Reds: R14, R35, R39, R89
  • Teals: G000, BG11, BG34, BG18

    What a sweet image! It’s blended and colored beautifully. I like the snowflakes you added, too. Terrific work!

      Thank you so very much, sweet Jeanne! I always appreciate your kind words! 🤗

    This slouchy hat on the snowman is so perfect. The snow never allows a hat to stay standing tall. Love your coloring, as always. Hello Bluebird is definitely a great fit for you! TFS
