Hello Bluebird | July 2023 Release Preview – Day 2 + GIVEAWAY

July 9, 2023

Hello friends! It’s the second day of previews for the Hello Bluebird July 2023 Release! I have two cards to share with you featuring two different stamp sets that will be released this coming Monday, July 10th at 7PM MST.

For my first project, I made a slimline box card that measures 8.5″ x 3.75″ when folded flat. This fits perfectly into a #10 business sized envelope for mailing.

My card features the new Vegetable Garden Stamp Set. I love how sweet these images are! All of my images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and colored with Copic Markers. I then used the coordinating Vegetable Garden Die Set to cut them out.

My second project features the new Vegetable Market Stamp Set. I combined this set with the previously released Oak Tree Scene Die Set. To create my background, I die cut my Oak Tree Scene from some Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and then blended each piece with some Distress Oxide Inks for added shading and dimension. If you don’t care for ink blending, you can simply use colored card stock or color the pieces with some other coloring medium of your choice.

Distress Inks/Oxide Inks Used:

  • Grass and Tree: Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Inks
  • Sky: Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink
  • Tree Trunk: Gathered Twigs and Ground Espresso Distress Ink


Make sure to leave a comment on each day of the Hello Bluebird Release Preview Days for a chance to win a $50 Hello Bluebird Gift Certificate! Comments must be left by Monday, July 10th at 4PM MST and winners will be announced on the Hello Bluebird blog on Monday, July 10th by 5PM MST.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Stay tuned for one more preview days of Hello Bluebird upcoming products!

Wishing you all a lovely day!
