Hello Bluebird / More Jungle Littles

Jungle Littles2 

Hello, welcome to Day 4 of the Hello Bluebird June release!  
The release includes 6 new stamp sets and coordinating dies along with 4 stand alone dies.  The entire new release will be available at 7pm MST tonight June 26th!


These More Jungle Littles are adorable when paired with the previously released Tropical Foliage Dies.

I ink blended a panel of cardstock using Wild Honey, Ripe Persimmon, and Fired Brick Distress Inks.  Using a standard circle die, a circle was cut from this ink blended panel.  The new Wild About You Die was cut out of black cardstock and layered over the ink blended circle.  A few foliage leaves were die cut from colors of green cardstock and tucked into the corners of the sentiment.  The rhino and toucan were Copic colored, die cut using coordinating dies, and added with foam adhesive.

Hello, welcome to Day 3 of the Hello Bluebird June release!  The release includes 6 new stamp sets and coordinating dies along with 4 stand alone dies.  


I created a fun little scene using the new Gallery Frame #4 and some ink blending.  The notecard was masked off using painters tape.  The floral cascades were positioned in either corner with foam adhesive.  The sentiment was stamped in the upper right box.....the perfect space for a sentiment!  My mouse was Copic colored, hand trimmed, and added with foam adhesive.

Hello Bluebird / Seaside Girls

Seaside Girls2 

Hello, welcome to Day 2 of the Hello Bluebird June release!  The release includes 6 new stamp sets and coordinating dies along with 4 stand alone dies.  

Seaside Girls has a bit of nostalgia doesn't it?  For me, it's remembering my daughter on the beach the first time.  Priceless.

There is a new scene die this month with a beach/water theme.  I die cut the scene out of white cardstock and ink blended the beach with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and the waves out of Tumbled Glass Distress Ink but also adding in some of the details from the stamp set.  Clouds were blended in with a cloud stencil.  Finally my Copic colored images were added with foam adhesive to finish my beachy scene!

Hello Bluebird / Strawberry Jam

Strawberry Jam

Hello and welcome to the much anticipated Hello Bluebird June release!  I have a lot to share over the next few days for these preview days.  So many cute new sets!


Strawberry Jam is just an adorable new set releasing this coming week.  I added a bit of Spun Sugar Distress Ink for the light background and framed my scene with a new die announced later this week.  All my images were Copic colored and using the coordinating dies, were all die cut.  A few clear droplets were added as a final touch.

Ellen Hutson & Hero Arts Blog Hop

Hello2 

Hello and Welcome to a special hop with Hero Arts and Ellen Hutson!  
You will see so many fresh ideas using Hero Arts stamps.  Remember though, you can shop at either Hero Arts or Ellen Hutson to get your Hero Arts goodies!



*****************************************

I love color layering stamps and Hero Arts has so many fabulous ones.  I used the Color Layering For You Flowers Bundle which includes the ink, dies, and stamps.  I also used some other Hero Arts inks for the other colors of blooms.

Once all the blooms were stamped and die cut, they were layered onto a trimmed rounded panel that was ink blended with Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink in just two corners.  I love how this gives some shading but also leaves white space!  For the sentiment, I used the Hello Stamp & Cut bundle.  Hero Arts has many of these small sentiment sets that should be staples in your crafting!  To give that finishing touch, a few small droplets were added.

You can win one of three $25 gift certificates to the Ellen Hutson shop! Winners will be drawn from commenters along the blog hop so make sure to comment at each stop before Friday, June 28th at 11:59pm PST. Winners will be notified by email.

Reverse Confetti / Stock Your Stash (Hello/Just Because)

Hello! I'm here with a card for the current Stock Your Stash Challenge!  
Each month is a new theme and this month is all about HELLO/JUST BECAUSE!  


I wanted to create something spring like with bright florals.  Floral Gem has the perfect mix of greenery and florals.  

June SYS2 

I started with stamping the main floral gem image and highlighting the gem "lines" with Copic BG0000.  The supporting images were all black heat embossed onto Bristol Smooth cardstock so I could color using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  All the images were die cut and added back onto the Floral Gem image.  

The Floral Gem image was layered onto a white on white Big Stripes Cover Panel Confetti Cuts.  A black die cut hello from Thanks & Hello Word Duos Confetti Cuts was layered with a tiny sentiment from So Many Sentiments onto a white sentiment strip.  To embellish, a few clear gems were added.
