Holiday Card Series w/ Hello Bluebird - All Is Calm, All Is Bright

mardi 20 octobre 2020

Hello there,

I'm so glad to be back for Hello Bluebird with a winter wonderland slimline card.

I started by cutting my background elements out of Strathmore bristol wmooth cardstock: a panel measuring 8-1/8 x 3,5" and also some hill borders that I cut using the Ocean Waves Scene Horizontal die. And the distress inks I used to create my winter sky are tumbled glass, shaded lilac and wilted violet.

Next I splattered water on the paper to create texture, I also made the sky super shiny using liquid stardust by Lawn fawn all over the panel, and then, to bring contrast to the sky I mixed some wilted violet, tumbled glass and chipped sapphire distress inks with water and used a thin brush to create tiny drops on my paper.

For the hills, I wanted to keep them pretty simple so I just applied a tiny bit of tumbled glass and blueprint sketch distress inks on the top edge of each element.

Once everything was dry, I assembled the borders on my sky panel, starting from the bottom and using liquid glue.

Next I stamped and cut my images from Snowball Fight, Frosty Littles and Christmas is coming. And like always I used my alcohol markers to color everything.

When the coloring was done, I attached the trees and the house on the background using foam squares, and before sticking the remaining images, I wanted to bring more sparkles to the trees so I started by applying liquid glue on those images and next I sprinkled fine glitter on the glue.

And then I attached the remaining critters using foam squares again. Finally I placed my panel in my misti tool and stamped my sentiment "All is calm, all is bright" from Quiet Christmas using black versafine ink.

  1. Hello Marine:
    Can you please help me? I've been trying to reach anyone at Hello Bluebird. I had originally spoken with Alice. But now nobody is emailing me back, and nobody is responding when I fill out the Contact Us form on the Hello Bluebird website. I need to speak with someone...anyone. I would really appreciate your help.
