Hello Bluebird New Release {You Make Me Smile}

Hello friends! I'm beyond thrilled to be a guest designer for Hello Bluebird this month celebrating their fabulous new release! I'll be sharing projects for the next three days and then a few more over the next month! I ABSOLUTELY love Hello Bluebird and was so happy when my Mom gave me the Fairy Garden Stamp set a few years ago for my birthday. You can see my Hello Bluebird creations HERE that I've made over the years. As you can see, I don't have that many so I am THRILLED to be guest designing this month so I can use the entire new release! Yay!

My card for today uses the Summer Woods Scene Die and the new Pig Out stamp set! What I love in particular about this new set is that it has more than just pig images. I love the sweet bunnies and duck! To begin this card, I die cut the entire Summer Woods Scene out of white cardstock and then used Distress Oxide inks to color the trees, bushes, and grass. I inked up an 8 1/2 by 3 1/2 inch panel of white cardstock using Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink to create the sky. Once that was done, I added the trees, bushes, etc. back onto the panel using liquid glue and foam squares.  I spritzed the entire panel with water to get the ink to oxidize and give the card added detail.

I colored all of the critters and accessories using an assortment of alcohol markers and added a bit of white gel pen details to the pigs to make them appear shiny. I used the coordinating Pig Out die set to cut out all of the critters and accessories that I used in this scene.

I added them to the panel using foam squares and liquid glue. Now, I didn't plan ahead of time where I would be putting my sentiment, but rather left it until the end. I decided I wanted to do a direct to paper sentiment in the hollow of the trees. I used one of my MISTIs with broken hinges, which was a MAJOR mistake because I ended up double stamping the sentiment slightly off-set. I wanted to CRY. After my initial shock of thinking I ruined the entire card and trying to add a circle sentiment, I got my wits about me and decided it would be easy enough just to re-cut that one panel, re-do the inking, stamp the sentiment and lay it back in using liquid glue! Crisis averted! I thought I had ruined the entire thing, but you can't tell AT ALL!

It was so fun to dust off my alcohol markers and do some coloring for this sweet summer/spring scene! I'm head-over-heels in love with this release! I can't wait to share what I have made, so make sure to join me again tomorrow for day 2 of the countdown! Thanks for fluttering by!

I’m just in awe of designers who create ‘ storybook’ scenes like your’s. So much to look at enjoy and your sentiment is perfect. It made me smile. Speaking of sentiments, I can only imagine how you felt when your sentiment wasn’t right. I think every card maker has had that sinking feeling. Just when I think I’ve learned from my mistakes, I make a big one. I’ve truly enjoyed your Bluebird posts! 🐥😊❤️

I am Alecia Maldonado used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes...i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (Dr Mandaker); he just got he just got his website (holyaraminta.com), has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helps
for free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn't mind me advertising his contact on the internet but I'm sure any help/ extra work will benefit him.contact him as witchhealing@outlook.com He travel sometimes.i cant give out his number cos he told me he don’t want to be disturbed by many people across the world..he said his email is okay and he’ will replied to any emails asap,love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,Trouble in marriage,HIV AIDS,Barrenness(need a child),goodLuck voodoo,it's all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting something
