Hello Bluebird North Pole Littles

I love the new North Pole Littles stamp set from Hello Bluebird. There’s a fantastic choice of images in this set, perfect for creating a Christmas scene.

I have a little tip too: the reindeer in this set are the same size as the reindeer in the Yeti or Not stamp set! Even more possibilities for mixing sets together to make different designs.

For this card, I began by creating my own masks using the Hill & Dale die set. On a piece of white card, I inked distress oxides in Seedless Preserves and Faded Jeans, using the masks to create a sky area. I added some Shaded Lilac distress oxide, using the masks again, to make hills of snow.

With a white pigment ink, I added snow to the scene with the Falling Snow Background stamp. This wasn’t as bright white as I wanted, so I stamped the background with an embossing ink, the embossed them with WOW Diamond White embossing powder.

I used a stitched rectangle die from Heffy Doodle, to cut out a rectangle in the middle of the panel. I partially stamped a greeting from the North Pole Littles stamp set, embossing it with WOW Metallic Silver embossing powder.

I adhered the rectangle frame onto a card base with liquid glue, then added the panel in the middle with foam tape. This gives a little dimension and draws the eye to the scene in the centre.

To complete the sentiment, I die cut from white glitter card the Merry script from the Christmas Words die set.

Finally, I added lots of images from the North Pole Littles stamp set, which I coloured with copics. I love this sweet and happy Christmas scene.
