Handmade Cards, Hello Bluebird DT

Hello Bluebird Oh Nuts

It’s Day 2 of the Hello Bluebird Design Team shares, featuring the fabulous September release.

Today I’m showcasing the new Oh Nuts! stamp set, which is a happy set with lots of cute squirrels and fun sentiments.

I’m using another fabulous background stamp on my card today. It’s called Old Oak and is perfect for the fall sets in the September release. I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder onto kraft card.

I added a soft blend of distress oxide inks, in tumbled glass and shabby shutters, to a narrow panel of white card. I adhered this to the oak embossed background, then stamped a sentiment from the set.

I stamped and copic coloured some images from the Oh Nuts! stamp set, then die cut them with the coordinating dies. For the tree branch, I’d recommend die cutting first then stamping, to ensure it stamps correctly.

I love that there is a little hand stamp and coordinating die for the squirrel hanging from the tree. It’s such a well thought out addition to the set.

Join me tomorrow for a look at another new set from the September 2019 release, which is available to buy in store now.

    1. Thank you Franziska 😊
      For the squirrels, I used (darkest to lightest) E37, Y27, Y24, E31, E30.
      I only used a little of the darkest brown in the shadow areas. I used the lightest browns just on the belly and face. The YR colours help give the red look.
