Hello Bluebird Stamps - Valentines Challenge


Are you reading my blog today to learn how to  participate in the brand new Hello Bluebird Stamps design challenge for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate.   This challenge runs from today until 11.59pm MST on Valentine's Day with the winning entry (randomly selected) being announced on the Hello Bluebird Instagram on the 15th.  Please check out Hello Bluebird's Instagram and/or blog for entry rules.

My inspiration card uses the following Hello Bluebird products:-

I started by stamping the background and then die cutting with the deckle die to give the edge interest.  This was backed with craft foam and applied to an A2 white panel then glued to the card base.

I then die cut a panel using the oval nesting die and ink blended in pink to create a soft focal point.   This was backed with foam tape and applied to the woven background.

I stamped the image I was wanting to use from Life Is But A Dream and coloured it with the following Copic markers:-

Bear - E42, E41, E40, E50
Fox - E13, E11, E21, E00
Blush - R21, R20, R00
Pink - RV17, RV06, RV04, C3, C1
Red - R39
White - C3, C1, C0

I used a white gel pen to highlight some spots then die cut and adhered to the oval.

I used Jane Small Alpha to die cut red cardstock to give me a few X's and O's and arranged them in the water, at the end of their fishing lines and tucked a couple in their sweet canoe and I stamped the sentiment on a sentiment strip and applied that too.  I also added a few die cut deep pink hearts above their heads.  Something slightly different for Valentine's Day.

Have fun with your own entry and remember it is a randomly selected winner and so your skill level is of no consequence!
