Pumpkin Spice Bunny Card - Hello Bluebird Previews Day 1

Hey friends, woohoo! Today I'm so excited to bring you Day 1 of Previews for the brand new Hello Bluebird Fall/Halloween Release! Today and tomorrow we will be showcasing some of the new products before it all goes live on Friday September 29th at 7pm MST (9pm EST). My card features the adorable Peek-A-Boo stamp set, which I absolutely adore. I colored the images with Copic markers and trimmed them out with their matching dies.

For the background, I trimmed down a piece of Bristol with the Nesting Deckle A2 dies and blended on Distress Oxide Inks in Kitsch Flamingo, Carved Pumpkin, and Bundled Sage. Then I stamped my sentiment at the bottom and adhered my images. For a full list of supplies, see the description box below the video on YouTube.

I'll be back tomorrow with another sneak peek, plus an overview of the entire release, so be sure to stop by then.

Art Journal with Me #21 - Go Where the Heart Takes You

Hey friends, today I'm excited to bring you my September Art Journal with Me video with a bookish theme that I adore! Last weekend was my birthday and I spent the day in Pittsburgh visiting the Carnegie Main Branch Library plus six different bookstores and it was the best! So this month's spread is definitely inspired by that. I started out in my favorite Square Watercolor Journal and pulled in patterned paper from the Stamperia Vintage Library collection.

I love lots of layers, so I also included Washi Tape TicketsVintage Postage Stamp Stickers, and even Vintage Book Pages from Alice in Wonderland. And for my personal item, I tore the whale logo from a paper bag from one of the book stores, and also included the number 9, for the ninth month, which is when my birthday falls. I also created a little door that opens and leads into a story world, which do by reading every single day.

If you'd like too see how this month's spread came together, click below or find it here on YouTube. I also invite you to craft along with me, or grab a snack and just hang out. Either way, I hope you enjoy the video! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hay Ride Birthday Card - Lawn Fawnatics #157

Hey friends, or should I say Hay friends? Today I'm so happy to bring you our newest Lawn Fawnatics Challenge, Awesome Autumn! Bring on all the cozy cards! For my card, I was itching to ink up the new Lawn Fawn Hay There, Hayrides and create a fun scene at the pumpkin farm. I stamped out additional images from Hay ThereHappy HarvestHappy Village, and Jump for Joy, colored them with Copic markers, and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

To build my background, I started with a Mermaid card base and stamped my sentiment at the top in Blue Jay Ink. Then I layered on Stitched Hillside Borders in Noble Fir and Cilantro Cardstock and a Simple Stitched Hillside Border of Kraft Cardstock for my field. Then I adhered my images with liquid glue.

Dandelion Wishes Card

Hey friends, today I've got a sweet and subtle fall card combining two adorable stamp sets, Mama Elephant's You Raise Me Up and Dandelion Wishes. I colored the images with Copic markers to match some patterned paper from the Echo Park Our Baby 6x6 pad. Even though it's technically a baby-themed pad, I think the colors work great for this seasonal transition between Summer and Fall.

For the background, I started with Bristol Smooth Surface Cardstock, which I trimmed down with the Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables and Mushroom Border. Then I watercolored them with Distress Oxides, using a combination of Saltwater Taffy and Antique Linen for the sky and Bundled Sage and Rustic Wilderness for the grass. I popped that up with foam tape over the patterned papers, which I layered on a Speckled Eggshell card base. And as always, I finished with a bit of Stardust Stickles.

I really hope you enjoy this one! I think it turned out so sweet and could work for a variety of occasions from birthday to best wishes for any new venture. Click below or watch it here on YouTube. If you do like it, please don't forget to subscribe! Lots more fall content is on its way. Have a great day!
