Sending Hugs...

Hey there!

Well, we have finally made it to release day at Hello Bluebird and all of the new stamps and dies will be available for purchase tonight at 7pm MST. In the meantime we still have the final sneak peeks to share with you before the stamps go live with one last chance to win a gift certificate to the HB store by visiting the Hello Bluebird blog. But be quick because all of the winners will be announced at 5pm MST. 

Today I've created a tall slimline card using the Gallery Frame #5 die because the super cute Carried Away set comes with six adorable critters all hanging from various shaped balloons and I really wanted to get as many of them on a card as I could. The stamp set also includes three sentiments, a couple clouds and a flying bird, who also made it into this bright and cheery scene. I stamped all of the little critters first, colored them using Copic markers and then masked them off so I could use some stencils on the background with my Copic airbrush system to create a dreamy looking sky. Not all of the animals can be seen completely but that was an intentional choice since I wanted it to look like the are all floating up with some just entering the scene and others leaving it. Rather than stamp on a sentiment, I used the new Sending Hugs die right across the center of the card and added some matching sequins for a bit of sparkle and shine.  :)

Thanks so much for joining me each day of these previews and I hope you have fun shopping tonight!
