Bunnies, Bunnies, Everywhere!

  Hi there crafty friends.   Heather here sharing a few fun cards that I created with goodies from the Butterfly Reflections Ink Shop ! If you're like me, you've always got a full cart just waiting in the wings of the shop heehee!!  Today we're not talking about "NEW" items though!  I'm pulling out a few "oldies but goodies" from my stash today and making them the stars of the show!  Here is a look at my cards: I was super inspired to create these cards after seeing one of my friend Megan's most recent cards over on Instagram.  If you don't yet follow her, you totally should!  She's great!  Now, if you follow me on Insta , you know that I'm currently OBSESSED with Mama Elephant's Little Signage Agenda Stamp Set !!  I've wanted it for so long!!  It was released quite a while ago as a freebie if you purchased a certain amount from their shop - which, alas, means that I did not get it :(.   I prefer to buy from shops like Butte

Thanks a lot!

Hey crafty friends! It's Julia here and I want to share this hospital thank you card with you! Since my dad was really  grateful  for the amazing care of the hospital staff during his stay, he asked me to make them a thank you card - and I  -  of course - was happy to oblige! I used the super cute Village Heroes stamp set by Lawn Fawn for this one!  First I stamped my images from Village Heroes Happy Village , Open Me , Get Well Before 'n' Afters and Butterfly Kisses onto Transotype Perfect Coloring paper and colored them in using Copic Markers .   I die cut the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Backdrop Portrait as well as the Stitched Cloud Backdrop Portrait out of bristol smooth cardstock. After that I ink blended Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Distress Ink onto the background and Cracked Pistachio, Evergreen Bough and Pine Needles onto the hills.   For the sentiment I die cut the Scripty Thanks die twice out of white cardstock and I ink blended one of them with Abandon

Bugs and Kisses Birthday Card

Hi Everyone, it's Peggy here with a sweet birthday card with some cute bugs! Let me tell you how I made this card! I recently treated myself to the Lawn Fawn reveal wheel and I'm having such a blast with it! It is one of the more easy interactive cards in the LF collection and once you get the hang of it, you'll never stop making reveal wheel cards :) I started by cutting my papers to size and used Lawn Fawn Hello Sunshine Remix and Let it Shine paper collections. Next I stamped out my images from A Bug Deal in Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink and colored them with my copics. I cut out the cover plate of the reveal wheel set from Hello Sunshine Remix, the spinning piece from some white cardstock and the little arrow out of Lawn Fawn Raspberry Cardstock . I used the reveal wheel templates to stamp the texts from Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel Sentiments. I put my card together using a small brad and a bunch of foam dots. Just be sure to keep the foam free of the spinning parts. Lastly I a

To Someone Sweet with Mama Elephant stamps by Beata

Hi friends! Beata June here and I'm back to share this card full of sweet treats I made using Mama Elephant stamps! This is so me right now wanting to eat all the sweets! 😆 This card features the Mama Elephant Milkshake stamp set  ( coordinating die available here ),  Boba Tea stamp set  ( coordinating die available here ), and the Donut Treats stamp set ( coordinating die available here ). To start off, I stamped off all of the sweet treats and cute critters from the  Milkshake,   Boba Tea  and  Donut Treats  stamp sets on white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink using my Mini Misti stamping tool .  Then I colored my stamped images with Copic markers . I colored more images than I could fit on my card because all of the images from these stamp sets are so darn cute I wanted to color them all! 💛 Next, I cut out a stitched background frame from white cardstock using a Mama Elephant die, picked the colored images I wanted to use for my card, and added some blue bubbles for m

Out of this World Birthday

 Hi all! It's Cassie here, from Creatively Cass, and I'm back to share a card I made for the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog. I went with a one layer galaxy card for today's post. Here's the finished product!  I started by stamping out my images from the Out of This World stamp set by Lawn Fawn. I used masking tape to get the effect of the overlapping balloons for the little astronaut. Then, with those same masks, I used Distress Oxide ink colors Seedless Preserves, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot to create a galaxy background.  I then colored the images in with my Copic markers and added strings to all the balloons with a Copic multiliner marker. Obviously, I needed some stars so I used some white paint to splatter over the background. After everything had dried I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment at the bottom of the card. My favorite final touch is to add white gel pen accents to each of the little images. I also decorated the envelope to match! And that'

You're Unfroggettable

  Hello! For my card today I used the adorable Don't Worry Be Hoppy stamp set and die set by Lawn Fawn. This set is so versatile and has tons of fun sentiments, and can be used to make the CUTEST bookmarks or tags! Fun! I used a circle die to cut a hole in the front of the card. The real party on this card is inside.... EEk! Just look at his little frog bootie hanging inside! :) So cute! I made the water and sunset with circle masking and Distress Oxide Inks. Super quick and easy. The little frog and flies are from Say What Spring Critters.  I hope YOU have a hoppy day!  Nikki
