Have a SOUPer Birthday - PHO Real!

Morning and Happy Tuesday crafty friends!! Heather here to share some PUNtastic cards with you using Avery Elle goodies that Vanessa has stocked in the Butterfly Reflections, Ink. Shop RIGHT NOW!! I gotta tell ya, I love a good punny sentiment - I also happen to also LOVE Pho & Ramen - they are totally my jam! This Avery Elle Phonomenal Stamp Set is just that - PHOnomenal!!!! Every sentiment is amazing and I love that there are also Elle-Ments (aka dies) for each and every little stamp in this set! SO FUN! Today I created another card set to share with ya! I love making cards so much that a lot of times I work on a set at a time as opposed to a single card! I stamped the images and colored them using Copic Markers - one of the fun things I did was stamp the little flower images included in the stamp set onto the bowl using a bit of masking paper so that I didn't go out of the lines or onto the rim of the bowl ;). This adds a nice bit of interest in my opinion! I als…

Hooray

 Hello friend! Gladys here and today I'm sharing this sweet birthday card.   For this card I used the Moose and Friends stamp set from Hello Bluebird. This set is full of cute critters and accessories to create the perfect party theme cards. We're going to celebrate Mr. Moose's birthday and have a couple of his friends join him on this special occasion.
To frame my scene I cut white card stock using hug it out and then I decided to cut it out of craft card stock as well. For added interest I used stitched woodgrain backdrop on the craft card stock. On the white card stock I created the background using cloud and grassy edges stencils. I used distress oxide in broken china for the clouds and mowed lawn for the grass. All the images were colored with copic markers and cut out using it's coordinating dies. I arranged all the images as shown using foam tape for dimension.
Mr. Moose's friends sure know how to throw a party and make their friend feel very special.

MFT Die-namic Cuties

Hey friends!!! Britney here with a fun birthday card series featuring My Favorite Things products. Here’s another set very unlike my normal style of scene card, but I couldn’t resist these adorable critters. I had to have the whole set. I like to start with making my backgrounds first and build from there. I inked up a panel of Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide  ink. I had a bit heavier hand at the bottom and went lighter towards the top. I used the MFT Ray of Light Stencil  and inked the panel up again with Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide  ink.  After everything thing was dry, I used the next largest Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Frame  and cut a frame directly out of my panel. I also cut three additional frames from plain white cardstock to stack together to give my frame some dimension. I cut all my animals (MFT Friendly Fox, Little Piggy, Cottontail CutieRacoon Cutie, and Puppy Love) from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb cardstock.  I was channeling…

Meow-y Good Day

Hello everyone! It's Ashley with a card showcasing a stamp from a new company - Evelin T. Designs! I knew I needed this Sneaky Kitties stamp as soon as I saw the preview! Look how cute they are!!


I started by stamping the Sneaky Kitties with my MISTI and Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink onto Bristol smooth cardstock, then I colored the image with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I used the large Polaroid die from Hello Bluebird Photo Stack to cut out the part of the image I wanted on my card. I cut that same die out of white cardstock and white foam and glued them together for some dimension on the frame. I made the background by die cutting white cardstock with the Pretty Pink Posh Lattice Background and attaching it to Lawn Fawn Fog cardstock.


After attaching my Polaroid pieces, I used the "smile" word die from Hello Bluebird Photo Stack on some Lawn Fawn Sage Leaf cardstock and attached it to the bottom of the photo frame with my Zig glue pen. I wanted to use the "H…

Welcome

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Julianne here bringing you some welcome/thank you cards. I created these cards using some older Altenew products and giving them new life. I love digging into my older stamps and creating something new with them.
The stamps I decided on using where the Altenew Neighborhood Stamp Set as well as the Altenew Leafy Wreath Die. I started out by using the Leafty Wreath Die to die cut a variety of different card stocks (two shades of green, vellum, and some gold glitter card stock). I wanted my wreaths to look really full, depending on the look you are going for you could die cut less or even more. The trick to making the wreath look really full is adhering it different each time, making sure that you are moving the leaves around so that they are in different places.
Once I had all the wreaths ready to go it was time to start working on my background, cutting down some white card stock just under an A2 size. I figured out where I wanted my wreath to be on the car…

Are you YETI for your birthday?!?

Hi crafters, Heather here. Are you even YETI for the card I'm sharing today?!? I don't know if you are but here we go! I just totally fell in LOVE with the Hello Sweeutms Yeti Set Go stamps and dies and have been itching to create a slimline card using them for some time! I just LOVE how the dies cut out the little hands so that they can hold the cute little presents/hearts from the stamp set! I am always super inspired by Davina's slimline cards and have been playing with them more and more lately! You can really build a scene so well with a longer card base (the card base is cut to 8x4 and scored it at 4"). This type of card will fit perfectly into a #10 envelope! Anywho, I stamped these adorable images and used Copics to color them - HEY, did you guys know that Vanessa has Copics in the Butterfly Reflections, Ink. Shop?? She totally does and at $5.77 each - they're a fabulous price!! After coloring the images, I built a fun scene for …

Greeting Farm & June Mood Board

Hey there crafty friends, Davina here for Butterfly Reflections Ink sharing a shiny gold embossed card using the current June Mood/Color board.  I wanted to do something a little different than my normal, and feel like I stepped out of my typical creative style enough to experiment, but still be recognizable.  This is the first card I have made in a very long time that I did not use my Copic markers, and that I also used all embossing with no black ink.
I used an adorable newer stamp set called With Love by The Greeting Farm that I picked up from the Butterfly Reflections Ink website along with the Matching dies. I also used their super cute Hi Hello script die. I began my project by inkblending my background with several Ranger Distress Oxide Inks using the Pickett Fence Life Changing Bender Brushes onto Bristol smooth card stock. I used the colors worn lipstick, squeezed lemonade, and broken china for my background and splattered with clean water and white opaque ink.��������������…
