Have a Hoppy Day!

Hi friends! Tammy here with a fun and bright Spring card, featuring Lawn Fawn...old and new. I love how versatile Lawn Fawn's sets are, allowing me to really have fun mixing and matching sets to create a unique scene!

To begin, I cut a rectangle from the new Dandy Day Petite Paper Pad to use as my background.  Next, I cut a scalloped rectangle from white cardstock, and a stitched rectangle from Bristol Smooth cardstock. I inked my background with Worn Lipstick and Dried Marigold Distress Oxide's, splattered with a bit of clean water, and set aside to dry.

Next, I die cut all of my scene elements using the following dies:

Grassy Border Lawn Cuts (grassy border in front, inked with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn)
Grassy Hillside Borders Lawn Cuts
Swan Soiree Lawn Cuts (pond, inked with Peacock Feathers)
Meadow Backdrop: Portrait Lawn Cuts (clouds)

Next, I stamped, colored with Copic markers, and die cut with the following sets:

Hi Everyone!  Happy Sunday!  I'm sharing with you this card I created using color inspiration from the February mood board.

You’re Sweet with the BRI Moodboard by Popsiclesticks

Hello crafty friends. Davina here on the blog, and today I’m sharing another fun card using the fabulous February Moodboard. It is bright and full of cheery images and lots of cherries too! There is still plenty of time for you to head over to my earlier Color Challenge  Blog Post,  and enter your card using the inlinkz button, for your chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the Butterfly Reflections Ink online store. 

I’ve  been on a mission to use all the adorable mice sets from Waffle Flower Crafts that I purchased this fall and these ice cream eating cuties from the Sweet Ice Cream  set have been calling my name! I also find myself wanting to try different styles of cards lately, and I always love the mini scenes that story board dies create, and since I have rarely used mine, I thought it was time to get it out.

I started by cutting some rich red card stock with my Lawn Fawn Peekaboo Backdrop and cutting it again from some Bristol Smooth Cardstock. I used some bright lime green…

Sweet birthday treat, zero calories!

I had planned to use the Lawn Fawn stitched cupcake die for classroom valentines this year, but my kiddos had very specific designs in mind that didn't involve cupcakes!  So, I decided to make a SWEET birthday card for my card stash instead.

For this card, I started with watercolor paper cut to 4 x 5.25."  I used the Newton's Nook cascading stars stencil with Nuvo glimmer paste in pink opal to add stars to the top half of the background.  I let this background dry overnight, just to be safe!

I cut the cupcake pieces from Bristol smooth card stock and used distress oxide inks to add color:  milled lavender, wilted violet, vintage photo, picked raspberry and touches of squeezed lemonade and spiced marmalade.  I used VersaMark ink and some clear glitter embossing powder to add some sparkle to the icing and candle.  I like to see how other crafters do things, so I thought I'd show my set-up:  I use some tape runner to temporarily tack the pieces to a piece of scrap paper…

thank you fairy much!

Oh you guys, I am so excited about this one! I've wanted this fairy stamp set from Hello Bluebird Stamps for a long time and it is everything I dreamed! If these aren't the cutest little images ever, then l'm crazy. I just love them so much! And they put me in the mood for spring, which seems like forever away right now. 

Here are the stamps and dies used from the Butterfly Reflections, Ink Store:

I Lava You!

Hi everyone, Ashley here and I'm so happy to be sharing another card with you on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog!

Today, I played along with the Butterfly Reflections Ink February Mood Board. If you want to find out more about the mood board, check out this post on the BRI blog. I challenged myself to stay within the colour themes of the board (pinks, red and silver) while building a scene that wouldn't normally be built with those colours. I think the final result is pretty cool!

To make the background, I first blended some Distress Oxide Ink in Spun Sugar onto a panel of watercolour paper using the My Favorite Things Cloud Stencil. I then used more ink blending (Distress Oxide Ink in Festive Berries, Barn Door, Worn Lipstick and Iced Spruce) to make the puff of lava and smoke erupting from the volcano. I masked off everything but the lava puff, and splattered it with water, silver watercolour paint and red watercolour paint.

I added some sequins and heart embellishments i…

Wishing you a yummy day

Hello and welcome back to the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog. It's Silvia here today with an absolutely yummy card.

I started by stamping images from the Mama Elephant "Baked with love" stamp set with Memento black ink, I colored them with alcohol markers and I fussy cut them (if you prefer, you can use the coordinating dies ).
I die cut a4 1/4x5 1/2 white rectangles and I ink blended it with salty ocean and faded jeans Distress Oxide inks and I splattered with clean water, inks and some liquid stardust drops.

I then die cut two panel (one from white cardstock and one from Lawn Fawn kraft cardstock) using the "Peekaboo Backdrop" die. I used the white inside panels to create the grass, using Hello Bluebird "Grassy knoll" dies and shubby shutters and evergreen bough Distress Oxide inks.

I then assembled all my elements with liquid glue and I added some Trinity Stamps "Boiled Sugar-Jelly drop hearts" embellishments.

I'm really happy of how …
