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.��������������…

From All of Us!

Hey, crafty peeps!!  Laurie here, back as a guest on the blog :).  I know today is Father's Day but I'm actually sharing a birthday card. I had so much fun making this card for my husband.  We have a family of cats, two indoors and eight outdoors so this was just perfect!


The All of Us Stamp Set from Avery Elle is beyond cute. And I admit I bought it for the cats! I used a watercolour set that includes an array of vintage shades and coloured the cats.  The little arms holding the signs kill me. They are hilarious!  I stamped the "happy birthday" and "from all of us" on the signs then used the co-ordinating dies to cut everything out.

To jazz things up, I stamped the Confetti Background Stamp from The Stamp Market onto a white card panel.  And because I couldn't stop there, I used the new Just Stitching Double Rectangles dies from Lawn Fawn.  If you've been on the fence about this set of dies, I highly recommend them. I just know I'm going to be …

"Lovely" 12x12 Scrapbook layout // Cocoa Vanilla Studio Happiness Collection

Hey friends...Heather here..its been a minute since I've posted, but I am back and sharing a layout created with one of my favorite collection lately....Cocoa Vanilla Studios "Happiness Collection.  I love this collection...its bright rainbow colors, gorgeous clear stickers, and the oh so pretty embellishments! I started with a white piece of white cardstock as my background and cut a bunch of "spring florals" on my silhouette from Just Nick Studio also from white cardstock. I backed the flower die cuts with patterned papers from the 6x8 paper pad.  Then, for a little sparkle and shine, I embossed the tips of the flowers with WOW sparkle silver embossing powder using Versamark embossing ink. I adhered the flowers vertically just in the centers to keep the petals lifted and popped a few of them up with pop dots.  After matting my photo with a couple of patterned papers, I added stickers from the cardstock stickers and the clear stickers around my photo and layered …

Quick and Easy Father's Day Card

Hey there friends! Britney here with a quick and easy Father’s Day card. This is a great card to make if you need a last minute Father’s Day card. I love the new release from Lawn Fawn and this card features several items from the new release. Unlike the majority of my cards, this is more stamp heavy vs. my normal scene card. I used the new Speech Bubble Backdrop die to cut panels from Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow Scallops Paper. I also cut panels from heavy white cardstock for added support since the top panel is just paper.  I placed my panel in my Misti and laid out the words from the Critter Chatter: Pets stamp set. I stamped in Jalapeño ink and then in Forget-Me-Not on a separate panel. I repositioned my stamps and repeated stamping in those colors. I continued doing this until all of the speech bubbles were full. I stamped the little dog and speech bubble from the Say What? Pets stamp set. I stamped the dog in Gina K Amalgam Inkand colored it with my Copics. I highlighted with my white …

Wedding Wishes with Chibitronics

Hello everyone! It's Ashley with a super special card for you today. My little brother is getting married this weekend so I wanted to do something extra amazing for the happy couple. I decided to try my first light up card, and I think it turned out pretty well!

The bride is originally from Alaska and that is where they are getting married so I decided to pay a bit of homage to that with the polar bears and Northern Lights-ish background. I started by making masks using Lawn Fawn Grassy Border and Hello Bluebird Pond Builder and blended the grass using various green dye inks including Lawn Fawn Cilantro. I created the galaxy background with Distress Oxides in Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers, and Chipped Sapphire. I flicked some watered down white acrylic paint on top for stars and die cut using the largest rectangle in Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables. I stamped the constellations from Lawn Fawn Upon a Star with VersaMar…
