Would you like some hunny?

Hey friends! Britney here with a card featuring Honey Bee Stamps Bill the Bear as one of my favorite Disney characters, Winnie the Pooh!!! My husband and I have been fans of Pooh since we were kids! The branch and bee hive are from the Birds and the Bees stamp set. I inked my background using Lawn Fawn Forget-Me-Notand Freshly Cut Grassinks and the MFT Mini Cloud and Drifts & Hills stencils. I stamped my images with Gina K Amalgam Jet Black Inkand colored my images with Copic Markers.  I finished off my images by adding some highlights with a white gel pen. I used a black glaze pen on the nose and a shimmer pen for the wings of the bees. I popped up the bear and honey pots using some foam tape and glued all the other images directly to the card base.  I added Glossy Accents to the honey drips for a little extra shine. I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I enjoyed making it. Have a wonderful day!

I Love Mew to Bits

Hello everyone! It's Ashley with my last post for you as a member of the Butterfly Reflections Ink Design Team. I can't believe my term is already up! I loved sharing with you all each week! For my last card, I made something a bit different than my usual style, but I think it turned out pretty cute!


I grabbed an adorable set from Hello Sweetums called Fuzzy Felines to build this playful scene. I started by stamping my images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloring with Copic markers. I usually make ink blended backgrounds on my cards, but I decided to pull out some patterned paper and push out of my comfort zone a bit. I used Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangles on the purple scallop from Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow Scallops and the light brown from Lawn Fawn Knock on Wood. The woodgrain looks like a nice hardwood floor for the kitties to play on! I used the straight stitch in Lawn Fawn Stitched Borders to add the stitched detail to the top edge of the floor.

Hi Crafty Friends, Julianne here sharing another summer inspired card. I have a friend who is celebrating her son's first birthday and is doing a whale theme inspired birthday party so I wanted to make a card with the same theme. I used both Friends with Fins and Gill Friends stamp set from My Favorite Things. 
I started out by stamping all the images I wanted to use on some Neenah smooth card stock with VersaFine Black ink and clear heat embossing them. I colored in all the images with copic markers. Once I was done I started working on the background; I originally thought I would do some ink blending but went with alcohol inks instead, I really like the shine that they give to the card. 
I used the following alcohol inks for the background: Stream, Pool, Sail Boat and Turquoise. To control the inks I used my heat tool to just guide the colors in the direction I wanted them. While that dried I used the coordinating dies to cut out all my images, Die-namics Gill Friends, Die-namics

...Sorry I'm Slow

Happy Tuesday crafty peeps! Heather here to share a fun shaker card that I created using some of my favorite things: Distress Oxide Inks, Lawn Fawn Products, and fun Shaker bits! I started this card off by stamping and coloring a few adorable Lawn Fawn sloths from the Hang in There and the Slow Down and Enjoy Stamp Sets. The sloths in both of these stamp sets work so well together! I also added the balloon, birthday present, piece of cake, and little party hat from Lawn Fawn's Party Animal Stamp Set and a few leaves from the Flutter By Stamp Set. What I love so much about Lawn Fawn Stamps is the fact that so many images and stamp sets can work together so seamlessly! I decided that I wanted to create a shaker card for these little guys and inked up a piece of Bristol paper using Twisted Citron & Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink. This is my favorite paper to ink blend onto. I used a 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 Stitched Rectangle die by Lawn Fawn to give a stitched feel to my card ba…

Spooky August Mood Board

Hey there Crafty Friends! Davina here to share some more August Mood Board Inspiration. It is mid August and I’ve made my first Halloween card of the year for the Butterfly Reflections Ink Blog . I used a wonderfully cute and spooky set released last year by Hello Bluebird called Halloween Fun. I really love that BRI carries the Hello Bluebird brand and appreciate that the matching dies and individual cover plates are so reasonably priced because I always make sure to purchase the stamps and matching dies. Today’s card uses a soft and shadowy technique that I have been practicing, and I love the different aesthetic that it gives to my projects. Once again I’ve use the August Mood/Color Board, which s rich in beautiful jewel tones, but the outcome is completely different.

I wanted my card to be bold and bright, but at the same time give a soft and spooky twilight feel. And I think I’ve  accomplished my goal. Using the Gallery Frame #4 Coverplate die (which follows along with my desire …

Clean-and-simple Birthday Card

Hi everyone, Amy Copeland here with a guest design post for Butterfly Reflections, Ink.  I whipped up this clean-and-simple birthday card really quickly using some awesome dies from Lawn Fawn and Hello Bluebird.  I started my card with a piece of Distress Watercolor cardstock and die cut the sentiment out with the awesome Happy Birthday die from Hello Bluebird.  I love the subtle texture the watercolor cardstock brings to the card.  I backed the "HAPPY" word with a piece of Acetate using strong 1/8 " Double-Sided Tape, then built up a channel around the word "HAPPY" with Double-Sided Foam Tape, then sprinkled Studio Katia Mint Dream Crystals inside the channel and backed it with Lawn Fawn Peacock card stock.

I then cut a piece of Lawn Fawn Raspberry card stock with the "birthday" word and inlaid it into the card front using Liquid Glue.

I then got to work on the cupcake.  I die cut all of the components using the Stitched Cupcake die set from Lawn F…

Happy Birthday!

Hello, everyone! It's Cassie here, and I'm back to share a card I made using some of my favorite products. Stencils have been my go to lately for fun and colorful backgrounds. I thought they'd be fun for today's birthday card too! Let's jump right in.

I started with the My Favorite Things stencil called Lots of Heart. Using my Blueprint Sketch and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxides, I ink blended over the stencil to get a nice gradient of color. When I was done I used some of the ink to splatter over the top of the card as well. It reminded me of water splashing :)  I had already colored in these cute images from the Sea-prise!  stamp set, which can make cards go a lot faster if you're in a pinch. I love coloring while I'm watching tv, and then I've got a stock of colored images to use of my cards. It's a win-win! I adhered them down with foam tape once the card panel was dry. Next I stamped out the 'happy' from Lawn Fawn's Happy Happy Hap…
