Graduation Card - With Personalized Elements!

Hi crafty peeps, Heather here to share a Graduation themed card that I’ve made for my oldest baby - who will be graduating High School next week!! She’ll be heading off to college in the fall and I am just so unbelievably proud of her and all of her accomplishments! I wanted to create a Graduation card to fit to her personality - which is mermaid all the way! One of the things I love so much about cardmaking / stamping is personalizing the stamped images to match the recipient or event that I am stamping for! I really love that Lawn Fawn has so many products that present that opportunity and, of course, Vanessa always has the Butterfly Reflections Ink Shop loaded up with TONS of Lawn Fawn goodies for us!!! To create this card I stamped and Copic colored a variety of underwater images from a couple Lawn Fawn Stamp sets: Mermaid for You, You are Sublime, the new Keep on Swimming, and So Jelly. I also stamped/die cut the graduation cap & diploma from Mama Elephant’s Page Hu…

May Mood Board with Davina

Hello crafty friends. Davina here today on the Butterfly Reflections Ink Blog to talk about inspiration, and share a card I made using Mama Elephant stamps and the gorgeous Butterfly Reflections Ink  May Mood Board.

When we sit down to create something, whether it be small or a large project, we sometimes know right away what we want to make. And other times we know we want to make something, but need a little help or a jumping off point. When we are inspired by something we see, hear or experience we can quickly make a beautiful project. As a crafter/ maker I often find inspiration in many different places. One of my favorites is mood and/or color boards. Every month Butterfly Reflections Ink posts a Color Board and encourages you to play along by making a project and sharing it on the SM platform you like best, and tagging them and using #BRImoodboard. Inspiration is interpreted differently by every single person. They are a starting off point, not the finish line. If I see a photo …

Waffle Flower Be Her Set

Hey friends! Britney here with a fun set of cards featuring the Waffle Flower Be Her and the MFT Because You stamp set.  I went crazy and wanted to use all the images from the set. I stamped my images with Gina K Amalgam Jet Black Ink and colored my images with Copic Markers.  I finished off my images by adding some highlights with a white gel pen.
For the color panels attached to my card base, I used Lawn Fawn’s Really Rainbow paper packReally Rainbow Scallops paper pack, and gold glitter cardstock.  Also, those were cut using the largest of the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Stackables. I made my frames from heavy weight cardstock. I used the largest of the Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables because it cuts off just enough to leave a nice background frame. 
I used the middle sizes of Lawn Fawn Reverse Stitched Scalloped Squares and Lawn Fawn Reverse Stitched Scalloped Circles to create the windows. I popped my frames up using foam tape.  For the Unicorn, I used stencil…

Get Crafty!

Crafting makes everything better! Kathy here to share a couple cards created with Gina K Designs Crafty Notes stamp set. This awesome set makes my heart so happy - it contains images of all the crafty tools I love to play with!


For my first card, I layered Lawn Fawn Black cardstock onto the cardbase.  I then cut circles from Lawn Fawn White cardstock using Waffle Flower Stitched Nesting Circles dies; offsetting the die cuts.  I stamped and copic colored the craft images popping them up on and around the circle die cuts.  I then stamped the images using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink Pad.


For my second card, I layered Lawn Fawn Black cardstock onto the cardbase.  I then layered on a piece of Lawn Fawn White cardstock and blended some Antique Linen Distress Oxide Ink with the Mini Ink Blending Tool.  I stamped and copic colored several of the Crafty Notes images and arranged them.  To finish, I stamped the sentiment (my mantra!) with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink Pad.


Sweet Summertime by MFT

Hi everyone!  It's Amanda here today, sharing a card that I've made showing off some new product by MFT.  I've always been a big fan of the Pure Innocence line and I have to say my jaw hit the floor when I saw this brand new Sweet Summertime stamp and die set! And of course I had to have this beautiful and FUN die set, Watermelon Slice!  Also check out this coordinating stamp set, Sweet Sentiments AND matching die, Sweet Die-Namics.  I heat embossed the sentiment from the Sweet Sentiments set in white on black and die cut using these awesome new Skinny Strips Dies.

So I cut a background piece of paper (Birthday Blowout 6x6 pad MFT) A2 sized and glued to my card base.  Then i layered with a stitched rectangle in white and I also added some inking behind my scene using Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink.I used this Glitzy Cardstock to cut my watermelon rind out and I love the look!  I also added some Glossy Accents on the seeds and they look so real!  Lastly I added a few enamel dot…

Make a Wish

Hello everyone and happy Friday! It's Ashley today with a birthday card using some super cute stamps and dies from Hello Bluebird! It was my first time using products from Hello Bluebird, and let me just say - I am in LOVE! Look how sweet these little cows are!



I started by blending some Distress Oxide Inks in Spun Sugar and Tattered Rose onto a piece of white cardstock, then splattered it with water and watered down acrylic paint in white and gold. I blasted it with my heat gun so I didn't have to wait for it to dry, then used the largest rectangle in the Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangles to cut out the panel. I cut the Hello Bluebird Make a Wish die twice from white cardstock and once from metallic gold cardstock and glued them together with the Zig 2-Way Glue Pen - be careful not to lose the dot! :)



I stamped all the cows from the Hello Bluebird Farmyard Little Bits stamp set onto some bristol smooth paper with black hybrid ink. I then colored them using my Zig Clean…

Picture Perfect

Hi Crafty Friends, Julianne here sharing some cute and fun cards using the My Favorite Things Picture Perfect Stamp Set as well as the My Favorite Things Shutter Card Components Die-namics. I had so much fun creating these cards and surprisingly they were really easy to create.
When My Favorite Things came out with this stamp set I knew I wanted to create a card for one of my co-workers, I knew she would love the dog and cat images. I really wish there was a puffer fish in this stamp set, I think it would have been super cute as well. I started out by stamping the images with my Misti with some VersaFine Onyx Black Ink. This ink stays wet longer than most which is great because I used some Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder to heat emboss the images. I colored all of my images using a variety of copic markers; once they were all colored in I started working on my card bases.
For my card I used a variety of paper from My Favorite Things including the Roses All Over Paper PadBundles of …
