Flippin' Awesome Holiday Wishes

Hello Crafty Friends! This is Tiffany and today I'm sharing a Flippin' Awesome Holiday Card. I used several Lawn Fawn items from the Butterfly Reflections, Ink. online store to create this project. I began by die cutting the pieces needed from Lawn Fawn's Flippin' Awesome, Flippin' Awesome Add-On, and Stitched Hillside Borders. I used white card stock and pattered paper from Lawn Fawn's Snow Day & Snow Day Remix paper pads.   

I used images from Lawn Fawn's Ho Ho Holidays, Holiday Helpers, and Yeti or Not. The "Let it Snow" sentiment is from Lawn Fawn's Winter Big Scripty Words. The images and sentiment were stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Once the images were cut out, I colored them with Copic markers.

I ink blended the blue backgrounds, spritzed water on them and splattered them with silver and white paint.

I added Christmas Red Stickles to the Christmas Trees and white glitter to the holiday hats and Santa's outfit.

Sweet As Pie

Hi readers!  This is Crystal here today sharing a yummy Thanksgiving card using the new "Sweet as Pie" stamp set by SugarPea Designs.   This stamp set has my name written all over it.  "Sweet" and "pie" in the same sentence?  Yes, please!  It's no secret that I L-O-V-E-sweets and with Thanksgiving coming up next week, I'm thinking all things pumpkin and apple right now using this set. 


The base of this A2 sized card is made from Kraft cardstock.  I cut a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of plaid paper similar to that of the Echo Park My Favorite Fall paper pack and adhered this to the card base. Using the Hello Bluebird Gallery Frame #2 die, I cut the frame from orange cardstock. I lined the back of the frame with a piece of Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock.


I stamped the sentiment "You're as sweet as pie" in a brown ink directly onto the white base lining.  Next, I stamped the images from the "Sweet as Pie" stamp set in

Snowflake kisses

Hi Everyone!  I'm sharing a colorful card I created using a few items from the new HelloBlueBird release.  You can find all the new sets at Butterfly Reflections Ink!
To start, I cut a piece of Arches hot press watercolor paper to A2 size.  Then, using distress stains I smooshed the colors on to the watercolor paper using a piece of acetate (you could substitute either distress inks or liquid watercolor to create the same look).  I choose a mix of yellows, pinks, oranges and reds to create this colorful look.  Then using gold ink, I splattered the background.  The panel was left to dry overnight. 


Winter Woods Overlay die was cut from white heavy weight cardstock and adhered using liquid glue to the background panel.  The sentiment from first snow stamp set was stamped using VersaMark ink and white heat embossed.  The bunnies from first snow were stamped on a separate piece of Bristol cardstock using Versafine Clair in nocturne.  Then I colored the images using zig real brush pens…

Frosty Friends

Happy Monday friends! Cards are always great fun to make, but today I'm excited to be sharing some cute Christmas ornaments instead. I recently received the Lawn Fawn stamp sets Frosty Fairy Friends and Ready, Set, Snow from the Butterfly Reflections Ink shop. I couldn't wait to use all of the adorable images in them, so I decided to mix and match sets to create these delightful decorations.


To start, I stamped my images on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I wanted my snow globes to have dimension so I stamped out four in total. Next, I colored my images with some Copic Markers. After the figures were cut out, I assembled the mini-scenes using my Lawn Fawn Glue Tube. 


Now to make them into ornaments! I began by punching holes at the tops of each globe using a one-hole puncher. Then, I added a double layer of foam tape to the back of each globe before attaching them to the blank globes. To create the hangers, I threaded ribbon through each hole and tied them into…

Just Sitting Here...

Hi all, it's Heather here with you today to share a fun card I created using some new goodies. I was so super thrilled to see this adorable Treehouse Scene die set from Hello Bluebird!! I knew I'd HAVE to have it and we can always count on Vanessa to have the latest and greatest of all things Hello Bluebird in the Shop!!! Here is a look at my card: I started this baby off by die cutting out 4 of the trees. 1 of them was cut out of Bristol Smooth paper and the other 3 were cut out of 80lb white cardstock. I gave the edges of the 3 white tree trunks a bit of ink using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a Blender Brush then inked up the entire tree that was cut out of the Bristol Paper using the same: Next I went to work stamping and Copic coloring the images from the Hello Bluebird First Snow Stamp Set I wanted to use this month's #brimoodboard for inspiration!!!! I know this is a wintery stamp set, but I wanted to create a fall scene so badly - and this Mood Board is ju…

Happy Holidays - Mama Elephant and Hello Bluebird

Hi there crafty friends and happy Saturday!  Jacquie here to share a sweet card using two of my favorite stamp companies....Hello Bluebird and Mama Elephant!



To make this card I first stamped and colored the Oh Puppy Tree stamp from Mama Elephant. I used a lot of different Copic markers and also a white gel pen to add accents, and snowfall.  The entire background was colored with Copic markers, and then I brushed a little distress ink onto the edges.


 The Hello Bluebird Winter Woods Overlay Die (such a great deal at $13.77!)  frames this cute image perfectly!  I added some birch tree bark, and Sparkle pen.  I added the sentiment to the top.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
Peace,
Jacquie
