Altenew 6th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway!

Welcome, crafty friends!

If you just arrived from Mindy Eggen's blog, you're in the right place!

I'm so thrilled to be sharing these projects I made for the Altenew 6th Anniversary Blog Hop!

Altenew has produced so many of my favorite stamp and die sets over the years - and my very first floral stamp was an Altenew set!

There's tons of great ideas along the hop today, and I hope you feel inspired to do some creating after you see all the fabulous projects. So let's get to the cards!

For the first card, I revisted one of my favorite techniques - ink blending over versamark.


I cut down a piece of Specialty Stamping paper to 4 x 5.25 inches and then used the Wildflower Doodles stamp set and Versamark ink to stamp the repeating images on the paper. I then heat-set the paper and applied Coral Berry ink all over the paper. The Versamark ink resists the ink and gives a lovely muted white result.

I glued the finished background piece on to a cut and scored 4.25 x 5.5 inch…

Let's NOT flamingle.

The world is so heavy right now, and I really wanted to make a fun card to send to a friend of mine in Texas. She loves flamingos, so I decided to use the Lawn Fawn flamingo together stamp set but add a NOT to the sentiment to make it a bit more timely. :)


I usually use a dotting technique for sand, and today I added it to the flamingos and the leaves of the "palm tree" (a branch and leaves from Lawn Fawn's a bug deal stamp set) as well ... I love how it turned out!



The stamp sets as well as the following products used in this project can be found in the shop (and don't forget about the 10% discount going on now!): Lawn Fawn cloudy stencil tumbled glass Distress Oxide ink Copic markers Lawn Fawn gemstone shimmery card stock Lawn Fawn black card stock Lawn Fawn simply sentiments stamp set white gel pen foam squares scissors for fussy cutting VersaMark ink clear embossing powder
I hope this card brought a smile to you. Stay safe and healthy, crafty friends!

Caught a Bug? Feel Better Soon!

Hi everyone, Ashley here and I'm so happy to be back on the Butterfly Reflections Ink! Today, I'm sharing a Get Well Soon card featuring stamps and supplies from Lawn Fawn's Spring 2020 Release.


To start, I stamped out the adorable images of branches, leaves, dirt piles and bugs from Lawn Fawn's A Bug Deal stamp set. I coloured them in with Copic markers and cut them all out, leaving a small white border around each image.


For the background, I used a cloudy stencil to blend on some Distress Oxide ink in Tumbled Glass. I did this on almost the entire card panel, leaving a small space at the bottom for the grass. I splattered the whole sky area with some white paint, as well as Lawn Fawn Liquid Stardust, for a layer of shimmer.


At the bottom, I used a grassy stencil to blend on some Distress Oxide ink in Lucky Clover. I love how the one-layer inked background adds so much visual interest without adding too many bulky layers.


I arranged all of the images onto the card fr…

You've Been on My Mind

Hey there, friends!!

Welcome back to the blog! I'm thrilled to be here today, sharing this cheery card that was really easy to put together but also makes a beautiful statement!

So let's get to the card!



I started off by cutting and scoring a 4.25 x 5.5 inch card base and laying it in my MISTI.

Using an ink blending brush and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, I created a soft ink-blended focal point in the background.  I chose blue because I knew I was going to make my floral images pink, and I knew blue would be a nice pop on that background.

I chose the Layered Bouquet Stamp Set from Pinkfresh Studio because I knew it would be a lovely and large focal element for the front of a card and I knew this gorgeous arrangement could carry the entire card.

I stamped the floral images in a series of pink inks, using the lightest shade for the largest floral image and then the medium shade of pink on the smaller image. To get that third layer, I stamped the same second layer of of the image …

Fluttering by with Sunny Studios

Hello Crafty friends! Davina here on the blog with a spring filled slimline card, using a new release by Sunny Studios Stamps. I’m also using the March Mood Board for color inspiration, and there is still a few days to link in a project using the current #brimoodboard for your chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the Butterfly Reflections Ink website.

This is my first time using the adorable stamps by Sunny Studios, and I really love how great this  Spring Showers set is. It’s very rare that I can create a full slimline card using only one single stamp set. I normally combine several sets to create a scene, and I didn’t even use all of the images!

I stamped all of my images onto solar white Neenah classic crest and colored everything with Copic markers sticking to the colors in the Moodboard; yellow, pink, blue and navy. When using color boards for inspiration always keep in mind that skin tones and neutrals often can be added while still keeping in the margins, as long as the focu…
