A Holly Jolly Christmas Card

Hi there!
Samantha here, and today I'm sharing a super fun and festive card using a bunch of Lawn Fawn products!


Ho ho ho - Santa's sneaking some cookies before delivering the presents under the tree! Ha!
I combined the stamp sets Christmas Dreams and Ho-Ho-Holidays to create this little Christmas eve scene! I fussy cut out all of my images, but never fear, there are coordinating dies to ease your pain!


All of the images were colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers! I also used some older patterned papers from Lawn Fawn for the wallpaper and carpet of the room!
Then I used Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch Distress Inks to add shading to the edges. And then I used Vintage Photo and a tiiiiiiiiny bit of Black Soot to add shading to the carpet! I also splattered some color too, because...well, I just love that look! ha!

I finished off the card by adding foam tape to the santa, tree and stockings!
I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder onto a strip o…

Merry & Bright!

Hello to you this fantastic Friday!  Candice with you here today with a Merry & Bright Christmas Tree card!
Okay, I have a confession to make, I bought almost the whole new release from Hello Bluebird from the Butterfly Reflections, Ink store and have been obsessed with using all of them for Christmas cards before the season is done. 


The fabulous products I used for my card from Butterfly Reflections, Ink:

Penguin Parade

Hello & Happy December! This is Tiffany and I have to start by telling you that I absolutely LOVE Mama Elephant's Little Penguin Agenda! I used this stamp set and several other items from the Butterfly Reflection's, Ink. online store to make this card. The card base measures at 9 1/4 x 5 3/4, then score in half lengthwise. This card fits in an A6 envelope. I used Lawn Fawn's mini Polaroid die from their Say Cheese, Again die set, I cut it out 6 times using white card stock. To create the Polaroid backgrounds, I used two shades of blue to ink blend then spattered white and gold paint.


I stamped the images from Mama Elephant's Little Penguin Agenda and sentiments from Mama Elephant's Holiday Messages in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Once the images were cut out I colored them with Copic markers and added Diamond Stickles to some of the details. I used red gingham patterned paper from Pebble's Merry Merry 6 x 6 paper pad. I assembled the card using Tombo liquid g…

It's a Cocoa Party!

Hello friends and happy December!  This is Crystal here today and before I get to my card, I wanted to share with you all that I got to visit the Butterfly Reflections, Ink store last weekend when I was nearby traveling for Thanksgiving!  Not only did I get to check out the awesome store, but I got to meet Vanessa in person, and on her birthday! I was amazed by the amount of inventory in the store and the space is so well organized and clean.  I didn't even get to see nearly everything I wanted and I was there for almost two hours!  I can't wait to go back again (without my husband)!


Now for today's card. . . I used a stamp set that I purchased when I was at the store last week, although it has been on my list since it was released.  This set is called "Cocoa Stand" by Avery Elle.  I did also combine it with the "Snow Buddies" stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps  to create an even larger scene.  For the base of this slimline card, I cut a piece of turquoise…

Happy Winter Scene!

Happy Tuesday!  I'm back with another winter scene created using Hello Bluebird stamps and dies which can be purchased at Butterfly Reflections Ink!  
For this scene, I used vellum to soften the background.  This is a technique was inspired by Chris C. one of the Hello Bluebird designers.  I just had to try it out for myself!  To start, I ink blended the background using distress oxide colors picked raspberry and abandoned coral on an A2 size piece of Bristol cardstock.  Background hills were cut from white cardstock using the hill and dale dies and adhered using liquid glue. 

Sentiment from the north star set stamped on vellum using stazon ink in black.  Then, I white heat embossed the snowflakes from the snow play stamp set.  Images from snow play and woodland littles stamped and colored using copic markers.  After the images were cut using the coordinating dies, I adhered them to the card front along with the vellum panel and snow panel using liquid glue.  Copic marker added t…

Out Of This World Christmas

Happy Monday everyone! For today's blog post, I'm sharing an Outer Space themed Christmas card. Recently I was looking through my stamp sets, and I came across Lawn Fawn's Beam Me Up. I couldn't help but notice how much the UFOs reminded me of snowglobes. It didn't end up turning out the way I expected, but it was a fun challenge for myself to create a Christmas card with non-Christmas stamps!

To start, I stamped my images using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Then I cut out my images and colored them with alcohol markers. The stamps I used were from Lawn Fawn sets Frosty Fairy Friends, Booyah, Beam Me Up, Out of this World, Oh Gnome, and Christmas Dreams. I also customized the flower stamped from Booyah by adding sepals around the petals.

Next, I created the background on white cardstock. I blended Distress Ink Abandoned Coral, Mustard Seed, Mermaid Lagoon, and Cracked Pistachio randomly on the page to start creating a galaxy. Using my blending tools, I ink blended over…
