Happy Birthday Party Animal!

Hello friends! Gladys here and I'm excited to be back on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog to share another card I made. I combined a lot of products from Mama Elephant so I hope you like it!
I started off coloring the Stackable Cuties and Stackable Friends stamp set using copic markers. I cut them out using their coordinating dies. These sets have various animals you can find in the jungle and on a farm, it even has a unicorn!! For this card I decided to use only the pet animals from each set. I had an idea to use the Ornate House grid as a barn house. To make it look like a barn I cut it out using Lawn Fawn woodgrain cardstock and inked the edges using distress oxide in ground espresso. I cut the house again in Neenah 80lb cardstock and inked the cutouts in distress oxide dried marigold. I adhered the house on a blue cardstock then cut out grass to ground a few of the animals. I foam mounted each of the animals into the window cutouts. 
I stamped the sentiment from the Stackable …

Hope Your Day is Filled with Adventure!

Hi everyone, Ashley here and I am so excited to be back on the Butterfly Reflections, Ink blog this month! Today, I'm sharing a fun, magical card featuring some of Lawn Fawn's newest stamps. This card is also inspired by the colour board for the current Lawn Fawnatics challenge. The colour board is filled with deep purples and blues, as well as bright yellow and orange. It was fun to combine these colours in a way I wouldn't have thought of before!

To start, I blended the background using Distress Oxide inks in the following colours, in order from interior to exterior of the circular blend: Squeezed LemonadeScattered StrawPicked RaspberrySeedless PreservesWilted VioletChipped SapphireI made a simple mask using a piece of scrap paper and a circle die. I blended Squeezed Lemonade into the centre circle. I then covered over that circle with the circle part of the mask, and blended outwards in a circular motion using the above listed colours. I made sure to blend back and forth …

Open Design Team Call for Fall/Early Winter 2020

Hello, hello. What a year it has been, huh?!  I have to admit that these past few months have been extremely challenging. Between the kids getting out of school in mid March, having to close the shop for 3 months and just hoping I can make it through each month, it's taken a lot out of me. I skipped the last DT call because I just couldn't focus and my AMAZING DT have filled in for those couple of months. I have been very lax in sharing their projects, but I am really trying to get back on track and am so, SO grateful for them! That being said, I figured I should put the call out for the next term which will run from September through December. Do you LOVE FALL?! (It's my absolute FAVORITE!!!) Does Christmas do it for you?! If YES, this is the term for you! I am looking for 5 new Design Team members to join the team. You are only required to create one card per week and share via social media 2-3 times per week. I do accept international applications, but you would be requi…

August BRIMoodboard with Davina

Hello my colorful friends! Davina here, using the August BRIMoodboard, and Avery Elle stamps. I really love the jewel tone colors of the current Moodboard and I wanted to let them shine. I have been hoarding so many adorable Avery Elle stamp sets that I haven’t had the chance to use, so I decided to go ahead and dig in. The Fairy Happy  Stamp set was perfect for this gorgeous color palette.  I started by cutting a piece of white cardstock using some Lawn Fawn Cross-Stitch layers. Then I stamped a navy starry sky using the Avery Elle Starry Scene and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink. Once I stamped it several times and achieved even coverage, I splattered some glittery and white ink onto the stamped image.  Next, I stamped my images onto Neenah solar white classic crest, then colored them with copic markers in shades of the Moodboard colors. I tried to get a lot of variation using only the four color families, and only added skin and hair tones. After die cutting the images I mounted the 3…

Cute and Simple Congrats Card

Hi everyone! I'm super excited to be back on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog today, sharing a card I made! I was in need of a baby card and I decided to pull together some of my favorite brands and create a cute and simple card. Let's jump right in. I started with some blue card stock and used the new Heffy Doodle stencil Head in the Clouds. Instead of ink blending with a stencil, like I normally would, I used my white gel pen and outlined the openings of the clouds. I thought this was a fun chance of pace! I also added some highlight lines on each cloud to add some detail. It was super easy to do but adds a nice touch :) 
I used the Over Coffee ink by Catherine Pooler to stamp out some images by Lawn Fawn. I love this ink for stamping as well as for using with Copics! It always works SO well! I stamped out a couple images from the Really High Five stamps and colored them in. I fussy cut them out and adhered them to the card with some glue dots. Then I found some twine in m…

You are the cooles Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo

Hello Friends Waleska from craftinglovew here super happy to be sharing again with you here at the blog!   I had so much fun creating this colorful slimline card I hope you like it!

I started by die cutting this fun MFT Baby Shark Die-namics with different colors of cardstock. You can do them in any color, I added a little shading to the sharks with Oxide Inks for dimention.

To adhere together the shark mouth I found that it is easier to assemble the teeth and the inside part of the mouth and then adhere the mouth part.

To continue with this card I did the card background, I wanted a deep sea feel, I used oxide inks in colors Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch and Mermaid Lagoon, for the sand piece I used Trinity Stamps  Slimline Scenic Border Dies I used Vintage Photo Oxide ink for the edges and splashed some vintage photo drops of water as well as some white acrilic paint mixed with water for some tesxture of the sand.

I also cut  two panels of the Lawn Fawn Bayou Bakdrop on a l…

Hello Gorgeous!

Happy Tuesday crafty friends! Kim with you this morning sharing a card featuring all Altenew products :) You can find these products in the Butterfly Reflections Ink Store!

Not sure about any of you, but since this pandemic has had us on lock-down I have been enjoying my stash and going back to much loved products.  This card is no exception, I do love me some Altenew flowers.  
I used the Sweet Rose Bouquet layering  stamp set and accompanying dies along with my Altenew ink cubes in Sweet Dreams and Green Fields for the flowers and leaves.

I then embossed my sentiments from the Altenew Frosted Garden Stamp set.  I die cut my Watercolor Stripes Cover Plate die using Lawn Fawn Black Licorice cardstock and put all of my elements together using a mix of foam tape and Lawn Fawn glue stick on a Neena Solar White 110lbs card base.

To finish off, I added some Pretty Pink Posh gold sequins! Thanks so much for taking the time, have a great week!

I'd Be Lost Without You Anniversary Card

Hey friends! Britney here with a card featuring several Lawn Fawn products (Car CrittersHappy Village, Oliver’s Stitched ABCs, Happy, Happy, Happy, and Foursquare Backdrop: Portrait). My husband and I just celebrated our ninth wedding anniversary at the end of July and I thought this card was very fitting to celebrate. If you’ve ever read any of my previous blog posts before, you know I like to start with my background first. I started by cutting four panels using the Foursquare Backdrop: Portrait out of Chili Pepper card stock. I cut out the center cross lines from each and glued them all together using liquid adhesive. On a plain white panel of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White card stock, I masked off a line to ink up my sky. I used Lawn Fawn Fish Tank and Blue Jay inks. Once that was done, I spritzed some of the Avery Elle Clear Shimmer Spray to the background. I used Lawn Fawn Manatee and Soot inks to ink up my road and Cilantro and Freshly Cut Grass inks for the grass.  I stamped…

I'm Here for You, Friend!

Samantha here, and today I have a sweet, supportive card to share!
We could all use some extra love and kindness right now (and always!), so I thought this card would be perfect! I used a bunch of different products to make it, so let's get down to business!

I just love it!
I started by coloring these ADORABLE images from Waffle Flower using the Be Him Stamp Set!
I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color them in, and then fussy cut the out!
I popped up the boss with foam tape!

For the background, I used Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry, Abandoned Coral, Dried Marigold and Squeezed Lemonade to ink blend. Then I used the SAME colors over the Big Hearts Polka Stencil from Create a Smile Stamps! love that subtle little look!! and those hearts are just the best!

I heat embossed the sentiment onto vellum, using black embossing powder, from the Avery Elle Speech Bubbles stamp set! Then I finished off the card with some Pretty Pink PoshSparkling Clear Sequins Mix!
So fun! …

August 2020 Mood Board

Hello there! Amanda here today to share this month's mood board. Last month's color scheme was all about the heat, but now we're flipping to the other side of the spectrum and cooling things down. I haven't been camping on a lake since I was a kid but for some reason that's what this color palette makes me think of. I can just imagine late summer/early fall evenings on a secluded lake with a small private cabin and dock. Sounds perfect right about now! 

Iced Melon, Aqua Sky, Steel Blue and Plum
I can't wait to see what you all do with this palette! Be sure to share your creations on Instagram with #BRImoodboard, or keep an eye out for the link up over on Davina's blog, for a chance to win a $20 credit to the shop!
