It's Been a While Crocodile!

Well, I guess it hasn't been too long!  My last post was only a few days ago!  Hopefully you're not tired of me already!  Speaking of - are you following me on Instagram?  If not, and you want to see more of my work, follow me!Today, I'm sharing a fun slimline card I created using the My Favorite Things Aussie Animals, the Trinity Stamps Slimline Card Series: Scenic Border Dies.  The base of my card is made using the Heffy Doodle Slimline Trio Dies.
I am using Scattered Straw Distress Ink and Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide for the ground.

I am stamping my images with Hero Arts Intensified Black Ink and then coloring my images with Copic markers.

For the finishing touch, I am adding some Water Droplets!

Thank you for stopping by the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog!  See you again soon!!

Aim for the Clouds

Hello, everyone! Allison here, and I am back today with a fun take on a shaker card. It’s called an “infinity” shaker card. That’s what I’ve seen it called in several places, anyway, so we’re going to stick with it! The fun thing about an infinity shaker card, aside from its name, is that it makes your entire card panel into a shaker. It’s also super easy and quick to make. I used a fun assortment of goodies from MFT for this card, all of which can be found in the Butterfly Reflections, Ink store. I started today’s card with this incredibly adorable dragon from the Magical Friends set. I want to be that girl flying in the air, don’t you? I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink since I was going to use my Copic markers. There are so many fun color combinations for this dragon, but I went with my favorite color, turquoise. And the purple is for my son because he says I never use purple on cards. This is actually the second purple dragon I've made this week - did I mention he love…

Let it Snow! ❄️

Hi friends!! Sophie here and I'm SO excited to share this simple slimline card that I made using some fun new products from Mama Elephant! 
To create this card I used the new Mama Elephant Slim Woodland Creative Cuts and cut it from white cardstock. I added some detail to the snowbanks and the trees (it's hard to see on the photos, but easy to see in real life!) with Copic markers in BG0000 and E40. 
The cutie little fox images are from the new Mama Elephant Little Fox Agenda set and the sentiment is from the coordinating die set for Let it Snow
To color the foxes I used Copic markers in E13, E15, R00, E50, R24, R27, and YG63! :) 

I hope you enjoyed my card today!! I just received my order from Vanessa with all of the new Mama Elephant goodies and I can't wait to create more cards to share with you all! I hope you have a wonderful day!


Hi everyone! Tina here and I've got a Howl-o-ween card to share featuring this adorable Pug-Kin stamp from Newton's Nook.  I paired it with the fun Spiderweb Stencil for my background. 
I made the background by stamping my Versamark pad over the stencil and heat embossing it with some holographic embossing powder from my stash. It's hard to see in the pics but it is super sparkly. Using my mini distress inks I blended out a spooky Halloween background. I stamped, embossed and colored up the adorable pug and jack-o-lantern using Copics. I cut him out using my Scan n' Cut but you can use the Pug-kin coordinating dies.
 I die cut the layers of grass using black cardstock and the My Favorite Things Grassy Hills Die-Namics. I stamped and embossed the sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Happy Howloween onto a banner from the My Favorite Things Blueprints 27. Finally I added a dangling spider diecut from My Creative Time.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you like my card. Have a …

Peek-a-Boo! Thinking of You! Card and Pocketfold

Hello and a Happy Monday to you!  I'm starting the week off right with this fun card and DIY pocketfold!
Have you ever created a pocketfold?  I made a template that I made a while back that helps me remember the measurements and where to score and fold.
Once I have my pocketfold ready, I can use the Heffy Doodle UnbeLEAFable Stencil and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide to decorate it!

Now, I'm going to stamp my Avery Elle Peek-a-Boo Pals with Hero Arts Intens-ified Black Ink and then color my images with Copic markers.

I'm going to lay my images out so that they're peeking over the pocketfold.  I am using 3D foam strips to adhere their little paws so that they're hanging over the pocketfold.

I'm also going to use some Heffy Doodle Memo Tape to mask off part of the card so that I can create a green triangle in the bottom right part of the card.

I'm going to use a Dress My Craft Border Punch and Catherine Pooler Coral Cabana ink to create a border for my triangle.  I …

Oh So Merry

Hello again! It's Allison, and I'm back with a fun holiday card this week. I have really enjoyed stretching my standard size stamps into images that can be used for slimline cards, and this adorable penguin set from Mama Elephant is perfect for that. The matching die set not only cuts out the image, but it also comes with a fantastic word die, which is what I used for my card today. Both of these can be found in the Butterfly Reflections shop, along with the adorable new Mama Elephant anniversary release! I was really in the mood for a relaxing watercolor session, so I cut a piece of watercolor paper using the Slim Card Basics die set from Mama Elephant. To extend the stamp across the panel, all you need is a stamp platform, like the Misti, and some masking paper. If you're way more talented than me, and you have a large acrylic block, then you could do this without a stamp platform. But, I was not going to attempt that feat! First, I positioned the stamp so that it lined …

Pumpkin Patch with Davina

Hello friends! Davina here, on the blog, with an exciting interactive card to share. My project is another fun example of the beautiful September Moodboard and a mashup between Lawn Fawn & Reverse Confetti products.   I really love the way these beautiful colors come together. I’ve used them several times this month, in both soft and bold versions, and with stunning results each time. I wanted to use glittery gold cardstock for this camera die and love that I found a curry cardstock, is my stash, that was very similar in tone to pair up with it. 
As usual, all of the products used are available on the Butterfly Reflections Ink website. And I will provide links through this post for all of the products.  I started by building my camera using the newer Lawn Fawn Magic Iris Camera Die Add On and the Camera Pull Tab Add On dies. I cut the camera 3 times from curry cardstock, glitter gold cardstock, and a Blush striped patterned paper in my stash, trimming off just the stitched strip. I…
