Cute Bookmarks with Butterfly Kisses

Hi everyone! It's Peggy here and today I am sharing two cute bookmarks with images from the Lawn Fawn Butterfly Kisses and Den Sweet Den stamp sets. I am an avid reader and find myself in need of new bookmarks all the time. They are also fun as a small gift or to accompany a book you are gifting to a friend. I was thrilled with the release of the Den Sweet Den stamp set because it is currently the only Lawn Fawn set featuring books.  You can make these bookmarks in any size you like. I used 12x12 paper, but you can also use a 6x6 paper pad. I used the Into the Woods remix paper pack.  I cut the patterned paper and some white cardstock with my guillotine trimmer. First I used Violet's ABCs to spell out the bookish quotes. I cut the white cardstock just under the quote. You can use any type of die you like for this. I used a speechbubble die and a cloud die. Behind the small opening I stuck a different piece of patterned paper and distressed the upper edge of the bottom panel u

Fun in the kitchen

The Made With Love collection from Doodlebug is ridiculously cute! I just can't get enough! I've made 3 cards using a similar design. For all of them I used Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables and Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables by Lawn Fawn to make the cabinet and drawers. The greetings on all are from the Big Scripty Words stamps and dies by Lawn Fawn. I've used Fox Costumes Before n Afters , Baked With Love , Unicorn Picnic and Big Thanks For Hero Arts all by Lawn Fawn. I colored everything with my Copic markers. For this first card I incorporated the Bake Me Happy Doodlepops . These Doodlepops are all so cute! Gah! I need them allllll.  I just love the papers in the Made With Love 6x6 paper pad by Doodlebug so much! This plaid is the absolute caaautest. Yes, that's a word. ;)  I used a Sakura Gelly Roll white pen to add little details here and there. And to finish, I used Glossy Accents to make some bits shiny.  I hope you have a wonderful week!

With Love From All the Reverse Confetti Critters!

Hi crafty friends! Beata June here, and I'm excited to be back with you on the blog today sharing how I made this card with some of my favorite Reverse Confetti stamps critters! Aren't these critters so adorable? The cute critters were stamped from these Reverse Confetti stamp sets:   Cookies & Milk ,  Lemonade Stand ,  Flowers for a Friend ,  Yuletide Mice  and Party Pals.  The flower stand was stamped from the  Flowers for a Friend  stamp set.  I stamped the lemonade stand and lemonade sign from the  Lemonade Stand  stamp set ( coordinating die available here ).  The baskets of fruit, lemons, leaves, flower pots, and flower baskets were stamped from the Reverse Confetti  Lemonade Stand ,  Flowers for a Friend , and  Cookies & Milk  stamp sets.  After I stamped my images using my mini stamping tool , I colored them with copic markers and cut them out. To make my background, I blended various distress oxide inks ( Wilted Violet , Shaded Lilac , Spun Sugar , Tumbled Gla

BRI Moodboard inspiration with Davina

 Hello crafty friends! Davina here on the blog, with a super sweet filled card using Mama Elephants stamps and dies and the wonderful January BRI Moodboard colors.  I know this card could easily be a sweet filled valentine or friendship card, but I needed a birthday card and it works perfectly. Not being a cake lover myself, I often want different delights when it is my turn to celebrate. And all everything on this card looks yummy enough to eat!  I have so many incredible Mama Elephant stamp sets that I haven’t used yet so I felt it was time to pop them open and get coloring. The images in the newer  Milkshake Stamp Set  are so cute and large, that I didn’t need to combine them with any other sets to create a full scene. I stamped all of the images using the  Lawn Fawn Crunchy Leaf Ink  for a nice light brown outline. I color everything in shades of Pink, mint, navy blue, and rosy tan earth color to represent the rose gold.  I use the coordinating die cuts to cut out my images then hi

Frosty Fairy Friends!

Hey crafty friends! It’s Julia here with magical (and frosty!) scene card! I hope you are not sick of wintery cards yet! I realized that I have barely used the adorable Frosty Fairy Friends from Lawn Fawn, so I thought it was finally time to do so!  First I stamped my images onto Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored them in using Copic Markers . Then I die cut the Stitched Scalloped Rectangle dies three times out of white cardstock and layered them for extra dimension. I also die cut grassy borders and birch trees . The dies I used are currently out of stock, but the ones from Sunny Studio Stamps or Lawn Fawn or would work perfectly as well! I added a few stripes with my markers onto the trees to add a little more interest. After that, I ink blended Spun Sugar , Worn Lipstick , Dusty Concord , Wilted Violet and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock for a vibrant, magical winter sky. I also added lots of splatters of Liquid Stardust for more

Delivery Surprise with Lawn Fawn stamps

Hi crafty friends!  Beata June here. 💚  So thrilled to be up on the blog today sharing this Lawn Fawn card with you! Special Delivery! I used the Lawn Fawn Special Delivery , Love Letters , Open Me , and Thanks a Bushel stamp sets for this card and colored my stamped images with copic markers.   For the background, I used the Lawn Fawn Grassy Hillside Pop-Up Add-On die  and Lift the Flap Tree Backdrop die , and blended Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxide Ink on the grass (then splattered with green paint) and blended Walnut Distress Oxide Ink on the trees using  Picket Fence Life Changing Blender Brushes. To make the sky, I blended  Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink  and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide. Here's another look at the surprise delivery! Thanks for joining me today for this special delivery Lawn Fawn card.  I'll be back again next week to share more crafty fun! Crafty hugs, Beata June 💚

Mood Board Inspiration with Farhana

Hey everyone! Today I'm sharing a Valentine's Day card inspired by the mood board . Check out this month's gorgeous mood board created by Amanda!  I was inspired by the color scheme, who doesn't like rose gold, along with the dark blue starry background (didn't add stars, just lots of shine!) To create the card I started by stamping both the heart wreaths from the Large Floral Hearts  stamp set with a light copic friendly ink. I left the stamps in my stamp positioner so I could restamp after coloring. I colored using pink and teal copic combos (RV13-21, 21-02, 23-04, 02-00 and BG 13-11), and then embossed using rose gold embossing powder . Then die cut them using the coordinating dies . To create the background I used the  Love Background Stencil  to emboss a piece of navy card stock. This is a great way to stretch your supplies!  To assemble the card, I layered the floral heart die cuts with some foam tape, added Midnight Black Jewels , and an embossed sentiment on

A Beary Special No Line Coloring Card

 Hi there! It's Peggy here. Today I want to show you a card with this super cute stamp set called Beary Special Birthday from My Favorite Things.  This stamp set is so versatile, especially if you combine it with different card making techniques. No line coloring can be tricky, but for me Lawn Fawn's new Jellyfish inkpad was a game changer. I was always struggeling with either having harsh stamp lines showing through my no line coloring, or the stamp lines being so light that I couldn't see where to color anymore. This copic friendly ink from Lawn Fawn helps me a lot in getting my no line coloring the way I want it and I challenge you to try it as well! It's easier than you think! To finish the image I used a white gelly roll pen to add some highlights and I added Nuvo Crystal Dimensional Glaze to the balloon and set it aside to dry. For the background I used a really cool technique you can do with the W ow Freestyle tool and embossing roller. This is basically a rol

Love You Lots

Hello! Nikki here with a couple of lovey cards using the Halloween geared stamp set Fox Costumes Before N Afters by Lawn Fawn.  I've also used the new Made With Love 6x6 paper pad by Doodlebug Designs which is...THE CUTEST THING EVER. Sorry I yelled at you, but it's true. I used the Stitched Scalloped Circle Frames and Outside in Stitched Rectangle Stackables both by Lawn Fawn. I used the Fancy Wavy Banners and Wavy Sayings for the greeting strip. The other greeting is from the Sweet Friends set by Lawn Fawn. So many cute options for greetings in that set! LOVE! Oh, I got the scalloped border on the bottom by using the biggest die in the Scalloped Rectangle Stackables . When I have my stuff out, I sometimes like to make a second card. You've already got the mess made, might as well get another card out of it, right?! Here's a variation using the same stuff with Kraft cardstock. I love kraft. Swoon. I added sequins and glossy accents here and there. I used my old

Mood board inspiration with Jane

  Hi friends!  Today I'm sharing this cute mood board inspired Valentine's Day card.  Check out this month's gorgeous mood board created by Amanda!  I was inspired by the starry sky image and cool winter tones to create my card. To start, I first stamped my images using versafine clair ink in nocturne onto Bristol smooth cardstock.  Images are from the following sets:  yeti or not (scarves and hearts), special delivery (birds), a bug deal (branch), love letters (sentiment).  The images were colored using tombow dual brush pens and a number 2 paint brush with water to soften the colors.  Colors used: 403, 291, 910, 025, 803 (birds), 723 and 761 (scarves and hearts).  White gel pen used to add accents to the images and they were cut using the coordinating dies. To create the center sky, I swiped my stargazer ink pad on white cardstock then cut it using the star trail die (by Ellen Hutson).  The rectangle was cut using the stitched scalloped square frames die and I adher

Let's Curl Up Mood Board Inspired Card

Hi BRI friends, Sara here! I am so happy to join this blog for a mood board inspiration. When I have to choose a color palette I always struggle, I think color choices are really important to create a balanced card. Well, last year I discovered the BRI Mood Boards and I just have to tell you that all of them were absolutely gorgeous. They inspired me to create many cards, they helped me to “open” my mind and learn new color schemes. So I am really really happy to be here, I hope you will join our challenge and I am sure you will love what you will do. This color palette is beautiful, it is wintery but with some fresh tones that made me think to an early spring…and since next month there will be Valentine’s day, I couldn’t resist to create a love card.  I used the adorable MFT “Let’s curl up” stamp set . I am a fox addicted (I don’t know why, but I love every single fox stamp!) and this set was a must have to me. (Mmm, what set is not a must have to me? LOL) I started ink blending the

Mice on Ice!

Hello crafty friends! It’s Julia here with another fun wintery scene card! I just can’t get enough! It’s freezing here these days, so I am just all about the frosty scenes! ;-) For this one I used the super cute Mice on Ice stamp set by Lawn Fawn! First I stamped my images onto Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored them in using Copic Markers.   Then, I die cut the Stitched Pond out of the piece with the colored Over the Mountain Borders to add a nice detailed edge to my panel. After that, I ink blended Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord Distress Oxide onto the top of a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock and on the bottom I added Tumbled Glass , Broken China and Peacock Feathers for my skating pond. On the pond I also sprayed shimmer spray to add an icy sheen.  I stamped the sentiment with black ink onto the pond and also stamped some “skating marks” using Broken China Distress Oxide. I adhered the mountain panel onto the background with some foam tape for extra dimension. I

Hi Ho! Snow White inspired card

Hi Ho crafty friends!  Beata June here, and I'm so excited to share my first project with you as a member of the design team for the January - April 2021 term! 💛   Today I am sharing how I made this Snow White inspired card featuring Hello Bluebird, My Favorite Things and Lawn Fawn stamps/dies.  First, I stamped 7 gnomes from the Hello Bluebird Next Door Gnomes stamp set and colored them with copic markers to represent the 7 dwarfs.  Next I stamped out the girl gnome from the same stamp set and colored her up with copic markers to make my Snow White and added a little red bow to her hat.  Then I added white highlights with a jelly roll pen and cut out my colored images. Next, I stamped out the little gnome house from the My Favorite Things Hanging with My Gnomies stamp set , colored it with copics, added white highlights with a jelly roll pen , and cut it out.  ( Coordinating die available here in the shop.) For my next step, I cut out a grass panel for my card from white card

Winter Wonderland Card

Happy Wednesday everyone and welcome back to the Butterfly Reflections Ink Blog and my FIRST post! I'm so excited to be here and can't wait to share a whole lot of inspiration with you! I love all things floral and recently started coloring critters! So it was fitting to share a critter card!  I'm all for stretching stamp sets, so just cause the holidays are over doesn't mean we can't keep making winter cards! I never got to these stamps last year, so I had to get them inky!  To create the card I started by stamping the three critters from the  Winter Magic Stamp Set  on to watercolor paper  and colored them using Zig Real Brush markers. Then I fussy the images.  To create the 'scene' I die cut the scallop and stitched rectangle (with the windows) from the  Slim Card Basics Creative Cuts . I ink blended the edge of the scalloped rectangle with some distress oxide ink in Tumbled Glass , then I used the same ink to stamp the snowflakes from the  Baby, It'

Moodboard Inspiration with Peggy

Hello! My name is Peggy and this is my very first post as a design team member for Butterfly Reflections, Ink! I am so happy to be here among such talented crafters and hope to inspire you with my work! Today’s card is a thank you card inspired by this month ’ s gorgeous moodboard featuring rose gold, powder pink, icy mint and deep space blue. I started by cutting a side folding slimline card base from white 300 gsm paper measuring 7 x 8.5 inch, scored at 3.5 inch using my EK success mini scoring board . From rose gold mirror board I cut a panel measuring 3.5 x 8.5 inch and a panel of white 300 gsm cardstock to do some ink blending measuring 3 x 8 inch. Next I taped my panel to my Tim Holtz glass media mat (travel size). I used three colors of distress oxide pads , starting at the bottom with dried marigold , then spun sugar and tattered rose . I used my Lawn Fawn Cloudy Stencil and some chipped sapphire distress oxide ink to overlay a cloud pattern. Lastly, I used distress o
