You've Goat Mail

Hello! When I saw this stamp set, I HAD to have it! This is the Punny Farm Goats Set by Miss Ink Stamps. Isn't he just the cutest?! I did lots of masking and stamping to make the big pile of mail he is climbing. I colored everything with my Copic markers. I used Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink on the background. I finished this one off with some falling envelopes and sequins.  I hope YOU have a great day!  Nikki   

Out of this World Celebration with Lawn Fawn!

Happy Sunday crafty friends, Ashley D. here, and so I’m excited to be back on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog today to share with you my latest out-of-this-world creation!  For a few months now our space-loving seven-year-old has been excitedly counting down the days to tomorrow’s Yuri’s Night.  At first I believed this was simply a fictional celebration from his favorite episodes of Miles from Tomorrowland or Ready Jet Go!  But thanks to Wikipedia, I soon realized, yes indeed it’s real - a day for outer space fans and aficionados across the globe to celebrate milestones in space exploration.  How cool is that?!  On April 12 th , 1961, Yuri Gagarin, aboard Vostok 1, became the first human to launch into space, and exactly 20 years later the United States launched the very first Space Shuttle mission.  So, I decided to put together our own little mini version of this famous ‘World Space Party’ as a surprise for our two sons tomorrow night (and Dad too!).  Alongside snacks, treats, an

April Bri Moodboard with Davina

Hello crafty friends! Davina here with some fairy filled color inspiration. The beautiful April Moodboard is a collection of Honeydew, Robins Egg, Passionfruit, and Violet. I’m always so blown away by the monthly Moodboards that Amanda curates each and every month. I love the challenge of creating scenes using these color pallets.  I have impatiently awaited the arrival of the newest Doodlebug Design release. The adorable fairies from the  Fairy Garden stamp set, and the super cute bugs from  Fairy Bugs and kisses  were a must have me. I also ordered some paper pads and little extras and created this card last night after my package was received. Now I will admit that I strayed from using only colors from the color board on this card. I purchased the cute little mushroom  Fairy House  Doodle Pop, and couldn’t resist using it even though it was orange and bright pink. So you will see that I added a little bit of orange/yellow and pink to my coloring to help the house blend in.  I cut my

Altenew 7th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway (over $1,400 in Total Prizes)

  Hello, Everyone! I'm Allison Frazier, and I'm so excited to be representing Butterfly Reflections, Ink as part of Altenew's 7th Anniversary Blog Hop! If you are following the hop, then you should have arrived here from Verity Biddlecombe . To start at the beginning of the hop, click here . For today's projects, I was excited to use my new Altenew 3D embossing folders for the first time. I made two cards, each using two very similar products, but resulting in two very different looks. For my first card, I used the Diamond Stars 3D Embossing Folder and the Bergenia Builder stamp set and matching die . I colored a piece of watercolor paper with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and blended the colors with a wet paintbrush. I then ran it through my die cut machine using the embossing folder and adhered the panel to an A2 card base. I also embossed a white piece of card stock and cut it down to cover part of the watercolored panel, making sure to line up the pattern

Happy Wedding Day!

Hey crafty friends! It's  Julia  here! I was recently asked to make a wedding card and I was - of course - happy to oblige! My favorite set for wedding cards is the adorable Lawn Fawn Car Critters ! It's just so much fun!! People here used to throw rice for good luck, but in most places it's forbidden nowadays - now lots of people just use bubbles! So I just had to pair the car with the Bubbles of Joy stamp set! First I stamped my images from Car Critters , Bubbles of Joy ,  Village Heroes ,   Happy Village , Bicycle Built for You and Eggstra Amazing Easter onto Transotype Perfect Coloring paper and colored them in using  Copic Markers .   I die cut the Lawn Fawn  Slimline  Stitched Hillside borders  twice as well as the  Largest Stitched Slimline rectangle  out of bristol smooth cardstock. After that I ink blended the sky in  Tumbled Glass  and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide and  Twisted Citron  and  Mowed Lawn  onto the hills.   For the sentiment I used the  Bicycle Built

Open DT Call for May through August Term

Happy Spring, everyone! The weather has been pretty nice here in NH. My husband brought up our patio table and chairs to the deck over the weekend and though it's cloudy and a little breezy today, I'm sitting out here as I type. It's almost the end of birthday season here. My husband's and oldest son's were in March and my middle one turns the big 13 tomorrow. Teenager in the house! {Help me! LOL} I'm sure a lot of you have been seeing some of the store updates I recently posted. I decided to take down the wall of scrapbooking stuff and move it to the back of the shop and replaced that entire wall with more stamps and dies so now there are TWO full sides (64 feet) of allllll stamps and dies. It's much more neat, spread out and easier to see things. I hope you'll be able to come by and check it out. {Insert pics here! LOL I'm not at the shop today.} With the change of seasons also comes the changing of the Design Team. We've loved having all of ou

Have a Happy Spring Moodboard Inspiration!

Hi everyone, Peggy here with some moodboard inspiration. Wishing you all a very happy spring! Today I'm sharing a clean and simple but very pretty butterfly card. Let me show you how I made it! Butterflies make me think of the shop ! And of course of spring. I started out cutting two card bases and two slightly smaller panels from the newest Lawn Fawn Paper Pack Perfectly Plaid Remix . This paper pad truly is perfection. It also fits the current moodboard so nicely! From the Lawn Fawn Inside Out Stitched Rectangle Stackables I cut panels using the second to largest die. I used some Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink to stamp the sentiment 'Have a happy spring!' as well as the butterfly images from Lawn Fawn Simply Celebrate Spring . I matched my copic colors to the current moodboard. I used my tape runner to adhere the patterned paper and used foam tape to pop up the white stitched panels. I used some foam dots to pop up the butterflies. I finished my images with some white gelly

Moodboard inspiration with Reverse Confetti Enchanted Garden by Beata

Hello crafty friends! It's Beata June here.  Today I'm sharing this Enchanted Garden card inspired by this month's brimoodboard. This card features the Reverse Confetti Enchanted Garden stamp set  ( coordinating die available here ). I colored up the cute garden fairies, butterflies, ladybugs, mushrooms and tree I stamped from the  Reverse Confetti Enchanted Garden stamp set  with copic markers using the honeydew, robins egg, passion fruit and violet colors from the moodboard for inspiration.  For my background, I blended Mermaid Lagoon distress oxide ink onto white cardstock and splattered with green and white paint.  I cut out a grassy hillside from white card stock using the Lawn Fawn Simple Stitched Hillside Borders Lawn Cuts die , blended the hillside with Twisted Citron distress oxide ink , and glued it onto my blue blended background with a Lawn Fawn glue tube .  Then I cut out my colored images  ( coordinating die for the Enchanted Garden stamp set available here )

Virtual Hugs

Hello! I've used the Virtual Friends , Bubbles Of Joy , and Long Distance Hugs sets all by Lawn Fawn to make this card. I just love how all the mice work together! Gah! They're all so cute! I colored everything with my Copic markers. I used the Perfectly Plaid Remix 6x6 paper pad for the wallpaper.  I hope your day is as happy as these mice! Nikki   

Happy Easter!

  Happy Easter Everyone!  I'm sharing this fun and colorful Easter card with you today using several Lawn Fawn products which can be purchased at Butterfly Reflections Ink !  My colors were inspired by the April mood board (below).  I choose to use a gradient of greens, blues, purple and coral colors for my card.  Since this card is so colorful, I decided to add in some white in order to focus most of the attention to the critters in front of the card.  To start, I used the stitched rectangles to cut a piece of pattern paper .  Then, I cut another smaller rectangle using white card stock.  The pieces where then adhered together using liquid glue.  Next, I swiped the following Catherine Pooler inks onto scraps of white cardstock:   in the park , mint to be , cummerbund , its a boy , serenade , sweet sixteen , be mine , its a girl, do-si-do , bellini , tiara .  Then, each piece of cardstock was cut to 1/4 inch strips using a die (paper trimmer also works) and adhered to a piece o

Walking On Sunshine!

For my card, I was smiling from ear to ear as I broke out these *exclusive* Butterfly Reflections Ink stamps again! They're so adorable! I used the rainbow, clouds and sun image, but believe me - ALL of the images were calling my name! I just love them! They're from the Breathe Rainbows stamp set ! And I paired them with the sentiment from Over the Rainbow ! So cute! For the background, I used Distress Inks in Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberries and Dried Marigold! Then I splattered some water on top! Next, I used the Hello Baby Boy Twinkling Stars Stencil from Echo Park and some white embossing paste to add some texture to the background! I heat embossed the sentiment in white onto a strip of black cardstock, and then popped it all up with Foam Tape ! Thanks for hanging out! I hope you play along with the April Mo

April 2021 Mood Board

Hello there! Amanda here today to share this month's mood board. If you couldn't tell, I'm definitely still feeling the spring florals! Even though I am a fall/winter kind of girl, there is just something about spring that makes me happy. Watching the world come alive again is so refreshing (and much needed this year). This palette definitely hits that mark! The light,but still vibrant, citron and blue are so airy and fresh. Then that coral and purple come in and add so much drama. Love it!
