Back to School Pop Up Box Card

 Hi crafty friends! Ahhh, it's that time of year again-- the smell of new crayons, the feel of a freshly sharpened Dixon Ticonderoga pencil gliding across wide ruled paper, and the morning rush to get out the door on time... it's back to school time!  I made this pop up box card to celebrate this glorious time of year using several Mama Elephant stamp sets and the Lawn Fawn box card pop up die. I colored the images with Copic markers and cut them out with their coordinating dies. I tried to turn the bear image into a panda because pandas are a favorite animal here in my home.  For one of the side panels, I thought it would be fun to cut out one panel from actual lined notebook paper for the cat with the pencil and then I wrote on it with a pencil.  To create the background, I cut out a box panel from gray cardstock and used a brick stencil with Distress Oxide ink. For the floors, I used a woodgrain stamp with Versamark ink on kraft cardstock. I heat embossed the sentiment on th

Sea You Soon with Clearly Besotted Stamps

 Hello friends!  Audrey here with one of my favorite kinds of card to create... ocean themed!  I love mixing and matching ocean and sea themed products from different companies to add to the scene creating possibilities! I just love this adorable little kitty and his balloons from the Clearly Besotted Balloon Bunch Sea stamp set!  There are not companion dies for this set, but I was able to easily cut them out with my Scan N Cut.  Read on to see what other products I used to create this card! :) Products used: Clearly Besotted Balloon Bunch Sea stamp set Lawn Fawn Say What?

Zesty Lemon Pop Up Card

 Hi crafty friends! Today I am sharing a pop up card featuring the Lawn Fawn Zesty Lemons ! I love these lemons! I never knew lemons could be so cute! I stamped the gingham pattern on the inside of the card and on a separate panel for the front. (Tip: if you want something easier, use gingham paper ! That background took 4 tries to get right haha!) Then I die cut lots of lemons from colored cardstock and used some Distress oxides to add a hint of shading on the lemons and leaves. I used Copic markers to color the flower details and added a happy face on the lemon (those pink cheeks aren't showing up well in the picture, sorry!).  I made the pop up mechanism according to this Jennifer McGuire video  (link is time stamped to the exact spot for your convenience). The great thing about this pop up technique is that no special dies are required! I stamped the gingham pattern on both sides of my pop up piece to camouflage it against my background. For my card, I made the pop up piece 4&q

Shrinky Dinks Ocean Shaker Card

 Hi crafty friends! I have become a bit obsessed with making shrinky dink shaker bits for shaker cards! For today's card, I used some Clearly Besotted stamp sets from the July release. The colors are inspired by the August BRI mood board and are perfect for my underwater scene!  I colored with Copic markers and fussy cut all the images, then added Nuvo drops all over the swimming cat's helmet to give it shine. To create the background, I did some ink smooshing with Distress inks on watercolor paper. It was a lot of fun and I can't believe I don't ink smoosh more often!  Now for the super fun part, shrinky dinks! If you would like a quick tutorial on making shrinky dink shaker bits, check out this video I made for a different shrinky dink shaker card (I used the same technique for this card). And here is the non-video explanation: I used "frosted" or pre-sanded shrinky dink plastic and stamped the images on the sanded side. (For the shells, I masked off the

Birthday Dragon Slider Card

Hi crafty friends! It's Jenn and I am so excited and grateful to be back again designing for Butterfly Reflections Ink this term! Shameless plug for the store and Vanessa: I love how BRI carries SO. MANY. crafty brands and that Vanessa has been working her heart out through thick and thin... especially right now as she is working on regaining her health! So please remember Vanessa and check out BRI for all your crafty needs! Okay, onto my card for today! I love it when a new product is super versatile and can go with many of my already loved sets like the Mama Elephant In the Clouds cover die that was released back in May. I immediately thought of all the balloon/flying/airplane type of sets that I have that would work well with this cover die. **Add to cart!** πŸ˜‚  I used distress oxides to ink up the sky ( tumbled glass ) and the MFT Ray of Light stencil for the sunburst (distress oxides: squeezed lemonade , dried marigold ). Then I splattered broken china distress ink to creat

August 2022 Mood Board

Hello there! Amanda here today to share this months mood board. For August I'm challenging you all with a somewhat monochromatic palette, but monochromatic doesn't mean boring! There's lots of umph and boldness with the bright teal and deep blue. Blue and gold is such a striking combo and I love that this pale gold doubles as a sandy brown to really play up the ocean vibes.  Ocean Mist, Tropical Teal, Deep Lagoon, Pale Gold Image Sources: Pinterest I can't wait to see all of your creations!
