...Sorry I'm Slow

Happy Tuesday crafty peeps! Heather here to share a fun shaker card that I created using some of my favorite things: Distress Oxide Inks, Lawn Fawn Products, and fun Shaker bits! I started this card off by stamping and coloring a few adorable Lawn Fawn sloths from the Hang in There and the Slow Down and Enjoy Stamp Sets. The sloths in both of these stamp sets work so well together! I also added the balloon, birthday present, piece of cake, and little party hat from Lawn Fawn's Party Animal Stamp Set and a few leaves from the Flutter By Stamp Set. What I love so much about Lawn Fawn Stamps is the fact that so many images and stamp sets can work together so seamlessly! I decided that I wanted to create a shaker card for these little guys and inked up a piece of Bristol paper using Twisted Citron & Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink. This is my favorite paper to ink blend onto. I used a 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 Stitched Rectangle die by Lawn Fawn to give a stitched feel to my card ba…

Spooky August Mood Board

Hey there Crafty Friends! Davina here to share some more August Mood Board Inspiration. It is mid August and I’ve made my first Halloween card of the year for the Butterfly Reflections Ink Blog . I used a wonderfully cute and spooky set released last year by Hello Bluebird called Halloween Fun. I really love that BRI carries the Hello Bluebird brand and appreciate that the matching dies and individual cover plates are so reasonably priced because I always make sure to purchase the stamps and matching dies. Today’s card uses a soft and shadowy technique that I have been practicing, and I love the different aesthetic that it gives to my projects. Once again I’ve use the August Mood/Color Board, which s rich in beautiful jewel tones, but the outcome is completely different.

I wanted my card to be bold and bright, but at the same time give a soft and spooky twilight feel. And I think I’ve  accomplished my goal. Using the Gallery Frame #4 Coverplate die (which follows along with my desire …

Clean-and-simple Birthday Card

Hi everyone, Amy Copeland here with a guest design post for Butterfly Reflections, Ink.  I whipped up this clean-and-simple birthday card really quickly using some awesome dies from Lawn Fawn and Hello Bluebird.  I started my card with a piece of Distress Watercolor cardstock and die cut the sentiment out with the awesome Happy Birthday die from Hello Bluebird.  I love the subtle texture the watercolor cardstock brings to the card.  I backed the "HAPPY" word with a piece of Acetate using strong 1/8 " Double-Sided Tape, then built up a channel around the word "HAPPY" with Double-Sided Foam Tape, then sprinkled Studio Katia Mint Dream Crystals inside the channel and backed it with Lawn Fawn Peacock card stock.

I then cut a piece of Lawn Fawn Raspberry card stock with the "birthday" word and inlaid it into the card front using Liquid Glue.

I then got to work on the cupcake.  I die cut all of the components using the Stitched Cupcake die set from Lawn F…

Happy Birthday!

Hello, everyone! It's Cassie here, and I'm back to share a card I made using some of my favorite products. Stencils have been my go to lately for fun and colorful backgrounds. I thought they'd be fun for today's birthday card too! Let's jump right in.

I started with the My Favorite Things stencil called Lots of Heart. Using my Blueprint Sketch and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxides, I ink blended over the stencil to get a nice gradient of color. When I was done I used some of the ink to splatter over the top of the card as well. It reminded me of water splashing :)  I had already colored in these cute images from the Sea-prise!  stamp set, which can make cards go a lot faster if you're in a pinch. I love coloring while I'm watching tv, and then I've got a stock of colored images to use of my cards. It's a win-win! I adhered them down with foam tape once the card panel was dry. Next I stamped out the 'happy' from Lawn Fawn's Happy Happy Hap…

You're the Bee's Knees

Hey friends! Britney here with a card featuring Honey Bee Stamps Bee Hive for those who are the Bee’s Knees! I am just loving all of the bee sets this summer.  If you’re new to my blog posts, I like to start with building up my backgrounds first. I inked up my back panel with Tumbled GlassDistress Oxide and the MFT Mini Cloudstencil. For the front panel, I used the largest of the 3 Piece Hexagon Layering Background Stencils and Wild Honey Distress Oxide. I sprayed both backgrounds with Avery Elle Clear Shimmer Spray. After everything was dry, I used an oval die to cut the oval out my front panel.  I stamped my images with Gina K Amalgam Jet Black Inkand colored my images with my Copics. I used all of the images from the Bee Hive set and the branch from the Birds and the Bees set. I finished off my images by adding some highlights with a white gel pen. I used a black glaze pen on the eyes and a shimmer pen for the wings.  I used the coordinating dies to cut out my images. I popped the fro…

Whisking You Happy Birthday

Hello everyone! It's Ashley today with a birthday card I made for my awesome sister-in-law! She loves the Great British Baking Show so I created this cute scene with Hello Sweetums Baking Buddies!

I started by blending Distress Oxides in Milled Lavender and Seedless Preserves for my background, then splattered with watered down gold acrylic for a bit of shine. I used My Favorite Things Wonky Stitched Rectangles to cut the blended panel and attached it to an A2 piece of Lawn Fawn Fog cardstock.

I stamped images from Hello Sweetums Baking Buddies in Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink, making extra of the mice to stack up. I colored them in Copic markers and cut them out. I just love how cute those mice look all stacked up to reach the cake! I popped up the front row of ingredients with foam tape for a bit of dimension. All the smiling faces make such a happy scene!

For the sentiment, I added the word "birthday" from Hello Sweetums Yeti Set Go to one of the Baking Buddies sentiments.…

Sunshine and Friends

Hi Crafty Friends, Julianne here sharing a fun card filled with nothing but summer vibes. I fell in love with the MFT July release and needed everything. Does this happen to anyone else? I have mentioned before how much I love the Birdie Brown illustrations and the July release had two super cute stamp sets; Sunshine and Friends as well as the Drink up Sunshine. I used both stamp sets for my card today; Butterfly Reflections, Ink also has all the other great products My Favorite Things offers including their newest release if your interested. 
I started out by laying everything out on a slimline card base, I wanted to use as many of the images as possible so I needed a card that would allow me to fit them all in. With the MFT Swimming Pool Die-namic I traced around to determine where I wanted the pools (I wanted the card to feel like it was in the jungle, so would they be called springs) to determine where to put all the animals. Because the girl in the Drink Up Sunshine stamp set is b…
