Happy Belated Birthday Card by Sara

Hi BRI friends, Sara here! I am back with a new card, inspired by the June BRI Mood Board Challenge . When I first saw it, I didn’t know what to do but then…I saw an Hawaiian shirt on a tv programme and I had my inspiration! It had black, blue, coral and yellow leaves, and it was perfect for the BRIMOOD board! LOL So, this is my inspiration! I looked through my crafty stash and this Sunny Studio – Silly Sloths stamp came out: they were perfect for the scene I had in mind. I stamped many of the critters of the set, I only did a bit of masking on the upper left sloth that lies on the other sloth’s back. I also stamped some hibiscus. I then hand drew many different tropical leaves, to set my scene. I started to color the background, with a light yellow: I only wanted a yellow gradient tone on the bottom part. I then colored the sloths and the leaves. As I wanted to respect the BRIMOOD board, I mixed dark blue, teal and yellow. And I love because I also get some green shades, mixing the

Have a magical day card with Annemarijn

Hi crafty friends, Today I'm back on the blog with a new card with cute fairies. I'm really into a magical theme at the moment so I chose to make something with fairies and a rainbow. I'm going to tell you how I made this card. First I stamped the fairies from the fairy dance stamp set from hello bluebird and cut them. Next I colored them with copic markers  and made some accents using a white pen . For the wings of the fairies I used some prisma glitter with quickie glue pen .  Next I die cut all pieces from the stitched rainbow dies  from lawn fawn cardstock . The puffy cloud backdrop  I die cut from the watercolor wishes paper pad. The big clouds from the stitched rainbow die I die cut four times and the smaller cloud from the foursquare backdrop I die cut two times from white cardstock.  Next I adhered everything together with foam squares for some extra dimension and I put some purple and pink sequins on the card. Last I stamped the sentiment on the cloud and tha

Surprise party with Peter

Hello everyone! It's Peter here again, ready to deliver some crafty inspiration! I made a frame card again, but this time I changed it up a little. I didn't really made mini scenes, but just used the frame as a fun element on the card. I picked out an old time favorite: Party Animal . It's one of the sets that made me fall in love with Lawn Fawn long time ago. I also added Holiday Party Animal in the mix, so I had a different critter for every window of the frame. Before I started coloring, I picked a patterned paper from my stash to decide on my color scheme. Then I stamped everything out and colored the images in with my Copic markers . I picked a matching colored cardstock for the frame and two for the sentiment; one for the Scripty Happy and one for the 'birthday' piece. You can cut the background paper to size with your paper trimmer, but I'm lazy so I used my Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables . If you would like to match it exactly in size, you c


Hello crafty friends! It's Veronica here and today I'm on the blog with a super funny shaker card. I first stamped my images from the Travel Plans Stamp Set by My Favorite Things on a piece of Transotype paper, I colored them all with my Copic Ciao Markers and finally fuzzy cut them.   For the background I stamped the City Block Background Stamp , again by My Favorite Things, with my Versamark Ink and embossed it with white powder. Then, I ink blended my panel with Distress Oxide inks in Dried Marigold , Speckled Egg and Blueprint Sketch .     Finally, I die cut a window from a new white card stock panel where I stamped my sentiment from the same stamp set and I added a bunch of sequins and glass sand. I assembled everything with a piece of acetate and some foam. Hope you like my card and see you next week! From Italy with love, Veronica

Doggy Boba Tea with Leontine

Hello again! Today I wanted to share an all die cut card with you. And I didn't attach it to a card base, but made sure the back was a mirror image of the front. That way it really looks like the dog is peeking through the circle with his boba tea. I used book buddy bear and dog on some paper bag cardstock . I used black licorice cardstock for the eyes and snout. To create the background I used some white cardstock and the cloud nine die. I used a circle from stacked circles to cut a hole in the top of the card panel. Once I had two identical panels I inked them up with some salvaged patina and shaded lilac . I used liquid stardust mixed with water to create some fun shimmery splatters on the ink. I left those two panels to dry, and once they were I glued them together. Now the boba shaker combo was a little trickier to make. I used pearlescent vellum for the front and back of the cup, acetate for the window and lid, white cardstock for the whipped cream, ballet slippe

I miss your hugs

 Hello crafty friends!!!! Silvia's here and I'm so happy to be back on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog today! For my card I started cutting a white rectangle panel (4,25" x 5,5") , I ink blended it with Lawn Fawn's "Cloudy" stencil and salvaged patina Distress Oxide ink and I added some texture splattering with clean water, tone on tone ink and a bit of Indian gold Nuvo mousse (both loosened with water). I then die cut two grassy and one cloudy borders with Hello Bluebird "Grassy Knoll" dies (that I ink blended them with mowed lawn , twisted citron and rustic wilderness Distress Oxide inks) and a tree with Lawn Fawn's "Lift the Flap Tree Backdrop" die (that I ink blended with pumice stone and black soot Distress Oxide inks). I stamped images from the "Happy Hugs" stamp set, I colored them with alcohol markers and I fussy cut them.  For the sentiment, I die cut the "hugs" scripty from the "Long
