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
