Spin Me Around for the Surprise Inside

Hey friends! Britney here featuring a card with a fun surprise…a Turner Surprise. Mama Elephant’s Turner Surprise Creative Cuts and Circle of Friends stamp set will be featured on this card.  Starting with my background, I cut a sheet of rainbow paper from the Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow paper pack using the largest of the Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangle dies. I like how it leaves a nice white frame around the card. I cut the turner handle piece using a scrap of that same rainbow paper. I cut my scalloped circle out of Lawn Fawn No. 2 Pencil cardstock.I stamped my sentiments using Lawn Fawn Embossing Ink and used white embossing powder on the background and the scalloped circle. Doing this kind of stamping is always easier before everything is adhered together.  I inked up my images on smooth white cardstock usingGina K Black Amalgam Ink  and colored them with my Copics. I used the other circle from the Turner Surprise Creative Cuts to cut out my Circle of Friends. I added highligh…

You Make Me Smile

Hello everyone! It's Ashley with a sweet card inspired by this month's mood board! I just love this color palette! It reminds me of fruity sherbet - yum!

I started by making a Distress Oxide blended background with the featured colors. I used Worn Lipstick, Tattered RoseMustard Seed, and Cracked Pistachio. It ended up a bit more intense than I was hoping for, so I softened it by adding a piece of vellum die cut with Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Stackables on top. 

I grabbed several Hello Bluebird sets and stamped the images I wanted in my favorite black ink, Lawn Fawn Jet Black. I used the amazing flowers in Fairy Garden, some critters from Garden Friends, and the adorable mice are from the new Field Mice set. I colored them in with my Copics, mostly with colors as close as I could get to the mood board color palette, and added a few white gel pen highlights. 

I finished the card with a sentiment from Hello Bluebird Rainbow Script stamped with black StazOn. I added gems fro…


Hi crafty friends and Happy Wednesday, Julianne here bringing you a beach inspired card using some new Hello Bluebird products. If you are anything like me you love this newer company, the stamp sets they come out with are just so adorable and this month was no different. 
This card was so fun to make, with my MISTI I stamped out the Seaside Girls Stamp Set, aren't these little girls just adorable? I just love both girls and the adorable seagull with the sea shell. I stamped everything out with VersaFine Black Ink, and colored in with copic markers. Once I had everything colored I die cut them with their coordinating Seaside Girls Dies

Next I started working on the background, I used the Ocean Scene Die that was also in the June release. I colored in the water area with B00, B000, B0000 and the sand I used Y23, E33.
Instead of using the clouds that come in the scene I used the MFT Cloud Stencil as well as Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide to make the clouds. In the clouds I stamped a se…

Have a Sparkly Day!!

Hi crafty peeps! Heather here with you today sharing a fun Magical Rain Shaker Card that I created! I learned how to make these types of cards HERE (< that is the YouTube link) from my crafty friend, Laura, and they really are tons of fun! The first one you make will be a challenge - but after that you'll be a pro! FYI there is a new awesome die set called Falling From the Clouds by My Favorite Things that can really make creating a card like this so much easier - the best part - Vanessa has it stocked in the Butterfly Reflections, Ink. Shop!! For my card I used a ton of Lawn Fawn products! I started by coloring and diecutting the adorable Fairy Friends stamp set, plus the adorable little teeny fairies from the A Little Sparkle stamp set! Next I pulled out my Distress Inks and inked a few pieces of Bristol Paper. The top of the scene was created using with Peacock Feathers and Evergreen Bough and the bottom panel (the sky) was created using Spun Sugar, Milled Lavende…

Big Bug Hugs with Heffy Doodle

Hey there crafty friends, Davina here for the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog today, sharing some summer colored hugs. Did you see the beautiful Mood/Color board last week that was posted on the blog?! It was gorgeous and I will have to make a million projects with these colors.

So today I am sharing a slimline card that is inspired by the July mood board, and using my first purchase of Heffy Doodle Stamps. I’ve been trying very hard to limit my purchasing to certain brands. But I am not being held accountable to anyone but myself, so my plans got off track. And I’m not sorry.
I used an adorable set called Big Bug Hugs and their matching dies, and the large mushroom stamp and die from Gnome Matter What, to create this card. Both sets are currently available in the BRI online store so if you like it please go check it out, I created links for you.
I cut two panels of Bristol smooth cardstock down to 3x6 inches. I used a grassy hill die to cut one almost in half (just a little less than …

Rainbow Happy Birthday Cards with Erica and Studio Katia goodies!

Hi guys! Erica here!

Today I have the pleasure of being a guest designer here on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog!

I have two bright and happy birthday cards using the It's Your Birthday stamp from Studio Katia. Both are heat embossed, the backgrounds are faux water coloured and both are sprinkled with Studio Katia sequins.

To start with I cut out two panels of water colour card stock, and on these I dragged mini Distress Ink cubes in thick lines. With a wet wide paint brush, I blended the colours together to create the faux water colour look. You can get a similar look with any kind of water based mini ink cubes. It doesn't have to be Distress Inks.

These I set aside to dry. They had to be absolutely bone-dry before I could carry on with the next step: Heat embossing. Even with an anti-static tool, I find that the powder gets stuck in places you don't want it in, if the panel isn't dry enough.

The sentiment, Happy Birthday To You, was heat embossed onto the panels …

One-Layer Stamping - Rose Builder Set

Hey there, my stamping friends!

It's Kelly Martin here!

Hope you all are having a fantastic weekend and getting lots of opportunities for crafting!

Today, I'm sharing 2 different cards that were really simple to put together. Sometimes, I just really enjoy getting back to the one-layer cards and simple stamping. I can easily mass produce these and I also get to use a bunch of different color inks, which is one of my favorite things!

The process behind these cards was extremely simple. I used the WPlus9 Rose Builder stamp set and my Catherine Pooler inks and just stamped away! Although this is a layering set, the images are EXTREMELY easy to line up--just line up the centers, as the center "swirl" is in the same place on every single individual layer stamp!

Here are some tips for doing one layer floral stamping like this:
1. Incorporate multiple shades of green for your leaves. This will add some visual interest and cause your eye to travel all over the card.

2. Stamp…
