Rain or shine Hello Bluebird

Hi everyone!! Here Laura, today I show you this card made with the clear Stamps " Rain or shine " of Hello Bluebird . Around here these days it has rained a lot so I prepared this card full of color!!  I first stamped the animals with Archival ink black and then painted them with Copic markers. The details are made with Micronpigma and gel white pen!  😉 For the background I used the " Partly cloudy die " of Hello Bluebird but I removed the structure (which I used on another card😃) and I kept the clouds, which I colored with the distress oxide inks .  To finish, I placed some raised raindrops and the sentiment is made with a Lawn Fawn paper. I hope you like it! Remember that you can find all these products and many more in the Butterflyreflectionink store !!  Thanks for your attention and see you next week with another post!

Sweet Bitty Bears Fall Card

Hi crafty friends! I am so excited to share this card for a sweet friend made with the cutest squishy  bitty bears from MFT !  I colored the bears with Copic markers (listed below) and I had to give a nod to Harry Potter with that Gryffindor scarf! After cutting the bears out with the coordinating dies , I stamped out the trees from MFT's Modern Trees with Lawn Fawn inks ( artichoke , cilantro , pumpkin spice , chili pepper , sunflower , and walnut ) and cut out the trees with coordinating dies . I cut out grass pieces using landscape dies from Mama Elephant , ink blended them with Distress Inks (crushed olive and mowed lawn), and splattered with mowed lawn Distress Ink. I created an autumnal sky with Distress inks (scattered straw, spiced marmalade, abandoned coral) and splattered carved pumpkin Distress Ink onto the sky. You can definitely achieve the same effect using Distress Oxide Inks as well. I stamped out the sentiment with Versafine onyx black ink  (my favorite ink for s

Christmas Huggy Bears!

Can I start off by saying how cute these bears are? Kelly here and for todays card Im using Sunny Studios Bear Hugs.   I started off stamping the bears then masking them, then I stamped the ice. I just freehand cut a mask to separate the water and the Background straight across and I used a watercolor wash stencil for the outer framed area.  I ink blended Distress inks in Blueprint sketch, wilted violet & Black Soot for the top. The bottom (water) I used Stormy Sky and Hickory Smoke. I grabbed a post it and used that to blend on top to get some rippled type effects.  Once all my blending was done I removed my masks from the bears and the ice. I colored them with Copics . Im not the best at coloring so I just added some simple coloring.  I stamped and die cut my sentiments and added cardstock underneath for dimension.  I used my trusty white gel pen to my bears fur and for specs in the sky. I also added a glitter pen for stars and ripples in the water and s

Singing in the Rain Card!

Hi there crafters! Linda here today with a fun new card! Today I'm sharing an adorable one layer card, created with the amazing  Singing in the Rain  stamp set from Hello Bluebird Stamps! I started this card with a white card base that I created from white cardstock in A2 size. I then added a front panel to my card, for which I diecutted white cardstock with a stitched rectangle die. Because I wanted this card to be just a one layer card, I started stamping my images first. To get depth into my card, I stamp the images I'd like to be up front first and then mask them with masking paper. I then stamped a cloud an a duck, which then will fall right behind my first stamped images. I also masked these, so I could start blending. I used  Chipped Sapphire ,  Blueprint Sketch ,  Mermaid Lagoon  and  Tumbled Glass  Distress Oxide ink from Ranger. I added loads of splatters and after removing my masking paper, I coloured the images with Copic Markers. To finish the card with, I stamped

Pinkfresh Studio Flowers Card with the BRI Moodboard

 Hi Crafty Friends! Stephanie here with a card inspired by the BRI September Moodboard!  I just love these colors! As soon as I saw them, I knew they'd be perfect for a flower card.  To make this slimline card I used Pinkfresh Studio's beautiful Miss Your Smile stamp set. That big flower is just so pretty! I stamped it with Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink and then heat embossed it with Ranger's Clear Embossing Powder so that the ink would look bold and not smear. After that, I used the coordinating Miss Your Smile Layering Stencils . I've never used layering stencils before but they were so easy to use. I'll definitely be using them again! I used Distress Oxides in abandoned coral , worn lipstick , and cracked pistachio to ink the flower and leaves.  I heat embossed the sentiment with Ranger's white embossing powder  on black cardstock. I topped it off with some metallic watercolor  and sequins. Thanks so much for checking out my card and don't forget to stop by

Nutty Squirrels Fall Card

Hi crafty friends! I'm back with a nutty card for a nutty friend! (And I mean nutty in a good way!) I love these cute, happy squirrels from Let's Go Nuts by Lawn Fawn . And even though I don't get to experience the beautiful fall colors where I live, I love colorful fall leaves... At least I can stamp and color fall leaves for this card! I stamped out the images from Let's Go Nuts and the tree branch from Jump for Joy . I used Copic markers (listed below) to color and then I cut out the images with the coordinating dies .  To create the background, I used speckled egg Distress Ink and the Lawn Fawn cloudy stencil to create subtle clouds. I also splattered more speckled egg ink. For the grass, I used the MFT grassy fields die to cut out some grass and added color using Distress Inks (fossilized amber, crushed olive, mowed lawn). The frame was cut from several layers of cardstock using the Backdrop from Lawn Fawn . The top frame was cut from Lawn Fawn Knit Picky patte
