Clean And Simple Pops Of Colors with Guest Designer Erica

Hi BRI fans! It’s Erica guesting on the blog today, and I have a CAS but colourful card to share with you all.  I have used the Hero Arts & Ink Blot Shop collaboration stamp set, Please Deliver, because it’s freaking adorable! I did misjudge the placement a little bit but oh well. It is a handmade card after all, not a Hallmark printed one, right?First off, I stamped up the pencils along the bottom of a 5.5”x4.25” piece of Neenah #110 card stock, with Copic friendly ink. I used Picket Fence Studios Black Hybrid ink, but you can use whatever Copic safe ink you have. My Mini MISTI made sure I got a good solid image too. Then I flipped it over, and stamped it on the other side too. Using SO MANY Copics, I coloured in the pencils in a rainbow order. Below you can see the notes I made as I went along. It’s not overly tidy but it was more for a reference point than something to keep. I did mark the fifth pencil’s colour down upside down, it’s supposed to be R59, R46 and R29.

Heffy Doodle You Go, Gull!

Good morning, everyone!  Amy Copeland here, guest designing for Butterfly Reflections, Ink today.  I used some super cute goodies from Heffy Doodle today, primarily the adorable You Go, Gull stamp set and Coordinating dies.  I started out by ink blending Lawn Fawn Peacock ink with an ink blending brush over the Lawn Fawn Cloudy stencil.  I then die cut the panel with the largest Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frames die, then die cut two more panels with the same die out of Lawn Fawn Paper Bag and Lawn Fawn Peacock card stock.  I then used the Heffy Doodle Breaking Waves Border Dies to cut a wave out of the Peacock card stock and another die in that set to cut the sandy border out of the Paper Bag cardstock.  I cut one final frame out of Lawn Fawn Storm Cloud cardstock and set all of those pieces aside.

Next, I stamped all of my images in the You Go, Gull set and colored them in with Copic markers.  I die cut them out with the coordinating dies and then used Nuvo Deluxe Adhesiv…

Happy Birthday Party Animal!

Hello friends! Gladys here and I'm excited to be back on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog to share another card I made. I combined a lot of products from Mama Elephant so I hope you like it!
I started off coloring the Stackable Cuties and Stackable Friends stamp set using copic markers. I cut them out using their coordinating dies. These sets have various animals you can find in the jungle and on a farm, it even has a unicorn!! For this card I decided to use only the pet animals from each set. I had an idea to use the Ornate House grid as a barn house. To make it look like a barn I cut it out using Lawn Fawn woodgrain cardstock and inked the edges using distress oxide in ground espresso. I cut the house again in Neenah 80lb cardstock and inked the cutouts in distress oxide dried marigold. I adhered the house on a blue cardstock then cut out grass to ground a few of the animals. I foam mounted each of the animals into the window cutouts. 
I stamped the sentiment from the Stackable …

Hope Your Day is Filled with Adventure!

Hi everyone, Ashley here and I am so excited to be back on the Butterfly Reflections, Ink blog this month! Today, I'm sharing a fun, magical card featuring some of Lawn Fawn's newest stamps. This card is also inspired by the colour board for the current Lawn Fawnatics challenge. The colour board is filled with deep purples and blues, as well as bright yellow and orange. It was fun to combine these colours in a way I wouldn't have thought of before!

To start, I blended the background using Distress Oxide inks in the following colours, in order from interior to exterior of the circular blend: Squeezed LemonadeScattered StrawPicked RaspberrySeedless PreservesWilted VioletChipped SapphireI made a simple mask using a piece of scrap paper and a circle die. I blended Squeezed Lemonade into the centre circle. I then covered over that circle with the circle part of the mask, and blended outwards in a circular motion using the above listed colours. I made sure to blend back and forth …

Open Design Team Call for Fall/Early Winter 2020

Hello, hello. What a year it has been, huh?!  I have to admit that these past few months have been extremely challenging. Between the kids getting out of school in mid March, having to close the shop for 3 months and just hoping I can make it through each month, it's taken a lot out of me. I skipped the last DT call because I just couldn't focus and my AMAZING DT have filled in for those couple of months. I have been very lax in sharing their projects, but I am really trying to get back on track and am so, SO grateful for them! That being said, I figured I should put the call out for the next term which will run from September through December. Do you LOVE FALL?! (It's my absolute FAVORITE!!!) Does Christmas do it for you?! If YES, this is the term for you! I am looking for 5 new Design Team members to join the team. You are only required to create one card per week and share via social media 2-3 times per week. I do accept international applications, but you would be requi…

August BRIMoodboard with Davina

Hello my colorful friends! Davina here, using the August BRIMoodboard, and Avery Elle stamps. I really love the jewel tone colors of the current Moodboard and I wanted to let them shine. I have been hoarding so many adorable Avery Elle stamp sets that I haven’t had the chance to use, so I decided to go ahead and dig in. The Fairy Happy  Stamp set was perfect for this gorgeous color palette.  I started by cutting a piece of white cardstock using some Lawn Fawn Cross-Stitch layers. Then I stamped a navy starry sky using the Avery Elle Starry Scene and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink. Once I stamped it several times and achieved even coverage, I splattered some glittery and white ink onto the stamped image.  Next, I stamped my images onto Neenah solar white classic crest, then colored them with copic markers in shades of the Moodboard colors. I tried to get a lot of variation using only the four color families, and only added skin and hair tones. After die cutting the images I mounted the 3…

Cute and Simple Congrats Card

Hi everyone! I'm super excited to be back on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog today, sharing a card I made! I was in need of a baby card and I decided to pull together some of my favorite brands and create a cute and simple card. Let's jump right in. I started with some blue card stock and used the new Heffy Doodle stencil Head in the Clouds. Instead of ink blending with a stencil, like I normally would, I used my white gel pen and outlined the openings of the clouds. I thought this was a fun chance of pace! I also added some highlight lines on each cloud to add some detail. It was super easy to do but adds a nice touch :) 
I used the Over Coffee ink by Catherine Pooler to stamp out some images by Lawn Fawn. I love this ink for stamping as well as for using with Copics! It always works SO well! I stamped out a couple images from the Really High Five stamps and colored them in. I fussy cut them out and adhered them to the card with some glue dots. Then I found some twine in m…
