  Happy Friday everyone! Gladys here and I'm excited to share this spooky card with you today. Alright alright there's nothing spooky about it at all. But can I just say that Hello Bluebird keeps coming out with the cutest critter stamp sets out there. Hello!! Just take all my monies! Hahaha!  If you would like to learn how I made this card please keep reading.   First I used a circle die to cut from Bristol smooth card stock. Then I blended salty ocean, blueprint sketch and black soot distress oxide inks . I then splattered some water with a brush. I also used  perfect pearls to make the starry background. Next I colored the images from the Hello Bluebird August release called Halloween Party . It comes with a few adorable critters dressed up in their Halloween costume. For this card I decided to only used the racoon, a pumpkin, and some bats. I borrowed a few other images from other stamps: the moon from an older release called Farmyard Little Bits , the small

You're Furtastic

Hello, Butterfly Reflections Ink friends! It's Cassie here from Creatively Cass, and I'm so happy to be back on the BRI blog to share a card I made with you. One of my fave things about being back on the blog is getting a chance to use all the goodies I purchased from Vanessa in the shop. There aren't enough hours in the day! Today I made a card using a stamp set that has been calling my name from The Greeting Farm. Isn't this so bright and fun?! I just love those little ladies and their kitten friends. I started the card by stamping the center girl from Hey Pretty Kitty Stamp . I made a mask for her and then stamped her two friends next to her with MFT's Extreme Black ink because it is Copic friendly. Then I colored them in with some really simple Copic combos. I wanted this little trio to really pop so I used the Heffy Doodle Clover Frame Dies to cut them out. I used a couple gray and tan copics to create a ground, but for the sky I ink blended Broken Chi

Hello lovelies and welcome to my last DT project, it's Mona here! Today I am showing you a thank you card what I made for Vanessa. I am in love with Lawn Fawn stamps, this time I mixed a lot from them hope you will like it. :) I started making the card with massive masking. You can find my previous masking tutorial here: Happy Mail. This time I used these Lawn Fawn stamps: Winter Unicorn , Easter Party , Fairy Friends , Frosty Fairy Friends , Party Animal , Beary Happy Holidays , Hay There , Beam Me Up , Baaah Humbug , You Are Claw Some , Elphie Selphie, Meow You Doin ' and colored them with my Copic Markers.  When the coloring was done I added some highlight with the  Uni-Ball Signo White  pen. Next I stamped to my card base the "Thank you fairy much" text with Versamark Watermark Stamp Pad then I heat embossed with Altenew Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder . When it was done I cut it out with Craft Knife. The next step was the backgrou

Hey crafty friends.... Heather here to share another mini album....I know, I know, I have been on a mini album kick lately...and actually, I have a whole container full of pictures and ideas for all of the mini albums I want to make....I will be done with that list in a few years! :)  This mini album features the Pink Paislee Auburn Lane Collection and includes all of my favorite memories made during the fall season!   Before I get in to the details and pictures...I am sad to say this will be my last design team post, but I want to share my gratitude for the opportunity Vanessa provided me by accepting me as part of the Butterfly Reflections Ink design team.    It has been so much fun and a dream come true! OK...enough with the mushy stuff and on to the crafty stuff!   This mini album was definitely a labor of love, but totally worth it in the end...I started with matting my photos and planning my pages with the 6x8 paper pad including the cover and back.  I decided to do

Put some ZIPPITY in your DOO-DAH DAY!

Hi there, this is Tanya from Studio 5380. How do you add a bit of ZIPPITY to your DOO-DAH DAY?  I don't know about you, but coffee always works for me! So do adorable products from Cas-ual Friday, Lawn Fawn and Doodlebug! I used some fabulous stamps and dies to create this card including the following: Cas-ual Fridays "To Go Cup" Cas-ual Fridays "Cup of Coffee" Cas-ual Fridays "Coffee Talk" The sunflower is from Lawn Fawn's "Happy Harvest" stamp set.  I also used the coordinating die set and gave the center a bit of sparkle with a clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen. I also added a few dots of Aztec Gold Nuvo Glitter Accents to the center of my sunflower. The printed papers and sprinkless are from Doodlebug and I love the pretty fall colors. That's about it for me today. Thanks so much for stopping by - I hope you have a Zippity Doo-Dah Day!

Lawn Fawn--Summer Reveal Wheel Scene Card

Good morning, everyone, Amy Copeland here with my final project as part of the Butterfly Reflections, Ink Design Team.  I can't believe it's over--time sure flies when you are having fun!  Hopefully you will see me again, though, for some guest posts in the future.  :)     I decided to go out with a bang and use products from my all-time favorite stamp company, Lawn Fawn --hurry on over to the shop, because they just released their Fall/Winter 2018 release today and it's AWESOME!  :)   I used the Reveal Wheel  for the first time and this card was SO fun to make!  I started out by creating the background panel--I cut the Reveal Wheel background panel out of Moonstone cardstock and then another panel out of Cilantro cardstock.  I then used a die from the Simple Stitched Hillside Border  set to create a sloping hill from my green panel.   I used the Reveal Wheel Speech Bubble Add-On die to create the sentiment window on the blue and green panels.  It's r

Home for the Holidays with Pinkfresh Studios

Hi everyone! I can't believe this is my last blog post as part of the Butterfly Reflections, Ink design team! I've had so much fun over the last few months being a part of this team and I'm sad to see it come to an end. I know Vanessa will pick and amazing team to take over and I can't wait to see all their creations. For today's card, I'm getting into the holiday spirit with the latest release from  Pinkfresh Studio . I was obsessed with the  Cityscape Die  from the moment I first saw it. I used it with the  Home for the Holidays Stamp Set  to make the sweetest little Christmas scene. They also have a  Day in the City Stamp Set  which goes with the  Cityscape Die  for every day cards without a holiday flare. I started with cutting the  Cityscape Die  out of Bristol Smooth card stock since I knew I was going to be doing some ink blending over the die cut panel. I then stamped all the images using my  MISTI  to precisely stamp the buildings, bann
