Yo Ho Ho

Hey crafty friends, it's Christy here. Today I've got a super duper fun card for your guys featuring the new Neat & Tangled Yo Ho Ho stamp set. When I was a little girl, I used to pretend I was a Pirate Princess, so this set just spoke so much to my inner child. I actually created TWO cards because I wanted to use every image. The boy version is on my blog, if you'd like to check that out. :)

I colored my images with Copic markers and die cut them with the matching dies, then combined them with the perfect papers -- Echo Park's Pirate's Life. Aren't they just a match made in heaven? I die cut my focal panel with the MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangle Die-namics, then popped it up with some foam tape over my card base. As a finishing touch, I added a few Pretty Pink Posh 4mm and 6mm Clear Droplets with some Ranger Multi Medium Matte

I also stamped an additional sentiment on the inside using Lawn Fawn Walnut Ink, and added the adorable image of the fish jumping out of his bowl. Too cute! He wants to be a pirate too! ;) 

Do you struggle to use patterned paper on your cards? It's one of my favorite things to do, and in the video tutorial I share some tips on how to combine them and use the colors and prints as inspiration for your coloring. I hope you enjoy it!

Sweet and Simple

Hi, friends! Rebekah here today to show you a card made with super sweet products from Pretty Pink Posh!

I don't know about you but there have been times when I sit down to make something and I almost feel stressed. I feel like as if every card has to be an involved process and has to outshine the last card I made. Well, here is a lesson in relaxing! Some cards can be beautiful and yet simple to make and still come from the heart!

This card took less then 30 minutes to make and it even includes colored images and a shaker!  I kept my coloring  and design to a minimum and I love the results!

First, I colored my images form the Pretty Pink Posh Friends Forever Stamp Set and cut them out leaving a small border. Then, on a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of card stock I die cut a small heart using the Stitched Heart Dies from MFT.. I also stamped my sentiment and colored a small shadow under where i will place my little girl images. I added Foam Mounting Tape to the panel and around the heart. I added Springtime Sequins Mix from Pretty Pink Posh to the inside of the heart and a piece of light pink to the back of the heart. I then added the entire panel to a bright pink card base.

That's it! A fast and sweet card, made with love but without any stress! Only fun!

Please be sure to check out My Blog and My Instagram for more projects using products from Butterfly Reflections Ink!

Big Top Birthday - Neat & Tangled

Hello, Nicky back with you today with this card using the Big Top Birthday stamp and die set by Neat & Tangled.

The panel of my card was cut using the largest die from Blueprints #25 by My Favorite Things.   I created a focal point by ink blending with Distress Ink in a light pink.  I die cut another panel with the same die and then used the medium sized wave die from Ocean Wave Borders by Lawn Fawn to cut 4 lengths of curtains.

I ink blended 3 of these curtain pieces in a minty green and one in a pale blue and then applied them to the scene with dimensional foam tape.

I then stamped the characters and other components with Ranger Archival Ink and watercolour painted them using Clean Color Real Brush Markers by Zig.  They were die cut and applied to the scene with yet more dimensional foam tape.  The final touch was a little Wink of Stella here and there for a subtle shimmer and then I set about highlighting certain points with my Uni-Ball Signo white pen, including some tiny flecks in the pink background just to break it up a little.

Such a fun stamp set, I'm so in love with it and its possibilities.  Thank you for stopping by the Butterfly Reflections Ink Blog today, I hope you enjoyed my card, I will be back again next Tuesday and in the meantime you can follow me on Instagram #nickynoocards, Pinterest and Facebook for this and many more of my card designs.  Have a wonderful week!

Spring Flowers with Lawn Fawn

Happy first day of Spring crafty friends! Kim with you on this Monday morning and I am sharing spring flowers with happy everything wishes with products that can be found in the Butterfly Reflections Ink shop!

When the new Lawn Fawn release was launched, like many of you, I wanted the whole release especially the fun critters! This Fab Flowers set however is probably one of my favorite Lawn Fawn sets ever! I stamped my flowers using my Misit in various Lawn Fawn and Hero Arts inks. I used LF Butter, LF Peachy Keen, LF Guava, LF Minty Fresh, LF Merman, LF Celery Stick, HA Fresh Lawn and LF Freshly Cut Grass I then die cut my images with the coordinating Fab Flowers dies.

I started placing my flowers and decided to die cut two panels the yellow in the back is from the Lawn Fawn Watercolour Wishes 6x6 paper pad. I die cut both panels from the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangles (largest of the small rectangle set) and started placing my flowers in the bottom corner.  I then decided to die cut one of the three Happy, Happy, Happy Lawn Cuts  and chose the "Everything" sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Happy, Happy, Happy stamp set (such a versatile sentiment set). I white embossed the sentiment on Lawn Fawn Narwal paper placed all my sentiments and finished it off with some Pretty Pink Posh Clear Droplets both the 4mm and 6mm.

I added some dot detail with both my white and black gell pens.  I am happy with the way this springy card turned out. Makes me happy to think we shall have flowers, grass and full-on spring soon enough!

All of these products can be found in the shop, if anything is out of stock sign-up to the "notify me" in the product description. Vanessa is very quick to replenish and this helps to know what products are on wish lists!

Have a great week!

Hugs, Smile, Friend

Hello everyone,

Coralynn here today and I'm excited to share a quick card with you.  I recently got the MFT Words for Friends die and it came the way it's shown below.  It was nestled nicely together so I thought it would look neat if I die cut it that way.  

I took an A2 sized card base and die cut the word dies and took a piece of patterned paper from my stash and added it to the inside of the card.  I then took the adorable owl that I coloured the other day and thought she would fit perfect perched on top of the sentiment. 

I added the owl to the card with an action wobbler as I thought the card needed just a bit more but I wanted the owl and sentiment to take the stage on the card so I thought the wobbler would be just enough. 
Don't forget to stop by the shop.  The shop is full of wonderful goodies!  

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Coralynn  :)

Elphie Selfie

Happy Saturday! 

Today I'm sharing stamps and dies from Elphie Selfie

This adorable stamp set includes lots of critters (my favorite!) that I stamped, die cut and colored with Copics. The coordinating dies make cutting these cute images out so easy. For the elephant's spray I decided to do rainbow hearts. I used Distress Oxide inks for the hearts. These inks are so creamy and they float on top of that paper making blending super simple and fun. 

I used Distress Oxide Peeled Paint for the background and finished my card with a sentiment from Elphie Selfie and Clear Droplets

Thanks for joining me today! Have a wonderful weekend!
