Stay Cool!!!


Hello Friends Waleska here with a cool card to remind you to STAY COOL.. This Waffle Flower bear from the Stay Cool Stamp Set  looks so relaxed that everytime I use him on a card I wish I was him!


CARD DETAILS:

For the card today I wanted make a pattern on the card base, so I repeatedly stamped the watermelon from the stamp set for that, I die cut an oval from the Die-namics Stitched Oval Scallop Frames in the center to create a little scene with the cool bear, for the water and the background I used some of the new Oxide Ink colors Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers.


I colored the bear with markers and use Nuvo Crystal Drops Ebony Black for his bathing suit and to complete the background with the watermelons I use Nuvo Crystal Drops Carribean Ocean. I added a little bird and the sentiment to finish it up!


I hope you have a wonderful and cool day! Remember all the new products at the shop and the Lawn Fawn pre-order you can do!

Striped Doodle Flowers

Happy, happy hump day! Hope you all are having a GREAT week!

I made two cards this week using the same stamps; one monochromatic with Copics, the other soft and colorful with Zig Clean Color Markers. I stamped the watercolor background stamps on the main panel as well as the base card, the main panel is cut with MFT Blueprints and layered with fun foam.

The monochromatic flowers were stamped with Jet Black ink, colored with Copics and layered onto a partial stitched circle from MFT.



 

On the Zig card, I embossed the images with white embossing powder and layered onto a partial white doily. The sentiments are from Right at Home, Script Sayings, I used the Misti to stamp the sentiments so I could stamp multiple times for a solid impression, particularly since the one actually stamps on the doily.

Friends Like You Are Rare

Hello and welcome to Butterfly Reflections Ink!
This is Tanya from Studio 5380 here to share a sparkly shaker card with you...


I absolutely love this stamp set from Neat and Tangled!  It's called You're A Gem and there is a coordinating die set available which always makes creating your project a little easier and faster.

After coloring and die cutting these fun gems, I gave them all a bit of shimmer with a Clear Wink of Stella Brush Marker.  I love all the sparkle!


After creating the shaker portion of my card, I added lots of fun colored sequins.  I used several sequin mixes from Neat and Tangled including:  Pixie Dust, Peacock Feather and Mermaid Tail.


To add a little more dimension, I used Scotch Foam Mounting Tape to add my sparkly gems to my card base.  

This was such a fun card to put together.  Thanks so much for letting me share it with you today!  Have a great day and I'll see you soon.

Layered Stamping with Distress Oxides

Hi crafty friends!!
Kari with you to share this card featuring the Budding Thanks set from Altenew.  Their stamp sets, particular the layering sets are so beautiful, but they can be a bit intimidating.  I didn't let that stop me in purchasing this set, with its coordinating dies.  



There are many inks you could use to ink up these beautiful flowers, but I wanted to use Distress Oxide inks.  They are great for full coverage inking since there is a fusion of dye and pigment ink.  

I wanted to keep this card fairly clean and simple, because I wanted that flower to take center stage. 



For my sentiment, I used the set crafty friends also from Altenew.  I also wanted to an "ombre" look to the sentiment as well, so I used both the Worn Lipstick and Candied Apple Distress Oxide inks to achieve that look. I also stamped an additional leaf and die cut its coordinating die and popped it up to give the leaf a little dimension.

I die cut my main panel from MFT's Blueprints 27 die, and to finish the card off, I added some PPP Sparkling Clear Confetti sequins using Ranger Multi Matte Medium.  



Hope this inspires you today to get out your layered sets :)  Thanks for stopping by!!

Happy Birthday - I wobble!

Hello everyone,

I am excited to be back with an interactive card for your today.

I used a few stamp sets and lately I keep gravitating to MFT and Lawn Fawn.  I have a soft spot for Lawn Fawn.

I started out with a white panel and stamped the the pineapple background stamp from MFT with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink. I set that aside to dry while I worked on the adorable pineapple from Lawn Fawn.  I used my copics (Y02, Y13 & Y17 - YG 25 & YG67) to colour it and I die cut the sunglasses from Lawn Fawn black card stock. and popped it up with foam tape.


The background panel was dry so I took a LF dotted circle die and cut out the centre. I then took the same LF dotted circle dies and cut out a frame from some green card stock. I found some acetate and added that to the back of the panel and then added foam tape to create the well for the shaker goodies.  I dusted it with an anti static tool and added chunky glitter and some clear sequins from my stash.  I have tons of this that I never seem to use and these colours matched so I thought I would used them.  

I added the green diet circle from earlier and adhered it to the front panel. I took the banner dies from my stash and cut out from the same black card stock as the sunglasses and heat embossed the sentiment from another LF set.  I added a bit of foam tape to the back and added it to the card.  To finish off the card I added an action wobbler to the pineapple to give this card something special.  I added the front panel to the card base with foam tape and called it done. 

I tried to get a short video of this wobbling but it didn't work out. Sorry! :(

So Grapeful!

Hey Everybody!

It's Saturday again, which means I'm up on the design blog with another card.

A few weeks ago, I talked about coming up with some "template" type ideas to roll out when I wanted a simple card. I incorporated that idea into today's card.

I love a good pun on a card. I especially love the contrast of an artsy or classically colored card with a funny or snarky sentiment. It's just kind of....jarring, for lack of a better word. And I think that's so fun when you open a card and see that.


I began by using one of the images from the Memory Box We Gouda Together stamp set and stamped it repeatedly over my paper with my favorite black ink. I then broke out my Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens and picked out some purples and went to work coloring these grape images. 



I then stamped the sentiment from the set on to a piece of purple cardstock in Versamark ink and white heat embossed it. I mounted it on a piece of patterned paper before mounting the whole strip on to my card panel. 

I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Stackables die to cut a stitched edge around my card base, and after that was finished, I glued my grape card panel on to my base and called it a day!

This card was very easy to put together and I love stamp sets like this one with lots of smaller images that you can combine or use by themselves as a repeated background. 

Thanks for stopping by today and reading about my card!

Happy Saturday!

Say it with Florals

Hi there! Crystal here with a very floral card featuring the newest release from Pink Fresh Studios!


This set is absolutely gorgeous and really fun to work with. The various petals allow for layering and the variety of sentiments are awesome. 

To make this card I began by trimming a yellow card stock to be my background. I stamped the sentiment in black ink. Next, the white card stock was die cut with Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Borders Die.
Now to the fun stamping part: All flowers were stamped with the following Altenew Crisp Inks in alternating order. Buttercream, Warm Sunshine, Caramel Toffee, Paper Bag. The leaves were stamped in Olive and Moss. 



I simply love one layer cards as they don't require extra postage. This pattern of florals reminds me of sweet summer days.

That is all for me today, I hope you enjoy the weekend and get some crafty time!

Crystal
