Hello, crafty friends! Its Rebekah here today, bringing you this sweet card using stamps and dies from Neat and Tangled!



I started off by adding the Nuvo Glimmer Paste to a sheet of soft yellow cardstock, allowing it to dry about an hour and then cut out the heart shape from the Floral Heart Die by Neat and Tangled. The Glimmer Paste is so cool! Its easy to apply and looks amazing! It comes in a bunch of colors, too!

I then die cut a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card panel with the Blueprints 25 die set from My Favorite Things. This gives a nice, pretty stitched edge to the card which I just love! I placed the Floral Heart Die in the center of the panel and ran it again threw my die cutter again.



 I colored the images in the Cottontail Cuties stamp set and cut them out using the Cottontail Cuties Dies.

I added  foam tape to the back of the card panel with the heart cut in the center and placed in on a card base. I then placed the glittered heart in the center.

I arranged the colored images around the heart and stamped the sentiment in gray ink on a fishtail banner from the My Favorite Things Blueprints 25. I totally recommend all of the blueprints die sets! They include a great variety of dies and are by far my most used dies! You can find them by clicking here!


I embellished my card using sequins from Taylored Expressions and I added Nuvo Crystal Crops in Gloss White to the centers. I also added Bakers Twine from Lawn Fawn to the edge of the card.

I just love these fun images! They are perfect for Easter or any spring time card!

Thank You Card Using - Bunny Tea Time - Memory Box Co.

Hello everybody, Nicky back with you today with another sweet card this time using the adorable Bunny Tea Time by Memory Box.



The base of this card is made from Kraft card stock which I am increasingly using because I love both pastel and more vibrantly coloured decorated panels against this contrasting background - just a personal choice of course!

The white panel was ink blended softly using the fabulous Clarity Stencil Brushes to create a focal point using Distress Ink and then the 'thank you' sentiment was stamped repeatedly around the edge in a circle using Ranger Archival Ink.  Any black ink would have sufficed in this application but the Ranger Archival Ink provides such a strong and true black image every time you stamp provided you don't rush it!



Next i stamped up all of my images using the same Archival Ink.  I watercolour 'painted' them using the wonderful Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a Watercolor Brush Pen - you'll need a 'detailer' brush pen for such little images such as these.  I die cut everything out and applied them to the panel with dimensional foam tape.



The final touch was to stamp the two little piles of sugar cubes.  I highlighted my images with Uni-Ball Signo White having decided where the light would be hitting them and then I scattered around a few toning sequins.

I hope you are feeling inspired and have a wonderful creative week.  See you next time!

Avery Elle Double Birthday!

Happy Monday! Kim with you this morning sharing two projects featuring products from Butterfly Reflections Ink for my twin nieces who have a birthday this week!




These two projects feature images from the new Avery Elle Carousel stamps and dies! I chose the horse and the bear and coloured them with Copics. I then used my Nuovo Glitter paste inTanzanite Lavender and Peridot Green and made my own stencils out of dies. I then embossed my sentiments also from the Carousel set by Avery Elle.  I put my cards together and added the small action wobblers to both carousel images (I love me some action wobblers). I decided to make gift bags/boxes for their gifts, I love the Lawn Fawn dies for projects like these! So I used the Scalloped Treat Box die. I then paired the boxes with some of the newer Neat & Tangled Love Note dies in matching colours. 

I hope the girls will enjoy these for their birthday! have a great week!

Hey there!
Samantha here with you today, and I'm excited to share a fun card with lots of products from the Butterfly Reflections Ink shop!

I used lots of fun Distress Inks to create this card, and it was so fun! :)


I squished the ink pads onto my rectangle acrylic block and then spritzed with water, then pressed the block onto my card front!
I used the adorable Flamingo Together stamp set from Lawn Fawn and colored it in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. So fun! :)

A little heat embossing in white for the sentiment, and the card was good to go!

City Celebrations Birthday

Hi Everyone! Happy weekend! I love figuring out how to combine different stamp sets and dies. I think it gives you more bang for the buck and it's a fun to see what happens when different products combine.

Today I mixed City Celebrations with Time to Party.


I started by stamping, die cutting and coloring the cake from Time to Party. The age customization on this stamp set really brings it up a notch. I had a terrible ink accident and messed up one of the banners. Instead of tossing the whole cake, I cut off the banners on both sides, stamped and die cut another image and only colored the banner. I popped it behind the original cake with dimensional adhesive and I love the results. Problem solved. ;)


Next I die cut the City Celebrations and colored it to match. I stamped the sentiment from the coordinating City Celebrations stamp set.

Let's talk about the City Celebrations die for a minute. All the shapes are 99% cut out, except for the star. The star pops right out but all the other buildings, balloons and banner stay in! BUT, if you want to remove a shape it's one or two easy cuts. So cool. Trust me. 


To finish my card I adhered the cake to the scene and added a little gold glitter paper behind the star. I also added tons of clear Wink of Stella because the more shimmer the better.

Thanks for stopping by!

A Novel Birthday

Hey crafty friends, it's Christy, back with my Friday Feature at BRI. This week I needed a special birthday card for a very special lady in my writer's group, and I knew that the MFT Our Story stamp set was going to work perfectly to create the look I was after.


I did a combination of Copic coloring and paper piecing using the absolutely gorgeous Flora 6x6 by Carta Bella. Now, I'll admit, it did take me a while to fussy cut those beautiful patterns for the chair and some of my book covers and layer them over the matching die cuts, but since the Birthday Girl, Alice, was turning 85 years young, it was totally worth the extra effort. I even added her little dog, Gypsy, into the scene.

To create a soft background and ground my images I did some simple masking and sponging of Distress Inks. Then I framed up my focal panel by giving it a nice stitched edge with the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables and used lots of foam tape to layer my images and give my scene some depth and dimension.

Finally, I adhered another gorgeous print from that Flora 6x6 to a white standard size card base and popped up my focal panel with more foam tape. Since I was hand-delivering this card, I could get away with lots of dimension! I gave it to her on Sunday and she couldn't believe it was handmade. Isn't that just the best feeling?

I have a masculine version of this card up on my blog today, so if you're interested in that, please come check it out. And don't forget to stop by the Butterfly Reflections Ink shop, as LOADS of new products have just been added in the last few days. Have a great Friday, everybody!
