Popping In - Waffle Flower Crafts

Hello everybody, this is Nicky with you one last time in my 4 month design team role for Butterfly Reflections Ink, it has been such a pleasure and privilege to share my creations with you.  My card today features the adorable Popping In by Waffle Flower Crafts.

A panel was die cut and then delicately ink blended using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink together with my Clarity Stencil Brushes.  I then stamped all the images from Popping In using Ranger Archival Ink.  I then watercolour painted everything using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then die cut and adhered them into position on the ink blended panel using dimensional foam tape in various depths.


The colour scheme of the card is quite clearly to welcome a baby boy, so I just used the Congratulations stamp twice in the corner of the base layer of the card.  I then adhered the panel into position with craft foam sandwiched behind it.  Your cards will survive being mailed so much better for having craft foam incorporated.

Thank you so much for stopping on by the blog today, be sure to go and see what is new in the shop and if you are interested in seeing this and my other cards then you can follow me on Instagram #nickynoocards, Pinterest and Facebook.

Have a wonderful day

Awesome Rainbow!

Happy Monday crafty friends! Kim with you this morning and I am sharing another rainbow inspired project! Weather is so beautiful and that is inspiring me with color! Lots of color! All of the products used are available on the Butterfly Reflections Ink shop!

I started by die-cutting the Concord and 9th Floral and Flutter flower die with several colors of card stock. I added shading with Distress Inks to the edges of the petals. I then cut my Neena 80lbs card front to a little narrower than the 4.25 width and die cut the edges with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Border Dies.

I then felt the card needed a black sentiment for it to really pop so I chose the Neat & Tangled Awesome die and I accompanied that with an Avery Elle "You Are" sentiment from the Simply Said Hugs set (with some craft surgery to mix and match the words).

I put the card together and had to add my favorite Pretty Pink Posh Crystal Clear sequins and a mix of Nuvo Crystal and Jewel drops in the centres of the flowers!

Thanks for taking the time, have a great week! If any of these products are out of stock simply select the "notify me" option Vanessa stocks really quickly!

Altenew ..Thank You

Hello and happy Sunday !! 
Mayra here from Mayras Designs with today's post ! 

For my card today I used the beautiful 
Magnolias For Her stamp set by Altenew .

 For the heat embossing I used Ranger White Embossing Powder and 
I then did ink blending for the background using the Mini Ink Blending Tool and  Distress Inks in the colors Seedless Preserves , Wilted Violet and Aged Mahogany . For the Magnolias I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers (can you tell I am LOVING these ) in the colors Lilac (083), Pink(25) and Natural Gray (902).  To finish the card I stamped the sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink .

Big Fox Hugs

 Happy Saturday! Happy Earth Day! 

Today I'm sharing the adorable and SUPER popular stamp set Hug Me by Altenew. 

To create my card I stamped and colored the sweet balloon fox image. Next, I fussy cut the image (there are die cuts too!).

To create the background I blended Distress Inks and stamped a few clouds. The frame was created with Scalloped Pierced Dies. It's fun to get creative and use the negative space on dies. It's a trick I use a lot. ;)

The card was finished with a few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Thanks for stopping by today! I can't wait to see what you create!

Hoppy Birthday, Ribbit!

Hey friends, happy Friday! It's Christy here with a fun pond scene featuring Memory Box Hoppy Holidays. This set is super versatile because it does double duty as both a Christmas set, and everyday. Today I paired it with the bright and cheery Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Rainbow 6x6 papers to create a birthday card.

I colored my images with Copic markers then die cut them with the matching dies. Then I layered a strip of grass cut with Lawn Fawn's Meadow Borders and Stitched Hillside Borders. I added it with foam tape over a panel cut with the Large Cross Stitched Square Stackables to create the sky at the top and the pond at the bottom. 

For my card base, I trimmed my patterned paper down to 4'' x 5 1/2'' to leave a blue border all the way around, then added a banner down the center with the end trimmed down using the Stitched Party Banners. Then I popped my focal panel over top with some more foam tape and finished things off with a few Pretty Pink Posh 4mm and 6mm Clear Droplets. A little Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen was the finishing touch. It's hard to make out on camera but it's so pretty in person!

I also did some fun stamping on the inside with Lawn Fawn Peacock Ink, but I'll save that for the video. ;) I hope you enjoy it! Click on the YouTube icon to watch there in HD, and if you're not already a subscriber, I'd love for you to become one. Have an amazing weekend, everybody!

Ninjas Two Ways!

I have a two for one today! Two cards, totally different in style, both made using the same stamp set, Ninja-mazing Stamp Set from My Favorite Things.

The first card is a one layer card. I stamped my images with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink and created a scene by masking the images with Inkadinkado Masking Paper.

To make the poor little ninja who is flying threw the air look surprised, I circled his eye with a Uni-Ball White Gel Pen and drew slight lines with a black pen to indicate movement.

The second card is a little more involved. This one had a pull tap which moves one of these little ninja images across the card.

I created the background using the MFT Radiating Sunray Stencil and the MFT Hit The Slopes Die set. I also used the MFT  Blueprints 25 and Blueprints 27.

I used Distress Ink in Fossilized Amber over the stenciled and applied using the Clarity Stencil Brushes.
