Shadow Stamping Birthday Card

Hey Everyone, its Trish here today sharing a project with you all!

This card was created for MFT Camp Create Day #5 which was all about shadow stamping.  This card features my new favorite stamp set from MFT "Make a Wish" and a ton of Lawn Fawn Ink.

I like to call this type of card a One Hit Wonder Card; in that you only need 1 stamp set to create the whole card.  I love challenging myself to create cards using only one stamp set, it makes me stretch my stamps little further.

I'm starting out with a 5.5"x5.5" base to create a card big enough to fit all of the candle on my card and my kraft card stock measures 5.25" x 5.25".  Before stamping the candles, I marked with a pencil the half way points on each side of my craft card stock so that my candles would be spaced out evenly.  Using my Tim Holtz Scissors, I performed some stamp surgery and separated one of the candles from its group.  I then began stamping my candles in Lawn Fawn Yeti Ink, first starting at the top and bottom and stamping in a fan of stamps at the top and bottom of my card stock.  Then doing the same with the flame for the candles.

Once I had finish stamping all of the images in Yeti ink, I went in and started to stamp the colors over the candles but slightly offset.  You'll see when I was trying to line them up, I was pretty off on most of the candles.  The candle that came out the best looking was the light purple but we're always learning something, right? haha.  Rainbow order was the color scheme I decided for my candles and all of the inks are from Lawn Fawn.  In Rainbow Order: Lobster, Plastic Flamingo, Fake Tan, Sunflower, Jalapeño, Merman, Fish Tank, Deep Sea, Fresh Lavender, and Sugarplum.   And for the flames, I'm stamping first in Sunflower and then just rocking the bottom of the flame in Pumpkin Spice to add a little dimension to the flame.

Once I finished with the candles, I worked on the sentiment.  I decided that I wanted it to really stand out from the colorful background, so I went with some Ranger Super Fine Detailed White Embossing Powder on black card stock and attached it with some foam adhesive.

The last thing that I did to my card was applied some Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend Sequins with some Ranger Multi Medium Matte adhesive and brushed some Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen in Clear on the flame.

And that completes my card!  I really hope that you guys enjoyed this card and that it gave you another view on this technique.  Maybe you'll try it out!

Kind Words Cost Nothing...

Hello!  It is Lisa Lahiff here with you today, and I'm so happy to share a quick and elegant card with all of you today...

I am a sucker for great quotes and the Beautiful Quotes Stamp Set by Altenew is wonderful!!!  The sentiments in this set really grab my heart every time, like the one on this card.  For my background I started by stamping various images from the Wild Hibiscus Stamp Set also by Altenew with their Glacier Caves Mini Inks.  I then die cut the panel out with Lawn Fawn's Stitched Large Rectangles.  I then paneled my sentiment with some silver mirror paper and popped it up with foam adhesive.

Thanks so much for stopping by and don't miss out on the new goodies that are constantly coming into the shop!
Happy Crafting/Shopping!

You & Me

I am so sad to be writing this, but this will be my last entry for the Butterfly Reflections Ink Design Team. I feel like I just started this journey and now it's coming to an end. I am excited to see the new team and all of their awesome talent though!  So let's take a look at my last layout!

Using more of the Amy Tangerine Collections Better Together & Finders Keepers I wanted to bring in some more of the colors from the beautiful pattern papers. So I went in with my watercolors and did a little mixed media. 

 I also wanted to stick with a circle theme, since there were a couple of circle pieces from the Ephemera Pack I popped a couple up and left the rest to lay flat on the paper, to give it some interest.
I also used some cut files from Ashley Horton These cut files are actually a challenge that Ashley and Missy Whidden have going on, which is called Stretch Your Sketch. You should go check it out and download your free cut files! 

Well I hope you guys enjoyed some of my projects I had to share with you in these few short months. I know that this has been such a wonderful time for me! I am truly thankful for Vanessa, she really does care about her people. She has been so patient and kind, Thank you Vanessa for allowing me to be apart of something so great. I will never forget this experience.

Love You Tons

Hi there!  It's Lorraine (Created by Lorraine) sharing my last card as part of Butterfly Reflections Ink's Design Team.  Though I am sad to leave, I am incredibly thankful to Vanessa for giving me such an amazing opportunity to grow as a crafter and share my work.  What a great experience!  As a small token of my gratitude, I packed a whole lot of love into this project...

To make this card, I first stamped, colored (with copics) and die cut the images using a number of Lawn Fawn products, including Love You Tons stamps and dies for the elephants and sentiment; Year Four stamp and die for the balloon.

I also used Lawn Fawn lawn cuts, Say Cheese, to make the picture frame.  I then die cut the sun and clouds from Lawn Fawn patterned paper, using the Spring Showers lawn cuts.

Then I assembled the shaker card.  I adhered clear acetate to the picture frame with glue, then adhered narrow strips of foam adhesive to the back.  I then cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the polaroid frame and put some sequins on top of it.  Then I adhered the picture frame on top of the patterned paper to create the shaker element.

To finish up my card, I stamped the sentiment to the card base and used strong tape to adhere the shaker element to the card base.  Lastly, I completed the design by adhering the die cuts with glue or foam tape.

Thank you for coming by and thank you -- Vanessa and the BRI fam -- for your support.  It really has been a honor to be part of the BRI team.  As the card says, love you tons!

Sending Smiles

Hi friends!   Kimberly here today to share a monstrously cute card using the new Monster Love stamp set from MFT!!   I just had to have this stamp set the second I saw it....the little monsters are too cute to resist!

Ranger - White Embossing Powder

Versafine - Onyx Black Ink

I created my focal panel by criss-crossing the three glitter washi tapes across a black piece of cardstock and then used a stitched rectangle to die cut the panel.  I found a spot to tuck the sentiment in and stamped with Versafine, added white embossing powder and heat embossed.

The monster was stamped and die cut and positioned on LOTS of foam tape for dimension!

Congratulations !

Hi Everyone!

It's Karin from PeppermintPatty's Papercraft, here to share some inspiration. For today's card I've played with some adorable products from Lawn Fawn. I know, I'm waiting for the new release too but was inspired to use the adorable fairies!

I diecut my stitched rectangle and then simply stamped a little scene and colored with copic markers. I stamped the script sentiment but had to mask the edges of my rectangle so the edges of the script didn't go all the way out. I then I matted my rectangle to some pink cardstock before adhereing to my cardbase with foam adhesive.
For a little dimension I created a little bow from pink cardstock and adhered at the top.
