Lawn Fawn - Christmas Dreams

Hi everyone!!!! It's Christine here and I'm up on the blog today with a fun little Christmas scene using some adorable stamps from Lawn Fawn. Here's my card:



To create my card, I first cut out a piece of Canson XL watercolor paper and then lightly inked it with some Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink.  I then lightly spritzed the panel with some water.  Next, I stamped my images from the adorable Christmas Dreams Stamp Set from Lawn Fawn.  I stamped them onto some Canson XL watercolor paper and then painted them in with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a Detailer Water Brush.  I then cut the images out using the Coordinating Christmas Dreams Lawn Cuts Dies and then adhered them to my distressed panel.  I then adhered the entire panel to a standard A2 sized card base.  For a finishing touch, I added some Iridescent Crystals from Studio Katia.  I also added some glitter to some of the stamped images using my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen.  What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by!

My Favorite Things - Ski-sons Greetings

Hi everyone!  It's Christine here to share a fun wintery card with you today using a brand new stamp set from My Favorite Things.  Here's my card:



For my card today, I first cut out a piece of Kraft cardstock and inked it with some Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink.  I then used my Echo Park Snowflakes #2 stencil and some Silver Glitter Paste to create the beautiful textured and glittery snowflake background.  Next, I stamped my adorable image from the Ski-sons Greetings stamp set by MFT onto Canson XL watercolor paper and then painted the image with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a Detailer Water Brush.  I then cut the cute bear out using the Coordinating DieNamics Ski-sons Greetings dies and then adhered the image to the front of the snowflake panel with foam tape.  I next stamped the sentiment onto some black cardstock with some Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  I then adhered the sentiment to the panel using foam tape and then adhered the entire panel to a standard A2 sized card base.  What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by

LDRS: Fun Wintery Scene Using Little Darlings Stamps and Dies


Hi everyone!  I'm here with you today to share a super fun winter/Christmas card using an adorable LDRS Creative stamp and die set from Little Darlings (and these are on sale right now too!!!).

To create this card, I first created my background using some Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Inks.  I spritzed the panel with some water to give it that fun distressed look.  I then stamped the adorable images from the North Woods Stamp and Die Set from LDRS Creative and then colored the images with my Zig Markers and a water brush.  I then cut out the critters and trees using the coordinating dies that come in the set.  Next, I used the hillside border die from the Snowy Day Border Die Set (this die can actually be used in so many ways . . . it coordinates with the snowflake border die beautifully, but, as I did here, you can use it by itself to create a fun hillside) to create a snowy hillside and then adhered that to my distress inked panel.  I then adhered the trees and critters to the panel with some foam tape and then adhered the entire panel to the front of a standard A2 sized note card.  I added a sentiment from the Splendid Azure Quick Words Sticker Set which I thought went well with the little scene I created.  My idea is to give this as a thank you note for Christmas gifts received during the holiday season.  Finally, for a finishing touch, I added some Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops on the tree and around the panel to look like snow.

Honey Bee Stamps - Acorn Sisters

Hi everyone!  It's Christine here for Butterfly Reflections Ink.  I just had to squeeze in one more fall card before I buckled down and made all my Christmas cards.  I decided to create a card using the adorable Acorn Sisters Stamp Set from Honey Bee Stamps.  Here's my card:


To create my card, I first created my background by cutting a piece of Canson XL watercolor paper to a standard A2 size card front and painting it with some fall watercolors using my Gansai Tambi 36 Set Watercolor Paint Set.  I just did a simple watercolor wash background technique to create this look.  Next, this image was screaming to me to do some no water coloring, so I stamped the image with some watercolor approved black ink and stamped it onto some Canson XL watercolor paper.  I then painted the image with my Zig Markers and my Detailer Waterbrush.  I then cut the image out using the Coordinating Acorn Sisters Honey Cuts Dies.  I stamped my sentiment onto my panel and then adhered the image with some foam tape.  I then adhered the entire panel to a standard A2 sized card base.  For a finishing touch, I added some Iridescent Crystals Mix from Studio Katia.  What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today.  Thank you so much as always for stopping by and have a wonderful day!  Hugs, Christine

Little Darlings - Fun Winter CandiBean Card


Hi everyone!  I'm here with you today to share a super fun winter/Christmas card using an adorable CandiBean image from Little Darlings (and she's on sale right now too!!!!).

To create this card, I used some beautiful design paper from the Winnie Winter Land 6x6 Paper PackI then used some white watercolor cardstock and stamped the adorable Can I Ski Too Stamp Set (again, this stamp set is greatly discounted right now) onto the cardstock with some waterproof black ink.  I then used some Distress Oxide inks to ink up the watercolor panel and then added some interest by lightly spritzing the panel with some water from my distress sprayer.  You could definitely create a mask of the image to protect it from the Distress Oxide ink, but I didn't find this was necessary if I was very careful when applying the ink.  I then colored the image with my Zig Markers and a water brush.  I added a sentiment from the Splendid Azure Quick Words Sticker Set and then adhered the watercolor panel to my design paper.  Finally, I adhered the entire cardstock panel to a standard white A2 card base.

Lawn Fawn Thanksgiving Feast

Hi everyone!!!  I hope you are all having a wonderful week.  Thursday is Thanksgiving Day here in the US so I thought it would be fun to create a fun Thanksgiving card using the adorable Forest Feast Stamp Set from Lawn Fawn.  All products I used today to create this card are available over at Butterfly Reflections Ink.  Here's my card:




To create this card, I first cut a rectangle out of some Canson XL watercolor paper using the Wonky Rectangles Dies from MFT.  I then did some light inking with my Wild Honey Distress Oxide Ink.  I then lightly spritzed the panel with some water from my distress sprayer to create that fun distressed effect.  Next I stamped my images from the Forest Feast Stamp Set from Lawn Fawn and colored the images with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and my Detailer Water Brush.  I then cut my images out using the coordinating Forest Feast Lawn Cuts Dies and then placed the critters onto my panel.  I stamped the sentiment onto my panel using some black ink and then adhered the panel to a standard A2 sized notecard.  For a finishing touch, I added some Metallic Gold Confetti Mix Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh for a finishing touch.  What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today.  Thank you all so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful week!!!  Hugs, Christine

Video Tutorial - Honey Bee Stamps - Hey Pumpkin!

Hi everyone!  It's Christine here for Butterfly Reflections Ink.  I have a new card and video tutorial to share today using the adorable Hey Pumpkin Stamp Set from Honey Bee Stamps.  Here's today's video:

(To view on YouTube, click )

And here are some pictures of my card:







To create this card, I first stamped the image onto Canson XL watercolor paper.  Next, you could definitely cut out a mask and use that on top of your image, but I did not do that.  I found that the Cloud Stencil from My Favorite Things was so easy to work with, I could see through it so I simply placed it over my image and did my inking around the stamped image.  I used Wild Honey Distress Oxide Ink and Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink for my inking.  I then removed the cloud stencil and did some light water spraying with my distress sprayer.  Next I colored the image with my Zig Markers and my Detailer Water Brush.  I cut the panel down slightly and then stamped the sentiment.  I then adhered the panel to a standard sized A2 card.  What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today.  Thank you so much as always for stopping by and have a wonderful day!  Hugs!

Hugs, Christine
