Hero Arts Wonder and Magic of Christmas



Hi everyone, I'm here with you today. sharing a card I made with the new Hero Arts stamp/die set, Wonder and Magic of Christmas.

I started with a Navy cardstock base and added a kraft panel cut a little smaller.  I die cut the center of the kraft layer using the largest die in the MFT Dienamics Stitched Dome Stax. I also used that same die to cut a piece of white cardstock to inlay it.

Then I used the MFT Drifts and Hills stencil  and inked in a few snow hills. So, for my tree I used a light/medium/dark shade of blue ink to create an ombre effect. Then I stamped the deer and star using VersaMark embossing ink and Hero Arts Gold embossing powder. I die cut them using the coordinating dies. I cut a banner and white heat embossed the sentiment, which is from the same stamp set.  Lastly I added some Studio Katia Iridescent Ice Flakes Crystals for some decoration.

Bugaboo Digi - Cute Santa Peeker


Hi everyone, I needed a Santa card to go with a gift, and I'd seen that Bugaboo Digi Stamps came out with this sweet image that is currently on SALE for 50% off as a new release and I couldn't resist coloring him up!  I used Copics to color the image. The die cut holly is by Impression Obsession called Patchwork Holly

Avery Elle Cool Beans


Hi everyone! I'm here today with a winter coffee card to show you!  I started by cutting the plaid patterned paper in A2 size from the Jen Hadfield Warm & Cozy 6x6 paper pad. (check out all the CUTE patterns in this paper pad!). I then used the new Fa La La stencil by Neat & Tangled and used Ground Espresso distress ink over Kraft cardstock and layered that over red cardstock onto my base.

I die cut and Copic colored the coffee cups from Avery Elle Cool Beans with coordinating dies. I die cut a deer from MFT Dienamics Delightful Deer in bright gold cardstock. I tucked the deer behind some natural twine I tied around the red layer.

I embossed some of the kraft cardstock using Sunny Studio Cable Knit EF and then die cut the wrap that goes around the cup. I love how it gives the wrap dimension! Lastly I stamped, diecut and colored the holly from MFT Tweet Holidays and added to my cups for decoration and a pop of color! The little sentiment "Cool Beans" fit on there perfectly I thought!

I'm entering this card in the 2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, which Butterfly Reflections Ink. is sponsoring!  I hope you'll be inspired to create a coffee card of your own to link up!


I've entered my card in the following challenges/hops:

Happy Llamadays!


Hello everyone, I'm here getting a jump on my holiday cards and featuring these new products over in the Butterfly Reflections Ink. shop!  Today I've combined two stamps sets to create my scene.  This super fun Llama set by MFT called Happy Llamadays  I Copic colored and die cut this llama from that set. The sentiment "Happy Llamadays" stamped in VersaFine Black Onyx ink is also part of this stamp set.

I loved this night sky from the set Starry Scene Stamp Set by Avery Elle.  I stamped the night sky, then copic colored and fussy cut the trees and mountains, which was very easy. There are coordinating dies available with this set as well.

I trimmed down my panel and layered over blue cardstock to add a little extra to my card.

Thanks for joining me here today at Butterfly Reflections Ink.  Head over to the shop for these wonderful products and so much more!

Newton's Nook Designs November Release - Day 3


Hi all, welcome to day 3 of the Newton's Nook Designs reveals.  Today is the last day, tomorrow we celebrate Thanksgiving in the U.S. and then Black Friday is here!

So today, Newton finally makes his appearance! As you can see, we've got a party going on, these 2 sets are celebration/New Years themed!


So for my first card I used this image from Newton Celebrates, I just thought it was adorable, but don't ask me what kind of drink is neon green, that would require an olive for a garnish.  I just love green drinks and thought Newton looked cute floating in one! I love cards that use a bunch of patterns like this one, I hope you enjoy it too!


Then next up, I'm featuring the image on the left from Newton's New Year, and I borrowed a Newton from Newton Celebrates, the little guy with champagne in his hand.  I hope that wasn't confusing.  But I thought the 2 sets went together so well!  I mounted these sweet images on a double layer of tags from the Fancy Edges Tag Die Set. Did you notice the Argyle plaid background?  Yes, it's that awesome 2 piece stencil again. What fun to create backgrounds with both the Plaid and Argyle Stencils!

Well that's it everyone, I sure have enjoyed this week and I hope you have too!  Make sure to comment on all the DT's blogs to win!!!

Newton's Nook Designs November Release Day 2


Welcome to day 2 of the November reveals and today, wow, we've got two amazing new stamp/die combos to show you and more of the fabulous new plaid stencil, so here we go!
Don't forget to comment on all the DT's blogs listed below for your chance to win a $25 g/c to the Newton's Nook Designs store!


So starting with my first card, I used the new Winter Birds stamps/die combo, I adore this new set, how about you?  I really enjoyed coloring these birds and plan to color many more this holiday season!  As you can see, I used the plaid stencil, but this time only used the one layer.  I thought it looked great and made the perfect background for my birdies! I also used the pine bough and berries from the Pines and Holly Die Set.


Then comes this new Poinsettia Blooms stamp/die set, I'm in love!  What about you?  I just love all the floral and greenery, I enjoyed coloring this so, so much! I cut a small rectangle in black, heat embossed the sentiment in white and created a chalk board look by frosting the edges in white ink. I then foam mounted my florals and leaves in the corners and glued it on the Plaid Stencil background I created using a gold stripe on black with a little paint spatter.
