I have been hitting the …

Reverse Confetti pretty hard lately! I can’t help it! Such adorable stuff! They are a relatively new company to me and I have no idea why I waited so long to buy their products! 

The mermaid trend has been big lately and I am, as always, a little slow to jump on that train but here I go!


This set is called Mermaid Kisses and I just love it! She is too cute and so much fun to color. On this card I used copics but I think I may use my zigs for the next card…kind of going with the water/watercolor theme! 


I also used the Sunray Stencil by My Favorite Things and also the Stitched Rectangle Scalloped Frames Dies by MFT.  

I wanted to give the feel of water but didn’t want to ink my entire background so I thinly outlined the mermaid and her fish friends with B21 and B24. I hand drew in the sand and stamped the starfish and plant life included in this set. I thought using the Sunray Stencil would give the feeling of the sun as it shines through the water. It also brings attention to my main image. I used Broken China Distress inks for the rays.

Thanks for taking the time to check out my card! Many hugs!

Lotsa Lips!

As I started making Valentine’s Day cards this year I was on a mission to make nothing but non Valentine’s Day looking cards. I wanted loveish (is that a word?) looking cards but I wanted something I could use year round and that didn’t look too mushy!

But as I made a few with the above description, I found that I did want a few that looked more traditional. I found, however, I do not have a lot of traditional looking supplies. So I had to get creative and this is what I came up with!

I needed lips! Lots and lots of lips! And guess what I didn’t have? Yep…no lips…no lip stamps that is!  So I came up with a way to turn the heart stamps included with the I’m Owl Yours stamp set by My Favorite Things into lips!

I also used the stamp sets Love is in the Mail set. How I went about this is all in
I also included in the VIDEO instructions on how I selectively stamped the owl and heart stamps to create this card!

How funny is this?? I just love it! And to make it even more funny I put this little smooching owl on an action wobble!

Hopefully this won’t offend anyone…

…but I had to make a racy Valentine’s Day Card for hubby. He is not a fan of cards…at all. In fact, on our first date he told me the has three rules.

1. He will never hold my purse for me. Never. He won’t even touch it. (He has since broken this rule several times)

2. He will not buy me flowers. They are a waste of money. They die. (He has also broken this rule several times)

3. He will never buy me a card. (This is the only rule of his that has stood the test of time)

I have made him plenty of cards in the past but he only seems interested in the one I made him last year, which was a little racy. He love it. He showed it to everyone!  Even his co workers.  A few details of the card: it involved a stamp set which could be interpreted differently then intended and had a clever play on words….and altered sentiment or two.

So I had to do something simmilar this year and here is what I came up with…

Yeah….it’s not as suggestive as last year’s card but I think he will get a kick out of it!

I mostly used all My Favorite Things products including the Warm Fuzzy Friends stamps set and the dies. The stencil, ink, and die cut stats are from various MFT products as well. The circle is on a piece of fun foam for added dimention. I added distress ink to the circle to add a bit of variation to the color of the night sky.


I had to cut a small sliver from the window in the tent to add the fire and I popped it up a bit on top.

I also had to add a bit of shimmer to the stars!

Cross your fingers that has likes it!

Hugs,

Rebekah ❤❤

I’ve been going a little crazy…

….with the masking lately! 

About a year ago I bought a pack of masking paper and just about every ‘Full Sticky’ Post-Its  I could find. I wanted to make sure I has all my bases covered in my masking adventures. I was sure I would never need to make a purchase in this craving category for quite a while.

And for quite a while I was right. Not because I has so much of the stuff but because I never used any of it.

And then a few weeks ago and fever hit.  A masking fever. I must-mask-all the-things type of fever. 

It has been fun.

Not hard.

Not tedious. 

Just fun!

Here are is my latest card using my new favorite technique.

I used My Favorite Things Otterly-Love You stamp set. How adorable iso this set? If you have followed me at all you know I have a massive amount of love for My Favorite Things and this set was, once again, a must have for me!

I have been on a mission to create non-pink  Valentines Day cards because my kids, who receive most of what I make, and getting older and getting out of the cutie pie stage. And I have two boys who never have been in that stage!

I made this card for my oldest son who is in love with fishing and anything outdoors! 

I stamped and cut all the masks from the Otterly-Love You set  applied them to my card base. The hill mask is from that circle die cut into half. The trees are from the Warm and Fuzzy Friends set also by My Favorite Things. 

All the images are colored with Copic markers and the water is colored with distress inks. 

I only needed one mask for all the images except for the trees and I cut three of each tree and just moved them along as I stamped. 


Nope it’s not perfect but I am pretty sure he will love it!

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog! Many hugs to you!

REVERSE CONFETTI in the hooouse!

Link to video for this card CLICK HERE!

Oh, I was so happy to see then Vanessa at Butterfly Reflections Ink carrying Reverse Confetti now! I have had my eye on a few of their products for a while no and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to pick up an few things!


One thing I bought was the Mouse Mail stamp set! It is just too cute!
I colored these little guys with my copics. I wanted them to be standing on a huge pile of mail so that ment I had to to some masking, which is a process I have really been enjoying lately! I use to avoid it it all costs but now that I have done it a few time, I realize it’s no big deal and some truly awesome looks can be achieved!

I explained my entire process for making this card in VIDEO If you like it give me a thumbs up! I am still new to making videos and want to be sure I am more on the right track with what you would like to see!

Thanks so much for taking time out to read my blog! 

Hugs to you all,

CAS(E) This Sketch!

I am so excited to share that I am on the CAS (E) This Sketch blog as guest designer!

The sketch is awesome! I love that it so graphic and can buy interpreted in so many different ways!

Here is my take on the sketch using the Avery Elle ‘Wood You?’ Stamp set! The heart dies are from Little B and are just too cute with the little die cut stitching! I also used an embossing folder from We R Memory Keepers for the background!


The twine is from Doodlebug and with it, I attached my white heat embossed sentiment. 

Be sure to check out the blog and all the sketches! I can’t wait to see what you all make!
Hugs, Rebekah ❤❤

Happy Mail! Butterfly Reflections Ink! 

Hi, there! It’s Rebekah here today sharing a card I made using Lawn Fawns Happy Mail Lawn Cuts.

It may sound a bit strange but I have always had a thing for mailboxes.. I have an antique French mailbox I plan to hang inside my house as soon as I find the perfect spot for it! Maybe its the anticipation of happy mail that makes me love them, I don’t know. But that is why I when I saw this mailbox die I knew I had to have it!

 I created the scene inside the Wonky Windows die from My Favorite Things. I also used the Rolling Hills die and the Grassy Hills.

I thought this card needed some pattern so on the gray cardstock base I stamped the Diagonal Stripes Background Stamp also from My Favorite Things.

These dies and stamp set are perfect for Valentine’s Day. Included in the stamp set is a Valentine’s Day sentiment, but also included are a number of sentiments which can be used year round. I will be using these products again soon!!!

Keep an eye on My Blog and my Instagram to see more projects created with products from the Butterfly Reflections Ink Store!
