"Welcome Summer" feat. Lawn Fawn!

Happy first day of summer everyone!! :)
It's franci ( friday finally)  here today with a cute Lawn Fawn card to celebrate the season!
Here's what i created..




























Those whales are my fave stamps ever! they are soo pretty! 
So today i decided to create a happy and fun card to get into the summer happiness! 
Finally summer arrived also here in Milan after lots of super rainy days, the sun always shines in the sky and everything make me think about the sea and the ocean.. about vacations!! :)
That's why i dusted all my "summer stamp set" and i started to create this fun ocean scene.
As always i first die cut a stitched rectangle and i gave it some color with Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass distress inks. I sprayied some water to achieve this cool bubble effect and i let it dry completely. Then i stamped all my images on some with cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and i colored them with my copics. I fussy cut them and i added some details with a white gelly roll pen. The whales are from the Whale you be mine stamps set and the fishes, the rocks and the seaweeds are from the Fintastic friends stamp set. All by Lawn Fawn! :)
I die cut my letters for the "Summer" word from some white cardstock and i used Spiced Marmelade, Picked Raspberry and Cracked Pistachio to gave them a super light color shade.
Next i stamped my clothline on the background with the same black ink used before. I adhered all my pieces down and i also stamped all the clothespins on the letters.
And the card is finished! 
Here's a little detail..





























Those fishes .. they jump the rope!! And i always giggle when i look at them! ahah!! :) 
Hope you like my project and thank you so so much for stopping by today! ;)
Have a lovely day! 
Happy summer! 
franci :)

Baby Tags featuring the We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool!

Happy Monday! This is Kim Hamilton and I am so very excited to be sharing my first post with you for Butterfly Reflections Ink! This is making my first day back to work after a two-week break a happy one! I am sharing baby gift tags today, one of my friends is expecting and not sure what she is having so I made one of each!

I used my We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool for the first time and loved it! I cut my own Tim Holtz watercolor paper to the size of tag I wanted (2 3/4 x 4 1/4) and cut the edges with my trimmer.  I stamped my sentiments that are by Lawn Fawn Hello Baby with VersaMark ink and used white embossing powder. For the girl tag I used a mix of Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Abandoned Coral Distress Inks and for the boy tag I used Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron Distress Inks.  I sprayed both tags with some water and dabbed it off. I then stamped my images by My Favorite Things Snuggle Bunnies for the girl and Magical Dragons for the boy.  I colored m…

Painting backwards....

Hello, hello!  Norine here from The Velvet Lemon blog.  It's been a week for introductions hasn't it, but let me just say how delighted I am to have been invited to join such a talented group of paper crafters, and to contribute here at Butterfly Reflections Ink!  
Today I'm sharing with you, some cards I made by working backwards. 
What do I mean, you wonder?  Well, it's a technique I sometimes enjoy doing, where you "smoosh" your water based ink pads on a craft mat, mist the colors with water and then drag your water color paper through it to create a pretty mess of color.    
For today's cards, I wanted a blend of blues and greens (always a crowd pleaser) and yellows/pinks.  You will always be happier with the results when you keep the green/blues from overlapping with the yellow/pinks, because that just produces an unappealing mud color.  

I used a variety of Tim Holtz Distress Inks for this project, but any water based inks will work the same.  It&#…

Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 3 + Giveaway

Hey, hey BRI friends!  We're hopping today to celebrate the 4th Birthday of Altenew, one of our favorite stamping companies!  You should have arrived here from the Altenew blog, and we're glad you're here to share the excitement! There are prizes and inspiration and it's going to be FUN!

With you today, is Norine from The Velvet Lemon creating for Butterfly Reflections Ink and I have some projects to share today, that I made using some recently released Altenew products.  
First up, are these two cards created with the Mega Succulent stamp set.  

I stamped the image onto water color paper using the MISTI, then turned on the music and sat and colored.

  I used Faber Castell watercolor pencils so I could more easily control where the color would sit and then painted with a water brush.  I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of vellum, heat embossed with clear embossing powder to ensure that the ink wouldn't smudge, then tore the vellum and wrapped it around the card …
