Autumn Give Thanks

Hello, all! It's Lynnea and I'm back to bring you another card! I've used some more Lawn Fawn goodies from the SHOP...both older and newer products! Last week I made a summer card. The temperatures are finally getting lower and yesterday I saw an orange leaf! Hooray! It's fall!! Let's jump right in! 





I die cut a piece of 5.5" wide heavy weight cardstock with THIS new die from Lawn Fawn. I also cut two pieces of cardstock with THIS older die. I masked off the little houses and used Peeled Paint and THIS Distress Ink to color the grass. I inked directly onto a sidefolding card base with Broken China and THIS Distress Ink for the sky. Next, I masked off the bottom portion of the hill so that I could ink just the houses. I used THIS red Distress Ink, THIS orange Distress Ink, and THIS yellow Distress Ink. I flicked some water onto my pieces to distress them further.



I stamped the wheelbarrow full of pumpkins from THIS stamp set ( you can find the matching dies HERE ). The little mice came from THIS stamp set ( matching dies HERE ) and the turkey from THIS stamp set ( matching dies HERE ). I used THIS ink because I colored the images with some Copic Markers ( the shop has some for sale HERE ). I stamped the sentiment with THIS ink and sprinkled on some of THIS embossing powder and heat set it with my heat gun. 




I glued everything together with THIS glue. I squeezed some of THIS onto some acetate and let the drops dry overnight. I used more glue to adhere them onto my project. You guys. You need this drops. I need them in all of the colors! They are perfect! Just squeeze some of the liquid onto plastic in various sizes and let them dry. They are so similar to enamel dots it's scary! And they go so far!

That's my card! I hope you enjoyed! See you next time!

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…

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 …

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&#…
