Lawn Fawn Fishy Ornaments

Hello!

It has been so fun working with such fun products and bringing you weekly projects! I hope everyone has taken advantage of the design team call! It really has been such a joy to work with the Vanessa and the other ladies!

I have been crafting up a storm this week! My family loves handmade gifts at Christmas. I made a set of tag ornaments to give as a gift using some of my favorite Lawn Fawn sets ( ... but let's be honest...they're all my favorite!... ). Get ready for a photo heavy post!









I started by stamping out so many images from 3 different Lawn Fawn sets - Mermaid For You, Holiday Party Animal, and Fintastic Friends. I used Versafine Onyx Black ink and embossed it them with Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder.






I watercolored all of my little images with various colors of Distress Inks mixed with Perfect Pearls. This has become my favorite way to color images! There's so much shimmer and shine and it's a quick relaxing way to color! I used the coordinating Mermaid for YouHoliday Party Animal, and Fintastic Friends Lawn Cuts to cut out all of my images. 







I used some Christmas themed patterned paper from my stash and a tag die to cut out 2 each of 5 patterns. I threaded some gold twine through the top to create the hanger for my ornaments. I started to arrange my pieces on my ornaments and used liquid glue and foam squares to create some dimension. 







In the last two photos you can really see the shimmer and shine that Perfect Pearls gives. I love it! Seriously can't get enough! 

These ornaments really weren't that hard to create and I know my brother will love them! Thanks for joining me today! Have a merry Christmas!

  1. These are too cute and such a fantastic idea! I need to break out the perfect pearls more often, it looks stunning on the mermaids and fish!

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 …
