Birthday Sloth with Hugs!

Happy Monday! Kim back with you today and I am in a great mood! March has arrived which means spring is around the corner! 

My project today features all Lawn Fawn products and is a birthday card for one of my nephews! Go check out the Butterfly Reflections Ink shop for some great Lawn Fawn products, links below!


I have always loved Lawn Fawn and especially their critters. This sloth from the Hang in There stamp set is certainly not an exception - I just love him! I started by stamping and coloring my sloth with Copics (W7 and W5 for the eyes, a mix of W5, W3, E71 and E74 for the body, E40 and E42 for the face). I die cut the image then went through my Lawn Fawn stash and decided on a jungle theme for my nephew Tristan. I used the trees from Critters Down Under and the leaves from Critters in the Jungle.

I then decided to die cut my base panel from Avery Elle's Wonky Stitches Elle-ments. The cloud masks were die cut from Lawn Fawn clouds and I used Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass for the sky. I also used my Copics for the trees and leaves in YG01, YG13 and YG17 and for the tree trunks I used E31, E55, E57 and E77. I then felt I needed to add some more jungle greenery and I used the Grassy Border from Lawn Fawn and added a bit of Mowed Lawn Distress Ink for depth. I put my card together before choosing my sentiment, I ended up loving the Lawn Fawn With Hugs from the Fab Flowers set. I added a few Lawn Fawn hearts and the birthday hat also from Hang in There and a pompom!

Have a great week!
Kim

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 th

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 vel

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 w
