Building a scene with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies

Good Morning Crafty Birdies,

Alix here showing you my design team project using Lawn Fawn stamps and dies to build a Spring scene. This idea of lay out comes from a picture from I saw online. I am not sure where other people get their references and inspirations,. I usually google with the scene or object and I am always satisfied with my searches. I was thinking about a scene with frogs and ducks, so I typed keywords and added "cartoon" in the end.. Oh yes  I found lots of ideas.


First of all, I cut my front frame using Lawn Fawn Leafy Tree Backdrop Landscape die out of Neenah Solar white 80 lbs cardstock. To create the tree, I used Copic markers to color the tree trunk and branches and dyed the leaves with Tim holtz Distress Oxide ink in Worn Lipstick. 

To create the scene behind this frame, I used Lawn Fawn Toadally Awesome Stamp set and Lawn Fawn Rub-A-Dub Stamp set I hand fussy cut all images and colored with Copic markers. To save your time, You could get their coordinating dies ( Toadally Awesome / Rub-A-Dub ) I divided my background into 3 layers, Grass, water and sky. To build grass area, I used Lawn Fawn Simple stitched Hillside Border die and Lawn fawn Simple Grassy Hillsides die and ink blended with Tim holtz distress Oxide ink in Twisted Citron. To build water area, I used Lawn Fawn Stitched hillside border die and ink blended with Tim holtz distress oxide ink in Salty Ocean. For the last layer for the sky, I simply added very little tint of Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink in Tattered Rose. I assembled every pieces I prepared and stamped the sentiment with Memento ink in Tuxedo Black.


Thanks for stopping by! I hope you are inspired by this post and build your own scene!

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&#…
