Lawn Fawn - I Love You(Calyptus)

Hello crafty friends and Happy New Year! I am so honored and excited to be joining the amazing Butterfly Reflections Ink Design Team with so many talented ladies!  Today I am sharing my first card using the latest Lawn Fawn's I Love You (Calyptus) stamp set and other amazing products from their latest release.  Once I saw this adorable Koala I couldn't wait to use it especially with Valentine's Day right around the corner!



To start my card, I ink blended my panel on smooth Bristol paper using Distress Ink Oxides in Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar, and Picked Raspberry.  Once dried, I then used Lawn Fawn Polka Heart Backdrop Portrait and ran it through my die cutting machine.  I removed the little hearts and placed them aside while I glued my ink blended panel to my card base.  I decided to place the hearts back in but reversed the colors.  I thought this technique gave it more contrast and extra detail.


For my hearts I used Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Heart Stackables Die with their Perfectly Plaid Spring paper.  I glued down the larger heart directly to my panel and the smaller heart I adhered using foam adhesive.  I stamped the Koala using Altenew Evening Gray Crisp Dye Ink and colored with various Copic Sketch markers.  I added some Lawn Fawn Chunky Glitter to the smallest heart that the koala is holding.  I adhered my koala and the heart using foam adhesive.


To finish off my card, I used the coordinating sentiment which I stamped using Altenew Razzleberry Crisp Dye Ink onto a piece of Lawn Fawn Fake Tan Cardstock.  I then added some Lawn Fawn Prisma Glitter underneath my sentiment.  I adhered my sentiment using foam adhesive to my card panel.


I hope you enjoy this card as much as I did creating it.  Thank you for joining me here today and hope you have a fabulous day!

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 …
