Magic Picture Changer - Happy Anniversary

Hello and happy Tuesday everyone!! Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! Danielle here up on the BRI blog with my first ever interactive card!! Once I saw the new Lawn Fawn Magic Picture Changer die, I knew I had to dig in and give it a go!

It is our 5 year anniversary this week so I thought I would make a card to celebrate us!! Now I have never tried doing an interactive card before mostly because I was intimidated and didn't know where to start, but this die is so easy to use and can be used with any stamps you may already have!   For my first image I used the new Lawn Fawn stamp set Open Me.  I loved the little sign and chicks that are in this stamp set.  I stamped my sign image on a piece of smooth bristol cardstock.  *Tip: you don't want to use a heavy cardstock as it may prevent from sliding* (I learned this the hard way)  Now I know I wanted to do some ink blending in the background, therefore I stamped the sign image on a post it so I could mask it while I ink blended the background.  I used Distress ink oxides in Mermaid Lagoon and Tumbled Glass.  Then I stamped the words using Lawn Fawn Happy Happy Happy Add On-Family set.  I love this set because you can mix and match and has every name for each family member.  Once everything was stamped on my first panel, I ran in through my die cutting machine and as you can see it creates tiny little slits across the image.  

For my second image, I wanted to try something a little different and make it more personal.  I seen it before some other crafty ladies using personal photos so I thought I would give it a try.  This took some trial and error as I first printed the picture on lightweight cardstock which I soon found out it ripped to easily when sliding, and too heavy of a cardstock which I found out gets stuck because it's too thick.  So I did have some medium weight photo paper that worked best.  Once I had my picture printed, I used the other die that comes in the set for the second portion of the magic picture changer.  Now that I have both pieces cut I am ready to assemble.  This was easy enough to do as you just "weave" together the pieces.  *Tip: use an anti-static powder pouch to run along the edges of slides.  This helps slide smoother.  Seeing it change "magically" was the most fun part!! I was so excited! 

Now that my slider is all together, I used the Magic Picture Changer Add On.  This add on is great because it has a large decorative frame and different pull tab.  I used Lawn Fawn 6x6 Gotta Have Gingham paper pad for the frame and pull tab.  This paper pad is so pretty with soft hues perfect for a lighter touch.  For the sentiment I used the same Lawn Fawn Happy Happy Happy Add On Family set and the coordinating die for the word happy.  I used versamark embossing ink and heat embossed using Lawn Fawn white embossing powder.  I then adhered to my front panel using foam adhesive tape.  For the little chick I used from the same Lawn Fawn Open Me set, colored with copic and die cut with the coordinating die.  I adhered using foam adhesive.  I added some red hearts around the chick with red dye ink and added some Nuvo Glaze to add dimension and a little love!  I adhered to a piece of Lawn Fawn Wood Grain Neutrals Cardstock.  I love this cardstock as it's textured with a real wood grain look.  Plus I thought it was perfect for a more masculine feel.

I hope you enjoyed this card and inspires you to try more interactive cards!! This was fun to make and I hope my hubby likes just as much!! Make sure you stop by the shop to pick up these fabulous new goodies!! Have a great rest of your week and I'll see you next Tuesday! xoxoxoxo

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&#…

Open DT Call for Spring/early Summer Term!

Happy Spring, everyone! The weather here is... confused. LOL Thursday we had 50 degrees, Saturday we had 10 inches of snow and today it was 50 again. We just celebrated my son's 21st birthday on Thursday as many of you know from taking advantage of the celebration sale! Thanks for that. I spent all day packing and shipping orders during the day and then went out for dinner (and his first legal beer) when he got out of work that night. I honestly can't believe he's TWENTY-ONE, such a milestone and it's weird having a man child. HA! Yesterday, we spent the snow day in pjs and doing nothing which was a welcomed change. Today, my husband took our younger son skiing and my daughter and I had a girls' day which was nice. We went out to breakfast, did a little shopping and saw Beauty & the Beast. That's the lowdown over my way. I hope you've all been enjoying the weather, your families, crafting, work or whatever makes you HAPPY! :)
