Welcome to the Neighborhood with Lawn Fawn

Happy Thursday crafty friends, Ashley D. here again!  Today I have a simple card I created to accompany a little gift basket I put together to welcome a newcomer to our scenic little town.  I began by ink blending a sky backdrop from Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean onto Bristol Smooth cardstock, die cut with Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables (trimmed to 3.25” square). 

For the scenic backdrop, I die cut mountains in kraft brown and white cardstocks using Lawn Fawn Stitched Mountain Borders.  I added a forest scape by die cutting tree and grass lines using Lawn Fawn Forest Border and Lawn Fawn Simple Grassy Hillsides in green cardstock.  I sponged a bit of Memento Cottage Ivy ink to the tops of the trees and tips of grass blades for a little added dimension.  For the street, I used the Lawn Fawn Simple Road Border, die cut in black and yellow cardstock.   

I stamped the house, car, and moving boxes from Lawn Fawn Happy Village in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, in addition to the trees from Lawn Fawn Yeti, Set, Go. All images were colored with Copic markers – House (Y000, Y00, Y11, Y02, BG000, BG01), Car (R02, R05, R17, N1, N2, N3, N5, BG000, BG01), Trees (YG13, YG17, G28), Boxes (E41, E43, R02, R05, N1, N3).  I added a bit of white highlights to each image with a Gelly Roll 08 pen, and die cut them using the coordinating Happy Village and Yeti, Set, Go Lawn Cuts.  

For a little extra touch, I also stamped the small heart from Lawn Fawn Village Shops, colored with Copic R02 and R05.  I fussy cut it, and then adhered it to the front door of the house.  I attached all the background images to the square base with tape runner and then the images with foam adhesive.  For a final touch, I added a welcome banner, stamped from the same Happy Village set and die cut with the smallest Lawn Fawn Everyday Sentiment Banners.  

I attached the square to a yellow base, leaving a 1/16” border, and then onto a white scallop square.  Since I didn’t have a square scallop die, I cut down the large scallop rectangle from the Mama Elephant Waverly Framed Tags Creative Cuts instead., layering two on top of each other to make a square.  

To complete the card, I then layered it onto 4.25” square card base with foam adhesive for depth.  Hope they like my little surprise!

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

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

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
