You Make Me Happy - Lawn Fawn

Hello everyone,

I'm here guesting with a Lawn Fawn card for you today.

Our family enjoys camping and makes us happy but tenting it isn't always fun in rainy weather so we thought we would get a trailer.  So this card is inspired by our upcoming camping season and I can't wait to see all those beautiful stars in the night sky.

Now on to my card.

I used the LF Happy trails stamps and dies and coloured them in with my copics (colours listed below).


I used clear embossing powder to stamp the stars from Upon a Star stamp set and heat set with me heat gun. Then I used Black Soot and Faded Jeans and blended them for the night sky and took a dry tissue and wiped off the excess ink. I then blended in the Peeled Paint for the grass.



I stamped the trailer and trees on white card stock with Copic Friendly black ink and colour them in with my copics and cut them out with the matching dies.  I added them to the card with foam tape.  To give it a bit of dimension I added two layers of foam tape to the lefthand tree, one to the trailer and glued the righthand tree directly onto the card.

I put a couple of sentiments from the Happy Happy Happy stamp set and used black ink to stamp it at the bottom.  I took the Spectrum Noir glitter pen and added some to the stars and the trailer.







Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit BRI Shops, Venessa has a brand new Storefront and it's even better than before!!

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 …
