Magic Color Slider - Lawn Fawn

Happy Tuesday fellow crafters! Danielle here up on the BRI blog with a fun interactive card featuring Lawn Fawn's Magic Color Slider and their new Oh Gnome stamp set.  This was a fun card to make and I especially love the final reveal!


I started off ink blending a panel using Distress Ink Oxides in Tumbled Glass, and Salty Ocean.  I then ran it through my die cutting machine using Lawn Fawn Stitched Cloud Backdrop: Portrait die.  I love this die because it easily creates a beautiful cloud background with a stitched edge.  Then using a piece of Cilantro cardstock, I ran the Lawn Fawn Grassy Border die through my die cutting machine. I stamped my sentiment from the new Lawn Fawn Simply Celebrate Spring stamp set.  To create my flowers I used the Straight Flower Border die and ran through my machine 3 times.  Once on green cardstock and then once on Sticky Note and another on Sunflower Lawn Fawn Cardstock.  I adhered my flowers first directly on my ink blended panel using tape adhesive and my grass directly on top using foam adhesive for some dimension.


Now it was time to make my magic color slide. (the fun part lol)  I started off running the Magic Color Slider die through my die cutting machine using a piece of patterned paper from the Spring Fling 6x6 paper pad.  This die comes with all the components you will need to create the slider.  I stamped my images from the Oh Gnome stamp set and also used a masking technique to have my gnome sitting on the cute mushroom.  Once my images were stamped on the inside of my slider I colored with various copic markers.


Once, your inside images are stamped you can simply adhere a piece of Acetate on top to create the "window".  I sealed my slider and now I can stamp the same images in the same exact spot on the acetate.  I simply line them up with my colored images.  Now I recommend using StazOn ink for this step as it does exactly what it says...it stays on! I've tried other premium dye inks and they kind of wipe right off the acetate.  


And this is the fun part...the full reveal when you pull up on the tab and it goes from looking like a plain stamped image to a full color image!! I must have pulled the tab up at least 10 times just out of pure excitement!! I adhered directly on top of my ink blended panel and added some cute mushrooms in the grass.  I hope you enjoyed this card because it was so easy and fun to make!  This is such a great die because you can you with any stamp sets that you may already have or you can visit the shop and pick up some new ones to try!! 


Wishing a fantastic week and make sure you stop by the shop!! See you next Tuesday!

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! :)
With the change of seasons a…
