Mom, I Love You S'More!

Hello everyone! It's Ashley Ebben with my first ever Design Team post! I'm so happy to meet you! I am thrilled to be joining the design team at Butterfly Reflections, Ink with such talented ladies! And of course, I'm super excited to share my cards with you all on Fridays!

Mother's Day is this weekend in the US, so I thought I would share a cute card for anyone who needs a bit of last minute inspiration before Sunday. I decided to use Lawn Fawn products to create a special card for my mom.



I originally got the idea for this card from the Lawn Fawn Love You S'More set as well as from a game my mom and I used to play when I was little. We would always argue back and forth, "I love you more!" "No, I love you more!"

I started by blending some Lawn Fawn Mermaid Ink in the middle of a piece of white cardstock and splattered a bit of gold watercolor across it. I cut a 3/8" strip from Lawn Fawn Mermaid cardstock for the sentiment. I love this color so much! I knew I wanted to use the Lawn Fawn Scripty Mom die, so I wanted to recreate the "I love you s'more" sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Love You S'More set with a simpler font. I took the "I love you" from Lawn Fawn Let's Toast and the "S'More" from Lawn Fawn Sweet Friends. I then used my MISTI to stamp them in the center of the sentiment strip with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Zing Gold Metallic powder.

I adhered then sentiment strip to the white ink blended panel and die cut the whole piece with the largest rectangle in the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables so the stitching would be on the edge of the sentiment strip as well. I just love stitched dies! They find their way onto the majority of my cards.

I centered the stitched die cut onto a piece of plaid paper cut to card size, then used the Lawn Fawn Scripty Mom die on the same paper to get a plaid die cut. I wanted the "Mom" to have some dimension so I cut it out three more times from Lawn Fawn Mermaid cardstock. I adhered the three die cuts together then glued the plaid die cut on top slightly offset to show the Mermaid cardstock underneath and put it on the card.



I stamped the s'more from Lawn Fawn Sweet Friends twice in Memento black ink, added some cute smiley faces, and colored with Copics before cutting with Lawn Fawn Sweet Friends dies. I stamped and cut the arms/legs so I could arrange the s'mores on the card holding hands for extra sweetness!

For a few finishing details, I made the chocolate look extra melty with some Glossy Accents and added a bit of sparkle with Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear jewels!

I hope you all enjoyed my first post! I loved sharing it with you! See you next Friday!

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 …
