Hey there everyone!  It's been a while, but I am over the top excited to be with you today!  Here in AZ summer is still going strong.  The temps are well over 100 everyday and the only thing keeping me sane is creating things with a cooler theme.

Today I am sharing one of those creations.  I saw the Lawn Fawn release and just went all googly eyed over it.  Without further ado, here is what I made:

Here is how I made the card step by step.

1. First I stamped the images from the Lawn Fawn Spooky Village with Gina K Amalgam ink and colored all them with Copics and die cut them out with the coordinating Lawn Fawn Spooky Village dies.
2.  I die cut the background using the Lawn Fawn Flipping Awesome Add-On dies and inked it up with Wild Honey Oxide Ink, Picked Raspberry Oxide Ink, Seedless Preserves Oxide Ink and Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink.
3. I then created a strip of "grass" using the scalloped die in the Flipping Awesome die, inked it with Mowed Lawn Oxide ink and adhered it to the bottom of the inked background.
4.  I then adhered the background to the card base with foam adhesive and made the scene by adhering the houses and other images with thin foam squares.
5.  I stamped the sentiment, added white lines with a white gel pen to the houses and dots to the sky to finish off the card.

I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I enjoyed making it!  Hope your day is fabulous!!

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

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
