Spooky Village Surprise


 Hi friends! This is Crystal here today sharing a spooky slider card with you today featuring the new fall release Spooky Village stamp set by Lawn Fawn.  One of the things I love most about all of the Lawn Fawn products is that they are designed to coordinate uniformly across the entire product line.  This means they are perfect for mixing and matching! Even if I didn't necessarily do that on today's card, I love having that option.

I recently learned how to assemble the Lawn Fawn Double Slider Surprise Die and I've been making them ever since!  You can see my others samples here and here.  I strongly encourage newbies, or even those who might need a refresher, to watch the Introductory Videos on YouTube by Kelly Marie Alvarez (the owner of Lawn Fawn) and they are a game changer.  Whether it is the Double Slider Surprise Die, the Lawn Fawn Pivot Pop Up Die, the Lawn Fawn Magic Picture Changer Die or any other Lawn Fawn product, she walks you through step-by-step instructions on how to assemble these products.  I promise, it makes all the difference and you will feel confident and be successful in putting this card together.  If I can do it all by myself, so can you!


 The base of this A2 sized card is made from black cardstock.  I used a scrap piece of designer paper for the first 5 1/4" x 4" layer of this card.  I wish I could tell you where this "trick-or-treat" paper came from because it's so fun, but I can't recall!  I was able to assemble the surprise slider die and adhere it directly to the center of my card.

I stamped all of the images from the Lawn Fawn Spooky Village stamp set in Memento Tuxedo black ink on Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock.  I colored in all of the images using my Copic alcohol ink markers.  I added small highlights to each of the colored images with a Sakura White Gelly pen
I die cut the grass from a celery cardstock using the Chunky Grass die from Waffle Flower.   I adhered the grass to the bottom of the center component of the card and the two side pull-outs. I adhered a black chevron paper to both sides of the pull-outs when I was making the double slider surprise base.  I used a piece of orange pattered cardstock for the front portion of the slider. 



 *As a little tip, when you begin to adhere the pieces to your card, be sure that the pieces on the slider pull-out portion of the card are adhered directly to the cardstock.  You cannot put foam adhesive or pop dots on the slider because then it won't work effectively.   For the front of the card, you can pop them up all you want!  Lastly I stamped the sentiment "Ghostly Greetings" on a scrap piece of white cardstock also in Memento Tuxedo black ink and popped it up with foam adhesive.


Making interactive cards is so much fun - and a lot less scary with good instruction and lots of practice!  

Thank you for visiting and happy creating!

XO,

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 …
