Really High Five Interactive Magic Iris

Hiya, friends! It's been a minute since I have been on the Butterfly Reflections, Ink blog and I am happy to be here sharing a little inspiration with something I have been longing to play with... the Lawn Fawn Magic Iris!

Follow along with me, Janette Kausen, as I walk you through the details of this Really High Five Magic Iris interactive card. The folks over at Lawn Fawn are dang clever in creating these easy to assemble projects. Add a touch of creativity and we've got a charmer every time!

Begin project by first die cutting and assembling the Magic Iris unit. Find a detailed and easy to follow tutorial HERE, by the darling Kelly Marie over at Lawn Fawn.

Set Magic Iris aside and ink blend Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide inks onto 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" white cardstock using the Lawn Fawn Cloudy Stencil.

Splatter blended panel with Lawn Fawn Liquid Stardust for supremely sparkly detail. Die cut the panel with the Lawn Fawn Magic Iris Add-On Lawn Cut.

Stamp the center detail on the closed Magic Iris slider portions with a MISTI (with foam insert removed) or an acrylic block with Hero Arts Intens-ified Black ink. Fill in any stamping gaps with a black marker, or if you're brave (and believe you me, I had my fingers crossed and was saying a little prayer) turn the Magic Iris to back and Purple Tape the sliders in the closed position. Turn to front and carefully take the top two rings off of the Magic Iris. Set them aside in the same orientation they were removed. Stamp and mask balloons to fill area. 

Copic color balloons in the closed position and then reassemble Magic Iris. Slide window open and color any exposed white areas on the sliders themselves.

Stamp, mask and Copic color a few friends waving hi on one of the leftover circle from the center of the Magic Iris. While they are masked, pop the circle into the cloudy panel, realign stencil over masked circle but under cloudy panel.  Carefully remove cloudy panel and blend the clouds across the circle for continuity.

Stamp, Copic color and die cut fox, balloons and strings. White Detail heat emboss sentiments on black cardstock.

Finally, assembly! Adhere Magic Slider to back of cloudy blended panel in the closed position, matching pull tab to opening. Add two layers of standard foam tape above and below Magic Iris unit to level panel being careful to not inhibit sliding action. Adhere to 4" x 5 1/4" black cardstock. Adhere to rainbow print from Lawn Fawn's Hello Sunshine Remix paper pack. Last - adhere finished project to folded card base.

Bet you won't stop sliding that lil' cutie anytime soon! I cannot wait to make another. So fun!

xo, Janette

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

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 vel
