Wheeeee! A Quadruple Slider Card!

Hi everyone and happy Wednesday! Ashley here, and I'm so excited to be back on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog. I just received my order of Lawn Fawn goodies from their new Spring 2020 release from the Butterfly Reflections Ink store (thanks Vanessa!) and I couldn't wait to play with them. The first card I made involved the cute jumping animals from the Really High Five stamp set.


This card combines multiple products from the new release. First, I stamped out the adorable jumping animals from the Lawn Fawn Really High Five stamp set in Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink and coloured them in with Copic markers before cutting them out, leaving a small white border around the edges.


For the background, cut out pieces from the following Lawn Fawn patterned paper packs:

I used the Lawn Fawn Simple Stitched Hillside Border die to cut the grass piece and adhered it on top of the clouds.


It's hard to tell in the pictures, but this card is actually a quadruple slider - each of the animals slides in a mini-channel to look like it's jumping! To assemble the slider mechanism, I cut four separate slider channels into the cloud piece using the Lawn Fawn Slide on Over dies. In some cases, the smallest die in that set was still too long, so I partially die-cut it (meaning I only placed the top cutting plate over part of the die, so only part of it cut out).

I taped foam behind the cloud panel, making sure to leave lots of space for the slider elements to move around. Then, I carefully placed dimes where each of the slider channels was cut, and adhered the whole panel down onto the card base. I could then add My Favorite Things Slider Elements to each dime, and stick each critter directly onto one.


The last step was to adhere the trampoline and jumping marks, and to stamp out the sentiment that comes with the stamp set to make it a fun birthday card!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! To see a short video clip of the sliding mechanism in action, head over to my Instagram account at Ashley Young Paper. I look forward to sharing another card next week!

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…

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 …

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&#…
